News from Coachella Valley's Integrated Health Community

About Us

People from all over the world come to the Coachella Valley for health, vitality and healing.

Upon moving to this beautiful place in 2008, I came to understand that this community offers both top notch medical care and a vast array of preventive and natural medicine. I also realized that the Valley is a leader in “integrated health care” where conventional medicine and alternative practices are coming together. The Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine defines this practice as “medicine that confirms the importance of the practitioner/patient relationship; focuses on the whole person; is evidence-based; and uses all appropriate modalities, health care professionals and disciplines to achieve health and healing.”

Desert Health ® was created to promote this union and the Valley’s many medical facilities, modalities, and practitioners who keep us healthy and help us heal. Those professionals partaking in this practice all share the common goal of putting the patient first. Our goal is to promote prevention and “whole person” healing, to recognize accomplishments, celebrate community, revel in sports, educate and inform to the best of our ability, and to encourage our readers to “get out and do!”

We are a complimentary paper for locals and visitors alike found throughout the Coachella Valley.

We thank you for reading and wish you the best of health!
