Less than two weeks after the Bastyr University California Grand Opening, the state’s first and only accredited school of naturopathic medicine today announces the addition of a new teaching clinic.

Bastyr University Clinic opened September 24, 2012, and is located on the University’s campus, 4106 Sorrento Valley Boulevard in San Diego. The teaching clinic gives students the opportunity to learn together while offering stellar natural health care to all people, with services ranging from prevention to optimal health, and acute to chronic disease.   

“The clinic will provide cutting-edge health care and focus initially on naturopathic primary care, mind-body issues and nutrition,” said Bastyr University California Vice President Moira Fitzpatrick, PhD, ND, FICPP, CHT. “Our policy is to identify and treat the cause of the disease while supporting the strengths of the individual. When the individual is supported, we trust the healing power of nature to heal.”

Clinic services will include naturopathic primary care, nutrition counseling, botanical medicine, physical medicine, hydrotherapy, craniosacral therapy, mind-body-spirit medicine and women’s health care (including hormonal support and annual exams).

“We are proud of the great strides made in such a short amount of time at our California campus,” said Bastyr University President Daniel K. Church, PhD. “We believe the integrative clinic will provide the best of all medical worlds for patients, and provide an exemplary training ground for the next generation of naturopathic doctors.”

The clinic will offer a 20 percent discount to seniors and students. It will be cash-based and accept insurance as soon as the state covers naturopathic medical visits. Clinic hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with an hour of closure for lunch. Additional evening hours are planned in the future. To schedule an appointment, please call the Bastyr University Clinic at 858.246.9730 or email SDClinic[at]Bastyr[dot]edu.
