About Our Clinic
At Alchemy Radiant Health we trust in the body’s innate wisdom to self-correct almost all health problems when given the appropriate natural treatments and guidance. At our beautiful Encinitas clinic in North San Diego County, we work with our patients to rebalance the body and mind to experience radiant health.
We combine the science of advanced testing in functional medicine, genomics, and the gut microbiome with a truly holistic systems-based understanding of the body from Chinese Medicine to help you restore wellness.
We work with patients as consultants over a period of 1-12 months to identify root causes and support you through your holistic healing plan.

We are each born with our allotted amount of Jing.
The ancient Chinese knew that radiant health was the birthright of man.
They believed that each person was born with a certain amount of jing, or life essence. Jing gave us our will power to fulfill our life purpose, that which we had come to earth to accomplish.
Once our jing was used up, then our lives ended, whether successful or not. We squander our jing through poor eating, unbalanced lifestyles, following other's plans for us and ignorance of the Laws of Nature.
Early Chinese doctors or Taoists believed that the goal of life was to “Live the Tao” – a life of radiant health and longevity, in harmony with Nature.
It all starts with the food that we eat.
Our devitalized soils and fast food mentality has led to one of the most affluent countries in the world ranking last in a study by the National Research Council. Americans live shorter lives and experience more injuries and illness than people in other high income countries. We are overweight and sedentary.
A shortcut or easy solution such as weight loss pills or the latest supplement craze will not solve the problem that lies deep in our hearts and the stressful lives we live. We need to be willing to make real changes. We need to be clear on our life's purpose, live our deepest passion, eat nutrient dense high vibration foods that superpower our Qi or life force, and recharge our body's electrics.
We need a comprehensive program to truly heal.
Without a systematic program that covers nutrition, Qi flows, and rectifying long standing chronic health challenges, we never truly transform our lives into radiant health. Instead, we merely stave of our slow demise into chronic ill-health.
We exist in a state of sub-health. Sub-health is defined by WHO as a state between health and disease when all the necessary physical and chemical tests show negative results, but the person experiences all kinds of discomfort and even pain.
