Diane Cridennda, LAC
Dr. Diane (click here for Dr. Diane's Bio) has over 20 years of experience in Western Medicine. Diane was a Radiologic Technologist and had a career change after a debilitaing illness was corrected by Traditional Chinese Medicine. Our unique model of East meets West gives you the best possible treatments which are unique to your specific needs. Because we are experienced in both models, we are able to see the Chinese Medicine view of your pattern of disharmony as well as the Western view or "diagnosis". We appreciate that both models have their attributes and the combination of the two will give you the best overall care; you don't have to choose one over the other. We believe that we must take advantage of the breakthrough in modern technology but we can't lose touch with the ancient wisdom of Chinese Medicine. We are dedicated to education, by arming you with knowledge!This will empower you to make good choices about your health as well as the health of your loved ones. Check the Whole Foods web site calendar for free Seminars given by East Winds. Seminars include NAET (allergy elimination), Fertility, Sports injuries and enhanced performance, Chinese Medicine 101 to mention a few.
