Background After medical school Richard DeAndrea studied Internal Medicine and General Surgery. He wanted to understand more than one approach to medicine in an effort to bring healing methods from around the world to his patients. He decided to learn Ayurveda[], Traditional Chinese Medicine, Natural Medicine, Homeopathy, Oxygen Therapy, IV Therapy, Functional Medicine, Hypnotherapy, Kineseology, Yoga and Vipassana Meditation
Disheartened with Western medicine and the dangling carrot “cure” ideology he sought a method for healing. Along the way he experienced everything from psychic healing to psychedelic shamanism. Dr. DeAndrea will use whatever therapy he thinks will best serve the patient. He uses acupuncture[], aromatherapy, nutrition, herbology, Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, creative visualization, colon hydrotherapy, physical therapy, hypnotherapy, oxygen therapy, chelation and the traditional allopathic treatments to create personalized healing prescriptions for his clients. His approach is multidisciplinary and based in information, regeneration, and energy medicine. In an effort to prove that these techniques will heal the most impoverished with the greatest challenges to survive. He applied the these principles of healing, naturally, in South Central Los Angeles for 5 years in an area of the United States that is considered a hot bed for riots, gang warfare and drastic crimes. The results were miraculous! In 1997 NBC, ABC and Hard Copy reported that heart disease, diabetes, cancer and even AIDS cases were reversed in a little ghetto clinic when the “holy” cure was replaced with good old fashioned healing. “Curing is for pickles, healing is for people,” says DeAndrea.
