Philosophy & Principles

The Integrative Medicine Philosophy

Integrative Medicine embraces conventional medicine and complementary therapies that are based in science. It focuses on the whole person – body, mind, and spirit – with a strong emphasis on the patient/provider partnership. The integrative philosophy believes that health is more than the absence of disease, a person is more that their symptoms, healing requires a whole-person approach and empowered patients make long-term and lasting changes that support healing and optimum health.

Ten Principles of Patient Care

  1. First do no harm; utilize the most natural, least invasive, and least toxic treatment possible.
  2. Identify and treat the cause; use the symptoms of disease as clues to identify and treat the underlying causes of illness.
  3. The healing powers of nature; embrace the body’s inherent ability to heal itself.
  4. Treat the whole person; approach the body as an integrated whole which includes mind, body, and spirit.
  5. Doctor as partner; collaborate with your patients, help guide them and personalize their journey to optimal health.
  6. Doctor as teacher; educate patient on lifestyle changes to achieve and maintain optimal health.
  7. Prevention; focus on promoting health & wellness now as a way of preventing disease later.
  8. Patient centered healing; personalize care because it’s about the patient!
  9. Create a healing environment; provide a calm sanctuary for the patient that both heals and models a healing environment that assists optimal health & wellbeing.
  10. Embody a caring approach; treat the patient in a loving way which in itself is a very powerful healing force.

“Imagine being excited to see your Doctor because you know you will learn new ways to heal.  That’s what I feel every time I see Dr. Trainor. His passion and positivity inspire me to make lifestyle changes. He put me on a natural blood sugar supplement and my blood sugar numbers came down dramatically. I am managing my diabetes better than ever under Dr. Trainor’s guidance. If you are lucky enough to find your way to Dr. Trainor, congratulations. You’re on your way to better health.”

Cliff H. - San Diego, CA

“Dr. Lam is awesome!   She changed my perspective on how to handle physical and mental health. I didn’t know if I was going to improve, but because of her I’ve made significant progress.

Thanks to Dr. Lam I didn’t have to load up on prescribed medicine and instead I’ve turned towards food/supplements to heal. I’m very thankful for how much she cares and for setting me up to succeed. Dr. Lam is a fantastic listener, healer…I highly recommend scheduling appointment with her & listening to what she says.”

Todd C. - Carmel Valley - San Diego, CA

“This practice offers both traditional medicine and natural medicine. I see Leslie Karr, FNP who brings a functional medicine style, and has a compassionate approach. She helped me with hormone balance, thyroid balance and nutrition, as well as epigenetics! This practice offers it all! Definitely recommend!!”

Soraya P.

“Had the best experience with everyone we came into contact with at the center, including over the phone. I brought my mom into see Dr. Trainor and I’m still in awe of his charm, kindness, great advice, helpfulness… I could go on & on. I’ve never met a doc like him before. Offering to let my mom wear his white doc coat bc she was cold, sending her down to get an IV drip at our first appt, and offering so much advice & direction when I asked for it. I can’t wait to bring my mom back, Dr. Trainor gave us hope. He is truly one of a kind. Also the staff in the IV room were great too (Melissa I’m talking about you!) And for the receptionist who saw a cancellation and offered it to us when the waitlist is 6 weeks long, thank you!!!!”

Hanah S. - Los Angeles, CA

“I currently went for neck and back pain that I had from an accident and saw Dr. Haley. I left feeling great, both my back & neck stopped hurting.

The front office was a big help, they assisted me with all the paperwork that had to be done and attended to me the entire time I was there. Most definitely would go back!”

Laura A.

“This is my favorite place the get medical attention. Leslie Karr doesn’t just treat you symptomatically. She treats you holistically. Her treatments changed my life. I feel healthier than I did in my teens and twenties. I have high levels of energy, I sleep well, and I don’t feel depressed or have anxiety attacks anymore. She spends quality time working to find the best approach to helping you. She’s genuine and it’s obvious she cares. So if I have to wait a little longer, I’m okay with that since I know she is devoting herself to another patient the same way she will me.”

Brent Sellstrom - CA
“I have been to many clinics and specialists for my condition and none have come close to level of care and professionalism that I get at CHWB.  All the staff are kind and friendly, and most importantly have knowledge of how to work with insurance and make the billing process very smooth. All the nurses are great , especially Melissa and Jacilyn, they are super professional and very caring . Dr Lam is a very sharp and attentive doctor with a broad knowledge for treating illness. She introduced me to NAD IV therapy through my recovery process and I have noticed great results. I feel more energized and felt supported knowing I had a great team beside me. She gets get to the root cause and has helped me greatly, I am so much better then when i first started and encourage all my family and friends to come here!”
Sean J.

You can tell from the minute you walk in this place is top notch. Melissa and the rest of the staff always make me feel as if i’m visiting family!”
