I was introduced to the California Wellness Institute through a friend who subtly suggested I visit the clinic after I stated that I absolutely must lose weight and tighten up my chin. Yes, unfortunately time marches on and leaves the signs of aging written not just on one’s face but on one’s body. It is time for some upkeep. After all, this is Hollywood!
Another friend pointed out that it is specious of me to want to turn back time and the forces of gravity. I don’t care! I reached an age milestone which I don’t care to discuss and reason went out the window.
As I found out, the California Wellness Institute is a one stop shop for everything from purification to rejuvenation to total body wellness. I could use all three, said my husband, after he dropped me off for a visit at the institute and sped away. Their services encompass guided detoxification programs, face and body sculpting, non invasive laser treatments, medical consultations, nutritional therapy, medically supervised weight loss, professional makeovers, colon hydrotherapy, pre-colonoscopy preparation, Iridology, and Ayurvedic medicine, an ancient Indian discipline employing the power of herbs for both treatment and prevention of disease. Indeed, the clinic embraces the ideology and practice of both Western and Eastern medicine.
I am on a medically supervised weight program under the aegis of Carol Christian and Dr. Eugene Rajaratnam, M.D. Carol explained to me that weight gain could be due to hormonal imbalances and these must be addressed as well in order to lose weight. If you are like me and have been dieting and exercising but have not lost weight, you may need to consult a professional for help. At California Wellness, one does not undertake just a diet, but a whole mind/body makeover including detoxification to improve general health.
The staff is knowledgeable, professional, experienced, and compassionate. Carol Christian is a certified colon therapist and organ detoxification specialist, as well as an Iridologist. Iridology is the study of the pupils of the eyes, for the purpose of detecting illness in the body, and has been an invaluable indicator for centuries. Dr. Raj, the founder of the California Wellness Center, is a urologist with unique analytical skills which enable him to detect imbalances and conditions which must be rectified to achieve one’s wellness goals. He is also a practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine, so he has the ability to combine the best of Eastern and Western medical thought. Carol and Dr. Raj rely on nearly a half century of experience to advise their clients. Renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Lance Everett Wyatt and skilled dental specialist Benjamin Rutstein are also members of the institute’s wellness team.
I am pondering various package treatments the clinic offers for neck and body lipo as well as wrinkle reversal. 60, did I let that slip out, may be the new 40, but I do not feel like it. Time for some rejuvenation!
