About the Practice

Located in La Mesa, California, New Beginnings Health Care is San Diego’s most progressive, integrative medical center. The experienced team, under the medical direction of the practice’s founder Patricia Deckert, DO, includes a mix of practitioners who specialize in both traditional and alternative therapies, including osteopathic, naturopathic, and holistic medicine. The dedicated team focuses on healing the body by identifying the root cause of illness, instead of focusing on the disease or symptoms.

In addition to managing your primary medical needs, the team at New Beginnings Health Care specializes in thyroid disorders and joint pain. To improve your overall health and well-being, patients of the integrative practice also have access to nutrition guidance, intravenous therapy, and hormone therapy. With their own on-site draw center, New Beginnings Healthcare also offers blood draws.

New Beginnings Health Care also participates in the MDVIP Program. Dr. Deckert selected this program so she could offer patients seeking more extensive care the proactive, holistic, custom care they deserve.

New Beginnings Health Care is dedicated to bringing change through restoration and healing, working with each patient to create a positive force for personal empowerment. To schedule an appointment at the integrative medical center, call the office today or book online.

Released January 29, 2019 
By Elisabeth Yaotani (Author), Patricia Deckert D.O. (Author), Amy Myers M.D. (Foreword)

The first time that I met Elisabeth Yaotani was when she came to me as a patient at New Beginnings Health Care in San Diego, California. Elisabeth was looking for an integrative approach to combat her interstitial cystitis. I worked closely with Elisabeth on her journey to overcome IC (Interstitial Cystitis), and when she asked that I become involved with a book she was writing, I agreed as I believed that her message and my expertise could apply to almost any chronic illness. Our partnership has resulted in the book “How I Got My Life Back.” 

Elisabeth and I will help you understand how diet and lifestyle choices can be readily changed to ease the toxic burden on your immune system, reduce your stress, and heal your gut. We can help you to achieve the goal of strengthening your immune system with a personalized diet that addresses your unique requirements and your genetic components. We walk you through the steps that you need for optimal liver functions for detoxification and the use of high-quality supplements to eliminate your symptoms and restore your balance and overall health. 

I encourage you to take a moment to read this comprehensive guide. It will not only offer information and insight, but it can be a blueprint that you use for understanding and life-changing actions.

Our Mission

We are a health center with a focus on healing and prevention rather than suppressing symptoms. Our clinic concentrates on preventing future sickness, with a directive towards healing the body naturally. Our professional staff has dedicated their lives to bringing change through restoration and healing and we work with you to create a positive force for your personal empowerment. Our team has collective degrees and experience in conventional medicine and yet chose to come together to practice integrative medicine for the good of our patients. We combine naturopathic, conventional, functional, and holistic modalities to bring the best of each to our practice.

JOIN US in our race to prevent sickness, JOIN US in our fight to heal instead of manage, and JOIN US in our journey to change the healthcare industry.
