Our Integrative Approach

Dr. Daron Mathena’s Approach

Dr. Daron Mathena received her educational and clinical training from Pacific College of Health and Science, which offers the most up-to-date education in both Eastern and Western medicine. Modalities of Eastern medicine, including Chinese medicine theory, the complete system of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and complementary modalities of including cupping therapy and gua sha were included in the 3,532.5 credit hours completed.

The doctorate program at Pacific College of Health and Science also included different branches of Western medicine, including advanced anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, pharmacology, nutrition, orthopedic neurological examination, biochemistry, physics, and other related courses. Dr. Daron has spent many course hours reading and analyzing the most up do date research in her field, as well as creating research study design paradigms for Acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Many research papers she wrote were on the use and efficacy of Acupuncture for fertility and the improvement of Ulcerative Colitis with Chinese Medicine.

This integrative approach is advantageous in order to understand when it is necessary to request and analyze lab results and imaging, understand medications and their side effects/potential herb interactions, and be able to proficiently discuss Western medical health conditions with primary care providers and other specialists. Dr. Daron believes that a strong foundation in Western medicine is important to be able to seamlessly integrate Eastern medicine into today’s healthcare system.
