    5 Things to Know About the AMCH Integrative Medicine Clinic

     
    Each year, roughly 4 million Americans turn to homeopathy to treat some of the conditions they suffer from, according to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. It’s a growing industry that many people are turning to and many others are just beginning to learn about, despite the practice having been around for some 200 years. The American Medical College of Homeopathy (AMCH), located in Phoenix, has opened a clinic making alternative medicine more affordable and accessible.

    “The new center aims to give people an opportunity to get homeopathy, as well as be an important resource for teaching and research,” explains Dr. Edward Kondrot, founder of the Healing The Eye & Wellness Center and the new clinical director of the center. “We are excited to invite people to the center for treatment, classes, and to participate in research.”

    The AMCH Integrative Medicine Clinic opened in early January 2014, with Dr. Kondrot being appointed as the clinical director. Here are 5 things to know about the clinic:

    1. State-of-the-Art. The new center provides a much-needed solution to the growing health crises in the country. It offers advanced therapies in integrative medicine that are advanced, as well as those with traditional ties.
    2. Experienced. With Dr. Kondrot at the helm, he is responsible for recruiting doctors and overseeing clinical operations, and is a world-renowned expert in the field of homeopathy. He brings with him years of experience in providing natural treatments, especially when it involves the treatment of the eye. Joining Dr. Kondrot in providing patient services is Dr. Ruth Lim, a board certified practicing pediatrician in Mesa, Ariz. since 1980.
    3. Affordable. Each doctor at the clinic will provide a half-day of services. The patients will pay reduced fees for all therapies they receive. They have set out to make homeopathy more affordable to the masses. Patients typically pay half the customary fee for the treatments.
    4. Patient-centered. The clinic takes the approach of treating the whole patient, rather than just one symptom or issue. Therapies include those that address the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual person.
    5. Research- and teaching-based. In addition to seeing patients and providing therapies, the clinic will also be conducting research and will be training others in the field.

    “We are excited about what the clinic has to offer and how it can help so many people,” adds Dr. Kondrot. “The AMCH clinic will prove to be a useful resource to those in the community, as well as those seeking to enter the homeopathy field.”

    Patient services will be provided each Wednesday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The AMCH Integrative Medicine Clinic is located at 1951 W. Camelback Road, Suite 300 in Phoenix, Ariz.
