Speaker Topic - Integrative Well-Being
Dr. David Allen, a graduate of UCLA Medical School, has been in practice for over 30 years. Dr. Allen wrote the foreword to actress, health activist and author Suzanne Somers’ bestselling book “Slim and Sexy Forever”. While a medical student, he became interested in alternative medicine, and began a lifelong investigation into meditation, diet and nutrition, Oriental health practices (including tai chi chuan and acupuncture), and the relationship between the mind, the body, and our emotional states.
A pioneering figure in alternative/integrative medicine, Dr. Allen founded the La Jolla Clinic of Preventative Medicine, and was the Medical Director of the Center for Holistic Health in Solana Beach, California, one of the first alternative medical facilities in the United States. Currently he is in private practice in Los Angeles, and is a frequent lecturer throughout California, including at the prestigious Esalen Institute in Big Sur, and as a guest faculty member in Loyola Marymount University’s pioneering program Yoga Therapy Rx, directed by leading yoga expert Larry Payne, Ph.D.
