Navigating a health issue can be stressful and confusing even under the best circumstances. If you want to take control of your health, check out East West Health. The clinic prides itself on providing patients with the highest level of care by having acupuncturists, chiropractors, western medical doctors and more working side-by-side to offer medical diagnosis and consultation, lifestyle and wellness programs, educational classes, allergy testing, medical weight-loss systems, stem-cell therapy and more.

Cambria Kem, East West's marketing director, has been with the business for three years and says clinic personnel have a love for holistic medicine. "We are unlike any other experience that you have had," she says. "We look at the root cause of your health [issue], not just the symptoms."

Kem says that East West's mission, ultimately, is to change health care in America. It's a mission that other East West employees are passionate about.

Rebecca Conde is a licensed acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist and nutrition consultant who believes the clinic is uniquely positioned to allow for a high success rate among patients. "We have a dedicated team of practitioners that analyze all angles of health to provide optimal care," she says.

Wellness coordinator Maddie Keyes thinks East West is a special clinic not only because it combines eastern and western medicine traditions, but also because the clinic is passionate about educating patients about their health. "We don't want to just give our patients answers," she says. "We want to involve them in every step of the process so they can be as committed to their health as we are."

Keyes, who has been with East West two and a half years, loves her job because the clinic gives patients hope. "Oftentimes, people come to us as a last resort because they've tried everything else and not gotten the results they're looking for," she says. "[Our] clinic builds our patients up from rock bottom and empowers them to take charge of their health. I love seeing the smiling faces of our patients as they start to live their lives again."

East West Health has locations in - Salt Lake City, Park City, Layton - and St. George.

Medical assistant Sierra Palmer has worked at East West for about a year and agrees with Keyes. "Our approach to health is totally different than anywhere I have been" she says. "Our providers work together to cover all aspects of health care."

Christine Campbell, chief financial officer of East West, encourages anyone who has been looking for a new health care provider to check out one of the clinic's locations. "If you are looking for a comprehensive, holistic approach to your health and wellbeing, we are the place," she says.
