Welcome! My name is Dr Shontel Welby.
A native of Australia, I received my medical degree from the University of Sydney, Sydney Australia. I completed an internship, residency & Physicians( Specialist) Training Program at St George Hospital. Working in various clinical & hospitals, it didn’t take long until I began aware of the shortcomings of modern medicine Subsequently, I returned to study Integrated Medicine (holistic medicine) & Sports Medicine at Swinburne University. My continued post graduate studies into the various areas under the umbrella of ‘Integrated/Holistic Medicine’ eventually bought me to Los Angeles, California where I am currently in private practice.
Though I believe in the scientific merit of certain therapeutic drugs, I do not prescribe them now. And, I do not use them myself. I understand that surgery has its place in the treatment of certain life-threatening accidents and diseases. However, I advocate the use of less invasive, more natural methods in most cases.
As I integrated & applied the natural medicine I was learning to the patients under my care as a traditional MD, I became truly amazed at the regenerative abilities of proper nutrition, exercise & natural medicines. These natural treatments can involve any of the following: Bowel Management, Iridology, Herbal Medicines, Homeopathic Medicines, Supplements (Enzymes, Minerals, Vitamins, Fatty Acids, Water Therapy (Hydrotherapy)
It is my understanding, & my experience in over ten years of practice that
"Nature Always Heals Given The Opportunity”

holistic/natural medical treatments through medical diagnosis,
Womens’s and mens health,
