The Columbia Center for Integrative Medicine, (CCIMhealth), is an integrative internal medicine service with offices in the following locations:
CCIM health also offers hospital-based services in Lompoc, CA, and also offers home-based services in Los Angeles, CA.
CCIM specializes in diagnosing, reversing, preventing, and treating chronic medical illness in the scope of internal medicine via our specialized evidence-based protocols aimed at repairing the microbiome (enteroimmunology), restoring hormone balance (endocrinology), and optimizing lifestyle. We use methods in allopathic medicine and Ayurvedic medicine.
The microbiome directly affects every organ, and therefore the best way to improve any organ function is to repair the microbiome.
