“My stomach is now quiet and my general well being is greatly improved.”

I have the utmost recommendation for Dr. Yeh and his staff after undergoing recent treatments for a stomach problem. I had been to a medical doctor and was diagnosed as having gastritis and irritable bowel syndrome and received no relief for my problem.

I decided to give Dr. Yeh a try, on my first visit he said my stomach sounded like the L.A. riots, it was constantly churning. He suggested a change in diet mainly eliminating chicken, which I did. He gave me acupuncture treatments and wonderful tea which soothed my stomach. My stomach is now quiet and my general well being is greatly improved.

Dr. Yeh spent a lot of time with me and is very caring person unlike the medical doctor I originally went to. As for his staff they also are very caring people and I cannot thank them enough for helping me when no one else would.


I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Colitis a year and half ago. I had stomach pains and diarrhea and was unable to go to school or attend church. I couldn’t do anything and had a non-existent social life. I lost a lot of my friends due to this condition. I went to a gastroenterologist and had lab work, endoscopy and colonoscopy. I was put on medications – too many to count. The drugs gave me more pain and made me lactose intolerant. There were no results.

I was referred to the Yeh Center of Natural Medicine because I was not getting results from my medical doctor. I came to see Dr. Yeh on January 21, 2001 and I received acupuncture, herbs and was put on a good diet. After the first treatment, I started feeling better. I began to eat healthier and was able to function better overall.

I am feeling a lot better and all my symptoms pertaining to the IBS have decreased. I am doing more at home and am now able to attend regular school. The staff is very nice and they answered all my questions, and the medical staff is experienced and knowledgeable. I am very pleased and I have enjoyed coming to the treatments. I am happy with the results and I am living proof that the natural treatments work. I would recommend it to anyone!

“At this time I feel wonderful — vital, strong, healthy, and full of energy.”

For a number of years I have endured multiple chronic physical conditions, many of which were caused or exacerbated by stress. These included an anxiety disorder, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue and thoracic outlet syndrome. Last summer my family and I moved from the east coast to San Diego. While it was a planned move, one to which we looked forward to, it clearly was a stressful one. Many of my chronic conditions worsened — particularly the thoracic outlet syndrome, anxiety and fatigue. Testing and meetings with numerous specialists resulted in a diagnosis of major surgery, which I chose not to pursue.

I noticed an ad for the Pearl Center of Natural Medicine, which had just open in La Jolla, and decided to consult its founder Dr. Timothy Yeh. I presented him with a list of my symptoms and the recommendations from my former doctors. He listened intently and then explained that natural medicine is used to treat the whole body, not just the part that exhibits the symptom. Also, I needed to cooperate and work in partnership with Dr. Yeh following his direction to affect positive results. I liked the idea of working together for my benefit! Through the use of acupuncture, herbs, food medicine, and life style changes, my body would most likely respond by healing itself, suggested Dr. Yeh. And that is what happened. It did not happen over night. In fact, Dr. Yeh told me I would begin to feel better within three months, but not completely well until approximately six months.

Knowing that Dr. Yeh had been trained in both Western and Eastern medicine with over 30 years experience, I felt secure in believing that if he said he could help me, then he would. However, I was willing to make all the changes in diet, do all that he suggested and commit to the full treatment was the use of establishing a base line, which indicated where deficiencies and excesses of energy were present throughout my body. At the conclusion of the first three months, this testing was repeated, so I could actually see where progress had taken place, and where areas of weakness still occurred. This served as encouragement and evidence that success was possible.

My treatment took place over the course of my first winter in San Diego. Although many around me had the flu and colds, I remained completely healthy. At this time I feel wonderful — vital, strong, healthy, and full of energy. I continue to eat well, exercise, and get the needed rest. I plan on having a seasonal check-up to make sure I remain this way.

I appreciate all the skill, caring, and good work Dr. Yeh and his staff have provided me. I’m so thankful I took the chance to explore and try the natural approach to my health problems, instead of resorting to surgery and medication. I am happy to recommend Dr. Yeh and his staff to others who are experiencing any health problems or want to increase their state of wellness.

Very truly yours,

“After the 1st treatment, the bowel movements improved 100%”

I have suffered from Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS for over 26 years. I have had asthma and problems with my lungs for over 3 years and menopause syndrome for over 3 1/2 years. I had pain, bloating, constipation, chills and extreme body heat from the IBS. I had wheezing, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing from the asthma. I had hot flashes and chills associated with the menopause syndrome. All these symptoms made me not feel like socializing.

I got drug medications and over the counter inhalers, but I had no results.

On August 27, 2001, I came to the Yeh Center of Natural Medicine here in Upland. I was not knowledgeable about natural medicine and was skeptical. My brother and sister referred me. After an exam, I received acupuncture treatments, prescription herbal medicine and dietary/food guidelines.

After the 1st treatment, the bowel movements improved 100%. The pain disappeared! And no more bloating! Since getting the treatments, my menopause symptoms have improved. My breathing also improved after the 1st treatment, and I have only used my inhaler 6 times – before I used it 6 times a day. I also noticed additional benefits from the treatments: I lost weight, the fatigue symptoms are better, my energy has improved, I am sleeping better now, and I am more sociable. I feel better.

The staff is excellent and I never had a problem with anyone. I am happy with the results, and I would refer a friend or family member to the Yeh Center. I am now a firm believer! I encourage others to talk to people who have experienced it, and I would use myself as a reference of how well natural medicine works!

“The treatment is gentle and I’ve felt improvement in a short period of time.”

Dr. Yeh has helped me with several chronic health problems I’ve had. I came first to Dr. Yeh because of severe pain in my neck and shoulder from deteriorating disc. Western medicine had not helped me and the pain was getting worse. After a few acupuncture treatments, the pain was greatly relieved.

I also had had a chronic problem with Irritable Bowel Syndrome which at times caused me to have severe stomach pains and diarrhea. This condition also has dramatically improved with the treatment of acupuncture, herbs and nutritional guidance. Taking the herbs, has also increased my energy level and I just feel much healthier.

The treatment is gentle and I’ve felt improvement in a short period of time. I am impressed by the quality of treatment Dr. Yeh gives his patients and am very pleased with the results.
