A. Meschi, PhD**

BCIM (Board Certified Integrative Medicine)

Functional Medicine

Born and raised in Iran, Dr. Ali Meschi left his family and his homeland to come to the United States in 1977 to pursue an education in conventional medicine at Case Western Reserve University, Ohio. But his life took a challenging but auspicious turn when the political crisis made it impossible to transfer funds, and he had to abandon his plans to become a conventional medical doctor.

Dr. Meschi moved to California in 1978, where he met and married his wife, Min. Having given up his plans in medicine, he tried a variety of other vocations, none of which were very satisfying.

Dr. Meschi and Min moved to Mission Viejo in 1989, settled there and had a son, Alex, who became the couple’s greatest joy. Shortly after the birth of their son, Dr. Meschi was diagnosed with two cancers. He was told by his doctor that there were no other treatment options except chemotherapy, and no cure his doctor knew of. Unwilling to go through a toxic therapy that offered no hope of recovery, Dr. Meschi decided to design his own course of treatment, with his conventional medical doctor agreeing to monitor his progress. He began an intense study of holistic medicine, creating a rigorous protocol of herbs, nutrition, lifestyle and dietary and changes, and various alternative therapies to bring his body back into balance. A devoutly spiritual man, he collaborated with his creator regularly to find a way to heal naturally, and help the son who meant so much to him and Min grow to manhood.

Shortly after completing his studies and graduating in 1999, he opened his holistic medicine practice and immediately began implementing the science-based nutritional and detoxification protocols he’d learned and used to heal his own illness, along with alternative modalities that he’d studied on his research trips to Germany, Japan, England and Geneva (to attend the Geneva Convention on Natural Health Medicine). When his clients improved after using these non-invasive, drug-free protocols, they’d share their stories with their conventional medical doctors, and Dr. Meschi began building strong collaborative relationships with some of these doctors, which he maintains to this day. His goal is never to malign one therapy over another, but to stay focused on what is best for the client (he likes to call them “health seekers,” rather than “patients,” or even “clients”), and how to advance the use of non-invasive therapies that are the most effective and least stressful on the body. He authors articles on his methods and presents his findings in various alternative medicine forums to further these goals.

In 2007, he was invited to present some of his cases to the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Researchers and CAM Practitioners Collaboration, sponsored by the Office of Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Maryland.

In his free-time, Dr. Meschi enjoys gardening with his wife in the couple’s backyard organic garden, watching classical comedies and talent shows, spending quality time with his 23-year old son and sharing the good news about the benefits of holistic medicine. He’s tried golf but quickly gave it up from fear of hurting somebody. He also dabbled in cycling, but almost ended up in the ER. So, needless to say, less dangerous activities like working out on his TreadClimber and playing with his two dogs, Tux and Abby are his favorite forms of exercise. Dr. Meschi prefers not to look back on his personal challenges with illness, unless it is useful or productive in some way. He passionately believes that good health is attainable for anyone who authentically desires to participate in his or her own healing, and believes that we all have the power to heal ourselves. He looks at healing as an adventure in the mind/body/spirit connection, bringing untold, thrilling rewards to the true health seeker.
