Natural Awakenings San Diego

Meet the Veterinarian

Jun 30, 2011 08:15AM ● By Linda Michaels

Dr. Tamara Hebbler practices in Solana Beach at her exclusive consultation facility, Healing Hope. With a degree from the University of California School of Veterinary Medicine at Davis, Hebbler believes that nutrition and detoxification are vital to the health of animals.

“The goal of holistic medicine is to achieve a balance of mind, body and spirit together, so true healing can occur,” Hebbler explains. Using a non-invasive approach to healing, she offers a variety of modalities, including nutrition, nutraceuticals, glandulars, homeopathy, Western and Eastern herbs, flower essences, chiropractic and energy therapies. Hebbler’s deep understanding of the energetic connection inherent in the animal/human bond compels her to promote education and empowerment in her relationship with clients and their pets.

I have had the privilege of working closely with Dr. Hebbler on issues concerning behavior, and I can personally attest that she is one of a handful of veterinarians who has a true interest and understanding of the bidirectional effects of health and behavior. She works to heal the whole animal.

With published articles in the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation’s Health and Healing Wisdom Journal, Hebbler is active and highly regarded in the holistic veterinary community. She offers lectures throughout San Diego County.
