Dr. Bita Yadidi is California Board Certified Licensed Acupuncturist, a Doctor of Oriental Medicine specializing in Preventative Medicine, a certified Chi Gong, Tai Chi & Meditation instructor and a certified Lifestyle Coach. She is a motivational speaker sharing her knowledge & wisdom about conscious living and is a faculty member at Yo San University. She is the founder of Wellness To Be. An East-West Integrative Wellness Center in the heart of Beverly Hills, specializing in preventative and restorative health, with an emphasis of physical, emotional, mental & spiritual health.

Dr. Bita Yadidi is passionate about health and wellness and discovered the path of alternative medicine when her daughters at age 2 & 5 were both challenged with a health crisis. After trying conventional medicine, she soon realized the approach the drs were taking were not addressing the root cause. Her daughters skin rash returned once she stopped the ointments & her other daughters cough, colds and asthma were getting worse. Nothing was really helping. That is when she discovered Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture and with the help of Eastern Medicine, Acupuncture and Nutritional guidance, her daughters skin completely cleared up within a few months & her other daughter was no longer suffering from asthma, coughs and colds. 12 years later they are both healthy & thriving with no skin outbreaks nor asthma/cough challenges.

That is when Dr. Bita Yadidi (Dr. B) decided to commit to this path to be able to share her experience and knowledge with the world. She received her Masters degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2013 from Yo San University and continued her education, receiving her Doctorate in Oriental Medicine specializing in Healthy Aging and Longevity in 2016. Dr. Bita Yadidi truly believes and has witnessed it & experienced it first hand, that with understanding the person as a whole- body, mind and spirit and approaching health through the lens of wholeness, one can truly overcome all health challenges. She is passionate about prevention of disease and does not believe in a magic pill. It is through understanding the body, the psyche, the emotions and the spirit one can truly begin to assist bringing their body & spirit back to balance and slowly returning to great health and/or prevention of dis-ease. True health and wellness is a lifestyle not a temporarily approach.

Sorry to hear about your chronic back pain. For acupuncture to be most effective and see results, usually for acute conditions we recommend 2-3 times per week for a few weeks and then we taper to 1x/week. For chronic conditions it is a bit more complicated, but 1x/month is definitely not enough. Each individual and situation is different and will take a longer time to see results. At least once a week is recommended for a few months and once you begin to experience relief, then we can move it down. So for chronic conditions, at the beginning one may need to go in 1-2x/week for the first few months and once they begin to see results, treatments can be tapered down.
Hope this helps!
