The Akasha Way

Ours is the first dietary supplement line to be developed by an interdisciplinary team of board-certified medical doctors and licensed, recognized practitioners in alternative modalities such as Chinese medicine, naturopathy, anthroposophic medicine, nutritional therapy, and more.

A few of our guiding principles:

  • A multidisciplinary approach to healing and wellness, based on scientific evidence

  • Addressing the whole person: a balance of mind, body, spirit and advanced medicine

  • Empowerment of the patient through education and collaboration

  • Sustainability for our planet and all its inhabitants

Akasha Naturals products

The Akasha Center philosophy, from our evidence-based discipline to our Integrative Approach to wellness, is sealed into every Akasha Naturals product.

The Akasha Center

The Akasha Center in Santa Monica, California

Founded in 2002 by Dr. Edison de Mello, The Akasha Center and Akasha Naturals have been providing state-of-the-art, science-based Integrative Medicine care for almost 2 decades.

Described by one of our patients as... “an oasis of compassion, insight, calm, and tailor-made healing where you feel better just walking in the door and even better on the way out”, the Akasha Center has helped thousands of patients get their lives back after having had it stolen by both acute or chronic diseases. Akasha Naturals has been a major component of our success in successfully treating patients. While one of our patients describes it as her go-to supplement line, another one also captured the essence of our products and mission by stating... “With both the Akasha Center and Akasha Naturals, I’m happy I will never have to experience anything but strong and unwavering dedication to my care.”

From Our Akasha Naturals Home directly to Yours. Buy online and get Akasha Naturals supplements with all its well-found benefits delivered right to your front door. Or stop by if you're in town to experience our healing Sanctuary. We would love to meet you!
