Applied Kinesiology (AK)

Applied Kinesiology uses manual muscle testing as well as x-ray analysis (if needed), blood tests (if necessary), urine analysis (if necessary), orthopedic evaluation, clinical nutrition and neurological examination to diagnosis the cause(s) to the patient’s problem, dysfunction, disease and/or emotional disturbance.

AK evaluates dysfunctional problems that are creating injury or illness. The AK examination is like no other. It evaluates the patient’s entire body for optimal performance and true wellness. AK takes a deep look at functional problems involving neurology, biochemistry, endocrinology, human physiology as well as the skeletal muscular system.

Health is not just being pain-free, but rather true health and wellness is feeling optimal on a structural and physical level as well as a mental/emotional level.

· Are you living in fear, uncertainty and/or in pain?
· Are you always sick or have the fear of becoming sick?
· Do you have a doctor who is concerned for your entire well-being and takes your whole body into consideration…not just specific areas?
 · Are you an athlete that wants the best care possible, to recover from injury faster, or maximize your performance legally and safely?
· Are you a patient who wants answers and a game plan for a solid solution?
 · Tired of just being a number?
· Tired of sitting in the waiting room for hours just to see the doctor for 10 minutes?
 · Tired of just receiving mediocre healthcare that involves taking a pill or receiving invasive illogical surgery to take of symptoms?
· Tired of weird or dangerous side-effects?
***If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then you found the appropriate doctor and clinic.
Traditional medicine involves only evaluating pathological diseases or syndromes. Medical practitioners then try to treat the problem with invasive, dangerous drugs or surgery. Sometimes drugs and surgery are appropriate and necessary. However, many times Dr. Sahara feels that allopathic medicine (drug therapy) is not the correct procedure, first option, nor therapy to take altogether.

The drug manufacturer Eli Lilly states, “A drug without a side effect is not a drug at all.” Ask yourself, “Does taking artificial drug therapy or allopathic medicine and being at risk of side effects and addiction make any sense?” Wouldn’t you want something more natural, safer, quicker, effective, and more permanent?

Our Clinic

At the Sahara Clinic it is just you and the doctor one on one. The clinic is small, intimate, private and creates a peaceful environment necessary for true healing. It is not cold, septic and hospital-like. You are never just a number. You will never be greeted by a front office worker who has an “I don’t care” personality.

Here, there are no nurses or assistants. You will be treated with respect, happiness, kindness, understanding, patience and with a loving spirit. Although the clinic treats celebrities, musicians, entertainers and professional athletes, you do not have to be famous to become Dr. Sahara’s patient. You just need to come in with an open mind and sincere desire to get well quickly, safely and naturally.

The Clinic is one-of-a-kind! The Sahara Clinic prides itself on being cutting edge, innovative and unique. Many strange, wonderful and miraculous events happen at the clinic. Dr. Sahara has various detoxification therapies/programs, energetic medicine such as meridian therapy (acupuncture), homeopathy, cold laser, ionic bio-cleanse foot baths, specific glandular and clinical nutrition, cranial-sacral therapy and specific chiropractic.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

The clinic now has hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). HBOT can be used to help treat severe neurological problems such as cerebral palsy, autism, intense migraines, strokes, some types of cancer involving irradiation, infection, slow tissue healing problems, skin afflictions, athletic injury/fatigue recovery and produce legal optimal athletic performance!

Lance Armstrong, Terrell Owens, Gilbert Arenas, Willie Shields, Daylon Mc Cutheon and Steve Mc Nair are some of the professional athletes that have been known to use HBOT for accelerated injury recovery and maximal athletic performance. Why wait six weeks to heal when you can possibly recover in three or less? At the Sahara Clinic, HBOT is available with the safest equipment on the market. This therapy is usually very expensive in many major cities and countries, but is made available at the best, most affordable price in the Los Angeles Area. Oxidative therapies such as HBOT are safe, non-invasive, and extremely effective.


According to Dr. Diamond, a psychiatric medical doctor who is an applied kinesiologist and one of Dr. Sahara’s mentors, states the word, “Holism” is a very new word. “It has only been in recorded existence since 1926, being coined by a remarkable man Jan Christian Smuts.” In the Oxford English Dictionary “Holism” is defined:

“A term coined by Gen. J.C. Smuts (1870-1950) to designate the tendency in nature to produce wholes (i.e. bodies or organisms) from the ordered grouping of unit structures… The whole-making holistic tendency, or Holism, operating in and through particular wholes, is seen at all stages of existence.”

Dr. Diamond added that one of the seminal writers in Smuts’s life, who helped him with his concept of holism, was Walt Whitman, who said, “every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.” (Whitman’s influence has been enormous extending to Ghandi, and including two of his physicians, both concern with holism: William Osler and Richard Bucke)

Diamond also points out that the Random House Dictionary defines holism as “the theory that whole entities, as fundamental components of reality, and have an existence other than as the mere sum of their parts.”

The Encyclopedia Britannica describes it as:
“The philosophy theory based on the presuppositions of emergent evolution, that entirely new things – “wholes” – are produced by a creative force within the universe; they are consequently more then mere arrangements of particles that already existed.”

Mirandola states:
“To divide a thing is the same as destroying it, nor can we take away from any thing its natural unity without at the same time robbing it of its integrity of being. For a whole is not its parts, but that unity which springs out of the sum of its parts, as Aristotle demonstrates in the eighth book of his Metaphysics.”

In the book, “Holism And Beyond” by Dr. Diamond states:

“This is what I try to feel about a sufferer. This is what I mean by seeing him holistically.  This is not just doing acupuncture on him or any other particular technique as a part of the rubric nowadays called holistic medicine. It is seeing every aspect of him as a whole. He is a whole, and all his functions within him are little wholes summating to this whole which is him within wholeness of his existence within the wholeness of Existence. And in order to be able to help him, you have to help him to see himself within the wholeness of his existence in the wholeness of Existence.”

Diamond adds:
“If you want to call this philosophy, then the ultimate easing of the suffering of mankind is to help them in their hearts to know this philosophy of holism. Once they know their wholeness in the wholeness of Existence, they are at last at peace.  They have gratefully accepted themselves in their existence.”
Thus, if you are interested and have an open mind, open heart and a sincere desire to get the necessary help. Give us a call at (626) 796-6830 or email ([email protected] ).
