Lynda Carter, L.Ac.
Lynda is licensed with the California Acupuncture Board. She became
interested in natural and holistic healing at a young age by witnessing her
mother’s success in treating their beloved horses and pets with homeopathy.
Her mother also suffered from several peculiar ailments that were greatly
improved by a vegetarian diet and homeopathy. She also lost a good friend
who died at a young age from cystic fibrosis. Feeling helpless to make a
difference really moved her to pay close attention to lifestyle and the use
of herbs, food, and supplements to improve one’s health. Natural health
truly is Lynda’s calling and life’s passion.
She studied and read extensively on Ayurveda, Bach Flowers, Western herbs,
and nutrition while raising her children in South Africa. She practiced her
craft with family and friends. Her children grew up very healthy without
any Western medical treatments. Later, she was able to formalize and deepen
her studies when her family moved to the US in 2004. Lynda attended Pacific
College of Oriental Medicine (now Pacific College of Health and Sciences)
where she obtained a Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine.
She is also a certified Yoga teacher and likes to incorporate many of these
modalities and experiences into her Traditional East Asian practice of
acupuncture, herbs, cupping, and Gua Sha.
Lynda specializes in women’s health; specifically fertility, and pregnancy.
She has a special interest and great success in supporting patients with
ADHD, anxiety, and digestive health complaints. She cares deeply about my
patients and wants to help them to achieve their best health and happiness.
She likes to take time to educate and listen to them. She favors Japanese
Meridian Therapy. This system utilizes palpation, touch, and a gentler
needling technique; as well as a sophisticated, classical diagnostic method
to really get to the root of what ails one.
Lynda lives on a 25-acre farm in Escondido with her husband of 30 years,
Bhakti, her gorgeous, retired racehorse, four cows, and three dogs. She and
her husband grow a large organic vegetable and flower garden as well as
produce ahimsa (cruelty-free) dairy from their cows. She is the proud mom
of three grown children.
