With a cult following across the city, The Chiron Clinic is a multi-service integrative medical clinic based in Jumeirah, Dubai and now expanding into Sustainable City.
The Chiron Clinic utilizes a range of sustainable modalities and health practices that focus on health rather than illness, bringing balance to each of its patients. Through high-quality individualized care, The Chiron Clinic treats the root causes of illness, to help patients achieve and maintain long-term health and well being.
The Chiron Clinic philosophy is based on sustainable internal family medicine, which is a comprehensive practice that addresses the underlying cause of an illness, rather than treating or suppressing symptoms.
At The Chiron Clinic, care is informed by a holistic approach with general practitioners that look beyond illness, at the whole human being and the effects on the environment. Founder of The Chiron Clinic, Dr. Lanalle Dunn, explains that ‘Chiron’ is an ancient term used in Greek mythology for brining both the art of medicine and teaching together.
“Healing is achieved in several ways, and begins by supporting the patient’s participation in making lifestyle changes to promote healthy physical, mental and emotional well-being. We combine scientiﬁc and traditional forms of treatment and use only the most researched conventional, natural and alternative medicines. We are focused on functional and preventative medicines as well as integrating complementary medicines that promote healing of the body, mind and soul.”
Utilising the least invasive modalities ﬁrst, Dr. Lanalle says she seeks to access the body’s innate healing abilities. She describes these modalities as part of a holistic approach to health care, where physical and mental health are key to prevention, treatment and ongoing optimal health.
Originally from Western Canada, Dr. Lanalle completed her undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at The University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. After years of research and travel, she developed a strong interest in, and great respect for herbal and traditional forms of medicine, and went on to study at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto.
She graduated in 2003 as a Naturopathic Doctor and moved to Hawaii where she began practicing family medicine. Dr. Lanalle later settled in Dubai, where she has been practicing for over 12 years.
