He started Del Mar Integrative Medicine because he has always desired to teach people how to live healthy and prosperous lives. Most recently he has developed an eating program that is based on the health concepts that he has studied over many years. As Dr. Kremer puts it, “In all the years I’ve worked in the emergency department, I have seen that the major cause of disease is based on the lifestyle the people choose”. He has committed the entire Del Mar Integrative Medicine practice to help people change their present lifestyle to a better lifestyle and eventually the best!
Dr. Payam Zand, ND

Through the use of comprehensive laboratory blood testing, in-depth patient history, symptom assessment, and physical examination, a unique, customized treatment plan will be given to each individual, as each patient is treated as just that, an individual. Dr. Zand believes in identifying the root cause of patient’s illnesses, not just the palliation of symptoms.

Jamie Lee Tokubo DAOM (candidate) LAc.
It is the vision of Jamie Lee Tokubo at Tokubo Integrative Medicine to bring forth the very best diagnostic tools and treatment modalities from both Eastern and Western Medicine to the healing process of her patients. In consideration of their concerns, she works with her patients to design a protocol that best treats the why or the root of what is causing the disharmony in their health, whether physiological, physical, emotional, mental, and or spiritual. Jamie states, “When we treat the root of the problem or disharmony within the total body, we are successful in resolving the multitude of symptoms that cause it imbalance, and thus, create a balanced system within harmony.”
By nature Jamie is a minimalist in her treatment approach, in that she desires to create a platform for each and every patient that is sustainable, both pocket-book friendly as well as truly targeted to her patient’s essential needs. Not only does she practice acupuncture and Chinese medicine, she also relies on her background in physical therapy and functional medicine to provide treatment. As needed, she will order and incorporate laboratory tests, read and interpret imaging scans, and work side by side with western medical doctors to enhance patient wellness. She also creates a personalized home self-care system that may consist of Eastern and Western herbal medicine, supplements, aromatherapy, and possibly holistic dietary recommendations, depending upon the concern at hand.
