ARCADIA HEALTH CENTRE
Established in 1961, is a world renowned residential and outpatient Clinic in continuous operation for half a century and a pioneer in health reform. The Centre is a rational healthcare centre for fasting, recovery, prevention, education and lifestyle reform. It is peacefully located in the beautiful and salubrious Hills District within the environs of Sydney. It provides an excellent, quiet , peaceful, scenic, unpolluted, restful and protective environment for the effective and optimal application of health conditions and requirements. The Centre is involved in evidence based healthy living education.
The Centre is a unique and leading Clinic in the world for fasting supervision. It was founded in Sydney by Dr. Alec Burton, in 1961, and was later joined by Dr Nejla Burton and has been in continuous operation since 1961. It is recognized by the International Association of Hygienic Physicians, Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A. and has served as a teaching and training institution for a number of doctors such as M.D.’s, D.O.’s, D.C.’s, etc.
The recovery of health demands both skilful care and a protective, favourable environment. The care at the Centre is supervised by professionals specifically trained in lifestyle, fasting and rational health care. The practitioners are all licensed and are members of the International Association of Hygienic Physicians, made up of licensed primary care physicians.
The emphasis is health oriented rather than disease oriented; that is, the focus is on health care and the removal of the causes of disease, rather than the vigorous and active treatment of disease which often involves the use of substances and procedures in themselves harmful to health.
The doctors live on site at the Centre. This facilitates an ongoing collaborative relationship between the practitioner and the patient for the best health outcome.
Over the past 50 years thousands of people from the five continents, who have been sick and tired of being tired and sick, have experienced the care available at the Centre.
