Dr. Ian Yamane grew up in a small community in San Diego County. At home, his mother battled illness for over 20 years. He witnessed a high spirited woman who was held back by a sick body and was relegated to her bed. She had no vitality and was always sick. He watched his father pick up the slack in the household to care for his sick wife while working full time and raising a family. It was painful for Dr. Yamane to experience his parents return each time from a doctor's visit as he had high hopes that the large bag of pills would somehow cure her. At times there were some glimpses of hope that she was cured, yet gradually over time she would end up right back in bed. Unfortunately, after visiting with many of the top healthcare specialists she passed away at a premature age. From that moment on, Dr. Yamane had a burning desire to start his journey in finding a way to help people with chronic and difficult to treat conditions. His desire for all families to enjoy optimal health drives his research and development of patient care so that no individual within families will have to suffer the same life-long debilitating heath that held back his family from the joy they could have had.Read More

My name is Farrah and I grew up in a small town in northern California. I spent most of my childhood and teenage years struggling with chronic illness. It took years of trial-and-error learning about integrative and functional medicine before I was able to make lasting healthy lifestyle changes to fully heal myself. I achieved optimal health and vitality through learning how to cook and eat whole foods (without unrecognizable added ingredients), and exercising appropriately for my unique body type.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of California, Davis, and earned my Master of Science in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut.Read More

I started becoming intrigued with functional medicine after my sister was diagnosed with brain cancer. I saw what prescription medication did to her and how it affected her children, her husband and the rest of our family. We all started slowly changing our lifestyle. We’ve seen improvement and it’s the best feeling in the world.
My husband, children and I recently moved to Las Vegas from Hawaii. Going to the beach used to be something we did almost every weekend. Now that we don’t have the beach, we find ourselves at the parks a lot. I enjoy spending time, outdoors, with my family.
I have worked in retail customer service at a craft store for many years. I liked helping people with their design and creativity ideas. I felt I had made a difference in their lives even just a little.
I became part of the Valhalla Wellness Family in late January of 2022. It was my first time working in a medical office, and I didn’t know much about Functional Medicine. While working at Valhalla, I have learned more about Functional medicine. I found myself enjoying working with patients and hearing the great things that Dr. Yamane has done for them. I, myself have started my personal healing here at Valhalla.
I have two little ones at home who I spend all my off time with. I enjoy sewing, crafting, and making things for my little ones. When I have the time, I enjoy watching movies, reading books, gaming and a playing a little Dungeons & Dragons.
