With the amount of fad diets currently on the market, it is difficult to determine the best diet and nutrition plan for a healthy lifestyle. That is precisely why our practice specializes in the nutrition principles of Eastern and Western medicine to contribute to the overall health and wellness of the body. Since every body is different, so is the approach required for each patient to promote healing in the body and strengthen immunity and well-being. Common ways these are achieved at the Natural Healthcare Center are listed below:

  • Herbology and Herbal Medicines: Eastern and Western
  • Natural Hormone Replacement: Women and Men
  • Enzyme Therapies
  • Homeopathy
  • Vitamin/Nutritional Supplements
  • Individualized Eating Plans
  • Nutritional Chelation for Heavy Metal Toxicity

Herbology and Herbal Medicines: Eastern and Western

The Natural Healthcare Center in Thousand Oaks specializes in herbal medicine to provide a compilation of two cultures to contribute to the overall wellness of the individual. This is the opportunity for each client to experience traditional Eastern medicinal therapies paired with the understanding of Western medicine in the form of effective and long-lasting herbal remedies. Instead of taking many of the more harmful chemical medications on the market, each client can receive an assessment of their own health concern or medical condition to be treated by proven herbal remedies.

Natural Hormone Replacement: Women and Men

It is a confirmed fact that hormone levels in the body start to decline with age, which can lead to the obvious appearance of age in the body. One of the first signs of this process is menopause in women, whereas testosterone will also start to decline in men. This decline in hormones is gradual, although other hormones in the blood can start to increase with age. This increase in hormones can cause a number of health issues, such as the development of cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. For this reason, natural hormone replacement is often recommended to balance unstable hormone levels within the body and treat signs of premature age as they develop. This expert treatment can be administered by our specialists in hormone replacement, once the proper lab tests have been done.

Enzyme Therapies

An essential step in contributing to your overall well-being is to alleviate a number of digestive issues. For this reason, pancreatic (animal) enzymes and food (plant) enzymes are used to complement and aid in digestion for the greater absorption of all essential nutrients into the body. Our enzyme therapy includes enzyme supplements coupled with a healthy diet plan that includes whole foods. This therapeutic practice can also help treat a number of medical conditions and deficiencies through aiding in digestion to remove toxins, boost the immune system, cleanse the blood, and provide muscles with the necessary proteins that they need to thrive. Enzyme therapy is recommended for a number of medical purposes, including to treat pancreatic issues, cystic fibrosis, tumors, and cancer.


Homeopathy offers a medical therapy through natural remedies that differ from the practices of herbal medicine. Our homeopathic professionals use traditional methods to treat a number of health issues through recommended remedies that will stimulate the body to heal itself. Within homeopathic remedies, animal, mineral, and plant substances are used to treat a number of health concerns. All homeopathic remedies are diluted so that they are safe for ingestion in small dosages. Homeopathy can safely treat chronic illnesses through correcting imbalances within each individual.

Vitamin/Nutritional Supplements

Many people wonder if vitamin and nutritional supplements are actually necessary if they are eating a well-balanced diet. It is important to take into consideration that many of the foods on the market are processed, which has caused childhood and adult obesity to dramatically increase over the past 30 years. For this reason, many people experience digestive issues based on a lack of proper vitamins and nutrients within their diet. Most health professionals will recommend taking a proper antioxidant and multivitamin supplement to correct this issue since it is often difficult to get all of the nutrients that the body requires each day. Even if an individual is eating three square meals per day, it is still difficult to achieve the necessary amount of vitamins and nutrients to offset any deficiencies and correct a number of health issues.

Individualized Eating Plans

Here at the Natural Healthcare Center, we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to diets. Our nutritionist will evaluate your current diet and health status through a 7-day food journal, a food frequency questionnaire, a 24-hour dietary recall, and a body composition analysis. Based on this information she will create an individualized eating plan specifically for you. She also takes into account food allergies, food likes and dislikes, and your daily routine, to set you up for success!

Nutritional Chelation for Heavy Metal Toxicity

Heavy metal toxicity is a serious issue for many men, women, and children, which can cause symptoms of high blood pressure, mood swings, allergic reactions, depression, aggression, insomnia, speech disorders, and autoimmune diseases. Furthermore, many children have a relation between symptoms of autism and the toxicity of heavy metals, requiring the need for nutritional chelation therapy. This therapeutic treatment will work to prevent the arteries from hardening, improve circulation, reduce toxicity in the body, remove heavy metals, reduce leg cramps, improve kidney and liver health, and reduce memory loss symptoms. Proper digestion is essential to the results of safe chelation, which is why we provide the advanced treatment of nutritional chelation therapy to safely remove toxic heavy metals from the body.
