Our Story

From helping a sick neighbor as a young boy, to embracing an integrative approach to health and wellness as a pre-med student, Dr. Proodian’s vision of Natural Healthcare Center was decades in the making.

If you ask Dr. Proodian’s mother, the Natural Healthcare Center concept first began to take root when 5-year-old James brought a bag of oranges to his sick friend, Katie. But a more defined vision of Natural Healthcare Center started to form when Dr. Proodian was a pre-med student.

He began seeing connections between what he learned in nutrition, exercise science, biology and chemistry classes. He realized that health and wellness could only be achieved by assessing a person as a whole, understanding how their physical, nutritional and psychological components work together, and bringing all three into balance. This evolved into the Triad of Health, which Dr. Proodian still uses today to illustrate a wellness lifestyle.

While sitting in a nutrition class, Dr. Proodian drew a picture of a large, multi-floor building with a lot of windows. He imagined a place where the community could go for a wide range of services instead of bouncing around from specialist to specialist. When Dr. Dennis Nitto offered to sell Dr. Proodian his chiropractic practice and facility in 2003, that notebook doodle turned into Natural Healthcare Center, and Dr. Proodian’s vision of a health and wellness facility became a reality.

Today, Natural Healthcare Center represents the new, integrative model of healthcare. We work to prevent and reverse chronic illness, treat the root cause of health issues, create and implement individualized treatment plans, and educate you to make better health decisions.

This is the future of healthcare. At Natural Healthcare Center, the future is here.
