Dr. James Proodian, DC, CCSP
Founder, Chiropractic Physician, Health Educator, Clinical Director
Dr. Proodian has been in practice since 1994, but from the time he was in college, he saw a void in healthcare. He was frustrated by a system that would typically wait for people to get sick and treat symptoms with medication. Dr. Proodian envisioned a place where he could focus on proactive disease prevention and address health issues at the source, emphasizing lifestyle change and education instead of medication. This vision became a reality in 2003 when Dr. Proodian founded Natural Healthcare Center.
