I am Dr. Brenda J. Pratt, HD., Ph.D 

A Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner,  

and Holistic HygioPhysician Certified Doctor.

I am a Nutrition and Health Education Consultant, Health and Wellness Advocate, and Mentor.


                  Education and  Credentials

I have additional training in holistic natural health

and healing nutrition, mindfulness exercise,

counseling, case management and social services.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in health science, community health education, from Long

Beach State University, a Master of Science, a  Doctorate of Philosophy in Holistic Health and

Nutrition, and Holistic HygioPhysician degree

from University of Natural Health.

                           Health Journey

I am passionate about health, nutrition and  

spiritual well-being.  My  focus is getting to the

root cause of chronic health conditions, and 

removing symptoms.

 At the age of 15,  I was diagnosed with hypertension, and was placed on a low-sodium diet.  I didn't understand the dynamics of health 

and nutrition, and the importance of managing

stress. I was later told that hypertension was the 

silent killer, and that medication was the only

treatment. Today, I know that there are options.

I have learned that health is more than absence

of disease, and that the body can heal itself if provided  the right conditions; fresh air, food, sunshine, pure water, exercise, rest, sleep, relaxation, and mental poise.

Holistic natural health is my choice of

care, getting to the root cause and removing symptoms is what inspires me.

My health journey prepared me to offer

you, "the whole person" the support to change your habits, to improve your health, and build awareness towards a healthy lifestyle.


 I am so excited about this opportunity to serve you, to meet your goals and expectations,  

to get to the root cause, and remove symptoms 

in two simple steps:  

1. Stop enervating habits. 

2. Remove cause.

Here's Health to You Naturally!
