Helping our patients Feel Better Function Better Live Longer

Integrated Health & Wellness


At Natural Healthcare Center, our goal is to help you feel better, function better, and live longer.

Whether you are experiencing pain due to an acute injury or are suffering from the effects of such chronic conditions as obesity, diabetes, or high blood pressure, we offer a range of services that safely and expertly restore and revitalize your health—often without the need for surgery or medications.

Founded in 2003 by Dr. James Proodian, a chiropractic physician and health educator, NHC advocates functional medicine—a practice that takes an integrative, personalized approach by addressing your physical, nutritional, and psychological needs. We take the time to uncover the root causes of your condition, not just manage your symptoms.

While most patients first come to NHC due to pain—headaches, neck pain & stiffness, for example—you will quickly find that we are here to support your whole wellness, helping you not only recover but also get ahead of illness.

As it is, healthcare today is focused too much on sick care. And 75 percent of all disease is related to chronic illnesses, such as cancer, type II diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and high blood pressure.

We believe the focus must shift to disease prevention and proactive lifestyle choices in diet, exercise, and stress management.

At NHC, we have assembled the top physicians and practitioners in their respective healthcare disciplines. We stand committed to offering you the best science-based recommendations and natural healing techniques to help you recover from acute injuries or reverse chronic illnesses.

Most important, we give you the tools and resources you need to lead a healthier, more productive life.

We invite you to visit our state-of-the-art, 7,600-square-foot facility in Long Branch, N.J., for a complimentary consultation. Simply call (732) 222-2219 or e-mail to schedule an appointment.
