Bio: Dr. Julissa Hernandez, ND, CNHP (Dr. Julissa)
Dr. Julissa Hernandez has a mission: To harness her patients’ own powerful innate healing ability through application of her deep knowledge of Natural Medicine.
For over 15 years Dr. Julissa (as she is known) has built her practice and helped thousands of people through her dedication and wide-ranging wisdom and understanding. She sees her patients in their entirety as individuals – human beings – not as a set of symptoms; and her goal is that they feel happy, healthy and balanced.
Dr. Julissa grew up around natural medicine (her mother is also a Naturopath) so as a child she early became imbued with the passion to help to heal. She is a Certified Natural Health Professional (CNHP) from The National Association of Certified Natural Health Professionals and received her degree in Naturopathy from Trinity College of Natural Health, which awarded her the designation of Doctor of Naturopathy.
Her practice of over 15 years is comprised of naturopathy, holistic medicine, sclerology, herbology and iridology. She is a holistic iridologist, a Charter Member of The International College of Iridology, and Founder of The Natural Health Center, Inc. in New York City.
The Natural Health Center, Inc. is located in midtown Manhattan. There Dr. Julissa develops an individualized treatment for each patient according to his or her physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual symptoms. She emphasizes patient education, patient empowerment, and patient participation in the healing process.
“I am very grateful that so many have given me the opportunity to bring knowledge and help with their healing through herbal and natural medicine," says Dr. Julissa. "I seek to show others they have an alternative choice when it comes to their health – that the body knows how to heal itself and that healing can occur through correct nutritious food and herbal formulas. No longer do people need to be convinced to be well, they can 'decide to be well'™ by becoming willing to achieve optimum health and balance naturally.”
