About Dr. Bernard Jensen
One of the greatest healers the world has ever known.
Dr. Jensen spent over 60 years as a pioneer in the holistic health field, helping to pave the way for the alternative health revolution that we are now experiencing.
Dr. Jensen began his career at the West Coast Chiropractic College where Bernard became the youngest Doctor in the state of California. He then began an intensive study of Iridology. He traveled extensively in search of health knowledge, a search that led him to over 65 countries to observe the lifestyles of the people and their various ways of eating. Each place provided a different health secret.
Following the path of the great nature cure practitioners, Dr. Jensen operated his own health sanitariums in Altadena and Escondido California for over 40 years.
People in search of health and rejuvenation came from all over the world to his Hidden Valley Health Ranch in Escondido, to learn the principles he believed in and taught.
Over the years, Dr. Jensen received several awards, and degrees from all over the globe. Some highlights were, in 1953 he was the recipient of the Ignantz Von Peczely International Iridology Gold medal award in San Remo, Italy. In 1982 he received the National health Federation’s Pioneer Doctor of the Year award. He was awarded the Pax Mundi Award for World Peace in 1984.
Throughout his career, Dr. Jensen wrote and published over 40 books. In 1952, he published, The Science and practice of Iridology, Volume 1, which quickly became a classic in the field and established him as one of the world’s top authorities on the subject. His second volume has received international acclaim. Some of his other wonderful books include Chemistry of Man, Foods that Heal, and Tissue cleansing through Bowel Management.
After working with over 350,000 patients, Dr. Jensen firmly believed that iridology coupled with nutrition are the greatest single therapy to be applied in the holistic healing arts and that “We must treat the patient, not just the disease.”
