Dr. Jonathan J. Widenbaum, PhD, CHNP, CNC, BCIM, FAANC
For 27 years Dr. Widenbaum has been serving the Tri-Valley community as a natural healthcare professional, focused on finding solutions for patients diagnosed with chronic health conditions that were not responding to traditional medical treatment. He uses a "whole-person approach" that looks to get to the underlying cause of these conditions. These include symptoms of low thyroid, diabetes, fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy, gastorintestional issues, brain chemistry imbalances of depression, anxiety, & ADHD to name a few, as well as slow metabolism resulting in the inability to lose weight.
Dr. Widenbaum found the immune system to be the common denominator among these chronic health conditions which is why the medical approach alone is often inadequate. Patients continued symptoms often get ignored, the lab reports get 'treated' and the person is left confused and frustrated.
As a Holistic Practitioner and Functional Medicine Nutritionist, Dr. Widenbaum is trained in functional endocrinology, functional immunology, functional blood chemistry interpretation, brain chemistry analysis as well as applied kinesiology. Like a health detective, he then uses a scientific approach that uncovers the hidden mechanisms and immune system triggers of chronic health conditions that lead to symptoms. He then works systematically to remove these triggers allowing your body to rejuvenate.
Dr. Widenbaum, PhD, is Board Certified in Integrative Medicine, has a Doctorate degree in Clinical Nutrition, and is a Certified Holistic Nutrition Practitioner. He was also distinguished as a Certified Nutritional Specialist from the prestigious American Association Nutritional Consultants of which he has been honored as a diplomat member.
Dr. Widenbaum attended Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan prior to graduating from Chiropractic College, Los Angeles, CA in 1988. While Dr. Widenbaum no longer practices chiropractic, his current passion is to offer natural solutions to chronic health conditions and immune system disorders using natural interventions and drug-free health rebuilding techniques. He has helped over 20,000 residents of the Tri-Valley community with health conditions improve their quality of life without the use of drugs or surgery.
His mission is to add value to your life!
Dr. Widenbaum and his wife Diane, have 3 children, Jared, Megan and Jaela.
