Dr. James Proodian Named Health Educator of the City of Long Branch

Long Branch, N.J.—Natural Healthcare Center (NHC) is pleased to announce that Dr. James Proodian, a chiropractic physician and founder of NHC, has been selected as the 2014 health educator for the city of Long Branch’s new CityWell program.

CityWell is a free resource for all city of Long Branch employees and their dependents to help them lead healthier lives. It includes diverse tools and programs to meet a wide range of personal health needs.

As health educator, Dr. Proodian provides monthly health education seminars on a number of topics, including stress management, nutrition, and fitness. The goal is to educate and motivate Long Branch employees so they make healthier lifestyle choices that lead to tangible improvements that can be measured through BMI and blood testing.

For more than two decades, Dr. Proodian has been offering these health education seminars to local businesses and organizations through his company Wellness at Work.

In addition, Natural Healthcare Center is the chosen facility for all municipal employees to receive free health evaluations and consultations to uncover the root causes of any illnesses and provide a plan for preventative care.

Since 2003, Natural Healthcare Center has offered integrated health and wellness services, including chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, fitness programs, and clinical nutrition. Advocating functional medicine, NHC utilizes science-based methods and natural healing techniques.

“A wellness lifestyle is the only way to truly improve one’s life while decreasing the ever-growing cost of health care in the United States,” said Dr. Proodian, who has been studying the effects of chronic disease in America for more than 25 years.

Similar to wellness programs used by businesses and corporations, the CityWell program will recognize and reward its employees for participating in healthier lifestyle activities.

For Dr. Proodian, his work with Long Branch is part of a larger movement to help businesses and organizations not only improve their employees’ health but also lower healthcare costs, including health insurance premiums. Dr. Proodian is committed to helping people take personal responsibility for their health with the goal of tempering the chronic illness epidemic in America.

“No one is more excited than I am that Long Branch has chosen to step up and take the role of helping its employees,” said Dr. Proodian. “I am donating my time because it’s a community, and we are a community center. Let’s make change happen one person at a time.”
