About TrueNorth Health Center

TrueNorth Health Center is a multi-doctor, multi-discipline health care facility offering an alternative approach to the restoration and maintenance of optimum health. We believe that health results from healthful living, and endeavor to teach our patients how to eat and live healthfully.

We specialize in medically supervised fasting, and are conducting clinical research to investigate the role of a fasting and an exclusively whole plant food diet that is free of added sugar, oil and salt, in the management of a variety of conditions including: diabetes, high blood pressure, autoimmune disorders and lymphoma.

We have been in Sonoma County for over 33 years, and operate an outpatient clinic staffed by our doctors of medicine, naturopathy, chiropractic and psychology. Our in-patient operation is housed in a 40,000+ -square-foot, 58-bed facility, where we offer a residential health education and fasting supervision program.
