Welcome to
Natural Healing Hawaii

Dr. Diana Joy Ostroff, Licensed Naturopathic Physician, Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Licensed Acupuncturist & The Center for Natural Healing

Naturopathic doctor Dr. Diana Joy Ostroff has been practicing naturopathic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture in Honolulu, Hawaii, on the island of Oahu since 1987. She was motivated into her career of choice by a desire and drive to heal herself through naturopathic healing. Realizing when she was a teenager that life could be so much richer if she felt amazingly healthy in mind, body and spirit, Dr. Joy began her quest for knowledge, skill and mastery in 1978 when she started learning yoga, psychology, meditation, nutrition and physical fitness. Holding to a philosophy that we are able to heal our own bodies through elements found in nature, Dr. Joy decided to seek out the field of naturopathy. Twelve years of additional study in pre-med and medical sciences, as well as naturopathic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, Hawaiian healing arts and study abroad in Asia, plus 26 solid years of treating over 26,000 patients gives Dr. Joy the experience and credibility to make a deep and long-lasting impact and impression on how her patients bodies work, and how they can work with greater efficiency and vitality.

Naturopathic, Holistic
Women’s Health Specialist

Being a woman is the most wonderful gift of all, bringing with it subtle, yet profound changes-monthly, weekly and sometimes even daily. Shifts in our energy, our emotions and our hormones are all very real to us, but often an enigma to those around us, such as our husbands or mates, bosses and children.

Imagine how good it would feel to have a better handle on how to strengthen, balance and nurture your body, mind and spirit to create a more consistent, focused, self-loving energy-one that filters out all the noise, confusion and interference, allowing you to go through your days relaxed, happy and feeing a sense of quiet, balanced control. A top naturopathic physician can aid with women’s health issues through acupuncture, holistic health and natural healing. For those wondering how to reduce stress, it is worthwhile to contact a Hawaii acupuncture doctor for acupuncture treatment and other holistic therapies.

Natural Pregnancy

Many people wonder what is a doctor of naturopathic medicine, and what can naturopathic doctors do about physical maladies related to pregnancy. Over the 20 years of my professional practice, I have worked with innumerable women who were having difficulty either with conceiving a baby or sustaining a pregnancy for the duration required in order to have a healthy baby.

When assisting my patients, current mothers, mothers-to-be and aspiring new mothers-to-be, I go to great effort to determine what preliminary work will be necessary to ensure that conception will occur and pregnancy be maintained. I encourage, recommend and ensure sufficient and excellent nutrition, a serene disposition, a positive mental attitude and the appropriate exercise programs, as well as proper, highest quality supplements that meet each woman’s particular needs. Supplements are tested to determine the best selection for the woman. (Remember, all supplements are not created equally.)

What our clients say

  • I have had hypertension, type ii diabetes, and high cholesterol for about 5 years…

    I have had hypertension, type II Diabetes, and high cholesterol for about 5 years. I have been on prescription drugs. I have been wanting to get off prescription drugs for a long time but dont know how. I read about naturopathic medicine and I decided to try. I have been seeing Dr. Ostroff for about 3 months. Taking naturopathic medicine with acupuncture and watching my diet I stopped all prescription drugs cold turkey. My blood presure on 6/22/05 ws 130/88. I have los tabout 12 lbs. And I feel great.

  • Depression Testimonial

    Since my first (and only, besides today) visit I feel so much better. The first couple of days I felt no worse, but no better. Then on my third day I felt remarkably better. I no longer felt like crying all the time and I could relax. My appetite which was pretty non-existent was back and strong. At moments I did feel a little weak, but before my visit I felt 10 times worse. Acupuncture also seems to have helped. I feel myself going into a deep relaxation during the sessions. I look forward to feeling even better with time. It has just been a week so far.


  • Arthritis.. After two treatments my knee pain is minimal

    When I arrived in Honolulu on Thanksgiving Day I had been suffering with a headache for 8 months. I was diagnosed with severe arthritis of the spine and would undergo surgery on my return to Spokane. The pain became so intense I called my doctor for a prescription for acupuncture and massage. I found Dr. Ostroff through the phone book. I also had pain and numbness in my left leg. I had a knee replacement surgery a year ago and reinjured my knee about two months ago. I was taking 4 to 6 hydroco/APAP 5.500 mg tablets a day. After my first treatment from Dr. Ostroff my headache disappeared. After two treatments my knee pain is minimal. I have not even needed an aspirin for over a week.


  • Cancer treatment testimonial

    The question in my mind was, “Do I want to put a poison in my body like chemotherapy? Or do I want to try and heal myself naturally… and maybe cure myself or put myself in remission without poison?”

    In November 1994, I was diagnosed with low-grade lymphoma of the bone marrow. It was at Stage 4, but with low grade. This was a slow moving cancer. Dr. Kenneth Sumida was my hematologist at the time and he explained that at the time, treatment was not necessary. Later, when the cancer progressed, I was told that treatments may involve chemotherapy, radiation and bone marrow transplant. All of these treatments scared me, and I knew that I wanted to prevent myself from getting worse by any means I could naturally. I contacted Dr. Diana Joy Ostroff. She agreed with me about my feelings towards treatments, that these treatments would do damage to good cells not only cancer cells.


  • Anxiety testimonial

    It’s been about four months now since I started to come to Dr. Ostroff’s office. In just these few months I’ve seen a dramatic change in my health. When I first came to her I was anxious, underweight, suffered from dizziness, panic attacks, inability to concentrate, and many more problems. These problems caused everyday life to be troublesome. After the first visit I could feel a real difference because my panic attacks went away. As time went on I saw other symptoms go away. Now I feel like I use to before I got sick. Instead of life being troublesome, it’s very enjoyable through Dr. Ostroff’s treatments and education on how to take care of ourselves. It’s really changed my life for the better. And I couldn’t ask for anything better.


  • Muscle and bones… she has given me my life back.

    I came to see Dr. Ostroff about 4 months ago after being written off by a western doctor. I was very sad, feeling as if I would never be able to use my arm again even for simple things like writing or using our new computer. But as I sit here today WRITING with ease, I can only say that Dr. Ostroff has been my angel. She guided me through this incredible recovery process with loving care, patience, and incredible knowledge. I am very lucky to know her, and I appreciate all that she has done for me. She has given me my life back.

    Sincerely with love,


  • You made it possible for me to feel so much better today than i have felt in a long time

    Doctor Ostroff and Staff,

    I just wanted to thank all of you for the wonderful experience I have had there thus far. It is unfortunate that I will not be able to see Dr. Ostroff for a while but I feel 100% better since my initial visit! In just two short visits and the with the aid of supplements, I have had such an increase in overall health and vitality. It is truly amazing the types of changes I have noticed since walking into the office for the first time. I would also like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for being able to work with me financially. You made it possible for me to feel so much better today than I have felt in a long time. I am truly convinced that I will definitely be back for regular visits in the future (hopefully soon!) and that Dr. Ostroff will be a part of my life long journey to overall wellness. I’m sending my blessings to all of you for the amazing ways you help people like me. Take care and see you soon!

    With love and aloha,

    Ashley M. (Waipahu, HI)

  • Eliminated my symptoms after the first day of seeing her

    My name is Emily and I am an 18 year old student from Western Washington. I was recently diagnosed with Mononucleosis after going through a major time of hectic-ness and stress! I was sick for weeks with many interchanging symptoms.

    Dr. Joy dramatically helped me to regain my energy level and vitality, as well as eliminated my symptoms after the first day of seeing her. I was very pleasantly surprised! I plan to continue taking her advice and to stay in touch after returning to Washington state for college!

  • All I wanted and prayed for was relief from eczema

    All I wanted and prayed for was RELIEF from ECZEMA. Since I was a teenager, I have been using steroidal creams for hand eczema. At one time, a gentleman said to me that I should be happy not to have it anywhere else on my body, as if it were any consolation. My hands would feel raw and it hurt to do anything with them. Well, when eczema started to appear on my arms, back, stomach, and legs years later, I remembered the remark from that gentleman and wished it was just on my hands.
