Dr. Diana Joy Ostroff has been practicing Naturopathic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine on Oahu since 1989. She was motivated into her career of choice by a desire and drive to heal herself. 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 guided, Dr. Joy decided to seek out the field of naturopathy. Twelve year 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.
In 1989 Dr. Joy founded the Center for Natural Healing Hawaii to focus on: • Optimal Health for the MIND, BODY, AND SOUL • Balanced Wellness For Mothers And Children - Holistic Pediatric Care • Restorative Health For Mothers • Emotional Well-Being - Freedom From Depression And Anxiety • Nutritional Health, Digestive Health - Freedom From Eating Disorders, Weight Gain, Cravings, And Bloating • Hormonal Balance - Freedom From PMS, Happiness After Menopause, Male Virility.

This woman, who I’ll call Lyla had originally come to see me with her husband about eight years ago, wishing to conceive a child. As of late, she has not only been bringing in herself, her husband and their son for regular “tune up’s and health check up’s; but also her 72 year old mother Joan, who had been in the car with Lyla when they were rear ended.
The months that the woman is privileged with the divine task of carrying her new baby to be, are perhaps the most magical months she will experience in her lifetime. .The continual nuances from conception, through the stages, until delivery and the ultimate new life in the arms of mother, is an experience never forgotten, never repeated in the same way and never is there a more creative and incredible process.
