Dr. Diana Joy Ostroff has been practicing Naturopathic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine on Oahu since 1987. 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. She is the author of the "Wisdom of Well-Being Book series" - "Your Health is in Your Hands", "The Joy of Eating - for Kids and their Moms", and "Get the Skinny on Getting Skinny".
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 - all very real to us; but often an enigma to those around us - our husbands or mates, bosses, and children. Only a woman herself knows how it feels to have radars far reaching - enabling her to think, feel, reflect, act, work and be aware of so much that is going on in her immediate world as well as keeping track of all the needs of those she loves and cares for; perceiving the moods of co-workers and clients and still getting SO MUCH DONE- every day!
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.
Osteoporosis is a degenerative disease causing the weakening of bones so that they become brittle, porous and thin. It affects 25 million Americans, of which 80 percent are women.
Bones are more likely to break when stressed or on impact, and as a result, osteoporosis is responsible for 1.5 million painful bone fractures per year.
I had been treating children with Autism-like characteristics for years before I had the opportunity of studying it in greater depth. It was always clear to me, although these children received similar diagnoses from their M.D.s, that these children were unique in so many ways.
As many of us aging adults and parents begin to notice our children growing up, and becoming more independent and self reliant, we suddenly have more time to reflect on how we are feeling; how our bodies are changing and how our energy is becoming more relaxed to put it kindly, non-existent on some of the tougher days.
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.
For millions of Americans, it is a daily struggle just to get out of bed in the morning, let alone summon enough energy and drive to fulfill their daily duties and responsibilities. At present, there is essentially no effective treatment offered by conventional medicine for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
Dr. Joy was recently interviewed on the Hawaii News Now television morning program "Sunrise" during the 7AM hour.
