Pamela Nathan B.A. L.Ac DHMPamela Nathan designed the program. She spent 2 years conducting clinical research that has endorsed the benefits and positive results of her effective stress management program.

Pamela Nathan’s Early Education

She was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. She obtained her B.A. in Psychology from Witwatersrand University.  After that, she earned a graduate degree in teaching and counseling.

She desperately branched out of main stream medical practices into realms of alternative medicine while raising three children. They all suffered from serious allergies and severe life threatening asthma. Therefore, they were her teachers as well. This led to post-graduate study.  She earned a degree in Homeopathic medicine at Lindlahr College of Natural Therapeutics in South Africa. 

After that, Pamela was introduced to the practices of transcendental meditation and yoga.  She continued to explore complementary health practices. This finally culminated in the opening of a health center.

Pamela’s Emigration to California, USA

Pamela immigrated to California in 1979.  At that time, California Clinic of Preventive Medicine was a newly formed center. However there were very few practitioners who knew about alternative medicine. Therefore the physicians there recruited her to assist them. She continued her studies during this time, in spite of her busy work schedule. As it happens, acupuncture was emerging as an accepted holistic alternative at that time. She found the concepts of oriental philosophy intriguing and captivating.

Therefore, she instantly enrolled in the California Acupuncture College program and subsequently gained Board Certification in Oriental Medicine.  After that, Pamela co-founded Ecology Medical Clinic, together with  Dr Ivor Emanuel, MD. In addition to running the clinic, she developed her private practice in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.

Pamela founded her own center, Ecology Health Center, ten years later in 1992. Her insatiable curiosity about complementary treatments encouraged her to continue to explore a variety of techniques and practices that enhance health and well being. Research & Development

It was during that time, in 1996 and 1997, that she co-authored research studies on the effectiveness of her stress management program. Her co-researchers were Steven Brody MD and Michael Lydic MD. Their clinical research was sensational for that time. Body-mind medicine was in it’s very early stages. Their research was novel research. It was presented at 2 annual reproductive medicine meetings.

Most importantly, their studies showed a dramatic 42% and 43% reduction in subjective stress level scores. After that, male patients were given this same program with the same results. These patients suffered with a variety of conditions. Some had depression & anxiety. Others had high blood pressure & weight gain. In other words, they all responded in a similar way. Their high blood pressure went down.  Their weight went down and most importantly, their depression and anxiety was reduced.

Pamela’s unique approach to complementary health care has always combined both Western and Eastern philosophies. She uses both techniques to successfully promote long term benefits. Therefore, participants in her program certainly see remarkable improvements in their sense of well being, both through behavior modification and education.

In conclusion, Pamela is dedicated to bringing you the most up to date, innovative approach to stress management and life style changes. She excels in providing personal supervision to all her program participants.
