Our program is designed by Pamela Nathan who 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 where she obtained her B.A. in Psychology from Witwatersrand University.  She earned a graduate degree in teaching and counseling.

While raising three children, all of whom suffered from serious allergies and severe life threatening asthma, she desperately branched out of main stream medical practices into realms of alternative medicine. This led to post-graduate study at Lindlahr College of Natural Therapeutics, South Africa, where she earned a degree in Homeopathic medicine.

Meanwhile, during this time, Pamela was introduced to the practices of transcendental meditation and yoga.  She continued to explore complementary health practices which finally culminated in the opening of a health center.

Pamela’s Emigration to California, USA

Subsequently, Pamela immigrated to California in 1979.  California Clinic of Preventive Medicine was a newly formed center. The physicians there recruited her to assist them. In addition to her busy work schedule, she continued her studies during this time. Acupuncture was emerging as an accepted holistic alternative. Therefore, she enrolled in their program and subsequently gained Board Certification in Oriental Medicine.  After that, Pamela co-founded Ecology Medical Clinic, together with  Dr Ivor Emanuel, MD, and in addition to administration, she developed her private practice.

Ten years later, Pamela founded her own center, Ecology Health Center, in 1992 and was able to further explore the various techniques and practices that enhanced health and well being.

During that time, in 1996 and 1997, she co-authored research studies on the effectiveness of her Stress Management Program, together with Steven Brody MD and Michael Lydic MD. It was presented at 2 annual reproductive medicine meetings.

Most importantly, the studies showed a dramatic 42% and 43% reduction in subjective stress level scores. After that, the same program was extended to be used for male patients as well. These patients suffered with a variety of conditions ranging from depression & anxiety to high blood pressure & weight gain.
