Introduced to natural medicine at a young age by her mother, Dr. Julissa Hernandez became imbued with the passion to help others. Natural medicine would be the tool she would use to carry out what she feels is a deeply embedded life mission: To Serve.
As a child, Dr. Julissa learned from her family if there wasn’t enough money for prescription medicine, alternative methods such as simple teas made from herbs and roots helped the body heal. That cursory knowledge ignited a fiery curiosity to look up an array of herbs and roots in the encyclopedia to learn their healing properties. She read voraciously and while still in high school, attended natural health courses alongside her mother. This excitement eventually led her to begin her university education at New York University, CNHP certification as a Certified Natural Health Professional from The National Association of Certified Natural Health Professionals, Inc., and a degree as ND – Naturopathic Doctor and designation of Doctor of Naturopathy from Trinity School of Natural Health. Dr. Julissa is a BCND, Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor certified by ANMCB, American Naturopathic Medical Certification Board, and a member of ANMA, American Naturopathic Medical Association.

This is a chance for people to take health into their own hands with an opportunity to prevent disease, create body balance, and healing. This is a chance for people to educate themselves to understand the difference between conventional tragic medicine and alternative healing medicine. Choosing one or the other, or using both complementarily, is possible when one educates oneself to know what will best serve them. Educating oneself and utilizing that knowledge is the key to divine health.”

1. Holistic Iridologists see the eyes as windows into the body’s state of health. Known as an alternative medicine technique, iridology examines patterns, colors, and other characteristics of the iris. Iridology is highly accurate, mainly because the predisposition of people’s energetic values and vitality in certain areas of the body correlate with the iris nerve wreathes. The results from the iridology exam are matched to an iris chart, which will distinguish between healthy organs, and those that are overactive, inflamed, or distressed. Iridology findings demonstrate a patient’s susceptibility towards certain illnesses, reflects past medical problems, and predicts later health problems.
1. Biorhythms predict various aspects of a person’s life through simple mathematical cycles. A person’s life is influenced by rhythmic biological cycles which affect one’s ability in various domains, such as mental, physical, and emotional activity. These cycles begin at birth and oscillate in a steady fashion throughout life, and by monitoring them a person’s level of ability in each of these domains can be predicted daily. In your session with Dr. Julissa, she will plot your chart so you can predict high and low days that began on the date of your birth.
a. The Physical Cycle
The physical cycle lasts for 23 days and will affect your physical condition. During the high cycle, you will feel more vigorous and have more energy. On the minus side of your cycle, you will be in a recuperative state and may tire more easily.
b. The Emotional Cycle
The emotional cycle lasts for 28 days and governs the nervous system. During the high cycle, one is inclined towards optimism and cheerfulness. Creativity, love, and cooperation are favorably influenced. During the low end of the cycle, you are more inclined to be irritable and negative.
c. The Intellectual Cycle
The intellectual cycle spans 33 days. During the high cycle, your mental responses are more alert, and you are able to absorb new ideas quickly. Throughout the low cycles, your capacity to think may be reduced and you should put off making important decisions.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Chinese Healing & Explanations
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is known to treat emotional and physical health concerns at the same time. TCM was developed in China and is based on ancient traditions which date back over 5,000 years. TCM’s view of the body places little emphasis on anatomical structures, but is mainly concerned with the identification of functional entities (which regulates digestion, breathing, aging, etc.). While health is perceived as harmonious interaction of these entities and the outside world, disease is interpreted as a disharmony in interaction. A TCM diagnosis includes tracing symptoms to patterns of an underlying disharmony by inspecting basic physical attributes such as hair, skin, eyes, etc. and the eating and sleeping habits of the patient.
