Bernard Jensen (March 25, 1908 - February 22, 2001) was a chiropractor, entrepreneur, and the author of numerous books and articles on health and healing.
Jorgen Bernard Jensen was born in Stockton, California to Eugene and Anna Jensen. In 1929, Jensen graduated from the West Coast Chiropractic College in Oakland, California. Jensen went on to study with Victor Rocine, a Norwegian Homeopath.
Although best known for his work in iridology, Jensen was a noted proponent of a variety of alternative care methods including nature cure, hydrotherapy (such as colon hydrotherapy), fasting, reflexology, color therapy, polarity, glandular balancing, homeopathy, herbology, acupuncture, craniopathy and personology.
He owned three sanitariums, the last being the Hidden Valley Health Ranch in Escondido, California. He said he saw more than 350,000 patients in this life. For many years Jensen maintained an office in Los Angeles where he would see patients. He also saw many patients at his office at the Hidden Valley Health Ranch. The original ranch was more than Template:Convert/LoffAoffDbSoffNa. When this was sold, he began seeing patients at his office above the original land site. For numbers of years he taught iridology workshops here at the site closer to his home.
Jensen authored more than 50 books and booklets, and some of his work appeared in VHS and DVD format that are still available.
