Dr. Lindsey: Philosophy
CEO & Chairman Dr. Lindsey Duncan's journey into the natural health field stemmed from serious health problems he experienced as a child. He struggled with his own health issues for the greater part of his childhood, battling illness after illness and chronic immune conditions. Conventional medicine failed to help him, but an introduction to nutrition and alternative health care completely changed the quality of his life and health forever.
As a Renowned Naturopathic Doctor
Born in Texas in 1962, Dr. Lindsey moved to California in 1982 to study with the legendary and distinguished detoxification expert Dr. Bernard Jensen, PhD. Dr. Lindsey studied and worked with Dr. Jensen for several years, spending much of his time assisting Dr. Jensen at his famous healing retreat in Escondido, CA. After being certified by Dr. Jensen in many healing modalities and techniques, Dr. Lindsey completed his alternative health education with dual degrees in Nutrition and Naturopathy.
In 1985, Dr. Lindsey opened the Home Nutrition Clinic in Santa Monica, CA. Home Nutrition is world-renowned in the field of nutrition and natural health. His clients have included radiation victims from Chernobyl, as well as many of the world's leading music, film and television celebrities, and political figures.

Dr. Lindsey has been sought far and wide, with clients coming to his offices from all over the world. At his busiest, new clients were put on a twelve- to twenty-four-month waiting list. Overwhelmed, he began teaching his methods and techniques to other health professionals and opened additional Home Nutrition Clinics in Los Angeles, and Boulder, CO, in order to accommodate his escalating client base.
As an Award-Winning Formulator
In the 1980's, Dr. Lindsey, a master herbalist and formulator, began developing herbal and nutritional formulations specifically tailored to the needs of his clients. The formulas were a huge success, and Lindsey established 4Health, Inc. a separate company in charge of marketing his products to health food stores and health care professionals. The company experienced massive growth with Dr. Lindsey at the helm. His unique and powerful formulations won multiple gold medals in multiple categories at the prestigious Vity Awards, a national vitamin competition that sets the standards for nutritional supplement rankings. "In fact, Dr. Lindsey's most famous cleansing formulation revolutionized an entire market, setting the standard for cleansing products in the supplement industry, and has remained the number one best seller for over a decade".
