Our Story


Dr. Juliet Tien grew up on a farm in the old countryside of Taiwan. As a child, she was overweight and suffered from a severe case of yeast and parasitic infections. The village medicine doctor volunteered to raise her and teach her ancient herbology, which ended up saving her life. Driven by a desire to be healthy and to shed her nickname of “little pig,” she studied what healthy people ate and began to cook for the family – only using healthy ingredients. Lucky for us, her family had very picky palates!


Her recipes and philosophy evolved over her lifetime. After decades of treating thousands of clients with her holistic philosophy, herbal programs and nutritional diets, she is ready to share her philosophy globally – through food!


A major turning point of this universal mission occurred in 2012, when her son was diagnosed with debilitating rheumatoid arthritis. Charles Tien was faced with the choice of trading in his active lifestyle with one that would see him dependent on immune system-suppressing drugs, steroids, and painkillers. Instead, Dr. J convinced him to try “the Dr. J way” 100% for 30 days. Charles has been in full remission and symptom free since August of 2012. This drove his passion to help his mother fulfill the mission of bringing her health philosophy to the world.


At Dr. J’s, every bowl, every plate and every drink is put together for a purpose and with one of the most important parts of your life in mind– your health.  Our focus is on organic, locally grown ingredients, combining principles of macrobiotic and Ayurvedic cooking with an Asian flair.
