In 1984, at the age of 76, and after several years of hard work, Dr. Bernard Jensen obtained his Doctor of Philosophy degree in clinical nutrition from the University of Humanistic Studies in Del Mar, California. The degree constituted academic recognition of a breadth and depth of nutritional knowledge seldom paralleled in our time.
Dr. Jensen has studied with such great nature-cure physicians as Dr. John Harvey Kellogg of Battle Creek, Michigan; Dr. Benedict Lust of Butler, New Jersey; Dr. Ralph Benner of the Bircher-Benner Sanitarium in Zurich, Switzerland; Dr. John Tilden of Denver, Colorado; Dr. George Weger of Redlands, California, and many others.
His greatest teacher was V.G. Rocine, A Norwegian homeopath, who studied with pioneer European food chemists and came to the United States bringing this valuable knowledge. Dr. Jensen was one of the first to recognize its value, and he studied with Rocine on and off for several years.
Dr. Jensen has been the honored recipient of many awards, including an award from Queen Juliana of the Netherlands in nutrition, the Dag Hammarskjold Award of the Pax Mundi Academy in Brussels, Belgium, and the Pioneer Doctor of the Year award in 1982 by the National Health Federation.
