Nutrition. Education. Transformation.


Welcome to Swanson Health Center

The idea for Swanson Health Center began with a classroom overflowing with sick children. Before she embarked on a career as a nutritionist, Cheri Swanson worked in early childhood education as she continued her medical and nutritional studies. This decision ultimately led her to her true calling and her practice. She found herself constantly fielding a barrage of questions from parents on how to keep their kids well. Often she would stay after school talking with parents on the importance of whole foods and supplements. In the late 1970s the health field was just gaining momentum, and many people were still in the dark about disease and illness prevention. Ultimately Cheri decided to leave teaching and devote herself full time to her passion: guiding people to take charge of their health, to get well – and stay well.

For over thirty years in Orange County, Southern California and nationwide, Cheri has been educating the public on how to regain health and heal illnesses when conventional medicine alone could not. In 2008 her son Alex joined the company and has helped further her vision of making good health accessible to everyone. SHC’s long-standing reputation for excellent personal care and consistent results has made Cheri one of the most well-known and respected nutritionists in Southern California. Our educational model is based on organic foods, supplements and herbs, and involves a farm-to-table approach where the source of the food and how it was grown holds just as much significance as the edible itself. We look forward to serving you and helping you to achieve your health – and healing – goals. Thank you for visiting!
