Jorgen Bernard Jensen March 25, 1908 – February 22, 2001
As Bernard Jensen’s daughter-in-law, I would like to provide you with some detailed information about his life, career, and contributions to the field of health and healing.
Jorgen Bernard Jensen, was born on March 25, 1908, in Stockton, California, and was the son of Eugene and Anna Jensen. In 1929, he graduated from the West Coast Chiropractic College in Oakland, California, and furthered his studies with Victor Rocine, a Norwegian Homeopath.
Bernard Jensen became widely recognized for his expertise in iridology, but his influence extended to various alternative care methods. These included nature cure, hydrotherapy (particularly colon hydrotherapy), fasting, reflexology, color therapy, polarity, glandular balancing, homeopathy, herbology, acupuncture, craniopathy, and personology.
Over the course of his career, Bernard Jensen owned three sanitariums, with the Hidden Valley Health Ranch in Escondido, California, being the last one. He claimed to have treated over 350,000 patients during his lifetime. While maintaining an office in Los Angeles, he also saw patients at the Hidden Valley Health Ranch. After the sale of the original ranch, he continued to see patients at his office above the original land site. Additionally, he conducted iridology workshops at the site closer to his home for several years.
Jensen’s contributions to the field were not limited to practice; he authored more than 50 books and booklets. Some of his work was also preserved in VHS and DVD formats, which are still available today.
Bernard Jensen’s legacy in the health and healing community remains significant, and his teachings continue to impact those interested in alternative care methods. If you have any further questions or require additional information, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Arthur Eugene Jensen, Sr. (Art) was the second-born son of Dr. Bernard Jensen. Art’s life was a testament to dedication, hard work, and a profound commitment to his family and his father’s legacy.
Born on March 16, 1940, in Los Angeles, Art was the second of six children and grew up alongside his siblings at his father’s Alta Dena Health Ranch and the Hidden Valley Health Ranch in Escondido, CA. He cherished the time spent riding horses with his brothers and friends on the ranch, shaping his early years.
Art’s journey extended beyond the ranches as he served his country in the Navy for four years, earning praise from commanding officers for his dedicated work. Following his military service, he married Ana Ramirez in New Orleans and excelled as a leading insurance salesman.

He substantially contributed to the family’s health legacy, managing the Hidden Valley Health Ranch for thirty years. In 2001, following the passing of Dr. Bernard Jensen, Art assumed the responsibility of leading Bernard Jensen International.

His wife Ellen Tart Jensen and Art’s commitment extended to building and growing the International Iridology Practitioners Association, where he and his wife, Ellen Tart-Jensen, traveled the world teaching iridology and nutrition. Together, they owned and managed Bernard Jensen International, coordinating the global shipping of natural health products and overseeing all operations.
Art’s love for his family was evident in his role as a loving husband to Ellen Tart-Jensen, a caring father to five children, and a devoted grandfather to eighteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
