Dean J. Foster, M.D.
Dr. Dean Foster knew he would be a doctor from an early age. His Dad was in general practice when doctors made house calls and delivered babies. Dean witnessed first hand the value of wellness in life. He was educated at UCSD in molecular biology then attended USC for medical school. He did his residency at L.A. county Hospital to become a board certified orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Foster is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. He had a successful practice in San Diego involving 4 hospitals trauma departments plus teaching in the medical department ay UCSD. This hectic lifestyle brought him a point of seeking Jesus and travel to The Holy land. Dean did his first mission in 2000 and continues to do missions to the present. He has chosen to lay down the scalpel and partner with Jesus to bring a revival of Christian wellness, protecting missionaries and those who serve the sick from chronic debilitating diseases and cancer.
Jeanne (Braa) Foster rose from being a single mother and hairdresser to become the Artistic Director of John Paul Mitchell Systems in 1989. During her career she shared her talents on stages around the world. As a role model for hairdressers, Jeanne received the very first North American Hairstylist of the Year Trustees Award. Known for her humility and humanity, in 1999 Jeanne was recognized by Modern Salon Magazine as one of the top 75 educators of the century. She recommitted her life to Jesus and retired. She and Dean married in 2003.
In 2006, Dr. Foster learned he had cancer. Still reeling from the diagnosis, he and his wife Jeanne were plunged, out of control, into a whirlwind of specialists, tests, treatment options, and alternative medicine.
Dr. Foster and Jeanne credit not only his physical recovery, but also surviving the process itself, with their strong faith in God and the ability to hear His direction for them during this time.
From this experience, they developed a vision to share the principles of internal, external and eternal wellness in a Christ-centered program. This program is designed not only to build strength and balance in Christians for long-term health and wellness, but also as a tool for drawing those who are hurt and suffering into a safe environment to learn how to experience Christian wholeness throughout eternity.
Today Dean and Jeanne work side-by-side sharing “cellular fitness, physical health and Christian wellness as the foundation for eternal beauty.”
