Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century patient. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and cause complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality of each individual.
Dr. Steven Geanopulos (widely known as Dr. G) is a speaker, writer, and leader in the world of functional medicine and functional neurology and is quickly becoming one of America’s leading experts in lifelong, optimized living. Through his personally crafted rejuvenation system, he has proven that diminished health and vitality can be improved by just about any proactive person, at any age, with nearly every illness. A world-renowned speaker, he is known for his upbeat, lively personality and his insightful, innovative lectures. He speaks in front of a wide range of audiences, including industry professionals and the general public.
Dr. G completed his postgraduate studies in the field of Functional Neurology and attained board certification through the Carrick Institute, a distinction shared by fewer than 700 doctors worldwide. A lifelong learner and self-care advocate, he has completed hundreds of hours of training in the field of functional medicine, and currently applies his methods to treating patients all around the globe.
Of great importance to Dr. G is providing his patients with the knowledge, understanding, and habits needed to maintain the gains they’ve made while working with him and benefit from them throughout their lives.
