Dr. Peter M. Petropulos has been practicing complementary medicine for more than 25 years. In the 1970s, prior to beginning his formal studies, Dr. Petropulos worked as an emergency room Medical Corpsman in the United States Navy. It was during this time that he gained a keen interest in medicine and healthcare.
Following his discharge, Dr. Petropulos entered pre-med studies and worked in hospital intensive care units to fund his schooling. It didn't take long before he became disillusioned with conventional medical therapy as he witnessed firsthand the shortcomings of western medical approaches.
Dr. Petropulos therefore realized, to treat in a holistic manner, he would need to investigate alternative and complementary therapy. Thirty-five years ago, not much was available to an aspiring, alternative healthcare practitioner, so after attending Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles, California, he pursued as much as available post-graduate education on nutritional and complementary medicine.
Dr. Petropulos now has completed over 1,000 hours of ongoing post-graduate nutritional education, along with more than 25 years of clinical experience in alternative healthcare. With over 900 post-graduate hours in Applied Kinesiology and a post-graduate education with licensure in acupuncture, Dr. Petropulos is well versed in a wide array of adjunctive therapies and diagnostic protocols.
