He graduated from UCLA School of Medicine in 1970, did postgraduate training in family medicine, and became Board Certified in Family Practice. After a few years of family practice he realized the limitations of conventional medical practice with its excessive reliance of drug therapy. He then returned to UCLA School of Public Health, earning a Masters in Public Health in the epidemiology of chronic disease.
For the past 45 years, Dr. Peters has done extensive training and research in nutritional biochemistry and holistic health care. The first step for a patient is to evaluate and restore the natural wisdom or design of the body using nutritionally based therapies. He also carefully blends stress reduction and other lifestyle factors into treatment programs. His unique approach to the mindbody connection is so effective that any patient can transform disease into a turning point in their lives leading to greater levels of health both physically and psychologically. He summarized his approach to the consciousness of illness in a book which will be published in the summer of 2003 (Edgework, Exploring the Psychology of Disease). He has had successful medical practices in Santa Monica, California and Ashland, Oregon. Under his guidance, patients have learned that any disease can be successfully treated and chronic illnesses like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme’s disease, hepatitis C and cancer can be reversed.
He has written extensively for the media, appeared on television and offered a variety of health promotion seminars to the public. He believes that the unique complexities of modern life require comprehensive therapies designed to promote health, not just reduce symptoms. Many of the same services are also needed for people to prevent the development of disease.
