He shares his experience with psilocybin, and the perspective shifts that occurred in his life after using it. He also goes deep on mental health in our current health care system, and how it could benefit from the integration of psychedelic medicine.
― Dr. Christian Gonzalez
Dr. Christian Gonzalez, aka Dr. G, completed his Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2014. During his time there, he took interest in many fields of medicine, but it wasn’t until his mother passed of cancer that he decided to shift his focus to oncology.
The evolution of Dr. G was in cancer. Upon graduation, he completed his residency at the Cancer Treatment Center of America in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he found a passion in helping people optimize their health in preventing chronic disease. He soon realized that cancer was not simply nutritional or exercise-based, it was much more than that.
The relationships we have with our home, the environment, and the people in our lives all play a role in the development of chronic disease. As he studied this concept more, Dr. G became passionate about environmental medicine as well as the mind, body, spirit connection.
Everything is connected, from the foods we eat to the way we think and interact with the world and the people in our lives. These seemingly small factors all play a large part when it comes to our health and longevity. Because of this, Dr. G has shifted from working with patients to focusing his energy on mass education. He has become a trusted voice in the auditing of healthy brands so that the consumer is empowered to make the best choice for themselves and their families.
He is also the host of a weekly podcast called Heal Thy Self, which focuses on giving people the tools they need to truly heal from the inside out and highlights some of the top medical professionals in the industry.
Dr. G has been featured in countless media outlets including MSN, the LA Times, Shape, and more.. He currently lives in Los Angeles, California where he continues his mission of empowering people with the knowledge and the courage to take their health into their own hands.
