About Charles Gant, MD, PhD
Dr. Gant has practiced Integrative, Complementary/Alternative and Functional Medicine for over three decades. He also teaches mindfulness-based meditation and incorporates Gestalt, REBT (Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy), Transpersonal and other mindfulness-based psychotherapies into his medical practice.
His doctorate thesis research in the 1980s predicted that mindfulness-based therapies should evoke consistent neurophysiological changes in brain function (especially frontal lobes), which should be measurable with brain neuroimagery, and this has essentially been proven in the last decade in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) research.
Dr. Gant received his B.S. degree in chemistry from Hampden-Sydney College and his medical degree from the University of Virginia Medical School. Dr. Gant pioneered many of the nutritional and detoxification treatments for the treatment of substance use and other mental disorders while serving as the medical director of Tully Hill Hospital, as a medical consultant at Syracuse Behavioral Healthcare and as a psychiatric consultant at numerous substance abuse and mental health clinics throughout Central New York.
These protocols are currently being duplicated around the country by many healthcare practitioners (see allianceforaddictionsolutions.org – Dr. Gant is a founding member) and they promise to improve treatment outcomes and bring authentic healing to those suffering from all types of mental disorders. Dr. Gant currently practices at International Precision Medicine Associates and he is Director of Education and Training at The Academy of Functional Medicine and Genomics at The Academy of Functional Medicine & Genomics.
Dr. Gant provides the latest, cutting-edge, diagnostic, functional laboratory testing for his patients to define the root causes of symptoms which can then be targeted to optimize brain health and general wellness. This science-based approach can reverse the biochemical roots of aggression, addiction and mental disorders, as well as many medical disorders, which brings authentic healing and recovery.
