Dr. Eric Gerken

Chief Wellness Officer

He met Dr. Jeffrey Bland, PhD, in 1979 at a nutritional biochemistry conference where Dr. Bland was the keynote speaker on nutritional medicine. This was a new science then, and as a recent graduate in biochemistry, Eric changed his career focus from research to clinical practice. Always a sports enthusiast, he chose sports chiropractic and acupuncture medicine as his professional vocation. This matched up well with nutritional biochemistry, and as they say, the rest is history. Fast forward 40 years, and he is now involved in educational health and wellness.  Dr. Gerken is a Chiropractor and a Certified Practitioner with the Institute for Functional Medicine.
