University of Bridgeport Opens Center of Excellence in Generative Medicine: Combining Technology and Natural Healing

Peter J. D'Adamo

The University of Bridgeport (UB) and Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo are proud to announce the opening of the Center of Excellence in Generative Medicine (COEGM). The COEGM uniquely combines patient care, clinical research, and hands-on teaching experience for the students of UB’s Health Sciences programs with the goal of better understanding the unique and complex self-healing behaviors that are the basis of naturopathic philosophy and therapy.

Using cutting-edge techniques, such as systems analysis, molecular biology and bioinformatics, Dr. D’Adamo and his team of clinicians and researchers offer the finest in naturopathic patient care.“ Taking an individualized approach to the patient is key to unlocking many of the latent healing powers of the body. It allows the physician to treat the patient, not the disease, “explains D’Adamo.

  Generative medicine employs the tools of modern medical research and bioinformatics (a type of information technology) to better understand the complex behaviors seen in both health and disease.  “These behaviors go beyond simple cause and effect relationships and provide for a better understanding of the relationships between the individual parts; whether they are genes, cell organelles, organ systems, etc. Naturopathic systems analysis can provide better approaches to safer and more individualized treatments of sickness and the enhancement of well-being,” says D’Adamo.

At the heart of the treatment protocol are the personalized nutritional programs that are tailored to each patient. After collecting patient data, including; patient history, biometric evaluation, blood grouping, and other non-invasive genetic tests, the information is input into a computer program developed by D’Adamo which analyzes nutrient data for over 11,000 individual foods and creates a dietary program that will allow patients to naturally recover from illness and meet their health goals. Additionally, the COEGM offers patients a wide range of naturopathic treatments and therapies, including; botanical medicine, acupuncture, constitutional hydrotherapy, infrared sauna therapy, and colonic irrigation.  

Dr. Peter D’Adamo is a naturopathic physician well known for his best-selling books including Eat Right for Your Type. He is the founder and director of the COEGM and a Distinguished Professor of Clinical Sciences at the University of Bridgeport. The Center of Excellence in Generative Medicine is the only accredited naturopathic school currently offering the Generative Medicine curriculum. Located at 15 Broad Street, Bridgeport.
