Dr. Rhett Bergeron, M.D.
Upon beginning Louisiana State University medical school, Dr. Bergeron only had the beginnings of a sense of the importance of nutrition, lifestyle, and taking responsibility for one’s health. During the initial two years of medical school, he began to understand that medicine did not seem to always search for the cause of difficult health conditions and often used the term “idiopathic”. Idiopathic is an adjective used primarily in medicine meaning arising spontaneously or from an obscure or unknown cause.
The pharmaceutical drug treatments did not, in any way, bring healing (except in the case of some infections and throughthe judicious use of antibiotics), but left patients drug dependent for long periods of time, if not the rest of their lives, and had side effects and potential negative interactions that were harmful.
In his third year of medical school he first encountered the principle that the body is designed to stay well or return to wellness if essential nutrients are provided, if supporting therapies are offered, and if toxicities are removed. This was the beginning of an insight and approach that would change the rest of his life and set him on a course that would allow him to truly work within his calling.
Early on, Dr. Bergeron joined one of the premier organizations for complementary health care in America, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine. He quickly became passionate about environmental toxicity exposure, and the internal metabolic and biological environment of the body. After medical school, he completed a combined internship in Pediatrics and Internal Medicine and then a Family Medicine residency in the Charity Hospital System of Louisiana. During his residency training, he started attending medical education meetings with other groups of integrated or complimentary-alternative (CAM) physicians and trained with various physicians who were already practicing integrated medicine. These groups of physicians include the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (AAAAM or A4M).
After residency, he joined a specialty research laboratory, studying the immune system in chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia and cancer patients. He has been practicing complementary and alternative medicine for over two decades, and in that time, has learned about various treatment approaches, from nutritional and therapeutic IV’s, to ozone therapies. Some other treatment options Dr. Rhett Bergeron has studied are acupuncture, the judicious use of antibiotics and medications, homeopathy, herbal medicine, detoxification, chelation, sauna, hyperbaric oxygen, immunotherapy, bioidentical hormone therapy, medical weight loss and more.
