About the Presenter

Dr. Cory Szybala is a licensed naturopathic doctor who believes in helping his clients discover optimal health using an integrative and individualized approach. Dr. Szybala is committed to providing quality naturopathic care to men and women of all ages. He enjoys integrative family practice and has special interests in men’s health, pediatrics, blood sugar dysregulation, and digestive health. It is his willingness to listen to the whole story and dedication to integrative health that drives his patient care.

While in school at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM), in Portland, Oregon, Dr. Szybala developed a passion for clinical nutrition. It was during this time that he discovered, and quickly became a member of, the acclaimed Food as Medicine Everyday series (previously known as the Ending Childhood Obesity Project). The series, which is still going, includes twelve workshops demonstrating simple techniques for selecting and cooking delicious, nutritious whole foods and how they influence individual health outcomes.

Born and raised in the Midwest, Dr. Szybala was mostly influenced by a conventional healthcare model. It wasn’t until after his graduation from Indiana University with a bachelor’s in biochemistry and minors in psychology and biology that he realized there were other types of healthcare models. In his practice Dr. Szybala combines this previous experience with conventional medicine with his background in biochemistry and his passion for integrative medicine to develop a more holistic, preventative and individualized approach to healthcare.
