Dr. Greg Eckel from Energy4Life Centers

An interview with Dr. Greg Eckel from Energy4Life Centers on September 27, 2023 by George Ackerman, Ph.D, J.D.


Please tell me a little about your background:


Dr. Greg Eckel’s journey into Naturopathic and Chinese Medicine began in the mid-90s when he noticed the overmedication of children while teaching preschool. In 2001, he co-founded Nature Cures Clinic in Portland, Oregon, and later founded Energy4Life Centers, a wellness and recharging center in Park City, Utah. His unique combination of Naturopathic and Chinese Medicine provides an array of tools to treat acute and chronic illness, emphasizing prevention and wellness principles.


Can you tell me more about your advocacy?


Dr. Eckel has been featured on major networks like ABC, NBC, and FOX, and has reached over 150,000 people with his online brain regeneration and bioenergetics summits. He’s also published a book, “Shake It Off: An Integrative Approach to Parkinson’s Solutions,” and served as the President of the Board of Naturopathic Medical Examiners.


What is your passion and how did you get involved in Parkinson’s awareness and hope for a cure?


Dr. Eckel’s personal experience with his wife’s Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease led him on a deep dive into regenerative medicine. Through this, he developed a brain regenerative program and a nasal spray that specifically targets neuroinflammation in the brain. He utilizes sound and laser technology, regenerative medicine, mind-body techniques, and other procedures to correct the body’s control systems and protect the body’s energy. He believes the future of medicine lies in frequency, and he’s leading the way in bringing bioenergetics mainstream.


What type of goals do individuals with Parkinson’s have when working with you?


Goals of improved quality of life. Meeting folks where they are and making plans, so they know their exact next step is crucial in getting traction. People with PD (PwP) get an advocacy team that is with them arm in arm on their health journey.


What would you like to see as a future goal for your advocacy?


I’d love to see research investments to support exploration of faster solutions for more PwP.


How does your advocacy also assist the caregivers?


Care for the caregiver is so very important and we offer discounted services to support team members.

How can others also become advocates for awareness?


Getting educated about options for PwP including reading my book, Shake it Off: An Integrative Approach to Parkinson’s Solutions.


If you had one statement or quote you could leave for the Parkinson’s community, what would it be?


There are more options than you know about. We are living in an amazing time and medicine is changing rapidly. Hang in there and keep going!


In your opinion, what is the key to effective advocacy? 


Purpose and drive. The Why. Why do you want to be an advocate? What gets you up in the morning, through the darkest hour? It’s gotta be a big reason.
