About Dr. Susanne
My Mission and Background
Hi there, I’m Dr. Susanne Bennett! I’m an internationally recognized natural and integrative medicine expert specializing in the fields of allergies, clinical nutrition, methylgenetics and anti-aging medicine.
I’m the founder of the Wellness for Life Center in Santa Monica, California, and over almost three decades of clinical practice, I’ve successfully treated thousands of patients suffering from allergies and chronic illnesses like headaches and migraines, digestive issues, autoimmune disorders, join and muscle pain, brain fog and chronic fatigue due to EBV infections and mold toxicity.
My unique approach to helping my patients to heal is to first identify the root cause of their illness (a critical step that is so often overlooked in our medical system today) and then to develop a personalized path to healing in order to get my patients back to their natural state of balance, using a combination of diet and lifestyle improvements, energetic modalities, nutritional supplementation, and follow up visits to monitor and guide their progress. I treat patients in person at my office in Santa Monica and also work with patients globally by phone, Skype or Facetime.
I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from UCLA majoring in Kinesiology, followed by a Doctorate degree, with a Summa Cum Laude in Chiropractic Medicine. And for many years, I had a fulfilling career as a Chiropractic Sports Physician.
My interest in treating allergies naturally came after literally fighting for my son Cody’s life over twenty years ago. As an infant, he developed life threatening allergic symptoms to most of the foods I attempted to feed him, and from environmental toxicants such as mold and air pollutants. We seeked so many different doctors to help him heal, all to little to no avail. It wasn’t until I discovered Environmental Medicine and NAET (Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique) that Cody was finally able to heal – what a miracle! Shortly after, I became certified in NAET along with many other alternative health therapies which I continue to use in my practice today.
