About Dr. Peter Amato Ph.D, DNM

Dr. Peter Amato is revolutionizing today’s Holistic Healthcare Model and is also a world renouned leader in Addiction Recovery

A revolution is quietly taking hold as patients and recovering addicts become more and more dissatisfied with the mainstream healthcare system that fails them time and again. This dissatisfaction fuels a search for answers and new truths.  And the truth is, we have answers! 

As a pioneer in Integrative Medicine, Dr. Amato has been healing patients for over 25 years from acute and chronic conditions.  His enlightened and forward-thinking approach to wellness addresses not only symptoms of disease (including addiction recovery), but gets at the root cause to allow for enduring wellness.  He has forged a unique approach to the the 11th Step of the "12 Step Alcoholics Anonymous Program." 

Dr. Amato’s approach requires an appreciation for the connection between mind, body, and spirit - and how all three play a key role in your overall health and/or enduring sobriety/recovery. This is the exact point where, and why, traditional healthcare approaches repeatedly fall short.

Dr. Amato is a Board-Certified Doctor of Natural Medicine and Founder of Inner Harmony Wellness Centers.  For 25+ years, he has been testing clients to pinpoint imbalances and illness, then creating Personalized Wellness PlansHe guarantees results!

But it does not stop there.  He stays with you throughout the healing process and also will continue to coach and educate you to ensure lasting wellness.  He empowers you to take control of your health through workshops, seminars, and retreats.  

You not only achieve a healthy body and mind, but you will set your life on a new course towards intention, meaning, and purpose.  Discover the richness, lasting joy, and peace that is missing in your day to day life.

To create his wellness plans, Dr. Amato has crafted a powerful and effective, 5 step approach:

  • Restore alkalinity
  • Target and eliminate chronic infections
  • Detoxify the body
  • Balance hormones
  • Engage a solid anti-aging & revitalizing program for mind, body and spirit.

Some common and often persistent conditions treated include:

  • Digestive issues
  • Autoimmune
  • Sleep irregularities
  • Bone and joint pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Diabetes
  • Lyme disease and more!

Dr. Amato’s organic, non-synthetic approach prompts your body’s response to provide answers.  Meanwhile, mainstream medicine plods along in an invasive and indifferent manner, pushing pills and sending you on your way.  Dr. Amato takes the time to test and fully understand YOU AND YOUR CONDITION.  He then crafts a Personalized Wellness Planand supports the healing process every step of the way.  

Dr. Amato treats his patients with compassion, insight, advanced modalities, and targeted neutraceuticals (green medicine).  While he acts as a healer, coach, educator and guide, traditional medicine is treating natural organisms (ourselves) with synthetic chemicals. This then begs the question- does that make sense and moreover- is it working?!

Experience the benefits of an enlightened approach to health and wellness.  Be a part of the whole new world that is opening up in the field of Integrative Medicine for disease management and prevention. 

Our goal is not just longevity, but joyful and healthful longevity!
