About Dr. Partovi

Ryan D. Partovi, JD, NMD, MIFHI, earned his medical doctorate degree from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM) in Tempe, Arizona.  Dr. Partovi earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in history from the University of Texas at Austin and his Juris Doctor (JD) degree from the Southern Methodist University School of Law.  He also completed two years of basic sciences coursework at St. George’s University School of Medicine.

Dr. Partovi first saw the potential and power of preventive, evidence-based, integrated medicine while working as a researcher at the Emory University Center for Molecular Medicine in 1998.  Since that time, he has been working hard to bring such medicine to the public.  Dr. Partovi was the first advocate for Dr. D’Adamo’s development of Generative Medicine as a specialized treatment paradigm.  Dr. Partovi’s primary treatment approaches include Generative Medicine, Personalized Medicine and Nutrigenomics, Herbal Medicine, Hydrotherapy, Mind-Body Medicine, and Environmental Medicine.  While a student at SCNM, Dr. Partovi received specialized training in Environmental Medicine from worldwide expert and author Dr. Walter Crinnion and has utilized this powerful treatment approach with great success over the last several years.  

Dr. Partovi was first introduced to Dr. D’Adamo’s work in 1999.  Suffering from various health problems for which conventional medicine had no real answers, he had turned to an integrative medicine physician who recommended he try the Blood Type Diet (BTD).  Like many of his contemporaries, Dr. Partovi initially viewed the premise of Eat Right for Your Type to be questionable at best; but the more he read, researched, and learned about the blood group theory and the scientific basis behind it, the more convinced he became that Dr. D’Adamo was nothing short of a medical genius.

Dr. Partovi had an early passion for sharing and teaching Dr. D’Adamo’s work, and he spent many hours during law school researching health questions for members of the Yahoo ER4YT-O group and official BTD forums.  It comes as no surprise then that Dr. Partovi attended the first biannual Institute for Human Individuality (IfHI) Conference in 2003 to finally meet Dr. D’Adamo in person.  Since scoring in the top 10% of examinees to join the first class of Fellows in 2003, he has been involved with IfHI, becoming a Master in 2005 and participating in the 2007 and 2009 Conferences.  He has served as a Certified Educator of the Institute since 2003, educating the public pro bono about the impact of individualized nutrition on longevity, health, and wellness. 

After completing his graduate medical education at SCNM, Dr. Partovi left Arizona for the east coast to complete the first Residency program of its kind in Generative Medicine at the Center for Personalized Medicine and the University of Bridgeport Health Sciences Center. During his residency he worked side by side with the brilliant Dr. Peter D’Adamo and the passionate and experienced Dr. Ginger Nash. Dr. Partovi’s primary practise interests are women’s health, endocrinology, fertility, pre- and post-partum care, and menopause with an eye toward longevity—prolonging life by improving health. Since becoming the very first doctor board certified in Generative Medicine in 2011, he has lived and practiced in sunny San Diego.
