Dr. John Neustadt NDDr. John Neustadt has an international reputation as an integrative medical specialist. He became reknowned in this field through his clinical work, books, work with the FDA, healthcare entrepreneurial ventures, articles for professional journals and the popular press, continuing education lectures to healthcare professionals and radio appearances.

In 2005 Dr. Neustadt founded Montana Integrative Medicine (MIM) in Bozeman, MT. Dr. Neustadt specialized in hard-to-treat, chronic degenerative diseases through an integrative approach that emphasized identifying and treating the underlying causes of disease. Dr. Neustadt and his clinic soon gained a reputation as the place to go for patients who have been through the conventional medical system but were not getting better, were suffering from side effects of medications or were wanting to find natural strategies to discontinue their medications.

His extensive, successful cases of depression, chronic pain, irritable bowel syndrome, bipolar disorder, seizures, attention deficit disorder have been featured in books and at continuing medical education conferences.

In August 2008, Dr. Neustadt was voted Best Doctor among all physicians in theAbout Dr. John Neustadt area in the annual Best of Bozeman survey. This is the first time a naturopathic physician has ever won this category. The editors of The Tributary wrote of this accomplishment, "It is noteworthy that Dr. Neustadt did not win 'best naturopathic doctor;' he won best doctor. Perhaps for his expertise in nutritional biochemistry – his book, A Revolution in Health through Nutritional Biochemistry, written with Steve Pieczenik, MD, Ph.D., was released this spring. Perhaps, it is his intuitive and holistic approach to health care. Perhaps it is for the extra hours he puts in at no charge. But likely it's the combination of all of these characteristics that set him apart. This is a big day for naturopaths everywhere. Congratulations, Dr. Neustadt."

Dr. Neustadt's work extends beyond clinical medicine. With is partner, Steve Pieczenik, MD, PhD, he wrote three books:

  1. A Revolution in Health Through Nutritional Biochemistry
  2. A Revolution in Health Part 2: How to Take Charge of Your Health
  3. Foundations and Applications of Medical Biochemistry in Clinical Practice

The doctors combined their respective medical backgrounds to help tranform healthcare in the United States away from an approach that largely treats symptoms with drugs to one in which the underlying causes of diseases are identified and corrected. This lead to the publication of their Neustadt-Pieczenik Postulates, which has been used in continuing education lectures to doctors.

In the search for natural solutions to some of the most dangerous health conditions, Dr. Neustadt cofounded Nutritional Biochemistry, Inc. (NBI) and NBI Pharmaceuticals, Inc. NBI has created a unique line of dietary supplements with clinically proven nutrients and formulas. Its Osteo-K product is the only osteoporosis product in the country with ingredients shown to decrease fractures by 87% without any side effects of the medications. Its MitoForte product has ingredients shown to improve energy, memory and mood by 60% or more without any caffeiene or other stimulants.

The research behind Osteo-K and MitoForte were featured in several professonal articles. Dr. Neustadt's osteoporosis research has been featured in Integrative Medicine: A Clinician's Journal, Bottom Line Personal, Holistic Primary Care and Compendium of Continuing Education for Dentists. Drs. Neustadt and Pieczenik were the first ND-MD team to write a continuing eduation article for dentists on bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ). BRONJ is a dangerous side effect of the bisphosphonate osteoporosis medications (Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva, Zometa) that literally cause the jaw bones to start to disintegrate. Research now shows that up to 8% of people taking these medications are at risk for BRONJ from something as simple as a tooth extraction.

In September 2010, Dr. Neustadt was recognized by Elsevier as being one of the Top Ten Cited Authors in 2007 & 2008 for his article, "Mitochondrial dysfunction and molecular pathways of disease," which formed the basis of the MitoForte formulation. This article was coauthored with Steve Pieczenik, MD, PhD and was published in the journal, Molecular and Experimental Pathology. Elsevier is the world’s leading publisher of science and health information, providing valuable information to more than 30 million scientists, students and health and information professionals worldwide.  

One of Dr. Neustadt's articles, "Medication-Induced Mitochondrial Damage and Disease," was published in the journal Molecular Nutrition and Food Research. He was honored to have been contacted directly by the editor, a senior FDA researcher, and asked to share his expertise by writing this ground-breaking article.

Dr. Neustadt is on the editorial advisory board of the Journal of Prolotherapy and remedies magazine and an editor of the textbook, Laboratory Evaluations for Integrative and Functional Medicine. In September 2006 Dr. Neustadt was invited to speak at the 1st European Conference on Anti-Aging Medicine in Vienna, Austria. Dr. Neustadt earned his naturopathic medical degree from Bastyr University where he was awarded the Founder's Award for academic and clinical excellence.
