Dr. Dennis Godby, ND
About Dr. Dennis ..., 21 Jan 2012 [cached]
About Dr. Dennis Godby was started in May, 2007 by Dr. Dennis Godby, M.A., N.M.D., a California-licensed, diabetes-focused naturopathic medical doctor, on a mission to reverse the world-wide epidemic of type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome (Syndrome X), and insulin resistance, and to significantly improve the outcomes of people with type 1 diabetes. Dr. Godby's passion is helping individuals to live to their fullest potential, by optimizing their health, so that they have the energy and vitality to live their dreams.
Dr Godby continues to ask his favorite question, why? Why has the rate of diabetes increased by a whopping 41% in just six years? The answer, of course, is not a change in genetics in just 6 years, or a super virulent infection, but the continual deterioration in the lifestyle for many of the world's people. But that is the good news, believes Dr. Godby, because if lifestyle is the primary cause of the dramatic increase, it is also the solution.
The roots of Dr. Godby's passion for reversing the diabetes epidemic, began while designing a diabetes natural medicine treatment plan for his mother, and witnessing her struggle to understand how to implement her doctor's treatment plan of "diet and exercise," and "take these pills. Dr. Godby's research into a natural diabetes diet and natural medicine for diabetes led to his interest in becoming a naturopathic medical doctor. During this time period, he began to remember the struggle of: his aunt who had diabetes while he was a child, which eventually led to her premature death; his cousin who lost most of his leg to amputation from diabetes; and witnessing the frustrations and agony of many other family members and friends with diabetes.
Dr. Godby has seen, felt, and heard the struggle of people with diabetes. As a naturopathic student in Portland, he worked at a low-income clinic with mostly Hispanic patients for three years, where at least half of the patients were diagnosed with diabetes, or treated for diabetes, pre-diabetes, insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome. His fluency in Spanish and love for the Hispanic culture, immersed him even more into the diabetes world. The results of natural medicine that he witnessed were so amazing, he wrote his doctoral thesis on, Preventing Type 2 Diabetes, Naturopathically, On a Budget.
Being a social change activist, teacher for two decades, and preventative medicine-focused throughout his entire life, he is now on a life-long mission to treat, prevent, and reverse diabetes. Dr. Godby is: a board-certified, California-licensed, naturopathic medical doctor, the founder and director of Diabetes Natural Path Center, a credentialed complementary practitioner with the Sutter Center for Integrative Health, a former Diabetes Wellness Coach for Sutter Health, all in Sacramento; a member of the Board of Directors for California Naturopathic Doctors Association, nutrition teacher and health columnist for a local newspaper.
Dr. Godby's passion for prevention began as a child; as an exercise physiology college student and passionate about promoting exercise, and eating nutritiously, he embarked on a SOLO run, in 1978, from Corvallis, Oregon, to Calgary, Canada, without a support crew, in 1978, at a time when events of this kind were almost unheard of - running an average 39 miles per day, for 37 days, over the Northern Cascades and Canadian Rockies, a total of 1,420 miles.
Six years later, in 1984, to promote peace in Central America, Dr Godby ran across America, from San Francisco to Washington, D.C., a 3,006 mile campaign, in 112 days. Speaking in town hall meetings, and to the press, daily, the motivation for this run was less about exercise, and more about promoting compassion, social justice, and peacemaking.
Dr. Godby received a B.S. from Oregon State University, in exercise physiology and nutrition, and a Master's of Arts in Theological Studies, from the Maryknoll School of Theology. For the next seven years, he taught social justice, spirituality and peacemaking in the religious studies department of two parochial high schools.
After witnessing his mother's struggle with diabetes, he made a difficult decision to leave teaching, and pursue a naturopathic medical degree, so that he could medically help the people of the world to overcome what appeared (and continues to appear) to be one of the most significant epidemics in history - type 2 diabetes.

Dr. Dennis Godby, ND
Breakthrough Solutions for Reversing Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity On or Off a Budget If present trends continue, one in three children born in this century will likely develop diabetes in his or her lifetime. Obesity, equally, is on the rise, and the prevalence of both conditions is directly related to income and education. The poorest populations suffer disproportionately from diseases that can prevented and treated using lifestyle management, dietary changes, stress management and other inexpensive, mind-body solutions. Rather than focusing on nutritional supplements, Dr. Godby will explore a breadth of proven, practical tools and techniques that clinicians can apply to their current practice. Attendees will learn how to empower patients to take control of their health using practices like blood glucose monitoring, enjoying healthy food, specific exercise techniques, emotional health awareness, fat loss methods and more.
About Dr. Dennis Godby, MA, ND Dr. Godby has been interested in nutrition and running since he was a child. While studying exercise physiology and nutrition in college, he organized family "fun runs" in his college community to encourage exercise. He has made a solo run of 1,420 miles over the Northern Cascades and Canadian Rockies. To raise media awareness about human rights in Central America, he ran from San Francisco to Washington, D.C. He went on to found The Run: Moving Natural Medicine Forward, a 3,000-mile transcontinental run to increase naturopathic medicine visibility (see After graduating from NCNM at age 48, he founded "Diabetes Natural Path Center," a medical practice in Sacramento, CA and has been practicing there since 2005. Witnessing his mother's struggle with type 2 diabetes inspired Dr. Godby to make a professional commitment to help fight the diabetes epidemic.

Dr. Dennis Godby, (bio Founder and Lead Runner:
Dr. Dennis Godby, ND, Founder of The Run Having become a naturopathic doctor at the ripe age of 48, I feel extraordinarily grateful to be able to practice this incredible medicine and to witness so many patients transform their lives in pursuit of health and happiness.
In the halls of NCNM, I met my classmate, Dennis Godby, not knowing that he would become my partner in this historic event and in pursuing those two goals for our profession. Since graduation, we have gone our separate ways.
Dr. Godby has been in practice in Sacramento, CA. When I received his email about The Run, I knew without hesitation that I had to get involved. Running has been my form of meditation since high school, but, since, I have also taken up Ashtanga yoga and salsa dancing. Whatever the form, movement brings peace and grounding forcefully into my life. Dr. Godby and I are taking the powerful triad of movement, human relationship, and health solutions to the streets of America. See you there!
I am currently working at the Sacramento Naturopathic Medical Center with Dr. Dennis Godby and am so glad to be a part of spreading the word about Naturopathic Medicine!
My brother, Dennis (Dr. Godby), has always been a resource and tremendous inspiration and I am delighted to share him with you on The Run!
