Born into a godly and loving home, Dr. Pete grew up in church and gave his life to Christ at a young age. But while he loved the Lord and deeply desired to serve Him, throughout his formative years he realized that something important was missing from his relationship with Christ. “I did all the things that Christians do to cultivate intimacy with God,” he recalls. “I prayed and read my Bible regularly, I was involved in my church, and to the best of my ability I shared my faith with others. But there was still a void in my closeness to God that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.”
After graduating from Bethel University in Minnesota, where he met and married his wife Stephanie, Dr. Pete continued on to Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minneapolis, graduating in 2001 as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Little did he know that God was also subtly preparing him to serve Him in a way that he would have never thought possible.
Dr. Pete Sulack is the founder and majority owner of one of the largest clinics in North America. His office has seen more than 1,000,000 patient visits over the last 13 years, validating his unique approach to health and wellness.
Dr. Pete actively treats patients traveling from around the world seeking his services. His studies on the effects of stress, coupled with testimonials from patients and attention in medical communities have garnered him the title of “America’s Leading Stress Expert.”
