LETTER: Medical expert speaks at seminar

It is a shame the Interior Health Authority did not send any mental health care workers to a recent seminar.

It is a shame the Interior Health Authority did not send any mental health care workers to a recent seminar.

On October 4 and 5,  at the Dandelion Wellness Centre in Rossland, Dr. William Walsh, an internationally recognized expert in the field of nutritional medicine from Chicago, gave a talk from his recent book, “Nutrient Power: Heal Your Biochemistry and Heal Your Brain.”

Dr. Walsh has studied more than 25,000 patients with mental disorders and has obtained over 3 million chemistries from blood, urine and tissue samples from these patients over a 35-year period. He has studied every behavioural disorder ranging from ADHD, autism, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, all the way to severe cases of violent behaviour exhibited by toughened criminals (including chemical analyses obtained from more than 25 serial killers and mass murderers).

His knowledge of nutrient therapy has proven to cure some of society’s “hard cases” who were criminals, not because of character defects, but due to biochemical imbalances. This man is one of the most thorough scientists ever to be encountered. Yet, the IHA wasn’t actively involved in promoting any education surrounding this event.

It is high time we start to see well-documented, proven, complementary methods and knowledge being utilized in our health care system. The modalities exist to reverse or, at least, really help improve the quality of life for people suffering with mental disorders. And, think of the money our public services could save!
