‘Nutrient Power’ at Dominican University Nov. 4
Updated: November 6, 2012 3:35PM
River Forest — The American Nutrition Association will present a lecture titled “Nutrient Power — Advanced Therapies for Mental Illness, ADHD and Autism” Nov. 4 at Dominican University.
William Walsh, Ph.D. will present starting at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4, at Parmer Hall, Room 108, at Dominican University, 7900 W. Division St., River Forest. The program is open to the public.
Walsh will explain how a science-based nutrient therapy system can be used as an alternative to today’s emphasis on psychiatric drugs for the treatment of millions of people diagnosed with mental disorders.
Nutrient imbalances can alter brain levels of key neurotransmitters, disrupt gene expression of proteins and enzymes and cripple the body’s protection against environmental toxins.
Brain-changing nutrient imbalances in patients diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, behavior disorders, depression, schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease have been identified from Walsh’s database containing millions of chemical factors in blood, urine and tissues.
Walsh has a new book on nutrition and these mental illnesses. He is a scientist with more than 30 years of research experience and graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1958, after which he earned a master’s degree from the University of Michigan and a doctorate in chemical engineering from Iowa State University, Ames.
Volunteer work with inmates at the Stateville Penitentiary in Joliet spurred Walsh’s interest in biochemical disorders. He later initiated scientific research that indicated a biochemical predisposition to behavior disorders — research that formed the basis of the diagnostic and treatment protocols being used at the Pfeiffer Treatment Center in Naperville.
Walsh serves as the chief scientist of the Walsh Research Institute. He has written more than 200 scientific articles and reports and has made numerous presentations on his research.
The program is open to the public and free to ANA members. General admission is $20 at the door, or $10 for those who register in advance.
