MEDICAL DOCTOR TRAINING PROGRAM

The program delivers training in advanced nutrient therapy methods for mental and behavioural disorders and in cuttingedge Autism therapies. Dr. Walsh and his associates have been visiting Australia since 2004. The program has expanded each year, with 64 doctors participating and 165 patients assessed in April 2014.

Prior to the training, each doctor is provided with written and visual learning materials to study. Each has the opportunity to participate with world-class experts in evaluation of more than 50 patients over seven days. Participants are asked to assist in the recruitment of patients for assessment, and will be responsible for their continuing care. The USA experts act as consultants to the participating doctors. A pharmacy professional is present to assist in prompt initiation of treatment when assessment is completed. Ongoing advisory backup is available to participants after the Outreach.

Drs. Walsh, Bowman & Mensah will provide training in advanced nutrient therapies pioneered by the late Dr. Carl Pfeiffer. The sessions will include evaluations of patients diagnosed with Behavioural Disorders, ADHD, Clinical Depression, Post-Partum Depression, Bipolar, Schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease. Participants will learn:

  • The impact of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals on synthesis and functioning of neurotransmitters
  • Nutrient imbalances associated with mental health
  • Biochemical classification of Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Depression and behaviour phenotypes
  • Specialised laboratory testing to enable accurate diagnosis
  • Effective nutrient protocols aimed at normalising blood/brain chemistry
  • The role of epigenetics in mental health
  • A clinical approach for reducing crime & violence
  • A promising new treatment for Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

Dr. Buckley and Dr. Mumper will provide training in advanced Autism protocols that have resulted in numerous reports of great improvement or recovery, including: effective diets; yeast therapies; methyl B-12 treatment; hyperbaric approaches; advanced nutrient therapies; essential fatty acids; chelation; antioxidant protocols, e.g., metallothionein and glutathione promotion; and many other techniques.

This training program will enable you to confidently provide lab testing and accurate diagnosis for these disorders and equip you to design effective individualised treatment programs.

Experienced Australian Doctors will provide training lectures and Case History Reviews.

Dr William J Walsh, PhD

Dr William J Walsh, PhD

Dr. Walsh is a scientist with over 40 years of research experience. He holds a doctorate in Chemical Engineering from Iowa State University. Dr. Walsh’s prison volunteer work during his career at Argonne National Laboratory led to studies of biochemical predisposition to behaviour disorders and crime, and collaboration with the renowned Dr. Carl Pfeiffer of Princeton, New Jersey. Dr. Walsh founded the Health Research Institute in 1982 and the Pfeiffer Treatment Center (now closed) (HRI-PTC) in Illinois in 1989.

He is Founder and President of the Walsh Research Institute, a public charity in Naperville, Illinois. His present activities include an International Physician Training Program and research in the areas of schizophrenia, autism, and behaviour disorders. He has trained more than 65 physicians in Australia and Norway and has the goal of training more than 1,000 doctors throughout the world. Dr. Walsh is preparing a major book on biochemical therapy that will include his new theory for the underlying cause of schizophrenia and an advanced approach for treatment of autism spectrum disorders. Other chapters will describe chemical imbalances associated with depression, behaviour disorders, ADHD, and Alzheimer’s Disease, and advanced nutrient therapies aimed at normalizing brain chemistry. Dr. Walsh’s book is expected to be published in 2011.

“Dr. Walsh is preparing a major book on biochemical therapy that will include his new theory for the underlying cause of schizophrenia and an advanced approach for treatment of autism spectrum disorders.”

Dr. Walsh has studied more than 30,000 patients with mental, behavioural and autistic disorders and developed a database of more than 3 million chemical assays of blood, urine and tissues that has been a valuable research tool. His recent research accomplishments include (a) the 1999 discovery of undermethylation and copper/zinc imbalances in autism; (b) the 2000 finding of metallothionein protein depletion in autism; (c) a 2004 published study linking copper overload and post-partum depression; (d) 2003 identification of oxidative stress as the primary autism trigger; and (e) a forensic study of Beethoven’s relics that revealed that the composer suffered from severe lead poisoning.

Dr. Walsh has authored more than 200 research reports and journal articles, has received 6 U.S. Patents and has been a speaker at 30 international conferences. He has received many awards including the 2002 Lighthouse Award from the Safe Harbor organization and a national “Volunteer of the Year” award from Notre Dame University. In 2006 the International Society of Orthomolecular Medicine named him “Doctor Of The Year”.

Dr Judith Bowman, M.D.

Dr Judith Bowman, M.D.

Dr. Judith Bowman, a specialist in biochemical imbalances, received her B.A. from Illinois Wesleyan University in Biology-Pre-Med. She received her certification and licensure by the American Registry of Radiologic Technology and Board Certification in Nuclear Medicine Technology following the completion of her training at Northwestern University’s School of Nuclear Medicine. She utilised her skills in diagnostic imaging and participated in research and development of radiopharmaceuticals used therein. Dr. Bowman matriculated to The Chicago Medical School, completed her residency at Resurrection Hospital in Chicago in the field of Family Medicine and honed her managerial skills serving as chief resident physician in her final year.

Dr. Bowman served the Lake County Health Department in Illinois specialising in Women’s Health for 8 years. A stint at The Dore Achievement Center in Schaumburg, IL, focusing on innovative therapies for ADD and ADHD patients followed. She further engaged other behavioural disorders such as autism by working at the Pfeiffer Treatment Center (now closed) under the auspices of Dr. William Walsh, Ph.D. (Founder of the Pfeiffer Treatment Center (now closed)).

Dr. Bowman co-founded Mensah Medical located in Naperville, IL, in 2008 with her colleague (Dr. Albert Mensah). Here she combines traditional medicine with the biochemical approach to treat behavioural and cognitive disorders in a more comprehensive fashion.
