Bio Balance Health was initiated in 1988 by two Australians following their visit to Health Research Institute- Pfeiffer Treatment Centre (now closed) in the USA, and their discussions with William J Walsh, PhD, Scientific Director. They were so impressed with the work being done there in managing patients with mental and behavioral disorders using individualised biochemical and nutritional programs, they resolved to bring this knowledge to Australia. Joining with like-minded Australians they set up by Balance Health Association in 2000.

Under the guidance of Dr Walsh this volunteer team worked hard to establish the pathology assessment facilities not at that time available in Australia, which assist in informing the Doctors of the biochemistry. Dr Walsh trained the first doctor in Australia in 2004. As well, he gave public lectures in Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Our innovative research projects

What makes us different

Psychiatry is different from other medical fields in that Psychiatrists use mental health symptoms as the basis of patient treatment, rather than testing the biochemical physiology of the patient.

The Bio Balance Health (BBH) trains doctors in the use of blood and urine pathology testing, for biochemical and biomarker changes commonly associated with mental health. These test results can be correlated with the patient’s symptoms, and provide an excellent basis to develop research projects.

BBH supports and funds research at leading Universities to confirm the science we are observing.

Our responsibility is to understand the physiology of why mental health appears and how to manage it.

By asking the questions:
What are we measuring?
What is the active ingredient?
What are the interferences in this test?
We have developed, and supported, world leading original research which has:

• Developed a reliable protocol for collection storage and handling of the unstable Pyrrole in urine
• Provided separate measures for Pyrroles and urobilinogen in urine confirmed the molecular journey of pyrroles in urine from fragmentation of regulatory heme.
• This world leading original research has confirmed pyrroles in urine are a biomarker of oxidative stress. Clinical application of this knowledge is already improving patient outcomes.

Research opportunities are boundless as we explore further the health implications of high levels of pyrroles in urine. Subscribe to our Science of Pyrroles in Urine lecture to learn what we have proven.

Symptoms of mental health can often be related to biochemical imbalances.


For many years researchers and clinicians have felt that there is a relationship between sub-optimal function of the methylation pathway and mental health.


We all know pee can be a warning sign. If pee is yellow, you are likely to be dehydrated. If it’s clear you know you’ve drunk enough water. Pee can show a lot more warnings. For example, infections of the bladder.

Anxiety & Depression

Anyone can feel sad, moody or low at times, but some people experience these feelings intensely, for long periods of time (weeks, months or even years) and sometimes without any apparent reason.

Gut & Mental Health

Increasing evidence has linked gut microbiota to both gastrointestinal and extra-gastrointestinal diseases.

Bipolar & OCD

Bipolar Disorder is a debilitating mental illness marked by extreme shifts in mood. Symptoms can include an extremely elevated mood called mania.


Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe brain disorder in which people interpret reality abnormally.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism and autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are diseases which are characterized by physical (neurological function and pathology) and behavioral (social interaction) abnormalities that are most commonly diagnosed in children.
