Episode 129 Nutrient Power For Illness With Dr. William Walsh

In his book “Nutrient Power”, Dr. Walsh provides the scientific foundation his approach to nutrient therapies.  This approach recognizes that 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.  Dr. Walsh treats imbalances in patients challenged by behavior disorders, ADHD, autism, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease.  He’s sharing his treatment protocol and approach in this interview.
