Part II – Dr. Michael Wald
GMO Free Lifestyle
Dr. Michael B. Wald, Director of Nutritional Services at Integrated Medicine of Mount Kisco, NY, may very well be the most highly known doctor of nutrition in the United States.In practice for twenty-three years, Dr. Wald appreciates the importance of the mind and body in the healing process. Dr. Wald possesses a keen ability to zero-in on health problems that many other health practitioners, regardless of specialty, often miss. He makes this possible through a combination of his diagnostic intuitiveness (developed by completing a medical school, chiropractic and nutrition education), laboratory work, questionnaires and his patent-pending Blood Detective software that both medically and nutritionally interprets laboratory work.“People call me the blood detective. It all started when a grateful patient said to me, “Dr. Wald, you’re like a real life blood detective” (after Dr. Wald diagnosed her illness after years of suffering), and the name stuck. Sadly, each day in my practice I uncover health issues missed by many different types of doctors. I attribute this to not enough time paid during consultation with the patient and limited laboratory tests (often limited by medical specialty). I perform testing often, on a single patient, that may span more than 6 medical specialties; this allows me to build a “metabolic map” of my patients and appreciate health issues that are simple missed when doctors “divide up” organ systems by medical specialty.” – Dr. Michael WaldDr. Wald is the founder and president of the Integrated Medicine & Nutrition Institute; he is double-board certified in nutrition; is a certified dietician-nutritionist (CDN); a certified nutritional specialist (CNS); a certified clinical nutritionist (CCN); he holds a postgraduate degree in chiropractic (DC) from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic; a master’s degree (MS) from the University of Bridgeport; he earned an MD degree from the University of Health Sciences School of Medicine, Antigua; and was past Director of Education for the International & American Association of Clinical Nutritionists (IAACN).Dr. Wald has published over a dozen books, writes regular health articles, lectures across the United States and internationally, and has developed the Blood Detective software programs and nutritional product line that have revolutionized how the healing professions individualized nutritional solutions. His newest books due for publication in the fall of 2013 are entitled, The Blood Detective’s Longevity Secrets and Gluten-A-Holic.
