THE MORNING SHOW
Robert Thiel, Ph.D.
Natural Approaches to Health and Nutrition
Robert Thiel, Ph.D. is not a medical doctor, nor does he portray himself as one. He is a nationally recognized nutrition researcher, scientist, naturopath, and a natural health consultant. He believes that clinical science demonstrates that through nutrition and lifestyle changes, the body can heal itself of both chronic and acute ailments; and that for congenital disorders, symptoms associated with them can often be reduced or eliminated.
Dr. Thiel has found that natural approaches to health, including nutrition, can be an important contributor to health and well being. He believes that through naturopathy, people can make tremendous differences in their own health and quality of life. However, he has learned that it is extremely important to individualize recommendations (as opposed to making recommendations for specific disease conditions). Dr. Thiel believes that his high clinical success rate’s are the result of following that philosophy. In addition to being the founding director of the Down Syndrome-Epilepsy Foundation, Dr. Thiel was co-director of the Center for Natural Health Research, a non-profit organization which supplied research and other items for those interested in natural interventions.
