Dr. Matthias Rath

Dr. Rath has been devoting his life to redirecting the current national healthcare systems towards the prevention of disease and thus to creating the conditions for their demise.

In doing so, Dr. Rath, his research team and the whole organization stand in clear opposition to conventional approaches, which—because they are limited to alleviating symptoms—tacitly accept the long-term expansion of diseases.

Over recent decades, there have been many declarations about the need for a preventive healthcare system, but these have been empty promises. Not until understanding the importance of micronutrients for our health, a scientific basis was established to develop effective prevention strategies that can be implemented on a national and global level. A chronic micronutrient deficiency in human cells is the leading cause of heart attack, stroke, cancer and other common diseases. An optimal supply of cellular nutrients through the diet or nutritional supplements can help to prevent these health problems.

The basic research work on cancer and cardiovascular disease published by Dr. Rath and two-time Nobel Prize laureate Linus Pauling in the early 1990s laid the foundation for a worldwide explosion in micronutrient research. Today, there are already more than 60,000 scientific studies that document the importance of vitamins for our health.

Of course, this change in global health consciousness was accompanied by the resistance of the status quo.

Dr. Rath considers himself to be not only an explorer in the field of medicine, but also a pioneer of preventive medicine on a global scale—a role that he assumes together with the whole organization.

The creation of a prevention-oriented healthcare system can only be attained through the involvement of many people. Therefore, we invite everybody to work with us towards this goal.
