19 Aug STNH 9: Live from the Bioceuticals Symposium – Dr Albert Mensah
First, they deny it.
Then they reject it.
Then they accept it.
Then they claim it.
“We are in a medical renaissance. In the next five years, there’s going to be tremendous opposition.”
When interviewing guests for my podcast, there have been a couple of “pinch me” moments where I’ve sat down with someone who’s actually a MASSIVE deal to me. Someone I’ve looked up to for being a trailblazer and leader in the industry. This is one such occasion.
Dr Albert Mensah is the co-founder of Mensah Medical in Warrenville, IL, USA. Dr. Mensah has extensive clinical experience in biochemical imbalances, and began his career in the field at the former Pfeiffer Treatment Center under the direction of William J. Walsh, PhD, president of the non-profit Walsh Research Institute (if anyone knows me well, they’ll know that I consider this institute to be the absolute leader in the world for pyroluria/pyrrole disorder). Dr. Mensah presents at conferences internationally, participates in physician training programs, and consults with health care professionals, and he currently serves as a faculty member of the Walsh Research Institute Medical Practitioner Education Program.
As a physician in this specialised field since 2005, Dr. Mensah has treated over 3,000 patients with advanced targeted nutrient therapy. He serves on the board at Walsh Research Institute and serves as a clinical instructor for WRI’s international doctor training programs around the world.
His current practice includes the management of cognitive disorders such as autism spectrum disorder, behaviour/learning disorders, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, anxiety syndromes, childhood and adult schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s Disease as well as family medicine.
But what you will hear in this interview is that Dr Mensah is so much more. He is in fact one of the most heartfelt, genuine, caring practitioners that I’ve ever had to joy to interview. Honestly. There were a few moments where I had goosebumps. This guy is the real deal!
“A true scientist is someone who is willing to throw away their most deeply cherished belief, when presented with the appropriate data.”
– William Walsh
In this interview we chat about:
- How he went from the world’s biggest skeptic to being one of the leading advocates for nutritional therapy.
- Why many doctors are slow to get on board with nutritional therapy.
- Why we need to look for options that are NOT pharmaceuticals.
- Why there is currently an epidemic of mental health issues (especially in kids).
- The effects of folic acid and stress on unborn babies (some of this goes against everything we’ve been taught!).
- How laypeople and patients are pushing doctors to investigate nutritional medicine further.
- How the true champions here are the mums!
“The mantra of traditional medicine is still hard, ingrained, from day one in medical school: Nutrients don’t do anything except feed the body in a very small amount, and to treat problems you need pharmaceutical agents. From day one, week one, this is what you get.”
Yep, this is one powerful, tell-it-like-it-is interview, and an insight into what’s possible for medicine if we all keep an open mind.
