44. Psychiatry 2.0: The Biochemical Basis of Depression, Autism, Saddistic Serial Killers and School Shootings | Dr Bill Walsh of the Walsh Research Institute
Dr. Bill Walsh is the president of the Walsh Research Institute (@WalshResearch), a non-profit focused on improving human psychiatry and mental health conditions with nutrient-based therapies, rather than drugs. Over the past 30 years, Dr. Walsh has developed biochemical treatments for patients diagnosed with behavioral disorders, attention deficit (hyperactivity) disorder, autism, clinical depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s disease that are used by doctors throughout the world.
After working with over 30,000 patients, Dr. Walsh has achieved some incredible results, including groundbreaking studies reporting reduced violent behavior following nutrient therapy, the 1999 discovery of undermethylation and copper/zinc imbalances in autism, the 2000 finding of metallothionein protein depletion in autism, the 2007 published study linking copper overload and post-partum depression, the identification of five biochemical subtypes of clinical depression, the 2011 development of the Walsh Theory of Schizophrenia and the direction of the Beethoven Research Project that revealed that the composer suffered from severe lead poisoning.
Dr. Walsh has been called in to conduct chemical analyses of more than 25 serial killers and mass murderers, including Charles Manson, Richard Speck, James Oliver Huberty, Patrick Sherrill and Arthur Shawcross to diagnose causes while also assisted medical examiners, coroners, Scotland Yard, and the FBI in these forensics studies. But mental health/performance isn’t limited, Bill has designed nutritional programs for Olympic athletes, NBA players, major league baseball players, a heavyweight boxing champion, PGA and LPGA golfers and continues to make a difference.
In addition to his ongoing research, Dr Walsh leads medical practitioner training programs in advanced, drug-free biochemical/nutrient therapies in Australia, Ireland, Norway, the United States and is a frequently invited guest lecturer having given more than 200 presentations at regional, national and international conferences and symposiums, including the American Psychiatric Association, the U.S. Senate, and the National Institutes of Mental Health.
On top of all that, he has authored numerous peer-reviewed journal articles and scientific reports, been granted five patents and is the author Nutrient Power: Heal Your Biochemistry and Heal Your Brain which describes the evidence-based nutrient therapy system.
