Matthias Rath, M.D.

doctor-rathMatthias Rath, M.D. is an internationally renowned scientist, physician and health advocate. His scientific discoveries in the areas of heart disease, cancer and other diseases are reshaping medicine.

He is the founder of Cellular Medicine, the groundbreaking new health concept that identifies nutritional deficiencies at the cellular level as the root cause of many chronic diseases.

Dr. Rath was a close research associate and personal friend of the late Nobel Laureate Dr. Linus Pauling. Shortly before his death in 1994, Dr. Pauling stated that Dr. Rath’s discoveries would later be seen among the most important of the 20th century.

At that time, Dr. Rath and Dr. Pauling contacted pharmaceutical companies in order to make sure that these discoveries were being implemented globally in order to save as many human lives as possible. Negotiations took place with executives of Hoffman LaRoche, the world’s largest manufacturer of vitamin C and other global pharmaceutical manufacturers as well as with others. While acknowledging the research, all manufacturers contacted refused to support implementation of the discoveries for fear of competition with their in-house patented drugs.

In order to finance the scientific confirmation of these discoveries Dr. Rath decided to start his own research institute in concert with his long-time colleague, Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki. The Dr. Rath Research Institute in Santa Clara is financed today exclusively by people who have benefited from the research conducted and the natural health programs developed at the institute. Over the past decade the Dr. Rath Research Institute has become the leading institution of its kind in the world.

In order to distinguish himself from the profit-driven pharmaceutical investment business with diseases, Dr. Rath assigned all shares of his companies to a non-profit foundation. The revenues of the Dr. Rath World Health Foundation are being used to support research and education in natural health and related humanitarian efforts.

After having been attacked for more than a decade from the stakeholders of pharmaceutical medicine, media and politics, his achievements are now being internationally recognized. Dr. Rath is a member of the New York Academy of Sciences, the American Heart Association and other professional scientific organizations and he has recently been invited to serve as reviewer for several international scientific journals.

Throughout his struggle against special interests, Dr. Rath and his team was supported by patients and the public who early on had recognized the significance of his discoveries for their health. His popular health books “Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Attacks” and “Cancer” have sold millions of copies in all major languages.
