are an important part of the total treatment strategy, along with the best that modern
medical science has to offer. Dr. Taub makes full use of the latest research in the concept
of the patient-physician partnership. His work has extraordinary merit”

THE WELLNESS MEDICAL INSTITUTE
Dr. Edward A. Taub is a Pediatrician and Family Physician. He's called “America’s Wellness Medical Doctor,” because he inspires and empowers children and adults to help determine their own health destiny.
He pioneered Integrative Medicine as a blend of modern medicine and older traditions of healing based on stimulating our natural Healing Force. He states that Integrative Medicine must be as spiritual as it is scientific--explaining that "While our health is too important to be left up to science, it's also too important to be unscientific about."
Dr. Taub describes Molecular Wellness as more than just the absence of disease. Rather, it's a sense of vitality reflecting our physical, mental and spiritual energies being in balance so the power of our natural Healing Force flows freely to nourish and nurture our entire being.
The Wellness Solution achieves this goal; indeed it was the basis for the only smoking cessation program ever endorsed by the American Medical Association, as well as the basis for establishing the first Wellness Departments in American hospitals.
As QVC's Wellness Medical Doctor, Dr. Taub created the world's largest Wellness Medical practice with his message broadcast to over 100 million homes: “Health is primarily determined by our own personal responsibility, self-value, and reverence for life."
He's authored 8 books. "Balance Your Body, Balance Your Life" was made into a PBS special. "The Wellness Solution," co-authored with Dr. Ferid Murad, a Nobel Laureate, and David Oliphant, a well-informed patient, was published by the World Almanac Company in 2007.
Dr. Murad shared the 1998 Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering that the lining of our blood vessels, which science calls the Endothelium, produces Nitric Oxide molecules that send signals to our cells and organs to help them stay well and function as nature intended.
The Taub-Murad-Oliphant collaboration led to identifying Nitric Oxide molecules as our "Spark Of Life"--our natural Healing Force. They also identified the Endothelium as a vital organ--teeming with life. These are stunning concepts!
Dr. Taub further identified the Endothelium as our "Life Organ" or "Wellness Organ. This concept is simple enough for virtually anyone to understand, thus offering a landmark opportunity to help people attain Molecular Wellness.
The Wellness Solution supports Endothelial health--which naturally begins fading around the age of 40; but the Endothelium becomes unnaturally sick when attacked by constant stress--which Dr. Taub believes is equivalent to the major virus of our time!
Dr. Taub knows just dispensing facts will not cause most people to behave more healthfully. Thus, his goal is inspiring and empowering individuals to take the necessary steps to live healthier, happier lives by attaining Molecular Wellness.
