About The Dr. Rath Health Foundation

The Goals of the Dr. Rath Foundation

The primary goal of the Dr. Rath Health Foundation is to establish a New Global Healthcare System that can be implemented simply and economically in any country, at the local level and right up to the level of national public health policy. Based on scientific breakthroughs in the areas of vitamin research and cellular health, it is already possible that cardiovascular disease, cancer, AIDS and other common diseases will be largely unknown in future generations if this New Global Healthcare System is implemented now.

This primary goal has particular relevance to people in the developing world where the integration of natural health approaches into public health strategies will significantly improve the health and lives of millions of people, who may otherwise be unable to access any other forms of affordable healthcare.

Indisputably the turn from the second millennium to the third has coincided with worldwide changes in healthcare. Each day more and more patients and health professionals are taking advantage of the fact that most common diseases can be effectively prevented, and treated naturally, by vitamins and other natural therapies.

Health improvements achieved with essential nutrients are so superior to conventional medical approaches for cardiovascular diseases, cancer, AIDS and other common diseases that major health insurance companies in Europe are now reimbursing the cost of these remedies.

In spite of exploding health care costs, the most common chronic diseases have reached epidemic proportions and they continue to spread. Among them are:

The Foundation is also actively engaged in worldwide initiatives that promote the right to natural health freedom, particularly in Europe and the United States, where the activities of the Codex Alimentarius Commission and the European Commission most threaten that basic human right. The Foundation also recognizes that health is inextricably linked to peace and security and has consequently launched the Make Health Not War initiative which can be seen on the homepage of this website.

Winning the fight against cancer and AIDS

  1. All cancer cells and all viruses - including HIV - spread with the very same disease mechanism. Cancer cells and virus-infected cells produce large amounts of enzymes that are able to attack and destroy the surrounding connective tissue in the body like ‘biological scissors’.
  2. Since both diseases spread in the same way, they can both be stopped by understanding how to block this biological invasion. The natural amino acid lysine, especially in combination with ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is able to neutralize these enzymes and to significantly reduce or entirely block the spread of cancer and AIDS.
  3. Almost every person on earth suffers from a deficiency in these key nutrients - lysine and vitamin C - because our body is unable to produce neither one of these nutrients. Education about this basic health fact is the first step to control these epidemics.

The available scientific and clinical evidence leaves no doubt that the preventive and therapeutic use of these essential nutrients and the implementation of this knowledge into public health policies will significantly reduce the death rate from cancer and AIDS. Further documentation is available on this website and other Internet health sites.

Some Effects of the Foundation's Work

Dr. Rath’s medical advance in the natural control of cancer was presented in a full-page announcement in the world’s largest newspaper USA Today, on March 8, 2002. The medical community immediately understood the impact of this discovery. Within weeks of the announcement, the following remarkable events occurred:

  • The American Medical Association issued a recommendation urging daily use of vitamins for all Americans to improve their health
  • The Royal College of Physicians in Great Britain launched a campaign on nutritional medicine
  • The World Health Organization started a worldwide campaign to fight cancer.

In a letter to the WHO President Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, Dr. Rath urged her to call for a global conference specifically dedicated to natural health programs.

The targeted outcome of the implementation of the New Global Healthcare System is the prevention and eradication of disease. Vitamin research and Cellular Health constitute a sound scientific basis for the implementation of effective, side effect free and economical healthcare measures.
