Dr. Rath Research Institute

Home of the scientific breakthroughs in heart disease, cancer and other health problems and pioneering research in natural health

The Dr. Rath Research Institute in Santa Clara, California was founded by Matthias Rath, MD, a researcher and medical doctor who made significant scientific breakthroughs in the area of natural health and introduced a new concept called Cellular Medicine. His close friend, two-time Nobel Prize laureate and pioneer in vitamin C research, the late Dr. Linus Pauling, stated that Dr. Rath’s discoveries will be considered as the most important in the 20th Century.

The Dr. Rath Research Institute, led today by a long time associate of Dr. Rath, Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki, PhD, is a world leader in natural health science and the development of micronutrient synergy-based health approaches.

Our Institute

Our researchers use state of the art scientific equipment to gain better insight into how natural substances work in our body’s cells and to develop and test the most effective combinations of natural substances that can benefit our health.

Our Researchers

Headed by Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki, our unique research team comprises the best experts in the fields of cardiology, cancer, virology, toxicology, molecular biology and other areas and also have extensive knowledge of micronutrients and nutrition. Most of our scientists previously worked at the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine in California at the time when it was led by the two-time Nobel laureate Dr. Linus Pauling.

Our Scientific Record

Scientific progress obtained by our Institute’s researchers has gained worldwide recognition. Our studies have been published in dozens of reputable peer-reviewed scientific journals, such as Leukemia Research, Medical Oncology, Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology and many other and as book chapters as well as presented at numerous national and international scientific and medical conferences, including American Association for Cancer Research, American Heart Association, American Association for the Advancement of Science, European Atherosclerosis Society, World Cancer Congress and many other.

The innovative work of our scientific team is being recognized by others in the form of scientific cooperation with various internationally reputable research and clinical institutions, personal invitations to speak at prestigious scientific conferences, and review of research work conducted by other researchers. Many graduate students from all over the world have been contacting us to conduct research at our Institute to gain the first hand knowledge of innovative natural health approaches.

Our Achievements

For the first time in the history of medicine, we provided clinical proof that heart disease can be reversed by a natural program of micronutrients essential for maintaining healthy function of the blood vessel walls.

We were the first to show that heart disease is not a high cholesterol problem, but the consequence of chronic deficiency of vitamin C and other micronutrients in the blood vessel walls.

We were the first to develop a new approach effective in stopping the spread of cancer in the body. In more than 40 scientific publications, we documented that a natural program comprising vitamins, amino acids, polyphenols and other essential nutrients can stop cancer metastasis – the deadliest stage of cancer. In addition, this program can halt the growth of tumors, and decrease the growth of blood vessels that feed the tumor and thus induce the natural death of cancer cells. This research direction was described as “pioneering” in his concluding remarks by the judge in Hamburg, Germany.

We were the first to introduce the “nutrient synergy” approach as the most effective and complete way to maximize the health benefits of micronutrients. Our natural programs use carefully selected and scientifically and clinically tested combinations of micronutrients based on their synergistic effects.

Our research was instrumental in documenting the benefits of micronutrients in AIDS and in unraveling the economic basis of the pharmaceutical business with AIDS. The results of a natural health program which was donated by the Dr Rath Health Foundation to the South Africa National Civic Organization (SANCO) documented that macronutrients are effective in decreasing and halting the progression of AIDS in patients suffering from HIV/AIDS.

Importance of Research for the Future of Natural Health

Research is the most effective tool in supporting the efficacy of natural approaches to health and enforcing the credibility of the entire natural health industry. Research is also the most powerful weapon in defending natural health against the attacks launched by its opponents.

Dr. Rath’s leadership in science and social-responsibility together with an established record and the scientific advancements of the Dr. Rath Research Institute are the vanguard of the natural health movement.
