Ever since his childhood, Gerald Roliz, CNC has been on a quest to optimize his own health.
In high school, he studied which foods to eat to enhance his cognitive skills to enable him to score high on college entrance exams. While attending U.C Berkeley, he majored in Molecular & Cell Biology to understand the unseen activities within the body’s cells and Psychology to understand the inner workings of the brain. After graduation, he worked as a pharmaceutical sales representative for 5 years where he taught medical doctors about Drug to Drug interactions, adverse side effects, and withdrawal syndrome caused by many of the commonly prescribed pharmaceutical medications. He also learned how pharmaceuticals affect the body’s tissues, including the brain, muscles, nerves and more.
While working as a pharmaceutical sales representative, he read in the March 16, 2003 edition of The New York Times Magazine (pages 29-31) Lisa Sanders, MD states that the dean of her medical school said “Half of what we teach you here is wrong — unfortunately, we don’t know which half.”
Just as uncertain as the flip of a coin, Gerald realized that the use of chemical based medicines is a risky feat and left his role as a drug rep. He regained his conscience and devoted the next chapter of his career researching the real cause of disease and illness. In doing so, he found non-chemical based solutions that are nearly 100% certain to bring a person optimal health and vitality.
After studying whole food nutrition to improve the body’s natural healing ability at the molecular level, he opened his nutritional practice, The Healing Body. In addition to showing signs of malnutrition, he noticed that his clients presented symptoms that resembled the side effects of their prescribed medications. He further discovered that some of his clients’ diseases were actually caused by them.
Certified by the American Association of Nutritional Consultants (AANC), he provides nutritional consultations for clients and lectures nationally to holistic health care practitioners on the application of whole food nutrition and herbs to restore human health. He is a regular guest lecturer at the top Traditional Chinese Medicine Universities in Northern California. Gerald is also the author of The Pharmaceutical Myth: Letting Food be Your Medicine is the Answer for Perfect Health.
Gerald is passionate about composting, growing vegetables, raising chickens, bow hunting, gathering wild herbs, eating fresh or fermented foods and connecting with family members around the kitchen table or during a hike in the outdoors.
