Health is Wealth is a book based upon hard evidence; not one filled with pseudo-scientific speculation and overblown promises about so-called wonder foods. Dr. Ignarro was as skeptical as most Western medical professionals are about the ability of food to function as medicine before he began to see for himself the incredibly beneficial effects of NO supportive supplements and foods on the vessels of the cardiovascular system. The old If there s a disease, there s a drug for it... philosophy was definitely the culture in which he was immersed. But as he observed the growing amount of empirical evidence proving the powerful effects of amino acids, antioxidants, and other key nutrients, he was forced to rethink his position. His is a rigorous, questing, scientific mind, and, when presented with overwhelming evidence of the ability of the 10 Power Nutrients to prevent and even reverse damage and dysfunction, he became convinced of their effectiveness.
This book is a synthesis of our combined 50 years experience as a research scientist, and as a naturopathic physician, respectively. Our vision of health and disease prevention is based on our own clinical and laboratory experience combined with knowledge garnered from thousands of published research studies that we have synthesized into our unified theory of degenerative disease progression. Traditional research has a narrow field of vision; it looks at a single condition, a single nutrient, or a single drug. Very few studies have been designed to study simultaneously the effects of the many different nutrients that can influence our health. By doing our own meta-survey extraction from a massive body of current research, we have been able to examine nutrient interactions within the body s biochemical pathways and physiological functions. This work has uncovered vital relationships between specific nutrients and healthy tissues relationships that demonstrate an unmistakable link between nutrient supplementation and BioWealth.
There are strong scientific facts that support every conclusion we make. As the healthcare crisis deepens, and support grows for the idea that our current disease-care system must be replaced with a new, different, better approach, we believe that we may be witnessing the beginning of the age of whole-body, whole-health medicine.

Dr. Louis Ignarro's scientific credentials are as good as they get. In 1998, he won the Nobel Prize for Medicine, (along with Robert F. Furchgott and Ferid Murad), for his research discoveries showing the powerful ability of nitric oxide (or NO) to improve cardiovascular health and prevent heart disease. His ground-breaking work the basis for his 2005 best-selling book, NO More Heart Disease established Dr. Ignarro as perhaps the world s leading authority on the nutritional approach to cardiac wellness, along with making possible the development of Viagra. He holds a Ph.D. in pharmacology, is a distinguished professor of pharmacology at UCLA, and is a part-time professor at King Saud University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Dr. Ignarro has spent more than 30 years as a research scientist; seeking to understand the incredible role that nitric oxide plays in fostering optimal human health. One of his most important discoveries was that antioxidants, which reduce cell damage from free radicals, also increase nitric oxide levels by protecting blood vessel walls which secrete nitric oxide from damage. He has received countless awards in addition to his Nobel Prize, including the 2008 Distinguished Scientist Award from the American Heart Association and the 2007 Medal of Merit from the International Academy of Cardiovascular Sciences. He edits the journal Nitric Oxide: Biology and Chemistry, sits on numerous scientific advisory boards, and travels the world speaking to professional and lay audiences about the incredible power of nitric oxide.
Dr. Andrew Myers, N.D., is a naturopathic physician whose career is based on a natural, food-centric, supplement-based approach to overall wellness and disease prevention through therapeutic lifestyle change. A speaker and advocate for the power of a natural, nutritional approach to improved health, he is also the author of Simple Health Value, which is a book about five easy changes people can make to improve their health. Dr. Myers has nearly 20 years experience in the field of natural medicine. He is the President and Chief Science Officer of NutraGenetics, a global product development company founded by Nobel Laureate Dr. Louis Ignarro.
