Dr. Michael Wald, The ‘BloodDetective’, Gets to the Bottom of Health Mysteries
Dr. Michael Wald
Dr. Michael Wald has so many degrees and certifications that it’s easier to identify him by his nickname, the BloodDetective.
A doctor of chiropractic with a medical diploma (not a medical license), Wald is double-board-certified in nutrition. He’s also a dietician and sports nutritionist, and he provides acupuncture in some states. But the most important thing to know is that he’s pioneered a method for analyzing bloodwork to detect hidden health problems and develop natural treatment protocols.
“This is an all-too-common scenario, in my experience: You go to your medical doctor only to be told, ‘I’m sorry, all your bloodwork is normal. I can’t help you.’ Just because your bloodwork is ‘normal’ doesn’t mean that you’re imagining not feeling well,” Wald says. “The first thing that I do is trust the patient. Second, I draw bloodwork that’s usually far beyond what most doctors do. I don’t limit my choices of lab investigations based on a medical specialty. Third, I compare the lab results not just to normal blood ranges, but also to optimal ranges. Why not shoot for using natural health techniques that are focused on bringing lab ranges into healthy, and not merely average, ranges? Finally, I consider a thorough medical health history.”
Using the BloodDetective approach, Wald says hidden health problems are revealed and he can target natural treatments to what the individual needs.
