Research Director Dr. Michael Donaldson
While working toward his Ph.D. as part of a biochemical engineering research group, Dr. Michael Donaldson's wife began struggling with pregnancy-related illnesses. After she turned to a nutritionally-minded chiropractor who was able to help alleviate her symptoms, this inspired Donaldson to ponder just how great the connection between nutrition and chronic diseases is.
Drawing on his research capabilities, he began to collect data. His research led him to realize that, while biotech innovations were amazing in emergencies, if people could prevent getting to the point of needed lifesaving procedures in the first place, this would undoubtedly lead to better health outcomes. He began to wonder: What if a healthy diet and lifestyle could prevent chronic conditions altogether?
His research and discovery of George Malkmus' book God's Way to Ultimate Health lead him to the incredibly rewarding Hallelujah Diet. In a short time thereafter, Michael went to North Carolina for an interview, created a plan, and joined the Hallelujah Diet team in 1998 as Director of Research.
Dr. Micheal proudly stands behind the scientifically up-to-date guidelines of the Hallelujah Diet, always ensuring that consumers around the globe are getting everything they need from their foods and supplements. Dr. Donaldson was the first to test whether or not plant-based diets contained enough vitamin B12 and were crucial to MyHDiet by adding the proper nutrients and supplementation to the lifestyle.
Dr. Michael Donaldson continues to research and help the Hallelujah Diet process achieve proper nutrients, vitamins, and minerals within the diet. He was a key speaker and creator of the webinar Bypassing the Bypass Surgery: Know your Options, guest author of the informative The Plant Paradox: Can You Trust Dr. Gundry? and the force behind the groundbreaking Water Research Update webinar.
"We're teaching people self-healing, the healing that's already built into the cells," said Michael. "It's just about providing the right materials, and health will result."
Dr. Michael works diligently to promote this message every day and is excited for the subsequent discovery, scientific breakthroughs, and challenges to his research as he understands how much his findings can change people's lives. Micheal is excited and delighted to see what science, the Hallelujah Diet, and God has in store for everyone next.
