Joan Mathews-Larson holds a doctorate in nutrition and is the founder and executive director of a new psycho-biological model for treating addictions and emotional disorders at Health Recovery Center in Minneapolis. This outpatient treatment facility is internationally renowned, having treated people from around the world. The unique focus of the Health Recovery Center combines therapy with intervention at a biochemical level to repair biochemical damage that often manifests as impaired mental functioning and behavior problems. Her work has received national recognition because of the high recovery rates this model produces. The loss of her seventeen-year-old son to suicide directly after completing a treatment program fueled her ongoing search for more effective solutions. Her clinic has now successfully treated over five thousand people over a twenty-year period. Her research, published in the International Journal of Biosocial and Medical Research in 1987 and 1991, describes this work. Dr. Julian Whitaker's 100th issue of Health & Healing: Tomorrow's Medicine Today lists Joan Mathews-Larson as one of an elite group of six national researchers and practitioners who have made a significant contribution to the world of medicine. Dr. Mathews-Larson's best-selling book Depression Free Naturally published by Ballantine 2000 have led to over 500 television and radio appearances including 20/20, CNBC-TV, The Susan Powter Show, ABC Network News, Universal Studios American Health Network, and CBN-TV's 700 Club.
