His medical degree is from the University of Health Sciences/Chicago Medical School.
An accomplished author, Dr. Theo's first book, The Arthritis Cure, became an international #1 best-seller and resulted in a major paradigm shift in the way arthritis and other chronic diseases are treated. Dr. Theo spends much of his time lecturing and speaking with the media. He has been a guest on The Today Show, Prime Time Live, NBC and CBS Evening and Morning News, CNN, Fox Network News and many others. In addition, he has been featured in print in such publications as Time, Newsweek, US News & World Report, People, USA Today, The NY Times, Parade, People, Reader's Digest, Prevention, and other magazines. He speaks often on local and national radio, and he is a frequent lecturer at medical conventions and forums throughout the country.
In addition to providing input for clinical design, Dr. Theo will assist the company in the future direction of Imagenetix's Celadrin products.
Ms. Lorna R. Vanderhaeghe ("Lorna") is a best-selling author and medical journalist who has been researching and writing on nutritional subject matter for the past 20 years. Lorna received her B.Sc. degree in Bio-Chemistry from Simon Fraser University located in Canada.
Lorna is an associate editor for Total Health Magazine and is an author and a co-author of a number of health books including The Immune System Cure published in six countries and translated into French, Dutch, and German, and she is author of the Canadian bestseller Healthy Immunity: Scientifically Proven Natural Treatments for Conditions from A-Z.
