In 2005, his testimony to the Canadian Parliament defending the efficacy of nutritional therapy demonstrated this unwavering commitment.

We are forever grateful for his instrumental work elevating awareness of safer, natural alternatives that remain shunned by mainstream medicine despite burgeoning supportive evidence.  

While the orthomolecular community deeply feels his absence, Dr. Saul’s voluminous contributions, including his website, endure as an invaluable cache of insights and inspiration for generations to come. We honor his courage to swim against the tide of medical dogma, driven by his compassion to relieve suffering through sustainable, cure-based methods.

Dr. Saul often noted that “we need more healers and fewer salesmen.” May we rise to fill this void by embracing his shining example. With open arms and hearts, we bid him safe passage. The teaching torch is passed, and his light will continue illuminating the nutritional healing path for humanity. With gratitude, Dr. Saul - your service and wisdom are forever medicine.
