Mr President of ISOM, Prof. Atsuo Yanagisawa.
Ms Director of Japan Operation, ISOM, Risa Yanagisawa.
Your excellencies ladies and gentlemen
I am so glad today to be nominated into the Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame.
It is a great honor for me and for my country and I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for voting for my election which for me it means you do appreciate my pioneering 10 years of introducing orthomolecular treatment into my practice in Ras El Ma with great results, which my patients are very grateful for.
Next I would like to extend my gratitude to my family, especially my wife who in spite of losing her dear father 2 weeks ago, bravely came with me for this medical congress, showing her love and support. I am grateful to my 3 beautiful children for their enthusiasm even though sometimes I work 14 hours a day with my patients, which is not easy for children to understand, and thank my parents who stay with them when we are away.
I am proud of my 20 years old son for choosing to study nutrition at university in Tlemcen and I hope he will become a good biologist in the future.
Next, I would like to thank my country for giving me all the support and understanding in introducing integrative medicine in making Algeria the first country to promote at national level orthomolecular medicine.
7 years ago I have put the foundation of the SANMO (Algerian Society for Nutrition and Orthomolecular Medicine) and as its president I am proud to announce that our membership reached nearly 600 members. In their name I also thank you for developing mutual international collaboration on orthomolecular topics and trainings, and I would like to take the opportunity to thank them as well for sharing my vision.
I pledge my full support to the orthomolecular medicine and to you and I thank you one more time for the honor and for the trust.
President of SANMO
