Dr. Elias Ilyia
Elias Ilyia, PhD President, Diagnos-Techs, Inc.
Dr. Elias is an inspiration to all of us for his personal mission and dedication to the restoration of health to people around the world.
Well-respected in the medical community for his exquisite physiological research, he graduated with his doctorate degree from the American University of Beirut. In 1980, he was bestowed a post doctoral fellowship at the University of Utah. Testing and co-investigative work included prosthetic valves, Jarvik ventricle devices and elecrohydraulic artificial heart energy converters.
After becoming frustrated with the outcome and efforts to save one sick patient at a time, Dr. Elias left the university to pursue a more preventative approach to healthcare. From 1984 through 1990 he excelled as Director, Assistant Professor and Associate Professor at Bastyr College now a university of Natural Health Sciences in Seattle, Washington.
Dr. Elias founded Diagnos-Techs Clinical and Research Laboratory in 1987 - the first Laboratory in the world to introduce salivary-based stress and other hormone tests into routine clinical practice - where he adapted, created, and expanded research on saliva testing.
First published in 1978, Dr. Elias continued to author publications and abstracts while serving as Medical Director, Corporate and Research Consultant and President of Diagnos-Techs, Inc. He has organized symposiums, workshops and was the featured speaker at over 40 lectures.
For the first time since the foundation of his clinical lab, Dr. Elias is reaching out to the public with energy and passion to share his message of hope, mission of health, and dedication to alleviating suffering and the restoration of health through the science of laboratory medicine.
