Born in Palermo, Italy on May 13, 1933, and passed away in 2009. She was raised and educated in Rome. "She was an early practitioner of medical care that integrated mainstream and complementary and alternative treatments, which the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), within the National Institutes of Health (NIH), began to study only in 1997. Dr. Corsello was among 25 physicians in the US selected to serve on an advisory committee to the Office of Alternative Medicine, created by Congress in 1992 (expanded by Congress in 1997 into NCCAM). She was an internatonally respected clinician, lecturer and the co-founder of the Foundation for the Advancement of Innovative Medicine (FAIM). Her book, The Ageless Woman, published in 1999, focused on anti-aging medicine and bio-identical hormone replacement." [1]

"Mainstream doctors are made nervous by Dr. Corsello’s therapies. “I had a hard time stomaching this video,” said Shari Midoneck, a specialist in internal medicine and infectious diseases at New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center. Said Stephen Barrett, a retired physician and the founder of Quackwatch, “Chelation is the most dangerous form of quackery there is.”" [2] She is a former orthomolecular psychiatrist.
