He is currently a Trustee of Maharishi International University, and Chairman of the Department of Physiology and Health. Dr. Wallace has written a number of books. Coauthored by his brilliant and creative wife Samantha, his latest book is The Rest and Repair Diet: Heal Your Gut, Improve Your Physical and Mental Health, and Lose Weight. The book integrates ancient Ayurvedic wisdom with the latest findings in modern medicine.
The Wallaces have four grown children and six grandchildren.
