He studied for a B.Sc degree in chemistry and Biochemistry at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, then moved to the School of Medicine HU[disambiguation needed] at Hadassah Ein Kerem. Got a degree in Microbiology and completed doctoral studies on molecular genetic mechanisms.

In 1973 he won a scholarship from UNESCO for training in the United States and Canada in teaching science through Multimedia.

In 1975 he received an invitation to serve as a lecturer in science education at Pennsylvania State University in Pennsylvania, as well as a scholarship for a PhD in science education with multimedia. He graduated in 1980 on this issue and got PhD degree from this university.

In 1981-1989 underwent several courses in the U.S. on nutrition and health combined complementary medicine with an emphasis on the use of vitamins and supplements to promote health.
