Book & DVD. Several years before he died at age 91, Dr Abram Hoffer was interviewed by Dr Jonathan Prousky as part of the Grand Rounds for residents and interns at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. That seminal interview is reproduced in this learning kit, accompanied by an educational text designed to introduce orthomolecular psychiatric approaches into conventional medical school curriculum and provide integrative healthcare practitioners with a continuing education module. Features the most current evidence-based research on complementary and alternative medical studies of anxiety. Includes a one-hour DVD and 100-page book with references.
Orthomolecular medicine can be effective in the treatment of schizophrenia, a mental disorder often treated with drugs. Deficiency often plays a major role in the onset of this condition. Thus, nutritional supplementation is integral to Dr. Hoffers approach to schizophrenia. This short, concise guide explains how the disorder is diagnosed, what causes it and how to effectively treat it without drugs.
Niacin (vitamin B3) is a small molecule made of only 14 atoms, smaller even than the simplest sugar. But this one molecule has profound effects on health: it plays a role in more than 500 reactions in the body. Many illnesses are caused by too little niacin, and many illnesses can be cured with high doses of niacin. The authors of Niacin: The Real Story are advocates of orthomolecular (nutrition-based) medicine, supporting an approach to wellness that involves substances that naturally occur in the human body. This book makes the case for the widespread use of niacin for the prevention and treatment of health problems. In Niacin: The Real Story readers will discover how to take niacin, with detailed recommendations on forms and therapeutic doses. there is plentiful, accurate information on niacin side effects and safety.

Niacin: The Real Story is for people who want to learn more about niacin and its wonderful healing properties.
This book can be a godsend for many persons--for those who suffer from alcohol addiction, for their friends and loved ones, and for those in the relevant helping professions. Its central message is that alcoholism is primarily a metabolic disease that should be treated with due consideration of its physiological roots. The old moralistic approach and the more recent behavioral and psychological treatment approaches have a dismal record of failure, largely because they pay little or no attention to the crucial physiological and nutritional needs of alcoholics.

It explains the functions of major nutrients, summarizes new research and lays out a comprehensive anti-stress supplement program - to show the way to a longer, healthier life.
The basics of Orthomolecular Medicine explained, demonstrating that megavitaim therapy works.

The first unified theory of nutrient deficiency and dependency Dr Linus Pauling's revolutionary idea in the 1960s: the world is in a B-3 deficiency and dependency pandemic. Some patients may be vitamin deficient and others may be vitamin dependent. Dependency arises when the person has extremely high vitamin requirements. Both these patients will experience general ill-health and manifest a wide variety of disease conditions that are now inadequately treated with drugs in conventional medical practice. The authors prove that large, controlled doses of vitamin B-3 or niacin, are effective in preventing, treating, and even reversing such niacin deficiency and dependency disorders as pellagra, schizophrenia, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, alcoholism, cardiovascular diseases, (high cholesterol), and anxiety.

Working with other scientists, the authors have established that Schizophrenia is basically a physical illness caused by disturbances in the biochemical balance of the body, and that this is determined by genetic disposition.
Evidence has accumulated that Schizophrenia may be due to a defective adrenal metabolism which results in production of a subtle poison in the blood of its victims. In varying degree, from mild to shattering, this Schizophrenic toxin interferes with normal brain function and creates bizarre disturbances and changes in perception, mood, and thought.
Drs. Hoffer and Osmond have discovered a new therapy for Schizophrenia which relies on a single, harmless, and highly effective vitamin-- Vitamin B-3, also known as Niacin, Nicotine Acid or Nicotinamide. Massive doses-- 3,000 Milligrams per day, or several hundred times the normal dietary requirement-- successfully counteract the Schizophrenic Toxin.
This powerful and safe vitamin is also useful in treating depression, children with learning disorders and for many cases of senility.
In clear, simple language, the noted doctors cut through the confussion, misconception and myths that have surrounded Schizophrenia, obscuring its reality and compounding its tragedies.
This book will be a godsend to many victims of this dread disease and their families.
Same head text as Healing Cancer] HEALING WITH CLINICAL NUTRITION From two leading authorities in clinical nutrition, one a mediccl doctor and the other a naturopathic doctor, comes this fundamental text on clinical nutrition. They identify the nutritional deficiencies and dependencies caused by our 'junk-food' diet that have resulted in public malnutrition and serious dietary disorders and diseases.They present an alternative diet that is whole, alive, fresh and varied. For individuals with nutritional problems, they provide appropriate and safe vitamin, mineral, essential fatty acid, and amino acid therapy programs. The book features a 30-page analysis of the nutrient content of common foods as well as case-study accounts of successful nutritional treatment of many common illnesses.
Same head type as Healing Cancer] HEALING CHILDREN'S ATTENTION & BEHAVIOR DISORDERS Following upon the success of his previous books on clinical nutrition therapy for adults, Dr Abram Hoffer examines most chronic illnesses suffered by children, with special attention to learning and behavioral disorders, and based on over 2,000 case studies, discovers that dietary deficiency is the predominant cause. He recommends against pharmaceutical (ritalin, for example), psychotherapeutic, and surgical intervention in favor of the orthomolecular diet he developed many years ago in cooperation with Dr Linus Pauling. Clinical nutrition therapy of physical and psychological illness and disorder uses a combination of optimum nutrition from common foods with vitamin and mineral supplements. The book features full accounts of these case studies, in which many parents will find their own children's illnesses diagnosed; a comprehensive guide to the nutrient value of common foods, which a parent can follow in developing an optimum diet; and a complete guide to vitamin and mineral supplements for children, with recommended dosages.
Set this out as the head text for all for titles] Before his death at age 91, Dr Abram Hoffer published more than 20 books and 500 research papers on clinical nutrition, chiefly on the therapeutic effect of vitamin B-3 and vitamin C. The four most influential of his studies are now available in professional editions, casebound and jacketed, with reference lists and indexes. These titles are essential acquisitions for medical libraries and the foundation of further research in the therapeutic value of clinical nutrition. HEALING CANCER Written in collaboration with his friend and colleague Linus Pauling, Dr Abram Hoffer presents the results of his nutritional or orthomolecular treatment of hundreds of patients suffering from various forms of cancer. These results show that megadoses of vitamin C and other nutrients are not only highly effective for reversing the progress of this disease in many cases but also for improving the quality of life in others. Healing Cancer not only refutes critics of megavitamin treatment for cancer through the evidence of Dr Hoffer's case studies and Dr Pauling's statistical analysis, but, more importantly, offers new hope to cancer patients for surviving this disease.
Recently, interest in nutritional medicine and how to use it properly has increased enormously, and many people are already taking supplemental vitamins in larger than standard dietary doses. Orthomolecular medicine believes that the basis for health is good nutrition. It uses nutrients and normal ("ortho") constituents of the body in optimum amounts as the main treatment.
