I have been researching the drug industry and psychiatry over the past year and have attended a Harvard Medical School seminar to see what is being taught concerning psychopharmacology. What I have learned is that for generations, orthomolecular physicians like Dr. Philpott have been curing mental illness by recognizing that brain malfunctions are caused by medical problems such as thyroid, kidney, and sleep disorder problems, an immune disorder cerebral allergy, metal toxicity, Candida infestation and enzyme and nutritional imbalances such as essential fatty acids deficiency (malnourishment). Biochemical testing can assist in determining underlying causes. Even Harvard's Dr. Stoll, who receives compensation from about ten different drug companies, recommends fish oil to provide essential Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins as an effective treatment for depression.

According to Prescription for Nutritional Healing P. 448, A thyroid condition can cause fatigue, mood swings and depression, P. 153: An allergy is an inappropriate response by the body's immune system to a substance that is not normally harmful. P. 157: Cerebral allergies cause swelling of the lining of the brain. P. 154: Persons between the ages of fifteen and twenty-five are the most allergy-prone.

Entire food families can cause allergic reactions in susceptible people. Repeated headaches, or schizophrenic, violent, or aggressive reactions, can be an indicator. Foods such as corn, wheat, rice, dairy products, and chocolate, and certain food additives, are the most common offenders but chemicals such as petrochemicals or other substances, like mold can also cause serious problems.

As a Chinese herbal practitioner, I have recommended this book to several clients who have autistic children. In almost every case, there has been a marked improvement in the child's situation. The book details not only the science and theory behind Dr. Philpott's approach, but more importantly spends a lot of time discussing practical implementation. Conventional western medicine still tends to ignore the dramatic impact our diets can have on the mental/emotional aspect of our lives; BRAIN ALLERGIES makes a very significant contribution to the growing literature around the old and very true proverb: "we are what we eat." If you're dealing with a child with emotional and/or cognitive difficulties, PLEASE read this book!

This book was very helpful in explaining what was going on with my daughter's dairy allergy. Now I finally have some confirmation of what I have been observing and know what to do to help her.

The bit about any food, not just carbohydrates causing diabetic reactions was very interesting and I'd recommend reading it to anyone suffering diabetes.

Also, I've worked with the homeless mentally ill and wish the psychiatrists in the programs they are in would read this. These poor people are not responding to conventional medicine, and what these men wrote could be of invaluable help to them.

The book also talks about a cure for tardive diskinesia in two days using nutrients. More people should know about that.

It was the first to really explain vitamin C therapy and how it works. I was glad to see Linus Pauling redeemed. After reading it I looked it up online and found a wealth of information, including a charity trying to give free vitamin C to people with HIV in South Africa. I guess a lot of other people believe in vitamin C, also!

I almost put it down when I got to the part about using magnets to calm agitated people with mental illness, but was really glad I persevered, the rest of the book was well written and incredibly informative.

Format: Paperback
After 5 years of my brother being diagnosed with schyzophrenia and coming in and out of mental institutions, this book came into the hands of my mother, who took him (when he was 23 years old) to Dr. Philpott's Hospital, at the time in St. Petersburg, Fla. To shorten, my brother is now 41 years old, has 3 children and has proved Dr. Philpott's stating he had cured 100% of the cases of "schyzophrenia" that came to his hands. Psychiatrists related to pharmaceuticals, of course, have always denied this capacity. If anyone knows if Dr. Philpott's work is being continued please advise to help all the victims of pharmaceuticals.

usualy people conect allergy with something that is only cause headach,neusia,or a rash. but how many of you (the readers) are conecting allergy to a disturb mental state, or one type of schizophrenia?.there are many sections in this book that are all explaining the allergy from the roots and the way it should be treated through the rotation diets combined with specific suplements. it is all explained in an easy to follow-way, and a lot of case histories are covered.an allergy discusion is not complete without this book.
