Naturopathic Clinical Nutrition
by Jonathan Prousky, ND, MSc, CCNM Press, Toronto, 2008
(416 pages, available at Amazon.com)

With its wealth of clinical information, well organized and clearly explained, this insightful text recommends restorative treatments and offers research as evidence. With ten years of clinical experience, seeing patients with various health problems including psychiatric disorders, author Jonathan Prousky, ND, MSc knows about the healing capabilities of nutritional regimens, even for anxiety, ADHD, autism, alcoholism, bipolar disorder, depression and schizophrenia. While the author did not address this medical text to laymen, Prousky's accessible writing style makes scientific and medical information understandable to every reader, no matter what their education. Prousky presents clinical pearls about nutrition and nutrients. He encourages readers to learn about naturopathic and orthomolecular care, cooperate with differential diagnostic workups and consider the benefits of regimens of vitamins, trace minerals and amino acids i.e. supplements.

Abram Hoffer's preface states that readers can trust Prousky's reports. After meeting Jonathan Prousky and reading many books about orthomolecular medicine, I agree. Prousky's book reminds me of Dr. Hoffer's Orthomolecular Medicine for Physicians (OMP), printed in 1989 and no longer easy to find. Hoffer's book still reads fresh and clear today. Prousky's clinical guide adds current information. Fortunate readers of both books will realize that Jonathan Prousky has carefully studied Abram Hoffer's research and clinical findings.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In my opinion this text lacks adequate scientific explanation and underpinning. Topic selection, explanation and scope are severely limited. Disappointing, coming from an author with this caliber of education and experience.
