Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Nieper is widely known, so his book has a built-in audience who follow his well-trumpeted work and regard him as an antiestablishment hero. He grew up in Germany, where he became interested in physics and medicine. Arriving in the U.S. after World War II, he became associated with the Sloan-Kettering Institute, especially its Cancer Center. There he continued to develop mineral transporters and orthomolecular and eumetabolic nutrient supplements. Those knowledgeable about the fringes of cancer therapy will recognize such names as Krebs, Burk, McNaughton, and Pauling in the text, and also such remedies as laetrile, mandelonitriles, squalene, and iridodials. During the 1992 presidential campaign, Ross Perot's office called on Nieper for advice. Nieper's view of the establishment's reaction to him is indicated by such headings as "The Heavy Hand of the FDA" and "The Harmful Politics of Research and Healthcare." Meanwhile, the book's references are seldom to articles in high-quality journals, and the few that are, are on subjects not really pertinent to Nieper's controversial work. William Beatty

dr neiper will always be remebered to me as a true hero in alternative medicine! my spouse has multiple sclerosis and without his works, she would be alot worse off today! his findings stunned the american fda and they forbade him entrance into the U.S. because his cures were not approved by our ever protecting FDA. what is the FDA protecting us from? getting well? Thank you Dr.Neiper for your books,writings, and for helping my spouse!

Format: Paperback
This brilliant man was a threat to all conventional pharmacologically-driven medicine in this country and I am not surprised that they shut him down. His research found the answers to many of the major systemic diseases which are bankrupting this country such as: cancer, heart disease, diabetes and multiple sclerosis and his cures are still standard in Europe and Japan where Big Pharma has less power than here. Medical students owe it to themselves to investigate his thinking before they are sucked in to the blind, uncurious, dogma-ridden, superstitious and ineffective world of conventional medicine.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book. He has a great deal to offer regarding deep thinking about the metabolic or cellular healing of chronic disease. If only this type of medicine had an audience rather than being wholly shunned and suppressed it would be the future. We live in a country where the only treatments that are approved by the FDA have paid them off in millions to pass their trials. And often, those very "approved" treatments don't even work that well - or at all in some cases.

The book is well written and the content is compelling for those of us in the healing professions. It's also not very technical making it appropriate for lay people wanting to learn more or research natural medicine. This is a man of integrity in the healing sciences - something that is not so common.

This will enlighten you to how far the FDA and big pharma will go to keep great science and alternative treatments away from US citizens. It's really depressing that if you become ill and want to try an alternative approach for treatment options that you would have to leave the country. We really have to pressure lawmakers for change. Big pharma lobbies are taking away our choices for proven alternative treatments for these horrible diseases.

Interesting book.

I'm not a biochemist so it is pretty hard to truly understand what is explained. However, form a high level seems to make sense, but unfortunately haven't found scientific evidence or studies that back up his claims.
