Two years ago, I followed the Atkins' diet and easily lost 30 pounds, increased my energy level, lowered my LDL cholesterol and boosted my HDLs. I've had no trouble staying on the diet, and my health and stamina keep improving. Now Atkins gives us something even better: a well- documented, easy-to-use guide to using vitamins, minerals and other nutrients as the "treatment of choice" to overcome numerous conditions without the side-effects of drugs. Already, I followed his advice for zinc to completely clear up my acne in 5 days, and carnitine and chromium to further improve energy and mental outlook. This book and the "complementary medicine" movement may revolutionize health care in the United States!

I last reviewed "Dr. Atkins' Vita-Nutrient Solution" on the morning of 9/11/01...the darkest day in our country's great history.
Since that day, I have come to have a greater appreciation for the work of the late Dr. Atkins. He dedicated his life to helping people...more than most people will ever realize.
"Vita-Nutrient Solution" is one of what I refer to as Dr. Atkins
"triology" (the other two are "Age-Defying Diet" and "New Diet Revolution") of "anti-aging breakthroughs"...books designed to help people live longer, healthier, happier and more productive lives. What a great "legacy" he left for mankind indeed. His work will live on for many generations to come.
I've been involved in the nutritional supplement industry for 11 years now. As an avid educator of the public about the positive benefits of proper nutritional supplementation, I can honestly say "Vita-Nutrient Solution" offers the most scientific-based information - and most important of all - real world proof (60,000 patients in 30 years treated at his Center for Complimentary Medicine) that nutritional supplements DO INDEED WORK!
Dr. Atkins trained under & studied the works of some of the world's most respected nutritional experts
(Carlton Fredericks, Weston A. Price, Roger Williams, Adelle Davis). Dr. Atkins combined the knowledge & wisdom of these experts, along with the advances made in modern science, to "master" nutritional therapies for a wide range of health conditions, most notably for diseases of the cardiovascular system and insulin-related disorders.

Unlike most other books, which are based more on speculation / theory / hype, and are not well researched, Dr.

Because of my allergies and asthma, I was on Zyrtec, Advair, and had to carry an albuterol inhaler everywhere I went. I did the Atkin's diet some years ago and it worked extremely well for me. After seeing this book somewhere I decided to give it a try.

After reading this book I thought Dr. Atikin's had lost it this time. There are a lot of vitamins he wants you to take. Plus he started selling his own line of products so I thought "ahhh, that's why." I talked to my doctor about it and he said it wouldn't work, you would just be wasting money because your body will piss it all away (literally). I was spending $150 a month on medications (Zyrtec was not OTC at the time), the vitamins were about $20. His diet worked so well for me though so I thought I'd give it a try.

Well, I tried it, and it worked. I don't have as much trouble breathing, and I didn't need to take the medications anymore. Rarely I will have to use an albuterol inhaler. Placebo effect? Maybe, but I was saving $150 a month on medications even though I was "wasting" $20 on vitamins.

Like Dr. Murry's Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine, Dr. Atkins book acts as a reference resource beyong compare. Many of us yearn to take our health into our own hands. With comprehensive books such as this, we can learn more and consequently demand more from our health care professionals. These are not "non-cures". Nature can provide an abundance of what our bodies need. When we are ill, we just need them in a more concentrated form. Dr Atkins solutions have validity. One site I have found where we can find the types of vita-nutrients that Atkins recommends is Papanature. His prices, service, selection are the best I have found. His documentation of these products correspond with the same information proposed by Atkins.

This book surpasses all the books I own on herbs and vitamins. It also represents a life beyond being a prescription victim of the AMA. Again Dr. Atkins puts his tush on the line by giving people advice that is no where near conventional but puts the trust in the reader, his "patient" to try to heal themselves by natural and most often benign methods that bypass pharmaceutical side effects, toxic build up and cross interaction. He once again tries to change the staus quo with his off the beaten path knowledge and pays no mind to the flack he might receive in his efforts. This man believes in what he is doing and this book is a show-case of his whole medical stand point. I love it! A must for herbalist and vitamin-health gurus! A must for those with that want to take charge of their own health! Exhaustive and extensive about vitamins, the low-down on many products that the health industry over sells, and some you may never have heard of that could actually save your life! Dr. Atkins takes you on a very informed tour of the natural health product section, and teaches you a plethora of acquired knowlwdge.
