I have been a follower of his advice since the early 1980s and have never been steered wrong. Many of the top quality nutrition supplement company's based their formulas on Mindell's recommendations. Such as the Great Earth Vitamins, which typically the upper income people purchase.
That said, I have a deep appreciation for the comprehensiveness of the book. It lists the vitamin or mineral form that is most usable by the body--as well as its food sources.
Why not take iron with calcium? Why should thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2) and B6 be taken in equal quantities? This is stuff your doctors just don't have time to tell you. It isn't their expertise.
The cautions and cross reference with interactions bring to my attention what prescribers might need to be involved in my choices, which is really all of my team of physicians.
I have eczema and have always been told it is related to stress. It is. I've observed that first hand. There are 11 references to eczema and underlying causes, other than stress.
Cravings? Covered to a degree. Vegetarian or vegan, got you covered. There is a symptom checker portion, a glossary and an index.
I'm keeping this book forever--or until the next version comes out. And no, it's not in my lending library. *grin* While this is not the Physician's Desk Reference, it certainly doesn't need to be and is more portable! (The price is right, too.)
