This is the most exciting book that I wish were in the hands of every patient and family whose loved one suffers from imbalance of nutrients that affect the brain. It shows that tiny amounts of nutrients can impact everything in a persons life. A person who might otherwise be a high histamine go getter MD might instead be getting sentenced to prison becuase they have pyrrole disorder where the body can't rid itself of copper. When did we ever hear of doctors testing for metal levels to help people with emotional problems? This is so far reaching and at this point so little known that we need to do all we can to tell the world about it. So glad for the doctors who are working so bravely in this area. So sad for the docs who like one whose office I sat in said "that won't do anything" pointing at the book...and later saying my loved one should take vitamins. Duh, buddy. The book is already helping. I pray the light gets shown in all the dark crevices of the world of mental health! This book screams HOPE to those in the abyss of the mental health system.
This book is a condensed description of Dr. William Walsh’s 30 years research in the field of nutrient therapy to treat mental disorders. The science-based medical approach developed by this scientist is called "biomedical therapy" or "nutrient therapy." Dr. Walsh created non-profits in order to be able to conduct research about the role of vitamins, mineral, and amino acids in mental disorders. He has presented his research to the American Psychiatric Association. The treatment can be done parallel to the regular psychiatric treatment, if the patient is taking neuroleptics or any psychiatric medication. Dr. Walsh recognizes the importance of methylation processes and epigenetics in brain disorders.
The nutrient therapy treatment aims at regulating the synthesis of neurotransmitters using natural chemistry, without producing the negative side effects that the psychiatric drugs generate. The book is written in a simple language, so that, a layperson like me, can understand some basic chemical processes that occur in the human body/brain. The author explains the neurotransmitter’s life cycle and synthesis such as norepinephrine, serotonin, dopamine, and gaba.
There are chapters on epigenetics, schizophrenia, depression, autism, behavior disorders, Alzheiner’s, and about the clinical process used in the treatment. What I think is great is that they use blood, urine, and sometimes hair tests to diagnose the chemical imbalance of each patient. The treatment is designed specifically for each person, according with the patient’s biochemistry results. The author states that deviant epigenetic marks that cause brain chemistry imbalances are likely to be reversible.
Examining the biochemistry of 30,000 patients diagnosed with mental disorders, the researcher discovered the incidence of methylation disorders. He correlated the DSM diagnosis with the level of methylation he found in the mental disorder patients he studied. Some biotypes tend to be more overmethylated, while others tend to be more undermethylated. Dr. Walsh has great insights into the treatment of behavior disorders. This book is great, and it will revolutionize the psychiatric treatment. Mental health professionals need to realize that there are effective treatments that do not have the terrible side effects that psychiatric drugs do. Medical professionals should learn about these treatments.
“Nutrient Power” is a blessing in my family’s life. I wish I had known about this treatment before. Dr. William Walsh is a wonderful man, who has been dedicating his career to the development of a protocol for patients with behavior disorders. One great difference between nutrient therapy and the regular laboratory created drug treatment is that the nutrient treatment uses natural body chemicals to restore the person to a normal state.
I have been watching videos of Dr. Walsh’s presentations and interviews about his theory and treatment. I also read some of the articles on the non-profit he created, Walsh Research Institute. If it were possible I would give more than five stars to this book and to this great scientist.
