About the Author
Born on a Saskatchewan farm in 1917, Abram Hoffer graduated with a B.S. in agriculture from the University of Saskatchewan in 1938. He also has a Master's Degree in agricultural chemistry and a Ph.D. in biochemistry. He got his M.D. from the University of Toronto in 1949 and completed psychiatric training in 1954. His early work led to the use of vitamin B3 in treating schizophrenia and other psychiatric conditions and he demonstrated the effectiveness of niacin as an anticholesterol treatment. Dr. Hoffer was involved in the formation of the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine and has published over 600 reports and articles as well as 30 books. Recently, he was awarded the Dr. Rogers Prize for his contribution to alternative and complimentary medicine.

Now, I've just purchased three more, on the same subject, from A. Hoffer and/or A. Saul.
Both authors enriched substantially my knowledge on Orthomolecular Medicine
- which I usually use to prescribe to my patients with unmistakable results
and enthusiastically recommend to my colleagues.
OBS.: Some vitamins are available on more than one chemical structure - with different clinical characteristics.
For instance, B3 as niacin or niacinamide; or C as ascorbic acid, calcium, sodium or zinc ascorbate aso
- each of them bringing different (slight or important) outcomes and/or side effects.
That's why I'd prefer the authors to be as specific as possible, and, when no specific form is required, to mention that!
More: Somewhere I read that intravenous C should never be the acid version.
Yet, at Intravenous Vitamin C as Chemotherapy subtitle, I saw specifically ascorbic acid mentioned...
OBS.: I usually read, study, consult and re-read orthomolecular books. Hard-cover ones last long. Yet, flexible-cover books become almost destroyed in a short time. Why not make them with folded 'ears'?
These two incredible and admired nutritional mavericks will teach you the facinating truths about the strong connection between REAL HEALTH and Orthomolecular Medicine. We are not made of prescription drugs, our bodies are built on sound nutrition and by following the advise of these two BRILLIANT doctor/scientists you will live a long and healthy life with out the need for most prescription based medicine. Not all drugs are bad and some are very helpful and necessary but I strongly believe that individuals should try this orthomolecular approach first to strengthen the immune system, feel incredible and let your body do what it does best......Heal!!
It is unfathomable that this kind of approach is not taught in medical school due to the fact that nutritional substances are not PATENTABLE and offer zero profits to the greedy pharmaceutical companies! When you read that they are looking for a cure for cancer etc. Remember they, the drug companies, are looking for a PATENTABLE CURE and have zero interest in what really works.....nutrition based ORTHOMOLECULAR MEDICINE...custom tailored to each persons individual requirements....you will be SURPRISED at the HUGE variation of vitamin requirements from person to person!
I'd like to add: I'm so very happy that Vitamin therapy books and tv personalities like Dr Oz are bringing to light more awareness to the dumbed-down American public. We've been duped too long. It's time to wake up and join the Revolution. Get an extra copy for your loved ones.
