Orthomolecular Nutrition for Everyone: Megavitamins and Your Best Health Ever by Helen Saul Case

Orthomolecular nutrition prevents and cures disease. This fact has been ignored by our current health care system, the media, and the medical literature. Why doesn’t your doctor use nutritional therapy? Is it for lack of safety? Because it’s not effective? Because it’s expensive? It happens to be none of these. Despite what you have been told, nutritional medicine is safe and effective. It is remarkably inexpensive especially when compared to the incredibly high cost of modern medicine. The evidence from nearly 80 years of research by orthomolecular physicians proves it: nutritional therapy works.

Most vitamin research you hear about focuses on low, and therefore, inadequate doses of vitamins. Low doses do not get clinical results. High-dose vitamin therapy does; it has for decades. But which vitamins should we take? How much? Is taking all those vitamins safe? This book addresses common questions about supplementation including dosing, safety, and just what all those extra vitamins do for you. It also covers what to eat and why, the real story about exercise and good heath, why we shouldn’t fear germs, and how each and every vitamin can get you better now and keep you well in the future.
