By Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD
It is well documented that nutrient deficiencies and environmental toxins contribute to the emergence of psychiatric disorders. Ignoring this reality means relinquishing the chance to make the lives of people with schizophrenia better. Conventional treatments for schizophrenia are often of limited efficacy and may make things worse. Many patients and caregivers wnat more than just medications; they want to understand why things are the way they are.
Light on Schizophrenia illuminates causes and contributions to schizophrenia from a functional medicine perspective, and offers evidence-based solutions that can help patients achieve meaningful recovery.
This book is an update to Dr. Abram Hoffer’s 2007 book, Orthomolecular Treatment for Schizophrenia and Other Mental Illnesses: A Guide for Practitioners. It contains Dr. Hoffer’s chronicles of his 57 years of experience and success in treating schizophrenia patients; it also integrates current knowledge on the causes and moderators of schizophrenia. Light on Schizophrenia contains valuable new contributions from James Greenblatt, MD, and Jonathan Prousky, ND. Both doctors have decades of clinical experience working with patients with schizophrenia and other mental illnesses.
