By Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD
It is well documented that nutrient deficiencies, nutrient dependencies, and environmental toxins such as heavy metals, contribute to the pathogenesis of mental health disorders. Ignoring this reality means missing out on the opportunity to make the lives of people with schizophrenia better.
Conventional treatments for schizophrenia may not help or may even make things worse. Many patients and caregivers want more than just medications. They want to understand WHY things are the way they are.
Light on Schizophrenia clearly lays out the causes and contributors to schizophrenia from the Orthomolecular perspective, and it offers solutions. “Orthomolecular” refers to the roles of vitamins, minerals and other essential molecules in the body.
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.
The International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine (ISOM) is a Registered Charitable Organization based in Canada. The purpose of the Society is to further the advancement of orthomolecular medicine throughout the world, to raise awareness of this rapidly growing and cost effective practice of health care, and to unite the groups already operating in this field. The Society held its inaugural meeting April 29, 1994 in Vancouver, Canada. Learn more at www.isom.ca.
