Psychiatryhas made great advances in the past fifty years but needs a new direction.Today's emphasis on psychiatric drugs will not stand the test of time. Recentadvances in epigenetics and the molecular biology of the brain have provided aroadmap for the development of effective, natural, drug-free therapies that donot produce serious side effects. Psychiatric medications have served societywell over the last fifty years, but the need for drug therapies will fade awayas science advances.
Nutrient Powerpresents a science-based nutrient therapy system that can help millions ofpeople diagnosed with mental disorders. This approach recognizes that nutrientimbalances can alter brain levels of key neurotransmitters, disrupt geneexpression of proteins and enzymes, and cripple the body's protection againstenvironmental toxins. The author's database containing millions of chemicalfactors in blood, urine, and tissues has identified brain-changing nutrientimbalances in patients diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder(ADHD), autism, behavior disorders, depression, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer'sdisease. This book describes individualized nutrient therapy treatments thathave produced thousands of reports of recovery. Walsh's approach is morescientific than the trial-and-error use of psychiatric drugs and is aimed at atrue normalization of the brain.
Depression,schizophrenia, and ADHD are umbrella terms that encompass disorders with widelydiffering brain chemistries and symptoms. NutrientPower describes nutrient therapies tailored to specific types. Other bookhighlights include the Walsh Theory of Schizophrenia, a new way to look atautism, a promising new treatment for Alzheimer's, and recommendations forreducing crime and violence.
This could be an elegantly simple solution to dysregulation of the extremely complex chemistry. --Publishers Weekly
