Long a champion of complementary medicine and nutritional therapy, Dr. Robert Atkins presents the scientific basis of the use of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs, and hormones in the treatment and prevention of most of the chronic illnesses that plague us today. Here, for the first time, he makes this information available outside of his practice, with vital information on more than 120 supplements, most of them available in the UK. Best of all, Dr. Atkins shows consumers how to create a personalised programme to help them regain or improve their health by using special combinations of nutritional supplements specifically designed to help, cure, or prevent many of the more common medical conditions. These vita-nutrients harness the body's ability to heal itself, rather than resorting to conventional drugs and invasive procedures, and address the true cause of disease instead of temporarily alleviating symptoms, promoting longer-lasting and more effective healing.
Robert C. Atkins, MD, is the founder and director of the Atkins Centre for Complementary Medicine.
