Light on Schizophrenia: Revealing Causes and Solutions From an Orthomolecular Perspective Paperback

Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD
With contributions from: James Greenblatt, MD; Jonathan Prousky, MSC, ND; Paul Demeda, CNP

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.

This is the only book to provide a comprehensive look at the Orthomolecular approach to schizophrenia.
