This book tells the story of the rebirth of nutritional medicine, following the life of Dr. Abram Hoffer from his childhood on a farm in Saskatchewan, subsequent training in biochemistry and agricultural science, to his specialization in psychiatry, professorship at the University of Saskatchewan, and his daily work with mentally ill patients. It tells of his disillusionment with psychiatry and its methods of treating the mentally ill, and follows his dramatic case histories as he uncovers the connection between deficiencies in specific vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids and mental illness. In addition, it details experiences with the many colleagues who helped further the science of orthomolecular medicine including long-standing friend, two-time Nobel Laureate, Linus Pauling.
