Item description for What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Nutritional Medicine May Be Killing You by Ray D. Strand...

Overview
The impact of nutritional medicine has had a dramatic and controversial--but documented--impact on the lives of Dr.Strand's patients and can now change readers' lives too. When Dr. Ray Strand found himself in a losing battle, unable to successfully treat his wife who had suffered chronically with pain and fatigue, he agreed to try the regimen of nutritional supplements that a neighbor suggested. Much to his surprise, his wife's condition began to improve almost immediately. That amazing turn of events led him to dedicate himself to researching alternative therapies in medicine, particularly in the arena of nutritional supplements. Dr. Strand's illumination of the body's silent enemy-oxidative stress-will astound you. But, more importantly, his research will equip you to protect or reclaim your nutritional health, possibly reversing disease and preventing illness.

Reviews - What do customers think about What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Nutritional Medicine May Be Killing You?

True Preventive Medicine  Jun 1, 2008
Dr Strand begins his most enlightening book by telling us about his wife's debilitating condition, diagnosed as fibromyalgia. In a situation whereby they had nothing to lose, Mrs Strand took some vitamin supplements and her condition gradually but almost miraculously improved.

Virtually overnight, Dr Strand became a "converted doctor". It's certainly not very scientific for a doctor to make such conclusions based on anecdotal evidence, but Dr Strand goes on to identify and explain the root cause of many serious ailments from heart disease to cancer as "oxidative stress".

He describes our bodies as "rusting away" from metabolic activities that consume oxygen and release harmful free radicals. He provides a simple answer on how to win the battle from within - reduce oxidative stress by increasing the amount of antioxidants in the body.

Why is the significance of homocysteine in patients prone to heart attacks and strokes discovered so late? Why don't doctors recommend Coenzyme Q10 as a supplement to reduce the risk of heart attack? Why are vitamin B supplements ignored while cholesterol lowering drugs drugs are prescribed with such enthusiasm? Dr Strand goes into the politics and economics of medical research which may make him some enemies in the fraternity.

Whether it's cardiomyopathy, cancer prevention, arthritis or autoimmune disorders, Dr Strand's advice seems focussed on optimal doses (higher than RDA doses) of various vitamins, minerals, glutathione, alpha-lipoic acid and supplements like glucosamine sulphate and grape seed extract. Dr Strand provides lots of anecdotal evidence on how these supplements can work for a wide range of illnesses. It does look like vitamin C and E are good for almost every condition. His attacks on money-driven physicians get tiring after a while. I personally think that he didn't have to explain why most doctors don't want to recommend cheap supplements that reduce the number of indications for heart or orthopaedic surgery.

Do I believe in Dr Strand's theories? Well, as far as the need for optimal levels of vitamins, minerals and even herbal supplements is concerned, I agree. Whether remarkable recoveries recounted from the good doctor's practice are typical is something for which I have my reservations.

Nevertheless, it should be noted that the wellness industry is already booming even before Dr Strand wrote this book. Expensive vitamins, nutritional supplements and other healthcare and wellness products are all over the pharmacies and even supermarkets, often promoted by aggressive sales people with limited medical knowledge. I wouldn't say that these folks are more concerned about their potential customers' health than doctors who discourage their patients from spending so much on supplements that don't really work for their condition.

This was estimated to be arriving on 31st July 2007 and it is still not arrived so it is very hard to rate a book purchased, paid for and not delivered!!!

Dr Strand's Confessions  May 16, 2007
This book rolls back some of the falacious defensiveness of traditional medical thinking and shows the existing bias against nutritional medicine.

Dr Strand is blunt and forthright about his findings and is careful to give credit to the treatments that were effective, and to identify those that were not. He does not decry pharmaceuticals nor does he promise nutritionals as the end of all cures. Instead, he advocates the use of them in combination when possible. His writing does reveal a competition between pharmaceutically trained physicians and those who dispense and recommend nutritionals.

His case studies are excellent, and he retains a sense of reality and knowledgable insight afforded him by his traditional medical training that has now been tempered by his own experience.

If you want the truth on nutritional medicine, which is sorely lacking in our medical schools who are in some ways subsidized by big pharma, this will please you...and perhaps even make you more healthy.
 
Awesome read  May 13, 2007
Dr. Strand is absolutely amazing! This book is informative, it will blow your mind. I recommend this to anyone who has ever been to the doctor!
 
What Your Doctor Does'nt Know About Nutrition Medicine May Be Killing YOU.   Mar 13, 2007
This book is informative. Makes sense out of everyday occurences in the body and we learn how to help the body work and survive to health. I am sold on taking food supplements for every age. We just can't get all of the nutrients we need by good food alone. Well worth your time in reading.
