This book is specifically written for healthcare professionals as a guide to the orthomolecular diagnosis and safe, natural treatments of anxiety disorders. While examining the vast amount of orthomolecular medicine, Dr Jonathan Prousky has synthesized old and new information on anxiety disorders into this one volume.
He discusses the medical evaluation and treatment of anxiety disorders while guiding the reader through the orthomolecular approach. Some of the orthomolecular diagnoses featured include nutrient deficiencies and dependencies, cerebral allergies, and hypoglycemia.
Also featured are full descriptions of the many orthomolecular treatment strategies available that can significantly ameliorate anxiety. Some of these treatments are niacinamide (nicotinamide), vitamin B-12, other B vitamins, inositol, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids. Case descriptions, prescribing information, and side effects for each of the orthomolecular treatments are also included.
This comprehensive guide is an essential reference for general practitioners, psychiatrists, naturopathic doctors, and all healthcare providers interested in a natural safe, and effective approach to anxiety disorders.
