Believing that drugs and
psychoanalysis were not always the best course of treatment for
a variety of mental illnesses, Dr. Carl Pfeiffer began an extensive
program of research into the causes and treatment of mental illness
In 1973 he opened the
Brain Bio Center in Princeton, New Jersey. Here, with a team
of scientists, he found that many psychological problems can
be traced to biochemical imbalances in the body. With these patients,
he achieved unprecedented success in treating a wide range of
mental problems by adjusting diet and providing specific nutritional
supplements for those conditions where deficiences exist. This
book documents his approach.
Each year, thousands of
people are diagnosed as schizophrenic; many more suffer from
depression, anxiety, and phobias.
Dr. Pfeiffer's methods
of treatment presented in Nutrition and Mental Illness
are a valuable adjunct to traditional therapies, and can bring
hope of real wellness to many of those who suffer.
