Share Article

Scientifically-based guide demonstrates how diet, nutritional supplements, and other natural substances can improve health, treat 400 illnesses, and reduce the cost of health care.

Dr. Gaby has done a great favor to the next generation of doctors and patients by collating important nutritional research from the past 100 years into this valuable and informative textbook.

Dr. Alan R. Gaby, renowned expert on nutritional therapy, will publish a new textbook, Nutritional Medicine, on November 1st, 2010. The textbook presents a comprehensive review of the use of dietary modifications, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other natural substances to prevent and treat disease. Nutritional Medicine is the only textbook of its kind to provide scientifically reliable and clinically relevant information on the use of diet and nutritional supplements as a primary treatment modality.

Nutritional therapy is effective for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, migraines, asthma, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, fatigue, depression, anxiety, insomnia, eczema, dry eyes, canker sores, premenstrual syndrome, and viral infections. For many of these conditions, the results of conventional treatment are frequently unsatisfactory. Widespread application of the low-cost, low-risk treatment options described in Nutritional Medicine would improve health, decrease the need for potentially toxic medications, and reduce the cost of healthcare.

The textbook is written for healthcare practitioners, but is also useful for non-practitioners interested in learning about nutritional options for treating various health concerns. Priced at $295.00, orders are being taken online at or by calling 603-225-0134.

Alan R. Gaby, M.D., is widely recognized as a leading authority in the field of nutritional medicine. The information provided in his textbook is the result of more than 30 years of research, study, and clinical experience, including a detailed review and analysis of over 35,000 research studies of which 15,000 are cited in his book. What distinguishes Nutritional Medicine from other books on nutrition is that it presents a credible and balanced approach and cuts through errors and misinterpretations that have been made by both proponents and opponents of nutritional therapy.

Nutritional Medicine contains 1,374 pages and 342 chapters. There are 61 chapters on individual vitamins, minerals, amino acids, hormones, and other therapeutic agents; and additional chapters that discuss the nutritional treatment of more than 400 specific health conditions. Information is provided about dosages, adverse effects, drug-nutrient interactions, and nutrient-nutrient interactions. This expert guide is a valuable resource for medical doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors, pharmacists, dietitians, nutritionists, and individuals seeking alternative approaches to conventional medical treatments.

"It has taken practitioners of an older generation many years of experimentation, seminars, books, and articles to figure out how to practice nutritional medicine,” said Bill Manahan, M.D., Assistant Professor Emeritus at the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Minnesota Academic Health Center. “Now younger practitioners can be spared this prolonged and haphazard course of learning. Dr. Gaby has done a great favor to the next generation of doctors and patients by collating important nutritional research from the past 100 years into this valuable and informative textbook. Because he has made this information so readable and useable, I recommend that Nutritional Medicine be on the desk of every healthcare practitioner."
