Winner of multiple awards including AudioFile Best Voice in 2008, narrator Richard Allen performs with great credibility and sincerity as he describes Dr. William Walsh's science-based nutrient therapy system for people with mental disorders such as depression and schizophrenia. Dr. Walsh proposes that addressing the body's underlying biochemical imbalances is more effective than treating symptoms with psychiatric drugs, and he emphasizes the necessity of investigating the causal factors for each individual. Allen's resonant voice underscores the significance of Dr. Walsh's aim to achieve true normalization of the brain.
Psychiatry has made great advances in the past 50 years but needs a new direction. Today's emphasis on psychiatric drugs will not stand the test of time. Recent advances in epigenetics and the molecular biology of the brain have provided a roadmap for the development of effective, natural, drug-free therapies that do not produce serious side effects. Psychiatric medications have served society well over the last 50 years, but the need for drug therapies will fade away as science advances.
Nutrient Power presents a science-based nutrient therapy system that can help millions of people diagnosed with mental disorders. This approach recognizes that nutrient imbalances can alter brain levels of key neurotransmitters, disrupt gene expression of proteins and enzymes, and cripple the body's protection against environmental toxins. The author's database containing millions of chemical factors in blood, urine, and tissues has identified brain-changing nutrient imbalances in patients diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, behavior disorders, depression, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's disease.
This book describes individualized nutrient therapy treatments that have produced thousands of reports of recovery. Walsh's approach is more scientific than the trial-and-error use of psychiatric drugs and is aimed at a true normalization of the brain. Depression, schizophrenia, and ADHD are umbrella terms that encompass disorders with widely differing brain chemistries and symptoms. Nutrient Power describes nutrient therapies tailored to specific types. Other book highlights include the Walsh Theory of Schizophrenia, a new way to look at autism, a promising new treatment for Alzheimer's, and recommendations for reducing crime and violence.

"This book saved my daughter."
This book not only shows the scientific evidence that psychiatric drugs only treat the problem, just the symptoms, but also explains how nutrients can really fix the problem, which problems are quickly to fix (like pyrroluria) and which are harder to fix (such as autism).
There are several small sample cases which describe real people who got cured. This makes me think my daughter could be listed there.
The narrator lacks in emotion, but yet the book is fascinating.
I had a bottle of anti-psychotic drug depakote in my hands, prescribed for my 2 year old girl. But because of this book I got the direction to cure her, read other books, and despite the lack of resources on the subject (I live in Brazil), I did it successfully. Nutrients did not just cure her mind and behavior, but her health also. Before, she had been admitted to hospital several times, including being in intensive care unit 3 times, but after nutrient therapy that has never happened anymore. She is now a very happy 4 year old girl, and I never opened the depakote bottle.
"Not for Novices"
The content of this book is great, but it is very technical at times. If you are not familiar with medical and scientific terminology, this book might be a little difficult for you to listen to.
The reader takes a while to get used to as his voice is monotone. After an hour, you get used to it though.
I would recommend this book for those interested in improving the health and quality of their own life and the lives of loved ones.
"Tons of Information"
This is one I will have to listen to again. Great information. I should have been taking notes.
