Chris M. Reading, M.D.
ISBN 978-1-890995-73-7 (96 pp.)
In this major collection of articles, Dr. Chris Reading confirms his pre-eminence in the field of orthomolecular medicine. Ranging from topics such as the biochemistry of mental illness, to cancer, to ways to protect against Alzheimer’s Disease, these writings are not only the presentation of brilliant and original research, but encourage us to understand illness in a broader and more humanistic way. This is a remarkable book by one of the most original voices in holistic medicine today.
Dr. Chris M. Reading (1938-2011) specialized in organic psychiatry, subsequently becoming interested in research into vitamin and mineral deficiencies, metabolic disorders, food allergies and clinical immunology/ecology, and genetics as it applies to neuropsychiatric disorders. A leading authority on orthomolecular medicine, his book Trace Your Genes to Health was published by Vital Health Publishing in 2002 to wide acclaim. In recognition of Dr. Reading’s many outstanding contributions to his field, he was inducted into the Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame in 2012.
