About the book
What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Nutritional Medicine May Be Killing You is a book that explains to its readers how antioxidants can help them lead a healthier and disease-free life, when compared to drugs that are recommended widely by doctors.
Dr. Ray Strand, a general practitioner, was trying to find ways to help his wife, who suffered from chronic fatigue and pain. When nothing seemed to help, someone in his circle suggested a nutritional therapy. He tried it, and to his surprise, it worked.
Inspired by this surprising event, he decided to study alternate healing methods, particularly nutritional therapy. In the book, he explains to his readers what oxidative stress is, and how it can bring about many health-related problems. The book provides insights into how the body can activate its own healing powers, with the help of the right nutrients that it needs, like vitamins, minerals, proteins, fatty acids, and other vital nutrients.

Chapters in the book include Cellular Nutrition, Oxidative Stress and Your Eyes, Homocysteine: New Kid on the Block, and other topics that deal with diseases and their causes.
People who suffer from diseases like diabetes, heart problems, auto-immune diseases, cancer, and other disorders might find the information in this book enlightening and extremely helpful.
Dr.Strand's basic message is pretty simple, as he states that helping one's body take care of itself without burdening it with numerous drugs is the right path to good health.
