PREVENTION OF THE DISEASE OF AGING: Prevention and Treatment of Disease with Vitamins, Minerals, and Amino Acids This book is Part I of a series which discusses how vitamins, minerals, and amino acids improve health and prevent disease. This book discusses very common diseases which are at epidemic proportions including heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, anxiety, osteoporosis, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, macular degeneration, attention deficit disorder, insomnia, menopausal symptoms, acne, and hypothyroidism. Dr. Blanchette documents the serious risks of prescription drugs and offers the natural ways to treat disease with vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Medical physicians are not trained to treat disease naturally. Drug companies do not want you to know that vitamins, minerals, and amino acids can prevent and cure disease. This book documents research studies which show how these nutrients can prevent and treat disease without the need for prescription drugs and endless doctor visits. This book outlines common diseases of aging and Dr. Blanchette discusses specific treatment plans for these particular diseases.
