How to Read a 21st Century Hair Analysis
Dr Igor Tabrizian M.D.
RRP $75

Dr Tabrizian's book presents the reader with a logical description of cause and effect of nutrient surfeit and deficit and how these imbalances can be determined and treated following HTMA. The use of diagrams to elaborate and clarify the facts surrounding diagnosis and treatment is to be warmly applauded as in major part it demystifies the often complex biochemical processes behind the overt signs of distress that trace element and nutrient imbalance can create and allows the layman to understand details of the biochemistry that would otherwise possibly be beyond them. The text follows the route of trace elements and nutrients through the body and shows how they are, or are not, assimilated to cause clinical effects in a way that is understandable to the layman and at level appropriate for the medical practitioner, clinician and nutritionist alike.

Nutrition: The Good, The Bad and the Politics

Nutrition: The Good, The Bad and The Politics
Dr Igor Tabrizian M.D.
RRP $27.50 - New Hardcover edition at the same price

Completely revised, updated, indexed and in full-colour with extensive references.

Revised and updated, Nutrition:The Good, The Bad and The Politics is a fascinating and accessible book for anyone wishing to explore Nutritional Medicine to benefit their own health.

Subjects covered are trace elements, toxic elements and coenzyme Q10.  Many diseases are also covered, namely: cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, depression and ADD.  Perhaps most interesting of all is the politics of natural medicines today.

Expertly illustrated and extensively referenced this book captures the knowledge and spirit of Nutritional Medicine today, with humour to match the breadth of the subject matter.  This book is informative and entertaining.

Overall perhaps the best description of this text is cheekily insightful.

Degenerative Diseases of the Brain

Degenerative Diseases of the Brain
Dr Igor Tabrizian M.D.
RRP $25

Degenerative Diseases of the Brain explores the nutritional aspects of normal brain function as well as the current models of neurodegenerative disorders. Dr Tabrizian aims to progressively understand and explain the biochemistry of the brain to prevent crippling disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis. This text unpacks the puzzle of the brain and central nervous system and offers solutions to tackle the problem of degenerative disorders. Based on detailed and thoroughly researched data, nutritional interventions may be used to halt the progression of, and possibly even reverse, the disease process.

Brain Foods, Brain Poisons: Autism as a Case in Point
Dr Igor Tabrizian M.D.
RRP $28

This book is a presentation of Dr Igor Tabrizian lecture on Autism to a well-informed Sydney audience in November 2004, . The attendees gained insight into how clinical nutritionists examine the mechanisms and formulate treatment schedules for Autism. The lecture was again complemented by his “killer” graphics which made the difficult concepts simple.

Examining the roles of important nutrients like zinc, copper, amina acids, vitamin B6 and vitamin C, in normal human development, the lecture looked at normal brain function with regard to nutritional needs of the mother and the child. It examined the importance of tissue co-operation such as hormones, gut and brain in ensuring correct development of all the tissues in the growing child. It examined the role of tests such as hair analysis in the correction of problems like Autism.

But in particular the lecture looked at where brain function goes wrong in Autism and more importantly why this is happening as a global epidemic. It examined the roles of genetics and antioxidants in the prevention and treatment of Autism and looked at the roles of toxic metals in the genesis of the disease and how these generate the symptoms of Autism.

Visual Textbook Of  Nutritional Medicine

Visual Textbook of Nutritional Medicine
Dr Igor Tabrizian M.D.
New Hardcover Edition
RRP $75

Completely revised, updated, indexed and in full-colour with extensive references.

The Visual Textbook of Nutritional Medicine is a well illustrated and expertly presented text by Dr Igor Tabrizian, whose talents in lateral thinking and concept simplification have made him a leader in Nutritional Medicine courses. After a long journey through the annals of Nutritional Medicine, Dr Tabrizian successfully simplifies a vast amount of data into bite-sized digestible pieces.  Dr Tabrizian explores scientific research that could be classed as peripheral to modern medicine; quantum physics, metallotoxicology, veterinary medicine, horticulture and environmental politics.  Each of these disciplines provide vital clues in his search for a Unified Theory of Medicine which he terms Cation Dysfunction Theory (CDT). Using CDT he developed a molecular approach to solving common problems in General Practice, which Dr Tabrizian teaches at his seminars and also in his apprenticeship scheme for Medical Practitioners.

Dr Tabrizian uses clinical and personal research.  Graphics simplify difficult concepts from his Practitioner's Compendium lecture series (provided only to those in his apprenticeship scheme). This book is a 'must have' for any student of Nutritional Medicine. The astute reader will determine that politics plays a crucial role in questions of a medical nature.

The Naturopathic College of New Zealand recommends this fabulous book to students because it (very importantly) provides them with information that is easy to understand.  Tabrizian takes the confusion out of the in-depth nutritional processes explained, and lays it out easily.  This book allows the visual learner to embrace biochemical concepts, and covers many important aspects of nutritional therapy. It is a book that both practitioners and students will continue to refer to throughout their career due to the wealth of information within the pages.
