Book Description

March 6 2003
How to use amino acids to achieve optimum health and fight cancer, Alzheimer's disease, depression, heart-disease, and more.Amino acids have arrived-big time. News about amino acids is even the stuff of headlines and best sellers. Research and clinical use are booming worldwide. Aminos are becoming part of everyday life-helping people sleep, feel better, and overcome anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. They are in dietary sweeteners. They are part of new anti-aging compounds. They are used in emergency rooms for treatment of medication overdose and liver detoxification. And they are now gaining repute in blood tests, as powerful indicators of mental and physical illnesses.The two dozen amino acids present in the human body are now being shown to be among the most potent healing substances ever discovered. These constituents of protein are necessary to everyday life processes, but research and clinical work in the last two decades have revealed a vast range of therapeutic functions for amino acids, including phenylalanine's pain-relieving powers, tyrosine's energizing ability and addiction-fighting potential, methionine's role in Parkinson's disease treatment and as an antiallergen, and homocysteine's emergence as a new and precise marker of heart disease risk. This update and revision of the landmark book on amino acids covers the exciting discoveries of the last decade and shows how to use them in your personal health-management program.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amino healing power Jan. 15 2004
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The amino acids in the human body are proving to be potent healing substances. This book reveals the findings of research in the 1980s and 1990s on the beneficial role of the aminos in Alzheimer's, cancer, depression, heart conditions, stress and many other disease states.
The different amino acids are discussed in chapters according to type: Aromatic, Sulphur, Urea Cycle, Glutamate, Threonine and Branched Chain. Their food sources, nutrient interactions and proven benefits are given in detail.
The therapeutic functions of specific aminos include pain relief (Phenylalanine), fighting addiction (Tyrosine), treatment of Parkinson's (Methionine), heart protection (Homocysteine), herpes killer (Lysine). Many of them also play a part in immune stimulation or as anti-oxidants.
There are three appendices: 1. The Problems of Vegetarianism. 2. The Much Maligned Egg: The Best Amino Acid Food. 3. Continuing Breakthroughs in Amino Acids. This informative book with its good news concludes with an extensive bibliography, a glossary of terms and an index.
Everyone can benefit from the use of supplemental amino acids. This excellent book shows how to integrate them in one's own health management programme. Similar helpful books include The Amino Revolution by Erdmann and Amino Acids In Therapy by Chaitow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and extremely helpful July 17 2000
By Jimmy Gutman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
One of the best references on my shelf. Scientifically detailed but easily understood. When I have a query about an amino acid, I usually reach for this book first. If it doesn't have the precise answer I want, the reference lists contained in the book will lead me to find what I need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book. June 27 2001
By "petersonreviews" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Healing Nutrients Within is a must if you want to stay healthy. It's about proteins and amino acids. Amino acid deficiencies and inborn errors of amino acid metabolism are important causes of diseases, some of them deadly.
Problems with amino acids may cause mental or physical illnesses or both. So you should own this book if you want to have a sound mind in a sound body.
There is a separate chapter for each of the amino acids found in the human diet. And there are an amazing hundred-plus pages of scientific references.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review: The Healing Nutrients Within March 8 2008
By KSE - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is exactly what I was looking for. I needed information about each of the amino acids, what functions they are involved in, how they interrelate, and what illnesses they are connected with. This book is well-organized, highly readable, and extremely interesting. It was just the right mix of research information, along with dosage and uses.

This book has been very useful in helping me find supplements that are improving my medical issues.

3.0 out of 5 stars a basic text Feb. 16 2006
By Louise Shortus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
quite a bit of the research on which it is based is now dated, and some important aspects of nutrition have been completely ignored. It does however give a simple introduction to amino acids, and this is a complex topic, so that it is a good place to start
