Quotes for your life: (bolds added by Dr. Z)
"It is my belief that the condition of relative
hypoglycemia is one of the most common causes
of neuropsychiatric illness, and I should like to
propose that it has been caused by changes in
human dietary habits....
1. Relative hypoglycemia is considered as an important cause of neuropsychiatric illness.
2. Every patient with neuropsychiatric illness
should have a six-hour glucose tolerance test, particularly those whom we have been prone to diagnose as having psychoneurotic anxiety states or
3. The six-hour glucose tolerance test should
be interpreted as positive if there is a blood sugar
drop of 20 mgm.%, or more, below the fasting
blood sugar level; or if the drop is from 10 to 20 mgm.% below the fasting blood sugar level, potential relative hypoglycemia should be considered.
4. A corrective diet high in protein, low in
carbohydrate, and free of caffeine will effect recovery
in approximately 85 per cent of the patients.
5. By making the diagnosis of relative hypoglycemia
and teaching patients what they should
eat, they will be spared years of suffering, electroshock therapy, and the hazards inherent in taking sedatives, stimulants, and tranquilizers.

I get letters (bolds added by Dr. Z)
I get so many questions from desperate people all over North America - and sometimes the world - who have many "bizarre and unexplained" symptoms and who need help.
A couple of weeks ago I received this e-mail from a distraught mother:
"I am actually writing this to help my 18 year old daughter.
She is currently hospitalized for suicidal thoughts, panic attacks, anxiety, acute psychosis, and depression.
She became a vegetarian and then a raw vegan in the past few months and that is when everything escalated. She rarely got protein and would eat a lot of fruits and skip meals.
I feel it is due to hypoglycemia as well as stress that has led to her mental illness.
Can you give us some direction on who we should take her to after she is discharged so she can heal?
Thank you so much,
