Ray D. Strand, M.D., graduated from the University of Colorado Medical School and finished his post-graduate training at Mercy Hospital in San Diego, California. He has been involved in an active private family practice for the past thirty years, and has focused his practice on nutritional medicine over the past seven years while lecturing internationally on the subject. Dr. Strand lives on a horse ranch in South Dakota with his lovely wife, Elizabeth. They have three grown children.From Publishers Weekly:
South Dakota-based Strand, a general practitioner for nearly a quarter century, turned his attention to nutrition in the mid-90s when traditional medical approaches failed to help his wife's chronic fatigue. In his authorial debut, Strand preaches vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and other nutritional supplements with the zeal of a new convert. His opponents are formidable: the government, food suppliers and the medical establishment who, Strand says, disregard evidence that the RDA recommendations are inadequate to supply us with the weapons to fight chronic diseases. Chapters cover "Oxidative Stress and Your Eyes," "Cellular Nutrition" and "Homocysteine: New Kid on the Block," among other ailments and panaceas. Despite the alarmist title, those who suffer from or are at risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer, auto-immune disorders and lung disease may want to weigh the evidence for themselves; Stand's book is designed to provide an alternative perspective that aids in doing so, though it also includes various supplemental regimens he has devised. His message, after all, is fundamentally a simple one: let's protect and care for our bodies, Strand says, and "may we all live until we die."
