As author of the widely popular Nutritional Medicine textbook, Dr. Alan Gaby has dedicated his career to investigating the interplay between nutrition and health outcomes. In this 2-hour lecture, he presents compelling research and clinical pearls surrounding the role of common foods in disease management, the efficacy and safety of strict dietary changes with chronically ill patients, and the use of other nutritional interventions–such as probiotics, vitamin supplementation, single amino acids, and potent antioxidants–with a multitude of health conditions.
