Doctors get NO training about nutritional treatments in medical school, and almost NO training about nutrition notes Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD.
Instead, they are taught to use drugs, drugs and more drugs.
I will play an audio clip from a 2005 speech by Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD where he says that he has had 40 fourth-year medical students come to see him to learn about the nutritional therapy he discovered 50 years ago which cures schizophrenia in a majority of cases.
( Yes, really. The treatment involves using large doses of niacin plus other nutrients. )
When he asked them how much training about nutrition had they received in medical school, they said they only had a one (1) hour lecture on nutrition in medical school.
A total of one hour.
So what do most doctors do throughout their entire career?
Give drugs and more drugs and more drugs!
Because that is what they were taught to do in medical school!
Many doctors also believe nutritional therapies must not be effective because they did not learn about them in medical school.
In other words, “If I don’t know about it, it must not be important.”
So if your doctor tells you that nutritional therapies are nonsense realize that they are not speaking out of knowledge, but rather they are saying this out of ignorance.
