Orthomolecular Treatment of Schizophrenia: Key Bibliographies

Some studies by practitioners discussed in: Research and clinical data supporting the therapeutic use of nutrients for schizophrenia (March 22, 2010 post), which see.

Bibliography from the work of Dr. Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD,  Father of Orthomolecular Psychiatry.

Bibliography from Dr. Carl C. Pfeiffer, MD, PhD, the major force behind the schizophrenia biotypes.

Bibliography from Dr. William J. Walsh, PhD, who expanded the use of biotype treatments to other mental disorders.


  1. If we're not sure the diagnosis is sz or bipolar w/psychotic episodes, which book is best to purchase?

  2. If a person is concerned with bipolar, Natural Healing for Bipolar Disorder is the book to get.
    Mood episodes with accompanying psychosis are relatively common, and part of the illness.
    The focus of the schizophrenia book is psychosis: voices, etc. It does not have much on depression, nothing on mania, and only a half page on bipolar itself.
