FROM THE AUTHOR: Due to the possibility of bogus and spam reviews, see the Look Inside feature, this book's word-length, retail price, description (shown below) and Amazon's return policy. DESCRIPTION: Nutritional deficiencies have increased in frequency worldwide. Even the most industrialized countries in the world are seeing more cases of deficiency in vitamins, minerals, proteins, electrolytes and other essential elements in their populations. Some of these have reached near-epidemic proportions, even in the USA (i.e. Vitamin D Deficiency). In this book I address some of the more common types of deficiencies and the treatments that are administered to resolve them. Also included is a comprehensive list of essential nutrients and the symptoms that occur with deficiencies of these and the causes of them. NOTE: This book is approximately 7,281 words in length. It is t an extensive medical journal but rather contains aspects of information on the subject that most laypersons would be seeking. CONTENTS: CHAPTER ONE: Causes of Nutritional Deficiencies CHAPTER TWO: My Personal Experience with Vitamin Deficiencies CHAPTER THREE: The Vitamin-D Deficiency Epidemic CHAPTER FOUR: Pernicious Anemia - Vitamin B12 Deficiency CHAPTER FIVE: Other Symptoms and Types of Nutritional Deficiencies CHAPTER SIX: Diagstic Testing for Vitamin, Mineral and Electrolyte Imbalances ABOUT THE AUTHOR: (final paragraphs)
I am a husband, father, grandfather and lifetime contract salesman, with experience in health writing that began in 2004. I completed theological studies with Liberty University in 1996. I formerly served as editor and forum moderator of Thyroid Health for a major multi-topic content site and as a general health writer for another, where I received Editor's Choice Awards for articles on health subjects. In 2003 I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism; Hashimoto's thyroiditis being the cause. This autoimmune form of thyroid disease that causes destruction of the thyroid gland resulted in my also developing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, due to a compromised immune system with severe co-morbid Adrenal Fatigue. I also suffered severe anxiety symptoms, including panic attacks early into the onset of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (Hashitoxicosis - temporary hyperthyroidism). A common heart murmur I was diagnosed with in my teens called Mitral Valve Prolapse, also worsened in severity of symptoms, with the development of these other health disorders. My eventual receiving of diagnoses was a difficult process with proper diagnostic testing not being ordered by the first doctors I sought treatment from. These types of issues were inspiration for me to become proactive in my own health care and to self-educate myself on these health disorders, which I have done extensively since 2003. I now enjoy sharing this information with other patients experiencing my same health disorders.
