More About the Author

Patrick Holford BSc, DipION, FBANT, CHNC pioneers new approaches to health and nutrition. He is the founder of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London (Europe's leading training centre for nutritional therapists), is Chief Executive of the Food for the Brain Foundation and the author of over 30 books.

He is widely regarded as Britain's best-selling author and leading spokesman on nutrition and mental health issues, hence being frequently quoted in national newspapers from the Daily Mail to the Guardian. Patrick is also popular on radio shows and national television as a presenter, interviewer and guest.

Patrick started his academic career in the field of psychology. While completing his bachelor degree in Experimental Psychology at the University of York, he researched the role of nutrition in mental health and illness. He became a student of the late Dr Carl Pfeiffer, director of Princeton's Brain Bio Center, and later a student of Dr Abram Hoffer, Director of the International Schizophrenia Foundation in Canada, who were leading the field in mental health and nutrition. In 1980 he started treating mental health patients with nutritional medicine.

In 1984 Patrick founded the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION), a charitable and independent educational trust for the furtherance of education and research in nutrition. Today, ION is the largest training school in the UK offering a diploma course in nutritional therapy and is widely respected as a leading edge organisation by professionals and media alike. Patrick formed a relationship with the late Dr Linus Pauling, who became the Patron of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition.

In 1986, Patrick started researching the effects of nutrition on intelligence, collaborating with Gwillym Roberts, a headmaster and student at ION. This culminated in a randomised controlled trial testing the effects of improved nutrition on children's IQ - an experiment that was the subject of a Horizon documentary and published in the Lancet in 1988. This study was the first of its kind in the world and considerably raised awareness of the role of nutrition in intelligence.

During his years as director of ION, Patrick ran many educational campaigns that brought attention to the importance of zinc and pyrolluyria, disglycaemia, antioxidants, methylation and homocysteine, IgG food allergies, essential fats in mental health - factors still greatly underestimated in the treatment of mental illness. Patrick retired as Director of ION in 1997 to focus on writing, teaching and researching.

Patrick was awarded an honorary Diploma from ION and is also an Honorary Fellow of BANT (the British Association of Nutritional Therapists), and a Member of CHNC (The Complementary and Natural
Healthcare Council). In 2003 he founded the Brain Bio Centre at ION, a treatment centre pioneering the optimum nutrition approach for mental health, to formalise the treatment of mental health with nutrition and to act as a research centre. The Brain Bio centre is owned by the Food for the Brain Foundation, a registered education charity set up by Patrick to promote awareness of the link between learning, behaviour, mental health and nutrition. In 2007, Patrick was appointed Patron of South African Association for Nutritional Therapy, and in 2014 he was inducted onto the Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame.

Patrick lectures and conducts workshops throughout the world on a wide range of topics, to the public, health professionals and the medical profession. In the UK he presents around 50 workshops and lectures a year. His knowledge, personality and enthusiasm, together with his strong scientific approach, helps him to stimulate lively debates, simplifying complex issues and help the public and professionals expand their understanding of health issues. Patrick is frequently involved in government campaigns and debates concerning optimum nutrition.

Product Description

Book Description

How reducing your homocysteine level can dramatically improve your health.

From the Back Cover

From potential health risk to superhealth potential in just two months!

Your homocysteine level - or H level - is the single best indicator of whether you are going to live a long and healthy life or die young. Homocysteine is a toxic substance produced by the body and a high H level is not only a greater risk factor for heart disease than cholesterol, it has been linked to over one- hundred diseases, including Alzheimer's, cancer, osteoporosis and depression. The good news is that you can reduce your level surprisingly quickly - The Homocysteine Solution will show you how. In this groundbreaking book, medical expert Dr James Braly and top nutrition expert Patrick Holford reveal:

* Who is at risk and how you can test your level at home

* Ten simple diet and supplement changes guaranteed to lower your homocysteine

* A highly effective two-month programme to halve your risk of disease

Based on cutting-edge research, yet practical and easy to follow, this book can dramatically increase your chances of living a long, healthy and pain-free life.

'Homocysteine is the new cholesterol. It's potentially your most important health statistic.'

Dr Chris Steele, ITV's This Morning

OMG everybody should read this! My partner has rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure, migraines, he had a homocysteine test and was over 30 and off the scale. He is on the supplements recommended in this book so will do a follow up to this if I can in a few months when he has a retest. It really is worth having a test especially if you have a chronic health problem or autoimmune disease (also if you are considering having a baby). He had a club foot. at birth, we hadnt realised but this means that it is highly likely that both his parents also have high homocysteine levels.
A very interesting book!

I would highly recommend this book to everyone. All of Patrick Holford's books are excellent. The subject of homocysteine is extremely interesting and in the future I am sure it will be regularly referred to when talking about health and avoiding illness. Checking your homocysteine level is easy and the plan in this book for lowering your level thereby increasing your health and decreasing your chance of getting cancer, heart problems, dementia and more is practical and straightforward.

I liked this book.

Followed the homocysteine lowering diet - was pretty straightforward.

I decided to have the test and the result was good.

I am reducing my chances of a stroke & heart attack & I think that's 'A Good Gift to My Family'

Some of the scientific trials done have used too low values of vitamins and supplements and therefore the results are not so good. You have to use something like Patrick Holford's Connect but get in their quick 'cos european regs are removing your freedom to buy supplements.
