The culmination of more than ten years of research by the authors, this book describes for the first time ever the scientific basis and clinical applications of medical biochemistry, a fundamental paradigm shift in medicine. This paradigm shift is so revolutionary that it has been called the Neustadt-Pieczenik Paradigm, which is the fusion and clinical applications of biochemistry, thermodynamics, physiology, fractal enzymology, nutritional medicine and laboratory testing to identify and correct the underlying causes of many diseases that are considered genetic in nature (eg, Phenylketonuria) and those that are not considered genetic (eg, mature onset asthma, depression, fatigue). In this new medicine, doctors must reject the failed, purely symptomatic treatments they learned in medical school and focus on learning and treating the underlying biochemical causes of disease. From the first documented clinical observations of biochemical individuality in the early 1900s to the development of sophisticated biochemical tests, the authors provide a detailed and stunning analysis of a new medical model to help millions and cure our ailing healthcare system.
