Dr. Bryce Wylde, one of Canada''s most popular and respected health care practitioners, gives us individualized step-by-step treatment plans to fight disease and stay healthy.

In The Antioxidant Prescription, homeopathic doctor and nutritionist Bryce Wylde addresses what science has discovered to be the true underlying cause of disease: free radicals. These deadly little molecules have many causes, from injury and stress to environmental toxins, genetic predisposition and even the natural by-products of your body''s metabolism. Free radicals cause oxidation, a process that damages cells and can lead to rapid aging, heart disease, Alzheimer''s and even cancer. We all make free radicals. Some people, however, produce them at alarming levels, and those who do are almost certain to battle disease and live shorter, unhealthier lives.

Luckily, free radical damage can be avoided. Antioxidants stop free radicals form damaging other cells in your body and protect you against disease. With The Antioxidant Prescription, Dr. Wylde enables you to recognize the warning signs of free radical damage and make an accurate assessment of your body''s free radical load. He''ll introduce you to the medical testing available to determine whether you will benefit from high dose antioxidant therapy as well as the new research around mind over health matters. With his help, you will be able to design and implement a customized antioxidant plan based on your age, lifestyle, environment, stress levels and medical history.

As always, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. With The Antioxidant Prescription you''ll be equipped with tools to take preventive action against conditions that lurk within your genetic code. This book is the perfect prescription for lasting health.

Read from the Book

Chapter 1 THE HUMAN HEALTH THRESHOLD We live in an era strangely cursed and blessed. We’re increasingly surrounded by invisible dangers our great-grandparents could not have dreamed of. In fact, until recently, most of us hardly dreamed of them ourselves. But what we once suspected or heard rumoured, we now know for certain: Our air, our water, our food and many of the everyday objects we employ are a constant threat to our health and safety. And yet – and this is the blessed part – this same knowledge is our hope for a bright future for ourselves and for humanity at large. The subject of human health is almost unimaginably vast, and our body’s interactions with our surroundings are almost too complex to grasp. But in this book I’m going to zoom in and focus on the meaning of human health through the lens of a single natural phenomenon – I’m tempted to say “drama” – that plays out at a scale so tiny that ordinary microscopes cannot see its workings. There are villains in this drama but, as in any good story, these characters are dynamic. The fact is they often spend much of their time doing us a tremendous service. Even if we were able to round every one of them up and do them in, we’d be the ones to suffer in the end. That’s why our task will be to understand them first, then deal with them wisely – perhaps I should say “humanely,” since they’re a necessary part of life. This gang
