This week Jerry Katzman M.D. interviews Dennis Harper D.O. co author with Peter Greenlaw of Amazon Kindle’s no.1 best selling book Why Diets are Failing Us . Dr. Harper A leading expert in the field of Toxicity, nutritional Deficiency, Obesity, and Stress discusses his 25 year patient experience in the world of alternative or complementary medicine and how it changed his own personal and professional life . Dr. Harper is considered a pioneer in Medicine for his , strong moral and ethical stance and determination as a patient advocate for the adoption and use of vitamins, nutraceuticals and other forms of alternative medicine as an adjunct to traditional medicine especially when traditional medicine proved unsuccessful. Under strong personal and political pressure and against all odds he refused to abandon his convictions. With the threat of the loss of his license he started a grass roots effort to educate leaders on his observations and experience in treating patients with alternative nutraceutical therapies . His direct statewide efforts led to the creation and support of national legislation written by Sen Orin Hatch to change how the FDA would regulate nutraceuticals. Dr. Harper is still trying to change the paradigm of alternative medicine being “quackery”. The laws were changed and today complementary medicine is now an accepted part of many medical practices. Join Dr.Katzman and listen to this incredible showing of courage, patient advocacy and personal determination.
