Years ago, maybe back in the early part of 2000, I saw a television show about a man who worked on a pig farm and who also had a mentally ill wife and children.
He started a company using nutrients to help his family.  I cannot remember the name of the company but I do remember that he was being hounded by the FDA and other governing bodies because what he was offering was really working for his children and he wanted to help others but he was not a “Doctor” or a “Pharmacist” and because what he was selling was “all natural nutrients” that could not be patented for a buck.
I will try to find the web site and post it later.  I seem to remember that he was in Canada, too.  Hmmm…
I have always felt that nutrition was one of the answers for many illnesses, including mental illness.  I know that I am not in the majority on this, but if you remember the old saying, “You are what you eat” then you might stop to wonder if there is not some truth to that thought.
Anyway, I will try to find information about that man from early on in 2000.

A Landmark Conference Revealing Breakthroughs in Mental Health Treatment via
Micronutrients

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Is nutrition a feasible cure for mental
health? The 1st Annual Micronutrients for Mental Health Conference, held in
San Francisco at Hotel Monaco December 4th and 5th, 2009, will specifically
explore this shifting paradigm.

According to researcher Dr. Bonnie Kaplan, Ph.D., "If substantiated in
controlled trials, the normalization of the mentally ill via nutrient
supplementation would be the most significant breakthrough in the field of
mental illness since the beginning of time."

Peer-reviewed authors and experts from Harvard, Mt. Sinai Hospital, The
University of California, and The Oakland Research Institute will discuss the
vital role of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids in
mental health as well as various protocols of nutrients currently being used
to maximize mental health far beyond what they had previously seen using only
medication.
These researchers have discovered a powerful compound of nutrients that have
effectively treated symptoms of bipolar disorder and depression with a success
rate exceeding that of medication at 80%. They have also proven effective
treating OCD and schizophrenia.

First created in Canada, the unprecedented efficacy of the micronutrient
compounds caught the attention of Harvard psychiatrist Charles Popper who
brought the treatment to hundreds of patients. Today, thousands of documented
Canadians and Americans are well on their path to freedom of mental illnesses.

Currently micronutrients for the treatment of mental health are also being
formally studied at the University of Calgary and the University of
California. Several peer-reviewed articles have already been published to
date.
