  1. Pfeiffer / Walsh protocol:

This protocol was started by Dr. Pfeiffer in the fifties and sixties. Today it is continued by Dr. Walsh, who is preparing a book, and has updated the protocol. Dr. Pfeiffer has written several books but some information is now dated. The summary of one of his most important books can be found in the Greek section of this website with the title “The importance of orthomolecular nutrition in the treatment of psychiatric disorders”. The Pfeiffer / Walsh protocol uses special obligatory blood and urine tests which are done in the USA and London. In order for a psychiatrist to be trained in this protocol, he or she must attend a 10-day intensive course in the USA or Australia. The tuition fees for this course are approximately 1000 dollars. The Pfeiffer / Walsh protocol is suitable for all psychiatric and children’s psychiatric disorders. For more information, visit www.walshinstitute.org or contact telephone number 001-630-596-5095.

 

  1. Hoffer protocol

This was developed in the fifties and sixties by Dr. Abram Hoffer and is suitable for certain patients with schizophrenia. Dr. Hoffer died recently and his practice in Victoria, Canada is now run by a woman named Francis Fuller. In order to be trained, you have to go there for a couple of days. Francis Fuller’s email address is ffuller@islandnet.com. The website address is:

  1. Equilib protocol

This was derived from the Truehope protocol and is suitable for depression and bipolar disorder. The website is:

Training is free of charge via the Internet. Due to the fact that there isn’t so much information on their website yet, we suggest that psychiatrists also follow the training for the Truehope protocol.

Also, the following is a very useful website for alternative psychiatry:

For orthomolecular child psychiatry, a very useful book is the following:
