Bridging Conventional and Alternative Medicine

It wasn't what was said that was so revolutionary; it was who was in the audience listening to the message that broke the mould

It wasn't what was said that was so revolutionary; it was who was in the audience listening to the message that broke the mould. Well-known nutritional expert Sam Graci was recently speaking in Mississauga on his cross-Canada book tour.

It's well known that conventional medical practitioners receive almost no education about dietary supplements or complementary, preventive health care. However, on this night, Graci's audience included students from medical schools at McMaster University and the University of Toronto's Faculty of Medicine.

These medical students were there to hear Graci's message thanks to their visionary professors, including Dr. A. Venket Rao from the U of T, whose current research focuses on the relationship between oxidative stress and the risk of chronic diseases, including cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Dr. Rao and his students are studying the role phytochemical antioxidants such as those found in fruits and vegetables can play in the preventive and healing processes.

It's a message we at alive have been delivering for over 30 years, and we're glad to know that some in the medical community may now be hearing us.
