My book on alternative medication - A Nutritional Approach to a Revised Model for Medicine

Is Alternative Medicine the Answer We Need? Are we poisoning ourselves with the foods we eat? Dr. Derrick Lonsdale, M.D., provides the nutritional and health care answers we need in his no-nonsense book A Nutritional Approach to a Revised Model for Medicine: Is Modern Medicine Helping You? Can a simple change in our diet make all the difference? Are we eating too much sugar? Could the obesity epidemic, diabetes, and a host of other diseases be the result of our present dietary mayhem? This is the view expressed in the illuminating book by author Derrick Lonsdale M.D., who draws attention to the dangers of the prolific ingestion of sugar that is so widespread today. The book cites case reports to illustrate these dangers and to emphasize the ease with which symptoms may be stemmed in the early stages. However, if symptoms are left unrecognized and behavior is unmodified, these symptoms become less treatable, giving rise to chronic diseases and serious health problems. This is one house call you won’t want to miss! A NUTRITIONAL APPROACH TO A REVISED MODEL FOR MEDICINE: IS MODERN MEDICINE HELPING YOU?

  1. Dear Dr Lonsdale

    I wanted to send you an email but your email address doesn't seem to work as my posts bounce back.

    I saw a blog post you wrote on Diabetes Challenge about the use of thiamine derivatives in autonomic neuropathy and have read some of your papers on thiamine.

    I'm wondering what you think about the use of Sulbutiamine as a treatment for idiopathic dysautonomia and/or diabetic autonomic neuropathy?

    I understand that you recommend a Japanese product but I think it would be impossible to get this product in the UK (at least not at any kind of affordable price). It is however possible for patients to easily get hold of Sulbutiamine, which can apparently cross the blood-brain barrier. I wondered if this could be a useful alternative?

    Do you think (theoretically) that there would be any issues with a T1 diabetic taking Sulbutiamine, and do you think it would be a good idea to take it alongside benfotiamine as they appear to have different effects (one acts on the CNS and the other on peripheral tissues).

    Also do you think it's possible for fat soluble thiamine derivatives to build up to toxic levels at doses of say 200mg a day?

    Thanks for any information you could offer.


    1. Benfotiamine has been used as a protection from diabetic complications in both Types I and II. Information is published in the medical literarure (Thornalley). It does not cross the blood/brain barrier whereas the disulfide derivatives do, Therefore the disulfides should have benefit in brain disease. I have been working with thiamine tetrahydrofurfuryl disulfide (Alinamin: Fursultiamine) in patients since 1973 and at huge doses, have not seen any toxicity (see "An Unusual Recovery" (blog). The principle is different from "drug treatment". All thiamine derivatives work by "boosting" cellular energy, hence the sick cells tend to recover and work more efficiently.
