New hope for the victims of schizophrenia and the friends of schizophrenics

Dr. Abram Hoffer pioneered the use of Vitamin B-3 (niacin) as a treatment for various schizophrenias starting in 1952 and has proven over a long series of experiments and case studies that this treatment can double the natural or spontaneous recovery rate. Despite these conclusive findings, the American Psychiatric Association and international drug companies have shown no enthusiasm for such vitamin treatments, promoting instead the use of high-priced tranquilizers and antidepressants which can be patented (unlike vitamins) and sold at high cost. This is the story of Dr. Hoffer's quest to provide natural, effective treatment for schizophrenics; this is also the story of schizophrenic patients who have been healed by vitamin treatment.
