In this revision of the 1999 edition, contributors with the Institute of Functional Medicine in Washington state seek to educate practitioners on clinical nutrition. Also known as molecular nutrition, this field ventures beyond the traditional focus on deficiencies to examine metabolic patterns and nutrient interactions for optimal health. Chapters treat macro- and micro-nutrients, effects of gut ecology and environmental toxins, and the IFM approach to assessing nutritional status. A major emphasis is on food allergies/intolerance, although it is acknowledged that this is an area of controversy. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
