An interview with Jeffrey Bland, Ph.D.

The former senior research scientist at the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine, Jeffrey Bland is the founder of HealthComm International, a research and development company in the field of functional medicine. His most recent book is The 20-Day Rejuvenation Diet Program with Sara Benum (Keats 1996).

Herbs for Health—Why did you decide to write The 20-Day Rejuvenation Diet Program?

Jeffrey Bland—During the past ten years, I’ve worked with more than 25,000 health practitioners to develop nutritional programs for their severely ill patients. Over the years, many doctors have requested such programs for patients who have chronic complaints that can be helped through diet, such as fatigue, digestive problems, and food allergies.

HH—How do nutritional supplements help us maintain good health?

JB—Along with a good diet, a combination of high-potency multivitamins and minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and herbal supplements can combat oxidative stress on the body.

HH—What is oxidative stress?
