Julian Whitaker, MD, is medical director of the Whitaker Wellness Institute, one of the country's largest and most comprehensive integrative medicine clinics. A graduate of Dartmouth College, he received his medical degree in 1970 from Emory University Medical School in Atlanta, Georgia. After completing a surgical internship at Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital, he continued his training at the University of California in San Francisco.

Dr. Whitaker ultimately chose to forgo a surgical career in favor of integrative medicine. From 1976 to 1977, he was on the medical staff of the Pritikin Longevity Center, and in 1979, he opened the Whitaker Wellness Institute. Since then, more than 50,000 patients have come to the clinic for treatment of heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, obesity, autoimmune disorders, and other chronic diseases. LEARN MORE

I could easily relate and remembered years ago being hit with a bout of severe nausea while in the middle of a therapy session. I felt like I would fall off my chair, but as horrible as it was, it rapidly passed and I was able to continue. My resolution after that experience was to find a new supplement. Today the problem isn't as difficult to remedy because the new food based multis are tolerated much better and can be taken with or without food. We'll look at the ingredients in some of these multiple vitamin/mineral preparations shortly. But first should we even be bothered with them at all? READ MORE
