The Hypoglycemic Connection II is a second edition of the 1984 edition, written for both the professional
and lay person. Dr George Samra describes hypoglycemia as a real disease that the medical text books have forgotten. The part of the body most affected is the brain. Hence the disorder may be found among many mentally disturbed patients. His book describes the Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT), specially designed to diagnose the six types of hypoglycemia, including hypoglycia. The latter may have normal blood sugar levels in the GTT, but glucose starvation affects the brain, especially the hypothalamus, due to an abnormal copper/zinc ratio.
The Food & Disease Paradigm attempts to make both doctors and patients aware of the role of food and other allergies in the management of their illness. Over 90% of asthma sufferers are allergic to dust mite. Dr Samra suggests that drugs should only be used as a last resort. Asthma patients should be taught how to improve their environment, particularly their bedrooms, to minimize exposure to asthma triggers. He discusses at length nutritional treatment of different chronic illnesses, such as arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, colitis, migraine, psoriasis and even more.
Dr Samra has in the past been a regular on talk-back radio 2GB on the Owen Delaney Show. He has been asked to help assessing and treating prisoners at various times in the past, both at Long Bay Jail in Malabar and Parklea Prison in Parklea, as programs paid for and sponsored by the NSW prison system using nutritional skills to help prison rehabilitation.
Lecturer: Dr Samra is a senior lecturer for the ACNEM and has lectured regularly in recent years to medical practitioners training in nutritional and environmental medicine. He also regularly lectures to various charity and community organisations which seek his services.
