While classic deficiency diseases were very uncommon in industrialized countries, there were a large number of individuals suffering from insufficiency of nutrients, which were contributing to ill health. Dr. Linus Pauling (Double Nobel Prize Winner), in 1968, created the term, Orthomolecular Medicine, and he defined it as the Optimal Molecule (from the Greek word: Orto-Optimal). In July the Board decided to start addressing the problem by renaming the Institute of Orthomolecular Medicine.

Dr Abram Hoffer, a Canadian psychiatrist, is one of the doyens of Orthomolecular Medicine, and introduced the use of high doses of vitamin B3 to treat Schizophrenia successfully. Inflammatory conditions and immune-mediated diseases may respond to increased doses of essential fatty acids, especially omega 3 fatty acids.

Orthomolecular medicine is not a mega-vitamin therapy" which uses the scattering principle. There are many treatment options available: nutrition, Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, western herbs, orthomolecular medicine and psychology. 1970 Dr. Pauling publishes Vitamin C and the Common Cold and Dr. Williams publishes Nutrition Against Disease.

Even so, less than one week later Pauling acted on Goldstein's statement; he wrote a letter to a colleague explaining that he wanted to research the effects of high doses of vitamin C on sickle cell patients. In 1968 the late Linus Pauling used the term orthomolecular, which by definition means right molecule.

For one, in the mid-1970s, orthomolecular psychiatry, rather than sticking to megavitamin doses, expanded to include diet in the treatment of mental health, as well as avoiding stimulants like nicotine. Get individualized, proven prevention and treatment plans for Alzheimer's, depression, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorder, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities,Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, and more.

The human body has limited capacity to use vitamins in its metabolic activities. The scientific agreement read is that for traditional people, a diet contains all necessary vitamins and minerals, which routine supplementation isn't necessary absent specific diagnosed deficiencies.

Treatment with the appropriate vitamins and minerals for life, can be life-changing. Dr. Linus Pauling, professor of chemistry at Stanford University, and two-time recipient of the Nobel Prize, coined the term orthomolecular" in a 1968 report called Orthomolecular Psychiatry.

We often see subgroups of essential fatty acid deficiency, inadequate nutriture, dysglycemia, food intolerance, digestive http://s2qrbhs177.uniterre.com compromise, malabsorption, under-methylation, vitamin B3 deficiency, vitamin C deficiency, heavy metal toxicity, B6 deficiency, zinc deficiency, brain hypothyroidism, and hypoadrenia.

Orthomolecular medicine has a key role in the treatment of mood and behaviour disorders. The substances used in orthomolecular medicine are always natural including: amino acids, fatty acids, trace elements, vitamins and minerals.
