Many people start applying the concepts of orthomolecular medicine after researching it on their own, and begin taking supplements without a doctor's advice (which is rarely a good idea). 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.

To provide the cutting-edge medical knowledge of nutrient therapy to health care professionals for further advancement of orthomolecular medicine around the world. Many diseases are caused by the body's lack of micronutrients like vitamins, trace elements and amino acids.

This concept requires very large doses of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, or botanical extracts for the cellular repair and enhancement of normal brain activities. The field of orthomolecular medicine originated with Nobel laureate Linus Pauling when he proposed that vitamin C was useful in treating and preventing the common cold.

No, vitamin C does not prevent the Common Cold but it does help to minimize symptoms and megadoses, from 365 mg up to bowel tolerance, depending on the clinical situation, do confer benefits greater than the government recommended dose of 60 mg. This is what Dr. Pauling said in the first place: that the optimal intake of vitamin C had not been determined.

Pauling wanted to follow up on Cameron's success and, in 1972, the two attempted to publish a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Science on ascorbic acid as a treatment for cancer and other diseases. Cameron E. & Campbell A: The orthomolecular treatment of cancer.

Orthomolecular nutrient therapy is part of nutrilogical medicine and has been defined scientifically as Orthomolecular Medicine (OM)" by Nobel Prize laureate L. Pauling. The experimental group received amounts of megavitamins based on their individual serum vitamin levels plus dietary restriction based on Radioallergosorbent (RAST) tests.

A widely respected scientist, Frei's research has focused on the mechanisms causing chronic human disease, in particular atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, and the role that micronutrients, phytochemicals, and dietary supplements might play in ameliorating these diseases.

21 Riordon's organization cite figures from this period as founders of their movement, 22 although the word orthomolecular" was coined by Linus Pauling only in 1967. More than 15 years before Linus Pauling coined the word orthomolecular", Abram Hoff er and his colleague Humphry Osmond established the important role played by vitamins B3 and C in the treatment of schizophrenia.

The annual Orthomolecular Medicine Today Conference features research and clinical-experience-based health and nutrition presentations by experts from around the world. Orthomolecular treatment with B12, folic acid, and other methyl donor nutrients can restore methylation status.5 Methyl donor treatment respects the brain's innate ability to ‘decide' what specific pathways need more neurotransmitter.

The term orthomolecular 1968 marked by biochemists and two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling (Orthomolecular Psychiatry: Varying Concentrations of Substances normally present in the human body May control mental disease Science 160, 265-271; 1968.).
