Welcome to Orthomolecular

Orthomolecular Medicine and optimum nutrition
are controversial medical and health therapies claiming that many
diseases and abnormalities result from various chemical imbalances
or deficiencies and can be prevented, treated, or sometimes cured
by achieving optimal levels of naturally occurring chemical substances,
such as vitamins, dietary minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, amino
acids, lipotropes, essential fatty acids, prohormones, dietary fiber
and intestinal short chain fatty acids.
The word "orthomolecular" was introduced by two time
Nobel Proze winner Linus Pauling in "Orthomolecular Psychiatry",
his seminal 1968 article published in the journal Science. Before
defining this term, it may be useful to review some of the events
that led to its introduction. In 1949, Pauling and his colleagues
published a paper in Science that announced the discovery of the
cause of sickle-cell anemia, the first disease to be described as
a molecular disease. He had worked on hemoglobin for many years
and published a number of papers on its properties. The treatment
of diabetes by the injection of insulin and the prevention of goiter
with iodine are other instances of orthomolecular medicine.
