“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and pension of disease.”
Thomas A Edison
Orthomolecular Nutrition describes the practice of preventing and reversing various health challenges by providing the body with optimal amounts of nutritional substances which are natural to the body. The term "orthomolecular" was first used by two time "Noble Prize Winner" Linus Pauling in a paper he wrote in the journal Science in 1968. This paper first described the theoretical foundations for what was later to become a specialty within integrative medicine healthcare. Many people use the term "nutritional therapy" synonymously with orthomolecular nutrition, although the latter covers a much
broader range of healthcare issues.
The key idea in orthomolecular nutritional medicine is that genetic factors are central not only to the physical characteristics of individuals, but also to their biochemical milieu. Biochemical pathways of the body have significant genetic variability in terms of transcriptional potential and individual enzyme concentrations, receptor-site binding, affinities and protein transporter efficiency. Diseases such as atherosclerosis, cancer, schizophrenia and depression are associated with specific biochemical abnormalities, which are either causal or aggravating factors of the illness. In the orthomolecular view, it is possible that the provision of vitamins, amino acids, trace elements or fatty acids in amounts sufficient to correct biochemical abnormalities will be therapeutic in preventing or treating such diseases.
For the better part of the 20th Century, we've been taking vitamin and mineral supplements to eliminate deficiencies. Orthomolecular nutritional medicine takes this idea one step further, holding that larger than usual doses of certain nutrients can actually prevent or cure disease. Although there's still considerable debate over specific dosages and their therapeutic effects, the basic principle is now firmly established and widely accepted. Two of America's greatest scourges--heart disease and high blood pressure--can sometimes both be held at bay by high-dose nutrients, and advocates insist that many other chronic conditions, including diabetes and schizophrenia, can be helped as well.
We provide a comprehensive orthomolecular nutritional interpretation of your standard medical findings and lab mineral interpretation. After collecting and interpretation of all data an orthomolecular/ nutritional wellness program is tailored based on your individual biochemical needs.
Note: Taking non-prescribed food supplements and food factors is not the same as a customized orthomolecular nutrition program.
Only practitioners trained in orthomolecular nutrition can do mineral and biochemical balancing. After the initial orthomolecular program, you are monitored and your progress reassessed through appropriate lab test interpretation as deemed necessary until the desired result is achieved.
This program is geared towards individuals who are willing to take responsibility for their own health… Program will be designed to help guide you on your wellness journey. The emphasis is not on disease treatment but on commitment of participants which will pay big dividends in health.
