ORTHOMOLECULAR MEDICINE


What is ORTHOMOLECULAR MEDICINE?

Orthomolecular medicine includes the prevention and treatment of disease through substances natural to the human body.

Orthomolecular medicine utilizes adequate amounts of amino and fatty acids, trace elements and vitamins to rebalance biochemical abnormalities in disease prevention.

Identified with Scientist Linus Pauling, orthomolecular medicine is based on the scientific foundation of biochemistry, clinical nutrition and nutrition altogether.

Some other types of orthomolecular medicine include acupuncture, air ion therapy, antibodies, antigens, biofeedback, cell therapy, chelation therapy, dialysis, enzymes, exercise, fiber, hydrotherapy, hypnotherapy and varying psychotherapies, light therapy, massage, minerals, plasmapheresis, thermal therapy, phototherapy, and electrotherapy; solar therapy as well.

Orthomolecular medicine confers upon putting nutrition first when it comes to medical diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, the goals of orthomolecular medicine are cure the cause, and use treatment based on wellness model of ecological view.

What Types of Conditions
Does It Help?


Orthomolecular medicine benefits children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly who
have the following problems, diseases,
and/or conditions:
  1. NERVOUS SYSTEM

  2. DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

  3. RESPIRATORY SYSTEM

  4. SKIN

  5. VASCULAR SYSTEM

  6. JOINTS

  7. MUSCLES AND FASCIA

  8. REPRODUCTIVE ORGANS

  9. IMMUNE SYSTEM

  10. EMBRYOLOGY

  11. ADDICTIONS

  12. INTER-BODY SYSTEMS
NERVOUS SYSTEM
  1. Depression and anxiety disorders, Fear and Stress
  2. Beriberi (a deficiency of thiamine (vitamin B) causing neurologic, mental, and cardiovascular problems)
  3. Schizophrenia (vitamin B (niacin) can treat it)
  4. Parkinson's Disease (large quantities of vitamin B, either niacin or niacin amide, protect people against the tendency of L-dopa to cause psychosis)
  5. Memory and cognition problem
  6. Atherosclerosis (Coronary angiographic evidence reveals antioxidant
    intake reduces progression of atherosclerosis)
  7. Hyperactivity (niacin amide, or niacin, vitamin C, pyridoxine, and Zinc are effective in treating this condition, especially in children)
  8. Headache (magnesium aids headache relief)
  9. Mood disorders (Vitamin supplementation for year improves mood)
  10. Psychiatric/mental illness (methylfolate enhances recovery from psychiatric illness)
  11. Pellagra (A severe deficiency of niacin)
  12. Shingles (Herpes Zoster)
DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
  1. colic (injection of potassium activates the intestinal walls, enhancing digestive abilities)
  2. gastrointestinal disorders
  3. Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Bowel intolerance (vitamin C can treat it; flaxseed improves bowel function)
  4. Constipation
  5. Cystitis (bladder infections)
  6. Endometriosis
  7. Flatulence
  8. Colitis
  9. Crohn's disease
  10. Diverticulitis
  11. Obesity and weight management
RESPIRATORY SYSTEM
  1. Common cold (vitamin C can treat it; Zinc gluconate lozenges reduce duration of common cold)
  2. Hay fever (vitamin C can treat it)
  3. Viral pneumonia (vitamin C can treat it)
  4. Asthma (vitamin C can treat it)
  5. Influenza (vitamin C can treat it)
  6. Allergies
  7. Angina
SKIN
  1. Bruises
  2. Cystic mastitis
  3. Burns
  4. Acne (topical nicotinamide and clindamycin gel can treat acne vulgaris)
  5. Eczema
  6. Hives (Uritcaria)
  7. Insect bites
  8. Furunculosis (vitamin C can treat recurrent fururculosis in patients with impaired neutrophill functions)
  9. Macular degeneration (carotenoids protect against macular degeneration)
  10. Psoriasis (essential fatty acids, including omega- can lessen the symptoms of this affliction)
VASCULAR SYSTEM
  1. Raynaud's Disease
  2. Heart attacks (intravenous magnesium sulphate (a mineral compound) can speed recovery time in hear attack victims; vitamin C improves endothelium-dependent vasodilation)
  3. Heart disease (essential fatty
    acids, including omega- and omega-, can decrease risk factors for heart disease)
  4. Heart arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) (dosages of magnesium can treat it)
  5. Chronic anemia
  6. Hypoglycemia (chromium (a trace mineral) regulates the body's response to sugar and insulin)
  7. Diabetes (chromium (a trace mineral) regulates the body's response to sugar and insulin)
  8. Cholesterol imbalance (chromium can aid in lowering cholesterol; flaxseed reduces low density lipoprotein count; niacin lowers LDL as well)
  9. hypertension (injections of vitamin C, magnesium
    sulphate, vitamin B, and zinc sulphate prevent high blood pressure duringsurgery and postsurgical complications)
  10. Chronic fatigue syndrome (low Carnitine level found in those who suffer from this condition)
  11. Heavy Metal Toxicity
JOINTS
  1. Osteoarthritis
  2. Rheumatoid arthritis (essential fatty acids, including omega- can lessen the symptoms of this affliction)
MUSCLES AND FASCIA
  1. Muscular cramps
REPRODUCTIVE ORGANS
  1. Herpes simplex (cold sores)
  2. Infertility
  3. Prostate enlargement
  4. Vaginal diseases (probiotics- microorganism administration prevent these diseases)
  5. Cervical dysplasia (Folic Acid can treat this pre-cancerous condition of the uterus)
IMMUNE SYSTEM
  1. AIDS (Strong nutrition and diet is necessary to combat this viral, sexually transmitted autoimmune disease)
  2. Childhood infectious illness (vitamin A can treat and prevent it)
EMBRYOLOGY
  1. Neural tube defects in newborns (Folic Acid (a B vitamin) is a recommended preventive measure for pregnant women)
ADDICTIONS
  1. Alcoholism
INTER-BODY SYSTEMS
  1. Cancer (higher levels of betacarotene (a precursor of vitamin A) are associated withlower rates of cancer; selenium supplements reduce risk of cancer with % of patients; vitamin E helps prevent cancer)
