Orthomolecular Medicine:: Alternative medicine terms defined. Holistic health  theories defined.

Orthomolecular Medicine is the theory that the molecules normally present in the body are the best prevention and treatment for any disease condition. These molecules are available as part of our nutrition.

"Orthomolecular" means “right" or "proper  molecule.” All molecules that enter our bodies have the potential to react in multiple pathways. Thus, most drugs have side effects. Whenever the chemicals of this chemical body are out of balance, health suffers. 

Dr. Pauling defined orthomolecular medicine as “the preservation of good health and the treatment of disease by varying the concentrations in the human body of substances that are normally present in the body and are required for health."

Orthomolecular’ means therefore: the right molecular surroundings or optimal biochemical environment. Which means that all substances normally resident in a body, such as vitamins and minerals, are present in optimal quantities.

Although additional research is needed to determine the optimum nutrition for every human illness, it is important to use the best information we have to maintain optimum nutrition throughout life. 

The essence of Orthmolecular practice is “put nutrition first" and teach the patient that health is not merely the absence of disease but the positive attainment of optimal function and well being.

Orthomolecular medicine  treats disease but it also preserves health.

In orthomolecular medicine, diseases are assumed to originate from multiple nonspecific causes, congenital and acquired. These causes give rise to biochemical aberrations, the accumulation of which results in symptoms and signs, from which the perception of a disease state follows.

In contrast, clinical diagnosis conventionally rests on the assumption that signs, symptoms and anomalous laboratory findings follow from specific diseases, each of which in turn follows from unique causes. 

The treatment of diabetes by the injection of insulin and the prevention of goiter with iodine are instances of orthomolecular medicine.
