The term Orthomolecular Medicine was created and defined by the Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling in an essay concerning orthomolecular psychiatry. Orthomolecular medicine deals with the effects of micronutrients like vitamins, vitaminoids, amino acids, micronutrients, secondary plant substances and minerals. Micronutrients in many cases are a good alternative to psychotropic drugs. They are well tolerated and do not carry the risk of addiction. Furthermore, they speed up the psychotherapeutic process empirically.
Psychological diseases always cause an imbalance of neurotransmitters, the messengers of the brain. This imbalance can be regulated naturally through orthomolecular medicine and psychotherapy. The effect extends to the epigenetic level of the cell. In some cases, analyses visualize biochemical imbalances and risks even before they become clinically relevant. In this case micronutrients can even be applied for precise prevention.
In order to simplify the intake, thanks to an internationally patented procedure micronutrients can be processed to a granulate mixture.
Orthomolecular medicine is not only a valuable alternative to psychotropic drugs but also forms the basis of modern preventive, better aging and lifestyle medicine
