What’s “Orthomolecular” Medicine and How Does it Apply to Me?
As a Nutritional Coach, I feel I need to stay on top of the latest nutritional research. This is why I belong to the Canadian Society for Orthomolecular Medicine. This term basically means “correct molecule” and was coined by Linus Pauling, our favourite advocate of vitamin C supplementation. The Orthomolecular movement supports the use of good diet and supplements including mineral and vitamin supplements, enzymes and other naturally occurring molecules to bring about wellness and freedom from disease. Thanks to Dr. Pauling, Dr. Hoffer, Dr. Pfeiffer and numerous other orthomolecular pioneers too numerous to mention, we have a solid international network of Scientists, Medical Doctors and Naturopaths who support natural methods to achieve optimal wellness.
