The approach of orthomolecular physicians is to supply the body with vitamins, minerals and amino acids to create optional nutritional content and balance in the body. This optimization is targeted to prevent or resolve a wide array of disorders including depression, schizophrenia, hypertension, cancer and a host of other mental and psychological disorders. This substitution is performed against a backdrop of biochemical individuality. Remembrance is also given to the inescapable fact that exists of environmental pollution and food adulteration.
The types and amounts of nutrients to be administered is determined by blood tests, urine analysis, and tests for nutrient values. Occasionally, to speed up the process of replenishment, mega-doses of nutrients need to be administered intravenously, which is a remarkably safe procedure; thousands of these are performed on a daily basis within the USA.
Orthomolecular and Nutritional Medicine integrate nutrition and detoxification therapies in a scientific way. At our clinic advice on which nutrients to take, and how to take them will be discussed, so as to optimally benefit your body. If you are on medication, the interaction (if present) between our supplements advised, and your medications will be discussed. Medications and supplements may affect the function and efficacy of each. Our nutritional supplementation consists of a broad 4-category approach:
Equally as important may be the need for certain supplements, so is the need to identify and use only high quality supplements and the companies that market them. These supplements need to be free of preservatives, artificial sweeteners, and fillers and contain accurate quantities of the ingredients listed. Also interactions and warning labels outlining possible interactions with medications should be present, and advice strictly adhered to.
