Orthomolecular Medicine Provider in Abingdon, VA
Orthomolecular medicine is a branch of functional medicine . Orthomolecular medicine believes that treating many medical conditions should start with the cause — and not the symptoms.
Many times in traditional medical practices, you are given medications or treatments to manage a set of symptoms. Orthomolecular medicine goes beyond simply prescribing prescriptions and instead seeks to address health problems at the source with targeted doses of minerals, vitamins and amino acids.
Orthomolecular medicine was perfected by Nobel Prize-winning scientist Linus Pauling, PhD, in the late 1960s. Pauling built his research on centuries of proof that medical conditions can be treated with high doses of specific foods and nutrients.
