Orthomolecular medicine

Stephen Carter

Orthomolecular medicine is part of the foundation of integrative medicine. The term 'orthomolecular' was coined by two-time Nobel Laureate, Linus Pauling, in his seminal article, Orthomolecular Psychiatry, published in the journal Science, April 19th, 1968. The combination of the Greek 'ortho' (meaning straight, correct, right) with 'molecule' created a term that means, literally, right molecule. As conceptualized by Pauling and established through the pioneering leadership of Abram Hoffer, orthomolecular medicine aims to restore the optimum environment of the body by correcting molecular imbalances, determined by a wide range of testing and physician experience, and based on individual biochemistry.
