Orthomolecular Health is dedicated to the advancement of orthomolecular medicine in Canada and internationally. We educate the public and health professionals on the benefits & necessity of an individualized, nutrition-based approach to healing and caring for the body. Orthomolecular Therapy employs the use of vitamins and nutrients in the form of diet and supplements to support the body with optimal nutrition, encouraging proper functionality and promoting mental & physical health.
Used to describe an approach aimed at correcting the molecular environment within the body, two-time Nobel Prize winner, and molecular biologist, Linus Pauling, Ph.D., coined the term “Orthomolecular” in his 1968 article Orthomolecular Psychiatry in the academic journal Science.
Orthomolecular Health is a division of the International Schizophrenia Foundation, a charitable non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with schizophrenia and other mental illnesses improve their health so that they can lead healthy, independent lives.
