Celebrating 50 Years of Orthomolecular Medicine in 2018

The term ‘orthomolecular’ was first used by Linus Pauling in his seminal article, Orthomolecular Psychiatry, published in the journal Science, April 19, 1968. Orthomolecular medicine, as conceptualized by Pauling and established through the pioneering leadership of Abram Hoffer, aims to restore the optimum environment of the body by correcting molecular imbalances on the basis of individual biochemistry.

Orthomolecular medicine is defined as the therapeutic use of substances that occur naturally in the body. Originally defined in the context of treating and preventing psychiatric diseases, the intent of orthomolecular therapy is to provide the optimal molecular environment for the brain and other tissues by altering the intake of nutrients such as vitamins (and their metabolites), minerals, trace elements, macronutrients, as well as other naturally occurring metabolically active substances.
