I’ve finally got into the swing of this whole ‘university’ thing so get ready to be bombarded with the amaaaaazing things I’ve been learning about (promise, not too much Bioscience).
Usually it’s not until we’re deficient in something that we start to think about vitamins but, are we waiting too long before we open that bottle?
For every drug that benefits a patient, there is a natural substance that can achieve the same effect. – Pfieffer’s Law
Da da da daaaaaa! Introducing Othomolecular Medicine! Orthomolecular Medicine is the practice of preventing and treating disease by providing the body with optimal amounts of substances which are natural to the body.
Theoretically everyone knows that a balanced diet and the right intake of minerals and vitamins is important for overall health, big whoop I hear you say. But did you know that high doses of Vitamin C is used as a cancer treatment, Vitamin C (the hero again) and E for heart disease? How about Niacin and B3 for Schizophrenia? I for one, had no clue and something tells me I’ll be leaning towards this practice of medicine in the future.
Do yourself a favour – have a read at some of the highlights of this practice http://orthomolecular.org/history/index.shtml and plan your next visit to Chemist Warehouse.
