Orthomolecular Medicine: Natural Cure

Orthomolecular medicine and Optimum nutrition are nutritional health and medical approaches that are based upon the premise that many diseases and abnormalities result from varing biochemical and/or chemical needs specific to each individual.

It holds that they can be prevented, treated, or sometimes cured by achieving optimum levels for that individual's body of various biochemicals which are natural to the body, either through diet or metabolism. It normally employs doses of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements, and essential fatty acids.
