Nutritional supplementation includes the use of specific vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other chemical compounds in a therapeutic dose to support your body's healing process. How many times have you walked down the supplement aisle at a health food store only to turn away in overwhelm as 10 different magnesium products stare you down? With the ever increasing number of decisions to be made on a day-to-day basis, it is no surprise that we may feel inundated by choice and unsure of how to proceed in the natural health arena. This is where naturopathic medicine shines - trained to analyze the quality, strength, dosing and effectiveness of various nutraceuticals, I can help guide you through the decision making process and determine which nutrients will best support your needs. Our nutraceuticals used in clinic are of the highest quality and include practitioner-only companies.
Orthomolecular medicine translates to "right molecule" and was coined by two time Nobel Prize winner and molecular biologist, Linus Pauling, Ph.D in 1968. Orthomolecular medicine is the practice of disease prevention and treatment by providing the body with optimal amounts of naturally occurring compounds in the body. Pauling is most famous for his extensive research on vitamin C - his work is reflected among the naturopathic community today.
