To put it in layman’s terms, Orthomolecular Nutrition focuses on maintaining or restoring biochemistry and physiology in the body for optimum health and well-being. The primary attention is on your body’s chemistry and how deeply you are effected, good or negatively, by the foods you consume.
Working at this molecular level a Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner, such as myself, can assess your body’s deepest needs to function at optimal health levels to prevent disease, give you more energy, clarity and overall well being. This can be achieved through an in-depth assessment of your imbalances and lack of nutrients or your body’s ability to use the nutrients you eat.
Once this is determined the Practitioner will prescribe a diet specifically for you and, if necessary, supplements, cleansing and or detoxification to help your body better absorb and put to use the vitamins, minerals, enzymes and all the other components of natures medicine, food, to keep you healthy, happy and ready to accept each day as it comes!
