Oh Miss Dotslady, I sure understand about knowing some things but unable to get a friend or relative to act on it since the ‘doctors’ are handling it! The doctors know what they are doing, they are professionals! I recently heard about a kindergarten boy who in his first month of school was abusive to a teacher in an over crowded class room and no mother monitors or teacher’s Assistants to assist the overwhelmed under paid professional. The child hit the teacher so the child was sent to the county mental ward for evaluation (obviously there is extenuating circumstances involved). His poor parents had fed him with the cheapest foods that the food stamps could stretch, mostly no cook foods sugars and starches; cookies, chips, Raman noodles undressed. As the artificial food (known to produce rage- anger- and other unwanted actions from a 5 year old) was given to him; the nutrition was null and near void. So the little impressionable kid is sent to the institution put on drugs and fed ice cream and other sweets during his stay. Two weeks later the kid now has had so much government and medical trauma he is soon to be scheduled for his first surgery; he takes seven different kinds of prescription meds(one of them is a high blood pressure med to counteract the ADD med; and this boy is not back to any class room almost a full month later. In the example can we say, ‘the system does not work'?
This little boy was misbehaving but the authorities are already cutting up a 5 year old and prescribing 5-6 more medicines than is warranted, in my opinion. My tonsils would back up on my 5 year old body too if I had to handle the stress and no win situations that the normal societal demands of a kindergartener. Feed him food; stop the toxins of multiple prescription drugs, nourish him spirit and his body, teach him values; don’t just add $thousands of dollars in drugs and surgeries so the doctors can say, “we tried” but thanks for flipping the Medicaid doctor bills my fellow tax payers!
I understand your frustration at not being able to influence your nephews care; but like asking a lazy eye muscle to stare at a 200 watt light bulb for 2 hours a day (presuming to strengthen the eye; or the dressing of a ‘leper’s” canker with mercury; the doctors are only making money at the expense of others; they are guessing not fixing.

That is so sad that we can't truly practice preventative medicine! (we can if we know enough individually but it would be nice for the mainline medical establishment to participate also.)

Thank you Margie. What I think about is that I monitor my levels of B12 and folate, fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, and iron levels (in addition to regular labs such as a CBC, metabolic, etc). If "they're" low ... what's not to say the others aren't also?! How do we know without testing? The only way is to have such horrid symptoms they notice? I think about my nephew with schizophrenia who was hospitalized. I got his mother to ask them for a celiac panel and they wouldn't do it. I told her to ask for B vitamin testing and they wouldn't do it. But they DID pump him full of drugs and send him on his way.

If we had no nutritional deficiencies our immune systems would be strong enough to fight off most viruses. That doesn't seem to be the case for most people. I believe in supplements.

Common myths

Myth: Vitamins are dangerous.
Truth: In over the past 10 years, no one has died from taking vitamin supplements.
According to the "2001 Annual Report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers Toxic Exposure Surveillance System," the number of deaths resulted from taking vitamins is ZERO.

Myth: No one is deficient of essential nutrients.
Truth: According to the "USDA's Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals", a major amount of people do not consume enough essential vitamins and minerals in their diets compared to the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs). Below are some statistics from the survey which list the percentage of people (age 20 and over) who do not meet the RDAs for:
• Vitamin A:
• Males: 60.9%
• Females: 59.6%
• Vitamin E:
• Males: 64.4%
• Females: 73.0%
• Vitamin B6:
• Males: 52.6%
• Females: 64.2%
• Calcium:
• Males: 55.4%
• Females: 78.0%
• Magnesium:
• Males: 65.7%
• Females: 75.7%
• Zinc:
• Males: 67.6%
• Females: 82.6%
Orthomolecular therapy consists in the prevention and treatment of disease by varying the concentrations in the human body of substances that are normally present.
— Linus Pauling, 1968

The following therapeutic modalities fit the definition of orthomolecular:
• vitamins
• minerals
• amino acids
• essential fatty acids
• fiber
• enzymes
• antibodies
• antigens
• cell therapy
• chelation therapy
• dialysis
• plasmapharesis
• hydrotherapy
• thermal therapy
• phototherapy
• electrotherapy (including electroconvulsive therapy)
• air ion therapy
• ddght therapy
• solar therapy
• acupuncture
• massage
• exercise
• biofeedback
• hypnotherapy and other psychotherapies.
Here is a list of 15 principles that identify the spirit" of Orthormolecular Medicine:
1.) Orthomolecules come first in medical diagnosis and treatment. Knowledge of the safe and effective use of nutrients, enzymes, hormones, antigens, antibodies and other naturally occurring molecules is essential to assure a reasonable standard of care in medical practice.
2.) Orthomolecules have a low risk of toxicity. Pharmacological drugs always carry a higher risk and are therefore second choice if there is an orthomolecular alternative treatment.
3.) Laboratory tests are not always accurate and blood tests do not necessarily reflect nutrient levels within specific organs or tissues, particularly not within the nervous system. Therapeutic trial and dose titration is often the most practical test.
4.) Biochemical individuality is a central precept of Orthomolecular Medicine. Hence, the search for optimal nutrient doses is a practical issue. Megadoses, larger than normal doses of nutrients, are often effective but this can only be determined by therapeutic trial. Dose titration is indicated in otherwise unresponsive cases.
5.) The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of the United States Food and Nutrition Board are intended for normal, healthy people. By definition, sick patients are not normal or healthy and not likely to be adequately served by the RDA.
6.) Environmental pollution of air, water and food is common. Diagnostic search for toxic pollutants is justified and a high "index of suspicion" is mandatory in every case.
7.) Optimal health is a lifetime challenge. Biochemical needs change and our Orthomolecular prescriptions need to change based upon follow-up, repeated testing and therapeutic trials to permit fine-tuning of each prescription and to provide a degree of health never before possible.
8.) Nutrient related disorders are always treatable and deficiencies are usually curable. To ignore their existence is tantamount to malpractice.
9.) Don't let medical defeatism prevent a therapeutic trial. Hereditary and so-called 'locatable disorders are often responsive to Orthomolecular treatment.
10.) When a treatment is known to be safe and possibly effective, as is the case in much 0 Orthomolecular therapy, a therapeutic trial is mandated.
11.) Patient reports are usually reliable, The patient must listen to his body, The physician must listen to his patient.
12.) To deny the patient information and access to Orthomolecular treatment is to deny the patient informed consent for any other treatment.
13.) Inform the patient about his condition; provide access to all technical information and reports; respect the right of freedom of choice in medicine.
14.) Inspire the patient to realize that Health is not merely the absence of disease but the positive attainment of optimal function and well-being.
15.) Hope is therapeutic and orthomolecular therapies always are valuable as a source of Hope. This is ethical so long as there is no misrepresentation or deception.
