Othomolecular Medicine

naturopathic orthomolecular medicine

The safe and effective use of nutrients, enzymes, hormones and other naturally occurring molecules is essential to assure a reasonable standard of care in medical practice. Dr. Strauss has relevant clinical experience having preceptored and mentored with Dr. Jonothan Prousky ND at his practice in Toronto, Ontario.

Founded on the science of molecular biochemistry, orthomolecular medicine establishes that genetic factors affect not only the physical characteristics of individuals, but also their biochemical environment. The metabolic pathways of the body have significant genetic variability and diseases such as:

  • Atherosclerosis
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Cancer
  • Schizophrenia
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Parkinsons disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • and many more....

Orthomolecular medicine, as conceptualized by double-Nobel laureate Linus Pauling, aims to restore the optimum environment of the body by correcting molecular imbalances on the basis of individual biochemistry. The term “orthomolecular” meaning “correct molecule” was first used by Linus Pauling in his seminal article, Orthomolecular Psychiatry, published in the journal Science in 1968.
