Abram Hoffer was the first serious orthomolecular medicine practitioner in the 1950s. His therapies included niacin, and other nutrients, to address acute schizophrenia. Humphry Osmond, Carl Pfeiffer and Linus Pauling continued the work that was started by Hoffer. Orthomolecular psychiatry follows “Pfeiffer’s Law”, “For every drug that benefits a patient, there is a natural substance that can achieve the same effect.


Our orthomolecular mental health center is the only one of its type in the United States.


The Fundamentals of Orthomolecular Mental Health

All orthomolecular psychiatrists are medical practitioners and most have received psychiatric training however, orthomolecular psychiatrists reject the “psychiatric model” for treating mental health issues. Rather, a “medical model” is used, that searches for biochemical or organic, instead of psychological causes of conditions. Orthomolecular psychiatry is a division of orthomolecular medicine, a phrase that was coined by Dr. Linus Pauling. Pauling defined the method as preserving good health and preventing disease through changing the concentration within the body of molecules of substances which are regularly preset, several of them necessary for life, including amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and essential fats.


The human brain is healthy when it is chemical-free and properly fed.


Orthomolecular medicine offers a viable alternative to psychiatry. According to orthomolecular psychiatry, also known as OP, the human body is biochemical factory. When that factory doesn’t receive an adequate amount of raw materials ( nutrition ), or receives polluted or impure materials, malfunctioning occurs. Because the brain is a part of the body, its cells may also be affected. Nutrient deficiency and/or the stress of toxicity can cause mental disturbances according to the orthomolecular model. Mentally disturbed individuals may be out of touch as they can’t perceive reality. Their biochemically chaotic brains may view the world abnormally. In many cases, mental disturbances only cease when the nutritional setting of the brain is changed to correct the situation.


Imbalances in the brain can lead to psychiatric symptoms. We employ proven techniques to correct neurological balance.


Possible Causes of Mental Health Disorders

Allergies are believed by many orthomolecular psychiatry practitioners to be a cause of mental illness. Industrial development fills our air, food, and water with numberless substances that may be chemically damaging. Hypoglycemia is another one of the most frequent nutritional issues associated with emotional symptoms. Hypoglycemia, low blood sugar, is an interruption in sugar metabolism that is implicated in several mental and physical problems. Potential symptoms include insomnia, irritability, decreased sex drive, nightmares, violent behavior, crying spells and nervous breakdowns. Hypoglycemia appears to be easily overcome with the professional help of orthomolecular psychiatry practitioners.

What We Consume Does Impact Our Health and Mental State.

In Western society today, food industries have persuaded us to consume food products that have been altered from their organic, raw states into refined and nutritionally dead states, and even when this food is eaten until we are full, we are left without adequate nutrients. Processed food is unnaturally colored, sweetened, and chemically changed to fool us into actually eating it, as it would be inedible without all of the artificial changes. Physical and mental health are affected by malnourishment, however, since the brain uses up more blood oxygen and nutrients than any other organs, our brains begin to feel the consequences of biochemical nutrition deficiency before any obvious physical effects appear.


Nutritional pharmacology is no longer on the outside of medicine. Food affects the brain. Food affects behavior.


In order to address this pervasive problem, our orthomolecular psychiatry program offers clients orthomolecular nutrition and dietary therapy including organic, whole and natural food, we also recommend that sugar, caffeine, white flour and white rice are eliminated from dietary regimens. Since modern food processing strips most of the nutrition, an individual eating these foods often develops a vitamin and/or nutrient deficiency. Psychiatric symptoms are frequently associated with a lack of proper nutrition and supplementation.


We create personalized treatment plans to meet the needs of each client.


When a person becomes symptomatic in a mental health way, they are almost always given a psychiatric medication. Most of the time, medication is the length of traditional treatment. It isn’t uncommon for there to be no investigative efforts made in conventional treatment. At Alternative to Meds Center, we have found more and more people with accumulated environment toxicity, and these toxins disrupt the chemical relationships that are essential for mental health. These toxins include heavy metals such as mercury, arsenic, cadmium, lead, aluminum, pesticides and organic toxins.


You do not have to suffer from psychiatric symptoms or ineffectiveness of traditional medicine. We offer a safe, holistic, drug free approach.


Based on toxicity and neurotoxicity levels, we help individuals with chemical and heavy metal removal by providing targeted and personalized detoxification and chelation methods. Toxin removal techniques are combined with alternative mental health treatment and variants of orthomolecular medicine to create a state of emotional and physical balance. Toxic burden interferes with neurotransmitter synthesis. Neurotransmitters are chemical expressions of emotion, and any interruption in the neurotransmitters can emerge a range of emotional and physical health symptoms, including depression, anxiousness, chronic pain and even addiction.


We know how to stabilize the neurochemistry in a comfortable, effective way.


Our orthomolecular medicine practitioners discover which toxins a person has and eliminate them with methods of removal and correction. Alternative to Meds Center additionally provides counseling with cognitive behavioral therapists, professional techniques for medication withdrawal, nutritional treatments and supplements targeted to benefit each client, life coaching, ionic footbaths, colonics, chelation, sauna, acupuncture, massage, and other healing therapies for the mind and body such as exercise, yoga and meditation. Inpatient clients live in a luxury environment which is uniquely different from a hospital setting. We are an educational program that teaches people the correct art of mental health care. We encourage you to call us and find out more about orthomolecular psychiatry practitioners.
