Nutritional medicine is a fundamental cornerstone of maintaining good health. Yet it is understudied in mainstream medicine. Much of the work in modern orthomolecular medicine began in psychiatry as orthomolecular psychiatry. Dr. Kunin gives the example of most schizophrenics who have damage to the niacin receptors in their brain, which can be repaired by giving large doses of vitamin B3 or niacin. Another example is what happens to the pancreas in vitamin B3 deficiency...it can be treated again with niacin.
The science of cell biochemistry is the root of orthomolecular medicine. In nutritional medicine practitioners study how cell biochemistry is altered by nutritional deficiences and toxic exposures. Modern medicine needs to expand its horizons to include cellular biochemistry and how it is modified by nutritional strategies.
