Orthomolecular Medicine

Dr. Jimenez Orthomolecular Medicine Team.

Orthomolecular medicine is a form of alternative medicine that maintains health through nutrition and nutritional supplementation. The concept comes from the idea of achieving an optimal nutritional environment in the body and looking at how diseases reflect any deficiencies in this environment.
