What is orthomolecular therapy

Orthomolecular therapy uses nutritional-, lifestyle- and supplementation advise, with the aim of promoting, supporting and optimizing the self-healing capacity in the body.

Your body needs essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids (proteins), trace elements and phytonutrients and the right fats. A lack of these can cause ailments and illness. With orthomolecular therapy we fill the gap, this works both curatively and preventively. With the right combination of nutrition, exercise, supplementation, and some lifestylechanges, recovery often occurs and worse can be prevented.

As an orthomolecular therapist I will look for the cause of your complaints.
Through the case history (intake), many complaints can be identified and nutritional deficiencies can be detected. After the intake (anamnesis) you will receive a nutritional, lifestyle and supplementation advice. These recommendations are well substantiated and have a scientific basis.

Orthomolecular therapy can have a beneficial effect on most of the chronic conditions and other unclear health complaints, such as:

  • Stress, burnout,
  • Sleep problems,
  • Headache, migraine,
  • Fatigue (chronic) (CFS)
  • Fibromyalgia and other autoimmune diseases,
  • ADHD, mood changes, (winter) depression,
  • Intestinal complaints, irritable bowel syndrome (PDS), ulcerative colitis,
  • Crohn’s disease, arthritis / joint problems / osteoporosis,
  • Diabetes (diabetes), insulin resistance,
  • Hormonal disorders (PMS and thyroid problems) being overweigh,
  • Skin problems, eczema, allergies, reduced resistance and more similar complaints.

But supplementation may also be necessary for (top) athletes, people with heavy professions, the elderly and children.

Orthomolecular medicine is based on the latest scientific insights into nutrition and what certain nutrients, up to the cell level, do in your body.
By striving for an optimal balance of nutrients, the basic conditions for a healthy body and a powerful mind are given.
