Have you heard of orthomolecular medicine? If not, I highly suggest you look it up. It is absolutely fascinating and can honestly help support people suffering from some pretty significant conditions. Orthomolecular medicine is defined by Webster’s dictionary as “a theory according to which disease may be cured by providing the optimum amounts of substances (such as vitamins) normally present in the body” (Merriam-Webster, n.d.). Yes, these vitamins and supplements are present in the body already, but not in the amounts needed to fight things off when the body is taxed and burdened.
Vitamin and Mineral Deficiency
I will be going more into orthomolecular medicine in another episode, but today I want to chat with you about my favorite supplements. I started out the episode with a definition of orthomolecular medicine because it is the exact reason why I do not believe that we can live on diet alone! Almost every single issue or ailment we are struggling with as a society can be traced back to some sort of vitamin or mineral deficiency.
Check out some of these Quotes around the Issue:
Grab your common sense essential oil for today’s episode and either place 5-10 drops in your diffuser, or 2 drops on the palm of your hand, rub your palms together, and breathe in deeply three to four deep breaths. Common sense is an oil that helps to open your mind up to hear new information and to be open to that information. If you do not have common sense essential oil, grab frankincense instead.
