Orthomolecular Health and Medicine (OHM)

“Orthomolecular medicine,” as coined by Linus Pauling, is the practice of preventing and treating disease with all-natural substances, such as vitamins, amino acids, electrolytes, and fatty acids.

Weston A. Price Foundation


In the 1930s, Weston Price, DDS studied the diets of native populations still eating natural, whole foods. He noticed that not only were the natives healthier, but also they had fewer cavities and straighter teeth.

One of his major works is: Nutrition and Physical Degeneration (1939)

Linus Pauling Institute of Medicine

Linus Pauling, Ph.D., was a Nobel Laureate for chemistry in 1954 and for peace in 1962. The Linus Pauling Institute, established in 1973, is dedicated to research in orthomolecular medicine, which is the practice of preventing illness with natural substances.

Some of his articles include:

  • Vitamin C and the Common Cold (1970)
  • How to Feel Better and Live Longer (1986)

What is Xylitol?


Xylitol is a natural sugar alcohol, found in vegetables and fruits. It has both superior nutritional benefits, as well as antibacterial properties that help prevent dental cavities, and fight ear and sinus infections. Xylitol is available as a nasal wash (Xlear), and also as crystalline granules (XyloSweet, MiracleSweet). Xylitol is an excellent alternative to sugar, and can be measured, mixed, and eaten just as one would with table sugar.
