This therapy differs from diet therapy because it uses supradietary doses of individual micronutrients. There are large doses of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, hormones (eg. B. melatonin), amino acids, or various combinations used. The therapists believe that people have nutritional needs that go far beyond the recommended daily doses, and that diet therapy must be tailored to the medical profile of each individual patient. High doses of micronutrients also be used as biological Reaktiosmodifikatoren to influence inflammation and other disease processes. The doses may be administered orally or, much more rarely, intravenously.

Orthomolecular medicine, also called nutritional medicine, is a biologically based application. It aims to provide the body with optimal amounts of substances that occur naturally in the body (for example, hormones, vitamins) as a way to treat diseases and promote health. Diet is the main focus in the diagnosis and treatment. This therapy differs from diet therapy because it uses supradietary doses of individual micronutrients.

Documents and applications The promised cures include a benefit for a wide range of diseases (eg., Cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, autism, mental disorders). These treatments are often used, and many patients report a clinical improvement. However, there are no clinical study data that could demonstrate the utility of most of these practices. Among the exceptions include the use of high-dose fish oil for the treatment of hypertriglyceridemia (and possibly inflammatory and mood disorders); However, the use of high-dose fish oil in association with increased risk was taken for prostate cancer. Earlier evidence supported the use of high doses of antioxidants to prevent macular degeneration, but later studies saw it as no benefit. In addition, high doses of antioxidants can increase cardiovascular risk. Preliminary studies of high-dose melatonin to prevent or treat cancer show mixed results; further research is needed. If there is sufficient evidence of the usefulness, the respective treatments (eg. As high-dose fish oil) part of conventional medicine. Possible Adverse Effects doctors should be aware that high doses of micronutrients may cause damage such. B. can increase the risk of developing prostate cancer or inhibit the effects of certain cancer treatments, some micronutrients.
