Orthomolecular Therapies

For those medical conditions which require anti-oxidative treatment, high dose Vitamin-C, Multi-nutrient and Multi-mineral cocktails can be used to support a patient going through a disease process. Many cofactors are needed in order for cells to function efficiently in order to maintain vital homeostasis. Many of these cofactors may be limited or may not be in ready supply due to malnutrition or malabsorbtion.

Such illnesses may include chronic infections, trauma, chronic fatigue syndrome and cancer. We can measure anti-oxidant and oxidative stress in order to determine if you may be a candidate for these treatments with vitamins acting as a potential free radical buffer.
