The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human body, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.
Thomas Edison 1902 1902
Conventional physicians and psychiatrists treat chronic disease such as mental disorders with expensive pharmaceuticals that may temporarily relieve painful uncomfortable symptoms, often with agonizing side effects which can prompt additional serious problems. But, too, drugs do nothing to resolve the underlying cause.
Because nutrition affects the body’s immune system, organ function, hormonal balance and cellular metabolism, many of these chronic emotional disorders and mental conditions can be traced to nutritional insufficiencies. When the deficiency is not corrected, symptoms begin to appear and lead to the presentation of an emotional disorder or other mental illness.
QuietMinds Nutritional Supplements have been developed as a high quality supplement that can be used to deal with nutritional deficiencies. Orthomolecular psychiatry and its treatments for central nervous system disorders such as bipolar, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, eating disorders and other addicitions have been with us for generations. However it was Dr. Linus Pauling, a two time Nobel Prize recipient, who first coined the phrase Orthomolecular in 1968.
Pauling’s definition was, “Orthomolecular Psychiatry is the treatment of mental disease by the provision of the optimum molecular environment for the mind, especially the optimum concentrations of substances normally present in the body.” Orthomolecular Medicine was expanded to be defined as “the preservation of good health and the treatment of disease by varying the concentrations in the human body of substances that are normally present in the body”. He sometimes appended, “and are required for health”, to this definition, and later noted, “the adjective orthomolecular is used to express the idea of the right molecules in the right concentration”
Many pharmaceuticals can be effectively replaced with multivitamin supplements under the administration of a good physician. QuietMinds, LLC works in conjunction with, and under the direction of, doctors who wish to make use of a pre-compounded, broad spectrum nutritional supplement, designed to assist in the orthomolecular stabilization mental disorders.
There is a misconception by some that nutritional supplements such as QuietMinds Supplements are not regulated. Before 1994, dietary supplements fell under the same regulations as food. But today, with the passage of the Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act (DSHEA) in 1994, the Food and Drug Administration has been granted authority to ban products that are proven to be unsafe, and does.
