The term "orthomolecular" comes from the root words 'ortho' and 'molecule', meaning 'correct molecules'. These are represented by vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and essential fatty acids that are essential for the biochemistry and functioning of the body. Two-time Nobel Prize winner, and molecular biologist, Linus Pauling Ph.D., first coined the term "orthomolecular" in the journal of "Science" in 1968. Pauling referred to orthomolecular therapy as a means of health preservation and disease prevention through varying the concentrations of substances normally present in the body.
ROHP stands for 'Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner'. This is the designation given by the IONC (International Organization of Nutritional Consultants) to a qualified healthcare professional who specializes in maintaining or restoring biochemistry and physiology in the body for optimum health and dis-ease prevention. Orthomolecular Health Practitioners assess the unique dietary and nutritional requirements of an individual and utilize a full spectrum of customized naturotherapies including: diet and nutritional supplements, alternative therapies and detoxification. Dr. Abram Hoffer MD, PhD a lifetime IONC Board member, whole-heartedly supported the ROHP designation. He asserted, "I am convinced that the word 'orthomolecular' is superb because it is accurate in describing what we do and it directs treatment to the use of nutrition and nutrients in optimum amounts. Orthomolecular (health) is the future!".
