Anxiety Therapy the OrthoMolecular Way

People often ask how I got better and where I get my information from.  Most of my information came from 10 years of practice, seminars, books, and my biggest teacher … personal experience!  There wasn’t a workshop that could’ve prepared me for when I got sick in 2007. I was a supposed “expert” on natural health and I was the one who was knocked on my butt from sickness!  When people come to me know asking for places to learn more about my position on health, I encourage them to learn more about Functional Medicine & OrthoMolecular Psychiatric Medicine for panic and anxiety therapy.

OrthoMolecular Psychiatric Medicine is part of Functional Medicine, this post I am focusing on OrthoMolecular. The next post will focus on Functional.  Medical Doctors, Osteopathic Doctors, Chiropractic Doctors, and some Naturopathic Doctors are the professionals who are trained in this philosophy.  I adore the medical and chiropractic doctors in my life who have helped me by practicing this way: Ann Stanger MD, Joel Lopez MD, William Hobbins MD, Chris Danduran DC, Michale Buskohl DC, and Diana Sabella DC.

Orthomolecular Psychiatric Medicine is not like aliopathic, it doesn’t just treat symptoms. It treats causes. When I was sick, I knew that if I took drugs I would only be masking a symptoms.  Sure Xanax, Wellbutrin, Prozac and other medications of the like would help me feel better – superficially. They did not fix the reason why I had anxiety, adrenal fatigue, blood sugar imbalances, food allergies, and panic attacks.  There was an ENORMOUS underlying issue – imbalance and deficiency.

This is a great definition from International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine website:  “Orthomolecular medicine, as conceptualized by double-Nobel laureate Linus Pauling, aims to restore the optimum environment of the body by correcting imbalances or deficiencies based on individual biochemistry, using substances natural to the body such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements and fatty acids. The term “orthomolecular” was first used by Linus Pauling in a paper he wrote in the journal Science in 1968. The key idea in orthomolecular medicine is that genetic factors affect not only the physical characteristics of individuals, but also to their biochemical milieu. Biochemical pathways of the body have significant genetic variability and diseases such as atherosclerosis, cancer, schizophrenia or depression are associated with specific biochemical abnormalities which are causal or contributing factors of the illness.

You can also find more information from OrthoMolecular.org, OHM Society, and Linus Pauling Institute.  My Let’s Get Physical: Anxiety is NOT All In Your Head ebook was written based on my journey of helplessly ill to recovery using OrthoMolecular principles.  It is the step by step process of what worked that lead me to getting better, I left out all the stuff that didn’t work!

    There are some docs in Chicagoland for sure. I wrote this Note of Facebook so that you could use it for reference http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=105644406143518. My personal doc is in Madison and I drove that far because it was worth it. They aren’t easy to come by! Pfeiffer Institute is also great, they are in the south suburbs.

    Hope this helps!
