Orthomolecular Psychiatry: Niacin and Megavitamin Therapy

David R. Hawkins et al.

Over the years a great many biochemical variations and abnormalities have been described in populations of schizophrenic patients. Despite the voluminous literature, very little of practical usefulness has emerged. Partly because of this, in recent years the work of Hoffer and Osmond and others have begun to attract attention, and a new therapeutic approach in psychiatry has been developing termed “Orthomolecular Psychiatry” by Professor Linus Pauling in 1968. This treatment method is based upon altering levels of chemicals normally present in the body.¬†Pauling defined Orthomolecular therapy as “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 human body.”
