You are visiting the official website of the International Society
for Orthomolecular Medicine (ISOM).
This site is directed towards health professionals/scientists, interested in orthomolecular medicine.
The ISOM is the only international professional medical organization,
which maintains and protects the tenets of the founders of orthomolecular
medicine, dr. Abram Hoffer and two-time Nobel price Laureate prof. dr.
Dr. Abram Hoffer was the first physician who treated schizophrenic patients with high (optimum) doses of niacin and vitamin C in 1954.
Dr. Linus Pauling was the first who described the theory behind orthomolecular medicine in Science in 1968.
Dr. Pauling: 'Dr. Hoffer has made an important contribution to the
health of human beings and the decrease of their suffering through the
study of the effects of large doses of vitamin C and other nutrients
… I believe that a really great improvement in health can be achieved
through the ingestion of the optimum amounts of vitamins and nutrients.'
