Orthomolecular wisdom

“Nutrition needs to be looked at, not as a means of preventing specific deficiency disease, but as a means of contributing to the overall health of the person and his or her resistance to chronic disease.

Got nutricosmetics?

“Skin is the largest and most visible organ in the body. It’s a great indicator of general health. In order to look right you do need to eat right.

– Jeanette Jacknin, M.D.
