There can never be any serious health reform until Orthomolecular medicine is accepted as a mainstream way of managing the healthcare of Americans. Many of the critics of Orthomolecular medicine say this form of therapeutic nutrition is based on anecdotal cases. Just like the late Abram Hoffer PhD, MD has stated numerous times “there is no evidence that anecdotal information is any less accurate then clinical information.”

These same critics of Orthomolecular medicine always fail to acknowledge that The Office of Technology Assessment of the United States Congress estimated that fewer than 30% of the procedures currently used in conventional medicine have been rigorously tested. Karen Koffler MD an internal-medicine specialist is quoted as saying “the notion that everything allopathic medicine does is backed up by evidence is nonsense. We put patients on Heparin, a blood thinning medication, after a heart attack. No one, as far as I’ve found, has rigorously tested that, and we’ve been doing it forever.”

Anecdotal evidence is a basically uncontrolled clinical observation which provides a reason why a certain treatment protocol is successful or not. These uncontrolled clinical observations provide the impetus for the gathering of clinical data, and if done correctly will provide a scientific explanation why or why not a particular treatment is effective.

The vast majority of diseases should be managed in more affordable ways, based on Orthomolecular medicine which relies on optidoses (optimal doses) of vitamins which enhances the human body’s natural capacity for healing and uses inexpensive, low tech methods to manage most common diseases. The $65,000 question is why don’t the insurance companies endorse orthomolecular medicine as a means to lower healthcare spending? Just like Andrew Saul PhD has said many times “good health makes a lot of sense but it does not make a lot of dollars.”

That's right.  It is always about money not health.  In the USA alternative medical is suppressed.  Insurance companies will not pay for it and states will not licence it.  As a result the cost of medical treatment is three times as expensive as in the next highest cost country. That is up from twice as expensive in the 1990s.  And we do not get anything for the extra cost. Life expectancy is lower than in other countries. Waiting time is greater.  Complications and side effects are more common.  Wonder drugs have become ineffective requiring the development of new and more expensive treatments.   There are treatments for diseases that many doubt even exist.  In other countries people say they feel better and are generally more happy with the treatment they get.  In addition that high cost is just for the medical treatment.  It does not include the 20% that the private insurance companies take off the top.
