Vitamin & Mineral Therapy
The doctors at Rain City Integrative Clinic utilize supplements and intramuscular injections to administer nutrients to patients. They utilize many of the principles of Orthomolecular medicine to help patients treat conditions and improve their health. With few exceptions, the doctors at RCIC treat supplements and injections as therapy with a specified duration. Our goal is to help restore balance to patients and teach them ways to maintain it through diet and lifestyle.
About Orthomolecular MedicineOrthomolecular medicine focuses on an individual’s nutritional needs of a person, utilizing diet and nutrient supplementation to restore and maintain nutritional balance. “Ortho” means “correct.” Orthomolecular medicine normalizes the balance of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in the body. This has been called “megadose” therapy, as it can involve doses of nutrients in larger amounts than the body is able to make on its own.
