This publication began as the Journal of Schizophrenia in 1967. After 1968, the name was changed to Schizophrenia, and in 1971 the name was again changed to Orthomolecular Psychiatry to reflect the increased scope of this type of therapy to other mental illnesses. In 1986, as it became clear that nutritional therapy was widely applicable to both physical as well as mental disease, the publication underwent a final change to the more inclusive Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine and is presently published as such today.
Since 1970, this quarterly Journal for health professionals has published the best of nutritional research and clinical trials. New articles describing orthomolecular approaches to health management and treatment of disease are accompanied by lively editorials, book reviews, letters and reports.
The Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine has led the way for a quarter century in presenting, far in advance of other medical journals, new health concerns and treatments including: Candidiasis; Mercury Amalgam Toxicity; Niacin Therapy for Schizophrenia and Coronary Disease; Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; Vitamin C and Cancer; Allergies and Behavioral Disorders; Drug and Alcohol Abuse; Tissue and Mineral Analysis; and Orthomolecular Treatment for AIDS and Cardiovascular Disease.
