Announcing Interactive OMNS Video:
Q&A on niacin, light therapy (photobiomodulation), intermittent fasting

Dear Readers of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service,

I am delighted to connect with you and extend my heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support and engagement with OMNS. Your commitment to exploring the profound impact of nutrition and orthomolecular approaches on health has been inspiring.

Firstly, I want to thank each and every one of you for the many excellent questions we have received. Your curiosity and desire to delve deeper into orthomolecular medicine are what drive us to continue providing valuable insights and research. It is truly encouraging to witness such an active and informed community.

However, I must apologize that we are not able to answer all your questions individually. Due to time constraints, responding to each inquiry personally has become increasingly challenging. Please know that your feedback and questions are immensely important to us, and we deeply appreciate your understanding.

To address this, we are excited to announce the launch of regular interactive video sessions. These sessions will provide a platform for us to engage directly with you, answer your questions, and discuss the latest advancements and topics in orthomolecular medicine. We believe this will be a fantastic opportunity to foster a more dynamic and responsive dialogue within our community.

Our first session will be on Zoom on Monday, May 27th, at 9am USA EDT, 1pm GMT. During this session, the authors of the recently published papers will be online to highlight their work and answer any questions you may have. We believe this will provide valuable insights and allow for a richer understanding of their research.

Stay tuned for more details about the schedule and how you can participate in these sessions. Your involvement will be crucial in making these interactions fruitful and insightful.

Thank you once again for your ongoing support and dedication. Together, we can continue to advance the field of orthomolecular medicine and promote optimal health through nutrition and lifestyle.
