The right balance of healthy foods, vitamins & minerals
is essential to a proper balance in Life.
Dr. Abram Hoffer & Dr. Linus Pauling, 2 Nobel Prize laureate doctors that cured cancer & chemical imbalances of all sorts from schizophrenia to bipolar, depression, etc. with the use of Megavitamin Therapy, pioneered Molecular Biology
& Orthomolecular Medicine, the latter which is the correct balance of all these previous elements,
including LARGE doses of vitamins, Omega 3s, and superfoods
(1-10 grams a day of each main compound for chemical imbalances, namely Vitamins B3, C, Spirulina & Omega 3).
Orthomolecular is a term that comes from ortho, which is Greek for "correct" or "right," and "molecule,"
which is the simplest structure that displays the characteristics of a compound.
So it literally means the "right molecules". Molecular biologist Linus Pauling
coined the term "Orthomolecular" in his 1968 article "Orthomolecular Psychiatry" in the journal "Science."
Orthomolecular medicine describes the practice of preventing and treating diseases by providing the body
with optimal amounts of substances which are natural to it.
Ital living and orthomolecular medicine go hand in hand truly,
because you cannot get healthy if what you eat is processed,
genetically modified, deep fried, with refined sugar, additives, chemicals, preservatives & other toxic products.
Living ital, from the word vital, is the best way to ensure vitality and health.
Practically all diseases and illnesses come from poor or inadequate nutrition,
beyond the genetic factors and other contaminants in our environments; but even in the latter case,
those health problems can be reversed through ital nutrition,
just like any other disease. All pharmaceuticals have been synthesized
from natural plants and chemically compounded with poisons to offer us a fraction of what Mother Nature offers us through the raw plants and extracts, simply because Big Pharma does NOT want
to give you a permanent cure, they do not want you be be healed forever,
they want you dependent on what they sell; they cannot patent or profit
off of Nature legally, because they own no exclusive rights to plants.
It's the same reason they don't want to acknowledge all the natural cures for cancer
such as phoenix tears (both thc and cbd are anti-cancerous), soursop, moringa, and any alkaline natural fruit,
vegetable and herb, or megadoses of vitamin C, which Dr. Pauling & Dr. Hoffer also discovered.
Dr. Otto Von Warburg, the Nobel Prize laureate of medicine in 1931
and the man who discovered cancer, discovered the same year
that all we need to cure it permanently is an alkaline diet & environment,
because cancers and any other diseases and illnesses
can only thrive in an acidic environment. Beyond this, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn,
also a Molecular Biologist, and the Nobel Prize Laureate of Medicine in 2009,
discovered through her research that a vegan/ital diet caused over 500 genes to change in 3 months in a human subject, activating genes that prevent diseases & deactivating cancer-causing ones,
as well as heart-disease ones & various other illnesses. So the answer is quite simple:
most raw, natural foods are alkaline. Any processed, overcooked, fried, chemically modified
or GMO food, and any animal by-product or flesh, is acidic.
Some of you may read this and say, where's the proof of all of this?
Luckily, we live in the age of information (and misinformation too, sadly),
so you can easily confirm anything I tell you here. However, remember...
if you are looking for people discrediting this, it's also equally easy to find,
just like you can find people arguing that women wearing sexy clothes deserved to be raped
(ie animals deserve to be enslaved, raped and killed for food because it "TASTES GOOD"),
or immigrants are "ruining this country" (ie vegans/activists are "ruining this society").
What it really comes down to though, is that this isn't a cure some naturopath or shaman
or so-called quack doctor came up with,
although I often respect those people more than many "qualified" Western doctors...
this was pioneered by a double Nobel Prize laureate doctor
& a co-laureate psychiatrist & nutritionist with over 30 PhDs between them,
who founded molecular biology, published hundreds of peer-reviewed articles
& dozens of scholarly books & were literally
two of the Greatest medical & scientific geniuses in western history,
And it is further confirmed by two OTHER Nobel Prize laureates,
Who are also two of the greatest medical geniuses of the Western world.
Keep in mind, they also completely exposed the pharmaceutical & medical industry's corruption and greed and openly spoke out about this
till the day of their deaths, despite numerous threats and lawsuits.
So whatever you might read "debunking" this science, ask yourselves first...
how many nobel prizes & PhDs do those scientists have,
and what companies are they working for?
All I can say after all that is simply this:
I was diagnosed as Bipolar II, Schizo-affective, ADHD, OCD, PSTD & SAD:
before I went vegan/ital, and before I found out about orthomolecular medicine & nutrition
& started practicing and studying it, I was catatonic for nearly two years in a mental hell with voices screaming so loud
I wanted to die, but they told me if I killed myself I would burn in Hell forever and kept screaming in my ears
that I was the worst person in the world... I could barely eat, barely sleep,
was literally hallucinating all day & having vivid nightmares while I was wide awake,
my life was absolute Hell and I couldn't even talk to a friend or family member,
let alone go to school or have any sort of job. three different psychiatrists told my mother
I was permanently mentally disabled, and there was no way I could ever recover,
not even with medication. They told her I had to spend the rest of my life in a long term psychiatric asylum out of province, and she could come visit me once a month or so, but she should give up hope about me ever being remotely healthy or functional as a citizen,
student or professional, because there was none.
Yet here I am now, 8 years later, a 35 year old PhD/postdoctoral scholar
& decolonial teacher at one of the top 100 ranked universities on the planet,
a human rights advocate & youth mentor, an activist for several local and worldwide organizations,
A poet, graffiti & hip-hop artist with over 100 non-profit albums released & a dozen more in the works,
a translator of 2 bestselling novels (with 3 more up-and-coming), an editor,
an orthomolecular nutritionist who co-founded
a worldwide artistic/alternative education & mental health safespace collective
as well as this anticolonial resource website/music label (Revolt Motion),
and finally, a soulmate and proud parent of a Rainbow Warrior child.
And the best part of this is, I'm not even an anomaly. Dr. Hoffer & Dr. Pauling's patients
made absolutely remarkable recoveries at a 95% success rate without ANY medications,
but beyond this they became far more productive than so called "normal" citizens,
because we were meant to have a higher brain capacity and processing speed.
Many went on to do extraordinary work in the field of mental health & academia
at some of the most prestigious universities on the planet, at the head of the psychiatry departments.
Think of it like having a sports tuned racing car that needs large amounts of very high octane fuel
but instead all you've been told is that using 87 octane filled with chemicals and impurities will work just fine if you throw some more chemical additives in it. You can't get anything you need
out of your body and brain if what you're feeding them is full of poison & toxins,
both physically and energetically. And this is why orthomolecular medicine is (v)ital,
and can completely change your life.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY & ATTENTIVELY...
-If you are currently on any form of pharmaceutical medication do NOT stop taking it by any means.
Orthomolecular medicine is NOT about demonizing pharmaceuticals themselves or the scientists who produced them, although it is important to be aware that they are all marketed and controlled by some of the biggest
multinational conglomerates in the world, and are a trillion dollar industry that is very much used to manipulate
and deceive people into thinking they have a permanent mental illness and they can never be "normal" or healed.
They make immense profit off of keeping people in a permanent state of disease and that is exactly why they don't want us
to believe we can ever be entirely healthy, other than through their drugs. Make no mistake about this,
these are hard chemical drugs which have in all cases a lot of potentially horrible side effects (they openly tell you this) and should never be intended for anything else than a temporary or emergency solution, and in very limited situations.
That being said, if you are on several medications as you read this, the most important part, as in any addiction, is to progressively wean yourself off of them one by one until you get to one core medication which is the most vital to you, usually the antipsychotic. Weaning should be done by cutting the dosage by a quarter every month, combining this with many vitamins, superfoods, exercise/yoga, meditation and Nature walks as well as other healthy practices, and finding your own balance amidst this. If you get to a point where you feel unstable and unwell at a certain dosage, stay at the dose which makes you feel comfortable enough to continue bettering your health until you can try to cut down again. Do NOT wean off several medications at once, do one at a time, unless you feel very healthy and confident doing so and have a strict regimen. Once you are down to the core medication on a minimal dose and you feel stable enough, you can decide to wean off completely from meds and replace this with a third generation natural antipsychotic like CBD, in powder or liquid form. Please consult a plant based nutritionist, naturopath, herbalist or natural doctor for more information
on any of these substances if you can afford or manage to, and if not I am happy to assist you as well if I am available,
and will do so free of charge.
-Stay away from ANY animal agriculture product, organic, "free range" or not, domesticated meat, dairy & eggs are filled with the animals' suffering, fear and pain from their enslaved lives and torture, rape, abuse and slaughter they've been subjected to, which then becomes a part of you and perpetuates either more fear and suffering for you or psychopathic/predatory tendencies on the other end of the spectrum. "Free range" is a giant corporate lie that's been engineered to make people feel more comfortable with eating enslaved, raped and murdered innocent beings. You can easily look this up on youtube or elsewhere. The easiest analogy to grasp for this is, would you ever want to live a life as one of those animals you eat? Actually? No. No one would. Dairy farms are rape factories where torture and abuse are a daily occurrence (they call the metal sticks they use to inseminate cows rape rods for a reason), and day-old baby calfs are ripped away from their mothers to be fattened for a few months then slaughtered in the veal industry if they are male, or turned into more dairy cows as females, repeating the cycle of rape and abuse. The same goes for egg farms, even so-called free range ones unless they are local, small farmers you've visited yourself who don't kill the chickens. And even then, eggs are high in cholesterol & quite unhealthy in general. They also grind up baby male chicks alive in high speed grinders or suffocate them with gas in smaller farms because they serve no purpose to the farmers. All they want are female hens to lay more eggs.

Daily megavitamin regimen for mental health
B3/Niacin/Nicotinamide/Nicotinic Acid (Nicotine naturally occurring in organic/wild tobacco is a form of vitamin B3)
-start with 500mgs daily, will cause massive blood influx to the brain and body and cause momentary itchiness, redness of skin and heat similar to a sunburn (15-30 mins), once you get used to it and take it regularly this will fade significantly (twice a day makes it almost disappear)
Build up dosage in 500 mg increments every 2-3 weeks if tolerated,
until you reach a plateau of mental health which is optimal. (Up to 6-10 grams daily if needed, I take 4gs)
Vitamin C (natural sources, ideally made from rosehips)
-start with 1000-2000 mgs daily, build up in similar fashion by 500mg increments till optimal level is reached, up to 6-10 grams.
Omega 3s (not fish oil, those are expensive and often deteriorated and stale as research shows, not to mention overfishing)
Flax/Chia/Hemp seeds/Walnuts/Seaweeds, ground or soaked for optimal absorption, 15-50 grams a day of either or all three which equates to 3-10 grams of Omega 3s (5-17 grams for flax),
this triggers highly efficient & increased brain activity , lucidity & focus and helps with heart health as well.
Spirulina/Chlorella/Nutritional Yeast (NY is a cheese supplement, tastes like aged cheddar)
Very high in B12 (boosts energy and vitality) and protein content (50-70%), and spirulina/chlorella are basically
the Ocean's most efficient multivitamin superfoods, containing countless minerals and vitamins in very large doses.
If your brain is racing, you have trouble focusing or sleeping and life seems nightmarish far too often like it does with me, try some fair trade & organic natural herbs and medicines from local/independent sources to calm yourself down in a healthy fashion: ashwaganda, lemon balm & holy basil (tulsi), chamomile, skullcap, valerian root, passionflower, St. John's wort, sassafrass bark & extract (this is what MDMA is artificially synthesized & compounded from), kratom
(good for muscle pain & getting rid of opioid/hard drug addictions), kava, blue/white/sacred Lotus/Lily (Lucid dream herbs)
Any megadoses/shamanic doses of other natural vitamins such as B Complex, D, Folic Acid and many others like Choline & Inositol (Vitamin B8) can also be quite beneficial for optimal mental balance. Any fair/direct trade & organic superfoods you can get for specific nutritional or psychic/mental needs such as superfruits, Mycelium (Reishi, Chaga, etc) Maca, Mucuna, Ginseng, Ginko Biloba, Kokal (Cacao), ancient grains, or other natural chemical complexes such as DMAE Bitartrate, various adaptogens and natural nootropics are in fact part of the hidden Holy Grail of homo noeticus nutrition, or the evolution of humanity into higher consciousness. Stay away from slave labor products, organic does NOT mean it is fair trade. When in doubt, research yourself, and don't just trust the company website. Find an unbiased source.
Dr. Linus Pauling (biography)
Linus Carl Pauling was born in Portland, Oregon, on 28th February, 1901, the son of a druggist,
Herman Henry William Pauling, who, though born in Missouri, was of German descent, and his wife,
Lucy Isabelle Darling, born in Oregon of English-Scottish ancestry.
Linus attended the public elementary and high schools in the town of Condon and the city of Portland, Oregon,
and entered the Oregon State College in 1917, receiving the degree of B.Sc. in chemical engineering in 1922.
During the years 1919-1920 he served as a full-time teacher of quantitative analysis in the State College,
after which he was appointed a Teaching Fellow in Chemistry in the California Institute of Technology
and was a graduate student there from 1922 to 1925, working under Professor Roscoe G. Dickinson and Richard C. Tolman.
In 1925 he was awarded his Ph.D. (summa cum laude) in chemistry, with minors in physics and mathematics.
Since 1919 his interest lay in the field of molecular structure and the nature of the chemical bond,
inspired by papers by Irving Langmuir on the application of the Lewis theory of the sharing of pairs of electrons
between atoms to many substances. In 1921 he suggested, and attempted to carry out,
an experiment on the orientation of iron atoms by a magnetic field, through the electrolytic deposition
of a layer of iron in a strong magnetic field and the determination of the orientation of the iron crystallizes
by polishing and etching the deposit, and microscopic examination of the etch figures.
With Professor Dickinson, he began in 1922 the experimental determination of the structures of some crystals,
and also started theoretical work on the nature of the chemical bond.
Since his appointment to the Staff of California Institute of Technology, Professor Pauling was elected
Research Associate in 1925; National Research Fellow in Chemistry, 1925-1926;
Fellow of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, 1926-1927
(through this last he worked in European Universities with Sommerfeld, Schrödinger, and Bohr);
Assistant Professor of Chemistry, 1927-1929; Associate Professor, 1929-1931; Professor, 1931,
when he was the first recipient of the American Chemical Society Award in Pure Chemistry - the Langmuir Prize -
and Chairman of the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering,
and Director of the Gates and Crellin laboratories of Chemistry, 1936-1958.
In 1954 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry for his groundbreaking work, and in 1963,
he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He is one of two people in the history of humankind
to ever achieve this. The other is marie curie.
Pauling is a member of numerous professional societies in the U.S.A. as well as in many European countries,
India, Japan and Chile. Awards, medals, and honorary degrees were showered upon him in America and Europe,
and in addition he was elected Rationalist of the Year for 1960 and Humanist of the Year for 1961.
Several books have come from his pen, ranging from his most famous one The Nature of the Chemical Bond,
and the Structure of Molecules and Crystals (1939, 1949, 1960) via General Chemistry (1947, 1953),
which was translated into nine languages, to No More War! (1958, 1959,1962).
The subjects of the papers he published reflect his great scientific versatility: about 350 publications
in the fields of experimental determination of the structure of crystals by the diffraction of X-rays
and the interpretation of these structures in terms of the radii and other properties of atoms;
the application of quantum mechanics to physical and chemical problems, including dielectric constants,
X-ray doublets, momentum distribution of electrons in atoms, rotational motion of molecules in crystals,
Van der Waals forces, etc.; the structure of metals and intermetallic compounds, the theory of ferromagnetism;
the nature of the chemical bond, including the resonance phenomenon in chemistry;
the experimental determination of the structure of gas molecules by the diffraction of electrons;
the structure of proteins; the structure of antibodies and the nature of serological reactions;
the structure and properties of hemoglobin and related substances; abnormal hemoglobin molecules
in relation to the hereditary hemolytic anemias; the molecular theory of general anesthesia;
an instrument for determining the partial pressure of oxygen in a gas; and other subjects.
Dr. Abram Hoffer (autobiography)
I have lived a full, interesting and creative life supported by my family and many friends and irritated and spurred on by the hostile criticisms of a group of psychiatrists representing APA and NIMH. Since they did not know me personally I never took it personally although I must admit I would have preferred had they been supportive. I give my critics full credit for having delayed the full introduction of orthomolecular medicine into the medical world and for having denied life, health and happiness for innumerable patients. Supporters of old paradigms never realize how much damage they do
by their remarkable rigidity and adherence to old theories.
I was born on a farm in Southern Saskatchewan in 1917, completed High School in a rural school,
my PhD at University of Minnesota and Medical degree at University of Toronto. By the time I got my first job
I was 33 years old, had three children and was totally fed up with being a student. The last thing in the world
I wanted to do was to become a psychiatrist, then the lowest branch of medicine.
My wife Rose put up with these long student years while she brought up our three children.
Bill became one of the world’s best antiquarian book experts. He died 6 years ago from lung cancer.
John is a Professor of Medicine at McGill University in Montreal a great clinician and researcher into nutrition,
and Miriam is a dietitian at the Women College hospital in Toronto.
Rose died in August 2001 and since then I have been alone but absorbed with my family and my work.
I have the support of remarkable friends and scientists and all of us working together
will eventually overhaul medicine back to its interest in nutrition and in nutrients.
My work with schizophrenia and later in developing orthomolecular psychiatry depends on a series of events
that possibly cannot ever occur again. I began to work for the Government of Saskatchewan in July 1, 1950,
to organize a research division in psychiatry. The government was very hopeful that this would help them bring
our mental hospital into the twentieth century. Our two mental hospitals were classed in 1954 as among the three worst
in the world by Dr. John Weir, Medical Director of the Rockefeller Foundation.
My chief was very supportive because he trusted and liked me even though he did not understand much
about what we were doing. Dr. Humphry Osmond joined us from England.
He was a refugee from the stiff conservative research intellectual attitude of academic psychiatry in England.
He and John Smythies had formulated their M hypothesis of schizophrenia which was that it was possible
that in the body of these patients there was a chemical with the psychological properties of mescaline
and somehow related to adrenaline. Osmond brought this idea to us in Saskatchewan in the fall of 1951,
and to me it made a tremendous amount of good sense. It gave us a map to follow in pursuit
of the elusive schizophrenic toxin. I was Director of Psychiatric Research and was given full control.
I knew no psychiatry, which was a major stroke of luck because I did not know that what we were trying to do
was impossible. We had no medical school, another stroke of luck because we had no one who could countermand
the direction I wanted to follow. Our team developed the adrenochrome hypothesis,
which stated that adrenalin was oxidized to adrenochrome and this caused the disease.
It was the first super oxidation hypothesis in medicine and it called for certain biochemical tricks
to reverse this oxidation. We developed our research program with the help of the Rockefeller Foundation
and showed that adrenochrome is an hallucinogen and showed how it could be made and studied.
Later it was found in the body and is today receiving serious consideration as an element
in many degenerative diseases of the brain.
But we also wanted to treat our patients more effectively. All we had was ECT.
We deduced from our biochemical theories that large doses of vitamin B-3 and vitamin C might be therapeutic.
We obtained a large supply of pure crystalline niacin, niacinamide, ascorbic acid and riboflavin.
Our first patient Ken was a catatonic schizophrenic in the mental hospital run by Dr Osmond.
He had had insulin coma and also ECT and had been left in a coma and was dying.
We decided that he must be our first patient to be given niacin and hoped he would not be our first victim.
We used a stomach tube and gave him a large dose of niacin and ascorbic acid. He survived.
The next day he sat up and drank it and thirty days later he was well. He was discharged and remained well.
We were very fortunate. It is essential that the first patient one treats with any new treatment responds and he did.
We then knew that we had something but our conviction was not great.
After six double blinds, tens of thousands of patients I have treated since then, and dozens of open clinical studies,
I am convinced that what I saw in 1952 did represent a new way of treating these patients.
The question is why do we need double blinds, which never initiate anything and merely consume tons of money
and time and do very little to further progress in medicine. Under my direction,
we did the first double blinds in psychiatry and I felt perfectly justified in also being
one of the first to criticize this method. The adrenochrome hypothesis has been a map
that we have followed since then and it has been remarkably effective in directing our investigations
into fruitful areas of research. These include the discovery of the mauve factor, psychedelic therapy,
special clinical tests for schizophrenia such as the HOD and EWI test,
the discovery that niacin lowers cholesterol levels, better housing for patients,
better and more humane treatment of patients and more. Our research, and the use of mega doses of vitamins
led to Linus Pauling's formulation of Orthomolecular Psychiatry and Medicine.
And I now know a lot more psychiatry than I did when I first started so many years ago.
