(OMNS, Oct 3, 2011) Many of our readers have written to say that when they try to talk to their physician about using nutritional medicine, the subject is promptly dismissed. Furthermore, such dismissal is often accompanied with doctor statements such as, “I have not seen any good research showing that vitamins work therapeutically.”

That your doctor has not seen the research is probably true. However, the research has been there all along. The problem is that many health practitioners are often too busy, and sometimes too complacent, to look for it.

It is time to change that. Here are some highly-reliable orthomolecular resources online, for free access.

34 years of peer-reviewed research articles on therapeutic nutrition, including intravenous vitamin C and cancer:
http://www.riordanclinic.org/research/journal-articles/ or http://www.riordanclinic.org/research/

Instructional videos for doctors on why and how to use intravenous vitamin C:

These are also on YouTube at:

and

41 years of nutrition therapy papers (nearly 500 of them) from the peer-reviewed Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine: http://orthomolecular.org/library/jom/ The archive is easily searchable.
Peer-reviewed vitamin C research papers from 1935 to 1999: http://www.seanet.com/~alexs/ascorbate/ Clicking the link in the “subject” index will bring up a title listing by decade (yes, there are that many articles). Then, clicking the title link in the decade listing will bring up the full text paper.
The complete 7-year Orthomolecular Medicine News Service archive of over 100 peer-reviewed articles:

You see the phrase “peer-reviewed” above so often because it shows that orthomolecular medicine is well-established as safe and effective. If your doctor still believes that somehow it is not, s/he is behind the times.
And speaking of doctors, another request readers frequently write in with is, “Can you help me find an orthomolecular nutrition doctor near where I live?” OMNS has previously addressed this question, and here is the link to a number of helpful directories:
