Abstract

When speak about nutrition and feeding in colloquial terms, we adapt this to culinary sphere, that is to say, to the aspect and organoleptic characteristic. Feeding is the only way of we dispose to provide an appropriate nutrition. As all we know, it is one of the markets more manipulated from different areas, social, economic and mediatic. The consequence is a commercialized feeding and far from the designed function. Every time is bigger the number of diseases and these are presented to earlier ages affecting fundamentally to metabolic, hormonal and immunity areas, and the degenerative character as cancer. This reality should be as starting point to outline a different boarding of illness, and this is exactly it makes the Orthomolecular Nutrition. Orthomolecular Nutrition act by two ways: on one hand proposing changes in the alimentary behavior and for other elaborating treatments with specific active principles with recognized activity in front of different illnesses. Leaving of the premise that the illness is a multifactorial phenomenon they are more and more the professionals that join efforts to demonstrate that we are in the correct way. Nutrigenomic is one of the more recent supports that serves of great help to understand the indefectibly connection between illness and nutrition. The aims of this work is to propose a different boarding from the disease with contrasted and surprising results that it can be in itself a unique work method or a support for other therapies. But to treat any illness forgetting the biochemical impact that will present is, without site to doubts, to reduce the options that we will have to re-establish the patient’s health.
