Dr. Ron Hunninghake inducted into the 2013 Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame
In 2005, the Clinic’s founder, Dr. Hugh Riordan, also received this prestigious recognition. The Hall of Fame boasts other well-known names in the field such as two-time Nobel Prize winner, Linus Pauling, Max Gerson, and Abram Hoffer, all leaders in Orthomolecular Medicine, which follows the precept that preventing and treating disease should begin with providing the patient optimal amounts of substances which are natural to the body. “For every drug that benefits a patient, there is a natural substance that can achieve the same effect,” said Carl Pfeiffer, a 2004 Hall of Fame inductee.
