After review, the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) has decided to maintain the standards for regulation of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and biomolecular orthomolecular practice. The text of Resolution 2.004/12, publicado no Diário Oficial da União desta semana, was approved in November, and kept the essence of the previous Resolution 1.938/10. In this, the text provided for the revaluation of scientific methodology within two years. The deadline was obeyed, the revised criteria and confirmed by the Council.

In the resolution published this week, the council notes that the terms orthomolecular practice, or other biomolecular assimilated not characterize medical specialty or practice area, and can not be advertised in accordance with the normative resolutions on the matter.

The standard also defines the types of treatment offered by orthomolecular practice, such as correcting nutritional and lifestyle habits. Are also mentioned procedures involving the replacement of medicamentosa deficiencies of nutrients and removal of minerals, when in excess or toxic minerals, pesticides, pesticides or food additives, as well as the principles that guide the removal. The resolution points out the methods devoid of sufficient scientific proof - sealed so.

The assessment of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids or amino acids that are part of the medical workup (science of signs and symptoms of a disease) and treatment of any deficiencies or excesses must obey the evidence backed up by clinical and epidemiological evidence that indicating beneficial therapeutic effect, the resolution says.

The document also seals the methods devoid of scientific evidence, including prescription megadoses of vitamins, proteins, mineral salts and lipids for the primary and secondary prevention, the use of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) to remove toxic metals, outside context of acute and chronic poisoning.

Veda also the use of EDTA and procaine as antiaging therapy, anticancer, and antiarteriosclerose for the treatment of chronic degenerative diseases. Prohibits further analysis of tissue outside the context of capillary diagnosis of contamination or poisoning by toxic metals.
