Maintenance Care – Sustainable Metabolism

Maintenance Care - Sustainable Metabolism When an individual has achieved foundational health (defined as sufficient detoxification to unburden the body’s cleansing systems, and cellular/tissue fortification to the extent of trophic repair and strengthening of specific gland/organ/tissue systems, and the harmonification of individual functions toward a whole body symphony), then efforts must be turned toward maintaining the body’s balance and long-term actions.  Lifestyle and stress consume body stores of minerals and hormones eventually causing the stores to become depleted and resulting in toxic accumulation, metabolic imbalance and hormonal inadequacy.  Reasonable maintenance strategy entails chronic reduction of toxic and metabolic body burdens, and ongoing repair and fortification of chronic weaknesses, some of which we have inherited genetically or acquired in early life due to various exposures or stressors. For some who have an advanced biological age, maintenance care represents the long-term chronic care required to gradually correct the body’s processes of degeneration.  [...]

Cancer – A Nutritional Strategy

Cancer - A Nutritional Strategy It is said that with cancer in the best strategy is prevention!  The truth is, according to Boyd a famous pathologist, the body is in and out of a cancerous state 40 times each day.  There is function of the normal body that is able to identify and control the development of cancer on a cellular level.  When this function stops working there is the possibility of developing a focus of cancer called a tumor.  A tumor is a much more difficult challenge for the body to resolve than the singular cancer cell. Prevention can be achieved by reducing the risk factors, especially those which create a chronic immune burden, toxic burden and especially estrogen concentration.  This is accomplished by lifestyle modification and by nutrient supplementation to support the body’s innate ability to detoxify, specifically phase I and II liver function and lymphatic and immune [...]

Autoimmunity – A Nutritional Strategy

Autoimmunity - A Nutritional Strategy Until recently the issue of autoimmunity was not even accepted within the scientific community. Although initially introduced in late ?O's, the mechanism of autoimmunity was considered radical until the late 1980s. Throughout the '90s autoimmune diseases proliferated until it seemed almost common to know a person with an autoimmune disease. Autoimmunity literally means that the immune system has developed antibodies to attack its own tissues. There are many theories as to why this may happen. This paper wi II present three of the main theories behind this event. Traditional medical approaches seem to concern themselves only with trying to control the secondary symptoms of autoimmunity instead of addressing the underlying causes, which are still enigmatic and mysterious. One possible mechanism of autoimmunity concerns the integrity of the cellular and nuclear membranes. When these membranes begin to lose their integrity leaking minute amounts of nuclear genetic [...]
