The old adage ‘we are what we eat’ or more accurately, ‘we are what we absorb’ refers to the intrinsic link between nutritional medicine and the building blocks for regeneration of body tissue. In these modern times however our cellular, hormonal and neurotransmitter needs go beyond diet itself, nutrient density, food contaminants and digestive capacity.
Stress has become the biggest hurdle to health more than ever before, interrupting the delivery of essential nutrients to where they are most needed. We are all too familiar with the visible forms, such as; emotional, psychological, physical and circumstantial stress. However, hidden forms described as ‘metabolic stress’ have been emerging within our biochemistry beneath medical scrutiny.
In the early 1970’s the Pfeiffer Institute discovered a direct and profound role of specific nutrients in the production and recycling of our neurotransmitters and hormones. All of which of course govern our quality of life on all levels of our experience. When these specific deficiencies persist then mood swings, addiction, compulsion, attention deficit, hyperactivity and spectrum tendencies begin to emerge. Unmanaged long enough, they lead to advanced behavioural disorders, such as; schizophrenia, bipolar, suicidal ideology, autism, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, ADD, ADHD and Alzheimer’s.
Methylation and pyrrole metabolic pathways have been identified to significantly impact our fundamental biochemistry. Both genetic and acquired cellular mutations can actively disrupt the delicate nutritional balance required for our neurotransmitter and hormone synthesis and regulation. It is a rather complex biochemical cycle with particular complications for each individual but simply put … consider it a manufacturing engine in the liver that can run too slow to meet demand and can sometimes be compounded by co-enzyme (gateway) binding that will limit production … this is what is termed as ‘metabolic stress’. If any of these anomalies are present then it doesn’t matter how much meditation and deep breathing you do, it won’t go away.
You may have heard of other labels for this, such as ‘fight or flight’ or ‘sympathetic dominance’ of the autonomic nervous system. It is our instinctual survival mechanism to prioritize endogenous resources within the body to protect itself at all costs. It is activated by stimulus perceived to be life-threatening. Urgency, hypervigilance, panic, anxiety and repetitive thoughts all mimic the same stimulus and convince the body it is not safe. Adrenaline is employed to execute this over-riding alarm system, known as hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. It’s objective is to maximise energy, strength and our senses by raising blood glucose and redirect network signals from less priority areas, such as; digestion, immune and hormone systems (thyroid/reproductive) to boost motor functions that enable our flight or fight mode.
Here lies the crux of the matter!
The upshot of this whole story is the ‘ripple effect’ of being stuck in the metabolic stress mode 24/7. The body is designed to predominantly operate in the parasympathetic nervous system mode with brief moments of sympathetic stress, both positive and negative forms. It is in the parasympathetic state that all the important bodily functions are performed. The very long list goes on and on but just to name a few … digestion, nutrient absorption, immune protection, healing, detoxification, hormone regulation, acid/alkaline pH correction, inflammation control and pain reduction. So as you can see, those that are suffering from metabolic stress end up with many different health challenges and unpleasant physical symptoms. Ultimately leading to becoming exposed to serious complications and vulnerable to developing advanced conditions.
Fortunately, modern nutritional technology offers us the opportunity of correcting the highly specific nutrient deficiencies that match the metabolic needs of the individual. It is enormously gratifying as a practitioner to witness the obvious and tangible transformation that quickly pursues.
Have you ever wondered why you have less energy than your parents did at your age? OR why you are surrounded by people with allergies, mood disorders and digestive issues? The modern environment we live in no longer resembles the natural creation of its origin. It is now completely contaminated with chemicals, preservatives (digestion inhibitors), heavy metals and electromagnetic radiation (EMF). Not to mention antibiotics, vaccinations, synthetic hormones, pharmaceutical medication, genetic modification, chemtrails and hybridised crops.
Our native immune system has not been upgraded with software to process this new database of unnatural substances. To varying degrees, we are all exhibiting a confused immune response, attempting to preserve our living organism. Add to this the rising epidemic of chronic stress, which impedes both our immune and digestive function and we are left with a very slim margin to protect our bodies from infection, virus, disease, genetic mutation and cancer.
The language of the immune system is one of energetic frequency. All substances and organisms alike can be measured by vibrational waves in Hertz (Hz), also known as frequency signatures. Bioresonance technologies are designed to capture and deliver these signatures with adjusted potency. Recalibrating the immune response can be achieved by reducing these signatures to such a tiny, homeopathic potency that it no longer antagonises immune surveillance and thus offers the opportunity to gradually increase dosage until it is once again well tolerated.
Once you have corrected your metabolic pathways and stabilised your immune system we now step into the fun process of optimising our functional capacity. When the body regains it’s homeostatic balance without disruptive stress patterns or hypersensitive reactions to it’s environment, the stage is set for accumulative benefit that restores resilient tone to visceral organs and their primary systems.
Fortifying functional efficiency with holistically targeted naturopathic interventions stimulates a compounding beneficial effect systemically with synergistic integration throughout the body. Effective functional optimisation programs are tailored to compensate for constitutional ‘nurture points’ derived from identified genetic and/or acquired metabolically challenged systems.
Successful functional optimisation facilitates many positive side effects that promotes the body’s self regulating infrastructure. This positive feedback effect manifests progressive improvements that promote and sustain the following; endocrine (hormone) balance, lymphatic drainage, toxin elimination, weight normalisation, immune resilience, microbiome diversity, nutrient absorption and utilisation, cognitive equilibrium, emotional and mood buoyancy, adrenal vitality, nervous system tonality, restorative sleep and physical endurance. Having established your robust health you will experience a calm, balanced, capable and empowered version of yourself, inspired to align with your life purpose. So be prepared for a transformation, ready to take on your life vision with gusto.
