Health education about the role of micronutrients in preventing diseases and in promoting health
- Health and disease are determined at the level of billions of cells, which compose our body and its organs. The most frequent form of cellular malfunction – and, thus, a precondition for disease development – is a long term dietary deficiency of micronutrients.
- Micronutrients, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, certain amino acids, plant ingredients and other natural bioactive molecules can’t be produced by our body and the only way to provide them is taking them up in sufficient quantities in our daily diet.
- If we do not get these micronutrients in sufficient quantities in our diet, thousands of metabolic processes within our cells are affected. Long-term micronutrient deficiency leads to insufficient production or function of cellular energy (e.g. for the electrical heart beat), collagen and other stability molecules (e.g. for bones and connective tissues), antibodies (for an optimum immune system response), many hormones, cytokines and other essential molecules for a proper communication between cells and a multitude of enzymes, the catalysts of cellular metabolism.
- Cardiovascular diseases are the most frequent diseases because cardiovascular cells consume vitamins and other essential micronutrients at a high rate due to the mechanical stress from the pumping heart function (contraction) and the mechanical stress on the artery walls closer to the heart (proximal arteries) from the higher blood pressure and pulse wave (pulsate blood flow).
- An optimum dietary supplementation of vitamins and other essential micronutrients is the key to the prevention and correction of the underlying cellular malfunction in cardiovascular disease and in many other health conditions.
- Micronutrients don’t work within the cell metabolism in an isolated manner instead they work together like an orchestra to provide an optimum cellular function. Thus, the research in Cellular Medicine focuses on the understanding of the mutually enhancing interaction of micronutrients in catalyzing the multitude of biological reactions among our cells. This interaction is called ‘micronutrient synergy’ and it is a hallmark of Cellular Medicine.
- As opposed to a lack of
-nutrients making up our regular food like carbohydrates, fats and proteins – which produce the alarm sign of ‘hunger’ in our body – a deficiency of
-nutrients does not produce any alarm signs. The only way we can avoid these deficiencies is by acquiring the knowledge about the essential role of micronutrients for preventing diseases and preserving our health.
- A key principle in Cellular Medicine research is ‘cellular regulation’, the precise understanding of how biochemical and genetic processes among cells are influenced and often regulated by micronutrients and other natural molecules. As opposed to conventional pharmaceutical drugs, which target the suppression of symptoms or the intervention of cellular metabolism by synthetic chemicals, Cellular Medicine targets to copy Nature and uses the principle of cellular regulation for preventive and therapeutic purposes.
Due to its compelling logic Cellular Health and Cellular Medicine can be understood essentially by everyone. Thus, the promotion of cellular health and cellular medicine is not limited to health professionals. It includes the participation of an educated public in building a new, prevention-oriented health care system.
Join us for our Mission
To protect health rights
Natural therapies be ignored and contrasted by political / health care system, as inconvenient to the business of the pharmaceutical industry worldwide.
To make education for all
Inform people about the progress of modern science regarding natural approaches to cancer, heart disease and other common diseases.
As a Nutrition Specialist my main interest is to help patients and healthy people and make them aware of their health and nutritional status.
I study chemistry at the University of Bari, in Italy. The passion for this subject and the curiosity to find out how the world is made have led me to cellular medicine.
