Since ancient times, humans have known that food and the environment are interconnected with an individual’s health status, and have used various animal and plant foods for medicinal purposes.
With the advancement of science and especially after the determination of the human DNA sequence (Human Genome Project), questions have emerged on whether the interaction between genes and food bioactive compounds could positively or negatively influence an individual’s health.
By combining different academic fields like biochemistry, physiology, nutrition, genetics, epigenetics, and other metabolic sciences we have discovered and can explain the existing, complementary interactions between genes and nutrients at a molecular level.
The exploration of these interactions (gene-nutrient) can encourage the prescription of customized diets according to an individual’s genotype.
This creates the possibility of alleviating the symptoms of current diseases, or to prevent future illnesses through nutrition, especially in areas where clinical medicine falls short.
These areas include the chronic / non-communicable diseases, which are deemed as a major world health problem, and according to the World Health Organization (WHO) are expected to sky-rocket the upcoming decades .
These 3 factors are the basis of any properly designed natural healing protocol.
Most often, they are capable to manage or even reverse serious chronic, degenerative conditions. From cardiovascular disease, Hashimoto’s, Fibromyalgia and Lupus to Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Disease manifests as the result of toxicity and/or deficiency- conditions which both create imbalances within the body’s primary homeostatic systems.
These include: 1) Autonomic 2) Microbiome 3) Oxidative 4) Endocrine imbalances.
Depending on the severity of the issue, the person should follow the protocol for a few months, to some years, to a lifetime in some cases.
People who are healthy and vibrant tolerate stress better, are more productive, make more money, contribute more to society, live happier and richer lives.
