ZONULIN and Degenerative Disease

Plagues and infectious diseases that were previously the leading causes of death were largely eliminated with medical advances like vaccines and improvements in living conditions. Now, instead, we are plagued by chronic degenerative diseases. Several changes have occurred since the end of World War II that have contributed to the decline of our microbiomes and, from that, dysbiosis and the development of disease.

Metabolic Flexibility

Metabolic flexibility (MetF) enables us to quickly switch back and forth between bodily processes depending on the availability of nutrients. This ability allows us to store energy when food availability is high, and use that energy when food availability is low. Insulin is important in this process: its supply increases when carbohydrates are ingested, at which time it stimulates metabolic processes. Our daily cycle of fasting and eating is an example of metabolic flexibility, (ie, we fast while sleeping every night).

Copper and Estrogen Environmental DETOX

Copper and estrogen exist in the body in a direct relationship. When estrogen increases, copper increases as well. Ceruloplasmin, the protein that binds to copper, should also increase with these levels, but its efficiency can decline over time. When ceruloplasmin is not functioning efficiently, it does not pick up free radicals in the body. Those free radicals are allowed to roam around and can cause oxidative stress, and then diseases can develop.

With age often comes cognitive decline, of which memory loss is a symptom. Cognitive decline can result from stress, hormonal changes, sleep deprivation, and even exposure to environmental toxicants. Heavy metal toxicants, specifically mercury, can cause cognitive decline at any age.

Citric Acid Cycle Catalysts in Greater Detail

The contribution of homotoxicology to the progress of medicine has been pivotal because it links homeopathic concepts and laws to modern scientific knowledge. Dr. Reckeweg’s starting point was the study of homeopathic materia medica, but he enriched and added to it in various ways and on various levels.

Therapeutic approaches

"An original and essential contribution resulted from the great attention paid to the study of the cell, which Reckeweg defined as the primary and fundamental element in which disease originates.

An energy deficiency in the cell causes it to dysfunction, and an individual cell dysfunction is the start of a more complex pathology, which inevitably becomes an organic disorder.

When it enters a crisis, the cellular energy plant (i.e., the mitochondrion) begins to lack energy for any biochemical cellular process; in particular, the proteins, enzymes, and cytokines which are fundamental to the life of a specialized cell are not synthesized.

A cell that is lacking energy reduces its function to a minimum, uses large quantities of glucose via a metabolic route that does not require oxygen, pollutes the surrounding connective tissue, and progressively assumes the characteristics of a neoplastic cell.

This whole sequence of events which leads from normal physiology to dysfunction, to degeneration, and eventually to neoplasia, is initiated in the mitochondrion and, more specifically, in that sequence of oxidative reactions involved in pyruvic acid catabolism and ATP production.

It is clear how important it is to keep this sequence of key biochemical reactions as efficient as possible for both the catabolic and anabolic aspects of cell function. 

Patients with chronic degenerative diseases, which are those we encounter most frequently today in our natural medicine clinics, primarily need specific, selective stimulation of the citric acid cycle. Treatment with intermediary catalysts in a dilute, dynamized form offers an exceptional therapeutic opportunity in this domain.

The patient is assessed and, if this shows that he is in one of the cellular phases of the homotoxicology table, total stimulation of the citric acid cycle must be carried out, either by the administration of Coenzyme compositum or the individual catalysts if they are available.

If we consider that the organism often uses the building blocks of the citric acid cycle via many other metabolic pathways, it is clear that deficiencies of substances at various levels will tend to block the cycle once again. It is therefore useful to start therapy to support the citric acid cycle with Coenzyme compositum, at the rate of one ampoule sublingually or by injection 1 to 3 times weekly.

Children, in whom the citric acid cycle has presumably not reached a block as in adults or in chronically ill patients, can obviously start directly with the catalysts providing energy and a reactive stimulus to the organism. Although this is the best general strategy for using the citric acid cycle catalysts, it is also useful to be familiar with the role and consequently the clinical indications of the individual catalysts."
