Over 2,000 years ago Hippocrates stated the two primary causes of illness: nutrient deficiencies and exposure to environmental toxins, which is as true today as it was then.
But today we are also dealing with a wide range of pathogens.
So nutrition plays a very important role in healing as does purification therapies to detoxify the cells of the body of stored toxins.
Therapies include Lymphatic Hydrotherapy, saunas, colon hydrotherapy and intravenous therapies such as vitamins and minerals, ozone, UV and chelation.
But the crux of the issue comes down to the function of the engines of every cell, called the mitochondria which make energy or ATP.
Lowered mitochondrial function, or a decline in energy, is the cause of symptoms and aging.
Toxins, pathogens and nutrient deficiencies reduce their function.
To improve their function requires specific nutrients, purification therapies to rid cells of toxic residues and to stimulate their function and numbers.
