phase of organic pathology
The plot heat up. This is the body's
blitzkrieg. This is a hot war. By heating the body some pathogens
are impeded and the immune system fighting the outside toxin
For a short time the cellular supply
of antioxidants can keep up with its own the arsenal of chemical
warfare that it unleashes. But unless these antioxidants are
quickly resupplied the hydrogen peroxide, superoxide radicals
and other toxic bullets brought to bear will drive up toxicity
in the local environment very rapidly. For this reason bowel
tolerance to vitamin C can double or triple during this Phase
as the body tries to minimize the damage it inadvertently
does to itself to rid itself of the outside invader. The pain
of the inflammatory event may produce enough gain to justify
this slash and burn approach. If so, the body may move back
up into one of the better functional states.
However, if the habits of the person
were marginal then they return to the prior Dysfunctional
state. If they had been in an Optimal state and this acute
episode was a normal response to an acute challenge, then
they can regain the Optimal state again with a little R &
R and nutritional, phyto-nutrient, acupuncture, or healing
food help. Those returning to the previous Excretion or Dysfunctional
stage have an opportunity to learn an important lesson. They
can choose to change lifestyles and pursue healing interventions
and over time reenter the promised land of the band of Optimal
health and the path of Living
Longer and Living Stronger.
The Excretion or Inflammatory process
can be stopped by drugs such as anti-inflammatory's, anti-tussives,
or anti-febrile's. Andy sometimes, even without the drug suppression
of the body's strategy, the inflammatory process just ineffectually
fizzles out short of the goal of scouring the original toxin
out of the body. In this case, the theory says the body may
move into the next lower Deposition Phase or enter into a
decidedly indecisive phase of chronic inflammation. This "in-between
place" is useless and harmful. There is good sense in
attempting to halt chronic inflammation, even with drugs.
But natural interventions that don't "throw out the remodeling
blueprint" are usually better as a first line support.
Interventions ,like cortisone, can produce dramatic turnarounds.
But often, the reprieve is temporary and the toxic side-effects
as bad as the chronic inflammation. Although the breadth of
biomedicine is awe-inspiring the culture of Industrial medicine
often does not respect the basic truth: the
doctor is just midwife to the healing the patient delivers.
The body continues inflammation because
the biofeedback loop still indicates the job is incomplete.
Other approaches using nutritional,
energetic and herbal methods can actually help the body stop
the Inflammatory Phase program in a more normal way and thus
complete the detoxification mission.
