Now that autumn is in the air, summertime recreational activities such as camping, going to the lake or beach, volleyball, and surfing begin to take a back seat and we look to focus on more prosai ...View Article

When we get sick, when we become ill, when disease overtakes us, the first signs are from organs, glands, and tissues, that signal the onset. As the being in the body, we experience disease as soon as enough cells in that particular organ, gland or tissue, begin to fail. When a sufficient number of muscle cells, or thyroid cells, or brain cells, or lung cells, or nerve cells, or pancreas cells, and the list is very long of all the different kinds of cells we are made up from, but we experience disease when enough cells are altered in their function in that organ, gland, tissue, or system.
Although there are many different kinds of cells, all cells can only do what that cell does. One cell = one function. Eye cells see. Ear cells hear. Muscle cells contract. Nerve cells conduct. Red blood cells carry oxygen. Beta cells in the Islet of Langerhans in the pancreas make insulin. But each cell does only one thing, it performs one function. And the key is that each cell has a very limited range of responses to its environment. A cell can only adapt in three ways – in other words, there are only three things that can be done to the cell:
1. Increase the cell activity – stimulate the cell to do more of what it does.
2. Maintain the cell function - feeding the cell needed nutrients.
3. Decrease cell activity – sedate the cell to do less of what it does.
Disease strikes cells like lightning in the forest strikes trees – it starts them on fire. Whatever the source of the spark might be, when disease begins, it first inflames some cells and starts them on fire. It is now universally recognized that most major diseases begin as inflammation. It appears that when cells are stressed, it triggers the inflammation response to promote healing. Once the work of inflammation is complete, and the healing has been accomplished, then the fire of inflammation subsides and goes out. If and when, the conditions that created the inflammatory response are not addressed, then more cells become stressed. As more cells become stressed, their function is altered increasingly.
The result of cellular impairment continues to grow, accumulate, and spread to more cells in the area. In this manner, we can understand the process that leads to ‘uncontrolled proliferation of cells’ (UPC).
Early detection of disease = the beginning.
Inflammation signals the onset of stress at the cell level. How early is this in the disease process timeline? This is the absolute beginning of disease. Inflammation signals disease in the exact manner that lightning striking the forest starts some trees on fire. The question for us is: “When lightning strikes the forest of my body and starts a fire in some cells, when do I want to know that?” When do we want to know that the cells in some gland, organ, or tissue are inflamed? Would we like to know that we are on fire – at the cell level – or shall we ignore the fire and let it burn until it affects a sufficient number of cells to impair the function of the gland, organ, or tissue?
The question is – shall we control inflammation now or attempt to treat the disease later – inflammation now or disease later – INODL. We never had this chance before. We now have the opportunity to control inflammation before it expresses fully as disease.
Meet inflammation – your new best friend forever. If you learn to control inflammation at the level of your cells, now, then you will never have to deal with disease at the organ, gland, or tissue level, later. We never had this option before.
Inflammation control can be the game changer that is needed in health care. The best way to treat a large problem is when it is still a small problem. The best way to treat disease at the organ, gland, and tissue level, is to control inflammation at the cell level and thus have a better chance to prevent the disease. This is the INODL program. Schedule a safe scan today and see if the forest of your cells has been struck by the lightning of inflammation. Are you on fire? Are you ‘burning down your house’? We have a new program for you. Use your lifestyle as your therapy – allow your cells a chance to heal.
