Modern Western medicine has been able to achieve considerable advances in acute diseases over the past hundred years. Nevertheless, the number and severity of civilization-related diseases has risen dramatically.
Medical, scientific investigations impressively demonstrate that our health is decisively dependent on our way of life, in particular our diet. Food supplements should in no case serve as a substitute for a balanced diet. A good diet and lifestyle are the foundation for a healthy life.
In the perspective of modern, scientifically based dietary medicine (“orthomolecular medicine”), the maintenance of health and/or the overcoming of diseases is decisively dependent on a sustained and adequate supply of minerals and vitamins.
Modern production and processing methods can lead to severe deficiencies of certain minerals and vitamins.
Already with the first breath, our body is exposed to “reactive oxygen radicals” (ROS), which can damage our cells and organs. Our “power plants” of the cells, the so-called “mitochondria”, are particularly vulnerable.
If more than 60% of the mitochondria are damaged, disease symptoms occur. In practically all chronic diseases (arterial calcification with subsequent myocardial infarction or stroke, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, etc.), changes in the mitochondria can now be detected.
In closing, the preventive and therapeutic use of micronutrients can contribute decisively to maintaining your health and improving your quality of life.
