Metabolic disorders are another category of chronic and degenerative diseases that is increasing rapidly. Diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and a host of other glandular problems are nearly epidemic in the developed world. From a biological perspective, metabolic disorders lead to even more serious diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
With the exception of patients with rare genetic defects, metabolic disorders are caused by stress and chronic inflammation of the relevant organs and glands. By the time the metabolic symptoms appear, there’s been substantial damage to body’s regulatory systems. The issue fort the biological physician is therefore to determine exactly which functions are affected. We accomplish this through a comprehensive diagnostic process, which then serves as the basis for a personalized approach to treatment. In biological medicine we not only determine the underlying causes, we accelerate the healing that occurs when those causes are resolved.
The autonomic nervous system as connecting link
The digestive and glandular systems are closely related to the autonomic nervous system, which is also called the “abdominal brain”. It consists of two parts, the sympathetic and the parasympathetic, which control all our involuntary body functions and must be rhythmically balanced with one another for our metabolism and immune systems to function properly. At Swiss Biological Medicine Center we are able to measure this balance in a unique way via tools that assess what is known as Heart Rate Variability (HRV).
The mysterious nature of Alzheimer’s disease challenges patients and doctors alike. At Swiss Biological Medicine Center we developed a unique approach to Alzheimer’s that harnesses the power of the brain’s cellular metabolism. Our methods allow us to slow or even arrest the progress of the disease, and significantly improve the patient’s longevity and quality of life.
Affecting nearly 400 million people worldwide, the repercussions of Type 2 diabetes, if not effectively treated, can be terrible. From blindness, to loss of limbs, to damage in blood vessels and ultimately major organs such as the heart, kidneys and liver, the consequences of poorly managed diabetes are tragic. Fortunately biological medicine offers a very effective treatment.
At SBMC our goal is to establish the cause of the diabetes. In discovering the foundation of the problem, we are able to then take steps which may reduce or even eradicate the problem. In thoroughly examining and interviewing each patient, we can figure out, via their life patterns and genetics, what gave rise to their condition. Very often we discover that there are significant metabolic weaknesses and/or blockages in these particular patients that caused the onset of the disease.
So what is responsible for these weaknesses? Frequently, the patients lack trace elements that the body, and more crucially, the pancreas, require in order to produce a sufficient amount of insulin. Inadequate levels of chromium, manganese, amino acids or Vitamin B in the system can contribute to the development of diabetes. We’ve also found that certain types of food allergies, and the disturbance these cause to the intestinal walls, sometimes prevents the body from effectively processing sugar.
You must treat the cause of the metabolic disturbance. In doing so, we are encouraging cells to once again regain that higher metabolic function needed to respond to the body’s hormonal signals and thereby stabilize blood sugar levels. By following a comprehensive nutritional and supplement based course of treatment, ultimately addressing the lack of vitamins and trace elements in the body, we have seen patients improve dramatically. Their pancreatic function and the insulin production therein is elevated.
