Stress is a silent killer. We often don’t realize how it depletes vital nutrients and leaves our system imbalanced and susceptible to dis-ease.
ImmunoNeuroEndocrine Stress – The CNS (central nervous system) and the various endocrine organs are linked in a dynamic manner through networks of reciprocal interactions that allow for both long-term adaptation and short-term shifts in environmental conditions. (Series Introduction: The immuno-neuroendocrine interface, 2001 Journal of Clinical Investigation Volume: 108, Issue: 11, pp 1563-1566 DOI: 10.1172/JCI14604, Shlomo Melmed, University of California, Los Angeles)
When any part of this system becomes stressed, the whole system is stressed, making it difficult for the whole body to function optimally. The results of these ubiquitous patho-physiological processes are all the conditions and symptoms that bring people to my office for help.
- Tubby Tummy Syndrome
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Cardio-Vascular Disease
- Chronic Fatigue
All the dualistic symptoms:
- Inflammatory pain
- Fibromyalgia pain
- Tension pain
- Cramping pain
- High/Low Cholesterol.
De-Stressing without stress
To understand ImmunoNeuroEndocrine Stress we must understand:
- how the Immune System, the Hormone System & the Nervous System must feed each other
- all the positive feedback loops and “vicious cycles” involved
- ADAPTATIVE CAPACITY = METABOLIC BALANCE + VITAL RESERVES
That can seem complicated, but the Nutri-Spec Metabolic Balancing Protocol makes it easy. Through this simple protocol we can boost your metabolism and help you increase your vital reserves.
Balancing ImmunoNeuroEndocrine Stress empowers you against environmental triggers that activate your personal patho-physiologies such as
- Pain flare-ups from out of nowhere
- Episodes of spirit-crushing depression for no apparent reason
- A violent eruption of vaso-vagal symptoms associated with Multiple
Chemical Sensitivities (triggered by minimal exposure to something
like a whiff of perfume or shopping in a gift store that sells fragrant
The total essence of NUTRI-SPEC philosophy can be simply stated as follows:
Every condition or disease can be defined in terms of its Patterns of Metabolic Imbalance.
In other words, rather than name and treat the “disease,” define and treat the pattern. In so doing you will have a patient-specific approach, derived from a scientific analysis, and based upon the concept of biological individuality.
It’s about balance
In our office we begin Metabolic Therapy with something we call your BALANCING PROCEDURE. This is the important first step to balancing your metabolism. Balancing your metabolisim will also reduce the stress on your immune system, your nervous system, and your hormonal system. The key to understanding this Balancing Procedure is one very important nutrient — sulfur. When people think about mineral nutrition, they always think of calcium and magnesium and maybe trace minerals such as zinc, but no one talks about sulfur. And yet sulfur — and particularly one special type of sulfur that is in the supplement we are going to give you — is more important to helping your metabolism produce energy and protect against all aspects of aging than all those other mineral nutrients combined.
There is no mineral nutrient that does more to help your body produce energy from oxygen than this special sulfur. At the same time no nutrient does more to protect your body by acting as an anti-oxidant than this supplement does. Your body’s most important anti-oxidant systems — the ones that protect you from premature aging, and protect you from inflammation — are made from this special sulfur. So, our first step for patients like you is always to make sure your body has enough of this special nutrient.
Reducing stress and building health
Building a foundation of health and a vital reserve of nutrients to support your body’s many functions is essential. First, until your body is fully loaded with this special nutrient, nothing else we do for you will work completely so we start with the Balancing Procedure. We give you a little bit of the supplement for a couple days, then you increase the amount for a few days, then you increase it a little more. At some point your body becomes fully saturated — in other words, it has all it can absorb and utilize — at which point we know we are done.
Your Balancing Procedure supplies you with one or two other supplements that work in perfect harmony with the special sulfur. These nutrients balance your metabolism. That is why we call this the Balancing Procedure. The two or three supplements from this procedure are what we call powerful “Metabolic Sparks”. They energize all the right functions of your Immune System and Organ and Gland systems in the morning and evening. You will be pleased with how strong and balanced you feel — more energy and less inflammation.
