The Healthy Cell Concept recognizes that health begins at the basic unit of our body: the cell. Cells come together to form tissues, which come together to form organs, which in turn form the body's systems. When we build a house, we know that we need a solid foundation; similarly, we need "solid" cells to serve as the foundation for good health.
Keeping our cells healthy is not difficult - it is simply a matter of incorporating the five principles of the Healthy Cell Concept into our lives.
Our cell food must come from pure, whole, natural and fresh foods. In some circumstances, it may be necessary to supplement our diet with high quality nutritional supplements.
Our cells cannot do without exercise to stay healthy. When we exercise, our cells are bathed in the nutrients provided by improved blood flow, which in turn removes toxic waste. Exercise provides strength, stamina, flexibility, mental alertness and is an excellent stress reliever. Thus, exercise facilitates the maintenance of good health in general.
Our environment is also of great importance. The water we drink or use and the air we breathe have an impact on every cell in our body. Ideally, we want our living environment to be clean and healthy.
The best defense against disease is our immune system. It is a marvel of creation that can meet the challenges it faces from bacteria, viruses, or even cancer. It can rise to the occasion if we give it the necessary nutrition, rest and stress management.
It has been scientifically proven that a positive attitude improves well-being and can even help fight disease. Negative thoughts can literally cripple our immune system and increase pain. A good mood is the best medicine and happiness increases our strength.
All vital functions, such as breathing, digestion and movement, are carried out by cells. It is these microscopic structures in our bodies that define life. Body systems are the result of the arrangement of cells that form the tissues, organs and supporting structures of the body. A body system is defined as a group of tissues and organs that work in synergy to manage a particular body function, which in turn controls a facet of our health. For example, the mouth, throat, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, liver and intestines form the digestive system, which converts the food we eat into nutrients and energy. The functioning of these systems and their components - independently and in synergy - determines our health.
There are many ways to classify body systems. We have chosen a classification into five systems.
The five systems are: the digestive-eliminatory system, the cardiovascular system, the immune-respiratory system, the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system (including the skin). A good way to take better care of our bodies is to become familiar with the basic functioning of these systems, the disorders that can affect them, and the risk factors associated with these disorders. Learning what it takes to strengthen these systems through lifestyle and supplementation choices can give us the key to solving our health problems and living well.
Although we define the body systems as separate entities, they work in harmony. To live well, we must realize this interdependence. If our body systems are not in balance, we risk losing our health. Often, health problems arise from this imbalance rather than from a problem with a particular system. One example of this is well known to many of us: lack of energy. We cannot say that this is the result of a malfunctioning of a particular system; rather, it is often a relatively minor problem, especially an imbalance between several systems.
