This new century is full of surprises; the revolt of the people against establishments, new discoveries in medicine  Sorochan: RNA controls disease 2013, nano-technology, problems with health care and new ways of thinking about our wellbeing.  The world and our way of life are changing rapidly!

This article is about the emerging new theory of wellbeing. It is targeted at the general population. 

World health organization defined health as: "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."  WHO Health definition 1948

Western medicine really has no definition of health!  Renton's perception illustrates this:

"Modern medicine has changed the fate of man, no doubt about that. Unfortunately, this magical new medicine is based on a very narrow scientific model of symptom, diagnosis and treatment (through surgery or medication). This model is so restricted that it blatantly ignores any alternative therapies and other entire medical systems. It is highly applicable to the battlefields of 18th century Europe or the disease-ridden streets of mediaeval towns and cities. Critical care, where lives are on the line, solely relies on such a medical approach. It is the walking wounded that modern medicine forgot. It’s chronic disease, not life threatening injury, that plagues our society and drains public funds. For this eventuality, we are utterly ill-equipped and we are running out of options very quickly!" Renton: Pitfalls of modern medicine 2015

There have been numerous attempts to update health definition to changing times.  Nevertheless, the definitions have not really changed that much from the World Health organization [WHO] definition.  Most definitions of health and wellness focus on the traditional definition that is difficult to measure, is based on lack of wellness promotion in health insurance coverage and simply ignore the real changes taking place in the body each day.  New research information since 2000 has provided many important medical and biological physiological advancements that bring a change in our thinking about what health really is, how we can achieve optimal wellbeing and how we can foster a positive lifestyle.

These new changes include:

A few things have not changed: like the evolving overweight and obesity crisis, inadequate recommended daily allowances, lack of research about nutritional co-factors, nutritional supplements, medical thinking and practice about health, lack of medical recognition that food is the best medicine and lack of political support for preventing diseases and illnesses and promoting wellbeing.  The health status of the general population has got worse, not better!  The new theory of wellbeing has the potential to change all this in the near future.

Modern medicine has disappointed most people. People and their governments have invested billions of dollars with very little to show in terms of better health and less economic cost. That health care systems in most countries are not working  US hea care in crisis  US insurance crisis  Greece and Financial debt  France hea care in trouble  is an opportunity for change and improving the current health care system.

The nature of the health care system aside, the real health problems are not medical doctors, health care providers or hospitals, but instead, the behaviors of people --- their lack of self discipline to exercise and eat properly. The majority of people have bad behaviors and habits and lack the acumen to make wise choices.  Our American culture has spawned a disease culture.

It is not just that the health care system in United States is failing, It is not working in most of the world countries. So is there a solution? .... Yes, this the time to explore a possible new new theory. It is Nutrient Balancing - wellbeing - lifestyle.

Emerging theory of Nutrient Balancing - well-being - lifestyle:

"A primary goal of every nutritional balancing program is to replace missing vital minerals in our bodies. Everyone today is low in these important nutrients. One can say there is mineral starvation, no matter how many calories or how much protein one eats. Replenishing minerals is not that easy. Medical books say that to just replenish one mineral can take 9-12 months. We seek to replenish at least 25 minerals, so this is an involved process. However, there are ways to speed up the process. Some may sound unusual, but they work."  Wilson: Remineralizing body 2016

human machine2 The Nutritional Balancing - Wellbeing - Lifestyle theory has a lot of merit as it recognizes the human body as a delicate and precise nano-tech machine that has trillions of cells communicating with each other.  It is much more complex as an electro-chemico-resonating physiological body than medical science acknowledges.  This theory can deal with the numerous diseases and disorders that have mushroomed since 1970.  It should be pointed out that while such a theory is in its infancy today, it should have serious consideration as a theoretical model.  This author incubates such a possibility within this article.

This theory is supported by new scientific information since 2000 and also information about Eck's nutritional and lifestyle balancing that has been overlooked for the past 50 years. Sorochan: Nutritional balancing 2016

The theory focuses on balancing ratios of mostly minerals, although not discounting that vitamins and amino acids [protein] and their co-factors [helpers] are also part of the balancing act.  When one mineral loses its balance, it affects all the other minerals and factors. This is why balancing nutrients is so delicate, precise and difficult.

There are several key concepts that you should be aware of:

1. food is a major change agent, not drugs or medical interventions.

2. minerals are a major balancing phenomenon; acting as synergistic-antagonistic reactions.

3. end result of nutritional balancing is optimal wellbeing.

4. life style changes needed to support continuous wellbeing.

5. an unbalanced mineral affects all other mineral ratios and levels, that in turn, also unbalances other related vitamins and amino acids.

6. impact change of one factor affects the whole body.

7. body and life are seldom balanced. The balancing act, dependent upon food, takes place all the time.

8. an excess of one mineral may inhibit the bio-organic chemical activity of an opposing mineral(s).

9. Re-mineralization:  human beings can transmute some minerals or elements into other elements. This can be very helpful to re-mineralize the body. Nutritional balancing programs help restore this ability of the body.  Wilson: Remineralizing body 2016

"Development: Symptom removal and eradication of diseases of all kinds are wonderful, but one can go beyond this level of healing. Nutritional balancing is development science. Development is a unique process that is natural to human beings, but does not occur often because the bodies are malnourished, and drug medicine and most nutritional programs do not provide the nutrients and conditions needed for development. Development increases one’s mental functioning, improves the immune response far above that which most people achieve with any other healing program, and can extend life."  Wilson: Introduction to NB 2016

Collectively, all the nutrients, in both food and supplements, would reach the somatic cells in adequate amounts; thereby enabling optimal functioning of the body.  Such a bio-electrical-chemical process takes place throughout the body at the same time.  This also means that all body cells and organs adjust and heal at the same time.  Food, as nutrients, is the major change agent, not drugs or medication nor medical intervention.  The body has its own ability, through a silent and hidden process, like homeostasis and adaptation, to bring about change and healing.

Below is a simplistic illustration of a weight scale, that displays how intervening factors may be linked together.  The illustration below displays a scenario when body and life are balanced ... a very rare occasion.  The body is rarely balanced because of the constant need to balance the nutritional ratios and level amounts that are, in turn, changing most of the time due to the different foods we ingest and their changing nutritional content. The imbalance can be severe when most persons today are overweight or obese, or indulge in a lifestyle of eating sugar sweetened foods, processed foods and take out fast foods.  Thus, food is considered to be the most significant and impacting balancing agent.

Food symbolizes that nutrients, basically minerals, are the most important of all co-factors in helping to balance the body machine and wellbeing of the body.  If one were to attain optimal wellbeing, then the human body would be an interconnected chemical-electronic-resonating machine with all body parts and systems and synchronized to each other.  Body systems, like the immune, colon bacteria, enzyme and hormone systems and so on, are inter-connected with food and work as a whole body system.  This is illustrated below.

Other factors [helpers] in this balancing scale have been identified as immunity, balance of colon bacteria, balancing body pH, exercise, fine-tuning body enzymes and hormones, energy from sunshine, oxygen needs and sleep; not necessarily in that order.  Additional co-factors may have been left out.  When mineral ratios are altered even slightly, the balance of all the other cofactors or helpers is unbalanced [the body balance is tilted]  and visa versa.  It currently takes many months and even years to restore this delicate balance.

After food, the next factors impacting wellbeing are probably immunity and colon bacteria.  New research since 2000 has focused on bacteria in the colon.  A good immune system comes from the balance of good [80%] and bad [20%] bacteria in the colon.  Ofcourse, you are aware that you are eating for both your body and the colon bacteria.  Eating junk foods, like processed and sugar foods, feed the bad bacteria and these can contribute to constipation, feeling bloated, leaky gut and other health issues.  Recent information points out that the majority of the population may have some degree of leaky gut and not be aware of it. Leaky gut is important because of the many diseases and disorders that are linked to it, like autism, Alzheimer's, diabetes, heart disorders, MS, chronic fatigue, arthritis, lupus, skin disorders, fibromyalgia and cancer. And eating fresh vegetables and fruit, nuts, a minimum of white meat and drinking adequate amount of water provides food for the the good bacteria and facilitates a soft bowel movement.

Other factors in the illustration can also impact on nutrient balance.  When one of these is out of whack, then this distorts the delicate fine tuning of all the nutrients.  The illustration highlights vitamin D with a sun background.  Vitamin D is not a vitamin, it is a hormone that comes from the sun's UVB [rays] that cause the cholesterol in the skin to eventually be synthesized into vitamin D-3.  But sunshine is a much overlooked and ignored contributor to optimal wellbeing.  It has been given a bad rap for incorrectly causing skin cancer.  Sunshine activates the pineal gland which has many functions not as yet identified by the scientific community.  But science does acknowledge the pineal gland as regulating night-day activities and regulating sleep.

Exercise is critically important for a number of reasons, only a few of which will be covered herein. Exercise prevents diseases.  USDHHR: Exercise prevents diseases 2002 Exercise opens the lungs and bronchial tube where there is a lot of dead air; that bacteria like to live in.  Yes, exercise moves the dead air out and limits bacteria in the respiratory system, so important in preventing respiratory infections like pneumonia and colds; especially in senior citizens.  Exercise releases endorphins that make you feel good and also strengthens the muscular system.  Exercise injects, into the body, oxygen that all cells need and especially the heart and brain.  Bacteria die in the presence of oxygen.

Body pH of about 7.2 is important as an environment for nutrient balancing.  A red meat diet contributes to an acid environment that helps bad bacteria to flourish.  The healthy body needs enzymes to break down food in the digestive system.  Hormones determine the functioning of glands.  Inadequate diet not only undermines their functioning, but also causes disruption of a nutrient balance in the body.

The foods we eat determine the blood and body pH.  The wrong food can evolve an acid pH that, in turn, evolves excessive amounts of unstable superoxides. These superoxide's stabilize and become free radicals that are poisonous to our body. Our body does have the mechanisms to get rid of free radicals.  When free radicals overwhelm the body, the immune system is compromised and we acquire autoimmune, degenerative diseases and disorders.

The body attempts to maintain a healthy body by removing free radicals from the body. This is done by antioxidants that neutralize the free radicals.

Fruits_Veg.jpg Unfortunately, humans lose most of their ability to provide primary antioxidants or superoxide dismutase or SOD early in life.  We can compensate for this innate loss by eating fresh fruits, vegetables pH Foods illustrated and flax seeds rich in certain antioxidants.  Choosing foods according to whether they are acid forming or alkali forming can have a major impact on one's ability to heal and maintain health. 

But food antioxidants provide a very small amount of needed antioxidants.  Additional help in making the body more alkali is to eat less meat.  But these eating attempts to provide more antioxidants to minimize free radicals is miniscule to the amount needed.  Our bodies survive in a deficit!

We need orthobiosis, or the right and proper style of life, to attain and maintain adequate health and minimize the risks of disease and disability!  Although we lack good supplements to provide the proper amount of antioxidants that our bodies need, we need more and better research to help us do so. 

Survival health: An interesting, as yet unexplained phenomenon of the human machine, is that the human body is able to adapt in a mysterious way like homeostasis, with no present signs or symptoms of mineral or vitamin imbalance. The adaptation utilizes amino acids, vitamins and other minerals to fill in the gaps. And probably borrowing from Peter to pay Paul, as robbing bones for calcium or/and magnesium! Adaptation will, in time, result in failed body systems. A person may go through his/her entire life nutritionally deficient or unbalanced and not know it;  enjoying socializing, physical, mental and emotional activities.  During this seemingly well time, depending on the severity of nutritional lack of nutritional balance, one may never become severely ill, while other factors are present that contribute to incubating the titter-totter stresses, like environmental toxins, contaminated and processed food, and so on and balance these out with overall low grade survival health.  The classic example of the body's ability to survive, for several months, is that of sailor's on ancient sailing ships subsisting on a diet deficient in fresh fruits and vegetables [vitamin C], that gradually causing scurvy symptoms in sailors before vitamin C was discovered. The human body is a marvelous machine that compensates for man's indiscretions.

This new perception of uncertain health is very different from all the establishment theories [WHO] stating that health is a balance of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing and the absence of illness or disease.  These were general theories that overlooked the precision and delicate balance of nutrient fine tuning or nutrient balancing, that, in turn, could result in optimal wellbeing or, if deficient, incubating disease states. It is safe to say that if there are no visible signs of disease, that most persons would assume such a person to be healthy.  But in real life, a person appearing to be in good health and functioning is not necessarily well; the degree of wellbeing is hidden and medically undiagnosed.

Even astute nutritionists fail to grasp that nutrients work as a whole with other co-factors or nutrient helpers. Medical doctors have been taught to fix a part of the body separately from the rest of the whole body. This would, for example, be an injustice to the patient recovering from surgery and on a hospital diet that especially lacks healing nutrients like organic sulfur, boron, magnesium, calcium, zinc, selenium as well as vitamins A, B-complex, C, D-3, E, K and other amino acids .... all that need to be fine tuned and essential to the healing process.

Body systems:

The human machine is made up of about 37 trillions of somatic cells. In humans, there are about 200 different types of cells, and within these cells there are about 20 different types of structures or organelles. All these cells communicate electronically and resonate with each other. These different cells make up 11 body systems.  All 11 body systems participate in the healing process at the same time. And for healing to take place, the body needs building materials, like nutrition, to do so!  This is why many scientists now recognize that the human machine has the ability to heal itself, slowly if need be.

When an injured body part is healing, the effects upon other parts of the body are called “adverse effects” or “side effects”.  Life extension: Medication side-effects 2003  It is a fragmented approach, compared to whole system thinking. By contrast, whole system thinking does not cause side effects and is not about symptomatic remedies, which are “parts thinking”, not whole system thinking. Renton: Pitfalls of modern medicine 2015

However, medical science is making progress. For example, pharmacists do balance drug dosage as part of the therapy. The big problem in prescribing medications to patients is that doctors have not had accurate laboratory tests to determine if the prescribed dose is actually delivered to the intended cells or organs. Such complete bioavailability - biochemical individuality has been lacking!

In 2013, researchers confirmed that specific nutrients and chemicals turn genes on and off, and affect genetic expression. Trafton: Controlling genes 2013

Nutritional Balancing means different things to different people.  At a basic level, its meaning in all instances has to do with providing the body with the nutrients it requires, in balanced ratios and level amounts, in order to enable its optimal functioning.  We have been lead to believe that medical science has most of the answers to our personal health.  For one, we can ingest food and nutritional supplements, but we, in spite of being alive, really do not know whether these nutrients are adequately absorbed from the digestive system or are doing us any good; for we lack the lab tests to prove that nutrients are delivered to somatic cells in adequate and proper amounts.

Short-comings of nutritional balancing:

A few things like our belief system and life style hinders our ability to attain optimal wellbeing.  What available information about balancing minerals and nutrients tells us is that there is a lot more to know about nutrition and the human body than we have been lead to belief! The human system needs dozens of nutrients daily --- and two-thirds of those nutrients are minerals that function in a precise and balanced manner! Minerals participate in nearly every one of the thousands of biochemical processes that occur in our bodies. Most persons eat food to their heart's content and assume that the food they are eating is good for them and that the amount  [serving portions] is also proper.  Nutritionists try to get more specific by recommending daily allowances for vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fats, proteins, carbohydrates and water. Medical doctors do not believe that food is our best medicine and hence, pay little if any attention to what their patients eat.  Almost everyone believes that they are experts when it comes to food, nutrition and their health, for they have been eating all their lives and that is why they are still alive.  We have also been lead to believe that when we get sick, all we have to do is go to the doctor and the doctor will fix our health problem. But a few scientists, researchers and even medical doctors have been questioning how much we really know about nutrients, medicine and how the human body really functions to use food in the body.  Renton: Pitfalls of modern medicine 2015 Well, what one knows and does not know often becomes controversial!

There are several inconsistencies in the Eck-Wilson approach. For one, their protocol requires patients to eat  boiled food.  Boiling vegetables destroys the natural enzymes in raw vegetables that allows digestion to start in the stomach.

Today's nutritional balancing system relies on getting feedback from hair analysis.  Hair analysis, while doing its best, is slow and very crude at the molecular level. The turn around time from analysis to balancing the patient's nutrition and lifestyle can take 9 months to years. Wilson: Remineralizing body 2016 This limitation in itself grounds this technology science from lift-off! 

It's like trying to make things out of LEGO blocks with boxing gloves on your hands. Yes, you can push the LEGO blocks into great heaps and pile them up, but you can't really snap them together the way you'd like. In the future, nanotechnology can let us take off the boxing gloves. We'll be able to snap together the fundamental building blocks of nature easily, inexpensively and in most of the ways permitted by the laws of physics. This will be essential if we are to continue the revolution in evolving a new theory of nutritional balancing-wellbeing and lifestyle. 

Although we drastically need Nutritional Balancing [NB] to be functional, it cannot succeed with all the nonsense apron strings attached to it at this time.  We need to move from today's complex dream-state empirical science NB to a realistic scientific medical-wellness model. A model that harnesses nano-technology with analog computer programs to provide instant feedback from the lab to instantly balancing nutrients of patients and eventually helping patients acquire optimal wellness. Once these initial steps are accomplished, then lego blocks can easily fall into place; and changing the disease incubating life style will need little motivation to change.  Research  ... we desperately need research!  This aspiration may seem like a far off dream, but it is very doable. 

Lift-off is possible! Ack and Wilson have done the much needed exploratory ground work that may lack some science and speedy technology behind it, but their final end product is good and has merit.   We just need scientists to step out of the "medical box", and approach it from a different angle and streamline lab analysis, interpretation and application.  Research , research , research!

Such a project would change the entire health care system.  Successfully changing the lifestyles of millions of people would dramatically cut health care costs.  We would have a healthier society.  Spending research on this project of exploring nutrient-balancing would be a much better investment than spending money on drug research or on a failing health care system.

Where are the investment gurus that can help finance this humane project .... nutritional balancing and implementing a new direction in optimal wellbeing?
