SanitasRadio.com. As you quietly read these words, a whirl of activity is taking place in every cell of your body. Every second, unseen and unnoticed, millions of new cells are reborn in your body’s ceaseless program of self-generation.
Cells are the bricks and mortar from which all living tissue and organs are made. To understand degenerative and metabolic disease you must become familiar with the miniature world of the cell, and how it is able to perform baffling chemical transformations. The cell produces infinitely complex proteins, vitamins, hormones, neurotransmitters, growth factors, enzymes and metabolic energy (life-force) called adenosinetriphosphate (ATP).
A healthy body is determined by the health of each of its cells. All disease originates at the cellular level and not at the organ or system level. Healthy cells create healthy tissues. Healthy tissues create healthy organs like, the heart and lungs. Healthy organs create healthy systems, like the endocrine system and the immune system, and healthy systems make up a healthy body.
In the complex world of the 75 trillion plus cells that make up your body’s nation, you are the President (the brain) that delegates the police force that protects and shields the cellular citizens from attack by foreign enemies (free radicals). The cellular citizenÌ¢s work performance, transportation system, medical care, communication, food and water, and methods of toxic waste and trash removal are up to you.
With your guidance and direction, the body’s nation will provide all the necessities for proper functioning as a whole. Your cell citizens come in all shapes and sizes, and perform an infinite variety of job tasks. Some reside in large cities that are your organs. Others prefer to live in the outskirts in small towns away from the traffic – for instance your fingernails. But no matter where they reside, each cellular citizen has a purpose, an important duty for the good of the nation – your body.
