You all heard such terms as catabolism, anabolism and metabolism. These terms are used in medicine, biology, biochemistry, etc.
Anabolism is the name for all processes of creation of new substances, cells and tissues of an organism. It is synthesis of proteins and enzymes in an organism, creation of new cells, accumulation of fats, formation of new muscle tissues.
Catabolism is the opposite of anabolism. It is breakdown of complex substances into simpler ones, and decay of old parts of cells and tissues of an organism. Perhaps you may think that catabolism is something bad, since it is a destruction. That is not right, because breakdown of fats and proteins for creation of energy is also catabolism, and without this energy organism cannot function. This energy can be directed to synthesis of necessary substances, formation of cells and renewing of an organism.
Anabolism and catabolism are interrelated. Altogether they are called metabolism, in other words substance exchange. As you can see, anabolism and catabolism are the opposite processes, but they are a part of the same process – metabolism, and both of them are important. Correct combination of these processes ensures balanced metabolism and health of our organism.
Anabolic processes are the key to regenerative and adaptation features of an organism.
Catabolic processes allow an organism to maintain its functionality in stress conditions (illnesses, traumas, resource mobilization in an emergency). In childhood, anabolic processes prevail, in elderly age – catabolic. In adult persons, these processes are in balance. Their ratio depends on health condition, physical and psychoemotional activity. Anabolism takes place in an alkaline environment, PH > 7. Catabolism is extraction of chemical energy and its use for the purposes of life functions at PH < 7. There is a laboratory test to identify PH of urine, values of which in a healthy person vary in acid phase in the range of 6.2 – 6.4. If health condition of a sick person gets better after taking of acid (catabolic) products, it means that his organism is over-alkalinous. If alkaline products cause improvement, then organism is over-acidic. If there is no response – a person is practically healthy.
- Coffee test (no milk, no sugar) – catabolic, acid product. If drinking coffee increases stamina, energy, liveliness – your organism is over-alkalinous. Settles evening and nighttime pains.
- Soft-boiled egg test – alkaline anabolic product improves physical condition at a catabolic state. Settles morning and daytime pains.
- Conjunctiva color test: pale conjunctiva means shifting of PH to acidity; dark-red – shift to alkalinity.
- Breathing through right or left nostril: if breathing is easier through a right nostril – anabolism; if a left nostril breathes easier – catabolism.
Blood reaction can be identified through tests of blood potassium and urine calcium. Amount of blood potassium below 3.8 mEq/L – catabolism, above this level – anabolism. Calcium below 2.5 means catabolism, above 2.5 – anabolism.
For example: Psoriasis, eczema proceed at skin anabolism, usually promoted by alkaline, putrid dysbacteriosis in large intestine. Treatment must be applied with acidification of skin and normalization of PH in large intestine.
For example: Joints and back pains evidence a catabolic state in a pain nidus. Pain syndrome easily removed with alkaline anabolic products: vegetarian diet, folic acid, vitamins E, B1, B2, P etc. Local application – horseradish, black radish, turpentine ointment. Linden tea, salt bath with +38˚C water. Before 02:00 p.m. alkaline PH prevails, after 02:00 p.m. – acidic prevails.
Catabolism, Yang-condition – is an environment favoring helminthes, aerobic bacteria.
Anabolism, Yin-condition – favors fungi, viruses, anaerobic bacteria. Fungal skin conditions – ringworm of scalp, microsporia cannot be treated without local and general acidification of an organism. But streptoderma happens at acidification of an organism – it requires alkalization of skin. All herbal remedies, chemical preparations cause either catabolic or anabolic effect to an organism.
Peculiarities of these effects must be taken into account for creation of treatment scheme, depending on objective of treatment. Any treatment that does not take into account fundamental importance of anabolism-catabolism imbalance, PH and condition of organism’s lipids protection system, can be dangerous, especially at severe illnesses.
Intensive exhaustion of fatty and muscle tissues happens at oncological processes (cancerous cachexia), which leads to depleting of organism’s energy reserves. This catabolism condition is accompanied by significant decrease of body mass. It is assumed that tumor produces a number of substances, responsible for cachexia. These are peptides, which strengthen catabolic processes, and lipids – a mobilizing factor. Today it was proven that cachexia physiology is explained by cachectin (tumor necrosis factor) activity, produced by macrophages at endotoxin stimulation. Organism that has acid reaction is predisposed to oncological diseases. It is accompanied by promoting factors, for example viruses, oncogens, etc. If PH of saliva and urine is 5.0-5.7 – it is underlying risk for oncological processes. If PH of saliva and urine is 7.0-7.4 – you are protected from oncology. It is recommended to alkalize an organism before surgical intervention, and adhere to vegetarian diet after it.
Membrane-mitochondrial changes at catabolic processes are reviewed with HSS “Metatron” (Metapathia GR Clinical) diagnostics.
Cell membranes are complex sensory mechanisms that automatically monitor environment, where a cell lives, and correct cell’s function in accordance with changing conditions. These sensory mechanisms define functioning of mitochondria and nucleus. Disorders of these mechanisms result in malfunction of nucleus and its genome. Therefore, problem of cancerous tumors formation may be regarded as a disorder of mitochondria and cell membrane interrelations, and not as just a mutation of mitochondria. It is impossible to explain the initial stages of tumor formation without preceding continuous damage of cytoplasm cell membranes and mitochondria membranes. Growth of a tumor starts from a particular part of tissue. Therefore, transformation in membranes and inadequacy of antioxidative systems are the primary factor. Scientists discover oncogenes, for example p53 and others. They are described, examined, but they just a reflection, secondary reconstruction, a result of persistent changes on a mitochondrial-membrane level. Mitochondria DNA regulate energy processes in Krebs cycle. Mitochondria DNA differs from cell nuclei DNA. Membranes are “the heel of Achilles” of cells, which is damaged due to various factors in the first place. Self-protection and restoration functions of such cells are limited greatly. They are the basis, from which malignization process can start. Some authors (O. Warburg, 1927, S.A. Neifakh, 1961, V.S. Shapot, 1968, 1975, Zotin, 1991) have already offered membrane-mitochondrial approach to cancerogenesis explanation. They have great advantages in treatment of tumors, but there are some downsides, because they cannot explain some aspects of normal cells transformation into malignant cells.
Warburg’s energy concept, 1927
Transformation is accompanied by strengthening of aerobic and anaerobic glycolysis (energy release process). Ability to get energy by means of glycolysis «lactic-acid fermentation» and grow with use of this energy – is the main biochemical feature of tumor cells. Cancer cells cannot suppress glycolysis in the presence of oxygen. Energy of a cell is linked with mitochondria, this scientist suggested possible disorders in mitochondria for the first time.
Membrane theory of cancer by S.A. Neifakh, 1961
From this point of view, specifics of cancer cells energy is defined by mitochondria membranes defect and increased synthesis and catabolic power of hexokinase, which limits glycolysis speed in cells. Membranes define functioning of enzymes.
Mitochondrial theory of cancer by A.I. Zotin, 1991
In the last decade, we have received lots of information about disorders of structure and functions of mitochondria – organelles, performing breathing functions, in cancer cells. This supplements Wardurg’s approach. Concept originates from a previously suggested idea that appearance of malignant tumors is related to appearance of mutant and defective mitochondria in cells. Damage of external membrane, increasing of its permeability and, as a result, changing of regulatory mechanisms of breathing and glycolysis. Attention is paid to the external side of mitochondria membranes, but not to a cell’s membrane as a whole. And this membrane complex can define many internal processes of both mitochondria and cell nucleus. The mentioned theory is only a narrow approach to mechanisms of oncology appearance on a cellular level. It is mitochondria, which contain genetic programs that are responsible for the most perfect type of energetics, i.e. Krebs cycle. They define whether a cycle be full-scale aerobic, or turn to anaerobic way. In normal conditions, if functioning of many mitochondria is violated, then mechanisms of apoptosis – self-destruction are launched. But that does not happen in case of oncological cells. Why? Energy processes in oncological cells happen mainly in cell cytoplasm, and not in mitochondria. There is no Krebs cycle. Here is a weak point of a tumor. These cells have distorted reaction of engaging a program of reproduction and reparation, which is linked to mechanisms of inflammation on a cellular level. Inflammation strengthens reparation. Anti-inflammatory remedy Aspirin can hold growing of oncological cells. Anti-oxidants promote apoptosis of cancer cells (black grape, juneberry, elder-berry, beets betaine, selenium, vitamin A, lycopin and others).
Membrane damage reasons:
- Formation of highly toxic free radicals. These compounds are very aggressive chemically. They can damage cell membranes and cause various disorders of organism functioning. They serve as a background, against which many consequent cancerous changes can happen.
- Insufficiency of anti-oxidant system.
- Viruses, fungi, invasions.
- Lack of Omega-3 acid. Its lack affects functioning of mitochondria, their protection from free radicals.
In order to get rid of pathology, restoration of a membrane-mitochondrial complex is an obligatory step. Increasing of general efficiency and persistence of remission may be achieved by means of flaxseed oil that contains Omega-3 acid. Succinic acid promotes decreasing of ketone bodies and glucose in blood, decreases hydroperoxidic autoxidation and intoxication in cells, improves functions of damaged mitochondria. Energy level of ATP synthesis at succinic acid oxidation is significantly higher than at oxidation of any other substrate. Oncological cells have anaerobic type of glycolysis, with use of oxygenators we switch anaerobic type to aerobic, which weakens their aggressiveness. Succinic acid helps to restore damaged energy processes, when they start to involve mitochondria functioning. Mitochondria initiate apoptosis mechanism. Energy level of mitochondria weakens due to mitochondrial and cell membranes disorders. Ascorbic acid, glucuronic acid and gluconic acid are also interesting. Oxygenators are responsible for energy and breathing processes in mitochondria. Antioxidants are the protection of cells against oxidative stress by radicals. Anti-oxidants improve absorption of oxygen by cells. Therefore, anaerobic glycolysis can be switched to aerobic glycolysis (as in healthy people). Organic acids are used as catabolic agents, minerals – as anabolic agents (they also promote fixing of calcium in bone tissues). As a result, general level of PH is preserved, and it should not be compensated by means of additional consuming of a large amount of alkaline products. Acid-alkaline potential can be ensured by two substances only: microhydrin – acidification, coral calcium – alkalization. It strengthens immunity and slows down ageing of an organism. Red line of a diagram is located above a blue line at a catabolic process. Tissue loses an ability to react to incoming signal – distance between red and blue isolines increases, organism spends a lot of energy to support reserves in tissues. At the same time tissue response weakens. Therefore tumors are characterized in the following way: benign – small distance between isolines (1-1.5 points); malignant – 3.5-4 points. We see such diagrams in mitochondrial membranes, cytoplasm structures, membranes of various tissues cells. Using of internal “vegeto-test” ensures strengthening of compensatory reactions up to 78%. We tried to use external “vegeto-test” – response was almost the same (homeopathy of high potency, miasmas, autonosodes). We imprint preparations after treatment in order to avoid violation of adaptation, and prescribe it for 1-1.5 months. No previous diagrams are registered after that.
We present one case with accurate diagnosis, laboratory test before and after treatment. We work with “Metatron” device less than one year in a medical center “Vesta”. We will gather material for confirmation of correctness of this approach to treatment of illnesses.
- Acid-alkaline potential in a patient’s organism must be taken into account for treatment scheme creation; proper preparations and diet must be recommended for correction.
- After diagnostics with “Metapathia GR Clinical” software, when you prescribe metazodes, a special attention must be paid to membrane-mitochondrial changes and cell’s membranes of the most damaged tissues.
- Treatment must be accompanied by drainage homeopathic preparations for excretion of cell metabolism products.
- Give you patients recommendations on maintaining of acid-alkaline potential, as a form of severe destructive illnesses prevention.
