It may come as a surprise to some, but the body is constantly regenerating itself, without this process of cell regeneration, the miracle of life would not be possible, the same happens with the tissues of our body and nutrition is an ally for this happen.
In times of disease, however, regenerative processes are overtaken by degenerative ones. This is where medicine performs its noble task, bringing the body into balance with food, herbs, nutrients, healing energies and of course the right mindset. Current medicine based on drugs has little regenerative, on the contrary, it mostly interferes with the body’s healing process, treating the symptoms not the causes of the problem. Let’s look at some examples of body regeneration.
1. Regeneration of the nervous system.
There is currently a very wide range of natural compounds with regenerative effects on the nerves. In 2010 a study found in a combination of blueberries, green tea and carnosine an effect that promotes neuronal regeneration. Glutathione is another substance that has been shown to have regenerative effects on nervous tissue, this is produced by the body by consuming its precursors such as milk thistle and bioactive cysteine.
Studies have even shown that classical music and a sense of belonging and love can help improve and regenerate neurons.
2. Liver regeneration.
Glycyrrhizin is a compound found in licorice, which contains a powerful anti-virus agent that has been found to stimulate liver regeneration. Glutathione itself has this regenerative and protective effect on the liver and kidneys. Some more compounds with these properties are: Oregano, Coffee, Turmeric, Ginseng and Vitamin E.
3. Regeneration of beta cells (diabetes).
Unfortunately, medical science is still very careful about the natural potential of some compounds to reverse diabetes. Despite expensive stem cell therapies, beta cell transplants, drugs, and billions of dollars of research, traditional medicine still has no real options for diabetes.
The following compounds have been shown experimentally to regenerate insulin-producing beta cells, which are destroyed in insulin-dependent diabetes, and which, once restored, can restore the patient’s health by lowering their insulin doses until no longer required.
Some examples of these compounds are: Black Cumin (Nigella Sativa), Vitamin D, Banana (Musa paradisíaca), Coccinia, Sri Lankan Water Lily (Nynphaea stellata), Avocado, Flaxseeds, Berberine, Swiss Chard, Turmeric, Catechin, Vinca Rosea.
4. Regeneration of hormones.
There are secretagogues, substances that increase the ability of the endocrine glands to secrete more hormones, and there are substances that actually regenerate hormones that have been broken down into carcinogenic metabolites. One of these substances is vitamin C. A powerful electron donor, vitamin C has the ability to contribute electrons to regenerate the form and function of estradiol (estrogen; E2), progesterone, testosterone. Thus, with proper nutrition we can help the function of the glands such as the ovaries, enough vitamin C can be an excellent option for hormone replacement therapy.
5. Regeneration of cardiac cells.
Not long ago, it was believed that heart tissue was incapable of being regenerated. But experimentation indicates that this is not true, there are substances called noncardiogenic that help regenerate heart tissue. These substances stimulate the formation of cardiac progenitor cells that can differentiate into cardiac tissue. These substances include resveratrol, Geum japonicum, Glutathione.
6. Regeneration of cartilage, joints and spine.
Curcumin and resveratrol have been shown to improve recovery from a spinal injury. Other substances that show promise are Cranberry, Glutathione (glutathione precursors), Skullcap China, Melatonin (Cherries).
Regarding degenerative joint disease, or osteoarthritis, there are a huge number of regenerative substances such as: Boswellia, Chinese SkullCap, Nettle, Fish Oil, Vitamin E, Turmeric, Avocado, Castor Oil, Bromelain, Cat’s Claw, Garcinia Kola.
In the end, regenerative medicine threatens a modern medical infrastructure based on drugs and degeneration of the body. Symptom suppression is more profitable because it ensures that the disease will continue, and with the side effects of the medications, a huge number more symptoms emerge that begin to require new medications.
This is a non-sustainable, infinite model, which in the end will have to evolve or die in the face of people’s awareness of new lifestyles, new natural and non-invasive treatment options that can lead the body to regenerate.
