This may come as a surprise to some, especially persons trained in conventional medicine, but one of the default states of the body is continuous regeneration. Without the process that is similar to inflammation, which includes a continuous cellular turnover within the body – life and death constantly intertwine – the miracle of the human body would not exist.
In times of illness, however, the regenerative processes are overpowered by degenerate effects. It is a state where medicine can perform the noblest act, pushing the body back into balance using food, herbs, nutrients, and healing energies. Today, however, medicine based on drugs constantly uses chemicals that have no regenerative potential; indeed, they always interfere with the body’s self-renewal in order to suppress the symptoms against which they are applied.
Despite the completely erratic nature of the things that stimulate healing and regeneration against the conventional medical system that is frowned upon, or is distrustful of spontaneous remissions in favor of the suppression of symptoms and disease management, there have been a number of significant studies on this topic in recent years.
Regeneration of nerves
There is a wide range of natural ingredients that have proven neural regenerative effects. A study published in 2010 in the journal “Rejuvenation Research”, has found that the combination of blueberry, green tea and carnosine contains neuritogenic (neuronal regeneration promoter) and regenerating effects of stem cells in animal models of neurodegenerative diseases. Other researched neuritogenic ingredients include:
- Lion’s mane mushroom
- Apigenin (ingredient in vegetables such as celery)
- Red sage
- Royal Jelly
- Coffee (trigonelline)
There is another group of substances that restore the nerves, which are known as remyelination compounds. They reinvest demyelinated axons with new myelin sheaths. The myelin is often damaged due to neurologic injury and / or dysfunction, in particular due to autoimmune and vaccines induced demyelinating diseases.
It should also be noted that even music and falling in love have been studied as potential stimulators of neurogenesis, regeneration and / or repair of neurons, indicating that regenerative medicine does not necessarily require taking something; indeed, a wide range of therapeutic activities are included in order to also improve the health and well-being.
Regeneration of the liver
Glycyrrhizin, a compound found in licorice, and which had recently shown itself to be a strong anti-SARS agent, proved to be able to stimulate a regeneration of the liver mass and its function in an hepatectomy model of animals. Further substances for liver regeneration include:
- Carvacrol (volatile ingredient of oregano)
- Korean ginseng
- Vitamin E
Restoration of the beta cells
Unfortunately, the medical community has yet to make use of the natural ingredients that redirect diabetes. While billions of dollars are annually spent on expensive stem cell therapy, islet cells and on a number of synthetic drugs, our kitchen cabinets and our yard may already contain the long-sought cure for type 1 diabetes.
The following ingredients were experimentally proved to be able to regenerate the beta cells which produce insulin, and which are destroyed in insulin-dependent diabetes, and which, when once restored, may (at least in theory) restore the health of the patient to the point where they no longer require an insulin substitute.
- Gymnema Sylvestre (“sugar destroyer”)
- Nigella Sativa (“black cumin”)
- Vitamin D
- Barber (found in bitter herbs like barberry and goldenseal)
- Bitter melon
- Chard (green leafy vegetable)
- Corn Silk
- Sulforaphane (especially concentrated in broccoli sprouts)
There are secretagogues which increase the capacity of the endocrine gland to secrete more hormones, and there is a substance that actually regenerates the hormones that are degraded (by emission of electrons) in the potentially carcinogenic “transient” hormone metabolites. One of these substances is vitamin C. As a strong electrolyte donor, this vitamin can make electrons resurrect the form and function of estradiol (estrogen, E2), progesterone and testosterone. Combined with food, which can support the function of the glands, such as the ovaries, vitamin C can represent an excellent supplement or alternative to hormone replacement therapy.
Restoration of heart cells
Not that long ago, it was believed that the heart tissue cannot be rebuilt. The new, but rapidly growing body of experimental research now indicates that that is simply not true, and there are types of regenerative ingredients known as neoardiogenic substances. They are able to stimulate the formation of cardiac progenitor cells (paternal cells) that can profile in the healthy heart tissue, and include the following:
- Siberian ginseng
- The extract of red wine
- Geum japonicum
Another terrific example of heart cells renewal is what is known as feto-maternal stem cells travel through the placenta . The fetus provides the mother with stem cells that can regenerate the damaged heart cells, and probably a wider range of other cell types.
Restoration of cartilage / joints / spine
Turmeric and resveratrol proved to be of great help when it came to recovering from spinal cord injuries. More than a dozen other natural ingredients are also promising in this area. Regarding the spinal cord disease, such as osteoarthritis, there is a wide range of potential ingredients that have a renewing effect.
Finally, regenerative medicine threatens to undermine the economic infrastructure that supports modern and, quite frankly, degenerative health systems that are based on drugs. The suppression of symptoms is profitable because it ensures the perpetuation of the original underlying disease and the creation of a growing series of additional symptoms induced by treatment.
This is unsustainable, infinite growth model that shares features characteristic of the process of cancer itself – a model that is, by its nature, doomed to fail and will eventually collapse. A healthy diet, lifestyle and attitudes that are conducive to physical regeneration, can help us achieve physical freedom, which is a precondition for liberating the human soul and spirit.
