Smart & dumb molecules

Smart & dumb molecules

Natural (smart) versus synthetic (dumb) molecules

Natural or smart molecules (modulators)

On the one hand we have natural nutriceuticals: these are bioactive molecules that modulate to produce something, with no side effects, they are water-soluble and are eliminated from the body.

Synthetic or dumb molecules (blockers)

On the other hand the allopathic medicinal products or pharmaceuticals: these are blockers, so they block, they are fat-soluble and are stored in oestrogen tissue (the breast and prostate cells)

Only positive in acute medicine, traumatology, transplants.

Negative: side effects due to toxic substances, symptomatic medicine, accumulation (sometimes years later).

Example in pain: aspirin/painkillers, alleviates/blocks pain, but does not cure. (symptomatic treatment + side effects with chronic use: abdominal and intestinal bleeding + accumulation).

Other synthetic substances are:
synthetic hormones, insecticides, pesticides, preservatives, additives, colours, disinfectants in foodstuffs and in the environment.

These chemical substances are all FAT-SOLUBLE!
Natural substances, WATER-SOLUBLE!

We all take in too many toxins through food, medication, the environment, stress, etc. The result is that the following are affected:

  • the immune system (we quickly become ill, allergies, auto-immune disorders)
  • the endocrine system (hormonal imbalance, menopausal disorders, PMS, prostate conditions, etc.)
  • the nervous system (depression, ADHD, hyperkinesia, etc.)
  • after years of exposure, oncology problems.

The medical and the paramedical sector are increasingly aware of the side effects of synthetic medicinal products. So it is important to tackle this problem and offer the professional a solution in the case of chronic conditions.

Detoxification via the intestines and the liver is extremely important.

An excess of toxins in the body causes "overloading" of the intestines and the liver. The consequence: dysfunction of the intestine, so an unhealthy liver!

What we do is to help the liver so that it can eliminate toxins, as a result of which "the tank does not overflow” and illnesses with accompanying symptoms can be avoided.

Detoxification in the liver

Toxins that are soluble in fat, metabolic waste, synthetic hormones and other harmful substances accumulate in the liver.

Phase 1:
Cytochrome P 450 enzymes act on the toxins. Reactions: oxidation, reduction, hydrolysation, halogenation. These reactions produce reactive metabolites or free radicals (= the modern word for toxins).

Phase 2:
Making fat-soluble toxins soluble. Detoxification: free radicals bind to antioxidants (neutralise), now the toxins can be eliminated by excretion via the kidneys (urine) and via the intestines (faeces):

If free radicals are not bound to antioxidants, they cause damage to: the immune system, the endocrine system and the nervous system.

Sulfur (S) and glutathione (see royal jelly in Bupleurum complex) are very important for the 2nd stage of the detoxification = sulfation phase.

Examples of antioxidants:
vitamin C: can bind 1 free radical
vitamin E: can bind a few hundred radicals
glutathione: can bind 2000 free radicals!
