Immunity, the Autonomic Nervous System, and Bioenergetic Reciprocity
for a Fuller Expression of Innate Healing in Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic medicine recognizes
that health and healing depend on the integrity of the whole person.
As such, doctors of naturopathic
medicine emphasize the treatment of disease through the stimulation,
enhancement, and support of the inherent healing capacity of the person.
Qi, or the body's vital life force, is under the control of innate
intelligence and is expressed in negative and positive polarities (different
from the Yin-Yang coordinates of Oriental Medicine). Maximizing innate
healing requires a greater recognition of the reciprocal polarities
of this energetic phenomena in nature.
Reciprocity—a fundamental value in augmenting innate intelligence—is
found in immune TH-1/TH-2 cytokine responses, in the autonomic nervous system
(ANS), and in the way innate intelligence controls and governs the healing response.
Augmenting the reciprocity of nature's bipolar harmonic energies on a multi-dimensional
anatomical basis is essential for the body to resist infections, reject tumors,
inhibit carcinogenesis, detoxify pollutants, and heal itself.
Nature's recipes for getting the body in tune are vastly different from
the man-made creations of nutritional and pharmaceutical science. Nature employs
a supercontinuum of reciprocal, harmonic polarities to heal the body. Assessing
this on a clinical level required the development of a homeopathic harmonic scale
of polarities. Then, the performance efficiency and reciprocity of innate intelligence
could be quantified. Reflecting the plurality of ancient healing traditions,
I coined the name "Quantic Harmony" (QH). QH became a way to describe
the reciprocal, bipolar actions of innate intelligence and its influence on the
inherent healing capacity of the patient.
QH concepts reflect a reformulation of Oriental medicine to meet the health care
needs of the twenty-first century. This was necessary, because ancient healing
systems were developed in a different time, when no one needed antidotes for
environmental toxicity, electro-pollution, or the thousands of man-made synthetic
chemicals that infiltrate our modern day world. QH can guide naturopathic practitioners
to interact, cultivate, and guide innate healing in mathematical and scientific
terms. When disrupted by chemical or electro-pollution, or man-made United States
Pharmacopeia (USP) vitamins, QH values deteriorate, diminishing one's inherent
Restoring QH values helps restore immune bipolar TH-1 and TH-2 functions and
ANS regulation so the body is more resilient to stress. Understanding QH helps
the clinician to gain contact with the body's inner physician, a hidden
and powerful primal energetic zone where innate intelligence —manifested
in interwoven patterns of inseparable links and circular chains — can perform
its healing miracles on the human organism.
When naturopaths align their focus and the patient's focus on QH, integrative
healing energy can be dispersed with greater efficiency to stress- and pollutant-damaged
areas of the body. By palpating and prodding these pathways, doctors will gain
access to the body's primal energetic zones where innate intelligence,
echoing the logic and evidence of quantum physics, can regulate innate healing.1-6
It is important to note that the reciprocity of QH tells us about energetic interactions
and relationships and the struggle for the human organism to maintain harmony
and balance in a world full of chaos and toxic challenges.
When the polarity of nature is diminished, the body loses its innate ability
to rebalance itself following stressful events and the immune system gets stuck
in a dominant TH-1 or TH-2 cytokine response. The result: the body can't
digest food completely or fully detoxify and excrete excess toxins. On the other
hand, when QH is restored, a physiological and energetic reorganization occurs
which brings the body into synchrony with the flux and flow of bipolar energies.
The theme of this article is that by restoring the reciprocity of QH polarities,
doctors can restore the functional unity of innate intelligence throughout the
entire organism. Such a change in thinking moves us decades ahead of what we
call natural or alternative medicine. Within the paradigm, there is no single
remedy, therapy, panacea, perfect diet, or "magic bullet." Emphasis
is not on single organ or meridian therapy. Instead, we are motivated to engage
in getting the body more synchronized, animated, and connected to the harmonic
bipolar forces that entwine us with nature and weave the web of our existence.
Appreciation of this model of health care requires a humble admission that the
human body is no longer in symbiosis with nature as it was hundreds and thousands
of years ago. Our physical shape, the quality of our movement and flexibility,
and even our nourishment are being compromised. For this reason, ancient principles
of herbal medicine and modern day synthetic nutritional approaches fall short
of compensating for health issues that revolve around disharmonic states of QH.
Clearly, the restoration of innate healing and innate immune functions should
be the primary focus in naturopathic medicine.
Some of us spend too much time focusing on organs or meridians and the ill-fated
concepts of cellular resonance to explain why and how the body doesn't
heal completely. Instead, in this new paradigm, practitioners define organs and
isolated body parts in functional terms via energetic zones and cyclic energetic
physiology. By understanding how and why these energetic systems are stressed,
we are able to make diligent efforts to remove and/or protect the body from these
stressors. Accomplishing this goal means putting aside trendy diet and supplement
fads. It means that we refrain from stimulating energy artificially and do not
treat the so-called symptoms of nutritional deficiencies. Instead, the larger
picture is focused on finding ways to restore the reciprocity of innate intelligence.
Instead of attacking the body's response to disharmonic QH states, we need
to understand it. In other words, we must stop spending too much time doctoring
the patient and start spending more time activating the body's inner physician.
In this manner, we honor and nurture the patient's innate intelligence
and put our faith in the capacity of the human organism to heal itself.
Understanding Reciprocity and the Nature of Innate Healing
Quantic harmonics are the driving force of innate healing. It is within these
harmonics and polarities that the body's awesome intelligence disperses
its self-healing powers. What else can explain how DNA holds libraries of
information or how the body simultaneously performs thousands of other life-sustaining
feats faster than the speed of light?
This fundamental shift in our focus will help patients, condemned to a circle
of pain or suffering, from the hopelessness and helplessness of a chronic disease
or syndrome. Considering that these healing modalities are less expensive and
risky then conventional medical and surgical techniques, it makes perfect sense
that all naturopaths familiarize themselves with finding ways to do the following:
nature as an ally rather then an adversary to be overcome and conquered
with fragmented and mechanistic approaches;
- put aside mechanistic
philosophies that reduce the body to functional
parts or put undue emphasis on any one organ or system of the body;
- develop a deep respect for the wisdom found in the QH states of
innate intelligence, thus learning how to coach or guide the human
to more fully activate
the body's inner physician.
There is virtually nothing in our educational
process that teaches us exactly how and what kind of energetic deficit
pursues its treacherous attacks on
the health of the body. The anxieties and suffering of millions of humans
in varying levels of this type of energetic QH disharmony. Our studies
show that this disharmony starts at the liver and kidney level. Why?
begins because of pollutant, synthetic chemical overload and malnourishment.
When this happens, the QH-related reciprocal polarities of the liver and
kidneys are disrupted. One may ask: could this be the key that unlocks
to door to getting
the fullest expression possible from innate intelligence?
To answer this question, consider that restoring QH allows healing and
reorganization to accelerate and deepen, so rapid health transformations
These insights represent the newest, most exciting, and potentially farthest-reaching
discoveries ever to emerge from science. As you will learn, enhancing QH
can tap into the hidden secrets of how the body heals itself with innate
guiding its efforts. When these harmonic energies are fine-tuned, they
become an omnivorous harvester of healing energy which, in turn, interfaces
interlocks to every conceivable dimension of human functioning. As my clinical
have shown, it is a very simple compass on the road to satisfying better
physical and mental health and a curious mixture of startling simplicity
The Human Energy System and Innate Intelligence
The primal energetic forces that regulate innate intelligence reside untapped
in the QH zones of the body. In embryonic life, this primal energy directs
the formation and organization of life. This river of life is a hidden factor
to most practitioners, who rarely acknowledge its existence and who insist
they can assess the human energy system with modern-day technology. Very
little of this powerful healing zone can be quantified and measured by EAV
or meridian stress assessment and existing diagnostic systems. Again, in
the modern world, innate intelligence has been diminished to dangerously
low levels. Naturopaths need to understand and identify this energetic zone
and learn how to regulate the currents and polarities of innate healing.
Remember, even naturopathic medicine has been influenced by the classical
medical paradigm which focuses on the unidirectional effects of sickness
Naturopaths and alternative health practitioners continually focus on botanical
immunomodulation therapies or on the indiscriminate use of USP vitamins that
disrupt the supercontinuum functions of innate intelligence. We have to ask
ourselves: do these approaches really treat the whole person and fully support
the inherent healing capacity of the person?
To answer this question, we need to go back to the foundational principles
of homeopathic medicine. Jacques Benveniste, MD, found that bioenergetic signals
can effectively take the place of chemicals.1 Hence, on some level, we need
to be concerned with the bipolar energetic and invisible forces of nutrition.
Ideally, nutrition should be aimed at re-establishing the reciprocity of innate
intelligence so that a cooperative harmony exists between all the systems of
the body. In this manner, the encoding, transmission, reception, and decoding
of bio-information, dependent on QH, will improve. Clearly, more and more research
is pointing to the fact that it is the fundamental source of bipolar energy
that empowers amazing feats of biology in the quantum world of self-healing.2-6
Figure 1: Quantic Harmony Scale
The Quantic Harmony Scale denotes the negative
charge, reflected in gradations, which represent one's strength and
level of nourishment. The positive charge represents how the body expresses
energy. In nature, a state of Quantic Harmony (QH) can only exist when
both physical and energetic nourishment are supplied to the body at
values of plus ten and minus ten. States of Quantic Disharmony are
indicated by the Green, Blue, and Red Cycles of Energy Flow as compared
to the Quantic Harmony (QH) zone. The BLUE circle represents a 50%
reduction in innate intelligence and mild to moderate nutrient deficiencies.
The GREEN circle represents 75% reduction in innate intelligence and
moderate to severe nutrient deficiencies. And the RED circle represents
an 85% reduction in innate intelligence with a chronic depletion of
Defining the Determinants and
Reciprocity of Human Nutriture
Figure 1 depicts the Quantic Harmony
Scale in negative charges, which reflect
the QH values or one's level of nourishment. On the other side of the scale
is the positive charge, which represents how the body expresses energy. The important
point to remember when viewing this scale is that, in nature, QH states can only
exist when reciprocity is restored and defined in terms of both physical and
energetic "bipolar" nourishment.
The Quantic Harmony Scale depicts the dual effects of both nourishment and energy.
Energy can be expressed as short bursts of energy in the +1, +2, +3, +4, +5 readings
or as sustained and powerful energy releases when the readings are in the center
of the scale at values of +10 and -10. QH is optimal when the "negative" value
of nourishment equals the "positive" value of energy. When this happens,
innate healing polarities are optimized. Again, when both polarities have the
same value of 10 (negative and positive), the body is functioning optimally and
with reciprocity at all levels of human functioning.
Since nourishment is the material basis for transforming and creating states
of QH that regenerate the body, we need to consider the type of nourishment that
can achieve these values. Since all sick patients can't fully digest foods,
it makes sense to utilize easy-to-assimilate nourishment. Then, the "negative" end
of the scale, being nutrient-deficient, can quickly parallel the readings on
the positive end of the scale. As the illustration depicts, the further apart
the bipolar values of the scale, the greater the loss of reciprocity and the
sicker the patient.
Because 90% of the cells in the human body are commensal organisms, functioning
as the strong arm of immunological defenses, we need to ascertain that we provide
nourishment that allows these beneficial organisms to proliferate and flourish.
In this manner, they will assist the immune system in immunological warfare and
minimize the spread of opportunistic infections and cancer cells. Probiotics
cannot accomplish this feat. True states of symbiosis can only be accomplished
via nutriture that fortifies and expands the potential of commensal organisms.7
Since commensal cells play a critical role in how the body maintains QH, using
pre- and synbiotic nourishment causes them to express 235,000 more genes (compared
to human cells), which make all sorts of incredible compounds to keep the body
free of unwanted inflammation or microbes. When commensals are depleted from
maldigestion or dietary errors, the immune system loses its ability to keep the
body free of infection.
Today, deriving energy from stimulation is common. Stimulation causes short bursts
of energy. It's as if you used newspaper instead of hardwood to keep a
fire going; such artificial stimulation disrupts cyclic energetic physiology.
Each time energy is stimulated artificially, we deplete nourishment until, one
day, we go too far and end up with serious and life-threatening consequences
like a heart attack or stroke. Remember, the greater the distance between these
two polarities on the scale, the more severe the symptoms. Muscle, joint, bone,
heart, liver, or kidney problems commonly occur when this happens. As the QH
scale is disrupted further and further away from QH, the body loses its inherent
healing power and cannot bounce back after a stressful event. Reciprocal bi-polar
functions of the meridians, the ANS, and the immune system are diminished. Stress
becomes distress. Common sense dictates that activities like rest and recreation,
drinking good, clean revitalized water, and nourishing our bodies with living
synbiotic food concentrates can help sick patients restore reciprocity and enhance
Defining Nature's Recipe for Human Nutriture
Conventional wisdom specifies that
USP vitamins and inorganic, amino acid or protein-chelated minerals
(gluconate, aspartate, citrate, etc.) in non-covalent/ionic
forms and unipolar states can provide optimal levels of human nutriture.
This thinking no longer holds. Standard USP vitamins and inorganic minerals
cannot quell the cellular misbehavior triggered by pollutants and cannot
correct nutritional deficiencies at the intracellular level. Instead, they
stimulate energy without nourishing the body, pushing the body into states
of compensatory or survival physiology. These divergent QH states disrupt
reciprocity on every level conceivable in the human organism. In other words,
synthetic vitamins function as inhibitors or agonists of reciprocity and
can warp the biochemistry of living organisms. The crux of nutritional technology,
then, is to harness nature's timeless wisdom and probiotic counterparts
as factories, so that nutriture is linked and aligned in the right polarities
or bipolar positive and negative fashions.
The implications are profound. The consequences become especially important
in viral illnesses or cancer where there is an uncontrolled, non-reciprocal
proliferation of viral or cancer activities in the human organism. When nature
makes nutrients in a natural fermentation process, there are thousands of nutrients
in co-protein and ligand formats. Because co-proteins induce cells receptors
to become more responsive, they are the preferred form of human nutriture in
the sick patient with maldigestion.
Co-protein nutriture allows nutrient uptake and utilization to be more beneficial
with vast improvements found on both the positive and negative end of the QH
scale. Automatically, this results in providing the body with sustained levels
of healing energy. Thus, the "key" that unlocks the cells' "lock" is
the natural ligand and co-protein format of synbiotic nutriture. This is only
possible by exploiting nature's reciprocity to create nourishment in
exactly the correct states of polarity to induce optimal states of QH.
Nutrients created in a natural fermentation process open the lock and thereby
take the place of the natural key missing in synthetic USP vitamins or inorganic
non-covalent/ionic minerals. In reality, no nutrient in nature is ever isolated
or separated from other nutrients. Unlike enzymes and whole food nutrients,
these nutrients are much smaller: the molecular weight is about 250 daltons
(a dalton is equal to one-twelfth the mass of carbon 12, the most abundant
isotope of carbon), whereas the weight of horseradish peroxidase is about 40,000
daltons, and the weight of whole food nutrition is about 60,000 daltons. Hence,
the versatility and reactivity of this form of human nutritive is superior
to eating raw foods or taking other forms of nutritional support. The use of
co-proteins and ligands as carrier agents has been researched extensively by
the pharmaceutical industry as a way to deliver drugs more efficiently to cell
Extraordinary properties of human nutriture arise as scientists draw inspiration
from nature to produce nutrients on the nanometer scale with co-proteins and
ligands, so that the sick patient can get nourishment thousands of times faster
than through eating whole foods or taking in other forms of nutrition. These
250 dalton catalysts can boost chemical reaction rates a billionfold. And,
unlike USP vitamins, synbiotic nutrients—formatted correctly with co-protein
and ligand carriers—can breakdown a variety of toxic compounds that are
omnipresent in our environment.
Making synbiotic nutrients from whole food concentrates was not easy. It required
a painstaking four-step design process that allowed ligands and co-proteins
to bond to the nutrients at extremely low molecular weights. In fact, it took
almost a decade of research to find ways to inhibit mold overgrowth (common
in cultured and fermented food concentrates) and to stabilize the nutrients
so they would have a longer shelf life that fresh foods. Borrowing further
from nature's design, we eventually solved this problem by discovering
a catalyst that formed selenoproteins and other mineral-protein formats in
covalent bonds. During this time, other researchers were reporting dramatic
results in studies of patients with severe acute pancreatitis,12 chronic hepatitis,
abdominal surgery,13 and liver transplantation.14 According to Bengmark, "Both
pre- and probiotics seem to be necessary for uneventful recovery, a combination
usually referred to as synbiotics."16 Health and well-being are based
on homeostasis/equilibrium between numerous systems in the body via gastrointestinal
(GI) microflora that has a strong influence on numerous bodily functions.11-26
Synbiotic nourishment – bursting with an array of living co-protein and
ligand bound nutrient – turns on the full power of our innate intelligence
and re-tunes our QH states to optimum polarities and the organizing brilliance
of life itself.
Nature choreographs some wonderfully elegant and extremely complex catalytic
nutrients that make man-made efforts in the laboratory look clunky. Finding
ways to mimic these molecular dances toughens the molecular architecture of
synbiotics so they can remain a living food with a long shelf life.
Although our cleverness in manipulating the immune system continues to grow
in sophistication, we tend to forget that the reciprocal motion of the immune
system is our greatest weapon against disease. In the heart, pharmacologists
work with beta blockers. Yet, beta1 adrenoceptors quicken the heart rate and
increase the force of each beat, while in the lungs, beta2 adrenoceptors widen
the air passageways. When reciprocity is lost, the body may rely or become
addicted to drugs and synthetic chemicals.
Only nutrients in bipolar formats can mimic the natural reciprocal activity
of the body. By binding to many variants of cell receptors, allowing the cell
to receive a "louder" message and undergo a more pronounced behavioral
change, as compared with the effect of drugs or synthetic vitamins, which may
only activate few receptors while stimulating the body in anti-reciprocal motions.
Let's not forget that a fundamental cause of nutritional deficiencies
is escalating states of environmental toxicity and an increased intake of synthetic
chemicals. Let's face it: people perform chemistry in different ways
than Mother Nature does. According to Dr. Terrence Collins of the University
of Auckland in New Zealand "…synthetics are so different from the
products of natural chemistry that it is as though they dropped in from an
In summary, nourishment is the material basis for igniting reciprocal, bipolar
healing energies that activate and enhance repair and regenerative functions
in the body. Thus, it is critical that supplemental nutrients are vibrant and
harmonic (bipolar) and occur in low molecular weights for rapid correction
of nutrient deficiencies. Since maldigestion caused by gastro-duodenitis or
maladaption to stress depletes the liver of nutrients needed by the body to
detoxify pollutants in our environment, these nutrients can help to keep the
body clean. Almost all sick people cannot digest food properly. As a result,
the liver cannot nourish and cleanse the organism and package nutrients in
the correct formats. Healthy fermentations in the intestines are inhibited,
so the body becomes deficient in synbiotic co-protein/ ligand nutrients. Fasting
provides little or no benefits when human and commensal cells are malnourished.
Finally, without bipolar nourishment, immunological warfare lacks the strength
and stamina to conquer microbial foes. Candidiasis, runaway viral infections,
and stubborn biofilms accumulate in the body. Instead of treating the patient
with synthetic vitamins, antimicrobials, anti-yeast, and/or anti-viral botanicals,
naturopathic medicine might put more emphasis on the incredible reciprocity
of nature's own cleansing and nutritive agents.
