What is Preconditioning?
Think about preconditioning your body just like you would think about planting a garden. Would you just walk out your backdoor one bright sunny day and throw a handful of seeds out?
If you answered yes, my question would be what outcome do you expect to get? Would you expect to reap a bountiful harvest of vine ripened vegetables that look and taste amazing? Or is it more likely that it would take a small miracle if anything, but weeds sprouted?
Plants don’t magically sprout to life just because you plant them. They need an environment that nurtures them and promotes growth.
So, to answer your question, preconditioning means nutritionally enriching your body to provide an environment full of healthy vitamins, amino acids, minerals and be free of harmful toxins.How do I go about Preconditioning my body?
We have tried to make this process easy and affordable, something everyone can and should do on a regular basis. The better shape you are in, the better you will weather any health crisis or accident, and the better your body will respond to any treatment you might be considering.
Our suggestions are science-based and—best of all—are things you can do mostly on your own, are affordable and good to incorporate into any healthy lifestyle.
Where do I begin this Health Transformation Journey?
You want to begin by decreasing inflammation in the body. Inflammation contributes significantly to aches, pains, brain fog, and fatigue. You are also trying to lower blood glucose levels as disease thrives in a system with an abundance of available sugar.
Step 2: Intermittent Fasting
Pick a 6-hour window where you normally consume most of your daily food intake. For example, eat between 11:00 am and 5:00 pm. Drink clear liquids before and after that. It may take a bit of getting used to, but soon it will seem like a normal part of your day. When you are comfortable with that, you may notice that you have reduced your portion size as well.
Step 3: A Short Fast
Once you are comfortable with intermittent fasting, go on a 24 hour fast, consuming nothing but water, clear liquids, and some magnesium. Ideally, you would want to go on a 72 hour fast, but please don’t rush into this. It’s not easy to do. Each step in this process offers significant metabolic benefits. 24 hours will suffice.
We know that immune system defects are at the very center of aging, as are many diseases. 24 hours gets the ball rolling in the right direction. 72 hours completely reboots the immune system and it begins functioning normally.
Step 4: Develop a Normalized Healthy Lifestyle
After fasting, we encourage you to develop a healthy dietary lifestyle you can sustain. Your body will thank you and you will probably feel better overall.Take advantage of your cleared-out system with the right nutrients for optimal stem cell health.
Vitamin D deficiency is now considered a worldwide epidemic that affects billions Vitamin D-3, after undergoing a natural synthesis process, increases glutathione levels in the brain. We recommend Vitamin D-3 Levels should be 70 and above.
Studies have shown that Vitamin D acts directly on hematopoietic stem cells (HSPCs) (cells involved in blood formation) independently of calcium regulation. Studies on humans have shown that Vitamin D-3 increases HSPC group numbers and their growth.
Glutathione is the master antioxidant and is capable of preventing damage by free radicals. Oxidative stress this is measured by determining the ratio of reduced glutathione and oxidized glutathione within cells. Glutathione has been shown to alleviate oxidative stress.
Glutathione is also used for detoxification of toxic metabolites such as formaldehyde, which is commonly found in many vaccines and flu shots. High glutathione levels exhibit increased migration of stem cells. Study results indicate high levels of glutathione are required for maintaining stem cell function increasing our understanding of oxidative stress on overall cellular function.
Magnesium is essential for life and health and is part of all metabolic and biochemical processes in our cells. It also acts as a second messenger in cellular communication and cell growth because it regulates cell cycles.
Magnesium deficiency contributes to lower concentrations of cells, negatively affect mitochondrial function. Our mitochondria are where respiration and energy production begin. A few recent studies suggest that extracellular magnesium may affect cell differentiation, which in short can inhibit a cell’s ability to change into another cell type, which is vital in regeneration.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. They acids cannot be produced in our bodies and must be derived from food. Unbalanced amino acids hinder the making of protein, so balance is critical to protein production.
Not surprisingly amino acids have a strong influence on stem cell growth, self-renewal and differentiation. Recent reports suggest the nutrient composition can influence an increase of specific cell types.
Much more research needs to be done to understand its implications, however early results indicate that nutrient manipulation can promote or suppress formation of specific cell lines. The bottom line is that balanced nutrient availability strongly influences stem cell growth.
Low iodine levels impair stem cell production. Thyroid diseases are common among the populace, which creates a problem with stem cells.
One four-week study conducted by Jennifer E Bruin, et al, on thyroid function and the development of stem cells showed that hypothyroidism impaired the benefits of a stem cell injection.
“Our findings raise the possibility that the maturation and ultimate function of the transplanted cells can be influenced by the hormonal and metabolic milieu of the cells,” researchers said. In other words: the stem cell injection doesn’t do as well as it should because the thyroid isn’t functioning optimally.
Susan J Crockford, who published the study “Evolutionary roots of iodine and thyroid hormones in cell–cell signaling” explained that “THS [thyroid stimulating hormone] regulate and coordinate physiology within and between cells, tissues, and whole organisms, in addition to controlling embryonic growth and development.” This includes stem cells.
Crockford found that iodine’s antioxidant capacity plays a critical role in protecting cell membranes from oxidative damage.
Your stem cells absolutely need energy from mitochondria to multiply and thrive. Without adequate PQQ and its high antioxidant capacity, stem cell generation stagnates. Your body experiences higher levels of inflammation.
Nutrients like PQQ, B vitamins and selenium have been shown to promote the growth of new mitochondria, which can provide more energy at the cellular level.
Adrenal Gland Nutrient Complex
Researchers are constantly discovering ways in which stress negatively affects the body, the latest being with stem cells. Stem cell health directly impacts adrenal gland health. If you don’t meet your adrenal nutrient needs, stem cell health becomes impaired. High cortisol levels damage stem cells.
Neuroscientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that chronic stress triggers long-term changes in brain structure and function. Chronic stress has the ability to flip a switch in stem cells that turns them into a type of cell that inhibits connections to the prefrontal cortex. This in turn decreases the number of stem cells that mature into neurons.
By providing the body with vitamin C, riboflavin, vitamin B6 pantothenic acid and predigested glandulars, you can nutritionally provide the adrenal boost and support your body needs to have a healthy response to stress.
