Cellular Medicine

Cellular Medicine is a new scientific concept introduced by Dr. Matthias Rath which explains that the primary cause of today’s most common chronic diseases including various forms of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and others, is a result of chronic deficiency of vitamins, amino acids and other specific nutrients.  

Never before was the deficiency of cellular bio-energy and bio-stability described as the primary cause of an entire group of diseases.

Cellular Medicine defines an optimum daily intake of specific micronutrients as a basic preventative measure for maintaining health, and effective and safe control of many pathological conditions.

The principles of Cellular Medicine should form the basis of a modern medical approach to health and disease. Each day that the implementation of Cellular Medicine is delayed, thousands of patients worldwide will continue to suffer and die from preventable diseases which actually are not real “diseases” but are the consequences of a long-term deficiency of essential nutrients.

The Principles of Cellular Medicine:

      1. Health and disease are determined at the level of the millions of cells building our body, not at the level of organs. The optimum functioning of the body’s cells is the foundation of health and, in contrast, cellular malfunction leads to disease.
      2. A chronic deficiency of vitamins and other essential nutrients is the most frequent cause of cellular malfunction within the body and is the primary cause of many chronic health conditions and susceptibility to various diseases. Micronutrients are essential co-factors (catalysts) of a multitude of metabolic processes taking place in the body’s cells, such as converting food into biological energy to support cellular metabolism and to build the body’s structures. Many of these essential micronutrients, such as Vitamin C and the amino acid Lysine, are not produced in the human body. These and many other essential nutrients have to be obtained in sufficient amounts in our diet and/or provided in a form of supplementation. In addition, certain vitamins and amino acids, such as proline, can be produced in our body but their quantities are usually not enough to maintain optimum health. chronic nutrient defeciency dr rath
      3. Cardiovascular diseases are the most prevalent diseases because the cells building the heart and blood vessels consume vitamins and other nutrients at a much higher rate than the other organs. This is due to the mechanical stress on the heart muscle and the coronary arteries from the heartbeat and the pulse wave of blood distributed throughout the body.
      4. Optimum dietary supplementation of vitamins and other essential nutrients is the key to the prevention and effective control of cardiovascular disease and other chronic health conditions.
