CellQuest Education Series: A Logical Review of Medicines

Scientific Reflections by Dr. Gerry Norton

MEDICINAL  AND DISEASE CATEGORIES

Types of medicines include pharmaceutical drugs (FDA approved) and natural medicines (foods and food supplements). Their structures and modes of operation are significantly different. Pharmaceutical drugs comprise single molecular structures, while foods comprise a multiplicity of compounds working together. Supplements are formulated with selected ingredients derived from plants and herbs. Pharmaceutical products may also contain plant or herbal extracts, comprising single compounds. In general, diseases may be classified as acute and chronic. Acute diseases are defined as short term events with clearly observable symptoms. Typically, the term is applied to diseases lasting up to three months. The causes of acute diseases are often microbial (viral or bacterial). Chronic diseases refer to long term ailments with no current cure options and requiring essentially, long term medicinal treatments. It seems that while acute diseases become less prevalent because of successful medicines (almost exclusively, approved drugs), chronic diseases undergo ever increasing medicinal treatments of various types and developing discovery.   

MEDICINES FOR ACUTE DISEASES

For acute diseases where the immune system fails as a remedy to avoid an ultimate demise and there is no known alternative capable of acting in time, pharmaceutical drugs offer the only practical solution. Any attendant damage is short lived and usually recoverable. Consequently, the medicinal risk is truly minimized and the benefits clearly indicated. The application of natural alternatives to acute diseases lacks reaction time capability. The biochemistry of natural substances functions in a “disease prevention” way as distinct from direct elimination of the disease. The clear advantage of pharmaceutical products in the treatment of acute diseases is faster reaction time.

MEDICINES FOR CHRONIC DISEASES

The time intervals for treating chronic diseases are significantly long and constitute disease management as distinct from actual cure. Pharmaceutical drugs pose higher risks to health in the treatment of chronic diseases. Delivery to disease sites through the digestive system poses issues of toxicity and consequent organ damage because of the time intervals required at relatively high dosages of single molecules (compounds). A time/concentration impact becomes evident by increased risk of unintended, errant biochemical pathways.

Additionally, the cascading effect of a multiplicity of drugs to counteract the side effects of prior ones gravely exacerbates the risks.  Conversely, natural foods (medicines) do not involve time/concentration risks to such lifetime drug applications required for chronic disease treatment.

OPTIMUM MEDICINAL SOLUTIONS

The time intervals for treating chronic diseases are significantly long and constitute disease management as distinct from actual cure. Pharmaceutical drugs pose higher risks to health in the treatment of chronic diseases. Delivery to disease sites through the digestive system poses issues of toxicity and consequent organ damage because of the time intervals required at relatively high dosages of single molecules (compounds). A time/concentration impact becomes evident by increased risk of unintended, errant biochemical pathways occurring. Additionally, the cascading effect of a multiplicity of drugs to counteract the side effects of prior ones gravely exacerbates the risks.  Conversely, natural foods as medicines do not involve time/concentration risks to such lifetime drug applications required for chronic disease treatment. The Optimum treatment of acute diseases relies on pharmaceutical drugs since alternative medicines generally require more time to be effective. Forchronic diseases, which have no known cure, disease management or control requires such long treatment periods that prescription drugs pose organ damage risks resulting from accumulated toxicity effects and errant pathway activity.

For acute diseases the optimum treatment relies on pharmaceutical drugs since alternative medicines generally require more time to be effective. Alternatively, chronic disease management or control requires such long treatment periods that prescription drugs pose organ damage risks resulting from accumulated toxicity effects and errant pathway activity.

ADJUNCT AND COMPLEMENTARY MEDICINES

In the best interests of patients, a combination of both pharmaceutical and natural medicines is the only rational solution. The integrated approach includes efficacy and time concentration considerations in the risk management of chronic disease treatment. The best and safest combinations ensure successful disease management without high risk occurrences.  Our experience with CellQuest Liquid supports our belief that natural products may be allowed to feature prominently in integrative, adjunct and complementary medicines.

  1. My son was diagnosed with CA of prostate,,5,we ordered large orders of Cell quest,within two weeks his PSA
    was better,the next two weeks it was normal,this was 18 months ago,He is doing well, I take Cell quest, also, just because it makes me fell grate,I have energy, ride my bike,at 83 years young. Thank you CellQuest
