How Deficiencies Can Create Disease

deficiencies can create diseaseAll the cells of the body need specific nutrition in order to survive and reproduce. They need in varying amounts depending on the cell involved, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins & minerals. If they don’t get the nutrition they need including the vitamins and minerals, they won’t be able to function properly.

Let’s take a made up example:

In order to remain healthy, this cell needs the X vitamin, the Y vitamin and the Z vitamin in varying amounts. It obtains these vitamins from the food the body eats.

But the person has bad dietary habits and goes to fast food restaurants and eats processed foods, which doesn’t provide much of the X vitamins. It may not even give the body any of the X vitamin. An X vitamin deficiency is created. Maybe not at first, but after months and years of getting too little of what is needed, the body has a deficiency of the needed X vitamin which will affect the functioning of the cell.

The person also smokes. The body uses the Y vitamin in order to capture and eliminate the various toxins inhaled while smoking. Thus, if the person doesn’t get enough of the Y vitamin, it cannot protect the body from the toxins and there will not be enough of the Y vitamins to give the cells what they need on a day-to-day basis to function properly.

Thus we have created deficiencies. The body needs these cells to be healthy in order to function properly. If the cells don’t function properly, the tissue and the organs made up of these cells don’t function properly.

What if the organ we are talking about is your heart? Or your brain? Or you digestive tract – which is responsible for getting all the proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals delivered to the other cells of the body.

When the body is not functioning properly it is called disease. Disease is defined: “adisordered or incorrectly functioning organ, part, structure, or system of the body resulting from the effect of genetic or developmental errors, infection, poisons, nutritional deficiency or imbalance, toxicity, or unfavorable environmental factors.”

Infection? The body in order to fight the infection must use the Z vitamin, But, while using the Z vitamin to fight the infection, the body doesn’t have enough of the vitamin to give it to the cell that needs the Z vitamin to function properly. Thus, this deficiency will result in an incorrectly functioning organ.

There are many other examples. There are many deficiencies that can create so many problems in the body.
