The Results are in, your health success formula is…
Are you ready for a new way of thinking about health? The body is an ecosystem. Every cell has its own unique function and purpose. When one part of this system breaks down, it can affect every other part of the system. The key to optimal health is balance and harmony between all parts of your body’s ecosystem – from your gut to your immune system, from your brain to your heart.
In the body, structure is closely correlated with function and because of this, it characterises human health and disease since alterations in structure will change function.
The structure core process spans the molecular and whole-body levels. It involves the membranes of cells and organelles (structures in cells), bones, ligaments, muscles and their alignment as well as the structural integrity of all major organ systems from the brain to the skin.
Poor skeletal health has profound effects on the risk of fracture but it can also increase the risk of a range of chronic conditions including neuropathy.
What it means
The primary area of focus for the biological process of structure involves everything from the selective permeability of subcellular membranes to the stability and strength of musculoskeletal structures.
Why it’s important
The structure core process is vital for humans. Changes in the structural integrity of the body at any level can alter its physiological function.
Optimising structural integrity through proper nutrition, addressing digestive concerns, reducing inflammation and physical activity maximises the potential of the body.
