Understanding cellular life spans is helpful as one begins to understand the length of time required for every cell in the human body to be replaced by a new cell.
There are between 50 and 75 trillion cells in the body. Each type of cell has its own lifespan. Red blood cells live for about four months, while white blood cells live on average more than a year. Skin cells live about two or three weeks. Colon cells have it rough and die off after about four days. Brain cells typically last an entire lifetime. Neurons in the cerebral cortex, for example, are not replaced when they die.
In the context of recovery, this would explain why private club members typically report almost immediate changes in fingernails and hair growth and quality (epithelial) before changes are seen in nerve or muscular related functions. It also explains why members continue to report continued gradual improvements over several years, in the absence of the treatment, as new daughter cells are equipped with fundamental improvements associated with addressing dysfunctions at the level of causation.
The restorative process is cyclical and is expressed in units of three hours and its multiples of twelve, twenty-four, thirty-six, forty-eight, and eighty-four hour periods. These periods of time are then doubled into week and three-week periods which are also multiplied into three month periods. These latter periods, moreover, are multiplied into six, nine, and twelve-month cycles.
Each cycle exhibits a positive and a negative phase. The positive phase is that phase when the member feels better and reports improvement in gross symptoms and general function. The negative phase exhibits an aggravation of his symptoms so that a member feels worse generally, as well as at the locality especially affected.
However, the negative phase is the more valuable of the two because it marks the time at which the recovery process is going on at its greatest speed. We are, therefore, very encouraged when a member can present with a reaction twenty-four, forty-eight, or eighty-four hours after the start time. We are also encouraged when members give a fairly stiff reaction either during the third, sixth, ninth, or twelfth week or at the twenty-fourth, thirty-sixth, sixtieth, or seventy-second week. The following chart shows the time relations of the reaction cycles most commonly observed.
Full recovery varies from 12 weeks to 12 months.
Words of Wisdom
To ensure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life. (William Londen)
The greatest miracle on Earth is the human body. It is stronger and wiser than you may realize, and improving its ability to self heal is within your control. (Dr Fabrizio Mancini)
