BIOCHEMISTRY OF OUR LIVES

It’s common knowledge, that the basis of all organisms are chemical elements, so-called trace elements involved in virtually all life processes.

Trace elements - a kind of vitamins which present in the human body in miniscule amounts and are necessary for maintaining normal metabolism. These include above all the vital iron, copper, iodine, zinc, manganese, cobalt, molybdenum, and other elements. In addition, microdoses of toxic elements in the body, it is first of all metals: lead, aluminum, arsenic, etc. 81 of chemical elements from 92 occurring in the nature are found in humans. Each person has a unique "element portrait", which corresponds to the age, sex, constitution and even temperament.

Unlike to many organic substances chemicals are not synthesized in the body, and come outside with food, air, through the skin and mucous membranes. Therefore, a man constantly depends on the chemical composition and quality of the environment. Normally maintained optimal trace element balance provides a normal metabolism. Deficiency of certain elements in their diet or excess cause diseases related to metabolic disorders. It is reported, that in some geographic areas with a natural deficiency or excess of certain elements in the environment (air, water, food, professional environment, medicine), with diseases of the digestive system  (disturbance of suction) there is deficiency of vital elements or excess of toxic elements. Microelement imbalance naturally leads to mineral metabolism disorders and the emergence of diseases. For instance, there is correlation between iron deficiency and anemia, and there is evidence to suggest that Iodine deficiency leads to goitre, etc. Moreover, the pathology is directly related to the level of deficit or excess of the element and the duration of them. All violations caused by an imbalance of minerals, called microelementosis.

The deficiency of chemical elements primarily affect children and adolescents in the period of intensive growth, pregnant women and nursing mothers, "workaholics", people with chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (including intestinal dysbiosis), endocrine system, athletes, people who used to stick to uncontrolled diet or those have poor nutrition, abuse alcohol and drugs.

Those people who are vulnerable to microelementosis are representatives of mass occupations as miners, welders, turners, chemists, drivers, employees of gas stations, garages, traffic police, as well as residents of regions with extreme natural conditions.

Currently, the amount of information on the role of trace elements in disease occurrence is skyrocketing. First & foremost it relates to environmental issues and the development of technological microelementosis. It’s common knowledge that many industrial areas have the impact on the nearby territories forming the zones with high content of lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium, nickel and other toxic elements that pose a threat to health and even life. In terms of intoxication the most harmful effects has a so-called "triple black": lead, cadmium and mercury.

Anthropogenic pollution of the environment infuse a serious concern for its negative effects on the health of different population groups. It relates mostly to children, as the intense accumulation of various malicious elements begins in the placenta. This leads to the appearance of congenital malformations, reduced immunity, the development of many diseases, delayed mental and physical development. Long term the generation grows weak, people are becoming susceptible to cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Given the complex direct and inverse relationship between the elements, the clinical picture of metabolic diseases can be very difficult to interpret. It’s quite a challenge to diagnose microelementosis using the traditional methods of clinical research: an unhealthy person can make the full examination, blindly take symptomatic treatment for a long time, still he will fail to manage health problems. The reason could be the lack of miniscule amounts of selenium, copper, or any other essential trace element in the body. There can also be the other extreme associated with the chronic exposure to contaminated environments which could lead to an excess of the same toxic or "essential" elements. Therefore, in terms of impact of trace elements on the body especially the words of Paracelsus are becoming an ultimate truth that there are no toxic substances, there are toxic doses.

In this format, the importance of diagnosing of microelementosis and their correction is evident. Nowadays, in Russia are actively developing studies of trace element disorders in the Center for Biotic Medicine.

ANO "Center for Biotic Medicine" was established in 1988 by Doctor of Medicine, Professor Anatoly Viktorovich Skalny.

Specialization of the Center is development and introduction of new methods of diagnosis and correction of conditions associated with a deficiency, excess or imbalance of the chemical elements, vitamins and amino acids in humans and animals. Center for Biotic Medicine is known to be the domestic leader in this area of science. The unique experience of the Center has become the basis of medical technology "Identification and correction of disorders of mineral metabolism of the human body" (Registration certificate № FS-2007/128 of July 09, 2007), is known from the late 80's of the last century as the "Method of Dr. Skalny» ®.

The successful implementation of unique approaches to the diagnosis and correction of metabolic disorders in the body permitted to the Centre to help to majority of more than 220,000 applied patients living throughout the Russian Federation and far beyond. The experience of the Center for Biotic Medicine is the basis of its excellent reputation in the field of medical care of high sports achievements, identifying the causes and extent of pollution of the environment.

The evidence of public recognition of the achievements of the Centre is its continued participation in programs to improve the health of the population, studying of environmental pollution and the effects of unfavorable environmental factors on the body, carried out by the Moscow government, federal agencies, health authorities of Russian regions. The Center's employees are involved as experts for the various examinations and consultations on regular basis.

Dozens of research projects, dissertations, patents and teaching materials proves the authority of the Center for Biotic Medicine . Plus, the Center carries out regular communication and exchange of experience with leading world-class experts, reports on conferences and forums, participation in the governing bodies of many professional associations of doctors and associations of scientists, editorial boards of scientific journals and publishers.

The high level of ongoing researches and offered services is based on the use of only the most advanced methods for determining the concentrations of chemical elements and compounds in the body and a quality management system complying with the standard ISO 9001:2008.

The developed methodological approaches at the Center for Biotic Medicine may help people suffering from skin diseases (neytrodermit, acne, vitiligo, dermatitis, psoriasis, premature aging, seborrhea), chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (colitis, gastritis, peptic ulcer disease), allergies , endocrine diseases (common cold, prone to tumors, etc.), anemia, and diseases of nails, hair (patchy hair loss and total), metabolic disorders (obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, gall - and kidney stones, etc.), infertility, scoliosis, and other diseases.
