Homeostasis

 

Majid Ali, M.D.

Homeostasis Is Equilibrium With Wholeness


Homeostasis is usually defined is the ability of an organism to maintain its equilibrium. Doctors rarely use this term. Those who do it occasionally appear to  equate homeostasis with health. This would be acceptable if they would think holistically.
To speak about homeostasis without being holistic in one’s science and philosophy of healing is, well, plain silly. So it seems just as well that doctors seldom use the term homeostasis.
An appropriate modification of the prevailing definition of homeostasis – it seems to me – would be to add the word holism to it. So, here is my proposed definition of the term: homeostasis is the ability of an organism to maintain its wholeness and equilibrium. In the context of the health/dis-ease/disease continuum in humans, I elaborate my main point here by four questions.

Four Core Questions Concerning Homeostasis

1.    What preserves homeostasis of the human body most?
2.    What jeopardizes homeostasis of the human body most?
3.    How best can doctors conceptualize and clinically employ homeostasis as defined above in their healing work?
4.    How best can individuals conceptualize and clinically employ homeostasis as defined above in the matters of personal health – their own and that of the family?
I consider the above questions crucial for everyone interested In the science and philosophy of health and healing. First, to put my personal perspective in the prevailing context in the medical and scientific communities, below is the Wikipedia text on the subject.

Wikipedia Definition of Homeostasis
 
Homeostasis is the property of a system within the body of a living organism in which a variable, such as the concentration of a substance in solution, is actively regulated to remain very nearly constant.[1] Examples of homeostasis include the regulation of the body temperature of an animal, the pH of its extracellular fluids, or the concentrations of sodium (Na+), potassium (K+) and calcium (Ca2+) ions as well as that of glucose in the blood plasma, despite changes in the animal’s environment, or what it has eaten, or what it is doing (for example, resting or exercising). Each of these variables is controlled by a separate “homeostat” (or regulator), which, together, maintain life. Homeostats are energy-consumingphysiological mechanisms.[2]
The concept was described by French physiologist Claude Bernard in 1865 and the word was coined by Walter Bradford Cannon in 1926.[2][3]

 
A Different Perspective of Homeostasis
I find little, if any, clinical benefit in Wikipedia definition of homeostasis. I know blood potassium level falls with some diuretics and it rises when kidneys begin to fail. I know this problem is addressed simply by choosing a different drug. Rising blood potassium levels are routinely lowered with dialysis therapy. So far so good. However, to cite these therapies as a proof of understanding potassium homeostasis is silly. infer from this that these we know potassium homeostasis is silly. In 2005, I reported reversal of kidney failure in several patients in the journal Townsend Letter. So I know it is possible but only with a broad holistic integrative nondrug plans which sharply focus on bioenergetics of cell membranes, including the movement of potassium across these membranes along with trans-membrane traffic of an enormous number of other substances which affect movement in and out of potassium. While dialysis centers are proliferating everywhere I do not know any nephrologist who earnestly try to reverse kidney failure with nondrug therapies and then publish papers about it. I address this subject at length in my monograph entitled Oxidative Cell Membrane Disorder – Leaky Cell Membrane Disorder (1987) and Darwin and Dysox Triology, the 10th, 11th, and 12th volumes of The Principles and Practice of Integrative Medicine.
In short, I  say that the core concept of homeostasis can be put to clinical use only with the science and philosophy of holism in healing.
Now I return to my four questions.
1.    What preserves homeostasis of the human body most?
2.    What jeopardizes homeostasis of the human body most?
3.    How best can doctors conceptualize and clinically employ homeostasis as defined above in their healing work?
4.    How best can individuals conceptualize and clinically employ homeostasis as defined above in the matters of personal health – their own and that of the family?
Answers to the Four Questions
 
1.    Oxygen signaling
2.    Disruptions of oxygen signaling.
3.    With the science and philosophy of holism in healing which recognizes insulin as the minister of energy and metabolism to King Oxygen of the human body.
4.    With knowledge of the basics of science and philosophy of holism in healing which focuses on natural dietary, environmental, self-regulatory, and spiritual measures.
