Chronobiology

“Chrono” means time and “Biology” means the study of life. Life continually changes due to the fact that the planet is revolving around itself and around the sun, which means that people are exposed to different conditions, very often but only periodically and cyclically. Humans are periodic animals – this means health is related to…

Molecular Biology

Molecular biology is the study of molecular underpinnings of the process of replication, transcription, translation and cell function. It is a branch of science that investigates biological activity at the molecular level, particularly the interactions between various systems of a cell and the structure, function and regulation of proteins and nucleic acids essential to life.…

Geomedicine

Any organism requires a specific environment to survive or thrive. The expression of genes is triggered and associated with specific physical and biochemical stimuli. Temperature can be a trigger for functions that when decoded by genes will activate thermogenesis or heat dispersal. The function of skin pigments such as melanin also depends on how the…

Exposomics

Emerging sciences such as nutrigenomics, and exposomics are delving deeply in the subject of how the environment and the partial introduction of it in our body in the form of food, air, water can influence cells to activate definite functions. It is obvious that certain diet types trigger inflammation genes, and others switch them on.…

Semiotics

Semeiotics studies signs and symptoms of the human body to correctly identify, collate and interpret, through diagnostics, the origin of simple or complex diseases. It can also identify the patterns of normality and therefore those conditions that could be pathologic in certain constitutions and are normal for others, such as heart rate, cholesterol, perspiration etc.…

Phenotypical Traits

Our physical traits and characteristics offer deep insight into the health or dysfunction of our body. Signs such as striations in fingernails may indicate mineral deficiencies, cracked skin vitamin deficiency, finger length may indicate hormonal dominance, texture of the tongue organ dysfunction, and so on. When we are clear on what to analyse and know…

Ancestry and Health Lineage

Genetic lineage has a significant influence on our ideal environment and lifestyle, and subsequent defense systems for our health. For example, a person with genetic history from England who is living in Australia will be more prone to sunburn and diseases of a hot environment. As we learn more about our dominant and recessive genes,…

Anthropometry

Anthropometry can be said to have started in mid-1800s when doctors were still very much in contact with ancient medicines whilst new paradigms they needed to understand were emerging. In 1870, Adolfo Prettelt, a genius of his time and fascinated with these new trends, started not only relevant scientific work, but was also interested in…

Embryology

Embryology refers to the full developmental biology throughout the full life spectrum – from “pre-womb to tomb”. It offers us specific insight into the physiological development of the human body, and the links between various organs, systems and functions. And because there are many epigenetic factors that influence our development, by understanding our specific physiology…

Neuropsychology

It has been widely accepted that human conscious activity seems to be highly related to brain cortical activity, however conscious activity has been demonstrated anecdotally with minimal or nil activity via electroencephalography. Subconscious processes refer to all physiological functions that we do not consciously influence. They are autonomic in essence but can be highly disrupted…
