Nutrient Deficiency Syndrome
What is a Syndrome?
If you accumulate enough symptoms, you will have a syndrome. A syndrome is a cluster of biochemical and physiological dysfunctions that impact one or more systems in the body—such as the cardiovascular system, made up of the heart and blood vessels—and shares common origins in terms of nutritional deficiency and poor lifestyle habits. All syndromes originate from the progress of the 3D Effect. What modern medicine calls "disease" is actually dysfunction brought on by the chronic, long-term nutritional deficiency we call Nutrient Deficiency Syndrome:
How the 3D Effect Becomes a Syndrome
Depletion ➯ Deficiency ➯ Dysfunction
Dysfunction = Symptom(s)
Multiple Concurrent, Interrelated Symptoms = Syndrome
Syndromes manifest as multiple dysfunctions that appear simultaneously in a patient as a result of the same deficiencies or lifestyle choices. The best-known example may be the Metabolic Syndrome, a cluster of dysfunctions that exhibit symptoms including obesity around the waist, high blood pressure and high cholesterol—that predispose toward a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. The vital fact to understand is these are not the diseases themselves. They are merely the symptoms—visible, measureable presentation of underlying dysfunction.
