        G     for Gut

         I     for Insulin

        O    for Oxygen

GIO Health and Healing Path (the “GIO PATH, also “The GIO Health and Healing Plan”) is especially suitable for individuals looking for scientifically sound information presented in a simple easy to understand health information that:

  1. Clearly and simply defines a path of self-learning-to-self-empowering-to-self-healing for disease prevention and/or disease disease reversal;

  2. Is dedicated to the philosophy and science of holism in all aspects of health and healing;
  3. Is suitable for individuals with or without medical background

  4. Is not encumbered by ideological distortion;

  5. Is not stained by corporate deception; and 

  6. Empowers us to defy “captivity of diagnostic labels used for chronic diseases which do not any insights for grasping the true nature of the problem”; and

  7. Shows a pathway of very high probability of success in preserving health and in healthful aging. 


                            TM
The GIO Path

GIO Health and Healing Has a Different Language for Different Results

 

It is a language of:

Much deeper understanding of the roots of chronic diseases;

Much greater clarity about the energetic nature of disease and healing.


 

Mystery Maladies of Three Teenage Girls

  1. The first gaining weight without change in  diet or physical activity.

  2. The second growing facial hair.

  3. The third finding changes in skin pigmentation (areas of loss or gain) 

The above three clinical problems are generally considered mystery maladies by doctors who do not study insulin homeostasis well with appropriate insulin and glucose profiles prepared after glucose challenge.

The descriptions of the clinical features of the three teenage girls presented above will not be considered mystery maladies by physicians who always include insulin and glucose profiles as parts of complete case evaluation in such cases. 

The writer and his colleagues include insulin and glucose profiling in all patients with chronic metabolic, immune-inflammatory, infectious, hormonal, and  degenerative disorders.  The author has published a large number of reports with illustrative case studies on this subject. The full texts of most of these publications are posted on this and related web sites.


The Monkey in the Head

Diagnosis, Prognosis, and Boxosis

 In 1990, the writer published The Cortical Monkey and Healing, the first of his series of fifteen books on diverse subjects of philosophy and science of holism in health and healing. My purpose of writing this volume was to raise my voice against what I designate Captivity of diagnosis and tyranny of diagnostic labels. I coined these terms to caution people and their doctors about the undesirable consequences of accepting diagnosis which reveals nothing about the cause of of the disease but demands unquestioning loyalty, often for years and decades, sometimes for life.

Most people with chronic diseases eventually find out to their chagrin that the diagnostic labels and explanations for them given to them change from doctor to doctor, place to place, and year to year. The servitude to tyranny of diagnostic labels persists. Fortunately, this is beginning to change but in a very limited way for a very small number of individuals by captivity of diagnosis.

To further highlight this central purpose of offering The Cortical Monkey and Healing (1990), the cover of this volume carries a picture of three boxes labeled Diagnosis, Prognosis, and Boxosis respectively. The box labeled boxosis shows a picture of human brain. The author used this simple picture to illustrate his main point: The diagnosis in the first box carries the unsuspecting patient to the next box of prognosis, from which the patient is herded by the prevailing medical group-think into the next box of boxosis, which imprisons the patient’s brain within the tight space of induced belief in the prevailing medical group-think. boxosis. On page after page after page of the volume, the sad story of the Cortical Monkey-in-the-box is narrated with troubling accounts of patients tormented by their diagnosis labels about which they remained clueless.

Why Focus On GUT, Insulin, and Oxygen?

My Simple Answer:

First, A physician’s truest teacher are her/his patients.

Second, my patients revealed the simple truth of best clinical results with a sharp focus on

Oxygen, Insulin, and Gut.

For a clear understanding of the core message of GIO BIOENERGETICS,  I invite readers to consider some true-to-life case studies.

First, let us consider the case history of a young women diagnosed with interstitial cystitis and treated with multiple courses of antibiotics with persistent or worsening urinary symptom-complexes, including frequent painful urination with burning which disrupts sleep and is dispiriting because it does not respond to treatment, year after year. 

Next, let us consider the case history of a young man diagnosed with chronic prostatitis with recurrent episodes of acute and subacute prostatitis punctuating chronic prostatitis. He is treated with multiple courses of antibiotics with persistent or worsening urinary symptom-complexes, including frequent painful urination with burning which disrupts sleep and is dispiriting because it does not respond to treatment, year after year. 

Both the women and man referred to above had multiple urine tests to identify urinary pathogenic microbes. None were found consistently enough to justify accepting them as the real cause of urinary symptom-complexes.

Both had repeated cystoscopic examination of the insides of urinary bladders and prostate gland openings by their urologist which were designated non-diagnostic. 

I have treated several cases of interstitial cystitis in young women and young men. The tests for mold toxins in the urine produced by yeast and yeast-like microbes in the gut revealed high concentrations of multiple mold toxins, some of which are known to block oxygen-mitochondrial function. Tests for disruptions for oxygen-driven mitochondrial functions were also positive in all. Tests for insulin toxicity in all cases were positive for hyperinsulinism of varying degrees in all cases. It took months of diligent efforts to clear disruptions their GIO Bioenergetics before they finally found relief in the long-term.

Next let us consider the cases of autism in toddler, polycystic ovarian disorder of a teenager, and rheumatoid arthritis of a young man. The diagnosis in each case holds in captivity of disease for these individual for life – the parents in case of the toddler with autism. The victim of the diagnostic label seldom has a clear idea where the disease came from and how it might be eradicated. Nor do doctors who do not earnestly investigate with appropriate tests the status of GIO Bioenergetics and effectively address the relevant matters of disruptions of GIO Bioenergetics


The Beginnings of GIO Bioenergetic Path.

 For all his patients with chronic diseases, the writer makes earnest and sustained efforts to help them reverse their chronic diseases with integrated non-drug measures and natural remedies, sharply focusing on human body energetics. Early in his work as the chief pathologist at Holy Name Medical Center, Teaneck, New Jersey, he recognized the severe limits of microscopes as technologies for learning: Microscopes reveal tissue damage that has already occurred. They do not reveal how cellular health is threatened and interrupted by compromised systems of body energetics. To investigate that, the author recognized he had to imagine what those cellular energetics might be and how they might be fully integrated to produce and sustain a healthy and fit human frame.

The author’s interest, first in human cellular energetics, and later in whole-body energetics developed and sharpened during his 61-year study of human structure (anatomy), function (physiology), cellular energy (ATP) generation, nutritional health, disease in general (pathology) and specific body systems (immunopathology of the gut, for instance). This work led to his publication as a solo author of twelve volumes of The Principles and Practice of Integrative Medicine (1986 to 1994).

 The author is a surgeon (FRCS (Eng) – turned pathologist (Columbia University, New York) – turned laboratory director (Holy Name Medical Center, Teaneck, New Jersey) – turned board-certified environmental disease practitioner – research immunopathologist – turned clinical nutritionist –turned turned researcher in immunopc;inical nutritionist- ,physicertif,

The writer, which sharply focus on what he recognized as the three main dimensions of the human body energetics based on my 61-year study of human structure (anatomy), function (physiology), and disease (pathology).


The evolution of GIO Path model occurred during four decades of the writer’s work as chief pathologist and Laboratory Director at Holy Name Medical Center, in Teaneck, New Jersey. Concurrently he also worked as an allergist, clinical nutritionist, and a board-certified physician in environmental medicine.  clinical integrationist, allergist, immunopathologist, 

with concurrent clinical work as a clinical integrationist. For better control and/or reversal of chronic diseases, the writer thinks energetically and sharply focus on the three primary energetic systems of the body: gut, insulin, and oxygen. Putting the first letters of this trifecta, I designated my program of self-learning – self-empowerment-self-healing GIO Path.

The GIO Path

The GIO Path

Why Focus on Gut, Insulin, and Oxygen? 

Specifically, why does the author sharply focus on gut, insulin, and oxygen? Let him count his reasons:

  • First, because we humans are, first and foremost, energy beings and therefore, first and foremost, should think energetically for health and healing.

  • Second, because gut, insulin, and oxygen are the three primary energetic systems of the body;

  • Third, because the gut-insulin-oxygen trifecta forms the three legs of the primary structures and functions of health and healing; 

  • Fourth, because to prevent and reverse all chronic diseases, all issues of  gut, insulin, and oxygen must be clearly understood and effectively addressed.

  • Fifth. because all chronic diseases are rooted in disturbances of the gut, insulin, and oxygen energetic systems of the body;

  • Sixth, because in the author’s experience, chronic diseases can be neither prevented nor prevented without vigorous efforts to sustain the energetic gut-insulin-oxygen trifecta;

  • Seventh, because there is fundamental conflict between chemistry of drug medicine and energetics of self-learning-to-self-empowering-to-self-healing plan. Drugs mostly are blockade agents (acid blockers, enzyme blockers, cel membrane channel blockers, so on, whereas energetic remedies with nutrientss are enabling substances.)of because medical corporate America profits from diseases, not from health, its primary profitability interests are not concordant with the primary interest of unwell persons to get well self-learning-to-self-empowering-to-self-healing plan.

  • Eighth, because medical corporate America profits from diseases, not from health, and its primary profitability interests are not concordant with the primary interest of unwell persons to get well by self-learning-to-self-empowering-to-self-healing plan.

  • Ninth, because the fundamentals of the three legs of the primary structures of life – gut, insulin, and oxygen can be taught and learned well by people without medical and biology background.

  • Tenth, because seminal advances in science and technology make it possible for making seminal advances in understanding the energetic bases of the beginning of all disease.

  • Eleventh, because because, blocker drugs suppress symptoms (and so are needed in acute illness) but they do not promote healing pathways.

  • Twelvth, because, in general,, the effectiveness and safety of indigenous non-drug therapies can be more easily judged. learned and taught when addressing the matters of gut, insulin, and oxygen than by focusing on a multitude of minor energetic systems of the body.

  • Thirteenth, because, in general indigenous non-drug therapies cost much less than drugs.

  • Fourteenth, because seminal advances in science and technology make it possible for making seminal advances in understanding the energetic bases of the beginning of all disease.

  • Fifteenth, because seminal advances in science and technology make it possible for making seminal advances in understanding the energetic bases of the beginning of all disease.

  • Sixteenth, because the old ways of naming diseases and then naming drugs to treat them are not working.

  • Seventeenth, because, the prevalence rates of nearly all immune-inflammatory, enviromental, and degenerative chronic diseases worldwide are showing leapfrogging rises.

  • Eighteenth, because the old ways of naming diseases and then naming drugs to treat them are yielding unsatisfactory long-term results.

  • Nintheenth, because natural energetic therapies based on physics of health generally cost much less than treatments based on chemistry of diseases and drugs.

  • Twentieth, because in general,, the effectiveness and safety of indigenous non-drug therapies can be more easily judged. learned and taught when addressing the matters of gut, insulin, and oxygen than by focusing on a multitude of minor energetic systems of the body.

  • Twenty First, because seminal advances in science and technology make it possible for making seminal advances in understanding the energetic bases of the beginning of all disease. 


 

Chilling Leapfrogging Prevalences of Diverse Chronic Diseases 

  • Everywhere one looks, there are chilling increases in the prevalences of nearly all immune-inflammatory, environment-related, and degenerative disorders:

  • From autism to Alzheimer’s disease,

  • From fatty disease of the liver in children to diseases of the liver in adults,

  • From the breast cancer in young women to prostate cancer in young men.

  • From GERD-gastritis complex in adults to GERD-gastritic complex in children,

  • From infertility due to polycystic ovarian syndrome in teeange young women to very low trestosteron in young men,

  • From asthma in all age groups to immune-inflammatory diseases in all ages.


One of the Most Disconcerting Reality of Our Time – Leapfrogging Prevalence of Autism Worldwide

 

Consider the numbing reality of the data concerning the autism spectrum worldwide:

  • One in 5000 in 1975

  • One 5 in 35 in 2016

  • The autism prevalence data published in the Journal of American Medical Association. in 2016 begins as a near-horizontal line, turns into a curve, and in 2016 ends with a nearly vertical line.

 

Consider the case of the rising prevalence of autism spectrum, I rest my case by reproducing here a dramatic graph reproduced from the science journal, Nature (Nov.3, 2011):

Figure 1. Rising Prevalence Rates of the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) from 1975 to 2016 Define the Scale of the   Neuro-developmental Challenge Facing People Worldwide. The Source of Data for the Most Disconcerting Part of the Graph for Recent Years of 2010 to 2016 Is the Journal of American Medical Association.51

What might fuel this rising prevalence of autism? The initial response to this question is likely to be another question: Is it the result of gene mutations or could it be due to environmental factors? For deliberating the genetic-environmental dynamics of autism, the following questions shed considerable light on the matter:

  1. In human biology in the larger evolutionary context, what are the primal movers of structural and functional changes, genetic mutations or environmental changes?

  2. If the genetic mutations are considered to be the primary cause of autism, then why are the autism genes getting angrier by the decade?

  3. The prevalence rates of some other neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood – attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, pandevelopment disorder, and tourette syndrome – are also rising, therefore the question: why are the genes for these disorders getting angrier by the decade?

  4. The prevalence rates of some non-neurological disorders of childhood – fatty disease of the liver, Type 2 diabetes, and GERD-gastritis complex, kidney stones among others has also risen rapidly. Therefore, the question: Why are the genes for these disorders getting angrier by the decade?

  5. If sufficient number of genetic mutations due to dietary and/or environmental factors are behind the growing anger of genes for the childhood disorders mentioned above, might there be some commonality among them?

  6. Since oxygen-signaling and insulin signaling are the two primary energetic signaling systems of the body, and immune-inflammatory processes are the major mechanisms of cellular injury, might the mito-myco-minro trio represent the foundational commonality in neurodevelopmental disorders?

  7. Finally, might we not anticipate that integrative plans that effectively address the issues of attenuated oxygen signaling, accentuated insulin signaling, and persistent non-infectious immune-inflammatory entities results that are superior to those obtained with genetic modifications reported so far.


GIO PATH –  Why Gut-Insulin, and Oxygen?

Why Gut-Insulin, and Oxygen?

 

Gut-Insulin-Oxygen (GIO) Path to Health and Healing

Structures Confine and Restrict.

Energies Extend and Enrich.

Enlarged Heart, Swollen Liver, Shrinking brains Are Structural Limitations.

Gut Flora, Insulin, and Oxygen (GIO) are Bioenergetic Functional Entities.

Enlarged Heart, Swollen Liver, Shrinking brains Are Structural Limitations.


Living With One’s Disease Is Confining and Limiting.

Living beyond one’s disease is Liberating and empowering.


Names of Diseases Are Isolating and Weakening.

Gut Flora, Insulin, and oxygen (the GIO trio) Are Connected and connecting.


 

GIO Path is Self-learning to self-empowering to self-healing.

 


Beyond Preoccupation With Structures of Anatomy,

Celebrating Functional Bioenergetics


Links to Seven Video Seminars on Deep Healing

The above ideas are not merely playing with words. Links for seven 40-to50-minute long video seminars in the author’s Seven-Part Series on Deep Healing are included at the end of this message. Readers are invited to watch these videos without cost.


The GIO Path of Health and Healing is bioenergetic path of preserving health and preventing and/or reversing chronic disease by integrating clinical benefits of optimizing the functionalities of  following three dimensions of the human body:

1. Gut ecology and gut microbiome

2.  Insulin signaling and homeostasishomeostasis

3.  Oxygen signaling (molecular biology of oxygen).

The GIO Path is grounded in established scientific facts of bioenergetics of oxygen and insulin signaling and the known adverse effects on these two primary bioenergetic systems of disturbances of gut ecology and gut microbiome.

Gut-Insulin-Oxygen Trifecta (The GIO Path)

– A Major Leap Forward For Self-Learning-to-Self-Empowering-to-Self Healing

The GIO Path is a radical departure from diverse systems of classifying and treating chronic diseases. Simply stated, the GIO Path is based on the study and clinical application of body bioenergetics in evaluating health, detecting impeded cellular bioenergetic, and restoring the optimal body organs systems mindful of the philosophy and science of holism in health and healing.the heart is visualized as an organ that functions to serve body energetic needs as a supplier of energy responding to varying needs inn health and diosease. Chronic heart diseases, then, is not seen as a matter of an “enlarged heart,” or “blocked coronary arteries,”  or a “failing heart.” The same is true of the lungs, the liver, the brain, and all other body organs. Compromised functionalities involving one of the gut-insulin-oxygen trio (the GIO trio) is the recognized as a problem of all three primary energetic organ systems of the body, all of which need equal attention for long0term results.

The primary clinical benefits of GIO Path in preventing and/or reversing are not drawn from short-term use of spices, herbs, nutrients, minerals, oils, and enzymes. Rather, the clinical benefits are drawn from system-wide repair and renewal of the body bioenergetic systems and restoration of gut ecology and gut microbiome for their long-term health and healing benefits.

The core difference between treating diseases with drugs and healing with GIO path are the following:

First, the former (disease-drug model) largely focuses on short-term symptom suppression with blockade effects of various blocker drugs while the later (GIO Path) seeks restoration of bioenegetic systems of the body for long-term benefits.

Second, the disease-drug model empowers the doctor while the later empowers the patients.

Third, the disease-drug model makes the patient more dependent on the practitioner while the GIO Path is the way of self-learning to self-empowerment to  self-healing.


The GIO Path requires the patient: 

1. To study and learn well the philosophy and science of holism in health and healing;

2. To effectively counter corporate deceptions as well as idealogical distortions of ill-informed health activists;

3. To study and learn well the philosophy and science of holism in health and healing;

4. To undertake, for love of learning, a  path of self-learning to self-empowerment to self-healing

5. Through personal observations learn how the sound science of holism in health and healing To as Become their own well-informed personal health advocates;

6. To learn to preserve health, prevent disease, and reverse chronic diseases by becoming their own primary physicians;

7. To remain students of the above subjects and yet serve as other as teachers in the  field.


 

The GIO Path

G     for Gut

I     for Insulin

O    for Oxygen


In Considerations of the GIO Path, Why Do I Focus on Oxygen, gut, and insulin in all matters of Diabetes-Insulin Health and Healing?

My Simple Answer: Because in my sixty-one year study, research, teaching, publications, and clinical practice,  I observed the best long-lasting results in all chronic diseases (including cancer) with focus on:

  1. Molecular Biology of oxygen

  2. Gut ecology and gut microbiome

  3. Insulin homeostasis

To introduce readers to my academic background and qualifications to address all matters of health and healing:

  1. I am a surgeon (FRCS, Eng)-turned – pathologist (Columbia University, New York) -turned – nutritionist – turned clinical ecologist – turned integrationist;

  2. I am the solo author of all 12 volumes of The Principles and Practice of medicine  (1989-2009), and 27 other books (see my CV on this site for details).

  3. I published 215 papers (many with my research and clinical collaborators) in eminent medical journals (including Lancet, JAMA, Cancer, Kidney International, Am Heart Journal, Am J Clinical pathology, Archives of Pathology, Israeli Journal of Sciences, Environmental Medicine, and others). See my CV on this site for details).

  4. My CV includes a large number of publications on three subjects of molecular biology of oxygen, gut ecology and gut microbiome, and insulin homeostasis.


 

What Are Primal Movers?

  1. In human biology in the larger evolutionary context, what are the primal movers of structural and functional changes, genetic mutations or environmental changes?

  2. If the genetic mutations are considered to be the primary cause of autism, then why are the autism genes getting angrier by the decade?

  3. The prevalence rates of some other neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood – attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, pandevelopment disorder, and tourette syndrome – are also rising, therefore the question: why are the genes for these disorders getting angrier by the decade?

  4. The prevalence rates of some non-neurological disorders of childhood – fatty disease of the liver, Type 2 diabetes, and GERD-gastritis complex, kidney stones among others has also risen rapidly. Therefore, the question: Why are the genes for these disorders getting angrier by the decade?

  5. If sufficient number of genetic mutations due to dietary and/or environmental factors are behind the growing anger of genes for the childhood disorders mentioned above, might there be some commonality among them?

  6. Since oxygen-signaling and insulin signaling are the two primary energetic signaling systems of the body, and immune-inflammatory processes are the major mechanisms of cellular injury, might the mito-myco-minro trio represent the foundational commonality in neurodevelopmental disorders?

  7. Finally, might we not anticipate that integrative plans that effectively address the issues of attenuated oxygen signaling, accentuated insulin signaling, and persistent non-infectious immune-inflammatory entities results that are superior to those obtained with genetic modifications reported so far.
