redox_dnaREDOX Health is a new, cutting edge health science.

Cells, at a basic level, convert food into cellular energy. This process is known as the Krebs cycle and REDOX signaling molecules (RSM) are a vital part of this process and are critical to our cellular health.

RSM are miniscule, no larger then 2 – 4 atoms in size and are a combination of hydrogen, oxygen and chloride. RSM serve two purposes in the body. They activate antioxidants so that our cells are able to deal with free radicals and detoxify the body. They also act as messenger molecules both inside and outside of the cells directing cellular actions including cell division.

All health and ageing problems are directly related to the breakdown of the balance of these reactions. In simple terms, as we age our cells become less able to do the job they were designed to. When we have poor health or illness however, the cells are dysfunctional and start doing things they shouldn’t. We see this in diabetes where receptor cells become resistant to the directions of insulin resulting in a rise in blood sugar; in hypertension where cells become damaged due to unchecked oxidative stress, and in cancer where the immune system fails to recognize cells that divide and replicate abnormally. These issues are able to continue because the proper signaling of the cells was not accomplished. This can lead to serious health challenges.

All illness is expressed in one of two ways: a predominance of oxidative stress-related symptoms and signs for example hypertension, heart disease, diabetes and emphysema; or a predominance of inflammatory signs and symptoms such as auto immune disorders, asthma, allergies and cancer.

All health problems are caused by REDOX deficiency where cells are unable to maintain a healthy REDOX potential. Good health can be achieved by addressing these imbalances.

Dr Robertson D Ward states that “Cells by their very nature are driven instinctively to heal and this is directed by REDOX chemistry”. Cells work with other cells in communication so as one cell becomes challenged and dies off, other cells will replicate it so that the body can continue to function. Maintaining a healthy balance of RSM is vital to this process.

REDOX messaging plays a key role in supporting the optimal function of every system of the human body. Click on the images below to read more on the Cardiovascular, Digestive, Endocrine, Immune, Integumentary / Skin, Musculoskeletal, Respiratory & Nervous Systems of the body.

Cardiovascular System

The latest advancements in cardiovascular science tell us that it’s no longer enough just to talk about antioxidants or cholesterol. Read More

Digestive System

Digestive cells rely on REDOX chemistry to do the complex work of absorbing nutrients, maintaining a broad array of microorganisms, and signaling the right messages for maintaining metabolic balance. Read More

Endocrine System

RSM (REDOX signaling molecule) action is the root of glandular function in the body; it is how hormones transmit information. Read More

Immune System

Freedom from catching what’s “going around” is more than simply avoiding germs. It takes a balanced and robust immune system. Redox signaling molecules provide the resources to prep our systems for what may come. Read More

Integumentary System

Skin is completely entrenched in a multitude of redox chemical reactions which must be orchestrated properly for our skin health to support our lives. Read More

Musculoskeletal System

The function of muscle recovery, bone density, healing, ageing and athletic performance are all based on redox created by mitochondria. Read More

Respiratory System

REDOX molecules play a pivotal role in protecting and maintaining health in the respiratory system. Read More

Nervous System

Nerve cells are vulnerable to toxins and damage and have slow repair rates.  REDOX balance can protect from many conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, dementia, insomnia and depression. Read More

All health problems are caused by REDOX dysfunction

The good news is that, following two decades of research, a bio-identical REDOX supplement for the cells is now available.
