The tissues of the body are continually subjected to external stressors and universal forces. The effect of these forces upon the cell in the human body can be measured algebraically. If we divide these effects into units we can classify them as gains and losses. The gains are those experiences in which the cell successfully adapts to the external stress. The losses are those experiences in which the cell fails to adapt the universal forces of stress. The cellular result caused by that failure to adapt may or may not be measurable. When losses are subtracted from gains what remains is called “survival value” .
Survival value is the unit of adaptational success of the cell. As a hypothetical case consider a cell bombarded by ionizing radiation in a cancer patient. As this cell adapts to that universal stress it gains from the experience. However, if there are damaging effects caused by that radiation to certain areas or parts of the cell, the cell has also experienced some loss. After the loss has been deducted, that which remains is the survival value. We will continue this in part two tomorrow have a blessed day! Love Bellomo Chiropractic!!
