THE PROCESS OF CELLULAR REJUVENATION
The rejuvenation of cellular/mitochondrial function takes between 12 – 20 weeks on average. There are four stages of healing and regeneration. Each stage takes between 1 – 2 months to complete.
The first stage in the process of cellular regeneration is known as the “Activation Phase.” In this stage the sympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system is gently stimulated to bring about an increased parasympathetic “re-building” effect. This stage takes anywhere between 3 – 6 weeks to complete, depending on the individual.
The second stage of healing is known as the “Hormonal-Metabolic Phase.” In this phase there is declining autonomic sympathetic activity along with greatly increased levels of parasympathetic activity. This ‘allows’ the body to gain much needed energy, which it is then able to use in order to begin the healing and regeneration of cells and tissues. This stage can take anywhere between 4 – 6 weeks depending on the individual.
The third stage is known as the “Transition Phase” from third to fourth phase. This is the beginning of stabilization, but not yet fully stabilized state of the organism. It is the preparatory phase of new functional stabilization within the body. The reserves of adaptation stability have not yet fully developed. This phase is characterized as “Non-Stabile Stability.”
The “Stabilisation Phase” is usually achieved within 12 – 20 weeks, and it is at this point that the body can start the rebuilding and functional restructuring of the homeostatic regulatory control systems. At this stage you may be advised to re-test in 6 months or even 12 months, depending on individual health requirements. This is a general overview, and it is important to bear in mind that each person is a totally unique individual.
