The Systemic Theory of Living Systems and Relevance to CAM: Part I: The Theory.

Olalde Rangel JA - Evid Based Complement Alternat Med (2005)

Bottom Line: Energy-stimulating phytomedicines increase available energy and decrease total entropy of an open biological system by providing negative entropy.SM postulates that the state of health, H, of an individual, is effectively equal to the product of the strength of each factor H = O x E x I.SM observes that when all three factors are brought back to ideal levels, patients' conditions begin the recovery to normal health.

ABSTRACT
The Systemic Theory of Living Systems is being published in several parts in eCAM. The theory is axiomatic. It originates from the phenomenological idea that physiological health is based on three factors: integrity of its structure or organization, O, functional organic energy reserve, E, and level of active biological intelligence, I. From the theory is derived a treatment strategy called Systemic Medicine (SM). This is based on identifying and prescribing phytomedicines and/or other medications that strengthen each factor. Energy-stimulating phytomedicines increase available energy and decrease total entropy of an open biological system by providing negative entropy. The same occurs with phytomedicines that act as biological intelligence modulators. They should be used as the first line of treatment in all ailments, since all pathologies, by definition, imply a higher than normal organic entropy. SM postulates that the state of health, H, of an individual, is effectively equal to the product of the strength of each factor H = O x E x I. SM observes that when all three factors are brought back to ideal levels, patients' conditions begin the recovery to normal health.

Mentions: All living systems are, by definition, functional units that seek maximum survival (13). The cell is the simplest form of a living system that functions as a basic building block of the living universe, just as the atom does in matter (Fig. 2). Conversely, a virus is the simplest living unit, which in some situations acts as destroyer of living systems. I is the backbone of every living system in equilibrium. I controls, regulates, adapts and develops the living system. Chaos occurs in its absence. The proof of this is that no living system can exist without intelligence. The intelligence of the system creates and utilizes E with the prime role of achieving O and evolving into a higher system (14). I also creates/builds O with the primary end of producing E. There may be a corollary: as a consequence, I cannot act optimally when subjected to a severe deficiency of E. The concept of a functional biological Intelligence, as differentiated from the structural, is not fully described in this section since it will be explained in more detail in the next articles. The author is aware that this is an essential concept that should be fully covered. I ask the reader to bear with me until the publication of the next article. Similarly, its relationship with energy is further developed.
