The Systemic Theory of Living Systems and Relevance to CAM: Part I: The Theory.
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. No MeSH data available. Related in: MedlinePlus |

Mentions: In every living system the trio I, E, O constitute the three essential sides of a triangle (Fig 3) (17–19). This triangle corresponds to the survival phenomenon, where each side constitutes a different aspect of survival. Together they represent a measure of the survival potential, which by definition is the H of the system. The survival potential or amount of H in any living system can be defined as the mathematical product of its amount of E, I and O. Thus, survival potential = H = E × I × O. It is possible to increase the survival potential H of a living system by increasing any of its three essential elements. Similarly, H can be reduced by a cutback in any of its fundamental components. The E, I, O triangle is not equilateral, because the system's intelligence acts as a generating entity. It is not necessarily a two-dimensional triangle either. It may be spherical, elliptical or hyperbolic. However, the determination of this was not essential to develop the systemic technology. Finally, I is the most important side of the triangle, since it concurrently generates both energy and organization (20). |
