PROFESSOR SSALIíS UNIFIED FIELD THEORY OF DISEASE

 AND NUTRITIONAL CAUSATION OR PREDISPOSITION

The unified field theory of disease and nutritional causation or predisposition.

Disease is any type of disorder or body function which is a result of:

  1. Bacterial, viral, fungal infection.
  2. Degenerative change in cells.
  3. Congenital and Hereditary.

All can be traced back to some nutritional deficit. All diseases would be eliminated from man if the victim were to be fed on a properly balanced diet right from the moment of conception. The development of a fertilised egg into a fetus depends on the availability of nutrients to power and nourish the developing fetus.

These nutrients act as free radical scavengers to protect the body cells from the harmful effects of free radicals that come out of body metabolism. The free radicals are capable of disrupting fetal development. The invasion of body tissues by bacteria, viruses and fungus is dependent on the absence of enough nutrients to strengthen the immune system, which mops up the organisms. The free radicals are the ones which promote the reproduction of all the invading organisms and in turn the organisms promote the production of free radicals.

It is obvious that even congenital or developmental abnormalities can be traced back to nutrition. Nutrition may be affected by the use of toxic substances or drugs that affect cell division leading to abnormalities and congenital defects. One such chemical is thalidomide and the virus called rubella. All these lead to birth degenerative diseases like diabetes, asthma, vascular/heart diseases are all traceable to some nutritional deficit, which causes the cell death in the organs concerned. The pancreas loses the ability to secrete insulin as a result of the degeneration of the cells in the islets of langerhans. These specialist cells die as a result of a nutrition lacking in vitamins and minerals. Taking white sugar from which molasses containing vitamins and minerals are removed during processing leads to one such ways by which diabetes develops. When these nutrients are supplied to the person with diabetes, the situation improves rapidly back to normal.

All body cells develop from what are called stem cells in the embryonic stage. A stem cell requires proper nutrition as found in vegetable foods in their original unprocessed state in order to develop with the adult specialised cells as you find in various body organs like the brain, liver, glands, skin, muscle, bones, intestinal and respiratory tracts. The lack of liberal supplies of these nutrients we find in fruits and vegetables creates a deficiency in the availability of vitamins like A, B, C etc, minerals like iron, zinc, selenium etc, besides plant hormones, enzymes and chlorophyll all of which play an important role in the proper development and specialisation of body cells. Examples of congenital defects that can be traced back to nutrition include, heart defects, spina bifida, missing limbs, hydrocephalus and many others. A liberal supply of vitamins and minerals are vital in this respect. Infections of the mother during pregnancy include viruses like rubella which only occur where antiviral nutrients like vitamin A, C and E are in short supply. The virus disrupts the proper cell divisions required to complete some body organs like the heart etc.

The immune system which protects us from all infections depends on nutrition to produce antibodies and the necessary defence cells like macrophages and lymphocytes. Any deficiency in the necessary nutrients results in weakening of the immune system which is followed by an invasion of the body of bacteria viruses, fungus and even degeneration of body cells. Nutrients help the body to clean itself by mopping up free radicals that we produce during cellular metabolism. These free radicals include hydrogen peroxide, which attacks cell structures if left in position for too long. It can attack vital structures like the cell membrane, the nucleus and mitochondria. The damage they inflict on the cells is what can cause conditions like diabetes when insulin secreting cells (islets of langerhans ) die in increasing numbers till it results in insulin deficiency called diabetes. When nutrients are replenished, the cells regenerate and diabetes can be cured. The same occurs in other body cells where cancer occurs because of the destruction of mitochondria making metabolism using oxidation of glucose impossible for lack of the necessary enzymes in the mitochondria (KREBíS cycle) which power the process. This leads the cells to generate heat energy using fermentation processes and the production of lactic acid. This is the way cancer occurs in body tissues like in the breasts, uterus, lungs, glands and other tissues. 

The cure for cancer must therefore address this anomaly by reconstructing the damaged cell structures and restoring normal body metabolism. Powerful antioxidants, which act as free radical scavengers in the affected parts of the body help the tissues to detoxify itself and prevent further cell, damage from free radicals. The oxygen that is released by hydrogen peroxide can attack cell structures and cause the equivalent of iron rust in the body. In situations like these, one requires to drink a lot of water in order to enable the kidneys to excrete those impurities from the blood circulation where they may continue causing traumatic effects on tissues. Water is an essential part of our nutritional requirements. If the body is denied water supply, it deteriorates rapidly because of dehydration and accumulation of toxic impurities. These impurities which accumulate in tissues cause body damage by depleting the supplies of nutrients from the food taken in daily. The ageing process is perpetuated by this growing nutritional deficit. As we grow we cut down on our intake of the essential nutrients of vitamins and minerals. The sum total of the nutritional deficiency and chronic dehydration is the progressive ageing process we observe in everyday life. In such a situation the body cells fail to reproduce themselves as they should by replacing themselves with identical copies. This is why the hair begins to lose pigmentation and becomes gray and the skin loses its elasticity, eventually becoming rough and wrinkled. This is the reason why cancer incidence increases with age or pollution in the internal and external environment. If we look after ourselves properly by taking a well balanced diet consisting of unprocessed fresh vegetables and fruits, then drink the required amounts of water, then we would be able to maintain our health status close to ideal for many years.

 Medicinal herbs are no more than foods with the required nutrients to correct the cellular nutritional deficiency, that led to the diseased state. The use of Contraceptive pills, over use of antibiotics and smoking are some of the forms of drug abuse which drain heavily on nutrients because of the increased need for detoxification. This is the reason why those who indulge in such practices develop cancer of the breast, lungs, uterus and prostate. Others develop diabetes, Asthma and blood pressure because of the nutritional deficit created by the increase in the demand for nutrients for the detoxification of free radicals.

A disease state like AIDS is a complex manifestation of nutritional deficiencies that include vitamins, minerals, plant hormones, amino acids and enzymes. The body needs plant ingredients found in leafy vegetables e.g. chlorophyll, lecithin and many others. The HIV invades the body by penetrating its cells which are deficient in nutrients and abounding in free radicals. This window of opportunity occurs in all people who indulge in junk foods, drug abuse, over use of antibiotics, fizzy drinks with artificial sweeteners. These factors depress the immune system allowing the virus to successfully establish itself in the body. If the free radicals are regularly mopped up using the free radical scavengers called antioxidants as found in fresh fruit and vegetables, then the virus and cancer cells are eliminated by the power of the immune system.

During sexual union the male partner ejaculates about 2 mls of semen which carry the male spermatozoa. This semen also carries with it nutrients to be used by the sperm and the early embryo. To collect these nutrients in the semen, one pint of the male partnerís blood is stripped of all these elements which include vitamins, minerals, enzymes, hormones etc, etc. Repeated ejaculations can deplete the male partnerís blood of essential elements required by his immune system. The result of such a situation is to make him vulnerable to infections like viruses and STDs including HIV. This is the reason why promiscuous males may easily develop AIDS which means Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. Semen is rich in zinc and selenium both of which are very important for strengthening immunity by providing it with specialised cells called T helper lymphocytes. These T helper lymphocytes go through the thymus gland which prepares them for the battlefield capability against virus invaders. The thymus gland requires a lot of zinc to do the job. Selenium is needed to make the bodyís antioxidant called glutathione peroxidase. This natural antioxidant is very important in clearing out hydrogen peroxide from the body cells. A diet rich in these nutrients will play an important role in protecting us against all infections and cancer. The prostrate gland in the male is the equivalent of the uterus in the female. Both these organs are prone to developing cancer if nutrition is deficient in these essential elements among others.

On the other hand, female partners stand to gain nutrients which are drained out of the male partners blood. Most of the semenís essential ingredients are absorbed into the female circulation through the birth canal. This provides her with the elements mentioned above for added protection against nutritional deficiency diseases that come as a result of a weakened immune system. This explanation could account for the survival phenomenon observed among professional female sex workers in Kenya and Uganda. These prostitutes have been found to survive HIV infection despite their risk factors. It has also been observed that these sex workers begin to succumb to HIV/AIDS when they retire from their profession. This would eliminate the original theory that they have a special genetic make up that protects them against HIV. I am of the opinion that it is the constant liberal supply of essential nutrients that boosts their immunity to the optimum levels capable to resisting STDs.

Herpes Zoster which is a result of chickenpox virus manifesting itself as blisters on the skin is another example of the power of the immune system. This virus only surfaces when the body is malnourished and immune deficient. The development of cancer cells starts when the natural killer cells that hunt and destroy them are weakened by poor nutrition. This poor nutrition may be a result of ingesting overwhelming amounts of toxic substances that require large amounts of nutrients to excrete through the kidneys. If such nutrients are not available then the immune system is weakened and the natural killer cells fail to cope with the cancer cell development in the tissues. This if kept up for long enough, then the particular site develops cancer. These toxic substances like aspartame (Nutrasweet), contraceptive pills, radioactive materials, alcohol, hydrocarbons, asbestos etc, etc. These elements cause the production of free radicals to rise and stagnate in tissues. This stagnation leads to the damage of cell wall, DNA cross links and mitochondria structural damage. This DNA damage leads to genetic mutation and cancer changes. The damage to mitochondria structure leads to the failure of the cell to metabolise glucose using oxygen. As a result of this failure, the cell turns to fermentation to produce heat energy with the production of a toxic lactic acid. This is what cancer cells do. They multiply uncontrollably and destroy normal tissues in the neighbourhood. Some of these uncontrollable cells break off and carry their characteristics to other parts of the body as metastasis that spread destruction and death. This process can be halted by providing the tissues with the required nutrients to repair the cellular damage in DNA and mitochondria. These nutrients must also strengthen the immune cells to be capable of destroying the cancer cells. This is possible through the use of herbal nutrients which contain the necessary ingredients to do the job. This has been achieved in cases of breast cancer, cancer of uterus, melanoma and other cancers.

Hormone dependent disorders like diabetes, thyroid gland dysfunction, menopause, libido and many others can be eliminated by providing these necessary nutrients by using diet and where required, food supplements. Menopause and loss of virility comes because of the progressive reduction in our food intake as we grow older. As a result of eating processed foods like white sugar, white flour and processed grain where the nutrients are removed and fed to lower animals, we develop deficiency diseases like diabetes, scurvy, eczema, lupus and asthma. These come about because our bodyís immune systems have been programmed wrongly because of introducing adverse antigens into the body through vaccinations and inoculations. All these immunity or autoimmune disorders could be corrected by providing the body with the nutrients the body needs to reprogramme the immunity. By providing these supplements we have been successful in eliminating all symptoms and signs of lupus, asthma, eczema, thyroid gland problems and so on.

Stroke which is a result of the blocking of blood clotting could be eliminated. The underlying disorder is in the metabolism of cholesterol leading to partial or complete blockage of a blood vessel. Where there is a blood clot or a ruptured blood vessel and bleeding, you find an accumulation of free radicals, white blood cells in the clot. This pathology needs nutrients to put it right. The cholesterol needs nutrients to facilitate its breakdown into energy. The blood clot and the repair of the damaged blood vessel will be completed by the white blood cells. We have seen this happen in many cases of stroke where paralysis disappeared within weeks or months when the necessary nutrients were provided to the patient. Brain and nerve disorders may develop because of using too much alcohol or a diet deficient in vitamins and minerals. Even psychiatric disorders are a result of the bodyís failure to make the right nerve transmitters for lack of the proper nutrients. Where these mental problems existed, we provided the patients with nutritional supplements and an improved diet.

The result was an improvement or recovery from the dementia of a psychiatric problem.

As a result of the above observations as summarised, the following conclusion was inevitable. The unified field Theory of disease and nutrition (establishes) postulates that all disease states have their origin in some form of malnutrition at one stage or another. Even those arising from genetic defects could be attributed to the influence of a mutation that occurred because of a nutritional defect in the diet of the individual or alternatively the mutation persisted because of lack of proper nutrition. All disease states whether they are congenital, infective, and degenerative have a nutritional factor in their causation and promotion or elimination. Mariandina has a wide spectrum of curative properties that include most of the diseases mentioned above because its formulation includes a wide range of nutrients as was considered essential for the maintenance of optimum nutrition of all types of body cell.

The Herbs that were selected for inclusion in the Mariandina formulation were those that our research had established to be composed of properties with great nutritional value which is the basis of their medicinal value and curative properties.

Professor Charles Ssali

Mariandina is a natural formulation for the maintenance of good health in people of all ages. It provides the body with natural nutrients that are deficient in ones diet. These deficiencies include vitamins, minerals, enzymes, peptides etc. that the body requires on a daily basis. Mariandina A, B and J can provide those requirements because they are made of natural ingredients obtained from natural foods, vegetables, fruits and plant hormones. 

Those who are sick because of bacterial, fungal and virus infections need additional nutrients because of their action to boost the immunity and the bodyís fighting power against disease. To create Mariandina we went back to learn how Mother Nature puts together her medicinal herbs and fruits from which foods come. The fruits and vegetables spoken of in Genesis chapter 3 are the way forward to good health. They provide nutrients and spare parts for our bodies. They are the source of healing and the prevention of degenerative processes of body cell, which if unchecked lead to ageing. This is the secret of the Biblical Tree of Life. The damage to the body from pollution, poor nutrition, disease, stress and injury can be repaired better by these natural food supplements than by use of chemicals which inflict further damage to the body because of their toxicity.

Mariandina A is an advanced unique natural composition consisting of 28 natural herbs, vitamins, minerals and rare elements such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic acid, Citrus Bioflavanoids, Iodine, Niacin, Biotin, Calcium, Zinc, Iron, Selenium, Copper, Manganese and Ginseng plus many more which boost the Immune System, repair body cells and tissues, cleanse, provide stress relief and energise the body.

Mariandina B is an advanced natural composition consisting of 23 natural herbs and vitamins such as Siberian Ginseng Powder, Alfalfa leaf, Golden seal Root, Vitamin E, Gotu Kola, Betacarotene, Kola nut, Bee pollen, Liquorice root, Hawthorn Berry, Capsicum, Yellow Dock leaf, Echinacea, Purpurea, Ginkgo Biloba leaf, Garlic, Co-enzyme Q-10, Vitamin C, Di-basic Calcium phosphate and Guarana that increase blood circulation in the brain, sexual organs and heart to rejuvenate them to function more efficiently and overcome stress.

Mariandina J is a unique natural composition of 29 powerful herbs such as Calendula, Echinacea, Astragalus, St. Johns wort, Bed Straw, Mistletoe, Thyme,Camomile, Lecithin, Devils claw, Spirulina, Dandelion, Codonopsis, Osha root, Berberis, Aquifolium, Garlic, and Calmus root plus many more that detoxify and cleanse the body.

Marindina Herbal Syrup is a nutritional booster specially formulated to help maintain energy, health and vitality in both adults and children. It contains a range of vitamins and minerals enriched with herbal extracts like Ginkgo Ginseng Sarsaparilla, etc., all in a base of honey and malt, balanced in a pleasant blackcurrant taste. It is suitable for vegetarians. Recommended Daily Intake: Children 3 - 6 years, one teaspoonful (5ml) daily. Adults and children over 6 years, two teaspoonfuls (10ml) daily.

How to take Mariandina

When using the Mariandina products for General Health, it is advisable to take one of each of Mariandina range A, B and J in the morning and the same after the evening meal.

This ensures detoxification while you sleep or during working hours. A midday course is useful for those desiring quicker results or if in a poor health status.

Higher doses are recommended for disease states where the user is also advised to drink one or two litres of water per day to wash out the impurities through the kidneys. In some mild conditions, one may use Mariandina A alone, but in severe illnesses, Mariandina J and B should be used in conjunction with Mariandina A. Adults should use two of each three times a day. In all cases, the addition of formula B one capsule three times a day helps to speed up benefits.

Children over the age of three may have one fourth of the adult dosage of Mariandina A, B and J. Those aged 10-15 years may take half the adult dose. Where tablets are available they may be crashed and mixed with the childís food or spoonful of honey.

One should continue with the usual treatment until it is no longer necessary.

For male disorders, the use of Mariandina A, B and J in dosages of two capsules of Mariandina A, two capsules of Mariandina J and one capsule of Mariandina B twice a day. This course is recommended for at least three months before one can reduce it to once a day. This course may be taken three times a day in some cases.

In all cases smoking and use of habitual drugs routinely is discouraged.

For those using contraceptive pills, smokers and alcoholics, the use of Mariandina is recommended in higher dosage because most of the nutrients are used to clear the backlog of impurities and toxins stored in the body fat.

In cases of high blood pressure, it is advisable to take Mariandina A, B and J together with the anti hypertensive drugs from your own doctor until the blood pressure is controlled. This may take over six months. During this period the Mariandina helps the body to clear itself of cholesterol and open up coronary heart blood vessels and improve brain circulation. This reduces the risk of stroke, heart attack and Kidney failure.

Patients diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis should use Mariandina A, B and J as indicated in the chart. Skin and Intestinal disorders may be treated as recommended in the chart.

All users should increase their daily intake of fruits, vegetables and water.
