Bioregulatory Medicine & Systems Biology
Bioregulatory systems medicine is a paradigm that aims to advance current medical practices. The basic scientific and clinical tenets of this approach embrace an interconnected picture of human health, supported largely by recent advances in systems biology, genomics, and physics and focus on the implications of multi-scale interconnectivity for improving therapeutic approaches to disease.
The foundation of the bioregulatory systems medicine model is an appreciation of the patient’s autoregulatory capacity. Whereas human biology exists as nested levels of physiological networks, i.e., molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, system, etc., the autoregulatory capacity includes both the specific networks within this hierarchy as well as the interactions between them.
Thus, bioregulatory systems medicine embraces this interconnectivity among networks as the global autoregulatory network and posits that the state of an individual’s autoregulatory network is a key determinant and indicator of patient health. Bioregulatory treatment represents a personalized approach through a multifaceted therapeutic process. This approach involves all levels of being (structural, biochemical, functional, energetic, psychoemotional) and assists (not suppresses) the bioregulatory and adaptive networks of the body.
