What is cellular medicine?


The German doctor and scientist Dr. Matthias Rath is the founder of the Cellular Medicine approach. This approach is based on the new scientific understanding that common diseases such as cardiovascular disease, strokes, and cancer are the result of a chronic deficiency of micronutrients in the cells of the body. We now know that preventing this deficiency can prevent these health problems from occurring! With this understanding, Cellular Medicine represents the beginning of a new era in the field of medicine and general healthcare, and offers new insight into the causes of chronic diseases. The root cause of most of today’s diseases can be found in the body’s cells and is the result of a chronic shortage of vitamins, minerals, and other essential micronutrients.

Cellular Medicine is able to answer the question as to why it is that every second person now dies of cardiovascular disease. The answer is that the heart and arterial system are highly stressed as a result of the heart’s continuous pumping action. In fact, they are the body’s most active organs. This results in the cells of the cardiovascular system requiring large amounts of essential micronutrients in order to perform their functions optimally.

Just as the mechanically most active part of a car – the engine – requires special care and a regular replenishment of oil, the heart as the motor of the body also needs special care and a regular supply of micronutrients as fuel. However, conventional medicine currently remains symptom-oriented and focuses its attention at the level of the body’s organs. This approach fails to take into account the fact that the human body is made up of millions of cells, the functioning of which determine sickness and health. Modern Cellular Medicine understands this, and its scientific approach is based on precisely this very principle.
