(A) EXCESS DRIVES DEGENERATIVE DISEASE
(B) DEFICIENCY DRIVES DEGENERATIVE DISEASE
Can we combine (A) and (B)?
And say more accurately:
(C) IMBALANCES DRIVE DEGENERATIVE DISEASE.
Corollary to (A) Excesses drive deficiencies (Example: excess protein in the form of supplements can drive calcium deficiency; but not excess milk, because milk is more balanced with respect to calcium and protein. Other examples: Excess zinc depletes copper; excess copper depletes manganese).
Corollary to (B) Deficiencies drive excesses (Example: deficiency of antioxidants adds to sugar cravings – natural deficiencies are triggering mechanisms to get us to eat whole fruit; we opt for empty pastry calories). [Wild speculation: can/do excesses of essential nutrients drive deficiencies in V3 nutrients? – the dark side of supplements? Perhaps if the essential nutrients are excreted as complexes with V3 nutrients?]
(A) and (B) and the corollaries of (A) and (B) define a downward spiral, or less precisely, a vicious cycle.
