Basics of Dr. Ali’s Oxygen Model of Diabetes
Majid Ali, M.D.
Simply stated, the Oxygen Model of Diabetes explains how diabetes is caused, perpetuated, and complicated by impaired oxygen signals and detergent functions. A video on the subject is linked after this brief article.
My Oxygen Model of Diabetes is an extension of my Oxygen Model of Health and Disease. It is a unifying model that explains all aspects of diabetes —causes, clinical course, consequences, and control—on the basis of disturbed oxygen function. The most important among these compromised and/or blocked functions are: (1) oxygen signaling; (2) oxygen’s ATP energy generation; (3) oxygen’s detergent functions; (4) oxygen’s cellular detox functions; (5) oxygen-regulated cell membrane and matrix functions; (6) oxygen’s cellular repair roles.
The Oxygen Model of Diabetes provides a simple model that allows physicians to reduce complexities of diverse clinical syndromes into a workable simplicity.
This model predicts that ongoing research will reveal that components of acidosis (excess acidity), oxidosis (increased oxidative stress), and CUD (clotting-unclotting dysequilibrium) will be found to play important roles in the pathology and clinical features of Diabetes.
The crucial importance of the Unifying Oxygen Model of Diabetes is that it:
* Explains the scientific basis of primary aging processes in the body;
* Sheds light how health can be preserved by addressing all oxygen-related issues;
* Elucidates how toxicities of foods, environments, and thoughts cause tissue injury and disease;
* Reveals the mechanisms by which various detox therapies work (Oxygen is the primal detergent which removes cellular grease and allows cells to breathe freely);
* Allows the formulation of rational and effective designs for reversing chronic diseases; and
* Provides explanations of mechanisms by which time-honored natural remedies work.
Diabetes is a an insulin problem long before it becomes a glucose (sugar) problem. For details of the scientific knowledge of the Oxygen Model of Diabetes, please go to:
Diabetes Type 2 is, first and foremost, an oxygen problem. This view of diabetes—The oxygen Model of Diabetes stated in simple words—has two primary strengths: (1) In understanding then nature of the disorder, it shifts the focus away from raised blood glucose levels and to the insulin receptor dysfunction caused by oxygen-blocking toxicities of foods, environment, and thoughts; and (2) It provides scientific sound treatment plan for de-diabetization. I present in detailed the various aspects of this view in various tutorials of the Insulin toxicity Series.
Insulin receptor dysfunction is caused by “plasticized” (chemicalized) and hardened cell membranes that immobilize the insulin receptors embedded in them. In the Oxygen Model of Diabetes, the metabolic syndrome is visualized as a “gummed-up matrix state and prediabetes is seen as a “mitochondrial dysfunction state.” The strategies for the prevention and reversal of diabetes yield better long-term clinical results if diabetes is recognized as a “dysfunction oxygen signaling,” or dysox, state.
