Perpetual Health is a course in health that you can take one day/one page at a time. I have always appreciated the beauty of perpetual calendars, so why not a perpetual course?
Each day’s lesson explores a single health concept or factor, addresses it in depth, and then moves on. By the time you return to the lesson, a full year later, much of what you read a year ago will either seem new to you again, or be an old friend that you are happy to revisit, expanding your understanding and appreciation for the depth of the message.
Whatever you're looking for - weight loss, more energy, freedom from disease, a total feeling of well-being that you may never have experienced before in your life - you can have it. Make this year YOUR YEAR, with Perpetual Health.
The sum of the body’s anabolic and catabolic processes is known as metabolism.
Catabolism is the breaking down or destruction of complex structures into simpler ones. Usually, energy is released as a result of this process. Catabolism occurs in many different ways, at different levels of scale throughout the body. In our digestive tract, catabolism is how we convert large molecules such as polysaccharides, lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins, into smaller structures such as monosaccharides, fatty acids, nucleotides (the building blocks of DNA and RNA,) and amino acids. Most of the catabolic processes that occur within the body are influenced by signals known as catabolic hormones. Discovered in the early 20th century, the classic catabolic hormones include: cortisol, glucagon, and adrenaline (and other catecholamines.)
Cortisol is the principal steroid hormone produced by the adrenal cortex. It plays a role in regulating carbohydrate metabolism and immune responses, and helps maintain blood pressure. When natural or synthetic cortisol is used as a pharmaceutical, it is known as hydrocortisone.
Glucagon is a hormone secreted by the pancreas that helps regulate blood glucose levels by working in opposition to insulin, raising blood glucose levels by stimulating the breakdown of glycogen by the liver.
Adrenaline, also known as epinephrine because it is manufactured near the kidney’s nephrons, (the proper chemical name is: aminohydroxyphenylpropionic acid,) is produced in the medulla of the adrenal glands. Adrenaline is involved in the “flight or fight” response, and helps the liver release glucose into the bloodstream from the breakdown of glycogen.
The energy and fuel released as a result of catabolism is used by the cells to drive the body’s anabolic processes.
Anabolism, sometimes referred to as “constructive metabolism,” is the synthesis in living organisms of complex structures from simpler ones, often resulting in the storage of fuel and/or energy. Anabolism is, essentially, a growth process, resulting in cell differentiation, increases in size, or an increase in cellular concentration (such as an increase in mineral matter within a bone.) All growth and repair processes are anabolic in nature.
Anabolism and catabolism are the yin and yang of metabolism, the components that comprise metabolism. They are opposites, yet each sets the stage for the other. While metabolic rate can be measured, and is defined as fuel use per unit of time, the body has no metabolism of its own, per se. Basal metabolic rate can also be measured, and is defined as the minimal fuel use per unit of time, when at rest. In hygiene, we recognize that even deeper states of rest can be achieved than those typically seen when we are eating and digesting our daily meals, hence we also recognize the existence of a fasting basal metabolic rate, which typically runs ten to fifteen percent lower than ones basal metabolic rate.
