Functional Medicine Expert Dr. Bill Cole Explains…

“There has never been a perfectly healthy person that’s full of dysfunctional cells. If you want to be well, you have to fix your cells.” – Dr. Bill Cole

How many times have you just felt…off? Your digestion is off or you’re sluggish or tired and irritable, or you have a nagging stomach ache or migraine that just won’t go away. Or maybe you just don’t have enough energy to get through the day and truly thrive.

Whatever it is, you decide enough is enough. You go to the doctor and they run some tests, but everything comes back “normal.” You’re happy that nothing is “wrong” but you’re simultaneously incredibly frustrated. Because now it feels like you’ve reached a dead end: the tests say you’re fine, but your body is telling you otherwise.

Where do you go from there?

Functional medicine expert Dr. Bill Cole knows the answer, and it has everything to do with your cells. Dr. Cole specializes in cellular health, addressing the root causes of chronic health issues. He is the founder and creator of the Key Cellular Nutrition (KCN) and Cellular Health Accelerator (CHA) programs, and he’s been helping thousands of people reclaim their energy and heal their bodies from the inside out. 

So, what is cell regeneration?

In order to explain it, Dr. Cole uses this analogy: Think about a house. If the foundation of a house is bad, can the structure be good? The answer is obviously no.

Well, the metaphorical human house foundation is our cells, because that’s what we are made of. Every tissue, organ, and gland is made of cells and so every function in our body comes from our cells. In effect, it’s not your heart that is beating. It’s your heart cells that are beating!

In this way, all symptoms and all diseases are caused by cellular dysfunction. What keeps our cells healthy is a healthy cycle of letting the good stuff into our cells and letting the bad stuff out of them (the good stuff = nutrients, for example, and the bad stuff = toxins).

What’s causing bad health today is something called…life! We have stressors that are negatively impacting the health of our cells. Physical (injuries, poor posture, lack of movement, etc.), emotional (anxieties, fears, the stress of life, etc.), and chemical (toxins from food, air, products, water, etc.) stress.

All of these stressors create damage on the cell membrane which creates inflammation. That inflammation creates a barrier which means we can’t get the good stuff in and the bad stuff out of the cells. So what happens? The bad stuff builds up inside our cell.

Makes perfect sense, right?

Thankfully, our body has an amazing capacity to heal. You know this is true if you’ve ever gotten a cut and watched it heal over time. So once you start to deal with the stressors in your life and therefore begin to heal your cells, your body can heal itself.

I know that feels daunting, because how are you supposed to get rid of all of your daily stressors? To be alive is to be stressed!

Don’t fret. If you think of the stressors as a 3 legged stool, that means that you may not be able to get rid of all 3 categories of stressors, but if you can get rid of at least one of those legs (or categories), you can begin to regenerate the cells. Because one cannot sit on a two-legged stool.

SO – the only question left is: do you want to heal your cells?
