Clinical: describes a medical condition (complete signs and symptoms) necessary for justification of intervention by medications or surgery.


Sub-clinical conditions are low-grade, below radar issues of suffering and degeneration.

Clinical is the opposite of sub-clinical, low grade status. Most suffering and issues of aging are low-grade in nature; meaning, it is all in the patient’s head.  i.e. non diagnosable!

If you suffer or are aging and losing control of your body and your health, but do not qualify for clinical status, then your status is sub-clinica/ low-grade.

Low-grade status is a wake-up call where you have plenty of room to heal and time is on your side regardless of your age.

Aging and disease begin long before CLINICAL signs and symptoms manifest.  Aging is driven by low-grade inflammation that progressively damages the terrain of the bio-electric body. Clinical means the practitioner can conjure a diagnosis in order to justify medical intervention.

Hormonal dysfunction of leptin, insulin and adrenaline play a very big part in systemic, low-grade inflammation and the development of the big four: cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and arthritis.

Inflammation that is above low-grade status is called CLINICAL INFLAMMATION because you cannot have a serious, life threatening condition without it.  Clinical inflammation drives severe pain and suffering associated with a morbid condition or long term, degenerative disease.

Most disorders, syndromes and many so-called dis-eases begin as low-grade conditions of inflammation and suffering; symptoms that have not taken-on clinical status i.e. undiagnosed by a physician.

Suffering associated with serious dis-ease eventually gets a label from the doctor along with the words: disease, syndrome or disorder. You job is to recognize the symptoms of low-grade status BEFORE a diagnosis occurs.

People live their lives in the non-clinical status of low-grade inflammation and deterioration for failure to grasp the nature of the problems they suffer and the amazing healing capacity of the body when we assist the process.

Settling for marginal existence and fear of the unknown does not work. They are a formula for more of the same.
