Illness as overactive or underactive, acute or chronic

Acute or chronic disease, hyperactivity or hypoactivity

In our article Health and disease: definitions, we define what health and disease since different criteria, from ecology to Chinese medicine, through conventional medicine, homeopathy and natural medicine.

In one of these definitions of health and illness we focus on the viewpoint of Iridology. This definition of the disease linked disease with a state of hyperactivity or hypoactivity of the organs or tissues of our body. This concept of hyper-or hypo is quite old. D. D. Palmer, the father of chiropractic in the nineteenth century claimed that the abnormality in the body's functioning is directly related to hyperactivity or hypoactivity in the nerve supply of the tissues, and this in turn causes the tissues and organs become functionally hypoactive or hyperactive.

This view of Palmer on the cause of the disease can also be used as a principle for understanding the overall health.

If a body has a normal activity level we say that is healthy and balanced. In the same way that when we do not want to eat food that is too cold or too hot, histological activity right in the middle is associated with good health.

We all know what happens if a child is hyperactive or hypoactive. A hyperactive child is a source of concern for parents and is not desirable, but seeing a child is just as worrying hypoactive. Similarly happens with our cells, tissues, systems, apparatuses and organs. If one operates in excess tissue by increasing the flow is said to be nervous or is hyperactive in an acute state. Conversely, if the organ or tissue functioning below normal are said to be found in state hypoactive or subacute, chronic and degenerative. In any of these situations there is a disturbance. If this state continues hyperactive or hypoactive in time leads to the symptoms associated with their disease. And we must understand that if a body is not working properly can interfere with the malfunction of other organs. Hence the popular saying that surgery leads to another.


All organic hyperactivity is an acute condition. Excess flow is both nervous central nervous system or autonomic nervous system to the particular organ. In all these cases the nervous hyperactivity towards the body in question provides a higher supply of blood and, therefore, of nutrient. Hyperactivity is organic which is associated with all diseases ending in "itis". That is, bronchitis, pharyngitis, otitis, etc.. is a state of hyperactivity. Is organic effort to dissolve, break down, neutralize, destroy everything that is accumulating toxic or harming the tissue or organ.

Symptoms associated with hyperactivity are the following:

  • You feel bad when at rest.
  • Pain and discomfort
  • Heat
  • Redness
  • Inflammation
  • Fever
  • Irritation
  • Sensitivity
  • Pus
  • Discharge
  • Swelling

It is noteworthy that unless one is hypoactive and chronic tissue by inheritance, tissues always go through this state of disorder (acute) before becoming chronic. So the body works. No woman can have a baby without being pregnant.

Hyperactivity necessary step for healing

For any health problem, a necessary first step, essential to return to normal health or is going through a period of hyperactivity. Acute conditions, inflammatory, are a first step in the healing process.

In our article Hering's law and healing processes and explain something about this matter. In homotoxicology also explained the importance of moving to vicariaciones regressive. That is, if we are in a chronic or degenerative no cure if we passed the acute or hyperactivity.

However, understanding this is a real problem for the health of people in general. When we go through a sharp, hyper, people want to reduce fever, inflammation and pain, so they resort to suppressing medications to relieve your symptoms. What people do not realize is that this leads to no real cure or restore their health or quality of life, but to chronicity. Drugs do not cure, so does our own body with the mechanisms that nature provides.

If we properly treat hyperactive or acute processes lead us to health. Incorrect care or suppressive, and the probable negligence, will lead to chronicity. And while chronic conditions are less irritating than the acute stages of the disease, may be more destructive in the long term.


The organic hypoactivity is associated with the chronic state. In this case the nervous flow to the organ or tissue is deficient system. The tissue does not receive power, and blood, and the nutrients it needs to do its job. We can say that all diseases ending in "osis" are diseases hypoactivity, and all calls degenerative diseases.

Symptoms associated with hypoactivity are the following:

  • Low temperature affected tissue
  • Stiffness
  • Dull pain or lack of pain
  • Loss of function
  • Failure to download
  • Lack of pus
  • Little or no inflammation

The hypoactivity diseases or chronic illnesses are more annoying than painful, but they are serious. Develop primarily for not adequately addressed the symptoms of hyperactivity or acute illness. Another possible cause of a disease or chronic hypoactivity is hereditary weakness of the organ or organ system.

Unlike hyperactive diseases, chronic diseases are more difficult to treat for physicians. Usually, the patient is told he has to learn to live with it. At this point, the disease is controlled rather than cured. This is where the business of the pharmaceutical multinationals comes into play. Selling suppressing drugs is very lucrative, and is dedicated to the pharmaceutical industry: the maintenance of chronic or hypoactive state, not the cure.

This type of treatment of chronic illness is a real obstacle to healing. Only allows the patient feel more comfortable in their chronic state while moving irresistibly to degenerative state, trying to postpone the day you have to be accountable. This is where most of the surgery comes into play, it's as a last resort after years of neglect or suppression.

When we got to the degenerative condition is severe hypoactivity. The lack of nervous energy, oxygen, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, hormones, blood, from a normal immune reaction, leading to the destruction of tissue or organ. At this stage the tissue retains very few, if any, ability to function. The end result of a degenerative disease is the failure of the body in an attempt to survive in a state of chronic poisoning.

How to know if my organs are hyperactive or hypoactive: iridology

We have said the formula to see if our tissues are hyper or hypoactive. Usually, if we diagnose "itis" or "osis". We have also described the symptoms of both states. However, there is a foolproof, easy, non-invasive, comprehensive and has no comparison to anything to know at a glance the average state of our body and every organ system: iridology.

Iridology is the science that studies the iris, but I studied from this point of view we have outlined: hyperactivity or hypoactivity. Iridology does not diagnose illness, nor the ranks, but speaks of hyper or hypo organic.

Iridology can not tell if you have a stomach ulcer, but can you tell us if the portion of the iris reflects that depicts the stomach shows gastric tissue is hypoactive.

Iridology can not tell if you have gallstones, but can you tell us if the portion of the iris reflects depicts gallbladder tissue sample is hypoactive.

Iridology can not measure if you have a fever, but it can tell us whether certain portions of your iris representing the throat, pharynx, bronchi, etc.. are in a state of hyperactivity. And we could analyze every organ in your body. It's wonderful!

Therefore, a study primarily targets iridology determine the level of activity of tissues and diagnose diseases or call. Remember, healthy tissues are not hyperactive or hypoactive, perform a normal activity. A good iridologist need not diagnose disease (that is work of doctors), where you can define if tissues are hyper or hypoactive, acute or chronic.

One last thought. If our body has this simple analysis method to meet our health: iridology, could it be that the nature of the disease is only a matter of hyperactivity or hypoactivity? It may sound simplistic, but apart from genetic diseases, what is everything else?
