DNA codes have an important place in the RTM system. Because the functioning of the body is organized by these codes. If we look at the concept of disease primarily through technical details, our DNA codes contain two code information, one structural and the other functional. While structural coding creates the formal dimension of the body, such as hair and eye color, functional coding reveals the life-related values of the body, such as pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate or hormonal values.
So why are these values important? Because life takes shape with the norm of these values. These values come into play when we laugh, cry, run, get excited or when our body is responding to an infection.
How Do Diseases Occur?
These values change in two categories. The first takes place through the reflex responses registered in the codes, and the body changes its functioning temporarily in order to sustain life in the face of any stress. For example, the acceleration of circulation when we are excited is one of the best indicators of this...
The second change is the new information processes revealed by the new codes. These processes include gene processes with chronic changes. The purpose of change here is, in fact, the maintenance of life. For example, the blood circulation that delivers the needs of the tissues is provided by the blood pressure in the veins. This pressure delivers the blood and its contents to the tissues. At the moment of excitement, the increase in vascular pressure and sending the blood needed to the tissues is activated as a reflex. However, in a situation where blood density increases, temporary pressure increases cannot compensate for this and cannot deliver the blood needed by the tissues to the tissues, which creates a life-threatening situation. Since the system works focused on the continuation of life, these new changes in the codes are revealed and new blood pressure values are created. In a way, new operational values are determined by decrees having the force of law. The goal is the maintenance of life. In other words, the old original gene information is as accurate as it is necessary for life, and the new values are just as accurate.
Values called disease in the RTM system are actually new set points for life.
Disease and Treatment Triads
There are many factors that threaten our lives. In the face of these factors, our body reveals new models for the maintenance of life. In shaping these models, the RTM disease triad, which includes DNA code changes, comes into play.
The RTM Disease triad has three main pillars:
2. Systemic disruptions
3. DNA changes
These changes can occur due to direct factors as well as affecting each other. Following these changes, new functioning processes of cells and tissues are revealed for the maintenance of life. Many enzymes and hormonal changes are involved in the organization of these processes. Again, if we give an example from blood pressure, factors can initiate pollution processes in the body and cause the activities of the circulatory system to be affected by this. In order to ensure the vitality endangered by this interaction, the body places the new blood pressure values it needs into its DNA codes. After that, the body continues to live with new blood pressure values. This process, which we perceive as a disease, is actually the new vital values of the body. In short, we say that there is no disease, there are new vital values.
Patient Groups at RTM
In the RTM study area, patients are handled in 3 groups.
Those with Motion Diseases: The first of the three groups, and the most common slice, is the treatment of conditions that are defined as motion diseases, in which the limitation of movement of the person causes discomfort to such an extent that it affects his/her daily life. It is necessary to say the following for this group; When patients apply to a doctor with a complaint of limitation of movement, the causes of these discomforts are based on very basic reasons.
We can count three reasons that create movement restriction. The first is injuries. In trauma-like events, joint, muscle and ligament damage may occur, resulting in joint and movement restrictions.
Another reason is neurological disorders. Unfortunately, in cases like MS, which we call polyneuropathy, such as ALS, which damage the nervous system and cause neurological deformation, patients may experience discomfort related to their musculoskeletal systems.
Another condition that is not based on polyneuropathic causes but restricts people's movements is degenerative disorders in the joint and bone structure. We can also add movement restriction diseases that occur due to age-related or some hormonal irregularities that develop at an early age.
Those Who Have Diseases Affecting Their Daily Lives: Patients whose daily life is affected due to their illness form the second group. To give an example, the discomfort we call restless feet syndrome, intestinal disorders, stomach disorders such as celiac, crown, sleep apnea and chronic fatigue are included in this class. In other words, diseases and disorders that affect daily life, which can affect even vital functions if not followed, but whose infrastructure and causes cannot be identified directly, unfortunately also create very distressing effects on people's quality of life. This group, which we can include cancer patients, forms a wide scale from very mild to very severe in terms of diagnosis and treatment.
Those Who Are Interested in Preventive Health: The third and last group consists of patients who adopt the preventive health model, that is, the approach that aims to protect their health before they become sick. Here, people aim to be more vigorous, to protect their health or to protect themselves from the discomfort experienced in their family from generation to generation.
As can be understood from all these, treating the patient and the disease as a unique case is the best approach for the comfort and safety of the process.
Therefore, RTM aims to treat the patient, not the disease. Undoubtedly, our methods are what feed our determination to reach this goal.
