I present a perspective on disease mechanisms developed over my years of clinical experience. In Part I, I look at the history of data synthesis in medicine and medical science, and find it to be rather haphazard.

I suggest a new way of building up the clinical information to a reasonable conclusion based on individual patient data. Part II then applies that approach to understanding disease.

Chronic stress is what the saying “stress kills” is referring to. Not only does chronic stress underlie several ‘diseases of modern civilization’, but in my opinion, it’s totally not Paleo. To answer my own question, “is stress Paleo”, I would say that acute stress is Paleo, but chronic stress is not.

Evolution. the stress response in terms of cortisol arousal is doomed. For that matter, any attempt to define stress or the stress response is liable to be an exercise in frustration, for the evolutionary reason that the system does not have sharp boundaries or a single function.

The closest we can come to a defining characteristic is the kinds of.DISEASE IN HUMAN EVOLUTION: THE RE-EMERGENCE OF INFECTIOUS DISEASE IN THE THIRD EPIDEMIOLOGICAL TRANSITION by George J.

The pathogenesis is multifactorial with immunological, environmental and genetic factors contributing to the disease. There is evidence that oxidative stress (OS) imbalance is involved in IBD onset and evolution, although the exact contribution to the pathogenes is unclear.
