The Oxygen Model of Parasitic Infestation – Majid Ali, M.D.

  Majid Ali, M.D. A healthy bowel is inhospitable to parasites, an unhealthy bowel cannot keep them out. As a boy in Pakistan in 1950s, I learned from my elders that healthy children were expected to have parasites every now and then, and were also expected to clear them out without drugs. As a medical student in that country, I

Oxygen Model of Coronary Heart Disease

A Clinical Outcome Study of Reversing Coronary Artery Disease Majid Ali, M.D. (originally published in Townsend Letter in 2006*)  Coronary heart disease (CHD) is, first and foremost, an energetic lesion. Specifically, it begins with rupture of the initial step involving complex I in the chain of oxygen-driven events in mitochondrial ATP generation — and is perpetuated by disruptions of the

The Oxygen Model of Health and Aging Majid Ali, M.D.

The Oxygen Model OF Health and Aging Majid Ali, M.D.   My grandfather forgot to die on time. We do not know how long he lived — 101 years, 102 years, or more. My grandmother was also a centenarian. With that genetic pool, I sometimes wonder about my own life span. Then I realize that my grandparents lived free of pesticides, refrigerators,

THE Oxygen MODEL OF Kidney Failure

THE DYSOX MODEL OF RENAL INSUFFICIENCY AND IMPROVED RENAL FUNCTION WITH OXYSTATIC THERAPIES Majid Ali, M.D. (First published in Townsend Letter in 2005) In this column, we cite a large body of our previously published histopathologic and biochemical findings1-14 concerning renal insufficieny to provide a framework of reference for presenting the dysox model of renal insufficieny, including: (1) histopathologic and

Oxygen Model of Inflammation

OXYGEN GOVERNS THE INFLAMMATORY RESPONSE AND ADJUDICATES MAN-MICROBE CONFLICTS Majid Ali, M.D. Life is an unending injury-healing-injury cycle. Injury is inevitable in an organism’s struggle for survival. Healing is the intrinsic capacity of the organism to repair damage inflicted by that injury. Inflammation — in my view — is one aspect of the energetic-molecular mosaic of that intrinsic capacity. This

THE OXYGEN MODEL OF OSTEOPOROSIS: Bone Homeostasis Is But One Face of Oxygen Homeostasis Majid Ali, M.D. The human anatomy and physiology evolved under the organizing influence of oxygen.1-4 Accordingly, oxygen not only provides signaling for all developmental, differentiative, and dying processes, it also serves as the principal nutrient for the body. Viewed in that light, bone homeostasis is but one
