Protomorphogens or PMG’s as we call them at Duve Wellness Center are extracts that provide an important adjunct for nutritional support of cellular function. Dr. Royal Lee pioneered this unique method of using PMG’s in clinical nutrition and believed that these factors were important in cell regulation, maintenance, and the interaction with tissue antibodies. This is critical information for someone with an autoimmune disorder. (See Autoimmune Disease Part I and Autoimmune Disease Part II at www.duvewellnessblog.com)
Why are the PMG’s Important
These PMG extracts contain “cell determinants” from specific organs and glands and are used for clinical purposes in wellness care. These cell determinants help re-establish normal cell function and basically rehabilitate the tissues. PMG’s have specific applications and effects. Protomorphogens are not to be confused with commonly manufactured “glandulars” because these extracts have distinct qualities that help the body heal.
“Blueprint” and “Decoy” Effects
In lay terms, Protomorphogens* have many functions, but they two most significant functions are their tissue blueprint and antibody decoy effects.
So let’s explain the “blueprint effect” first. Most tissue in the body has the capacity to rejuvenate itself. This is common knowledge. What you may not realize is that nerve tissue can also regenerate give the right circumstances. There have been studies that have proven that our bodies are self-rejuvenating by nature. Some tissues take longer than others, but they all do it! So PMG’s provide the “blueprint” to new cell growth.
As for the “decoy effect,” this is absolutely critical for the patient suffering with an Autoimmune Disorder where the body is creating antibodies that attack its own tissues. This is becoming more common, but it is NOT normal. I won’t get into the mechanism of action or the cause in this article but I will tell you this….our food supply and pharmaceutical drugs are the primary smoking guns here. The thin layer of endothelium that lines the gut is being compromised by NON FOODS, medications, chemicals and toxins. When this thin lining breaks down and becomes porous, food can permeate the lining and create this antigen-antibody reaction which results in tissue destruction. This can happen to any tissue in the body. See the list below for the most common tissues affected.
