Our current situation
- Between 1980 and 2008 the number of obese people in Europe has doubled. In 2008 around 50% of men and women were overweight and around 20% were obese.
- According to current estimates, overweight affects up to 70% and adiposis (affects) up to 30% of the adult population in the EU.
- One out of three children in Europe is either overweight or obese.
- Obesity in childhood is strongly connected with risk faktors of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus type 2, orthopaedic problems, mental-health disorders, poor achievements in school and a low self-esteem.

Where does this development come from?
The abrupt rise in diet-related diseases and their subsequent symptoms contributes to this tendency. Not only a oversupply in vital substances (vitamins, minerals, micronutrients, …), but also unbalanced or bad diet could lead to profound physical and mental consequences. Furthermore we are burdened with an increased level of environmental factors, stress and poisonous substances.
Diet-related diseases amidst global, regional and national trends for 240 causes of death in Global Burden of Disease (GBD) 2014
Worlwide the life expectancy increased. Yet it is obvious, that diseases related to changes in dietary patterns increasingly lead to death. These include coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, tumors of liver, colon and lung, as well as chronic kidney diseases. Malnutrition following a protein deficit has ranked eighteenth out of the fifty most important causes of death.
Shifts in mortality statistics point to an increasing burden of diet-related diseases. Eating habits and environmental factors are included into factors that can be changed in favour of a long healthy life.
Smooth functioning of all processes in our body can only be guaranteed with a optimal supply of energy sources and vital substances. Insufficient supply or disorders in vital circuits could lead directly to symptoms and consequential diseases.
Causes for disorders in our body
Overweight is only one of the more obvious signs of malnutrition. Even lean people can have a massively impaired metabolism. Environmental factors can play a major role also.
Our body consists out of around 70 billions of cells. In each cell there are small “power stations”, the so-called Mitochondria, which we use to produce our energy.
Monocultures, environmental toxins, overbred breeds, chemically-processed basic materials, genetically optimized species, questionable animal feed and much more can indirectly affect the supply for our cells.
Unbalanced supply can interfere with vital circuits in our body. Carbohydrate-rich diet, as usual for us, can for instance among other factors have unfavourable effects on our insulin metabolism.
Impaired insulin metabolism: The Insulin cannot open the access to the cell anymore, resulting in less “fuel” for the cell.
Physiological insulin metabolism: The insulin binds to receptors at the cell surface and opens access to the cell. Glucose/sugar and therefore energy can move into the cell.
Processes in our body are connected to or depend on each other. Single disorders can directly affect whole systems/circuits. Cholesterol levels for instance influence the total hormonal system due to the impact onto the steroid-hormone cascade:
Natural, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle can positively influence the total hormonal balance due to this connection.
These are only some examples among many complex biochemical processes in our body, which can be affected by our diet.
How can diet-related disorders be prevented?
Due to the complexity of these interlaced processes, an isolated contemplation of the symptoms is of no further meaning. Because of that, the nutrition programme cellRESET is based on, which was developed for space travel, followed the aim, to optimize the self-regulation of the body. In this way astronauts should be kept healthy long-term and without direct medical care. cellRESET continues to follow this holistic approach to a balanced body.
Key elements include:
- The energy metabolism (especially the insulin-dependant metabolism)
- Cholesterol levels
- The immune system
- The water balance
- The excretion of waste products
Therefore the focus of cellRESET is on:
- The elimination of “sugar addiction” (Carbohydrate dependence) and insulin resistance,
- salt reduction,
- balanced uptake of fatty acids and
- the optimal supply with proteins, vital substances and water
Imagine the body as a filter: “fuel” substances are led into the system, waste substances are excreted. For this to function properly, waste needs to be excreted effectively and the filter needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. Now the following question comes up:
We clean our body from the outside daily, but how do we clean our body from the inside?
How to individually reach these goals and a detailed and practice-oriented instruction is available for download in the internal area of the cellRESET Community-platform. Further our experts and many successful users will answer your personal questions.
Are we constantly aware of such disorders in our body?
Insufficient supply does not always express itself as pathological symptoms.
How fast, high and healthy a plant can grow, depends strongly on its supply.
Looking at a plant for instances we can notice:
small plants can grow in the most absurd and inhospitable places. The same plant growing in a particularly appropriate place, can develop its full potential due to optimal supply with sun, water and nutrients. She will become big, strong, resistant, carry beautiful flowers and fruits.
Transfer this thought onto a human: You do not necessarily have to waste away and “shrink”, but with a better nutrient supply your body can “flourish” even more. cellRESET wants to lay such foundations and as a result promote health, physical and mental performance.
