“If we accept the concept that each of us consists of an orderly grouping of cells living within a fluid matrix, and that health represents a situation in which the internal environment is maintained within homeostatic limits by the integrating systems of the body, then it is logical to postulate that disease is an alteration in these mechanisms which permits or forces a departure from these homeostatic limits, resulting in altered function or physiology.”
