The History of UNDA Numbers. The formulation of the UNDA numbers is credited to George Discri, Dr. Louis Reuter, and Dr. Anthoine Nebel in Switzerland during the 1920s and 1930s. Originally there were formulas for over a thousand remedies, but Discri gradually reduced the formulations to those that seemed to work best in clinical practice. UNDA means undulating water or water wave.
Therapeutic Actions. The regular use of UNDA numbers in chronic conditions will permit drainage of congested organs and support the optimal function of the liver, kidney and natural organs of elimination (emunctories) such as the intestines, skin, lungs, bladder and mucus membranes of the stomach, pancreas and genitalia. The deep cleansing action of the UNDA remedies enhance enzyme systems and enable tissues to return to proper function. Each remedy has a specific target—either an organ, a miasm, or physiological function and are prescribed based on an assessment of organ systems.
Functional medicine is anchored by an examination of the core clinical imbalances that underlie various disease conditions. Those imbalances arise as environmental inputs such as diet, nutrients (including air and water), exercise, and trauma are processed by one’s body, mind, and spirit through a unique set of genetic predispositions, attitudes, and beliefs. The fundamental physiological processes include communication, both outside and inside the cell; bioenergetics, or the transformation of food into energy; replication, repair, and maintenance of structural integrity, from the cellular to the whole body level; elimination of waste; protection and defense; and transport and circulation. The core clinical imbalances that arise from malfunctions within this complex system include:
Hormonal and neurotransmitter imbalances
Oxidation-reduction imbalances and mitochondropathy
Detoxification and biotransformational imbalances
Digestive, absorptive, and microbiological imbalances
Structural imbalances from cellular membrane function to the musculoskeletal system
Imbalances such as these are the precursors to the signs and symptoms by which we detect and label (diagnose) organ system disease. Improving balance – in the patient’s environmental inputs and in the body’s fundamental physiological processes – is the precursor to restoring health and it involves much more than treating the symptoms. Functional medicine is dedicated to improving the management of complex, chronic disease by intervening at multiple levels to address these core clinical imbalances and to restore each patient’s functionality and health. Functional medicine is not a unique and separate body of knowledge. It is grounded in scientific principles and information widely available in medicine today, combining research from various disciplines into highly detailed yet clinically relevant models of disease pathogenesis and effective clinical management.
Functional medicine emphasizes a definable and teachable process of integrating multiple knowledge bases within a pragmatic intellectual matrix that focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s environmental inputs and his or her physiological function. It is a clinician’s discipline, and it directly addresses the need to transform the practice of primary care.
