Definition. A set point problem occurs when a person does not want to have a balanced oxidation rate. Usually, the person would prefer to be a fast oxidizer. In some cases, a person prefers to have a slow oxidation rate.
An analogy. This is somewhat similar to wanting one’s house to be warmer than normal, or wanting it to be cooler than normal.
IS THIS IMPORTANT?
It can be, because when the oxidation rate is either too slow or too fast, it can lead to illness.
WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT A FAST OXIDATION RATE?
A fast oxidation rate is like flying from one place to another, instead of walking. One cannot view every detail of the landscape when one flies. This is helpful for some people who have a trauma, for example, that they do not want to view or examine.
Fast oxidation is often more fun and seems more exciting than slow oxidation, which can be depressing.
WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO HAVE A SLOW OXIDATION RATE?
A story. A woman asked me to set up a nutritional balancing program for her. She was a lesbian and her friends all called her “the depression case”.
Her hair test result indicated a very slow oxidation rate with a calcium shell. She began a program to balance her oxidation rate.
About three months later, she came in very happy. She had had bone loss in her mouth. However, she had just been to the dentist, who reported that she regrew bone in her mouth.
Six months later, she contacted me and said she was quitting the program. I asked why. She said she was feeling very uncomfortable. She was no longer interested in her lesbian partner and more sexually interested in men, and the whole thing was extremely upsetting to her.
She said she thought she preferred very slow oxidation and was okay with her reputation as a “depression case”.
A few years later, she came back and said she was ready to resume the program. She had processed the changes that had taken place within her as her oxidation rate improved.
So it is possible to enjoy slow oxidation, or at least get used to it, and therefore that becomes one’s set point or standard.
