The acceleration in the rate of chronic disease that involves insulin resistance
has become of concern in various countries. The rate of the most prevalent
chronic diseases involves the metabolic syndrome and non alcoholic fatty liver
disease (NAFLD) that is closely associated to diabetes and neurodegenerative
diseases. Biotherapeutics and nutritional biotherapy have become important
to reverse these global diseases. Biotherapeutics that involves Indian spice
therapy requires assessment with relevance to insulin therapy, immunotherapy,
antimicrobial therapy and drug therapeutics. Combined insulin therapy
and Indian spice therapy regulates human insulin biological activity with
relevance to the prevention of uncontrolled intracellular glucose levels and
mitochondrial apoptosis. Biotherapeutics with nutritional biotherapy that involves the use of various nutrients such as magnesium and phosphatidylinositol
(gm/day) is essential to insulin therapy. Factors such as stress, core
body temperature and food quality influence biotherapeutics and Indian spice
therapy with delayed spice clearance associated with mitochondrial dysfunction
(cell apoptosis) and altered drug/caffeine therapy with relevance to the
global diabetes pandemic.
