Lesson Overview

In this lesson, we review foundational terminology and practical facts related to cells, which form the body and maintain its health.


Be familiar with the composition, power and intelligent functioning of cells, “small packets of life” which form the body and maintain its health.


Define and describe cells and what they do. Define the scientific characteristics of life, and the differentiation of atoms, molecules and cells. Describe what cells do and how they do it. Be familiar with terms that may be used in research findings (such as organelles, mitochronida, ATP and stem cells). Describe the power and elegance of cell behavior, and how the intelligence displayed at the cellular level gives us a view into the wisdom inherent in the body. Discuss and describe the essential functions of cell death, recycling, and regeneration in health and wellness.
