Abstract: In recent decades, the use of a systems-based view of life has provided key insight into fundamental processes with respect to biology. In life sciences, important paradigm shifts are the way in which we approach health and disease. Although modern medicine has traditionally emphasized pathology and acute conditions, our current understanding is that different interventions are needed for treating and preventing chronic disease. To design better interventions, new diagnostic tools are urgently needed in order to create new opportunities for achieving personalized health and medicine. The focus in diagnosis is, therefore, shifting from measuring single biomarkers such as glucose and cholesterol to creating complex maps of the dynamic patterns underlying regulatory processes. Moreover, the notion of "health" is viewed in a holistic context using biochemistry as a basis and then expanding this basis to include the psycho-social environment, including the individual's worldview. In the field of diagnostics, a highly promising new tool has recently emerged based on ultra-weak photon emission from biological systems, including all living cells. The aim of this thesis was to explore the applications of UPE and correlate it with biochemistry in order to obtain a deeper understanding of the processes that occur in living systems.
