Evidence-Based Clinical Chelation:

A Textbook with Protocols for the Treatment of Chronic Metal Exposure

by Eleonore Blaurock-Busch (Author) Swaran J. S. Flora (Author) Ebrahim Sulaiman (Author)

Description

“This is an easy-to-read manual about chelation therapy. It contains specific protocols for the treatment of chronic metal overexposure, all of which are evidence-based, aiding the inexperienced and the experienced therapist in selecting the optimal chelating agent for the metal(s) in question. Expert chemists and chelation therapists have contributed invaluable knowledge and experience to this book. Most importantly, this is not a book promoting personal views or preferences. In fact, the information presents and explains different approaches, and allows the reader to draw his own conclusion. All the protocols listed have been modified for the treatment of chronic metal intoxication, included are oral and intravenous treatment plans. The authors explain in simple terms how a chelating agent´s bioavailability affects metal binding and how various protocols such as the Cutler Protocol affect the detoxification process, why DMPS binds mercury and which chelators are useful for the detoxification of certain organ system. Also discussed is the importance and effect of treatment pauses. Diagnostic tests are discussed, and which are useful under certain conditions. Shown are tables comparing the average metal binding ability of the various EDTAs, DMPS, DMSA and other chelating agents. Detailed information explains which chelator binds which metal and why, all of which aids the therapist in finding optimal treatment schedules. Novel chelating agents are presented such as MIADMSA, a new oral chelator specifically designed for arsenic intoxication, or how natural Pectin may be used an alternative for gadolinium intoxication, which metals are bound by lipoic acid and why a slightly alkaline environment supports metal binding, even preventing the often-feared metal redistribution. All in all, this evidence-based chelation “cookbook” should be in medical libraries and on the bookshelf of every physician treating environmental disease.”

BRMI Recommended Book: Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science

BRMI Recommended Book: Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science

BRMI Recommended Book: Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science

Book authors Judy Mikovits & Kent Heckenlively

The Bioregulatory Medicine Institute (BRMI) examines science as a cornerstone of our institute, often to find that it has been manipulated, leading people to hold misconceptions in regards to health and healing. As we endeavor to bring a Renaissance of health through bioregulatory medicine, and the science of self-healing, we recommend this book to shed light on both the corruption and promise that is found in the truth.

 

“One of the main problems of our time is the public loss of confidence in the scientific community because of a too often corrupt coalition of governmental and corporate entities.Judy Mikovits’s and Kent Heckenlively’s book delves into the midst of this rampant corruption, which hides  from the public scientific truths which might go against these corporate economic interests.”

 

Dr. Luc Montagnier, 2008 Nobel Laureate for the isolation of the HIV retrovirus

 

From Amazon: “Dr. Judy Mikovits is a modern-day Rosalind Franklin, a brilliant researcher shaking up the old boys’ club of science with her groundbreaking discoveries. And like many women who have trespassed into the world of men, she uncovered decades-old secrets that many would prefer to stay buried.

 

From her doctoral thesis, which changed the treatment of HIV-AIDS, saving the lives of millions, including basketball great Magic Johnson, to her spectacular discovery of a new family of human retroviruses, and her latest research which points to a new golden age of health, Dr. Mikovits has always been on the leading edge of science.

 

With the brilliant wit one might expect if Erin Brockovich had a doctorate in molecular biology, Dr. Mikovits has seen the best and worst of science. When she was part of the research community that turned HIV-AIDS from a fatal disease into a manageable one, she saw science at its best. But when her investigations questioned whether the use of animal tissue in medical research were unleashing devastating plagues of chronic diseases, such as autism and chronic fatigue syndrome, she saw science at its worst. If her suspicions are correct, we are looking at a complete realignment of scientific practices, including how we study and treat human disease.

 

Recounting her nearly four decades in science, including her collaboration of more than thirty-five years with Dr. Frank Ruscetti, one of the founders of the field of human retrovirology, this is a behind the scenes look at the issues and egos which will determine the future health of humanity.”

 

The foreward of the book is written by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. with these words: “This account by Judy Mikovits and Kent Heckenlively is vitally important both to the health of our children and the vitality of our democracy. My father believed moral courage to be the rarest species of bravery. Rarer even than the physical courage of soldiers in battle or great intelligence. He thought it the one vital quality required to salvage the world. If we are to continue to enjoy democracy and protect our children from the forces that seek to commoditize humanity, then we need courageous scientists like Judy Mikovits who are willing to speak truth to power, even at terrible personal cost.”

 

About the Authors

 

Judy Mikovits, PhD, spent twenty years at the National Cancer Institute, working with Dr. Frank Ruscetti, one of the founding fathers of human retrovirology, and has coauthored more than forty scientific papers. She co-founded and directed the first neuroimmune disease institute using a systems biology approach in 2006. Dr. Mikovits lives in Southern California with her husband, David”

 

Kent Heckenlively, JD, is a former attorney, a founding editor of Age of Autism, and a science teacher. During college Heckenlively worked for US Senator Pete Wilson, and in law school he was a writer and an editor of the school’s law review and spent his summers working for the US Attorney’s Office in San Francisco. Kent and his wife Linda live in Northern California with their two children, Jacqueline and Ben.”

Book Review by Melissa Wuske

Bioregulatory Medicine: An Innovative Holistic Approach to Self-Healing by Dickson Thom; James Paul Maffitt Odell; Jeoffrey Drobot; Frank Pleus; Jess Higgins Kelley

Chelsea Green Publishing

(Nov 2, 2018)

Softcover $20.00 (240pp) 978-1-60358-821-8 Bioregulatory Medicine turns the American healthcare system on its head for the benefit of individuals’ health.

For all that Americans spend on health care, the nation is decidedly unhealthy, especially when compared to other developed nations, plagued by chronic and degenerative illnesses and clinging to ineffective allopathic remedies like medications and surgeries. This book provides another way that’s been proven to work in other nations. Bioregulatory medicine is a patient-focused approach that acknowledges the individuality of each person and the body’s ability to heal itself when systems are in balance.

Topical chapters highlight the powers of the body, the detrimental factors that harm health, and the wide array of philosophies, treatment modalities, and therapies available. While far from antagonistic to the American medical establishment, the book takes aim at what’s not working and broadens the understanding of the many ways health can work. The result is solutions that are positive, proactive, and backed by sound science and reason.

The book addresses popular topics in the health and wellness realm—such as detoxification, diet, and mindfulness—but with deeper authority. The approach is well researched, not haphazard or based on the latest trend, and it also includes less in vogue topics like the surprising impacts of oral and digestive health. By eschewing hype and verbosity in favor of calm reason, the book builds credibility and increases its appeal for healthcare practitioners and motivated patients.

The authors bring a multifaceted wealth of experience and expertise that equips people with the background knowledge and practical understanding to change the way they think and reap the rewards. The array of authors makes the book a complete tapestry rather than a single thread. The wisdom of the book is applicable to many medical issues.

Bioregulatory Medicine puts the patient’s needs and benefit back at the heart of health care.

Principles and Applications of Ozone Therapy – A Practical Guideline for Physicians

Principles and Applications of Ozone Therapy – A Practical Guideline for PhysiciansPrinciples and Applications of Ozone Therapy – A Practical Guideline for Physicians by Frank Shallenberger, M.D., HMD, ABAAM Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform ISBN 10: 145641335X / ISBN 13: 9781456413354

This book was written in 2011, but is still one of the most comprehensive texts of ozone therapy on the market. Dr. Frank Shallenberger has been using ozone therapy to treat patients for over 25 years. The book details how and why Dr. Shallenberger, an emergency room specialist, first became interested in ozone therapy. It then describes how his years of successful experience with it, in a wide variety of medical conditions, compelled him to discover how and why the therapy works so well.

Dr. Shallenberger believes that the primary cause of disease is decreased oxygen utilization. He presents biochemical and physiological evidence for this assertion. He then presents evidence for how and why ozone therapy improves oxygen utilization, and, in so doing, is instrumental in the treatment of many otherwise incurable medical conditions. The list includes cardiovascular diseases, chronic infections (such as herpes and hepatitis C), macular degeneration, dental infections, chronic pain syndromes, degenerative joint conditions, and autoimmune diseases.

Dr. Shallenberger shares his experiences with treating these diseases, and offers specific ozone therapy protocols which he has found to be effective. Dr. Shallenberger does not look at ozone therapy as a “magic bullet”. Instead, he describes how it can be integrated with conventional approaches to yield better results.

What Happened to Prevention: from Peach to Pink

What Happened to Prevention: from Peach to Pink

Febuary 7, 2020

What Happened to Prevention: from Peach to Pink

It began as a true grassroots movement, with emphasis on prevention. The woman behind the movement was Charlotte Haley.

In 1991, Haley began hand-making peach-colored breast cancer ribbons in her dining room. To each packet of five ribbons she attached a postcard that read: “The National Cancer Institute’s annual budget is $1.8 billion, only 5% goes for cancer prevention. Help us wake up legislators and America by wearing this ribbon.” Her ribbons were a call-to-action: a demand for prevention and greater accountability. Haley was approached by Self magazine and Estée Lauder for permission to use her ribbon; Haley, with her emphasis on prevention, found them too commercial and turned them down. Undeterred, legal counsel crafted a workaround: use a ribbon of a different color. And so the pink ribbon was born, quickly eclipsing the original, grassroots peach.

Charlotte Haley’s reservations were prescient. In 2002, in response to the growing concern about the number of pink ribbon products on the market, the Breast Cancer Action group (an organization focused on the root causes of the breast cancer epidemic) launched Think Before You Pink, a campaign calling for more transparency and accountability by companies that take part in breast cancer fundraising. They encourage consumers to ask critical questions about pink ribbon promotions.

According to Think Before You Pink, “Any company can put a pink ribbon on its products. The widely recognized pink ribbon symbol is not regulated by any agency and does not necessarily mean it effectively combats the breast cancer epidemic.”

Just as more and more products sport pink ribbons every year, there has been a similarly exponential financial increase in the cancer industry. When President Nixon declared the war against cancer in 1971, the annual budget of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) was about $180 million. Today that annual budget is $4.6 billion dollars. In 2011, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute estimated that the total cost of cancer care in the U.S. will rise to $158 billion by 2020.

In 2004, Medicare payments for all Part B drugs for medical oncology reached a total of $5.3 billion (including $2.3 billion for chemotherapy and $1.5 billion for erythroid growth factors). A 2007 study revealed that drugs prescribed by oncologists account for more than 40% of Medicare spending. Today, more than 60% of cancer occurs in Medicare beneficiaries. By 2030 (due in large part to our aging population), that number is projected to grow to 70%. In the U.S., breast cancer receives the most gross funding, even exceeding that of lung cancer. In 2010, the NIH allocated $763 million to breast cancer research, more than double what it committed to any other cancer. Even the Department of Defense allocates more than $100 million each year to breast cancer research. The DOD Breast Cancer Research Program was created in 1992 as a result of the National Breast Cancer Coalition’s “$300 Million More” campaign to increase federal funding for breast cancer research. Since the program’s inception in 1992, the DOD has funded more than $3.1 billion total. This is in addition to the money raised by the roughly 1,400 IRS-recognized, tax-exempt charities in the U.S. devoted to breast cancer. They operate in every state and in just about every major city. The largest breast cancer charity is the Dallas-based Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which grossed $420 million in 2010 alone. All told, an estimated $6 billion is raised every year in the name of breast cancer. This money is allocated towards many sectors of the industry, but largely towards pharmaceutical research. Bear in mind that any research funded by foundations that are primarily created by Big Pharma stockholders must focus on orthodox research, or they will lose their funding. This includes medical schools. According to health studies researcher Samantha King: “Breast cancer has been transformed into a market-driven industry. It has become more about making money for corporate sponsors than funding innovative ways to treat breast cancer.” In her book Pink Ribbons, Inc.: Breast Cancer and the Politics of Philanthropy, King traces how breast cancer has been transformed from a stigmatized disease and individual tragedy to a market-driven industry of survivorship. King questions the effectiveness and legitimacy of privately-funded efforts to stop the epidemic among American women. Pink Ribbons, Inc. challenges the commercialization of the breast cancer movement. Raising money, of course, all sounds good. Yet what many in the breast cancer industry loathe admitting is that despite all the money raised, we are really no closer to a cure than we were two decades ago. Breast cancer remains the leading cancer killer among women ages 20 to 59, and more than 1.4 million new cases are diagnosed annually worldwide. Roughly 5% of breast cancer patients, or 70,000, are diagnosed at late stage after the cancer has metastasized. This late stage rate has not changed since 1975, despite all the medical advances and awareness campaigns. For women diagnosed at late stage, the prognosis remains grim: only 1 in 5 will survive five years out.

Researchers ignore fundamental questions, such as why do a third of all women considered cured suffer recurrences? And, why are breast cancer rates rising in Asia, where they have been historically low? Clearly, the cancer industry has turned a blind eye toward environmental causes and resolving the exposure to chemical carcinogens. Both the NCI and the American Cancer Society (ACS) have focused their abundant resources and institutional mindsets not on preventing cancer, but on attempting to manage the disease once it occurs. The NCI, for instance, allocates less than an estimated 3% of its budget addressing environmental causes of cancer, while the ACS allocates less than 0.1% toward this goal. Samuel Broder, NCI Director from 1989 to 1995, stated the obvious: “The NCI has become what amounts to a government pharmaceutical company.” Nobel Laureate Leland Hartwell, President of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, endorsed Broder’s criticism. He further stressed that most resources for cancer research are spent on “promoting ineffective drugs” for terminal disease. Until attention and money is focused on prevention and environmental causes, it is unlikely that cancer rates will decrease. As we come to view the hydra-headed monster that the cancer industry has become, we can only remain hopeful that this system will eventually change its objective from managing cancer for profit to finding cures. As consumers, we need more options. By understanding the limitations of the cancer industry, we can empower ourselves to seek knowledge and therapy from a cross-cultural, bioregulatory medicine perspective. Though her peach ribbon has long since been eclipsed by pink, inc., Charlotte Haley’s grassroots activism and commitment to breast cancer prevention continue to inspire members of our community. It’s to Charlotte Haley’s memory and motivating principles we dedicate this month of October.

Book Review: Say Yes to Life – Integrative Biological Medicine and Dentistry for the Treatment of Chronic Diseases and Cancer

This comprehensive and well-written book presents the principles and practices of European Biological Medicine and Dentistry as practiced at the Alpstein Clinic in Gais, Switzerland. This is an invaluable resource for patients and health professionals who desire to more deeply understand European Biological Regulatory Medicine.

This book is beautifully organized into 9 chapters with 121 color images and 30 tables of illustrations. It includes case studies, practice tips and example treatment methods with extensive background information.

Chapter 1 (“Get to Know Yourself, Understand the Illness, Help Shape the Treatment”) introduces indispensable holistic health models of the structure and function of the body. The authors illustrate many different approaches for treating chronic diseases and cancer and make clear delineations between the philosophy and practices of orthodox medicine and biological medicine (bioregulatory medicine).

Chapter 2 (“In the Beginning, Information is Gained”) discusses the foundational principles of biological regulatory medicine such as the Iceberg Phenomenon of Causation and explains several unique diagnostic tests beyond orthodox structural tests. Both functional and bioenergetic testing are introduced as complements to basic orthodox structural diagnostics.

Chapter 3 (“Eliminating Causes”) discusses disease etiology and introduces concepts such as toxicology, geopathy, electrosmog, microbial imbalances, foci and interference fields, etc. It extensively outlines concepts important to biological dentistry, such as material compatibility, dental foci, galvanicity and the oral microbiome. The authors describe many therapeutic approaches for resolving dental issues that can help heal a diseased toxic body.

Chapter 4 (“Replace Deficiencies and Recharge Your Batteries”) gives an overview on nutrition, nutritional supplementation, and vital substances that eliminate biochemical deficiencies and restore bioenergetic balance and health. In addition to nutritional therapies, several types of oxygen therapy are described.

Chapter 5 (“Strengthening the Immune System”) is a fascinating in-depth look into powerful immunological treatments such as homotoxic therapy with urine and blood, mistletoe therapy, thymus peptides, tumor vaccines, enzyme therapy, neural therapy, hyperthermia and fever therapy, pulsating magnetic field therapy and various types of recharging exercises.

Chapter 6 (“Naturopathic Medicines”) focuses on evidence-based approaches – such as homeopathy and homeopathic biocatalysts, isopathy, Schüssler mineral salts, phytotherapy, Anthroposophic medicine, spagyric medicine and bioidentical hormone therapy.

Chapter 7 (“Finding Inner Harmony”) discusses the mind and soul and how they interplay with body physiology. The authors poignantly describe the all-important topic of mind-body medicine, psychoimmunology and how emotions can affect specific organs. It is about “restoring harmony to the soul, replacing fear with trust and letting go.” Numerous body-mind therapies are outlined, such as autosuggestion, affirmation, neurolinguistic programing, visualization, hypnosis, etc.

Chapter 8 (“Level and Stage-based Treatment”) explains the importance and method of understanding the multi-causes of illness and how to prioritize therapy in stages.

Chapter 9 (“Back to Life”) offers a summary of ways of becoming healthy by becoming your own inner healer.

Say Yes to Life is a text that belongs in every household and every medical office waiting room. It is a treasure house of information for both the practitioner and patient that empowers the ability to self-heal and get results through noninvasive, nontoxic evidence-based bioregulatory medicine and dentistry.

The Warrior Teenager

Book Review by Kelly Kennedy

Mary Lynne Fernandez in her book The Warrior Teenager courageously addresses at least two major points in our children’s young lives that need to be changed now: (1) that of dealing more effectively with the knowledge that parents, family members, and teachers are molding our children’s thinking and beliefs from a very early age with their own learned stories (these figureheads may have learned distortions from their own teachers and may be passing them down with negative effects); and (2) the critical need for our children to be taught their internal True Power, Worth, and Strengths. Purposefully fortifying these values in personal statements is so creatively described as The Warrior Teenage process. The main focus is on ways to stop negative thinking and action, as well as self-sabatoge. Teenagers are especially vulnerable to these feelings. Fernandez details processes to do this by focusing on the good, and by understanding the infinite use and need of forgiveness and gratitude. Parents, family members, and teachers must understand that our children need to learn how to face adversity, even sadness, and progress through life with more happiness and trust in their own True Power – that children need not grow into wounded adults.

Kelly Kennedy is the Executive Director of True Wellness of Pennsylvania.

Book Review: Health Through Inner Body Cleansing

Dr med. Franz Xaver Mayr (1875-1965) was the founder of the FX Mayr cure.

The diagnosis and treatment which are named after him, as well as his medical concepts, were revolutionary at the turn of the century – and are still integral to the many clinics that incorporate his health regimes – particularly the Original Mayr Clinic in Austria.

The gut microbiome and the gut-brain axis are common topics of today’s health discussions. As far back as 1901, Dr. Mayr concluded that a healthy intestine represents the key to health and longevity. He concentrated on the digestive system and intestines in the treatment of his patients and developed the FX Mayr cure. Today the FX Mayr cure has evolved into a recognized effective bioregulatory healing method, seen as an ideal extension of conventional medicine.

The Mayr program is an intensive regime lasting several weeks. It includes therapeutic fasts to rest the digestive tract and features a special diet to train proper mastication. This diet program is complemented with abdominal massage, hydrotherapy, and various exercises.

By following the FX Mayr method, patients can revitalize their digestive organs and intestinal system (microbiome) and eliminate a whole host of ailments – from aches and pains, to depression, fatigue, and cardiac disorders. At the same time, they can reduce weight, improve their skin, and boost their sense of well-being.

The book’s author, Dr med. Erich Rauch (1922-2003), was one of the most notable students of Franz Xaver Mayr. Born in Graz, he came to know and treasure Dr. Mayr during his training as a general practitioner. As a result, Rauch continued to develop the Mayr form of diagnosis and his regeneration therapies. Over the course of decades, he supervised more than 40,000 Mayr therapies. For the practitioner as well as the patient, his in-depth guide is the leading authority on the FX Mayr method. Dr. Rauch’s book Health Through Inner Body Cleansing provides specific information and instructive support for each stage of this successful therapy.

The Mayr Therapy has the following goals:

1) Detoxification of the whole body;

2) Cleansing, rejuvenating and ensuring the good health of the intestines;

3) Changing of eating behavior, thereby protecting against any further damage to the intestines.

On the 1st of August 1976, together with the German entrepreneur Rolf Deyhle, Erich Rauch founded the first center for the FX Mayr cure – today, the Original FX Mayr in Dellach. As Head Physician, Dr. Rauch helped countless guests to improved quality of life and better health. He also authored many standard reference works on Mayr medicine acknowledged around the world – including The Mild Derivative Diet.

Clinical Pearl

Important to know: The stomach is very sensitive to any kind of stress, whether emotional or physical in origin. Stress slows digestion and can cause the stomach to become dysfunctional and to no longer work efficiently. Even if eating healthy food, the digestive system has difficulty processing food if one eats too quickly, thoughtlessly, or when stressed. Thus, it is important to consciously take time for meals and time to rest and focus on the nurturing nature of food.
