I am just posting the protocol below but highly
recommend going to the site to read the article
and to see if any of the embedded links which
do not show up in a off-site post would be ones
you need to further investigate~~
This document outlines a basic core protocol using, in order of priority: sodium bicarbonate, magnesium chloride, selenium, glutathione, clay, concentrated superfoods like spirulina and chlorella, and formulations like Rejuvenate. The entire cadre of essential nutrients is needed for detoxification to work properly (e.g. vitamins, minerals, essential fats, antioxidants such as vitamin C and bioflavonoids). Most of these are in the spirulina and chlorella, but many more are in the Rejuvenate, which tastes a whole lot better.
Sodium bicarbonate is a vitally important part of the detoxification process because of its ability to modulate body pH. But that is only one of the many reasons everyone needs to turn their attention to the single most helpful substance in an environmental disaster. That good old Arm and Hammer baking soda can save the day. It is very important for doctors to know that even a slightly over acidity in the body can impede detoxification.
Activated charcoal and distilled (or other very pure water) are other super essential substances to have on hand to maximize the body’s ability to excrete highly toxic oil gases. Instructions on teaching people how to make homemade gas masks is on the list of poison gas threats so one will really need that charcoal for anyone downwind of the Gulf disaster. A testimony in John Dinsley book Charcoal Remedies tells an important story about severe benzene exposure. “After taking the charcoal capsules, I made an appointment with my family doctor. I told him about the benzene and asked for another blood test. When the test came back a week later, it showed that I had no benzene in my system.” There is also the coffee enema (organic), which detoxifies the liver, our most important toxin filter.
According to Parris Kidd, PhD and nutritional researcher, “Detoxification capacity varies widely from person to person and what one person can effectively detoxify may cause liver damage or cancer in another. The liver relies heavily on antioxidants and antioxidant cofactors for its detoxification work, so supplementation with vitamins B (complex), C, E, and glutathione precursors have top priority.” Dr. Kidd recommends glutathione precursors alpha-lipoic acid (100 mg/day) and N-acetylcysteine (600 mg/day) along with B, E and C vitamins, phosphatidylcholine and taurine.
The Rejuvenate formulas cover all of this nutritional territory in a most superb way. Spirulina and chlorella cover most but they do not contain any C. Full hydration with pure fluids is absolutely essential in any detoxification protocol thus organic juice fasts or eating very lightly as one flushes and nourishes the system with fluids with these superfoods dissolved is central to an effective protocol. Dr. Leonard Mehlmauer, a naturopath says that, “Each case would be different but diet would be a primary medical tool with the use of pure and raw liquids playing a large part in recovery. The more severe cases would very likely go on all pure raw liquids, especially green smoothies laced with superfoods.”
One needs to know how vitally important magnesium and selenium are for increasing glutathione, the cornerstone enzyme that we need to detoxify chemicals and heavy metals from our body’s tissues. Order a supply of glutathione suppositories as well as supplies for IVs if you are a doctor that uses them. Activated charcoal should also be brought into the area in large quantities for it holds the potential to help a lot of people in the Gulf Region.
It is crucially important that in our diagnostic model of Gulf Toxicity Syndrome the local populations of the southern states are already exposed to the highest airborne mercury levels; so these people’s toxic levels are unusually high and their immune and detoxification systems are unusually low. Glutathione levels have been diminished and then crashed down even further due to inhaled VOCs. Thus, replenishing glutathione levels quickly is an essential foundation for appropriate emergency and long-term treatment.
Dr. Garry Gordon agrees, suggesting, “IV Glutathione is at the top of the list for effective detoxification for virtually every toxic exposure. Those who are already showing serious symptoms need IV glutathione and vitamin C and extra magnesium – often called a MYER’s cocktail. The doses of C we like are from 8 to 16 grams a day and there are specialized products that most people can tolerate in those higher levels without upsetting the intestine too much. When we give vitamin C IVs we use from 25 to 100 grams in a slow drip and do this 2-4 times a week for as long as needed; but always use high dosages of oral C too. I am very impressed with NAC (N-acetyl cysteine); take 500-600 mg capsules at least twice a day for a few months.
A great part of the idea is to increase cell adaptability and resistance to chemical stress, open detoxification pathways, increase cell wall permeability to allow more nutrients to enter and toxic wastes to exit, increase available glutathione, and provide a large influx of minerals that will increase enzyme activity and help neutralize heavy metals and noxious chemicals from the system. We concentrate on high oral intake of medicinals with high ORAC values. The idea is to increase Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity (ORAC), an assay that measures the degree of inhibition of peroxy-radical-induced oxidation by the compounds of interest in a chemical milieu. One of the Rejuvenate formulas has an ORAC reading of 14,300 for a 41-gram serving. An equal amount of spirulina measures around 3,600. For reference sake approximately 5 servings of fruits and vegetables would typically have an ORAC value in the range of 3,000-5000 units.
There are many ways that spirulina and chlorella helps us and both have always been known to facilitate detoxification during fasting and thus they are also very useful during chelation. One of their functions, through their high concentration of amino acids and carotenes, is to raise glutathione levels, thus reducing kidney and liver toxicity caused by the heavy metals, pharmaceutical drugs and other toxins. One of the reasons that spirulina and chlorella are so effective in cases of radioactivity is the discovery that they do in fact increase glutathione levels.
A large adult man would probably want to take as many as fifty tablets of 500 mgs of spirulina or chlorella (25 grams) but would have to work up to that and be taking lots of fluids. With a Rejuvenate I would easily double or triple the serving, which would then add up to 90 grams. This gets expensive and British Petroleum should be paying for all of this but they won’t of course.
The influence of spirulina extracts significantly increased GSH (glutathione) levels compared with untreated cells according to Dr. H. Hana et al at the National Research Center in Cairo, Egypt. The GSH level of untreated cells was 6.1µg10G cells while those treated with S. plantensis and S. maxima increased the GSH level to 70.32µg10G and even higher. Mike Adams recommends taking chlorella powder in a jar of strong unsweetened lime or lemon water creating a mix that bypasses the unpleasant taste.
Detoxification through the skin is also a very important pathway for healing oneself from chemical overexposure. Besides the bicarbonate and magnesium salt baths the two most useful methods of transdermal elimination are clay baths or clay packs and saunas. Taking a clay bath is one of the most effective methods in existence to help assist the body in the elimination of toxic substances which have accumulated in the body. Applied over one’s organs, such as the liver, clay poultices and packs aid in detoxification and not quite as messy as a bath. Once you have used the clay, it will be full of toxins, so please dispose of it and wash your skin off with a good natural soap.
Clay is very important to have on hand for medical, environmental and nuclear emergencies. Clay baths are a very strong way of removing heavy metals from the body and would increase our chances of survival if exposed to nuclear fallout. In addition, clay can be ingested and is very effective in removing toxins through the process of elimination. For ingestion, I recommend the daily use of a product called Edible Clay from LL’s Magnetic Clay. The use of clay for both internal and external use puts in our hands the healing power of mother earth and there is little that can compare or compete in the world of medicine.I explain this fully in my recent essay Edible Clay; Healing with Mother Earth. For general health, one heaping teaspoon of Edible Earth in an 8 oz glass of water daily is sufficient. And study your iodine, you will need that on hand as well.
Far Infrared Sauna s (FIR) in particular stimulate multiple pathways in the body including the liver detoxification metabolic pathways. They also supports kidney filtration and elimination. Most importantly Far Infrared Sauna triggers subcutaneous toxin release via perspiration – thereby bringing “online” this additional detoxification pathway. Families and organizations can share the cost of a FIR (Far-Infrared-Sauna) sauna, which can be used round the clock by many when situations call for such use.
One can be overwhelmed when first introduced to nutritional medicine, detoxification principles and chelation of heavy metals. There is a lot to learn and a lot of people say different things about it. Orthodox medicine has taken a strong stand against any of these processes so it will be impotent in its response to this expanding health nightmare. Almost forty thousand people are working in or around the Gulf and a few million on shore are in harm’s way.
The average life span of a person who did cleanup on the Exxon Valdez is 51 years meaning almost all of them are already dead yet British Petroleum is not informing doctors nor making communications that help the public.
It’s important to always remember that the first rule is to avoid exposure for even the very best protocol cannot save you if you have been hit by a toxic truck. When told by the CDC not to touch the oil it is good to remember one of the greatest lessons in the field of toxicology. There once was a scientist, Karen Wetterhahn who was an internationally respected Professor of Chemistry, an expert researcher in the field of the effects of heavy metals upon living systems, especially in their role in causing cancer. Wetterhahn spilling a drop or two of Dimethylmercury ((CH3)2Hg) on her gloved hand. Less than a year later, she was dead from the effects of mercury poisoning.
Dimethylmercury, a colorless liquid, is one of the strongest known neurotoxins. It is described as having a slightly sweet smell, although inhaling enough vapors to detect its odor would be extremely hazardous. Test showed subsequently that Dimethylmercury would have penetrated the glove and started entering her skin within 15 seconds.
Shortly after the accident she began to notice definite symptoms that worried her – tingly fingers and toes, slurred speech. She began to have problems with her balance and her field of vision started to shrink. When one is exposed to oil smell and its accompanying chemicals or even oil on the beach or in puddles from rainfall should beware and take great care. Though oil toxicity might not be as dangerous as Dimethylmercury one should remember the lessons of Karen Wetterhahn, who was wearing protective gear. It was a great lesson because no one dreamed it was as dangerous as it is and they are repeating the same mistake in the Gulf.
A new chemical dispersant is being used in the cleanup effort — it’s toxic, it’s largely experimental, and it’s being sprayed in abundance into the ocean. It’s unclear at this point what exactly its long term impact on life. The active ingredient of the toxic chemical dispersant is a neurotoxin pesticide that is acutely toxic to both human and aquatic life, causes cancer, causes damage to internal organs such as the liver and kidneys simply by absorbing it through the skin and may cause reproductive side effects. The main ingredients of Corexit it is 2-Butoxyethanol, which is known to cause cancer, birth defects and has been found to cause genetic mutations and is a delayed chronic health hazard as well as an environmental hazardous material. Corexit also contains Arsenic, Cadmium, Chromium, Mercury, and Cyanide.
My suggestion for first steps is to read our site on sodium bicarbonate and then on magnesium chloride. Purchase and immediately get familiar with what is called magnesium oil and learn about transdermal medicine, for that’s how these medicinals are best applied. If you’re anywhere near where the wind could blow the poisons that are gathering in and above the Gulf, go to Cosco or the supermarket and buy fifty pounds of bicarbonate, you just might need it. The affected area will eventually include much of the southern and southeastern United States – probably an area that includes upwards of 50 million people, so expect supplies to sell out from all possible domestic sources very quickly for most of the substances if this information gets out and the oil flow is not stopped, which no one at this point is indicating or promising.
