Phospholipid Therapy

Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is one of the most exciting therapies now available at our clinic. PC has only recently received increased clinical focus because of its ability to dramatically improve the outcomes of patients in a wide range of disorders such as ALS, Lyme disease, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, MS, Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, autism, bipolar disorder, seizures, Hepatitis C, environmental illness, cardiovascular disease, and more.

Detoxification of neurotoxins requires that the cell membrane is nourished with balanced essential fatty acids (4:1, plus HUFAs) and supportive phospholipids. Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is the most abundant phospholipid of the cell membrane and protects the liver against toxicity and infection.

The liver plays a pivotal role in detoxification, but due to its fatty acid content and the lipid soluble characteristics of neurotoxins, lipid based interventions are required to impact toxic burdens. Once the liver has been damaged it can no longer metabolize fats normally. Pools of lipids are then deposited within hepatocytes throughout the liver. Beta oxidation of fatty acids is suppressed, impairing detoxification and prostaglandin production.

Extensive research with PC has revealed that it protects the liver against damage from alcohol, pharmaceuticals, environmental pollutants, xenobiotics and infection due to viral, bacterial and fungal manifestations. (Lieber 1994a, 1994b, 1995, 2001a, 2001b).

PC also directly up-regulates the fluidity of the cell membrane, improving its vitality, which is essential for all of metabolism, including neuronal transmission. Poor neuronal response is degraded in all the neurological disorders and is directly improved with Phosphatidylcholine (PC) therapy.

Raising PC levels plays an important role in improving memory and recall, and has clinically shown to improve the flow of information of all the senses and most significantly eyesight.

PC given either orally or intravenously helps restore the proper integrity of the cell membrane thereby restoring proper function of organ systems, especially the liver, the gut, the brain, immune system, heart, and hormonal system, which ultimately improves the total health of the individual.

IV Phosphatidylcholine & Glutathione
Intravenous Phosphatidylcholine and Glutathione offers a 1-2 punch against: cholesterol irregularities, cellular oxidation, oxygen free radicals, liver toxicity, low immunity and metabolic pollutants.

Glutathione has been known to medicine since 1888. In the last twenty years, this protein has been the object of intense research. Now, more than 57,000 scientific articles on Glutathione are published on MEDLINE and this library is enriched by 3,000 to 5,000 new articles each year.

Glutathione plays three vital roles in the body :

  1. maintains the immune system active
  2. powerful antioxidant and a free radical scavenger
  3. neutralizes pollutants and detoxifies the cells.

Glutathione is synthesized by using three amino acids: glycine, glutamic acid and cysteine. In our food, we usually get sufficient quantity of glycine and glutamic acid. However, cysteine is a problem and a limiting factor in the glutathione synthesis. The reason is simple, food cooking and pasteurization of milk products almost destroy cysteine completely. The consequence of this situation is that with age, we lose up to 40% of our reserves and this makes us vulnerable to the development of disease.

Here is what Dr. Jimmy Gutman, Emergency Physician and expert speaker on Glutathione, says: "In fact, your life depends on glutathione. Without it, your cells would disintegrate from unrestrained oxidation, your body would have little resistance to bacteria, viruses and cancer, and your liver would shrivel up from the eventual accumulation of toxins."

Doctors and experts agree that such a discovery happens once per generation and in a few years, Glutathione will be as part of standard tests as blood and cholesterol tests are today.
