Am I toxic?

Most likely. According to the Environmental Working Group, over 80,000 chemicals are being used daily in the United States. Scientists studying the human 'body burden' (pollution in people) tested the blood and urine of adult volunteers from five different states. Their laboratory tests uncovered an average of 171 pollutants (toxins) and 56 carcinogens in each of the volunteers.

According to the newest government report Presidents Cancer Panel all disease including cancer, lyme and most other disease conditions are linked to environmental factors.

Toxins in our body weaken our immune system and damage the nervous system which leads to illness, chronic disease and premature aging. After years of exposure and ingestion of these toxic substances our body becomes less efficient in eliminating toxins. We must have a means to eliminate toxins and heavy metals to lessen our body burden. It is beyond our control to completely eliminate our body's exposure to the deadly toxins, viruses and heavy metals we come in contact with on a daily basis.


What are neurotoxins?

Neurotoxins are substances attracted to the mammalian nervous system. They are absorbed by nerve endings and travel inside the neuron to the cell body. On their way they disrupt vital functions of the nerve cell, such as axonal transport of nutrients, mitochondrial respiration and proper DNA transcription.

The body is constantly trying to eliminate neurotoxins via the available exit routes — the liver, kidney, skin and exhaled air. Detox mechanisms include acetylating, sulfating, glucuronidation, oxidation and others. The liver is most important in these processes. Here most elimination products are expelled with the bile into the small intestine and should leave the body via the digestive tract. However, because of the lipophilic/neurotropic nature of the neurotoxins, most are reabsorbed by the abundant nerve endings of the enteric nervous system (ENS) in the intestinal wall. The ENS has more neurons than the spinal chord. From the moment of mucosal uptake the toxins can potentially take 4 different paths:

1. Neuronal uptake and via axonal transport to the spinal chord (sympathetic neurons) or brainstem (parasympathetic) — from here back to the brain

2. Venous uptake and via the portal vein back to the liver

3. Lymphatic uptake and via the thoracic duct to the subclavian vein

4. Uptake by bowel bacteria and tissues of the intestinal tract

 

Here is an incomplete list of common neurotoxins in order of importance:

1. Heavy metals — such as mercury, lead, cadmium and aluminum

2. Biotoxins — such as tetanus toxin, botulinum toxin (botox), ascaridin (from intestinal parasites), unspecified toxins from streptococci, staphylococci, Lyme disease, clamydia, tuberculosis, fungal toxins (black mold-cytotoxins) and toxins produced by viruses

Biotoxins are minute molecules (200–1000 kilodaltons) containing nitrogen and sulfur. They belong to a group of chemical messengers, which microorganisms use to control the host's immune system, host behavior and the host's eating habits.

3. Xenobiotics (man-made environmental toxins) — such as dioxin, formaldehyde, insecticides, and wood preservatives, PCBs etc.

4. Food Preservatives, excitotoxins and cosmetics — such as aspartame (diet sweeteners) food colorings, fluoride, methyl-and propyl-paraben, high fructose corn syrup (mercury) etc.

-Dr. Paul Cosman


What are the symptoms of neurotoxicity?

Any illness can be caused by, contributed to or exaggerated by neurotoxins. Fatigue, depression, insomnia, joint pain, headaches, memory loss and blunting of the senses are common early symptoms. All exposures over time get trapped in the lower quadrant of the lung which then leads to lung inflammation as well as the blockage within the lymphatic system.

-Dr. Paul Cosman


What are common causes of neurotoxicity?

Here is a short list of independent risk factors, which can either cause accumulation of metals in an otherwise healthy body or slow down/inhibit the body's own elimination processes.

  • Genetics
  • Emotions – head trauma – whiplash, etc.
  • Emotions – stress – especially in conception to childhood
  • Occupational exposure to toxic material – black mold – cytotoxions
  • Occupational exposure to toxic material – chemicals – work related
  • Fetal exposure – first 10 days of fetal development
  • Prior illnesses
  • Surgical operations
  • Medication or 'Recreational' drug use
  • Drink bottled water and or tap water
  • Eat commercially grown fruits and vegetables
  • High carbohydrate intake combined with protein malnutrition (especially in vegetarians)
  • Use of homeopathic mercury and or daily exposure to high fructose corn syrup
  • Constipation
  • Compromise of head/neck lymphatic drainage – sinusitis, tonsil scars, poor dental occlusion, etc. –lymphatic congestion)
  • Number of dental amalgam fillings over the patient's lifetime
  • Number of amalgam fillings the client’s mother had during conception
  • Military duty – aggressive use of vaccinations, exposure to nerve gases, etc.

All disease patterns are triggered by an emotional event that stirs up the heavy metal terrain of the body. The events will cause neurotransmitters to short circuit and the labeling of all kinds of neurological symptoms/conditions.

How can I detoxify?

There are many ways to detoxify. Some are more effective than others. At our office, you can detoxify with a Cold Laser Detox. As stated above, Cold Laser Detox is a neurotoxin release protocol, combining Low Level Laser Therapy and an Ionic Cellular Hand/Foot Spa Cleanse. This full body approach protocol encompasses balancing emotions/subconscious mind, reducing toxins at the source, alkalizing the body, resetting central nervous system and thyroid function, removing heavy metals/chemical toxicity (physical self), balancing viral/bacterial/fungal components, and stopping the oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals.

Once your Viral ScoreTM form (Initial Cold Laser Detox Form) has been reviewed, your top emotional essential oil for diffusing has been determined by a Zyto Hand Scan and you have hydrated with medical grade ionized Kangen Water®, the proper treatment will be based on:

Step 1) the frequencies utilized by the laser on acupuncture points/organs

  • including an emotional release
    • An 'emotion release' is exactly as it sounds: a releasing of embedded emotions likely tied to dis-ease by simply asking the patient to remember an event without sharing any information unless the patient wishes to. Certain emotions recalled are correlated to certain organs. This is also very effective for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. 

Step 2) the cleanse of toxins with the Ionic Cellular Hand/Foot Spa

  • To achieve maximum cehlation of neurotoxins, some nutraceuticals are recommended.

It could also be beneficial to have a full body thermography scan so you may see where problem areas are and to monitor treatment progress over time. By having results of a thermography scan, we can further customize your detox.

You should also learn about proper nutrition, take pro-biotics, use relaxation techniques that work for you, and drink healthy water.

Without enough fluid intake the kidneys may become contaminated with metals. The basal membranes swell up and the kidneys can no longer efficiently filter toxins. This process clogs up the vagus nerve (central nervous system) and creates a short circuit between cranial nerve and the rest of the body. The water we highly recommend is Kangen Water®. Kangen Water®, alkalized micro clustered water, releases most toxins from fat molecules. Kangen Water® is a four part water ionizer, tested and researched approved within this detox program. It provides the removal of the heavy metal contamination at source. At the proper pH (8.5 – 9.5) for drinking, it is micro clustered and provides liquid antioxidants. The ideal cluster size is 4 – 6 molecules per cluster and this facilitates really hydrating the body. The Kangen Water® enters the cell where there is a Free Radical; the radical will be neutralized by the antioxidant, preventing cellular damage. Use Kangen water for all household activities to reduce toxins from all sources. Our office provides FREE Kangen Water® pick up for our clients to experience the benefits along with their services.

What type of lasers are used?

Low Level Therapeutic Lasers:

  • Mk III (5mW Max Output/635nm Class III)
  • Mk V (5mW Max Output/635nm Class III)
  • EnerChi Elite Laser (Class I)

At less than 5mW of power, the lasers  will never cause tissue heating or damage. The visible light simply will let you know where the laser is being directed. Protective eyewear is not required. The therapy can be administered through natural fiber clothes so that the patient does not need to disrobe. The lasers are held at a comfortable distance from the tissue being treated.

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) will not stimulate the growth of existing cancer cells and is safe to use on cancer patients. There are no known side effects of true LLLT.


How do the lasers work?

These Low Level Therapeutic Lasers are very complex in their actions because they are designed to stimulate the physiology of the body through a mechanism called biomodulation or photobiomodulation. Biomodulation is the process of changing the natural biochemical response of a cell or tissue within the normal range of its function, stimulating the cell’s innate metabolic capacity to respond to a stimulus. A cell can heal itself by this basis. When biomodulation occurs from a photon transferring its energy to a chromophore it is referred to as photobiomodulation. These principles of light or energy medicine originated in the quantum physics of Einstein himself. He first introduced the concept of the LASER “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission Radiation”. He also stated that every living cell emits radiation called the “photon emission of living cells”, or what we commonly refer to as the aura. Albert Einstein, in 1917, proposed all living and nonliving matter represented dynamic electromagnetic fields, which exist in an electromagnetic environment – the universe! It took nearly 60 years for fellow physicists to begin to comprehend Einstein’s holistic worldview of quantum mechanics, and the relationship between matter, energy and health. 

One of the most important aspects of a physiological dose of therapy is that it is safe. It is safe no mater what the condition or pathology is, no matter what medications the patient is on, no matter what the patient may be allergic to, no matter what, a true LLLT unit will do no harm.

One of the most profound physiological effects of low level therapeutic lasers is the effect of Neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity represents the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity provides a way for nerve cells (neurons) in the brain to respond and compensate for injury and disease and adjust neuronal activity in response to a new situation or to changes in the environment.

Reorganizing the brain occurs by the mechanism of 'axonal sprouting' where damaged axons grow new nerve endings to reconnect neurons whose links were injured or severed. Undamaged axons can also contribute new nerve endings and connect with other undamaged nerve cells, forming new neural pathways to accomplish a needed function. In order for neurons to reconnect or form new connections, the neurons need active stimulation. LLLT provides one of the most powerful stimulants for Neuroplasticity known today and it provides that stimulation in a safe, therapeutically correct, organized manner. 

When photobiomodulation occurs, the photon activates a chromophore, amino acid, nucleic acid, or molecule. Activation of a single enzyme molecule rapidly catalyzes thousands of other chemical reactions amplifying the signal to the cell. This is similar to the, calcium regulated, 2nd messenger cAMP cascade. Biological amplification explains how systemic, cellular, and clinical effects can occur almost instantaneously after exposure to light therapies. 

This biological amplification process produces systemic effects – which mean that as you are treating a wound on the left hand, the wound on your right hand and the injury to your liver and kidney are also being treated equally as well. So while the infrared manufacturers brag about a 2 inch penetration of their energy, true therapeutic lasers are profoundly more advanced, producing systemic therapeutic results. 

Biological light receptors in living tissue, termed chromophores, have peak activation at wavelengths between 600nm and 720nm. 635nm falls within the wavelength spectrum of all biological chromophores in man and animals. One wavelength, 635nm, has the potential to activate every biological photo-sensitive receptor in the body. For this reason, we have selected only 635nm lasers for the therapy. 

The above mechanisms of action produce three basic functions in the body. It provides pain relief. It reduces or manages inflammation around injuries thereby controlling pain, swelling, redness, and heat. Finally it stimulates the growth of new cells to improve healing time. 635 nm laser light also inhibits the growth of almost all known infection causing bacteria. 

All tissues have optical windows and guards to let only specific forms of light penetrate and activate the chromophores and other light sensitive properties of the tissue. This requires the properties that only LASER light possesses. Collimated light is essential for penetrating the outer surface of the skin. Coherent light and polarized light is required to pass through the optical windows of different tissues.  

It is not only important for the light to be pulsed but the frequency pulsed is specific to the therapeutic response desired. Frequency addresses the very fundamental properties of your life and the world we live in. Each atom, element, molecule, cell, organism, or substance has its own ideal electrical wavelength and resonance frequency of vibration that coordinates its activities (Lakovsky, 1970). The body itself uses frequency to alter its functions and control its physiology.  

Brainwave Frequencies are frequencies associated with different mental states. A familiar example is the five brain wave ranges recorded by the EEG:

  • Delta Range 0.5 to 4 Hz - associated with deep sleep.
  • Theta Range 4 to 8 Hz - associated with dreaming sleep and other mental states where the mind is wandering, daydreaming, or imaging.
  • Alpha Range 8 to 13 Hz – associated with a relaxed but awake state.
  • Beta Range 13 to 30 Hz – associated with the normal awake/aware state and speech.
  • Gamma Range 30 to 60 Hz -associated with higher mental activity including perception and consciousness. General anesthesia eliminates gamma waves. 

Just as the brain can be stimulated to change function by introducing and changing resonant frequencies, frequency stimulation can alter all functions of the body by altering the frequency of the tissue.

How does the Ionic Cellular Hand/Foot Spa work?

A water module is place in the water to create a negative charge to stimulate meridians on hands or feet to communicate to the organs to release toxins in the water and to energize and oxygenize the body’s cells. Healthy oxygenated cells are extremely resistant to disease, illness, and early aging.

Electrical current is passed through the surgical steel which reacts with the water, resulting in ionization. Ionization is immediately visible through the explosion of continuous bubbles. Not only can you see the ionization process, but you can feel the bubbles rushing around your feet.

During your cleanse the water may undergo physical changes, particularly color as seen above (photo to be added). The chart below gives an example of what many experts believe the colors are attributed to: (chart to be added)
