UNDERSTANDING AND TREATING TOXICITY-RELATED DISORDERS
The Toxicity is the Disease: Can Our Bodies No Longer Detox?
Copyright 2003 by Howard Reminick, Ph.D., Ohno Institute on Water and Health; USA
The body is under constant attack. Environmental contaminants make their way into the air, food and water, and invade our body. Rapid environmental changes in modern society have been a factor in the breakdown of the body's defenses and a rise in immune-related diseases. Although we are living longer, we are forced to live a longer period of time with chronic disease associated with aging, resulting from the life-long effects of environmental toxicity.

The human body floats in a sea of magnetic fields--those of the earth, moon, sun, and other galactic fields. The body is full of magnetic materials. Every cell and atom of the body is a small magnetic dynamo. The body's fields, which are very tiny, are measured in devices called SQUIDS. The earth's field is 100,000 times or more stronger than the body's! We are so dependent on the earth's fields that astronauts in space for long periods require artificial magnetic fields to maintain health.

Conventional medicine has long opposed "alternative" treatment techniques. With many of these, although they provide benefits to those using them, their mode of action was unexplained scientifically. Magneto therapy (treatment of illness with magnetic current) has been extensively researched and the physiology of its benefits documented.
Life developed under the influence of the earth's geomagnetic field. Although this field is relatively small, it plays a major role in many bodily functions. All tissues of the body and nervous system carry electromagnetic charges. These in turn react to magnetic fields. Cell regulation is governed by electromagnetic currents of the body. The body itself creates a magnetic field (termed bio-magnetism) which can be measured by sensitive magnetometers. In disease states these body electromagnetic potentials are altered and again are measurable. The effects of magnetics on the body is called magneto-biology, the subject of this article.

The field of biological dentistry is rapidly gaining acceptance as an alternative to traditional, mainstream dentistry because of its sound health principles and practices, and attention to toxicology. Although it has made inroads among a more informed public, it still maintains the reputation as "new age" and controversial, due to the resistance from the established dental industry and the political pressure of the American Dental Association. Two controversial areas practiced in biological dentistry which draw criticism from mainstream dentists are removal of mercury amalgam fillings and chelation. With more and more studies under way to provide sound, scientific evidence on the value of these two practices, leaders in the field will soon be able to establish guidelines and policies, leading to its acceptance as an equal provider of mainstream dental care.

Water, which makes up over 70% of the body's structure, is the most influential and vital component which provides the body with a mechanism to maintain and restore homeostasis.(1) However, environmental changes have imposed many new pathologic influences, which have overtaxed the body's ability to remain in a state of balance.(2) Among these are toxic drinking water, and soil toxicity and mineral depletion which affect nutritional components in food. 3 The results can be seen in the rise in incidence of chronic, degenerative diseases, which are not successfully treated by conventional medicine.(4,5) In fact, this dilemma has been further compounded by the standard procedure of over-administering medications which present long-term difficulties in the body's ability to maintain its state of balance, or homeostasis.(6,7)

Introduction: Biological dentistry has long been a proponent of eliminating mercury in dental fillings, due to its extensive life of releasing high toxicity into the blood. Chelation is a highly effective procedure in removing mercury, as well as other heavy metals. The experimental treatment, Nariwa, a naturally magnetized water from Japan, has been studied for over five years and has been found to increase cell hydration, assimilation of nutrients into the cells, tissue detoxification and lower pH acidity. Previous uncontrolled trials with Nariwa water showed consistently higher mercury excretion levels than had previously been found after an IV-DMPS (di-mercaptopropane sulphonic acid) chelation treatment.

A major problem with aging disease is that even when the cause has been treated and seemingly under control, the cells still retain the germs in a latent state, and toxicity of the medications used to destroy them. As the body ages and the immune system declines, this makes it possible for the conditions of disease to re-emerge. Contributing heavily to this problem is underhydration, which is common among the aging population.
Magnetic Bio-Stimulation in Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy: A Novel Intervention - A Randomized, Double-Placebo Crossover Study

The pathophysiology of diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) is complex and poorly understood. Despite the current state of technology, dysesthetic pain in the extremities of diabetics and other patients with neuropathies remains a refractory problem. Conventional treatment is largely symptomatic, somewhat arbitrary, and often ineffective. Prior preliminary studies suggested that the application of magnetic foot pads may be a modifiable factor in intractable neuropathic pain syndromes. The primary objective of this randomized, double-placebo control, crossover trial was to test the effectiveness of magnetotherapy in neuropathic pain and also to assess the role of placebo. Secondary objectives were to quantify nerve conduction electrophysiologic changes and neurologic examination changes over a 4-month period. Of 24 initial patients, 19 completed the 4-month trial. There were 10 patients with advanced and refractory DPN (Stage II/III) and 9 non-DPN. Improvement was significantly more pronounced in the diabetic cohort, 90% versus 33%, at the end of four months (p < 0.02). During the first month, the placebo response was noted to be the same in both groups (22%) for symptoms of burning and numbness and tingling, whereas in the second month, the placebo effect was greater in the DPN cohort (38% versus 22%). This was felt to represent an overshoot phenomenon. At the end of 4 months, improvement was significantly more pronounced in the diabetic cohort for burning (p < .05) and numbness and tingling reduction (p < .05). Neuropathologic differences identified severe axonal damage principally in the diabetic cohort (absent CMAP 60%, absent SNAP 100%), whereas mild demyelinating changes were seen principally in the N-DPN group. These severe axonal changes were strongly predictive of clinical success and responsiveness. There were no significant serial changes in the neurologic examination or electrodiagnostic studies. Painful dysesthesias associated with C-fiber dysfunction in the diabetic cohort responded dramatically to exposure to static magnetic fields. The most plausible explanation of benefit and suppression of symptoms was that the K+ internal rectifying channels were stimulated producing repolarization and/or hyperpolarization. Despite the uncertainty regarding the precise mechanism of this novel approach, the results are impressive and suggest that a legitimacy exists for magnetotherapy as a safe and unique therapy in neuropathic diabetic foot pain. These preliminary data need to be validated by a larger longitudinal study.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – Dr. W. Bradley Worthington, former president of the Tennessee Society of Anesthesiologists has used Biomagnets on more than 1,000 patients with tremendous success. “They’ve proven effective in more than 80 percent of the patients. In some cases such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, the success rate is 95%” (the success rate for surgery is less than 35%).
