This is different, not the same old “disease care”.
I want to introduce our services to you. I am an independent physician providing care to my patients for over 40 years utilizing many medical anti-aging and cutting edge treatment modalities. The only thing missing in our center is a heavy reliance on pharmaceutical drugs as a treatment; we do not need them as we stress health and returning the body to normal function. We treat underlying causes of health problems. We relieve symptoms, but symptoms are the road signs pointing the way to the underlying problem, not the health problem itself.
I understand the problems of aging, I have been taking care of people who want to be vital, full of energy and in charge of their lives as they age and face normal problems of approaching menopause, andropause and chronic illness. You need a medical philosophy and practice you can count on to work and IMPROVE your condition, without merely tolerating illness.
My father, also an osteopathic physician who was a founding doctor of the Allentown Osteopathic Hospital, now St. Luke’s Hospital, stressed the importance of vitamins and minerals and osteopathic manipulation in our home. When I finished medical school I was trained to diagnose, recommend the proper medication and do osteopathic manipulative therapy as well as minor surgeries, I was not trained in the importance of nutrition and nutrients. After some years in clinical practice and further training in radiology, I realized my patients were coming back with the same complaints. Drugs and surgeries did not address the real cause of their health problems. I decided to study and train from a different perspective. Health. A novel idea. What does the body utilize to maintain health and fight off the problems of aging and disease? I found numerous “alternative” “complementary” treatment choices I could offer my patients and actually see them return to health and maintain it.
My own parents became my patients for the last decades of their lives and lived independently and in good health until they were 93 when they each died after short months of care. They lived long lives in health without intense medical interventions.
This is the life I wish for my patients, my family, and myself. Join us, we have room for you.
Thanks to Jon for the exposure this news, it is vital for every family.

Update: CDC whistleblower in touch with members of Congress
by Jon Rappoport
August 27, 2014
In a recent video interview with Brian Hooker, Gary Franchi of nextnewsnetwork.com has elicited several pieces of vital information.
Franchi’s interview is headlined: “CDC Responds: Admits Omitting Vaccine Data.” It is available at nextnewsnetwork and at YouTube.
Brian Hooker, PhD, Franchi’s interviewee, is one contact for CDC whistleblower William Thompson. Hooker has published a re-analysis of the CDC’s fraudulent work on the MMR vaccine, showing that the CDC indeed buried the connection between the vaccine and autism.
In the interview, Hooker states that whistleblower Thompson is in touch with members of Congress.
Since Thompson was a co-author on a crucial 2004 study exonerating the vaccine, and since Thompson now readily admits that study was a fraud, a few members of Congress might actually listen to him and then make noises about the need to…

Our summer has been in the way of updating our posting and letting people know more about our very special patients and activities. We are always aware of how courageous and brave our friends and patients are when they reach out to change the course of their health and take the bull by the horns and actively seek to help themselves improve their lives. I have always said that my husband, Conrad is the bravest man I know. He practices medicine with active research and a willingness to find answers for his patients. He takes to heart..”first, do no harm.” He, we, have a lot of fun with our medical center and watching people change their health status. Our staff is great, life is good.
We joined a new group recently and became part of a lecture series that is so easy to access. Donna Kasuska, ChemConscious.com, is a chemical engineer who has taken her vast experience in the direction of helping people understand and change their relationship to chemicals in their lives. She included us in the WISH Summit series of bodyenlightenment.com on Spring Cleaning. They offer a wonderful series on the influence of chemicals in our lives in the collection of interviews and make them so easy to download and take with you to listen as you can. Listen while you make an organic meal for your family! Donna’s interview link is http://www.bodyenlightenment.me/blog/2014/06/welcome-to-our-wish-spring-cleaning-summit-first-up-how-much-toxicity-can-our-bodies-take-interview-with-donna-kasuska/ and my interview is http://www.bodyenlightenment.me/blog/?s=Colleen+Maulfair.
We hope your summer is full of family and friends and good food, good times. We visited Harper’s Ferry and saw the film America last week and recommend both to you. A very good start to month of America’s birthday.
Grab a Cup of Coffee – long article but worth it if you have diabetes or heart disease or want to prevent them.
IS CHELATION THERAPY AN OPTION IN THE TREATMENT OF CHRONIC DEGENERATIVE DISEASE SUCH AS ATHEROSCLEROSIS, DIABETES AND ARTHRITIS? Dr Conrad Maulfair, D.O.
Chronic degenerative diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes and arthritis are called chronic degenerative diseases because they persist over a long period of time. Once the diagnosis of arthritis, diabetes or atherosclerosis is made it is generally accepted by patient and professional that the disease will be present for the rest of the patient’s life. What may escape notice is the disease process began long BEFORE symptoms were present and the diagnosis was made. A particularly salient example of this is atherosclerosis. Often the first “sign” or “symptom” of this disease is chest pain, if the disease is occurring in the arteries in the heart, or leg cramps, if it is occurring in the arteries in the legs. It could also be a stroke or strokelet if the disease is present in the carotid arteries. Subsequent to appropriate diagnostic procedures the patient is declared to have coronary artery disease, or peripheral vascular disease (blocked arteries in the legs) or carotid artery disease (blocked arteries in the neck). While the symptoms may seem to appear suddenly and the diagnosis made in a relatively short period of time, the arterial disease process, which resulted in the symptoms and the diagnosis, started 20, 30 or 40 years earlier.
Let us briefly examine the important parts of this chronic disease process. Our body is composed of approximately 10,000 billion individual cells. They are designed to perform specific functions. There are heart muscle cells, designed to contract and pump blood throughout the body. There are blood vessel cells present in numerous layers including cells that line the inside of the arteries, muscle cells and elastic fiber cells, designed to transport the blood, carrying nourishment to every cell. Keep in mind that the muscle and elastic fiber of the artery pumps blood along with the heart. These cells, fibers can become stiff, thus hardening of the artery. There are liver cells and kidney cells designed to clean the blood. The health of our individual cells is important then, is it not? If our cells are healthy, we are healthy, if they are not, we are not. When numerous cells and other substances in the body incur damage over a long period of time, a disease, for example, atherosclerosis, is diagnosed. Damaged cholesterol, for example, is deposited in artery walls and is an important part of the atherosclerotic disease process. This process is ongoing for years and years before it becomes a problem and before obvious symptoms occur. The result of this damage is the cell’s inability to function normally, a decreased ability to protect itself and perhaps even death and destruction.
Damaged cholesterol is the main ingredient in plaque, NOT undamaged, normal cholesterol. Medical science has been studying this damage and destruction for many years. It is known that a significant portion of this damage is caused by something called free radicals. Free radicals are reactive molecules that cause damage to cells and tissues by robbing them of electrons. This can happen to the lining of your arteries. It can happen to cholesterol. It can happen to the genetic material, the RNA and DNA within the cells. Virtually anywhere free radicals are present, damage to cells or tissue can result. Damage from free radicals left unchecked day after day, week after week, year after year results in the inability of cells and tissues to function normally. Eventually destruction, decreased function and death can result. The symptoms of disease processes then become obvious.
It is doubtful there is a person in the United States over 40 who does not believe, with certainty, that cholesterol is bad and that it causes blocked arteries. Most people regard high levels of cholesterol in the diet and in blood akin to a death sentence from atherosclerotic disease. People believe high levels of cholesterol result in an increased risk of heart attack and stroke when it is only true that a certain type of cholesterol makes up a significant part of the plaque that blocks arteries. This is the LDL type of cholesterol. It is not generally understood that it is not the amount of LDL cholesterol in the body that causes the plaque build up, but rather DAMAGED LDL cholesterol that makes up the majority of the plaque.[i] In other words, when LDL cholesterol is damaged by free radicals, it is much more likely to stay in the artery wall. If the LDL cholesterol is not damaged, it is less likely to be deposited in the artery wall. One of the primary effects of a comprehensive chelation therapy program is the potential to reduce free radical damage thus protecting the cholesterol.
Calcium is an important mineral nutrient. As we all know it is an essential ingredient in healthy bones and teeth. It is also an important factor in properly functioning cells including muscle cells. It is well known that calcium becomes an important part of the plaque structure contributing to making it “hard”, hence “hardening of the arteries”. This form of calcium is called metastatic calcium. A study from 1944 in the Journal of Pathology discovered evidence of calcium in the walls of arteries, where it should not be, long before there was any plaque formation.[ii] Although calcium is one of the many nutrient substances is essential for a healthy body it can be destructive. Another important mode of action of a comprehensive chelation therapy program is lowering of minerals in the body including the metastatic calcium deposited in the body tissues where it does not belong.
Free radical damage can be accelerated significantly if the minerals iron and copper are present in the area where the damage is occurring. Toxic metals such as lead, cadmium, and arsenic can also contribute to accelerating the disease process and are also carcinogenic. Another mode of action of the comprehensive chelation therapy program is the removal of toxic metals and excessive iron and copper.[iii]
In summary, there are numerous damaging reactions that occur within the body at the cellular level resulting in the development of many chronic degenerative diseases including atherosclerosis. A comprehensive chelation therapy program is individually designed for each patient to treat or prevent the disease processes.
Let us explore the component parts of such a program. A properly prescribed, dispensed and monitored chelation therapy program is composed of three basic parts. The first part is the intravenous chelation treatment, which removes the metastatic calcium and the iron and copper which accelerate free radical damage. It also removes toxic metals such as lead and cadmium. The second part of the program includes specific nutrients, taken orally, that are essential for healthy cell function, and antioxidants as well as other substances to support and enhance the immune system. Mineral nutrients must be replaced. The third part of the program is diet and exercise. Educating oneself about the effects of free radicals and reducing free radical exposure is essential.
Numerous studies, evaluations, and medical papers have been written about chelation therapy over the past 40 years. Intravenous chelation treatments have been used for over 30 years with children to remove lead from the soft tissues of the body. It is extremely safe. Saunders medical textbook, Cardiovascular Drug Therapy, published in 1996, has a chapter dealing with chelation therapy and references 65 scientific articles.[iv] A recent study published in Evidence Based Integrative Medicine 2005; 2 (1), Insert footnote mark clearly shows evidence of the benefits of a comprehensive intravenous chelation program. People who had intravenous chelation therapy for vascular disease were followed for three years and experienced fewer cardiac events than people treated with bypass surgery, angioplasty or conventional medical therapy.
Studies have shown that millions of Americans are seeking alternative medical choices and relying less on the usual drugs and surgical medical modalities. It is encouraging to see that segments of the medical establishment are beginning to agree. A 1998 article in the American Journal of Medicine states “coronary arteriography (heart catheterization) is inadequate for assessing the severity of diffuse (many vessels) CAD (coronary artery disease)”. The authors also said that the adverse outcomes of invasive procedures such as bypass surgery and angioplasty outweigh the benefits when performed on patients who have good heart function. Their conclusion went on to say that this knowledge, which they gathered from 183 references, “… provides the basis for a shift in the management of CAD from an invasive procedure oriented viewpoint currently dominant in cardiology toward a non-invasive orientation.[i]
Chelation therapy is a safe, non-invasive treatment for, and prevention of, chronic degenerative diseases.

Vital information for all families…we get calls from people wanting off these drugs every week. People know they do not help and they are the source of many ailments they did not have before the use of psychiatric meds. Please pass this on to your friends. Jon has many interesting articles on this subject!

In court, the tide may be turning against psychiatric-drug damage.
A recent jury decision, in which Dr. Peter Breggin testified as an expert witness, highlighted the extreme danger of the drugs.
The civil case was filed on behalf of a boy diagnosed with autism, who was then dosed with antidepressants and anti-psychotic medications (Risperdal and Zyprexa).
The boy developed two conditions, called tardive dyskinesia and tardive akathisia. Dr, Breggin’s website (www.breggin.com) depicts these conditions:
“Tardive dyskinesia describes a group of persistent or permanent movement disorders caused by antipsychotic (neuroleptic) drugs including Risperdal, Zyprexa, Invega, Abilify, Geodon, Seroquel, Latuda, Fanapt and Saphris. In addition to typical tardive dyskinesia spasms and twitches of his face, eyelids, and tongue, the youngster developed a severe case of tardive akathisia involving torturous internal agitation that drove him into…

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, this statistic is not limited to men. Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in women, not breast cancer, not uterine cancer. Although a very common health problem currently, coronary heart disease and heart attack date back to the early 18th century. The first issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, in 1812, included an article about angina (chest pain from coronary artery disease). Since that time much has changed in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease; unfortunately most of the currently popular treatment modalities do not address the causes of the disease but rather treat the symptoms (the result of the disease). There are alternatives, there are choices, and there is a better way.
It is believed by the medical profession, and generally accepted by the public, that high cholesterol is the cause of hardening of the arteries, heart attacks and strokes. There is ample scientific evidence to the contrary. Currently treatment of hardening of the arteries includes lowering cholesterol levels in the blood by diet and or drugs. One example of the ample scientific evidence suggesting that cholesterol is not a significant factor in heart disease is a study done by the UCLA medical school citing 75% of people who had heart attacks had cholesterol levels within the acceptable range.
It is a fact that cholesterol is a major constituent of the plaque that builds up in an artery. It is also a generally held belief that there is good and bad cholesterol (HDL and LDL). The simple presence of LDL cholesterol does not make it harmful. It becomes harmful when it is altered from its natural form. In an altered form it is more likely to contribute to plaque in the artery wall. Damaged LDL cholesterol, when situated in the arterial wall, gets stuck and over time more is added and plaque progresses. So a key question to ask is not what the LDL cholesterol level is, but rather what may be going on causing damage to LDL cholesterol?
The answer to this question is of critical importance; anything that contributes to free radical damage is the primary culprit. Insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, flame retardants, artificial food coloring, artificial food flavoring, sugar substitutes, medical drugs, toxic metals (lead, cadmium, arsenic, uranium and others) are especially damaging to normal cholesterol.
The treatment of coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis in general must then include decreasing exposure to all of the above. As treatment, removing as much of the above contaminants as possible, already accumulated in the body, is key. The removal of chemicals is achieved via a sauna detoxification program. The removal of toxic metals is achieved with an appropriately prescribed comprehensive chelation therapy program. The importance of the removal of toxic metals and metastatic calcium (calcium located in soft tissues, where it is not supposed to be) cannot be over emphasized.
Numerous studies over the 60 years that chelation therapy has been used therapeutically have shown its potential to improve circulation and as a result, decrease the risk of heart attack, stroke and amputation. A study funded by the National Institute of Health and reported November of 2012 is the latest study proving chelation therapy decreases heart attack and stroke even in people, who prior to the study, had heart attacks. The improvement shown was especially significant for people in the study who had heart disease AND diabetes.
So if you have coronary artery disease, or if you have coronary artery disease AND diabetes, you might want to learn more. The Maulfair Medical Center provides free educational seminars. Our website is drmaulfair.com. Read more…
