Maulfair Medical Center Medical Alert: Alzheimer’s Disease Not Just Aluminum

December 11, 2014

It has been suggested for many years that many people who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease have been shown to have deposits of aluminum in their brains and the connection between aluminum and Alzheimer’s disease has been fairly well-discussed and generally accepted as, at least, a contributing factor. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) was unknown prior to the 20th century. The first case was published in 1907 by a German psychiatrist by the name of Alois Alzheimer. Text books on pathology up to 1938 did not mention any of the neurological changes that take place within the brain that cause Alzheimer’s disease. The epidemic of Alzheimer’s disease increased dramatically after 1950, Alzheimer’s disease tends to be more prevalent in “developed countries”. It was around 1950 that copper plumbing became widely used in “developed countries”; it is felt that the leaching of copper from copper plumbing is a major factor in the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Many diseases have multiple factors and contributing causal agents so it may well be a combination of aluminum and copper.
This potential for copper to be a contributing factor in the development of Alzheimer’s disease was supported by studies with laboratory animals in which the changes in the brains of the animals, fed copper in their drinking water, were exactly the same substance called amyloid-beta that occurs in Alzheimer’s disease patients’ brains. It was also shown that these laboratory animals had twice as much copper lining their blood vessels in their brains. The brain can remove this amyloid-beta with a protein called LRP (lipoprotein receptor related protein). This substance escorts the amyloid out of the brain. It was found during this research that copper damages the LRP and it stops working. Of interest, the US EPA allows 1.3 parts per million of copper in human drinking water which is over ten times the amount used in these animal experiments.
There are two basic forms of copper. One is organic copper which is in the food we eat and is bound to food proteins. It is therefore metabolized by the liver and is safe. An inorganic copper is a salt of copper which is the kind that is typically put in nutritional supplements and leaches into drinking water. It is not metabolized by the liver and increases the body’s overall copper pool where it becomes available to cause toxicity; it generates reactive oxygen species (free radicals). Free radical damage is a major feature of the Alzheimer’s disease of the brain.
Research has also shown that many people with Alzheimer’s disease also are deficient in zinc and zinc supplementation is typically part of a comprehensive chelation therapy program.
As far as dietary sources of copper are concerned, red meat is a common source. Processed meats including hot dogs, sausage and bacon are also a source. Copper sulfate used as a bactericide and fungicide sometimes on meat and fat and meat products can also be a source. Copper sulfate has also been used as a fungicide, bactericide in crops of rice, wild rice, cherries, oranges, wine grapes, peaches, nectarines, walnuts, almonds, lemons, apricots and grapefruit. You can also have your water tested for copper. If you have your own water treatment system, reverse osmosis is about 99% effective in removing copper.
Chelation therapy chelates or removes toxic metals from the body, including minerals such as copper and aluminum. The use of chelation therapy to treat someone who has Alzheimer’s disease may be helpful, depending upon how long the condition has been obvious. It will certainly be helpful in retarding early Alzheimer’s disease and a major factor in decreasing the potential of its occurring in the first place.
Other research has shown that iron can also contribute to the brain changes that occur in Alzheimer’s disease. Damage to DNA is involved in Alzheimer’s disease and both iron and copper interfere with the activity of two enzymes that repair DNA damage.
In addition to decreasing your exposure to copper and inappropriate levels of iron, chelation therapy to remove them should be an essential part of treating existing and contributing to preventing the advent of Alzheimer’s disease. The good news is something can be done about it, and as usual, with all chronic degenerative diseases, the sooner someone commences on an appropriate program, the more effective it will be and the more long-lasting will the effect be.

Reduce Stress…this is an article we give our patients.

November 21, 2014

Reduce Stress

In these turbulent times we want to invite you to do all you can to improve a good night’s sleep, insure you have a strong immune system, are feeling well enough to exercise and know that the quality of the food you eat has everything to do with your health and happiness.

YOU NEED EVEN MORE… you need the knowledge that our medical center stands at the top of the heap with regards outcomes and results. We help the toughest cases and those who know how to avoid developing health problems in the first place. We are sending you this notice to summarize the benefits we offer. Our first recommendation to you is to avoid pharmaceutical drugs of all kinds. If you must use them use them the way we do: use the smallest amount for the shortest period of time.

Infusion therapy is offered in our center because most people have poor digestion and do not eat foods that are healthful. While we educate you on proper dietary choices we offer treatments that deliver nutrients needed to fight disease and prevent problems in the form of intravenous treatments. WHY? you ask. Results. Delivered directly into your blood stream a trouble free intravenous treatment (IV for short) is supervised by our talented nurses while you read or sleep or work on your computer or watch you personal DVDs. Nutrients and other infusions speed recovery to normal function and help prevent symptoms of all kinds from developing to begin with.

If you have cancer and are undergoing treatment we support you with nutrient IVs and also high dose vitamin C. Well tolerated, high dose vitamin C is given in amounts you could not take by mouth. No need to be digested it is immediately available to your body for nutrition but also to combat cancer directly. Cancer Centers of America are doing an IRB on high dose vitamin C in their Chicago facility. We have been offering this treatment to our patients for years. Although we do not treat cancer directly we support your immune system and help you fight that much harder. People report fewer side effects from chemotherapy when combining the use of both philosophies of medicine.

Vitamin C intravenous treatments also fight viruses and used pre and post surgery enhance the healing process. St. Agnes Burn Center uses IV vitamin C for this very reason to help burn victims, it speeds healing and helps prevent infection. People with influenza, mononucleosis, upper respiratory infections, Lyme disease and liver disease all benefit under our care. You can also use these infusions to remain healthy during high flu outbreak months.

If you suffer from migraines, muscle spasms, asthma, heart rate irregularity, angina, menstrual cramping, constipation, Raynaud’s syndrome, esophageal spasm, back muscle spasm and intestinal spasm, you will benefit by infusions of magnesium. The health giving properties are abounding in the medical literature and you will find many reasons to use magnesium as you research its uses. Low energy, fatigue, weakness, inability to sleep, anxiousness, nervousness, irritability are also improved with mega doses of magnesium. You could not take the amount in an IV by mouth as you would get diarrhea due to the muscle relaxant properties of magnesium.

Glutathione is essential for normal liver function. It is minimally absorbed when taken orally but when you give infusions of glutathione it supports liver function. If you are a past drug abuser or medical drug over user this is a very important treatment to help your liver function better. People with cancer typically have stressed liver function and benefit from this treatment. A series of infusions of glutathione can be used in conjunction with vitamin C. There is evidence mounting that people with severe drug reactions to fluoroquinolone antibiotics benefit a great deal by the use of glutathione.

The king of the hill remains chelation therapy. It has recently enjoyed demonstrated benefits for diabetic patients and heart and circulatory problems in the NIH national study which clearly show its benefits. The study cited its safety and efficacy. The main study investigator was a skeptic and now he is heading up the effort to do a chelation study for wound healing. Chelation therapy helps the body heal and prevents circulatory problems. Inflammation lies at the bottom of most symptoms of aging, inflammation caused by heavy metals picked up and stored in the body disrupting normal function. We have tons of clinical evidence of the benefits of chelation therapy. We have scientific studies, pre and post treatment, of our patients that clearly shows the benefits and healing properties of chelation. Without a doubt the benefits are known by medical scientists as a whole, but the business interests of big pharma and big medicine will not give way without calling every doctor using alternative complementary medical treatments a quack. So be it… if it gets the results, if it changes and reverses circulatory problems, as documented by diagnostics commonly used, then it must be EFFECTIVE AND HEALTHFUL!! We have reversed circulatory problems due to diabetes that could have resulted in amputations, we have successfully treated wounds that were slow to heal, heart problems and we have helped thousands of people slow the aging process and enjoy their active lives.

Billions of dollars spent on invasive procedures could be saved if the public was able to avail themselves of chelation therapy and other IV therapy for prevention and treatment of existing disease processes. You do not change or stop the disease when you have a bypass surgery, the disease process continues. Spend some time in our reception area and read the hundreds of benefits people have experienced in our center. Patients themselves are the best testimony to health restored.

Come to our seminars and we will help you understand why so many ignore the flack and come to us. In the meantime call and we will send you materials amplifying our discussion; better yet, go to our website and watch the video. Check out our links and research for yourself all the benefits of our medical center. We are always here to give you a tour, call and come by. Check out icimed.com to find a doctor near you.

Veterans, Construction Workers, Past Drug Users, People with Chronic Health Problems All Benefit

November 10, 2014

When you look for underlying reasons for health problems and symptoms you find toxins in one form or another at the base of the mountain.

Changing your diet, detoxifying with a number of common methods can do wonders for your health and well-being. Some people, however, find they cannot get lasting results with self-care and these are the people who need the help of a program of thorough detoxification.

Toxins are stored in adipose tissue throughout the body. That’s right, fat tissue. The body chooses fat tissue because it has a low blood supply, so storing toxins in fat means they may stay out of circulation in the blood stream for some time; until the time you are exercising or missing a meal and your body burns “that” fat tissue for energy. The only thing you notice is you feel like you are drugged or spacey or just plain ill; developing a headache for no reason you can put your finger on. The reason is within you, your body just released from fat storage a bit of toxins into your blood stream and you are feeling it. Most people answer this problem with more toxins, like an aspirin or antidepressant. That does not work; it makes you worse over time.

The science is strong and growing in scope. The Environmental Working Group found evidence of 287 chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of 10 infants. The US Geological Survey measured Organic waste Water Contaminants in 139 streams in 30 of our 50 states. 80% of the streams had measurable “owc’s” including cholesterol drugs, insect repellents, triclosan (an anti-microbial), fire retardants and detergent. 80,000 tons of carcinogens are released into the air annually in North America; there are 2100 chemicals in most municipal water supplies and over 50,000 chemicals in commercial use. The toxic metal cadmium in the air over 28 cities is connected to higher levels of vascular diseases for residents in those cities. NYU School of Medicine researchers established a causal link between air pollution and arteriosclerosis in 2005. The Environmental Health Perspectives Journal cited toxins such as PCB’s, dioxin and pesticides increase arteriosclerosis and fat in artery walls. We could go on and on. The body of scientific knowledge of the health problems cause by contaminants grows monthly.

As you age it starts to become apparent that you are harboring more toxins as you can experience a lasting fatigue, or if a user in the past you crave drugs, while developing symptoms that stick around. Symptoms arising from toxic metals like mercury, arsenic, cadmium and other others, as well as pesticides, herbicides, food additives like msg and aspartame and the toxins from medical and street drugs accumulate and overwhelm your liver and other organs or simply give you symptoms that do not go away.

Taking antioxidants helps in the detoxification pathways and prevents some toxins from harming your body. Utilizing various detoxification protocols like colonics and digestive detoxification methods helps to some extent but fail to reach the toxins stored in adipose tissue and the myelin sheath around the nerves of the body. What releases the toxins from deep fat stores throughout the body? We know of no other effective program to do so other than chelation therapy for heavy metal detoxification and the Hubbard method of sauna detoxification of the hundreds of other chemicals and poisons and mercury in your body stores.

With the daily use of nutrients and niacin, mild exercise and dry heat sauna you can reduce the levels of toxins in your body to the point where you feel a resurgence in well being, energy and mental clarity you desire. The complete program protocol can be found in the book by Hubbard, Clear Body Clear Mind. Followed precisely this program is profound in its benefits.

Chelation therapy can be used as a preventive program to clean up the ravages of daily living with a maintenance program of a treatment every month. Taking high quality nutrients and eating clean, organic foods, avoiding the chemicals in manufactured foods, goes a long way in preventing the build up toxins in your body. Avoiding sources of contamination is key to healthy aging and keeping ones wits.

Put this on your “KEEP ME UPDATED LIST” health news.

September 18, 2014

We have some interesting and heartbreaking news in the world of medicine these days. There are references you should put on your “keep me updated list.”

You know, it was 1993 when the pharmaceutical world secured the right to advertise direct to the public and the growth of television advertising of drugs increased 4,000% by 1999. With the networks dependent on the revenue from these companies do you feel you get a fair, unbiased reporting of the news in the medical field? Do you think the demand from patients to their physicians for the latest and greatest “drug ad” change the way physicians treat their patients?

If you want information that is factual you have to dig for it and you have to be interested. If you fail to take the responsibility for checking out your medical choices you could drastically affect the outcomes you hoped for. In the case of vaccinations for children the most explosive news in years has gone unreported in the television media. A CDC scientist, William Thompson, went public with the news that he and his co-authors cooked studies on the MMR vaccine; they hid the fact that there was a connection between the vaccine and the occurrence of autism in vaccinated children. We knew this was the case from the hundreds and thousands of parents that observed the connection in their families. Add to your “keep me updated list” an investigative reporter Jon Rappoport to keep current on these facts and more with his site nomorefakenews.com.

A new diet drug has been released that has a hidden anti-depressant in it and suicide risk as a side-effect. You can find news like this with The Alliance of Natural Health USA, www.anh-usa.org. Dr. Maulfair advises his patients wait at least five years before taking any new drug as the release of the drugs into the population is, in itself, the research of side-effects. The clinical trials run by the manufacturers themselves open the door for false interpretations of the results and the trials are small and short lived. When the drug hits the American marketplace the side effects start appearing in the FDA data base, waiting five years gives you more security in determining if the risk of the drug is worth it’s use. Obviously if you had a serious health crisis it may make sense to try a drastic measure of taking an experimental drug. Dr. Maulfair also recommends some “old” tried and true medications whose complete list of side effects are well known and those that have far less risk.

For those of us who want to take more responsibility for the outcomes of health care choices The Alliance of Natural Health gives you a directory of organizations of physicians for you to search for their help in your city. Beyond self care there are health professionals and doctors who offer a wide range of treatments that are not drugs.

Citizen’s Council for Health Freedom, cchfreedom.org will bring you the latest in the changes in health care and Obama care updates. This is the news you will not see in the common media and the legislation that is proposed. This site is really a survival tool if you want to make your choices fully informed. Along with our friends, the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons, www.aapsonline.org, you will learn how doctors are changing the choices you have and opening clinics that are cheaper per procedure than those offering covered services. AAPS also gives you intelligent articles and updates on the legal status of various aspects of government health care.

One TV network reported the linkage between artificial sweeteners and adverse health problems.  In line with our counseling of patients they explained these chemicals can ruin your digestive tract and are considered by the body as any toxin would be.  Avoiding them is key to good health.  There are low glycemic choices.

We find that the smartest choice at this point are health savings accounts combined with very high deductible plans for emergencies. Finding independent doctors in your town can be tough as the hospitals are employing most but it is still possible to find an independent physician through these resources.

We wish for you great health. Your best hope for a happy life is being healthy and not needing any invasive interventions.

Commercial announcement from Dr. Maulfair

September 9, 2014

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.

Here it is. All the people who said we were making it up, inventing charges of fraud at the CDC…well, here it is. CDC Whistleblower William Thompson’s own statement, released from his lawyer’s office today.

I’ll have more to say about Thompson’s confession. But for now, read his words, particularly the opening. The 2004 CDC study on the MMR vaccine and autism was cooked. It was fraud.

Update: CDC whistleblower in touch with members of Congress

by Jon Rappoport

August 27, 2014

www.nomorefakenews.com

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…
