Worried About Lead Toxicity? You Should Be

October 26, 2016

There are over 4,000 citations in the medical literature regarding the influence of a body burden of lead on our health.  Children have smaller bodies so when they drink a contaminated glass of water the amount of lead has a greater influence as the body tries to deal with it.

When you attempt to find out the lead level in the body by administering a blood test you are missing the fact that the body has ways of dealing with poisons and contaminants.  The body sequesters lead removing it from the blood stream and deposits it in tissues with a low blood supply in its effort to detoxify and prevent it from being distributed throughout the body.  An acute exposure can be detected in blood if the exposure is recent, during the first day or so. After that blood levels will test “within the normal range” so you have to look in other systems of the body to determine the level of contamination.  Lead is deposited in bone and fat tissue, fat tissue has a low blood supply and is somewhat more “stable”.  Well, guess what? Your nervous system and brain are made up of fats, cholesterol and others.  The accumulation of lead in bodies is of great concern in assessing the health or determining the source of symptoms.

When the blood levels are within “normal limits” on a blood test  the faulty assumption is made that the toxic substance is not a health factor.  Any amount of lead in the body is toxic, disturbing normal function to one degree or another.

Behavior problems; hyperactivity, temper tantrums, withdrawal, frequent crying of no apparent reason, fearfulness, refusal to play, drowsiness/fatigue, learning disability, speech disturbances, perceptual motor dysfunctions, mental retardation, seizures or convulsions, ataxia, encephalopathy, for children but also in the same vein for adults.

The interaction of lead with other metals in the contamination of the body are synergistic and then 1 + 1 does not equal twice the problems but magnifies the health problems.  Please consult the links on our website home page, top right hand corner at drmaulfair.com – doctorsdata.com and icimed.com specifically.

The Only Real Defense in Health Care

January 18, 2016
ANSWERS INSTEAD OF PRESCRIPTIONS LOGO

Stay healthy or work on regaining and maintaining good health and you will avoid all the mishaps and changes in “health care”.  Dr. Maulfair refers to the present system as disease care.  It is.  You have to have a disease to be admitted into the ranks of the cared for.  Common medical preventive measures prevent nothing, they detect problems.

Prevention is something you do.  You avoid toxins, you eat organic, clean food, you avail yourself of measures to avoid pharmaceuticals.  More importantly you find out how your body works, you exert some effort in understanding the ailments you have so you can differentiate good care from bad.  When your education is complete you help other people find out what to do about their situations.

Dr. Maulfair has started a podcast to educate those who listen about many aspects of medical care and the new paradigm in healing.  We still have the same old problem of this field not naming itself in a way that takes the confusion out of the noise in medicine you hear every day.  Alternative, Complementary, Functional, Anti-Aging, Intregrative,  Holistic or rather Wholistic since nothing is missing…oh, wait a minute; maybe the originators were thinking of filling the “hole” in normal medical care.  Who knows.

Certainly you hunger for a place to go where people listen, where underlying causes are searched for before the latest drug is offered.  How on earth does a pain killer for migraines headaches heal?…it does not…it dulls the pain and dulls you until the headache passes.  The question is why do have them?  Please start to help yourself and ask why.  Encourage your doctors to wonder why and if they refuse then find someone who will.

Listen to Dr. Maulfair’s podcasts and come to our workshops if you are within driving distance or just read the articles on our website, it is a start.

 

 

 

 

Diagnostic Tools for Clinical Practice Lead to Real Results in Effective Treatments.

March 29, 2015

Dr. Conrad G. Maulfair, Osteopathic Physician

Effective medical care includes looking for and finding the causes of someone’s symptoms. If a physician only offers to medicate symptoms you never find the causes of health problems and the real problems continue as the need for additional medication increases. An example, you have probably noticed, is people on blood pressure medications need more medication over time as the pressure marches upward because the underlying cause has not been addressed. When the cause of chronic problems is not addressed you seldom find a lasting improvement in health.

The heavy metal lead is associated with increase in blood pressure, to continue with this example, if you have high blood pressure you should have your lead levels in hair and red blood cells tested. Contact our office for a copy of a study synopsis from the Journal of the American Medical Association entitled “Blood Lead, Blood Pressure, and Hypertension in Perimenopausal and Postmenopausal Women.” Conclusions include blood lead levels positively associated with both systolic and diastolic blood pressure and risks of both systolic and diastolic hypertension among women aged 40-59 years. There is much more in this article so call us for the complete report.

Simple diagnostic procedures can demonstrate toxins such as pesticides reside in human fat tissue. The presence of fat stored toxins rob a person’s vitality and can seriously interfere with healthy aging. As an example, pesticides are directly correlated with the development of breast cancer. The EPA has long studied the prevalence of xenobiotics in the bodies of American public: they found residues of tens of toxins in all tissue samples taken across the country. Pharmaceutical drugs, street drugs and radiation are also stored in the body; in the case of drugs this is the reason past drug users still crave drugs and sometimes return to drug use.

Health conscious people recognize the interference and interruption of normal function fat stored toxins create. These toxins accelerate the aging process with all the pitfalls of developing chronic health problems.
In the case of heavy metal toxicity chelation therapy could be utilized to lower the levels of these toxins in your body. When they are removed the reasons for health problems diminish and you are healthier, hundreds of our patients have experienced the benefits of increased energy and less heart disease, lower blood pressure and improved arthritis. Diabetics often lower the levels of insulin they use, some can eliminate it,

Patients in our practice have an opportunity to address these problems with our rejuvenation programs which detoxify the body. The most effective program to eliminate fat stored toxins, such as pharmaceutical drugs, street drugs, pesticides, herbicides and environmental toxins is the sauna detoxification program described in a popular text on the subject titled “Clear Body Clear Mind”, by L. Ron Hubbard. We have this text for sale in our office or you can order it by going to our website links for clearbodyclearmind.org or purchase it through any bookstore.

This program is the program you may have heard is responsible for restoring the health of the rescue workers of 9-11. These contemporary heroes suffered much in the months following their service at Ground Zero. So toxic they couldn’t work and having to retire at young ages these men and women have been regaining their health through Mr. Hubbard’s program. We offer this identical program in our medical center in Orefield. Tours and informational consultations can be arranged by calling 610-682-2104. We also give ongoing health education seminars, call to reserve your seat.

What Do Heart Disease, Diabetes, Arthritis and Cancer Have In Common?

March 9, 2015

Diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and cancer are the big 4. Three of them are considered chronic degenerative diseases; they are ongoing and worsen over time. The likely common denominator among these diseases, and for that matter accelerated aging, is a toxic body load of heavy metals. Yes, toxic metals! There is a mountain of medical evidence validating the fact that small amounts of toxic metals; lead, cadmium, mercury, uranium, arsenic and others contribute to the development of chronic degenerative disease.

There are thousands of scientific references about lead in bodies associated with vascular disease, elevated blood pressure especially. Cadmium in the air over 28 cities was found to be associated with the incidence of vascular disease in people living in those cities.

Aluminum (al) has long been associated with decline of mental functions including Alzheimer’s disease. Aluminum also damages the genetic material DNA. DNA besides being involved in genes is essential in everyday cellular function. Without proper DNA function the function of cellular activity deteriorates causing chronic degenerative diseases. Aluminum within cells will impair the cells energy production and therefore its health.

Arsenic is a well known metal poison. Arsenic can be introduced into the environment via pesticides and the glass and electronics industries. Its presence in human bodies has been shown to be associated with cancer, and peripheral vascular disease. Arsenic along with lead, cadmium, and mercury are neuro-toxic and associated with cardiovascular disease. Arsenic also affects glucose tolerance and type 2 diabetes. Arsenic is added to animal feed to fight parasites in chicken.

The less toxic metals we carry around the healthier we will be. What is the best thing to do? There are three things: decrease the amount of toxic metals you are exposed to by finding out where they come from and avoiding future exposures, seek out the proper testing of heavy metal toxic load in your body, and finally remove the existing metal load with intravenous chelation therapy.

There is much that can be done to enhance and maintain a high quality of life. Handling toxic metals is an essential part of the effort.

Heart Disease? Diabetes? The Broad Benefits of Chelation Therapy

January 6, 2015

One of our patients reported these findings:

In 2001 I had a catheter test at Reading Hospital and was found to have 3 blocked arteries. One 50%, one 70%, and one 80% blocked.

In 2012 this test was repeated and all my arteries were found to be clear-NO BLOCKAGES! I have been doing chelation therapy for the past several years and it appears to have been very successful. Thanks you Dr. Maulfair!! J.G.

(J.G. has been doing chelation since 2006 at the rate of one treatment per month for 70 treatments TO ACHIEVE THAT RESULT… IT IS WORTH IT.)

Intravenous Chelation Therapy is a wonderfully effective, safe, comprehensive program that can benefit people with chronic degenerative diseases. People with conditions like heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, unhealing wounds, lack of energy and problems of aging can experience a resurgence of energy and life quality. This program is not new. It has been studied and offered to patients by many progressive physicians to hundreds of thousands of thankful people world wide for over 60 years. Patients who receive chelation therapy experience their quality of life improve first hand. Our patients report being able to walk without the use of their past aids, improved sleep, increased energy, improved sense of well being and many people return to work and previous sports as their illness abates. Their cardiologists notice the improvements.

Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy Recently Completed by the NIH.

It makes our day that we are no longer alone in these observations; the United States government via the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded a study on chelation therapy. The study called TACT, Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy, started in 2003. The results were just announced at the American Heart Association’s meeting November 4, 2012. The results were positive.

People in this trial who received Chelation Therapy had decreased hospitalizations for angina, compared to the control group. There were fewer deaths from heart attacks and strokes for the patients receiving chelation therapy. The chelation patients also needed less bypass surgeries and angioplasties; the findings were especially positive for patients who also suffered from diabetes. Chelation Therapy reduced cardiac events by 18% and by 39% for diabetic patients. The total reduction in cardiac events was statistically significant. Physicians conducting the study included university cardiologists and experienced chelation physicians.
Keep in mind all study participants had a previous heart attack before beginning the trial, 83% had either bypass surgeries, angioplasty with or without stents. The majority of participants had high blood pressure and 73% had been prescribed cholesterol lowering statin drugs. One thousand seven hundred people participated in the study. An additional finding was the unquestionable safety of Chelation Therapy.

If this therapy is so effective in reversing the disease process can you imagine how helpful it might be to utilize it as a preventive before you have serious symptoms? We keep people healthy with this therapy.

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.
