Lipid detox therapy is a combination of several intravenous agents, along with a set of oral supplements. This therapy is effective in a broad range of conditions. These include: ALS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, MS, Lyme, Fibromyalgia, Autism, Cardiovascular conditions, Chronic Fatigue, Bipolar Disorder, Seizures, Hepatitis C, Environmental Sensitivity, and others. It affects a large number of conditions because of two main actions: normalization of cell wall structure/ function and fatty acids, and detoxification of chemicals and toxic metals.
The first agent used is sodium phenylbutyrate (SP). This IV is ideally given twice per week. It has numerous effects, including: decrease in ammonia levels, prevents cell death, and decrease inflammation, especially in the nervous system.
The second agent used is Phosphatidylcholine (PC). This IV is given one to two times per day. PC directly increases membrane fluidity and integrity, which is crucial for normal function. This is particularly true for neuronal response, which is decreased in all the neurological disorders. PC improves memory and recall, and has clinically shown to improve the function of all of the senses, especially vision.
The third agent used is Leucovorin. This is a B vitamin called Folinic acid. Leucovorin helps in detoxification, and also helps to stabilize the phospholipids in the cell membrane. This is given by IV 1-2 times a day.
The last agent used is glutathione (GSH). GSH is one of the body’s most powerful antioxidants. It helps to prevent free radical damage all over the body. Studies show that patients with neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, MS, ALS and Autism have low glutathione levels. This exposes the nerves and other tissues to increased free radical damage. It is also critical for detox. This is given 1-2 times a day as an IV.
In addition, there are both dietary and supplement requirements. Avoid all refined sugars and oils. Avoid all grains (including corn), potatoes, beans, and fruits, except berries. Never eat any synthetic sweeteners! Also avoid canola and peanut oils, as well as peanuts.
