What is very notable about this study is the dramatic effect of DMSA on the body's levels of glutathione. Glutathione is the body's most important anti-oxidant found in every cell. It's very powerful and effective but it's also easily depleted. When it becomes depleted you have less defense against the bad guys. A three day treatment of DMSA raised glutathione levels in children for 1-2 months duration.
Today it's even more important to think about getting garbage out of our system than what to put in. Heavy metals and other environmental toxins deplete glutathione and other antioxidant levels thus lowering the immune system. These toxins often have no metabolic pathway to be broken down and freely circulate through the blood stream or get stuffed into fat and joints. If you're chronically sick and cant' figure out why this could very well be the reason.
The Integrative Health Center offers lab testing for heavy metals and detoxification programs as part of the The 4R Program for good health.

What is not addressed is why there is GERD in the first place. Reflux can only occur due to a weak gastroesophageal sphincter. This is the muscle the closes off the stomach contents to the esophagus once food has entered. The gastroesophageal sphincter, like the whole body, is under control of the nervous system. If the nerve supply to the sphincter is impaired then the function of the sphincter will be impaired and acid can escape the stomach and go back up to the esophagus, triggering the release of inflammatory cytokines.
Chiropractic addresses this problem by going to the source, to the nerves that control the sphincters.

Yet another reason to educate yourself on what you're up against regarding environmental pollutants and what you can do about it. Today a detox program is essential for every person right from the womb.

Statins and blood pressure medications interfere with mitochondrial energy levels. This might explain the cause of muscle fatigue when taking these drugs.
Some drugs actually increase mitochondrial function and decrease toxic load. One of these compounds is found in Green Tea. That would explain why Green Tea has for a long time been anecdotally credited with normalizing blood sugar and increasing energy levels. Type 2 diabetes is associated with a decrease in mitochondrial genetic expression and may be helped by regularly drinking Green Tea.

According to the lead scientist on this study, “Diet and exercise are still the best approaches for weight reduction in the general population,” Tseng said. “However, for people who are genetically predisposed to obesity, these approaches may have very little effect.”
“As we learn more about the controls of brown fat development, medical interventions to increase energy expenditure by brown fat inducing agents, such as BMP-7, may provide hope to these individuals in losing weight and preventing the metabolic disorders associated with obesity,” she said.
"BOSTON – Aug. 20, 2008 – A study by researchers at the Joslin Diabetes Center has shown that a protein known for its role in inducing bone growth can also help promote the development of brown fat, a “good” fat that helps in the expenditure of energy and plays a role in fighting obesity."

Glutathione levels are often depressed in autism patients. They are elevated significantly with chelation therapy. This finding agrees with the Remove part of my FourR treatment protocol. By removing toxins the body is able to function normally.
