Glutathione is the "Mother of all antioxidants" and what I call the"janitor of the body. It is not found in foods and it is not well absorbed orally, therefore it is also not very effective in a supplement. Boosting its production and increasing levels will dramatically decrease risk of disease and vulnerability to toxins. Glutathione is found all over the body but is in highest concentrations in the lungs and liver.
Free radicals in the body cause oxidative stress which leads to functional impairment, and is associated with aging. The accumulation of free radicals is one root cause to a vast number of diseases. In addition to glutathione directly scavenging for free radicals, it also reactivate other antioxidants. It plays a crucial roles in the immune response, DNA repair, and the detoxification process: neutralizing drugs, chemicals, radiation, metabolic wastes, and other toxins and carcinogens.
Given the wide range of activities, it makes sense that glutathione depletion is associated with disease and aging. If you think about the toxins in our world that we are exposed to, we are using up what we have and our need is greatly increasing. Boosting levels in our body is not only a beneficial for health maintenance but also is an immensely effective therapy for a host of serious diseases.
Glutathione is poorly absorbed orally, however, supplying the body with the materials/parts/precursors required for glutathione production in the diet is important. To effectively increase systemic concentration in the body is through intramuscular injection, intravenous therapy (some conditions benefit or required more intensive doses) and nebulizer (inhaled), which bypasses the digestive tract and delivering it to target tissues.
It has shown to be successful in protocals treating patients recovering from strokes, hepatitis, neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, as well as most other other chronic illness, from fatigue to Lyme. (conditions associated with dramatic increases in oxidative stress and depletion of glutathione) Maximizing glutathione status is also a proven treatment for chronic fatigue, autoimmune disorders, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, environmental sensitivities, autism, cataracts and glaucoma, treating or preventing alcoholism, asthma, cancer, heart disease (atherosclerosis and high cholesterol), hepatitis, liver disease, diseases that weaken the body’s defense system (including AIDS and chronic fatigue syndrome), memory loss, anemia (including from dialysis), Alzheimer’s disease, osteoarthritis, and Parkinson’s disease, preventing toxic side effects of chemotherapy and more.
Disease aside, it’s a ticket to better health and longevity!
IS YOUR RESPIRATORY TRACT AFFECTED BY THE FIRES AND SMOKE???
Inhaled glutathione by using a nebulizer can be used in treatments for emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, asthma and other lung diseases. This major “antioxidant” and cellular protector is found throughout the body and in highest concentrations in the liver and lining of the respiratory tract and nasal cavities. Inflammation, lung irritation (such as from smoke inhalation), and toxic exposures will significantly reduce glutathione levels because the body is using it to “mop-up” harmful chemicals. Aerosol glutathione application is vital to provide direct and localized concentrations of glutathione to the lungs and sinuses.
Inhaled glutathione has been used in treating MANY conditions of the respiratory tract. Living in a world filled with toxic fumes & smoke, especially ours right now, (cigarette smokers too), aerosol treatment should be used to decrease potential damage and help the repair process.
If you are experiencing cough, difficulty breathing, wheezing / worsening asthma, there are multiple options for treatment protocols that will differ depending on the individual, please (do not wait!), come in to have a treatment protocol catered to your needs, possibly combining, respiratory support tinctures, IV therapy, supplementation, glutathione treatments, and other possible cleansing and/or detoxification programs.
Nebulizer glutathione treatments usually take about 10 minutes in the office ($25 per treatment) and multiple treatments will be needed. Purchasing a nebulizer and glutathione is an option for at home treatments.
