Deuterium Depletion in Cancer Research

The physiological effects of deuterium (D), a naturally occurring stable isotope of hydrogen, were studied by biologist, Gábor Somlyai PhD, in the early 1990s at the National Institute of Oncology in Hungary. The first results of his research, which proved that deuterium has a pivotal role in cell regulation and tumour growth, were published in 1993.

Deuterium Depletion

Dr Somlyai found that the shortage of deuterium inhibits the growth of cancer cells in tissue culture and also in living organisms causing even the necrosis of the tumour. Replacement of normal daily water intake with deuterium-depleted water reduces the concentration of D in the body, and the method in combination with / and as an extension of conventional oncotherapies is highly beneficial for cancer patients, and may improve survival.

Patented deuterium depletion is a completely new approach in oncotherapy and prevention and deuterium depletion affects other physiological processes, including glucose metabolism. Findings of Dr Somlyai’s research have since been presented at prestigious international conferences and in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Over the past few years other researchers have also confirmed the significant effect of deuterium on physiological processes worldwide. 

Deuterium depletion is safe and innocuous for healthy cells; there were no adverse reactions or toxic side effects related to deuterium-depleted water during the 18-year-long history of DDW research and its 12-year-long application.  The application of deuterium-depleted veterinary anti-cancer drug, registered in 1999 (Vetera-DDW-25® A.U.V.) also verified an outstanding effectiveness of DDW-treatment.

Results of Clinical Investigations of Deuterium Depletion in Prostate Cancer
The research and the clinical studies performed in the past years have verified the anti-cancer effect of deuterium depletion. A human phase II, double blind controlled clinical study of the medicinal product was performed according to the authorization of the National Institute of Pharmacy. Improvement was observed in 31.8 % in the treated group and in 4.55 % in the control group. Within 1 year from the beginning of the clinical trial the death rate was significantly lower in the treated group, 9% died in the treated group, while 41% in the control group. Regarding urination problems: the problems stopped in 36% cases in the treated group, while no such cases occurred in the control group. . . .

Exstore MusculoSkeletal Assessment System

Learn a NEW assessment system which in 2 minutes -  reveals dysfunction in the pelvic and scapular girdles - responsible for neck, shoulder, mid-back, low-back, hip, and knee pain. This new assessment system called EXSTORE is based on actual research in scholarly journals.

Exstore MusculoSkeletal Assessment System

Nearly 30 years ago research in the Clinical Sciences Journal revealed that changes to the joint due to trauma or regular processes of ageing like osteoarthritis, will cause the muscles surrounding the joint to weaken. Then 10 years later the British Journal of Rheumatology reported that even mild arthritis could cause muscles around the joints to weaken without any signs of swelling or previous injury. Lastly, in 2012 the Clinical Journal of Pain said that the proper treatment of these inhibited muscles must be done if full injury recovery is expected.

The research allowed Dr Anthony Lombardi, private consultant to athletes in the NFL, CFL and NHL, and founder of EXSTORE & multidisciplinary clinic Hamilton Back Clinic, to formulate a system which allowed him to pinpoint inhibited muscles - within seconds. EXSTORE was created to better treat patients who were suffering from muscle injuries that simply did not respond to treatment after conventional orthopaedic testing. Since then, it has been cited in current textbooks to accurately assess injuries without the need to perform countless orthopaedic tests. It is also being used by professional football players in the NFL:

"I think the EXSTORE Assessment System was great for playing a long football season in the NFL.  EXSTORE helped me figure out what muscles were not firing correctly before my any serious injuries happened. It kept my hips and glutes firing all season which for me is key to staying healthy. This system is key to keeping athletes on the field through out an athletes career." -Garrett McIntyre, NFL's New York Jets

Dr. Lombardi uses EXSTORE and attracts over 600 new patients each year!

• EXSTORE®  allows you to see more patients throughout the day while achieving outstanding clinical results.

• EXSTORE®  gets your patients feeling better faster because your are correcting the root of the dysfunction which translates into more referrals!

The key to understanding rehabilitation is prior to doing exercises to make the joint stronger - you must identify which muscles are inhibited and no longer working for your patient. Once discovered, treatments like acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, and physiotherapy can help you reach your goal of strong, pain-free movements.

The Anatomy of Sports Injuries: Second Edition

by Brad Walker

Published by Lotus Publishing. 2012. Softback. £16.99. ISBN 978 1 905367 38 2.

Originally released in 2007 by acclaimed health and fitness publishers Lotus Publishing, The Anatomy of Sports Injuries has remained one of the most popular sports injuries texts; so much so that a second edition is now set for release featuring 25 per cent more anatomy text and drawings and new colour illustrations of the rehabilitation exercises.

Anatomy of Sports Injuries 2nd Edition Cover

Author Brad Walker brings years of expertise to the book - he works with elite-level and world-champion athletes, and lectures on injury prevention. Taking a fundamental approach, Walker brings the reader inside the body to show exactly what is happening when a sports injury occurs. Over 300 full-colour anatomical illustrations show a range of specific sports injuries in detail, along with over 100 colour drawings of simple stretching, strengthening, and rehabilitation exercises that the reader can use to speed up the recovery process.

The Anatomy of Sports Injuries is a must-have for any student of sport who needs a depth of anatomical information, or for any sports player or fitness enthusiast who has been injured and would like to know what the injury involves, how to rehabilitate the area, and how to prevent complications or injury in the future. Walker explains his motivation for producing the book: “Everyone who plays sports experiences injuries. Many people never fully recover because they are not aware of what they can do to facilitate recovery. But there is no need to simply resign yourself to ‘living with’ a sports injury - this book is here to help.”

    Low Fat Diet Key to Slimming

    Cutting down on fat without dieting will result in a slimmer figure according to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA). Findings published in the British Medical Journal show that exchanging fatty foods for lower fat alternatives will help people shift around three and a half pounds, without dieting. People taking part in trials also saw their waistlines become slimmer and levels of bad cholesterol decrease. The report was commissioned by the World Health Organisation (WHO), Nutrition Guidance Expert Advisory Group (NUGAG) Subgroup on Diet and Health following a request to update their guidelines on total fat intake.

    Help Stop Snoring with SnoreMate

    A BBC two-part documentary called Goodnight Britain looked into the lives of five unfortunate Brits who live with sleeping disorders.

    Help with Diabetes

    In clinical studies, cinnamon bark extract exhibited properties proven to be extremely similar to that of insulin. Cinnamon extract can help prevent insulin resistance, thereby regulating your blood sugar levels. Fenugreek extract, known as Methi Seeds seems to slow down sugar absorption while stimulating insulin production which helps in lowering sugar levels. Clinicians at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center suggest that one active ingredient in olive leaf extract, oleuropeoside increases insulin release in response to elevated blood glucose levels as well as helping to increase glucose absorption into the body’s cells. Diabain has launched a brand new range of supplement specifically designed for Type 2 diabetics with these ingredients included, as well as essential vitamin and minerals. The range consists of two supplements called Vittol and Inusol.
