Glutathione, Parkinson’s Disease, Autism, ADD
In this video, Tim Guilford spends about 27 minutes speaking on "Glutathione, Parkinson’s Disease, Autism, ADD" at the 33rd Annual Cancer Convention held on Labor Day weekend by the Cancer Control Society.
About Tim Guilford
TIM GUILFORD, M.D. received his Medical Degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. He trained in surgery for 2 years at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland and completed his training at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is Board Certified in Ear, Nose and Throat, Head and Neck Surgery. In Clinical Practice since 1981, Dr. Guilford was also Director of Biological Information System Clinical Laboratory specializing in Allergy and Immunology testing until 1993. His areas of medical interest include the treatment of allergies and chronic illnesses. He uses Homeopathy and nutrient support for chronic illnesses. Over the last 10 years Dr. Guilford has focused on the role of toxic metals in chronic illness, and this has lead him to become an expert in the role that glutathione plays in chronic illnesses. Glutathione decreases with age and chronic illnesses, and plays a key role in several systems that are critical for the maintenance of health. Low glutathione levels are associated with chronic inflammation, which prevents efficient immune function, and diminishes the ability to remove toxins. Recent research shows that glutathione is deficient in children with autism, as well as in cystic fibrosis and adults with Parkinson's disease. Toxins such as metals can disrupt a cycle critical to the production of glutathione. While there are reports of benefit with intravenous glutathione, until now there has not been a good way to get glutathione into the system orally. Dr. Guilford's interest in glutathione has lead to the formation of a liposomal glutathione product called ReadiSorb™ Glutathione. More information is available at www.Readisorb.com. Dr. Guilford can be contacted for consulations through his office in Los Altos, California by phone 650-323.3238.
Jim Gilford, thank you very much. Thank you.
It's a pleasure to be here. Thanks for getting up.
People ask me how I found my way to to tie on.
And it's let me tell you, it was a long, kind of tortuous trail. I started out in surgery and I had an opportunity to run a clinical laboratory. And that kind of put me into the position of learning about the biochemistry and immunology. The laboratory specialized in allergy testing and viral immune testing.
And there always seemed to be a little piece of the puzzle missing. And as I went along, I got interested in toxic metals. And you'll see a little bit of that in a minute. And the trail led me finally to glue thigh on about 10 years ago. So I'm going to share with you some of the information that I've learned about Cluedo. I own the story actually starts back quite a ways when ourselves began to develop in the early environment. At that time, our cells were exposed to nothing but a CO2 environment. They use sunlight for their energy function through chlorophyl and that sort of thing. And it's a byproduct of that metabolism. They started producing oxygen, which to the early cells was the waste product. And this created a.
Situation that eventually became what's known as the great oxygen crisis. I guess every age has its crisis and two billion to one and a half billion years ago.
It was a development of excess amounts of oxygen. And so ourselves didn't have a way to handle that. The oxygen is considered a toxin. And so they struck one of the longest deals on record with a another organism called the mitochondria.
Mitochondria, very similar to a bacteria organism, has its own DNA and they begin to share a lot of close relationship. Let's say the mitochondria would take electrons and make energy, the ATP that we use to make energy by moving the electrons down what's called this electron complex transport chain. And then they'd end up with an electron whose energy had been used up. And what are you gonna do with that? Well, the mitochondria had a great answer and it would take the spent electrons, if you will, these ones that had given up their energy to produce the energy we use and hook them up with oxygen to form water and CO2. So we had a very nice situation there, except for the fact that along the way, one to five percent of the electrons that were in this chain of energy production were kind of lost. This happens especially at the end of this
