Detoxification and the 5R’s of Cellular Healing
The 5R’s of True Cellular Healing and Detox
“Back to the Basics: The 5R’s of True Cellular Detox and HealingTM.,” Dr. Dan Pompa, D.PSc. April 15, 2014
More and more people seem to be facing health challenges that are inexplicable and debilitating. They go from doctor to doctor searching for answers, only to be handed a prescription for medication, or told nothing is amiss. This situation is unfortunately the all too common experience of people suffering from chronic diseases such as thyroid disorders, autoimmune diseases such as Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis and Celiac Disease, and unexplained pain. Medication is prescribed and tried, perhaps it works for a while then stops, or perhaps the medications never have any affect on the disease. What is going wrong? Having seen and faced a personal health crisis, I realized (after years of research and practice) that the only way out of the maze of new millennium diseases is a comprehensive protocol I learned called the 5R’s of True Cellular Detoxification and Healing. Having found the philosophy to be the best solution to treating chronic disease, it became the focus of my practice. I teach my patients the critical importance of understanding the root cause of illness, not just addressing the symptoms. We must recognize what is going wrong at the cellular level and become educated why we are failing to achieve healing. If the cell isn’t addressed, a person will not get well. The following five fundamental steps are not a quick-fix for fast results, but rather a road map for long-term healing of health challenges. The interrelated steps are not applied in any particular order, and are often addressed simultaneously depending on the case. The goal in sharing this life changing information is not to address a specific condition, but to support the body’s ability to heal itself. The 5R’s is a revolutionary and proven strategy which has helped thousands finally recover their health.
R1: Remove the Source
The protocol begins by determining which toxic sources are causing body-wide damage and removing them as soon as possible. If the sources of toxicity are not removed, there will never be a lasting solution to a health challenge. For example, in many patient’s histories, I found silver amalgam fillings, many of which were drilled out incorrectly. After the fillings had been removed and replaced with gold or other metals, some patients became very ill. It took some time before I began to understand the cause of their illnesses. After extensive research, I discovered that these fillings contained 50% mercury, which vaporizes and crosses into the brain where it bio-accumulates over time. The addition of gold or metals can cause a reaction, leaching mercury out of the fillings 10 times faster than normal. Only once I learned how fillings should be properly removed, followed by removing the mercury, did people get their lives back. They would have never fully recovered without removing the source of toxicity, in this case the fillings in their mouth. Another common source of toxicity is mold, which produces bio-toxins deadly to humans and shuts down the liver’s ability to detox. Conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and weight-loss resistance are all linked to bio-toxic illness from mold, and the true cause often goes undiagnosed for years. The bottom line: the body cannot even begin to heal itself until the source of illness is removed. Once external toxins have been eliminated, internal toxins that have bio-accumulated over time must be removed as well. Most commercially available cleanses and detox diets fail to remove toxins at the cellular level. To support the detoxification process, we have developed a Cellular Detoxification system and protocol. This system is custom designed for you and raises the production of glutathione, the most body’s most powerful antioxidant critical for cellular health. It contains a super-activated pharmaceutical grade carbon that literally binds to toxins in the gut and removes them from the body to prevent reabsorption and redistribution. Reabsorption and redistribution are common issues in other forms of detox and detox diets that can produce dangerous symptoms. A global search was undertaken to find the purest ingredients for our formulas, which has been tested using the most rigorous quality control standards. This system has transformed my understanding of detoxification, the cutting-edge technology changed my life, and has helped thousands suffering from inexplicable illnesses to find relief. Simply put, the combination works, and it’s included in many of my patient protocols.
R2: Regenerate the Cell Membrane
Following my own return to health, I learned the importance of regenerating the cellular membrane. The membrane plays a major role in detox, is active in turning genes on and off (epigenetics), regulates hormones, and is truly where healing begins. The membrane acts as the inroads to a city that lets in what is needed for the city to function and survive. If the inroads are shut down, the city will eventually deteriorate. In healthy individuals, the supple lipid bi-layer of the membrane allows nutrients to flow inside easily, and toxins and free radicals to leave unimpeded. If inflamed, as in far too many people, little can come in and out, so the cell becomes a toxic wasteland and illness results. The membrane must be regenerated for detoxification to occur and elicit body-wide healing. Through addressing neurotoxicity using dietary changes, proper detoxification, and treating nerve stress, membrane regeneration occurs and health can eventually be recovered. Since the membrane is made of fat, a key to its regeneration is consuming natural fat, specifically fats containing cholesterol and saturated fat such as full-fat dairy, grass-fed animal protein, and healthy oils like virgin coconut oil. In addition, we use extraordinary products that specifically targets the membrane, and contain the correct amount of good fats to down-regulate inflammation and promote proper cellular function. The fats work to support the outer and inner membranes, mitochondrial function, and influence learning, sleep, thermoregulation and pain threshold. To further boost membrane regeneration, the Cellular Healing Diet of natural fats and nutrients needed to fix the cell.
R3: Restore Cellular Energy
When people are sick, they have very little cellular energy, and can’t heal. Cellular energy affects how a person feels. I was once chronically fatigued so restoring cellular energy was the most vital task initially. Cellular energy is the fuel of the cell, and nothing runs or functions without it. As nutrients flow into the cell, they feed the powerhouses called mitochondria, which produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is often called the “molecular unit of currency of intracellular energy transfer.” Without adequate production of ATP, cells are unable to detoxify or regenerate properly. Individuals with ATP deficiencies have become somewhat of an epidemic in America and suffer from symptoms like fatigue, brain fog, digestive problems, and hormone conditions. Many patients come to me feeling stuck and puzzled by the lack of results from following a “healthy” diet, exercising, and “doing everything right.” However, once cellular energy is restored, patients frequently observe a noticeable shift in their health, and other efforts to get well begin to take effect. Without raising ATP in the cell, symptoms or conditions can not be impacted, and other attempts to heal will be rendered useless. Raising ATP is a crucial first step with many of my patients, especially those who are chronically ill, and played a significant role in my own path to recovery. We have products which work by helping the body to produce more mitochondria and thereby increase cellular energy and longevity. Before they were developed, I often had to recommend three or four different products in an attempt to raise ATP because the technology of mitochondrial biogenesis (the process of creating new mitochondria) didn’t yet exist. These products are not to be confused with an energy product that stimulates the body like a cup of coffee. It takes time to build lasting energy that the cells can use to function properly. However, many people who take our products, say they notice a positive difference in energy right away, likely due to the down-regulation of inflammation, wherein ATP plays a significant role.
R4: Reduce Cellular Inflammation
Even after removing my toxic load (R1), I remained plagued by bizarre symptoms that seemed to appear out of nowhere. I would feel good for months then revisit symptoms experienced in the worst times. At one point I recognized these episodes were not random, and followed exposures to certain chemicals. I was suffering from multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) triggered by systemic cellular inflammation. Cellular inflammation is the root cause driving the epidemic of chronic diseases and hormone conditions rampant today. Inflammation affects the way cells communicate, detox, and express good or bad genes, which can lead to diseases of genetic weakness, such as MCS.
Over time, I was able to isolate and remove the triggers causing the unusual feelings and symptoms. By removing sources of toxicity and taking certain nutrients and antioxidants, I finally stopped the vicious cycle of inflammation and recovered my health. Common sources of cellular inflammation include dietary sugar and grains (even whole grains), bad fats (especially vegetable oils), toxins from mercury fillings, and home and body products. Living in a toxic world, it’s no wonder so many are sick, but few recognize inflammation lies at the source. Understanding how inflammation affects the cell and the way to down-regulate it is essential to heal most any condition. Unfortunately, most health practitioners are not keeping up with the exciting new research in the area of inflammation, detox or gene expression, which would dramatically change their patients’ results. To decrease inflammation, sources of toxicity need to be removed and blood sugar must be controlled. To further halt the vicious cycle of inflammation and encourage detox, a personalized regimen of supplements may be taken. Many are potent antioxidants that improve the cells ability to make glutathione, and superoxide dismutase to respond to oxidative stress and free radical damage.
R5: Re-establish Methylation
The final component of The 5R’s can be understood through my wife Debbie’s story of healing through re-establishing methylation. Methylation is a biochemical process that affects many essential body functions including DNA repair, detoxification, fighting infections, removing environmental toxins such as lead and estrogen, and more. The body needs methylation to turn stress hormones on and off, and when unable to methylate, remains in a state of constant stress. Methylation can also turn good genes on and bad genes off, and thus regulates whether a genetic weakness (possibly disease) is expressed. In Debbie’s case, the lack of proper methylation due to lead toxicity caused many metabolic imbalances to arise. Once learning the vital role methylation plays in hormone health, I applied the knowledge in treating Debbie’s condition. I focused on re-establishing proper methylation in her system and her symptoms eventually resolved. The lesson intensified and reinforced my passion to transform lives and the mission to share the message of the true cause of disease. Methyl groups are a component of a product I use with most every patient, that helps to repair the body’s methylation process. We use the most complete methylation product available for treating methyl depletion and is critical for nutritional support of intracellular healing. It also contains certain active forms of methyl donors that are utilized directly in the cell without being converted to another form, important because many people genetically do not have the enzymes to make the conversion and are therefore predisposed to methyl depletion. Methyl depletion goes far beyond the body’s inability to detox, and creates a host of unexplainable symptoms and diseases. Stress (whether chemical, physical, or emotional) and a toxic world have left nearly everyone methyl depleted. Therefore, our products and protocols are essential support for healing modern disease. My journey back to health led to knowledge I share with others who are suffering without answers. The 5R’s of True Cellular Detoxification and Healing are a road map to healing and a system to follow. The protocol touches all aspects of treating unresponsive conditions and should be at the core of every healthcare practice because it addresses the fundamental reasons people are so sick today. I pray that readers learn from my family’s personal battles and take action before it’s too late. The 5R’s provide key solutions to many “unexplainable” modern illnesses by encouraging the body to heal itself as God intended. Take action, and remember: fix the cell, and get well!
