PK Protocol

Postby Boomerang » Sun 4 Nov 2007 2:34

Just curious what any of you think of the PK Protocol to help with removal of neurotoxins? Hubby has been on antibiotics for nearly two years.....and has had a lot of die off. Still has neuro/lyme brain problems though.

Have any of you tried the PK Protocol or know much about it?

Thanks!

This is all I know about it, from google.


INTRAVENOUS PK PROTOCOL

LIPID EXCHANGE UTILIZING PHOSPHATIDYLCHOLINE

Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is one of the most groundbreaking therapies now available which was originated by Patricia Kane, Ph.D. PC supports positive outcomes of patients with states of toxicity and neurological disorders.
LEUCOVORIN RX

Leucovorin Rx is a B vitamin, Folinic acid, which supports the body processes of detoxification per methylation and helps to stabilize phospholipids in the cell membrane.
GLUTATHIONE

Glutathione is a naturally occurring tripeptide synthesized within the body which safely and effectively supports the detoxification of heavy metals and chemicals

Is an llmd rx'ing this for your husband?
Didn't this have a flurry of interest a while back?

*************************************************

OUR THERAPY

In 2002 we had a clinical breakthrough when we began using increased doses of essential fatty acids and phosphatidylcholine orally and intravenously. Patients with Parkinson's Disease, Autism and Schizophrenia had a profound improvement in their symptoms.

In the fall of 2003 we had an ALS patient in a wheelchair who walked on the third day of our intravenous therapy with phospholipids and glutathione. We have since had patients with many different kinds of neurological disorders who have responded to our therapy. The PK IV Protocol TM and Detoxx TM Systems were developed by Dr. Patricia Kane, Ph.D. for health care professionals to have safe and efficient detoxification methods via targeted supplementation and intravenous therapy.

By supporting membrane phospholipids, methylation and sulfation which are crucial for positive patient outcomes in toxicity states both cleansing and nourishing of the tissues occurs at the same time.

Our approach to detoxification is from the cell membrane prospective, with respect to essential fatty acid metabolism and establishing cell membrane phospholipid stability. Thus the health of the cell,the body and brain are stabilized.

The PK IV and oral protocols have been clinically effective in reaching the systemic nature of neurotoxic and toxic syndromes such as heavy metal burdens, microbial infections, toxic mold exposure, chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme, Fibromyalgia, MS, IBS, Autism, Developmental Delay, Depression, ALS, Stroke, Environmental illness, mood disorders, Hypercoagulation, Parkinson's, Cardiovascular Disease Hepatitis C and Longevity.

Lecithin/Phosphatidyl Choline

Also indexed as: Choline

When medical researchers use the term “lecithin,” they are referring to a purified substance called phosphatidyl choline (PC) that belongs to a special category of fat-soluble substances called phospholipids.
Where is it found?

Choline, the major constituent of PC, is found in soybeans, liver, oatmeal, cabbage, and cauliflower. Soybeans, egg yolks, meat, and some vegetables contain PC.

Lecithin (containing 10–20% PC) is added to many processed foods in small amounts for the purpose of maintaining texture consistency.

Phosphatidyl choline has been used in connection with the following conditions (refer to the individual health concern for complete information):

2 Stars

High homocysteine

Liver cirrhosis

Neural tube defects (prevention)

Tardive dyskinesia

*****************************
1 Star

Alzheimer’s disease

Bipolar disorder

Gallbladder attacks

Hepatitis

High cholesterol

******************


3 Stars= Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.

2 Stars =Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.

1 Star = For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support and/or minimal health benefit.

**************************
Who is likely to be deficient?

Although choline deficiencies have been artificially induced in people, little is known about human deficiency in the real world.
How much is usually taken?

Small amounts of choline are present in many B-complex and multivitamin supplements.
Are there any side effects or interactions?

With several grams of choline per day, some people will experience abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, or nausea. Supplementing choline in large amounts (over 1,000 mg per day) can lead to a fishy body odor. PC does not have this effect. Depression has been reported as a side effect in people taking large amounts of choline, such as 9 grams per day.

The body uses both PC and pantothenic acid to form acetylcholine.

At the time of writing, there were no well-known drug interactions with Lecithin/Phosphatidylcholine/Choline.
