From: Guy R. Schenker, D.C. September, 1997 Dear Doctor, Suppose I presented you with a ... MAGIC WAND. All you would need do is wave this magic wand at each of your patients and instantly three dramatic biochemical changes would occur in that patient: 1. Selective permeability of cellular membranes would be restored to normal in that patient. 2. Any pH imbalances in that patient's tissues would normalize instantly. 3. The systemic affects of abnormal oxidation reactions would be reversed. With such amazing powers you would eagerly and confidently take on any symptom or condition your patients could present. You will be delighted to learn that such a magic wand exists -- in the form of your NUTRI-SPEC supplements Oxygenic A-Plus and Oxygenic D-Plus. Your anaerobic and your dysaerobic patients are locked into an abnormal biochemical pattern involving aberrant oxidative energy metabolism and loss of the capacity for selective membrane permeability. Oxy A-Plus and D-Plus are the keys to release the lock that traps your patients in a state of metabolic inefficiency. Many of the symptoms associated with anaerobic and dysaerobic imbalances are associated with the abnormal pH found in these imbalances. - 2 - Rivici referred to many symptoms as "dualistic" in nature. By this he meant that both an anaerobic and a dysaerobic patient are susceptible to these symptoms. Furthermore, Rivici showed that these symptoms were directly related to the acid tissue and alkaline system of the anaerobic patient, or, to the alkaline tissue and acid system of the dysaerobic patient. Some of the more common dualistic symptoms we deal with every day are listed on the anaerobic/dysaerobic page of your Quick Reference Guide, and include pain, itching, vertigo, and allergies. There are other dualistic conditions such as hearing loss, manic depression, high serum cholesterol, and viral and bacterial infections. Think of your Oxy A and Oxy B as the key to unlock the sealed membrane. Once the lock is removed nutrients immediately begin flowing into the cell and waste products flow back out. Membrane polarity is restored and normal pH is restored both within and without the membrane. The normalization of pH often affords immediate symptomatic improvement in patients with dualistic symptoms. Oxygenic A-Plus is essential to all your anaerobic patients. In particular, you should give a dosage well above the standard dosage of Oxygenic A-Plus if your anaerobic patient suffers from any of the above mentioned dualistic symptoms, or, if they suffer from any of the other anaerobic conditions specifically listed on the anaerobic/dysaerobic page of your QRG -- constipation, polyuria, or somnolence. Likewise, your Oxygenic D-Plus is essential for all dysaerobic patients. The dosage you recommend should be increased if the dysaerobic individual suffers from any of the dualistic symptoms, or, if they have as a major complaint the dysaerobic symptoms listed in your QRG -- diarrhea, oliguria, or insomnia. Do you have any patients in pain? Do you have any patients with high cholesterol? How about patients who suffer from depression or anxiety or somnolence or insomnia? Do you have any patients with allergies? Almost all these patients have an anaerobic/dysaerobic imbalance underlying their condition. Allow Oxy A-Plus and D-Plus to work their magic and ... GIVE YOUR PATIENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO FULLY UTILIZE THE NUTRIENTS (DESCRIBED IN LAST MONTH'S LETTER) IN OXYGENIC A AND OXYGENIC D. - 3 - If you have any doubt about how amazingly quick is the action of A-Plus and D-Plus to reverse their respective imbalances ... DO YOUR OWN EXPERIMENT TO PROVE IT. The next time you have a patient who tests, say, strongly anaerobic with high surface tension, high urine pH, low adjusted saliva pH, and low specific gravity -- give the patient a good strong dose of Oxy A-Plus. Wait for 30 minutes, then re-check their urine and saliva. In 99+% of the cases the anaerobic test pattern will be completely reversed -- just that quickly, and just that simply. Rivici (from whose work your anaerobic/dysaerobic balance derives) tested literally thousands of biologically active substances for their metabolic effects. Out of all those substances, he selected the ingredients of your Oxygenic A-Plus and D-Plus to use for their powerful and immediate impact on body chemistry. He has used these exclusively for more than 35 years as his sole means of controlling metabolic balance at the tissue and systemic levels. These supplements truly are the clinical equivalent of a magic wand. Using them effectively according to your QRG protocol gives you an advantage in controlling each patient's body chemistry that you never even dreamed of before NUTRI-SPEC. COMPARE YOUR POWER TO THE IMPOTENCE OF THE TYPICAL CLINICAL NUTRITIONIST CHASING AFTER SYMPTOMS WITH HEALTH FOOD STORE REMEDIES. A couple of months ago when we were discussing the QRG protocol for electrolyte stress imbalance WE EXPLAINED HOW IMPORTANT OXY A-PLUS IS TO MANY OF YOUR ELECTROLYTE STRESS PATIENTS. We commented on how, in your patients with a strong anaerobic component to their electrolyte stress, Oxygenic A-Plus helps maintain the colloidal properties of the body fluids, helps maintain the proper electro-negativity of the arterial intima, helps the kidneys eliminate excess salts, and aids in lowering blood pressure. Now that we are discussing Oxy A-Plus in more detail we should amplify some of the comments made about the amazing power of Oxy A-Plus by relating to you an experiment done by Rivici. - 4 - Rivici's experiment demonstrated clearly the power of A-Plus in preventing and reversing the progression of cardiovascular disease. The experiment Rivici did on laboratory animals was done in three parts: Part One: Rivici fed mice a diet extremely high in saturated fat and cholesterol. (You know -- the diet that, according to the "authorities," is supposed to kill us all from cardiovascular disease.) All Rivici got out of this high fat and cholesterol feeding portion of the experiment was a lot of happy mice. He was unable to cause cardiovascular disease in his test animals. Part Two: Rivici then fed the mice the same high fat, high cholesterol diet, but also made their diet high in salt. Now, all the laboratory mice developed cardiovascular disease -- atherosclerosis and hypertension, etc -- very quickly. In other words, the high salt intake caused cardiovascular disease at levels of saturated fat and cholesterol intake which were harmless in the absence of excess sodium chloride. Do you see how this finding fits in perfectly with our electrolyte stress model of CVD? Part Three: Rivici then fed his test animals a diet high in saturated fat and cholesterol, plus high in salt, but also supplemented these animals with magnesium and negative valence sulfur (Oxygenic A-Plus). The result? Despite the high saturated fat and cholesterol intake combined with excess salt intake, these animals were completely protected from cardiovascular disease. In other words, the high salt intake had no deleterious effects when combined with the high fat intake, as long as the magnesium and -2 valence sulfur were available to neutralize the damage done by the sodium chloride. This story of Rivici's experiment should make it clear to you why Oxy A-Plus is so indispensable to a high percentage of your electrolyte stress patients. It should also now be clear how valuable Oxy A-Plus is in any of your patients with an anaerobic tendency. Oxy A-plus plays a preventive role as regards cardiovascular disease. Another way to say this is that any patient who tests anaerobic is certain, over a period of years, to develop cardiovascular disease which has a strong anaerobic component. Correcting your patient's anaerobic imbalance long before cardiovascular disease is clinically evident is an invaluable service. The patient will be delighted that you "cured my constipation," "gave me more energy than I've had in years," and, "got rid of the arthritis in my shoulder." Little do they realize that as valuable as these benefits are, their - 5 - value is far surpassed by the fact that you prevented what would have been the inevitable development of cardiovascular disease. Thanks to you, this patient will not be one of the fifty percent who dies from heart attack or stroke. Shift your focus now from Oxy A-Plus to Oxy D-Plus. Let us look at the relation of Oxy D-Plus to your patients with migraine headaches. We are talking here about true migraine headaches -- a vascular headache that is accompanied by visual prodromes and is usually typified by hemicephalgia, as well as perhaps GI symptoms. Occasionally a migraine patient will test as sympathetic. If they do, they will benefit from either Taurine or Oxygenic D-Plus. Occasionally a migraine patient will test as parasympathetic. If they do, they will benefit from Oxy D-Plus or Phos Drops. Occasionally a migraine patient will test as anaerobic. If they do, they will benefit from Taurine along with their Oxy A-Plus. By far the majority of migraine patients, however, will test as dysaerobic. These patients will almost always respond beautifully to Oxy D-Plus supplementation. There is a little trick you can do with migraine patients for whom Oxy D-Plus is indicated. If they do feel a migraine coming on (visual prodromes, etc.), then at this first inkling of a headache they should take 30 or 40 drops of Oxy D-Plus. If 20 minutes later the symptoms have not abated, then take another 40 drops of Oxy D-Plus. This supplementation will very often abort a migraine headache before it gets up and running. Do not misinterpret this to mean that Oxy D-Plus will relieve a migraine headache. Sometimes it will -- often it will not. The key here is not to use Oxy D-Plus once the headache is established but to abort it before it fully manifests. We should conclude our discussion of Oxy D-Plus with a comment about its unique fragrance and flavor. If you have much experience with NUTRI-SPEC you have likely found that it is not uncommon for dysaerobic patients to actually learn to like the taste of Oxy D-Plus (-- believe it or not!). For most, however, a taste for D-Plus is very difficult to acquire. I personally have never had a problem obtaining patient compliance on taking Oxy D-Plus. Apparently the same cannot be said for many other doctors. For years I have been hard-nosed, insisting that Oxy D-Plus be taken in water -- and if the patient doesn't like it, tough. I am hereby revising my previously rigid stance. Taking Oxy D-Plus is important - 6 - enough that if a person has to swallow a little juice with it to get it down, that is a small price to pay. I am now recommending that you continue to recommend your patients take Oxy D-Plus in water. But, if you have a patient who claims that is out of the question then permit them to take the D-Plus in a small amount of apple juice. Only patients who have a glucogenic or parasympathetic imbalance concurrent with their dysaerobic imbalance will be adversely affected -- and quantitatively speaking it should not be that big a problem to have three ounces of juice twice a day as long as the rest of their diet is by the book. With the unique combination of ingredients in Oxygenic A and Oxygenic D, and the ... ABRACADABRA ZAP ... you give your patients with Oxy A-Plus and Oxy D-Plus, there is no anaerobic/dysaerobic clinical challenge you cannot meet. Sincerely, Guy R. Schenker, D.C.
