STATE OF THE ART: OPTIMIZING USE OF GLUTATHIONE TO TREAT CHRONIC CONDITIONS
Thursday, September 14: 4:30PM - 5:30PM
 
ABOUT THE LECTURE: 
In healthy states, glutathione (GSH) is made naturally in the body, however, a number of factors influence the formation of glutathione in acute and chronic disease. Studies showing the result of loss of GSH on immune function and the result of restoration of glutathione related to immune function will be reviewed. While most of us are aware of the enzyme defects in the methylation pathways that compromise the formation of the precursors needed for GSH formation, compromises in the enzymes needed to combine these precursors amino acids have also been identified. These defects are associated with a number of conditions ranging from autism to Alzheimer’s disease and include HIV, type 2 diabetes mellitus, autoimmune disease and mycotoxin-related illnesses. Studies illustrating the effect of these defects and their clinical associations will be reviewed.
 

Tim Guilford, MD
ABOUT DR. GUILFORD:
Dr. Tim Guilford has been using a combination of “mainstream” and “alternative” therapies since the mid-1980′s. The techniques include homeopathy, nutritional support and heavy metal detoxification strategies. While the approaches may differ from those currently considered “mainstream”, they are well founded in medical tradition and, where possible, documented in biochemistry. It is easiest to describe the combination of approaches he uses as “complementary” and offering a variety of approaches to many problems.
