Immune Building

The purpose of this study was to test the immune effects of d-Lenolate® in healthy volunteers at the Department of Cytogenetics and Immunology of NICS. This study examines the effect of 21 days of d-Lenolate® treatment on the immune parameters of healthy volunteers.

Study: The effect of d-Lenolate® on the Immune Parameters in Humans

Findings: d-Lenolate® showed a potential immune building response along with the ability to fight off weak, solid, and strong bacterial stimuli.

 

Herpes Simplex I

East Park Research, in a coordinated effort with one of the foremost research Universities in the world, has been testing its Topical for the past two years on various skin conditions to determine its efficacy in a scientific clinical environment.

Study: d-Lenolate®, Aloe, and Neem Tissue Culture Experiments

Findings: It was shown at the conclusion of this first phase of testing that Oleuropein has a direct improving effect on cold sores, also known as Type I Herpes. It was shown to assist in the healing of human tissue where Herpes symptoms are present.

The findings, using tissue cultures and Herpes Simplex Type I, were so positive in fact that East Park Research was encouraged to develop a safe and effective cream product for cold sores associated with Herpes Simplex I (HSV1), DELEVE. One of the most important findings was the proper concentration of each ingredient to make the most effective anti-viral solution. The inhibition of spreading is one of the very exciting properties of this final formulation.

 

Safety Testing

The cold sore formulation containing d-Lenolate® was evaluated for its safety in animals. There were no toxic effects observed.

Study: LSU Safety Report

Findings: The treated skin remained clear of inflammation and redness and all animals appeared normal throughout the duration of the study. 

 

In Vitro HSV-1 Testing

d-Lenolate® was evaluated as an antiviral for effectiveness in treating herpes infections.

Study: In Vitro Anti-HSV-1 Activities of d-Lenolate® at Different Concentrations

Findings: Treatment of mice infected with virulent human strain of herpes simplex virus type-I (HSV-1) with formulation containing a higher concentration of d-Lenolate® and other compounds resulted in highly significant protection of mice against all disease outcomes including substantial decrease in animals with herpes symptoms.

 

B. Anthracis

Dr. Sergui Popov of George Mason University, a globally acknowledged expert on the study of anthrax performed a study in 2006. His protocol focuses a direct application of d-Lenolate®, to test its ‘antibiotic” properties directly on the spores.

Study: Anti-B Anthracis Activities of Olive Leaf Extract: In Vitro Study

 

Influenza & Extra Cellular Bacterial Infection

Two “animal” studies, performed by a very prominent Japanese research organization, focuses on the effects of d-Lenolate® on the body’s immune system and how the enhanced immune system then eradicates some of the world’s most deadly viruses and bacteria.

Studies: Enhanced Resistance against Influenza Virus by Treatment with Dietary supplement d-Lenolate® in Neutropenic Mice Induced by Cyclophosphamide 

Findings: d-Lenolate® appears to be a successful treatment for influenza and extra cellular bacterial infection. It is particularly useful as preventative treatment prior to exposure and as a treatment to enhance healing in exposed and immunocompromised mice.

 

Microbial Infections (E.coli, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Yeast)

d-Lenolate®, was evaluated as a protective agent against two bacterial species in mice: E.coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa; and the yeast, Candida albicans.

Study: Therapeutic Effect of d-Lenolate® Against Experimental Infections in Immuno-compromised Mice

Findings: d-Lenolate® enhanced the restoration of white blood cells to the normal level and protected against infection with bacteria and yeast. In this study, d-Lenolate® restored PMN levels in immunocompromised mice and also enhanced clearance of E.coli from blood, both restorative effects after infection with bacteria. These two factors make d-Lenolate® a powerful protectant from infection as well as an enhancer to recovery post infection.  d-Lenolate® was able to restore immune function after treatment with all of these agents.

In this study conducted by the Japanese scientists, d-Lenolate® was able to restore antibody production after chemotherapy. Therefore, d-Lenolate® functions in the early stages of infection by enhancing PMN number and function antibody production capability of B cells. All of these d-Lenolate®-induced functions make the efficacy of cellular mechanisms in late stage influenza virus infection more successful when the immune system is depressed and at least equivalent to healthy mice responses.

 

Antimicrobial Activities of d-Lenolate®

Resistance to antimicrobials increases the fatality rate of infections, and the prolonged disease state allows greater chance for pathogenic organism to spread across the population.

Study: Antimicrobial Activity of d-Lenolate®

Findings: Recent research at University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) has revealed that d-Lenolate® demonstrates effective direct anti-microbial activity against representatives of both Gram positive and Gram negative bacterial. Expanded research also showed that d-Lenolate® is effective in inhibiting growth of several hospital-based pathogens.

 

Candida Albicans

In January of 1999, Dr. Bernard J. Mizock evaluated the efficacy of d-Lenolate®, to determine its effectiveness in reducing the burden of Candida Albicans, a single cell fungi living in the blood that confuses inter-cell communication and is the underlining cause of many ill-health problems according to the CDC.

Study: Evaluation of the Efficacy of d-Lenolate® in the Control of Symptoms of Candida Hypersensitivity Syndrome

Findings: Nystatin is the drug of choice and in a 32 week study did 2% better than placebo while d-Lenolate® reduced the symptoms by greater than 50% in 60 days with no apparent side effects. East Park believes that with the appropriated testing, d-Lenolate® will be proven to be a powerful treatment for many common ailments.

 

Arthritis

d-Lenolate® was used by Dr. Mizock in a second study to record the modifications of symptoms related to arthritic symptoms. Using the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis (WOMAC) index, scores were obtained during the period of September 2000 to January 2001 at baseline, 20, 40 and 60 days. 

Study: Effects of d-Lenolate® in Modifying Symptoms of Arthritis

Findings: Dr. Mizock concluded that East Park’s d-Lenolate® improves the symptoms of arthritis.  The effects were first noted at 20 days, and reach a maximum effect of 32% improvement at 40 days.

 

Psoriasis, Crohn’s Disease, Candida

In 2002, the Chief of Medicine at Budapest General Hospital noted that his experience with fighting infection by prescribing d-Lenolate® had reach a success rate of 90 percent and had been using d-Lenolate® before resorting to any antibiotics.

 

HIV Virus

Two in-vitro tests were performed in 2007 by a group of prominent biochemists associated with some of the most prominent research institutions in the world, including NYU School of medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Harvard Medical School. These tests focused on the use of Oleuropein as an inhibitor of the HIV virus. One of these tests was executed under a grant by the National Institute of Health.

Findings: Both of studies concluded that Oleuropein is an effective inhibitor of the HIV virus and that under certain conditions a “complete inhibition” occurred.

 

West Nile Virus

Upon the West Nile Virus epidemic in the United States, a study was conducted to determine the in-vitro anti-West Nile Virus (WNV) activities of d-Lenolate at different concentrations.

Study: Effects of d-Lenolate® in combating the West Nile Virus

Findings: The d-Lenolate filtrate demonstrated anti-WNV activity at higher concentrations. The effect decreased with increasing dilutions.

History of the Relax Sauna - Harnessing the Power of a Hot Spring

relax sauna

Harnessing the power of a natural hot springs



 

The Relax Sauna is made in Taiwan.  The Electrical company that makes the Relax Sauna was commissioned by the Japanese government about 30 years ago  (about 1980 – 1985) to try to create an energy that was similar to the Hot Springs in Southern Japan, where the warriors in ancient days would go after battle to heal.  The hot springs had a particular energy that was very healing.   We have since learned that somehow Far infrared energy is generated by the rocks near the springs.   Taiwan is the world leader in producing semi-conductor chips, and as it turns out, approximately 94% of the world’s semi-conductor chips that are made, are made in Taiwan.   

It was quite a challenge, to somehow transform electricity so that the energy generated by the created device would generate this “hot springs” kind of energy. 

It took Dr. Chang, and his team of scientists 10 years to perfect a way to – find a device that would transform electricity into that particular kind of energy that would have the healing effect that the hot springs in Southern Japan had.   They found a way to create what is called a semi-conductor chip which is made out of ceramic chip, has holes in it, has heat components in it, and has far infrared materials embedded in the chip.  The reason for the holes is that the chips get very very very hot, and in order to keep the temperature down, the holes were essential.   If it were not for the fans that blow the heat off of the semiconductor chips, the radiator would get too hot, and like a computer, whose fan goes out, the radiator would shut down.   Here is a picture of the 3 components that make up the Relax Semi-conductor chip: 
 
far infrared sauna components
 


 

​The purpose of the semi-conductor chip is to filter out the non-healing energies.   We have an excellent video, made in Taiwan, over 15 years ago that explains a little bit about the technology. 
 
sauna intro video














By watching the video over and over again, one can start to understand what the Relax Sauna energy is able to do.   The Industrial Technological Research Institute of Taiwan (semi-conductor experts) was able to test and prove that the Relax Energy generated by the semi-conductor chips was able to be very easily absorbed by the body.    

The semi-conductor chip has an automatic temperature control mechanism which can slow down or speed up the electric current in order to keep the temperature at a safe level at all times.  
 
ceramic far infrared emitting chips
 
So as you can see, it is the patented far infrared generators that only the Relax Sauna has which makes it unique among all infrared saunas. 
Try it out out and you will immediately notice the difference like many people have in our many testimonial videos.

    Far Infrared and the relation to Qi Gong

    The Chinese have been using Qi Gong therapy for 3000 years. Now proven by scientific research, the energy emitted by Qi Gong contains far infrared from 8 to 50 microns. Qi Gong therapist's hands touch the body parts of the patients which is similar to far infrared therapy. Qi Gong therapist's hands touch the body parts of the patients which is similar to far infrared therapy.

    What is far infrared?

    We will start with the sun. Sunlight can be divided into visible and invisible light. Visible light upon being refracted will refract into the colors of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, Indigo and violet. Beyond the color red is invisible light of wavelengths 0.76 - 1000 microns, known as far infrared.

    Waves between 4 - 400 microns are known as far infrared. 90% of the wavelength between 8 - 14 microns is known as Light of Life by scientists, because the light within this wavelength helps both plants and animals to grow. The human body is made up of water, protein and other nutrients such as calcium, Iron, sodium and other elements. Far infrared from wavelengths of 5 - 30 microns is able to produce energy. According to theories of physics, the human body is able to absorb far infrared of wavelengths 5 - 30 microns. This type of far infrared is able to increase human energy and create warmth in the body, thus producing resonance with the body and providing healing power, especially with wavelengths of 6 -14 microns. It is essential for growth of humans and all beings. Now, it has been recognized by biologists and societies of human engineers.

    1. What is the benefit FIR to the human body?

    It activates water molecules and increases body oxygenation. The human body contains approximately 70% water. The water content in blood is even higher at the ratio of 80%. If blood does not contain enough oxygen, water molecules in blood will contain 4 hydrogen molecules and 1 oxygen molecule turning it into “Lazy Water.” It will not be able to pass through cells.

    Far infrared is able to create resonance with the water molecule causing it to become a 2-hydrogen and 1-oxygen molecule. That will turn it into a normal water molecule. This will increase the oxygenation of the body, activate body cells, enhance mental fitness, enhance the immune system and slow down the aging process.


    2. Improve circulation.

    Water molecules are able to move freely between cells and, through resonance, turns into energy. It increases the temperature below the epidermis, increases blood flow and enlarges capillaries. The bigger the capillary, the less pressure on the heart. The function of the capillary is to provide oxygen and nutrients to all 60 trillion human cells and transfer waste from the results of metabolism out of the body.

    If something is wrong with the circulation system, it will cause many diseases, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, lumps, arthritis, numbness and/or coldness in arms and legs, etc. An adult’s capillaries can surround the earth 3 times and is known as Human’s Second Heart. It is very important.


    3. Increases metabolism.

    If circulation is improved, waste from the metabolism will be able to be discharged from the body quickly, thus reducing the burden on the liver and kidneys. These wastes contain heavy metals that causes cancer, the lactic acid that increases fatigue and aging, fatty acids and fat beneath the skin, uranium Ions that cause high blood pressure and uric acid that causes aches.


    4. Stabilize acidity of the body.

    Far infrared Is able to cleanse blood, improve skin conditions, and prevent arthritis that is caused by excess uric acid. It stabilizes the acidity of the body and Increases immune system function.


    5. Moderate high and low blood pressure.

    Most high blood pressure patients encounter shoulder pain, headache, insomnia, blurry vision, tinnitus, nausea, etc., whereas most low blood pressure victims are weak and nervous, easy to get tired, have loss of appetite, coldness in arms and legs, dizziness, etc. High blood pressure and low blood pressure are two opposite illnesses. Experiments show using far infrared therapy can improve blood conditions, increase circulation and be able to adjust blood pressure in both conditions.


    6. About Diabetes

    If secretion of insufficient insulin occurs, glucose will not be utilized fully and will cause sugar to accumulate in the blood. In time, urine will contain sugar and this is known as diabetes . Diabetes is caused by the abnormal behavior of metabolism. Therefore, with the help of far infrared therapy, metabolism is increased. That helps to heal the damaged cells.


    7. About Cancer and far infrared

    Cancer cells are very weak against high temperatures with the help of far infrared’s penetration ability. Heat will not damage the surrounding healthy cells. Its temperature is able to damage the cancer cells. Glandular cancer cells will die at 38°C and 59% of tumors will die at 43°C. 


    8. Arthritis

    Besides unbearable pain, these conditions will also increase inflammation. Far infrared can improve blood circulation and get rid of blood clots. It also activates cells and reduces inflammation and pain and regains a healthy body.


    9. Body slimming

    Excessive water, salt and fat will be discharged from the body along with sweat. This is the case especially for fat, because it is dissolved in water more easily at 40°C and it is more likely to be discharged, therefore having a slimming effect. In 20 to 30 minutes of sauna use, the sweat produced is equivalent to running for 10,000 meters. It's incomparable to other short-term sports. For those who are unable to exercise, yet want to slim down, this is the ideal choice.


    10. Beauty

    Far infrared radiation on the skin stimulates skin cells and increases the secretion of nucleic acid, which increases the metabolism of the melanin function of white cells. Because the strengthening of cell reproduction and solid water prevents the growth of melanin, it reduces black spots. Increasing the resonance of skin tissue cells, can help to reproduce smoother skin. It repairs the fiber layer beneath the skin while solidifying the fat, increasing skin quality and achieving ultimate beauty. This type of treatment, when it comes from the inner body, is such that no other beauty product is able to produce the same result.


    Far infrared therapy was founded in1976 by Dr. Chui Quin Wei from Shanghai, China. He uncovered that far infrared can heal wounds from coldness and it spread to Japan in 1977. Led by Japan’s Yamazaki in collaboration many hospitals in Japan, they discovered that far infrared aids up to 50 different conditions. They are: burns, cancer, gastric, kidney and liver diseases, cystitis, prostatic hypertrophy, hemorrhoids, nocturnal enuresis, high and low blood pressure, side-effects of stroke, frozen shoulder, backache, asthma, respiratory disease, ear, nose and throat diseases, nerve pain, insomnia, anemia, skin diseases, effects of post accidents, mental disorders and body odor.

    What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?

    What is Cannabidiol?

    "Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds that act on specialized cellular receptors in both animals and humans. Cannabinoids originating from plants are called phytocannabinoids. The two most researched thus far are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound of cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD). There are currently 85 different cannabinoids isolated from the cannabis sativa species including hemp and marijuana. The hemp plant has significantly more CBD compared to marijuana, with CBD representing up to 40% of the total cannabinoids in this plant. 3

    Hemp, unlike marijuana, is the major plant commercial source for CBD extracts. CBD is produced by the hemp plant in the form of a sticky resin produced in specialized glands located on young leaves, twigs and buds of the plant. The CBD-containing resin is a source of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and numerous other protective molecules (that will be discussed) for the growth and reproductive functions of the plant.7 Extracts obtained from hemp's resin are used to make concentrated CBD produced and sold as a legal non-psychoactive nutritional supplement.”(Nutritional & Medical Applications for Cannabidiol: Hemp Health Benefits without THC R)


     

    CBD's Many Health Benefits;

    Anti-inflammatory

    CBD receptors in the body regulate inflammation in the body and studies on CBD show that it is has potent anti-inflammatory properties;

    "Anti-inflammatory effect is several hundred times more potent than aspirin when measured in standard animal tests and isolated cell assays;"(Nutritional & Medical Applications for Cannabidiol: Hemp Health Benefits without THC R)

    "A 2012 study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine found that CBD significantly suppressed chronic inflammatory and neuropathic pain in rodents"(R)


    Anti-epileptic/Anticonvulsive/Antiseizure

    The use of cannabis for epilepsy goes back to 1881. Here is a quote from the 1881 book "Epilepsy and other chronic convulsive diseases : their causes, symptoms, & treatment"

    "Ext. cannabis indica (was administered) three times a day, was then ordered ; the fits ceased at once,

    ' a wonderful change ' the patient declared. He had no fit for six months, and then, having discontinued attendance, the fits recurred, but were at once arrested by the same dose of Indian hemp. He continued free from fits for some months, until, during my absence, bromide was substituted for the Indian hemp : the fits immediately recurred, and he left off treatment. He returned to the hospital in six months' time, and on Indian hemp passed two months without an attack."(R)

    "Human studies have been equivocal:

    In a double-blind study Cunha et al (1980) evaluated CBD for intractable epilepsy in 16 grand-mal patients. Each patient received 200 to 300 mg daily of CBD or placebo along with antiepileptic drugs continued up to 4-months. In the treatment group 7 of 8 responded with fewer seizures. In the placebo group 1 of 8 responded with fewer seizures

    In a human study of intractable epilepsy with 12 subjects, Ames et al (19862 14 were unable to duplicate these results and participants showed no response to CBD

    In 2012, in a review of 3 studies that exclusively used CBD for intractable seizures, Hill et al found that wo of the three demonstrated significant anti-seizure effects

    In 2014 Insys Therapeutics (USA) was granted orphan drug designation for its pharmaceutical CBD for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) and two rare forms of epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and Dravet Syndrome. GW Pharmaceuticals has also been given the same designation for a CBD drug for Dravet Syndrome in children.

    Neuroprotective10,32

    In experimental models activation of CB2 receptors (the receptors primarily associated with CBD) CBD has delayed progression of neurodegenerative events, in particular, those related to the toxic influence of microglial cells (excessive immune response) on neuronal homeostasis33. "


    Neuroprotective-Protects the brain from concussion damage

    Studies have shown CBD to both protect the brain from damage if given before a concussion and also to speed healing after a concusion. The Pittburg Steelers are now using CBD to help protect their players from concusions.

    One of the main causes of brain damage after a concusion is caused by inflammation. CBD's anti-inflammatory properties help protect the brain from the damage caused by this inflammation. A study in Current Pharmaceutical Design showed

    "Cannabinoids of all classes have the ability to protect neurons from a variety of insults that are believed to underlie delayed neuronal death after traumatic brain injury (TBI), including excitotoxicity, calcium influx, free radical formation and neuroinflammation."(R)

    Dr  Joseph Maroon the neuroseurgeon for the Pittburg Steelers is using CBD to protect the players from brain injury. He wrote the report "Nutritional & Medical Applications for Cannabidiol: Hemp Health Benefits without THC", in it he discusses the neuroprotective effects of cannibidiol;

    "In experimental models activation of CB2 receptors (the receptors primarily associated with CBD) CBD has delayed progression of neurodegenerative events, in particular, those related to the toxic influence of microglial cells (excessive immune response) on neuronal homeostasis.

    CBD has been shown to reduce glutamate toxicity of the brain.

    CBD can reduce oxidative damage from glutamate via antioxidant effects

    Neuroprotective benefits of CBD are reported to be greater than those of vitamin C and vitamin E. "


    Anti-Cancer

    Cannabinoids including CBD offer potential applications as antitumor drugs, based on the ability to limit inflammation, cell proliferation, and cell survival;

    In particular, emerging evidence suggests that agonists of cannabinoid receptors expressed by tumor cells may offer a novel strategy to treat cancer;

    GW Pharmaceuticals (UK) has preclinical data and has been approved for a human trial for GBM using submaximal doses of THC and CBD along with temozolomide (TMZ). This pharmaceutical THC and CBD has produced a strong antitumoral action in both TMZsensitive and TMZ-resistant tumors, and will be therapeutically exploited for the management of GBM. 38

    Here is paper which goes over the anti-cancer effects of CBD on various forms of cancer https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3579246/


     

    Antioxidant

    In a study 7 of 8 patients given CBD had fewer siezures

    "In a double-blind study Cunha et al (1980) evaluated CBD for intractable epilepsy in 16 grand-mal patients. Each patient received 200 to 300 mg daily of CBD or placebo along with antiepileptic drugs continued up to 4-months. In the treatment group 7 of 8 responded with fewer seizures. In the placebo group 1 of 8 responded with fewer seizures "

    “In the 1970's CBD's anticonvulsive effects in humans were discovered. Later, other studies have shown anti-nausea, anti-anxiety, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects as well as other disease specific benefits. “(R)


    Helps in reducing marijuana use

    Extracts from interview with Stuart Tomc from CV Sciences "Stuart Tomc, Cannabinoid Educator: Staying in Step With

    the State of Research";

    “We have 2 primary endocannabinoid receptors and they are known as cannabinoid receptors 1 and 2, or CB1 and CB2. These are G protein–coupled receptors and they are located in the central and the peripheral nervous system; white blood cells; adipocytes, or fat cells; the liver; and bone. These receptor sites—and this whole system—are involved in learning and synaptic plasticity, immune regulation, appetite and pain, metabolic health and insulin sensitivity, and myriad other things.”

    “The low-hanging fruit(health benefits from CBD) is really in pain, inflammation, anxiety, and neuroprotection. Those are areas where there is great interest—also in post-traumatic stress disorder.”


    Summary of the Actions of CBD

    CBD has been studied and found in both in vivo and in vitro studies to exert anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-nausea, anti-emetic, anti-psychotic, anti-ischemic, anxiolytic and anti-epileptic actions that may offer significant human health benefits.


     

    Anti-inflammatory

    CBD — analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect mediated by dual COX and LOX Inhibition;  Anti-inflammatory effect is several hundred times more potent than aspirin when measured in standard animal tests and isolated cell assays;

    Black Cumin Seed aka Black Seed - an ancient remedy with many amazing properties

    An ancient remedy that has been in use for over 2000 years, black cumin seed, also known simply as black seed is an immune boosting remedy(study) that has been used for asthma, infections, eczema, headaches, diabetes, hypertension and coughs.

    Black seed contains a natural chemical called Thymoquinone which is a large part of the bio-active components of the essential oil.

    In traditional medicine it is used to stimulate the body's own "healing energy" to build resistance to illness and recover from fatigue. 

    Black seed has been tested to inhibit the growth of staph bacteria was well as gram-negative bacteria.(R)(R)

    Black Cumin oil is also a potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine. Studies have shown that the Thymoquinone in black seed inhibits inflammatory cytokines.(R

    Black Cumin seed has been traditionally used as a remedy for diabetes. A study showed that an extract of black seed was able to lower blood sugar.(R

    Some of the other health benefits of black cumin seed is that it is neuro-protective, it can have a anti-seizure effect, it can protect from ionizing radiation and can help people with opioid addictions.

    Black seed also has anti-anxiety and anti-depressant properties.

    Studies on black seed have also shown it can assist in weight loss in men with obesity.(R)

    As you can see, this is a potent and versatile natural medicinal seed. Click here to view available formulas online.
