Gulf Oil Spill Secondary Prevention Program: General
The secondary prevention protocol specifically designed for
those sustaining chemical exposures from the Gulf oil spill is customized for
every individual, based on their own unique situation. There is not a
The process includes the following steps:
The foundational concept is that exposures are occurring and
unavoidable. Given exposure, secondary prevention to mitigate the effects
of exposure is warranted.
The basic premise of the secondary prevention approach is to
put the body of the person exposed into the best position to adapt healthfully
to the changing environment so that adverse effects are minimized in both the
short-term and long-term.
The methods we employ include activation of both genetic and
epigenetic adaptive mechanisms through specifically designed and customized
protocols for each individual.
A series of initial evaluations by phone and questionnaire
form the basis for the definition of every individual's protocol.
Laboratory tests that include blood samples are done only
A five-phased protocol is designed for each participant:
Phase 1: Neurological re-balancing to reduce external
and internal sources of oxidative stress. This is necessary because if
the neurological/energetic systems are not balanced, there is limited biological
access to individual cells and tissues where the adaptive mechanisms occur, and
very limited capacity for the person to achieve healthful adaptation.
Phase 2: Cellular energy enhancement and first line
oxidation mitigation through specific-function nutraceuticals.
Phase 3: Cell membrane opening and adaptation facilitation,
primarily through the use of specific-function nutraceuticals
Phase 4: Detoxification of spaces between cells, where
necessary, via specific-function nutraceuticals
Phase 5: Intracellular detoxification, where necessary, via
specific function nutraceuticals
Laboratory tests to monitor progress are employed only where

A telephone screening process defines whether a participant
is best suited to a 'Guided Self-Help' protocol or a 'Clinical Supervision'
Once screened into the proper protocol, we provide a person
to guide each participant through the process.
The protocol is ongoing and for best results is recommended
for 18 months. The participants will begin to feel better early in the
process; however, achieving sustainable adaptive changes requires several cell
turnovers, hence the extended period of time on the protocol.
The cost, on average, is $400 per month over the term of the
protocol. The initial evaluation cost is $750 and the remainder is
related to the cost of the medicines, nutraceuticals and laboratory tests.
We stand ready to assist individuals in petitioning for cost
coverage for the program to the BP Escrow Fund, government insurance through
Medicare and Medicaid, and private insurance.
