Harnessing Hydrogen’s Antioxidant Power to Treat Autoimmune Disease

By Carrie Decker, ND, Contributing Writer

Although hydrogen (H2) is well known as an alternative fuel, recognized as such by the Energy Policy Act of 1992, it was not until 2007 that it began to really make the scene in medicine.

Since then, there’s been an explosion of research on the use of H2 for a wide range of medical conditions. Evidence is mounting that H2 has potential benefits in the treatment of inflammatory and autoimmune conditions like psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis.

HydrogenHydrogen was first used in a medical context in the 1940s, for the purpose of preventing decompression sickness in divers. However, it was largely impractical due to its high flammability; H2 is easily ignited at a concentration of approximately 4% in air.

Joe Pizzorno - The Toxin Solution

Written by Meg Sinclair

For decades, Dr. Pizzorno has been at the forefront of a movement to build bridges between naturopathic, functional, and mainstream medicine. In recent years, his attention has been focused on the myriad ways that environmental toxins are damaging personal and public health, and on developing practical strategies to help people reduce their toxic loads.

His recent book, The Toxin Solution, presents a harrowing picture yet offers good clinical guidance on how to manage the onslaught. Consider the following:

•    94% of Americans are exposed to enough polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons to double their lifetime risk of asthma.
•    60% of US women carry loads of PCB187 sufficient to double their risk of breast cancer.
•    33% of Americans have lead levels high enough to double the risk of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
•    25% are exposed to enough aluminum to double Alzheimer’s risk.

Holistic Primary Care had the honor of hosting Dr. Pizzorno at our 2017 Practitioner Channel Forum. He shared his research on the role of common toxins in chronic disease and his field-tested therapeutic strategies. Watch the full-length session from HPC’s video archive:
