Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is one of the most exciting therapies now available in our clinic. PC has only recently received increased clinical focus because of its ability to dramatically improve the outcomes of patients in a wide range of disorders such as ALS , Lyme, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, MS, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Autism, Bipolar, Seizures, Hepatitis C, Environmental Illness, Cardiovascular disease and eye disease.
The eye ranks as one of the highest in lipid cellular complexity. There are over 100 million rods and cones in each eye and each one has up to 2000 layers of lipid membrane. Each membrane contains 140 million rhodopsin proteins which are responsible for capturing photons to produce sight. Each day a portion of this membrane and the rhodopisin proteins are sloughed off. Each cell discards about 7% of its lipid membrane stack each day. The entire photo-receiving structure is regenerated every 14 days!
PC directly up-regulates the fluidity of the membrane, improving its vitality which is essential for all of metabolism including neuronal transmission. Poor neuronal response is degraded in all the neurological disorders and is directly improved with Phosphatidylcholine (PC) therapy. Raising PC levels plays an important role in improving memory and recall, and has clinically shown to improve the flow of information of all the senses and most significantly eyesight. PC given either orally or intravenously helps restore the proper integrity of the cell membrane thereby restoring proper function of organ systems, especially the liver, the gut, the brain, immune system, heart, and hormonal system, which ultimately improves the total health of the individual.
