Phosphatidyl choline is used to treat cancer as well as arteriosclerosis. It has been shown to have an effect on programmed cell death and cancer cells are particularly vulnerable to this substance because phosphatidyl choline is able to penetrate through the fatty membrane sheath that surround them. Phosphatidyl choline is also used in anti-aging medicine.
Phosphatidyl choline is the primary phospholipid component in human cell membranes. It’s a component in lecithin and a precursor of acetylcholine (an important neurotransmitter that plays a role in arousal, memory, attention, and motivation). Orthodox medicine has made use of phosphatidyl choline as a treatment for fatty embolisms as well as to reverse plaque build-up in patients with arteriosclerosis. An IV treatment known as Plaque-X makes use of phosphatidyl choline to treat a variety of circulatory problems . Choline is produced as a by-product of the synthesis and metabolism of phosphatidyl choline. Choline and phosphatidyl choline have an effect on cell growth and programmed cell death . Phosphatidyl choline supports the growth of healthy endothelial cell membranes. As a fat emulsifier, it can remove plaque from arterial walls .
Phosphatidyl choline is used to penetrate the fatty membrane that surrounds cancer cells in order to visualize metabolic processes using specialized technologies in orthodox medicine .
Safety and Effectiveness
Phosphatidyl choline is used to slow the aging process, improve brain functioning and memory, and stabilize cell membranes. It’s also used to treat the following health issues:
- Liver disease
- Hepatitis C
- High cholesterol
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Lyme Disease
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Mood disorders .
Intravenous phosphatidyl choline combined with intravenous curcumin is especially toxic to breast cancer cells. When these two substances are combined together, they are five times more effective at combating cancer .
How Intravenous Phosphatidyl Choline Is Administered
The protocol for administering phosphatidyl choline is called the “PK Protocol” after Patricia Kane PhD, the originator of this treatment modality. Injectable glutathione is often given in conjunction with phosphatidyl choline. These are the primary components of the therapy .
Phosphatidyl choline treatment includes an IV push of lower doses known as Essentiale-N. The maximum amount of Essentiale-N is 2 vials or 10cc given up to two times per day. Usually, this treatment is only offered twice weekly. The IV is administered as a short IV push .
Success with phosphatidyl choline can be measured as a drop in serum CPK and improvement in the F.A.C.T. (Functional Acuity Contrast Test) vision test. This is an in-office vision test that simply measures a patient’s ability to discriminate between different shades of gray. Patients read a chart at a set distance .
Retinal cells are neuronal cells that emerge directly from the brain. As a result, weakness on the F.A.C.T. correlates with central nervous system toxicity. Weakness could result from interference in the nerve impulse transmission due to fatty acid abnormalities, from a lack of fluidity in the membrane, or from the presence of intracellular toxins from infectious agents or heavy metals. When a patient’s F.A.C.T. indicates that there are toxicities in the nervous system, this means that a foreign object may be sitting on the cell membrane, blocking its fluidity, or it could just indicate that the natural aging process has led to a shift away from cell membrane fatty acids made of phosphatidyl choline to sphingomyelin. A poor score on the F.A.C.T. indicates that IV treatment with phosphatidyl choline is needed with improvements in test scores seen within 30 minutes of a single dose of IV treatment .
Possible Negative Effects
When taken orally, phosphatidyl choline can cause sweating, stomach upset, and diarrhea. As an injection, it can cause irritation, swelling, redness, itching, burning, bruising, and pain at the site of injection. Typically these symptoms resolve within a couple of days .
