Essentiale is a preparation of essential phospholipids. Essentiale normalizes the metabolism of lipids and proteins, improves the detoxification function of the liver, restores the cellular structure of the liver and retards the producing of conjunctive tissue. Essentiale medications are indicated for the treatment of fatty degeneration of the liver, hepatitis (including toxic hepatitis, liver damage caused by medicines or alcohol abuse), cirrhosis of the liver, disturbances in liver function associated with different illnesses.
Phospholipids are essential structural components of all cellular membranes. Essential phospholipids (substance EPL) - are the complex substances of natural origin (ethers of cholinephosphoric acid (phosphatidylcholine) and unsaturated fatty acids (linoleic, linolenic, olein)). Essentiale medications possess the membranotropic properties, metabolic and hepatoprotective action; regulates lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. Essential phospholipids increase functional status of the liver.
While the disturbance of the liver metabolism essential phospholipids ensure the entering the high energy phospholipids, which are ideally combined with the endogenous phospholipids. Under the Essentialle phospholipids influence clinical and biochemical liver indexes are improved.
Combination of Essentiale with cordiamin (nikethamide) and vitamin E (50 mg/kg for 35 days) considerably activates the mono-oxigenase, glucoro- and glutathione transferase systems of the liver: and as a result the free-radical processes became less intense.
The spectrum of essential phospholipids' activity in chronic degenerative liver diseases can be described in the following properties:
* recovery and maintaining the consistency of the hepatocytes;
* activation of the phospholipid-depending ferments;
* improvement in the lipids metabolism caused by accelerated synthesis of lipoproteins in the liver;
* activation of synthesis RNA and as a result the normalization of the proteins metabolism;
* increased synthesis of glycogen in the liver;
* improvement in the detoxification function of the liver;
* the conversion of neutral fats and cholesterol into the easily metabolizing forms;
* decreased the fatty infiltration of the hepatocytes.
The primary focus on serotonin deficiency as the main cause of depression has created treatment failure in many depressed and addicted patients. Other happy (excitatory) neurotransmitters are often ignored and some patients become more depressed when treated with medication. The classic depressive disorder patient who presents to Florida Detox ® is Susan, a 42-year-old professional female who seeks medical attention for depression from her local physician. Dr. Jones immediately assumes that she would benefit from a serotonin enhancer such as Paxil, Prozac, or Lexapro. If indeed this patient suffers from low serotonin levels, her depression should respond within 2-4 weeks of treatment with the serotonin enhancer. Typically, prescribed a medication like Paxil (20 mg per day), she returns one month later insisting her depression is worse. Dr. Jones raises the Paxil to 40 mg per day. Frequently these patients are prescribed extremely high doses (60 mg to 80 mg per day) in the physician’s effort to conquer the problem. Unfortunately Dr. Jones disregards the continuous report from the patient that they are not feeling any better and may actually feel more depressed. What is the problem? If serotonin is unilaterally elevated above normal levels with the mediation, the brain will down regulate production of dopamine. This makes the patient with dopamine deficiency even more dopamine deficient. These patients will typically begin to self medicate with dopaminergic drugs like Percocet, Vicodin, or OxyContin to counteract the decreased production. All of these drugs produce increased dopamine activity in the brain’s pleasure center (nucleus accumbens). When these patients are accurately diagnosed with their genetic dopamine/glutamate deficiency and treated with appropriate dopamine/glutamate enhancing medication, they quickly experience cessation of their depression and lose the craving (psychological and biochemical) for drugs and alcohol. Treatment results in better relapse statistics with the application of this scientific approach to addiction and depression. Unilateral elevation of serotonin without dopamine level protection will result in markedly elevated prolactin levels. Prolactin will increase appetite and decrease sex drive. When dopamine levels are enhanced to normal levels, sex drive will return as will better appetite control.
