From the first cases, the results from detoxification were remarkable.

Rescue workers slept through the night for the first time since 9/11.They found they could breathe comfortably without inhalers or other medication.

Aside from the subjective sense that their bodies were being cleansed, the tangible evidence was dramatic.

“Patients have had black paste coming out of their pores in the sauna,” notes Jim Woodworth, president of the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project. “Their sweat has stained towels purple, blue, orange, yellow and black. They have reported bowel movements that are blue, or green, or that have smelled like smoke —despite the fact that they had not been at a fire scene for months.”

A recent evaluation of 286 cases treated at the project’s Manhattan facility, Downtown Medical, P.C., found that on average neurological, muscle and lung symptoms resolved fully in three out of four cases treated and greatly improved in virtually every case. Click here for a summary (pdf format).

A recent study, presented in Berlin at the 24th International Symposium on Halogenated Environmental Organic Pollutants and POPs (Persistent Organic Pollutants), measured blood levels of PCBs before and after treatment in a group of seven men present at the collapse of the WTC towers. Five were firefighters, one was a volunteer rescue worker and the other worked on Wall Street.

Before treatment, all seven had elevated levels of mono-ortho PCBs, similar in effects to the highly hazardous chemical dioxin. In fact, pre-treatment blood levels were consistent with those seen in workers occupationally exposed to PCBs. Post-treatment, toxicity levels decreased an average 65 percent.
