In Japan the Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry (CRIEPI) initiated the organization of "hormesis" research at a number of Universities and in cooperation with the National Cancer Research Institute and the National Institute of Radiological Science. Researchers carried out experimental activities on the effects of low-dose radiation on mammals and found evidence of comprehensive bio-chemical reactions, followed by significant biological responses. The beneficial use of low dose radiation therapy is indicated in and categorized as follows:
Cancer therapy by the enhancement of the immune system and tumor suppression genes such as P53;
Radio-adaptive response enhances the enzyme synthesis of genes for the prevention of DNA damage, for DNA repair - the efficiency of cell apoptosis;
Rejuvenation of cells such as the decrease of lipid peroxide and the increase of cell membrane permeability, and general enhancement of DNA repair;
Enhancement of the damage control system of cells to prevent oxidative attack of free radicals by increasing protective enzymes such as Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and Glutathione (Gpx);Effects on neuro-transmitting and thinking systems through increase of key enzymes and hormones.
Therapeutic applications for obstinate diseases, and the consequences of the aging process, start with pain and stress relief as the body's natural hormones (endorphins, enkephalin, adrenaline, insulin, histamine) are optimized. Responses of SOD and Gpx clearly protect cells and suppress the oxidative attack of free radicals. Cell membrane permeability is increased allowing key hormones to cross cell walls. DNA repairs and cell recovery are also obvious in the research findings. A key tumor suppression gene - the P53 - is activated and helper T cells are enhanced by means of the decrease of suppressor cells.
Overall, stopping or suppressing the progress of the disease process, followed by recovery is to be expected. With further comprehensive research, optimum individual dose rates for preventive measure, health maintenance, post operative recovery and healing of injuries - in addition to the various disease processes - will be found in the future.
Current media and most American health providers refer to radon exposure as a negative experience and it is at high levels of exposure. Science studies show quite the opposite at the low levels emitted at Sunshine Mine. Science Studies. (link to page) Populations thrive in areas that have levels of radon consistently hundreds of times the emissions in the Sunshine Mine.
Radon Therapy is found to induce beneficial long term effects for many who suffer conditions of chronic pain due to disease or injury. Effective for and not limited to the following immune system conditions & symptoms:
|Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)
Diabetes Type l&ll
Arthritis (OA, RA, JRA, etc.)
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Post Polio Syndrome (PPS)
High Blood Pressure
Low levels initiate positive changes throughout the body and many clients experience relief not only from what they have come for, but additional health problems as well.
