Inflamation – Time Magazine

On February 23rd, 2004 Time Magazine released the magazine cover entitled “The Secret Killer.” The story linked to this cover is about inflammation and how it can affect everything that happens in our body from Alzheimer’s disease, colon cancer, heart attacks right down to aging.

An excerpt from the article explains “Suddenly, inflammation has become one of the hottest areas of medical research. Hardly a week goes by without the publication of yet another study uncovering a new way that chronic inflammation does harm to the body. It destabilizes cholesterol deposits in the coronary arteries, leading to heart attacks and potentially even strokes. It chews up nerve cells in the brains of Alzheimer’s victims. It may even foster the proliferation of abnormal cells and facilitate their transformation into cancer. In other words, chronic inflammation may be the engine that drives many of the most feared illnesses of middle and old age.

This concept is so intriguing because it suggests a new and possibly much simpler way of warding off disease. Instead of different treatments for, say, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and colon cancer, there might be a single, inflammation-reducing remedy that would prevent all three.”

The article continues to describe how they fight against inflammation is continuing to expand and scientific links between major illness and disease are being exposed. Even back then the research on inflammation and illness was starting to explode; this new view of inflammation is changing the way some scientists do medical research. “Virtually our entire R.-and-D. effort is [now] focused on inflammation and cancer,” says Dr. Robert Tepper, president of research and development at Millennium Pharmaceuticals in Cambridge, Mass. In medical schools across the U.S., cardiologists, rheumatologists, oncologists, allergists and neurologists are all suddenly talking to one another — and they’re discovering that they’re looking at the same thing. The speed with which researchers are jumping on the inflammation bandwagon is breathtaking. Just a few years ago, “nobody was interested in this stuff,” says Dr. Paul Ridker, a cardiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital who has done some of the groundbreaking work in the area. “Now the whole field of inflammation research is about to explode.”

Based on the explosive inflammation movement that continues today we are excited about the initial findings outlined below with regard to Pearlcium and inflammation.

The above photo is an infrared image of Dr. Rulin Xiu taken on December 17th, 2009 at the A4M Anti- aging Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The photo was taken using the medical infrared imaging equipment known as Spectron IR. The Spectron IR is a state of the art, patent-pending infrared heat processing imaging camera that is used by hospitals and doctors to do adjunctive screening and diagnosing for breast cancer, peripheral vascular disease, neuromusculoskeletal disorders, extracranial, cerebral and facial vascular disease, thyroid gland abnormalities, neoplastic conditions, metabolic conditions, and inflammatory conditions because it can help locate abnormal heat patterns in the body.

The photo on the left (before) clearly shows general and typical inflammation throughout Dr. Rulin Xiu’s facial area. The amount of inflammation is clearly presented by the color of the image, red=maximum heat and inflammation present while black=cool and normal cell structure. Note the amount of red in the image on the left showing inflammation centered largely on the forehead, eyes and on the mouth. There are large concentrations of nominal inflammation surrounding the cheeks and eye sockets. In the picture on the right (taken 50 minutes later and after 2 capsules of Pearlcium, straight in the mouth for quick absorption into the blood) you will notice a dramatic decrease in color. Notice the forehead area has turned largely orange in color and the cheeks, eye sockets and mouth have in some cases decreased in color by as much as 3 levels. This shows a dramatic decrease in the amount of present inflammation detected by the infrared imagine machine after taking Pearlcium.

Mary Anne Crandall, B.S.M.S is a specialist with Spectron IR and is well versed in the field of inflammation. She was stunned and excited about the results and even documented the fact that the temperature in Dr. Rulin Xiu’ eye area decreased by 1 degree between the first and second photo. Dr. Rulin Xiu and the Pearlcium team are very excited by the fact that we are discussing and setting out the terms of a long-term clinical study in conjunction with Spectron IR.
