Here is what I found out:
The real meaning
‘Trophy’ means ‘food’ or ‘nourishment’ in Greek; ‘dys’ signifies ‘difficult’ or problematic’, “bad, ill, abnormal”. So ‘muscular dystrophy’ simply means that ‘nourishment to the muscle tissue is being problematic or not going well’. ‘A-trophy’ simply means that there is no nourishment to the muscles. To overcome Muscular Dystrophy we need to find out why nutrition is not reaching the muscles, and secondly, how to get much higher levels of nutrition reaching the muscles.
This is one of the first message my friend Mark sent me, this is etymology , the analyse of the word origin, sometimes doctors used complicated words that hide actually an easy meaning.
The first time I met Dr Georges Georgiou, naturopath Da Vinci Center in Larnaca , Author of ‘ Curing the incurable with Holistic medicine: the Da Vinci secret revealed’, I explained him that the doctors are talking about muscular dystrophy also they haven’t found yet what is it exactly…He told me that none of this information explained the cause of problem also he said that even if we find a name of disease that wouldn’t give us explanations about how to treat it cause even the gene can modify again..
A nutritional deficiency
Nutrition is the base, the matter that has been used to create , to build our cells and it is also the material, the fuel that using our cells to function. The importance of food is the base of all ancestral medicine such as the Tibetan medicine which heal people using nutrition and mantras (intentions), Ayurveda medicine in which doctors calculate Dosha unbalances responsible of diseases and cure with appropriate diet and herbs..Even Hippocrates, the ancestor and pioneer of the Medicine declared “ Let food be thy medicine and medicine thy food”.
1 )Have you ever heard about genetrophic diseases?
The important interrelationship between food and the genes was first called the “genetotrophic concept” by Roger J. Williams, PhD. Dr. Williams, the discoverer of the B-vitamin pantothenic acid, has explained in his books and scientific papers how existing biochemical birth defects may be effectively overcome with optimum nutrition. (Muscular dystrophy and individual metabolic patterns: The possibilities of a nutritional therapeutic approach. Proc. of the First and Second Medical Conferences [1951-1952] of the Muscular Dystrophy Assoc. of America, 118-22 .
In genetotrophic diseases, genetic abnormality leads to nutritional disability. To compensate, the body requires the availability of larger than normal quantities of one or more nutrients for the affected gene to successfully express itself. For that particular person, normal dietary vitamin intakes are quite inadequate for normal function. It is a bit like trying to take a hot bath with the drain open: it can be done, but you are going to need a lot more hot water.
“A disease state in which the genetic pattern of the client or patient requires an augmented supply of one or more nutrients in order to prevent the expression of a genetic predisposition.”
Williams RJ. (1953). Muscular dystrophy and individual metabolic patterns: The possibilities of a nutritional therapeutic approach. Proc. of the First and Second Medical Conferences [1951-1952] of the Muscular Dystrophy Assoc. of America, 118-22 (Additional references below, 4-7.)
So genetic diseases would be just a myth and the real explanation of repetition of the same disease in the same family would be just the consequence of a simple deficiency that can easily solved with appropriate extra nutritional supplementations.
2) Veterinary evidences: the cure for nutritional muscular dystrophy for lambs
Article from Wikipedia
Typical stance of affected lambs, with arched back
Nutritional Muscular Dystrophy (Nutritional Myopathy or White Muscle Disease) is a disease caused by a deficiency of selenium and vitamin E in dietary intake. Soils that contains low levels of selenium produce forages and grains that are deficient in selenium. Similarly, if the forage is of low quality or is not stored properly it may be deficient in vitamin E. If an animal consumes this type of diet without additional supplementation they become susceptible to this disease. This condition often effects young ruminants, such as calves and lambs.
Selenium and vitamin E are antioxidants therefore, deficiencies of these nutrients leads to oxidative damage to cells within the body. The muscle cells are the most vulnerable to damage in livestock species.
The oxidative damage causes degeneration of muscles, in particular those within the skeletal and cardiac systems. If the cardiac muscles are impaired the animal may exhibit signs of respiratory distress. While deterioration of skeletal muscles results in stiffness, weakness, and recumbency.
Treatment & Prevention
If the diet is deficient supplement with selenium and/or vitamin E. Injections can be given to treat the condition or as a preventative measure.
We understand in this article that selenium and vitamin E are keys ingredients to cure Muscular Dystrophy.
3) The appropriate nutritional supplementation for Muscular dystrophy
Dr Joel Wallash was graduated from the agriculture then veterinary school, he worked in Africa to study exotic animals…He then came back in US where he conducted many autopsy in the Zoo, he was in charge of looking for the most sensitive animal species to pollution and looking for the causes of natural causes of death.. What he found out is that all were caused by a nutritional deficiency…He then decided to become a naturopath physician to transfer his work to the human race.He is now the founder of Youngevity company specialised in nutritional supplements for muscular dystrophy, the only nutritional company to receive the sanction of FDA-authorized claims.
Dr. Joel Wallach writes in Let’s Play Doctor:
The selenium levels in preconception women is important to the maintenance of pregnancy as well as the prevention of muscular dystrophy in all of its forms (i.e. Duchenne, Erb (scapulohumeral), Leyden-Moebius (pelvis-femoral), Landouzy-Dejerine (facio-scapulo-humeral), Becker’s (benign juvenile) and Gowers (hands and feet)), which are in reality artificial classifications of MD by the groups of muscles initially affected. Keshan disease (heart muscular dystrophy) which is also caused by selenium deficiency should be added to the list of muscular dystrophies. In the veterinary profession, muscular dystrophy (“White Muscle Disease”) has been eliminated by the use of selenium in pregnant females and rapidly growing prepubic animals. In addition to overt deficiencies of selenium in the diet, the celiac disease type changes in the small intestine caused by food allergies is the common cause of tissue deficiencies of selenium. The symptoms of MD can start with weakness, scoliosis (curvature of the spine), and enlargement of certain muscle groups (i.e. calves, trapezius, etc.) to compensate for the loss of strength of synergistic muscle groups. A muscle biopsy is usually done by a neurologist to make the diagnosis of MD. If selenium and vitamin E were to be given 1M or IV at the very first onset of symptoms, the disease will be arrested or maybe even “cured.” The “orthodox” doctors resort to prednisone and surgery. It would be much healthier to go to a veterinarian for help. Treatment of MD and/or Keshan disease includes the use of
- selenium orally (plant derived colloidal minerals), IV or 1M at 50-1,000 mcg per day (based on weight),
- vitamin E 1M at 80 mg per day, q selenium orally at 250-1,000 mcg per day,
- vitamin E 800—1,200 orally,
- sulfur amino acids IV as a complete amino acid infusion and orally in the form of free amino acids and sugarless Jello,
- EFA at 5 gm t.i.d.
- Avoid food allergens, excessive fats (no more than 20 percent of the calories each day as fat) fried food, and margarine.
- Give choline as soy lecithin at 10—20 gm per day. Avoid exercise for one month during initial treatment period (this is the opposite recommendation from the “orthodox” treatment) to avoid undue injury to already biochemically compromised muscle tissue.
Todd Harrison case
Todd Harrisons’ Story
Todd’s Mission Todd Harrison’s mission is to educate the masses of people affected by Muscular Dystrophy.
Todd Harrison, 27, was diagnosed with Becker’s Muscular Dystrophy at the age of 3. The disease has been seen for 3 generations in his family having a Great-Uncle who passed away in 1996, and an Uncle more recently in 2013. Todd knew what was coming to him growing up, but he always had the outlook that he would not end up in a wheelchair. In 2010, Todd’s family started a not for profit organization called Defying Muscular Dystrophy and later funded one FDA approved clinical trial for an electric stimulation machine called VECTTOR (www.VECTTOR.com). The study as reported today shows the most remarkable improvements in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy’s history. Todd did not stop here, early in 2013, he discovered from a Naturopathic physician that Muscular Dystrophy in animals was shown to be cured by supplementation of the mineral selenium in 1958. After hearing this fact, Todd started a long search on the Internet with archived websites which had historic newspaper articles and information that could not be found anywhere else. The information that he discovered verified one thing, Muscular Dystrophy is simply a nutritional deficiency disease. Todd Harrison is on a full Youngevity protocol involving Beyond Tangy Tangerine, Osteo Fx, Plus EFA Plus, Gluco Gel capsules, Utimate Selenium, HGH Youth Complez and Z Radical.
Here is a link where to find the products that he mentioned: http://poweruptoday.my90forlife.com/
Todd Harrison has been documenting his progress and it shows unbelievable progress in such a short time. He has released a documentary called Defying Muscular Dystrophy: The Truth.
Words from Todd:
“Why didn’t doctors know this, I asked myself.”
In my archived search, I learned that Medical Doctors are only trained in one field of medicine called Allopathy which has the definition of: A system of medical practice that aims to combat disease by use of drugs or surgery.
I quickly saw that Medical Doctors were the wrong doctors to seek advice for Muscular Dystrophy. I made the decision to only seek Naturopathy as a means to heal myself and you will see on this website amazing things happen when you give your body the proper nutrients.
Discovering all of this information gave me the motivation to build BeatMuscularDystrophy.com and to help as many people with Muscular Dystophy as I can. Anything is possible and everyone needs that one push to get what they want in life.
I urge you to contact me on Facebook or via E-mail at info@BeatMuscularDystrophy.com. It is time to make a change in your mindset and health.”

What is Youngevity? It is a major force in Medical Nutrition. It is also known as the Medical Liberation Movement. They say when you support and promote the structure and function of the human body with 90 essential nutrients, miracles happen. This is the site for Youngevity Customer Defying Muscular Dystophy http://ggsworldwide.ning.com/blog/youngevity-customer-defying-muscular-dystrophy
What is Tangy Tangerine? It is a treatment that can vitaminise your body with 100% wholesome and nutritive certified organic vitamin and mineral blend with 140 ingredients including:
– 77 minerals (plant derived)
– 30 whole foods (indian gooseberry infused)
– 17 amino acids (whole food derived)
– 16 vitamins (synergized with raw fruits and vegetables)
– PrePro prebiotics & Probiotic Blend – PurigGenic Multifaceted Free Radical Defense System
https://www.facebook.com/130631290315029/videos/1374976699213809/ Todd talks more about Beyond Tangy Tangerine 2.0.
There are a total of 88 nutrients (Minerals, Vitamins and Acids) that you should feed daily. Some of the minerals cannot be found and supplementation is the solution. You don’t have to digest them. They get absorbed straight into the bloodstream and straight to the nucleus. Tangy Tangerine helps destroy free radicals in your body which help premature aging. Another critical ingredients are: Probiotic Fibers, FOS, Lactobacillus acidopholus. It also has Indian Gooseberry. It is a fruit that is effective in preventing toxic effects of liver damaging agents like ethanol, heavy metals and pollutants that we battle every day. Todd calls Tangy Tangerine 2.0 the King of Multi Vitamin and Mineral Complexes. Each isolated vitamin is synergized with actual whole foods ingredient.
Later on I talked with Todd Harrison on Messenger, he sent me videos about kids getting great improvements in just few weeks, they were able to stand in one leg longer, to walk longer also their motivation were different , they were enthusiastic.
1) Heavy metals poisoning
Heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, aluminium, mercury can be found in the food or drinks , this are the main source for children, also from amalgam fillings…
My son had a quite high level of Arsenic and Aluminum, Dr Georges from Da Vinci holistic Center, explained that the Arsenic has probably been transferred through placenta by the mother’s womb, it is also found in the pesticides on vegetables… About the Aluminium, Dr Georges remind me not to cook with foil, and to throw away any alumunium pans ..
Ken Presner cured himself of Multiple Sclerosis and Crohn’s disease by detoxifying himself of Mercury and other heavy metals. In his book, Against All Odds, Ken Presner says:
Nearly 100% of the hundreds of MS cases I have seen in the past 18 years have a history of silver amalgam fillings. It is actually a very rare case of MS that does not have silver amalgam fillings in the history, or in the history of the mother. Mercury crosses the placenta and is up to 2x more concentrated in the fetus than in the mother. Hence autism, cerebral palsy, ADD mental retardation, MD (Muscular Dystrophy) — and the 2008 lawsuit brought against the FDA by Moms Against Mercury regarding autistic children.
[…] You may have heard of children with ADD (Attention Deficit Syndrome), autism, mental retardation, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy and Type I diabetes. Dental mercury crosses the placenta and poisons the brain and the other organs and bodily systems in the developing fetus. Unbelievably, mercury is often in the fetus at double the levels of mother’s mercury levels. Dental mercury favors the brain. It also attacks all the glands in the endocrine system including the thyroid gland and the pancreas.
[…] The sad truth is that, for decades, millions of people have been suffering and dying from mercury poisoning disguised by various disease names: autism, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), mental retardation, MD (Muscular Dystrophy), Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) and Lupus.
Many children with no mercury fillings are autistic or suffer from other serious neurological problems like ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). But they are still mercury toxic. Mercury leaches from mother’s fillings, crosses the placenta and ends up in the brain of the unborn child. Mercury is also in breast milk. Dental mercury is so powerful that autism, ADD, mental retardation, MD (Muscular Dystrophy) and Cerebral Palsy can result from mother’s ―silver amalgams‖. These facts are well-documented.”
This extract from Ken Presner’s book explain how heavy metals are the causes of many diseases such as MD. In his book” My recovery protocol” , Ken Presner explained how important is the detoxification process, the different techniques he has been used during 4 years to finally get successfully cured. His book is divided into 2 parts, the Detoxification including chelation, that remove mercury and other metals from the tissues, organs and bodily systems, and the Revitalizing process with nutritional supplementation that takes place even during the detoxification protocol.
2) Vaccines and pesticides
Aluminium in Vaccines May Lead To Auto-Immune Disorders and Brain Inflammation
Aluminium is a known neuro-toxin. It may lead to auto-immunity disorders, long-term brain inflammation and associated neurological complications, and thus may have profound and widespread adverse health consequences. According to a new study published in Current Medical Chemistry, children up to 6 months of age receive 14 to 49 times more aluminium from vaccines than the FDA safety limits allow.
The Hepatitis B Vaccine Is Linked To Multiple Sclerosis, Arthritis, and Guillain-Barré
The Hepatitis B vaccine is associated with an increased risk of multiple sclerosis, according to the medical journal Neurology (2004 September 14). This vaccination is associated with the rare autoimmune neurological condition transverse myelitis.
Vaccines May Be Causing The ‘Autoimmune’ Disease Epidemic
Autoimmune diseases include Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Type 1 Diabetes, Arthritis, Parkinson’s, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Celiac disease, Addison’s disease, Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative colitis, Endometriosis, Graves Disease, Lyme disease, Sjogren’s disease, Kawasaki syndrome, Ankylosing spondylitis, Autism, and nearly 100 other diseases.
Dr. John Bergman blames vaccines for this ‘autoimmune’ epidemic. He says: “With 69 different vaccines injected into children… well, we now see a response in our bodies and a massive rise in inflammatory brain disorders like encephalitis and autism, or inflammatory lung disorders, like Asthma; inflammatory sinus issues like sinusitis; inflammatory gut reactions like colitis and IBS, etc.”. The Journal of Autoimmunity (February 2000) states: “Even though the data regarding the relation between vaccination and autoimmune disease is conflicting, some autoimmune phenomena are clearly related to immunisation.
The use of pesticides is now well documented, they use them in agriculture and we found them on our vegetables, they are also sprayed and travel through air…They can cause cancer, neurological and reproductive disorders.
To conclude, I would say that one of the major turn for me was also when in the Hospital as I was watching some videos that my friend Mark sent me. Those videos were about autistic child and the truth about vaccines and I realized how close was the behavior, the gait of those “toxic” children to my son Gabrillian and all of the lies from the Medical corporations. It became very clear to me that Gabrillian were just intoxicated by those chemicals, vaccines, pesticides, drugs; so far from what the doctors said about genetic and incurable disease.
Toxins can be eliminated, the process can be reversed and Gaby can be cured. It was so clear, so obvious that even Gabrillian lying in this hospital bed, I could clearly picture him running, jumping, happy…
