Some medical and veterinary doctors have been pioneering the use of microdose DNA from natural sources for a variety of respiratory health conditions. The modality has been used to treat respiratory ailments in dogs, cats and horses, as well as in infants, children, and adults. The observations from a number of these doctors also indicate that we are entering a new area of natural microdose DNA-based therapeutics.
The use of this natural microdose DNA comes as a surprise in that the clinical effect is impressive, and yet the therapeutic agent is used in the LOW microgram level. This is reminiscent of both homeopathy, where very low dose agents are used, and low dose neutralization therapy, which is often used for allergies and hypersensitivities.
Dr. Albert Dahlberg, M.D., Ph.D. , a professor at Brown University, says that natural microdose DNA is different than other DNA-based therapies. “This approach does not affect gene transfer; it relies on the physical molecule itself to place into motion a series of events at the cellular level”.
Dr. Dahlberg has determined that the nucleotide sequence doesn’t matter. Different animal sources of DNA were tested and found to work the same. Dr. Dahlberg created synthetic DNA with only adenine and thymine and it also appeared to produce the same results. So in opposition to the stated supposition of the published work, DNA can provide a general signal which may be related to the component nucleotides, but not necessarily their sequence.
This is not to detract from the impressive body of work published by many scientists in dozens of publications. And we do not suggest that nonspecific microdose DNA application is the same as the heavily researched bacterial sequence DNA. However, there appear to be striking similarities.
The microdose DNA appears to stimulate P2Y receptors on epithelial cells that line the respiratory tract and ear canal. P2Y stimulation then causes the cilia to beat faster and stronger, which in turn enhances mucus movement leading to drainage, expectoration, etc., and thus altering, or disrupting that habitat so favored by infectious agents. That is to say, DNA may likely have no direct antibacterial or antiviral effect, but rather, have a direct action on mucus itself in that those agents no longer find the ear canal or respiratory tract to be favorable habitats.
There is a DNA microdose product available now called Mucolyxir from Allergy Research Group. Mucolyxir™ is a DNA-based nutritional supplement, utilizing DNA from salmon. One method by which the body attempts to keep the lungs clear of mucus is to mount an immune response against the agent(s) causing the problem. When the attempts to eliminate foreign material fail, excessive DNA can build up from lysed white blood cells, resulting in viscous mucus. The small amount of DNA in Mucolyxir™ may balance mucus levels via a neutralization or feedback mechanism, just as a bit of ragweed extract is used to balance immune response to environmental factors. Based on pre-clinical investigations and clinical trials, Mucolyxir™ appears to support cilia motion, and liquification and elimination of mucoid substance.
What is particularly surprising is that a single dose ‘fits all’, and not only in humans. From interviews of doctors using natural microdose DNA, the same general dosages a few times a day works for kittens, puppies and horses, as well as for infants, children, and adults. So there is apparently quite a large range of dosages from which these benefits may generate. Increasing the dosage does make a difference to some in terms of achieving greater benefit. For others, the process may be too fast and they reduce the number of drops accordingly.
Dosage: 1 or 2 drops, placed in mouth slowly then swallowed, one to four times per day. To avoid dilution, do not eat or drink for 5 minutes after taking. Additional Usage Notes: Day 1: Take 1 drop every fifteen minutes for one hour. Then take 1 drop every hour until bedtime. Days 2 and 3: Take 1 drop after each meal and before bed (4 times total). Day 4 and beyond: Maintain schedule or use only as needed.
