In 1975, Dr. James Chappell was doing extensive research into cause and effect relative to disease when he stumbled on what he later coined, The HONSTEC Syndrome.

The HONSTEC Syndrome is actually an acronym for seven common denominators anyone of which can contribute to any disease, to wit:

    (1) Hydration (H) or lack of it.

    (2) Oxygenation (O) or lack of it.

    (3) Nutritional (N) imbalances to    

          include deficiencies and excesses.

    (4) Spinal-Structural (S) loss of  

          nerve flow or conductivity.

    (5) Toxins (T).

    (6) Emotional (E) imbalances and;

    (7) Creative Consciousness (C) or 

          lack of it.

Any one or more of the HONSTEC components can contribute to the cause of any disease, even death. For a more definitive explanation, go to the Events/Article link button above.

"There isn't anything Mankind can do that our  Creator through Nature has not already done. Never underestimate the power of either."

"After 48 years consulting a diversity of people with every condition and dis-ease imaginable, I have concluded the number one reason why sick people do NOT get well is because of their stubbornness. Of all the issues people struggle with, the number one obstacle to their recovery is lack of forgiveness, first in themselves and then in others."

When we do NOT forgive those that we "believe" did us wrong, we create vibratory chaos at a cellular level within us. Vibratory chaos leads to dis-harmony which eventually leads to dis-ease.

Anger, resentment, hatred, lack of forgiveness and more, create strong, negative emotions leading to an acid pH and low cellular oxygen. This reaction is the perfect environment for sickness and dis-ease.

Only forgiveness, including forgiving yourself for whatever you "think" you have done will help you get well. We need to let go and be free to 'be.'

When someone is interested in the health benefits of being a Chappell Health Club Member, they may simply call our office to set-up either an in-person consultation or one over the phone. The consultation including in-depth history normally takes approximately one hour and costs $300.00 which includes suggestions for the best approach for your health challenge or concern.There is a questionnaire to fill out prior to your consultation which will be either emailed or sent to you. 
Upon making an appointment for one (1) hour or more, you will be given a twelve (12) page comprehensive questionnaire. At the time of your appointment, you must return the twelve (12) page questionnaire or email a copy if your appointment is over the phone. All information provided by members is strictly confidential. We do NOT participate in the government's HIPPA program of releasing private information as we do NOT treat patients for disease. We teach our members how to achieve health, wellness and longevity using Dr. Chappell's methods to do so. As he states, "Where health and wellness reside there can be no room for illness. The key to optimum health and wellness is education and taking effect action."
First Visit
When coming to the center, please note, this is an environmental free zone. Please do NOT wear strong perfumes, colognes, body lotions or anything with a scent. Please leave your cell phone in your car as we are trying to reduce electro-magnetic pollution. We will soon have EMF & microwave radiation blocking technology and more.

Upon arrival at the center, you will fill out a new member registration form which will include all your listed health concerns. Please come ten (10) minutes early to fill out this form.

If you have decided to have our *complete evaluation, it will take approximately two hours. Dr. Chappell will perform the following assessments, detections and tests. Costs reflect year or day membership fees.

                  1. Consultation concerning the questionnaire and in-depth history. 60 minutes. $225/300
                  2. Live Blood Analysis Microscopy using ONE drop of your blood. Takes 30 minutes. $150/180
                  3. Toxic Metal Mineral Hair Analysis. Takes 5 minutes. Results return in two to three weeks. $175/225
                  4. Sopia2 Lyme Test. Takes 10 minutes. $55/65

                  5. McKesson 10SG Urine Analysis $25/30

                  6. GE Bone density scan $45/65
                  Total: $675 (+year member) $865 (+day member)

Above all and most importantly, Dr. Chappell knows how the body works and what to do when it doesn't.  At the above visit, he will analyze all assessments, detections and tests to formulate a personalized program or protocol to help you achieve your health goals. If he feels additional tests should be performed, such as outside laboratory blood work, x-rays, etc., or if health products are needed, life coaching, reflexology, IV chelation, orthodics, lymphatic massage, bio-energy correction, etc., he will recommend them.
First Follow Up Visit
If your health concerns can wait before you see us again, your next visit will be in approximately two (2) weeks. At that visit, Dr. Chappell will assess your progress from your first visit recommendations and adjust your protocol accordingly. This should take approximately 30 minutes. Dr. Chappell will then go over your hair toxic metal analysis report (if it has arrived back from the lab), and any outside blood or other tests, if they were ordered. He will then suggest any correction methods or additional detection devices found necessary. This should take another 30 minutes. Total time: 60 minutes.
Subsequent Visits

Depending on what services are required will determine time and costs. You may want or need to see our massage therapist, reflexologist, IV practitioner or Dr. Chappell once a month or once a year. It all depends on your condition, circumstances, and what Dr. Chappell feels is best for you. No two people are the same.
Dr. Chappell was taught to always get to the cause of one's health concern. He was taught to always suggest the minimum amount of products, services, tests, etc., for the maximum amount of benefit. If you need to see us for periodic evaluations, consultations, life coaching, therapies or to acquire products, we are here to serve you, however, Dr. Chappell teaches members how the body works and what to do when it doesn't so you can take responsibility for your health. The more you do for yourself the less others will have to do for you.

Phone Consultation

The majority of our members are from different countries and different United States states. If you are a phone consultation member, we will find someone in your area to provide the services you need.  Dr. Chappell will personally call doctors and practitioners in your area to qualify them. He will not just recommend someone due to their license, education or history. Dr. Chappell believes common sense and logic, critical thinking and intuition are the most important qualities to look for in a doctor or a practitioner. After all, some of the greatest healers in the world NEVER went to medical school or acquired permission by the "state" through a license to help others.

The following is the result of a recent ten day treatment for a stage IV pelvic cancer patient at the Chappell Integrative Wellness Center in Eagle, Idaho.
          Besides an intense diet, botanical and supplemental program, using cesium chloride and a host of other specialized minerals and nutrients, the patient drank ONLY Ellis E5 water, had BEFE and Photon Sound Beam corrections, a SOTA silver pulser and magnetic pulser, a Linquist Ultrasound, a Promolife ozonator, NAD therapy with *Isobiscum solution (*one of my formulations), daily coffee enemas, Epson salt baths, mini trampoline, and FIR sauna. I also determined bone density with a GE Ultra sonimeter bone density scanner. As expected, this person had osteoporosis. Cancer thrives in acid. The body uses buffering minerals found in bone to buffer these acids. This can cause low bone density, osteopenia or osteoporosis.
Here is my letter to my patient.
Dear *********,
Just to recap what was accomplished over the last 10 days of treatment and before.
Prior - Prior to coming to the clinic, you sent in a sample of your hair. I then had a lab perform a toxic metal analysis. The results came back with expectable results. You had high levels of mercury, cadmium and aluminum.
          During our first phone consultation, I asked you what your diet was like. Once you told me you eat tuna, both in a can and in sushi, I anticipated you would have mercury contamination. You also said you had several dental amalgams; silver fillings. Silver fillings are made with mercury. Mercury is highly toxic and hence suppresses the immune system. I suggested you remove your amalgams, which you promptly did. I also asked you to stop eating all ocean fish. Since the Fukashima nuclear melt-down, it appears the Pacific and perhaps the Atlantic oceans are radioactive. Mercury is now the least of my concerns.
          Because you told me, you used to be a chain smoker smoking at least two packs of cigarettes per day, I assumed you would have cadmium. Cadmium is another highly toxic metal that suppresses the immune system. Cancer thrives in a toxic environment where the immune system is not working properly.
          I suggested using activated charcoal and chlorella to chelate these toxic metals and if it did not work, we would start IV chelation. As long as you stop consuming these toxins, you should not have to chelate longer than a first round to remove them.
          Where once aluminum was only found in anti-perspirant and cookware, it is now being sprayed throughout the world in chem-trails. These blooms are NOT con-trails or condensation trails, they are chemical trails with a litany of adjuvants, aluminum being one. This makes chelating almost a life time event.
          I suggested you start VelociTea from the Whole Wellness Club as it is a very subtle detoxifier and chelator. Just a couple of cups a day, and it should keep the aluminum from returning. If they ever stop spraying aluminum in chem-trails, you should be able to stop the VelociTea. Unfortunately, there are over 80,000 known synthetic chemicals being used in the United States including Roundup.    

          The net result of our toxic world is immune suppression and dis-ease, including cancer.
          I find it disturbing to say the least, that none of your doctors every considered toxic metals as a contributing factor in suppressing your immune system allowing you to manifest cancer. It seems you have been everywhere and yet, no one talked to you about hydration, oxygenation, nutrition, toxins, your emotions or even how the loss of nerve conductivity can compromise tissue, organs and glands. Regardless, you are starting a new with me.
                                                                                                             Upon Arrival
Weight - When you first arrived, you had lost a considerable amount of weight. From approximately 130 lbs, you were down to 94.5 lbs. You continued to lose weight until 87 lbs.  We then added a protein shake and beef at dinner. You gained 1.5 lbs in 24 hours.
          Theoretically, if you continue with the shake and beef (the acid from the beef is negated by the cesium), you should continue gaining weight. If you can gain two pounds per week, you could be up to 124 lbs it a little over four months. Cachexia is very common in cancer. The cancer is consuming your fat and muscle and converting it to glucose. Taking my LoGluco is stopping this sugar conversion. It is also starving the cancer cells and lowering your blood and urine glucose levels.
Peripheral Edema - Your left leg had phlebitis or edema. Your doctors thought you may have a blood clot. Your ankle and lower leg were visibly swollen. You were in a considerable amount of leg pain. I made a lotion of all organic coconut, fennel and grapefruit oil. You were given red clover, parsley and dandelion tea. You also had a Epson salt bath twice daily and one colonic and lymphatic massage. Within two days, all the pain was gone and your leg looked normal. It remained that way the entire time you were here. You also used my FIR sauna. This not only activated your sweat mechanism, it detoxified you and reduced your edema. You need to continue having a sauna twice per day until you are cancer free. You can then have a sauna several times per week to keep you healthy.
pH - Your urine pH was 7.0 and went to 7.5 under cesium, rubidium and potassium. As so often happens, as cancer cells die, they release their metabolic wastes including lactic acid which helps other cancer cells survive as they require an acid pH to thrive. Lactic acid is also converted into glucose in the liver and sent back to the cancer cell. You went down to 6.0. We then added sodium bicarbonate to your E5 water. Your urine pH became an 8.0 and then 9.0. This is the kill zone for cancer cells. Most cancer dies in alkalinity.
SO meter - Your oxygen saturation level was as low as 90 and high as 98%. You stabilized to a consistent 98%. The more consistent capillary cellular oxygen the better it indicates oxygen respiration. Cancer can NOT survive in an oxygen environment. It lives through fermentation NOT oxygen respiration. If you keep your oxygen saturation at 98%, your cancer cells will die. This is a kill zone for them. Remember, the more oxygen the more alkaline you will become. The more alkaline you are the more cellular oxygen you will have.
Glucose - On your first day, your blood fasting glucose was 132 to 135. Anything over 110 is a pre-diabetic stage. Anything over 125 is a diabetic stage. I don't believe you are a diabetic. I believe your cancer increased your body glucose as cancer cells require 18 times more sugar that normal cells. With my diet and food supplement program, specifically LoGluco, your glucose reduced daily until your glucose reached 90 to 92. This is a kill zone for cancer cells. Without their food source, they just can live.
UTI - From the first day, you had severe burning felt at the urethra exit. We added garlic, ginger and honey to your night time routine. You still needed to take medication for burning until you started doing rectal ozone. After a few days, the burning reduced to the point where you did not need medication. However, the ozone along with the coffee enemas and rectal implant of NAD caused rectal irritation. You then stopped the ozone and the burning came back. I taught you what you could do when you got home to start up the rectal ozone again. I believe the urethra burning is caused by a kidney urinary infection as shown in your blood. Once that clears the burning will cease. Garlic with ginger are very efficient pathogen killers. The honey tricks cancer cells to gourge themselves on what they think is sugar. The garlic and ginger come with the honey to alkalize and kill the cancer cell.
Bladder - Because of high dose radiation to your bladder, your bladder shrunk and the walls became thick. You lost all bladder capacity which caused a consistent flow of urine requiring wearing diapers. After a few days of treatment, you noticed your bladder was starting to hold urine. You could actually urinate on demand and produce urine samples for me to test. This consistently improved while you were here. It should continue.
Blood - We performed ten darkfield blood tests along with a Lyme test. The Lyme test was negative for Lyme disease. The first darkfield test demonstrated the worse blood picture. You had clumping; RBC aggregation, spicules, parasites, high bacterial count, deformed RBC's and WBC's, no single moving RBC's and little to no cell movement. Each day you improved until the last test which was the best. Almost everything improved including the absence of parasites. You only need to have more RBC's moving as singles and your blood would look excellent. To help you accomplish this, I suggest you do castor oil packs over your liver nightly. I taught you how to do that.
Pain - You came with significant pelvic pain. This is to be expected as your tumor is in the pelvis and you also had surgery and radiation there. Although the pain would come and go, each time you took pain medication, I noticed how lousy it made you feel. You were exhausted, tired, dizzy, lethargic, nauseous and emotional drained.
          I am not talking about becoming nauseous from taking the cesium. I believe this is one reason why you still feel bad. Once you no longer need pain medication, I think you will feel a lot better. Pain medication, along with ALL medication, will contribute to an acid pH. We don't want that. It also causes a reduction in the peristaltic action of the colon. This normally leads to constipation. My herbs are keeping your bowls open. You are also doing morning coffee enemas.
Emotional - We were not able to discuss your emotional issues. Frankly, you were not open to the idea. You still struggle with lack of forgiveness. You have a lot of stored anger and resentment. Your emotional stress has contributed to your illness. I believe until, if and when you resolve these issues, you are still at risk of relapse once recovered. I did suggest learning EFT as found on the Internet and also reading the book, Excuse Me Your Life is Waiting by Lynn Grabhorn. Both will help you tremendously.
Conclusion - Over all, you accomplished a lot over 10 days. I am very happy with the changes I observed. It was touch and go, but if you continue with gaining weight, having a blood fasting urine pH of 8.0 and a glucose of 90, and capillary oxygen saturation at 98%, you will continue to starve your cancer. The body will continue to kill or revert the cells back to normal. I suggest you do everything you were taught and have another CT scan in about three to four weeks. Remember to tell your doctor to differentiate between a live tumor and a dead one in the scan. You may need a cancer marker blood test for more validation.
          Be aware, the last thing that may improve is the way you feel. This is a battle. You may continue to feel lousy until it has been won. Keep in touch. If we need to fine tune your protocol, we can do that in a 30 minute or less phone consultation. I expect to hear great news within three to four weeks.

The HONSTEC Syndrome:                    The Key to Health is Accurate           We Must Start with Forgiving

The Cause of Dis-ease.                            Information & Effective Action.        the Unforgivable.

Five Day Intensive Anti-Aging,

                          *Drug Addiction & NAD Therapy Protocol

The net result of this program will start the extension of your DNA telomeres. Telomers are the "end caps" of the DNA. *As they extend, the signs of aging reverse. The pH of one's urine and saliva should become alkaline at 7.5 with little variation. Blood fasting glucose should be under 90. Capillary oxygen saturation level should be 98% or higher. One's blood under darkfield microscopy should be healthy looking; little to no bacteria, spicules (fibrin), parasites, abnormal RBC's or WBC's, blood "sludge" or clumping. The RBC's should be moving freely in the plasma. The urine analysis test strip test should be negative for all abnormalities.

If the body can be detoxified, with an alkaline pH of 7.5, at 98% oxygen saturation, with glucose at 90 with cells using oxygen respiration instead of fermentation, along with a modulated immune system, the body will rejuvenate itself through telomere extension. The above protocol was created by Dr. Chappell to do just that. This protocol is based on the research of Harvard geneticist and professor, *Dr. David Sinclair and his ten year NAD research clinical trial.

This is a five day intensive program. As of this date, the cost is as follows:
                   5 days of NAD infusion:                         $5,000 (Nebulized with Isobiscum solution + implant)
                   5 darkfield blood tests @ $195                    975 (Monitors treatment)
                   5 BEFE sessions @ $100                              500 (Biologic Electric Field Enhancement)
                   5 Photon Sound Beam sessions $135         675 (Skilling, Rife, Tesla technology)
                   3 Ozone sessions @ $175                              525 (Direct I.V. or implant)
                   5 One hour consultations @$300           1,500 (One-on-one with Dr. Chappell)
                   5 McKesson urine test @$30                      150 (Tests 10 identifiers; pH, ketones and more)

                   1 Sopia 2 Lyme test @ $65                             65
                   1 GE Bone density scan @ $60                     60
                   1 Toxic metal hair test @ $225                   225 (Takes three weeks for results)
                   5 SO meter tests                                           N/C

Chappell Advanced Health & Healing Protocol
Ten Day Treatment Over Twelve Day Stay

Arriving at the Center -
Sunday – At or around 4:00 pm, you should arrive at the Hilton Hotel in Eagle from your location or the Boise airport. Our driver will pick up all health club members from the airport unless they rent or drive their own car. You will then check into the hotel, relax, and eat dinner. A four star restaurant, Bardenas, is located next to the Hilton.

         You will notice a FIR sauna and mini trampoline in your room. Do NOT use either until you have been instructed how to use them properly. There will also be a bag of Dr. Chappell's detoxifying tea. Do NOT drink any until instructed to do so.
         At 7:00 pm, Dr. Chappell will meet you in the lobby of the hotel. You will then join him within the lobby as he presents the itinerary and additional supplies for your twelve (12) day stay.
Daily Routine -
Each morning, Monday through Friday -
Wake between 6:30 am and 7:00 am. Do deep breathing, stretch, yoga, etc.
Jump on trampoline for 3 to 5 minutes as instructed.
Go into FIR sauna for 30 minutes. Drink 8oz of Chappell tea with/without tinctures.
Do 60 cc syringe (warm) organic coffee enema. Hold 10 minutes then void.
Take shower then hot/cold shower 2 minutes. 20 seconds hot then cold. Repeat six times.
Take Epson salt bath 10 minutes. One cup of Epson Salts per tub.
Gargle w/ hydrogen peroxide before busing teeth. Get dressed.
Shuttle to center at 8:30 am sharp! If late, you may call and pay for taxi.
At the Center -
*Eat breakfast, drink vegie juice (16 oz), take all supplements as directed.
Each afternoon -
Have all therapy at the center from 9:00 am to noon.
*Eat lunch, drink juice (16 oz) at center from noon to 1:00 pm. Take noon supplements.
Continue therapy from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

*Eat dinner, drink vegie juice (16 oz) at center from 5:30 p to 6:30 pm. Take nighttime supplements.
Return to hotel.

At Hotel -
Repeat morning routine with trampoline, sauna (8 oz tea), shower, and bath. *No enema.
Take bedtime supplements. Do ozone implant and balance of NAD implant. Hold both for ten minutes each before releasing. If enema is needed, use lemon juice and water.
Be in bed by 10:00 pm. Apply *castor oil pack. Say affirmation. Sleep by 11 pm. No TV.
Castor Oil Pack & Peripheral Edema -
*You will be taught how to do a nightly castor (alternating olive, peanut) oil pack treatment over your liver to detoxify the liver and gallbladder. This is one of the most successful remedies known to do this. If you have peripheral edema (swelling of an extremity), you will need to massage fennel, grapefruit and coconut oil (mixed) into that extremity several times per day. Drink only Ellis E5 water made at the center.

Protocol -
The following protocol was developed by Dr. Chappell and improved upon since 1971. This is the most effective natural healing and natural medicine program ever developed. It addresses the actual cause of dis-ease, The HONSTEC Syndrome. The HONSTEC Syndrome was discovered and named by Dr. Chappell in 1975. He was then and is now on the cutting edge of advanced health and healing.
The HONSTEC Syndrome is an acronym for (H) hydration, (O) oxygenation, (N) nutrition, (S) spinal nerve function, (T) toxins, (E) emotions, and (C) creative consciousness. Since 1975, no researcher, doctor or clinician has been able to disprove that the HONSTEC Syndrome is NOT the cause of all dis-ease. In fact, most do not even know the difference between disease and dis-ease.
Disease is a medical term used by medical disciplines to describe signs, signals and symptoms. Dis-ease is the net result of cellular vibratory chaos leading to dis-harmony and then dis-ease.
Finally, the protocol addresses Dr. Chappell's four (4) step process to overcome dis-ease. It then addresses and corrects the five (5) planks of the Warburg Principle.
Regardless of what you may have been told, if you open the elimination channels, de & re polarize the blood and lymph, detoxify the entire body (this includes mental, spiritual and emotional issues), modulate the immune system, maintain an akaline pH & a 98% cellular oxygenation level thus establishing oxygen respiration, properly hydrate the body, eat only non toxic food, maintain optimum nerve flow and conductivity, and finally discover who you are and why you are here by increasing your consciousness and awareness, the body will heal itself. Period.
Indigenous people throughout the world have been curing themselves of dis-ease since the beginning of humanity. With Dr. Chappell's protocol you may do the same.

Conclusion -
The net result of this program should be the same for most conditions and health challenges. The pH of one's urine and saliva should become alkaline at 8.0 with little variation. Blood fasting glucose should be under 90. Capillary oxygen saturation level should be 98% or higher. One's blood under darkfield microscopy should be healthy looking; little to no bacteria, spicules (fibrin), parasites, abnormal RBC's or WBC's, blood "sludge" or clumping. The RBC's should be moving freely in the plasma. The urine analysis test strip test should be negative for all abnormalities. If you were under-weight, you should gain weight. If over-weight, you should lose weight.
If the body can be detoxified, with an alkaline pH of 8.0, at 98% oxygen saturation, with glucose at 90 with cells using oxygen respiration instead of fermentation, along with a modulated immune system, the body can heal itself. The above protocol was created by Dr. Chappell to do just that.
The Chappell Integrative Wellness Center does NOT focus on or treat dis-ease. We focus on wellness. As Dr. Chappell states, "Where health resides there can be no room for illness."

The foundation of this program is nicotinamide adenine dineucleotide or NAD. Just Google NAD to learn more. There are only 14 NAD clinics in the USA. All are "stick and walk" clinics. None of them offer what the Chappell Integrative Wellness Center offers. Most charge 25% to 50% more for NAD treatment. One charges almost $40,000.

Anyone can treat the signs, signals and symptoms of what is called disease. All you need is a Merk's Manual. Most doctors of all disciplines treat disease be it by orthodox medical (drugs) or alternative (supplements). Unfortunately, treating disease will never get to the cause leading to a real cure. When a cure is not their intention, doctors use the new trigger word, "management." Pain management is really BIG business in this country and in others.

Our Founder, Dr. James Chappell, discovered the real cause of dis-ease in 1975. He named it The HONSTEC Syndrome. He then created a protocol to slow down, stop and reverse this syndrome. He was able to do this because he is a relentless researcher and educator. He uses his natural gift of curiosity, his academic education and most importantly, his unique talents. He even spent over 20 years studying the works of famed intuit, Edgar Cayce learning medical intuition. For those reasons and more, Dr. Chappell is known as the Sherlock Holmes of Medicine. He is a master herbalist, clinical nutritionist, formulation chemist, traditional naturopathic/chiropractic physician with a Bachelor's degree in Science (psychology). He has 48 years experience in natural healing and natural medicine. His specialty is in chronic, severe and so-called "terminal" illness.

To forgive creates a sense of peace leading one to compassion and love. We actually can become sensitive to each other and the world in general. One of the best songs I have ever heard about sensitivity, comes from the voice of a ten year old boy named Declan Galbraith. Although he is grown-up now, Tell Me Why, should bring anyone with a heart and soul to tears. Here is the video. Listen to the words. Watch his delivery and sensitivity. Watch this video over and over again until you feel it in the depth of your being. Our future is dependent on our children correcting the wrongs of the adults before them. It is not too late for this planet or humanity. We may be close to self destruction, but there is still time. Teach your children the truth. Stand up to corruption. Defend those that can not defend themselves. It is time to take back our power and see the world as it can be. A place where we all try to get along in love, peace and joy.

A Recent Cancer Case

In law there is something called, The Vested Interest Doctrine.  Simply, if a witness has a vested interest in the outcome of a trial, they will be disqualified. 

The Internet is filled with information. Most of it is inaccurate and vested. We must first and foremost discern whether what we read passes the common sense and logic test. If the information is found to be true, we are then required to take effective  action. Not just any action, but effective action is mandatory.

One key to optimum health and longevity is learning how the body works and what to do when it doesn't. No one is a better teacher of this understanding, including the definition of disease verses dis-ease, than Dr. Chappell.

Another key is rediscovering our intuitive nature; our ability to "feel" the unseen. Humans have a very difficult time with this concept. Dr. Chappell does not. Take the time to discover this for yourself.

What is NAD?
[Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide]
A Summary
©2019 by Dr. James Chappell

[Disclaimer: Dr. James Chappell is the medical director of the Chappell Integrative Wellness Center in Eagle, Idaho. Among other protocols, it is a NAD therapy clinic. Since 1971, Dr. Chappell has been on the cutting edge of natural healing and natural medicine. He is a medical herbalist, clinical nutritionist, formulation chemist, traditional naturopathic and chiropractic physician, and social worker with a Bachelors degree in science. He is the ONLY clinician to have created a natural solution to transport NAD by nebulization. The solution he developed is called Isobiscum and available only at his clinic.]

NAD (Nicotimide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a co-enzyme responsible for over 100 functions in the body, including production of ATP (Adenosine TriPhosphate) which is the body’s basic energy molecule, immune modulation, cellular detoxification, inflammation reduction and telomere extension. Telomers are the end caps on every DNA strand that degenerate or shorten as we age. By extending them, we can actually anti-age.

Dr. Abram Hoffer, a NAD researcher stated, “Vitamin B-3 exists as the amide in nature, in nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). Niacin was known as a chemical for about 100 years before it was recognized to be vitamin B-3. It is made from nicotine, a poison produced in the tobacco plant to protect itself against its predators, but in the wonderful economy of nature which does not waste any structures, when the nicotine is simplified by cracking open one of the rings, it becomes the immensely valuable vitamin B-3.”

For those who suffer from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, thyroid disorders, and other low energy poly-systemic diseases, NAD deficiency deserves investigation.

Dr. Olberholzer stated, “When there is a deficiency in NAD, or too few power plants in the cells, there will be a metabolic energy deficiency. This metabolic energy deficiency is called a NAD Energy Deficiency (NED). This NED is insufficient chemical energy for life and can be defined as the physical state which develops when the body does not have enough NAD molecules and accompanying energy metabolic cofactors to generate enough metabolic energy on a cellular level to maintain the body in a constant state of health. Such a NED can result in a wide spectrum of NED related diseases. NED mostly manifests itself as chronic fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome, substance abuse, depression, stress, anxiety, permature aging, immune suppression and various other chronic illnesses.”

Depleted levels of NAD+ can create problems for your mitochondria and your cells. It results in low levels of cellular energy and may be one of the primary contributing factors to “mitochondrial dysfunction”. a condition we now know is implicated in a wide variety of chronic illnesses including autoimmune disorders, diabetes, Alezheimer's, dementia, cancer, heart disease, stroke and many others.

Restoring NAD+ levels reverses this process and allows cells to return to full energy status, offering a possible way to undo mitochondrial damage and the resulting chronic illness.

NAD+ as an Anti-Aging Molecule -
Medical researchers have long known that a group of enzymes called sirutins play a crucial role in how the body ages—especially SIRT1 and SIRT3. We don’t yet understand precisely how they work, but what we do know is exciting. SIRT enzymes appear to switch off genes that promote aging such as those that cause inflammation, fat synthesis and storage, skin wrinkles and blood sugar management issues.

Up until now the only way we knew to positively impact these SIRT enzymes was to go on a very low-calorie diet. As uncomfortable as it may be, caloric restriction is one of the few ways that has repeatedly been shown to lead to a longer life.

However, the tide appears to be turning. You see, recent research indicates that NAD+ plays a key role in the creation and activation of the sirutins.

Doctors out of the Department of Developmental Biology at the Washington University School of Medicine were the first to show this link in 2014. The authors note:

“NAD(+) levels decline during the aging process and may be an Achilles’ heel, causing defects in nuclear and mitochondrial functions and resulting in many age-associated pathologies. Restoring NAD(+) by supplementing NAD(+) intermediates can dramatically ameliorate these age-associated functional defects, counteracting many diseases of aging, including neurodegenerative diseases.”

These findings were corroborated in 2016 when the scientific journal Rejuvenation published an article where the authors discussed how low NAD+ levels are DIRECTLY associated with cellular aging, and they emphasized that this process can be prevented by increasing the levels of NAD+ within cells.

NAD+’s Role in Exercise and Endurance -
It is well known that ATP levels get depleted in muscles while exercising. This simply stands to reason. However, until recently we didn’t know how NAD+ was implicated in this process.

A study done in 2010 showed that intense exercise decreases NAD+. When the study participants took an antioxidant supplement containing pycgnogenol (which stimulates NAD+ production and protects it from turning into the inactive, oxidized form of the molecule NADH), NAD+ levels increased and exercise performance and “time to fatigue” also improved.

Using a direct infusion of NAD+ is certainly a more efficient way of raising NAD+ levels than taking an indirect, oral supplement that acts as a stimulator for NAD+. Having a combination of either IV, nebulization, oral consumption and/or rectal implantation, is the best overall way to infuse NAD.

NAD+’s Role in Reversing Chronic Illness and Neurodegenerative Disease -
At the end of the day, health and energy production are intimately related. If your mitochondria aren’t functioning or they are producing too little energy, you are going to experience symptoms. When the problem becomes too severe it turns into illness.

The link between NAD+, energy production, and chronic illness really couldn’t be clearer. Low NAD+ results in low ATP levels. Low ATP levels quickly depletes your cell’s energy reserves. Left unchecked could lead to cell death.

How all of this shows up in your body depends on which cells are being affected -
If nerve cells are affected, the lack of energy may manifest itself as depression, anxiety, fatigue and lack of focus. In severe cases where the nerve cells are dramatically impacted or even die, neuro-degenerative illness like Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS and PLS may manifest themselves. In the worst cases—like mass cellular death—this may lead not only transient symptoms such as tremors, spasms, tingling, numbness and blurred vision, but to permanent, irreversible disability.

If your heart cells are affected, it can lead to cardiovascular disease. If your lung cells are affected pulmonary disorders may present themselves. Basically, when the cells in your organs and tissues don’t have enough energy, illness results.

NAD+ therapy combined with other condtion specific and foundational nutrients can be beneficial in restoring energy production—especially in the nerve tissue—and may even prevent permanent damage.

One 2014 study showed that rat nerve cells pre-treated with high concentrations of NAD+ before being deprived of oxygen survived the challenge and recovered much faster than cells not bathed in the extra protective NAD+.

A more recent review article published in 2015 builds on this. After scientists examined all of the available scientific evidence they recommended NAD+ supplementation and restoration as a new therapeutic opportunity for a wide variety of neurodegenerative diseases.

Some of the conditions that benefited from NAD+ infusion therapy include:

                            Multiple Sclerosis                                Diabetes                                       Premature aging
                            Parkinson’s disease                             Cancer                                          Heart disease
                            Alzheimer’s disease                            Arthritis                                        ALS & PLS
                            Chronic Fatigue                                   Auto-immune disorders
                            Fibromyalgia                                        Circulatory conditions
                            Mitochondrial Dysfunction               Genetic diseases                         Pathogenic infections

Cancer and NAD -
Niacin, niacinamide and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) are interconvertable via a pyridine nucleotide cycle. NAD is hydrolyzed or split into niacinamide and adenosine dinucleotide phosphate (ADP-ribose). Niacinamide is converted into niacin, which in turn is once more built into NAD. The enzyme which splits ADP is known as poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase, or poly (ADP) synthetase, or poly (ADPribose) transferase. Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase is activated when strands of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) are broken.

The enzyme transfers NAD to the ADP-ribose polymer, binding it onto a number of proteins. The poly (ADP-ribose) activated by DNA breaks helps repair the breaks by unwinding the nucleosomal structure of damaged chromatids. It also may increase the activity of DNA ligase. This enzyme cuts damaged ends off strands of DNA and increases the cell's capacity to repair itself. Damage caused by any carcinogenic factor, radiation, chemicals, is thus to a degree neutralized or counteracted.

Researchers Jacobson and Jacobson hypothesized that niacin prevents cancer. They treated two groups of human cells with carcinogens. The group given adequate niacin developed tumors at a rate only 10% of the rate in the group deficient in niacin.

Dr. M. Jacobson is quoted as saying, "We know that diet is a major risk factor, that diet has both beneficial and detrimental components. What we cannot assess at this point the optimal amount of niacin in the diet. The fact that we don't have pellagra does not mean we are getting enough niacin to confer resistance to cancer." About 20 mg per day of niacin will prevent pellagra in people who are not chronic pellagrins. The latter may require 25 times as much niacin to remain free of pellagra.

Vitamin B-3 may increase the therapeutic efficacy of anti-cancer treatment. In mice, niacinamide increased the toxicity of irradiation against tumors. The combination of normobaric carbogen with nicotinamide could be an effective method of enhancing tumor radiosensitivity in clinical radiotherapy where hypoxia limits the outcome of treatment. Chaplin, Horsman and Aoki found that nicotinamide was the best drug for increasing radiosensitivity compared to a series of analogues. The vitamin worked because it enhanced blood flow to the tumor. Nicotinamide also enhanced the effect of chemotherapy. They suggested that niacin may offer some cardioprotection during long-term adriamycin chemotherapy.

Dr. Max Gerson treated a series of cancer patients with special diets and with some nutrients including niacin 50 mg 8 to 10 times per day, dicalcium phosphate with vitamin D3, vitamins A, and liver injections. He found that all the cancer cases were benefited in that they became healthier and in many cases the tumors regressed. In a subsequent report Dr. Gerson elaborated on his diet. He now emphasizes a high potassium over sodium diet, ascorbic acid, niacin and/or NAD, brewers yeast and Lugol's iodine. Dr. Gerson was the first physician to emphasize the use of multivitamins and multiminerals to help cancer patients. When he could discover the actual cause of one's cancer, he had a 100% cure rate.

History of NAD+ -
NAD was first discovered in 1936, but World War II stopped the research. It was patented for treatment of drug addiction and schizophrenia in 1961 in South Africa based on an 11,000 patient study. Sloughed aside with the discovery of methadone, a far more lucrative choice at the time for drug companies, NAD went “underground.”

Research has shown that NAD increases the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters in the brain known to be effective in correcting specific chemical imbalances. Some of these chemical imbalances underpin addiction, mental illness, anxiety, aggression, depression, despair and hopelessness. Fatigue is often the first signal of NAD deprivation; other clues may include depression and anxiety in children. Almost any chronic disease, including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer's, can also be indicative of deficiency.

There is some research and other reports indicating that NAD might be effective treatment for a host of other ailments including schizophrenia, PTSD, chronic fatigue, weak immune system, memory disturbance, sleep problems, concentration defects, blood pressure, poor cholesterol levels, sugar metabolism and diabetes, muscle pain and weakness, joint pain and stiffness, headaches, fevers, sore throats and swollen lymph glands.

Clinical research has shown it is a potent biological antioxidant which can aid in preventing cell damage and a variety of diseases, cancer included.

Dr. David Sinclair, professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School, in a paper published in the journal Cell, describes a compound naturally made by young cells that is able to revive older cells, allowing them to be energetic and youthful again. With adequate amounts of NAD, aging can theoretically be reversed, he asserts. “When we give the molecule, the cells think oxygen levels are normal and everything revs back up again,” Sinclair wrote.

Pondering these claims raises the un-researched theory of whether NAD deficiency might be an unrecognized epidemic disease of our timen and the saving grace for US Veterans suffering with PTSD and many addictional and disorters.

Often NAD deficiency is first evident in brain-related symptoms of poor concentration, difficulty focusing, and attention deficit disorders. If the energy shortage lasts long enough, brain neurons cannot synthesize neurotransmitters. The molecules of consciousness (such as serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline) are affected. Anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance and other mood changes can then arise.

Also important to know is that the crucial enzymes that catalyze the Citric Acid Cycle are inhibited or destroyed by chemical toxins that create oxidative decomposition or free radical damage. Sources of the damage include cigarette smoke, drugs, chronic stress, sedentary living, as well as the accumulation of the myriad toxins found in our daily lifestyle such as in pesticides in our food and chlorine/fluoride in our water.

Along with acquired NAD deficiency, there may also be a genetic disorder that is present at birth. Symptoms can appear in young children as difficulty sleeping, behavioral problems, hyperactivity, impaired concentration, academic stress and underachievement.

Moreover, NAD deficiency that induces fatigue and depression increases a propensity to use drugs and alcohol in order to improve energy and mood – simply to feel better. The self-medicating cycle is a common story reported by many addicts, and leads to even lower NAD. A vicious cycle ensues.

There is some history to using megavitamins as potential cures for addiction, including dating back to Bill

Wilson’s (aka; “Bill W.” the revered co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous) ideas and experience. In 1960, Wilson underwent a major shift in his beliefs about the value of nutrition in achieving sobriety when he met Dr. Humphry Osmond, who introduced him to the concept of megavitamin therapy. Curious, Wilson became a guinea pig, *taking 3,000 mg of niacin dialy. Within a few weeks, fatigue and depression (symptoms of low NAD) which had plagued him for years, were gone.

Seeking to share this exciting discovery, Wilson gave the same doses to 30 of his close friends in AA, hoping it could be replicated. Of the 30, 20 reportedly became free of anxiety, tension and depression in one or two months. This dramatically reduced their alcohol consumption.

Wilson wrote a detailed report called, “The Vitamin B3 Therapy” and distributed thousands of copies as a pamphlet. Because the information was controversial, way ahead of its time and ran counter to the precepts of the 12-Step Program, Wilson became unpopular with the board of directors of AA International and the information was squelched.
