For W/C Attorneys

Welcome to our website!

As the Medical Director of Sacramento Medical Group, I’d like to introduce you and your Work Comp clients to a unique service that is only available in Sacramento, California. We call it Detoxination® in order to differentiate it from detoxification, as it reduces the body burden of lipophilic, or fat-soluble, xenobiotics (heavy metals, Persistent Organic Pollutants, and synthetic chemicals).

Workers who are injured on the job by acute or chronic chemical exposures benefit greatly by this modality, which I have been effectively administering in my clinics and around the world for over 35 years. Your active-duty and retired military clients, or clients from industries such as mining, agriculture, chemical production, construction, manufacturing, healthcare, firefighting, transportation, and textiles have likely been chronically exposed to toxic substances that kill or deteriorate their health slowly and silently.

It has been reported that 160 million occupational diseases are diagnosed per year. Most of these occupational diseases are caused by chemical agents. Common workplace toxic exposures include: asbestos, benzene, arsenic, ammonia, chloroform, zinc, lead, mercury, iodine, formaldehyde, hydrogen peroxide, uranium, and many more.

Chronic workplace chemical exposures have now become the eighth leading cause of death in the nation. At least 1 in 10 cancers – and this is a conservative estimate – are the result of preventable and predictable workplace exposure. Cancer now ranks as the leading cause of death among firefighters, according to the International Association of Firefighters. More people face a risk of occupational cancer today than at any other time in history. Unfortunately, however, most of them are just not aware of it.

Our niacin-based sauna therapy has been recognized both scientifically in peer-reviewed studies and subjectively by patients who, in most cases, report a 78-100% improvement in their symptoms.

Our program’s effectiveness has led to court rulings, including a review by California’s Supreme Court that “established it as a compensable form of treatment under Worker’s Compensation law” (Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, January 1, 2001).
See Kyles v. WORKERS’COMP. APPEALS BD., 195 Cal. App. 3d 614 (1987).

I ask that you review the research, information, and case studies on our website.  Case awards should include treatment, and we are happy to discuss our service fees to include with settlements.

You can download our brochure to provide your clients from the link at the bottom of the page.

If you’d like to have a tour of our facilities or learn more about this life-saving treatment for your clients, please give me a call at 916-366-0999.
