Ocean water has many inexpensive and efficatious therapeutic uses.
Because of the striking similarity between Isotonic Ocean Water and internal body fluids, notably the blood, diluted Ocean Water has been called by various names:
Hypertonic Seawater is, of course, the pure undiluted solution that comprises our oceans.
Because of the possible involvement of a medical protocol in the use of Ocean Plasma, the following information is meant for Health Professionals only.

Historically, Ocean water (plasma) has had, and can have, numerous possible applications. All of these therapeutic uses are based on the same concept of renewing, purifying and regenerating the internal fluid environment, as well as maintaining vital equilibrium.
Historically, OCEAN WATER is the best support and regenerator for all cell mechanisms.

HYPERTONIC OR ISOTONIC Seawater SOLUTIONS
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Seawater Hypertonic Solution is suitable for all except those who suffer from high blood pressure, a heart condition, kidney disease, eczema or psoriasis. In such cases, Isotonic "OCEAN WATER" should be employed for several weeks and then one can switch over to hypertonic solution.
"OCEAN WATER" Isotonic Solution is also recommended for elderly people. 10 ml per day is usually sufficient but sometimes two may be needed.
The general dosage is as follows:
Océan Seawater NASAL SPRAY 150 ml Flask
Some people mistakenly believe that this nasal spray contains a mixture of water and salt. This, however, is not the case. Salt is highly irritating to the mucus membranes and it has no anti-inflammatory or healing properties. The spray contains Isotonic Solution.
It can be used at any age: by infants, children, teenagers, adults and elderly people. Press down the nozzle gently to release the spray.
Chronic sinusitis: Spray 3 to 4 times a day into each nostril. Avoid milk, beer, sweets and junk foods.
RECOMMENDED DOSES of ISOTONIC Seawater solution for the treatment of ECZEMA, HIVES or RASHES, PSORIASIS and other related skin diseases
1 - If taken orally (by an adult)
When the lesions have disappeared, gradually taper off the number of mls taken
until complete healing has occurred.
External application of ginkgo biloba cream to psoriasis blemishes will help fade them more rapidly.
2 - If injected (subcutaneously or intravenously or intramuscularly)
Seawater Isotonic Solution is available in boxes of 300 ml and containers of one (1) liter.
Rene Quinton's shock treatment for psoriasis (subsequently used successfully by many physicians) is as follows:
Subcutaneous administration in the retro-trocharterian area
6 weeks of treatment.
The improvement is spectacular, the lesions fade away without the use of standard medical treatment.
In the light of the results obtained, the dose should be adapted to the patient's individual response as follows:
Where there is mild persistence of symptoms, the initial treatment may be repeated
after a pause of 2 months. To ensure that adequate and appropriately correct nutrition is obtained, it is recommended that the patient consult a knowledgeable Health Professional (not necessarily nutritionist).
From 1952 to 1957, the French physician Jean Montfort studied over 600 clinical cases of this complaint as part of a medical team. Results of his research revealed that improvements tend to appear after the first injection as well as the third week. Dr. Jean Montfort treated his patients exclusively with OCEAN WATER without the addition of corticosteroids or antibiotics.
He emphasized the absence of iatrogenic side effects in using OCEAN WATER as well as the surprising results obtained. Many of these patients showed no signs of relapse after 20 years.
Depletion of the IMMUNE SYSTEM
In all instances of recurring infections, no matter what type, or in cases of frequent antibiotic administration, regular intake of one of the "OCEAN WATER" Seawater Solutions can rebuild a depleted immune system. In view of the established fact that OCEAN WATER regenerates the internal terrain, without diagnosis, being non-specific, one would be tempted to ask whether this substance would not be of great value in cases of AIDS and related diseases!
Infants under one year:
From 2 to 5 years of age:
5 years and up, children, adolescents and adults:
HYPERTONIC and ISOTONIC Solution in cases of ACUTE or CHRONIC FATIGUE
Where the fatigue is temporary and has only just recently arisen:
If the fatigue is more deeply rooted and has reached a more debilitating phase:
recovery is complete.
In all cases of chronic fatigue, it is imperative to exclude the following from one's diet: peanut butter, alcohol, all forms of sugar (even natural sugars) excepting fresh fruit (i.e. no dates, no figs, no raisins, no prunes etc...). It would be wise to consult a Health Professional who is familiar with a natural and living diet in order to ensure adequate and nourishing nutrient quality and quantity.
BONE and JOINT DISEASE: GROWING PAINS in Children, ARTHROSIS and OSTEOPOROSIS in Adults
"OCEAN WATER" Hypertonic Solution is a powerful reminalizer and is, therefore, particularly suitable in cases of bone and joint disorders. In such cases, however, it must be remembered that wear and tear on bones and joints have occurred slowly over long periods and, consequently, the remineralization process will also be gradual. Adults suffering from arthrosis or osteoporosis should consider taking the Solution regularly over a period of 6 months to a year. An increase in bone density is observable using densitometry after only 6 months of treatment.
Growing pains in children:
Arthrosis and osteoporosis:
ENHANCEMENT of ATHLETIC TRAINING
"OCEAN WATER" Hypertonic Solution may be taken as an effective supplement to promote endurance in sports.
2 to 3 weeks before a sports event:
During the period of competition:
After any major physical effort:

PREGNANCY, LACTATION and REPEATED SPONTANEOUS ABORTIONS
"OCEAN WATER" Hypertonic Solution is an excellent fortifying supplement and nutrient for both mother and child during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
1) With no particular complication:
2) Serious fatigue or anemia during Pregnancy:
3) REPEATED SPONTANEOUS ABORTIONS
Continue to take Seawater Solution throughout the pregnancy.
In all cases of repeated spontaneous abortions, take a blood sample to ensure that the Serum Fe is normal. The daily diet should be analyzed to ensure levels and quality of optimum nutrition.
NOSEBLEEDS IN CHILDREN
It is imperative to exclude alcohol, peanut butter, all forms of sugar, even natural sugars, excepting fresh fruit (no dried fruits, no dates, no raisins, no figs, no prunes etc...)
The dietary habits should be reviewed with a health professional.
6 drops - about 20 minutes before breakfast for 3 months.
In cases of vaginal infections, hypertonic seawater (10 ml) can be used as a vaginal douche, using suitable traditional douche equipment, from 1 to 3 times daily, according to the severity of the condition. Retain the liquid for about 15 minutes lying down before getting up again.
CANCER, LEUKEMIA and MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
OCEAN WATER and the Seawater therapy itself constitute a valuable adjunctive therapy in the medical treatment of these diseases. While it is certainly not organ-specific, it does normalize cell electrolytes, pH values and mineral imbalances as well as increase overall vitality. OCEAN WATER has a rapid beneficial impact on the entire body system.
Therefore, it should not be discussed as a specific cancer cure but be seriously considered for its great regenerating potential.
Any therapy for degenerative diseases should always be combined with a wholesome, LIVING, RAW and saltless diet. Any cooked and processed foods would only hinder the process of healing. A competent practitioner in natural nutrition should be consulted even before starting the OCEAN WATER Seawater therapy or any other therapy.
In certain cases, the Plasma should be administered by injection for maximum effect.

HYDROTHERAPY of the COLON using Ocean Water
Modern advances in Physiology and Molecular Biochemistry make it easier to comprehend the great similarity in mineral content of the inner environment and sea water with their common origin. This similarity makes it possible for any organism to select or reject what it needs in a natural way.
The assimilation or elimination of marine ions is made possible through cellular receptors with a high degree of accuracy by the identifying polarity derived from biocenosis.
Cold-sterilized Isotonic sea water is usually eliminated through the kidneys. This eliminated sea water tends to be twice as concentrated and twice as voluminous as artificial physiological serum.
TOTAL OSMOSIS OCCURS BETWEEN THE PLASMA AND THE INNER FLUID ENVIRONMENT.
The advantages of Seawater Isotonic Solution in colonic hydrotherapy:
(9‰ - this is 1/3 of normal salt/mineral concentration of original seawater)
Using Marine Plasma SLIGHTLY DILUTED (21‰ - i.e.2/3 normal salt/mineral concentration of original seawater):
Seawater may be used exclusively for the entire Colonic Hydrotherapy session. Alternatively, the fluid may be used only in the final stages of the irrigation.
The almost 100 year clinical history of the OCEAN WATER ensures the high quality and safety of the product.
"Ocean Water" and MESOTHERAPY
Mesotherapy is defined as:
"Method of treatment with sub-cutaneous injections from several small needles".
MESOTHERAPY USING OCEAN WATER
Dr. Pistor, who created the method of mesotherapy, defined it as: A special means for the intradermal introduction of a water soluble drug into the system. This definition reinforces the theory behind the technique for the administration of OCEAN WATER. The technique advocated the use of cold-sterilized Isotonic sea water for sub-cutaneous administration.
Mesotherapy introduces small quantities of active ingredients usually transported
by an artificial physiological serum.
The superiority of OCEAN WATER over synthetic serum has been clearly demonstrated by abundant clinical bibliography. Such a bibliography indicates all the advantages that may be acquired by a practicing "Mesotherapist" in using cold-sterilized Isotonic sea water.
The clinical practice of rehydration has been in existence for almost a hundred years and the best way to carry it out is by "Hypodermoclysis". Nowadays, this application is coming back into use after having been unjustifiably assigned to medical oblivion.
Specialized medical journals reflect this trend accurately.(l)
The aim of Mesotherapy is "to bring the remedy as close as possible to the site of the disease." This method must, therefore, take into account the advantages of using cold-sterilized Isotonic sea water.
These advantages include the following:
The topical action of OCEAN WATER has already been demonstrated particularly in dermatology: in the treatment of psoriasis, eczema, rashes and burns.
In cases of psoriasis, the clearing up of lesions is significant. It takes only a few days for a distinct improvement in pruritis to be observed. The method involves administering small 1ml doses intradermally around the lesions. Cleansing the lesions with Seawater Hypertonic Solution is recommended as the next step.
As a vehicle for the transportation of active ingredients, the Plasma replaces synthetic physiological serums.
Dr. Bernard Guez (2) perfected the technique of tumescent percutaneous hydrotomy which was used in 80 000 instances of medical treatment. The technique is the best example of the therapeutic role of water using cold-sterilized Isotonic sea water for its carrier effect. Where Seawater Isotonic Solution is concerned, this method is also directed towards:
In articular Mesotherapy, the principal function of Seawater Isotonic Solution is to provide a remedy for "dysirrigation", in particular, processes of bone deterioration such as arthrosis and osteoporosis, or to improve anoxia of the tissues.(2)
The topical application of the Solution to the affected areas makes it possible to provide healing elements which will regularize the condition of the lesion.

STANDARD PROCEDURE TO CARRY OUT INJECTIONS OF ISOTONIC OCEAN WATER
At the start of a series of treatments, injections (subcutaneous, intra-muscular, or intra-venous) are usually given every second day - 2 or 3 times a week.
In case of terminal stage patients and cholera, they are given twice a day up to ten days in a row. The injections are then reduced to 2-3 times weekly. As the situation improves, injections are given less frequently, however they should not be abandoned too soon.
For children over five, adolescents and adults, the injections usually start at 25-30cc and are gradually increased to 50, 75, 100 or even 200cc if the response is not entirely satisfactory. In case of eczema, the dosages should always remain low. High dosages will cause strong adverse reactions. Cholera and patients in terminal stage require a high starting dosage, typically 2 x 250cc per day. For children under five, the dosages start at 20cc.
When health state improves, the injections may be given only once or twice a week. Even if the illness symptoms have disappeared, the treatment should not be discontinued immediately.
The effects of isotonic injections are reproduced here, from Rene Quinton's files...
According to Doctors Jarricot, Rene Quinton and others, the effect of an Isotonic Plasma injection lasts about 12 hours. In the following first, second or third hour, the patient may get chills, which may be strong reactions or completely absent or anything in between.
The body temperature occasionally rises from 1 to 2 degrees Celsius during the 4-5 hours following the injection but it then drops below the original temperature. Thirst is also to be expected and therefore appreciable quantities of water (1-3 liters or quarts) could be consumed by the patient. Lack of appetite, slight headache, or nausea are among the possible after-effects of the injection. However, these reactions should not be of any concern, since the improvements which follows these reactions will be proportional to the time of progressive recovery.
Twenty-four hours after the injection, the patient may feel tired but an improvement clearly shows up in the next 36 to 48 hours. This improvement will persist and intensify on the third and fourth day. In certain cases, it may even be spectacular. On the fifth day, the patient might feel a bit down again. That is when the second injection is given. The cycle will repeated again but the adverse reactions will gradually diminish while the improvements rapidly increase.
In many cases, important recoveries were observed after the third or fourth injection. Wounds and ulcers start to heal. Eczema stops to ooze, dead skin starts to peel off etc. Although the symptoms of illness have completely disappeared, the injections should not be interrupted at once. They should be continued for one or two more weeks and given again, from time to time, depending on the patient's state.
SOME CAUSES OF FAILURE TO SHOW RESULTS
An analysis of the failures of Rene Quinton's therapeutic methods shows that:
ORIGINAL ISOTONIC SEAWATER INJECTION PROTOCOL
The above is today's treatment protocol. What follows is René Quinton's original Protocol...
« The marine treatment which we have practiced in the Parisian hospital services
(St. Louis, Beaujon, Hotel-Dieu, Tenon, Maison Dubois, Pitie and the Asylum of Mouleau) consisted of injecting our seawater (now available as OCEAN WATER) which we reduced to organic isotonic consistency, per dosage for this mixture, to one hundredth to one hundredth and a half of the body weight.
The first injections I practiced (July - August 1897) were intra-venous injections. In my absence, in a desperate case of cirrhosis, death being anticipated for that same day, a temporary intern obtained complete success after a sub-cutaneous injection of my preparation which he administered without any hope. The patient left the hospital on his own two weeks later.
I don't provide my formula as being final or the best one could use. I thought one had to inject the isotonic way in order to avoid unknown or troublesome factors, however I learned from physicians of the Marine Service who have had excellent results from simply injecting my preparation in its natural form (now available under the name of Seawater Hypertonic Plasma - a revitalizing dietary supplement). This practice would have the advantage of reducing by two thirds the volume to inject - a comparative experience would have to be tried. I limited the dosage to one hundredth or one hundredth and a half of the injection volume because it seemed to me that this dosage (same concentration as human plasma) was sufficient to produce the immediate effects of a double or triple dose, however, it is not established that a stronger dose by itself would have any advantages, which I have not had the occasion to observe.
The quality of the liquid to be injected provided more precise observations which could be summarized with finality. It no use to contemplate the composition of an artificial seawater. It must be treated according to my protocol and reduced to approximate organic isotonicity (available now in the form of Seawater Isotonic Plasma).
An injections is followed by a reaction that lasts about twelve hours. At a certain variable moment (one hour, two hours or three hours after and sometimes even while performing the injection itself if it is done slowly), the patient will feel chilly, sometime violently so, with chattering teeth and more or less intense thirst. Body temperature will rise without interruption during four or five hours (about 1.5 to 2.0 degrees C) and then will come down as it came up to finally stabilize below the initial temperature. The thirsty patient will drink 1 to 3 liters of water. He typically has absolutely no appetite, may have some nausea or slight headaches. The more this reaction is felt the more benefit will be derived from the injection. In any case, it is not to be feared regardless of the weakness of the patient or his initial temperature. In the case of febrility, when the temperature before the injection is 39.5 degrees C, it can rise to 41.5 C and even remain for six consecutive hours at 41 degrees C without the slightest inconvenience.
Twenty-four hours after the injection, one finds the patient generally down, due not only because of the crisis which just happened but also due to the resulting partial insomnia. The improvement is however evident by certain symptoms that begin to clearly show, in favorable cases, around the 36th hour or the latest on the second day. The improvements are constant and are progressive during the 3rd and 4th days. One can witness sometimes a veritable resurrection of the patient. Striking by its suddenness: all pain or uneasiness that may have been present before the injection have left; strength returns; appetite - non-existent before the treatment - becomes exaggerated with sudden hunger and the patient, bedridden for weeks, arises and walks around for several hours.
On the fifth day, in the morning - complete change. The scene is dominated by the same general weakness as prevailed before the treatment, except in acute cases where one injection suffices to produce a definite improvement. A second injection is therefore administered. The described cycle of effects occur once again but with more pronounced improvements.
The injections are spaced out in this natural manner for five, six, seven, eight days - according to the benefits that are obtained.
The difficulties which I had to face, when the Arcachon station could no longer send me the seawater that was treated according to my protocol, have successively interrupted many of my [clinical] trials. As a collective group, my preparations nevertheless seem to have proven to be a powerful adjunctive therapy. In three particularly grave acute cases, infectious gastro-enteritis of indeterminate nature, oxalic acid poisoning, advanced liver cirrhosis, success was immediate and complete. In the case of syphilis, one early malignant syphillitis and one advanced case, the injection was followed, right from the second day, by very rapid healing of the lesions which covered the patient's body. In one case, healing was mostly complete after seven days. We obtained the same results in cutaneous tuberculosis.
The therapeutic action of seawater is therefore evident. Future trials should measure and evaluate it further.»
