Depressed, confused, her left leg dragging --unable to recall where she had been an hour before --Jonette remarkably suffered nearly three years of gradually intensifying symptoms before one of her already-healed coworkers in the Jersey Guard, Tom McGhee, lead her to NY Detox. Like Tom, Jonette had been exposed at the Fresh Kills landfill in Staten Island, beginning a few days after 9-11, as military and civilian workers carted the rubble of the World Trade Center to its temporary grave.
Her story helps us understand just how toxic was the residue of ground zero . . . and conversely, just how effective has been the L. Ron Hubbard conceived detoxification strategy of the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project. The procedure is based on sauna, exercise, and vitamin, mineral, and oil supplements, on gradually cleansing the body of the heavy-metal (lead, mercury) and toxic-organic (PCBs, PBBs and others) residue of burning buildings built before the EPA and OSHA excluded these toxins. Substances that stun-gun key enzymes in all cells and which can deregulate ( "confuse, " disrupt) the sophisticated internal regulation of the immune system can clearly, in these cases, provoke pathology in individuals with both acute, high-level and chronic, lower-level, exposure. Yet the federal government and the City of New York have not stepped-up to the plate --with the exception of a Sanitation Department contract due largely to the courageous support of City Councilwoman Margariat Lopez. And those governments, plus the sorely underfunded US military and Veterans Administration medical establishments have continued to largely slough-off these men and women, leaving the healing to the altruism of the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project.
In Part 2 of this series, Major Sean Donahue, http://www.opednews.com/articles/life_a_fritz_ru_060506_healing_the_heroes_o.htm
worked in the still burning rubble of the WTC for 36 hours on 9-11 and 9-12-01, his exposure direct, acute and almost immediately disabling. By contrast, Jonette Kraft spent 7 weeks at Fresh Kills landfill, never directly digging into the debris, but working nearby, exposed chronically and diffusely through the particulates and vapors thrown up into the surrounding air --those sparkles and glitters that so fascinated her. Yet, like the poor suffering workers and residents of lower Manhattan (many of whom require this detoxification), her command structure told her, "oh the air 's fine, don 't worry about it. " After a few days of the 7-week tour, to which she gladly responded to serve her country in its time of need, she and her coworkers were told that protective clothing and breathing masks were no longer necessary.
Yet Jonette 's diffuse exposure led to a lesion on her spinal cord --perhaps Multiple Sclerosis, perhaps an abnormal benign or incipient malignant growth. It 's impossible to know, since the only sophisticated diagnostics performed in three years were two MRIs. Regardless of the pathology, of which a variant of MS is certainly possible, the two MRIs spanned the period before and after a portion of her detox therapy. The result: THE SECOND MRI CLEARLY SHOWED THE LESION (whatever its cause) SHRINKING. And while we could speculate/hypothesize for pages upon pages regarding why and how this therapy works, the point is THAT IT DOES . . . and that there are still so many more sick people who need it.
Imagine your own white blood cells --T Cells and others --invading the barrier that separates them from the brain, then sending out destructive (cytotoxic) micro-corrosives to eat away the beautiful white, shiny insulation covering of your nerve fibers, leaving ugly pock-marked holes. Like a satellite-imaged field hit by successive bombing runs, with time, more and more destruction would create a pathological area large enough for an MRI to see. Such was possibly the situation in Jonette 's spinal cord.
And why would this improve? Because given the chance, the human body 's self-healing capabilities will manifest --if the body can be freed of its toxic burden. And traditional-medical mechanism notwithstanding, that is clearly, and exactly, what the L.Ron Hubbard detoxification protocol accomplishes. The "miracle " of Sean Donahue 's current life as computer-network specialist and officer in the Guard and of Jonette Kraft 's fulfilling life as landscape architect, wife, and mother bear full testimony to that reality.
