  • Dr. Ronald Drucker, B.S.

    My name is Dr. Ronald Drucker, B.S. (M.T.A.S.C.P.), D.C. I am a natural healing practitioner with over 35 years of experience in the healing arts, and over 18 years of experience in eliminating autoimmune conditions.

    My Philosophy from Experience:: Eliminate the root-cause, Autoimmunity, and eliminate 85% of the diseases (conditions) and symptoms currently plaguing mankind.

    If you receive a diagnosis of an autoimmune condition or are experiencing symptoms which are frequently associated with autoimmunity, you must take action and address the root cause, for in the overwhelming majority of cases, the “medical professional” will not.

    The immune system can be viewed as a Highly Sophisticated “doctor within the body” who always knows the perfect path to healing, PROVIDED THAT THE TOOLS FOR HEALING (immune modulating agents) ARE PRESENT within the body.

    About Dr. Drucker

    Abstract: Title: Nitromedicine is a new medical specialty that focuses on developing diagnostic and therapeutic protocols based on modulation of the rheostatic NitroRedox sensitive biochemical pathways to enhance stem cells and manage chronic diseases.

    Attendees will learn :

    1. To avoid potential damaging side-effects of Nitric oxide enhancement add antioxidants such as Thiols, Polyphenols and Vitamins which can neutralize ROS and RNS.

    2. Application of appropriate wavelengths and dosages of light (blue, red or near infrared depending on the exact condition being treated) will dissociate NO from CCO (and other storage sites), restoring mitochondrial ATP production and stimulating healing in many situations.

    3. Detoxification will remove the pathological free radical generators and increases the nitric oxide bioavailability
