Nowadays. The therapeutic values of Sea Water as an essential element for life development are fundamentally based on the fact that the quality of organic water is indispensable to maintain the hydro mineral equilibrium of our cells. Paediatrics. It is prescribed by doctors and scientists all around the world for its high salt and natural mineral content. These are nourished by the extra-cellular fluid and the ions that move around them. “Marine Therapy is a cellular nutrition technique that is supported by more than 100 years of clinical use” By Francisco Javier Coll Head of Quinton Laboratories 7 . thanks to current research sponsored by our laboratories carried out by different universities. Respiratory Physiotherapy. Gastroenterology. Quinton’s Sea Water favours the organism’s health by completely renewing and nourishing cells.INTRODUCTION Introduction SEA WATER FOR THERAPEUTIC PURPOSES: THE TARGET CELL Quinton Laboratories markets a product that is unique and exclusive all over the world: Sea Water collected in a special place in the North Sea that undergoes cold sterilization so that none of its properties are lost. whatever rank it occupies on the zoological nomenclature is still a marine aquarium. Dentistry. etcetera. Sea Water’s therapeutic qualities that are extremely beneficial for the human organism had already been discovered in Ancient times by the schools of Pythagoras and Hippocrates. there is now specific data that proves and acknowledges these properties. are born and die in the same water conditions as those in which primitive cells originated. Ophthalmology. where its cells. Gynaecology. Sport’s Medicine. and in the XIX century this scientific knowledge was taken up again by the French Biologist René Quinton. The bioavailability of the ions means that absorption is natural and immediate instead of being harmful which could result in metabolic disorders or poisoning. Allergies. He proved that any living organism. which is based on the fundamental principle: human blood has a very similar composition to Sea Water. Marine Therapy is a cellular nutrition technique that is supported by more than 100 years of clinical use started by René Quinton and has proven to be very effective when treating illnesses related to Dermatology.

For example. an organism. adapting itself to survive the earth’s changing conditions”. Instead of passively being influenced by the surroundings. is still just a marine aquarium. His work culminates in 1904.RENÉ QUINTON René Quinton SCIENCE AT MAN’S SERVICE René Quinton included numerous areas of human knowledge in his work. on any rank of the zoological nomenclature. lead Quinton to base his scientific theory on one universal premise that became his basic therapy: to replenish the damaged cells using Sea Water. This is how he discovers that animal life originated in the sea and despite the different variations throughout time. Illness appears when this basic environment is altered. whose cells continue to live in the same aquatic conditions as those in which the primitive cells lived. Anatomical forms change in order to help maintain the temperature and the saline concentration of the original marine environment. a war hero. he stated that “any change in the extra-cellular matrix altered cellular nutrition”. he was also a philosopher. was “Science de la sensibilité”. which basically means that he combined materialism and spiritualism together in complete harmony. even what was not published. life resists these changes. “Compared with the physical world that obeys stable laws. it tends to preserve its original conditions. a fundamental resource whose mineralization is identical to our own internal ocean. organic matrix) that establishes well founded scientific proof about the therapeutic values of Sea Water. meant that he was considered to be a true scholar and his usual quote in his work. His humanitarian and scientific education. This principle. evolutionism has accustomed us to seeing living matter as a plastic substance modified by the environment. Quinton formulates a new principle that without rejecting evolution shows the end objective of life in all its forms. and a humanitarian of his era. milieu organique” (Sea Water. an aviator. Apart from his studies in Biology and Physiology. a philanthropist. with the publication of the book titled “L’Eau de Mer. Basically. Then in 1897. 11 . as he explained in one of his books.

And indeed. ALL THE ELEMENTS OF THE PERIODIC TABLE. sugars. more elements appear. research at the Coral Gables University (Miami-USA) was carried out using a molar approximation through “neuron diffraction spectrometry”. until René’s suspicions were finally confirmed: Sea Water contains all the elements from Mendeleev´s periodic table and in the same ratio as those contained in our own Internal ocean. This is the most accurate method so far to prove that the qualitative composition of natural Seawater’s TOTUM iono-minerals and concentration contains 83 BIO AVAILABLE elements at biological temperature. As his research continued another five more elements were added. do not exist in the solid phase) are natural chemical-electronic elements.THE DISCOVERY The Discovery SEA WATER.

It obtains the patent to be classified within the pharmaceutical industry and is granted the corresponding permits from the Medicine Agency on the quality of 17 .QUINTON LABORATORIES Quinton Laboratories WORKING FOR HEALTH SINCE 1905. In view of these results. In 1970. the harmonisation of the European Pharmacopoeia and the resulting obligatory adaptation of laboratories meant that the “Quinton Plasma” was gradually phased out. This publication coincided with the establishment of Quinton Laboratories that started to market the famous “Quinton Plasma” in 1905. In 1960. the “René Quinton Association” was set up in Paris aimed at legally defending the famous researcher’s report. under the supervision of the doctor of medicine.). the new “Permits” were established (the Registration of medicinal products) in the VIDAL dictionary (France’s equivalent to the Physicians Desk Reference): “Quinton Plasma” was registered under the number. The first clinic was opened in 1907 where 9. although still within the scope of “food supplements”. In 1921 a well founded clinical report was published “Le Dispensaire Marin” (which is still unquestionable today in experimental terms) on how Quinton Plasma was used in Paediatrics. the United States. René Anrep comes up with “drinkable QUINTON” (QUINTON hypertonic 33%).Sea Water. etc. René Quinton decided to open the Marine Dispensaries that were free. In the meantime. They were seen to get their appetite back and quickly put on weight. milieu organique”. the “Permits” (generic) were converted into new registrations of medicinal products at the WMA – (World Medical Assembly) to identify each pharmaceutical form. In 1979. They soon became extremely popular due to the good results obtained from the Sea Water injection based therapy. “drinkable QUINTON” (QUINTON hypertonic 33%) starts to be marketed as a “food supplement”.

In 2007. Granada and Murcia and also helped different groups in society including seniors and people suffering from Alzheimer’s to improve their quality of life using marine therapy. Another step forward in the Laboratories´ commitment to mankind. > Reconciling family and professional life Quinton aims to reconcile family and professional life and that is why it follows an internal policy focused on its employees and their families. it offers assistance for nurseries. and private medical insurance. The extraction of the Quinton Sea Water using filtration techniques complies with the European Pharmacopoeia guidelines and is strictly controlled to ensure that the plankton is preserved. an extra half an hour for breastfeeding. a flexible timetable.

Korea. Lebanon. including Madrid. etc. including those carried out at Alicante University and Murcia Catholic University recommend using and consuming Sea Water. For the last few years. but also as a food and mineral supplement for people who are under a lot of either mental or physical strain. Numerous professional sportsmen and women are now using Sea Water: First and Second division Football and Basketball teams. Barcelona. Different university studies. China and Japan. and it sponsors the Maratonianos Athletics club in Guardamar (Alicante). Athletics. not only in terms of health to treat illnesses as it has traditionally been used. the International Duathlon of Vilanova and the Marathon of Valencia. Quinton Hypertonic vials and Quinton Isotonic vials have been registered as “food supplements” by the Malaysian Ministry of Health. Elite athletes. including the ½ Marathon of Madrid. In Asia. it has sponsored various sporting races and events. This trade mark registration means that the laboratory can now develop and grow throughout the American continent. Colombia. Cycling. Mexico. in depth research has been done for over a decade now on the properties of Sea Water. Taiwan. Valencia and Alicante. the United States and Latin America. The properties of Sea Water have obtained excellent results in professional athletes who consume it on a daily basis as a food supplement when competing and training. 19 . This international work and recognition of the high quality and good practises is a great incentive for the whole corporate development and growth project. in Sailing. Brazil. These are extremely popular among medical professionals who come to find out more about the properties of Sea Water. in Europe. Quinton Laboratories operate all over Europe. Marathons. This recognition enables it to distribute its products throughout Southeast Asia.

This breakdown affects man through the food that is consumed and according to the majority of nutritionists this is causing new illnesses that weaken the immune system and is producing other different harmful synergies which are depleting the biological basis of the human organism. local produce” to consuming “industrial. 20 . The break down in the food chain in the last fifty years has contributed to damaging the links that it is composed of. there is a second food chain on Earth where all the mineral nutrients that today’s food lacks can be found. Indeed unlike land minerals. In agriculture. However according to studies carried out in the last ten years to find out what nutrients are suitable for us. Luckily. and what is more it is natural because it exists in the oceans.IONIC BIOAVAILABILITY Ionic Bioavailability THE TRANSFORMATION OF MINERAL ELEMENTS In terms of nutrition today. Trace minerals that form on the sea beds and on the land are inorganic due to the fact that they are not digested by living micro-organisms first. even the fish farms use unsuitable feed. it has been proved that a mineral balance is essential to re-establish the internal biological terrain and all round good health. our organism cannot get all the minerals it needs from common food to work properly. global” produce where chemical pesticides and fertilizers or genetically engineered seeds and more recently genetically modified crops are used. there has been a change from consuming “handmade. Moreover the content of each trace mineral varies from one sample to another and does not reflect the same ratios as those contained in the human body. In Livestock antibiotics are now used on mass. herbivores are fed with animal origin fodder. every essential trace mineral in Quinton is present in a perfect synergistic ratio. exclusively aimed at increasing the production.

in the aphotic zone. under the phytoplankton layer to extract the water. As they evolved. mineral composition and temperature.IONIC BIOAVAILABILITY THE SEA: THE NATURAL ALTERNATIVE FOOD CHAIN Animals first evolved in Sea Water. which gives the product an extra natural revitalising pharmacological effect. which has the second best tides in the world. With the help of the sun’s photosynthesis process. It is collected from a specific point in the North Sea. they developed a symbiotic strategy in order to survive. This is how the highest quality Sea Water is extracted. the phytoplankton that is the planet’s biggest biomass produces every single existing mineral which is then transferred to the sea water. 21 . The zooplankton feeds off this “natural marine garden”. absent in the solid phase) are natural chemical-electronic elements that interact in a natural symbiosis with our organism whose fluid mineral composition is identical to that of Sea Water. This marine biocenosis is just the transformation of non bioavailable minerals into bioavailable mineral elements. and in turn generates masses of bio available elements for the human organism. So Sea water provides all the trace minerals and elements needed for cell regeneration and nutrition in a bioavailable way and without any antagonism due to their concentration levels being similar to those of our own internal fluids. and in turn generates masses of bioavailable elements for the human organism. especially in terms of the more critical factors such as being able to maintain a constant pH. The ions (present in the liquid-phase. A suction pump is placed 30 metres down. Their adaptation to life on land was a foundational evolutionary achievement that called for extensive biological progress. up to 17 metres high. The zooplankton feeds off this “natural marine garden”. Quinton Laboratories collects its water here due to the stable balance in the water’s mineral composition. There are huge concentrations of phytoplankton in the Eddies sea where there are huge whirlpools called Vortex.

The effect of all (TOTUM) the iono-minerals naturally enables each cell to recuperate and work properly again. the original genetic code that dominates and controls evolution Indeed. a prebiotic colloidal solution that contains all the organic fluids. immunological. Oceans contain life’s homeostasis. according to studies carried out homeostasis directly depends on the quality of the Internal ocean. The crystalloid mineral synergetic matrix of the extra-cellular fluid is crucial in determining the health of the biological terrain and therefore the health of the person in question and the quantity of minerals and water from the extra-cellular fluid determine how well the cells communicate with each other. Malfunctions caused by membrane depolarisation precede the onset of sickness and ends in disease. all the intracellular information. Cellular nutrition and communication are established through the Extra-Cellular Fluid E. The nephron excretes twice the water and solid particle volume when it is treated with Sea Water compared with when it is treated with conventional saline. Therefore the mineral and prebiotic element content of Sea Water re-establishes all round cell performance.C. and any change to this causes malfunctions in the control mechanisms (temperature. vascular etc. Sea Water’s genetic. Oceans contain life’s homeostasis. The different concentrations of Sea Water help to balance cellular nutrition for isotonia and also promote it for hypertonia. the original genetic code that dominates and controls evolution. 22 . Furthermore Sea Water is the oldest communication system between living cells and as the cells are not in direct contact with each other.

When reading the genetic map. 23 . animal and human cells that carry all the information needed for growth and cell division. the “zinc finger” proteins are directly related to the metal. The similarity between human blood and Sea Water makes complete cellular regeneration possible. The metal or protein bond produces this three dimensional formation that is strengthened by the presence of structural water. molecular and revitalizing solvent. That’s why consuming Salt Water can rebalance the organism right from the base: by regenerating the cells. These chromosomes have information about the genes. their total absence or excess however inhibit the element. it does not «forget» the information that is dissolved in it. life processes and how the specific minerals are assigned governs each one of these entries in the genetic code. The ionic equilibrium of the composition of elements must be maintained. the organic compounds and genetic material stored in the Sea Water form a biological information matrix that helps us when there is a cellular deficiency and detoxication. There are chromosomes in plant. Therefore Sea Water is the ultimate universal. The minerals. molecular and revitalizing solvent. such as copper or potassium (in fact there are more than 13 elements involved in this process).

VOMITING AND DIARRHOEA The diarrhoeic.GASTROENTEROLOGY If we study the clinical use of Quinton Plasma isotonic sea water probably its best therapeutic results have been in treating conditions within the gastroenterological speciality. Current advances in physiology and molecular biochemistry help us to understand that the mineral identity of the two environments (our own Internal Ocean and that of Sea Water) and their common origin enables the organism to NATURALLY choose or reject what it needs. • Increases immunity • Balances the endocrinal intestine system. diarrhoea and vomiting processes are symptoms of or caused by dehydration both in children and adults. As is explained hereinafter. HYDROTHERAPY COLON THERAPY The proportion and number of minerals identified in Sea Water up to now (84 elements from the periodical table) confirm everything that was included in René Quinton’s paper “L’Eau de Mer milieu organique” in 1904. Isotonic Sea Water is a natural and effective remedy used to counteract these symptoms as it naturally re-establishes the equilibrium between the minerals lost in dehydration and restores the normal physiological water concentration of around 62%-66% in the faeces. the following can be done: Take two Quinton Isotonic 24 vials every two hours until there is an improvement. the benefits of QUINTON Isotonic for Colon Hydrotherapy are: • The lining of the intestine is washed out with saline. 45 . successful results are obtained in inflammation related pathologies (don’t forget that sea water is an anti-inflammatory) and dehydration related pathologies. If the patient has the above-mentioned symptoms. which are all treated with isotonic sea water based on the principal of homeostasis. • Replacement of micro nutrient minerals through the portal vein.

HOW CAN THIS EFFECT BE REDUCED? There are 3 types of treatment: -Increase the amount of protection enzymes. abnormal deposits of aluminium have been found in the brain tissue. The first two concepts are basic: 1. These changes are accompanied by an overload of the extra-cellular matrix. and how do the environmental factors affect it? The xenobiotic compounds from heavy metals (chemical products that have hormonal effects) are unconsciously absorbed through the skin. through breathing or ingestion and cause this overload. this overload then alters the gene expression. The question is: can a genetic abnormality be expressed through a pathological change of our “internal ocean”? Of course it can. There are environmental factors. • They promote the increase in free radicals and/or prevent them being neutralized. For many of us many of the concepts about degenerative diseases. in Alzheimer’s. • They modify the depolarization of the neuron membranes and on a long term. 73 . we are going to use two examples Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. are unclear. 2. Various environmental factors are involved. they are expressed and abnormalities appear. especially neurodegenerative diseases. our “interior ocean”. There are genetic factors.NEUROLOGY THE CONCEPT OF DEGENERATIVE DISEASES. especially the Glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and the SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD). Although the two concepts are extremely different they cannot be separated and we are going to explain why. They promote the appearance of a disease. Nowadays the only product that contains enough of these two enzymes is Fermented Papaya. In Parkinson’s disease damage to the grey nuclei is accompanied by the accumulation of lead deposits. These heavy metals act in various ways: • They block the enzymatic chains • They create inflammatory or neighbouring immune reactions. and according to Hay. if however our “interior ocean” is altered in any way. This means that in normal conditions certain genes are not expressed. their structure.

Perilla oil contains 66% of ALA. which is essential to produce long chains. This just a summary of what is currently known about the matter and there are of course many other alternatives Dr Marco Francisco Payá Torres Medical Director of Quinton Laboratories. -Clean our “internal ocean”: In this case we use cold micro filtered sea water that not only “washes out” the extra-cellular matrix but also contains 78 minerals and measured trace elements that enable ALL THE ENZYMATIC REACTIONS TO OCCUR normally. A study done on elderly Japanese citizens proved how effective it is. This is due to more Omega 3 being incorporated. Firstly there is the risk of absorbing the heavy metals and then the effectiveness of distilled fish oils has not been proven. The ALA accumulates in the triglycerides. 74 . There are two problems with fish oils.NEUROLOGY -Make the neuron membranes more flexible.

Only sea water provides all the minerals and trace elements needed for the 2 phases of bone regeneration. What is more they are bioavailable and do not have any adverse effects as their concentration is very similar to that of our own internal fluids. The organic phase involves the secretion of the collagen matrix that supports the minerals. and densitometry is a very primitive method that only measures the mineral phase. But we have forgotten a basic physiological concept: “bone duality”. I often say that a bone is like a building in which the supporting structure crumbles away little by little (the concrete) and the only thing that is used to hold it together are unsuitable bricks. a mineral that people generally lack.

Perhaps the glycoside reserves are mobilised/ supplied so that they are available on demand.SPORT’S MEDICINE Some of the data available from doing studies on athletes includes: The most significant increases on the graphs are those of sodium. Chlorine is seen to increase as it is present in the sodium which is contained in the drinkable Sea Water. Sodium is very important to control hyponatraemia in athletes. The increase in bicarbonate suggests that the product is like a blood buffer that helps to control the cellular acidity. as it prevents the depletion of the intracellular ion that then decreases the intracellular dehydration. (Head of Department of Army Physiology at the Catholic University San Antonio of Murcia) 94 . The increase in the blood sugar is very significant in a product that does not have it. Furthermore. On the whole. which would partly explain the so-called recovery mentioned by athletes. after the test it does seem that Sea Water provides the organism with an ionic pool that can be used whenever it is necessary.
