He proved that any living organism. there is now specific data that proves and acknowledges these properties. 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. Sport’s Medicine. which is based on the fundamental principle: human blood has a very similar composition to Sea Water. Ophthalmology. 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. The bioavailability of the ions means that absorption is natural and immediate instead of being harmful which could result in metabolic disorders or poisoning. and in the XIX century this scientific knowledge was taken up again by the French Biologist René Quinton. It is prescribed by doctors and scientists all around the world for its high salt and natural mineral content. Quinton’s Sea Water favours the organism’s health by completely renewing and nourishing cells. Gastroenterology. Dentistry. thanks to current research sponsored by our laboratories carried out by different universities. 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. These are nourished by the extra-cellular fluid and the ions that move around them. where its cells.

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

Every litre of Sea Water contains an average 300 milligrams of prebiotic carbon derivatives. 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. which means that it has to be diluted with low mineralization spring water. As his research continued another five more elements were added. that is made up of the different organic liquids such as: extra-cellular fluid. vitamins. etc. he discovered that Sea Water contained 15 elements that were classified in Mendeleev´s periodic table. 13 . They work together on a natural symbiosis with our organism. as clinical studies progress. France). When René Quinton began his studies. and he suspected that all of them were present.

Quinton carried out his study on all species: fish. the dog comes around. The dog is dying. due to being so delicate. For 8 hours a 10 kg dog was given 10. Quinton started to use his therapy in hospitals in Paris. mammals and birds. are difficult to keep alive in an artificial environment. teachers and distinguished heads of hospitals. >> A dog is completely drained of blood through the femoral artery. someone who had been poisoned with oxalic acid. In all cases the white blood cells immersed in sea water continued to show all the signs of normal life. René Quinton used his sea water treatment recording observations that enabled him to fine tune a “method” with the help of a few young keen doctors. The first experiment was carried out in 1897.The discovery The experiment Experiments had to be carried out to prove that when diluted into isotonic water Sea Water is identical to the human “internal ocean”. always had unexpected effects: those at deaths door are often saved. without any problem. The dog is named “Sodium”. In a recent study. 104% its weight. which was then called Quinton Plasma. Professor at Alicante University in the Biotechnology Department. concluded: “I am convinced that white blood cells survive longer than the 96 hours counted up to now when kept in the Isotonic Quinton Solution” 15 . losing the corneal reflex. René Quinton went on to study the white blood cells which. gets up and the next day walks around the laboratory. reptiles. It is injected with Sea Water for 11 minutes: the reflex comes back.

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 . In 1979. organic matrix). In 1996 it sets up the International Quinton Laboratories whose head office is in Alicante (Spain). René Anrep comes up with “drinkable QUINTON” (QUINTON hypertonic 33%). In 1982. the United States. René Quinton decided to open the Marine Dispensaries that were free. The first clinic was opened in 1907 where 9. Jean Jarricot. In view of these results. At this time. “drinkable QUINTON” (QUINTON hypertonic 33%) starts to be marketed as a “food supplement”. milieu organique”. In 1904 René Quinton published his most important work “L’Eau de Mer. Egypt. René Anrep had already designed the double-ended vial and the equipment needed to pack the product. At this time René Quinton’s work was especially focused on children: those suffering from atrophy and/or from enteritis cholera actually recovered after the first few injections of Sea Water. In 1960. Belgium. In 1970. NL 5735 and “Quinton Duplase” nasal spray under the number: NL 5736. under the supervision of the doctor of medicine.902 injections were administered a month. This publication coincided with the establishment of Quinton Laboratories that started to market the famous “Quinton Plasma” in 1905. etc. In 1973. These registrations were then abrogated by the WMA and expired 1995. the harmonisation of the European Pharmacopoeia and the resulting obligatory adaptation of laboratories meant that the “Quinton Plasma” was gradually phased out. although still within the scope of “food supplements”. the “Laboratories QUINTON–OcéanThérapie” starts a new course of action. In 1989.Sea Water.QUINTON LABORATORIES Quinton Laboratories WORKING FOR HEALTH SINCE 1905. Clinics were then set up all over Paris. the “Permits” (generic) were converted into new registrations of medicinal products at the WMA – (World Medical Assembly) to identify each pharmaceutical form. 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. 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. They soon became extremely popular due to the good results obtained from the Sea Water injection based therapy. They were seen to get their appetite back and quickly put on weight.). In the meantime. the “René Quinton Association” was set up in Paris aimed at legally defending the famous researcher’s report. in other provinces and even in other countries (Great Britain.

Last year it sponsored and promoted numerous studies at the Universities of Alicante. 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. In 2007.

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. and what is more it is natural because it exists in the oceans. there is a second food chain on Earth where all the mineral nutrients that today’s food lacks can be found. Luckily.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. local produce” to consuming “industrial. The break down in the food chain in the last fifty years has contributed to damaging the links that it is composed of. exclusively aimed at increasing the production. herbivores are fed with animal origin fodder. our organism cannot get all the minerals it needs from common food to work properly. 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. Indeed unlike land minerals. In Livestock antibiotics are now used on mass. However according to studies carried out in the last ten years to find out what nutrients are suitable for us. In agriculture.

As they evolved. 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. especially in terms of the more critical factors such as being able to maintain a constant pH. This is how the highest quality Sea Water is extracted. 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. The zooplankton feeds off this “natural marine garden”. A suction pump is placed 30 metres down. The ions (present in the liquid-phase. the phytoplankton that is the planet’s biggest biomass produces every single existing mineral which is then transferred to the sea water. and in turn generates masses of bioavailable elements for the human organism. This marine biocenosis is just the transformation of non bioavailable minerals into bioavailable mineral elements. they developed a symbiotic strategy in order to survive. in the aphotic zone. up to 17 metres high. Quinton Laboratories collects its water here due to the stable balance in the water’s mineral composition. under the phytoplankton layer to extract the water. With the help of the sun’s photosynthesis process. The zooplankton feeds off this “natural marine garden”. It is collected from a specific point in the North Sea. which gives the product an extra natural revitalising pharmacological effect. There are huge concentrations of phytoplankton in the Eddies sea where there are huge whirlpools called Vortex.

Sea water has the total iono-mineral homeostasis which means that the genes can be read. such as copper or potassium (in fact there are more than 13 elements involved in this process). The connection between the physical. expressed and transcribed correctly. the “zinc finger” proteins are directly related to the metal. The minerals. their total absence or excess however inhibit the element. Zinc only works in the presence of other elements. Therefore Sea Water is the ultimate universal. life processes and how the specific minerals are assigned governs each one of these entries in the genetic code. 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. molecular and revitalizing solvent. it does not «forget» the information that is dissolved in it. animal and human cells that carry all the information needed for growth and cell division.

How Sea Water is used to treat certain illnesses and the different clinical tests involved are covered in the following pages. We try to show that Sea Water is not intended to “cure” the illness but rather reestablish our organism’s homeostasis as any alteration in this can give rise to endless pathologies. which means that numerous illnesses can be treated with marine therapy.

• Absorbed more in infectious processes. 45 . 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. As is explained hereinafter. 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. which are all treated with isotonic sea water based on the principal of homeostasis. (When there is a risk of hypokalaemia). diarrhoea and vomiting processes are symptoms of or caused by dehydration both in children and adults. VOMITING AND DIARRHOEA The diarrhoeic. • Physiological balance of the K+. controllable. • Anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic action. 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. • Sea Water’s anti-anaphylactic action.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. successful results are obtained in inflammation related pathologies (don’t forget that sea water is an anti-inflammatory) and dehydration related pathologies. • Replacement of micro nutrient minerals through the portal vein. • Increases immunity • Balances the endocrinal intestine system. If the patient has the above-mentioned symptoms. Twice the volume and concentration of what is eliminated with artificial saline solution is eliminated through the kidneys with Cold sterilised isotonic Sea Water.

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

The ALA accumulates in the triglycerides. 74 . Perilla oil contains 66% of ALA. This is due to more Omega 3 being incorporated. -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. which is essential to produce long chains. Firstly there is the risk of absorbing the heavy metals and then the effectiveness of distilled fish oils has not been proven.1% of myristic oil. A study done on elderly Japanese citizens proved how effective it is. 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. And it enhances the performance of the two first treatments. There are two problems with fish oils.NEUROLOGY -Make the neuron membranes more flexible.

It is well known that administering pharmacological doses of Calcium stops Magnesium being absorbed. Dr Marco Francisco Payá Torres Medical Director of Quinton Laboratories. The mineral phase needs Fluorine. more recently vitamin D and some modern molecules. As men also suffer from osteoporosis more than just oestrogen and progesterone are needed for this matrix to be secreted properly. and Magnesium. The organic phase involves the secretion of the collagen matrix that supports the minerals. But we have forgotten a basic physiological concept: “bone duality”. Copper. Fluorine has now been forgotten and so have hormones which were formerly used to counteract the development of the disease but due to the risk of tumours are no longer being prescribed. Treatment for osteoporosis includes taking calcium. 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. Calcium. Only sea water provides all the minerals and trace elements needed for the 2 phases of bone regeneration. a mineral that people generally lack. 79 . 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. Zinc.
