TIM GUILFORD, M.D. received his Medical Degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. He trained in surgery for 2 years at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland and completed his training at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is Board Certified in Ear, Nose and Throat, Head and Neck Surgery.
In Clinical Practice since 1981, Dr. Guilford was also Director of Biological Information System Clinical Laboratory specializing in Allergy and Immunology testing until 1993. His areas of medical interest include the treatment of allergies and chronic illnesses. He uses Homeopathy and nutrient support for chronic illnesses.
Over the last 10 years Dr. Guilford has focused on the role of toxic metals in chronic illness, and this has lead him to become an expert in the role that glutathione plays in chronic illnesses. Glutathione decreases with age and chronic illnesses, and plays a key role in several systems that are critical for the maintenance of health. Low glutathione levels are associated with chronic inflammation, which prevents efficient immune function, and diminishes the ability to remove toxins.
Recent research shows that glutathione is deficient in children with autism, as well as in cystic fibrosis and adults with Parkinson's disease. Toxins such as metals can disrupt a cycle critical to the production of glutathione. While there are reports of benefit with intravenous glutathione, until now there has not been a good way to get glutathione into the system orally.
Dr. Guilford's interest in glutathione has lead to the formation of a liposomal glutathione product called ReadiSorb™ Glutathione. More information is available at www.Readisorb.com.
