PHYSICIAN CLIMBS MOUNT EVEREST
WITH NO OXYGEN
Irving, Texas, September 20,1999 — Denis Brown, M.D., 47, a family physician
living in British Columbia, made his third attempt in eight years to climb Mt.
Everest without supplemental Oxygen. This time, adding a potent new antioxidant
to his regime, and despite being older, he made it!
Denis Brown was just an infant when Sir Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa guide, Tenzing
Norgay, first ascended Mount Everest. The mountain continues to be as challenging
to climbers as in the past. Bad weather and treacherous conditions still claim
"On my first trip to Everest in 1991,1 reached 26,000 feet. On my second
trip to Everest in 1994,1 reached 28,000 feet before hypothermia, exhaustion and
total lack of energy forced me to abandon my attempt. This year, I reached the
south summit at 28,750 feet. I suffer from exercise-induced asthma and I was not
using bottled oxygen, so I am very pleased with that achievement."
Everest is the world's tallest mountain with a north summit at 29,028 feet. The
air is so thin near the top of the moun tain, that even the strongest climbers
carry oxygen tanks to help them breath and to protect them from altitude sickness.
During altitude sickness, the decreased oxygen in the atmosphere produces symptoms
such as shortness of breath, headaches and nosebleeds. When the brain experiences
a pathological deficiency of oxygen, called hypoxia, a climber may experience
disorientation, hallucinations and, in the rugged conditions of Everest, almost
In his practice, Dr Brown had begun to use an antioxidant named Microhydrin. He
was impressed with the increased energy experienced by his patients, and with
studies indicating increased cellular hydration, NADH production (energy), and
reduced oxidative stress. He decided to see if this antioxidant would help his
own endurance and oxygen efficiency during the climb.
Dr Brown began taking Microhydrin
two weeks before his departure for the Himalayan Mountains and continued daily
dosages during his climb. "I initially started on four capsules a day, and
increased that to six. Two weeks prior to the actual summit attempt, I began taking
four capsules twice daily" With the use of Microhydrin, he not only climbed higher
than he ever had before, but he felt stronger and recovered more quickly
"There is no question in my mind," says Dr Brown, "that I felt much
fitter and healthier on this trip."
Microhydrin'TM, is a dietary
supplement in the form of an extremely small mineral colloid processed by proprietary
technology with food-grade minerals, to which hydrogen anions have been attached.
Anions are hydrogen atoms which carry extra electrons. Like electrons available
in fresh fruits and vegetables, the electrons in this concentrated form provide
nutritional support to the biophysical characteristics of body fluids. Electrons,
supplied by hydrogen anions, were called "The Fuel Of Life" by Nobel Laureate
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi. They are necessary for optimal cell function, energy, oxygen
exchange, absorption of nutrients, and the removal of toxins. Electrons also support
cell hydration which is critical to the development of muscle tissue, and neutralize
free radicals, such as lactic acid, which tend to build up during exercise or
other forms of stress.
Microhydrin'TM is a registered
trade mark of Royal BodyCare, Inc. (RBC) a subsidiary of GlobeNet International
I Inc. (OTC GNII:BB). RBC develops and markets advanced nutritional supplements
through its headquarters in Irving, Texas and nine foreign offices.
