Carol Ann Ryser, M.D., on Treating Chronically Ill Patients

  [ 1559 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ] • October 31, 2001

Carol Ann Ryser, M.D., is a Board Certified Pediatrician, Board Certified Clinical Analyst, member of F.A.A.P., the American Medical Association, OHM (Orthomolecular Health Medicine), and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. The primary focus of Dr. Ryser’s medical practice is on the prevention of illness and disease. Since 1996, Dr. Ryser has been the Medical Director of Health Centers of America. Previously, she was Medical Director of the International Learning Centers, Director of Mid-American Treatment and Training, a staff member of the Gardner Medical Center, Consulting Staff Member of the Research Medical Center, Assistant Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Kansas Medical Center, Medical Director of the Children’s Rehabilitation Unit, University of Kansas Medical Center, Consultant to the Special Education Department for Orthopedically Handicapped Children, and a Consultant to the United States Air Force in Crete.

Dr. Ryser has published and presented a number of papers in her area of expertise, appearing in such publications as The American Journal for Diseases of Children, the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychology and Pediatrics. Dr. Ryser has been recognized for her contributions in the fields of medicine, science, and mental health, as both a clinician and educator, by both professional and lay organizations.

Transfer Factor Overview

Transfer factors are tiny protein molecules that are produced in the body by immune cells called T-cells. Transfer factors allow the immune system to remember conditions for which immunity has already been established. For example, when a person has been infected with chicken pox in childhood, their body develops a memory of that illness that prevents them from becoming re-infected with it later in life. That is, in the future, the specific immune transfer factor molecule for chicken pox will endow that person’s immune system with the exact ‘blueprint’ of what chicken pox looks like, and under normal healthy circumstances their body will be able to quickly recognize and respond to any possible re-infection.

Many of these transfer factors - or “immune memory molecules,” were introduced to us from our mother’s milk or colostrum, which is the richest source of concentrated transfer factors known to scientists. Transfer factors in colostrum have the sole purpose of transferring immunity from the mother to the baby’s immature immune system. All mammals produce transfer factor, but scientists prefer to work with chicken and normal bovine colostrum. A healthy cow already produces millions of different transfer factors, but when the cow comes into contact with a pathogen such as a virus, it produces a new transfer factor for that specific virus or pathogen.

Since 1998, Dr. Carol Ann Ryser has been using transfer factor as part of an overall treatment program in her practice.

Dr. Ryser: “The diagnosis of a patient is of utmost importance. I perform a series of genetic testing with PCR (Polymer Chain Reaction) that tells me the specific bacteria or virus(es) a patient has. Transfer factor helps support the immune system while treating the specific problems I determine a patient has.

Stress – both physical and emotional, will activate the immune system and 'distract' it to deal with the new stressor that has been introduced. That is why I believe so many college students come down with mononucleosis.

If a patient isn’t getting good results with my treatment regimen, I look at possible coagulation problems, as well as malabsorption difficulties, and gastrointestinal problems. I always begin by getting a patient’s bowels functioning more normally (I address Irritable Bowel Syndrome), so they can properly absorb nutrients.
The body’s cells regenerate every six months, and you need to give the body a chance to generate healthy cells before dramatic improvements in a patient’s overall health can emerge.

The initial reaction to transfer factor in my patients typically includes flu-like symptoms, proportionate to the severity of a patient’s illness. These flu-like symptoms go away, but it is my opinion that they prove the immune system has been activated, and that it is working to suppress the body’s infections. Regarding the safety of transfer factor, I have never had a problem with negative side effects or adverse reactions in my practice. However, I am very cautious -- I perform careful evaluations of a patient’s immune system.

The benefits I have seen in my patients using transfer factor is that their cognitive thinking clears up – no more 'brain fog,' and their energy comes back – they can start doing more, and they can start walking and exercising again.”
