Ocean plasma-for living cells

Ocean Plasma

This substance represents one of the greatest medical innovations of the (20th) century. Harmless, simple and inexpensive, Quinton Plasma achieves today, as it did at the turn of the (last) century, therapeutic results that must be seen to be believed. And they can be seen on this website (refering to a past website--Ed.), thanks to the photos Quinton and his colleagues took in the hospitals where they worked.

Have you ever heard of Rene Quinton? Probably not. Yet this man saved several thousands of children's lives in France and in Egypt at the beginning of this century by using a serum which now bears his name.

Rene Quinton "was the first person to discern and to investigate the similarity between sea water and mammalian lymph and blood plasma systems. He endeavored to solve the mysteries of sea water and its compatibility with living organisms by proceeding to carry out several scientific experiments in hospitals. The results he obtained were dramatically unexpected, since several people who were dying regained their vigor. Rene Quinton worked in collaboration with Drs. Potocki, Mace and Jarricot, and for four years he labored at perfecting his techniques and adjusting dosages. In 1904, he released the results of his hospital experiments in a book entitled, 'L'eau de mer, milieu organique' (Sea Water: Organic Medium). The book was re-issued in 1995 because of the timeliness of its well- researched contents."

In 1921, Dr. Jarricot brought out "The Marine Dispensary" which contained the results of his therapeutic experiments in the treatment of childhood diseases using Quinton's formula.

Hospitals everywhere became aware of Rene Quinton's new therapy and were favorably disposed to its use. Twelve centers for the application of his methods were subsequently established in France, Belgium and Egypt. Unfortunately, the war in Europe put an end to his research and his theories were temporarily set aside. Exhausted by his work, Rene Quinton died in 1925. It was not until the 1980's that French doctors and therapists once again started to investigate his therapeutic approach.

This century-old approach is now widely used in France, Germany, Spain and Italy. A Study and Research Centre has also been established with the aim of making available earlier and current research carried out using Quinton products. Extensive studies are also being made, especially of injectable Quinton Plasma for use in the treatment of severe or advanced diseases, many of which are now on the rise.


Sea water is extracted from a particular location which is situated between 10 meters from the bottom and 30 meters from the surface. This location is called the zone of solar penetration, and is known for its exceptional purity. Isothermic vehicles are used to transport the sea water to the laboratory for processing in less than 48 hours. The bottling in vials and packaging is completed in less than 24 hours under sterile conditions in the absence of any metallic contact or raised temperature in accordance with the original sampling techniques laid down by the physiologist and biologist Rene Quinton and in conformity with present day pharmacological standards as well as those of the G.M.P."

"Sea water tends to maintain its characteristic biodynamism and the molecular balance of a 'living medium'. The entirety of trace elements contained in sea water are to be found in the solution in their active states.


After several years of research, Rene Quinton deduced and proved that sea water could not be extracted from random locations.

The composition of sea water varies as a ratio of its distance from the coastline, according to climate and presence or absence of specific marine vegetation.

He also proved satisfactorily that sea water, which is a colloidal solution, differed fundamentally in its therapeutic effects from the artificial saline solution (water plus salt) currently used.

In addition, he proved that the drying out or desiccation of sea water destroyed it permanently. He showed that it was experimentally impossible to reconstitute sea water out of its dried extract.

Another important factor which he brought to light was that the equilibrium of its pharmaco-dynamic action was totally destroyed in desalinized sea water, that desalinized sea water had no valid therapeutic action. The same goes for artificially isolated trace elements whether as single units, double units, or three at a time. Their action was noted to have minimal effect.

This part of the report relates to the first Quinton family seawater company. It was part of the original copyrighted article and so had to be left in the article.


After several years of intensive research, Rene Quinton assembled his results and had them patented.

The patent designates the following: - The only area suitable for extracting the quality of sea water which is completely compatible with the mammalian organism.

- The methods and techniques for maintaining all the nutritive elements found in sea water in their active state without using chemical additives.

- Bottling and packaging methods.

Quinton International Laboratories SARL is the sole proprietor of this patented process. It is the only laboratory to obtain a permit from the French Ministry of Health for marketing sea water prepared according to Rene Quinton's formula. Only vials and bottles originating at these laboratories may bear the mark "QUINTON" on the glass containers.


Quinton Hypertonic Solution is pure unadulterated sea water in its natural form with its oceanic components. It is extracted and stored under the strict conditions described earlier. Its mineral and trace-element concentration is thus superior to that of universal blood plasma, making it the most concentrated form of Quinton solutions, hence its name: Hypertonic Solution.

Quinton Hypertonic Solution may be taken orally with a little water.

Quinton Isotonic Solution, on the other hand, is produced from Quinton Hypertonic Solution. It contains exactly the same concentration of minerals and trace-elements as blood plasma but its sodium content matches that of blood, hence its alternative name: Quinton Plasma.

Quinton Hypertonic Solution is reduced to isotonicity with the addition of Aqua Fontana (Mont Roucous Spring Water) which has no mineral or medicinal content and is guaranteed to be naturally sterile and free of bacteria.

Quinton Isotonic Solution may be taken orally, injected or used in transfusion. Injections may be administered subcutaneously, intramuscularly or intravenously as required.

To recapitulate, Quinton Hypertonic Solution is the most concentrated form. Quinton Isotonic Solution or Quinton Plasma is equal to blood plasma in its mineral and trace-element concentration. Quinton Plasma can thus never be hypertonic.


Quinton Hypertonic Solution promotes cellular nourishment to a noticeable degree. It is to be used as a regenerating and remineralizing factor, a life-giving essence when there is a need for a concentrated natural supply of all the minerals and trace-elements for the optimum functioning of any organism.

Quinton Hypertonic Solution is recommended for use in order to produce a therapeutic shock effect on the organism, and to induce an almost immediate reinvigoration of depleted organic systems. It is also recommended for use prior to an anticipated drain of energy whether physical, intellectual or emotional.


Research carried out by Rene Quinton and his successors has shown incontestably that, from a scientific and clinical standpoint, Quinton Plasma is identical with the indispensable fluid which sustains the development of life.

Rene Quinton's successors were: - Professor Alexis Carrel (Nobel Prize in Neurophysiology) - Professor A. Bogolometz (Cytotoxic Serum) - Doctor Jean Jarricot (Marine Method) - Doctor Alfred Pischinger (Basic Regulation System)

They all came to similar conclusions, that is to say, that sea water (as is contained in Quinton Plasma) is identical with the liquid inner environment of humans and mammals. This makes it possible, under certain optimum conditions, for isolated cells, tissue fragments and whole organs to survive in this medium.

Modern analytical techniques used by A. Pischinger in 1994 have confirmed what Rene Quinton could only intuit in 1904 in the absence of appropriate technology:

Quinton Plasma expedites the regeneration of the organism either by the speedy or by the gradual substitution of a depleted inner medium by replacing it with a natural and identical equivalent, thus promoting optimum cell development and activity. This Plasma is, par excellence, a physiological serum.


Quinton Plasma may be considered as a valuable adjunct in the medical treatment of these diseases.

4 to 6 vials must be taken regularly every day over a period of many months.

In certain cases, the Plasma should be administered by injection for maximum efficiency. Injections of 30 to 60cc (3 to 6 vials) may be given every second day throughout the first two months. Advanced stages of the disease may require higher doses. Subsequent treatment, when appropriate, may be tapered off from a single injection twice a week to once a week."


Modern advances in Physiology and Molecular Biochemistry" ...have proven the similarity in mineral content of the mammalian inner environment and sea water.

"This similarity makes it possible for any organism to select or reject what it needs in a natural way.

The assimilation or elimination of marine ions is made possible through cellular receptors with a high degree of accuracy by the identifying polarity derived from biocenosis.

Cold-sterilized Isotonic sea water is usually eliminated through the kidneys. This eliminated sea water tends to be twice as concentrated and twice as voluminous as artificial physiological serum.


The advantages of Quinton Isotonic Solution in colonic hydrotherapy:

- Physiological irrigation and cleansing of the intestinal membranes. - Anti-anaphylactic action of sea water. - Reabsorption of micro-nutrients and minerals through the portal vein. - Physiological stabilization in case of insufficient potassium. - Anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic action as required in adjustable doses. - In cases of infection: optimum absorption results - Strengthens the immune system."

"Here is what two highly respected European researchers write about the Quinton Plasma:

From an 1991 article by
Dr. Andre Passebecq, M.D., Ph.D., N.D.
Dr. Jean-Marc Soulier, Ph. D., pharmacist

To maintain a healthy body, homeostasis must be kept constant. Thus a dynamic equilibrium is continuously reconstructed in the face of modifications due to the surrounding metabolism. A healthy organic terrain is the basis of health and conversely diseases develop on a depleted or congested terrain. Upstream of most diseases there is an unbalanced terrain."

"Mineral salts
The four most abundant cations in the body are sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium from which phosphorus cannot be disassociated.
Sodium is the monovalent cation characteristic of extracellular fluid (ECF) and, conversely, potassium is that of intracellular fluid (ICF).
The composition of salts present in the ICF greatly differs from that of ECF but directly depends on the composition of the latter. Their relations are ensured by the ion pumps of the cell membrane.

Interaction and balance of mineral salts

Magnesium can only be used if a balanced calcium-phosphorus ratio exists. Magnesium acts as a regulator of the calcium fixation and serves as a phosphorus carrier. It is therefore an integral part of the calcium-phosphorus complex.

Any calcium-phosphorus imbalance reduces the resistance to illness and therefore enhances susceptibility to diseases, increases fatigue, weakens intellectual faculties and leads to premature ageing.

In addition, an abnormal potassium rate produces a magnesium and sodium imbalance. No salt is independent of the others as they all interact directly or indirectly with the other electrolytes.

Much more than an isolated salt, it is the general equilibrium of the saline matrix of the internal environment which will ensure proper functioning of the organism.

For example, the influence of the different salts on cardiac automaticity evidences their separate involvement: sodium through volemia and its relation to calcium, potassium regulating cardiac automaticity, calcium and magnesium governing muscular contraction, etc.


Seawater is an extraordinarily rich and complex matrix that still possesses numerous unexplained features.

Note first that the structure of seawater remains incompletely known. Indeed, to this day, no model encompasses all its physico-chemical properties. In addition, the elements that compose the marine saline matrix also exhibit specific properties: for example the coefficient of dissociation of salts present in the seawater is higher than that observed in salts dissolved in distilled water, in spite of the simultaneous presence of other salts in seawater. A 33% solution of sea salts, redissolved in distilled water does not exhibit all the properties of natural seawater of the same salinity.

Additionally. most of the constituents dissolved in seawater (except for CaCO3) are far from saturated, irrespective of the importance of the external inputs or the availability of these elements in submerged rocks.

Dittmar's laws show that whatever the total saline concentration, the relative concentrations of the different ions present in the ocean waters with respect to that of chlorine can be regarded as constant. The complex mechanisms governing these concentrations have not been fully explained yet.

Also the issue of artificial seawater reconstitution remains highly complex: chemists have to introduce certain dosage modifications associated with the stability of the elements present at a very low concentration.

The wealth and diversity of mineral salts and trace elements present in seawater are exceptional. Gregory and Overberger have shown that the marine saline matrix contains the 92 trace elements of Mendelev's periodic table.

It includes all vital nutrient salts and trace elements at concentrations ranging from 1 mg/L and 10 mg/L.

It exhibits an important buffering capability, with a pH comprised between 7.9 and 8.3 and a mean saline concentration of 33/%.

Note in particular that all the minerals contained in seawater are at a concentration close to that at which they are usually found in man's internal environment.

The joint study of seawater and internal environment highlights the similarity between the mineral compositions of human plasma and seawater. In addition, the results of treatments involving correctly elaborated water preparations demonstrate the amazing therapeutic efficacy of seawater. How can this be explained ? What are the links between seawater and the vital internal environment ? As a result what is the influence of seawater on the ionic and mineral balance of the organism ?"

Rene Quinton addressed these questions with certain theories about the relationship between seawater and the internal environment of mammals, including man. He concluded that the human organism maintained this rich, life-giving internal environment so closely related to isotonic seawater for the full development of cells.

"He postulated that from the mineral point of view, human and marine plasmas are environments of the same nature. In other words, there is physical and physiological identity between seawater and the internal environment of the organism. Not only do they exhibit very similar mineral compositions, but the particular form, organization and synergy of trace elements and mineral salts that make up the saline matrix of seawater closely resemble those of the internal environment constituents."

After a documented body of scientific observations, Quinton surveyed the possible medical applications of his findings.

"Together with a medical team, Quinton developed for more than 25 years the so-called "marine method" based on "Quinton's Plasma," a marine plasma in the form of an injectable isotonic solution.

The works of physicians Jarricot, Robert Simon, Lacheze, Mace and Quinton rely on the principle of regeneration of the depleted internal environment, on which cells live, by means of purified seawater preparations exhibiting a balanced and complete composition, so as to allow the patient to globally reconstruct his terrain and the cells to find once again the elements they need.

Given the particular period in which these works were published, they mainly cover various types of cutaneous disorders, neurovegetative asthenias, anorexias, acute cachexias, infant diarrheas, deep dehydrations, gastroenteritis, pulmonary tuberculosis, cholera, typhus."

(Of course, in the early 1900's no AIDS existed, cancer was a rarity, auto-immune diseases were 50 years from discovery, and many other "modern day" maladies were unknown .--Ed.)

"Exceptional results were obtained and the findings of these precursors should now be supplemented by numerous other investigations. Their writings and the listed clinical cases demonstrate the great therapeutic attractiveness of Quinton's assumptions and the efficacy of his method.

Marine plasma is a living medium. It is worth pointing out that, basically, living matter differs from mineral matter in its organization and not in the nature of the atoms that compose it. A living cell is much more than the sum of its elements. The mere dosage of components does not suffice in itself to account for the therapeutic effect of marine plasma.

A good illustration of this can be found in the therapeutic mineral waters; except for the elements that are abundant in them, many waters develop their curative power essentially when drawn from the mineral water spring. Due to the preservation methods and conditions used, these waters lose their properties although the constitutive elements remain present.

Hence is there a specific state of these waters when they are drawn? Numerous theories could be devised, starting from the "homeopathic dynamization" whose most probable substratum would be a particular state of the solvent, in this case water.

As a result, how can we envisage the specific therapeutic gain that could result from the use of the trace elements present in marine plasma? The assumption of physiologic identity between human plasma and marine plasma supposes a form of availability particularly well-suited to the needs of the organism.

Resulting from the mineral balance, pH should be restored by marine plasma. German physician Ropffer thoroughly investigated the evolution of body pH in patients to whom he had prescribed hydromarine treatments. He concluded the following:

'For normal and alkaline organisms, an increase in acid values has unequivocally been established. Similarly for hyperacid organisms, a dramatic decrease in acid values has been recorded. No case has remained the same.

It can therefore be stated that in case a global inconstant acidity, a cure of drinkable seawater causes the normal acidity to be recovered. In particular for gastritis due to dietary errors or alcohol and nicotine abuse remarkable results have been obtained.'

Dr. Jarricot wrote:

'Marine plasma is not a serum against such and such illness, but it is designed for the living cell.'

In other words, it is a product which by its very nature primarily contributes to the restoration of health and the suppression of disease and its symptoms.' "
