Travolta gala will benefit detoxification project (The Ocala Star-Banner)
31 January 2010, 6:32 am

By Dave Schlenker Entertainment editor As one of the beneficiaries of Thursday's "From Paris With Love" movie gala, the Ocala Detoxification Project has puzzled many locals.

The Paris-themed party will raise money for local deputies, police officers, firefighters and a college scholarship fund. But few in Marion County know anything about detoxification.

Up front, here are some facts:

The Ocala Detoxification Project is designed to help firefighters and other uniformed personnel who are exposed to toxins. It likely will launch with funds from the gala. "From Paris" star John Travolta is leading the local effort. Detoxification is based on a book by Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. It is not, advocates stress, a Scientology program.

Its critics contend detoxification is unproven and lacks necessary medical research.

And Ocalan Ron Chard said it saved his son's life.

"I really believe that," Chard said. "[Detoxification] needs to be brought to people's attention."

His son, Tim Chard, served on the Utah County Major Crimes Task Force, which raids and disassembles meth labs. Tim Chard's throat burned after raids and soon, he said, extreme pain and exhaustion plagued him daily. Severe depression followed.

But after 32 days of detoxification, including intermittent saunas totaling five hours a day, Tim Chard said he is free of pain and depression. It changed his life, he said, and it sent him and other federal agents to Washington, D.C., to "educate" lawmakers about the treatments and push for workers' compensation coverage for detoxification.

Pain can cause exhaustion.  This can lead to depression.  I see nothing unusual about this. 

The human body has an amazing ability to heal itself.  It might be that the problems Tim Chard experienced would have gone away after 32 days without any treatment whatsoever.  But we will never know, because there are no unbiased and peer-reviewed studies of the scientology purification rundown, only anecdotal "testimonials," which are highly subject to influence by the placebo effect.
