Acupuncture is one of the oldest, continually practiced forms of medicine in the world as well as being one of the most researched medical disciplines. Acupuncture can help to relieve the stagnation of qi and blood. This stagnation is viewed as the primary cause of pain and disease in Traditional Chinese medical theory. With the use of acupuncture needles, the body’s flow of energy is enhanced and balance amongst the many organ systems is achieved.
Biotherapeutic drainage is a philosophy and methodology of healing which has been practiced in Europe for more than 100 years. This is a wonderful, gentle but very deep acting modality of healing.
Chelation therapy is administered to prevent or reverse heart and artery pathology derived from diminished blood circulation. The chelating agent, called Calcium EDTA, removes toxic metals, improves circulation, enhances the immune system and inhibits the creation of “free radicals”.
Clinical Nutrition examines the relationship between diet and health. This therapy will analyze and maximize the patient’s diet for proper bioavailability and utilization for optimal health. Specific diets may be recommended and treatments may include nutritional supplements such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other nutraceuticals.
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Dome Infrared Sauna
Infrared waves can penetrate the skin surface to a depth of about 6 cm. This result in a deep sweat normally attained through prolonged periods of rigorous exercise. Underlying toxins may be exuded from the deep sebaceous glands as well as the normal sweat glands. This leads to deep cellular detoxification and has numerous health benefits.
The therapy pumps the body full of electrons and helps to change the electrical potential of cell membranes.
Unhealthy cells such as cancer cells have a membrane potential of around 20mV while healthy cell membrane potentials are around 90-100mV. The therapy increases the charge in the body and helps to change the membrane potentials. When the membrane potentials are changed then proper nutrients can make their way into the cells and can regain proper functioning. This increases the energy in the cells, helps people to heal quicker and increases overall vitality and energy.
Each session involves sitting on the machine for 1hr. For chronic diseases, it is recommended that patients have a session daily for 4 weeks.
Infrared Diode Laser Treatment
This Infrared Diode Laser Treatment delivers specific frequencies to the body and can neutralizes infectious agents and heavy metals in the body.
This treatment has been shown to have high success rates for the treatment of Lyme Disease and other chronic infections.
This can also be used to deliver homeopathic remedies to the body and other healing frequencies.
This therapy involves administering vitamins, minerals and homeopathics directly into the circulatory system for a rapid therapeutic effect. The intravenous route can achieve high serum concentrations that increases the absorptive capacity at levels that cannot be attained with the oral route. These nutrients supply the body with potent antioxidants, they will bind and remove toxins and heavy metals from the tissues and set up a healing environment within the body.
Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide
Our bodies produce Hydrogen Peroxide intracellularly naturally which aides in a wide range of natural processes; such as: immune regulation by helping to destroy dangerous foreign invaders, hormonal regulation, and it’s a key player in the production of cell energy and blood sugar. In addition, Hydrogen peroxide helps decrease premature aging through its oxidative capacity.
Glutathione is the main antioxidant in the liver. All cells can synthesize glutathione, but the highest concentration of glutathione is in the liver. Glutathione is a tripeptide composed of glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine that is needed for phase I and II detoxification in the liver and supports to the immune system. It provides antioxidant protection for the body’s tissues including the arteries, brain, heart, liver, lungs and skin.
LED Light Therapy
LED light therapy is simple, safe, and non-invasive and has the powerful ability to support the body’s innate healing capacity. The LED Light Therapy increases circulation, decreases pain and inflammation in tissues, helps regeneration of damaged tissues, improves lymphatic activity, increases bone mineralization, improves immune response, helps repair blood vessels and enhances cell repair.
Local Hyperthermia is therapy that utilizes unique patented dual output electromagnetic technology that delivers thermal and non-thermal current to tissues through a series of capacitive and resistive electrodes. A very high deep local heat is produced between the electrodes. Tumor cells are unable to handle this level of heat, tumor cells by nature are heat sensitive therefore this therapy leads to tumor cell death, while healthy cells are strengthened by the heat and unharmed by the therapy. This therapy also stimulates vasodilation, therefore increases blood circulation and metabolism of the tissues which assists in moving broken down cells out of the body. The alternating voltage generates a movement of electric charge in the form of ions inside the tissues and restores its cell membrane potential.
New Manual Articular Approach
New Manual Articular Approach is a manual therapy modality that applies a comprehensive approach to the treatment of joints. It integrates all aspects of the joint including the nerve, artery, bone, capsule, and ligaments, as well as visceral and emotional connections.
A nerve only functions correctly when it is able to move freely within its surrounding structures. The modality of Neural Manipulation facilitates nerve conductivity and intraneural blood supply for local and systemic responsiveness. By understanding the detailed anatomy of the neural manipulation, one can clearly see the potential for pathological change when nerves are restricted.
Neural Therapy involves the injection of local anesthetics such as Procaine or Lidocaine into nerve sites, acupuncture points, scars, muscle trigger points and other tissues to relieve pain and dysfunction throughout the body. The local anesthetic increases blood flow to the area and repolarizes the deficient cell membrane potential so the autonomic system is corrected. This is an advanced modality that was been used widely by European physicians for over seven decades.
Neuro-Emotional Technique reveals negatively-charged stressful responses that are stored in your body and helps release them. It’s fast, it’s easy, and it can dramatically improve your health.
NeuroViscero Regulation Therapy
Neuro-Viscero Regulation Therapy identifies and removes the causes of regulatory imbalances in body.
The body is all about regulation. Every cell, organ, system of the body needs to be able regulate itself, in order to heal itself and be in a state of homeostasis. All health issues or disease are a result of an overload of certain toxins or stressors that affect the nervous systems regulation. If our body is unable to regulate properly then we cannot compensate for these various toxins or stressors.
Matrix Repatterning is a process of detecting and releasing significant tension patterns within the tissues of the body. These patterns are created primarily by forceful injuries to our body structure, or from scar tissue resulting from surgery or injury.
Mesotherapy originated in France in the 1950s and has now spread around the world. It is the practice of injecting small amounts of nutrients, vitamins and homeopathics into the middle layer of the skin called the mesoderm to bring about healing properties to the treated areas. People from all age groups can have this procedure done. There are very few contraindications to having this done. Mesotherapy is used to treat a wide variety of conditions including acute and chronic pain, scar therapy, bone and joint disorders and skin disorders.
Our immune system can identify and destroy malignant cells, therefore a dysfunctional immune system can leave a person more susceptible to cancer. Mistletoe stimulates the body’s immune system which inhibits cancer cell growth by surrounding the tumour with immune cells, thus preventing the spread of the cancer without harming healthy tissues. Mistletoe activates the body’s immune system, allowing the body to play an active role in the healing process.
Orthomolecular medicine, as conceptualized by double-Nobel laureate Linus Pauling, aims to restore the optimum environment of the body by correcting imbalances or deficiencies based on individual biochemistry, using substances natural to the body such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements and fatty acids. The concept is using larger than usual doses of certain nutrients can actually prevent or cure disease.
Ozone has been used worldwide in medicine for over 125 years with dramatic success and safety. Ozone is three atoms of oxygen attached together, or O3. Ozone therapy provides oxygen to the body which increases the total amount of oxygen available to the tissues. Ozone enhances circulation throughout the body; stimulates oxygen delivery to cells, tissues, and organ; activates the immune system; and is germicidal, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral.
Prolotherapy (Ligament Reconstruction Therapy)
Prolotherapy or ligament reconstruction therapy is a recognized orthopedic procedure that stimulates the body’s nature healing processes to strengthen joints weakened by traumatic or over-use injury. When ligaments or tendon attachments are stretched, torn, or fragmented, the joints become hypermobile and painful. Traditional approaches with surgery and anti-inflammatory drugs often fail to stabilized the joint and relieve this pain permanently. Prolotherapy, with its unique ability to directly address the cause of the instability, can repair the weakened sites and produce new fibrous tissues, resulting in permanent stabilization of the joint.
Total Body Modification
Total Body Modification is a very sophisticated system of kinesiological testing that enables the practitioner to discover imbalances or blockages impairing optimum health and function. TBM is able to evaluate, reset and rebalance internal organs and most of the known body functions by stimulating reflex points located along the spine which will correct imbalances of functional physiology.
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI)
In the process, a small amount of blood is removed and then the blood is run through ultraviolet lights. The healthy cells remain intact while the disease cells are killed and become antigenic. This enhances the body’s ability to produce antibodies, allowing the body’s natural immune system to burst into action against even the most stubborn (antibiotic resistant) bacteria or virus. Then the body works with a new supercharged immune response, greater oxygenation and a balancing of the system.
In order for our body’s to function optimally, all of our vital organs need to be able to move. Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that works through the visceral or internal organ systems to locate and release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that lead to pain and dysfunction. This therapy allows us to identify and treat organ dysfunction and set up a process that enables the body to heal itself.
