Functional Medicine Testing
To gain a fully integrated picture for each patient, we analyze full body testing of thyroid, gastroenterology, adrenals, metabolism, Lyme disease and co-infections, MTHFR genetic abnormality, co-infections, chronic viral infection, mold, MARCoNS, heavy metals, food sensitivities, minerals, vitamins, fungal infections, and organ health. We utilize the following labs: Advanced Laboratory Services, ALCAT, CD57, Doctors Data, Genova, Great Plains, IGeneX, Meridian Valley, Serologic Testing, Spectracell, Parasitology Center Institute, Real Time Lab, Galaxy Diagnostics, DNA Connexions, Global Lyme Diagnostics, and others.
Vitamins and Mineral Supplementation
We offer a wide array of vitamin and mineral supplementation to assist the healing process and offer immune support. Oral supplements can be purchased from our clinic or through our distributors. IV vitamin and mineral therapy can be performed in the clinic or ordered through our in-home IV concierge service.
Mold and MARCoNS Treatment
Many health effects are caused by exposure to the interior environment of Water Damaged Buildings (WDB). The complex mixture of contaminents present in the air and in the dust in WDB form a toxic chemical stew. There are so many possible sources of these toxic compounds found in WDB that can lead to the variety of symptoms caused by mold illness.
Mold, mycotoxin, and MARCoNS illnesses are diagnosed through proper lab testing with treatment individually assessed for the individual according to genetic makeup, patient history, and test results.
We offer an IV therapy using Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD). NAD+ is a coenzyme found within every cell to help drive enzymatic reactions forward, initiating revitalization of cellular function. In addition, NAD+ also influences healthy gene expression relating to DNA repair, cell death, and certain anti-inflammatory processes.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
HBOT increases adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and mitochondrial function, decreases inflammation, stimulates stem cell formation, decreases cerebral edema (swelling), supersaturates oxygen in the blood, and increases peripheral nerve regeneration. HBOT is used as a treatment for chronic pain, inflammation, arthritis, neurologic defects, patients who plateau after treatments or relapse, and to kill bacteria. The impact of antibiotic treatment improves with this treatment.
IV ketamine infusion therapy has emerged as a treatment option for a variety of chronic pain conditions including fibromyalgia, small fiber neuropathy, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) and psychiatric conditions including depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). We administer IV ketamine at a slow, controlled rate throughout a typical 40-minute treatment. The dose is calculated according to a patient’s weight and individually adjusted according to the patient’s tolerability.
Stem Cells and Exosomes
Stem cell regeneration is the process by which stem cells are used to regenerate or repair damaged tissue or even organs within the body. Stem cell regeneration has been shown to be effective at healing burns, broken bones, blindness, Parkinson’s disease and many other conditions. Stem cells are thought to be regenerative and mediate repair via five primary mechanisms: 1) providing an anti-inflammatory effect, 2) homing to damaged tissues and recruiting other cells, such as endothelial progenitor cells, that are necessary for tissue growth, 3) supporting tissue remodeling over scar formation, 4) inhibiting apoptosis, and 5) differentiating into bone, cartilage, tendon, and ligament tissue.
Increasingly, exosomes are being recognized as potential therapeutics as they have the ability to elicit potent cellular responses in vitro and in vivo. Exosomes mediate regenerative outcomes in injury and disease that recapitulate observed bioactivity of stem cell populations. Mesenchymal stem cell exosomes were found to activate several signaling pathways important in wound healing (Akt, ERK, and STAT3) and bone fracture repair. They induce the expression of a number of growth factors (hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF1), nerve growth factor (NGF), and stromal-derived growth factor-1 (SDF1)). These are important throughout the healing process.
Low dose naltrexone (LDN) can be used as a part of your treatment regimen in order to boost your immune system and reduce the pain and inflammation caused by advanced Lyme disease. LDN is available orally by prescription, intravenously in-clinic, or through our at-home concierge service.
Pulsed electromagnetic frequency (PEMF) have shown to help open cell membrane channels, allowing nutrients better access to the inside of cells and assisting cells to more efficiently eliminate waste. By balancing the energy of the cell membrane, the cell will be healthier and more resistant to the hidden forms of the Lyme disease in the cell. PEMFs have been shown to increase the diffuse-ability of the blood brain barrier, allowing better access of treatments, supplements, herbs and nutrients into the interior of the brain’s nerve cells. Patients are welcome to book an in-clinic session with our Bemer brand PEMF mat.
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) is a procedure that exposes the blood to light to heighten the body’s immune response and to kill infections. With exposure to UV light, bacteria and viruses in your bloodstream absorb five times as much photonic energy as do your red and white blood cells. We are able to add this process to our IV Ozone therapy.
Heavy Metal Chelation
Chelation therapy is treatment used in conventional medicine for removing heavy metals from the blood. It involves IV injections of a chelating agent, EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid), a synthetic amino acid. EDTA binds to heavy metals and minerals in the blood so that they can be excreted in the urine. Other chelating agents may be used. This is determined by patient evaluation and lab testing.
Our clinic offers various prescribed medications intravenously in-clinic or at-home through our concierge service. These medications include Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), peptide therapy, Intravenous Immunoglobulin Therapy (IVIg), and many more. Please call our office to request an appointment for any IV therapy: (304) 904-0482.
