Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Bioidentical  Hormone Replacement

Bio-Identical hormones are the safest way to replace hormones like estrogen and progesterone due to aging.

There are two reasons to give hormones, the first most common reason is medically to treat symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats in women or sexual dysfunction in men. The second reason is for longevity meaning prevention of chronic disease and healthy aging in a person without symptoms.  The preferred route for delivering these hormones is with a cream or an intramuscular shot in the case of testosterone.

Restorative Injection Therapy

Prolozone ™ and Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments

Prolotherapy is the use of medical grade ozone gas injected into painful knees, shoulders, hips, elbows, wrists, feet, and back to reduce pain and restore function. It is a safe, natural, and most often a permanent treatment for osteoarthritis of the knees, shoulders, spine, and hips; along with rotator cuff injuries, tendonitis, carpel tunnel syndrome, elbow pain, heel pain like plantar fascitis, and thumb arthritis, among others. I have had tremendous success with this therapy for treating chronic pains and sports injuries.

HCG Weight Loss Program

HCG Weight loss

HCG is a safe and natural hormone given in very low dosages to burn fat when a low calorie diet is maintained. This diet is not stressful to the body and is a healthy way to lose weight rapidly. My patients report that they have good energy and minimal food cravings while on the diet because the Hcg will mobilize fat reserves for energy. A simple injection is administered by the patient just under the skin with a very small needle.

chelation therapy for heart health

Heart Health

Chelation Therapy

Chelation therapy refers to a treatment using an intravenous solution containing EDTA to remove toxic heavy metals like lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, and aluminum among others. Chelation is an FDA approved form of treatment for heavy metal poisoning. EDTA is a special amino acid that acts like a magnet to bind metals that get stored in the fatty tissue, bones, and organs of the body. An excess body burden of these metals can lead to many health problems like autoimmune diseases, arthritis, neurological problems, and heart disease. DMSA and DMPS are other chelating agents used in addition to EDTA to detox the body of toxic metals.

EDTA chelation therapy has been widely used by alternative health care practitioners for the treatment of heart disease. This is an off-label use of this medication, which refers to the use of a medication for purposes other than what is specifically approved for by the FDA. This is a common medical practice with most drugs on the market today because doctors have decided a particular medication can benefit patient care beyond its state FDA approval. Most alternative doctors, including myself have seen clinically the benefit of EDTA chelation for the treatment of heart disease but is not FDA approved for this purpose.

Allergy Easy Program

Allergy Drops

Allergy drops are a permenant solution for environmental allergies. The drops desensitize the immune system from reacting to harmless substances in the environment. They are similar to the allergy shots but in a drop form that you do everyday. The drops have proven to be more effective, convenient, and faster acting than the shots. No testing is required because i use a universal serum of environmental antigens. Anything that you could be allergic to just about anywhere is covered in this serum. It is the easy way for treating allergy symptoms.

intravenous nutrition lake tahoe

Intravenous Nutrition

IV nutrition allows for a therapeutic concentration of vitamins and minerals that could not be achieved via the oral route. These nutrients include high-dose vitamin C (40 grams), magnesium, selenium, zinc, calcium, manganese, chromium, B vitamins, glutathione, and alpha lipoic acid. IV nutritional therapy supports the immune system and detox pathways, along with improving cellular energy.

Most of my cancer patients swear by this treatment for helping them to recover from chemotherapy treatments. My influenza patients are typically 80% better the next day after an IV treatment with high-dose vitamin C. Chronic infections like Hepatitis C are well controlled with IV therapies among other chronic viral infections. Neuropathy, chronic fatigue, and environmental toxicity are treated with IV therapies.

Botanical Medicine

Medicinal plants are the oldest form of “drugs” or health care used by humanity, their use is older then recorded history. In fact, most of modern pharmaceutical drugs are derived from plants. Plant medicine is more compatible to the human body then modern drug therapies and in most cases offers a better treatment approach for a wide range of medical diseases. I have no problem with modern drugs, they have there place in medicine; it is just a limited one.

With botanical medicine, plants offer additional benefits separate from the intended focus of treatment unlike the side effects of modern drugs. Plant medicine can be used in a liquid, capsule, or tea form. It is very important when using plant medicine that the best quality plants are used, most herbal medicine sold on the market today is poor quality and can cause more harm then good.

Natural Pharmacy

My medicinary includes only the best pharmaceutical grade supplements at the lowest price from companies that only sell to doctors. I keep my prices at a lower cost than what you can find online for the same quality product. There are a lot of poor quality supplements on the market today. Therefore, i advise all my patients to be very careful when buying fish oil, probiotics, and herbal medicine because the quality of what is on the market today will do more harm then good. It will generally cost a little more to buy quality but it is important for optimal health.

Specialty Lab Testing

Labs from a typical lab are good for basic testing but when you need more advanced analysis, specialty labs are required. As an example, most doctors will test toxic metals like lead and mercury with only blood serum results. Blood testing only measures for acute exposure or what you are presently being exposed too. A challenge test with chelating agents are essential to determine your body burden of toxic metals that are stored in your tissues. This example repeats itself when assessing vitamins, minerals, gastrointestional health, and heart health among others.

B Vitamin Shots

Intramuscular injection of B Vitamins is an energy booster that can be done on a weekly basis. It generally is effective in 7 out of 10 patients lasting anywhere from 4 to 6 days.  The shot includes all the B vitamins including B12, the most common injection of B vitamin. The shots can be injected in the office by the doctor or prefilled for home use and self injections.
