Chronic Disease

The best care

Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune Disease occurs when an overactive immune system responds against substances and tissues normally present in the body. The immune system mistakenly thinks that some part of the body is a pathogen (should not be present in the body) and attacks it. Autoimmune diseases are typically named or categorized by the type of tissue that they attack: Multiple Sclerosis – the immune system is attacking the myelin sheath around the nerve, Crohn’s Disease – the immune system attacks the gastrointestinal system, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis – the immune system attacks the thyroid gland, etc.

It is important to understand that an autoimmune disease is a ‘state’ that the immune system is in. It is NOT a disease of an organ; and even though it is given a multitude of names depending on the tissue currently affected, it is a STATE of the immune system attacking the tissue it was meant to protect.

As in all autoimmune conditions, there is tissue destruction at the site of inflammation; the reason the organ is dysfunctional is because the immune system is attacking the tissue. Regenerative cells secrete anti-inflammatory, antifibrotic (decrease scar tissue), immunomodulatory (decrease autoimmune response), and regenerative (rebuild tissue) molecules that stimulate the repair and regeneration of inflamed or damaged tissues. These are the reasons why we recommend stem cell therapy for those suffering with this condition.

Functional Medicine looks at the root cause of disease and is typically incorporated in all of our chronic disease protocols. Typically, we give recommendation on specific nutrients based on blood work, genetic testing, heavy metal/mineral testing, etc. Once we repair, rebuild, and improve symptoms, we want to make sure that whatever may have instigated the issue to start is gone and no longer aggravating the system so there is not relapse later.

The following is a list of the most common autoimmune diseases, but not a complete list:

Alzheimer’s Disease
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Ankylosing Spondylitis
Crohn’s Disease
Graves Disease
Diabetes Type 1
Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
Infertility
Lyme Disease
Multiple Sclerosis
Myasthenia Gravis
Psoriasis
Psoriatic Arthritis
Polymyositis
Restless Leg Syndrome
Rheumatoid Arthritis, Gout, Psoriatic Arthritis
Rosacea
Scleroderma
Sjogren’s Syndrome
Systemic Lupus Erythamatosus (SLE)
Ulcerative Colitis

 

 

COPD, Emphysema, Pulmonary Fibrosis

These are a collection of lung diseases that are marked by tissue destruction, inflammation, and scarring of the tissue. This is exactly why we use Regenerative Cells to help combat these issues. These cells secrete anti-inflammatory, antifibrotic (decrease scar tissue), immunomodulatory (decrease autoimmune response), and regenerative (rebuild tissue) molecules that stimulate the repair and regeneration of inflamed or damaged tissues.

 

 

 

Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is a disease where the body does not produce insulin, usually caused by an autoimmune reaction that destroys the cells that produce this hormone in the pancreas. When looking at the mechanism of this disease, you can see why Regenerative cells can potentially help with those who suffer from this condition.

 

Regenerative Cells secrete anti-inflammatory, antifibrotic (decrease scar tissue), immunomodulatory (decrease autoimmune response), and regenerative (rebuild tissue) molecules that stimulate the repair and regeneration of inflamed or damaged tissues. With the immunomodulatory effect, the regenerative cells can help decrease the autoimmune response to the insulin producing cells and the regenerative effect can potentially help regenerate the damaged cells.

 

 

 

Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Syndrome

Fibromyalgia is a serious debilitating disease that produces widespread pain, disturbed sleep, and overall exhaustion. People with fibromyalgia experience overall body pain, particularly in their muscles, ligaments and tendons. Patients also typically live with a general feeling of exhaustion.

Diagnosis

The way a person is diagnosed with fibromyalgia has changed. The method used in the past was a check that evaluated 18 different points on the body and whether they were painful with heavy pressure. Now a diagnosis can be made if a person reports widespread pain (to be considered widespread, the pain must occur on both sides of your body and above and below your waist) for more than three months— with no underlying medical condition that could cause the pain.

The Problem

Unfortunately, the medical model to treat fibromyalgia is with heavy medications that have serious side effects and make you feel uncomfortable instead of looking for the underlying cause of the disease.

The Answer

We use our multifaceted approach when addressing those who suffer from fibromyalgia. We leave no stone unturned: Functional Medicine, Clinical Nutrigenomics, Sanexes Therapy, Regenerative Cell Therapy, and QNRT®.

 

Sanexes Therapy – Sanexas treats chronic and acute, drug-resistant and intractable (long-term) pain. This system provides specific-parameter signaling for muscle strengthening, efficacious neuromuscular reeducation, and muscle spasm activity relaxation.

Sanexas works on pain through a method called electric cell signaling (EST). The EST treatments work to reestablish normal cellular healing. It provides pain relief due to:

  • Ligand/hormone activity imitation

  • pH normalization

  • Improved membrane permeability

  • Trophic improvement

  • Activation of Regeneration — cAMP (Cell repair and normalization)

  • Immune system support (Gap Junction) through enhanced communication cell-to-cell

Sanexas is the only EST device published in multiple medical journals and used in clinical research proving the ability to heal tissue and regenerate nerves.

 

 

Functional Medicine – we do extensive testing to find out WHY you feel the way you do and what is needed to support the body back to health.

Clinical Nutrigenomics – we can look at your gene profile to see if there are specific deficiencies or detox markers that are contributing or causing your symptoms.

Regenerative Cell Therapy – allows us to help decrease any autoimmune system issues that may be contributing and regenerate the damaged tissues.

QNRT® – will address the emotional issues that have contributed to your issues and clear them from the subconscious to allow your body to heal without any road blocks.

Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection primarily transmitted by infected ticks. Ticks are usually found in wooded and grassy areas. People usually associate Lyme Disease with the North East part of the United States, but it is found throughout the entire country and in more than sixty other countries.

 

The CDC estimates that 300,000 people contract Lyme Disease in the U.S. every year. The actual amount of people inflicted with Lyme Disease is likely much higher than this due to the very poor way that Lyme Disease is currently diagnosed using the two-tier model. This leads to many misdiagnosed cases and improperly managed patients. If left untreated for to long or under-treated initially those inflicted can develop Chronic Lyme Disease. Many in the medical community will reject such a diagnosis and question if such a thing exists. I will tell you plainly that it DOES exist and anyone who says otherwise is ignorant.

 

Regenerative Cells secrete anti-inflammatory, antifibrotic (decrease scar tissue), immunomodulatory (decrease autoimmune response), and regenerative (rebuild tissue) molecules that stimulate the repair and regeneration of inflamed or damaged tissues. These are the reasons why we recommend  this therapy for those suffering with this condition. This is especially true when it comes to Chronic Lyme Disease which causes Multiple Sclerosis type symptoms and is often mistook for the disease itself.

 

Functional Medicine looks at the root cause of disease and is usually incorporated in all of our chronic disease protocols. Typically, we give recommendations on specific nutrients based on blood work, genetic testing, heavy metal/mineral testing, etc. This will give the body a chance to heal itself, purge infections, and make sure we are decreasing the body’s inflammation and toxic load.

 

 

 

Tinnitus

People suffering with tinnitus often hear a high pitch ringing in the ears, but this noise can be different from person to person. Tinnitus is thought to affect 50 million Americans, with the highest occurrence rate being in those over the age of 50. Many people who have had tinnitus for a long time adapt to the ringing and can function at a high level even with the constant noise; however, numbers show that 1 in 5 people in this category become debilitated. The issues that it causes can range from anxiety, poor concentration, insomnia, low school/work performance, irritability, and depression.

 

The exact mechanism of how it works is not fully understood, but the use of dextro-therapy and its effect on releasing nerve tissue oftentimes will resolve chronic tinnitus issues.  Dextro-Therapy releases cutaneous nerves often involved in chronic nerve patterns and their continued aggravation.
