THERAPIES - Information on Candida

A variety of bacteria and yeast are found in the normal, healthy gut. They help in the elimination of toxins and wastes and even manufacture some nutrients, as well as keeping one another in check. But, with the use of drugs, such as: antibiotics, steroids, birth control pills, and other factors, such as: diet, allergies, or poor digestion - the population of bacteria decreases or changes and gives the yeast an opportunity to proliferate.

Yeast produces toxins (i.e. acetaldehyde) which can affect any part of the body where it is most vulnerable. It can affect the digestive system, the reproductive system, the nervous system, the respiratory system, or other areas of the body. An over-growth of Candida can precipitate a myriad of possible symptoms: from gas and bloating to joint pains, headaches, diarrhea, low energy, poor vision, confusion, poor memory, and much more. There are several approaches to the treatment of this over-growth of Candida. The most effective we have found is a combination of:

  1. Diet control — in order to starve the yeast of its two foods: yeasts and sugars

  2. Antifungal herb — to kill off the yeast over-growth

  3. Homeopathic support — to support the body where it is needed

  4. Probiotics - acidophilus/bifidus — seeding into the gut friendly bacteria to replace the yeast

THERAPIES - Chelation Therapy

WHAT IS CHELATION?

The process of chelation is a simple binding of a metal ion with a carrier molecule, which then is used to carry the metal ion out of the body. The most common type of chelation uses EDTA (Ethylene Diamine Tetracetic Acid) as the carrier molecule. This process is used to treat Atherosclerosis or "hardening of the arteries" which is the underlying problem in almost all heart disease, stroke, senility and circulation problems.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

EDTA is combined with a complex of vitamins and minerals in an IV bag and infused over a 3-hour period. The infusion of EDTA provokes several reactions. Ionized calcium is lowered in the bloodstream, causing the release of parathyroid hormone, which mobilizes calcium from metastatic soft tissue stores, such as the plaque in the artery walls, or calcium deposits in joints or bone spurs etc. This followed by a Calcitonin response, which is the opposing hormone to Parathyroid hormone and results in more Calcium being deposited in the bones. So chelation is effective in reducing Osteoporosis.

This process gradually over a series of treatments erodes away the plaque, opening up the blood vessel and improving circulation. Chelation also removes toxic heavy metals such as lead or arsenic, which can dramatically reduce free radical damage, which is now thought to be the main mechanism for aging and degenerative diseases. A Swiss study demonstrated a 90% reduction in cancer incidence after EDTA chelation.

IS IT SAFE?

In all medical procedures there is always the possibility of side effects, however the benefits so out weigh the possible side effects it is well worth the ever so slight danger. Perhaps this is in part due to the markedly low toxicity of EDTA, being only one fifth that of aspirin. The best proof of how safe a medical practice is by the number of malpractice suits brought against it. For four decades EDTA has been used on over 500,000 patients with more than 6,000,000 treatments. The Georgetown University Law School and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners failed to uncover any reported legal actions involving the use of chelation for atherosclerosis.

Lab Tests

Before beginning Chelation Therapy blood tests are done to evaluate your overall medical condition, assess major organ systems and check nutrient status.

Our clinic has a CardioVision instrument which measures hardening of the arteries also referred to as arterial stiffness index. This tool gives a clear indication of the need for chelation therapy and can be used to monitor your progress and response to the treatment. Blood tests, although necessary to measure cholesterol and other risk factors, do not measure arteriosclerosis or hardening of the arteries directly.

THERAPIES - Ozone

WHAT IS OZONE?

Ozone is a form of oxygen with three oxygen molecules (03) instead of the usual two (02). As a molecule containing a large excess of energy, ozone manifests bactericidal, viricidal, fungicidal and protozoacidal actions which makes it a treatment of choice in certain conditions and an adjunctive treatment in others.

HOW IS IT PRODUCED?

Ozone is produced by flowing pure medical grade oxygen through a high voltage field.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Although ozone was primarily thought of as a potent germicide and disinfectant, it is also recognized as a potent immunostimulant. Ozone seems to be effective against diseases for which oxygen is not processed well. Most microorganisms in the body are anaerobic, as are cancer cells, so they cannot process oxygen or the products of oxidation as well as normal body cells. Since ozone is a particularly active high-energy form of oxygen, it is most effective. Ozone can modify the properties of red blood cells and improve the oxygenation and circulation of ischemic tissues. Ozone also has the ability to neutralize free radicals and other toxins in the body.

WHAT CAN IT TREAT?

Due to its broad spectrum of effects in the body, ozone can be used to treat a whole galaxy of conditions, including:

Infectious diseases - any diseases caused by viruses or other microorganisms, gangrene, HIV, Herpes and Hepatitis.

Circulatory diseases - stroke, peripheral vascular diseases, dementia, arrhythmias.

Immune disorders - MS, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type II, environmental sensitivities.

Diseases of multiple etiologies - cancer, AIDS, fibromyalgia and Colitis

HOW IS IT ADMINISTERED?

Ozone can be administered in a variety of ways. It can be applied directly for local superficial infections such as ulcers, abscesses, and fistulae, or administered for a systemic effect.
Three main ways of administering ozone for a systemic effect are by rectal insufflation, by IV major auto hemotherapy (where venous blood is withdrawn into a container, injected with ozone and then reinfused into the blood stream), or by body bag or cup over an ulcer or wound.

IS IT SAFE?

Ozone is extremely safe; it leaves no residue except oxygen and has no adverse effects or toxicity in humans. However, breathing ozone will cause irritation in the respiratory tract and should be avoided. Ozone is most widely used to purify water because it has the ability to neutralize many toxic compounds.

THERAPIES - Peroxide

WHAT IS PEROXIDE?

Peroxide is a form of water with and extra oxygen molecule H2O2. As a molecule containing a large excess of energy, peroxide manifests bactericidal, viricidal, fungicidal and protozoacidal actions which makes it a treatment of choice in certain conditions and an adjunctive treatment in others.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Peroxide, like ozone, seems to be effective against diseases for which oxygen is not processed well. Although it was primarily thought of as a germicide and disinfectant, it is also recognized as a potent immunostimulant. Most microorganisms in the body are anaerobic, as are cancer cells, so they cannot process oxygen or the products of oxidation as well as normal body cells. Since peroxide carries an extra oxygen molecule, it is most effective. Peroxide can modify the properties of red blood cells and improve the oxygenation and circulation of ischemic tissues. Peroxide also has the ability to neutralize free radicals and other toxins in the body.

WHAT CAN IT TREAT?

Due to its broad spectrum of effects in the body, peroxide can be used to treat a whole galaxy of conditions, including:

Infectious diseases - any diseases caused by viruses or other microorganisms such as: gangrene, HIV, Herpes and Hepatitis.
Circulatory diseases - stroke, peripheral vascular diseases, dementia, arrhythmias.
Immune disorders - MS, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type II, environmental sensitivities.
Diseases of multiple etiologies - cancer, AIDS, fibromyalgia and Colitis

HOW IS IT ADMINISTERED?

Peroxide can be administered in a variety of ways. It can be applied directly for local superficial infections such as ulcers, abscesses, and fistulae, or administered for a systemic effect. For systemic effects peroxide is administered intravenously in a slow drip along with other synergistic nutrients. This takes 2 to 3 hours to administer.

IS IT SAFE?

Peroxide is extremely safe; it leaves no residue except oxygen and hydrogen and has no adverse effects or toxicity in humans. Peroxide is a very physiological substance — it is produced by the white blood cells of the immune system and so the body can readily process it.

Electrodermal Screening?

Prognos measures the disturbances to different meridian/organ systems, and further testing for the underlying causes of disease or disturbance of these organs.

Prognos uses modern electronics, physics, computers and our recent comprehension of the interchange between matter and energy to heal. It was originally developed for Russian astronauts to monitor their health in outer space.

The Prognos measures the meridians at acupuncture points at the ends of the fingers and toes. Each meridian is related to an organ and is therefore a measurement of the energetic state of that organ. In addition to testing organs, various disease causing factors can be tested to determine the underlying causes of disease or illness. Finally remedies can be tested for treating the patient based on the Prognos diagnosis.

What Can Prognos Test For?

In addition to organs and the systems they function in such as the digestive system or the respiratory system. We can determine what disease causing factors are impacting the body, such as viruses, bacteria, toxic strain, hormones, emotions etc. Treatments can be tested as well, and it can be determined in advance whether a treatment is tolerated and effective

Is it painful? No!

The process is completely painless. The patient simply sits in a chair while the points on all the fingers and toes are measured. The touch is very light and so the point is not at all traumatized which contributes to the reproducibility of the measurements and the accuracy for which this instrument is renowned.

Scheduling Visits

The first testing takes 1.5 to 2 hours. Follow up visits are usually somewhat shorter. The number of visits depends on the patient. It is a process of peeling layers of health history away one at a time.
