ULTRAVIOLET BLOOD IRRADIATION
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) is a safe, proven medical procedure that kills bacteria and viruses, aids the immune system, and rejuvenates blood properties. It uses ultraviolet energy to increase the oxygen level in the blood, and inactivate microbes and toxins, promoting healing as a natural antibiotic. A patient’s blood is drawn, run through a device exposing it to ultraviolet rays, then returned to the patient’s vein. UBI assists patients battling an infection and enables them to develop a direct, self-generated response. UBI can be used as a therapy in two forms, either as specific (i.e. psoriasis, lymph cancer) or non-specific (chronic infections, auto-immune diseases, etc.) The number of sessions needed may vary and depend on individual patient health, duration of patient illness, and severity of disease being treated.
Ozone therapy is a one-of-a-kind technique that is both detoxifying and healing. It promotes the amount of oxygen in the body through use of administering ozone into the body with various methods. Ozone therapy has been heavily studied and used effectively in treatments for more than a century. Its effects are proven, consistent, safe, and with minimal and preventable side effects. This therapy is useful for disinfecting the blood and treating diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Lyme disease, chronic hepatitis, herpes, macular degeneration, and autoimmune disorders. Ozone can also be applied in the treatment of external wounds to treat infection, or in an enclosed space “gas bath” for the inactivation of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. These techniques employ the stimulation of oxygen and help with the activation of the immune system.
PULSED ELECTROMAGNETIC THERAPY (PMF)
This non-invasive treatment uses a pulsating electromagnetic field in varying frequencies and intensities to help the patient manage pain associated with various bone-related conditions, injuries, and other forms of chronic pain. Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PMF) Therapy received FDA clearance in 1982 to promote the healing of bone fractures, and is in the process of being cleared for many more uses. Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy (MPT) treatment works by addressing the underlying cause of all disease: stagnation at the cellular level. MPT improves cellular metabolism through encouraging a flow and release of cellular sluggishness. Bodily traffic jams are restored to an even flow of orderly transport, and oxygen and nutrients can be moved more effectively throughout the entire system.
This treatment helps to improve cellular and tissue regeneration, improve cellular metabolism, and reduce swelling and inflammation in very rapid manner. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy can also help improve the circulation of blood through the body, which increases the distribution of oxygen throughout the body. Overall, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy helps support cellular energy and results in an improvement in cellular health and function, which works to help relieve symptoms of chronic pain and speed recovery from injury or illness.
PHYSICAL VASCULAR THERAPY (BEMER)
Physical Vascular Therapy improves microcirculation and promotes the blood flow in the smallest blood vessels, which in turn improves the performance of the body’s cells, favoring the body’s own self-healing and regeneration powers. BEMER devices improve the impaired pumping movements of small blood vessels and capillaries. This results in a needs-based distribution of blood in the network of small blood vessels, making BEMER an effective treatment option for many conditions. BEMER Treatment is especially effective in the case of illness, supporting the immune response and activating the body’s own self-healing capacity by stimulating microcirculation. Also, it has a positive effect on the general sense of well-being, health, and sleep – resulting in a higher quality of life.
The BioPhoton 100 Professional uses a powerful wave of light to penetrate skin, tissue, and surrounding nerves to treat soft tissue injuries, reduce pain, promote wound healing, and provide therapy for chronic conditions such as arthritis and failed back syndrome. Before and after infrared images of the treated area show increased blood circulation that allows the body to heal itself without drugs or surgery.
The BioPhoton 100 Professional has mixed-spectrum Blue Light and 850 and 940nm far infrared light. It has been shown that blue light stimulates lymph activity, promotes healing of cutaneous injuries (burns, cuts, and contusions) and even helps to combat MRSA. The benefits of 850nm and 940nm near Infrared light include increased ATP production, vasodilation in injured tissues of arteries, lymphatics, and veins, stimulation of stem cells, reduced inflammation, relief of pain, myofascial release, increased delivery of oxygen into the mitochondria, increased production of collagen, and boosts immunity.
Intravenous Therapy (IV Therapy) is the quickest, safest way to administer vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to enhance immune function, increase energy levels, and help manage a variety of chronic health problems. IV nutrients can be preventive by strengthening your body’s defenses as well as anti-aging by promoting great skin, hair, and nails to help you look and feel younger. IV is also an excellent tool to prepare for surgery; it decreases the rate of infections, complications, scar-formation and hospitalization. IV nutrients provide rapid symptom relief for a variety of symptoms and conditions. When you take a vitamin by mouth, your body must work to absorb nutrients into your blood. However, when vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are infused intravenously (IV), they are delivered directly into the bloodstream thus avoiding potential loss of potency. An IV infusion delivers 100% of each vitamin/mineral administered providing maximum absorption for expedited results.
