Fibromyalgia

Given the myriad of symptoms Fibromyalgia can cause, partnering with an expert who can work with you on a multifaceted and individualized treatment approach, is vital. Alterations in treatment strategies, especially during a flare, are necessary given the numerous contributing factors to pain amplification.

We work together and review your lab results, current lifestyle and mindset to identify potential macro and micro-nutrient deficiencies, stealth infections, inflammatory markers, gut dysbiosis, as well as your potential toxic burden. After an extensive review, we put together a progressive, complimentary and comprehensive treatment plan that addresses your lifestyle, mindfulness and body-based program to work on the root cause while mitigating your potentially debilitating symptoms. Pain management is achieved through injections, Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN), Peptide therapy and Osteopathic Manipulation.

1. OMT
2. Peptides
3. LDN
4. Supplement program
5. Diet & lifestyle modifications

Chronic Fatigue 

Chronic Fatigue, also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, is a complex illness that develops gradually and is characterized by at least six months of extreme fatigue that is not relieved by rest. There can be numerous contributors such as an Epstein-Barr infection, vitamin deficiencies, gut dysbiosis or mitochondrial dysfunction.

After a comprehensive overview and review of labs to help find the root cause we work together on a programmatic and layered treatment program that includes lifestyle modifications, supplement and nutrient recommendations as well as healing technology, such as PEMF and photobiomodulation, to boost your energy. Option to include an IV nutrient therapy program to accelerate healing or if there is gut impairment and/or a peptide program to reduce systemic inflammation.

Treatments:
1. Diet & lifestyle modifications
2. IV therapy
3. Red light therapy
4. PEMF
5. Peptides
6. Supplement program

Autoimmune Diseases 

Autoimmune diseases (AD’s) symptoms can show up as fatigue, digestive issues, swelling and/or skin problems. I work with Rheumatoid arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBS) and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis patients from a root-cause perspective using symptoms as a signal and working to unburden the immune system. Environmentally we look at potential root causes in your diet, underlying toxins, stealth infections, stress or gut dysbiosis. After a comprehensive consultation and review of labs, we put together a personalized and progressive treatment program.

Treatments often start with healing the gut, adjusting the diet and making other lifestyle adjustments to support stress reduction. Treatments range from Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN), exosomes, IV nutritional therapy, peptide therapy and quality supplements to reduce symptoms.

Treatments:
1. Nutritional & lifestyle modifications
2. Peptides

Low Testosterone 

Low T can affect men and women resulting in fatigue, weakness, weight gain, sexual issues, decreased sports performance, memory issues and/or brain fog. Lab evaluations can easily identify if this is the issue.

Treatment for low testosterone can go purely natural and we can introduce foods and herbs into your nutritional program to elevate your testosterone and incorporate other lifestyle modifications. We can also explore bioidentical hormones or testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) in the form of transdermal cream or subcutaneous injections.

Treatments:
1. Nutritional & lifestyle modifications

Lyme Disease

If you have symptoms of Lyme disease or suspect you may have it, it is imperative you see a Lyme Literate Doctor (LLD), such as myself, at the start. I work with patients who have recent tick bites and exhibit the bulls-eye rash or early/acute Lyme disease. Lyme is known as the “great pretender” and the symptoms are vast often being misdiagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Epstein-Barr (EBV) and/or Fibromyalgia. As the immune system is attacked by Lyme it becomes evident across one's cellular health, immune function, metabolic function and dramatically increased inflammation. In cases where joints, tendons, and muscles are impaired or inflamed, manual therapy helps to not only improve but accelerate the body's ability to heal. Given my background in Osteopathic and Functional Medicine, I am able to help my patients experience symptom mitigation quicker through a unique combination of functional, manual and cutting-edge treatments that often requires seeing multiple doctors.

Treatment begins with a thorough consultation where we review your history, lifestyle and previous labs. Following additional comprehensive lab work, we put together a progressive and adaptive treatment plan that combines eastern and western medicine for a holistic approach to your healing. This can include prescription medication, IV nutritional therapy, infrared light therapy, PEMF, herbal protocols and quality supplements, manual therapy, LDN, exosomes, detox protocols & more.

Treatments:
1. IV nutritional therapy
2. Herbal protocols
3. Peptides
4. LDN
5. Infrared light therapy
6. Supplement program
7. Osteopathic manipulation
8. PEMF
9. Exosomes
10. Craniosacral therapy
11. Prescription medication

Mold Toxicity

Mold toxicity is an illness that some patients may not know they have until the symptoms are extreme. Mold toxins suppress the immune system, damage and kill cells, impair mitochondrial function and the nervous system. Mold toxicity appears in isolation but also in conjunction with Lyme Disease or Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. Symptoms that you could be suffering from mold exposure or toxicity include brain fog, nosebleeds, muscle twitches, poor temperature control and more.

A thorough lab and mobility evaluation is the first part of the treatment to identify if and where inflammation is showing up. After labs are reviewed a treatment program is decided upon that combines eastern and western medicine. We will establish an herbal protocol with binders to the infection and inflammation, and lifestyle additions such as infrared heat, a sauna or PEMF to aid in the elimination of toxins. We may also incorporate manual therapy, gua-sha and lymphatic drainage treatments such as cupping, to accelerate healing.

Treatments:
1. Herbal protocol
2. Supplement program
3. Gua-Sha
4. Cupping
5. PEMF

Thyroid Disease

There are numerous ways thyroid dysfunction can exhibit itself - either acutely or chronically - and via hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, a goiter or thyroiditis. Sometimes thyroid dysfunction is only a symptom of a larger issue and its treatment should be considered as a part of a holistic treatment approach. Often the root cause could be an autoimmune issue, leaky gut, a micro or macronutrient deficiency or hormone imbalance.

Treatment at my practice includes running a full thyroid, hormone and nutrient panels, alongside a microbiome (stool) test, if necessary. Using symptoms as signals and labs as guides we work through a program that focuses on symptom relief and treating the root cause. That may be with compounded thyroid prescription, a supporting supplement program, eliminating any autoimmune factors, treatment with Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) as well as diet and lifestyle modifications.

Treatments:
1. Compounded thyroid RX
2. Supplement program
3. Nutritional & lifestyle modifications
4. LDN

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome

Mast Cells are found in your bone marrow and around the blood vessels in your body. As a part of your immune system they respond in-kind when they think your body is exposed to stress or danger, unfortunately, their signaling dysfunction causes them to release too much of a substance at the wrong time. The resulting symptoms can include hives, fatigue, neuropathy as well as manifest in other ways.

Treatment at my practice includes a full panel of labs, a comprehensive review, listening to symptoms a complete treatment plan that can be devised. Treatments can include putting the patient on a quality supplement program, specific prescriptions and/or the use of technology at home or in-office to mitigate symptoms and accelerate treatment.

Treatments:
1. RX
2. Supplement program
3. Technology

Gut Health and the Microbiome

The root cause of many problems is often found in the gut, and many times the symptoms do not manifest in the gut at all, leaving practitioners working on the symptoms versus the true root cause. Acute and/or chronic exposure to toxins, certain food and stress are just a handful of the dozens of potential causes. It can manifest in symptoms that range from skin issues, osteoarthritis, mood disorders, autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue syndrome and of course gut-related symptoms like bloating and gas. With names like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) Candida and leaky gut there are a number of ways your microbiome can go awry.

We would work together on a personalized multi-modality approach to treat you that begins with a comprehensive consultation and exam to review your lifestyle, labs & symptom review. Following a series of labs, microbiome (stool) tests and analysis I put together a 360-degree treatment plan for you that includes in-office and at-home work to accelerate your healing.

At a minimum, we create a comprehensive nutritional and lifestyle program alongside a supplement program to address the dysfunction. I can then offer osteopathic manipulation (OMT) and visceral manipulation to help with pain and gut motility, dry needling, homeopathic injections to help with pain, peptide therapies like BPC-157 to help with inflammation in the gut.

Treatments:
1. Microbiome (stool) testing & re-tests
2. Nutritional & lifestyle programming
4. Homeopathic injections
4. OMT
5. Peptides
6. Dry needling
