Prolozone Therapy

Prolozone Therapy

Like prolotherapy, prolozone is a regenerative therapy used to promote that body’s natural ability to repair itself. Our Naturopathic Doctors utilize prolozone therapy as a non-surgical means of treating pain. The goal with prolozone, as with all of our treatments for pain, is to end discomfort so the patient can get back to doing the activities they enjoy. 

What is Prolozone Therapy?

Our bodies need oxygen to live and function properly. The air we breathe, or elemental oxygen, is made up of two compounds of oxygen but, as the air moves into the upper atmosphere, a simple chemical shift occurs and those oxygen atoms are converted from two to three atoms.

Prolozone is a type of proliferative therapy, which uses a combination of vitamins and ozone, to encourage self-healing. It is used to treat pain and inflammation in and around the tendon, ligament, muscle and joints. It can effectively resolve injury and repair damaged tissue without need for surgery.

What Can Prolozone Therapy Be Used For?

Prolozone therapy has been used to treat a variety of symptoms revolving around pain and inflammation. including low back pain, sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, sprains/strains, rotator cuff injuries, plantar fasciitis, and much more. Ozone can also act as a powerful disinfectant, eliminating bacteria, yeast, virus, and fungi that are hiding in the body.

How Does Prolozone Work?

Because ozone is a highly-reactive, incredibly powerful compound made up of three atoms of oxygen, it can be used to trigger a healing response in the body, while providing the body with something it is already using—oxygen.

The process is simple, our doctors combine B vitamins, ozone, and a numbing agent and slowly inject it into the treatment area. Because ozone is more unstable than elemental oxygen, it acts as an irritant, triggering a healing response by the body. Blood rushes to the area and natural healing nutrients are distributed, stimulating cellular activity and the growth of new, healthy tissue. 

 

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy

What Is Prolotherapy?

Proliferative therapy, more commonly referred to as prolotherapy, is a type of regenerative therapy used to naturally heal, strengthen, and repair ligaments, joints, and tendons without surgery. 

Though it has been gaining popularity amongst the medical community and illustriousness with press in recent years, it is one of the oldest methods of healing. Prolotherapy actually dates back to ancient medical practices, with its roots in Chinese acupuncture.

How Does Prolotherapy Work? 

Prolotherapy stimulates a process that speeds up healing and enables the body to strengthen tendons, ligaments, and joints. It can reduce or even eliminate pain and inflammation naturally, without NSAIDS or surgery. 

Prolotherapy is performed by injecting a solution of dextrose (sugar) and procaine (a local anesthetic) into and onto joints, ligaments, and tendons. The ligament and tendon cells absorb the solution, stimulating the body to send healing blood components to the injection site. Proteins that serve as connective tissue, called collagen, are then stimulated, which signals the body’s natural process to strengthen and restore joint function. 

What Is Prolotherapy Used For?

Prolotherapy is a natural, effective, and incredibly useful therapy for many different types of musculoskeletal pain, including:

Old injuries to knees, ankles, hips, elbows, wrists, shoulders, fingers, and feet

Back, neck, and rib pain of ligament and tendon origin

Chronic tendonitis or inflammation of tendons

Sports injuries of many kinds, including leg, arm, back, and shoulder injuries

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ) causing jaw, facial, and shoulder pain

Carpal tunnel syndrome, causing numbness and muscle weakness

Arthritis

Degenerative Disk Disease

..and more

WhyDoes Prolotherapy Work?

Ligaments are the structural “hinges” that hold our bones together to create a joint. When ligaments become weak or injured they may not heal back to their original strength or endurance. Because ligaments have so many nerve endings, ligament injuries can become extremely painful. Tendons attach muscles to bones. When they are injured they can become very painful and can be very difficult to heal due to continued usage.

Luckily, our bodies are incredibly intuitive. They recognize inflammation and irritation as signs to send healing cells to the troubled area and repair it. Continued uses and NSAIDs used to reduce inflammation inhibit that function. 

The solution injected during the prolotherapy treatment acts as an irritant, triggering the body’s healing response. The injected area becomes stronger and more stable and the patient can experience permanent relief since the body is being healed rather than simply masking the symptoms.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy

What are Stem Cells? 

Stem cells are a type of cell found in every human body and in many areas of those bodies. Like other cells, stem cells are capable of dividing and becoming new cells but they differ in that the new cells created when a stem cell divides, have the ability of becoming either new stem cells or any other cell—think blood cells, skin cells, muscle cells, bone cells, nerve cells, and more.  

Though stem cells are found in many different areas of the body, most stem cells used in stem cell therapy are harvested from cord blood at the time of birth (upon the approval of the person giving birth), from bone marrow, or from an individual’s circulating blood. Other sources of stem cells are within amniotic fluid, brain and spinal cord, teeth, muscles, heart, liver, and many other tissues and organs in the body. Though, few studies have used stem cells derived from these areas and, as such, it is not common practice to use them in stem cell therapy.

What is Stem Cell Therapy? 

Stem Cell therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that, as the name suggests, uses stem cells to allow the body to regenerate tissues and heal itself. 

Stem cell therapy is a relatively new type of treatment and has only been practiced outside of scientific studies in recent years. Many scientists and physicians believe stem cells show great promise for curing diseases and could change medicine as we know it. Imagine being able to replace damaged heart and brain tissue, regenerate new bone and cartilage tissues, and yes, cure many types of cancer. These are just some of the things that stem cell therapy could make possible.

Hormone Balancing

Hormone Balancing

Hormones are a network of chemical messengers created by our endocrine system that travel through our bloodstream, notifying the different individual parts and systems of our bodies of how they should behave. When there is a hormonal imbalance, health issues begin to arise and they can range from slight annoyances to extreme dysfunction. Our providers are specialized in hormone balancing through natural means and holistic care as opposed to using synthetic stand-ins that merely mask symptoms.

Who Is Affected By Hormonal Imbalance?

Hormonal imbalance does not only occur in menopausal and post-menopausal women. Hormones are the chemical messengers found in every person, animal, and even plant on this earth. When hormones are imbalanced, even to the slightest degree, the entire system can be affected. Regardless of age, gender identification, or symptoms, our providers can help find the root of the problem and promote stability of your endocrine system and entire body.

What Issues Are Caused by Hormone Imbalance? 

Because there are many different hormones, positioned as a wide variety of chemical messengers relaying information to numerous different parts of the body, the issues caused by a hormone imbalance span a significant range. Among the most common are:

Thyroid dysfunction

Fatigue

Depression

Anxiety

Irritability

Inability to regulate blood sugar

Weight loss or weight gain

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

Thinning hair

Loss of libido, sexual discomfort, vaginal dryness

Erectile dysfunction

Osteoporosis

Blurred vision

Infertility

Acne

Sleep difficulties

Headaches

Excessive thirst

…and the list goes on

 

Are your hormones imbalanced? Schedule with one of our providers to find out.

It has proven effective in decreasing pain, discomfort, and vaginal dryness, and increasing libido and, yes, orgasms! Another use fot the O-Shot is treating incontinence or bladder leakage. Incontinence is a lonely and restrictive limitation with no good solution. Women stay home, limit their activities, and often avoid public situations altogether. The O-shot uses our own blood to treat this embarrassing condition. Dr. Amy finds this treatment, as opposed to mesh implants and surgery, to be elegant and sophisticated. There is something poetic about taking the cure from the patient’s own blood. and it works. 

Other Services Provided By Dr. Amy

Dr. Amy is experienced in everything from acupuncture to labor and delivery. She is capable and experienced in full body healthcare, including every service offered in our clinic. See the full list of services here. 

O-Shot

O-Shot

The O-shot, or orgasm shot, is a vaginal rejuvenation method that was developed by Charles, Runels, MD. Only providers, who have been certified and are part of the Cellular Medical Association are able to perform O-Shot treatments.

The O-Shot is a non-surgical means of treating sexual pain and displeasure, urinary incontinence, and a variety of other disorders, such as vaginal dryness and lichen sclerosis. This method uses growth factors naturally found in the blood to promote healing for long-term rejuvenation.

How does the O-shot work?

The O-Shot is a 20-minute procedure that starts with a blood draw. Platelet rich plasma (PRP), one of our body’s natural healing agents, is extracted patient’s own blood using a centrifuge machine. The PRP is then injected back into the patient’s numbed clitoris and upper vagina, using superfine needles.

The PRP begins rejuvenating the tissue in the injection point almost immediately. It stimulates multipotent stem cells, calling on them to heal the area. Blood flow is increased and new blood vessels begin to form, increasing volume and circulation.

How can the O-shot help me?

As the name suggests, the orgasm shot has helped many women to experience more enjoyment in their sex lives. The O-Shot decreases distress caused by sexual dysfunction and enables a more intense orgasm. Specifically, the O-shot has been successful at treating the following:

Decreased libido

Urinary Incontinence and Bladder Leakage

Vaginal Dryness

Pain During Intercourse

Inability or Decreased Ability to Orgasm

Lichen Sclerosus and Lichen Planus

Pain Related to Childbirth Trauma and Scars

Interstitial Cystitis

 

 

 

Facial Rejuvenation

Facial Rejuvenation

Our providers are highly-experienced in providing facial rejuvenation treatments through the microneedling technique. In doing so, they have helped restore confidence for many men and women.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive technique used in facial treatments to rejuvenate the skin and improve wrinkles, acne, scarring, and much more. Superfine needles are used to pierce the surface layer of the skin and inject it with substances to stimulate collagen production and the body’s natural healing process, ultimately restoring volume and helping the body produce new tissue. At Full Circle Natural Medical Clinic, we only inject safe products found naturally in the human body—hyaluronic acid and platelet rich plasma.

Types of Facial Rejuvenation:

Hyaluronic Acid Facials

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in many tissues in the body, including the dermis. It is an important contributor to tissue growth, continued health, and the healing process. It works by absorbing extensive amounts of  moisture, pulling it into the dermis, and creating volume. Because it is biocompatible, it has been FDA approved and is safe for almost every skin type with little potential for an allergic reaction.

Platelet Rich Plasma Facials

Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a natural healing agent derived from your own blood. It contains a multitude of growth factors, cell adhesion molecules, and cytokines that work together to initiate your body’s natural healing mechanisms, increasing the extracellular matrix, collagen growth, and dermal fibroblasts. Through a simple blood draw, your provider will obtain the blood needed for your procedure. The blood is then centrifuged, using advanced extraction technology, to separate the platelet rich plasma, which will be injected back into your dermis using micro-thin needles.

 

 

Homeopathy

Homeopathy

The directive of homeopathy tells us that whatever the problem may be, the solution lies within the puzzle. When our bodies are diseased, they are disorganized. Whether acute or chronic, our bodies can recognize the solution or homeopathic remedy, and find the organization in the diseased chaos.  

Prior to the inception of Full Circle Natural Medicine, Dr. Amy Haynes began exploring homeopathy and has been practicing it ever since!

She has trained with world-renowned homeopathic leaders, such as Dr. Francisco Eiziyaga, Dr. Lou Klein, Ananda Zaran, and Dr. Robin Murhpy. 

What Is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is essentially physics at its most refined. It uses highly diluted, potentized substances, such as plants and minerals, to promote healing in a disorganized or diseased system. 

How Is Homeopathy Used?

Homeopathy uses a variety of diluted substances to allow the body to heal itself. Among the most prevalent conditions homeopathic substances are capable of treating are:  migraines, bruising, allergies, asthma, pain, fatigue, gastrointestinal issues, depression, and more!

 

 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture

Full Circle Natural Medical Clinic has been practicing acupuncture since 1984 as a means to aid in the treatment of pain, gastrointestinal issues, and much more!

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine that relies on the stimulation and sedation of access points using superfine needles. This practice is used to harmonize and balance our bodies and aids in the relief of various physical and mental stressors.

How Is Acupuncture Performed? 

Using tiny filaments (about the width of 3 hairs), magnets, electricity, and heat, acupuncture can shift our bodies into balance, and remove inflammation, infection and balance hypo-and-hyper function. It is typically conducted by gently inserting tiny needles into specific points on the body and manipulating them to promote balance in the body.

What Can Acupuncture Treat?

Acupuncture has been found to successfully treat most disease processes. Among many other things, traditional Chinese medicine treatment in alleviating pain, promoting relaxation, minimizing migraine symptoms, opening blockages, increasing fertility, labor induction, and much (much) more.

GMOs: A Primer

Genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, are living organisms that have been genetically engineered. Learn why they are reeking havoc on our foods and our bodies.

GMOs: A Primer

GMOs: A Primer

Genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, are living organisms that have been genetically engineered. In other words, their genetic material has been modified and manipulated in a lab to create combinations that could never exist in nature through ordinary crossbreeding. This is very different than putting a big girl goat with a big boy goat in the same pen for a while. GMO development crosses natural kingdoms. Imagine splicing shrimp DNA with tomato DNA. Or cockroach DNA with human trafficker DNA. Science has come around to a belief that because we can, we should- all without moral obligations or even discussion.

The use of GMOs, particularly in the food industry, has sparked massive debate over the potential for harm these substances pose. Proponents of GMOs, mainly big food and pharma industries, are not interested in conversation, or even letting you know that you are eating GMO’s. They want you to just settle down and eat what they tell you. No need to waste anyone’s time and their money on research. Especially when they need that money to hire more lobbyists to influence the officials that you elected to protect you.

Although you may be aware of GMOs, at least peripherally, you may want to know more. Here’s a primer to get you started.

Pro-GMO Arguments

There are several arguments posited in favor of GMOs. Whether plants or animals are the result of genetic manipulation, GMO proponents claim that mixing favorable traits between viruses and, say, humans, organisms are produced which are heartier, more resilient, better resistant to disease, more productive- and more than virus but less than human.

While there is evidence to suggest that GMOs are more resistant to pests and disease, or at least more tolerant of pesticides and herbicides, the other claims are more dubious. The argument is that GMOs decrease the potential for waste and loss, which is beneficial to the profits of GMO’s.

Proponents claim the process is really no different from breeding a prize cow to a mushroom to produce an unusual offspring that may have value in the marketplace. Really???

Monsanto

One of the loudest proponents (and the largest producer) of GMO products is Monsanto, a multi-billion dollar food and pharmaceutical company with branches across the globe. Since its inception in 1901, Monsanto has been known to produce chemical products like PCBs, DDT, glyphosate (more commonly known as Roundup),
and even Agent Orange. All of which were ͞completely safe͟ when brought to the marketplace. After cancer, death and other chronic diseases ensued, they were later proven to be dangerously toxic to humans and the environment. Odd how that happened, wouldn’t you say?

More recently, Monsanto has lobbied hard for, and won, the right to mass produce GMOs- most notably corn, soy, wheat, and alfalfa products (fed to cows). Some of these GMO foods are used directly for human food and pharmaceuticals. So, yes, even your drugs can be GMO. They are the largest manufacturer of seeds worldwide and they continue to dominate the GMO marketplace, claiming approximately 80% of genetically modified crop production. The seeds are perfectly sterile, so after one planting, the farmer has to pay again for seeds every year after that. Monsanto seeds are designed to work specifically with Monsanto’s proprietary herbicide, Roundup. Therefore greatly increasing global sales of Roundup as a nice side effect. You don’t have to dig too deep to find Monsanto’s self-serving nature, despite the fact that they claim to be motivated by helping to make food safer and more affordable. Now is that behavior psychopathic or sociopathic? I get those two confused when talking about non-people persons.

Because of their status, funding, and connections, they have been one of the most notable contributors to the spread of GMOs across the globe, and they’ve realized the benefits through profit. From their profits, they have invested their billions of dollars into stopping GMO labeling. As a result, most Americans are unaware of the fact that as much as 80% of conventional processed foods contain GMOs. Surprise!!

Negative Health Effects

Although many countries have chosen to limit or ban GMOs, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of GMOs in 1996, largely based on studies conducted, commissioned, or overseen by GMO manufacturers. Since then, the spread of GMOs has been connected to alarming health trends, such as the rise in cases of autism and autoimmune diseases, and other health concerns. It’s hard for real science and real scientists to compete with the mega dollars Monsanto pumps into pseudoscience, deflected science, and lobbyists.

Definitive studies have yet to prove causality, but between 1996 (when GMOs were introduced) and 2005, the number of Americans with three or more chronic illnesses nearly doubled, increasing from 7% in 1996 to 13% in 2005. In addition, studies have shown that genes inserted into corn and soy products linger in the bloodstream and splice into the beneficial bacteria living in our bodies. Now your good, kind, healthy, and useful gut bacteria are splicing with the nasty creepies, right there in your intestines. You yourself become a GMO. (My question is, when can Monsanto patent you? And when they do, will you now have to pay them body use fees?)

Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, has become perhaps the most outspoken opponent of GMOs and their suspected link to health problems, with studies focused largely on the connection between nutrition and health. It is no surprise, then, that she’s had companies like Monsanto squarely in her crosshairs. Let’s get her a kevlar vest, garlic, holy water, and a large life insurance policy anyway.

Globally

There are currently more than 60 countries that have restrictions or bans concerning the cultivation and growth of GMO products, with 38 countries having confirmed bans on GMOs and GMO cultivation. By comparison, only 28 countries, including the U.S., actually grow GMO crops.

It Matters

Without GMO labeling, consumers don’t have the option to avoid foods that contain GMOs – in other words, you have no idea what you’re eating. We have yet to determine the extent of toxicity of GMOs, including what the buildup over time in cells and intestines may do to our bodies. But if Monsanto stays true to form, it’s worse than we now know.

In your everyday life, this could spell the onset of chronic diseases with no cure and the potential to pass along genetic mutations to your children and your children’s children. All signs point to serious health concerns related to GMOs- so until we better understand what these Frankenfoods are doing to our bodies, it’s best to only eat the 20% of our food that is left without the GMO flavor. Do yourselves and your progeny a favor and just say NO to GMO.

The Second Brain: Gut Flora and Why We Need It

The Second Brain: Gut Flora and Why We Need It

All of us need to eat in order to receive the vital nutrients that give us energy and sustain life. Unfortunately, this means that we expose our bodies to outside elements that are both beneficial and harmful. An apple, for example, can deliver water, fiber, and vitamins your body needs, but it could also be a conduit for chemical pesticides and fertilizers, mold, parasites, or harmful bacteria. Even if food is natural, organic, and perfectly healthy, you still need to digest it in order to glean the nutrients and expel the waste. This is where your gut flora, or the microbiome of essential bacteria in your digestive tract, comes into play.

You may be wondering why the gut flora is often referred to as a second brain. It is because your brain and your gut are inextricably linked, with each influencing the other. Not only does the health of your microbiome inform the health of your entire body, but there is also communication between bacteria and the brain via the nervous system, a process known as the gut-brain axis. And all of the signals sent between the two are designed with one goal in mind: survival. Note that you don’t necessarily have to be healthy to survive. You do, however, have to adapt. And the gut is often the first wave of defense because it is where outside elements, good or bad, are introduced into your body.

And from there your two brains – the one in your head and the one in your gut – work together to absorb and distribute nutrients, expel waste, and cope with the rising tide of toxins that are in our environment and that are introduced through consumption. Have you ever heard of a nervous stomach? This is your brain and your gut interacting, creating a physical response to mental and emotional stress. And when the microbiome is out of balance, the result could be inflammation, immune response, and corresponding feelings of fatigue, anxiety, or depression, just for example. In other words, your gut flora could be inextricably linked to all kinds of ailments that are seemingly unrelated to your digestive tract. On the upside, balancing your microbiome and maintaining gut health has the potential to improve the health of your entire body.

So in addition to helping you properly digest your food, the gut flora plays a crucial role in how your body functions as a whole and how it adapts to survive its environment and the items you consume. And just as it can be damaged by outside elements, so too can it be healed by the choices you make. When your gut flora is balanced, you will enjoy optimal health. When your microbiome is compromised, your health is sure to follow suit.

Autoimmune: We Can Heal

Autoimmune: We Can Heal

If western medicine has taught us nothing else, it has imparted the sure knowledge that the genetics we are born with cannot be changed. But is that true? It’s important to understand that genetic predispositions are not foregone conclusions. Even if you have a family history of autoimmune disease, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are on a predestined path toward illness. You are simply at greater risk. But thanks to a revolutionary field of study known as epigenetics, we now know that you can avoid predispositions and potentially even reverse autoimmune diseases after they have been triggered.

Autoimmune disorders are just one possible genetic expression that may occur when you are predisposed to a particular illness. But your genetic code also features a predisposition for health. So how can you control which expression your genes produce? If you listen to allopathic experts, you’ll come to believe that you have no control, that you merely have to wait for inevitable health problems to surface and then treat them forever with toxic pharmaceuticals that suppress symptoms while inundating you with unfavorable side effects. It’s no wonder so many people are looking for alternatives to western medicine.

The truth is that your body is designed to adapt and survive, and it has mechanisms in place to achieve and maintain health. However, your behavior and your lifestyle choices play a major role in the ability to regulate health. There are several factors to consider when it comes to remaining healthy, avoiding the onset of diseases, and addressing them if and when they are triggered. Input is essential. You’ve heard the phrase “you are what you eat”. It’s not far from the truth. The nutrients you ingest not only provide fuel that gives your body energy, but they affect you at the cellular level. And they have an impact on gene expression. When you ingest processed foods laden with chemicals and toxins, there is a much higher chance of triggering unhealthy gene expressions that lead to autoimmune diseases.

But you have the power to make a different choice and create a different outcome where your health is concerned. And food isn’t the only factor. Environmental toxins can play a part, as can your very thoughts and beliefs. If, for example, you follow allopathic thought on the matter, believing that you are doomed to repeat the genetic expressions of your parents, then it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. But if you believe that you can overcome disease to achieve health, or that you can make choices that allow you to maintain healthy genetic expression, there is another avenue available to you.

In other words, you are a participant in your health, one way or another. You must stop listening to those who tell you that predisposition equates to an indisputable outcome, that there are no causes or cures for autoimmune diseases, and that a lifetime of pharmaceutical Band-Aids is your only option. With proper nutrition, holistic medicine, and a strong belief that you can control your health and your genetic expression, autoimmune and other diseases can be treated, corrected, and even reversed. In some cases they can be avoided altogether, regardless of genetic predisposition. Your expression of health, for better or worse, begins before you’re even born. But you have ample opportunity to decide which way it goes.
