Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy

5 years ago, I was working with a patient who had severe knee pain. We were successful with her prolotherapy treatments; so it took me by surprise when she told me she was mad at me. 

“Why didn’t I hear about you years ago!” she growled. Cautiously, I tiptoed back into decades of medical training.

“Tell me more about that,” I said.

“I’ve been limiting my activities for years when all this time you had the training to fix me!” 

At that moment, I realized, my sister was right, I really am selfish.

 

From that point on, I understood that I had both a duty and an opportunity to let people know about regenerative therapy. Online blogging is a great way to provide you with the level of understanding you may need to make the best choice for your health prior to making an appointment.

 

I hope you find this resource useful and helpful to you in the weeks to come! 

Until Next Time,

Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional Counseling

As naturopathic doctors, we believe that proper nutrition is essential to maximize health. What we put into our bodies has a direct effect on the way we feel. We are experts in nutritional counseling and always incorporate this into our treatment plans. We offer guidelines on general healthy eating habits, as well as specific dietary recommendations to address dysfunction. While it might be obvious that dietary changes can affect our digestion and bowel habits. Diet optimization is also crucial in treating hormone dysfunction, mood irregularities, energy levels, autoimmune disease, chronic pain, allergies, and so much more. One of the first things that we do as naturopathic doctors is remove obstacles to cure. Dietary factors are often a major obstacle that must be addressed.

When we ask you to make dietary changes we will also educate you on why we are doing so. Learning about healthy eating habits and food hygiene can be empowering, and enable you to take charge of your own healing journey. We recognize that change can be difficult. We work to consistently steer you towards better health, in steps that feel achievable. We find that proper support and education make a significant difference in success when attempting these kinds of lifestyle changes.

 

 

Physical Medicine

Physical Medicine

Physical medicine is a broad term that encompasses everything from chiropractic-style manipulations to gentle massage. While you might guess from the title, physical medicine can be great at addressing physical complaints, such as headaches and back pain. However, proper alignment of the body is also essential to our overall well being. We believe that hands-on medicine can give us great insight into a patient’s health – the body has its own story to tell, and can give us information that hasn’t been illuminated from talking to patients.

What Does Physical Medicine Treat? 

We offer Cranialsacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Active Isolated Stretching and Myofascial Release. These are all gentle types of physical medicine that can help treat gastrointestinal dysfunction, stress/anxiety, brain fog, post-concussive syndrome, headaches, physical pain, and much more.

What is Pelvic Floor Therapy?

 We also offer Holistic Pelvic Floor Therapy, which is a type of internal massage that addresses urinary incontinence, sexual dysfunction, pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, back pain, coccyx pain, hemorrhoids, and constipation. Pelvic Floor Therapy is regularly prescribed in other countries following childbirth and can help foster a greater connection to self.

How Can Dr. Amy Haynes Help You?

Dr. Amy is highly skilled in a wide array of natural healthcare treatments. Some of the ones she is most passionate about are:

Ozone Therapy

Dr. Amy loves providing ozone therapy for her patients. It seems so simple, such an obvious treatment because it uses oxygen, an essential element to life! Ozone works beautifully—killing microbes and stimulating healing. Because it can’t be patented, it’s available to everyone. The applications of ozone therapy are endless—from treating bacterial infections to enhancing anti-aging. It can insufflate into an orifice, be injected into a joint or sinus, and infused into the blood. 

Prolotherapy

Chronic Pain is horrible. It alters the course of lives by limiting our decision-making abilities.  Like a thief, It steals our ability to feel pleasure in our lives. Patients come to us broken and in pain and, using prolotherapy, Dr. Amy enables their bodies to heal themselves. A month or so after treatment, they are better, without the use of drugs or surgery. Dr. Amy uses and loves prolotherapy as a means of treating chronic pain because it proves that our bodies are designed to heal. 

O-Shot

As the name suggests, the O-Shot, or the orgasm shot, was created to enhance sexual pleasure in women. 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.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture

  Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine, which relies on the stimulation and sedation of access points to harmonize and balance our bodies. Acupuncture has the ability to successfully treat most disease processes. Using tiny filaments (about the width of three hairs) magnets, electricity and heat, acupuncture can shift our bodies into balance. Acupuncture can remove inflammation and infection, while addressing the hypo (less) and hyper (more) function.

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.

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.

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!

 

 

Botanical Medicine

Botanical Medicine

For every disease and disorder that we may encounter in our lifetimes, at least 10 biological plants were put on this planet to serve us. Plants are little chemical factories able to utilize the nutritional essence of rock, water and sunlight to make food and medicine for us. We individualize compound tinctures, powders, capsules and teas in our dispensary.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

In our culture, thyroid, adrenal and the sex hormones (estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone) are the most common hormones to fall out of balance. With Bioidentical Hormone Replacement, a hormonally balanced individual has the best opportunity for a strong, productive and healthy lifestyle. Bioidentical hormone replacement uses hormones that are identical with what our bodies produce.

What are Hormones

Hormones are a network of chemical messengers, created by our endocrine system (, that travel through our bloodstream.) They notify the individual parts 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 Imbalances?

There are many different hormones that act as chemical messengers to relay information across the body. Because of the diversity among hormones, and the many body systems they act on, the issues caused by a hormone imbalance span a significant range. The most common issues 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

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma is another form of Proliferative Therapy. The PRP process utilizes a person’s own blood to stimulate the body to repair ligament and tendon fibers as well, as bones and muscles. Healing components, extracted from the blood, are injected into an area of injury (joints, ligaments and tendons). Once the solution is injected, ( the solution stimulates the body to initiate its own healing process.)

Soft tissue injuries treated with PRP include:

  • Tendinopathy “torn or ripped tendons”
  • Tendinosis – tendons weakened
  • Acute and chronic muscle strain
  • Muscle Fibrosis – a type of injury cause by over training or extensive strain
  • Ligament sprains
  • Joint capsular laxity – the loosening of joints due to weakened muscles
  • Intra-articular cartilage problems
  • Mensical injury – a type of knee joint tear or sprain
  • Chronic synovitis or joint inflammation

Platelet Rich therapy is revolutionary new technique that has achieved dramatic results in difficult orthopedic situations.  PRP has been hailed in many publications as a remarkably effective healing process that works where other healing techniques fall short. It is being used more frequently in sports and injury-related healing with increasing effectiveness.

Dr. Stephanie Raven

Dr. Stephanie Raven

Dr. Stephanie Raven Missoula

Who is Dr. Stephanie Raven

Dr. Stephanie Raven is a naturopathic doctor and herbalist. She earned her doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) and holds bachelor of science degrees in genetics & psychology from Clemson University.

Dr. Raven grew up on the East Coast and move to Portland, OR to pursue her passions. While in Portland she studied naturopathic medicine, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and bodywork (Cranialsacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, Visceral Manipulation, Pelvic Floor Therapy, and Active Isolated Stretching). Dr. Raven’s partner is a Missoula native, so they recently relocated to the area to be closer to family. They enjoy a minimalistic lifestyle and live in a tiny house that they built themselves.

As a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Raven is trained to integrate physical, mental, and emotional aspects to understand an individual’s overall health. Each person has a story to tell and she wants to hear your story. Dr. Raven strives to create a judgement free space in the clinic and approaches healthcare from a trauma-informed, body-neutral, and gender-inclusive perspective.

 

What Does Dr. Stephanie Raven Believe?

Dr. Raven believes that the definition of health is to live our lives with freedom – to have the freedom to participate in activities that we want to do, and to enjoy all of the pleasures that life has to offer. She approaches healing with the mindset that there is always something that can be done. Her goal is to help every patient maximize their health and live as the best possible version of themselves.

Dr. Raven also believes that healthy community is critical to our wellbeing. Community has been de-emphasized in our current culture, which has been to our detriment. As a doctor, she feels that part of her role is to build community and to share knowledge with others in her community. One of her favorite naturopathic principles is docere, which is Latin for “instruct, teach, or point out”.

Dr. Raven believes that making simple lifestyle changes can have a dramatic effect on your overall health.
Dr. Raven believes that we all have the right to live life pain-free.
Dr. Raven believes that self-care and self-love are some of the most important things that we can do for our health.
Dr. Raven believes that many people suffer from burnout because our culture promotes over-working and has unhealthy expectations.
Dr. Raven believes that weight is not a reflection of health status.
Dr. Raven believes that living in harmony and connection with nature is essential.
Dr. Raven believes that only you can heal yourself. While she can share the knowledge to facilitate this process, each patient is ultimately
in charge of their own healing journey.

How Can Dr. Raven Help You?

Part of the beauty of naturopathic medicine is the diversity among practitioners. Some of the modalities that Dr. Raven is most passionate about include:

Physical Medicine

Dr. Raven incorporates bodywork into many of her treatment plans and is trained in Cranialsacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, Visceral Manipulation, and Active Isolated Stretching. Important information can be gained from slowing down and listening to the body. All of these therapies are useful in addressing stress/anxiety, brain fog, head injuries, headaches, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, physical pain and much more. Visceral manipulation is also especially useful for gastrointestinal complaints.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Holistic Pelvic Floor Therapy is another type of bodywork that Dr. Raven performs, but it deserves a category of its own. Pelvic Floor Therapy is a type of internal massage that can be helpful in pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, postpartum recovery, urinary incontinence, constipation, hemorrhoids, back pain, coccygeal pain, and sexual dysfunction. Pelvic Floor Therapy is regularly prescribed in other countries following childbirth and can also help foster a greater connection to self.

Herbal Medicine

Dr. Raven has done extensive training in herbal medicine as a supplement to her naturopathic studies. Her training has been primarily focused on learning plants in the Pacific Northwest Bioregion because her previous home-base was Portland, OR. She believes in the importance of working with local plants and is excited to start learning the intricacies of plants that grow in Montana and the Rocky Mountain States. Working with local plants allows us the opportunity to develop more intimate relationships with the herbs we are taking medicinally.

Lyftogt Perineural Injection Therapy® (PIT)

This is a type of injection therapy that is extremely effective for treating chronic pain. This treatment consists of a series of small, superficial injections, targeting areas of nerve pain and inflammation. D5W (5% Dextrose), the substance injected during PIT, is immediately analgesic (i.e. pain-relieving), this effect typically lasts for 4-5 days post treatment. These injections also help decrease neurogenic inflammation and heal your nerves. Thus, after a series of 6-8 treatments, preferably done weekly, there is typically a significant and long-term reduction in pain.

Prolozone Therapy

Prolozone Therapy

Like prolotherapy, prolozone  is a regenerative therapy (using oxygen) 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?

The oxygen in the air we breath is in the form of O2, whereas Ozone is O3. When ozone is used medically it adjusts itself to O2 + O1. The singlet oxygen, O1, is absorbed by damaged tissues and immediately used for healing.

Prolozone is a type of proliferative therapy, which uses a combination of vitamins and ozone, to encourage self-healing. Used to treat pain and inflammation in and around the tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints, it can effectively resolve injury and repair damaged tissues.

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?

Damaged cells absorb the oxygen and use it to up-regulate cellular healing and stimulate the growth of new, healthy tissue.

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 absorbed quickly and easily by damaged cells, it triggers a natural healing response.

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.

Regenerative Therapy

Regenerative Therapy

What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative Medicine is an exciting new field of therapy that specializes in rejuvunating body function and tissues. It includes therapies such as:

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.

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.

What are Placental Allographs and Second Generation Step Cells?

Second Generation Stem Cell Therapy is the most advanced regenerative therapy used today. Using advanced technology, cells harvested from the afterbirth of a birthed baby, are incubated on a special medium. The cytokines, growth factors, and other healing components are extracted, leaving behind the DNA and the cell membranes. The mothers who donate their placentas and umbilical cords are heavily screen, via a blood draw, for all risk factors associated with blood transfusions and organ transplants.

O-Shot

O-Shot

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.

The O-shot 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.

How Does the O-Shot Work?

The O-Shot is a 30-minute procedure that starts with a blood draw. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is extracted from the blood and injected back into the patient’s urethral area. The PRP aids the body to rejuvenate the local tissue immediately. It stimulates multipotent stem cells, calling on them to heal the area. Blood flow is increased and new blood vessels and nerves begin to form.

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.

Types of Facial Rejuvenation:

Hyaluronic Acid Facials

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the dermis of the skin and many other tissues in the body. It is an important contributor to the youthful and healthy appearance of the skin. It is biocompatible and safe for every skin type.

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. These agents act to increase 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.

Second Generation Stem Cell Therapy is the most advanced facial available today. Using advanced technology, cells harvested from the afterbirth of a birthed baby, are incubated on a special medium. The healing components of the stem cells are used in regenerating clear healthy skin.

Low Dose Allergy Treatment (LDA)

Low Dose Allergy Treatment (LDA)

Many people are sensitive to environmental antigens, pollens, molds, chemicals, inhalants, mites, fungi, animal dander, certain foods, etc. Our cells can react to these antigens and cause a variety of allergic responses such as skin rash, hayfever, eczema, headaches, asthma, hives and more. Standard medical diagnostics require exhaustive and expensive testing to determine the cause of allergies. These tests are often inaccurate and misleading. Testing most often is followed by costly drugs treatments that mask symptoms but have little or no effect on primary causes.

How Does LDA Work?

LDA therapy is a simple, effective treatment that tags antigens with an enzyme, beta glucuronidase, which causes cells to stop overreacting. This therapy does not affect our normal immune system. LDA treatment requires a small, subdural injection, like a mosquito bite.

Hay Fever or Seasonal Allergy

We treat twice before the pollen season begins:
once at 3-4 months prior
and again at 2-3 weeks prior.
This is followed with booster treatments once a year.

 

Food and Chemical Sensitivity

We treat every 8-12 weeks for a total of 6-8 treatments.

Full Circle offers LDA therapy for patients suffering from:
  • Food allergies
  • Candida
  • Mold
  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Animal dander
  • Asthma
  • Eczema
  • Hay fever
  • Hives
  • Migraines
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Chronic headaches
  • Irritable bowel
