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

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.
