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:
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 be infused into the blood.
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.
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 for 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.
