|Is Bioidentical Hormone
Replacement Therapy safe?
The truth is that you do not have to live with menopausal
symptoms. Evidence continues to mount that receiving hormone
replacement therapy with natural hormones at the onset of menopause is
not only safe but important to a woman’s ongoing health. Even
more importantly, data now exists that pharmaceutical hormones can be
dangerous substitutes for natural hormones which are identical in every
way to those produced in the body. In fact, many now feel that
bioidentical hormones may provide an anti-aging effect.
Research supports the use of all-natural, biologically identical
hormones, showing them to be free of the serious side effects
associated with synthetic pharmaceuticals. Biologically identical
hormones, have, on the contrary, demonstrated the ability to support
good health, slow the aging process, and alleviate menopausal

How can Chelation Therapy help
Chelation Therapy is the only established therapy that has been shown
to be capable of reversing the symptoms of heart disease, with over 1
million cases successfully treated in the U.S. in the past 50 years. A
course of treatment consists of 20 weekly infusions with a heavy metal
binder, EDTA, which acts by removing heavy metal toxins from the lining
of blood vessels thereby helping to restore circulation to all tissues
of the body. It is also and antioxidant. Because of its actions, it is
able to benefit all expressions of cardiovascular disease including
heart disease, stroke, poor circulation in the extremeties,
hypertension and diabetes. Empiric evidence has shown that patients
with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s
disease), lupus, scleroderma, venous ulcers and macular degeneration
are also likely to benefit from this treatment. Studies invloving those
who have undergone Chelation Therapy have demonstrated as much as a 90%
reduction in their risk of cancer. With its multiple health benefits
and its ability to effectively reverse heart disease, it is often
considered the therapy of choice in the management of heart disease by
many European countries.
is our approach to treating Lyme Disease?
This fastidious infection can be treated at all stages with a holistic
approach combining well tolerated IV infusions of colloidal silver
(silver hydrosol) with a 3 component herbal formulation. Oral colloidal
silver is frequently added. Antibiotics may be used in selected cases.
A state of the art serologic test for Lyme disease, the direct
fluorescent antibody/flow cytometry may be used for diagnosis and
management. Generally the program is continued for 6-12 months in
chronic cases, with shorter courses if the case is acute. Treatment is
stopped after the patient is symptom free for 1 month. Supplements are
added throughout the course for immune and energy support and for
management of Herxheimer reactions (die off reaction to bacterial
breakdown products) which may appear at the start of treatment. An
anti-inflammatory diet is advised. Lyme co-infections with Babesia,
Bartonella, Erlichia and yeast can be identified with standard
serologic tests and managed with an effective 4 component herbal
formulation. This approach provides Lyme disease sufferers with a
workable and quite effective alternative to the only conventional
option for treatment of chronic LD- the prolonged use of antibiotics-
which is often ineffective and counterproductive.
SCENAR is a computerized biofeedback device designed 30 years ago for
use in the Russian space program. Based on extensive experience around
the world involving more than 13,000 cases, SCENAR has been found to be
highly effective for the treatment of pain and can be equally
beneficial in a broad range of diseases. Nearly 80% of patients have
been found to benefit from its use. The worldwide use of this
computerized biofeedback device attests to its effectiveness and
safety. Arthritis, back pain, neck pain herniated discs, headaches and
traumatic injury are some of the conditions successfully treated by
this technique, which has the ability to trigger the body to heal
itself on a cellular level. Other electrotherapy devices do not have
this action and therefore cannot achieve the same results as SCENAR.
This is one of the most effective devices for alleviating the suffering
of those with back pain or other chronic pain syndromes, in combination
with a healthy lifestyle and diet. During SCENAR treatments, the
electronic device is run along the skin over acupuncture meridians and
anatomic regions until a response is obtained. Several one half hour
sessions are usually necessary to achieve the desired effect.
