Every day, there are thousands of biochemical processes happening within our bodies that require vitamins and minerals for their proper function. These nutrients can be obtained from many sources, including the foods we eat and select nutritional supplements, such as multivitamins or a B-complex. However, we can only absorb a certain amount from these sources. Infusing these substances directly into the blood circulation allows us to provide a higher concentration of vitamins and minerals than would be possible by taking supplements. This allows for rapid delivery of these nutrients directly to our cells and tissues by bypassing the gastrointestinal tract. Some other benefits include the ability to provide nutrients and medicines that would otherwise be difficult to due to their poor absorption, or any barriers to normal absorption, such as a digestive illness. What other substances can we use? In addition to vitamins and minerals, botanical extracts and antioxidant compounds can also be infused if required.
Regenerative Injection Therapies
At Paradigm Health Group, we employ several injection therapies to repair damaged or degenerative tissue. The purpose behind these therapies is to stimulate your body to accelerate its own healing processes through use of proliferative or biological agents.
Musculoskeletal Pain, Joint Pain and Degeneration, Torn meniscus, Osteoarthritis, Back and Neck Pain, Herniated Discs, Sports Injuries, Tennis Elbow, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
After an injury, the body uses inflammation to repair the damage. Prolotherapy is a type of injection therapy that uses varying concentrations of dextrose, typically between 10 to 25. This is used to stimulate a localized wound healing cascade (three phases – inflammation, regeneration and remodeling) – primarily ligaments, tendons and cartilage. The aim of this therapy is to strengthen and rebuild these structures to become stronger and tighter.
2. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelets, which are contained in blood plasma, release numerous growth factors that are essential for the healing of injured tissue. Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a type of regenerative injection therapy that uses concentrated platelets to accelerate this repair. These platelets are concentrated by centrifuging a sample of venous blood, thereby removing the red blood cells and a portion of plasma from the injection solution. The remaining PRP solution contains approximately five times as many platelets as whole blood, releasing growth factor concentrations up to 300 times greater.
Ozone injections are an excellent treatment option for infectious, circulatory or structural illnesses. This treatment is often combined with Prolotherapy (“Prolozone”) or Platelet Rich Plasma, primarily for the treatment of herniated or degenerative discs.
4. Neural Therapy
Neural therapy is the practice administering localized injections of an anesthetic substance, with the aim of restoring function of the autonomic nervous system to areas where damage or impedance to neurological signaling may have occurred. Surgical scars are a typical example; however any area experiencing interference may result in referred pain syndromes around the body.
In medicine, Ozone has numerous well-established properties. It is a powerful antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral. It has been recognized by both the FDA and EPA that ozone destroys 99.9992% of all pathogenic organisms. This makes it an excellent therapeutic tool for treatment of illnesses caused by infection. In the body, ozone also has a number of other beneficial effects, including enhancing circulation, stimulating the immune system, stimulating oxygen metabolism and release of oxygen to the tissues from hemoglobin. Ozone can be administered intravenously, by injection, or insufflated rectally. It can also be applied in a topical carrier solution (such as olive oil), or via bagging method (for use in treating ulcers, burns, or wide-spread infection).
Infection (all types), Circulatory and Vascular Diseases, Diabetes, Cancer, Ulcers, Burns, Herniated Discs
Ozone injections are an excellent treatment option for infectious, circulatory or structural illnesses. This treatment is often combined with Prolotherapy (“Prolozone”} or Platelet rich Plasma, primarily for the treatment of herniated or degenerative discs. For more information on ozone, click here.
2. Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen peroxide is naturally produced by our bodies, and functions as the immune system’s first line of defense again invading pathogens. Compounded for medical application at a concentration of 3%, hydrogen peroxide has many uses in the body, including destruction of many types of pathogenic organisms, oxygenation in the bloodstream and tissues, and reversal of arterial plaques. For our infusions, we include both magnesium and manganese sulfate for vascular protection.
Many pharmaceutical drugs have their origin in plant extracts. However, the plants used as a whole rather than its parts, provides greater and more natural effect. Naturopathic doctors use plants alone or in combination as needed for their healing effects and nutritional value. These come in different forms including teas, tinctures capsules and salves. The use of plants for healing dates back to the beginnings of civilization and is the foundation of modem pharmacology. Plant substances from around the world are used for their healing effects and nutritional value.
Clinical Nutrition and Supplementation
Mental attitudes and emotional states are important elements in healing and in disease. NDs are trained in counseling, nutritional balancing and stress management. They also attend to the environmental, physical health, nutritional health and lifestyle factors that affect their patient’s health. NDs help patients to make effective lifestyle choices.
Metabolic Balance® is an innovative all-natural nutrition program that is based on intensive support alongside an individual nutrition plan.
PsychoSomatic Energetics (PSE) is a revolutionary natural healing method from Europe that tests the and treats the autonomic (unconscious) energy centres of the body.
Neuro Emotional Technique
Neuro Emotional TechniqueTM (NET) is a mind body stress reduction technique and is based on proven combination of scientific research and ancient Eastern healing by acknowledging the relationship between the body’s emotional health, environmental toxicity, nutritional balance and structural integrity. These emotions can be recent or stored emotion that can negatively affect us long after the original event that caused them. NET can help identify some of these emotions and help the body release them. Many physical ailments may also carry an emotional component and this technique can help identify and clear these emotions.
