Customized Medical Diagnostics and Evaluation
Heart Rate Variability:
Heart rate variability (HRV) refers to the beat-to-beat alterations in heart rate. Under resting conditions, the ECG of healthy individuals exhibits periodic variation in R-R intervals. This rhythmic phenomenon, known as respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA), fluctuates with the phase of respiration -- cardio-acceleration during inspiration, and cardio-deceleration during expiration. RSA is predominantly mediated by respiratory gating of parasymphathetic efferent activity to the heart: vagal efferent traffic to the sinus node occurs primarily in phase with expiration and is absent or attenuated during inspiration. Atropine abolishes RSA. Reduced HRV has thus been used as a marker of reduced vagal activity. However, because HRV is a cardiac measure derived from the ECG, it is not possible to distinguish reduced central vagal activity (in the vagal centers of the brain) from reduced peripheral activity (the contribution of the target organ -- the sinus node -- or the afferent/efferent pathways conducting the neural impulses to/from the brain).
Bioimpedance testing is a non-invasive tool for objectively monitoring body composition- a key indicator of cell health. The Biomarkers 2000 Body Scan Analyzer provides a direct reading of the impedance of the human body and estimates of mass distribution and body water compartments. You will receive a printout that indicates:
Body Fat Percentage
Body Hydration Status
Cell Health Status
Basal Metabolic Rate
Body composition analysis is used in preventative, therapeutic, and research applications. The test procedure takes only a few minutes. Following the test you will receive a 15-minute consultation with one of our Nutritionists to go over the results please follow the pre-test guidelines. Bioimpedance (BIA) body composition analyzers measure body composition electronically. They do not diagnose disease or recommend treatment regimes. Only a qualified health care professional can make these judgements.
Electrodermal testing was developed as an aid in prescribing homeopathic remedies but now widely used to assess an individual's allergic status to foods and aeroallergens. It is based on the observation that small changes in electrical impedance in the skin occur on an acupuncture point in response to substances placed in an electrical cicuit.
TurboSonic Vibration Therapy
TurboSonic® consists of a sonic (sound) vibrating platform that the user stands on or performs exercises on which stimulates bones, muscles, blood vessels and cells in a manner that promotes their rapid development and circulation.
The sonic vertical movement of the plate stimulates the body’s natural “stretch reflex” which causes a spontaneous muscle contraction to instinctively stretch and contract: both movements occur at varying rates between 3-50 times per second. (3Hz to 50Hz) This movement produces mechanical oscillations with an average cycle length of about 40 msec, which is the time required to induce a natural monosynaptic stretching reflex in the respective muscle via the muscle spindle during one up and down vertical movement. The neuromuscular system reacts to this stimulation by a chain of rapid muscle contractions which result in entire-body vibration.
Exercise causes the body to tire; rest allows the body to recover. By repeating this process, the body adjusts to the level of effort, resulting in an increase in physical performance. This phenomenon, called super-compensation, similarly occurs when training on the TurboSonic® platform. However, compared with traditional training methods, greater results are achieved and hormonal production is increased in much less time when training on the TurboSonic®.
TurboSonic® comes standard with seven preset automatic program modes to provide a variety of treatment and workout options with multiple frequency and intensity variations per session. If different parameters are desired, the manual controls may be customized for effective patient treatment or personalized workout. Frequencies can be adjusted from 6Hz to 45Hz on the Deluxe model and 3Hz to 50Hz on the Premium model. Each model can adjust the amplitude from 0 to 100 to suit the user's condition.
The automatic modes are preset to 10 minute countdown sessions and depending on the mode selection, users can burn between 100 to 300 calories. In the manual mode, users can program the session in 1 minute intervals as well as manually adjust the frequency and amplitude (volume).
The LCD displays seven treatment modes including frequency, amplitude, calorie consumption and countdown timer.
You will see the results of increased flexibility each time you do a SWBV work-out. Touch your toes before your session, and again after the session. You’ll be amazed. And, by the end of the session you wont even be sweating or feel fatigued. What you will feel is less stress and more energy!
TurboSonic BENEFITS: NEW: Sonic Whole Body Vibration Therapy
TurboSonic® - Sonic Whole Body Vibration (SWBV) is an advanced patented technology that is used by major medical, rehabilitation, therapeutic centers, senior centers, spas and gyms across the country and around the world.
The therapy consists of standing upright on a TurboSonic® platform that produces sonic vertical vibrations from 3Hz to 50Hz with variations of amplitude from 0 to 100. These sonic vibrations are transferred to your body, stimulating absolutely every part of your body, from your cells to the blood vessels, to your organs and muscles.
These muscle contractions stimulate a dramatic increase in critical blood flow to joints and their connective tissues throughout the body. The result is reduced muscle/tendon/joint-related pain with an increase in bone/muscle mass, strength and flexibility.
OMDAMED: Diagnostic Evaluation and Electromedicine Treatments
ONDAMED is a battery-powered biofeedback device that a medical practitioner uses to determine which frequencies of sound, as well as accompanying weak pulsed electromagnetic fields, cause a response in a patient’s autonomic nervous system. Temporary stimulation by these frequencies, combined with the patient’s cognitive and non-cognitive participation, promotes relaxation, muscle re-education, and rehabilitation that returns the body to its former state of wellness.

Regeneration Medicine Treatments
The lymphatic system is a complicated network of vessels, ducts, and nodes that moves fluid between the cells and tissues, and produces and distributes the infection fighting and scavenging cells of the body. It feeds literally every tissue and organ. Though less well known than the blood circulation, it is truly another circulatory system that complements and feeds the blood. It is the TRANSPORTATION highway for the immune and repair functions of the body! When functioning properly it effectively cleanses the tissues, aids in cellular repair, and eliminates toxins. We call it “the information highway” of the immune system, creating vitality, beauty, and preventing illness.
Biophoton Light Therapy:
Biophoton therapy is the application of light to particular areas of the skin for healing purposes. The light, or photons, that are emitted by these units are absorbed by the skin's photoreceptors and then travel through the body's nervous system to the brain, where they help regulate what is referred to as our human bio-energy. By stimulating certain areas of the body with specific quantities of light, biophoton therapy can help reduce pain as well as aid in various healing processes throughout the body.
The theory behind biophoton therapy is based on the work of Dr. Franz Morell and has been expanded by the work of Doctors L.C. Vincent and F.A. Popp, who theorized that light can affect the electromagnetic oscillation, or waves of the body and regulate enzyme activity.
Energy is necessary for any life form to exist. When this energy becomes disrupte, a number of bodily functions can be affected. Through the use of biophoton therapy, this energy can be rebalanced and strengthened, thus alleviating and improving numerous health conditions. Since body and mind are connected through this energy, we are not only able to improve physical conditions, but this therapy can also aid in achieving a greater state of mental and emotional health.
Initially, biophoton therapy was used primarily for cosmetic, skin care, and scalp conditions. It was only much later that their effectiveness was discovered for treating chronic pain and a variety of immunological disorders.
Ionized Oxygen Therapy (IOT) has been utilized and researched since the 1920’s, with most of the work being done in Germany. IOT is a very basic and far-reaching therapy. It affects every aspect of physiology and metabolism, and can be used in any condition. IOT is an inhaled therapy using medical grade oxygen that has been treated to produce either a negative or positive charge on the oxygen. In general, negative ions have a relaxing effect; positive ions have a stimulating effect. However, both ions have a profound regulatory effect on the nervous, immune, gastrointestinal, intercellular matrix, and inflammatory systems of the body. They also act to change the body’s “terrain”, which refers primarily to the physical characteristics of the fluids of the body. These characteristics help determine what types of illnesses and infections a person is susceptible to, and changing these physical parameters helps to eliminate these susceptibilities and strengthen one’s overall health.
Intravenous Therapies: Natural Formulas & Supplements
Intravenous Vitamin C:
A popular oral supplement especially for colds and flu, vitamin C has also been used intravenously. Is there a scientific basis to this controversial therapy? The recommended daily intake (RDA) for vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is 60 mg. This is enough to prevent scurvy, but there has long been a debate about whether larger doses can be helpful. Humans are, after all, among the rare mammals who cannot produce their own vitamin C. It has been suggested that if we did, our production would amount to several grams a day. Many people take large doses of the vitamin when they catch a cold, though not all studies have shown any benefit to this practice. Proponents of the vitamin have criticized those studies for using too low doses. We do know that vitamin C is safe even in very large amounts, although it can cause stomach upset and diarrhea. This may be lessened by taking a buffered (salt) form, such as calcium ascorbate.
Klenner was also an advocate of using intravenous vitamin C for cancer, which has later become the main use of this therapy. For a long time it has been scoffed at as quackery, with studies finding little or no benefit – but most of these studies were done using oral vitamin C. In contrast, a recent study conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that high concentrations of vitamin C (achieved by I.V. doses similar to those used by Klenner) had anticancer effects in 75 percent of the tested cancer cell lines. Non-cancerous cells were unaffected. Tumor weight was reduced by 41-53 percent in animals with advanced cancer.

Q2 Energy Spa:
The complex fields of the Q² Energy Spa liberate the energy in water that your body can then absorb to increase your biological energy. This energy rebalances meridians by permeating and realigning your body’s energy field…plus much more!
The Q2 Water Energy Spa (formerly known as the BEFE) is a revolutionary Hydro-Therapy system that was developed by Q-Tech Laboratories of Australia. THE Q2 ENERGY SPA enhances and amplifies the ability of the body to heal itself. The procedure takes 25-35 minutes, is done in an ordinary bathtub of water or a footbath, and requires no extensive training to perform. Q2 therapy is based on the fact that all living things produce a form of organic electricity or Bio-Charge. The Q2 system produces a complex electromagnetic waveform that resonates throughout the water and interacts with it in a way that is synergistic with the bioelectric state of the body. No other product on the market can copy and create this type of bio-charge based on feedback from the individual. Absorption of this bio-charge has been shown to increase the potential voltage in the body's cell membranes, thus helping to maintain cellular function. The Q2 Water Energy Spa can possibly be shown to stimulate a release of toxins and foreign material, often resulting in added discoloration of the water as the toxic release occurs. Note that most of the color change in the foot bath water is due to the presence of minerals that precipitate out of solution due to the effect of electrolysis from the Q2 metal rings.
BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy:
The word HORMONE is derived from the Greek work hormano, meaning "to arouse or excite". Hormones are chemical messengers that are usually secreted from the endocrine glands into the bloodstream. Once secreted, hormones then bind with appropriate receptor sites present on the cell membranes of their target organs. "Hormones and receptor sites work like a key and a door," explains Michael Galitzer, M.D., Co-founder of The American Health Institute in Los Angeles, California. "In order to get into the cell and instruct the DNA to make cell proteins, a hormone must first bind to its receptor. This unlocks the door and delivers a message to the cell.”
Hormones play many important roles in the health and maintenance of the body, including influencing the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals and water. They also regulate DNA and RNA production and the subsequent synthesis of cell proteins, are involved in the production of enzymes, and influence the energy production of mitochondria (microscopic structures present in every cell, responsible for converting proteins, carbohydrates, and fats into energy or ATP). In addition, hormones regulate the body's response to stress, kidney function, blood sugar balance, menstruation, and sexual function.
As we age, however, hormone production in the body declines. Since hormones affect virtually every bodily process, low levels of certain hormones and impaired communication within the endocrine system creates havoc with all other body systems, including the immune, cardiovascular, detoxification, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems. "A loss of hormonal balance, as occurs with aging, plays a predominant role in mental and emotional symptoms and in all illness," Dr. Galitzer says. "Restoration of this balance is ideally achieved through BioIdentical hormone replacement therapy.”
Nutritional deficiencies, lack of exercise, and exposure to toxins, can all result in changes in hormone production that can ultimately lead to diminished biological functioning. Stress can also seriously impact hormone production. "Chronic stress among individuals in their prime results in the same blood hormone levels as those of a 70-year-old," Dr. Galitzer says. "This is one of the reasons that we age prematurely with chronic stress.”
Other factors that can contribute to hormonal imbalances include endocrine disorders, malnutrition, sleep disorders, exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs), lack of sunlight, hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, and the use of over-the-counter and prescription medications (pain relievers, heart medications, anti-anxiety drugs, sleeping pills, and non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin, ibuprofen , and indomethacin).

Apex: RegenRx Homeopathic Formulas:
Regeneration is defined as the natural renewal of a cell, tissue, or organ. Life consists of anabolic and catabolic processes. In catabolic processes,s are destroyed; in anabolic they are created anew.
Cells are constantly dying in order to keep us alive. The stomach creates a new lining every five days. (If the stomach lining was not continually replaced, hydrochloric acid from the stomach juices would burn a hole in the stomach, which would soon cause death.) Skin replaces itself every 30 days. Every three months we have a new skeleton. The red blood cells have a life span of 120 days, and must then be replaced. Each of the different tissues of the body has its own natural life cycles. IT IS THE AIM OF REGENERATION THERAPY TO STIMULATE THE PROCESS OF SELFRENEWAL.
In clinical Bioenergetics, when a patient with numerous physical complaints first comes to see a practitioner, many of the important organs of the body are toxic and weak (not functioning at optimal capacity). The process of drainage and detoxification will reduce toxicity in the body, but the organ function may still remain weak and susceptible to future physical, emotional, and nutritional stressors. RegenRx™ remedies are intended to address this issue, for their main purpose is to strengthen the energetically weak organs.
As practitioners we have treated numerous patients who initially improved with drainage and detoxification, only to hit a point where, despite every therapy that was given, the patients failed to make any further improvement. This is referred to as the Plateau Stage, and is usually very frustrating for both patient and practitioner. Many patients stop their therapy or go to see another practitioner.
The RegenRx™ remedies are ideally suited to this Plateu Stage. It is at this time that the toxic load in the body has been greatly reduced, but the tissues and organs are still weak. They need to be tonified and strengthened, in the same way that you would build muscles at the gym. Repetitive intake of the subtle energies carried in the RegenRx™ formulas will help strengthen the organs that are still weak, just as repetitive exercise enhances muscle tone.
Research has shown that the pituitary gland is not only the “Master Gland” of the body, but that it’s also sends out a signal which promotes regeneration of other glands and the major organs of the body. This elaborate process appears to involve growth hormone. Thus, strengthening the pituitary gland can assist with regeneration throughout the entire body.
WHY USE HOMEOPATHY FOR REGENERATION
Why not use nutritional supplements, herbs, vitamins, minerals, and foods for regeneration? Why use homeopathy? To answer this, we need to briefly review the biophysics of regeneration.
Each organ system, while connected to the essential life force or Chi of a person, is also a unique Bioenergy system, vibrating at a certain resonant frequent cy. An imbalance in the organ’s frequency represents a disturbance in its Bioenergy, and slows the process of doing what it knows to do naturally—that is, to regenerate and renew itself. In order to stimulate regeneration, cells and organs need a specific input of energy of certain wave forms, which correlate to the weakened organ. They need the right amount of energy couple with the right message. The ideal regenerative remedy is booster shot of subtle energy, which imprints the proper energy pattern into the matrix of that organ system, producing a message, which ultimately returns that organ system to its natural resonant frequency.
The best way to stimulate this process is through the use of homeopathy. We must remember that concentrations of the key nutrients in the blood and in the intracellular fluid—which are necessary for cellular life to be sustained a renewed—are expressed in millions moles (infinitesimal quantities). Homeopathy also deals with micro-concentrations of substances, which are necessary for cellular life to be sustained and renewed. Vitamins, minerals, foods, and herbs need to be broken down, and thus require energy for their conversion to micronutrients, which can be used by the body. For many sick patients, these expenditures of energy for the processes of digestion and conversion to micro-concentrations may further deplete their energy, thus impeding regeneration. Let begin, therefore, with homeopathic micro doses and converse energy.

Acupuncture is just one of the elements that make up the discipline often referred to as traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine, or TCM, is a combination of physical, mental and spiritual practices that include techniques such as massage therapy and acupuncture, along with herbal medicine and various forms of mind-body exercise such as Daijiquan (Taie Chi Chuan) and Qigong (Chi Gong).
When an acupuncture needle is inserted into a traditional acupuncture point, certain nerve fibers are stimulated, which results in a nerve impulse being sent to the spinal cord. Here, endorphogenic cells are stimulated to release endorphins (brain chemicals) such as enkephalin and dynorphin. These substances provide local inhibition (blocking) of the incoming pain signal.
In addition to causing effects in the spinal cord, the nerve impulse produced y the acupuncture needle is also transmitted to the paeriaqueductal gray area of the mid-brain, where erkephalin is released. Erkephalin, in turn, brings about the release of the monoamine neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine in the spinal cord. These monoamines play a role in suppressing the transmission of the pain impulse. In addition to its role in reducing pain, serotonin is involved in producing an antidepressant effect in the brain. In fact, many of the newest antidepressant drugs work by prolonging the effect of serotonin in the brain.
A third effect brought about by acupuncture is the release of beta-endorphin and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) from the pituitary gland into the bloodstream and cerebrospinal fluid. The endorphins produce system-wide pain relief, remote from the area where the acupuncture needle was inserted. ACTH, in turn, activates the adrenal gland to release cortisol into the bloodstream. Cortisol is a naturally occurring steroid substance that has anti-inflammatory properties.
The net result of these three areas being stimulated is an inhibition of the incoming pain sensation locally, a general, morphinelike, pain-relieving effect throughout the body, and anti-inflammatory effect, and a general sense of improved well-being.
The precise choice of acupuncture points, regarding whether they are near the painful site or farther away, determines which of the three pathways mentioned are primarily activated. Placing needles near the painful site brings about a more intense pain relief, because it activates all three centers (spinal cord, midbrain, and pituitary gland). Local needling also maximizes inhibition of the incoming pain signal at the segmental region of the spinal cord. Needling acupuncture points distant to the painful area perdominately affects the mid-brain and pituitary gland. In general, a combination of local and distant acupuncture points are used together during a treatment, in order to maximize the effects at all three centers.
