The Myers’ Cocktail

The Myers’ Cocktail combines magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C. This combination of nutrients is versatile for immune boosting and adrenal support.

Learn More About The Myers’ Cocktail

Myers’ cocktails have been found effective against a variety of conditions including chronic fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, asthma, seasonal allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, cardiovascular disease, adrenal fatigue, acute/chronic infections, chronic pain, migraines and quick recovery for athletes. Nutrient depletion can be caused by poor diet, refined foods, alcohol, smoking, chronic illness and emotional & physical stress. Stress “eats up” nutrients, especially B vitamins and magnesium.

Vitamin C has antioxidant, antiviral, antihistamine and in high doses, pro-oxidant anti-cancer properties. I.V. Vitamin C is indicated for immune support, allergies, wound healing, viral conditions and in some cases acute bacterial infections. Vitamin C can also be given to cancer patients with approval from an oncologist.

Magnesium deficiency is common, which may result in muscle spasms and fatigue. Replenishing this mineral is especially useful to treat asthma (bronchial spasms), high blood pressure (spasm of blood vessels), menstrual cramps (spasm of the uterus), migraines (spasm of blood vessels), and adrenal fatigue.

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant which neutralizes free radicals, enhances the immune system, and improves liver detoxification. It also improves symptoms related to neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and nerve tissue damage from chemotherapy and diabetes. Glutathione is also highly effective to speed recovery from respiratory & sinus infections.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a key antioxidant possessing neuroprotective and anti-aging properties. ALA is both water and fat soluble, allowing it to eliminate free radicals throughout the body including the brain. ALA enhances the activity of vitamins C and E, Co-Q 10 and increases levels of glutathione in the cells. ALA is effective for conditions such as asthma, cataracts, metal poisoning, radiation exposure, heart and liver disease, diabetic neuropathy, autoimmune diseases, inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis.

Nutritional

Intravenous solutions for sterile water with a high concentration of vitamins.
These therapies boost the immune system, which is the body’s number one defense against disease. Nutritional therapy is generally the first IV treatment administered to a new patient

Learn More About Nutritional IV Therapy

The nutrients enter the body directly at the cellular level where they will have the highest benefit. IV therapy bypasses the liver, allowing for higher absorption and utilization of the nutrients, which if orally ingested, would be eliminated by the body during metabolism.

IV vitamin therapy can be used either proactively to maintain wellness or to treat many acute and chronic conditions.

All IV therapies are administered with the highest quality injectable vitamins and minerals, mixed under a sterile hood by Registered Nurses under the supervision of a medical provider.  They are administered in a pleasant, nature-infused atmosphere- all while the patient relaxes in a zero gravity Human Touch recliner.

WHAT DISEASES OR CONDITIONS CAN BE TREATED WITH IV VITAMIN THERAPY?

Whether you currently have a medical condition that can be treated with a personalized intravenous vitamin treatment plan, or if you simply want to maintain a healthy balance, IV vitamin therapy may be the right approach for you. Once it is determined that IV therapy is medically appropriate and safe for you, our providers will discuss the formula that can best help you. We can help you treat a variety of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Cold/ Flu

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Lyme disease

  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) & IBS

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Malabsorption Syndromes

  • Migraines

Oxidative Therapy

We know there can be no life if oxidation does not occur. Oxidation is the process through which the body converts sugar into energy.

Learn More About Oxidative Therapy

The body also uses oxidation as its first line of defense against bacteria, virus, yeast and parasites. Even breathing oxygen is an oxidative process. When we use the principals of oxidation to bring about improvements in the body it is called a therapy herein referred to as Oxidative Therapy.

A number of substances are known to cause oxidation in the body, but the most important of these is hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide, when exposed to blood or other body fluids containing the enzyme catalase, is chemically split into oxygen and water. A small amount of hydrogen peroxide can supply large amounts of oxygen to the tissue.

Injections of Hydrogen Peroxide are not new. Its intravenous use was first reported by Dr. T.H. Oliver in the British Medical Journal (Lancet) in 1920. The use of hydrogen peroxide injections to generate oxygen in the body has been studied at many major medical research centers throughout the world. Today, between 2 and 100 scientific articles are published each month about the chemical and biological effects of hydrogen peroxide.

There are many theories about the different functions of hydrogen peroxide in the body and a great deal of scientific material supports almost every one. Hydrogen peroxide is produced in the body in different amounts for different purposes. It is part of a system which helps your body regulate all living cell membranes.  Scientists are discovering the function of hydrogen peroxide in the body is far more complex and important than previously realized.

Triple Oxygen Therapy (Ozone)

Ozone therapy is the use of medical ozone to treat a wide variety of health problems. It’s been used for decades around the world and has a long history of safe and effective use.

Learn More About Triple Oxygen Therapy (Ozone)

While relatively common in Germany and other parts of Europe, ozone therapy has been growing in popularity in the US to treat a variety of health problems and diseases. We are proud to have been using ozone therapy at our Clinic for more than 15 years.

Some hospitals now use ozone to disinfect rooms and it has long been used as a water disinfectant. The same properties that make it a very good anti-microbial agent result in a form of therapy that works excellent for several different health problems.

Ozone therapy works through several mechanisms.  First and foremost, ozone therapy has been shown to inactivate viruses, bacteria, yeast, fungi and protozoa.  It also stimulates the body’s natural defenses by increasing oxygen metabolism and activates the immune system by increasing the body’s production of interferon and interleukin-2.

The most common form of medical ozone in the US is “Major Autohemotherapy” or MAH. This involves taking about 250ml of blood from a patient, exposing it to ozone, and dripping it back into a patient via an IV.  The procedure takes about 30-40 minutes.

Medical ozone can also be delivered by “Insufflation” – where we introduce ozone gas rectally, vaginally, or in the ear to treat various infections, viruses and other pathogens. Insufflation is a less invasive and less expensive alternative to Major Autohemotherapy for systemic health problems, but typically requires more frequent visits.

BENEFITS OF OZONE THERAPY IN THE BODY

  1. purifies the blood & lymphatic system

  2. detoxifies the liver

  3. decreases uric acid in the body

  4. improves circulation and oxygen supply

  5. decreases fat (cholesterol and triglycerides)

  6. kills viruses, bacteria and fungus

  7. improves white blood cell activity (which neutralize viruses, bacteria, fungi & cancer)

  8. improves cellular metabolism

  9. slows down the aging process

Ultraviolet Light Therapy (UVBI)

UVBI therapy utilizes Ultraviolet light, a light which is well-known for its ability to purify air, sterilize water and destroy microorganisms in waste products.

Learn More About Ultraviolet Light Therapy (UVBI)

Use of UV light to treat disease began back in the 1870s and continued until the1950s when most mainstream medical doctors began to use vaccines and antibiotics to treat their patients.

UVB Ultraviolet Therapy (or Photo-oxidation therapy) is a biological healing modality utilizing ultraviolet irradiation of the blood with Ultraviolet A,B, & C light. UVBI therapy treatment consists of the insertion of a needle into a vein and the withdrawal of 60 or more cc’s of blood that is passed through quartz tubing where it is exposed to the UV light briefly. The treated blood is then directly returned to the patient’s bloodstream. The only discomfort is during the insertion of the needle and is minimal. The effects are long lasting and there is an absence of harmful side effects. The simple treatments are easily combined with other medical procedures and are economical, dependable and gentle for the patient.

Can produce the following beneficial photochemical reactions:

  • Improved micro circulation and oxygenation of tissues

  • Anti-inflammatory effects

  • Stimulation of the immune system

  • Increased tolerance of the body towards radiation or chemotherapy.

  • Cardiovascular protection through increased metabolism of cholesterol, uric acid, and glucose

  • Resolution of vascular spasms

  • Powerful anti-infection properties

WHAT CAN UVBI THERAPY TREAT?

UVBI Therapy treats conditions which patients have previously felt they would have to “live with”.

Such conditions can be greatly relieved with this combination of therapies:

  • Cancer

  • Hepatitis B and C

  • Lyme disease

  • Herpes Virus

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • Staph infections

  • Autoimmune Conditions

  • Bacterial/ Viral Infections

Vitamin C (High Dose)

Vitamin C is an anti-aging inflammatory. It is an antioxidant that plays a key role in making collagen. When taken by intravenous infusion, vitamin C can reach much higher levels in the blood than when the same amount is taken by
mouth. High-dose vitamin C has been studied as a treatment for patients with cancer since the 1970s. Research has shown intravenous Vitamin C to have cytotoxic (anti-cancer)

Chelation

Chelation is the chemical process by which a metal or mineral (such as lead, mercury, copper, iron, arsenic, aluminum, calcium, etc.) is bonded to another substance. It is a natural process, basic to life itself.

Learn More About Chelation

Chelation is one mechanism by which such common substances as aspirin, antibiotics, vitamins, minerals and trace elements work in the body. EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid) is a synthetic amino acid which has the ability to attach itself to metals and minerals, forming a particular kind of bond called a chelate. Heavier metals such as lead have a greater affinity for EDTA and form stronger bonds.

What is the process?

It is the intravenous infusion of a synthetic amino acid, EDTA, into the bloodstream. As it moves through the blood vessels, it cleanses away toxic metals and calcium deposits that form plaque. You may benefit from EDTA Chelation Therapy if you have or have had many different problems including: angioplasty, leg cramps, poor circulation, diabetes, bypass surgery, arthritis and angina.

Wellness Saunas

Hocatt™ Ozone Sauna

HOCATT stands for “Hyperthermic Ozone and Carbonic Acid Transdermal Therapy” and the machine acts as a personal ozone steam sauna.

Learn More About Hocatt™ Ozone Sauna

HOCATT stands for “Hyperthermic Ozone and Carbonic Acid Transdermal Therapy” and the machine acts as a personal ozone steam sauna, in which patients sit with just their head exposed to the air, while their body receives the benefits of an infusion of ozone, carbon dioxide, steam, Photon light and oxygen.

The steam sauna heats up to a comfortable temperature and then carbon dioxide gas (carbonic acid) is infused into the sauna. After this, the carbon dioxide is removed and the sauna is infused with ozone gas. The heat and the carbon dioxide serve to open up the circulation to the skin so that when the ozone gas is infused it is absorbed by the skin into the general circulation.

As steam gently fills the sauna, the Photon infrared light penetrates the skin to help increase blood flow and circulation. Photon breaks any painful inflammatory cycle by dilating small blood and lymphatic vessels. This increase in circulation can result in accelerated healing and pain relief.

Throughout, the patient’s head is outside the ozone steam cabinet and they are given an additional boost by inhaling pure oxygen throughout the 30-minute session. Delivered via two small tubes inserted into the nasal passages, this breath of “fresh air” helps to boost the immune system, reduce stress, boost energy and even fight off cancer.

The health benefits of having a session in the HOCATT zone steam sauna are extensive. It increases circulation, promotes energy, naturally stimulates anti-oxidant enzyme production, improves absorption of nutrients, improves skin tone and helps relieve many chronic health problems.

  • Benefits of HOCATT:

  • Increases blood circulation

  • Increases blood oxygen level and metabolism (anti-aging)

  • Increases core body temperature

  • Combats and disposes of pathogens and toxins (detox)

  • Relaxes muscle tension

  • Increases energy levels

  • Increases Seratonin levels (relaxing)

  • Burns up to 600 calories per session

  • Activates skin tissue.

Infrared Sauna

Infrared Sauna benefits you by helping your detoxification process, promotes relaxation, helps relieve pain, promotes weight loss, improves circulation, and purifies your skin.

Learn More About Infrared Sauna

BENEFITS OF INFRARED SAUNA THERAPY

1. Detoxification

Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins.

2. Relaxation

Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.

3. Pain Relief

If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles.

4. Weight Loss

The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body must work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in increased weight loss. An article, titled Effect of Sweating, in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories.

5. Improved Circulation

As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions, especially in the middle-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.

6. Skin Purification

Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.

Prolozone Injections

Prolozone® is a homeopathic/oxygen-ozone injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Frank Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculo-skeletal and joint pain.

Learn More About Prolozone Injections

It is excellent for all forms of musculo-skeletal and joint pain, including chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic knees, and shoulder and elbow pain. Because in many cases Prolozone corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free.

Prolozone is a form of non-surgical ligament reconstruction and is a permanent treatment for chronic pain. Prolozone is a connective tissue injection therapy of collagen producing substances and ozone gas which can reconstruct damaged or weakened connective tissue in and around joints. These substances are injected into the damaged connective tissue in and around a joint to rebuild the damaged areas.

By repairing the connective tissue this is all that is needed to permanently reverse chronic pain.

Prolozone Therapy is an injection technique like Prolotherapy that uses ozone. The use of ozone causes the joint to heal much more quickly than in traditional Prolotherapy. This is because ozone is a highly reactive molecule and when injected into a joint capsule it can stimulate the fibroblastic joint repairing abilities.

Prolozone is derived from the word ozone and the Latin word “proli” which means to regenerate or re-build. It literally means re-building tissues with ozone. It is important to understand what the word Prolozone actually means. “Prolo” is short for proliferation, because the treatment causes the proliferation (growth, formation) of new ligament tissue in areas where it has become weak.

Ligaments are the structural “rubber bands” that hold bones to bones in joints – acting like the body’s shock absorbers. Ligaments can become weak or injured and may not heal back to their original strength or endurance. Ligaments will also not tighten on their own to their original length once injured. This is largely because the blood supply to ligaments is limited, and therefore healing is slow and not always complete. To further complicate this, ligaments also have many nerve endings, and therefore the person will feel pain at the areas where the ligaments are damaged or loose.

We can think of our joints as the hinge on a door. Until the hinge is fixed the door just isn’t going to open or close right and it’s the same exact story with our joints. If we are athletic or if we are just getting older there is some gradual and natural degeneration of the moving parts of the body due to ongoing recurrent mechanical stress, and failure of tissues to repair. This can come from lack of nutrients, lack of circulation, aging and inflammation. When this happens the ligaments, tendons, and cartilage become dehydrated and weaker. This results in laxity and more abnormal mechanical stress and shearing forces on the joint. Abnormal shearing forces and torsion cause more joint dysfunction. This leads to a progressive separation of the ligaments from the superficial covering on the bone called the periosteum. This pulling on the periosteum creates a space, which the body fills in with new bone. These new parts of bone are called osteophytes. They are the premier signs of degenerative arthritis in & around the joint. Osteophytes and joint laxity result in a reduced range of motion, which causes strain on surrounding muscles which then become either over or under worked leading to more dysfunction & pain.
Prolozone causes repair and tightening of the lax structures, partially torn connective tissue and ligaments. Prolozone halts the pain/inflammation cycle. This allows for better circulation, increased blood flow carrying nutrition, and hydration of the damaged tissues. This allows for a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in increased range of motion and decreased pain.

Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon hydrotherapy, commonly referred to as a colonic, is a safe and effective method of removing waste from the large intestine.

5 BENEFITS OF COLON HYDROTHERAPY

  1. Improves Digestion and Prevents Occasional Constipation

  2. Increases Energy and Concentration

  3. Jumpstarts Weight Loss

  4. Supports Overall Colon Health

  5. Encourages Whole Body Detox

FAQ ABOUT COLON HYDROPTHERAPY

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy, commonly referred to as a colonic, is a safe and effective method of removing waste from the large intestine. Triple filtered and temperature regulated water is slowly introduced into the colon via the rectum. The waste is softened and loosened with evacuation accomplished through natural peristalsis. It is a closed, sanitary system with releases made through the waste tubing. All tubing is single use and disposable. The process of slowly filling the colon with water and then releasing the waste is repeated several times during a session.

Does it hurt?

Colon hydrotherapy should not be painful. If you experience pain, you need to inform your therapist immediately. You may feel some pressure in the rectum upon insertion of the speculum. You may feel full as water is infused into your colon and may have an urgent sensation of needing to have a BM. This is normal. You may experience some abdominal cramping during the colonic but this is easily managed with a release and massage.

Is it Safe?

Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe, relaxing, and non-invasive procedure that can cleanse the entire large intestine. It’s just like giving the colon a bath with warm filtered water. Modern colon hydrotherapy equipment is manufactured through compliance with strict FDA guidelines that dictate rigorous accountability. The FDA-registered equipment features temperature controlled water mixing and back flow prevention valves, pressure and temperature sensors and a built-in chemical sanitizing unit and water purification unit. Disposable single-use tubing is used. Danbury Hospital in Danbury CT uses the same system we use at Cardea as an alternative colonoscopy prep.

What about “friendly bacteria” being lost?

Studies have shown that a number of good bacteria will be flushed out during a colonic but those that remain are not destroyed and will quickly repopulate the gut.

How many treatments do I need?

Every person is different and changes in our lives create different stresses, so there is no standard number of treatments that are recommended. It depends on your personal health objectives. Even though a person feels relief even after an initial session, it is necessary to take additional colonics to sufficiently cleanse the colon. We suggest you book a single treatment initially and discuss with your therapist during the consultation what their recommendations are. In our experience we have found that a course of 3 treatments over an initial 2-3 week timeframe produces the best results with regular maintenance thereafter.

How should I prepare for the colonic?

We recommend that you refrain from eating at least two hours prior to your appointment and ensure that you are well hydrated.

What happens during a colonic?

A session is a comfortable experience for many people. While lying on a massage table, a small amount of warm, filtered water will flow into the colon, gently stimulating the colon’s natural peristaltic action to release softened waste. The inflow of a small amount of water and the release of waste may be repeated several times. The removal of waste should encourage better colon function and elimination. When you feel the urge to eliminate, the unit goes to empty and with no effort, odor or noise, your body will eliminate any fecal matter that it is ready to release. Your initial visit includes a health history intake. A session lasts approximately 90 minutes and actual table time is 40-60 minutes. The room is immaculate, comfortable, and quiet and has an adjoining bathroom. Aromatherapy, soft lighting and music will help you relax.

How will I feel afterwards?

There may well be a feeling of lightness and people are often energized following a colonic. Rarely, one may feel sleepy after a colonic and want a nap. Both are normal reactions.

Will I have regular bowel movements after a colonic?

You may not have a bowel movement for a day or two following your colonic. It depends on how much you released during the colonic, your diet and what is called, transit time. This is the time it takes for food to leave your stomach and travel through your intestines. There then should be the resumption of a somewhat larger, easier to move stool. Rarely is diarrhea or loose bowels experienced. This may be due to the extra water introduced into the colon. If it should occur, it is usually of very short duration. *These statements have not been approved by the FDA. This is not intended to treat, diagnose, or prevent disease.

Hormone Thyroid Care

Thyroid Assessment and Management

This is Dr Jen’s favorite-as she has struggled w hypothyroid AND Hashimotos for almost 19 years.  She found herself in the conventional medicine circut, on synthetic meds, with significant adverse symptoms and not being “seen or heard”.  The fatigue and brain fog was life altering.  It was integrative medicine that finally transitioned her thyroid health and she has never felt better, healthy weight, energy and all labs in “optimal” range.

Learn More About Thyroid Assessment and Management

Yes labs can and should be OPTIMAL-symptoms should be non-existent or minimal.
When we address thyroid health, we should also take a comprehensive analysis into the HPA axis, while also assessing the micronutrients that support the thyroid gland, including iodine levels.
How are your thyroid antibodies, inflammatory markers, associated EBV, GI dysbiosis, intestinal permeability?  We truly cast the net wide, looking for the root cause of your thyroid disorder and managing appropriately.
Treatment often includes Natural dessicated thyroid hormone, glandulars when indicated, maximizing micronutrients, lowering antibodies and inflammation.  Thyroid sonograms or thermography are a necessity to assess for nodules as thyroid cancer is in the top 3 for women in the US.
We often RX Low dose naltrexone when indicated as the scientific support of this is quite compelling and can help w inflammation, lowering antibodies and managing fatigue/brain fog. Frequent assessment (usually every 3 mo, sometimes more frequent) is imperative and symptom management is our top priority.  Life is meant to be lived with VIGOR, you should not accept anything less!

Bio ID Hormones

Women’s hormones change from dawn till dusk and from monday–>wed to Fri.  Due to this, we support saliva hormone testing, collecting data from every day of your cycle, as sometimes bio identical replacement is only indicated on certain days of the month, not every-single-day. We also recommend scientifically supported herbal therapy, liver detox as well as nutritional advice and seed cycling.

Learn More About Bio ID Hormones

Our cycle is a healthy way to detox and encourage “fresh” blood production to replace blood loss through menses.
Our environment is toxic and we are exposed to many endocrine disruptors, and phytoestrogens; ultimately affecting hormone levels and perhaps encouraging estrogen dominance.  Our liver and detox pathways are essential to assess when appropriately managing hormones.
Men also struggle with “Man-o pause” or andropause.  We have seen levels very low in even 30 yr old men.  Having levels tested and understanding the upstream effects and managing these -are essential.  There are many supplements and lifestyle changes to manage low testosterone.  Rx therapy many n=be needed in certain cases.
We work with a certified compounding pharmacy to give you bioidentical vs synthetic replacement, and we reassess levels and get you feeling more energy, enhanced libido, less perimenopausal symptoms and healthy weight management.

Thermography

Thermography
