Integrative Medicine

The Defining Principles of Integrative Medicine are:

  1. The patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process.
  2. All factors that influence health, wellness and disease are taken into
    consideration, including: body, mind, spirit and community.
  3. Appropriate use of both conventional and alternative methods facilitates
    the body’s innate healing response.
  4. Effective interventions that are natural and less invasive should be used
    whenever possible.
  5. Integrative medicine neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts
    alternative therapies uncritically.
  6. Good medicine is based in good science. It is inquiry driven and open to
    new paradigms.
  7. Alongside the concept of treatment, the broader concepts of health
    promotion and the prevention of illness are paramount.
  8. Practitioners of integrative medicine should exemplify its principles and
    commit themselves to self exploration and self development.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, commonly referred to as HBOT, is a treatment modality that supplies your body, blood, and tissue with pure oxygen while you are inside of a pressurized chamber. By breathing oxygen while inside the hyperbaric chamber, you will enhance the ability of your white blood cells to destroy bacteria and viruses, reduce inflammation and swelling, and promote growth of new blood vessels in the oxygen depleted areas. This mechanism is responsible for promoting health by enhancing the body’s own ability to repair and regenerate.

HBOT has been used, dating back to the early 20th century, and has been shown to improve the quality of life for patients with various conditions.  The most common conditions that are effectively treated with hyperbaric oxygen include:

  • Anti-aging
  • Autoimmune Disorders                                                   
  • Arthritis
  • Brain Injury caused by Substance Abuse
  • Brain Injury from Chemotherapy “Chemo Brain”
  • Brain Injury from Radiation
  • Concussion
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hashimotos
  • Inflammatory Conditions
  • Lyme Disease
  • Mold Toxicity
  • Mitochondrial Disorders
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Post Concussion Syndrome
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Tinnitus

IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback

Various studies of the brain have shown people who tend to suffer from anxiety, post-traumatic stress, depression, and other neurological conditions have shown high levels of delta wave activity. The IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback system has been proven to reduce or eliminate high levels of delta wave activity. Brain scans done before and after treatment sessions have shown astounding results.

IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback briefly stimulates the brain at a micro-level, creating a temporary fluctuation in brainwaves. This allows the brain to reset or reorganize itself, thus releasing itself from its frozen or stuck patterns. This is analogous to re-booting a frozen computer.

IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback has been shown to be helpful for treatment of symptoms associated with the following problems:

Anxiety in all forms, including: 

  • panic attacks
  • generalized anxiety
  • PTSD
  • impulse control
  • anger

Trauma

  • Mild/Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Concussions from sports, blast injuries etc.

Cognitive Function

  • ADD/ADHD 
  • some learning disabilities
  • Dementia
  • Miscellaneous
    • Insomnia
    • Some aspects of autistic spectrum disorders
    • Addiction
    • Lyme Disease
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Chronic fatigue
    • Chronic pain
    • Headache/Migraine
