Many of my patients suffer from chronic pain and other chronic health conditions. They are looking for an alternative to pharmaceuticals or surgical intervention. They want to achieve better health through natural medicine that triggers the body's self-healing capabilities. I have found that acupuncture, herbology, functional medicine, prolotherapy, and ozone therapy produce the best results.
In addition to Kiiko Matsumoto style Japanese acupuncture and Jing Fang Classical Chinese Herbology, I practice functional medicine, which is a systems biology-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual's illness.In addition, I utilize ozone therapy and prolotherapy. Ozone is a highly reactive form of pure oxygen. In medicine, ozone is used to create a curative response in the body. There a various methods of administration, including prolozone injections for the joints and spine, ozone sauna, insufflation, major autohemotherapy, minor autohemotherapy, IV ozonated saline, etc. The method of administration is determined on a case by case basis. Prolotherapy (proliferative therapy) uses targeted injections to stimulate the body's immune system to heal ligaments, tendons and joints to obtain pain relief, increased mobility, and increased functionality of joints and the spine.
