Specialized Medical Treatment
[insert youtube video id 2mFooff_erQ]
Far too often in modern medicine, the emphasis is on treating the obvious problem.
Surface treatments may eliminate a condition for a time or keep an illness at bay, but the longevity of this solution is temporary. The goal in the treatment of every human being should be to care for the whole person, not just put a bandage on the problem that is manifesting itself at the moment. The goal is not to simply get rid of symptoms, but to determine the origin of an ailment and treat it at its core.
Types of Specialized Medical Treatment
Specialized medical treatments can vary depending on the practice you visit, but the common reasoning behind alternative medicine is to enhance your quality of life at any age. Traditional medical treatments may give you a temporary reprieve from the problem from which you are suffering, but the side effects can be just as difficult to weather, and a cure is not guaranteed. Specialized medicine, on the other hand, is designed to treat patients in less subversive ways to provide more effective, permanent results.
Here are just four types of specialized medical treatment offered at Longevity Health Institute:
Alternative Cancer Treatment
When you or someone you love is diagnosed with cancer, a feeling erupts that you are willing to try any method to make this devastating disease disappear. Alternative cancer treatments have grown in popularity not only because they are kinder to the body in their effects, but also because they have been able to successfully comfort and even help heal cancer patients.
In a healthy immune system, the cancer cells that live naturally in your body are easily kept in balance. Natural alternative cancer treatments, in conjunction with mainstream medical treatments, are intended to strengthen the immune system, condition the body to act hostilely toward cancer cells, and safely and gently kill any growing cancer cells.
Alternative cancer treatments are focused on restoring a body’s balance and rebuilding immunity. High-dose vitamin injections specifically target cancer cells and help a body work naturally to erase cancer cells without destroying healthy cells. Your doctor will work with you to determine the best approach to treating your particular type and stage of cancer.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
The medical treatment known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is intended to enhance a person’s natural healing process through the inhalation of 100 percent oxygen. The patient rests in a total-body hyperbaric chamber where the atmospheric pressure is controlled and oxygen is delivered at a rate greater than atmospheric pressure. The goal is to increase the availability of oxygen in the body.
As a regular part of alternative medicine, HBOT is believed to have the potential to resolve conditions such as:
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Decompression sickness (common to divers, also known as the bends)
- Air or gas embolisms
- Wounds that will not heal, such as a diabetic foot ulcer
- Tinnitus and sometimes hearing loss
- Gas gangrene or necrotizing soft tissue infections
- Burns and skin grafts
- Traumatic brain injury
- Radiation injuries
Through therapeutic recompression, the systemic gas bubbles that are causing a patient’s health crisis are physically reduced in size so that excess gas is dissolved and bubbles are eliminated. A customized treatment schedule will be determined for each patient depending on their condition, so that their HBOT sessions will be as beneficial as possible.
Gastric Issues / Digestive Disorders
Good health begins with good digestion. If your digestive system is unable to properly absorb nutrients and eliminate waste, then achieving optimal health will be nearly impossible. Western diets that are high in processed foods and low in natural fruits, vegetables, grains, and proteins are wreaking havoc on bodies. Many diseases of the colon and rectum can be reduced, eliminated, or completely prevented through a healthy lifestyle.
Treatment of functional gastrointestinal disorders will likely include an overhaul of your nutritional efforts through nutrition coaching. But alternative medical therapies may also be utilized, including acupuncture or herbal therapy.
Irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, gluten allergies, dyspepsia, ulcers, Crohn’s disease, hemorrhoids, reflux disease, food allergies, and other digestive problems are all gut diseases that could begin or be exacerbated by:
- Lack of exercise
- A low-fiber diet
- Changes in routine or travel
- Abusing laxatives
- Resisting the urge to have a bowel movement
- Overusing antacids
- Use of certain medications, such as antidepressants or iron pills
Gut diseases as treated in specialized medicine will likely include testing patients for food allergies and desensitization before moving ahead with treatment for digestive wellness. From nutritional supplementation to immune support, homeopathic remedies to probiotics, your individual assessment will indicate the kind of care you need.
Live Blood Analysis
A live blood analysis is intended to identify nutritional deficiencies. This testing serves as a reliable counterpart to other types of specialized medical treatment, particularly functional gastrointestinal disorders. Darkfield microscopy is used to observe live blood cells from the side rather than from underneath the material as with a traditional microscope. This dark background allows the light source to highlight the material for study and to inform a diagnosis in a new and detailed way.
Live blood analysis is sometimes referred to as a live cell analysis, Hema view, or nutritional blood analysis. Just a drop or two of blood from a patient’s finger prick, and your doctor can investigate your red and white blood cells in their shape, size, and ratios. The information provided by your blood cells tells your doctor just want kind of health issues really are going on with you, or confirms what the doctor already suspects.
The live blood analysis makes it possible for your doctor to develop the most effective health and wellness plan possible for your overall well-being. The blood results are detailed about whether not you have a diet that is high in fat or poor nutrition. Your levels of inflammation and immune system activity can be reviewed. The amount of stress in your life will appear in your blood analysis, as well as your frequency of using alcohol or cigarettes.
