In an effort to contain the Covid19 spread please consider a virtual consultation with one of our doctors when possible as an alternative to coming to our clinic.
Boost Vitamin D3 levels: Boost Immunity
In addition to healthy lifestyle, avoiding transmission and frequent handwashing, we recommend taking supplemental high dose Vitamin D3 to maintain serum levels at a range > 70 ng/dL to boost immunity and reduce the risk of viral infection. Contact us about vitamin D supplementation by tablet and / or shots as well as rapidVitamin D3 serum level testing
High Dose Vitamin D3 50000 IU as Disaster Preparedness For Influenza
There are some protocols for disaster preparedness against Influenza and SARS ( an enveloped virus) which state a extreme high dose of Vitamin D3 of 50000 IU may help stave off infection. The novel coronavirus is also a enveloped virus. Take for 50000 IU for 1 - 3 days following exposure or onset of symptoms. Our clinic has a supply of 50000 IU available for registered patients.

Bovine Colostrum - Worlds Best Superfood to Boost Immunity.
Clin Appl Thromb Hemost. 2007 Apr;13(2):130-6.
Prevention of influenza episodes with colostrum compared with vaccination in healthy and high-risk cardiovascular subjects: the epidemiologic study in San Valentino.
The efficacy of a 2-month treatment with oral colostrum in the prevention of flu episodes compared with antiinfluenza vaccination was evaluated. Groups included healthy subjects without prophylaxis and those receiving both vaccination and colostrum. After 3 months of follow-up, the number of days with flu was 3 times higher in the non-colostrum subjects. The colostrum group had 13 episodes versus 14 in the colostrum + vaccination group, 41 in the group without prophylaxis, and 57 in nontreated subjects. Part 2 of the study had a similar protocol with 65 very high-risk cardiovascular subjects, all of whom had prophylaxis. The incidence of complications and hospital admission was higher in the group that received only a vaccination compared with the colostrum groups. Colostrum, both in healthy subjects and high-risk cardiovascular patients, is at least 3 times more effective than vaccination to prevent flu and is very cost-effective.

Functional Medicine 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.
As the graphic illustrates, a diagnosis can be the result of more than one cause. For example, depression can be caused by many different factors, including inflammation. Likewise, a cause such as inflammation may lead to a number of different diagnoses, including depression. The precise manifestation of each cause depends on the individual’s genes, environment, and lifestyle, and only treatments that address the right cause will have lasting benefit beyond symptom suppression.
If you have a medical condition which you would really like to reveal and understand the underlying cause then consider a functional medicine consultation. By applying the fundamentals of functional medicine our doctors can pursue treatments aimed at addressing the underlying cause of illness, mental health issues, aging, fertility and metabolism
Heavy Metals and Other Detoxification
Mercury Arsenic Glyphosphate Teargas
Heavy metal toxicity as well as other contaminants can be a major the underlying contributor of many diseases including heart disease, cancer, neurological diseases, diabetes and autoimmune diseases. It can also cause symptoms of fatigue, memory disturbance, skin rash, stubborn weight loss, thyroid dysfunction and pre-diabetes. Some genetic dispositions make one person more at risk than another due to impaired detoxification pathways. Using comprehensive testing for heavy metals and genetics together with nutraceuticals, IV therapy and infrared therapy the body can improve detoxification and clear these componds improving symptoms and disease risk
Evoke Neuroscience eVox® Assessment & Treatment
The eVox® System – Aiding Doctors in the Diagnosis of Cognitive Disorders
The eVox® System is a medical device that enables primary and specialty care physicians to assess brain function in-office and use the results to aid in making a clinical diagnosis.
eVox acquires biomarkers based on electroencephalography (EEG) and Event-related Potentials (ERP) that may aid doctors in:
identifying the root cause of memory loss
increasing the accuracy in diagnosing ADD/ADHD
identifying MCI and memory loss sooner
performing a differential diagnosis of depression vs. dementia
identifying subtle brain impairment early
The eVox® system is an FDA 510(k) cleared medical device that assesses brain function to aid in diagnosis. It collects 19-channel EEG and event-related potentials (ERP) data via a portable and automated 24-channel amplifier to offer objective, brain-based biomarkers that aid in diagnosis of cognitive disorders.
Hair Restoration with Regenera Activa
Regenera® Activa Hair Loss Treatment
“3 step 60 minute procedure, Results visible in 30 days”
Clinical studies show that hair loss is stopped at 4-6 weeks and existing hair follicles begin to regenerate new hair.
Regenera is a tool specifically developed and manufactured for clinical application of regenerative procedures using autologous micrografts (obtained from the same patient.)
In a single session, the patient is a donor and recipient of autologous micrografts which allows the recipient zone to benefit from the regenerative activity of the progenitor cells and the growth factors extracted from the donor site.
The technique is based on clinical studies demonstrating that there is a high concentration of the obtained cells in solid tissues. Through a calibrated mechanical process and a filtrate, the cells and other precursor elements are concentrated.
Regenera Activa® is suitable for treating Androgenetic causes for alopecia.
What happens during the treatment?
Regenera Activa® is a comfortable 3-step procedure which takes up to 60 minutes.
Step 1: Local anaesthesia is applied around the nape of the neck and with the use of a punch biopsy tool 3 skin samples are taken with a diameter of only 2.5mm each.
Step 2: The samples collected are then subjected to mechanical processing and filtration in a specialized device to isolate progenitor cells, stem cells and growth factors, all of which have regenerative abilities.
Step 3: The suspension prepared is then reintroduced to the area of the scalp which requires treatment using fine tiny needles. This initiates the repair process and stimulates blood vessel formation and regeneration of hair follicles.

Taking Care of Your Body
Osteopathy is natural form of physical treatment which aims to restore function in the body by treating the causes of pain and imbalance. To achieve this goal our Osteopath works with the position, mobility and quality of the tissues. The ability to detect minute modifications in the quality of the tissues is the assessment skill that allows the Osteopath to prioritize a patient's course of treatment. These tissue qualities include congestion, dehydration, scarring, stiffness, density, and loss of resilience, as well as motility, which is an infinitesimal movement inherent to all living tissues. It is this sensing of the quality of the tissue—in combination with the position, mobility, and vitality of the tissues which achieves an improvement in health, posture and mobility for men , women, teens, children and babies.

Optimise Your Health by Optimising Your Thyroid Function
It is thought that current conventional testing can overlook many people who could benefit from thyroid treatment both with supportive measures and / or thyroid hormone treatment. Autoimmune thyroid disorder is also increasing due to environmental exposures and deficiencies in minerals and elements the thyroid depends on, such as iodine and selenium, or hormonal disruptions, such as Insulin, Vitamin D3 deficiency or cortisol, or heavy metal toxicity. If the thyroid gland function is inadequate the gland may become enlarged as it struggles to improve function causing a mini-goitre which may be detectable on physical exam.
