Pain Relief and Osteoporosis Support with Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy:
Our clinic is one of the few in the region that has the physiotherapy equipment called Pulse Electromagnetic Field equipment (PEMF). This gentle process has been shown to help bones heal, to regrow bones of astronauts and women with osteoporosis. It also helps regrow cartilage in joints. Many people find relief after their first session; for others, it takes longer. Treatments range from 15-30 minutes, depending on how many areas require treatment. This therapy may normalize blood circulation, oxygen, and calcium in the body, thereby restoring normal function to joints and tissue.

Constitutional Hydrotherapy is by far a very effective therapy for stimulating the immune system and achieving total body detoxification. It has been used for years to detoxify heavy metal exposure, pesticide/herbicide toxicity, and the daily toxic buildup of improper diet and lifestyle. Dr. Carroll combined hot and cold contrast towel applications (the Father Kneipp water cure) with various electrical physical therapy stimulations to achieve a remarkable healing therapy. OG called this a "constitutional hydrotherapy" because it changed the very constitution of each individual cell. This means that each cell in your body is stimulated to dump waste products, to utilize nutrition more efficiently, and to work more effectively. You can rebuild your metabolism and regenerate your health with this amazing therapy.
Studies recently done at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine and the famous Windrose Clinic, in Spokane, WA, determined that the constitutional hydrotherapy will raise a low basal body temperature, moderate low or high blood sugar, and moderate high or low blood pressure. Remarkably, an increase in white blood cell count by 10,000 more cells on average in circulation is seen within 2 to 8 hours after only 1 hydrotherapy. This is a rapid way to boost your immune function and fight any infection - even the antibiotic resistant bacteria.
This simplistic therapy utilizing alternating hot and cold towel application to the chest and to the back is utilized for acute infections such as sinusitis, whooping cough, pneumonia as well as chronic conditions such as asthma, psoriasis, irritable bowel, Crohn's disease, or arthritis. Constitutional hydrotherapy is part of many of our autoimmune programs and fertility programs.

With so many diets out there, how are you to choose? There's Paleo, blood type diet, vegetarian, and more. There's not one diet for everyone. Naturopathic doctors have hundreds of hours of training in nutrition. Nutritional plans will be customized for your specific symptoms and nutritional deficiencies. We can also do a comprehensive nutrient panel.
Food allergy testing*:
Did you know that food allergies can be causing symptoms ranging from asthma to skin rashes to infertility? Even people without symptoms in the digestive tract can have food allergies. Some people report difficulty thinking or weight gain from offending foods. The first step to getting better is to avoid these foods. But that's only part of the answer. We have to support and nourish the gut so that further allergies don't occur. Homeopathy and specific nutrients are great for that. Come learn which foods to which your body is reacting with this simple test.
Gut Health Profile Testing*:
Many people have a sensitivity to gluten. Did you know that as of 2014 there is a genetic test that can be done right from a cheek swab? This test is recommended for relatives and children of those with Celiac disease to see if they are susceptible to becoming intolerant to gluten even if they have no symptoms yet. Now that's preventative medicine.
This program starts with a test* to measure the age of your cells my measuring an enzyme called telomerase. This protein helps the cell divide. The more times a cell can divide, the longer it lives. If the levels are low, we will supplement with a product that has shown to raise levels of this enzyme. Telomere science is becoming the 'next big thing'. More labs are studying this part of the DNA, in order to support its ability to keep replicating. The anti-aging program includes a telomerase test at the beginning, and also 6 months into Naturopathic care. It also includes customized recommendations specifically for your health concerns.
Naturopathic doctors are licensed in many states, and scope of practice varies in each state. Naturopathic doctors in PA do not perform IV therapies for nutrients or for chelation. IV chelation has side effects including gray hair, insomnia, gray eyebrows, and kidney pain. In this office, we can test for heavy metals and use SAFE and effective methods that work with your body. Follow-up testing will be performed in approximately 6 months.
