Leg ulcers

How the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic Can Help with leg ulcers

If you’re looking for more information on healing leg ulcers, you’ve come to the right place. Leg ulcers are mostly diabetic ulcers that are difficult to treat. Diabetic ulcer infection can cause inflammation, redness, and itching of the skin. Often, the symptoms of a skin ulcer can be both painful and unpleasant.

There are some reasons why diabetes increases the likelihood of getting an ulcer. One of the key symptoms of diabetes is high blood glucose levels. Over time, high blood sugar can harm nerves and blood vessels. This reduces blood flow, especially to the hands, feet, and legs, making it difficult for wounds and cuts to heal. It also increases the chance of infection. What’s more, diabetes is linked to peripheral arterial disease, which reduces blood flow to the legs and feet.

Nerve damage also makes it difficult to feel pain or other symptoms of ulcers or infections. It can prevent the diabetic person from healing smaller wounds before they become ulcers.

Ulcers are dangerous because they can lead to severe infections or even gangrene when the tissue dies. In some cases, the only way doctors can treat an infection or gangrene is by amputating the affected area.

You may have tried the lot already to get rid of diabetic ulcers. Medical studies, articles, and our Biotherapy Clinic experience can help you realize even more holistic healing approaches for leg ulcers.

Acupuncture.

Acupuncture, as adjunctive therapy, affects:

  • Improving microcirculation in the lower extremities
  • Boosting immunity
  • Increasing nerve conduction
  • Pain relief

All of these actions help the wound heal and can be combined with any conventional medicine treatments. Many insurance companies cover acupuncture. We, at Biotherapy Clinic, use not only Chinese acupuncture but also Japanese scalp therapy, Russian earlobe acupuncture, Korean Su Jok hand-foot acupuncture, and much more. This combination enhances the healing actions of acupuncture. In many cases, we combine acupuncture with magnet therapy for better results.

Holistic nutritional supplementation program.

Leg ulcers are symptoms of a variety of medical conditions, including venous disease, clogged arteries in the leg, rheumatoid arthritis, or diabetes. At the Biotherapy Clinic, we focus not only on leg ulceration but also on an underlying health problem. In the case of diabetes, we are faced with various deficiencies in vital nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, essential fatty and amino acids, beneficial gut bacteria, etc. Without bricks, you cannot build a house, and your car cannot move without gasoline. By providing these vital nutrients, we can aid the healing process. It is known that everyone has their own situation and not all one size fits all.

In any case, some Biotherapy nutritional supplements are an important part of the healing of leg ulcers. Here are some of them.

Biotherapy practitioners may customize the holistic supplementation program that can aid your doctor in the treatment of ulcers.

Local treatment.

Topical treatment for wounds or leg ulcers should fight infections, reduce pain, and promote the healing proces
s. Biotherapy herbal balsam consists of many essential oils, which can do this job. It helps to clear the wound of infection and cause granulation and convergence of the wound edges.

Healing food consultation.

Leg ulcers are terrible things! Not only do they look disgusting and do undermine a person’s self-esteem, but they can also indicate a more serious medical condition. Scientific research has shown what can delay wound healing and how some nutrients can speed up the healing process.

Your body needs nutrients from the variability of healthy foods to heal wounds efficiently. What you eat is one of the critical factors in how quickly your body heals. Healthy, non-processed, organic, alkaline-formed foods with a low glycemic index are a key factor in treating non-healing ulcers.

Normalization of the acid-base (acid-alkaline) balance of tissues.

We will reveal to you a secret that many people do not know, even medical practitioners. Many people with leg ulcers have whole-body acidity. We are not talking about stomach acid but too much acidity in human tissues. Most diabetics have metabolic acidosis-whole body acidity.  It is known from physiological studies that there is a lack of oxygen in acidic tissues. No oxygen, no natural healing!

The leading causes of increased acidity of the whole body are acid-forming foods, artificial food made by humans, alcohol, certain medications, overgrowth of Candida-yeast after excessive use of antibiotics, chronic infections, environmental toxicants, and mineral deficiencies. Are you acidic? You don’t need complex tests. This can be assumed when checking the pH of your saliva and urine. If these numbers are below 6.6, you are acidic. Biotherapy pH Kit contains litmus paper and an instruction sheet.

Three things are needed to normalize the acid-alkaline balance of tissues naturally:

  1. Healing alkaline diet
  2. Taking minerals such as Biotherapy Cellular Magnesium-Potassium
  3. Drinking Karlovy Vary healing mineral water

The best way to find out is to see. Let’s take a look at what happened to a non-healing leg ulcer in a woman with long-term insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. This is an example of how a Biotherapy treatment program works.

December 4, 2020. Deep leg ulcer with signs of inflammation and infection.

December 18, 2020. Leg ulcer with less inflammation and smaller size.

January 22, 2021. Fully healed leg ulcer.

Treating leg ulcers is a process. It takes time, multidisciplinary alternative medicine approaches, patient involvement, insistent and persistent healing. The reward is the reduction or absence of symptoms without pain relievers, antibiotics and their side effects.

To obtain the benefits of the Biotherapy Clinic for healing leg ulcers, one can select the following options:

Liver Fibrosis and Cirrhosis

How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic Can Help People with Liver Fibrosis and Cirrhosis.

There is a good chance that if you clicked on this article, it is because you need this information on non-pharmaceutical treatments for liver fibrosis or early stage of liver cirrhosis.

Americans, as is the whole world, are now very familiar with a pandemic due to COVID-19. Pandemics are no joke, and neither are epidemics. Epidemics are diseases that are actively spreading in society. Liver disease is becoming close to being called an epidemic in the United States.

More than 90 million Americans have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) or non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). To give you an idea of how serious this is, 90 million is about the population of California, Texas, and Florida…combined.

Many of those with NAFLD or NASH do not show symptoms or feel pain, so they are not aware that they have a liver illness. When you get a paper cut and don’t feel it, you will survive—it’s not a big deal. However, when you have a liver illness and don’t know, it can be seriously detrimental to your health.

Since many people are asymptomatic, and there aren’t any real and safe medications to treat NAFLD or NASH, not much attention is given to them.

For example, we know quite a lot about diabetes because there are specific medications that exist. We see pharmaceutical ads on TV and the Internet; we have friends or family on diabetic medications. There are pumps, patches, pills, shots, and support groups.

According to the CDC, there are 34.2 million people in the US with diabetes. Liver disease affects almost 3 times more people in the US than diabetes, yet how much does the average person in the US know about NAFLD or NASH?

If anyone in the US has heard of chronic liver disease, most likely they have heard of cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is the final stage of liver disease. There is no longer enough healthy tissue in the liver for the liver to perform its essential functions; it can’t do the metabolic or detoxifying processes that keeps the body going. Liver cells are destroyed, and scar tissue ensues in the liver.

Right after heart disease and cancer, liver cirrhosis is the third most common cause of death among people aged 45 to 65. Currently, about 2% of the Western population has cirrhosis.

Of some comfort, there are stages of cirrhosis; mild cirrhosis is the beginning stage. Many people in this first stage do not show symptoms and can live quite well for years. If they do have liver function testing done, the results would probably come back normal. You might wonder how a liver test could come back normal if someone has cirrhosis. This is an excellent question to ask. The liver only needs to have 35% of its cells functioning to be able to do its main jobs. Therefore, a liver functioning test will come back normal if, in fact, the liver is functioning.

But the common tests do not indicate that the health of your liver is going in a negative direction. And once a person hits the final stage of cirrhosis, the outcome can be fatal, and conventional medicines treatments are limited.If your doctor mentions liver fibrosis or the beginning of liver cirrhosis, this is a serious alert. Do not take it lightly. The stages of cirrhosis develop over time. Liver cirrhosis is a chronic disease; therefore, much more can be done for a person who has mild cirrhosis than for a person in the last stage.

We are including a list of clinical symptoms of liver cirrhosis. If you have these symptoms and would like to discuss your health with an experienced professional, Biotherapy Clinic works with persons using complementary and alternative medicines. These have proven to help people, especially those in the beginning stages of cirrhosis.

  • A. Encephalopathy, a state of mental confusion and disorientation.
  • B. Jaundice, the yellow coloration of skin and eyes
  • C. “Foetor hepaticus,” sweet, fetid breath odor
  • D. Spider-like veins and spider-shaped capillaries on the skin.
  • E. Breast enlargement in men
  • F. Enlarged, solid, and nodular liver
  • G. Ascites-Fluid accumulation in abdomen
  • H. Shrunken testicles
  • I. Widening and curling of the fingers, broken nails
  • J. Bleeding gums
  • K. Glossy tongue
  • L. Varicose of esophageal veins, GI tract bleeding
  • M. Muscle atrophy, malnutrition, and weight loss
  • N. Spleen enlargement-splenomegaly
  • O. “Caput medusae” – enlarged blood vessels on the abdominal wall
  • P. Pubic hair loss in men
  • Q. Redness of the palms-palmar erythema
  • R. Excessive bruising and bleeding, skin itching and rushes
  • S. Legs swelling

There are effective ways to repair and regenerate the liver. Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic’s natural treatments can stop or even reverse fat accumulation in the liver and reduce the inflammation and scarring of liver tissue. The earlier treatment starts, the better, longer, and more profound the results will be.

We have comprehensive, customized, non-pharmaceutical healing programs for liver fibrosis and early stages of liver cirrhosis. Some of what we do is listed below:

The liver can suffer from dysbiosis.-Dysbiosis is the imbalance of healthy versus unhealthy bacteria in the gut. Beneficial intestinal bacteria made up of microbiota and microbiome help the body digest food, keep the immune system up and running, maintain hormonal balance, and control harmful bacteria, yeast, and parasites from taking over the small and large intestines.

Things that can decrease the amount of beneficial intestinal bacteria are antibiotics, medications like stomach-acid suppressants and steroids, processed foods, drinking alcohol, stress, age, and recreational drugs.

Thus, dysbiosis is a lack of beneficial bacteria and the loss of their health benefits. This imbalance leads to many diseases in the gastrointestinal tract and the entire body. People can develop leaky gut syndrome, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), internal toxicity, whole-body acidity, and malnutrition.

Biotherapy Clinic’s Whole-Body Cleansing anti-Candida program is a significant part of the healing of chronic liver disease. Since the gut is so porous, whatever unhealthy agent that enters the gut ends up in the liver. Biotoxins, chemicals, environmental toxins, heavy metals, and alcohol end up in the liver. If these contaminants stay in the liver, then chronic liver disease like cirrhosis is in progress.

Biotherapy’s Whole-Body Cleansing anti-Candida program is about removing toxins from the gut. This program puts the body back into balance. The liver is not being beaten up daily by more and more toxins entering it, but rather the liver has a chance to heal. It can start functioning better again. 

The restoration of friendly intestinal flora is a complicated process that cannot be achieved by quick fixes like eating yogurt or low-quality probiotics. Candida-yeast creates biofilm-covered colonies in the large intestine. This coating blocks good bacteria from getting in and develop colonies. This biofilm needs to be removed from the large intestine and flushed out of the body. This is a significant change for your body. Your body did not get this way overnight, nor will it be fixed overnight, but sticking with the program can bring positive, healthy change.

A part of Biotherapy Clinic’s Whole-Body Cleansing anti-Candida program is colon hydrotherapy. Clean and purified water gently cleanses the colon and literally flushes out unhealthy biofilm layers, Candida-yeast, toxins, parasites, and biotoxins.

Biotherapy’s natural healing program for chronic liver disorders has existed for years because it works. Our patients have seen positive changes in their health. They have improved digestion, less constipation, more regular bowel movements, a better mood, fewer colds and coughs, increased energy, more concentration, and brain clarity.

And medical tests confirm their results.

Our clients who have imaging and blood testing after participating in our Whole-Body Cleansing anti-Candida program show better overall health and better liver functioning.

We would not be doing our jobs if we didn’t mention whole-body acidity. This condition also greatly affects those with liver disease.

Whole-body acidity or metabolic acidosis is a modern-day illness, and, like dysbiosis, it deals with a fundamental imbalance in the body.

Whole-body acidity is when the acid-alkaline balance in the body is too acidic. The liver has a hard time working in an acidic environment because it is an alkaline gland. An excessively acidic environment can lead to many health issues like gallbladder and kidney stones, gout, and type 2 diabetes. Since this article is on the liver, we will focus on how whole-body acidity affects the liver, but we did want to mention how body acidity can affect a person in so many different ways.

Whole-body acidity makes the fluids in the body acidic. Bile and pancreatic juice, which are normally alkaline, become too acidic. This acidity irritates not only the pancreas but the liver as well, causing inflammation and scarring.

Like dysbiosis, whole-body acidity needs to be treated. Your liver can’t fight toxins and acidity every day if it is too sick. Natural, alternative medicinal treatments can be very helpful in getting an alkaline-acid balance back in the body. You do not need the complex tests to figure out you are acidic or not. The measure of saliva and urine pH by a litmus paper works as a window inside your body.  If your pH measurements are less than 6.6, you have whole-body acidity; therefore, it calls for the actions.

At Biotherapy Clinic, we have found that the following have successfully helped our patients with chronic liver disorders.

  • Using the healing power of food, Biotherapy has healing food consultations derived from European naturopathic clinics. You cannot heal your liver without healing foods. Eating alkaline-forming foods is vital. If your body needs to be less acidic, then eating foods that are alkaline helps get the body back to where it needs to be.
  • Biotherapy Cellular Magnesium-Potassium can neutralize acidity and help restore the minerals that your liver needs.
  • Drinking Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water. (See below.)
  • Chronic liver disease greatly affects digestion. It can be challenging to absorb fats, proteins, folic acid, and vitamins. Biotherapy B 12 Active is a methyl form of cobalamin and folic acid that is easily absorbed under the tongue.
  • Biotherapy’s Sunshine D Plus can help the body have enough vitamin D in the blood system to reduce inflammation and scarring of the liver.

There are various herbs, supplements, minerals, probiotics, enzymes, vitamins that have liver-protective properties. They are widely used all over the world, and many medical records support their use. Biotherapy supplements are manufactured in the United States with toxicity and quality control. Some of them are unique and were formulated by Peter Melamed, Ph.D. from the 80s. Some of the popular Biotherapy’s products are: Biotherapy Complete Probiotics, Biotherapy Damp Water Formula, Biotherapy Yin Formula, Biotherapy Selenium, Biotherapy Complete Enzymes, Biotherapy Berberine, Biotherapy Olive Leaf Extract, Biotherapy Ester C, Biotherapy MSM, and more.

If you have a chronic liver disease, our goal at Biotherapy is to help you by maintaining the stage that you are in. We do not want you to progress towards liver failure. If you are in the mild stage, we keep you in the mild stage. If you are more advanced with a chronic liver disease, we will deal with the complications that come with that stage and slow down the decay. If you are a candidate for a liver transplant and waiting for a liver, we can help you maintain until your liver transplant occurs.

At Biotherapy, we also have the following supplements and treatments that can help you and your liver. Any chronic illness like cirrhosis can cause daily stress and strain your nerves.

Biotherapy’s Yin Formula is a highly effective herbal remedy that can relieve stress, insomnia, nervous tension, anxiety, restlessness, and irritability. Many of the clinically tested ingredients in this herbal formula have been shown to relieve pain, cramps, and spasms, maintain mental balance, relax the body, and strengthen the nervous and immune systems. It also helps reduce cravings for sugar, tobacco, and alcohol.

Liver Regeneration Kit can naturally help people who are in the liver fibrosis or early stage of cirrhosis, and suffer from bloating and gas, memory loss, and chronic fatigue.

This Kit includes:

  • Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water
  • Biotherapy Damp Water Formula
  • Biotherapy B12 Active
  • Biotherapy Milk Thistle Max
  • Super Alpha Lipoic Acid
  • Zinc Caps

There are 2 things that have such an impact on people with chronic liver disease that we are going more into depth on them—Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water and acupuncture.

Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water (KVHMW) is made at home from the genuine thermal spring salt that is produced in the Czech Republic. And this healing water has been around for centuries. Over 200 years ago, European doctors regularly prescribed KVHMW to their patients. With hundreds of years to medically test, evaluate and study, KVHMW has been extensively researched.

What makes KVHMW unique and effective is its makeup. It has 40 electrolytes, trace elements, minerals, and bicarbonate—precisely what the body needs. KVHMW can reduce the toxicity level in the body by helping toxins exit the body. This healing water also improves the status of healthy bacteria in the intestines. KVHMW supports liver functioning, which means that the liver is getting help to heal.

Everything naturally in KVHMW helps promote the microcirculation of blood, lymph, and bile within the liver. KVHMW helps the entire body perform better. Digestion is improved; alkaline glands (liver and pancreas) are working better because they are more alkaline and less acidic; tissue and cell acidosis is lessened because they, too, are less acidic.

People with liver issues have seen improvement by using a KVHMW.

Another effective natural treatment is acupuncture. Every year, 14 million Americans are now using or trying acupuncture. Acupuncture has been used in Asia for centuries, and it helps with the gallbladder, the liver, the pancreas, headaches, back pain, digestive illnesses, insomnia, and stress.

You can find people across the world using acupuncture now because it works. Most people are familiar with the Chinese method, but the Korean SuJok, the Russian earlobe, and the Japanese scalp methods of acupuncture also exist. We have used all these methods for 40 years.

For some, just the mention of the word “needle” sends them running, but our clinic acupuncture session is typically soothing, restoring, tranquil, and energizing. Many people do not want their acupuncture session to end because they feel good while the needles are working. Clinical studies prove that acupuncture helps with indigestion, gas, bloating, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pains, and cramps.  We will focus on the liver, but if you wish to read more about how extensive acupuncture is, please visit our website, read our books, or contact us.

When certain acupuncture points are stimulated, the immune system can be given a boost. If you have chronic liver disease, your immune system needs a boost. Your digestion can be weakened, and acupuncture can help that as well. Chronic illness involves toxic emotions like anxiety or panic attacks, irritability, depression, and self-doubt.

Toxins, whether they are biochemical or emotional, are not helping a person with chronic liver disease. Acupuncture reduces anxiety and depression. After acupuncture, your sleep improves as well as your mood. You can move from negative self-talk to affirming self-talk that encourages you to keep working on your health.

At Biotherapy, we use all the tools and experience we have to help our patients, and we customize a treatment plan for each patient. If a patient responds well to supplements and acupuncture, we aid them with that. If a patient needs hypnosis and colon hydrotherapy, we aid them with those healing options. We will help you and your liver.

If you are concerned about your liver and want help, please feel free to contact us at Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic in the San Francisco Bay Area. We look forward to working with you. We prepare and open during COVID-19.

You can call us at (415) 409-3939 or (650) 365-3640 to schedule an in-person appointment. Feel free also to book a telephone consultation using our website: https://www.biotherapy-clinic.com/phone-consultations.html

Stroke recovery

How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help with stroke recovery

Let’s start with the following story from Peter Melamed, Lic.Ac, RN, Ph.D., MD (USSR)

“After 15 years in the intensive care unit, I have treated many of my patients with paralysis, including acute stroke. Even in this situation 40 years ago, I used electroacupuncture and saw a relatively rapid improvement in neurological symptoms. After emigrating to the United States and passing all the exams, I started running an Alternative Biotherapy Clinic in San Francisco.

15 years ago, my cousin, about 50 years old, suffering from low thyroid and high blood pressure, had an acute ischemic stroke. When I visited her at Seton Medical Center, I was shocked. The left side of her body was completely paralyzed. She was discharged  a few weeks later with left arm and leg paralysis. We decided to help her despite her serious situation. After six months, she went to work, drove, and could do her usual household chores. Was it a miracle? No, it was hard work. Several times a week, we did electroacupuncture with electrical muscle stimulation (myostimulation), massage, she also received physical therapy at home. She was taking our nutritional supplements that promote nerve and muscle regeneration.”

Let’s explain why there can be a good outcome after ischemic stroke.

(The term “ischemia” means insufficient blood flow to a body part.)

This type of stroke usually occurs when the middle cerebral artery (MCA) suddenly has spasms or is blocked by blood clots. Consequently, a part of the brain without oxygen is destroyed and ceases to function. This leads to paralysis of the motor zone, which sends constant impulses to the muscles to keep them in working order. Like everything in our body, the brain begins to repair itself and recover from damage. Fortunately, many brain functions overlap, but this takes time, several months. During this time, the muscles of a person without nerve impulses freeze and lose contraction. So, if you saw a person after a stroke with a twisted arm and a paralyzed leg, then this has already happened.

If we maintain the mobility of the muscles by the time, they can receive brain signals.  What can happen? You’re right—faster and more complete recovery. The muscle revives when it contracts. How to make paralyzed muscles contract if they do not receive natural impulses.

It turns out there is a way to make the muscles contract. This is an electrical impulse directed at the particular area of the paralyzed muscle. The medical term for these techniques is called myostimulation.

At the Biotherapy Clinic, we use a particular rehabilitation program after ischemic stroke.*  The best result is achieved in people aged 50-70. This rehabilitation program includes:

  • Healing diet
  • Electro acupuncture
  • Electro myostimulation
  • Herbal remedies
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Healing exercises
  • Restoration of beneficial intestinal bacteria
  • Whole-body vibration
  • Relaxation, medical hypnosis

Some of these methods need decryption.

Acupuncture. In recent decades, there have been several clinical studies, mainly from Asia, that have shown the beneficial effects of acupuncture in combination with traditional treatment of patients after hemiplegic stroke (one-sided paralysis). This includes improving motor function, sensory ability, static balance, joint function, bowel and bladder control, mood stabilization, and more. The patients’ ability to eat, walk, dress, climb stairs, bathe, and restore normal functioning have definitely improved. Excellent results are often achieved if treatment is started three weeks after the stroke. After this period, results are often achieved more slowly. Many researchers in this field have come to the conclusion, in particular, about the effectiveness of electroacupuncture.

Electromyostimulation. Paralysis or the inability of a muscle to move is one of the most common disabilities resulting from stroke. There are broken nervous conductivity and muscles atrophy-muscles waste away. The brain controls the movement of the body by sending electrical signals through the nerves to the muscles. These signals tell the muscles to contract and cause movement. If the brain or nerves are damaged, the electrical signals do not reach the muscles, so the muscles do not contract when we want them to. When a muscle doesn’t contract at all, when we want it, we call it paralysis. When muscles contract on their own when we don’t want to, we call it muscle spasm or spasticity. Paralysis and spasticity are caused by the loss of electrical signals that tell the muscles when to contract. We can replace these lost nerve signals with electrical stimulation. It is called electromyostimulation.  In the Biotherapy Clinic, we use a special device that can simultaneously perform electroacupuncture and electromyostimulation.

stroke

Electrical impulses activate intact nerves, which then cause the muscles to contract. Because electrical stimulation can cause muscles to contract when we want to, it can help people with paralysis use their muscles for movement again.

The benefits of Biotherapy treatment include:

  • Maintain the healthy function of paralyzed muscles until the activity of the brain motor centers is restored.
  • Prevention of muscle wasting.
  • Soothing muscle spasms
  • Increased local microcirculation
  • Keeping range of motion

Is it painful? The best way to find out is to try it. We usually give our patients devices to regulate their impulses, so they are not afraid of overstimulation. Therefore, they can do an excellent job.

Restoration of beneficial intestinal bacteria. At the very beginning of the 20th century, Eli Mechnikov, a Nobel laureate and pioneer in immunology, proposed that bacteria in the colon are responsible for many diseases, including neurodegenerative diseases associated with aging. Professor Mechnikov believed that some bacteria are bad and others are good, and that life expectancy can be increased by using beneficial bacteria. Aging could be delayed by consuming good bacteria (now known as probiotics), daily exercise, mental stimulation, and avoiding alcohol. His ideas have now come full circle with the recent discoveries that gut bacteria and gut health have severe implications for diseases affecting the entire body. Recent literature has shown the interaction of bacteria in the gut and host health, emphasizing recovery from stroke.

At the moment, it is known that beneficial intestinal bacteria (microbiota) are responsible for proper digestion, immunity, metabolism, hormonal balance and control the growth of opportunistic and harmful bacteria, Candida yeast, and parasites. A diet with processed foods, taking antibiotics, and other medications such as stomach acid suppressants, steroids, BCPs, alcohol consumption, stress, age will reduce beneficial bacteria. It has a medical term – dysbiosis.

Interesting article “Examining the Role of the Microbiota-Gut-Brain Axis in Stroke” was published in medical magazine Strokein August of 2019. The authors believed that “the gut microbiota is directly linked to a number of conditions that are themselves risk factors for stroke. This list includes hypertension, diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, aging, vascular dysfunction, and obesity.” On the other hand, a growing body of evidence demonstrates that stroke negatively affects the gut microbiota, causing dysbiosis.

Restoration of beneficial intestinal bacteria is a complex process that cannot be reach only by drinking yogurt and taking low-quality of probiotics. The Biotherapy Anti Candida Whole Body Cleansing program may help. Numerous of our clients stated improved digestion, constipation, and mood, fewer colds, increased energy, and more. In keeping with the new perspective on the development and progression of stroke and post-stroke, it would be very beneficial to focus on friendly gut bacteria.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is vital to have adequate immunity. Given that 70% of immunity cells rely on good gut bacteria, restoring good gut bacteria and reducing Candida-yeast makes sense. This is very important for stroke survivors because they usually suffer from dysbiosis when Candida-yeast and harmful bacteria take over the digestive tract.

Nutritional supplements. In Biotherapy Clinic, we use variety of nutritional supplements, which have a solid scientific backup of using in the neurological disorders.

Biotherapy Cellular Magnesium-Potassium is a combination of the magnesium and potassium salts of organic acids, which are naturally exist in the human organism. They transport these vital minerals exactly where they supposed to be, inside the cells.

Our bodies need magnesium and potassium for proper fluid composition, blood, bone formation, digestion of food, maintaining healthy nerve function, and regulating muscle tone, including the cardiovascular system. Every second of every day, our bodies depend on magnesium and potassium to generate billions of tiny electrical impulses throughout the nervous system. Our hearts would stop, our muscles would freeze, our brains would shut down, and we would not get energy from our food if these minerals were not available in the right amount and form.

Biotherapy Sunshine D Plus. A large body of evidence suggests that vitamin D deficiency could be linked to many chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease and cancer. The deficiency of vitamin D in the U.S. is common, especially among African Americans and Hispanics. The overall prevalence rate of vitamin D deficiency was 41.6% that was defined as a serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations ≤20 ng/mL. Published in 2019 in medical magazine Stroke article “Vitamin D Status and Risk of Stroke” suggested that “severe vitamin D deficiency was associated with incident stroke.”

Vitamin B12 deficiency is one of the little-known risk factors for stroke. It turns out that a lack of vitamin B12 can contribute to stroke in people of all ages. Preventing vitamin B12 deficiency has also been shown to reduce the risk of stroke effectively. As we age, we cannot fully absorb vitamin B 12 from food. To make matters worse, the use of drugs that reduce the amount of stomach acid completely stops the digestion of this vital vitamin. Not many people realize that vitamin B 12 and folic acid work together, so too much folate can cause this vitamin to be deficient. They need to be taken together.

Biotherapy B 12 Active is the most beneficial methyl form of vitamin B 12 and folic acid. Biotherapy B 12 Active can reduce pain and inflammation, improve mood, memory, and energy, and promote stroke recovery. The active ingredients of Biotherapy B 12 are readily absorbed from the mouth.

There is another herbal supplement that is currently approved for use as a medication in 47 countries. It Is Vinpocetine that has been used to maintain and improve brain health and cognition function since the 70s with different names (Сavinton, Vincapan.) The evidence for its use is most convincing in the treatment of chronic cerebral ischemia. However, there is growing evidence that it may be useful in the treatment or prevention of acute ischemic strokes, post-stroke, and various forms of dementia. Vinpocetine affects the brain’s blood vessels, blood flow in the brain, and the brain cells themselves. Thus, it may have implications for improving the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the brain and possibly preventing damage when nutrient and oxygen delivery is impaired. Some research suggests that vinpocetine may also help avoid neurotoxic effects associated with Alzheimer’s. It is also helpful for mild depression that usually accompanies a post-stroke.

Post-stroke depression (PSD). There is no question that a relatively healthy person, after brain damage and suddenly loss motility, thus work, money, self-care, and has asocial isolation, low quality of life has huge psychological stress. If we consider that there is no quick fix and long-term physical disability, no wonder that many post-stroke survivors have mood problems such as anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, etc.

Poststroke depression (PSD) is common, affecting approximately one-third of stroke survivors at any one time after stroke. Individuals with PSD are at a higher risk for suboptimal recovery, recurrent stroke, low quality of life, and higher mortality after stroke.

In Biotherapy Clinic, we use our unique, non-drug approach to help those persons. It is vital to speed the recovery, involve the patients in self-healing, prevent the negative outcome and mortality. Many of these non-medication methods can aid in brain chemistry and improve the balance of the brain neurotransmitters’, such as serotonin, dopamine, GABA, melatonin, etc. They also decrease inflammation, promote brain, nervous, and muscle recovery. Some of them have widely used all over the globe. We do not believe in panacea or quick fix forever. Biotherapy post-stroke depression healing program customizes the various methods, which can be combined with any medical treatments. Some of these methods are:

  • Healing diet
  • Acupuncture
  • Ear lode and scalp acupuncture
  • Herbs and nutrition supplements
  • Magnet therapy
  • Vibration platform
  • Relaxation, medical hypnosis
  • Restoration of beneficial intestinal bacteria

Whole-body vibration. Have you ever heard of how vibrating platform exercises can be beneficial in stroke rehabilitation? Many scientific studies from Japan, Hungary, Australia support this idea. Some of the most common physical problems following a stroke include difficulties with movement and balance caused by muscle weakness or paralysis, pain, discomfort, or fatigue. Since routine rehabilitation exercises can be challenging for those who have just had a stroke, it is recommended that alternative treatments, such as whole-body vibration, be considered to speed up physical recovery and relieve some of the symptoms.

Exercise on a vibration platform is a low-impact activity that does not require too much effort from the patient. Vibration therapy can increase voluntary muscle strength and restore balance and daily activity in stroke survivors. This is a very safe type of therapy and can be used while sitting or standing. At the Biotherapy Clinic, we use a combination of scalp acupuncture and whole-body vibration to achieve even better results.

The Biotherapy Clinic has many scientific and clinically proven methods of helping people who have had a stroke, regardless of the time it came. This can significantly improve the quality of life. We can help.

To take advantage of the personalized after-stroke patient program at the Biotherapy Clinic, you can choose from the following options:

  1. Telephone consultation (415) 409-3939or (650) 365-3640

How Biotherapy Clinic can help women with hair loss and hair thinning

Women’s hair is an indicator of not only beauty but also health. Having discovered thinning hair, you should not immediately resort to using special cosmetics, but rather try to find the cause of this problem.

We usually lose about 100 hairs a day. It is often impossible to quantify this amount, and you realize that you are losing too much of them when you notice a clogged drain in the bathroom or tufts of hair falling out on the comb and thinning of hair on the head.

Hair loss reasons? A lot of them. Treating symptoms without focusing on the root of the problem will not give long-term results. Let’s take a look at some of the more common causes of hairlessness.

Heredity. “My mom had hair problems too,” so did I. Genetic makes sense, but we are developing the idea of “heredity of life-style.” This means that generation after generation, women lived in the same toxic environment, kept the same dietary habits, smoked, took tons of antibiotics, used the same hair color, etc.

This may be due to certain medications. For instance:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Antihypertensive drugs
  • Antidepressants
  • Medications for arthritis, gout, and heart problems
  • Antibiotics
  • Steroids
  • Birth Control Pills
  • Antithyroid drugs and many more

Hormonal imbalance happens during pregnancy, in the postpartum period and breastfeeding, when using hormonal contraceptives, or with menopause.

Low thyroid, Hashimoto disease.

High testosterone such as dihydrotestosterone.

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Perimenopause

Insulin resistance.

  • Prediabetes
  • Diabetes
  • Weight issue
  • Belly fat

Severe physical or emotional stress. These can be conflicts at home or work, challenging studies, breakup or divorce, death of relatives or friends, war, and much more.

Deficiencies in essential nutrients.

  • Crash diets
  • Anorexia, bulimia
  • Heavy periods, a strict vegan diet (iron deficiency)
  • Diabetes
  • Bariatric surgery, fast weight loss
  • Low stomach acid (surgery, acid suppressants, age)
  • Low amount of pancreatic digestive enzymes and poor quality of bile

Dysbiosis.

  • Candida-yeast overgrowth
  • SIBO-small intestine bacterial overgrowth

Poor hair care. Aggressive treatments can contribute to bald headedness.

  • “Tight” hairstyles that exert intense pressure on the hair follicles: high tails, tight braids, bunches.
  • Coloring, bleaching, curling, daily curling irons, hot dryers, and hard combs that “tear” the hair.

Countless diseases are associated with hairlessness. The bottom line is that hair loss is often a sign of a health condition. On average, hair grows about 1/2 inch per month. Thus, there is no direct way to speed up hair growth overnight, but there are steps you can take to keep your hair healthy and long. What needs to be done?

At the Biotherapy Clinic, we have many years of medical experience in helping women with hair loss and thinning. We can check for possible causes and offer a non-pharmaceutical approach specifically for your needs. Some of them are unique and cannot be found anywhere.

  • Healing alkaline-forming diet
  • Drinking Karlovy Vary healing mineral water
  • Acupuncture, scalp therapy
  • Neck vertebrae alignment and massage
  • Cupping
  • Magnet therapy
  • Herbal balsam
  • High-quality nutrition supplements
  • Herbal remedies
  • Restoration of beneficial intestinal bacteria
  • Anti-Candida program
  • Hypnosis, deep relaxation, and more

It makes sense to dwell on some methods. All human organs, including the scalp and hair follicles, need normal microcirculation, the correct amount of protein, keratin, minerals, and vitamins, as well as proper nervous and hormonal regulation. Not many people realize that healthy digestion is essential for healthy hair. Thousands of years ago, Chinese doctors combined the colon, skin, and hair into one system. Nowadays, a large body of medical research is supporting this idea as the gut-skin axis. It turns out that beneficial gut bacteria (microbiome) play an important role in skin and hair health. Dysbiosis is a condition where beneficial bacteria are killed by antibiotics, and opportunistic infections such as harmful bacteria, Candida-yeast, and parasites invade the gastrointestinal tract. They eat our food, causing deficiencies in vital nutrients. On the other hand, they produce many toxic substances that lead to internal poisoning.

The Biotherapy European Anti-Candida Whole-Body Cleansing Program helps women to restore their internal ecology and thus restore health and beauty. If you want to have good hair, making the necessary diet and lifestyle changes will help not only your hair but your entire body.

bold spot bold spotOur head receives blood from two carotid arteries and two arteries of the cervical vertebrae. Aligning the cervical vertebrae and massage can help improve blood circulation in the head and scalp. It can provide many benefits for improving mood, blood pressure, sleep, vision, and hair growth.

We use our unique herbal balm for the local treatment of skin and hair problems. It is a complex of essential oils that may have antimicrobial and antifungal, and rejuvenation properties. Keep in mind that Candida-yeast can form colonies on the scalp, resulting in scaly, dry, and flaky skin. For example, dermatologists often use antifungal drugs for hair loss.

Biotherapy acupuncture practitioners have 60 years of combining of practicing acupuncture. We successfully use different acupuncture styles such as Japanese scalp therapy, Russian ear-lobe, Korean Su-Jok (hand/foot), and traditional Chinese acupuncture. For the treatment of scalp problems, we implement ancient “dragon tail acupuncture” that improves microcirculation. It means more blood; more nutrients go in this area.

Most of the factors that control hair growth are out of our day-to-day control. The best step you can take is to prevent hairlessness and thinning is to manage your stress. Everyday stress, especially stress hormones, are well-known factors of bald-headedness. In Biotherapy Clinic, we use various methods to reduce stress, such as nutritional supplements, herbs (Biotherapy Yin Formula), acupuncture, and deep relaxation. We offer a custom CD or MP3 for self-hypnosis to use in privacy in your home.

Nutritional support is also vital. Our nutritional supplementation program can give essential substances for hair growth. Without bricks, we cannot build the house, so our hair will not grow without some vitamins, minerals, microelements, enzymes, and phytonutrients. The nutritional supplements help restore the intestinal flora, diminishing Candida-yeast in the body, promoting hormonal balance, reducing stress, etc. The body cannot heal without the necessary ingredients for growth, recovery, and repair. The Biotherapy Clinic has many scientific and clinically proven nutritional supplements and herbs to help women with beauty and health. This can significantly improve the quality of life. We can help.

Parkinson’s Disease

How the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic Can Help with Parkinson’s Disease

 Parkinson’s disease starts in your gut.

If you think that Parkinson’s is just a neurological disease, you are wrong. Patients with Parkinson’s disease can manifest in different ways. Some people have tremors, while others have stiffness in the limbs, head, and facial muscles. While others have difficulty swallowing or choking or have trouble speaking. Some people have problems with balance. It is as if we are talking about several different disorders rather than one disease.

And it seems that even traditional medicine concludes that Parkinson’s disease also has no unambiguous definition. The new Danish study is turning what we know about the brain and Parkinson’s disease upside down. A new study has shown that Parkinson’s disease is progressive and incurable, but this could be because they are actually two diseases, and the one-size-fits-all approach does not work. The disease is traditionally considered a brain disorder, but it can equally occur in the intestines. One of the latest discoveries shows that Parkinson’s disease can start in both the gut and the brain. Our intestines are like our “second brain.” In our gut-brain axis, there are over hundreds of millions of nerve cells lining our gastrointestinal tract from top to bottom, which control digestion, immunity, hormones, and even our mood. When Parkinson’s disease starts in our brain, it is usually associated with sleep disturbance. Dopamine absorption is also reduced in our brains. Ultimately, this is accompanied by damage to other nervous systems such as the heart and intestines. Danish researchers have discovered two types of Parkinson’s disease. They call the first type of disease, “brain-first.” Another kind of disease they call “body-first” Parkinson’s disease. In the body-first case, damage begins in the intestinal wall’s neurons before any damage manifests itself in our brain. The disease then spreads to our heart, circulatory system, and ultimately to the brain. This is supported by the observation of gastrointestinal symptoms, including constipation, increased salivation, and problems with swallowing, as well as changes in intestinal bacteria and increased intestinal permeability-leaky gut syndrome. These symptoms are found in patients several years before the onset of classic Parkinson’s symptoms.

It is now well known that the microbiological picture of patients with Parkinson’s disease differs from that of healthy patients. This means that in Parkinson’s disease, the normal gut bacteria are altered by some bacteria (firms, clostridia). At the same time, there are no other beneficial strains.

The theory is that leaky gut, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), and dysbiosis (a small number of beneficial gut bacteria) trigger an immune response. This process activates the release of several inflammatory messengers. These precursors of inflammation enter our brains and cause damage. The vagus nerve is the longest and most complex of the cranial nerves and is believed to be a highway for disease progression. This “body-first” Parkinson’s disease raises the question of whether influencing our gut bacteria can prevent, slow down, or even reverse Parkinson’s disease. Knowing this can open up new avenues for treatment, for example, by restoring beneficial bacteria in the gut.

Studies have shown that constipation often begins before movement symptoms appear. In one study, researchers found that having a bowel movement less frequently than once a day indicated a four times higher risk of developing Parkinson’s disease. Constipation is not an ideal environment for beneficial bacteria to survive.

In a Biotherapy clinic, we can help restore the beneficial bacteria in the gut better than anyone esle. Forget yogurt or take or low-quality probiotics. This may help their manufacturers, but not you. The situation is much more complicated than advice from the Internet. Ask any gardener looking to grow a beautiful garden how to do it? A true professional will not plant roses in muddy soil full of insects, weeds, debris, and harmful chemicals. This is pointless work.

To grow an abundance of beneficial bacteria in our garden, we need:

  • Deplete and kill Candida and other harmful invaders with the right diet, herbs, and supplements.
  • Reduce and remove harmful germs, yeasts, and parasites with colon hydrotherapy, herbs, and nutritional supplements.
  • Get rid of heavy metals, mycotoxins (yeast toxins), and waste buildup with colon hydrotherapy, herbs, drinking Karlovy Vary healing mineral water, nutritional supplements, abdominal massage, acupuncture, normalizing colon regularity to avoid constipation.
  • Replenish beneficial bacteria with a healthy diet, Karlovy Vary healing mineral water, high-quality probiotics that can colonize the large intestine.
  • Feed healthy bacteria with a healthy diet and prebiotics.
  • Restore proper digestion, replenish missing nutrients to create a healthy environment for beneficial gut bacteria to thrive.
  • Strength the immune system, a natural defense mechanism against harmful microorganisms, relieve stress.

Can we do it with yogurt? It is highly doubtful.

Biotherapy Anti Candida Whole Body Cleansing program can help in all of the above aspects. Many of our clients report improved digestion, elimination and mood, fewer colds, increased energy, and more. In keeping with the new perspective on the development and progression of Parkinson’s disease, it would be very beneficial to focus on friendly gut bacteria, especially at the onset of the disease.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, having adequate immunity is vital. Considering that 70% of immunity relies on beneficial intestinal bacteria, restoring good gut bacteria and reducing Candida-yeast does make sense. It is crucial for people with Parkinson’s because they usually suffer from dysbiosis when Candida-yeast and other harmful bacteria invade the digestive tract.

Non-drug approaches to Parkinson’s Disease

An increasing number of people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) are interested in improving both their motor and non-motor symptoms with non-drug therapies. Over the past decades, many scientific studies have confirmed the positive effects of acupuncture on gait, tremors, mood, sleep, depression, fatigue, and pain in people with PD. A recent randomized controlled trial of electroacupuncture in Parkinson’s disease demonstrated improved gait in those receiving acupuncture, as measured by body-worn sensors.

Acupuncture is known to normalize brain chemistry, leading to the release of endorphins or brain chemicals that can induce well-being feelings. Other theories state that acupuncture can improve microcirculation in the brain, reduce inflammation in the body, or increase nerve regeneration.

85% of patients reported subjective improvement in individual symptoms, including tremors, walking, handwriting, sluggishness, pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety. There were no side effects. Acupuncture is safe and well-tolerated by patients with PD.

At the Biotherapy Clinic, we have been using various acupuncture treatments for many neurological diseases for a long time. In addition to traditional Chinese medicine, we apply Japanese scalp therapy, Russian earlobe, Korean Su-Jok, electropuncture, and much more to our patients.

Due to rigidity, many patients with Parkinson’s disease suffer from the displacement of the upper cervical vertebrae. We use a very gentle manual technique and massage to restore proper neck movement, which can improve brain microcirculation.

We also use a healing method for therapeutic and rehabilitation purposes, which is not often used in other offices. Several medical studies have found a therapeutic effect of whole-body vibration on mobility and balance in Parkinson’s disease. For people who are less likely to engage in more intense workouts, the whole-body vibration platform has been shown to improve gait, balance and reduce stiffness. It also contributes to general relaxation and overall comfort. According to the medical literature, it is also beneficial for patients with various medical conditions such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and stroke.

All of the non-drug methods mentioned above can be safely combined with traditional pharmaceutical treatments or use alone.

In addition to restoring beneficial gut flora, detoxifying heavy metals, and acupuncture, nutrition should also be considered. We do not yet know the exact reasons for the development of PD. One of these can be whole-body acidity that is called metabolic acidosis. This hypothesis was published in the proceedings of the 16th International Congress on Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders. Scientists mention that metabolic syndrome can be a risk factor for Parkinson’s disease, as well as preventive measures that reduce the incidence of Parkinson’s disease by regulating oxidative stress.

Whole-body acidity occurs in many disorders and diseases, such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes, gout, kidney stones, gallstones, chronic pancreatitis, and various digestive problems. It is so common these days that some researchers call metabolic acidosis the disease of civilization. A healthy alkaline diet, drinking Karlovy Vary healing mineral water, and taking Biotherapy Cellular Magnesium-Potassium can normalize acid-base balance with many beneficial effects, including PD. By the way, magnesium is an anti-stress, anti-tremor mineral and can protect the brain. Low levels of this mineral have been reported in the motor areas of the brain of patients with Parkinson’s disease. For instance, it is common for patients with Parkinson’s disease to have low vitamin D levels.

Nutritional support is also vital. The body cannot heal without the necessary ingredients for growth, recovery, and repair. The Biotherapy Clinic has many scientific and clinically proven nutritional supplements and herbs to help people with Parkinson’s disease. This can significantly improve the quality of life. We can help.

UTI after Intimacy

Urinary Tract Infections After Physical Intimacy

And yet, despite the growing interest in women’s intimate health, women’s discussions are still hidden under the covers. Of course, libido, menopause, and UTI (Urinary Track Infections) symptoms are not a common conversation at the dinner table, especially when both sexes are present. One of the tabooest topics is the urinal tract infection after physical intimacy. Doctors have known the condition that is named “honeymoon cystitis” for a long time.

Symptoms are caused by active physical intimacy. They are the same as for UTIs caused by something other than sleeping with a husband or boyfriend. These symptoms include a painful burning sensation when urinating, as well as a frequent urge to use the toilet. Other symptoms may include cloudy urine, bloody urine, urine with a strong odor, and pelvic pain.

Honeymoon cystitis can occur with a new partner or after a long period of inactivity. During physical intimacy, E. coli bacteria, which usually live on the skin around the anus, can be passed into the urethra.

After contact, bacteria can quickly enter the urinary system and cause infection. Because the female urethra is short (about 2 ½ inches), women are more susceptible to these infections than men. Women contract UTIs up to 30 times more often than men. By the way, do not envy men. Even though their urethra is much longer, there is a prostate gland between the opening and the urinal bladder. The prostate catches germs that often leads to prostatitis.

Several factors can increase the chances of postcoital infection.

  • Chronic urinary tract infections
  • Certain types of contraception, such as diaphragms or spermicides
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic yeast infections after taking antibiotics
  • Low immunity due to deficiencies in essential nutrients
  • Weak urine flow to remove bacteria from the bladder and more

Antibiotics are the usual treatment for UTIs. Some women with recurrent bladder infections take many courses of antibiotics a year. Others may be given a prescription for a small daily dose of antibiotics taken over several months to “prevent” future infections. But antibiotics aren’t just killing E. coli bacteria in the urethra, bladder, and kidneys. They also destroy beneficial gut bacteria, which serve as a vital, neglected internal organ that performs many tasks and functions. Good gut bacteria can:

  • Promote digestion
  • Support immunity
  • Regulate mood along the gut-brain axis
  • Normalize the hormonal balance of women
  • Control the overgrowth of opportunistic infections such as Candida, coli, C. diff, parasites, etc.
  • Support to remove toxins, heavy metals, excess cholesterol, and more

The overuse of antibiotics destroys these functions. Therefore, it is not surprising that women with recurrent urinary tract infections suffer from constipation, gas, bloating, diarrhea, moodiness, depression, other chronic infections, skin rashes, and yeast infections.

At the Biotherapy Clinic, we have been using a unique healing program to help women with recurrent UTI for many years. This healing program is aimed not only at suppressing the infection but also at repairing and restoring the local immunity of the urinary tract to avoid future flare-ups and to minimize the damage from overuse of antibiotics.

It should be said here that the overuse of antibiotics leads to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant forms of bacteria and yeast. This means that in the future when we desperately need antibiotics to save our lives, they will be useless.

A woman’s genitourinary tract has been designed to be healthy and fight infection. In healthy women, even when bacteria E. coli occur inside the urinal bladder, they are flushed out with urine. To reside and make colonies, harmful bacteria have adhesive actions to attach to the bladder’s walls. If they can do this, bacteria make colonies covered by biofilm; therefore, the immune system cannot destroy them. Biotherapy healing program focuses on the root of the problem using an alkaline diet, acupuncture, drinking healing mineral water, nutritional supplements, and herbs.

In the active lovemaking women, the use of spermicide or antibiotics escalates the risk of UTI. It also increases the incidence of infections due to drug-resistant microbes and yeast. In many situations, urinal tract infection and yeast infections go together. It happens because the healthy, protecting vaginal flora is irradicated by antibiotics. Candida-yeast overgrowth suppresses whole-body immunity, also diminishes local resistance to harmful bacteria. By using the Biotherapy Whole-Body Cleansing anti-Candida program, we can restore proper immunity, return the natural mechanism to fight with infection. We can help.

Endometriosis

How the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help with endometriosis

Endometriosis affects 7% to 15% of women of reproductive age.

Endometriosis is characterized by the presence and growth of uterine tissue (endometrium) in areas other than the uterus. This can be the pelvic floor or around the fallopian tubes and ovaries. The cause of endometriosis is considered to be retrograde menstrual bleeding through the fallopian tubes into the pelvic cavity. This allows the glandular tissue, which must leave the body through the vagina, to be driven and grown internally. This displaces endometrial tissue that remains hormonally sensitive as it is in the uterus, responding to the effects of female hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. Endometrial tissue adheres to the pelvis’ walls and the surfaces of the pelvic organs, where they grow and continue to thicken and bleed during each menstrual cycle.

It leads often to the concurrent pain and discomfort symptoms of endometriosis that occur just before and during menstruation. These endometrial implants also stimulate the immune system and local inflammatory response.

These effects are believed to underlie infertility, pelvic pain, pain during or after sex, and menstrual pain, heavy menstrual periods or bleeding between periods that often accompanies endometriosis. Some women may experience fatigue, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, nausea, vaginal yeast infection, especially during menstrual periods.

The surrounding tissue can become irritated, eventually leading to scarring tissue and adhesions – abnormal bands of connective tissue that can cause the pelvic organs to stick together.

What do fibroids, endometriosis, and breast cancer have in common? The female hormone estrogen. This hormone is a causative factor in the growth of fibroid tumors, endometriosis lesions, and various types of breast cancer. In fact, estrogen-sensitive breast cancer is the most common type of breast cancer. This means that increasing estrogen production and decreasing estrogen excretion are potentially harmful to the body. Inflammation, insulin resistance, and stress are the leading causes of many diseases, including endometriosis.

Conventional treatment for endometriosis usually involves medication or surgery.

More commonly used pain relievers, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or Naproxen sodium (Aleve), are used by many women to relieve painful menstrual cramps.

Hormone therapy with artificial hormones or substances that stop ovulation in the form of BCPs, IUDs, patches is widespread. Surgery to remove endometriotic implants while preserving the uterus and ovaries, or hysterectomy with removal of the uterus, sometimes with the ovaries, is also common. However, this approach does not guarantee an end to symptoms. All of these symptomatic treatments are not always effective and have serious side effects in the long term.

Here are complementary and alternative treatments, which are safe and effective and address the root of the problem.

  • Normalization of estrogen production
  • Increasing estrogen excretion
  • Decreasing cell sensitivity to estrogen
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Pain relief
  • Insulin resistance control
  • Relieving stress, anxiety, depression, etc.

Many foods can induce and reduce estrogen dominance. At the Biotherapy Clinic, we will teach you how to use the right things. A healthy diet is vital. Not many people realize that environmental and foodborne toxins lead to estrogen production and are carcinogenic.

Estrogen can accumulate in fat tissue, and conversely, adipose tissue can produce more estrogen. Consequently, women with weight problems are prone to estrogen predominance.

The liver is a vital organ for proper hormonal regulation. It converts excess estrogen and excretes it in the bile into the intestines and then out. All problems associated with a fatty liver, flabby gallbladder, and congested bile suppress estrogen elimination and require correction.

Is it possible to reduce the sensitivity of cells to estrogen? Yes. For thousands of years, people have been using so-called feminine herbs. They mimic estrogen, promote regular menstruation, minimize pain, and abnormal bleeding.

Suffering from endometriosis can make life miserable. Therefore, pain and pain alone make women look for something to relieve pain. Pain can lead to stress, anxiety, and depression, which in turn increases pain. A vicious circle ensues.

We at the Alternative Biotherapy Clinic, usually use time-tested, evidence-based treatments focusing on pain and inflammation. Each person has a unique situation, which is why we adapt our treatment to someone’s needs. Some of these methods are:

Healing, alkaline diet

Acupuncture. We use not only Chinese acupuncture but also Japanese scalp therapy, Russian earlobe acupuncture, Korean Su Jok hand-foot acupuncture, and much more.

Abdominal massage can promote bile secretion and estrogen release, relieve constipation and adhesions, and eliminate pelvic congestion.

Herbal Medicine. Our unique herbal formulas, such as Yin Formula, Damp Water Formula, and Lower Bowel Formula, help many women decrease pain and anxiety and improve digestive issues.

Some of our supplements naturally reduce pain, inflammation, cramps, hormonal imbalance and promote immunity and fertility. They help women with persistent overweight problems, anxiety, sleepless nights, mood swings, fatigue, irritability, etc.

Endometriosis isn’t just about painful periods. Scientists in Australia believe that endometriosis may be the result of microbial dysbiosis. Dysbiosis is a condition in which beneficial bacteria from the large intestine, vagina, uterus is destroyed, and opportunistic infections such as microbes, parasites, yeast take their place. Biotherapy Whole-Body Cleansing with the restoration of beneficial bacteria has helped many women regain their health.

One of the most frequently asked women questions: “Why is it so difficult to lose weight if I eat right and exercise?” You can do the same, but suddenly you realize that this is not enough. You may not be aware that hormonal imbalances can affect weight gain. Estrogen predominance, insulin resistance, hypothyroidism, and stress hormone-cortisol affect your weight, mood, immunity, and metabolism. But you can lose weight, get healthy, and do it naturally by balancing essential hormones. We can help.

Peripheral Neuropathy

How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic Can Help People with Peripheral Neuropathy

If you are here, you (or someone you love) have peripheral neuropathy. Possibly, you are looking for help without medications and drugs. If you have diabetes, you are concern about foot surgery.

You are in the right place. In the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic, we have a unique, non-drug, holistic, natural healing program to decrease chronic pain, extreme sensitivity to touch or lack of feeling, numbness, burning, tingling, cramps, etc.

The main reasons for peripheral neuropathy are trauma, toxicity, deficiency, and inflammation, leading to the nervous branches’ damage. The occurrence of peripheral neuropathy may affect some factors – one of the most common causes of chronic peripheral neuropathy is considered diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

Peripheral neuropathy can cause the following symptoms:

  • Tingling and numbness in parts of the body
  • Loss of ability to feel pain
  • Loss of ability to distinguish between changes in temperature
  • Loss of coordination (the ability to determine the position of the joints)
  • The burning or shooting pain, aggravated at night

Treatment of peripheral neuropathy has two purposes – treatment of the disease, which has resulted in damage to the peripheral nerves and caused neuropathy, and the suppression of unpleasant symptoms, which may be associated with the development of neuropathy. The Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic healing program focuses simultaneously on toxicity, deficiency, and inflammation and we employ various non-drug approaches for chronic pain and other symptoms to solve the root of the problem. *

For chronic pain and inflammation, we implement:

  1. Acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, magnet ear lobe point massage
  2. Magnet therapy
  3. Restoring proper cervical vertebra alignment (Atlas therapy), point massage
  4. Cupping-vacuum therapy
  5. Biotherapy Herbal Balsam topically on the place of the pain
  6. Healing, anti-inflammation diet
  7. Herbal Medicine
  8. Nutritional Supplements
  9. Deep relaxation, Medical Hypnosis, Custom Hypnosis CD
  10. Healing exercises and more

For toxic overload we implement:

  1. Drinking Karlovy Vary healing mineral water
  2. Restoration of the beneficial intestinal bacteria
  3. Colon Hydrotherapy
  4. Ionic Footbath Detox
  5. Healing diet
  6. Herbal medicine
  7. Heavy metal detox

Treatment of the peripheral neuropathy is a process. It needs the time, multidisciplinary alternative medicine approaches, patient’s involvement, insistent and persistent healing. The reward is the reducing or lack of the symptoms without painkiller medications and their side effects.
