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

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

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.*

Interstitial Cystitis (IC) or Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS)

How the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help with Interstitial Cystitis (IC) or Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS)

You suffer from the low abdomen pain, urinary frequency, burning sensation and pain in urethra and pelvic area, painful sexual intercourse, and waking up from sleep to urinate. It may show interstitial cystitis (IC) or bladder pain syndrome (BPS). Typically, this condition is often misdiagnosed as urinary tract infection (UTI) in women and prostatitis in men.

On the other hand, IC/BPS has not just a bacterial infection and many rounds of antibiotics do not help. Moreover, in some cases, these treatments make the things worse. At present, the cause of IC/BPS is unknown. Regardless of the cause, the greater part of people with IC/BPS struggle with an inflammation that damages inner bladder lining, with its irritation, sensitivity, pain, and scarring.

However, some explanations have been suggested such as the autoimmune process, nerve sensitivity, allergy, leaky inner bladder lining, infection, toxic substance in the urine, stress, and genetics, etc. Now, there is evident that many patients with IC/BPS have been diagnosed with other disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome, digestive disorders, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), fibromyalgia, depression, allergies, sinusitis, Sjogren’s syndrome, vaginal yeast, etc. It may raise the possibility that interstitial cystitis (IC) or bladder pain syndrome (BPS)can be caused by the same reasons as these other disorders.

If you are not satisfied with conventional treatment, Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help. We consider that it is vital to break the vicious circle of IC/BPS → antibiotics, drugs → killing the beneficial intestinal bacteria→ Candida-yeast overgrow → low immunity, inner toxicity → IC/BPSand so on.

The problem with antibiotics is that they kill all the beneficial bacteria in your body along with the harmful. In many cases, the harmful bacteria and Candida-yeast become resistant to antibiotics and drugs, which lessen their effectiveness. Candida-yeast overgrowth is a great mimicker of many conditions. If you want to know more about Candida-yeast overgrowth, read our EBook “Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You”, part 1. http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/236176#longdescr

In the Biotherapy Clinic, we focus on your overall health to increase natural immunity and resistance to harmful microorganisms, decrease inflammation, irritation, and pain.

The Biotherapy unique program for the interstitial cystitis (IC) or bladder pain syndrome (BPS) * may include:

The interstitial cystitis (IC) or bladder pain syndrome (BPS) is very complicated disorder that has a profound impact on quality of life. Therefore, there is no magic bullet to this condition

Recent studies have revealed that between 2.7 and 6.5 million women in the USA and 1.8 to 4.2 million men have symptoms of The interstitial cystitis (IC) or bladder pain syndrome (BPS).

Persistent cough after cold, bronchitis, pneumonia

How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help people with persistent cough after cold, bronchitis, pneumonia

You just had a cold or flu and got the typical treatment with OTC medication. After a few weeks, you suffer from stubborn, persistent cough day and night. In the worst-case scenario, you suffered from bronchitis or pneumonia and got conventional treatment with antibiotics. You probably took anti-cough, anti-mucous, anti-congestion, anti-histamine medications and Tylenol or Ibuprofen for fever or headache. Nevertheless, your continuing cough did not quit for a long time and anti-cough medicine gave a short relief.

To help a person with residual symptoms of the cold, bronchitis, or pneumonia, we, at Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic, use many non-drug methods, which have a long history of the healing throat, lung, and bronchi all over the globe. Some of them are used even in ICU, other are easy enough to be used at home. The goal of this holistic treatment is to find and remove the reasons for the stubborn cough.

The primary reasons for cough are irritation, congestion, inflammation, and infection of airways. Mainly viruses cause cold and flu. Viruses’ cause the swelling, irritation, congestion, and inflammation of the throat and bronchi. The airways are getting oversensitive and vulnerable for bacterial infection.

The often medical action on cold and flu now is trying to destroy the microorganisms by use of the potent antibiotics, decrease the fever, cough, and congestion by medications. That approach may cause problems, which have a close relation to development of chronic cough. Look at the facts.

First, antibiotics don’t kill the viruses.

Second, overuse of the antibiotics leads to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as certain strains of gonorrhea, tuberculosis, and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Third, wide-spectrum antibiotics kill not only harmful bacteria, but vital for humans, delicate beneficial intestinal flora. Lack of beneficial bacteria can cause low immunity, parasitic infection, Clostridium difficile diarrhea, loss of minerals through diarrhea, inflammation of the gut, vitamin deficiencies, indigestion, development of food allergies, etc.

Fourth, antibiotics lead to overgrowth of the Candida-yeast and other dangerous intestinal infections. After eradication of the friendly intestinal flora by strong antibiotics, Candida-yeast takes over the GI tract and the problems such as diarrhea or a yeast infection start to develop. More medical information about Candida-yeast, you can find in our EBook “Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You”, part 1.

Chronic cough can be consequents of the overgrowth of the Candida-yeast it the sinuses, throat, bronchi.

Fifth, cold and flu viruses create inflammation damages of the airways with mucus congestion. Normally it takes 4-7 days for the immune system to develop antibody to the virus. Fever, cough, mucous is natural healing respond on virus. Some OTC cold medicines badly influence in this process leading to the prolong illnesses and developing of the chronic symptoms.

Sixth, the outer coating that forms the inside layer of the trachea, bronchi, and most of the respiratory tract consists of the special cells, which produce mucous and have cilia. The term cilia is Latin for “eyelashes.” These hair-like structures wave to move the debris out. The Cilia “sweeps” the mucous, which contains the dust, harmful microorganisms out of the respiratory tract. Anti-mucous, anti-congestion, anti-cough, anti-inflammation drugs interrupt the natural healing mechanisms leading to a lingering cough.

If the persistent cough does not improve, and that can be frustrating for you, we at Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic will help you to verify the reasons why it is persistent and restore the natural balance in your respiratory tract and entire body.

We widely use healing diet, herbal inhalations, acupuncture, lung massage, cupping, magnets, hot chest compresses, individual lung exercises, tapping, etc., with a significant therapeutic outcome.

In the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic we use our unique herbal formulas, nutritional supplements with proven toxic and quality control, healing mineral water that is prepared from genuine Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt, vitamins, minerals, essential trace elements, probiotics, enzymes, bee products and more. Everything that we do focuses on bringing back healing power of the body.

Restoration of the friendly intestinal flora after antibiotics is not a simple work, as many people think. Standard advice ”Drink yogurt” or “Take probiotics” is not going to work in the case like this. Candida-yeast, parasites, and other harmful bacteria take over the gastrointestinal tract, sinuses, throat, bronchi, inner ear, vagina, skin, etc.

In the jungle of the internet, many sites tell how to kill, eradicate, get rid of Candida forever. It is very far from the truth. Candida-yeast is normally resided in a small amount inside the human body. People regularly get yeast and fungus with foods, water, air and through the skin. If a human being doesn’t not have a strong defense mechanism against yeast, there is no chance of surviving. The main organ that protects us from the Candida-yeast overgrowth is friendly intestinal flora. Anti-Candida European Whole Body Cleansing Program at Biotherapy Clinic is a proven, practical choice for people with chronic cough after courses of the antibiotics.

Despite vaccination and common use of antibiotics, the medical statistic shows that the number of the lung diseases is growing in the U.S. Currently in the United States, more than 23 million people have asthma. Approximately 13.6 million adults have been diagnosed with COPD, and approximately equal number has not yet been diagnosed.

Incompletely cured cough can go to chronic pneumonia or bronchitis with a substantial possibility of future asthma, COPD, or even cancer.

To obtain benefits from the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic of San Francisco Bay Area for Incompletely cured chronic cough, one can choose from the following options:

Walking Pneumonia

How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help people with recovery after Walking Pneumonia

Your doctor diagnosed you with “walking pneumonia”, and you underwent conventional treatment with antibiotics. Possibly you took anti-cough, anti-congestion, anti-mucous, anti-histamine medications, inhalers, and NSAID such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen for fever or headache. You felt better and even started to work and returned to your everyday activity. Nevertheless, you felt very weak, you experienced a persistent cough with sputum, possible night sweat, gas, bloating, constipation, skin itching and etc. You did not feel well even in months after walking pneumonia.

Let’s look what could be the reasons for your symptoms.

We live in the pharmaceutical world, so the typical medical action on walking pneumonia is trying to destroy the microorganisms, which cause the walking pneumonia by prescribing strong antibiotics. For today, we know that in many cases walking pneumonia is triggered by viruses and opportunistic infection that usually reside in the upper respiratory tract. It is known that antibiotics cannot kill the viruses. Due to overuse of antibiotics there is a large number of antibiotics resistant microbes, which can lead to a chronic form of the walking pneumonia.

High spectrum antibiotics, like an atomic bomb, detrimentally kill many microorganisms. Unfortunately antibiotics eradicate friendly intestinal flora-our vital organ for proper digestion, immunity and metabolism. Friendly intestinal flora control the growth of Candida-yeast, parasites in our body.

Unpleasant symptoms of walking pneumonia such as temperature, cough, mucous discharge, low appetite, thirst are the symptoms of natural, protective reactions of the body on the infection and congestion. By suppressing this reaction, we suppress the natural healing mechanism. It can prolong the recovery and can lead to the chronic form of the walking pneumonia.

To help a person with residual symptoms of the walking pneumonia, we, at Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic, use many non-drug approaches, which have a long history of the healing lung and bronchi disorders. Some of them are used in ICU all over the world. Some of them are easy and can be used at home. The goal of this holistic treatment is to:

  • Decrease inflammation and congestion
  • Destroy the antibiotics resistant microorganisms
  • Improve microcirculation in the lung
  • Enhance the gas exchange (oxygen and carbon dioxide) in the lungs
  • Move congested mucous out
  • Bust Immunity
  • Restore the friendly intestinal bacteria that were killed by antibiotics
  • Suppress the Candida-yeast overgrowth
  • Normalize acid-alkaline balance
  • Alleviate stress and more

Something looks strange here even for medical practitioners. Is it possible to do that without any medications? In the Biotherapy Clinic, we use decades of the medical experience of Peter Melamed, Ph.D., who worked 15 years as MD in ICU and saved many patients with severe pneumonia. Besides medications, he widely used vitamins, healing diet, herbal inhalations, acupuncture, lung massage, cupping, magnets, hot chest compresses, special lung exercises, tapping, etc., which lead to a very good therapeutic outcome.

In the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic we use our unique herbal formulas, nutritional supplements with proven toxic and quality control, healing mineral water that is prepared from genuine Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt, minerals, essential trace elements, probiotics, enzymes, bee products and more.

Ancient Chinese doctors put lung, nose and large intestine in the one system. These great observers thousands of year’s ego understood the connection between lung and colon health. It is proven now, because overusing of the antibiotics leads to epidemic of the digestive disorders by wiping out friendly intestinal flora and, as a result, Candida-yeast overgrowth. More medical information you can find in our EBook “Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You”, part 1.

If antibiotics are necessary, it is essential to make the next step to restore the friendly intestinal flora. Restoration of the friendly intestinal flora is not a simple task, as many people believe. You can take tons of probiotics and drink gallons of “yogurt”, but beneficial bacteria cannot colonize in the colon that is full of Candida-yeast, parasites, toxins and also if person is on the bad food and suffers from constipation and bad digestion. Anti-Candida European Whole Body Cleansing Program at Biotherapy Clinic is an excellent choice for people after courses of antibiotics.

The chronic dry cough in many situations is nothing more than a process of the growth of the Candida-yeast in sinuses and lungs.

Despite vaccination and common use of antibiotics, the medical statistic shows that the number of pneumonias rises in the U.S. Incompletely cured walking pneumonia can go to chronic pneumonia or bronchitis with a substantial possibility of future asthma, COPD even cancer.

ADD/ADHD, Learning Disability and Autism

How the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help children with ADD/ADHD, Learning Disability and Autism.

According to a new report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1.6 million elementary school-aged children have been diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In a national survey, the parents of 7 percent of children 6-11 years of age reported ever being told by a doctor or health professional that their child had ADHD.

The exact cause of ADD/ADHD is not known. We don’t have to blame the parents – it is not heredity. No specific gene has been linked to the disorder. Many scientists consider that the function of chemicals in the brain (neurotransmitters) that regulate attention, memory, mood and abnormal function of the some parts of the brain to be related to the symptoms of ADD/ADHD and Autism. And only bad, polluted, toxic environment outside and inside the body we have to blame for it.

Many natural health oriented doctors and scientists believe that potential causes for the modern epidemic of Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD), and Autism are:

  • Food additives, refined sugar, pesticides and toxic chemicals in the food
  • Candida-yeast overgrow
  • Poor nutrition with deficiency of vital minerals, microelements, essential fatty acids (EFA), phospholipids, probiotics, some vitamins and so on
  • Severe anemia
  • Natural light deficiency
  • Food sensitivities and/or allergies
  • Heavy metal toxicity (such as lead, mercury, or cadmium)
  • Lack of sleep, family stress, and abuse
  • Poor teaching methods combined with lack of discipline and more

The biggest complaint of parents and poorly trained teachers is that these children are constantly saying “I won’t do it.” They are punished physically and emotionally for what appears to be a rebellious attitude, when in fact the children are really saying “I can’t do it,” and they are just too embarrassed to admit it.

Main symptoms of ADD/ADHD and Autism are:

  • Hyperactivity and talking too much or under activity
  • Motor impairment
  • Emotional instability
  • Extreme distractibility
  • Disorders of attention (short attention span, distractibility, lack of perseverance, failure to finish things off, not listening, poor concentration)
  • Disorders of memory (forgetfulness) and thinking
  • Impulsiveness (action before thought, abrupt shifts in activity, poor organizing, jumping up in class)
  • Abnormalities of eating, drinking, sleeping, self-care
  • Problems adapting to new situations
  • Disturbance of behavior such as aggression, self injury, running away, screaming et cetera
  • Specific learning disabilities
  • Disorders of speech and hearing
  • Self-destructive behavior
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Inability to sit still and a tendency to disturb others and more

If you are here on this web site, you maybe looking for help your loved one with ADD/ADHD or Autism or Learning Disability by using non-drug approach. What you only need to help your small one are Believing, Patience and Discipline.

ADD/ADHD in many cases has been linked to diet, which includes food sensitivities, allergies and nutritional deficiencies. Simply eliminating certain foods or adding others may reduce symptoms or eliminate them altogether. For example, British doctors found that food additives might make kids hyper.

Parents often tell us that their child’s behavior is considerably worse the morning after Halloween or after any sugar binge. Researchers at the Yale University School of Medicine have recently supported their perceptions. They found that within a few hours after substantial sugar intake, children release large amounts of adrenaline, which causes them to experience shakiness, anxiety, excitement, and concentration problems. Their brain waves also indicated a decreased ability to focus.

Daniel C. Dantini M.D. and many other scientists consider that food allergy can contribute significantly or play an important role in autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Read here

Milk and wheat being among the most common allergens, their limitation leads to success in a large number of cases. You will get the written diet with explanation of which foods are wrong and which are beneficial for your child.

Mercury exposure has been linked to lower intelligence scores and neurobehavioral problems in children. http://newideas.net/adhd/differential-diagnosis/mercury-chemical-toxicity We can rule out the heavy metal poisoning by performing a special toxic elements test. You can see the sample of this test.

Beside you will get the written diet, we’ll give you very good quality and quantity food supplements, unique herbal formulas. All of them have the scientifically back up and we customize them for your child’s special needs.

Biotherapy Cellular Magnesium-Potassium Magnesium is a vital catalyst in producing energy by enhancing enzyme activity. Nerve and muscle function, healthy blood vessels, and restful sleep depend on sufficient magnesium. It counteracts stress, irregular heartbeat, emotional instability, and depression. Supplemental magnesium is helpful in the successful treatment of ADD/ADHD. Potassium is an electrolyte mineral located in the body fluids. It balances the acid-alkaline system and transmits electrical signals between the cells and the nerves. Both mental and physical stress can lead to its deficiency. Biotherapy Cellular Magnesium-Potassium decreases amount of toxic heavy metals in the body’s cells and beneficial for kids with cognitive impairment, depression, anxiety, constipation ect. It was shown that 50 children with ADHD who were magnesium deficient received magnesium supplements of 200 mg/day for six months as compared to control ADHD children who were magnesium deficient but did not receive supplements. At the end of six months the researchers found an increase in the magnesium content of hair and serum and a significant decrease in hyperactivity compared to the control group.

Yin Formula naturally relieves stress, hyperactivity and calms the body without narcotic effect. This is a unique blend of herbs to promote Yin action. In Chinese Medicine Yin by connection to Mind means night, sleep, calm, silence, less motion etc. Excessive activity and inability to focus attention result from insufficient yin, where yin represents the calm and receptive aspects of human personality. Natural herbal remedies are used to gently and effectively treat the symptoms, while at the same time helping the person to heal and to reach a state of balance and health. While an immediate calming effect is usually noted, it takes a little longer for improvements in concentration, distractibility and memory to be noted.

Biotherapy B 12 contains Vitamin B-12 and Folic Acid. Vitamin B-12, also called cobalamin, is important to good health. It helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells, and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Low levels of Vitamin B-12 can cause difficulty in maintaining balance, depression, moodiness, confusion, poor memory, fatigue and dementia. It is essential for the metabolism of the nerve tissue and necessary for the health of the entire nervous system. It stimulates growth and increases appetite in children.

Folic acid. Vitamin B9, also called folic acid or foliate, is crucial for proper brain function and plays an important role in mental and emotional health. Folic acid also works closely together with vitamin B12 to regulate the proper function in the body.

Mega EPA/DHA is a convenient way to take EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) – the essential fatty acids (Omega-3) in a concentrated form. The essential fatty acids are used to make brain and nerve tissue in the body and are crucial for proper growth, mental function, and brain development. The body cannot produce the Omega-3 on its own and therefore must receive this key ingredient through diet and supplementation. More than 80% of children diagnosed with ADHD show deficiencies of this “building block of the brain”. Learning specialists now believe many childhood behavior and learning problems are associated with Omega-3 deficiencies. This deficiency has a greater impact on males because their requirements for essential fatty acids are, in general, much higher.

Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) is exceptionally beneficial in helping to eliminate brain toxins and improve memory and learning. DMAE has shown benefits against the disruptive and impulsive behaviors caused by attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). DMAE is thought to increase the levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is a chemical in the brain that raises brain powers. DMAE alleviates the behavioral problems and increases Attention Span, decreases Aggression, improves Learning ability and sometimes increases Intelligence in 70% of ADD patients.

PABA (Para-aminobenzoic acid) helps the body generate important nutrients such as vitamin K, Folic Acid and Thiamine. PABA stimulates intestinal bacteria, enabling them to produce folic acid, assists in the formation of red blood cells which carry oxygen to sensitive brain tissue and to all parts of the body. A deficiency of PABA may cause extreme fatigue, eczema, irritability, depression, nervousness, constipation, headaches.

To alleviate ADD, ADHD, Autism, Learning Disability, Bipolar type symptoms we use the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) approaches including acupuncture, acupressure, Chinese herbs etc. Different kind of countries today developed their own methods linked to acupuncture treatment. We incorporate these up-dated methods in our practice: Korean Su-Jok – hand-foot therapy, Japanese scalp therapy and massage, Russian ear lobe acupuncture (Auriculotherapy), acupressure and magnet therapy. Years of scientific research in France and Soviet Union have produced such impressive results that the World Health Organization now recognizes Auriculotherapy as a means of diagnosis and treatment for conditions such as compulsive disorders, muscle and skeletal problems, learning disorders, behavioral problems and many illnesses.

Acupuncture and Acupressure are an amazing medicine for children. We use an ancient form of pediatric acupuncture which does not require needles to be inserted into the body. Instead, we use a variety of the acupuncture point’s stimulation by fingers, magnets, vibration, plasters and other methods. Acupuncture has the great advantage of being safe and non-invasive technique. It is free from the side-effects of drugs. It is holistic and curative rather than merely symptomatic or palliative. The long-term effects are to strengthen the child. We make the acupuncture session funny and pleasant, and we involve kids in the healing process by engaging them in games and exercises. We also teach the parents how to do it by your self-acupressure on their children.

Shoulder pain and Rotator cuff disorders

How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help with Shoulder pain, Rotator cuff disorders

If you are here, that can mean only one thing and it is that, you are looking for help with the pain in your shoulder either for yourself or for your loved one. Possibly you underwent the usual treatment such as medicines, painkillers, physical therapy, massages, hormonal injections, etc. Chances are that you were told about surgery, and you are in a big doubt.

Shoulder pain is common after physical activity at work, in the gym, or at home and in people over 50. The shoulder joint is very complex structure in the human body, and it has the largest range of mobility. The bones, muscles, and ligaments of this joint, all work together to keep the shoulder stable and moving easily. The muscles, burses and the tendons surrounding the shoulder joint are called the rotator cuff.

Biotherapy Clinic can help with shoulder pain rotator  cuff injury

Like an old sock is rubbed into holes with time, repetitive motions and trauma of the rotator cuff tears, causing inflammation and pain.

Practitioners in Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic have a lot of experience to heal this common condition, naturally, without drugs. If rest, medications, cortisone injections and physical therapy do not help to relieve the pain, our customized program for shoulder pain can be very beneficial.

Two millions Americans receive treatment due to shoulder pain and every one has specific reasons for this pain. The many names of the shoulder pain are: Swimmer’s shoulder; Pitcher’s shoulder; Tennis shoulder; Shoulder impingement syndrome; Tendinitis – rotator cuff; Shoulder joint bursitis, arthritis, Rotator cuff tendinitis; Shoulder overuse syndrome. Neck problems, fibromyalgia, computer syndrome also can cause shoulder pain. Certain conditions involving structures in your chest or abdomen, such as gallbladder disease, heart disease also may cause shoulder pain. Conditions, which decrease repair process such as low thyroid, diabetes, menopause, chemotherapy, prednisone, etc may prone the person to the shoulder pain. Therefore, the treatment needs to be addressed at roots of problems and be customized.

The main idea for healing rotator cuff disorders is improving of the repairing mechanism, decreasing inflammation, and pain.

To reduce the inflammation, pain, muscle spasms, we use various types of the acupuncture (Chinese-body, Russian-ear lobe, Japanese –scalp and Korean-SuJok-foot/hand). There is clinical evidence that acupuncture is very effective for shoulder pain.

In Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic, to increase action of the acupuncture, we use special treatment that combines electro acupuncture and low-frequency muscle stimulation. Our patients adjust the electric stimulus by themselves, so they feel comfortable during the session and relax. Magnet therapy is also used. These non-drug treatments can improve tissue microcirculation. More blood, more oxygen, more nutrients go to the shoulder joint tissue, help with repairing mechanism, reduce pain, improve movement and restore function of the shoulder joint. Acupuncture alleviates stress and chronic pain, and it also helps with insomnia.

Lack of the essential nutrients can cause repairing deficit, inflammation, nerve damage (neuropathy) and extreme sensitivity to pain. Our nutritional supplementation program includes unique herbal formulas, high quality vitamins, minerals, essential trace elements, amino and fatty acids, natural anti-inflammation and pain reducing remedies. We have never seen serious side effects from this nutritional supplementation program.

We practice individual exercises and massage with unique herbal balsam, as another way for elimination of the chronic pain. Pain alleviation technique and manual therapy can improve neck vertebrae alignment, lessen muscle spasms, decrease compression of the nervous branches in muscle tunnels’, and enhance microcirculation.

Pain causes pain. To cut this vicious circle, acupuncture session in the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic usually combines with relaxation or medical hypnosis. For decades of our practical experience, we have seen that stopping the addiction to painkillers can end chronic pain. The relationship between abnormal pain sensitivity and opioid withdrawal is widely known. This condition is called opioid-induced hyperalgesia. It may seem as a paradox, but in some situations, especially when narcotics were used for a long time, the cessation of the drugs may decrease pain in the shoulder. By our experience, with the help of the knowledgeable professional, friend or family member, and compliance of the patient, safe withdrawal from opioid drugs can be achieved without significant complications in 3-5 days, even in an outpatient setting.

There is no magic bullet to cure shoulder pain. Therefore, Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can offer sufferers of the shoulder pain a customized healing program that can bring people back to normal life.

We don’t focus just on the symptoms; we treat the root of the problem for long lasting results. If conventional medicine did not help, we can.

Bursitis

How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help people with Bursitis

If you are here, you or your loved one suffer from bursitis and look for non-drug, natural approach for this condition. Therefore, you know your diagnosis-“bursitis” from a doctor or the internet, but the tradition treatment approach did not improve your condition or caused some unpleasant side effects.

Bursitis is a painful condition that involves the small fluid-filled pads that are called bursae (bursa (singular)). Bursae design as a cushion between bones, tendons and muscles around the joints. Function of the bursae is to cushion, lubricate, and reduce friction between these tissues so joints can move easily without pain. Bursitis occurs when bursa is getting inflamed. Bursitis usually takes place near joints that carry out regular repetitive motion. These conditions are also referred to as “repetitive strain injuries” (RSI), “cumulative trauma disorders” (CTD) or “occupational overuse syndromes” (OOS).

The most common places for bursitis are in the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, heel, and the bottom of the big toe. They have the different names.

  • Shoulder: subacromial bursitis, bricklayer’s shoulder or frozen shoulder
  • Elbow: olecranon bursitis, tennis elbow, miner’s elbow, dialysis elbow, swellbow, student’s elbow, water on the elbow, dart thrower’s elbow, lunger’s elbow
  • Hip: trochanter bursitis, hip bursitis

Meralgia paresthetica (Bernhardt-Roth syndrome)

How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help people with numbness, burning and pain in the thigh, Meralgia paresthetica or Bernhardt-Roth syndrome

If you suffer from numbness, burning, tingling and severe pain in the thigh, there is a big chance you have a disorder that is often misdiagnosed. The medical term for this disorder is Meralgia Paresthetica. The original term “meralgia paresthetica,” is derived from Latin. In translation, it means “pain and numbness of the thigh”. It also called Bernhardt-Roth syndrome named after medical doctors, who described the disorder in 1895.

Despite hundred of years of existence, treatment of meralgia paresthetica remains extremely difficult.

Practitioners in Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic have a lot of experience to heal this condition naturally, without drugs.

It is known the culprit of the meralgia paresthetica is compression of the one of the big sensory

nerves; lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN); sensitive outer nerve of thigh. This compression results in a terrible burning sensation and pain, lack of feeling sensations in the outer thigh. Banding of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve occurs in the iliac crest area because in this area nerve is closed only to the inguinal ligament and the muscle layer. Putting pressure on the inguinal ligament by wearing belts or tight jeans may cause meralgia paresthetica. Pressure on the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve can occur in the L2-L3 vertebras, in the pelvic area or in the area of the inguinal ligament (see picture).

Pressure on the LFCN, which supplies sensation to upper thigh, may cause symptoms of meralgia paresthetica:

  1. Numbness and tingling in the outer (lateral) part of thighPicture Lateral femoral subcutaneous nerve. 1png
  2. Burning pain or bee-sting like pains in the outer part of the thigh
  3. Less commonly, dull pain occurs in the groin area or across buttocks
  4. Hyper sensitivity to heat

Common reasons for meralgia paresthetica can include:

  • Repetitive motion of the legs
  • Topical injuries to the hip
  • Abdominal compression when wearing trusses, belts, corsets, jeans, and wallets
  • Scar tissue close to the inguinal ligament, due to injuries or past surgery
  • Cycling, prolonged walking or standing
  • Wearing tight clothing

The following conditions may raise the possibility of meralgia paresthetica:

  • Overweight. Being overweight or obese may increase the pressure on the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve
  • Sedentary life style
  • Pregnancy. A large abdomen puts additional strain on the groin, through which the LFCN passes below the inguinal ligament
  • Diabetes. Diabetes-related nerve injury (diabetic neuropathy) can lead to meralgia paresthetica
  • Endometriosis in women and chronic prostatitis in men
  • Age. People between the ages of 40 and 60 are at a higher risk
  • Infectious conditions – it can be associated with herpes zoster, abscesses, appendicitis

Typically, pain in meralgia paresthetica encompasses the front outer thigh from just below the hip

How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help people with Numbness, burning and pain in the thigh, Meralgia paresthetica or Bernhardt-Roth syndrome

to above the knee as you can see in the picture below. In many situations, this disorder is misdiagnosed and is treated regularly by painkillers. If conventional medicine therapy did not work or if it causes side effects, our non-drug approach can be extremely beneficial for you.

Meralgia paresthetica can be treated with alternative therapy methods including weight reduction to reduce belly fat, infrared application, and magnets. Patients should avoid wearing constrictive clothes, belts, or jeans that expose excessive pressure at the inguinal ligament.

To reduce the pain, burning and tingling, we use a different type of the acupuncture (Chinese-body, Russian-ear lobe, Japanese –scalp and Korean-SuJok-foot/hand). There is clinical evidence that electro acupuncture is an effective tool in the Bernhardt-Roth syndrome. It can normalize conductivity and sensitivity of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve and release from the bee-sting like pains, numbness and tingling in the thigh.

We practice individual exercises and massage with herbal balsam, and medical hypnosis as another way for elimination of the chronic pain.

It is known that lack of the essential nutrients can cause nerve damage (neuropathy) and high sensitivity to pain. Our nutritional supplementation program includes unique herbal formulas, high quality vitamins, amino and fatty acids, natural anti-inflammation and pain reducing remedies.

For decades of our experience, we have seen that stopping the addiction to painkillers can stop chronic pain. The relationship between abnormal pain sensitivity and opioid withdrawal is widely known. This condition is called opioid-induced hyperalgesia. It may appear as a paradox, but in some situations, especially when narcotics were used for a long time, the cessation of the drugs may decrease pain in the thigh. In our experience with the help of the knowledgeable professional, friend or family member, and compliance of the patient, safe withdrawal from opioid drugs can be achieved without serious complications in 3-5 days, even in an outpatient setting.

There is no magic bullet to cure pains, numbness, and tingling in the thigh. Therefore, Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can offer sufferers of Meralgia paresthetica or Bernhardt-Roth syndrome a customized healing program that can bring people back to normal life.

We don’t focus just on the symptoms; we treat the root of the problem for long lasting results.
If conventional medicine did not help, we can.
