CBD

There is a lot of controversy surrounding CBD Oil for pain or cancer, so I thought I would put some info on my website that might help you understand the differences between CBD oil from Hemp and CBD oil from marijuana – 2 different plants. Other benefits to Hemp CBD are:

  • – Chronic pain and inflammation
  • – Arthritis
  • – Sleep disorders and insomnia
  • – Anxiety, stress, and depression
  • – Skin conditions
  • – Low appetite and poor metabolic function
  • – Weaker immune system

These are great articles I found and a link at the end of one article to another great article. Hope this helps!

The following is an article about THC, NOT the amazing CBD that is in Hemp products. Hemp is ONLY CBD. Marijuana replaces some of the CBD with THC – which is what this article is talking about. Several of my patients that are loving the benefits of CBD have said “I can’t wait until they legalize the good CBD stuff (meaning marijuana)”, but THC does bad things to your health as you will read. STICK WITH HEMP CBD!! It is so amazing!!

Oxygen

OXYGEN IS LIFE!! We can't live without it, but what if we encouraged MORE of it in our bodies? That's what Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) does! HBOT delivers pure oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure in a hyperbaric chamber. You relax in the chamber and read a book, take a nap, talk on your phone or whatever. While the patient is inside the hyperbaric chamber, it is pressurized with pure oxygen. The patient breathes normally, while the system pressure is increased around them. The increased pressure and oxygen concentration supersaturate the blood and tissues with oxygen at the cellular level, which drastically enhances the body’s ability to heal.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) Benefits:

  • Promoting wound healing
  • Improving and repairing injury, by increasing oxygen delivery to damaged tissues
  • Improving infection control (bacteria/virus/fungus/yeast)
  • Helping in new blood vessel formation from pre-existing vessels (angiogenesis/heart disease)
  • Reducing local swelling (edema)
  • Increasing the production of collagen (prevents aging/youthfulness)
  • Stem cell release and migration to area of injury (heal injuries)
  • Improving perfusion (blood flow) to the affected area of the brain (concussion recovery)
  • Decreasing markers of inflammation in the body and brain (Parkinson's/Alzheimer's)
  • Reducing the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Reducing the effects of decompression illness (HBOT was first utilized medically for this condition)

The hyperbaric chamber benefits the body and the brain by infusing them with increased levels of oxygen. As a result, idling or non-functioning brain neurons can be stimulated to return to a more normal function.

The benefits of decreasing edema and pain mean that the need for certain medications may also be minimized. Because of accelerated healing, patients will feel better, look better and will resume normal activity sooner. These are chambers you can purchase for home use or look for a spa where you can pay for 30-60 minute sessions. We do not have one at our clinic, but wanted to have this info available for you on our website as patients have asked where they can purchase their own chamber. I am including a link to Bill whom I have connections with to get you information on your own chamber:-)

Making your own Ozone at Home

Ozone is O3, which means it has an extra oxygen molecule to "give away". This oxygen molecule can be used to cancel out free radicals and detox your body. This treatment (go to http://www.theozonemiracle.com/ to learn about all ways you can use as a treatment) is beneficial for many auto-immune diseases as it regulates the immune system and detoxes the body of impurities. It may be of benefit to help with chronic diseases such as Lyme, cancer, MS, chronic fatigue, cancer, AIDS, arthritis, hair loss, etc. There is a wide range of ways that ozone therapy adds to health and wellness. Ozone is anti-ageing. It oxygenates your cells and creates a hostile environment for cancer, bugs and disease. Those with autoimmune complaints can use ozone to prevent the body from attacking healthy human cells. It increases energy production in cells throughout the body. Healthy cells live longer and resist age. Antioxidants help protect the body from diseases, especially cancer. Ozone leads to reduced oxidation, making you more resilient against disease. It reduces acidity, and therefore destroys bacteria and has the potential to kill cancer as it comes in contact with any cancerous cells.

Another great source to learn about ozone as well as ozonated olive oil is http://www.oxygenhealingtherapies.com/ozone_therapy.html (See Chart Below)

One question I get asked a lot is why the news talks about high levels of ozone being bad. Ozone is measurable in the atmosphere. It rises when pollution goes up in our atmosphere consisting of hydrocarbons, nitrogen, and sulphur dioxide. Ozone monitoring has been used for the past thirty years to determine the level of pollution so it has been mistakenly assumed to be the BAD part of pollution, but it is not. Medical grade Ozone is made from PURE clean oxygen WITHOUT pollution! It smells like being next to the ocean which is an amazing smell. It is the single safest therapy in the history of medicine :-)

I choose www.ozonegenerator.com for my Ozone Generator at home. They occasionally have special offers to patients that are referred by their doctor, so at least ask. Fair warning that the ozone water it produces really gives you a burst of energy! It is very easy to assemble and operate with ALL GLASS PARTS. Do not get an ozone generator with metal anywhere inside as ozone corrodes it and the machine will not last. This is a picture of the complete system PLUS you will need an industrial oxygen tank to keep filled up with oxygen. Very simple system to operate!


Double sterilization: ultraviolet + ozone

The benefits of ozone on the body include strengthening the immune system, stimulating white blood cells, preventing infections and immune system deficiencies by destroying fungi, bacteria and viruses. It also helps to counteract cell mutations, thereby preventing some types of cancer.

Unlike Chemical approaches to water disinfection, UV light provides rapid, effective inactivation of microorganisms through a physical process. When bacteria, viruses, and protozoa are exposed to the germicidal wavelengths of UV light, they are rendered incapable of reproducing and infecting.

Air Filtration

Clean air is not only important, but essential to us all. However, some might say that clean air is not possible these days due to the constant air pollution all around us. The cleanest environment, room, or air can still be filled with invisible and sometimes visible particles and dirt that could be detrimental to your health or even aggravate already existing health issues. This is one of the reasons air purifiers are great – because they reduce the concentrations of pollutants.

Air purifiers are appliances that aid in the removal of these air pollutants. They are especially helpful for people who suffer from asthma or allergies and are also used to get rid of secondhand smoke.

Air purifiers often have HEPA filters that assist with cleaning and purifying the air that is circulated. HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air and is a type of air filter that purifies the air by trapping small particles that a vacuum would only recirculate into the air. The HEPA filter is proven to remove about 99.9% of dust particles and impurities from the air including pollen, mold, spores, pet dander, and/or dust mites.

Some air purifiers also contain UV or Ozone which is another powerful air cleaner. Vaccuums sometimes just recirculate the pollen, dander, dust and allergens. Clean your air like you clean your house.

If you suffer from asthma, allergies, or any other respiratory condition that could be worsened by airborne particles, an air purifier may provide you with some relief. Air purifiers are especially important in houses because they quickly and quietly clear allergens and other particles, effectively remove odor, pollen, smoke, dust, pet dander, and almost all other pollutants present in the air. Without an air purifier, your house could collect lots of dust and germs, which could lead to health problems.
