This therapy exemplifies our commitment to utilizing natural compounds in our quest to provide comprehensive, holistic support for those seeking cancer support.

Cardiovascular Disease is a prevalent condition that demands comprehensive and personalized care. At Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center, we are dedicated to offering innovative and holistic therapies to support heart health and improve cardiovascular function. Recognizing the importance of addressing the underlying causes of cardiovascular issues, we provide therapies like Plaquex, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Chelation Therapy. These therapies are designed to detoxify, rejuvenate, and enhance the circulatory system, contributing to overall cardiovascular health. Our approach is to blend these advanced therapies with a holistic wellness plan, focusing on each patient’s unique health needs and promoting a heart-healthy lifestyle.

Plaquex

Plaquex therapy, a groundbreaking treatment at Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center, offers a novel approach to combating cardiovascular disease. Developed over 50 years ago in Germany, Plaquex is a natural phospholipid, also known as phosphatidylcholine or Essential Phospholipid (EPL). This therapy works by helping to release arteriosclerotic plaque from the body’s arteries, which is crucial in improving cardiovascular health. 

Patients with severe angina and coronary artery blockage have experienced significant relief after undergoing Plaquex therapy.

ALA is a potent antioxidant known for its ability to rejuvenate and protect cells from oxidative stress, which is particularly beneficial for cardiovascular health. In the context of heart disease, ALA plays a significant role in improving endothelial function — the lining of the blood vessels — and enhancing blood flow. 

This therapy can also aid in regulating blood lipid levels and blood pressure, factors crucial in managing and preventing further cardiovascular complications. Our expert team administers ALA therapy in a controlled environment, ensuring it complements other treatments and lifestyle modifications aimed at improving heart health. By integrating ALA therapy into our holistic approach, we aim to provide a comprehensive solution that addresses the root causes of cardiovascular issues, supporting our patients on their journey to improved heart health.

Chelation Therapy

Chelation therapy is a pivotal treatment for cardiovascular disease at the Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center. This therapy utilizes chelating agents like EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid), DMPS, DMSA, or Vitamin C to bind and remove heavy metals and toxic substances from the body. The term ‘chelation’ is derived from the Greek word “chele,” meaning “claw,” which aptly describes how these substances encircle and extract toxins, facilitating their elimination through urinary excretion.

EDTA, the most commonly used chelating agent in our therapy, is FDA-approved for treating lead and heavy metal poisoning. While its use in treating other forms of toxicity or circulatory problems is not FDA-approved, it has shown significant benefits in clinical practice. By removing harmful substances, chelation therapy can aid in preventing or treating atherosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes, and circulation issues. It works by attaching to specific minerals that contribute to plaque formation and arterial blockage, effectively cleansing the cardiovascular system. This therapy, administered under expert supervision at our center, is an integral part of our holistic approach to cardiovascular health, offering a non-invasive option to support and improve circulatory function.

Detoxification is a vital aspect of maintaining overall health and wellness, especially in today’s environment filled with various toxins. At Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center, we offer specialized detoxification therapies designed to cleanse the body and support its natural detoxification processes. Our therapies, including Chelation, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Glutathione therapy, are tailored to help remove harmful substances, boost the body’s innate ability to detoxify, and promote overall health. These therapies are administered with care and precision, ensuring a holistic approach to detoxification that aligns with each individual’s health needs.

Chelation Therapy

Chelation therapy is a cornerstone of the detoxification process at Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center. This therapy employs chelating agents, such as EDTA, to bind and remove heavy metals and other toxins from the body. In the context of detoxification, Chelation therapy is instrumental in cleansing the body’s systems, particularly the circulatory and excretory systems. By removing these harmful substances, Chelation therapy aids in reducing the toxic load, which can be a contributing factor to various health issues. 

The process not only helps in detoxifying the body but also in enhancing overall well-being by mitigating the adverse effects of accumulated toxins. At our center, Chelation therapy is administered under strict medical supervision, tailored to each patient’s unique health profile, ensuring a safe and effective detoxification experience. This therapy is an integral part of our commitment to providing comprehensive care and supporting our patients’ journeys toward optimal health.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) therapy plays a significant role in the detoxification process at Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center. Renowned for its potent antioxidant properties, ALA aids in neutralizing harmful free radicals and supports the regeneration of other antioxidants within the body. This dual action makes it a powerful tool in detoxification, as it helps protect cells and tissues from oxidative stress while aiding in the removal of toxins.

In the context of detoxification, ALA therapy assists in enhancing liver function, a crucial organ in the body’s natural detoxification process. By supporting liver health, ALA therapy contributes to the more efficient elimination of toxins from the body. Additionally, ALA can improve nerve function and provide protection against nerve damage, which can be a side effect of certain toxins.

At our wellness center, ALA therapy is carefully administered, ensuring it complements other detoxification methods and aligns with each individual’s health needs. This integrative approach underlines our commitment to holistic health and well-being, providing our patients with a comprehensive detoxification strategy.

Glutathione Therapy

Glutathione therapy is a key component of the detoxification program at Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center. Glutathione, a small but powerful protein composed of three amino acids – Cysteine, Glutamic acid, and Glycine – plays a crucial role in the body’s detoxification process. It works by binding to various toxins, including heavy metals, solvents, and pesticides, transforming them into compounds that can be easily excreted through urine or bile.

Recognized as the body’s most vital antioxidant, glutathione is central to protecting cells from damage and maintaining optimal health. Its importance extends beyond detoxification; preliminary research suggests that dietary glutathione from fruits and raw vegetables may offer protection against certain forms of cancer, with animal studies highlighting its potential to inhibit cancer growth.

At our wellness center, glutathione therapy is administered with precision, ensuring it enhances the body’s natural detoxification pathways and contributes to overall well-being. This therapy underscores our commitment to harnessing the body’s inherent healing abilities, providing a natural and effective means to cleanse and rejuvenate the body, and prevent disease.

Epstein Barr, a common virus that affects millions worldwide, can cause a range of symptoms including fatigue, sore throat, and swollen glands. Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center utilizes a combination of Glutathione IV Therapy and Ozone Therapy to provide you with the care you deserve.

This alternative approach to medicine focuses on using high doses of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to promote optimal health and well-being. By targeting the root cause of the virus, rather than just treating the symptoms, orthomolecular medicine offers a more holistic approach to managing Epstein Barr.

Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is transmitted by the bite of a tick, and the disease is prevalent across the United States and throughout the world. Lyme disease is a clinical diagnosis. The disease is caused by a spiral-shaped bacteria (spirochete) called Borrelia burgdorferi. The Lyme spirochete can cause infection of multiple organs and produce a wide range of symptoms.

It has become the number one vector-borne disease in the United States. The CDC states that while over 20,000 cases are reported annually, the actual number is likely 10 times greater. Most doctors on the frontlines of Lyme clinical care believe the actual number is more like 25 times the CDC’s reported case number. It is rare to meet a person who doesn’t know someone who has had Lyme disease or is currently suffering from the effects of this disease.

It is called the new great imitator because of its ability to look like so many other diseases and conditions. Often misdiagnosed when the classic “bull’s eye rash” is absent or when some of the unreliable blood tests are negative, Lyme is taking its toll in terms of human misery in the United States and many other countries. When Lyme is combined with other tick-borne infections, it becomes especially problematic.

Symptoms:

  • Erythma migrans.

Erythema migrans is the tell tale rash which occurs in about 70% to 80% of cases and starts as a small red spot that expands over a period of days or weeks, forming a circular, triangular, or oval-shaped rash. Sometimes the rash resembles a bull’s-eye because it appears as a red ring surrounding a central clear area. The rash, which can range in size from that of a dime to the entire width of a person’s back, appears between three days and a few weeks of a tick bite, usually occurring at the site of a bite. As infection spreads, several rashes can appear at different sites on the body.

Erythema migraines is often accompanied by symptoms such as fever, headache, stiff neck, body aches, and fatigue. These flu-like symptoms may resemble those of common viral infections.

  • Arthritis.

After several weeks of being infected with Lyme disease, approximately 60% of those people not treated with antibiotics develop recurrent attacks of painful and swollen joints that last a few days to a few months. The arthritis can shift from one joint to another; the knee is most commonly affected and usually one or a few joints are affected at any given time. About 10% to 20% of untreated patients will go on to develop lasting arthritis. The knuckle joints of the hands are only very rarely affected.

  • Neurological symptoms.

Lyme disease can also affect the nervous system, causing symptoms such as stiff neck and severe headache (meningitis), temporary paralysis of facial muscles (Bell’s palsy), numbness, pain or weakness in the limbs, or poor coordination. More subtle changes such as memory loss, difficulty with concentration, and a change in mood or sleeping habits have also been associated with Lyme disease. People with these latter symptoms alone usually don’t have Lyme disease as their cause.

Nervous system abnormalities usually develop several weeks, months, or even years following an untreated infection. These symptoms often last for weeks or months and may recur.

  • Heart problems.

Fewer than one out of 10 Lyme disease patients develops heart problems, such as an irregular, slow heartbeat, which can be signaled by dizziness or shortness of breath. These symptoms rarely last more than a few days or weeks. Such heart abnormalities generally appear several weeks after infection, and usually begin to resolve even before treatment.

  • Other symptoms.

Less commonly, Lyme disease can result in eye inflammation and severe fatigue, although none of these problems is likely to appear without other Lyme disease symptoms being present.

Prevention:

  • Tick Avoidance

. Deer ticks require a damp, humid environment to survive and are most often found in wooded areas and wooded edges, especially in leaf litter and low ground cover. They are usually picked up on the lower leg and tend to crawl up the body looking for a place to attach and feed.

  • Protective clothing.

Some ticks are very small and difficult to spot, especially the nymph tick. Wearing light colored clothing whenever working or playing in tick endemic areas makes spotting ticks easier.

  • Tick repellent

. You can substantially increase your level of protection against both ticks and mosquitoes by applying a DEET based or other repellent to your skin, and by pre-treating your clothing with .5% permethrin spray. A single application of permethrin to your clothing can provide up to six weeks of protection, even after repeated washings.

  • Daily tick check.

The single most important step in reducing your chances of contracting tick-borne illnesses is the daily tick check. Be sure to check yourself, your children and pets after spending time outdoors in tick endemic areas. Use the sensitivity of your fingertips to feel for small bumps, starting with a thorough inspection of the:

Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center uses multiple testing methods.  From DNA, western blot to other labs such as Igenix.

Do antibiotics always work to treat Lyme disease?

While antibiotics and other prescription meds are certainly helpful in treating the disease and the all-to-common tick-borne co-infections that often hitchhike into your body through a tick bite.  Antibiotics alone may not suffice because Lyme disease is caused by an intracellular spirochete bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi. “Intracellular means that the spirochete gets into the cell and therefore is not always available to the antibiotics,” explains Isaac Eliaz, MD, coauthor of the journal report and founder of Amitabha Medical Clinic and Healing Center in Sebastopol, California. “The cell membrane inadvertently protects the bacteria and shields it from the antibiotics. Furthermore, the bacteria can also hide dormant in the nervous system, among other places such as in biofilms, where antibiotic drugs can’t reach them.”

What are BioFilms?

A biofilm is a multicellular colony of multiple species of microorganisms and extracellular materials (materials outside of cells) that stick to one another or a surface. In some camps, biofilms are referred to as “slime,” although when viewed with a microscope, fibers are present. The growth and proliferation of disease causing pathogens depends on biofilm. Although not all bacteria form biofilm, Lyme spirochetes are shown to aggregate within them.

How do BioFilms affect Lyme Disease?

Lyme spirochetes are found to aggregate (gather) in biofilms. Until 2009, protocols focused on eradicating individual pathogens, with little attention paid to biofilms. Especially in chronic infections, newer protocols address biofilm as a colony of different organisms with a defensive barrier. This is one of the main reasons high dose antibiotics are not usually successful in treating chronic lyme. The practitioner has not addressed the removal of the biofilm before treatment.

Within the protective barrier of biofilms, pathogens aggregate and multiply, greatly increasing virulence. Enzymes and other agents are recommended in lyme disease protocols to degrade and destabilize the pathogenic biofilm “slime” organism/layer.

Treatment:

Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness uses multiple modalities to treat chronic lyme that may include IV Nutrition, Ozone, Silver and many others IVs. But the most important of them all is bringing down the Lymes defense through a Biofilm removal protocol.

What is mold toxicity?

Mold is a common fungus that grows in places with a lot of moisture, such as roofs, pipes, and under wood and tile floors and ceilings. Different types of mold are around us all the time, but some are more dangerous than others and certain people are allergic to mold or sensitive to the naturally occurring toxins, called mycotoxins, that mold can emit. When you’re exposed to too much mold, mold that you’re sensitive to, or certain types of mold known to cause health issues, it can lead to a condition called mold toxicity.

What are the symptoms of mold toxicity?

The symptoms of mold issues can be divided into two main categories. Immune reaction to mold, which typically involves allergy-like symptoms such as sinus issues, runny nose, itchy skin and eyes, asthma, shortness of breath, and more. The second type of mold issue is a chemical and inflammatory reaction to mold driven by mycotoxins, which can initiate an inflammatory cytokine-driven response in the body. And as you might already know about chronic inflammation, this can create symptoms that are vague, broad, and very hard to pin down such as:

  • Cognitive difficulties (brain fog, poor memory, anxiety)
  • Pain (especially abdominal pain, but can include muscle pain similar to fibromyalgia)
  • Unexplained weight gain or weight loss
  • Numbness and tingling in extremities or other areas of the body
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Vertigo or dizziness
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Digestive issues (especially limited tolerance to food, persistent bloating)
  • Significant fatigue that interferes with daily activities
  • Changes in mood
  • Excessive thirst and dehydration, bed-wetting in children
  • Symptoms that resemble hormone imbalances (hair loss, rashes)

Symptoms of mycotoxin-induced illness vary and have no pattern, and they are not unique to this illness, which means they can easily be mistaken for something else.

Why are mold issues difficult to diagnose?

 Conventional medicine recognizes that mold can cause allergies but does not recognize that mycotoxins emitted by some species of indoor mold can cause a problem. Doctors unfamiliar with mold and mold treatment may miss one of the main types of mold reactions—the chemical and inflammatory reaction. This is for a few reasons:

  • There is no gold standard in testing for mold
  • There is no standardized treatment protocol or drug for mold toxicity
  • There are very limited human-based studies looking at the connection between mycotoxins and human health
  • The presentation of mold issues is very different among patients.
  • Not everyone exposed to mold mycotoxins will have a reaction to them.
  • One of the biggest challenges with mold is that mycotoxins can cause only some people to launch an inflammatory response.

How do you test for toxic mold exposure?

Testing for mycotoxins is typically the first step and we also recommends a home inspection by a certified mold inspector. The most direct way to test for mold toxicity is a urine test that measures for metabolites of mold and mycotoxins as well as glutathione levels, which can be depleted when you’re exposed to mold.

Mold tests have some major drawbacks, including:

  • False negatives and false positives are common
  • They are not covered by insurance
  • You can’t test all toxins — there are hundreds
  • The levels found on tests don’t necessarily correlate with the severity of symptoms

 What are some of the things you can do to mitigate mold illness?

Eliminate exposure

 Eliminate the sources of the mold from the environment but also eliminate common dietary sources of mold, including grains, coffee, and peanut butter. This will help reduce the overall mold burden on the body.

Address sinus health since molds can colonize the sinuses.

Lower inflammation          

Taking steps to lower inflammation can help bring balance back to an overactive immune response. This means following an anti-inflammatory diet and committing to daily stress management habits.

 Optimize detoxification

Supporting the body’s ability to bind to and eliminate toxins is a key part of healing from mycotoxin exposure. Supplements can be helpful like antioxidants like glutathione and N-acetylcysteine (NAC), charcoal, and bitter greens, which all support the liver.

Long COVID, characterized by lingering symptoms after a COVID-19 infection, is addressed with specialized therapies at Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center. Our approach includes Myers Cocktail, NAD+, Plaquex, and Molecular Hydrogen Therapy, each tailored to alleviate the persistent effects of Long COVID and enhance overall health recovery.

Myers Cocktail

The Myers Cocktail Therapy is a pivotal part of managing Long COVID at Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center. This intravenous therapy delivers a powerful blend of vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system for maximum absorption. Key components include Vitamin C, B Vitamins, Magnesium, and Calcium, which work synergistically to boost the immune system, reduce fatigue, and alleviate other Long COVID symptoms like brain fog and muscle weakness. 

For patients recovering from Long COVID, this therapy provides essential nutrients that may have been depleted during their illness. The direct infusion of these nutrients helps restore energy levels, improve cognitive function, and enhance the body’s natural healing processes. Myers Cocktail Therapy is an integral part of our holistic approach to Long COVID, providing a supportive, nutrient-rich foundation for patients on their path to recovery.

NAD+ Restoration

NAD+ Restoration Therapy is an innovative therapy offered at Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center for managing Long COVID. Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+), a critical molecule in cellular metabolism, tends to decrease with age. Boosting NAD+ levels is vital for supporting health span processes and longevity pathways. This becomes especially important in the context of Long COVID, where cellular energy and metabolic functions may be compromised.

NAD+ plays a pivotal role in numerous metabolic activities, from energy production to DNA maintenance. By increasing NAD+ levels through our restoration therapy, patients can experience enhanced cellular energy, activation of beneficial genes, DNA repair, and optimization of various cellular functions. For individuals recovering from Long COVID, this boost in NAD+ can be instrumental in overcoming fatigue, improving cognitive function, and enhancing overall recovery.

Our NAD+ Restoration Therapy ensures that patients receive a precise dose, tailored to their specific needs, to effectively support their recovery from Long COVID. This therapy is integral to our comprehensive approach, aiming to restore optimal cellular health and function in those affected by Long COVID.

Plaquex

Plaquex Therapy is a key component in the management of Long COVID at Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center. This therapy involves the use of natural phospholipids to improve cellular health and circulation, which can be significantly affected in Long COVID cases. Plaquex helps in restoring the integrity of cellular membranes, thereby enhancing cell function and detoxification processes. Improved circulation, a direct benefit of Plaquex therapy, ensures better oxygen and nutrient delivery to tissues, aiding in the recovery from the lingering effects of COVID-19. 

This therapy is particularly beneficial in addressing fatigue, one of the common symptoms of Long COVID, by improving energy levels at the cellular level. At our wellness center, Plaquex Therapy is administered with precision and care, tailored to the specific health requirements of each Long COVID patient, thereby offering a personalized approach to support their recovery and overall well-being.

Molecular Hydrogen Therapy

Molecular Hydrogen Therapy offers a novel approach to managing Long COVID at Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center. This therapy utilizes hydrogen-rich water or inhalation of hydrogen gas to deliver molecular hydrogen to the body. The therapy has been recognized for its antioxidant properties, reducing oxidative stress and inflammation, which are key factors in Long COVID. Molecular Hydrogen Therapy aids in neutralizing harmful free radicals and supports cellular health, crucial for patients recovering from Long COVID. The therapy is known to improve energy levels, reduce fatigue, and alleviate other persistent symptoms associated with Long COVID. 

Administered under professional supervision, Molecular Hydrogen Therapy forms a part of our comprehensive treatment strategy for Long COVID, aiming to enhance the body’s natural healing processes and provide relief from the ongoing effects of the illness. This innovative therapy underscores our commitment to utilizing advanced, natural methods to support the health and recovery of our Long COVID patients.

Long Haul Covid

About one out of every three people who had COVID develop symptoms of long COVID, defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a group of symptoms that linger for weeks or months after a COVID-19 infection. These long COVID symptoms can cause problems in multiple organs and body systems at once. Even people who had a mild case of the virus can have persistent COVID symptoms that disrupt their daily life.

What are some of the symptoms?

Neurological symptoms:

One in three people with long COVID experience neurological symptoms. These symptoms can linger for weeks or months after the initial COVID-19 infection. As leaders in neurology, our experts treat cognitive problems and issues that affect the nervous system, including:

  • “Brain fog” (difficulty thinking, reasoning or concentrating) after COVID-19
  • Eye issues, including blurry vision or double vision
  • Headaches
  • Loss of taste and loss of smell (parosmia)
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)

Cardiovascular symptoms:

Severe COVID-19 infections can cause long-term heart damage. But people who had mild COVID symptoms can also have recurring or chronic heart and vascular problems. These include:

  • Blood clots and vein (vascular) damage
  • Chest pain
  • Dizziness when standing up (orthostatic hypotension)
  • Fast-beating or pounding heart (heart palpitations)
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

Respiratory symptoms:

Long COVID can cause persistent problems with the lungs and oxygen levels in the body. Many people with long COVID experience lingering:

  • Cough
  • Exhaustion after little exertion
  • Fatigue
  • Hypoxia (low levels of oxygen in tissues throughout the body)
  • Shortness of breath

 Mental health symptoms:

A range of psychological problems can occur after a COVID-19 infection. These issues can result from the virus itself or from the stressful experience of being treated for a serious illness. They may also come with the challenges of living with long-term physical symptoms. Mental health effects of long COVID include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia and other sleep disturbances
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

The practitioners of Orthomolecular Nutrition and Wellness are uniquely qualified to diagnose, manage and treat symptoms of long COVID. We use a full spectrum of micronutrients given by IV such as NAD+, high dose vitamin C and other modalities to help the body regulate the immune response, inflammation and heal on a cellular level.  There is no need to continue to suffer.  Call to set up an appointment today.
