Noteworthy Treatments for Addiction

When someone can’t control the urge to take drugs, even when they know how bad it is for them, this is called an addiction. Often, as a person starts or tries a new drug, they don’t plan to get addicted. People commonly believe they will be able control how often they take them. However, drugs change the brain and can quickly take over someone’s life.

Addiction is a chronic recurring illness that can cause damage to the organs, and in particular, the brain. Addiction involves the mesolimbic dopamine system which includes the surveillance-oriented brainstem, the emotional limbic system, and the frontal cerebral cortex.

Treatment Options

At New Life Medical Group, the treatment protocol for addiction is a combination of Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), IV therapy, supplements and if needed, cell therapy.

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been used for many different types of brain damage, including but not limited to concussions, PTSD, and strokes.  It is also used as an adjuvant therapy for addiction.
  • IV Therapy: IV Therapy can deliver fluids and liquid vitamins and medications directly into a vein. This delivers them quickly throughout the body.
  • Supplements
  • Stem Cell Therapy: Stem Cell Therapy is a regenerative medicine that uses some of your own body’s tissue to help heal disease and injury. In combination with traditional procedures and treatments, regenerative medicine has had an astonishing success rate in healing bone, joint, soft tissue, and muscle and nerve injuries.

Benefits of NLMG Treatment

NLMG treatment protocol is meant to help patients quickly overcome the withdrawal symptoms and start the healing process. It is not a substitute for group or individual therapy and lifestyle changes. With that said, some noteworthy benefits of NLMG treatment include:

  • In narcotic addiction and dependency, patients are able to come off their drugs in days to a week with minimal withdrawals and preservation of organs (Epifanova NM Anesteziol Reanimatol 1995, May-Jun(3):34-9S).
  • Some of the organ damage to the liver and brain, caused by alcohol, can be reversed with treatment options offered at NLMG.
  • Patients with a nicotine addiction may also benefit from these treatments. The effects of carbon monoxide associated with smoking can make it more difficult to quit a nicotine addiction. After a person quits smoking, it takes 3-4 days for the carbon monoxide level to decrease to normal levels. HBOT can eliminate the carbon monoxide in hours and help bypass the difficult 3-4 days after quitting smoking. In addition, HBOT can be used to reverse some of the effects of chronic carbon monoxide poisoning that result in changes in the circulatory system.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Lyme Disease

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is transmitted to humans through an infected tick and is most often caused by the bacterium, borrelia burgdorfern (Bb spirochete). In the United States, the black-legged tick (Ixodes Scapularis) and the western black-legged tick (Ixodes pacificans) are the most common ticks to infect humans. Other ticks that have been found to be infected with the Bb spirochete bacteria are the wood rat tick (Ixodes neotomae) and the rabbit tick (Haemaphysolis porispalastris).

Symptoms of Lyme Disease

The first symptom of Lyme disease is a local rash (erythema migrans), but it is not always present and it can be overlooked. In the EARLY PHASE (inflammatory phase,) flu-like symptoms, headaches, stiff neck, mild fever, chills, muscles aches and fatigue are seen. These symptoms are very non-specific and mimic other diseases. Lyme disease needs to be considered as a possibility if the flu-like symptoms persist over weeks. The LATE PHASE (intracellular phase) of Lyme disease occurs when the bacterium is in the organ (skin, muscles, eyes, heart, brain, etc.). Symptoms in this phase might include neurological dysfunction, cognitive disorders, sleep abnormalities, muscles aches, cardiac problems, etc. These late symptoms also imitate other illness such as fibromyalgia. These characteristics of Lyme disease have given rise to the term “great imitator” to describe this disease process.

What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has the extraordinary ability to improve your quality of life when standard medicine is simply not working or as a supplement to traditional medicine. Simple, effective and lifesaving, HBOT can be your answer to recovery. New Life Medical Group is one of the only freestanding facilities that has the matchless ability to provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy in conjunction with other treatments for a more cohesive, effective and long-term result. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the only non-hormonal treatment approved by the FDA for biologically repairing and regenerating human tissue.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Lyme Disease

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy works by driving oxygen into infected cells, thereby creating a rich environment of oxygen that is not suitable to the Bb spirochete. While at the Texas A&M University, William Fife, Ph.D., treated Lyme disease with HBOT at 2.36ATA (atmospheres absolute). Of 91 patients with Lyme disease, 85% of those treated showed significant improvement. A Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction during hyperbaric oxygen therapy and/or while on antibiotics is a sign that the Bb spirochete is being killed. As with all patients facing a serious illness, Lyme disease patients have learned that they need to be informed about treatment options. Especially if standard antibiotic treatment has not helped sufficiently, patients should explore alternative options.

5 Reasons You Need To Try Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

5 Reasons You Need To Try Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a cutting edge form of therapy that promotes natural healing. This non-invasive treatment method has proven to be beneficial for many different conditions, and is the only non-hormonal treatment that is FDA approved for regenerating human tissue. Candidates for oxygen therapy enjoy easy and painless treatment that relieves symptoms of inflammation, infection, aging, decompression sickness, gangrene, and more.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a form of oxygen therapy that utilizes pure oxygen and atmospheric pressure changes. While this may sound intense, the process is simple (and the experience is soothing!). A patient relaxes in a sealed chamber with a large window that lets them see outside of the chamber. The atmospheric pressure in the chamber is gradually increased while 100% pure oxygen floods the chamber. The patient may experience subtle changes in breathing rhythm, but most people report a peaceful, almost Zen-like experience during their treatments. Read on to discover the top benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Restorative

Hyperbaric therapy can be instrumental in restoring a patient’s body to its healthy state after an accident or physical trauma. Patients injured in car accidents and other incidents find relief from the pain and inflammation associated with accident-related injuries. The therapy can also help patients fighting bacterial infections.

Regenerative

Hyperbaric treatments can offer long-term, regenerative results for patients with certain conditions. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is sometimes accompanied by stem cell therapy because the results can be similar: the oxygen rich environment promotes the body’s natural regenerative process by increasing stem cell production. This can help damaged tissues heal.

Researched

Research related to hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been ongoing for decades, and continues to advance as it gains recognition by the international medical community. Although the research conducted on the performance of hyperbaric chambers varies between different hyperbaric chamber brands, solid data has been gathered to confirm the effectiveness of treatment for a diverse range of conditions, including inflammation from injuries, thermal burns, decompression sickness in divers, diabetic wounds and other wounds that won’t heal, carbon monoxide poisoning, and others.

Relaxing

Hyperbaric treatment is as gentle as it is effective, which is why patients with mild ailments take to the chamber as well as those with serious conditions. Patients suffering from chronic pain find relief from oxygen therapy, and also find the process soothing and even meditative. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy also helps men and women who are looking for a non-surgical anti-aging solution. Ongoing hyperbaric treatments can provide similar anti-aging benefits as harsh injectables, such as Botox. The difference between the believability of the results (and the price tag!) falls in favor of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Safe and Realistic

Hyperbaric chambers are only operated by licensed technicians. These state of the art chambers and their accompanying software require in-depth knowledge of the machine and its effects, so patients can relax in the chamber knowing they’re in good hands. The practical benefits of hyperbaric oxygen treatment include affordability (the session costs for hyperbaric therapy are far less than other advanced medical treatments), convenience (patients only need to sit and relax in the chamber for the treatment to be effective), and a minimal time commitment (sessions typically last up to an hour, sometimes less).
