WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT

HOW TO FINALLY END YOUR FIBROMYALGIA NIGHTMARE!

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT FROM EVERY OTHER DOCTOR THAT YOU HAVE SEEN?

We treat you metabolically and neurologically!

You are on this website because you or someone you love is suffering from FIBROMYALGIA.

I am here to tell you that……

NO STONE IS LEFT UNTURNED TO DETERMINE THE EXACT CAUSE OF YOUR FIBROMYALGIA!

I WILL GUARANTEE YOU THAT NO ONE HAS TOLD YOU WHAT I AM ABOUT TO TELL YOU…….

I am going to address:

#1: What makes my program unique?

#2: How I successfully treat fibromyalgia.

WHAT MAKES MY PROGRAM UNIQUE?

First, I treat you not your diagnosis.  See Fibromyalgia is a diagnosis, it does not tell us what caused your condition, it labels your symptoms.  In our country we love labels. Once we label you, you get a treatment for that label.  The trouble with that is if I lined up 20 people diagnosed with fibromyalgia all with similar symptoms, all may have gotten their symptoms through different causes.

It is far easier to diagnose and label you and than treat the disorder than it is to ask WHY YOU HAVE THESE SYMPTOMS or WHAT’S THE CAUSE OF THE FIBROMYALGIA. (Don’t you ask yourself “But why do I have fibro” or “What is the cause”?)

Think about it this way, if your foot hurt, a doctor could diagnose you with foot pain and give you a pain killer. That might work for a while. And everyone else that comes in with foot pain gets the same diagnosis and treatment. They don’t even have to evaluate you because the doctor treats all foot pain the same.

Aren’t there a lot of reasons you might have foot pain?

Maybe you kicked something and sprained or broke your foot, maybe you have a splinter in your foot, maybe your shoes are too tight, maybe you have fallen arches, maybe there is a bone spur, maybe you have pain radiating into your foot, maybe there is a pebble in your shoe, etc. I think you get the idea!

What makes my office different is that I don’t want to treat your diagnosis! I want to find out what CAUSED YOU to have your signs & symptoms, what is the CAUSE of YOUR fibromyalgia.

Your cause is going to be different from the other 20 people. Your life has been different, stresses have been different, your nutrition has been different, your traumas have been different, so YOUR CAUSES will be different and so will be the TREATMENT that gets you better!

HOW DO I SUCCESSFULLY TREAT FIBROMYALGIA?

By using specific metabolic and neurological protocols!

What you may not have been told to this point is that fibromyalgia is not a muscle problem. It is a neurologic and metabolic problem. The research is proving this. The group of doctors that I consult and I have been screaming this for years. Research is now finally proving this.

So to find out the cause or causes of your fibromyalgia we have to do comprehensive neurologic and metabolic testing. Some of the testing I perform includes:

Comprehensive Neurological Testing

Comprehensive Metabolic Testing

I: Sensitivity Testing: to determine if you have a sensitivity to gluten (wheat, rye, oats, and barley), milk, eggs, yeast, and soy. If you are sensitive to ANY of these food groups, it could be making your fibromyalgia worse as it will increase inflammation in your brain and throughout your body!

Here are some of the symptoms of these sensitivities:

Chronic pain or fatigue

Frequent indigestion

Bloated after eating

Frequent loose bowel movements

Constipation

Mouth ulcers or sores

Vomit often

The only way to find out of you are suffering from any of these sensitivities is the run the test.

II. Complete Blood Panels

By using specific blood tests such as:

#1: A thyroid panel

#2: A complete metabolic panel (CMP)

#3: A lipid panel

#4: A CBC (complete blood chemistry with auto differential)

We can assess your thyroid, adrenal glands, liver, kidneys, red/white blood cells and gut function with the above lab tests. All can be affected with chronic health conditions. By addressing any problems with your thyroid, adrenal glands, blood chemistry, or gut function, we can help you to heal faster. The CMP also allows us to check your blood glucose levels since glucose and oxygen are needed by the brain to function properly.

Glucose values (12 hour fasting):

Normal: 85-99

Hypoglycemic: 84 or less

Insulin resistance/pre-diabetes: 100-126

Diabetes: 127 or higher

The 4 priorites are:

1) Anemia

2) Blood sugar/ASI

3) GI/liver

4) Fatty acid metabolism

III: Adrenal Stress Index (ASI) :

You can test the adrenal glands with a test called an Adrenal Stress Index. This is a salivary test much like DNA testing. The adrenal glands sit right above the kidneys and they are your “stress” organs meaning that they react to stress. If the patient has been or are currently under stress, this test is a must!

IF YOU SUFFER FROM INSOMNIA AND/OR DIABETES, THIS TEST IS A MUST! IT WILL MEASURE THEIR CORTISOL LEVELS.

IV. Immune Panels—EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!:

Your fibromyalgia could be caused by an auto immune condition. Your immune system could be attacking your brain and nervous system. This is why the immune panels are so important.

There are two parts to the immune system, TH1 and TH2.

IL- 2 and TNF-alpha = TH1

TH1 is T-cells. T-cells are the army that attacks and cleans up afterword. (Helper T-cells, Suppressor T-cells, NKC, regulatory T-cells, and macrophages.

IL-4 and IL-10 = TH2

TH2 is B-cells. B-cells make anti-bodies. They tell T-cells what to kill. If the testing comes back with a high B-cell count, the patient is TH2 dominant.

T and B Lymphocyte & Natural Killer Cell Panel

IL-2 ,TNF-alpha, IL-4, IL-10

Natural Killer Cell Activity

I will want to determine if there is an active antigen or dysregulation causing your condition.

Active antigens are parasites, bacteria, virus, mold, yeast, fungi, protozoan, foods, chemicals, and heavy metals.

The best indicator for an active antigen as the cause of the patient’s abnormal dominance is the “Helper/Suppresor” ratio on the T & B cell panel. (also called “CD4:CD8” ratio).

The closer to 2.5 the ratio is (or if above that), the more likely it is that you’re dealing with an antigen.

If the ratio is below 1.2, then you are most likely dealing with a dysregulation problem.

V. Intestinal Permeability: This test is used to determine if the patient suffers from leaky gut syndrome (LGS).

LGS or Leaky gut syndrome describes a condition of altered or damaged bowel lining, caused by antibiotics, toxins, poor diet, parasites or infection can lead to increased permeability of the gut wall to toxins, microbes, undigested food, waste or larger than normal macromolecules. It has been proposed that these substances affect the body directly, while others postulate an immune reaction to these substances.

VI. HORMONE PANELS: We can check hormone panels to determine if the patient suffers from low testosterone in males or low estrogen/progesterone levels in females. Symptoms related to decreased hormone levels may include depression, fatigue, mental fogginess, mood swings, hot flashes, sweating attacks, weight gain, and decreased physical stamina.

Other tests may need to be performed but I think you can see that I am thorough in the looking for a cause. When you compare what you’ve read so far to what tests you have had done you might start to understand why you haven’t found your cause!

Once we have run the necessary tests to determine the cause of your specific condition, we can successfully treat you via proper neurologic and all natural nutritional protocols. Some of the treatments might include:

#1: Oxygen therapy: Oxygen is fuel for your brain and nervous system. Your brain and nervous system need two things to survive…..fuel and activation. Fuel comes in the form of OXYGEN AND GLUCOSE. By using oxygen, we will help you heal faster. By using exercise with oxygen therapy (EWOT), we can increase firing to brain. By increasing firing of brain, we help MANY chronic conditions.

#2: Brain-Based Therapy (BBT): We use specific brain-based therapy such as:

Vibration Therapy: Vibration fires the back part of the brain called the cerebellum. One of the functions of the cerebellum is control of the spinal muscle.

We may also use auditory, visual, olfactory, and caloric stimulation to increase firing of brain.

Eye Lights Therapy:

Non-surgical Spinal Decompression: NSSD creates a negative disc pressure and helps to remove pressure off of the nerve. It also provides a slow stretch of the muscles which fires up the spinal cord to increase firing of brain.

Interactive Metronome: Computer-based program that uses visual, auditory and motor stimulation to increase firing of the brain. (www.interactivemetronome.com)

Ask yourself the following questions:

#1: How has your fibromyalgia affected your relationships, finances, family, or other activities?

#2: What has it cost you in time, money, happiness, sleep?

#3: Where do you picture yourself in the next one to five years if this problem is not taken care of soon?

#4: What is it worth to you if we could improve your condition?

Finally, share this information with a family member or friend.
