Oxygen Therapy can be one of the most powerful sources of healing pertaining to the most difficult to treat medical conditions. Have you ever wondered, why one of the first things an ambulance paramedic will do in an emergency situation, is to put someone on oxygen? It is because oxygen not only saves lives but heals damaged tissues. Diabetics for example, have poor circulation due to high glucose that damages the vascular system. Poor circulation leads to less oxygen and eventually in very progressed cases leads to gangrene and amputation of the lower extremities.

How We Use Oxygen In Our Practice

In most cases, we utilize oxygen in conjunction with Brain Based Therapy. Brain Based Therapy is a new technology that was developed by Frederick Carrick D.C., Ph. D (brain research). Chiropractic neurologist Michael Johnson then further developed these techniques training Dr. Kit Langstroth D.C. and other chiropractors in the U.S. to help many very difficult to treat health conditions we see today.

What Can Brain Based Therapy Treat?

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Pain
  • Dizziness, Vertigo and Balance Disorders
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Sleeping Disorders
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Irregular Hear Beat or Heart Palpitations
  • Sensitivity to Light
  • Sensitivity to Sound
  • Easily Excited or Stressed
  • Many times you will have a combination of the above symptoms
  • And many more conditions

What Causes These Symptoms?

It all starts in the Brain. The brain is like a computer which controls pain perception and all organ function. If you stress the brain out too much, it will malfunction. Have you ever had too many applications open on your computer which caused your computer to freeze up? By making your computer think too hard, or asking it to do too much too fast, it will literally shut down or stop working. So how does this apply to your brain. Severe emotional stress or physical and emotional abuse can all cause your brain to short circuit. If you have metabolic issues like hypothyroidism, blood sugar imbalances (both high or low), anemia, auto-immune, sleep apnea, or anything depriving the brain of an adequate oxygen supply, you will often develop many of the above conditions. Ultimately, one side of the brain becomes over active and one side becomes under active leading to an over excited mecencephalon - part of the mid-brain (See Diagram). When the mecencephalon becomes over excited it leads many health problems noted above.

How We Treat These Conditions

Step One: We consult with our patients to discuss current complaints, what has been done in the past (most being a plethora of medications given, only to see a gradual decline in health) and a health history.

Step Two: A special examination must be performed that finds out which side of the brain is under-firing. These are completely pain free, easy to perform and similar to what a police officer would give to a drunk driver.

Step Three:  Order blood work to evaluate what underlying conditions are contributing to your problem. NOTE: Most blood work can be done for a relatively low cost to you.

Step Four: Once all findings are obtained we put you on a course of treatment to include

  • Oxygen Therapy
  • Gentle manipulation to one side of the body only, to stimulate the under-firing side of the brain
  • Vibration therapy
  • Eye exercises
  • Smell therapy
  • Balance exercises
  • Nutritional protocols
