Back pain relief in Beverly Hills

Holistic Doctor in Beverly Hills

Spine conditions typically manifest themselves through low back pain, neck pain, hip pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, and other musculoskeletal complaints. Low back pain, for example, is the most common form of physical disability and is the second leading cause of work absenteeism. An estimated 80 percent of all Americans will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. If you require treatment for back pain, our holistic doctor in Beverly Hills can help you regain your health, energy, and life with a premier blend of Eastern and Western natural healing techniques.

Our approach to your treatment revolves around paying attention to all the details of the body, not to just the problematic part. Treatment for any neck, back, and spinal condition is recommended as soon as possible to minimize the danger of further aggravation. Our treatment programs are designed to support your strengths and uncover your weaknesses to develop a plan to reach your full potential physically, energetically, and emotionally. Our FDA-approved low level laser therapy (LLLT) unit combined with The 3 Dimension Program provides accelerated relief for back pain. This non-invasive, new technology is applied using a targeted super pulsed laser light. In addition to back pain, laser therapy can also be used by our holistic doctor in Beverly Hills to help resolve acute/chronic pain, carpal tunnel, arthritis pain, tennis elbow, muscle strain, bursitis, tendinitis, and other injuries.

At The Beverly Hills Wellness Clinic, we view the person as a sum of all the body parts. For example, we will not treat just the back pain as a back problem, but we will address other aspects of the body which have a correlation. This allows us to treat the whole body, not just the problematic part. We can treat the problem at the core, not just take away the symptoms of it. Call our holistic doctor in Beverly Hills today if you have any questions regarding our services for back pain relief, or to schedule an appointment.

Patient with Multiple Sclerosis Improves: A Case Study & Results

Multiple Sclerosis (Autoimmune Disorder)2.5 million people around the world suffer from Multiple Sclerosis & more than 400,000 of those people are in the United States.  Each week about 200 new cases are diagnosed in the US alone.

MS is a progressive & chronic disease involving damage to the sheaths of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, whose symptoms may include impairment of speech, muscular coordination, blurred vision, numbness, and severe fatigue.

Here is a recent study of a patient with multiple sclerosis that will interest you.


A Case Study & Results:

Clinical Features:

A 58-year-old female confined to a wheel chair presented for integrative care with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. An anteriorposterior lower cervical x-ray displayed 16.2mm left head translation (ideal is 0mm). Paraspinal thermography revealed a significant asymmetry in the cervical region with moderate asymmetry at C1 and C5 and severe asymmetry at C2-C4. Spirometry revealed a peak expiratory lung flow volume of 200 L/min and a forced expiratory lung volume of 1.48 L. Grip strength assessment revealed a maximum left-hand grip strength of 2.8 lbs and a maximum right-hand grip strength of 3.0 lbs.

 

Intervention & Outcome:

The patient received integrative technique protocols. Follow-up examination revealed that the patient achieved a correction of left head translation of 17.0mm from 16.2mm to -0.8mm; an improvement in peak expiratory flow volume of 27 L/min from 200 L/min to 227 L/min; an improvement in forced expiratory lung volume of 0.18 L from 1.48 L to 1.66 L; an improvement in left-hand grip strength of 9.2 lbs from 2.8 lbs to 12 lbs and in right-hand grip strength of 5 lbs from 3.0 lbs to 8.0 lbs.
Improvements in Lung Function, Grip Strength and Dysautonomia

 

Conclusions:

Reducing the nerve interference in the spine improved posture with an improvement in respiratory function, dysautonomia, and grip strength.
Dr. Aristotle’s Comment:

The integration of Eastern and Western healing techniques is a powerful approach. When you also reduce nerve interference you allow your body to participate in the healing response.

This was one of the key elements in my own healing from total paralysis in a wheelchair to walking again. “The power that made the body, heals the body.”

Pesticide Exposure & Lou Gehrig’s Disease in Beverly Hills

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosPesticide Lou Gehrig's Disease.is (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a neurodegenerative disease affecting motor neurons and disabling voluntary control of muscles. 90-95 percent of cases have unknown etiology. Environmental exposures have been suspected to be a potential cause.

By comparing the environmental toxin exposure of 101 ALS patients to 110 comparable healthy control individuals, researchers from the University of Michigan demonstrated that people with persistent exposure to environmental pollutants such as organochlorine pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls, and brominated flame retardants are at 2-3 times greater odds of having ALS than those who are not exposed.

As animals can accumulate and concentrate these toxins in their bodies with contaminated food and water intake, meat and dairy products can serve as major sources of these toxins.

Dr. Aristotle’s Comment:
We’ve discussed environmental exposures and the crucial need for proper elimination of toxins from the body. The long term effects oPesticide Lou Gehrig's Diseasen our health and ability to heal from disease are now being noticed in the literature. Remember, before starting any detoxification program you need to strengthen the biochemistry of your body.

As you know I highly recommend the Cardio-Ion laboratory tests to help determine what strengths and weaknesses exist in the body. This way you can be proactive in your healing while staying on target with your nutrition.

I’m At A Fork In The Road. What Should I Do?

Many patients suffering from a long term health problem walk the “no” results road but still have a sense of not giving up.

Eventually, some find that path and end up in our Beverly Hills Wellness Center office. Many call it luck, coincidence, or some sort of intuition that guided them in a particular direction. How intuition works is being studied and can be seen in a paper: Intuitive decision making as a gradual process: investigating semantic intuition‐based and priming‐based decisions with fMRI.” Link Here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4834943/

When it comes to our health we may arrive at a serious fork in the road. We are confused and can’t decide which intuitive message is the right one. We feel stuck and can’t move forward!

We may need help connecting with that inner process to make a decision.

In Asian medicine this is a weakness in the Fire element. Supporting this element with Fire Element homeopathy is an effective approach to help balance that mind body connection in these types of situations.
