Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
HBOT is an FDA-cleared device using pressure to force more oxygen into the body than can normally be brought in through breathing room air or a 100% pure oxygen mask. This free dissolved oxygen permeates the bloodstream and tissues providing nature’s most important nutrient for rejuvenation and healthy tissue function. Oxygen helps to heal tissue by stimulating stem cells, improving circulation, forming new blood vessels, and reducing inflammation. It is particularly important in hypoxic (low oxygen) and ischemic (poor blood flow) conditions such as fibromyalgia, muscle pain from tightness, injury or contracture, and for the repair and recovery of sprains, tears, and fractures.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation with Neuronavigation Technology
TMS is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. It is FDA-approved and is widely tested participating in over 60 clinical trials worldwide. TMS can now be performed with neurosurgery precision. The neuronagivation technology allows us to precisely target brain cell clusters down to a few millimeters for treatment. dTMS allows patients to reach complete remission from their depression in 37% of cases and significant symptom relief in 58% of the cases. It can be used as a stand alone treatment but is often used as part of comprehensive mental health treatment program.
NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a naturally existing coenzyme derived from niacin (vitamin B3) used for cellular energy production. It has gained considerable attention in the research and media for its role in the sirtuin pathway (a pro-longevity pathway) and its ability to increase the lifespan of rodents. NAD levels are depleted during the aging process, substance abuse, and chronic disease. In particular, neurological, mental health, and mitochondrial disease have demonstrated reduced levels of NAD and downregulation of the pro-longevity sirtuin pathway. Research has shown, NAD administration raises serum and cellular NAD levels and upregulates the sirtuin pathway. Click here to learn more about NAD IV therapy.
Glutathione is one of the bodies’ most robust antioxidants that is produced in the liver. Glutathione levels can be depleted if there is a production problem (liver disease) or if the system is overconsuming the antioxidant faster than it can be replaced. It is used most commonly for neurological and mental health disorders. The Michael J. Fox Foundation has reported on the agent for its effects in Parkinson’s disease, which is one of its most well known uses. In addition, it is used during colds, flu’s, and other forms of upper respiratory infections due to its ability to reduce mucus chest congestion.
Bioidentical hormones are biologically identical to the native hormones of the human body. BHRT remains one of the most underutilized therapies in neurology and mental health care. The agents have the ability to improve energy levels, sleep, mental clarity, anxiety, and depression. There is an ample amount of research indicating safety and effectiveness of hormones for these indications. Youthful hormone levels are thought to be one of the important strategies to maintain vitality throughout a lifespan.

Neurofeedback (or Electroencephalogram (EEG) Biofeedback) is a cognitive exercise that teaches our brain how to naturally regulate its activity and brainwaves to help individuals develop mental coping skills and resiliency. Neurofeedback has been found effective in childhood, as young as 18 months of age, through adulthood benefiting people well into their 90’s. Common improvements include insomnia, anxiety, difficulty with focus and concentration, trauma history, and depressive symptoms (i.e. mental dullness, low motivation, fatigue, hypersomnia). It has also been used successfully to treat those with brain injury (TBI), eating disorders, and substance abuse. Healthy individuals can partake in Neurofeedback to optimize mental performance, sports performance, or to help them to enhance a general sense of ease and calmness.

Intranasal Therapies enhanced delivery to the brain
One of the unique challenges in medicine is delivering nutrients and medications to the brain because of the blood-brain barrier (BBB). By design the BBB exists to keep toxic chemicals away from one of our most vital organs. However, a side effect of this important shield is to keep out potentially helpful agents. Intranasal therapies, such as hormones and other small agents, have the ability to be absorbed through small blood vessels in the nose, which have only a short distance to travel to the brain. These agents are particularly useful for conditions such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, substance abuse/addiction disorders, concussion/traumatic brain injury (TBI), dementia/alzheimers, and parkinsons.
