Alternative Therapies

The human body is complex and medical science remains in its infancy in exploring the intricacies of biologic systems. While we have been trained in the strict scientific pursuits of Western Medicine, there remains the possibility that there are broad areas of human biology that we have no formal knowledge of at this time. Many Non-Western societies have developed alternative medical systems that have completely different world views about the human body. We believe it is important to keep an open mind about these approaches. Accordingly we explore, for experimental interest, avenues that are out of the realm of modern Western Medicine. We do not know their truth or their ultimate value to treating patients, but we believe there have been sufficient anecdotal reports that these approaches warrant further study.

At present in our facility, the primary non traditional approaches under study and investigation include:

  • Acupuncture Therapy
  • Acupuncture Therapy with traditional energy where healing force of the therapist affects the patient's recovery
  • Acupuncture with the five phases
  • Auricular Therapy
  • Electro dermal Screening
  • Bio Terrain assessment
  • Substances found in nature, such as herbs, foods, and vitamins
  • Bio-electromagnetic based therapies such as pulsed fields, magnetic fields, alternating-current or direct-current fields
  • Bio-stimulation with low energy level lasers

All investigation is based upon individualized needs and dependent on the presenting symptoms. All candidates acknowledge the full understanding of the experimental nature of these investigational modalities and that all non conventional therapy has no guarantee as to the outcome with funding solely patient based.
