Services for Senior Citizens

BEMER

Do you suffer from issues such as joint pain/stiffness (including Rheumatoid Arthritis), low energy/fatigue, digestive problems, or general brain fog? If so it’s very likely that your body’s circulatory system is not functioning properly.  The circulatory system includes our heart, arteries and veins which allow our body to regulate where the blood and nutrients in our body goes.  With poor circulation parts of the body become starved for the fuel they need to do their job and stay healthy often causing disease or dysfunction to develop.

Luckily, BEMER is one of the best and easiest ways you can help heal your circulatory system and your whole body.  BEMER is a form of PEMF therapy which sends a natural electromagnetic signal into the body in order to increase the oxygenation of the blood and improve overall circulation.  In a 2015 double-blind study of people with chronic pain conditions such as Arthritis it was found that BEMER provided significant relief in pain symptoms when compared to a placebo.  In addition to being effective at reducing pain from chronic or acute injuries, one of BEMER’s biggest selling point is the significant boost in natural energy that can keep you awake and alert without the ups and down of caffeine.

IV Therapy

IV Therapy - Natural Medicine Center Lakeland FL Florida Holistic Functional Vitamins Amino Acids Minerals Nutrients Bloodstream Cancer Fatigue

IV Micronutrient Therapy is an infusion of natural supplements into the blood stream in order to combat nutritional deficiencies as well as give a significant boost to a person’s mood, energy levels, and immune system.  As opposed to regular supplements, the infusion stays in the body for a much longer (around 3-4 weeks) and the high dose produces much more significant effects.  In addition to providing major relief to those suffering from chronic conditions, IV therapy can help to ward off or recover from an illness.  At the Natural Medicine Center we offer a variety of infusions to meet your specific needs and can custom make infusions for what your body needs based on your lab tests.

Supplements

Doctor’s will always stress the importance of keeping up with prescribed medication, but they often don’t tell you that

diet and lifestyle changes including supplements can sometimes eliminate the problem completely.  Nearly half of all senior citizens’ in America are on five or more medications for conditions that in many cases are treatable.  Even worse is that many elderly will have long lists of medications with extensive instructions on when to take them and warnings against interactions with other drugs.  Why take handfuls of harmful medications every day when you can take natural supplements that support your body’s natural processes and produce minimal to no side effects?

At the Natural Medicine Center we carry a wide range of natural supplements to meet anyone’s needs. From general wellness Vitamin’s, sleep support from Melatonin, digestive support from probiotics, natural anti-inflammatory supplements and more.  The supplements that we carry come from reputable pharmaceutical sources which are highly tested and more pure and effective than what is usually found in the supermarkets.  In addition to our traditional supplements, we also offer Chinese herbals of all types through the company Evergreen herbs.

Neurofeedback

It’s no secret that as we grow older our brains become more rigid and set in their ways, often making it difficult for us to make changes or learn new things.  Neurofeedback is a brain training service that can slow down the natural decline of mental faculties and help improve areas such as memory, focus, sleep, and more.  At the Natural Medicine Center we use Neuroptimal neurofeedback due to its holistic and safe nature with zero reported side effects.

In a session of Neuroptimal neurofeedback the client simply sits back as relaxing music and visuals play on a computer. A few un-invasive sensors will read your live brain activity and feed the activity back to the client.  Through this relaxing and therapeutic process the brain is able to see how it is functioning and improve itself.  Neuroptimal neurofeedback can help you develop the flexibility and resiliency to face each new day with a fresh start. Neurofeedback has been proven effective in treating depression, anxiety and neurological disorders.

Mental Health and Medication Counseling

As a holistic practitioner Dr. Catherine assess and treats her patients mentally and physically, this means that each patient is given personal attention and not merely seen as their diagnosis.  A wellness consultation with Dr. Catherine involves half an hour or 1 hour to go over your medical history, presenting/pressing problems, and finally developing a treatment plan.  With her degree in psychpharmacology Dr. Catherine is well versed in the effects of different medications and helps her patients to downsize their prescriptions in favor of natural alternatives that are beneficial for the body.

When seeing patients Dr. Catherine aims to both resolve existing issues as well as help her clients learn how to take care of their health to stay healthy for the future.  In addition to expertly managing the medications of her patients, Dr. Catherine offers counseling so that she can get to the root of a patient’s issue and teach them positive coping strategies that they can use in the future.  If you’ve ever felt unsatisfied or unsure about the prescription or treatment plan your doctor has advised, you are fully within your rights as a patient to schedule an appointment with Dr. Catherine for a second opinion.

Services for College Students

The Natural Medicine Center of Lakeland

 

BEMER  

Replace the ups and downs of constant coffee runs and the caffeine jitters for natural energy medicine.  BEMER is a form of PEMF therapy which sends natural electromagnetic signals into the body which increase energy and improve circulation.  While anyone can and should benefit from BEMER, athletes should be especially interested in this service as it boosts the body’s natural healing abilities including recovering from tough work out sessions and minor injuries.  In fact, local professional trainers and coaches have seen the value in BEMER and use the device themselves and recommend it to their clients and athletes.

 

IV Therapy

Often referred to as “the hangover cure” IV therapy is an infusion of natural supplements such as Vitamin C, the B vitamins, and calcium directly in the blood stream.  By infusing these supplements instead of taking them orally the body is able to absorb more of the active ingredients and keep them in longer.

While this service is primarily used to help those suffering from nutritional deficiencies for various reasons, IV infusions are beneficial for anyone as they are essentially the ultimate multivitamin.  Those who receive an infusion can expect a significant increase in energy and positive mood that lasts for 3-4 weeks.  Take advantage of this service before a hectic period such as mid-terms, finals, or training for an upcoming sporting event to help you perform to the best of your ability

 

Neurofeedback  

Even the smartest students can be held back tremendously by issues such as anxiety, stress, and random distracting thoughts.  Neurofeedback is a brain training service which can help with all of these issues and more.  In a session of Neuroptimal neurofeedback all a client experiences is half an hour of relaxing visuals and music while simple non-invasive sensors monitor their brain activity.  Throughout the session skips in the music will trigger whenever specific patterns of brain wave activity are detected.  These simple skips provide the brain with a mirror that reflects its activity back allowing the brain to learn from itself like never before.  While many neurofeedback devices are exclusively for those with diagnosed mental conditions, our system is designed to bring greater mental balance and relief from stress/anxiety to anyone who is hooked up.

 

Nutritional Counseling and Lab Testing  

College is especially tough on students’ stomachs.  From low quality cafeteria food, cheap fast food and ramen, and skipped meals on the way to class it seems very few students are getting the proper amount and type of food that their body needs.  While some students may blame their fatigue and exhaustion on homework, social life obligations, and Netflix binging (which are all very real problems) the fact is that the majority of Americans including students are not operating at our full capacity due to poor diet and nutrition.

At our clinic we can also perform lab testing of food sensitivities in order to find out what foods are not agreeing with your body or digestive system. As part of our dedication to promoting healthy and enjoyable living we host a local produce stand in front of our clinic every Friday from 1-4. If you are interested in making a change to your diet and lifestyle for the better, make an appointment with our holistic practitioner Dr. Catherine Onuoha.

Glutathione: “The Mother of All Antioxidants”

 

Glutathione: “The Mother of All Antioxidants”

Glutathione (reduced glutathione, GSH) endogenous antioxidant molecule. Skeletal formula.

 

Glutathione is a natural antioxidant found in our foods and our liver that is made up of three different amino acids: Glycine, L-Cysteine, and L-Glutamate.  Glutathione is always present in our bodies at low levels to help protect our cells from natural deterioration and free radicals, however, recent research has been done showing the importance and value of supplementing your diet with additional glutathione.

Supplementing with Glutathione has been found to have a positive effect on a number of different conditions such as glaucoma, hepatitis, asthma, cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue, and more.  Glutathione is also good for general health as it helps to cleanse and detox the liver.  Glutathione is effective in so many different areas because it is involved in various chemical processes in the body which support tissue recovery and produce proteins for the immune system.

Glutathione can be produced through dietary consumption, oral supplement, injection or infusion.  While foods high in glutathione such as spinach, okra, and avocados as well as glutathione supplements can be effective for certain conditions, much like vitamin C only a small amount of glutathione is actually absorbed orally by the body.  (With certain substances such as Glutathione and Vitamin C, the body only absorbs a relatively small amount of the active ingredient when taken orally whereas an infusion into the blood is a much more effective way to get glutathione.)

For a person in need of a full dose of glutathione our clinic offers glutathione infusions which are fully absorbed by the body and produce effects much quicker than a supplement.  Glutathione infusions can either by added to our Myers Cocktail infusion for an additional $20 or be given on their own for $60.
