IV Nutrition Therapy

Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutritional supplements are a cornerstone of the treatment programs at the Apex MD Wellness Canter. However, when you need maximum therapeutic punch, intravenous (IV) drips are the way to go. .

Infusing nutrients directly into the bloodstream via a vein has several advantages. First, it bypasses the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and the digestive process, so you avoid the inevitable loss of potency and potential absorption problems characteristic of anything taken by mouth.

Second, much higher concentrations can be administered. For example, the human body sets very tight limits on the amount of oral vitamin C that can be absorbed at any given time. Anything above and beyond 400–500 mg is rapidly flushed out in the urine. Higher dosing is perfectly safe, but large amounts of vitamin C are notorious for causing diarrhea. However, because IVs bypass the GI tract, very high, therapeutic doses may be infused.

The IV department at Apex Wellness Center, is overseen by our physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurse,in a large, pleasant room, full of comfortable recliners where patients sit during treatments and read, chat with other patients, nap, or simply relax.

IV administration of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients is a powerful, yet overlooked, treatment for numerous health concerns—including anxiety and depression, mental and physical fatigue, drug dependence, and alcohol abuse. At Apex MD Wellness, we treat these and other health challenges with specific, proven nutrient combinations that not only address the underlying pathology but also help correct the nutritional deficiencies that are common in many disease states.

Medical Massage Therapy

It can be an integral part of medical care and can be incorporated into medical practice for many reasons. A massage done at a local salon or spa of course feels wonderful, and can be incredibly rejuvenating, however, chronic pain or fatigue can return rather quickly. This is in part because the underlying cause of pain is not being addressed. On the other hand, a therapeutic and or medical massage performed along with the medical knowledge and guidance of a medical practitioner, can change the course of your rehabilitation. If you have had a recent surgery, a therapeutic massage can make a great difference in your healing time and can immensely help reduce the appearance of scar tissue.

Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy

This is an old (as old as Premarin) and well-documented method of delivering bioidentical hormones that utilizes small pellets about the size of a grain of rice that are painlessly inserted under the skin (the procedure is less painful than having your blood drawn). We’ve found the easiest and best place to insert them is under the skin of the lateral buttocks. The hormones in the pellets are bioidentical (exact molecular match of human hormone) and consist of either estradiol, the most important of the three female human estrogens, and testosterone. Some women are surprised to hear that they might need testosterone replacement as well as estrogen replacement. Perimenopausal women and post-menopausal women usually need some of both. Testosterone levels are usually around 5-10% that of a man. Testosterone helps with a number of issues including libido, mood stabilization, brain function, and bone density.

Pellets are synthesized from soybeans or wild yam. They are either pure estradiol or pure testosterone. Other than a small amount of stearic acid as is common in pharmaceuticals, there are no other ingredients in them. They dissolve completely with no residue under the skin over a 3-6 month period.

Ayurvedic Medicine and Panchakarma Detox Program

The word ayurveda derives from Sanskrit and means “the science of life”. It is one of the oldest systems of medicine in the world. The crucial value of Ayurvedic medicine is to maintain the body’s balance of body, mind and spirit. By achieving this one can evade infection as well as illness and reach harmony.

Ayurveda brings healthy metabolic state, good digestion and proper excretion to your life. On the other hand to conquer the apt balance you must recognize a few key basics. These basics are integrated within worldwide interconnectedness, life forces (doshas) and the body’s constitution (prakriti). By considerate these key elements within areas of Ayurvedic medicine you can see the origin for Ayurvedic health.

Panchakarma (five actions)

is a cleansing and rejuvenating program for the body, mind and consciousness. It is known for its beneficial effects on overall health, wellness and self-healing.

Health is defined as the body being clear of toxins, the mind is at peace, emotions are calm and happy, wastes are efficiently eliminated and organs are functioning normally. In a busy, stressful and toxic world, our physical and mental systems accumulate toxins causing deterioration in bodily functioning. This eventually weakens our systems, which opens the door for chronic, degenerative, and non-specific diseases to develop. These can evolve into serious specific diseases, ultimately damaging an make the necessary positive changes in lifestyle.

The Panchakarma therapeutic process seems very simple but its effects are powerful. This treatment is completely natural and unique. The series of this treatment will cleanse the body of deep tissue toxins, open the necessary channels, bring in a rejuvenation and enhancing sense of well-being thereby increasing vitality, confidence and health.

Panchakarma begins with proper preparation. This includes provision by our center of a wholesome diet rich in fiber, grains and protein which begins the process of loosening up the toxins and bringing it back to the digestive system for elimination. While the person is eating special foods, oil and steam therapies are applied. These include the deeply relaxing therapies of Ayurvedic massage (Abhyanga), Shirodhara, and Swedena.

Abhyanga

(whole body oleation therapy) is a unique therapy where trained body work therapists perform a choreographed hand dance upon the body using special strokes. Using oils blended with special herbs, this form of massage specifically loosens up the deep tissue fat soluble toxins that have been associated with a wide range of health problems. The therapy helps to move the toxins out for elimination from the body. Abhyanga can be administered alone or as part of Panchakarma.

Shirodhara

is a unique therapy where the client lies down upon a Ayurveda table with their eyes covered. Then a specially prepared warm herbal oil is poured in a thin steady stream through a spicket directly onto the forhead and sixth chakra. This blissful therapy purifies the mind, alleviates anxiety, reduces headaches and expands awareness. This procedure induces a relaxed state of awareness, which results in a dynamic psycho-somatic balance. A total feeling of wellness, mental clarity and comprehension is experienced in this process. Shirodhara can be administered alone or as part of Panchakarma.

Swedena

is a full body steam therapy. Special herbs are infused into the steam and together the heat and herbs dilate the lymphatic channel systems of the body allowing the stored toxins to be moved back into the digestive tract for elimination.

Nasya

is nasal administration of medication. Medicated oil drops are introduced into the nasal passages. They remove residual doshas and toxins from the head and neck area. Nasya is used in cases of migraine, chronic rhinitis, epilepsy etc.

The final phase is elimination of the toxins that have been loosened during the detoxification process through the use of purgatives and herbal enemas.

Panchakarma can help by reversing these negative effects of daily living. It can restore your natural state of health and wellness by cleansing your body of toxins, bringing balance into your system and improving bodily function. It can also help you sustain this process by making positive changes in lifestyle. For many this is a life changing experience
