Anti-Aging and Alternative Medical Services

Dr. Jeff Hanson at the Nevada Center of Alternative and Anti-Aging offers a number of services and therapies. Some of their offered therapies include:

The HCG Diet

The HCG Diet uses the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin the help men and women achieve significant weight loss. Several men and women have been able to lose weight on the HCG Diet. This diet allows for the HCG hormone to use fat for fuel, and it causes the release of thousands of calories of fat to be released into the bloodstream. While on the HCG diet, the patient must follow a strict low calorie diet that prevents the body from holding onto any more fat. After finishing the HCG Diet, most patients achieve permanent weight loss.

Bio-Energy Testing

The most innovative health and anti-aging tool ever developed. Every cell in your body contains thousands of tiny bubble-like structures called mitochondria. It is in these mitochondria that oxygen is converted to energy by burning fat and sugar. Bio-Energy Testing measures how well your mitochondria are functioning. Absolutely nothing is more critical to your health than mitochondrial function. Poor mitochondrial function is the root cause of every disease, obesity, and even the very process of aging itself. If your mitochondrial functioning is optimal, congratulations! If not, the information from Bio-Energy Testing can be used to determine what you need to do to correct the problem.

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

By now, almost everyone has heard of Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Many popular books by Suzanne Somers and others have effectively spread the word about this very important anti-aging and disease preventing therapy. The Doctor has been a leader in the use of BHRT for over fifteen years. He has written extensively about it in both of his books, Bursting With Energy and The Type 2 Diabetes Breakthrough. Don’t confuse bio-identical hormone replacement with synthetic hormone replacement. You have seen the headlines about synthetic replacement. It has conclusively been proven to be dangerous, and should never be given. Bio-identical hormones are completely different. They are the same hormones that are already in your body. There has never been one study that has indicated that the use of bio-identical hormones is anything but healthy.

Breast Thermography

Breast cancer is a common disease. It does not spare the rich and famous, vegetarians, or women younger than forty. It occurs more often in women who are the daughters or sisters of breast cancer victims, but it also frequently occurs in women without this history. If cancer is found early enough, it can often be cured. But all too often this is not the case. This is why early detection is so important. Breast Thermography has over 12,000 citations and studies in current medical journals. Breast thermography, is becoming increasingly more popular for two reasons. One, it is gentle to the breast. There is no compression, and no ionizing radiation. Second, thermographic evidence of breast disease can show up long before it can be seen on a mammogram.

Chelation Therapy

Chelation Therapy is an intravenous treatment using a solution containing minerals, vitamins, and a special amino acid called EDTA. It is a highly effective therapy used to treat angina, coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis, heavy metal toxicity, and hypertension. CheZone therapy consists of a combination of Chelation Therapy and Ozone Therapy. CheZone therapy is the doctor’s own innovation, which has proven to greatly enhance the already well documented efficacy of Chelation Therapy. Chelation Therapy improves circulation, enabling more oxygen to reach the cells. Ozone therapy enables the cells to use the oxygen that is being delivered with a much higher level of efficiency. These two modalities are truly synergistic, and the results of either are greatly increased when they are administered together. For this reason, in most clinical situations, we prefer CheZone treatments over Chelation therapy alone.

Ozone Therapy

Dr. Shallenberger is the leading expert in the medical use of ozone in the United States. Ozone therapy is a unique form of therapy that both heals and detoxifies at the same time. It used to treat a variety of chronic disease including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Lyme disease, chronic hepatitis, herpes, chronic fatigue states, chemical sensitivity, macular degeneration, chronic bladder conditions, colitis, autoimmune diseases, and Crohn’s disease.

Comprehensive Cancer Therapy-Insulin Potentiation Therapy

Our cancer programs are specially designed to meet the needs of patients who have been newly diagnosed, are currently in treatment, or who have completed treatment. We offer individualized protocols of homeopathic anti-cancer therapies combined with therapies designed to increase vitality, strength, and immune function. Every case is analyzed and treated individually according to its particular characteristics. Our cancer management line of attack centers around the use of Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT). IPT is a specialized form of homeopathic chemotherapy that uses the same chemotherapeutic agents that are used by oncologists. The difference is that with the IPT technique, we are able to use about a tenth of the dose and still get the same cancer killing effect. This therapy amounts to a gentler, safer, more natural approach, especially when it is combined with an individualized program of detoxification, vitality enhancement, and immune system support.

Ozone Sauna Therapy

Ozone Therapy can be used effectively as a sauna. The patient sits in a personal steam sauna. The sauna heats up to a comfortable temperature and then carbon dioxide gas is infused into the sauna. After this, the carbon dioxide is removed and the sauna is infused with ozone gas. The heat and the carbon dioxide serve to open up the circulation to the skin so that when the ozone gas is infused it is absorbed by the skin into the general circulation. Ozone Sauna Therapy is a way to give a generalized ozone treatment while at the same time directly treating any disorders of the skin.

Hydrozone Colon Therapy

One of the five cardinal healing processes is detoxification. Whether you do IPT cancer treatments, Prolozone Injections for pain relief, or the HCG Weight Loss program, detoxification is an important part of the healing process. Anything a person can do to rid the body of accumulated toxins facilitates improved results and a faster recovery. Ridding the body of accumulated matter in the bowel is the most effective way to relieve autointoxication, the process by which the body cycles toxins through itself. Colon Hydrotherapy is especially helpful for chronic conditions such as Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue as well as Arthritic conditions.

Metabolic Weight Loss

Anyone can lose weight – that’s the easy part. There are a lot of weight loss programs out there and they all work. Losing the weight is not the problem. In 2005, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a landmark study that compared the four most popular weight loss diets: The Atkins diet, the Ornish diet (low fat/vegetarian), the Zone diet, and the Weight Watcher’s diet. The results? No matter what program they were on, everyone lost an equal amount of weight. Similarly, no matter what program they were on, everyone regained the weight. Our weight loss program is unlike anything you have ever seen or heard about.

Prolozone Pain Therapy

Prolozone is a homeopathic/oxygen injection technique developed and pioneered by the doctor. It is excellent for all forms of musculoskeletal and joint pain including chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic hips and knees, degenerated discs, and shoulder and elbow pain. The good thing about Prolozone is that because it actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP is blood plasma with concentrated platelets. The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. These bioactive proteins initiate connective tissue healing: bone, tendon and ligament regeneration and repair, promote development of new blood vessels, and stimulate the wound healing process.
To prepare PRP, blood is taken from the patient and through a separating process, the components within the blood are isolated to produce the PRP. The entire process takes about 15-20 minutes. When PRP is injected into the damaged area it stimulates the tendon or ligament as well as causing mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade.

Neurotransmitter Therapy

Our brains are soggy computers. Instead of wires and circuitry brain cells communicate with each other using chemicals called neurotransmitters. The balance of these chemicals determine how we think, how we move, our emotions, how we sleep, how we eat – basically every single regulating aspect of brain function. When these neurotransmitters are in balance the brain works well and the body functions efficiently. However, the problem is that everyone is different. Some of us come into this world with a brain chemistry that it so balanced that it takes a lot to disturb it. I call this “bomb proof brain chemistry.” You know people who have bomb proofed brain chemistry. They are the ones who can eat poorly, drink too much, take drugs without getting addicted, go easily without sleep, and handle incredible levels of stress with ease, but for every person with bomb proofed brain chemistry, there is someone else who has vulnerable chemistry.

Detoxification

There are two basic things that the body needs in order to heal itself. One thing needed is nutrients and the other is detoxification. Briefly stated detoxification is the removal of toxic materials that have accumulated in the body. These materials are called toxic because they interfere with the activity of the cells. Toxins come from two sources. First of all, humans are by their very metabolisms producers of toxins. These toxins are byproducts of normal human metabolism. The other source of toxins is the environment. They can come in the form of pesticides, artificial chemicals in our foods, chemicals that we place on our bodies or inhale. They also include many drugs. The worst of all of the environmental toxins are the heavy metals.

Heavy metals refer to certain toxic minerals that attach so firmly to cells that they cannot easily be removed. Because of this they will accumulate over time. By the time that we are 60 years old most of us have already accumulated a substantial amount of heavy metals. As soon as the levels get high enough (and that varies between different people) they start to interfere with healing and cause disease. The main heavy metals are lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and uranium.

All toxins can be a major stumbling block for healing. That’s’ the bad news. But here’s the good news. They can be removed. The body is set up to remove these toxins through the actions of the liver, kidneys, lungs, skin, and lymphatic system. And that is what a detoxification program is all about.
