nerve pain from chemo/diabetes; pain from the spread of cancer, particularly bone pain) Relieving pain related to cancer, and/or common side effects of chemotherapy, especially nerve pain or neuropathy, is a major focus of our program. We use the latest natural, safe and evidence-based therapies in various combinations which have proven to be enormously successful in relieving pain and improving quality of life in our cancer and chronic pain patients.
Natural and nutritionally-based IV Therapies: The heart of our pain and quality of life program is found in our infusion suite where we offer some of the most innovative and cutting edge infusions in the country. The program consists of a variety of safe, powerful, and evidence-based intravenous therapies administered 2-3 times weekly to assist in the relief of pain and inflammation. Some of our formulations contain DMSO, one of the most potent anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving therapies in the world. DMSO is unique in its pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties, possessing none of the dangerous side effects of steroids, narcotic drugs or traditional anti-inflammatories. Our premier IV therapy specifically designed for assisting in the relief of cancer pain is a proprietary combination of Curcumin and DMSO in an emulsified form that can be given intravenously. Some patients have reported virtually complete relief of metastatic bone pain from the spread of cancer within 1-2 weeks of starting our intensive pain therapy program.
Customized Oral supplementation Program: includes supplements such as enzymes, homeopathic remedies used throughout the world for their effectiveness and safety, and herbs such as curcumin with powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects.
Acupuncture and TCM: Dr. Matt Johnson is highly regarded in his field as being one of the top practitioners for treating cancer pain using acupuncture and a variety of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) techniques.
Trigger Point Injections: Using powerful homeopathics, areas of pain can be directly injected with safe and natural remedies such as Traumeel and Zeel without concern for allergic, toxic or other traditional medication side effects.
Diet, nutrition and lifestyle optimization: We strongly emphasize and educate patients about how to transition to a plant-based diet which lowers blood sugar and has been proven highly effective in helping to relieve pain and inflammation of any etiology, and to support the body and immune system to more effectively fight cancer.
Preventive Strategies: With the support and approval of your oncologist, specific supplements, antioxidants and intravenous therapies such as glutathione may be given prior to, during, or after chemotherapy. Research shows that glutathione may help mitigate or prevent the intensity and severity of the neuropathic pain induced as a side effect of several of the most potent chemotherapies such as cisplatin.
Chiropractic and massage Therapies: We are fortunate to have on premises an excellent massage therapist and one of the best Chiropractors in the Orlando area, Dr. Jay Seltzer. The therapies they offer focus on restoring proper alignment of the spine and other joints, and stretching, strengthening and balancing muscles tendons and ligaments. They can go a long way in assisting in relieving pain and optimizing neuromuscular function.
