Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen TherapyHyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a medical treatment that uses pure, 100% oxygen, under pressure to speed and enhance the body’s natural ability to heal. It is a safe, non-invasive, and cost effective therapy.

It is well known that without adequate oxygen reaching injured tissues, no wound can heal. In many instances, providing increased oxygen under pressure can assist in the control of disease, such as Multiple Sclerosis and Lyme Disease, if not the cure.

Hyperbaric oxygen treatments deliver increased oxygen to the lungs and other parts of the body, including the plasma, bone, cells and all body fluids. This pressurized oxygen enters the cerebral spinal fluid and crosses the blood-brain barrier, entering the brain cells. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is excellent for all conditions when there is a loss of blood flow, thus a loss of oxygen.

With an acute condition such as pneumonia, sports injury, or a cold, many symptoms reverse after the second treatment. If the condition is chronic, such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, gangrene, or stroke recovery, a series of HBOT treatments are needed before symptoms disappear the body can regenerate.

Contra-indications for HBOT may include patients who are claustrophobic, have an un-treated pneumothorax, ear infections, sinus congestion, on certain chemotherapy agents or on other medications such as suflamylon R or Antabase R. Please tell your doctor if you are fitting any of these conditions before starting HBOT.

HBOT here at Windrose Clinic requires one hour. The pressure can be held at a maximum 4 psi with our Solace 210 chamber.

The Bowen Method

Dr. Letitia Dick learned the Bowen Technique from Dr. Oswald Rentsch of Australia. This manipulation is a gentle maneuver of the muscles and tendons at particular acupuncture points which allows blood flow to normalize in injured tissue. When this is performed, the body can realign itself and more readily heal an injury. The quicker a Bowen manipulation can be accomplished following an injury the more dramatic the result. For example, a sprained ankle can be corrected with Bowen immediately. There will be little or no swelling or pain within 15 minutes of the adjustment and the person can then walk normally. This is a normal result of Bowen therapy.

Long standing conditions such as dislocated hips, frozen shoulders, or misplaced temporal mandibular joints of the jaw have been quickly corrected without long hours of physical therapy or surgery. For more information on Bowen Manipulation you many contact the international Bowen association on-line at www.Bowtech.com.

Constitutional Hydrotherapy

Constitutional HydrotherapyConstitutional Hydrotherapy is by far the most effective therapy for stimulating the immune system and achieving total body detoxification. It has been used for years to detoxify heavy metal exposure, pesticide/herbicide toxicity, and the daily toxic buildup of improper diet and lifestyle. Dr. Carroll combined hot and cold contrast towel applications (the Father Kneipp water cure) with various electrical physical therapy stimulations to achieve a remarkable healing therapy. OG called this a “contitutional hydrotherapy” because it changed the very constitution of each individual cell. This means that each cell in your body is stimulated to dump waste products, to utilize nutrition more efficiently, and to work more effectively. You can rebuild your metabolism and regenerate your health with this amazing therapy.

Studies recently done at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine and Windrose Clinic determined that the constitutional hydrotherapy will raise a low basal body temperature, moderate low or high blood sugar, and moderate high or low blood pressure. Remarkably, an increase in white blood cell count by 10,000 more cells on average in circulation is seen within 2 to 8 hours after only 1 hydrotherapy. This is a rapid way to boost your immune function and fight any infection – even the antibiotic resistant bacteria.

This simplistic therapy utilizing alternating hot and cold towel application to the chest and to the back with a series of sine wave or diathermy current is utilized for acute infections such as sinusitis, whooping cough, pneumonia as well as chronic conditions such as asthma, psoriasis, irritable bowel, Crohn’s disease, or arthritis.

At the Windrose Clinic we are proud to provide the constitutional hydrotherapy in its original form as Dr. Carroll instructed. This therapy will be individualized for your needs or health concerns as both doctors first diagnose your status by listening to your heart and digestive tones with the stethoscope.

Botanical Medicine

Botanical Medicines come in many forms. Herbs can be extracted into alcohol which creates a tincture, or powdered and put into capsules, or boiled and drunk as a tea.

Windrose clinic utilizes many formulas began with O.G. Carroll. Dr.Carroll was exceptionally proficient at combining herbs to achieve specific affects. For this reason Dr. Harold Dick and Dr. Letitia Dick, have kept the compounding of these ‘Carroll capsules’ and teas the same. The Windrose Clinic has utilized the same herbal distributors for over 40 years.

A list of some of the standard ‘Carroll Capsules’ and salves are available and you may purchase these any time you need them. Others will be prescribed to you if they are needed for your therapy.

Homeopathy was originated by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. This medicine is over 200 years old and is utilized as primary medicine in the majority of the world. Homeopathy is a scientific application of minute amounts of a substance (plant, animal, or mineral) to stimulate the metabolism to correct its imbalance. This is accomplished via the theory that like cures like. We utilize a small amount of a substance that in a huge dose can cause the same symptopms it is chosen to cure.

Homeopathic remedies are in a liquid form or pellets and are dosed based upon the severity or deepness of the condition. For example, pneumonia with a fever may require Phosphorus 30C, 3 pellets every hour whereas an arthritic knee problem may require Rhus Tox 30C, 3 pellets given once a week.

Homeopathic remedies are curative, not simply palliative. They don’t cover up the symptoms, but rather stimulate the body to heal the condition.

Homeopathy is frequently utilized at the Windrose Naturopathic Clinic and may be indicated in your healing process. There are many books and remedy kits available if you are interested in utilizing this safe and effective therapy for yourself or your children and home. Please inquire if you would like more information on homeopathy.
