Osteoporosis

Natural Treatment Targeting the Cause of Bone Loss

bone loss.png

Around the world figures show that each year osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures. This equates to an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds. Statistics also show women are more affected with 1 in 3 women over age 50 experiencing an osteoporotic fracture compared to 1 in 5 men.

There is many causes of excessive bone loss leading to osteoporosis including a drop in estrogen when a woman reaches a certain age, hyperthyroidism, mineral and vitamin deficiencies, toxic exposure, eating disorders, sedentary lifestyle, some medications used to treat other conditions and smoking among others. And although predominately it affects those over the age of 50 it can also affect younger generations. Some are diagnosed with Osteoporosis in their teens while there is also a growing number of women getting diagnosed during or after pregnancy, a condition called Pregnancy Related Osteoporosis.

More and more individuals diagnosed with osteoporosis are seeking natural ways to treat their condition. Here at Neomed in Cyprus we have created an Osteoporosis program for such individuals which targets the cause of bone loss and therefore tailored to each individual guest.

One of the very first steps in our program is to discover what levels of heavy metal toxicity reside in your organs and tissues and which minerals you are actually deficient in. Frequent exposure to toxic substances can actually cause vitamin and mineral deficiencies and we find that the majority of individuals with Osteoporosis will have both these issues. Lead for example is known to inhibit activation of vitamin D, uptake of dietary calcium, and several regulatory aspects of bone cell function. We use an amazing piece of technology called Zell Screening to discover this important data before we do anything else. Rather than testing what is circulating in the blood or what is being excreted from the body through urine, this non invasive test shows what toxicity and what minerals are in the body’s living tissues which gives us a much more reliable and accurate picture.

Once we know what levels of toxicity you have and which substances we embark on our unique detox program to drag these out of your tissues. As part of our detox we use ozone therapies to clean your blood of any bacteria, viruses or yeast, to stimulate your metabolism and to boost your immune system.

Our next step is to examine your digestive tract to discover if you are absorbing the nutrients in your food, whether your body is eliminating all unwanted substances and also whether there is any parasitic infection in your gut contributing to malabsorption. Once we have a picture of your digestive system we include advanced gastrointestinal therapies to your program to correct the microbiome of the intestinal tract, to heal the mucosa lining and to increase the absorption of the nutrients from your foods. We also look at correcting your acidic ph balance with special alkalising infusions direct into your bloodstream bypassing the gut process.

Of course included in this step is to look at your diet and we will make specific recommendations based on your Zell Screening report and on the analysis of your digestive system.

Decreasing inflammation and pain along with the healing and strengthening of bone injured from fractures is also a very important part of our program. We have a range of sophisticated and groundbreaking physio, magnet therapies and electrical stimulation to help us with this task. One of the favourite therapies for our guests is Papimi. Papimi is the most powerful nanopulse magnet therapy available with an array of benefits including immune stimulation and pain relief, and shortened recovery times for fractures and injuries. Papimi not only helps to heal fractured bone but also helps to strengthen it and with regular use helps to prevent future fractures.

We also guide and support you through an exercise program, one which you can continue when you return home. Daily exercise is imperative for anyone with osteoporosis even though many shy away from this because of fear of fractures.

Prolonged stress can also contribute to osteoporosis, so we have included therapies to switch your autonomic nervous system from sympathetic to parasympathetic mode. We are also encourage all of our guests to spend time with our Physiotherapist to include emotional healing alongside their physical therapies.

If you have a diagnosis of Osteoporosis and a natural route is your chosen path you do not have to do so alone. There is many ways we can help you and support your on your healing journey. If would like to know more about our Osteoporosis Program feel free to send us a message below and we respond to your enquiry asap.

Announcing ZELL-SCREENING now available at Neomed

ZELL-SCREENING.jpg

ZELL-SCREENING At Our Cyprus Clinic!

We are pleased to announce that we are now offering ZELL-SCREENING (ZS) at our clinic here in Cyprus.

ZELL-SCREENING is a painless, cost-effective, super fast, accurate cell analysis system. This amazingly innovative optical technology screens minerals, trace elements and toxic metals at the intratissular level through a simple hand held mobile device which is connected to a cloud based data software system.

The non-invasive ZELL-SCREENING (ZS) works optically by spectro-photometry (measurement with light) according to Lambert-Beer's law:

"Each substance absorbs and emits light of a certain wavelength

range. The more concentrated a substance is, the more light is

absorbed. This allows a quantitative analysis."

This test is to show the bioavailability of minerals, trace elements and heavy metals in the body’s living tissues and not what is circulating in the blood or being excreted from the body through urine.This allows us to see what is happening directly in tissues and not in the body's fluids which are thus much more unstable and less reliable. The ZELL-SCREENING test allows one to observe what happens in the muscle or in the venous blood, extracted from muscular tissue, therefore giving an estimate of the intra-tissular bioavailibility. It currently measures 20 minerals and trace elements and 14 toxic metals (environmental toxins).

The test only takes a few minutes and the results are available moments after, with the ability of immediate interpretation.

If you are worried about the levels of toxicity in your body or indeed the levels of necessary minerals and elements this is a worthwhile test to take.

If you would like more info on this our ZELL-SCREENING test or to book an appointment then please contact us using the form below:

7 Steps to Switch Your Body from Sympathetic to Parasympathetic Mode

step-6-try-origami.png

7 Steps to Switch Your Body from Sympathetic to Parasympathetic Mode

First of all, you may ask what is sympathetic and parasympathetic. In simple terms, your body is in sympathetic mode when the nervous system is activated to "fight and flight" mode and parasympathetic when in "rest and digest" mode. It is imperative to activate your Parasympathetic Nervous System to release emotional stress, accelerate healing and improve recovery.

Our body's sympathetic nervous system (also known as SNS) and parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) are intelligently designed to handle and adapt to stress and balance each other out. However, in today's stressful world, our SNS, which is designed for acute stress, is in most people activated the majority of the time. Even worrying about something that hasn't happened or could happen activates our SNS. Drinking too much caffeine, eating too much sugar, commuting in rush hour traffic, stressing about our jobs, our children and our health can also activate our SNS and keep our bodies in "fight or flight" mode.

Once we identify that our nervous system is out of balance, we can then look at ways that can help our bodies to recover from this stressful mode.

To help you, we have put together 7 simple techniques that you could add to your routine to help activate your Parasympathetic nervous system and assist you on your healing journey.

There are many techniques to activate our parasympathetic nervous system but these are just some of our favourite techniques. Other activities that help include practising yoga or tai chi, playing with children or animals, meditation, getting a massage and going for green walks. Remember, this is not a once off activity, our bodies are under constant stress so it is important to find techniques that we enjoy and are comfortable with, so we can incorporate them into our daily schedule.

If you feel your body is in a constant state of "fight and flight" and you would like to talk to us about how we can help you regain your balance, contact us for a free consult.

A Fast and Powerful Option for Knee and Joint Problems

Knee-joint-injections.jpg

Millions of aging people are plagued by arthritis in the knees. Osteoarthritis is a slowly progressive disease in which joint cartilage breaks down.

The pathological changes include degradation of the articular cartilage, formation of osteophytes, inflammation of the synovium, degeneration of the ligaments and thickening of the subchondral bone. As a result, symptoms of joint pain and stiffness occur, with grinding and cracking sensations. Repeated activity that causes high stress on the joints and aging are the most common causes of osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis causes severe pain, disability, and reduction in quality of life.

The articular cartilage has a limited ability of intrinsic healing and repair due to the lack of blood vessels, lymphatics and nerves. Currently, there are no approved treatments for osteoarthritis that can slow down the structural progression or delay the need for total knee replacement.

Ozone is a naturally occurring gas that consists of three atoms of oxygen. It has been used for treatment for over a century. The alternative therapy of ozone gas appears to be promising in reducing inflammation and balancing free radicals in the body. Ozone has therapeutic aims in chronic diseases, by activating the cellular metabolism, reducing prostaglandin synthesis, reducing oxidative stress, vasodilation and angiogenesis stimulation. Injecting ozone gas into the knee can reduce pain and improve functioning and overall health.

Ozone has a significantly broader mechanism of action than NSAIDs and corticosteroids, providing anti-inflammatory effect and antalgic gait. The value of intra-articular ozone in reducing pain and improving function in patients with knee osteoarthritis was confirmed in several clinical trials. Intra-articular ozone is safe to use. Adverse events rarely occur, with acute pain in the knee at the moment of the ozone application.

Ozone gas injections can give a patient a better quality of life with less pain in performing the daily life activities. It can also delay the need of joint replacement surgery.

Weekly intra-articular ozone administration for 8 weeks can reduce osteoarthritis associated pain, improve joint function and improve the quality of life of patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis.

Please, contact us to find out more about this therapy and book a session.
