Natural Immune Therapies
In my 30 years of practice, I have come to rely on specific diagnostic tools and therapies that provide invaluable information about the status of the immune system and its gradual progress towards health and balance.
These are essential in the treatment of immune disorders and give us a window view of how much progress is being made during a course of natural treatment.

The dependence of immunity on the movement of body fluids is critical. Congestion, sluggishness, blockages all can prevent cells, toxins and nutrients from reaching target tissues. One of the most important aspects of restoring immune regulation is to clear pathways of movement and elimination so body fluids flow freely from cell to cell, from blood to lymph and from organs out of the body.
European Regulation Thermography
One of the best ways for us to identify patterns and pathways of dysregulation is through this highly sensitive scan of the body using a heat-sensitive probe. Developed in Germany it allows us to not only see these patterns that are below the surface, but it also evaluates gut dysbiosis, global immune system stress, unresolved viral presence, bacterial overgrowth and many more core issues that illuminate the health of the immune system.
We recommend this test at the beginning of treatment and then at periodic intervals so that your progress can be assessed.
European Decongestive Lymph Therapy
The most important of the body fluids involved in immunity is the Lymphatic system. This delicate system of channels just beneath the surface of the skin has been known for centuries, but it wasn't until Dr. Emil Vodder's work with manual techniques of lymph movement, that people began to understand the role lymph plays in health. Vodder's "lymphology" was ground-breaking work with lymphedema.
Now from Switzerland, delicate machines of fiber-optic cables and glass cups, take the Vodder approach into quantum biology with combinations of light, vibration, energetically-activated clays and suction, to rhythmically cleanse and decongest the lymphatic system. This acts to mobilize toxins, drain body fluids and increase circulation from cells to tissues to pathways of elimination. This clears the way for immune cells to reach all target tissues in the body.
Sessions are designed to open pathways, lymph channels, decongest lymph nodes and promote fluid exchange for every tissue in the body. This is done with clays and essential oils that target the dominant Chinese element of the patient and the affecting element of the season at hand which will also reduce symptoms associated with an imbalance in the Chinese elements.
Cleansing Colonic Hydrotherapy
The pathways of elimination are one of the most important facets of immunity. If the body is congested with toxic material that was intended to be removed, then immunity is compromised. How many people believe that it is perfectly normal to have 2-3 bowel movements each week? How many people are living with debilitating bowel conditions such as IBS, Crohn's or Colitis?
In autopsies on colons 70% of people had encrustation within their colon, 50% of those had parasitic infestation and 25% had up to eight pounds of undigested matter lining their colon (this was one of the most talked about facts in the death of John Wayne). This may be a major reason why colon cancer ranks next to heart disease as the most frequent cause of death in the U.S. today.
But the impact this has on immunity is unrecognized and can be lethal. This is the only gentle therapy available to help alleviate constipation, diarrhea, cramping and bowel dysfunction. Combined with one of our gentle herbal cleansing programs, the colon can be restored to a healthy function in a matter of weeks.
FAR Infrared Sauna Therapy
Step into the most amazing sauna technology available today. Oprah's a fan. Dr. Oz said that this type of sauna extends life. 30 minutes will help you burn 600 calories but more importantly it will boost and balance immunity reducing symptoms of every immune disorder.
Made by Sunlighten Sauna, the top clinical sauna researcher in the U.S., the FAR Infrared Sauna is made from natural hypoallergenic basswood which provides the perfect atmosphere for detoxification. Used traditionally by beekeepers, basswood is a great wood choice for any sensitive individuals, especially those with multiple chemical sensitivity, sensitive skin, or cancer patients. FAR Infrared light technology, which is part of the Sun's invisible spectrum of light, has the ability to penetrate the skin. Using infrared lights instead of steam makes it possible to reach deeper tissues including bone. The effects are significantly more than traditional steam saunas including significant pain relief, increased lymphatic flow and better immune resistance to illness.
Simply by raising core body temperature, your body is stimulated to combat infection and produce more white blood cells. Collagen growth is increased, enzyme activity is restored, cell death is reduced by half and cell health regeneration is enhanced. Research by NASA, the Medical College of Wisconsin and The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology have verified the benefits in many autoimmune disorders.
