Fact: A wide range of non-pharmacological tools support the notion that psychiatric care is more than medication dispensement. Health, healing, and mental health form the bedrock of integrative psychiatry. It is from this ground-level vantage that we can begin to see our treatments, our tools, our tasks, and our patients in a light that fosters healing rather than the absence of symptoms. Integrative medicine seeks first to do no harm. Above all else, we want to protect the mind, body, and spirit of our patients. With proper support and the alleviation of obstacles, the mind, body, or spirit can often heal itself. This is one of the obvious though often overlooked facts of health, especially in the territory of the brain—that care comes best as a support mechanism, not an intervention.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved BioDelivery Sciences International's supplemental new drug application (sNDA) for Bunavail (buprenorphine and naloxone) buccal film, the company said today.

The sNDA allows for use of Bunavail at the start of buprenorphine treatment for opioid dependence. Previously, the indication for Bunavail only covered the maintenance phase of treatment for opioid dependence.

"The approval broadens the indication for Bunavail to include induction, or the initial process undertaken when a patient is transitioned from the abused opioid responsible for their addiction to the dose of Bunavail which is intended to provide relief from cravings and withdrawal," the company said in a news release.

Have you heard of Dr. Kildare? When I was a kid, he was the most popular doctor in the world. He was smart, courageous, and handsome, and every week he did something amazing at Blair General Hospital.

Thanks to my mother, I grew up hearing stories about a real-life Dr. Kildare. We’ll call him Dr. B, and he was a legend in my home state of North Carolina.

Many service members who sustain a concussion also cope with depression. There is a distinct connection between depression and traumatic brain injury (TBI). In fact, depression diagnoses increase after a brain injury.

“Sometimes the challenge is [that] post-concussive syndrome can sound the same as depression,” said Kelvin Lim, principal investigator for the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center location at the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Health Care System. “It is important to be aware of overlap between the two.”

TBI and Depression

Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center research found that depression can strongly influence post-concussion symptoms following a concussion. The study shows that patients who are diagnosed with both a concussion and depression report more severe symptoms than patients with only a concussion.

Ozone therapy is the basis of a type of therapy that’s been used to help fight “incurable” diseases throughout the world. Administered intravenously (I.V.), this method was first used by doctors in France in 1951. Widely used in Europe, ozone therapy was introduced into the United States in the early 1980’s.

With anti-aging effects, ozone therapy has been found useful in various diseases because it:

- Activates and boosts the immune system in infectious diseases.
- For those with auto-immune disorders, ozone will modulate the immune system to help to stop it from attacking healthy human cells.
- Improves the cellular utilization of oxygen that reduces ischemia in cardiovascular diseases, and in many of the infirmities of aging.
Increases energy production in your cells
- Causes the release of growth factors that stimulate damaged joints and degenerative discs to regenerate.
- Can dramatically reduce or even eliminate many cases of chronic pain through its action on pain receptors.
- Chelates all metals from the body, such as lead, mercury, aluminum, arsenic, and so forth, by extracting them from blood, cells and nerve tissue.
- Makes red blood cells flow with less viscosity and become more flexible to flow through narrowed or clogged arteries.
- Reduces the level of acidity of your body
- Increases the activity of your “anti-oxidant enzyme systems”
- Kills bacteria, viruses (and virtually all other disease causing organisms) on contact
- Kills cancer cells on contact
- Has demonstrated its healing effects on interstitial cystitis, chronic hepatitis, herpes infections, dental infections, diabetes, and macular degeneration–as documented through published papers.

Excess weight is a complex problem that affects many aspects of one’s health and quality of life. The causes of weight gain are multi-faceted and our customized weight loss programs are tailored to each individual’s needs.

A biochemical nutrition assessment is an in-depth evaluation of both objective and subjective data related to an individual’s food and nutrient intake, lifestyle and medical history. Functional nutritional testing identifies biochemical imbalances through laboratory analysis, and is useful when standard medical tests have not identified the underlying cause of a health issue.

Our non-surgical nutritional and medical weight loss clinic begins with a thorough initial medical and lifestyle consultation so that specific individualized plans can be developed and implemented. Programs include nutritional assessments and education; metabolic testing; behavioral analysis; a review of individual medical conditions that cause or affect weight and exercise/physical activity prescriptions.
Learn effective strategies to keep weight off using real food, improve eating behaviors, balance stress and incorporate exercise and activities.

Anti-aging medicine emphasizes an integrative and holistic approach to treating the body and the mind; optimizing health, maintaining wellness, reducing known risk factors, prevention of diseases, pre-emptive testing and slowing down age-related diseases. Functional medicine and anti-aging medicine are actually two different names for similar processes: optimize the body’s function and aging slows down.

Pure Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments
(Bio-Facial Skin Rejuvenation)

Platelet Rich Plasma has been used for facial rejuvenation for over 20 years. The procedure has now been perfected with no red blood cells, eliminating the red appearance with Pure PRP. This treatment is ideal for individuals wanting to naturally improve their skin texture, tone and color with no recovery time. The growth factors in Pure PRP stimulate proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes, which aid the body in the production of collagen and keratin. These growth factors also have a significant role in the formation of new blood vessels, synthesizing collagen and hyaluronic acid.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Using a special device called Marrow Cellution, MJA Healthcare is able to quickly and safely obtain a high quantity of valuable stem cells from the patient’s bone marrow. The stem cells can then be re-administered to the patient, and can be used to prevent, alleviate, or treat a number of injuries and issues.
