Our Chronic Disease Treatment generally follows our SSRP protocol as defined and described below.
- Stop the progression of the disease and strengthen the immune system
- Stabilize the patient to include balancing hormones and restoration of energy
- Reverse cellular, mitochondrial and other damage done by the disease processes as evidenced by various lab markers and/or symptomatic expression
- Prevent further development of the disease processes
Our SSRP protocol provides patients with a leading-edge program based heavily on the emerging body of evidence in the chronic disease space that is well supported by peer reviewed medical journals, clinical studies from observational studies all the way to double-blind placebo controlled studies. We focus on safety and efficacy when selecting treatments. Treatment protocols depending on the disease are comprised of IV Vitamin Therapy, high-quality and targeted nutritional supplementation, botanicals, traditional medications where indicated and compassionate care by our team of doctors. As an integrative practice, we use conventional medications when indicated especially in cases of underlying co-infections and other areas where conventional medication offers the best course of treatment. Read below to learn more about the 4 pillars of our SSRP approach.
STOP progression of the disease
Our first goal is to stop the progression of the disease. Here, we use binders both medication-based as well as targeted nutritional supplement and botanicals as well. Many patients begin IV Vitamin Therapy immediately after commencing with a program. Many patients report significant improvement after just one IV treatment. We will also introduce conventional medications at this point when indicated.
STABILIZE the patient
Stabilizing the patient is the process of assessing the response to the early interventions, adding the appropriate oral nutritional supplementation to augment the IV Therapy and providing bioidentical hormone replacement to balance the hormones and improving detoxification pathways to aid in healing and repair. In addition, we add other conventional medications as needed based on the results of our comprehensive lab panel to treat any identified infectious components. By the time we have introduced these components, patients typically experience significant improvement in sleep, meaningful reduction of chronic pain, reduced fatigue and increased energy.
REVERSE cellular, mitochondrial and other damage done by the chronic disease processes
Not all damage can be reversed, but our treatment protocol has a high probability of reversing cellular and mitochondrial damage, enhancing mitochondrial function, and addressing and treating other etiologies such as neurotoxins, mast cell activation disorder, hyper-sensitivities and other debilitating effects.
PREVENT further development of the disease processes
Our program relies on therapeutic dosages of key nutritional supplements such as D-Ribose, CO-Q10, Fish Oil, L-Carnitine as and detoxification support as part of the program to prevent further development and escalation of the disease. Some patients may also require continuous periodic IV Therapy treatments and use of some conventional medications to maintain the benefits of the treatment. We periodically get updated lab results to verify that the patient is maintaining the benefits of the treatment, and we use these to determine if additional interventions are needed.
