IV Nutrition Drips
Intravenous or IV therapy is a highly effective way to feed large quantities of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and amino acids directly into the bloodstream for immediate nutrient absorption. Patients can get over 10 times the nutrients in one treatment as they could orally in one day.
High doses of nutrients can enhance cellular function, correct nutrient deficiencies, boost energy, balance mood, enhance the immune system and address acute and chronic infections. Using these high dosages as nutritional support can help extreme athlete recovery, detox the body and clear free radicals, and aid in general body repair and recovery from numerous health issues.
Dr. Murphy has over a dozen IV formulas and can custom blend IV treatments based on the diagnosis and specific needs of the patient. These include Amino Acids, Brain and Mood Balancing drips, Glutathione, Hydrogen Peroxide, Immune Boost Drip, Meyer’s Cocktail, MSM, Multi-Vitamin+Mineral Combo, Phosphatidylcholine, Vision Drip, Vitamin C Drip, Vitality Drip, and Weight Loss IV.
Naturopathy is based on the principle that the body has the ability to maintain its own balance and heal itself. The goal of naturopathic medicine is to further this process by using natural and holistic remedies to aid in whole health restoration.
Dr. Murphy starts where you are. After an in-depth analysis and diagnosis, she designs an individualized treatment program to return the body to its normal state of healthy functioning, encouraging the body to heal itself.
Using either stand-alone treatments or a combination of her specialized modalities, she will help you achieve your healthiest potential. Dr. Murphy can prescribe a personalized program of nutritional supplements from her naturopathic pharmacy. By blending herbal medicine, homeopathic tinctures, flower essences and nutritional supplements, a full regime of healing becomes available to you. Your treatment often extends outside of your visit to include lifestyle, exercise, nutritional, and stress management recommendations.
FACIAL REJUVENATION THERAPIES
1) Microneedling: with the InnoPen MD and Hyaluronic acid
Microneedling uses a surgical steel, medical grade device to stamp the skin with microneedles. The InnoPen MD is an advanced microneedle pen for doctor-use only. It enhances collagen production and skin repair and can take many years of aging off of your skin. It allows for deeper penetration of treatment solutions, like hyaluronic acid, to achieve optimal skin healing and rejuvenation.
2) PRP: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelets are blood cells that aid the body in growing new cells. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), injected into the skin, acts to promote your own collagen to grow, regenerate tissue, and thus naturally smooth and tighten the skin.
PRP Administration via Injections and/or Microneedling: The procedure involves a quick blooddraw, followed by a process using the high-quality Emcyte centrifuge machine to isolate your own body’s natural platelet-rich plasma (PRP). This PRP solution concentrate is administered to the desired treatment area in one of two ways, or both ways may be used for more optimal results:
a) PRP Facelift: This involves targeted injections of highly-concentrated PRP into certain areas of the face or other skin areas needing skin rejuvenation treatment.
b) PRP Microneedling: The PRP is smoothed over the desired treatment area and microneedling is used to drive the PRP solution deep into the skin. Common treatment areas include the face, neck, chest, hands, scalp (for hair), scarred skin, or other desired treatment areas – to erase wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation and create a more youthful look.
As we age, the production of hormones steadily declines beginning as early as 25-30 years old. Replenishing and re-balancing fluctuating hormone levels can make all the difference in our emotional and physical well being.
The goal of bio-identical hormones is to most closely match what is naturally produced in your body, so your body “sees” these hormones as itself, not as a foreign chemical like a drug.
Dr. Murphy uses the lowest dose necessary method with hormone replacement. She seeks to optimize your body’s own hormone production via nutritional factors, stress management treatments, herbs, etc. and does not want to shut down your body’s natural hormone production by giving hormones doses that are too high or beyond physiological limits. She utilizes the lowest dose necessary to alleviate your symptoms, optimize your body’s functioning and make you feel great.
Dr. Murphy will measure your levels of testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, thyroid hormones, DHEA, cortisol, and HGH, to determine which levels are less than optimal, then she will customize a treatment program to balance these essential hormones to get your body back to optimal functioning.
In women, bio-identical hormones can ease breast tenderness, headaches, anxiety and irritability, mood swings, anxiety, hot flashes, poor sleep, depression, loss of focus, decrease or lack of sex drive, and inability to function normally. Hormone section – Studies have shown that use of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can reduce a woman’s risk of developing heart disease, osteoporosis, and memory loss.
For men, low testosterone can lead to fatigue, loss of muscle mass and strength, low libido, erectile dysfunction and/or depression. Replenishing lost testosterone can often produce dramatic improvements in a man’s physical, sexual and emotional health.
FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE /
Are Your Lab Tests Really Normal?
A functional medicine approach to lab testing assessment is crucial in order to detect early indicators of functional disturbance in the body. The conventional medical model waits until there is more definitive evidence of organ or tissue failure – when it is much more difficult to restore healthy functioning of that organ or tissue.
In addition to diagnosing regular pathology and disease states, Dr. Murphy assesses for functional imbalances in the body on a physiological, biochemical, and metabolic level. Dr. Murphy will review any recent blood work you have had done, and even if it is considered in the “normal range,” there may be components that are “abnormal” according to the “tighter normal range” she requires to ascertain optimal body functioning. Using “optimal lab value ranges” can help detect abnormal body physiology, patterns of dysfunction, and nutrient deficiencies earlier before greater dysfunction or disease develops.
Additionally, Dr. Murphy may recommend more comprehensive testing and/or non-conventional/ alternative lab testing be done in order to gain a greater perspective on your health state and parameters that may be disturbing your body’s optimal function and putting your body at risk for progressing towards a more severe disease state eventually.
Dr. Murphy practices 5 Element acupuncture, that looks to treat the whole person and not simply the symptom.
The five elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water exist in each of us and their balanced connection allows the body to fully function properly. Any imbalance becomes the root cause of illness of the body, mind, and spirit.
By determining which of the Five Elements is not aligned and primarily treating that element, one can move forward towards radiant health.
