IWG's Approach to
Respiratory

“I feel like I can finally breathe again.”

Hear from one of our patients

The patient presented with a history of respiratory illness that began in 2009. He had seen several physicians, naturopaths, and specialists with little to no improvement. He had an extensive history of prednisone and other steroids that only suppressed the problem. He was looking to support the root cause of the infection to eliminate the symptoms for good.

He had an extensive history of prednisone and other steroids that only suppressed the problem. He was looking to support the root cause of the infection to eliminate the symptoms for good.

IWG’s custom approach

This patient underwent a custom supplement protocol specified in his autonomic response testing that supported elimination of infections while also boosting his immune system. He also underwent chiropractic care to open up the rib cage and allow for full expansion of the lungs. Lastly, he utilized the detox spa for infrared sauna and ionic detoxification foot baths to expedite the process.

What we found to be the root cause

The patient was found to have several bacterial strains affecting the respiratory system, including the bacteria associated with Lyme Disease and it’s co-infections. He was also found to have exposure to specific molds that cause a biofilm to develop within the lungs. He also presented with elevated inflammatory markers and a suppressed immune system that made it difficult for him to eradicate the infections.

FUN FACT:

Breathing capacity is not only affected by internal stress but can also be affected by physical stress.  We often evaluate the rib cage and collar bone function and if it is playing a role in breathing restrictions.  The rib cage is often effected from impact sports (football, Hockey), car accidents with a seatbelt on, and falls (skiing, snowboarding, etc,)

1 Month results:

The patient was feeling overall improvement in his digestion and energy levels.

3 month results:

The patient was experiencing 1-2 week periods of relief of his respiratory symptoms, which was the first time within 7 years. In collaboration with his primary care physician, he began to lessen his respiratory medications.

6 month results:

The  patient was finally sleeping without having trouble with breathing, thus improving his energy and mental clarity. His coughing has diminished and he is feeling like he can finally breathe again.  

12 Month Results:

Pending.

Integrative Medicine is the Evolution of Medicine

Let’s be honest, Medicine needs a face lift.  Our goal at IWG is to evolve medicine to be comprehensive, specific, and integrative.  It starts with looking at the whole person and the whole picture.  The measuring of someones physical stress, internal (biochemical) stress, their emotional and energetic stress allows you to provide the proper diagnosis and the most tailored approach to their health care.  The understanding of the integration of our mental state, our physical symptoms, and our internal environment allows for true and sustainable healing.
