We Are Different

Are you sick and tired of taking pills, using potions and lotions, all the nasty side-effects, and of doctors that tell you “its all in your head’?’

Fibromyalgia is a thief that is robbing you of living a happy, full, healthy life. Many patients have told me that it is like living with the flu 24/7.

We are offering an exciting new drug free approach for fibromyalgia at Lake Norman Health & Wellness.

We Are Different Because Our Treatment Works!

You are on this website because you or someone you love is suffering from Fibromyalgia.  You are seeking answers to the puzzle.

At Lake Norman Health & Wellness, we treat you metabolically and neurologically!  We offer a metabolic and brain based therapy that focuses on the TRUE CAUSE of Fibromyalgia!

Our treatment works …. by using specific metabolic and neurological protocols!

Specific Metabolic Testing and Treatments

Sensitivity Testing: to determine if you have a sensitivity to gluten (wheat, rye, oats, and barley), milk, eggs, yeast, and soy. If you are sensitive to ANY of these food groups, it could be making your symptoms worse as it will increase inflammation in your brain and throughout your body!

Here are some of the symptoms of these sensitivities:

  • Chronic pain or fatigue
  • Frequent indigestion
  • Bloated after eating
  • Frequent loose bowel movements
  • Constipation
  • Mouth ulcers or sores
  • Vomit often

The only way to find out if you are suffering from any of these sensitivities is to run these tests.

 

Complete Blood Panels

We also run complete blood panels by using specific blood tests such as:

#1: A thyroid panel

#2: A complete metabolic panel (CMP)

#3: A lipid panel

#4: A CBC (complete blood chemistry with auto differential)

We can assess your thyroid, adrenal glands, liver, kidneys, red/white blood cells and gut function with the above lab tests.

All can be affected with chronic health conditions. By addressing any problems with your thyroid, adrenal glands, blood chemistry, or gut function, we can help you to heal faster. The CMP also allows us to check your blood glucose levels since glucose and oxygen are needed by the brain to function properly.

Glucose values (12 hour fasting):

Normal: 85-99

Hypoglycemic: 84 or less

Insulin resistance/pre-diabetes: 100-126

Diabetes: 127 or higher

The 4 priorites are:

1) Anemia

2) Blood sugar/ASI

3) GI/liver

4) Fatty acid metabolism

The patient with insulin resistence or pre-diabetes has as much chance at developing neuropathy as the diabetic patient.

Adrenal Stress Index (ASI) :

You can test the adrenal glands with a test called an Adrenal Stress Index. This is a salivary test much like DNA testing.  The adrenal glands sit right above the kidneys and they are your “stress” organs meaning that they react to stress. If the patient has been or are currently under stress, this test is a must!

IF THE PATIENT SUFFERS FROM INSOMNIA AND/OR DIABETES, THIS TEST IS A MUST! IT WILL MEASURE THEIR CORTISOL LEVELS.

 

Immune Panels—EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!:

Your fibromyalgia could be caused by an auto immune condition. Your immune system could be attacking your nervous system. This is why the immune panels are so important.

There are two parts to the immune system, TH1 and TH2.

IL- 2 and TNF-alpha = TH1

TH1 is T-cells. T-cells are the army that attacks and cleans up afterword. (Helper T-cells, Suppressor T-cells, NKC, regulatory

T-cells, and macrophages.

IL-4 and IL-10 = TH2

TH2 is B-cells. B-cells make anti-bodies. They tell T-cells what to kill. If the testing comes back with a high B-cell count, the patient is TH2 dominant.

T and B Lymphocyte & Natural Killer Cell Panel

IL-2 ,TNF-alpha, IL-4, IL-10

Natural Killer Cell Activity

You will want to determine if there is an active antigen or dysregulation.

Active antigens are parasites, bacteria, virus, mold, yeast, fungi, protozoan, foods, chemicals, and heavy metals.

The best indicator for an active antigen as the cause of the patient’s abnormal dominance is the “Helper/Suppresor” ratio on the T & B cell panel. (also called “CD4:CD8” ratio).

The closer to 2.5 the ratio is (or if above that), the more likely it is that you’re dealing with an antigen.

If the ratio is below 1.2, then you are most likely dealing with a dysregulation problem.

 

Intestinal Permeability:

This test is used to determine if the patient suffers from leaky gut syndrome (LGS).

LGS or Leaky gut syndrome describes a condition of altered or damaged bowel lining, caused by antibioticstoxins, poor diet, parasites or infection can lead to increased permeability of the gut wall to toxins, microbes, undigested food, waste or larger than normal macromolecules. It has been proposed that these substances affect the body directly, while others postulate an immune reaction to these substances.

 

HORMONE PANELS:

We can check hormone panels to determine if the patient suffers from low testosterone in males or low estrogen/progesterone levels in females. Symptoms related to decreased hormone levels may include depression, fatigue, mental fogginess, mood swings, hot flashes, sweating attacks, weight gain, and decreased physical stamina.

SPECIFIC NEUROLOGICAL TESTING AND TREATMENTS:

  1. Oxygen therapy: Oxygen is fuel for your brain and nervous system. Your brain and nervous system need two things to survive…..fuel and activation. Fuel comes in the form of OXYGEN AND GLUCOSE. By using oxygen, we will help you heal faster. By using exercise with oxygen therapy (EWOT), we can increase firing to brain. By increasing firing of brain, we help MANY chronic conditions.
  2. Brain-Based Therapy (BBT): We use specific brain-based therapy such as: Vibration Therapy.  Vibration fires the back part of the brain called the cerebellum. One of the functions of the cerebellum is control of the spinal muscle.  We may also use sensory stimulation, corrective traction and massage stimulation to increase firing of your brain.  Light Therapy: We use the Healthlight Pulsed Infrared Light Therapy in our office which is the most effective light therapy unit on the market. Light therapy helps heal tissues, including nerve tissue.

ATM2 Active Therapeutic Movements: Active Therapeutic Movements, or ATMs help stabilize muscles into a totally pain free movement and then allows the brain to retrain the muscles to stay in these healthy pain free positions, allowing the patient to see very fast and effective relief of pain in just minutes.

Non-surgical Spinal Decompression: NSSD creates a negative disc pressure and helps to remove pressure off of the nerve. It also provides a slow stretch of the muscles which fires up the spinal cord to increase firing of brain.

Once we have run the necessary tests to determine your specific condition, we can successfully treat you via proper neurological and all natural nutritional protocols.

 

Dr. Akiba Green Can Help!

I am here to tell you that there is new hope for you, thanks to our drug-free and natural protocols!

Our approach is revolutionary in that it addresses the SOURCE of Fibromyalgia by using advanced lab measurements and a comprehensive functional brain-based protocol!

Lake Norman Health & Wellness is one of the only clinics in Charlotte, NC to use a combined functional metabolic and neurological protocol that deals with the TRUE causes of Fibromyalgia.
