HOMEOPATHY

LOOK YEARS YOUNGER

Homeopathy was developed in the late 18th and early 19th century, and was widely practiced in the United States until the mid-20th century. It remains in widespread use in Europe, Latin America and India, and is again attracting attention in this country, in part because its effectiveness has at length been demonstrated by scientific studies and possibly explained in scientific terms, and in part because its safety and cost compare very favorably with the now-standard model of specialized disease diagnosis and hospital-oriented surgical and drug treatment of illness. The World Health Organization has cited homeopathy as one of the alternative methods that should be integrated worldwide with conventional medicine for optimal health care in the 21st century.

The homeopathic method, named from Greek words meaning “similar illness”, was developed by Samuel Hahnemann, a noted German medical school professor who became disillusioned with the often drastic and generally ineffective drug and surgical treatments of the day, and who in fact abandoned the practice of medicine and worked as a chemist and translator of medical and scientific books. This experience caused him to read much of the world’s medical literature and to develop great understanding of medicinal chemistry. The Peruvian tree bark cinchona was known to cure malaria, but Hahnemann disagreed with the prevailing theories as to why it worked. He decided that the best way to understand the effects of medicines was to take them, and when he ingested cinchona bark twice a day, he developed all the symptoms of malaria, which subsided when he stopped taking the cinchona. This led him to suggest that a substance that caused symptoms in large doses might combat them if taken in smaller doses, and later to propose that all recovery from disease was due to the actions of a vital force or energy that is present in all living things and attempts to heal illness and injury, and that such small doses of medicine could stimulate that force or energy to curative action. He further suggested that medicines are safer in small doses and that the best dose can be determined by experiment, and that illnesses are in many ways unique to an individual because of family history, physical constitution and life circumstances; these ideas have become the foundation of modern pharmacology and holistic medicine. Hahnemann and his disciples proceeded to study several thousand naturally-occurring remedies, vegetable, animal and mineral, and to establish a “repertory” of illnesses, circumstances and types of patients in which specific medicines might be effective at very low and therefore very safe doses.

Holistic & Alternative

MedSave Clinic is pleased to announce its expansion in the direction of holistic, alternative, integrative or complementary medicine. All of these more or less interchangeable terms refer to medical practices and methods that extend or complement the current medical approach of diagnostic testing to establish a diagnosis of disease, followed by drug treatment or surgery. In addition, these styles of medical practice approach the patient as a whole and unique individual, and attempt to help the patient achieve health rather then just absence of or freedom from a disease. We have been oriented since opening in 2007 toward Urgent Care, the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening, in a setting that may be more convenient and comfortable than the standard physician’s office or hospital emergency department. We have also offered Pain Management services, focusing on the evaluation of painful conditions and the treatment of chronic pain for which curative surgery or effective physical procedures cannot be offered; in practice, this means the use of medications for pain treatment and often involves the use of pain medications for which regular and careful followup is required, in order to assure safe use of these medications and to comply with increasingly strict state and federal laws. Finally, we have been certified to offer Addiction Medicine treatment with Suboxone, an opioid medication that has been approved for the outpatient treatment of narcotic addiction. We will of course continue to offer these services at our offices in Canal Winchester and Worthington.

Holistic or alternative medicine is sometimes called “natural” medicine, because it makes use of medicines derived from nature and seeks to facilitate and stimulate the body’s own remarkable ability to heal itself of disease and injury. It also seeks to help balance or harmonize patient’s lives, and to help integrate our inner lives and outer experiences, so that the gift of life can be enjoyed and utilized to the fullest. There are many branches of this kind of medicine, which is both very new and very old, and embraces both out own culture and healing traditions and those of other places and times. We will begin with homeopathic and naturopathic medicine. Homeopathy teaches that recovery from illness is the result of the body’s own vital force or energy, and that these can be activated with very small doses of natural remedies that in large doses cause the ailments they are used to treat. Naturopathic medicine uses herbs, oils and nutritional supplements to assist the body and spirit in healing themselves.

LIVER DISEASE & TREATMENT

Fatty Liver Disease

Fatty liver is the most common liver disease. An Estimated 30 Million Americans have fatty liver disease. Fatty liver is a diagnosis of exclusion which means we have to eliminate other types of liver disease. It is related to metabolic disease, which means diabetes, family history of diabetes, a high triglyceride count, hypertension and obesity.

Treatment at this time involves diet and exercise; there are no good pharmacologic therapies for fatty liver, however, we may be participating in a few clinical trials of certain medications. Our strongest recommendation is that the patient exercise, which includes walking 30 min a day 3x a week.

Liver Cancer

We treat all types of Liver cancer here at the Pasadena Liver Center, with a focus on cancers related to cirrhosis.  We take a multi-disciplinary approach and work closely with the liver transplant team, radiologists and the USC liver team so that we can treat your liver disease and cancer at the same time.  By taking this approach, we can ensure that the most effective therapies are being used, using an evidence based approach.

 
 

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Trigger Point Injections

Trigger point injections are an effective treatment modality for inactivating trigger points and providing prompt relief of symptoms from myofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is a common painful muscle disorder characterized by myofascial trigger points. This syndrome is distinct from fibromyalgia syndrome, which involves multiple tender points, though the two pain syndromes may be concurrent.
Myofascial trigger points are a major cause of pain and dysfunction. They produce pain focally and in a referred pattern and often occur in conjunction with chronic musculoskeletal pain disorders. Various modalities for the treatment of trigger points include spray and stretch, ultrasound, manipulative therapy, and trigger point injections.

Not all trigger points require injection or needling. Many active trigger points will respond to physical therapy, especially in the early stages of trigger point formation. However, for chronic trigger points, trigger point injection and needling is an effective treatment.

Indications

Trigger point injections are indicated for patients who have symptoms and examination findings consistent with active trigger points. Latent trigger points are clinically asymptomatic and do not require treatment. Trigger points should be limited in number and should be appropriate for injection.

Conditions involving widespread pain complaints, such as fibromyalgia or endocrine disorder, are not suitable for injections. Treatment is indicated for endocrine diagnoses or fibromyalgia before trigger point injections are considered. In addition, the finding of tenderness alone is not an indication for trigger point injection, because patients with fibromyalgia may also have myofascial pain trigger points.
When indications for injections are being considered, it is not always necessary to have the classical clinical examination findings of a taut band with local twitch response and referred pain pattern. Within the total clinical context, the finding of tender points in typical trigger point locations that coincide with the patient’s pain and a “jump sign” is sufficient to justify trigger point injections.

Contraindications

Trigger points should not be injected in the presence of systemic or local infection. Injection of patients with bleeding disorders or patients on anticoagulation must be done with proper medical evaluation and control.
Avoid injections in the pregnant patient or patients who feel or appear to be ill. Use precautions in patients who are at high risk for infection, including debilitated patients, patients with diabetes mellitus, or patients on steroids.
Other contraindications include allergy to anesthetic agents, acute muscle trauma, and extreme fear of needles.

Technical Considerations

Pain from myofascial trigger points is often treated by needling, with or without injection, though the evidence is inconclusive on whether this is effective. A literature review examined seven studies that assessed the effects of dry needling. One study concluded that direct dry needling was superior to no intervention; two studies comparing direct dry needling to needling elsewhere in the muscle produced contradictory results; and four studies used a placebo control and were included in a meta-analysis.

Upon analysis of these studies, needling was not found to be significantly superior to placebo; however, marked statistical heterogeneity was present. Thus, this review found limited evidence deriving from only a single study that deep needling directly into myofascial trigger points has an overall treatment effect when compared with standardized care.

In a 2013 systematic review and meta-analysis of 12 randomized, controlled trials designed to assess the effectiveness of dry needling for upper-quarter myofascial pain (MPS), Kietrys et al reported the following findings:

Evidence from three studies of dry needling vs placebo suggested that dry needling could immediately decrease pain in patients with upper-quarter MPS; there was an overall effect in favor of dry needling

Evidence from two studies of dry needling vs placebo suggested that dry needling could decrease pain after 4 weeks in patients with upper-quarter MPS; the impact of this decrease was limited by the wide confidence interval for the overall effect

Studies of dry needling vs other treatments yielded highly heterogeneous results; evidence from two studies suggested that lidocaine injection may be more effective in reducing pain than dry needling at 4 weeks

On the basis of these findings, the authors of the meta-analysis recommended dry needling, as compared with sham or placebo, for decreasing pain immediately after treatment and at 4 weeks in patients with upper-quarter MPS.

 
 

Several mechanisms have been suggested as possible explanations for the inactivation of trigger points by injection, including disruption of abnormal muscle fibers or nerve endings that make up the sensory and motor aspects of the feedback loop, which may be responsible for trigger point activity. Needling may cause a local release of intracellular potassium, which may depolarize and thus disrupt nerve conduction.
Injected fluid may dilute any nerve-sensitizing substances to reduce irritability and inactivate any neural feedback mechanisms. Procaine has a local vasodilatation effect that increases circulation at the trigger point, increasing the local removal of metabolites and increasing local energy supply. Further, a local anesthetic may interrupt feedback mechanisms between the trigger point and the central nervous system, limiting high frequency discharges transmitted by the nerve. Depending on the anesthetic, focal necrosis may destroy the trigger point.
