  • Hot flashes and night sweats

  • Low libido
  • Memory lapses and trouble concentrating
  • Weight gain
  • Headaches
  • Heavy periods, or change in menstrual cycles
  • Infertility

8) Intravenous Therapy:

When the body is suffering from chronic illness, digestive concerns or stress, it is not always able to produce the energy required to heal itself. Taking oral supplements are not enough at this point since the digestive system cannot absorb nutrients at a high enough concentration to allow the healing to occur.

With IV treatments, vitamins and nutrients are directly delivered into the bloodstream. This allows nutrients to entre the cells passively, with little or no effort from the body also avoiding absorption issues. As your body heals and gains back its strength, your cells regain their ability to actively absorb vitamins and minerals more efficiently. IV treatments can be helpful for a variety of conditions.

This includes:

  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Chronic Fatigue/Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Stress
  • Decreased Immune Function, poor wound healing
  • Crohn’s/ Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Adjunctive Cancer Therapy
  •  Anti-aging

9. Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET):

an innovative treatment for allergies that is based on a holistic approach and is completely painless and non-invasive. This method can be used safely on anyone from infants to elderly. It combines Eastern philosophy and acupuncture principles with applied kinesiology (Muscle Response Testing) for the removal of any kind of allergies. According to Devi Nambudripad, founder of NAET, an allergen is any substance that causes blockage in any of 12 acupuncture channels. Different symptoms may manifest depending on which organ channel has been blocked by the allergen. For example, if pollen, animal dander or any food substance causes blockage in the lung channel the person could experience asthma or respiratory difficulties when he/she comes in contact with that particular allergen. These blockages lead to qi or energy imbalances in the body that can lead to a diminished state of health in one or more organ systems. Undiagnosed allergies can often be the cause of common chronic diseases, which when left untreated can have serious implications. NAET allows the body to regain perfect balance and function normally by removing the blockages from the energy channels.
