Neural Prolotherapy
Dr. Dawn Gareau, ND

Neural Prolotherapy is an effective treatment for chronic pain and injuries to joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles.

KneePain

Neural Prolotherapy (NPT) was developed by the clinical observations of Dr. John Lyftogt MD in Christchurch, New Zealand. His experience of injecting dextrose solutions into affected areas of inflamed nerves have shown to assist in the repair of connective tissue and dramatically reduce pain levels in a very short period of time.

There is compelling scientific evidence that nerves just below the skin are responsible for inflammation of the connective tissue and of surrounding areas. Inflammation of nerves are known to be related to osteoarthritis.
Clinical observations and large case studies have shown that NPT effectively reverses ‘neurogenic inflammation’ and resolves nerve and joint pain.

Dr. Dawn Gareau has extensive background in NPT injections and has studied directly under the supervision of Dr. John Lyftogt, and continues to master his techniques to treat sport injuries and to manage chronic pain symptoms.

The Importance of Detoxifying the Body
By Dr. Dawn Gareau, ND

Toxic overload in our bodies are often overlooked as a cause to many health issues. A build up of toxic agents in the body overtime affect the removal and clearance of these chemicals causing a backup in the liver, lungs, kidney’s and skin which are the main detoxifying organs in our bodies.

Where do these toxins come from?

  1. Foods – plastics, estrogen-like chemicals, nitrates (from deli meats), artificial colours/sweeteners.
  2. Environment – polluted air and water, chemical detergents, car exhaust, chlorine from swimming pools, PCB’s, heavy metals and pesticides.
  3. Microbials – fungal infections (eg. candidiasis), bacterial/fungal and parasites.

Signs and Symptoms from possible toxic overload:

  • 1st stage: chronic fatigue, weight gain, water retention, foggy head, restless sleep, night sweating, irritation.
  • 2nd stage: chronic inflammation (eg. Arthritis), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), depression, constipation, chronic infections (eg. candidiasis, flu/cold), insomnia, lower libido, infertility.
  • 3rd stage: chronic metabolic diseases (eg. Diabetes, cardiovascular, hepatitis, cancers, autoimmune conditions)

Key Detoxification Nutrients:

  • B-vitamins, macro- and micro- nutrients help to support the body during convalesce and detoxification.
  • Anti-inflammatory phyto-nutrients such as curcumin, quercetin, rosemary, peppermint, green tea & bilberry which help to protect against free radicals.
  • L-glutamine and probiotics helps to support the lining of the gastrointestinal tract which, prevents toxins from entering the blood stream. This helps to decrease an Immune response to possible food allergies.
