What Makes Us Different?
Our office is probably
a lot different than any other doctor's office that you may have been to in the past.
What makes us different is our Neuro-Metabolic approach to chronic health
conditions, which leaves no stone unturnded in determining the exact cause
of your health problem.
We start by doing a functional neurological examination to establish the health of your
nervous system, and to pinpoint problem areas that may need neurologic
treatment to restore proper firing in the brain, improve disc health, and
remove nerve interference.
Neurologic treatments include brain based therapies such as vibration
therapy, auditory stimulation, olfactory stimulation, and caloric
stimulation to increase the frequency of firing in certain areas of the
brain. For instance, vibration therapy is used to fire the back part
of the brain called the cerebellum, which is responsible for control of
Our Neurologic treatments may include gentle spinal adjusting to correct
nerve interference, and to restore proper spinal motion and balance.
If you have disc problems such as bulging or herniated disc, or possibly a
degenerative disc, Non-Surgical Spinal
may be utilized to help heal the disc.
Our metabolic treatments are based on specific lab panels. By doing a
comprehensive blood test which includes a thyroid panel, a complete
metabolic panel, a lipid panel, and a complete blood chemistry with
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.
Stool samples will help to determine if you have any sensitivities to
gluten, milk, eggs, soy, or yeast. If you are sensitive to any of
these foods, it could be making your condition worse by increasing
inflammation in your brain, and throughout your body.
An adrenal stress index test is performed by using saliva samples.
Your adrenal glands are your "stress" organs, meaning that they react to
stress. If you have been or currently are under stress, or if you
suffer from insomnia, this test is a must to measure cortisol levels in your
body. Cortisol levels can be corrected via specific nutritional
We may test to see if you have an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune
disease is where your immune system identifies its own body parts as an
invader and starts to attack it. Our immune testing includes
Lymphocyte Sub-population analysis, Cytokine panels, Natural Killer cell
activity, and thyroid antibodies (TPO and TBG).
The immune panels give us an in depth picture as to what is exactly
happening with your immune system. If you are suffering from an auto-immune disorder, it trumps
everything and it must be the first thing to be addressed.
Our testing may include an evaluation for intestinal permeability, or leaky
gut syndrome. Inflammation and damage to the gut lining can be caused
by antibiotics, toxins, poor diet, parasites, or infection can lead to
increased permeability of the gut lining.
Additional metabolic testing may include measuring neurotransmitters in the
brain, hormone panels to evaluate testerone, estrogen and other hormone
levels, and food sensitivity testing.
As you can see, ours is a comprehensive approach that leaves no stone
unturned in identifying the exact cause of your health condition.
Once we have completed the necessary testing to determine the specifics of
your condition, we can successfully treat you via proper neurologic
therapies and precise nutritional protocols.
Ask Yourself the Following Questions:
1. How has your condition affected your job, relationships,
finances, family or other activities?
2. What has it cost you in time, money, happiness, sleep?
3. Where do you picture yourself in the next one to three years if this problem
is not taken care of?
4. What is it worth to you if we could improve your condition?
If you’re really serious about the possibility that there could be an
alternative treatment for you or your loved one, call our office at
(216) 236-6335, and tell the staff person that you are interested in setting up
a free screening with Dr. Simokovich or Dr. Galati.
