Integrated Medical Center (IMC) represents the best in allopathic and nutritional (functional) medicine for our patient's health care needs. Founded by John E. Stauch MD., Ph.D., noted nutritionist/ immunologist. Our physicians Manjit Bajwa, MD, and Gary B. Clark, MD., MPA ,utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. Nutritional medicine is fast becoming an integrate part of the way people chose to treat their condition. Because of increased research in nutritional biochemistry around the world, nutrition is playing a greater roll in modern medicine. Testing for nutritional deficiencies allow us to treat the cause and not the symptoms, leading to a reduction in medications. Prescriptive drugs can create, chemical imbalances, nutrient deficiencies and side effects. By using a nutritional support program, the healing process is greatly enhanced. Doctors assist and encourage the patient, but people must change their life styles to get well; they learn to treat the cause by healing their bodies naturally, relying on GOD'S creation (herbs and nutritional supplements).
Our staff consists of medically trained and certified professionals. With many years of clinical nutrition.

EQUIPTED Our clinic utilizes its wealth of sophisticated investigational and therapeutic equipment and its own up-to date laboratory to assist it's staff in providing and monitoring quality health care.


CHALLENGE OF LIFE
Living a long, happy and fulfilling life, with quality health, may be a great challenge; but, it can be done. IMC can provide you with valuable nutritional health care through our specialized testing and diagnostic tools. Our advanced expertise with biochemical deficiencies, allow us to treat the cause naturally, instead of treating the symptoms only, with pharmaceuticals. Adjusting your medical program to your individual needs, allows us to help you to overcome the challenges of life.
OUR TOXIC ENVIRONMENT
Dealing with our health conditions, means dealing with the many environmental and food toxins that have contaminated our liver and lymphatic system and have collected in other cells of our body. These toxins contribute to many degenerative disorders. Allergic reactions from organic and inorganic compounds over burden the liver. In time, these toxins can cause severe external reactions. This can cause chronic fatigue syndrome and other problems. The first step in getting well, is to detoxify the body without causing hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and putting the body into a starvation mode. The first 5 days of water fasts can cause these problems, hindering toxin release and severe fatigue. By using the Ultra Clear( liquid food fast and food modification program) plus adding a herbs/nutrients to detoxification program, we have eliminated these problems.
MEDICAL DILEMMA
Much of our medical community today has very little nutritional training. Non integrated physicians commonly treat the symptoms, using only pharmaceuticals. Because many disorders have a underlying cause that goes unnoticed to the untrained eye, many conditions are mistreated. The use of pharmaceuticals has changed in westernized medicine. We used to put people on pharmaceutical for short periods of time. Now we are combining many drugs together and using them for many years. Most of these drugs have not been tested together for long term side effects. Because of this change in medicine, we have changed. By reducing the number of medications and there duration, and using nutrition to treat the cause, we have overcome a medical dilemma that is causing many side effects and unnecessary procedures. Noninvasive procedures, like Doppler's, Thermography and Heidleberg (gastric emptying ) test, are not used as much. These can reduce expensive and dangerous tests. There is growing scientific and medical support in the field of nutrition, allowing the patient an option for their medical needs (integrated medicine) . Integrating nutrition with medications, allow the body to eliminate or greatly reduce side effects and speed up the healing process.
PROPER DIAGNOSIS
When dealing with disease, proper diagnosis is so important. So often we test for the wrong conditions, causing added stress-fatigue, compounding our problems. Our laboratory specializes in nutritional testing. This allows us to deal with degenerative diseases, such as, digestive disorders, diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. Testing for biochemical deficiencies, first, allows us to treat the cause, without all the side effects that accompany drug therapy. Our cardiovascular technique (infra red and ultra sound technology) allow us to evaluate the blood flow to the brain and heart, non-evasively(no cutting or ill side effects). Our pre-stroke and heart screening equipment, alert us of immediate danger; allowing for proper precautions and treatment.
TREATING THE WHOLE
  • Spiritual- dealing with the Godhead, creationism, and other belief's
  • Physical - adjusting lifestyles to enhance and rebuild the human body (weight management - exercise - detoxification - supplementation).
  • Mental - teaching ways to deal with stress caused by poor stress managementsupplementation: increasing the size and population of cells


    THERAPY and PROCEDURES

    Amino Acid - tests the plasma and urine amino acid levels. Amino acids are the building blocks of the body and control almost all functions. When the essential amino acid levels are low, poor digestion and diet are the culprits. This test is considered one of the tests that allow us to blue print you body chemistry. When the body is sick, many essential amino acids are very low. The insulin molecule is made up of many amino acids. Low levels of any amino acid will reduce the amount of insulin being made.
    Chelation -cleans arteries of atherosclerotic plague with EDTA (synthetic amino acid) in a IV solution with vitamins and minerals; 3 hour procedure; under the care of a physician and medical staff. Non-toxic, with less side effects than aspirin. This procedure safely removes the plaque through the urine. Blood and urine test are taken, to ensure good kidney function. Approved by the American Medical Association for heavy metal poison. Since arterial plaque consist of a lot of minerals (metals), arterial blockage is greatly reduced. The key to life is in the blood, (the life of the flesh is in the blood [lev.17:11] ) without it, life ceases to exist; reducing circulation lowers the quality and quantity of life. This is Americas' number one problem. Chelation therapy has become one of our most effective and valuable life enhancing treatments. By increasing the circulation and detoxifying the cells and adding nutrients back to the body, life abounds, more abundantly. Chelation has created a way to increase blood flow throughout the body and treat a variety of disorders, especially, cardiovascular disease, without the many complications seen with bypass surgery.
    See some images of treatment progression

    Echo Flow Doppler - tests arteries going to the brain by sound waves, gives a 3 color picture of blockages in the carotids; blue showing 85% - 99% blockage, yellow showing 55% - 84% blockage and red showing 0 -54% blockage. Each vessel also shows a sound graph reading, much like a EKG strip.
    Echo Cardiography - tests heart function without surgery and toxic chemicals. The study includes: valve and muscle function, ejection fraction ratio (how much blood is being ejected from the ventricle) and shortening fraction (what percent of the ventricle working), the most important mortality indicator.
    Plethysmography - tests circulation to hand and feet through ultra sound.
    Heidleberg - gastrointestinal pH analyzer. This test monitors acid levels in stomach, passage time, ulcers, mucus and enzyme activity in small intestine.
    HBO Therapy - The Hyperberic Oxygen Chamber forces the healing oxygen to damaged tissue, reducing pain from scar tissue; while speeding up healing, minimizing and reversing damage, from strokes, heart attaches and all surgeries. This chamber is a life saver. This chamber can also be effective in destroying viruses and bacteria. T-Cell levels show great improvement after 5 treatments.
    Cytotoxic - tests for 185 foods and other allergens. All foods are reviewed in 10 different microscopic fields, allowing the highest reproducible results. No other allergy test is as accurate.
    Computerized Nutritional Test - 13 point nutritional evaluation; most complete preliminary computerized evaluation.
    Hair/RBC Analysis - mineral and heavy metal test of the hair and red blood cell. This test give us a look into the past and present nutrient status.
    Live Cell Analysis - Blood is magnified by 30,000 times, giving us the ability to document your condition, monitor your progression while on treatment. The blood is the pathway to the flesh and tells all. Using this technology allows us to monitor your condition and adjust as needed. Your blood is the best place to find quick result and determine if you therapy is effective. Quick response spells maximum results.
    Vitamin/Mineral IVs - increase's immune response; like putting high octane in your engine. Increases healing time and energy levels, Even though the body is sick, it allows you to continue functioning and not miss work or become bed ridden. Helps to rebuild mineral levels: these assist in enzyme and hormone function.

    CONDITIONS TREATED

    Allergies- There are many reasons for allergies and many ways to reduce the symptoms. Building up your immune system and purifying the air and water you drink is the best way to start. If your allergies are due to foods, than most likely you are enzyme deficient. Taking a cyto-toxic blood test will tell you what foods to avoid. There are other allergy tests but none with the reproducible accuracy. Checking your digestion for a hydrochloric acid and pancreatic deficiency can eliminate many partially digested foods that can cause food allergies. The best test for this is a Heidleberg ( gastric ph monitor) test.

    Allergy supplement's- AOX15 antioxidant formula, Vitamin C, Trace-mins, Di-Pan9, Nettles, Amino Galms, garlic/onions, echinacea, Ultra Flora Plus(lactobacillus & bifidus) and lots of purified water. Start with one product each day until symptoms are gone.
    Return to Top
    Arthritis- There are more than 100 different types of arthritis. The two main type are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, both cause pain and stiffness in the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis also causes inflammation and heat to affected areas. Arthritis is caused by acids and waste matter in the body, which eventually become solidified and lock the joint. This condition is caused and aggravated by improper diet. Some of the common foods involved are eggs, bread, milk, meat, salt, sugar, etc., because they cause arthritic calcification. The use of extremely hard water (generally of twelve or more grains in hardness) will often accentuate an arthritic condition where softer water will help relieve it. Increasing circulation through exercise and diet are a must. Cleansing your body and liver of fungus, viruses and high bacteria counts. Increasing digestive enzymes, Herbal Aids makes all the difference. DMSO therapy is most effective. External treatments that are very helpful are: No Pain- capsaicum, DMSO roll-on, Yucca Tea and other herbal preparations, including M.S.M.

    Asthma- The spasms in the muscles surrounding the bronchi, which constrict the outward passage of stale air. Typical symptoms are coughing, wheezing, a tight chest, and difficult breathing. The muscular spasms, together with increased mucus, are brought on by histamine produced by the body's immune system during an allergic response. Doing a Cyto-Toxic test and purifying your Air and water with a Living Air purifier will greatly reduce the allergens in your body. Asthma supplement's and a detoxification program to remove mucous from the bronchioles are recommended.

    Athletics- Sports in America has become very taxing on the human body. With depleting nutrients in our soil and new processing techniques, our bodies are not adequately supplied with nutrients to handle the extra burden from sports. Using specialized tests that analyze the amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, we can understand the proper nutrient program for our bodies. Most nutritional organizations do not test these specific nutrients and can not properly fine tune your body for sports. The increased calorie diet that most trainers put their atlethes on causes more problems in the long run. Allergies stem from digestive inadequacies due to over burdening of the digestive organs. These problems can be avoided with proper counseling and testing. How do you know? Ask these questions. How well do you handle chemicals around you? How many food do you have to avoid? How are you during allergy season?

    Cancer- Cancer is believed to be largely preventable. The causes of most cancers of the oral cavity and pharynx, esophagus, liver, larynx, lung, and uterine cervix are now known. Risk factors also have been identified for other cancers, but the search continues to clarify, the factors that account for the bulk of malignancies in the United States and around the world. Most current information on risk factors for cancer have come from case-control studies assessing various characteristics and exposures of patients with individual cancers and from cohort studies determining rates of cancer among groups exposed to particular agents suspected of carcinogenic potential. The leads for these epidemiological investigations often have arisen from descriptive studies of cancer rates and statistics and from alert clinical observations.
    Often marked trends over time suggest that environmental factors induce most cancers, perhaps through interaction with host susceptibility traits. Cancer cures are available but, are not backed by double blind studies. The scientific community has no cures for cancer, but the American Medical Association still treats cancer patients with radiation and chemo-therapy, like a cure all: if it was any other therapy that was not a money maker, it would not be approved! Articles to read. The War on Cancer. Cancer therapies: DMSO/VITAMIN IV's, ENZYME'S (oral, im., rectal), OZONE (auto-hemo, iv, rectal insulflation ),
    CHELATION, DETOX, ESSIAC TEA, SHARK and BOVINE CARTILGE, MAXOGENOL, and MORE! Cancer protocol:

    Chronic Fatigue (CFIDS)- Lack of energy/vitality, one of the most common complaints today. Fatigue that is constant day in/out can be caused by a host of problems, starting with nutrient deficiency, body toxicity (lymph, intestine and blood ) and hormone imbalance. These people mostly likely have a low cytochrome P-450 enzyme system and a bad digestive system, which leads to many food allergies and much toxicity. This condition is accompanied by a low immunity and many of the people have high levels of Candida , Epstein Bar, and Cytomegali virus. Using Live Blood Cell Analysis, Heidleberg digestive test, Hyperberic Oxygen, Vitamin/DMSO IV therapy, with our special liver, lymph and intestine detoxification program, CFIDS is a thing of the past.

    Cold and Flu- The cold is a contagious infection of the upper respiratory tract caused any number of viruses. The major incubation sights are located at the top of the sinus cavity, above the bridge of the nose. This cavity is the perfect temperature for viruses and bacteria to grow. These viruses are transmitted to the sinus cavity by the touching of the nose by the fingers, over and over, until the population is large enough to take hold. Other areas where viruses and bacteria like to grow are in the throat and stomach. The virus or bacteria start to rapidly multiply over a short period of time. The immune system send out lots of white blood cells to over come the disease. This reaction will raise the body temperature and cause a fever. Using medicine to lower the temperature is not the best thing to do. If these viruses and bacteria's are not treated with a special sinus and throat formula, and immune supplements they will spread and turn into an infection. This infection can move to the bronchioles and then the lungs, causing a life threatening situation.

    Cardiovascular- Circulation: "The life of the flesh is in the blood" Lev.17:11. This is the most profound statement made on human health. As the blood goes, so do you. Protecting the vascular system is the important thing we can do. This will keep degenerative diseases away. If you already have cardiovascular disease and you are told that you need Bypass surgery or Angioplasty, and you have no other choice, don't believe them. Bypass and Angioplasty are two of the biggest money makers in our medical industry, today. Surgery doesn't correct the problem, it just deals with the symptoms. Chelation Therapy is a IV therapy that uses EDTA (a synthetic amino acid ) in a vitamin solution. This procedure is approve by the FDA, but is not covered by insurance for arteriosclerosis. This procedure takes the plaque out through the urine, SAFELY! The results are documented by color Carotid Doppler image and an Echocardiogram.

    Diabetes: A degenerative disease, except for juvenile diabetes. Can be traced to a derangement of the function of the pancreas gland. High levels of sugar and refined carbohydrates has created a high demand on our trace minerals. These minerals are needed to help metabolize the excess glucose from our foods. An increased demand of pancreatic enzymes because of a high calorie intake has created a double damaging problem for the pancreas. Over use and under nourishment, along with a hormonal imbalance are major reason for diabetes. Overcoming diabetes will take time and testing. You will need a Hair Analysis (TMA), Heidleberg test, Hormone screening, Thyroid, Liver/Bowl profile. A diabetic diet and supplement program, along with 8 glasses of water a day.

    Immune Problems: These disorders range from HIV to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Most all these can be cured or greatly helped by nutritional therapies. IV therapies like: vitamins and minerals with high levels of Vitamin C, DMSO, Hydrogen Peroxide, do wonders for killing the bad and strengthening the good. HBO therapy enhances the oxygen level of the body, creating a bad environment for virus, bacteria and fungus growth. Detoxification, using herbs and special food formulas, allow the body to remove the toxins and the dead cells from the other therapies.

    Hair, Skin and Teeth Problems: These are the signs of malnutrition and a digestive disorder. These conditions must be addressed by doing a Heidleberg test, Amino Acid test and a Hair analysis. Correcting the digestion and adding the deficient nutrients, will normally correct the problems.

    Sexual Problems: Is your love life slipping away? Is the excitement less frequent and satisfying? If these are your problems, there is hope! Most sexual problems are due to lack of circulation and poor nutrient reserves, causing hormone deficiencies. By using Chelation Therapy, hormonal therapy and nutrient therapy, most problems are corrected.

    Throat/Intestine Formula: A liquid blend of very powerful natural anti Viral/Bacterial Herbs, Vitamins, Minerals and Oil's. This formula has been used in our clinic since 1995, on all types of cold and flu's with fabulous results. Treatment lasts for 1-3 days, depending on what stage of illness.

    Weight Loss/Gain: can be achieved by increasing or decreasing food intake. Weight loss is a little more tricky and many involve a variety of test to determine glandular function (thyroid, adrenal, liver and digestive system). Food allergies play a big role in weight gain, constantly eating foods that cause allergic reactions will cause the body to make glycogen and lower thyroid function. Weight gain is increased by proper hydrochloric acid and enzymes in the stomach and intestines. Using free form amino acids and growth hormone stimulators, give a one, two punch that can't be beat .
    Biblical truth's: Lev. 17:11 The life of the flesh is in the blood.
    Supplements used: Antioxidants - Protects the cell against damage and aging.
    DHEA - If DHEA levels are low, you are more likely to develop: atherosclerosis and heart disease - malignant tumors - diabetes - lower mental function (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and stroke). DHEA is the best biomarker of aging and immune function.
