NATUROPATHIC
MEDICINE IS
Naturopathic medicine is an alternative medicine that emphasizes the root cause of disease instead of just symptom management. Natural substances are used to stimulate the immune system, promote detoxification and restore any imbalances. To do so, an holistic approach which includes lifestyle management, clinical nutrition, and treatments are the common modalities performed by a naturopathic physician.
LUMICEL
CLINIC IS
A 2,110 square feet medically advanced and professionally well equipped facility, providing naturopathic health care to local as well as international clients since 1989. We offer many unique testings and treatments to address the root causes of various illnesses in order to achieve a cure and an optimum level of health instead of merely managing symptoms.

We are one of the first few naturopathic clinics that provide ozone therapy in Vancouver. We specialize in many intravenous therapies such as chelation, hydrogen peroxide, careseng, glutathione, alpha lipoic acid, various vitamins/minerals/amino acid, and homeopathic preparations.


OUR TREATMENTS

LIVER IV

"Liver is the biggest factory in the body"

This intravenous therapy is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals (such as glutathione, cysteine, alpha lipoic acid, B-complex, Vitamin Methyl B12, Vitamin C, Methionine, Choline, Inositol, and multi-trace minerals) to promote proper liver function. Supporting a healthy liver is crucial as the liver is the biggest factory in the body – regulating digestion, synthesis, storage, detoxification, hormone clearance, and fat and carbohydrate metabolism.

Anti-Oxidant

"IV infusion of Vitamins can be great antioxidants"

Free radicals are deadly toxins that can damage tissues, causes inflammation and degenerative changes. Many powerful antioxidants such as vitamin A, C, E and alpha lipoic acid can effectively mop up the free radicals to prevent oxidative damages to the cells. IV infusion of these great antioxidants can bring about rejuvenation of the body.

CoQ10

"Co-enzyme Q10"

Co-enzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10, is an antioxidant that is abundant in the mitochondria, the powerhouse found in every human cell. It is naturally found throughout the body, especially in the heart, liver, kidney and pancreas. Japanese researchers have done extensive research on the health benefits of CoQ10 for over 40 years. CoQ10 regulates arrhythmia, increases energy levels, decreases blood pressure, and aids in fighting infections, heart disease, headaches, Parkinson’s disease and other disorders. CoQ10 has always produced consistent positive feedback with our patients, especially those with cardiovascular concerns.

Myers Cocktail

Created by John Myers, MD

Created by John Myers, MD, this simple intravenous cocktail of vitamins and minerals have found to be useful against acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies, cardiovascular diseases, and other disorders.

Plaquex

"Anti-arterial plaque treatment"

Founded in Switzerland from Soya Beans, this anti-arterial plaque treatment helps to improve circulation and overall organ function, particularly liver and brain. It is beneficial in eliminating excess fat in the blood, lowering cholesterol, and enhancing concentration and memory. Many of our heart disease patients found this treatment very helpful.

Glutathione

"Antioxidant for detoxification"

Composed of three different amino acids: glycine, glutamic acid, and cysteine, Glutathione is considered the master antioxidant for detoxification in the body. As we age, the amount of glutathione diminishes, and our body increases in toxins, oxidations, and free radicals. This powerful therapy is the key in protecting the body from free radical damage at the cellular level, therefore preventing chronic illnesses, autoimmune conditions and premature aging. A neurologist, Dr. Perlmutter, has administered high dosages of I.V. glutathione to eliminate symptoms of Parkinson’s for many years in the US.

Anti-Stress

"Managing your body's reaction to stress"

Many people underestimate the impact of stress on their health. If stress is not managed properly, it can lead to not only mental/emotional issues but also many health problems. Tissue and glandular extracts of adrenal, thyroid, thymus, ovaries, placenta, and vitamin Bs are often used in the anti-stress formula as they support the hormonal and nervous systems to combat stress.

Anti-Aging

"Nicotinamide Adenosine Dinucleotide, NAD+"

Nicotinamide Adenosine Dinucleotide, NAD+, naturally occurs in every cell and is critical for anti-aging and rejuvenation. As we age, our natural levels of NAD+ decrease. Research shows that low NAD+ levels are directly associating with cellular aging within the mitochondria, the electric generator of the cell. Replenishing NAD+ can therefore improve energy levels, prevent early aging, neurodegenerative diseases, and chronic illnesses.

Hydrogen Peroxide

"First line of defense"

Hydrogen peroxide is naturally produced in the human body and is the first line of defense against harmful parasites, bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Hydrogen peroxide has shown to help with viral infections, allergies, Alzheimer’s disease, angina, asthma, cardiovascular disease, stroke, herpes simplex, shingles, HIV, flu, headaches, poor circulation, chronic candidiasis, chronic pain, and many other conditions. We found that this therapy is excellent for those with compromised immune systems and allergies.
