Dr. Devlin is a board certified Family Physician and board eligible in Emergency Medicine. He also is board certified and fellowship trained in Anti-Aging and Regenerative medicine and fellowship trained in Integrative Cancer Therapeutics. He currently works in the field of Integrative Medicine providing care for patients with chronic medical conditions including cancer, chronic infections like Lyme Disease and co-infections as well as caring for patients with chronic pain.
Oxidative Therapies place oxidative stress on infectious organisms by generating oxygen free radicals to kill or disable infectious organisms and cancer cells in cancer cell lines. This effective therapy kills weak cells and poorly performing cells, facilitating replacement by healthy, functional cells. Similar to our body's balance of alkaline and acidic forces, our body utilizes oxidative stress and anti-oxidation to find health and homeostasis.
Oxidative Therapies are delivered in a variety of methods. Please request an appointment with one of our staff to learn more about how Oxidative Therapy may benefit you.
Oxidative Therapies are used in cases where an anaerobic organism or condition is detrimentally affecting a patient. Cancer, Lyme Disease or Lyme co-infections, viral infections such as Hepatitis C, Herpes, HPV, Epstein Bar Virus, and Cytomegalovirus can be effectively treated with Oxidative Therapy. It can also be used to support the patient's well-being at the cellular level. (Please consider whether this last sentence is extraneous as it is previously stated in the first paragraph.)
We will determine if you are a candidate for Oxidative Therapy by confirming your diagnosis of infectious organism, cancer, or other treatable illness.
For medical conditions requiring anti-oxidative treatment, High Dose Vitamin-C, Multi-Nutrient and Multi-Mineral cocktails can be used to support a patient's disease process. These Orthomolecular Therapies supply vitamins acting as a potential free radical buffer. Many cofactors are necessary for cells to function efficiently and to maintain vital homeostasis. Many of these cofactors may be limited in patients or may not be in ready supply due to malnutrition or malabsorbtion.
Such treatable illnesses may include chronic infections, trauma, chronic fatigue syndrome and cancer. We will measure anti-oxidant and oxidative stress in order to determine if you are a candidate for these treatments.
For conditions requiring liver detoxification use of Alpha Lipoic Acid, Phospholipon, Milk Thistle, N acetyl Cysteine and drainage remedies supplemented with oral and transdermal treatments are recommended.
All filters, if not regularly cleaned, cannot do its job effectively or efficiently. Your liver is essentially your body's filter which needs periodic maintenance.
Common liver function testing will help us determine whether your liver is stressed, and whether you need detoxification.
For treatments requiring elimination of heavy metals and toxins from the body, chelation may be helpful and can be achieved by the use of natural products and the use of oral DMSA and DMPS or rectal and IV Sodium EDTA.
Chelation may be helpful if you have experienced heavy metal poisoning, exposure to pesticides, and certain chemotherapies. Blood, urine and saliva will be tested to determine if you are a candidate for Chelation Therapy. Symptoms of heavy metal poisoning these include: fever, headache, brain fog, sudden weight gain, and generalized aches and pains. Chelation allows for the removal of the heavy metals, which may improve patient symptoms.
Almost any and all patients can benefit from Nutritional Support and/or IV Vitamin Supplementation such as a Myers Cocktail, Executive Nutritional IV's as well as IV Amino Acids and IV Lipids and in extreme cases of cachexia and malnutrition, IV Albumin can be used. Many patients who wish to stay active will use these forms of therapy to support their physical performance.
Additionally, patients suffering from a chronic illness or going through treatment for cancer benefit from nutritional support to maintain a healthy weight and to utilize nutritive support for health protocols. We use general and specific lab testing to evaluate individual nutritional status.
Evaluation and support to help the body during the aging process is administered depending on each patient's individual needs. A variety of diagnostic testing and therapies are available to help patients suffering from the ravages of aging. Such therapies include metabolic support, weight loss programs, biological hormone replacement therapy, and nervous system support protocols.
An evaluation of your hormone levels, metabolic function, and body composition are used to identify your candidacy for these therapies.
Multiple therapies can be used to treat both acute and chronic infections, including traditional agents and medications, as well as a combination of homeopathic and naturopathic ingredients. Many people unknowingly harbor smoldering infections which stress the body and cause diminished quality of life and increased morbidity and mortality.
We look for specific antibodies and perform Western Blot and Elisa Testing to determine if you have an infectious burden.
Fractioned Chemotherapy with a Biological Response Modifier Therapy (FCBRM) is a non-conventional protocol for the treatment of cancer based upon the hypothesis that insulin may be used to potentiate the effectiveness of commonly used anti-cancer drugs. FCBRM uses insulin because cancer cells have many more insulin receptors than healthy cells. And, when exposed to insulin, cancer cells become more susceptible to low doses of chemotherapeutic agents. With FCBRM protocol and this insulin effect, patients are given these agents in much lower doses than in conventional therapies. FCBRM protocol also calls for the delivery of chemotherapeutic drugs more frequently, to allow a therapeutic impact while minimizing side effects and allowing patients a higher quality of life during treatment.
Many patients and the public are familiar with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and its psychoactive qualities (euphoria, sedation, and appetite stimulation). Research is now blossoming around a lesser-known cannabinoid, cannabidiol, which is related to THC but does not share its psychoactive aspects. Cannabidiol, known by its chemical compound identifier, CBD, is present in the cannabis plant and has a wide spectrum of therapeutic abilities. Cannabidiol contains anti-inflammatory properties; has antiproliferative/anticancer effects; and can act as an antispasmodic, antimicrobial, and antipsychotic agent. Other properties include the capacity to function as a bone stimulant, a neuroprotective agent, and a vascular relaxant. Cannabidiol has also demonstrated effectiveness as a stabilizer for blood sugars, providing a potential therapy in the treatment of diabetes.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 60 active cannabinoids identified in the cannabis plant. It is a major constituent of the plant, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract, as a nonpsychotropic phytocannabinoid. CBD is considered to have a wider scope of medical applications than THC.
Both THC and CBD have antinausea, neuroprotective, anti¬anxiety, anti-inflammatory, and anti-proliferative effects. These properties are of great benefit to patients suffering from cancer and HIV.
