Eric Gordon, MD on Using the Molekule Air Purifier in Our Office

Patients at GMA are uniquely sensitive to many things, and odors, scents, and air pollution are often one of the biggest issues they deal with. Though we have searched for air purifiers that helped our patients, we never had one that we were truly satisfied with. Until now.

We first heard about Molekule Air Purification from our patients. It almost sounded too good to be true. We found the PECO units do not filter, absorb, or block toxins in the air. The PECO technology literally takes the toxins apart, down to the molecular level. PECO is an innovative technology that utilizes free radicals—the same radicals used to kill cancer cells—to oxidize pollutants. By using nanotechnology, PECO is able to destroy pollutants 1000 times smaller than traditional HEPA filters (0.1 nanometers versus 300 nanometers). Toxins are broken down into carbon dioxide, water, and trace elements.

Our most sensitive staff, along with several who participated in Molekule’s beta study, all had notable positive results.

Need help filing insurance claims?

Insurance Reimbursement Assistance

We know that medical costs can be high. Even though we do not bill insurance in our offices, many people are able to get re-imbursement for services at GMA if your bills are properly submitted to your insurance company*.  If you have private insurance and have paid out-of-pocket for your medical expenses at GMA, American Medical Health Alliance can potentially help you obtain a reimbursement for some of your treatments.  Since 2007, AMHA has worked with patients who have Lyme disease, cancer, or other ailments who did not even think their insurance could be an option in helping with medical costs.

If you are considering Gordon Medical Associates for your healthcare, or have already received treatment in the last ten months, and would like to know if your insurance provider will cover the cost, please contact AMHA for a FREE evaluation of your insurance and to discuss how the process works. GMA is not affiliated with AMHA, but we have seen them be helpful with some of our patients.

*NOTE: GMA does not bill Medicare, nor are you able to submit the bills to Medicare yourself, or through AMHA. More about GMA office policies.

Marilyn Graham doing Live Blood Analysis – Maggie Perkins 2017

If it can’t move, it would be happier if it could.

That’s one way Marilyn Graham sums up her philosophy of healing. At every level, a person’s well-being can increase when something previously held in a static position starts to move, becoming more fluid, flexible and responsive to stimuli. Think of a stiff joint, sluggish lymph flow, or a chronic injury that has yet to fully resolve. Consider an old trauma easily awakened or a long-standing habit that persists for no good reason. All of these issues can benefit when more movement – another choice – is introduced. [Read more…]

I wish every room I go to had a Molekule Air Purifier in it.

Asha with her Molekule Air Purifier

 

I’ve never come across a better air purifier than Molekule. On top of that, it is a beautiful design. I started calling her Mo, since she felt like my new best friend.

I live in a house with 2 cats. My roomie is also redesigning the kitchen, so there is extra dust floating around. When I brought my Molekule into my room it automatically made me breath better. I had no idea how polluted my air was in my house till I brought the air purifier in. I was surprised to find out that indoor air is 5x more polluted than outdoor air.

I started waking up earlier, with more energy and less congested. I kept the Molekule on while I slept, and it seemed to make me sleep deeper. Usually I wake up tired, and I was waking up with extra energy. My bedroom feels like a sanctuary.

I brought my Molekule to the office, and everyone in the office noticed the difference in air quality. When someone who was sick came into the office, it felt like I was protected by the Molekule.

I highly recommend the Molekule, and believe there is no other air purifier out there that compares. I wish every room I go to had a Molekule in it.

Air Pollution Effects on Cognitive Ability: What Can You Do About It?

Red Plane - Lynn Badger 2066

Red Plane – Lynn Badger 2016

You probably already know that air pollution has an impact on the lungs, making it more difficult to breathe, and even triggering asthma and other respiratory issues. You may have also noticed that you are more tired on days when the air pollution levels are high.

Did you know that air pollution can also affect your ability to think well and remember things? Research is discovering the impact of air pollution, especially particulate matter (PM) and ozone, on the central nervous system and the brain. It has been connected with developmental issues in children, and the development of vascular dementia, Alzheimer’s diseaseParkinson’s disease, and loss of brain mass and cognitive abilities in adults.

Catching Up with Dr. Elizabeth Large, N.D.

By Carolyn B. Welcome, PA-C

Dr. Elizabeth Large divides her time between GMA’s main office in Santa Rosa and its new waterfront location in San Rafael. Among the many tools in her toolbox, this naturopathic physician offers expertise in Methyl Genetic Nutrition Analysis (MGNA), a program that provides in-depth interpretation of data from 23andMe genetic testing. This method has allowed her to home in on her patients’ individual needs.  Dr. Large’s toolbox also includes Chinese and Western plant-based treatments, Low Dose Immunotherapy (LDI),* oral and intravenous antibiotics, IV therapy and hormones.

“Natural medicine is not one size fits all,” she notes.

Thanks to the information given by MGNA, Dr. Large is seeing fast and quite amazing results in patients who have had health problems for most of their lives.

“When you see a lot of variants in one area – histamines, for example,” she explains, “it might help to explain unresolved issues.” [Read more…]
