Far Infrared (FIR) Sauna

General sauna concept is to heat the body by several degrees. The body attempts to reduce the temperature by relaxing blood vessels, driving blood to the surface, and by sweating. This has the effect of increasing circulation, and allowing detoxification through the skin. Repeated sauna use increases the efficiency of sweating.

FIR wavelength is too long to be perceived by the eyes, however, the body experiences its energy as a gentle radiant heat which can penetrate up to 1.5 inches (almost 4 cm) beneath the skin. FIR sauna is able to provide beneficial effects at much lower temperatures (usually 90F-130F) than regular sauna.

Gordon Medical uses a Heavenly Heat FIR Sauna. Heavenly Heat Saunas has been building Saunas for the chemically sensitive person since 1988.

Bee Venom Therapy

Tiny amounts of bee venom are injected around joints or into specific acupuncture points, causing an inflammatory response which stimulates the immune system to “normalize” and relieve joint pain.

Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA)

Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a simple, noninvasive, rapid, portable, reproducible, and convenient method of measuring body composition. By using the impedance measurements, along with a person’s height, weight, and body type (gender, age, fitness level), it is possible to calculate the percentage of body fat, fat-free mass, hydration level, and other body composition values.

Electrocardiogram (EKG)

An EKG is a recording of the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time using electrodes on the skin. Gordon Medical primarily uses an EKG to check whether medications or disease are having a negative effect on the heart.

Low Dose Immunotherapy

LDI is a form of immune desensitization that works by restoring the tolerance for toxins or other foreign substances that induce an immune response in the body (antigens). This can be done for literally thousands of antigens at once to help your immune system better tolerate certain therapies.

Nebulized Therapy

Nebulized therapy is often called a “breathing treatment”, applied with a small machine called a nebulizer. A variety of medications — both for immediate relief and maintenance of symptoms — are available for use with a nebulizer.

About Nebulized Therapy
Neural Therapy

A method of diagnosing and treating illness and pain caused by disturbances of the body’s electrophysiology. These electrical disturbances are manifestations of cell membrane instability, and typically trigger abnormal autonomic nervous system responses.

Ozone Treatments: Ear, Nasal, Rectal, Vaginal, Bladder and Limb (ENRVBL)

Ozonotherapy is the use of medical grade ozone, a highly reactive form of pure oxygen, to create a curative response in the body. The body has the potential to renew and regenerate itself. When it becomes sick it is because this potential has been blocked. The reactive properties of ozone stimulate the body to remove many of these impediments, thus allowing the body to do what it does best – heal itself.

Ozone Therapy is a medical therapy that has been used worldwide for over 50 years with dramatic success and safety. Ozone therapy increases the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone.

Phlebotomy (Blood Draw)

Gordon Medical offers the option of having blood drawn in our office for all of your testing needs. In particular, GMA uses many tests that are not part of the usual set up in regular test labs like Quest or LabCorp. Having your blood drawn in our office ensures the kits are all properly prepared and sent out to the correct labs.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. Injecting this into injured ligaments and tendons stimulates healing.

Sleep Apnea Testing

Sleep Apnea is one of the most common sleep disorders, in which breathing stops and then restarts again recurrently during sleep. Sleep Apnea is not just a condition of sleep loss, it also involves oxygen deprivation as the airway becomes blocked when throat tissues relax during sleep. Our Sleep Apnea test can be done in the privacy of your home in just two nights.

Spirometry (Lung Function)

Spirometry (the measuring of breath) is the most common of the pulmonary function tests, measuring lung function, specifically the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled.

About Spirometry
Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging is an infrared picture taken of the heat inside the body. It is a visual display of the amount of infrared energy emitted, transmitted, and reflected by the body. Thermal Imaging can help detect areas of inflammation, poor blood flow, or excess blood flow in the body.

Visual Contrast Sensitivity (VCS) Test

Visual contrast sensitivity (VCS) testing measures your ability to see details at low contrast levels, and is often used as a nonspecific test of neurological function. At GMA, the VCS testing is often a very useful biotoxin screening tool.
