Integrative Medicine Center

Integrative Healing Center is a unique place like no other in the region. We at Integrative Healing Center understand that the body is naturally designed to heal itself when given the proper balance of nutrition, sunlight, rest and relaxation, and detoxification. We work one on one with the patient to design a special healing program and incorporate appropriate healing therapeutics with conventional medicine for all patients with various disease processes.

At Integrative Healing Center, the patient is referred to as already being healed as this simple declaration is important to the healing process. The mindset of the healed patient is by far the most important aspect of the treatment process and will be the catalyst that propels healing. It is important for every healed patient to invest in oneself and educate their mind regarding their healing process. This connection is important as the rate limiting factor in the healing process is the willingness of the patient to fully take control over one’s health and make the necessary changes for success.

IV Nutritional Therapy

Intravenous (IV) vitamins, minerals and other nutrients can boost immune function, increase energy levels and help manage a variety of chronic health problems including cancer. At Integrative Healing Center, we use intravenously delivered vitamins, minerals and amino acids to assist with the natural healing process of the body. We offer nutritional IV therapies because it's one of the best ways to supply essential nutrients - nutrients that make up your body's normal metabolism and those required for restoring balance (homeostasis) - for the treatment of illness and fatigue.

Vitamins and minerals are safely given through the vein and goes directly into the body for immediate absorption and effect. Nutraceutical therapy uses powerful nutraceuticals and amino acids to help men and women fight the effects that busy and active lifestyles place on our bodies.

Toxin overload, as well as the stress of everyday life and poor health choices break the body down leading to degenerative diseases, fatigue, and even cancer.

Autologous Adult Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma

Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can become a specialized cell (blood, nerve, lung, heart, ligaments, etc.) in the right environment. This special progenitor cell has the ability to divide to produce more stem cells. There is some controversy in stem cell therapy, however, at Integrative Healing Center, we do not use embryonic cells, but we harvest cells from the patient’s own fatty tissues.

Conditions Treated with Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells regenerate the body at the cellular level. When given intravenously, they are dispersed to the whole body and therefore the possibility of benefits can be endless. Stem cells harvested from adult bone marrow or adipose (fat) tissue can be utilized to treat multiple conditions including, COPD, autoimmune disease such as Crohn’s, psoriasis, and eczema, as well as heart disease and osteoarthritis.

 

UNFORTUNATELY, STEM CELL THERAPY IS NOT CURRENTLY BEING OFFERED.

What is Breast Thermography?
Digital infrared breast thermography is a painless, radiation free imaging modality that helps detect breast cancer. Approved in 1982 by the FDA as an adjunctive diagnostic screening tool, it’s benefits are far reaching and understandably beneficial as evidenced by the extensive research that has been conducted over the past 6 decades.

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) allows a patient to breathe 100% oxygen at pressures greater than normal atmospheric pressure. The pressure causes the blood to take up greater volumes of oxygen, which speeds the healing process by increasing blood flow and oxygen receipt to damaged tissues. HBO has proven effective for a variety of health conditions including burns, carbon monoxide poisoning, diabetic ulcers, wounds that won’t heal, soft tissue infections, and more. Many doctors have begun using HBO to help plastic surgery patients recover more quickly after surgery. HBO helps minimize swelling, cut down pain, and speed up the body’s healing processes. Oxygen also has an anti-bacterial effect, which helps reduce possible infections, or fight off infection if a patient has complications. The therapy is said to reduce recovery times by 33 to 50 percent.

The Integrative Healing Approach to Care

At Integrative Healing Center, we understand the importance of treating the whole patient, identifying the cause of disease, treating the patient as well as eliminating the root cause.

The body is intricately made to heal itself when given the appropriate combination of nutrients, detoxification, sunlight and rest. Homeostasis is an important concept and a natural occurrence significant to the human body. Disease is an upset of this homeostasis and a consequence of toxemia, diminished immune system, toxic environmental exposures, chronic mental and emotional stress, and genetic alterations. At Integrative Healing Center, we believe that all diseases have one major root cause, and that is toxin build up that is greater than the body’s ability to overcome the effects. We also believe that cancer is a non-healing wound that lacks the appropriate milieu to overcome the stressors enacted upon the tissues. The underlying cause of disease must be treated if the body is to be healed from this disequilibrium.

Stem Cell Therapy

Totipotent

The ability of an immature stem cell to give rise to any cell type or complete ebmryo. Forms before blastocyst.

Pluripotent

The ability of a stem cell to differentiate into any of the three germ layers: endoderm (interior stomach lining, gastrointestinal tract, the lungs), mesoderm (muscle, bone, blood, urogenital), or ectoderm (epidermal tissues and nervous system).

Multipotent

Multipotent cells are found in many, but not all human cell types. Multipotent cells have been found in cord blood, adipose tissue, cardiac cells, bone marrow, and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) which are found in the third molar.

Oligopotency

The ability of progenitor cells to differentiate into a few cell types. It is a degree of potency. Examples of oligopotent stem cells are the lymphoid or myeloid stem cells. A lymphoid cell specifically, can give rise to various blood cells such as B and T cells, however, not to a different blood cell type like a red blood cell.

Unipotent

The ability of a progenitor cell to differentiate into one cell type.

"Dr. Robinson has been such a blessing to our family. When I was concerned about test results, she called me personally to calm my fears. She explains things thoroughly and has a wonderful bedside manner. She is so knowledgeable and such an asset to the Northern Illinois region. It is hard to find such a wonderful doctor and even harder to find one locally. I recommend her to all of my friends."

"After chemotherapy and radiation treatments to fight my breast cancer, I have been unable to work due to extreme fatigue. Dr. Robinson was my surgeon and she suggested I try the IV vitamins to see if they could help me. My energy levels did improve and I have increased stamina since receiving the IV vitamins. I may never be at the energy levels I had before the chemotherapy but I am grateful for the improvements that I have received and definitely recommend you see Dr. Robinson for these Vitamin IV treatments!

"I have found the holistic approach alternative to my breast cancer follow up treatment to be valuable. Arimidex causes osteoporosis which I already have. Glad for EstroVantage herbal replacement. I also take 5mg of pure Vit. C a day. Had foot detoxes and 7-day detox which helped me to finally get closer to my weight goal. I exercise daily at the Y which rounds out my health regimen. Thank you Dr. Robinson! Happy New Year."
