What is PRP and How Does It Help Treat Arthritis?

Posted on Categories Uncategorized

Regenerative medicine and regenerative medical procedures are new terms to the average patient. However, regenerative medicine is a growing discipline within the medical field. Dr. Joe Cleaver of Paradigm Wellness Medical Group is a regenerative medicine expert who includes PRP, PRF, and stem cell treatments in his arsenal of procedures that allow the body to heal itself.

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelet Rich Plasma the portion of the patient’s own blood that is extracted, concentrated, and injected back into the treatment area of the patient’s body. The studies behind PRP treatment show that having a platelet concentration above the baseline promotes the body’s natural ability to heal injuries, including tendons, muscles, ligaments, osteoarthritis, joints, and various musculoskeletal problems. The goals of using PRP treatment for knee arthritis are to:

    • Reduce pain
    • Improve joint function
    • Possibly slow, halt, or even repair damage to cartilage

Dr. Joseph Cleaver is an internationally recognized expert and speaker in the field of Functional Medicine and the co-founder of Paradigm Wellness Medical Group Inc., in Dallas TX and Napa, CA. Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Regenerative and Functional Medicine, and a Rheumatologist his passion focuses on effective regenerative therapies in the treatment of joint arthritis, soft tissue, and sports injuries. Dr. Cleaver also applies his regenerative medicine knowledge and expertise in the field of advanced regenerative aesthetics designing individualized skin rejuvenation therapies that harness the patient’s natural rejuvenating substances known as PRP or growth factors. Dr. Joe focuses on multiple regenerative medicine therapies, including:

    • Stem cells
    • PRP
    • PRF
    • Peptides
    • In sports injuries
    • Osteoarthritis
    • Aesthetics

In a previous blog, we discussed the protein “Alpha-2-Macroglobulin” (A2M) and how it is a naturally occurring plasma glycoprotein within your body that helps battle osteoarthritis. Another biologic treatment for your arthritic knee is Platelet Plasma “PLUS”, the “3P” shot for osteoarthritis. Dr. Joe Cleaver administers the 3P shot to help your body regenerate itself in the area that is injured, inflamed, and/or recovering from arthritis.

Dr. Joe Cleaver of Paradigm Wellness Medical Group and like-minded scientists have been spending years trying to develop a method of collecting regenerative medicine formulas, including Alpha-2-Macroglobulin and Platelet Rich Plasma, from the blood stream. This treatment of regenerative medicine offers a simple procedure of injecting it into your arthritic knee to relieve pain and prevent further damage to the joint. But A2M, PRP, and other regenerative medical treatments are not just for arthritic knees. They can be used on any osteoarthritic joint.

PRP, PRF, A2M, and stem cell treatments are exciting new technologies used in the regenerative medicine field, but it may not be the right treatment for everyone. To verify that you are a good candidate for regenerative medicine therapy, schedule a consultation with Dr. Joe Cleaver of Paradigm Wellness Medical Group. Our offices are in Sonoma, Santa Rosa, San Francisco, and Dallas.

What is A2M and What Does It Do?

Posted on Categories BlogTags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A2M is a new treatment for arthritis. A2M stands for Alpha-2-Macroglobulin, and it’s an injection therapy offered by Paradigm Wellness Medical Group.

Is your body experiencing arthritic and degenerative conditions? Osteoarthritis could be the source, and it is a condition that affects approximately 30 million Americans. A2M injection therapy could be a good solution and treatment for your arthritis, and Dr. Joe Cleaver of PWMG will be happy to offer consultation to see if you are a good candidate for this new arthritis treatment.

Alpha-2-Macroglobulin is naturally found in blood and plasma protein. According to Neurological Associates of West Los Angeles, A2M works by inhibiting 3 specific protein classes: Cytokines, Matrix Metalloproteinases, and ADAMTS (A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase with ThromboSpondin) which degrade cartilage over time. A2M injections can inhibit the progression of Osteoarthritis by protecting cartilage from catabolic breakdown and inflammation. Therefore, A2M helps to prevent cartilage breakdown, promotes tissue growth, and supports cartilage restoration of the affected joints.

Osteoarthritis symptoms are commonly knee pain, back pain, Post Traumatic Osteoarthritis, or other joint conditions. The good news is that A2M is a non-surgical method of treatment that eases the pain and neutralizes the deterioration caused by Osteoarthritis. According to medical sources, an A2M injection therapy issued by Paradigm Wellness Medical Group can do the following:

  • Stop the breakdown of cartilage and prevent cartilage loss
  • Halt the progression of osteoarthritis
  • Reduce the pain caused by osteoarthritis
  • Improve joint function
  • Promotes tissue growth
  • Support the restoration of affected joint(s)

A2M is one of the many regenerative medicine therapies we utilize at PWMG. The other regenerative medicine therapies we offer include:

  • Stem cells
  • PRP
  • PRF
  • Peptides
  • In sports injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Aesthetics

A2M is an exciting, new arthritis treatment, but it may not be the right treatment for everyone. To verify that you are a good candidate for Alpha-2-Macroglobulin injection therapy, schedule a consultation with Dr. Joe Cleaver of Paradigm Wellness Medical Group. Our offices are in Sonoma, Santa Rosa, San Francisco, and Dallas.

5 Ways to Improve Your Sleep Quality

Posted on Categories BlogTags , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

How you feel during waking hours depends on how well you sleep at night. Sleep is crucial for both your health and well-being. If you are not getting enough sleep, your mental health, physical health, safety, and quality of life diminishes. While you sleep, your body uses this time to maintain both your physical and psychological health. There can be severe repercussions from lack of sleep. The results can occur in an instant, such as falling asleep at the wheel and getting into an accident. The consequences can also be long-term, as lack of sleep can lead to chronic health concerns.

Sleep is paramount for your well-being and health. It also strengthens your ability to solve problems and make decisions. Without restful sleep, your ability to control your emotions weakens. Unfortunately, sometimes, our body does not want to turn off, and we spend the night tossing and turning in frustration. Here are some general things people do to sleep better:

  • Stay in sync with your body’s natural sleep cycle: To do this, we recommend going to sleep and waking up at the same time every day. This sort of schedule will set your body’s clock. When it is your scheduled bedtime, your body will begin to feel tired. Also, try to avoid sleeping in, even if you are trying to catch up on lost sleep. It will disrupt your sleep schedule.
  • Monitor your exposure to light: When the sun sets, your brain releases a hormone called melatonin. When it is lighter out, your brain releases less of this hormone. The release of melatonin will make you sleepy, so it is helpful to go to sleep without the light of a lamp or a television screen and to avoid large amounts light one to two hours before bedtime.
  • Exercise moderately: Regular exercise seems like a no brainer. Incorporating moderate exercise into your daily routine is important. Regular exercise decreases the symptoms of insomnia and sleep apnea.
  • Be aware of what you are eating and drinking: Avoid caffeinated beverages as much as possible. Caffeine can stay in your system for up to 12 hours. Also, alcohol may help you relax, but it alters your sleep cycle, making it harder to go to sleep without depending on an alcoholic drink.
  • Try your best to relax: If you are stressed out, your mind is in overdrive, and you can’t seem to calm your racing heart, which is not the best condition for sleeping. We recommend figuring out to relax that works best for you. You could try reading, meditation, visualization, and so on.

But what if you tried these methods and they still don’t work? How can Paradigm Wellness Medical Group help you get a better night’s sleep?

The answer may surprise you. Cortisol plays a vital role in controlling your response to stress. Stress elevates cortisol levels, and cortisol is directly linked to sleep. Your level of cortisol is generally high in the morning and falls as the day progresses. When you go to sleep, your cortisol level should be low. If you’re not sleeping well, you’re not restoring your cortisol, and your hormones risk becoming unbalanced. In response, some of you will turn to caffeine. Your high levels of stress are causing you to sleep poorly, and in response, you are drinking large amounts of caffeine to compensate for exhaustion, which will further throw your cycle out of whack.

If you are struggling to fall asleep, or the quality of your sleep is poor, we encourage you to contact Paradigm Wellness Medical Group. We will carefully evaluate your lifestyle to see what is causing your sleep patterns. We will thoroughly study your sleep architecture to pinpoint lifestyle habits that are adding stress to your life. Sometimes, a hormone imbalance is responsible for disrupting your sleep cycle. We will analyze your hormone levels to help determine the cause of your unrest. Paradigm Wellness Medical Group uses successful therapies that will help you sleep naturally; getting you back into a healthy sleep cycle.

If you want restful, deep sleep, contact Paradigm Wellness Medical Group for a consultation. We will test to see if lifestyle habits or a hormone imbalance lie as the root cause of your sleep issues. Then, we will develop a personalized plan designed to improve your quality of sleep and your overall health. Paradigm Wellness Medical Group has offices in Sonoma, Santa Rosa, San Francisco, and Dallas. Contact us today for a consultation.

Our patients strive to have their body running at peak performance. Many of our patients are working closely with an elite athletic trainer in order to achieve their optimal level of fitness. However, how do athletic trainers actually transform their amateur athletes? The role of an elite athletic trainer includes:

  • Athletic trainers show respect and consideration for their clients’ past successes and level of training. It doesn’t matter if you have completed a triathlon or are looking to begin a new sport. Athletic trainers take into consideration your level of fitness and experience when transforming you into an athlete.
  • Athletic trainers set clear, well-defined goals for you. You need to be crystal clear on exactly what your goal is and when you plan to achieve it. Also, trainers ensure these goals are realistic and achievable for your fitness, experience, and time frame.
  • Your strengths and weaknesses will be analyzed, so you can improve and enhance on both. In order to pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses, your trainer will run several tests, such as Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and many others.
  • Athletic trainers look at the entire picture: your sleeping patterns, your diet and nutrition, your exercise schedule, and so on. Elite trainers take a comprehensive approach when transforming their clients into skilled and well-rounded athletes.

Along with your athletic trainer, Paradigm Wellness Medical Group can transform you into a highly skilled and performing athlete. We use a holistic approach to analyzing both your sports performance and nutrition intake. Next, we will complete a muscle strength, fitness, and metabolic testing to pinpoint your optimum heart rate and metabolic efficiency during exercise.

By developing a nutrition and fitness plan tailored to your individual needs, we will maximize your performance, while minimizing the risk of injury or fatigue.

To transform yourself into an amateur athlete, the help of an athletic trainer is only one piece of the puzzle. A nutrition and fitness plan tailored to your individual needs and designed to enhance your performance is also essential. Paradigm Wellness Medical Group will develop a plan specific to your body and lifestyle. Our offices are in Sonoma, Santa Rosa, San Francisco, and Dallas. Contact us today for a consultation.

Lifestyle Medicine is Regenerative Medicine

Posted on Categories BlogTags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Currently, regenerative medicine emphasizes the importance and utilization of stem cells. By optimizing stem cells, we can slow down the aging process. At Paradigm Wellness, our regenerative medicine emphasizes the optimization of stem cells. However, our lifestyle medicine, or changes and improvements in our lifestyle, are able to naturally utilize our stem cells and work as a regenerative medicine. In other words, Paradigm Wellness Medical Group’s lifestyle medicine doubles as regenerative medicine.

Our lifestyle, or our sleep cycle, eating habits, the many levels of physical activity, and our peace of mind, has a powerful influence on many aspects of our life, including our body’s production of stem cells, along with the speed and strength of aging. We, at Paradigm Wellness Medical Group, believe a few, simple, but influential changes in our lifestyle can increase the optimization of stem cells.

With proper exercise and control of our intake of glucose, you can enhance your stem cells, which in turn, can slow down the anti-aging process. We can advance our stem cells with Resveratrol, if we eat certain foods, such as blueberries and green tea, along with foods rich in Vitamin D. The DHA in omega 3 fish oil also promotes stem cells.

Lifestyle medicine is regenerative medicine. At Paradigm Wellness Medical Group, we will develop lifestyle medicine personalized to your individual needs, desires, and goals. Lifestyle optimization is the key to promotion of stem cells, which will result in slowing down and weakening signs of aging. We will improve your appearance and health naturally. Our offices are in Sonoma, Santa Rosa, San Francisco, and Dallas. Contact us today for a consultation.

About the O-Shot(R) Procedure

Posted on Categories BlogTags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

What Is The O-Shot?

You may have been hearing about the “O-shot” in the media. You may be wondering exactly what it is, and if this shot is suitable for you. The O-shot, an abbreviation of the Orgasm Shot, is a non-surgical treatment essentially designed to rejuvenate your sex life. Up to 25% of women have orgasmic dysfunction, which is defined as the recurrent delay of an orgasm following sex, and the O-Shot is engineered to solve this problem. When women are looking to zest up their sex life, they often turn to this miraculous procedure.

The O-shot is not a drug. Instead, it is a non-invasive and surgical procedure performed in a doctor’s office. Your body’s very own blood platelets are injected into your vaginal tissue. This shot will attract stem cells to the injected area, which will, in turn, create healthier and more functioning tissue.

Benefits of the O-Shot

Many of our patients who have received the O-shot reap these benefits following the procedure:

  • Increased sensation.
  • Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation.
  • The ability to have an orgasm from penetrative sex.
  • Stronger and more frequent orgasms.
  • Increased natural lubrication and the increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm.

Truly exceptional technology and science was utilized in order to create such an incredible procedure. We have seen many of our patients walk away from our office, after receiving, the O-Shot, once again excited and revitalized about their sex life.

We understand that there can be a certain stigma surrounding the female orgasm. Paradigm Wellness Medical Group stresses that we are a completely safe space, and we are here to develop a personalized lifestyle medicine plan tailored to your individual needs. The O-shot may be the right choice for you, and we look forward to providing you with the valuable information needed to make that decision. Our offices are in Sonoma, Santa Rosa, San Francisco, and Dallas. Contact us today for a consultation.
