Dr. Orta: Boosting the Immune System Through Functional Medicine

Boosting the Immune System Through Functional Medicine Each day, we learn new facts, figures, and protocols concerning COVID-19. As we navigate through the coronavirus pandemic over the next few months, disinfection and social distancing is the recommended preventative advice, and boosting the immune system is also beneficial. Healthier individuals are better able to fight the infection and make full recoveries.

Along with a nutritional standpoint, there are viable treatment options and procedures that bolster immune function and can also alleviate viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections. Dr. Orta is a wholistic chiropractor with over 20 years of experience in functional and regenerative medicine, and he is the founder of Healthy Living Natural Health and Pain Management Center. We caught up with Dr. Orta to find out more about his expertise.

“The first step is to discuss a patient’s diet. It’s critical to eliminate sugar as it compromises the white blood cells. Making the majority of the diet plant-based with fresh fruits and vegetables is essential, and individuals should stay well hydrated. We encourage our patients to drink at least half of their body weight in ounces throughout the day. Eating simple carbohydrates and too much animal protein or dairy causes inflammation and metabolic syndrome, which is the underlying cause of most disease.”

Dr. Orta continued, “We have many cutting-edge treatment options in our office setting. If a patient presents with an issue, we do in-depth muscle testing and, in some cases, comprehensive blood panels to accurately diagnose the source of their disorder. For patients that are ill, we also use a remarkable machine called TrueRife.

“TrueRife uses frequencies to detect viruses, parasites, and bacteria. We scan the body and use TrueRife’s high-resolution vibrations at varying frequencies to shatter the cell walls of the cause of these diseases and disorders. The physician that invented the device based the concept on, if opera singers can shatter glass with certain frequencies, why can’t frequencies shatter cells. After years of researching which frequency worked on various cells, we now have precise measurements to help patients heal rapidly with this procedure.

“For example, yesterday a patient presented with severe lymphedema, and since amoebas and lymphatic swelling are commonly seen together, we scanned her with TrueRife, and she had massive clusters of parasites throughout her body. She said that she always felt like things were crawling in her legs. TrueRife is excellent to help with the symptoms of Lyme’s disease, Parkinson’s, autoimmune disorders, viral infections, and numerous other conditions. If we suspect viral or bacterial loads, we incorporate TrueRife, as it disrupts the functioning of microorganisms.

“We also have an infra-red sauna, which is a powerful immune booster, as it naturally detoxes the body by increasing body temperature, pushing out toxins and increasing white blood cell counts, which fight infection. It significantly activates the body’s immune function.

“PEMF is also a valuable treatment for immunity. Specially designed electromagnetic impulses, called Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy, are vital for the cell’s ability to produce more energy and to maintain or regenerate to a healthy state. The human body contains approximately 100 trillion cells. Each of these cells relies on energy and ATP to correctly metabolize, communicate with other cells, and keep organs and tissues in a healthy state. Proper functioning and flow of oxygen and nutrients is key to keeping our cells vital. When these areas are inhibited, that’s when fatigue, disorders, depleted immune systems, and disease form in our bodies. We place the pad over the thymus, spleen and liver to charge up the body and increase cellular voltage and regeneration.

“Whole-body vibration is a machine that manually “shakes” the muscle and tiny fibers to stimulate the lymphatic system to pump much more efficiently and increase circulation. We also, of course, recommend herbal and nutritional supplements custom-tailored to the condition that we are treating. It’s excellent at getting the lymphatic stimulation and circulation.

“Specialized, wholistic chiropractic care is much more involved than traditional, standard adjustments. Wholistic Chiropractic care relieves stress off of the nerves and helps the body to move from the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) into the parasympathetic system, which soothes the immune and central nervous system. HRV (heart rate variability) is also a fantastic way to read a person’s stress load. HRV also analyzes a patient’s health and recovery ability. We can see virtual, live time changes in a patient going from sympathetic dominance to parasympathetic dominance after our treatments.

“It’s important for patients to know that there are alternative therapies that can help them with multiple conditions. You don’t always need surgery, and you certainly do not need drugs that merely mask symptoms. We focus on finding the root cause and then implementing a strategic plan to help our patients heal and regenerate their bodies comprehensively.”
