Dr. Nigh develops aggressive, comprehensive treatment programs for all kinds of cancer. In addition, he develops intensive treatment programs for lyme disease, mold-related illness, chemical sensitivities, chronic fatigue, and many other difficult-to-treat conditions.
Acupuncture, Laser Acupuncture and Electroacupuncture
A large and growing body of research is demonstrating scientifically what has been known for a few thousand years: acupuncture and Chinese herbs play an extremely important role in cancer care. Acupuncture can help with a multitude of issues including pain relief and reduction of symptoms associated, with immune stimulation and enhanced vitality. Chinese medicine is vital to the overall well-being of cancer patients.
In laser acupuncture, Dr. Nigh uses the clinic's high-power Class 3b laser to stimulate acupuncture points, especially points on the ears, hands, and feet. Laser acupuncture is a unique way of combining the biphotonic properties of both red and infrared laser light, with the elaborate and interconnected meridian network recognized in Chinese Medicine.
Electroacupuncture involves the application of low-intensity electric current to acupuncture needles once the needles are on the body. This is a method that has been studied and demonstrated to have a uniquely powerful effect in achieving pain relief. It is also indicated in the treatment of digestive disorders, PMS, muscle spasms, and more.
The Asyra represents the latest available technology for monitoring and addressing changes in the body's autonomic nervous system. The Asyra "pings" the body with hundreds of electromagnetic patterns, each representing a unique bacteria, virus, mold, environmental toxin, heavy metal, food and even thought patterns and emotional states. Changes detected in skin resistance in response to these challenges indicate potential stressors that need to be addressed. The Asyra then can be used to generate an individualized "informational" remedy whereby a set of therapeutic frequencies are imprinted on a sample of water, which is then taken in a prescribed number of drops each day.
Maria has been through extensive training on the use of the Asyra. Used with other functional testing, the Asyra provides invaluable information about the underlying imbalances in each patient.
Bio-Well is a unique device that measures the emission of biophotons from the fingertips. Biophotons charge the air around them, and the Bio-Well detects the amount of charge in the gasses surrounding the fingertips. The Chinese meridians end in the fingertips as well, so the Bio-Well maps the intensity of biophotonic output from each region of the fingertips to the Chinese meridian system. The result is a detailed map of the right/left and yin/yang energy capacity and balance associated with the organs and system of the body.
Frequency Specific BioResonance
Every organism - be it a mold that causes respiratory illness, a spirochete that causes Lyme disease or a virus that causes hepatitis or influenza - has a characteristic frequency at which it vibrates. Modern research is even documenting specific frequencies associated with specific cancer types. Utilizing the indicated frequencies to establish resonance with these cells and organisms to "shatter" them is gaining interest in the conventional medical world. This is especially true in an environment where antibiotic-resistant bacteria are an increasing menace. Dr. Nigh has been researching frequency-based therapies for over a decade, and in fact, it was his learning of the historical use of this therapy on cancer patients that ultimately led to his pursuit of naturopathic medicine and his specialty in naturopathic oncology.
Single nucleotide polymorphisms, commonly known as SNPs or "snips," occur when one nucleotide at a particular location on a gene is switched for a different nucleotide. Millions of these snips occur in each of us, and most snips have no known impact on our health.
However, there are hundreds of these snips that do, in fact, significantly impact how our bodies carry out various processes like detoxification, hormone metabolism, methylation, sulfur processing, stress regulation and many dozens of others.
Dr. Nigh has studied the impact of these polymorphisms for several years. He has been certified in the use of the Opus23 dataset, the most complex and comprehensive genetic polymorphism analysis software currently available. Dr. Nigh helps patients understand the role that these underlying genetic snips might be playing not only in their current health, but have been playing throughout their lives.
HOCATT™ stands for Hyperthermic Ozone and Carbonic Acid Transdermal Technique. That seems like a mouthful, but it doesn't begin to encompass the wide range of therapies that can be delivered during each HOCATT™ session. The HOCATT™ can facilitate intensive detoxification, skin rejuvenation and anti-aging therapies, cellulite mobilization and weight loss, oxygenation, and much more. The modalities built into the HOCATT™ make it ideal as both a stand alone set of therapies, and a perfect addition to a comprehensive program for treatment of cancer, chronic fatigue, mold illness, autoimmune disease, and much more.
IC Medicals lets you "print" your supplements or medications onto your water. Immersion Health is a developer. "IC" stands for Information Copy, and is the term used to describe the digital copy of each substance. IC Medicals is collecting digital copies of hundreds of pharmaceuticals, herbs, vitamins, homeopathic remedies, Bach flower remedies, and other medicinal substances, and making these available to the public. Using an IC Pad that you purchase at Immersion Health or through the IC Medicals web page (linked below), you pick your IC from the database (ginseng, ashwagandha, metformin, doxycycline, etc.), set your water on the IC Pad, and start the download. Your water imprints the information and you simply drink the water as you normally would.
Immersion Health is one of the few clinics in the Pacific Northwest to offer hi-dose ozone therapy, also referred to sometimes as "5-pass." Hi-dose ozone brings together two very powerful therapies: intravenous ozone therapy and ultraviolet blood irradiation (IVBI; see below). This combination of therapies is currently the most powerful alternative therapy for the treatment of chronic Lyme disease, mold-related illness, acute and chronic bacterial and viral infections of all types, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, autoimmune illnesses, inflammatory disorders, COPD and other respiratory diseases, and much else. Its clinical efficacy is equal to and may even exceed the more widely used "10 pass" ozone therapy, and each session can be completed in as little as 40 minutes.
In addition to hi-dose ozone, the IV therapy program at Immersion Health uses a wide range of metabolic therapies delivered in a very specific sequence. Dichloroacetate (DCA), DMSO, alpha lipoic acid, high-dose vitamin C, glutathione, choline, hydrogen peroxide, and many other nutrients are used to "unlock" aspects of cancer cell metabolism. We also use a therapy called UVBI, or ultraviolet blood irradiation, to boost immunity, kill infectious organisms and address autoimmune conditions. In addition to cancer therapy, Dr. Nigh utilizes IV therapy for surgery recovery, pre- and post-athletic performance, geriatric nutrient repletion, pain management, addiction recovery, pain management, depression unresponsive to medications, and much more.
Infrared Sauna and Detoxification Therapies
Immersion Health has an in-house near-infrared (NIR) sauna. In addition to the detoxifying effect of sweating, NIR light has a unique structuring effect on the water in and around the cells of the body. This structured water has an electrical charge, and NIR light strengthens that charge. In this way, NIR light adds power to a battery that we each have in us at all times, a battery that is vital for our overall health and vitality.
The most important cancer-focused injection therapy utilized at Immersion Health is called Helixor. This is a mistletoe extract that has been extensively studied, tested and utilized in the conventional European oncology community. Helixor strongly activates the anti-cancer immune system while at the same time accomplishing several other important goals in cancer control. Carefully matching the type and dose of Helixor to each patient, Helixor injections span over several weeks and serve as ongoing support to all cancer patients. Helixor can and should be used in conjunction with most conventional therapies to protect against side effects of those therapies. In addition to subcutaneous injections, Dr. Nigh also uses Helixor in IV therapy, often combining it with high-dose vitamin C for a powerful immune-activating IV drip.
Low Level Laser Therapy
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a powerful, safe and painless therapy with an extremely wide range of uses. Immersion Health has a Class 3b red and infrared laser that can penetrate the body to a depth of several centimeters. It is used to treat both acute and chronic pain, local and systemic inflammation, skin infections, digestive disorders, headaches, neurological conditions, fibromyalgia, hair loss, tinnitus and hundreds of other conditions.
The nutrition program implemented in our cancer care program is intensive and unique. It is directed by Maria Zilka, one of the most experienced and skilled cancer-focused nutrition therapists in the country. Grounded in the most recent scientific understanding of cell metabolism, Maria is implementing a wide range of therapeutic diets with patients of Immersion Health, including a calorie-restricted ketogenic diet used with some cancer patients. Used in conjunction with the full set of other metabolic therapies, the diet is a foundation upon which the other therapies build and gain strength.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF)
The PEMF system at Immersion Health is the most advanced of its kind. Integrating heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback, patients lie on a comfortable pad for up to an hour while very low intensity pulsed electromagnetic signals activate the healing potential of the autonomic nervous system. Using the HRV as a monitor, the system can adjust both frequency and waveform to optimize parasympathetic nervous system functioning.
In addition to being surrounded in these pulsed fields, patients wear an eye mask fitted with red LED lights that facilitate the development of the brain state appropriate to the time of day - alpha, beta, gamma or delta waves.
Ozone therapy is a cornerstone in the oxygen-based, or oxidative therapies. While breathing ozone can damage the lungs, ozone delivered to the body in many other ways is not only safe but a valuable therapy for delivering extra oxygen to cells. This makes it a central therapy in cancer treatment, treatment of infections by bacteria, viruses and parasites, anti-inflammatory treatment of metabolic and systemic diseases, and also for detoxification.
Ozone can be delivered to the body in a number of ways. Rectal, vaginal, ear and sinus insufflation are the most common, whereby specific quantities of ozone mixed with air are injected via syringe into that specific area. Rectal insufflation, in particular, will deliver ozone systemically to treat fatigue, pain, inflammation, autoimmune disease and general lack of vitality.
Dr. Nigh considers nutritional supplements to be important supporting players in a comprehensive treatment program. While there are often nutrients that have to be supplemented in order to achieve optimal health, it is virtually never the case that optimal health can be achieved through supplements alone. With this in mind, Immersion Health has a large medicinary of professional-quality supplements. Every item in our medicinary has been thoroughly researched and individually selected based on its unique metabolic effects.
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UVBI)
UVBI is a technique whereby a small quantity of blood is withdrawn from the body and into an IV bag. The blood is then allowed to infuse back into the body, but first, it passes through a chamber with an ultraviolet light inside.
UVBI causes cells infected with bacteria or viruses to rupture. At the same time UVBI is like shining a spotlight onto the immune cells of the blood. Ruptured cells "spill" those bacteria and viruses into the blood, where they are seen by the activated immune cells. This initiates a very powerful, systemic immune activation that dramatically enhances the clearance of those infections. There have been dozens of studies published on the health benefits of UVBI, mostly in Russia.
UVBI can be used alone in the treatment of autoimmune disease or is more commonly used in conjunction with ozone as described in the section.
