Functional Medicine

functional medicineMindSpa’s functional medicine program focuses on addressing the root cause of disease and symptomology using a primarily holistic approach. This can include nutritional, herbals, vitamins, IV therapy and other modalities as treatments.  By being integrative, one can incorporate both Eastern and Western medical practices into all treatments, whether preventive, diagnostic and/or therapeutic.

In functional medicine, the practitioner looks “upstream” to consider the complexity of the entirety of interactions in a patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness.  The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body, spirit) and external factors (physical and social environment) that affect total functioning.

Amniotic Therapy

Revolutionary Regenerative Health Care for Autoimmune Diseases, COPD, Wound and Tissue Repair, Sport’s Injuries, Arthritis, Headaches, Joint Pain

Amnio TherapyAmniotic fluid provide a protective environment abundant with essential nutrients, proteins, growth factors, and stem cells for the developing embryo throughout the pregnancy. With the family’s consent, these otherwise discarded tissues can be donated for medical use and provide life changing treatments for others in need. Clinicians have used amniotic tissue for over a century as a biologic dressing in a broad range of therapeutic applications. It has been generally recognized as an effective modality in advancing treatment of soft tissue defects, soft tissue trauma, tendonitis, tendinosis, chronic wounds, and localized inflammation. Characteristics unique to amniotic tissue and fluid make these biological structures an extremely safe and effective option for number of treatments. (Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Microbial, Anti-Fibrotic, Nutrient Rich Immune Privileged) Amnion-derived products harness the human body’s natural potential to regenerate tissue and return to a pre-wound state Scientists alike continue their efforts to unlock the amazing regenerative potential of the human amnion and amniotic fluid in more and more modern-day treatments. Currently, amnion-derived products have proven their value to focus the human body’s natural ability to regenerate at point of injury, and have shown promise in the future treatment of Parkinson’s disease and cancer.

Nutritional IV Therapy and Vitamin Injections

Intravenous Nutrient Therapy is the method of administering vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, amino acids, and other natural therapeutic substances directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract and liver, where many nutrients may be partially or fully lost. Intravenous Nutrient Therapy makes it possible to achieve much higher cellular levels of the specified nutrients, which have been shown to be effective in the treatment of many acute and chronic disease processes.

There are a wide range of clinical conditions that can be successfully treated with intravenous nutrient therapy. These include: Hypertension, Asthma, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Migraine, Depression, Cardiovascular Disease, Upper Respiratory Tract Infections, Seasonal Allergies, Athletic Performance, Cancer, HIV Infection, Congestive Heart Failure, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Neuropathy, and Diabetes.

IV Nutrient Therapy

Advantages of Intravenous Nutrition Therapy

  • Direct cellular nutrition
  • Bypasses intestinal malabsorption
  • Rapid and complete therapeutic effects
  • Condition specific therapeutic effects
  • Correct nutritional deficiencies
  • Achieve high serum concentrations not obtainable with oral or intramuscular administrations
  • Extremely safe

Intravenous Nutrient Therapies are cumulative. Nutrients can remain in the cells for months, thus each infusion produces additional benefit on top of the pervious one – enhancing one’s overall health exponentially! We offer a customized version of the Meyers’ cocktail, high dose Vitamin C, Glutathione, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and many other customized IV’s depending upon your deficiencies and recommendations by your practitioner.

Glutathione TherapyGlutathione IV

A small protein composed of three amino acids: Cysteine, Glutamic acid, and Glycine. Glutathione is involved in detoxification—it binds to toxins, such as heavy metals, solvents, and pesticides, and transforms them into a form that can be excreted in urine or bile. Glutathione is also the most important antioxidant. In preliminary research, dietary glutathione intake from fruit and raw vegetables has been associated with protection against some forms of cancer. Glutathione has also inhibited cancer in animal studies.

Glutathione is the most important molecule your body needs to stay healthy and prevent disease. Here are some of the following conditions that having the proper amounts of glutathione will not only prevent but will help eradicate.

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Anti-Aging
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma (Inhalation of glutathione available)
  • Autism
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Cancer
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Chronic Infections
  • Dementia
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Kidney Problems
  • Liver Disease
  • Lung Disease/COPD (Inhalation of glutathione available)
  • Parkinson’s disease

We offer glutathione as a part of our customized IV nutrient therapy.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

The Wilson Institute offers the most advanced technology in hyperbaric therapy. The hyperbaric chamber exposes patients to highly concentrated and therapeutic levels of oxygen. Through the increased pressure within the hyperbaric chamber, it saturates the body on a cellular level due to its great absorption. The Wilson Institute is the only clinic that offers this type of service in Sarasota. We offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy to infants, children, adolescents and adults for a wide range of symptoms ranging from ADD, anti-aging, autisim, infections, diabetes, depression, dementia, inflammation, leaky gut, neuropathy, Parkinson’s, Sport’s Injuries and Traumatic Brain Injuries.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Although the chamber is designed for individual use for a relaxing and spa like experience, it is spacious enough to accommodate a parent and child tandem treatment


The BEMER 3000 is a pulsed electromagnetic field therapy device that reduces pain, inflammation and platelet adhesion. Patients have also experienced improved sleep, regulated blood pressure and a strengthened immune system. The BEMER can be used as a nice add on with an IV due to its short eight minute treatment and amazingly therapeutic benefits that make IV’s even more absorbable. This higher absorption rate when combining the BEMER with an IV is due to the BEMER’S ability to open up a patient’s vasculature and increased circulation of necessary vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids contained in an IV.
