CHINESE DIETARY THERAPY
What we eat is incredibly important to our health and even more important if we have already become ill. This is true for all ages. A set of dietary guidelines, to suit the individual is developed to assist in both the healing process and the maintenance of well-being.
A healing technique that incorporates Massage, Acupressure and Qi Gong. The emphasis is on balancing and strengthening the body’s own energy to both combat and prevent illness. Tuina can be used on its own or in conjunction with acupuncture treatments
ACUPUNCTURE FOR CHILDREN
Paediatric Acupuncture is a safe, trusted, non-invasive and effective treatment for many childhood conditions. Kids can be treated from 3 months to teenage. Only sterile extra fine disposable needles are used in this practice. It is not painful; the child only feels a slight tingling sensation, nothing like an immunization. Children are very sensitive and responsive to acupuncture and so treatments are short, often taking only a few minutes. We have lots of fun toys for the kids - they play with them and become relaxed and distracted. Most children really do enjoy coming and look forward to their treatments.

Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that emphasizes diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the belief that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system. The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, especially manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissues; treatment may also include exercises and health and lifestyle counseling.
Naturopathic Medicine is a system of medicine that focuses, through the use of non-toxic natural therapies, on the prevention and treatment of diseases. No chemical medications, surgery or other invasive procedures are used in Naturopathy.
Naturopathy, sometimes referred to as natural medicine, is a largely scientific approach said to assist nature, support the body's own innate capacity to achieve optimal health and facilitate the body's inherent healing mechanisms.
Naturopathic Medicine is based on seven principles:
1.Do no harm (primum no nocere)
2.Nature has healing powers (vis medicatrix naturae)
3.Identify and treat the cause (tolle causam)
4.Treat the whole person
5.The physician is a teacher
6.Prevention is the best cure
7.Establish health and wellness (education)
Philosophy of Naturopathic Medicine:
Naturopathic Doctors assert that diseases are the body's effort to purify itself, and that cure results from increasing the patient's vital force. We claim to stimulate the body's natural healing processes by ridding it of waste products and toxins. At first glance, this approach may appear reasonable. However, a closer look will show that naturopathy's philosophy is simplistic.
The notion of a vital force or life force - a non-material force that transcends the laws of chemistry and physics - originated in ancient times. Historians call it the doctrine of vitalism. Previously, no scientific evidence could support this doctrine, but a huge body of knowledge, including the entire discipline of organic chemistry, and very much recently Quantum Physics have started to come in to play.
Vitalistic practitioners maintain that diseases should be treated by stimulating the body's ability to heal itself rather than by only treating symptoms. Homoeopaths, for example, claim that illness is due to a disturbance of the body's vital force, which they can correct with special remedies; Acupuncturists claim that disease is due to imbalance in the flow of life energy (chi or Qi), which they can re-balance by inserting and vibrating needles in the skin; Chiropractors claim to assist the body's innate intelligence by adjusting the patient's spine; Naturopaths speak of Vis Medicatrix Naturae.; Ayurvedic physicians refer to "prana." And so on.
The energies suggested by vitalists cannot be measured by scientific methods.
According to a comprehensive report presented to the United States Congress in 1970 by the National Association of Naturopathic Physicians (NANP):
“Naturopathy . . . is the technique of prevention and treatment of human disease, which emphasizes assisting nature. It can embrace minor surgery and the use of nature's agencies, forces, processes and products, introducing them to the human body by any means that will produce health-yielding results.”
Naturopathy is based upon the tendency of the body to maintain a balance and to heal itself. The purpose of naturopathic medicine is to further this process by using natural remedies . . . as distinct from orthodox medicine (allopathy), which seeks to combat disease by using remedies which are chosen to destroy the causative agent or which produce effects different from those produced by the disease treated.
Naturopathy places priority upon the following conditions as the bases for ill health:
2.Abnormal composition of blood and lymph;
3.Maladjustment of muscles, ligaments, bones, and neurotropic disturbances;
4.Accumulation of waste matter and poison in the system; germs, bacteria, and parasites which invade the body and thrive because of toxic states which may provide optimum conditions for their success.
5.Consideration of hereditary influences,
In applying naturopathic principles to healing, the practitioner may administer one or more specified physiological, mechanical, nutritional, manual, phytotherapeutic, or animal devices or substances. The practitioner's end aim is to remove obstacles to the body's normal functioning, applying natural forces to restore its recuperative facilities. Only those preparations and doses, which act in harmony with the body economy, are utilized, to alter perverse functions, cleanse the body of its catabolic wastes, and promote its anabolic processes.
The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) states that "naturopathic medicine has its own unique body of knowledge, evolved and refined for centuries" and is "effective in treating all health problems, whether acute or chronic."
What are the differences between Naturopathic and Allopathic Medicine?
According to a 1989 AANP brochure, the main difference [between naturopathic and conventional medicine] is in the philosophic approach. Naturopathic physicians treat patients by restoring overall health rather than suppressing a few key symptoms. Naturopathic physicians are concerned with finding the underlying cause of a condition and applying treatments that work in alliance with the natural healing mechanisms of the body rather than against them.
Naturopathic treatments result less frequently in adverse effects, or in the chronic conditions that inevitably arise when the cause of disease is not identified and thus left untreated.
Naturopathic Medicine, practiced today in Western countries and open societies, is a form of complementary medicine to allopathy, meaning it enhances the quality of the outcome of conventional treatments.
What medical subjects are taught in Naturopathic Schools?
Today, in North America, Naturopathic Medicine, as a form of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, is taught in accredited schools after all the basic medical sciences such as Human Anatomy and Physiology, Histology and Cytology, Biochemistry, Pathology and so on. It addition to those, it includes a minimum of 7 basic modalities in natural therapies including:
1.Clinical Nutrition (food, diet and nutritional supplementations)
2.Botanical Medicine (medicinal herbs)
3.Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
5.Physical Medicine, Body Manipulation & Chiropractic techniques
6.Counseling, life-style modifications
Many other natural modalities, such as techniques and technologies in Quantum Physics for further natural diagnosis and treatments may be selected by the practitioners according to their interests and experience. Reflexology, osteopathy, aromatherapy, many other forms of therapeutic massages, are the other effective natural modalities.
Important message for health conscious people to know :
In our world today, due to rapid growth in the number of chronic and degenerative diseases among human, increasing side effects of technologies and scientific advancements that have dragged people far away from their natural environments, adverse effects of pharmaceuticals, as well as enhancement of education and health consciousness, there is a high demand for natural medical interventions which is increasing and in fact, Naturopathic Medicine can play a major role in satisfying these needs and restoring health and preventing diseases by a more comprehensive and reliable philosophy and approach.
1. Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Slow learning in children
(Official permission by the DOHS for all the activities, claims and advertisements)
A new vision for prevention and improvement of chronic health disorders was established by Dutch researchers about 6 years ago to combat autism as a multi-system dysfunctional disease. This reliable method of diagnosis and safe treatment now is performed in the UAE and by cooperation of highly sophisticated European laboratory. Synergy Nutriceutica BV has developed the ability to test urine specimens by the means of Quantum analysis to recognize Negative Factors (groups of microbes and toxins/ contaminants) that can disturb health and may cause imbalances in the functions of different organs and systems of the body. As we know now, Autism, learning disabilities and ADHD to a great extend are multi-functional disorders that result as the loss of harmony. Therefore, a treatment plan has been designed to restore health and vitality in a step by step process of cleansing and rebuilding:
• Cleansing Phase to clean up the body from active microbes and toxic loads by proper nutrition and special nutritional supplements including probiotics (good and friendly bacteria). This phase will take up to 3 months to complete.
• Rebuilding Phase to provide building block materials to the body in order to strengthen the weakened organs and different systems. These materials are also provided in form of nutritional supplements (such as high quality special vitamins, minerals and a supply of essential fatty acids) designed by Synergy Nutriceutica.
Other parts of this treatment includes Dietary Modifications, counseling and training to the parents and/ or the first care givers in how to treat these troubled children.
The improvement of such children is amazing and there has been no other treatment method as affective and profound as this. We are working now with autistic centers not only in the UAE, but the other Gulf countries and Iran.
There have been repeated newspaper articles about our autism protocols published in Daily Mail in the UK; a few Dutch local papers and health magazines, AL Riyadh Newspaper in Saudi Arabia; and Gulf News, Al Seha Va Al Teb, and Al Khaleej in the UAE in both Arabic and English languages. The great news is that this protocol can be used even in healthy looking children to not only improve their health and well-beings, but to enhance learning powers in them by helping their brain work in a more efficient way.
2. Clinic for Autoimmune Diseases
Auto-immune diseases are the result of imbalances of the immune function when the over-stimulated system reacts unnaturally to self. In our view, it is obvious that some factors drag the body out of its balance and force the immune system to react in an improper manner by attacking its own tissues. We see this in Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), SLE, Asthma, many allergies, some cases of diabetes, and so on.
Through analysis via quantum approach, it is possible to recognize many Negative Factors (disturbing factors) and by eradicating them, it is possible to provide another chance for the same vital force to correct itself. For fact, it is worth it to try!!!
Furthermore, many other natural medical approaches and treatments such as TCM (acupuncture), Orthomolecular Medicine, Botanical Medicine, allergy treatments and food sensitivity reductions, detoxification, stress compensation, and addressing the mental/ emotional states, always accelerate the improvement of chronic diseases.
3. Clinic for Chronic & Degenerative Diseases
A chronic health disorder is called such since the lack of proper diagnosis for the real cause and a permanent treatment. However, with the help of Natural Medicine and proper nutritional/ herbal supplements, it is always possible to improve such diseases, prevent their occurrence and/ or reduce their progression.
Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Stroke, Heart diseases, osteoporosis (loss of bones) and joint disorders, diabetes, obesity, PMS and menopause, insomnia, Prostate enlargement, migraine, chronic pain, and many forms of cancers are some examples of such diseases.
Other conditions such as infertility, lack of Energy and stamina, and chronic weakness in sexual performance are also among the chronic dysfunctions that can be improved by natural medical interventions.
4. Comprehensive Weight-Loss program
Comment: Over 70% of UAE locals are suffering from overweight. Obesity is a disease that can cause severe and health threatening consequences such as diabetes, heart disease, joint disease, respiratory dysfunctions, skin problems, infertility, and many cancers. In addition to physical issues, there are various mental negativities also involved with obesity including depression, loss of positive image, introversion, and disconnection with the society in many cases that can range between moderate to very severe conditions.

Our Reshaping Slimming machine is a unique electrical device, designed based on the laws of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In every one-hour session (including the special abdominal massage), the machine would give a tremendous amount of exercise to the body (an excellent compensation for people with no exercise and sedentary life style) up to the individual’s tolerance to liquefy fat deposits around waist, as well as using them as a source of energy. In addition, the special pads of the machines affects the acupuncture points on the abdomen to stimulate and increase the metabolism even further.
2. Proellixe Vibration (Newly Added): The newest European technology in accelerating fat loss process and reshaping the body. Proellixe is the only oscillating vibrational equipment for VibroRollage, an overall body treatment which feels and acts as a skin rolling massage with a thousand micro-rollers.
Attention: Only 10 minutes per session of exercise with this machine is equal to 1 hour of workout in a gym (!!!)
The use of Proellixe is easy, fun and involves the least amount of effort. Its benefits include:
1. Improvement of peripheral microcirculation and the oxygenation of sub-cutaneous tissue
2.Enhancement of lymphatic circulation to drain extra water trapped within tissues
3.Stimulation of fat metabolism (lypolysis) through the action of epinephrine
4.Promotion of anti-aging effects of the connective tissue by the boosting the activity of fibroblasts for a better production of collagen and elastine
5.Stimulation of muscle tonic stretch reflex
6.Strengthening core muscles and simultaneously enhancing posture, as well as burning many calories in every session
8.Increase in “Endorphin” production, a natural substance to feel good
• Dietary Recommendations and Diets:
It is crucial to follow a comprehensive diet program for a successful weight loss. It should provide not only enough nutrients for a good body function, but also to help the body lose the extra fat. Therefore, as a part of our package, individualized low calorie and high quality diet programs are designed according to the needs of the client during and up to 4 weeks after the treatment period. However, there is no need to stay on a diet forever. It will not work that way and because people lose every time on diet and regain it afterwards, it can create a “Yoyo” effect, causing even more resistance to future weight managements. People should enjoy foods and they have to be able to eat everything and this is possible only if they have a good knowledge of nutrition and lifestyle to be able to enjoy the world. Therefore, dieting in our programme is a short-term strategy to shed the extra pounds faster.
• Natural Food Supplements:
It is possible to expedite the fat loss process by the use of non-invasive natural supplements. They are used as a general support for a normal body function and based on research and they are to be with as little side effect as possible and. The goal is to influence the limbic system (the centre of emotions in brain), liver (as the main organ of the digestive tract), and to turn fats into muscles by affecting on stem cells.
• Optional Home Colon cleansing kit & Detoxification:
It is done at home by the client to cleanse the colon. Due to its nature, it is offered optionally to eradicate inflammations and discomforts in colon and the other lower parts of the digestive system. This is a very important step to make the body free of toxins, especially in people with digestive irregularities.
• Allergy Test and a general body check up by Quantum Technology:
It is offered to all of the clients as a part of the weight loss package to evaluate if there are any allergies and/ or sensitivities exist in the patient. In addition, it is a perfect machine to determine the quality and effectiveness of digestive system, enzymes, nutritional excess or deficiencies, obstacles to health, and many more. It will also provide many other important information to the physician about the real picture of the patient regarding health and disease.
To help people with emotional restrains, some counseling programs are offered by Dr. Rashvand during the weight loss program. In addition, having a positive attitude always goes a long way. For a better result in weight loss, there should be little mental resistance to change. Trust in yourself and do not lose the hope even if there might be no dramatic change initially. .
This is one of the strength of Synergy’s Fat Loss Program to help people eat everything they want for ever while being able to manage their weight at all time. Why some people get fat all the time while they eat even less than their friends? It has possibly a lot to do with a lack of knowledge in choosing the right type of food. It means people should be knowledgeable enough to recognize unhealthy foods and wrong eating habits, so that they can take control of their weight at any time. Through this program, the clients will hopefully learn a lot about the basic facts regarding foods, diets, and eating habits to keep their lives in a better health. An informatory booklet, “A Complete Guideline for a Successful Weight Loss”, has been designed to increase the basic knowledge regarding the requirements of a permanent weight loss. By browsing through the pages, many questions and concerns in this regard are supposed to be answered.
Attention: Complete or Partial Weight loss packages are available to suit your needs.
