Here’s How Regenerative Treatments Help You Heal

At Renew, we work together with you to determine what your present state of health is and help determine the “root cause” of your symptoms and health problems. Then we can develop a plan to improve or restore your body’s best healing potential. Because we are a functional medical clinic our regenerative practices can be integrated into your Functional Treatment Plan. We are able to better diagnose and create successful treatment outcomes because we:

  • Evaluate and Treat Intestinal or Gut Health - This is where it all begins - what you eat, and what your body efficiently digests, and then what it able to absorb, is what makes it work properly.
  • Evaluate and Treat Nutritional and Biochemical Abnormalities - this often reflects dysfunction in gut health noted above!
  • Evaluate and Replace needed Hormones
  • Evaluate and Treat Stored Toxins - these interfere with, block, or even poison metabolic processes and lead to ill health!

This is what we call Functional Regenerative Medicine. We feel regenerative medicine is the future of healthcare – helping your body’s cells, organs and tissues restore and establish normal function. The earlier you start, the greater your chances of success and avoiding Dis-ease. Dr. Rohde’s goal for you is to help you drop dead healthy at 100!

Regenerative Treatment Options

Each of these Regenerative or Healing options has a specific place in a personalized treatment program. Each of these has a dedicated page for more in depth information – just click the title links.


Ozone is Supercharged Oxygen. Every cell in the body needs oxygen and glucose to function. When we expose oxygen to an electric current the O2 molecule dissociates and rearranges into an O3 molecule. This molecule has unique healing properties in the body. It is used in almost all countries of the world to treat infections like bacteria, viruses, molds with its oxidant action that kills these disease producing invaders. Our own cells have a potent anti-oxidant system which protects them from the potent oxidation effects of ozone.  There is NO Resistance to ozone unlike that which develops to antibiotics so the killing effects are unlimited. Ozone is even used to treat cancer in other countries.

Ozone works in many ways in the body. Click on the links below to get more details

  • Major Autohemotherapy

This treatment removes a small amount of blood from your body into a glass IV bottle which is then treated with high dose ozone under pressure to increase the amount of ozone that attaches to the red blood cells. This is then re-infused into the body where it has a wonderful healing effect.

  • UVBI

Combining ozone with UV light to help treat bacterial, viral, and fungal infections is a winning combination. Using UVBI is like making your own immunization against whatever infection you have in your body. Like using killed influenza to make a vaccine. The immune system makes antibodies to the dead viral particles and can then go after and destroy other similar virus particles found anywhere in the body. UVBI helps balance the immune system so it is extremely useful to help manage Autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto’s, Lupus, Rheumatoid, Psoriasis and others – without side-effect prone expensive pharmaceuticals.

  • Prolozone

Ozone combined with a mixture of healing supplements like Procaine (a healing anesthetic), Dextrose, B12, and also Traumeel (a homeopathic anti-inflammatory medication). This can help treat acute and chronic joint pain and inflammation. It stimulates healing and tightening of damaged ligaments to help restore normal function. It can also be used to inject trigger points to stimulate healing and relieve pain from these muscle spasm knots.

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP

PRP is a concentration of your body’s healing plasma proteins that is derived from your own blood by processing it in a centrifuge to remove red blood cells. The resulting PRP is a wonderful product to boost repair and healing when it is injected back into a specific body area. We have learned that we can significantly amplify that healing effect by concentrating those growth factors and injecting them into areas of the body that need special healing attention. The beauty of using PRP is that the side effects of PRP injections are limited only to the injection itself because the PRP is created from your own blood so your body will not reject PRP or react negatively to it.

Simply stated, when platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is injected, then healing factors multiply and help grow new younger tissue. This has been proven by tissue biopsy studies. For example, an injured knee is injected with PRP and this signals the attraction of healing products from your body like your own stem cells. At times ultrasound guidance is used to place the PRP exactly where it is needed.

The Renew “O So Good Shot”

Why do we call it the “O So Good Shot”? Because it has so many regenerative and healing applications in the body – it’s O So Good! Let’s explore each of these areas that the “O So Good Shot” can help.

  • Sexual Enhancement

Both men and women benefit from PRP injections. Women have improved arousal and an improved ability to orgasm, often with a stronger orgasm. Men have increased size, both length and girth, and improved circulation with an improved ability to obtain an erection and also an improved ability to maintain erections. It can make medications like Viagra or Cialis work better and it can help improve the complications diabetes can cause with erections. This works beautifully and the benefit is augmented when combined with our Alma Duo sexual enhancement treatments.

  • Urinary Incontinence

A wonderful option for women with urinary incontinence issues. Injection of the PRP in the area under the urethra helps build collagen. This can help decrease or minimize urine loss with straining during an exercise session, coughing, or even simply laughing with a friend! This is a simple way to reduce or eliminate these socially embarrassing problems!! Combining this with local Bio-identical hormone therapy can also restore local blood flow that is diminished as hormones decrease through menopause and improve tissue function.

  • Cosmetic and Dermatologic Procedures

PRP is hugely beneficial in procedures to stimulate new collagen growth which unfortunately decreases with aging. Collagen is the scaffolding or structure that supports the skin and as it diminishes the aging changes become progressively more apparent. Unfortunately we accelerate this process over time by normal daily activities like whistling, drinking from a straw, frowning, prolonged exposure to sun, smoking, and even worse – the poor nutrition of the highly processed Standard American diet (SAD). This leads to the less than desirable appearance of wrinkles, tear troughs, nasolabial folds and others. It also helps with treatment of acne scars! PRP stimulates new collagen growth and helps minimize wrinkles and rejuvenates the face, hands, and other skin areas to erase years from your appearance. Imagine – a cosmetic boost that helps minimize the need for Botox and fillers!!

  • Osteoarthritis and Joint Injuries

These are a huge issue as are sports or work injuries. Inflamed painful joints interfere with our daily function. We can’t work, we can’t walk well, we can’t play sports, we can’t play with our grand kids, it even interferes with intimacy in a relationship! Unfortunately joints don’t heal well! They have a poor blood supply, and therefore a poor oxygen supply which is vital for healing. This is especially true as we age. This can slow recovery and healing to a snail’s pace. More studies are emerging that PRP helps improve joint lubrication which improves function. It also helps decrease inflammation and pain from injuries like a strained tendon or muscle, a rotator cuff injury, tennis elbow, bursitis, heel spurs and others and can even help to rebuild cartilage damaged by years of overuse or injured in an athletic or work event.

Regenerative Cell Therapy

Our Stem Cells are a vital part of our body’s healing and repair mechanism. When we were young, we had lots of stem cells that were fresh and energetic. Unfortunately our stem cells age as we do and so the repair mechanism also starts to slow as we age – it is the very definition of aging.  Think about how quickly a cut or injury healed when we were young or when we observe our kids or grandkids healing from an injury, and how that same process takes longer as we age! We have far fewer stem cells and the ones we have don’t work well as they are as old as we are. Is it any wonder why older people have joints that wear more quickly, don’t heal well and often end up having surgery? Surgery should be our last recourse as it can be fraught with complications like infections that can be disabling and even life-threatening.

Enter regenerative cell therapy. This wonderful regenerative modality is being used to boost or augment our body’s natural ability to heal. We can boost our own body’s ability to stimulate new stem cells and then also release more stem cells from our bone marrow to improve healing.

In summary, when looking for the best regenerative outcomes, at Renew, we look at your entire Functional Health Plan.  Could you simply do injections or infusions? Absolutely, but at Renew we are about helping you Live Your Best Life with the best possible outcomes.  This includes:

  • Changing your diet and lifestyle
  • Adding needed micronutrients through nutritional supplements to speed healing.
  •  Evaluating, Restoring, and Balancing Normal Hormone levels
  • Getting enough rest
  • Increasing your daily exercise and doing your physical therapy exercises.
  • Wearing joint braces if we are doing joint injections to help stabilize the areas 

We are pleased to offer these breakthrough regenerative medicine techniques at Renew

We look forward to helping you Live Your Best, Life!
