Introducing Dr. Weyrich

There is a growing body of evidence that disorders as varied as traumatic brain injury, post-concussive syndrome, autism, AD(H)D, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, stroke, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune diseases, irritable bowel, inflammatory bowel, Alzheimer's, diabetes, as well as other chronic and degenerative diseases, all share common features of hormone imbalances (thyroid, adrenal, sex, growth hormone), neurotransmitter imbalances, brainwave imbalances, immune system imbalances, inflammation, nutritional imbalances, gut dysbiosis, leaky gut, food sensitivities, and environmental toxicity.

Combining several different treatment techniques is often synergistic and achieves far better results than can be obtained from specialists who focus on only one modality. As such, these disorders all respond to variations on the same functional medicine diagnostic work-up and naturopathic treatment protocols using bio-identical hormones, amino acid testing and balancing, neurofeedback, nutrition, and immune system balancing. When appropriate, Dr. Weyrich also prescribes conventional medications to provide immediate relief while underlying causes are addressed more naturally. In some cases, Dr. Weyrich also provides manipulation and acupuncture.

Because Dr. Weyrich practices "outside the box" of conventional western medicine, many of the treatments he provides are not covered by insurance (Medicare, Medicaid, and Obama-Care insurance policies treat practitioners who step outside the government-approved "box" very harshly, with charges of fraud, waste, and abuse; if you like the care that you get from these government-approved programs - keep them! If not, then see Dr. Weyrich!).

Dr. Weyrich is BCIA-certified in Neurofeedback and in NeuroScience's Neuro-Endocrine program. He earned a PhD in Organic Chemistry from the University of Tennessee and graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. Dr. Weyrich is a physician licensed to practice as a Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD) in Arizona, has been a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging and an associate member of the American Academy of Pain Medicine. He is also certified in functional diagnostic medicine by the Functional Medicine University.

New Service

Dr. Orville Weyrich, Jr, PhD, NMD and Dr. Robert Gear, Jr, NMD, DC are proud to announce that they have recently completed training in the use of the Earth MyoVision system and have secured use of this special equipment at Payson Health and Wellness Center.

This system allows the objective quantification and documentation of spinal pain and soft tissue injury. The MyoVision system was developed by a NASA-trained scientist, and is considered the "gold standard" by the American Medical Association; it has also been acknowledged as valid by the Florida Supreme Court.

It helps provide answers to questions like:

This information is essential to doctors and patients who need to objectively document, when combined with appropriate clinical testing, to third party payors (insurance companies, workman's comp, medical examiners, etc) the best plan for further treatment, or that no further treatment is indicated.

The system works by combining dynamic measurement of joint motion (using a dual inclinometer) with simultaneous dynamic measurements (in microvolts) of paraspinal and/or sternocleidomastoid muscle activity. (I.e., surface electromyogram similar to recording of cardiac muscle contractions in microvolts with ECG).

The graphical presentation of the results provides definitive evidence of ligament pain resulting in muscle guarding, fasciculations, and/or abnormal muscle recruitment that cannot be "faked", thereby providing insight into the nature of the currently remaining problems.

For more information, please see the MyoVision FAQ.

Call to make an appointment to find out how Dr. Weyrich and Dr. Gear can help you. Complete MyoVision testing of cervical and lumbar flexion, extension, lateral flexion, and rotation, including a color print-out of the data and a 15 minute oral review is $75, while a written interpretive report is an additional cost (depending on the level of detail required), payable at time of service (no contingency or liens accepted).
