“Natural Pain Relief Requires Natural Relief! ” IMPROVING HEALTH & FITNESS

When we think of poor balance, we typically think of seniors using canes or walkers to get around, because they may fall. However, poor balance is actually a big contributor to sports injuries, common backache, neck pain, and headaches in younger people. In order to walk on two feet, adapt to bumpy surfaces such as grass, quickly run, turn, recover from a trip and more, we need a finely tuned balance system at all stages of life. Whether you are an active runner or just your average Joe, your balance systems are used thousands of times a day. How well tuned they are, dictates whether your muscles have to work too hard to do ordinary tasks or whether you can adapt to the strains of running, jumping and more. Most of the common declines in balance we experience are not noticed until they are quite severe. Use it or lose it The wonderful thing about your balance system is that you can always improve it. Whether you want to get rid of ordinary aches and pains, or are a high level athlete, focusing on proper balance and postural exercises can make a dramatic difference in your overall health and function.

Patient Testimonials

Quickly saw results!

“I was looking for a ‘real’ way to lose weight. When I was speaking with Dr. Jeff he told me his personal story. Due to the length of time I have known him I knew he wouldn’t try to tell me about something that didn’t work. I started the program, and couldn’t believe how quickly I saw results. I have lost 33 pounds in 5 months! I could not have done it without the incredible staff at Advanced Wellness. You are so friendly! It is always a joy to see everyone, thank you so very much!” – Jenn H.

“I had tried every diet and the gastric sleeve was my next stop if a medically supervised diet didn’t work. I must thank my friend Pam (who sees Christine as well) for referring me! I had tried Atkins, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, etc. As a child, I had been sent to weight loss camps three times. I had always lost 10-20 pounds and then put it back on plus more. The first week I didn’t know how I was going to manage but once Christine sent me menus, I then understood how to cook and prepare my food. Now I understand how to make this a lifestyle change, not a diet. I am no longer on my acid reflux medication that I have been on for 18 years! Christine you’re amazing!” – Robin T. A lifestyle change, not a diet!

“Just wanted to drop you a quick note on how you and Advanced Wellness have affected our lives. In July 2015, we came to you knowing we needed to make some major life changes but not knowing how to begin. You and the entire staff have taught us, without judging, what we needed to do to get healthy. The effect on our lives has been dramatic and we aren’t done yet! Learning how to eat healthy, exercising regularly and getting down to a healthy weight is truly addictive and we love it. The inches and pounds are coming off and it’s hard to express how much Barb and I appreciate the entire Advance Wellness staff and their support on our journey.

Regenerative medicine is a branch of medical science that includes the “process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function”. In other words, it is the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects. This exciting field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs in the body that utilizes the innate wisdom and healing potential of the body, stimulating previously irreparable organs and tissues to heal themselves. We all know the body has an inborn ability to heal itself. For example, when you cut your finger, does the Band-Aid do the healing? No. Hundreds of chemical processes occur to ultimately repair and heal your wound. Our bodies do this naturally. Using this understanding, scientists have developed a host of methods to induce bone and connective tissue growth and replace damaged cartilage. Among them are: Part Of An Amazing Medical Breakthrough In the Past 10 Years Called Regenerative Medicine

These treatments all have the potential to repair and replace damaged cartilage, muscles, tendons and ligaments and halt progression of deterioration and we are excited by the results we are seeing in our patients at Advanced Wellness. What does the future hold? By providing healthy, functional tissues and organs, regenerative medicine will improve the quality of life for so many individuals. Imagine a world where victims of spinal cord injuries can walk, and where weakened hearts are replaced; where knee and hip replacements are no longer required. This is the potential long-term promise of regenerative medicine. Our focus in regenerative medicine has been on the repair and replacement of degenerated tendons, cartilage, ligaments and spinal discs. Schedule an appointment to find out if you are a candidate for a regenerative medicine procedure. Free Regenerative Medicine Consult with Dr. Yen. 732-431-2155.

• Fibrin: uses your own blood to promote regeneration and repair • Exosomes: umbilical cord derived cell product that contains growth and anti-inflammatory factors • A2M or Alpha2 Macroglobulin which is a naturally occurring molecule found in your blood which when in concentrated doses acts as a powerful protector against cartilage breakdown. A2M attaches to and removes the destructive enzyme that damages cartilage cells and tissue in the joint or disc space.
