CPMHA State-of-the-Art Treatment Wing

Our vision is to have a strategic partnership with a cutting-edge Children’s Health Care Foundation facility in Palm Beach County, Florida. Our goal is to help children symptoms and reduce possible side effects and stress that can come from prescribed medications with our alternative treatments. The concept is to have pediatric treatments in a compassionate environment. Currently, there are no facilities in America that house all these treatments under one roof. These programs could not only benefit the children but the entire family in a non-stressful and compassionate facility. We hope to create this one-of-a-kind wing to provide much needed alternative treatment programs for the whole family, with the goal of it being minimal or no fees attached to the patient and family.

The mental health issues that CPMHA are trying to combat do not discriminate no matter your political stance, your religious beliefs, your gender, your age or your race.

We have attached articles and links below for further research, but there is a library of research that backs up our medical data that can be given when we discuss this further. 

Treatments to be included

kids hyperbaricHyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been used to treat a variety of conditions and has shown possible efficacy for treating vascular dementia (VaD) in experimental and preliminary clinical studies. To assess the efficacy and safety of HBOT for VaD, used alone or as an adjunct treatment.

Pediatric Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Pediatric hyperbaric oxygen therapy benefits:

HBOT allows your child’s lungs to procure more oxygen, which increases oxygen levels in the blood. This increase in oxygen helps your child’s body regain proper levels of gases in the blood and increase tissue function.

cryotherapyBecause cryotherapy is new, some potential benefits are not yet proven. Cryotherapy might be a safe alternative treatment and preventative for many ailments.

  • Pain relief and muscle healing
  • Weight Loss
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Preventing dementia
  • Preventing and treating cancer
  • Reducing anxiety and depression

Sep 15, 2017 – May help prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

It’s thought that this may be an effective treatment because the anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects of cryotherapy could help combat the inflammatory and oxidative stress responses that occur with Alzheimer’s. 

1. Reduces migraine symptoms

Cryotherapy can help treat migraines by cooling and numbing nerves in the neck area.  One study found that applying a neck wrap containing two frozen ice packs to the carotid arteries in the neck significantly reduced migraine pain in those tested. It’s thought that this works by cooling the blood passing through intracranial vessels. The carotid arteries are close to the skin’s surface and accessible.

2. Numbs nerve irritation

Many athletes have been using cryotherapy to treat injuries for years, and one of the reasons why is because it can numb pain. The cold can actually numb an irritated nerve. Doctors will treat the affected area with a small probe inserted into the nearby tissue. This can help treat pinched nerves or neuromas, chronic pain, or even acute injuries.

3. Helps treat mood disorders

The ultra-cold temperatures in whole-body cryotherapy can cause physiological hormonal responses. This includes the release of adrenaline, noradrenaline, and endorphins. This can have a positive effect on those experiencing mood disorders like anxiety and depression. One study found that whole-body cryotherapy was actually effective in short-term treatment for both.

4. Reduces arthritic pain

Localized cryotherapy treatment isn’t the only thing that’s effective at treating serious conditions; one study found that whole-body cryotherapy significantly reduced pain in people with arthritis. They found that the treatment was well-tolerated. It also allowed for more aggressive physiotherapy and occupational therapy as a result. This ultimately made rehabilitation programs more effective.

5. May help treat low-risk tumors

Targeted, localized cryotherapy can be used as a cancer treatment. In this context, it’s called “cryosurgery.” It works by freezing cancer cells and surrounding them with ice crystals. It’s currently being used to treat some low-risk tumors for certain types of cancer, including prostate cancer.

6. May help prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s disease

While more research is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of this strategy, it’s theorized that whole-body cryotherapy could help prevent Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia.  It’s thought that this may be an effective treatment because the anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects of cryotherapy could help combat the inflammatory and oxidative stress responses that occur with Alzheimer’s.

7. Treats atopic dermatitis and other skin conditions

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease with signature symptoms of dry and itchy skin. Because cryotherapy can improve antioxidant levels in the blood and can simultaneously reduce inflammation, it makes sense that both localized and whole-body cryotherapy can help treat atopic dermatitis. Another study (in mice) examined its effect for acne, targeting the sebaceous glands.

Risks and side effects

The most common side effects of any type of cryotherapy are numbness, tingling, redness, and irritation of the skin. These side effects are almost always temporary. Make an appointment with your doctor if they don’t resolve within 24 hours.

You should never use cryotherapy for longer than is recommended for the method of therapy you’re using. For whole body cryotherapy, this would be more than four minutes. If you’re using an ice pack or ice bath at home, you should never apply ice to the area for more than 20 minutes. Wrap ice packs in a towel so you don’t damage your skin.

Those with diabetes or any conditions that affect their nerves should not use cryotherapy. They may be unable to fully feel its effect, which could lead to further nerve damage.

Tips and guidelines for cryotherapy

If you have any conditions you want to treat with cryotherapy, make sure you discuss them with the person assisting with or administering your treatment. It’s always a good idea to consult your doctor before using any type of therapy.

If receiving whole body cryotherapy, wear dry, loose-fitting clothing. Bring socks and gloves to protect from frostbite. During therapy, move around if possible, to keep your blood flowing.

If you’re getting cryosurgery, your doctor will discuss specific preparations with you beforehand. This may include not eating or drinking for 12 hours beforehand.


There is plenty of anecdotal evidence and some research supporting the claims that cryotherapy can offer health benefits, but whole-body cryotherapy is still being researched. Because it’s still being researched, talk to your doctor or healthcare provider to assess whether it’s right for you.

saunaSauna Therapy

Regular sauna use is linked with a lower risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Frequent heat exposure from sauna use throughout the week is associated with a lower risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, according to a first-of-its-kind study by researchers at the University of Eastern Finland (UEF).

IV Vitamin Therapy

What is IV vitamin therapy?

The process works by providing the user with a direct infusion of vitamins and minerals, like high doses of vitamin C or magnesium. Receiving vitamins through an IV allegedly allows the nutrients to bypass the digestive system for a quicker shot of vitality

Acupuncture Therapy

Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites–commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. The most common method used to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin.

Meditation Therapy

Meditation is the practice of turning one’s attention to a single point of reference. It can involve focusing on the breath, on bodily sensations, or on a word or phrase, known as a mantra. In other words, meditation means pivoting away from distracting thoughts and focusing on the present moment.

My vision is to have a meditation room for children to learn the incredible power of meditation from a trained professional and their parents can join them if they would like.  This is a practice that can help anyone.
