Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) provides 100% oxygen under pressure, which increases oxygenation of tissues. This increased oxygen hastens recovery from many inflammatory conditions including brain injury, chronic pain, neuropathy, musculoskeletal injuries, vasculopathy, and even migraines. HBOT therapy is an important part of our brain injury and mitochondrial repair program and is also used to optimize our regenerative therapies. Buy oxygen therapy now >

NeuroRehab for recovery from chronic illness
When we are battling a chronic disease, recovery seems insurmountable. Our NeuroRehab program addresses necessary nutrition and herbs, as well as sleep, movement, vagus nerve function, neuroplasticity, and regeneration.
What we put into our bodies influences the harmonious balance of our systems. But our dietary choices are complex with social, cultural, and habitual origins. Our team at the Center for Healing Neurology will work with you and use the power of food to heal your body.
Peptides are biologically active and play critical roles in cellular signalling. Several peptides have been shown to have pronounced effect on systemic and neuroinflammation and are a key component in our brain repair programs. Made up of amino acids, peptides are efficient catalysts for physiological processes such as neurotransmitter metabolism and mitochondrial function. Our current offerings for neuroprotection and neuroprevention are included in our programs for TBI, Cognitive Decline, Autoimmunity, Chronic Pain, Regeneration, Weight Loss, and Optimal Wellness.
Dr. Ilene Ruhoy is available for phone consulting to answer your questions, help manage symptoms or disease, or guide in healthy lifestyle choices.
Prolotherapy is a method of injection treatment designed to stimulate healing. It stimulates an inflammatory response recruiting fibroblast, growth factors, and other collagen building precursors to the area of injury. Prolotherapy is a minimally invasive therapy that utilizes your body’s own ability to heal. This therapy is used for chronic myofascial pain, back pain, osteoarthritis, and ligament/tendon injuries or sprains. Prolotherapy is an effective long- term solution rather than a temporary measure such as drugs or cortisone. Learn more about our regenerative medicine services.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves using your own blood plasma and platelets as an enriched source of growth factors and cytokines directly at the site of injury. This allows for growth, repair and strengthening of the tissue as well as pain reduction. PRP’s advantage over prolotherapy is placing your body’s own growth and healing factors in a concentrated location at the site of injury rather than having them travel to the site of injury. PRP is indicated for tendonitis/tendon tear, ligament sprain/tears, muscle strains/tears, plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injuries, and chronic joint pain. Learn more about our regenerative medicine services.
Second Opinion Clinic
Center for Healing Neurology recognizes that our unique perspective from the integrative neurology, environmental toxicology, neuromuscular and mitochondrial specialty, functional medicine and Ayurvedic perspectives may offer new insight into chronic symptoms from which standard approaches have not offered relief. We are newly offering a Second Opinion Clinic service in which you collect and send all of your previous records, labs, pathology reports and any other evaluation you’d like to include, and we will quote an hourly estimate for the review and report. Learn more about our second opinion clinic…
Stem Cell Therapy
We are investigating the use of Adipose Derived Stromal vascular Fraction (SVF) for patient-funded clinical research and deployment for joint repair and systemic inflammatory conditions under IRB protocols. Our approach is integrative and supports stem cell function with other forms of regenerative care.
Our food and dietary choices do not always provide all the nutrients, vitamins, and elements we need for optimal wellness. Broad approaches such as multi-vitamins are generally not effective since they do not contain proper dosages, but supplementation that is targeted to the symptom or disease can help maintain balance. We will guide you towards more targeted supplementation for optimal efficiency and effectiveness.
Traumatic Brain Injury
The Center for Healing Neurology offers help to those who have suffered any level of TBI. Our program is personalized based on the mechanism of action, the symptoms, and the impact on quality of life. It includes a complete history and physical examination and further diagnostics which may include imaging, autonomic nervous system testing, neuroendocrine evaluation, electrophysiology, and more. Treatment focuses on returning functionality to your life in the best way we can and may include appropriate use of pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, nutritional guidance, biocranial therapy, compression training, regenerative medicine, and more.

Toxicology and De-toxification
Our world can be toxic and this can lead to sub-optimal health and wellbeing. While a former contractor with the EPA, Dr. Ruhoy’s doctoral dissertation researched pharmaceutical residues in our waters and her follow-up paper addressed optimal prescribing by physicians to reduce risk of exposure. She applies this knowledge when considering how a patient’s environment is contributing to their symptoms.
The Vasper system combines compression, liquid cooling, and interval training to drive your body’s production of growth and recovery hormones, delivering the most significant benefits of high-intensity exercise in an efficient and low-impact 21-minute workout.
Vasper interval training with compression and cold exposure optimizes neuroplasticity and results in increased functional connectivity for improved attention, muscle strength, cognition, and mood without the residua of fatigue. We are so enamored by its ability to heal, it is now a critical component of CHN’s comprehensive neurorehab program for recovery after chronic illness.
