Treat Long Covid-19 with Oxygen? I Cenk Integrated Health

The inflammatory cytokine storm that is the hallmark sign of Covid-19 depletes the amount of Nitric Oxide in the bloodstream and therefore allows for myospasm of the small blood vessels with resultant hypoxia (oxygen deprivation). This ends up creating neurocognitive impairment and fatigue in the long term, thus Long Covid. Read More

Avoiding Back Surgery I Cenk Integrated Health

So why do some patients not seek the conservative, non-surgical approach to pain and wellness? Why are some patients so quick to have surgery, when alternatives do exist?

Almost as a cruel irony, none of the healthcare systems in Allegheny County are ranked in the Top 20 nationally when it comes to spinal surgery outcomes. Read More

Medicine... It's about INCOMES, not OUTCOMES!

As a country, we spend more than twice as much on healthcare dollars per person as any other wealthy nation in the world. Yet, we are literally dead last in morbidity/mortality (pun intended). Read More

Oxygen... Who Needs It???? I Cenk Integrated Health
