Earlier this week we welcomed Dr. Thom Lobe, MD, to the Malibu Beach Recovery Center staff roster as an independently affiliated physician. We believe Dr. Lobe will be an important addition to the clinical team and will bring new dimensions to our successful holistic treatment program.
Dr. Lobe is the founder and medical director of the Beneveda Medical Group in Beverly Hills. In addition to being a highly skilled surgeon and a pioneer in the field of Siamese twin separation, Dr. Lobe has extensive knowledge in naturopathic medicine.
He has developed a new medical specialty called "energy medicine" which can help to manage problems many consider resistant to conventional approaches such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight loss, osteoporosis, and others.
For years he has used his unique combination of western and holistic medical training skills to help clients with compulsive disorders. It was only a matter of time before he segued into the field of addiction. Luckily for our clients, he chose to begin here, with us, in the hills of Malibu.
To further enhance the efficiency of the Malibu Beach Recovery System for Treating Addiction -- which uses a French low glycemic diet, yoga breath work and food supplements to raise dopamine levels and start the repair of damaged brain chemistry -- Dr. Lobe plans to introduce some of his state of the art equipment.
Among the more interesting “machines” our clients are currently trying out is a Cranial Electro Stimulation (CES). First developed in the Soviet Union to treat for insomnia, it has since been used by millions of people around the world. Most research indicates CES, which Dr Lobe describes as a form of acupuncture, provides relief from anxiety, depression, insomnia and addictive behaviors through mild electrical stimulation of the brain. It also rebalances neurotransmitter activity, releasing serotonin and creating a sense of well being.
Clients are also being encouraged to use a Trinfinity8, sometimes called the "Crystal Meditation Machine." It is a new, non-medical, non-invasive technology which uses algorithms to give instructions to the body through numeric binary code. Dr. Lobe believes it is a simple yet profound concept that is truly evolutionary that will increase awareness and assist our clients in attaining a state of self-balance while working to restore vitality.
Dr. Lobe’s associate Dr. Barry Lomax, N.D., a naturopath, will also be seeing clients every week and working with the clinical team to enhance the regimen of food supplements and amino acids. More about Dr. Lomax in another blog.
