Functional medicine doctor opens Epigenetics Healing Center in South KC
By Christina McDonough Hunt
Can intravenous vitamin C infusions knock out COVID-19, the infection caused by the coronavirus? Yes, says Jay Goodbinder, a doctor of naturopathic medicine and a chiropractic internist who recently moved his Epigenetics Healing Center from Overland Park to south Kansas City.
According to Dr. Goodbinder, high dose 50,000 mg infusions not only combat infectious disease, but “help with everything.”
Dr. Goodbinder specializes in epigenetic science, which he describes as the “study of biological mechanisms that will switch genes on and off.” He has been featured on CBS, NBC and The Ask BonBon Show. He also is the author of a book, “Defending Your Life,” that helps people find their life purpose, and in June he will be speaking at the New York Academy of Medicine alongside other celebrity doctors such as Dr. Oz.
He says his Epigenetics Healing Center focuses on holistic, functional medicine—ways to help people look and feel younger and get rid of aches and pains. “We take people with chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, asthma and more, and do the most in-depth testing to figure out why. We then give the power back to our patients so they can live a happy, healthy life.”
In addition to intravenous vitamin C, some of the treatments offered are stem cell-derived exosome therapy for joint restoration, anti-aging, hair restoration and more, IV nutrient therapy, bio-identical hormone replacement and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
The center’s staff includes a nurse practitioner, a neurologist, a sports chiropractor and a pediatric chiropractor. There’s also a holistic health educator who offers educational classes to help patients learn to live their lives independent from long-term doctor assistance.
“We have a great reputation,” Dr. Goodbinder commented. “We’ve worked with people worldwide, including royalty and celebrities, because we focus on finding ways to solve health problems.”
The healing center is a new facility located at 800 E. 101st Terrace. The 4,000-square-foot space features 14 patient rooms, three hyperbaric oxygen chambers (for treating fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and other conditions), offices and a lobby.
“We are in a true world-class facility,” he said. “We can expand how we wanted to.”
He encourages anyone interested in receiving a vitamin C infusion to schedule an appointment soon because a $25 G6PD blood test is first needed to determine eligibility, and the results take seven days to come back.
“It’s best to go ahead and get the test now so you can get the infusion if you need it instead of having to wait a week when you are sick.”
Dr. Goodbinder emphasized that there is hope in overcoming an illness. He tells patients they do have a voice.
“Don’t ever let someone take your power away,” he said. “You don’t have to take medications your whole life. Come and schedule a consultation and let us help you live a happy, healthy life.”
