Keep your body in fat burning mode to keep your weight off for good!
One of our goals at Valhalla Wellness is to help you learn how to trigger fat-burning hormones so that you have leverage over them. Fat-burning hormones work through your liver which is why it’s so important to do a liver cleansing program two to four times a year. One way to cleanse and detoxify your body is by utilizing an infrared sauna.
What is Infrared?
Infrared is the band of light you perceive as heat. You can’t see infrared with the naked eye but you can feel this type of light in the form of heat. Infrared rays heat your body without having to heat the air around you. What are the Benefits of an Infrared Sauna?
Here's Dr. Ian Yamane to explain how an infrared sauna can help you.
How Does an Infrared Sauna Aid Weight Loss?
Calories are heat energy and are used to produce sweat. One gram of sweat requires approximately 0.586 calories. A moderately-conditioned person can easily sweat off 1,000 grams or more in one infrared sauna session. That’s the equivalent of burning more than 600 calories which is like running more than 5 miles! While this weight loss can be regained by rehydration with water, the calories expended in the process will not come back. In addition to burning calories, sweating also allows the body to release built up toxins naturally, even when you are not on a cleansing program.
The Difference Between Infrared Saunas and the Conventional Sauna at the Gym
Conventional saunas transfer heat by circulating hot air to warm your body from your head down. Infrared saunas warm your body indirectly allowing an in-depth heat in a more pleasant temperature providing more health benefits in a more enjoyable environment.
How Does the Infrared Sauna Detox You?
Since the infrared sauna heats from the core and makes us sweat, it removes toxins at a cellular level and uses the body’s natural ability to rid the waste. Detoxing the body has been proven to strengthen the body’s immune system, increase nutrient absorption and help with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune diseases and autism.
Most of us are not getting the nutrients we need through diet alone. In fact, a 2011 study revealed that 90% of Americans are undernourished, lacking in key nutrients like calcium, fiber, potassium, zinc, iron, vitamin D, and vitamin B-12.
Many of us take oral vitamin supplements to close that nutrient gap and make us feel better. Yet, those daily vitamins often fail to help our body reach optimal health and nutrition. And that’s why many people turn to injectable nutrients, also known as vitamin injections.
Vitamin Injections vs. Oral Supplementation
When you pop a vitamin pill in the morning, those nutrients enter the body through the digestive system. Your digestive system can become too saturated, limiting the amount of nutrients your body can actually absorb.
What your body can’t absorb is then excreted through urine or stool. This means there is no guarantee that your body is receiving enough nutrients through oral supplementation. Think about vitamin C, a common supplement. When we take too much vitamin C orally, the body reacts with loose stool and diarrhea.
A healthy, safe alternative to your daily over-the-counter vitamin is injectable nutrients, or vitamin injections. With injectable nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients are injected directly into the body. This can be done either intramuscularly (IM) or intravenously (IV). Injectables are more effective than oral supplementation because:
How Are Injectable Nutrients Administered?
Intramuscular (IM) Injections
IM injections are administered into the muscle belly. Common sites include the gluteus (buttocks) and deltoid (shoulder) muscles. This is a virtually pain-free injection, with most patients noticing little to no discomfort. As the needle enters the skin, however, there may be a small “pinch” sensation. Vitamin B-12 shots and B-complex shots are common IM injections.
Intravenous (IV) Pushes
Every patient is unique, so how often vitamin injections are needed depends on how your body responds to them. The effects of one IV push may last several weeks for one person, or several months for another. In some cases, your body may require weekly injections as it begins the healing process, but over time and as health returns, the effects will last longer and longer. Our doctors can recommend a protocol based on your current health condition and adjust it accordingly over time as symptoms improve. For a consultation with one of our doctors, call us today.
You will experience little to no side effects from injectable nutrient treatment. On rare occasions, some patients have experienced allergic reactions. However, this is usually a reaction to preservatives or specific nutrients that they are allergic to. For your protection, we recommend all patients alert our doctors to any known allergies, including those which require an EpiPen.
Choose Vitamin Shots for Immediate Benefits
Injectable nutrients are an ideal supplement solution for virtually anyone, from those in relatively good health to those suffering from a chronic disease. They are popular among celebrities like Madonna, Rihanna, Rita Ora, and Simon Cowell for their host of health benefits:

IM Methylcobalamin (B-12)
Vitamin B-12 is a water-soluble vitamin produced by microbes in the soil and intestinal tracts of animals. It can be found naturally in:
Vitamin B-12 deficiency is believed to be one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the world, affecting 39% of the U.S. population alone. Antacids, the use of antibiotics, and vegan and vegetarian diets are all contributors of this widespread deficiency. Patients with this deficiency may experience fatigue, weakness, poor moods, and low concentration. Vitamin B-12 injections are beneficial for every cell of the body and the function of nerves, the brain, and red blood cells.
Patients experiencing B-complex deficiency may have difficulty thinking, memory loss or anemia. IM B-Complex is a combination of the following ingredients:
IV Push Myers Cocktail
The Myers Cocktail is a combination of B vitamins, vitamin C, Calcium, and Magnesium. It is typically used to treat and reduce the symptoms of the following conditions:
IV Push Glutathione
Glutathione is a tripeptide made of cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. This antioxidant can be found in every cell of the body. It is vital for the mitochondria and energy of the body’s cells and neutralizes free radicals. It is also important for detoxification, helping the body recycle vitamins C and E. It has been shown to be effective in treatment of the following conditions:
These injections are intramuscular only. They target fatty deposits and increase metabolism of fat in the body. They also promote the export of fat from the liver. Combined with a healthy diet and exercise, they can stimulate fat removal and increase energy levels.
This lipotropic injection includes several important nutrients including:

Are you trying to remove stubborn fat, maybe even lose a couple inches? Then a lipo laser treatment is just what you need. It’s a safe, effective, non-surgical treatment to help you smooth out those difficult areas and alleviate any of your body concerns.
Not only does this technology remove fat and inches, but it also attacks cellulite. You know what we’re talking about: those stubborn areas of cellulite that simply cannot be removed through diet and exercise. With our non-invasive lipo laser, you can make those a thing of the past.
What makes these laser treatments so unique is that they target cellulite, fat and loose skin all at the same time. As fat cells are broken down, the body naturally responds to treatment, and the result is a loss of fat and inches. When choosing which form of body sculpting in Las Vegas is right for you, i-Lipo should be at the top of the list. At Valhalla Wellness, we offer both cutting edge treatments. Remember, no surgery required!
If you’re looking for quick results, look no further than i-Lipo. Many patients report significant changes within one month. One of the benefits of i-Lipo is the fact that it can be used on multiple body parts.
i-Lipo was awarded the highly regarded and respected Victoire de la Beaute Award, Slimming Treatment of the Year in Paris. Now that it’s available here in the United States, clients have been raving about the results they’re seeing after only a few treatments.
Treatment with i-Lipo
Patients who seek out the best body sculpting in Las Vegas turn to i-Lipo for their body contouring needs. It has a safe and effective track record and involves no downtime. In fact, many of our patients LOVE that they can come in on their lunch hour, get a treatment and head right back to work! i-Lipo does not damage surrounding skin or create any unnatural physical events within the body.
Working with a low level of laser energy, i-Lipo essentially works by breaking down the fats that are stored within the cell walls. The released fat is metabolized naturally by the body and comes with no negative side effects.
Treatment with i-Lipo takes as little as 20 minutes, can be used on all skin types, year-round, and has no down time. Two treatments per week for four weeks is recommended. Any area that has stored fat can be treated including the waistline, thighs, arms, legs and even under the chin.
Patients who have received a full treatment regimen typically report a 10% inch loss. A recent study from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which included 34 volunteers, found that more than 70% of participants experienced significant inch loss. i-Lipo is the first direct skin contact laser device designed for fat reduction and body contouring to receive FDA approval for circumferential reduction.
There are times that physical training and exercise simply cannot rid the body of unwanted fat. i-Lipo is the answer for safe, painless fat removal.
Exercise with oxygen training (EWOT) is breathing higher levels of oxygen that is purer during exercise whether it be on an exercise bike, treadmill, elliptical or any other piece of equipment used for aerobic exercise – exercise that uses oxygen.
In order to better understand how it works, here's Dr. Ian Yamane to explain.
The Benefits of Breathing More Oxygen
When you breathe more oxygen during exercise, your strength, endurance and stamina increase. The higher concentration of oxygen in our blood, the better your body operates and the more calories you burn during exercise. When you burn more calories, you lose more weight. EWOT can increase weight loss by an additional 20% and has also been successfully used for heart failure, high blood pressure, emphysema, stress, anti-aging and wellness. EWOT is effectively used as an acute therapy and to treat more chronic illnesses.
How You Get More Oxygen
During EWOT, you will be provided an oxygen concentrator that is used to provide concentrated oxygen therapy to you during exercise. The normal air we breathe contains about 21% oxygen. The oxygen concentrator passes room air through the machine and purifies it giving you a constant supply of 90-95% oxygen.
Who Can Use Exercise with Oxygen Training?
EWOT can be used by anyone able to exercise. As with any exercise, the more often you do it, the better the results. EWOT is especially good for athletes as they often rely on strength, endurance and stamina. In fact, many athletes such as Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps and several NFL and NBA players use EWOT to gain an athletic advantage.
What to Expect After Using Exercise with Oxygen Therapy
Once you have used EWOT, the purity and amount of oxygen will have an immediate effect on the brain, the most oxygen dependent tissue. You’ll leave feeling renewed, invigorated and clear-minded and wishing you had done it sooner!
The 10 Minute Treatment with Big Results
At Valhalla Wellness and Medical Centers, we are happy to provide our patients with a variety of treatments to improve health and wellness in Las Vegas and the surrounding areas. Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is a quick treatment that has many benefits, including accelerated weight loss and cellulite reduction.
What is Whole Body Vibration?
WBV is a method of vibrating the entire body to stimulate involuntary muscle reactions. Muscles contract and relax automatically at the same rate that the body is vibrating, which stimulates the cardiovascular, lymphatic, and nervous systems simultaneously.
The vibrations increase the forces on your body, so your body has to work a little harder just to stand; this improves muscle tone all over the body and can even help to improve balance.
WBV is a low-impact treatment that can be used by people of all fitness and skill levels across a wide age range. This method has seen positive results in studies done to determine its effects on weight loss. Recent research has been promising.
Who Developed Whole Body Vibration?
The Russian space program began putting WBV into practice in the 1960s. Bone and muscle loss accelerates in space due to the lack of gravity. Astronauts used WBV before, during, and after their trips to simulate gravity and keep their bones and muscles strong.
WBV was then integrated into athletic training, specifically the Russian Olympic teams. It is often considered part of the reason Russian athletes dominated the 1980 Olympic medal count.
What Are the Benefits of Whole Body Vibration?
To learn more about the specific benefits of WBV, please watch the video below featuring our own Dr. Ian Yamane.
Some of the benefits include:
Who Benefits from Whole Body Vibration?
Anyone who is looking to achieve any of the benefits of WBV is an excellent candidate for the treatment. There is evidence that WBV can be particularly beneficial to certain groups.
Obese people who are unable to perform more intense exercises can benefit from WBV, both for its benefits and as a way to transition to another kind of exercise.
Older adults who have physical limitations and are struggling to find a way to stay active can get many benefits from WBV. It gives them a way to stay active and can help them get strong enough to add other exercises to their routine. Because WBV can improve balance, it can reduce the risk of falls in the elderly as well.
Vibration exercise is also used by athletes and those who already have an established exercise routine to isolate muscles groups and enhance an already effective workout.
Because of the potential for increased bone density, older women at risk for osteoporosis can also see a lot of benefits.
WBV is not recommended for women who are pregnant, people who have implanted devices like a pacemaker or nerve stimulator, or anyone with a history of seizures, blood clots, or tumors.
