About Dr. Antone
Dr. Antone came to his interest and practice of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and other multiple powerful healing techniques the way many physicians have: Circuitously. “I originally followed my childhood passion for music, while setting aside my dream of being a doctor. After playing rock’n roll then studying music on my own while playing in jazz fusion and funk bands for many years, I finally pursued my goal of becoming a physician. My Doctoral Degree as a Chiropractic Physician was completed at the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic, Sunnyvale, California.
While an intern at the Palmer College Clinic, the clinical professors honored me by stating that they felt I had ‘considerable emerging talents’ and assigned me to work with the difficult cases – those that other interns had not been able to resolve. [My success in this endeavor ultimately led to my developing a referral-based practice where patients who cannot get better anywhere else come for consultation & treatment.] After internship at the Palmer College Clinic and residency at Homestead Chiropractic Group in Sunnyvale, I received a post-doctoral diploma from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego as a specialist in the treatment of Whiplash and related spinal injuries. Throughout this time I progressed as a student of the intricacies of human aging and why some people get well and others do not.
In January of 1996, I became aware of the amazing work being done by Dr. Siegfried Othmer at EEG Spectrum in Los Angeles, California, utilizing EEG Neurofeedback brain training. I immediately began their course of study to become a Certified Neurofeedback Therapist. Since that time, I have been blessed to work with and assist hundreds of children and adults to permanently remediate the syndromes known as ADD and ADHD as well as other issues such as Learning Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Post Concussion Syndrome.
In 2005, I completed rigorous studies at the Cenegenics Medical Institute, Las Vegas, Nevada, to become a certified Age Management Physician. This has allowed me to partner with many over-50 men and women to maximize their health and longevity goals. In association with a local medical doctor, we provide the necessary prescriptions to utilize safe and effective hormone enhancement programs guided by comprehensive blood-panel analysis and a thorough history and evaluation. Our motto: “Live Long – Live Strong” is being experienced to the fullest by these wonderful, visionary patients who embrace the dietary, nutrient and life-style changes that are the core of our “Executive Health Program”. A few years ago, I applauded as one my 68 year old male patients joined the merchant marines!
During many years of personal, then professional study, I also became thoroughly grounded in the knowledge and use of vitamins, herbs and nutriceuticals, as adjuncts to, or replacements for, conventional agents (drugs). And so it became natural for me to integrate these into my practice wherever prudent. In 2007 and 2008, I applied this knowledge, my existing degrees and life-work to-date to the study and acquisition of an Alternative Medical Degree. In January, 2008, I received my degree as an Alternative Medical Doctor (A.M.D.), specializing in the field of Alternative Medicine, from the Indian Board of Alternative Medicine, Calcutta, India.
In 2009, while on a flight to New Mexico, I experienced a revelation while reading a book about Dr. Eric Pearl and The Reconnection that changed his practice and his life. I immediately sensed a need to learn this work for my own patients. That August, I flew to Chicago to take part in the next available classes and became certified in Reconnective Healing. The outcome continues to amaze me. Patients are healed on many levels, often with unexpected timing and results. I feel honored to be able to interface with other Human Beings in this way and I continue to learn from each session about the power inherent in reconnecting with the grid systems that surround us here, on Earth and out into the universe.
In 2011, after doing research on the often amazing benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), I obtained a large chamber from OxyHealth. LLC of Los Angeles. It’s called the Vitearis. It operates at 4.5 psi and provides the pressure necessary to transform the 96% pure oxygen – fed to the patient via a small mask over the nose and mouth – into a solution to be picked up and carried by plasma to all organs and tissue in a way impossible to achieve via blood alone. The result has transformed my practice by providing my patients with a means of removing the inflammation that is the source of so many acute and chronic conditions. Everyone from stroke and multiple sclerosis patients to former 49er running back Kevan Barlow have experienced the healing benefits of HBOT at Long Life Sciences.
So, here we are in 2013 continuing to offer all of these profound avenues upon which my patients may travel toward a renewal of their health. As the journey continues, I offer my sincere gratitude for all those who come to me and pledge that, together, we will learn and grow toward a better understanding of the meaning of health and the opportunity it presents to us for knowing who we really are. Namaste.
