Breast Cancer Care And Awareness Can Never Waver

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and it is as important as ever.

The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa wants to be sure you know about some of of the ways we help women who’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer and may be undergoing treatment.

“Breast cancer is far too common,” says Dale Guyer, founder and medical director of the institute. “And it needs to receive intense focus and ongoing, well-funded research. 

For those already dealing with the illness, we have some treatments that can make a difference.”

Pulsating Electromagnetic Therapy (PEMF)

Our pioneering MG Pro treatment at The Guyer Institute 

helps to achieve electrical balance within cells and restore cellular energy. This is important for all cells, and particularly diseased ones.

Utilizing MG-Pro can also improve oxygenation and circulation.

A 2013 research report on the National Institute of Health website indicates that PEMF shows some positive effects on inhibiting the growth rates or even breaking down breast cancer cells.

The reports stated that after several days of higher-intensity PEMF frequencies, “it appears that PEMF-based anti-cancer strategies may represent a new therapeutic approach to treat breast cancer without affecting normal tissues.”

A 2016 report in the journal, Cancer Medicine, said a review of studies show “PEMF therapy is safe and promising compared to other available cancer therapies.”

MG Pro at The Guyer Institute operates at lower frequencies, but it utilizes the same electromagnetic pulsing and may have an impact on breast cancer cells.

MG Pro has also demonstrated promise in relieving stress, which can be heightened by chemo for breast cancer.

“We have our sessions set up in a low light, comfortable private room,” says our naturopath Lori Rivera, “complete with a view of Dr. Guyer’s beautiful botanical gardens, plenty of comfy blankets, and a flat screen TV.” 

Reducing Effects of Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy for breast cancer or other cancers can put the immune system out of balance.

At The Supplement Store of The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we carry a proprietary immune system anti-oxidant supplement called Immune Ox.

Breast cancer demands all the best tools available to fight it. We’ll keep doing our part.

Theradome – A Great Treatment to Thicken Thinning Hair

It’s the perfect time to build on the Vampire® Hair Re-Growth Treatment with the popular Theradome treatment to help thicken thinning hair.

At the Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, you’ll receive a complimentary Theradome treatment with every Platelet Rich Therapy (PRP) Vampire® treatment for your scalp.

It’s a way to see if you want to buy a Theradome helmet and bring it home with you.

“The Vampire procedure begins the re-growth of weaker follicles…sort of like planting the seeds,” says Denise Kaler, CEO of Synergy Spa. “Theradome then reduces shedding dramatically. That helps maintain the strength and improves the diameter of the rejuvenated hair.”

The Theradome LH80 PRO laser treatment is usually administered twice a week for twenty minutes to thicken thinning hair. You can set the timer and get on your laptop or watch TV while the Theradome goes to work for you.

Theradome has markedly cut the costs of clinical strength laser phototherapy while maximizing its benefits. Synergy Spa at the Guyer Institute brings the advance to you.

The treatment is FDA-cleared and affordable laser hair restoration that will improve your appearance and self-esteem.

“It really is wonderful to see the change for the better,” Denise says, “after a month or two of treatments. Overall, it takes six months or more to truly thicken thinning hair, and slow the shedding so many suffer from. But when improvements come, you’ll see and love the difference!”

With Theradome, many patients experience a 50 percent decrease in hair shedding, and an increase of hair growth. There is often a doubling of hair diameter, revealing thicker hair.

Theradome, often in concert with the Vampire® Hair Re-Growth treatment, utilizes a series of proprietary lasers that are optimized for the purpose and can reach all problem areas.

In a testimonial, one patient wrote, “Within the first two months of using …Theradome, I started questioning myself: Is it my imagination because I want it to work so bad?

I first noticed the texture of my hair change and feel slightly thicker, and now when I put my hair up, it seems to have much more volume.”

First, the advanced Vampire® Hair Re-Growth treatment at Synergy Spa – the best MedSpa in metro Indianapolis – combines micro-needling technology with PRP created from the patient’s blood and non-surgically treat the scalp.

Male and female patients who have suffered hair loss have reported great results from this innovative therapeutic treatment option.

Then, in conjunction,Theradome does its wonders to stimulate, stabilize, and thicken thinning hair. It is easy, comfortable, and convenient.

It’s taken a years and years for your hair to thin. So, it’s worth the investment to propel re-growth, reduce shedding, and strengthen follicles.

Supplements Can Help You Achieve Better Health

Body chemistry is delicate – and essential to your well-being – and nutrient-filled, health-boosting supplements can help it work like a fine-tuned piano. 

At The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we have the supplements to bolster diet deficiencies and promote better health and a stronger immune system.

“As popular as they are, the right supplements are still underutilized,” says Dale Guyer, MD, founder of the institute. “There are so many to choose from, but consumers are often in the dark about what works best.”

That’s why our supplement store ( should be your first choice for health-boosting supplements. We’ve spent years using our experience with patients developing or choosing the ideal supplements for a wide range of your needs.

“If we recommend a product that can improve your nutrient balance, you can be assured there are great reasons for doing so,” Dr. Guyer said. “We know what works.”

One key health-boosting supplement The Guyer Institute carries can do wonders for body chemistry: it’s called Syner-G, a multivitamin stocked with antioxidants.

Antioxidants can make a significant difference in heart health and brain health. They counteract the negative effects of free radicals in the blood – and minimize the potential for serious consequences.

Syner-G is highly regarded for its enhancing biologic activity.  It’s a complete multi-vitamin that provides full support for the immune system, which is especially helpful as we get older.

And aging is one of the reasons health-boosting supplements are so important. The body may add years and stay strong if you let us at The Guyer Institute measure and test your blood chemistry – then advise you on the best supplement regimen.

If you’re still not convinced, here are other reasons health-boosting supplements are so valuable.

Losing nutrients when dieting

A paleo diet, for example, can lead to a shortage of calcium or Vitamin D. A diet low in red meat can lead to low levels of iron and B12.

Maximize the nutrient benefit of fruits and vegetables

Many of us don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables, and the nutrients in fruits and vegetables are vital to good health. Supplements can make up the difference.

Add energy

Your cells require vitamins and nutrients to power your busy lives. Health-boosting supplements can also help with sleep, which his a direct connection to your energy the day after.

Manage stress

Melatonin supplements | Seratonin | Chronic Fatigue Treatment Indianapolis

Micronutrients play a significant biochemical role in improving your brain’s cognitive functioning, and studies have shown that a daily multivitamin—particularly one with high doses of Vitamin B — can help to reduce stress and support a healthy mood.

The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa makes your well-being health our priority. Health-boosting supplements are an absolute advantage in keeping your body chemistry right where it needs to be, day and night.


Synergy Spa’s CoolSculpting® Event Is On 9/26

Get ready to see fat frozen away in live action CoolSculpting®!

It’s not IMAX, but you’ll be able to stand close and see fat reducing wonders from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the 26th at Synergy Spa of the Guyer Institute.

Coolsculpting machine | Cool Sculpting procedure | Fat removal Indianapolis

If you haven’t had CoolSculpting® yourself – but have heard about it – what’s on display? Answer: this amazing treatment to reduce unwanted fat in all the important places. Up to 25 percent gone for most patients.

“It will be an exciting get-together,” says Denise Kaler, CEO of Synergy Spa, the most advanced MedSpa in Central Indiana. “I know women and men who come will be surprised at how smooth the procedure is. They’re keenly interested in seeing just how it works during…and after.”

Denise adds: “Once the unwanted fat is gone, it’s gone for good.”


That evening, we’ll also be offering free consultations along with discounts for future CoolSculpting® treatments.

There’s money to be saved by putting this on your schedule.

Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute is a CoolSculpting® certified center. Patient after patient can’t believe how well it works on unwanted fat. They rave about the results.

Grace McDonald is one of our highly trained CoolSculpting® staff members. Grace has attended CoolSculpting University in Pleasanton, California. She’s learned the advanced training protocols to deliver the best possible results.

“The newer vacuum technology isolates the unwanted fat on the tummy, thighs, arms, neck, under the chin and more,” Grace says. “And then the system applies freezing effects that break up the molecules.”

There is virtually no downtime for the body contouring. Within one to three months, the fat molecules affected will disperse through the body’s normal metabolism.

And now, there’s a whole new angle to CoolSculpting® offered at Synergy Spa. It’s called CoolAdvantage™. It allows for better targeting of unwanted fat, with little to no discomfort and shorter treatment duration.

“CoolAdvantage™ is a major step forward on the already super-popular CoolSculpting® system,” Denise says. “Especially for those who want multiple unwanted fat treatments in the same day. These often just fit their schedule better, and certainly helps them fit in their clothes, too!”

On the 26th, our event will feature more than the live display. We’ll have a formal presentation by an expert representative from Allergan, along with wine and appetizers, too!

As well, staff will be on hand to discuss not only CoolSculpting® and CoolAdvantage™, but any of the wonderful, health-promoting treatments. They include our multiple, rejuvenating Vampire® treatments, ALMI, and our array of fantastic facials, just to name a few.

CoolSculpting® with CoolAdvantage™ is a way to experience unwanted fat dissolving away. No needles, no special diets needed.

The evening of the 26th at Synergy Spa – from 5:30 to 7:30 – will tell you what you need to know, and show you what you want to see. So, ladies and gentlemen both…we’ll see you soon!

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Can Help Boost Your Energy, Improve Recovery from Injuries

Oxygen is our lifeblood, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy may improve a number of serious health conditions. 

At The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we offer HBOT to patients seeking the latest treatments to improve your life. Lori Rivera, our doctor of naturopathy, is the primary practitioner for this treatment.

Patients use hyperbaric oxygen therapy for chronic fatigue, to boost healing from injuries, to improve normal brain functioning after a concussion, and accelerate healing from a surgery or procedure.

“Time and again, patients with chronic fatigue tell me me how much better they feel after hyperbaric oxygen therapy,” Lori says. “It is a safe, enriching, and effective treatment.”

Healing doesn’t happen properly without appropriate oxygen levels in our tissues and cells. In many cases, such as circulatory problems, non-healing wounds, and post-stroke recovery, hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides this extra oxygen and its healing effects naturally. 

Lori Rivera

It has minimal or no side effects.

At The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, HBOT allows patients to be in a 100% oxygenated environment. In the normal air, the oxygen level is 21%.

When you’re in the chamber, you feel and see it fill up with air. Patients feel a bit of pressure, similar to taking off or landing in an airplane. 

“Most patients actually enjoy relaxing during the hyperbaric oxygen therapy sessions,” Rivera says. “It eases the mind as the body is stimulated through the higher oxygen levels. 

Many people just lie quietly and meditate on the plush pad. Others read, fiddle with their cell phones, listen to music, or even sleep.”

HBOT can:

• Enhance cellular renewal

• Support growth of new blood vessels and tissue

• Decrease swelling and inflammation

• Fight infections and boost the immune system

• Help metabolize some toxins

Prospective patients should know that Lori or another staff member is always there during the treatments to monitor you. Patients can be in constant view and communication.

Before having hyperbaric oxygen therapy at The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we carefully go over your medical history and ask you to undergo a physical.

“I think a consultation is important before HBOT,” Rivera says. “We know there can be lots of questions, and luckily, we have the answers!”

The list of conditions for which hyperbaric oxygen therapy has shown positive results keeps expanding. We can tell you more about those in your consultation. 

It’s not surprising that boosting oxygen levels has these natural healing effects. At the Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we’re always moving forward to maximize our patients’ health and well-being. 

If you’d like to talk about HBOT, please get in touch with our team at 317.580.WELL.

Penis injection - Sexual Dysfunction - Pshot - priapus shot

Better Sex Comes With The Powerful P Shot®

The popular and highly effective platelet rich therapy (PRP) treatments can help your sex life, too! Success can come with the P Shot®.

Here’s how it makes a difference: the P Shot® helps your male partner, and let’s be blunt now: it improves the health and, “performance” and often the size of his penis.

When that happens, he and his sexual companion are in luck!

“So many clients, males who have the P Shot® – and the woman in each man’s life – don’t stop talking about the positive change,” says Denise Kaler, CEO of Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute.

“Nobody calls it a miracle, and neither do we. But pure and simple, the P shot® can help make sex much better.”

At Synergy Spa, the preparation starts with a nurse easily extracting a small amount of blood from the male patient.

The blood is then placed in a high speed, FDA-certified centrifuge system that isolates and then activates rich nutrients and natural growth factors for reinsertion into the patient’s body.

At Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, the plasma is injected back into parts of the penis.

“An anesthetic is used to keep any pain to a minimum,” says Dale Guyer, M.D, founder and medical director. “Few men ever say anything about pain from a P Shot®, and what’s more, there is virtually no downtime or discomfort after the procedure is complete.

It takes about 30 minutes or so and you can be back to work later that day if you’d like.”

Denise Kaler adds: “PRP and the P Shot® are truly amazing. It’s gratifying to know we can assist as many men as we have.”

The P Shot® has been shown to increase the strength, endurance, and sensitivity of the penis, and patient survey results point to increased size, as well – about a half to 3/4 an inch in length and a proportionate amount in girth.

It usually takes a few months to see that improvement, and a regimen using a penis pump for that period can help the size increase to take hold and last.

Men can receive a P Shot® about once a year to keep blood flow, tissue health, natural growth factors, and nutrient levels active and strong.

“It improves the orgasm, too,” Kaler says. “Men report this consistently. The whole sexual experience is more satisfying.”

The P Shot® procedure is especially helpful to men over 40 whose sexual health may suffer from the effects of aging, diseases like diabetes, prostate problems, and the side effects of certain medications.

The P Shot® is powering better sex lives for men and women who seek the help we can provide at Synergy Spa of the Guyer Institute.

There’s nothing to be shy about. Sex should be as enjoyable and meaningful as it can be.

Their own body is the best ally men have to regain some of their youth…in bed. More pleasure for them and their partners!

Indianapolis Lab testing | Holistic Medicine | Biochemical testing

We Can Be Your Easy Avenue For Lab Testing

We are all about well-being, true health, and health awareness. Awareness comes from information, and the patient has to be involved, of course.

The good news from The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa: we can help! We have arrangements with two lab testing companies to get your labs drawn with us and sent to them – so we can find out what you need to know about your health.

If you’ve come to see us before, you know we have phlebotomists on staff and. After a consultation, we can get a sample from you and order up a full range of testing.

Routine and periodic testing can include lipids (heart-related: fat, cholesterol, triglycerides, vitamins, etc.), liver and kidney function. It can include electrolytes, thyroid, and other blood proteins involved in metabolism.

Having labs done in our office is often more convenient and cost effective for patients. We have three phlebotomists on staff now, so appointment scheduling and potential wait time is very favorable compared to a crowded physician’s practice.

“So many of our patients are here regularly for a variety of treatments and products,” Dr. Guyer says, “so it just makes sense to get your labs drawn at intervals with us.”

Over his many years as a top health practitioner, Dr Guyer often recommends patients also get testing for some or most of the following: neurotransmitter balance; cellular energy production; a broader array of hormone balance and interaction; and gastrointestinal function.

And, if necessary, lab testing for toxin accumulation, including heavy metals.

“These tests and other avenues,” Dr, Guyer says, “can help better define overall physiologic efficiency.”

An imbalance in results can point to underlying issues that affect energy, mental agility, balance, sleep, and stress.

The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa has relationships with two lab testing companies to meet many of our patients’ testing needs.

The labs we draw for you, with orders for the types of testing, are sent to Mid America Clinical Labs. Its services can often be billed to your insurance provider. Please check with your insurance provider beforehand.

There’s more good news on the lab testing front: for underinsured or uninsured patients, we offer testing through Access Labs, where the patient pays a reduced cost for the labs. 

Savings vary, but patients can expect to pay about 20-25% of the cost, a considerable discount.

At The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we offer so much as part of our integrated approach to your physical and mental well-being – and your appearance. Convenient, reliable lab testing is just another way to strengthen our services.

Health information gives you power!

Hand wrinkle treatment | Stem Cell Facial | Almi Indianapolis

ALMI Helps Your Face And Hands Look Younger

Synergy Spa started doing ALMI in April, and the clients seeking a more youthful appearance just keep on coming.

ALMI is a remarkable skin rejuvenation procedure that can turn back the clock for a more youthful appearance. It can significantly improve skin tone and texture, especially on the face and hands.

Synergy Spa – the finest MedSpa in metro Indianapolis – is the first and only facility in Indiana to be selected, approved, and now offering the procedure.

When patients first started getting ALMI in spring, having the amazing treatment on the face was far and away the first choice.

But CEO Denise Kaler says these days, “Most clients request the hands be treated at the same time as the face.”

And it’s obvious that patients are telling their friends: word is spreading.

“We have had clients who have been flying to Indianapolis from other states to receive their ALMI treatment from Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute.”

When improving the vitality and youthful appearance of your face, it’s a great idea to do the same for your hands. Hands, too, get lined, wrinkled, and experience loss of tone and texture.

They can sometimes signal the opposite of radiant skin in your face. It just makes sense to receive ALMI treatment on both.

By age 40, most people have up to 20% collagen loss, and by age 50 there can be 30% collagen loss. Clearly, there is a need for ALMI to compensate for the volume loss and then rejuvenate.

“Rich, healthy skin and more contoured shape on the hands make a huge difference,” Denise says. “We get so focused on looking in the mirror – at our faces, necks, eyes – that we can forget our hands are also essential parts of our appearance.”

The regenerated, youthful appearance you can find with ALMI at Synergy Spa can last several years.

What is ALMI? In everyday talk, ALMI stands for “All Me,” and it is simple, painless, and effective. After the micro extractions and injections, the years seem to vanish in the glow of this all-natural approach.

The more technical name for ALMI is Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection, and uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) techniques.

With ALMI at Synergy Spa, this therapy combines with stem cells drawn from your own micronized fatty tissue.

ALMI can help treat:

  • Fine lines on the face and hands
  • Wrinkles
  • Dark circles and discoloring
  • Sagging

“This rejuvenation procedure is quite worthy of all the enthusiasm,” Denise says.

The procedure is offered in an outpatient visit that takes about an hour, with minimal to no downtime.

ALMI at Synergy Spa can be a work of art. Beyond the face and hands, patients can receive injections in the cheeks, around the mouth folds, and other more sensitive areas. Our experts will counsel you on the best course of treatment.

A more youthful appearance is at your doorstep. Give us a call at 317-580-1SPA (1772) to set up a consultation. Let’s get started!
