Get Leaner In Those Stubborn Spots Where Fat Finds a Home

So many of us who exercise modestly or more to keep our weight down still can’t successfully tackle the common trouble spots where fat collects. LipoLean can.

We can be in pretty good shape, but still have unwanted bulges around our waist and abdomen, our hips and thighs, even under our arms and under our chins. It can be more than frustrating.


LipoLean can reduce the frustration…and the fat. It’s a non-surgical, safe alternative to liposuction, and it serves to boost the exercise and diet modifications you are already making.

And we know you’ll like the way you look!

A series of LipoLean injections containing a carefully calibrated mix of nutrients can target excess fatty cells, dissolve them so they flow freely and help you burn energy, detoxify and cleanse your liver, and increase metabolism.

At The Guyer Institute of Molecular Medicine, it’s a recipe for faster fat-burning. On average, two to four pounds a week of weight loss can be achieved over the course of your treatment.

Laurie Wakerley is our receptionist. She says she lost nearly seven pounds her first week after beginning the LipoLean micro-injection regimen.

“I was so happy to see those results so quickly, “Laurie said. “It’s not magic; it’s science. Better metabolism and breakdown of fat cells gave me fewer inches and more energy!”


Laurie stresses that you can’t just stop healthy eating and end your exercising, yet still expect to see changes. LipoLean keeps your healthier lifestyle on track by motivating you. When your appearance thins in those hard-to-reach spots, the drive to keep it off is great.

At Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, Trish Wozniak, PA-C, does our LipoLean consultations, recommends the nutrients, minerals and amino acids that will work most effectively, and then shows you how to do the injections.

They are not painful, nor is there any downtime associated with LipoLean.

“Women and men both can benefit from this exciting way to metabolize more efficiently in the areas where fat gets stored,” Wozniak said. “I explain how the nutrients will work, handle their questions and concerns as they move through the series of injections, and, of course, monitor patients’ adherence and progress closely.”

You’re not out there “on your own” with LipoLean. Usually, we hear from Synergy Spa patients who can’t believe how much better they look and feel!

Three of the nutrients commonly utilized in the LipoLean program are leusine, methionine, and inositol. Together, they maximize fat-burning effects and help ensure that the liver is operating at peak efficiency.


There are other potential benefits to a diversified LipoLean injection plan. “Research indicates that cardiovascular health can sometimes be improved,” Wozniak said. “As well, the injections can help stabilize moods and keep hormones better balanced.”

At Synergy Spa of The Guyer Institute, this holistic approach to your health is why patients keep coming to see us for treatments and products year after year.

Your hips, rear, stomach, thighs, and other areas where the flesh is just too darn fleshy…can look better with LipoLean. That’s our mission: safe self-improvement for the women and men who walk in our door desiring change.

Food Allergy And Sensitivity Testing Tied To Better Health

Food allergies and sensitivities can frequently aggravate health problems and often those affected may not realize their health may improve substantially with some relatively simple dietary modifications. Some estimates suggest that these reactions may affect up to 20% of the population.

At The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa we have come to appreciate the importance of food allergy testing, evaluation and treatment.


We go beyond straightforward skin prick blood testing for reactions to foods such as peanuts or dairy. These classic IgE immune tests are valuable for immediate or acute allergic reactions, but may not provide a complete diagnostic for delayed type hypersensitivity that may be mediated by the IgG immune system subclass.

Many experts believe that close to 80% of people with marked food sensitivity problems deal with delayed symptoms that stem from a subset of the immune system called IgG.

These food sensitivities can take 72 hours to develop and have been associated with ongoing fatigue, mental focusing difficulties, attention deficit disorder, chronic irritable bowel syndrome, chronic infections and inflammation, joint pain, and even hormone imbalances.

At The Guyer Institute, we frequently work with Alletess Labs and their state-of-the-art regimens to get patients tested for reactions to as many as 96 different common foods. It is critical to know the full range of possibilities in order to rule out those not involved in negative health consequences.

guyer-pics-food-allergies-5“It is amazing just how prevalent significant food sensitivity is in the general population,” said Dale Guyer, MD, founder of The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa. “There is no one size fits all allergy problem or test – we see remarkable differences among people based on  body chemistry, stress levels, and organic responses that you can’t identify until you remove that food from the diet.”

Guyer says that variations of foods within dairy, eggs, glutens, cheeses, soy and some fruits can cause a sharp sensitivities that contribute to serious conditions.


Testing we call for can lead our experts to recommend changes in diet – some subtle, some significant – that may cause a decrease in headaches and migraines, weight loss, enhanced metabolism, enhanced functioning of the immune system, less GI disturbance, diminished irritable bowel syndrome, a decrease in pain, and improved neuro-cognitive function.


“Knowledge is power, “ Guyer says. “The studies we generate for patients give us ammunition to stimulate better health and quality of life.”

The Guyer Institute is also on the forefront of using herbal or natural antihistamine remedies for immediate allergic responses.

We utilize treatments that our expertise and experience tell us are most likely to work. Food allergies and sensitivities can inflict a damaging toll, and we’re here to help tackle these health effects with you.

Take Control of Chronic Pain With Targeted IV Vitamin Therapy

Can tens of thousands of people be wrong about what works for their health?

Not in our experience. And experience helping people feel stronger and healthier, with less pain and discomfort, is what we have at The Guyer Institute (TGI).

One of TGI’s most popular and powerful treatments is called IV Vitamin Therapy.

It’s a long-established, proven way to enhance energy, reduce inflammation, and increase metabolic efficiency by infusing a solution of key vitamins through a vein in the arm.


IV Vitamin Therapy has worked wonders for a wide cross-section of patients at Guyer who suffer from persistent pain caused by migraines, tension headaches, and fibromyalgia.

The treatment has been endorsed by many prominent people and well-known celebrities who want others to know it’s far from a fad – it’s a fact. The method bypasses barriers to absorption in the digestive tract, and helps elevate levels in the blood.

Other conditions we know to benefit from the concentrated vitamin and nutrient treatment are: depression; seasonal allergies, muscle spasms, and respiratory problems.

A mineral infusion can be done in less than an hour, and several visits over a few weeks often significantly improve symptoms that have taken years to see acceptable results.

Ongoing and debilitating fatigue, for example, is far more common than we want to admit. And at TGI, we use the IV therapy to tackle this problem that can take such a toll on your quality of life. The treatment has helped so many with chronic fatigue syndrome, where other efforts have fallen short.

Our clinic has even seen the therapy help markedly reduce the side effect of extraordinary fatigue and other discomforts that often come with chemotherapy or radiation for cancer patients.


The sessions are accessible and affordable, and our staff does a standout job of helping people be comfortable and relaxed with the infusions. We know what to expect and frequently tailor the vitamin treatments to your specific issues.

Chronic pain and other conditions are complex, but this time-tested treatment at TGI has legions of believers. The boost in their well-being is proof enough.

Your Own Body Can Help Heal Your Injuries

TGI’s plasma therapy shows stellar results

Summer compels most of us to get outside: to exercise hard, play to win, or work for hours on our gardens and lawns.

Sometimes, it’s just trying to keep up with the kids (and we never can).

Injuries happen. Elbows, knees, wrists, shoulders, joints and more get twisted, sprained, or worse.

Pain, slowdown, staying in. Summer can change as fast as the weather.


Frequently the fix is pain medications or procedures to fix what went wrong with your tendons, tissue, muscles, and ligaments.

There can be another way to heal which elicits the body’s own healing peptides and cells.

It’s called Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, or PRP. At The Guyer Institute, we offer this pain-free, regenerative treatment with the experience gained from seeing patient after patient achieve enduring recoveries.

“It’s so gratifying,” says Dale Guyer, founder and medical director, “to know and observe the body using its own building blocks in the blood and target the weakened and damaged areas. Time and again, I’ve seen PRP heal and help people get back out living again.”

Here’s how PRP works. Centrifuge machines and techniques approved by the FDA spin a small amount of a patient’s blood until the growth factors contained in platelets are purified by separation.

TGI - %22lab%22 : PTP

The resulting plasma extract is then injected into the site of the body’s injury. The whole process is done in The Guyer Institute offices in about an hour. Depending on the severity, two or three injections may be needed.

A Smooth Recovery

Many orthopedic physicians now recognize PRP can be extremely effective in situations where surgery is not the only or the obvious solution. It has also been shown to significantly aid healing after a surgery. It doesn’t have to be either-or.

Professional and college athletes are doing it and getting back on the field or court faster. They don’t want to damage the physiology and physicality that make them great. PRP makes sense for them, and delivers improvement without downsides.

Dr. Allan Mishra, a professor of orthopedics at Stanford, told the New York Times, “It’s not just the professional athlete who needs to get back to their game. Everyone wants to get back to what they do for play or for work.”

Danielle, a former Purdue cheerleader, had surgery for a major knee injury suffered while playing the sport she loved. She came to The Guyer Institute for PRP therapy, and recovered far beyond what some doctors had predicted.

“I encourage any athlete who is struggling with an injury to think outside the box and consider non-invasive options,” Danielle said. “It changed my life.”

It can change yours, too.






Hormone Balance with Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

You’ve probably heard the expression “Their hormones are just out of wack!”

hormones are out of wack!

The truth is, hormones play an important role in how we feel. And, as we age, hormonal imbalance can become a real issue, affecting not only our mood but also our overall health.

Dr. Dale Guyer of the Guyer Institute likes to describe our hormone system (endocrine system) as “a symphony of sorts wherein each instrument needs to be played in conjunction with the others in total balance.’  

Guyer Institute’s Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is an ideal way to preserve the ageing experience.You don’t have to gain weight or have hot flashes, and you can preserve your immune health”, said Dr. Guyer.   It involves the synergy of putting all the hormones together through a treatment known as bio identical hormone replacement. The same hormones that your body makes can be made from yams (yes, yams!) and work very well in restoring life quality.

 When hormones are out of balance, our bodies have a way of telling us. For women, this problem could show up as hot flashes, sleep disturbance, mood swings, and symptoms of skin or vaginal dryness.

For men, the onset of symptoms can often be very gradual over a span of five to 10 years as testosterone and other essential hormone levels gradually decline at a rate of about 10 percent per year. And, often they are not even aware of a problem. Their spouse may be the first to notice the change. Possibly he has become more lethargic and much less motivated. Perhaps he has gained weight, experienced a decrease in libido, has poor exercise tolerance, and a general overall diminishment in life enjoyment.

Fortunately, conditions of hormonal imbalance can be corrected in both men and women. For women, these symptoms can be resolved in a fairly quick time frame when hormone levels are restored. For men, restoration of testosterone and other hormone levels to a more optimal and younger age will tend to diminish and mitigate those overall concerning symptoms while substantially improving overall long-term health.

We start losing hormones in our late 20’s, and Dr. Guyer states that it happens to both women AND men, although symptoms usually affect women first. Everyone is unique and the time-frame when symptoms start to show up varies in the individual.

Denise Kaler, CEO of Synergy Spa

Denise Kaler, CEO of Synergy Spa, described how Dr. Guyer was able to help alleviate her “hot flashes” – “Dr. Guyer did some labs, then was able to formulate a cream for me to use along with a pill I take at night. At 61, I never thought I would feel so vibrant! You CAN feel like a million bucks!

If you feel your “hormones are out of wack”, consider Bio Identical Hormone replacement therapy to substantially improve your overall long-term health.

IV Therapy- a solution for a most common complaint?

“To hear complaints is wearisome alike to the wretched and the happy.”- Samuel Johnson

I’m tired all the time.”

It’s a common complaint.

And, it’s one uttered more by women than men. It has to do with our energy level. There are lots of us, it seems, that suffer from chronic tiredness. I’m not talking about the occasional problem staying awake during prime time sitcoms. I’m talking about fatigue that is persistent and limiting. You may even wake in the morning feeling as though you never slept.

How common is fatigue”, you ask?

Very common, indeed!

Experts say that 10% of people globally at any one time are suffering from persistent tiredness. And, it’s one of the most common complaints of patients visiting doctors. The National Institutes of Health informs that approximately one in every five Americans claims to have fatigue that is severe enough to interfere with daily normal life.

Of course, there are many causes of chronic tiredness. Some of the most common are stress, allergic rhinitis, anemia, depression, and fibromyalgia. Regardless, more and more people are researching the Internet, looking to natural remedies for tiredness. And, their research may lead them to visit to their local Whole Foods or Earth Fare store, where they buy vitamins or supplements they HOPE can boost their energy-deprived bodies.

So, are oral vitamins and supplements the answer?

There’s certainly nothing wrong with treating a tired body with vitamins and minerals. A deficiency in this area could, indeed, be contributing to the fatigue. However, treating this condition orally has limitations. Any physician will tell you that the human digestive tract has limited ability to absorb vitamins or supplements directly into the blood stream where the nutrients are really needed in order to benefit.

IV Vitamin/Mineral Therapy is the perfect solution.

IV therapy is a method of infusing vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into the bloodstream. Injecting these life-enhancing agents this way is beneficial in two ways.

  • First, we are bypassing the limitations of the digestive system completely.
  • Secondly, administering nutrients directly into the blood stream allows for higher than normal blood levels.

These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state.

IV therapy allows for 100% absorption of these vital nutrients and minerals by the body. Guyer Institute has performed over 100,000 IV therapies, and for many patients, they provide a core essential contribution to enhancing their overall well-being.

IV Vitamin/Mineral Therapy can help in many health-related issues!

IV therapy is not just for chronic fatigue. It’s also useful for treating many different conditions, including:

  • Chronic depression
  • Acute or chronic muscle spasm
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine headaches
  • Tension headaches
  • Seasonal allergic rhinitis
  • Respiratory problems

Deficiencies, once diagnosed, can be corrected with a few IV vitamin infusions administered over one to three weeks in what might otherwise have taken two to three ears of oral supplementation to restore normal levels.



Hyperbaric oxygen therapy Indianapolis

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy- putting the amazing healing power of oxygen to work for YOU.

There is no more precious and life-essential element on the face of the earth than oxygen.

Oxygen, the most abundant chemical element in the Earth’s biosphere, is essential to most terrestrial life. We know that if we fast, we can live a few days without water and a few weeks without food, but we can survive only a few minutes without oxygen. To put it another way, without oxygen there would be no life.

While we can all understand the importance of oxygen to life, few of us realize or appreciate its therapeutic and healing power for the human body.

At Guyer Institute, we put these amazing properties to use in our Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Using a high-pressure chamber located in a private area of our Synergy Spa, HBOT is effective in treating a wide range of disorders. Everything from wounds, burns, infections, illnesses, to sports-related injuries and inflammatory conditions are helped by Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

For example, concussions in sports are presenting an increasingly prevalent issue. Guyer Institute has treated patients with this condition using HBOT. We posted a story on our Facebook page on Jan 4, 2016 entitled “3 Cheers for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy” about Jacqueline, a Purdue cheerleader, who suffered a concussion. HBOT reduced her symptoms in just three treatments. She ultimately was able to resume her passion of cheerleading at the university.

The location of our Hyperbaric Chamber in our Synergy Spa makes it convenient for another use…to rejuvenate skin.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy dramatically diminishes the appearance of wrinkles in the skin and directly encourages overall skin health.

Have you ever peeked in the mirror after exercising? You may notice that your skin glows. Your entire face is flushed pink. This is a good sign, evidence that the outermost reaches of your cells have been bathed in oxygen-rich blood.

HBOT can renew damaged skin because it bathes the cells in your body with oxygen. And, because the chamber is pressurized, oxygen easily enters into every tissue of the body.

In a pressurized, 100% oxygen environment, HBOT improves circulation to your skin by supplying your cells with much-needed oxygen to improve sagging, wrinkles, and even age spots.

Not only can HBOT be used to treat a wide array of serious health conditions, it just makes you feel good, while serving as a popular alternative to abrasive creams, ointments, or harsh procedures for renewing aging skin.

More oxygen, anyone?

Is a THIEF robbing you of GOOD HEALTH?

We don’t have to tell you about the importance a good diet plays in overall health. More and more of us have jumped onboard the “healthy bandwagon”, paying closer attention to what we put into our bodies. We’re spending more time reading ingredient labels on food products and we’re buying more and more organic produce.

We have been educated that a diet high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, fiber and amino acids – along with proper sleep, exercise and stress management techniques, are all necessary for retaining good health.

But, you may be saying to yourself…

“I follow this lifestyle, but I still feel unhealthy. Why?”

Perhaps you are frustrated by persistent tiredness that borders on chronic fatigue. You could be experiencing migraines or tension headaches. Or, you suffer from frequent bouts of allergic rhinitis or colds.

In reality, your lifestyle may not be at fault. The culprit could be a vitamin deficiency.

Like a “thief in the night”, deficiencies in specific vitamins and minerals could be robbing you of good health.

It’s a medical fact that proper levels of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are needed to maintain our immune function, energy levels, and normal body metabolism.

IV Therapy can help correct nutritional deficiencies that are the root cause of several health-related conditions.

At Guyer Institute, our IV Therapy procedure is used by many patients to eliminate a variety of symptoms related to nutrient deficiencies.

These could include:

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with or without Epstein-Barr virus
  • Chronic depression
  • Acute or chronic muscle spasm
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine headaches
  • Tension headaches
  • Seasonal allergic rhinitis
  • Respiratory problems

The history of IV Therapy

Dr. John Myers of Baltimore, Maryland first developed the IV vitamin/mineral infusion therapy (aka the Myer’s cocktail) several decades ago to help his patients suffering from chronic inflammation, slow cellular or connective tissue healing, or body healing in general. Dr. Guyer learned of the therapy during his residency from another doctor who was a protégé of Dr. Myers.

Since it’s inception in the 1980’s, subsequent physicians expanded and further refined the use of IV Therapy. Today, Guyer Institute has performed well over 100,000 IV Therapies. Many of our patients notice immediate improvement. This is because infusing vitamins and minerals directly into the blood stream bypasses the limitation of the digestive tract and its own mitigated ability to absorb them.

Please note: A few infusions can correct a deficiency that would have required two to three years worth of oral supplements.

If you suspect a THIEF is robbing YOU of good health, get read of him! Our IV Therapy will banish the thief once and for all, while quickly restoring you to good health!

IV Therapy- A way to refill your body’s empty gas tank!

One of the first things we learn when we start driving is to WATCH-THAT-GAS-GAUGE!

Running out of gas on the open road is NOT a pleasant experience. The engine sputters, jerks a few times, and then dies. All power to the car is instantly lost.

The same analogy can be applied to the human body as it relates to fatigue. Persistent tiredness can take a real toll on our physical and emotional well-being as well as affect relationships with our families. Like a car running out of gas, exhaustion makes the body weaken and “sputter”. In extreme conditions, the body may even shut down. At the very least, it makes it more prone to illness.

How Big a Problem is Fatigue?

According to a Department of Health and Human Services report entitled Reasons for Visiting Physicians, a staggering 14 million Americans go to the doctor each year complaining of exhaustion. Add to that uncounted millions who seek medical advice for other reasons but also mention significant exhaustion. Then, there millions more who never seek help but are nonetheless tired all the time. It is clear that fatigue is a major health problem in America!

IV Therapy can help several conditions, including fatigue

At Guyer Institute, an increasingly popular procedure involves using IV Vitamin/Mineral Therapy to treat various health conditions, including fatigue. These therapies are individualized depending on the clinical laboratory chemistries of each patient.

Dr. John Myers of Baltimore, Maryland first developed the IV vitamin/mineral infusion therapy (aka the Myer’s cocktail) several decades ago to help his patients suffering from chronic inflammation, slow cellular or connective tissue healing, or body healing in general. Dr. Guyer learned of the therapy during his residency from another doctor who was a protégé of Dr. Myers.

Since it’s inception in the 1980’s, subsequent physicians expanded and further refined the use of IV Therapy. Today, Guyer Institute has performed well over 100,000 IV Therapies. Many of our patients notice immediate improvement.

Why does IV Therapy work so rapidly,” you ask?

By feeding these therapeutic vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into the bloodstream, the GI tract can be bypassed completely. And, that is a good thing. Many times, it’s the stomach and intestines that prevent absorption due to poor intestinal function.

What conditions can IV Therapy can help?

In addition to general exhaustion, several other conditions can benefit from this therapy. These include:

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with or without Epstein-Barr virus
  • Chronic depression
  • Acute or chronic muscle spasm
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine headaches
  • Tension headaches
  • Seasonal allergic rhinitis
  • Respiratory problems

If you feel your body’s “gas tank” is running low, give us a call. A simple consultation could result in a new reinvigorated YOU through IV Therapy.

Cocoon versus the attraction of IV Therapy

Do you remember the movie Cocoon?

It was a popular film released in 1985.

Directed by Ron Howard, it tells the story of a group of elderly folks who have a close-encounter with aliens when they find a swimming pool filled with strange pods that possess magical powers. By jumping into the pool and swimming, these octogenarians’ tired, worn out bodies are invigorated with youthful vitality.

Hollywood aside…

Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way we could quickly “recharge” our own body from time to time?

Introducing Intravenous Vitamin/Mineral Therapy from Guyer Institute.

What is IV Therapy,” you ask?

IV Therapy is a way to introduce high doses of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. John Myers, MD, a physician from Baltimore, Maryland, pioneered the use of intravenous (IV) vitamins and minerals (aka the Myer’s cocktail) as part of the overall treatment of various medical problems.

“What are the advantages of IV Therapy over oral supplements?”

The advantages are many:

  • We are able to bypass the GI system by placing the nutrients directly in you bloodstream. This helps avoid the normal digestive process of the stomach and intestines, which can render these nutrients inactive due to poor intestinal function.
  • Many people plagued with digestive problems find they can tolerate IV supplementation much better than oral supplementation.
  • Higher blood levels of the nutrients can be obtained. These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response as deficiencies arising from a diseased state are corrected.

IV Therapy is useful in treating many different conditions

At Guyer Institute, we have performed well over 100,000 IV therapies. The following list represents some, though not all, of the conditions that have benefitted from IV therapy:

  • Asthma
  • Acute or Chronic muscle spasm
  • Migraine
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Depression
  • Upper Respiratory Tract Infections
  • Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis

If you think IV therapy might help you, give us a call. A consultation will determine whether or not such therapy is recommended.

And if it is, we guarantee you won’t have to jump into a swimming pool filled with strange pods to regain a more vigorous, healthy body.
