Treatment takes several forms:
  1. If your taste and smell dysfunction is a symptom of an underlying disease process, after this process is diagnosed, treatment of the process will usually correct your symptoms. For example, patients with hypothyroidism may have taste and smell dysfunction as the major symptoms of this process; through use of diagnostic tests this process can be determined, hormone treatment instituted and the taste and smell dysfunction corrected.

  2. If your taste and smell dysfunction is related to some other disease process the diagnostic procedures employed at The Clinic will determine which of several biochemical, metabolic or other pathologies initiated your symptoms. Following discovery of this pathology a specific treatment protocol will be made for you to correct your symptoms. Treatment includes usually requires oral drug therapy to correct the pathology. These drugs are safe and effective for treatment of these conditions and include various growth factors, drugs to enhance growth factor function, drugs to increase gene function, and drugs to enhance CNS function. Electrophysiological techniques are also used to correct your symptoms. Each treatment modality is effective only after obtaining a specific diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms.
