Dr. Yonat Har-Nov – Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture (YNSA) and Fibromyalgia

My wife has suffered from Fibromyalgia for more than 10 years. After the diagnosis our physicians in the US treated her with opiates using pain management as the primary means of ameliorating her painful condition. I discovered that a doctor in Israel running at program in Israel at Assaf Harofeh Hospital that used a combination of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (at 2 times atmospheric pressure) along with acupuncture and neuro-cognitive therapy had a 70% success rate in substantially reducing/curing the pain from Fibromyalgia. The center is called the Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research which, by the way is part of the Tel Aviv University Medical Center Hospital. IT IS THE LARGEST OF ITS KIND IN THE WORLD.

My wife spent 4 months in Israel and is NO LONGER TAKING ANY OPIATES for pain. One of the only post-treatment procedures she has found helpful is the acupuncture she was receiving while she was in Israel. From my experience NOT ALL ACUPUNCTURE is the same and NOT ALL ACUPUNCTURISTS ARE THE SAME. Prior to leaving the Sagol Center in Israel we researched where to go when we returned home to get the same type of acupuncture my wife received in Israel. The acupuncture therapy is called “Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture” (YNSA), a Japanese form of acupuncture developed in the 1970s. From my visual observation of my wife’s 10 year nightmare with opiates (oxycontin, oxycodone, ketamine, fentanyl, botox injections, dilaudid, ablasions and steroid injections to manage pain) YNSA really helped.

When we returned to Boca Raton we were referred by family friend to another acupuncturist who has more than 20 years’ experience and who advertised that she treated Fibromyalgia. We went to visit this acupuncturist and 1 1/2 after returning home from our first visit, my wife’s pain returned with a vengeance. She couldn’t get out of bed and was writhing in pain. We wouldn’t take opiates again so we started researching other acupuncturists who are qualified or trained in YNSA since that methodology worked so well when we were in Israel. What I learned from my attempts at research is that THERE IS NO REGISTRY OR TRADE ORGANZIATION in the US that has a listing for acupuncturists who specialize in YNSA so after doing research and speaking with the acupuncturists in Israel we found THE ONLY YNSA SPECIALIST IN OUR AREA IS DR. YONAT HAR-NOV.

My wife went to visit Dr. Har-Nov last week for the first time and the relief was immediate. Dr. Har-Nov is an excellent acupuncturist. She reached out to the acupuncturists treating my wife in Israel and my wife’s pain was almost immediately relieved (not eliminated) after leaving her office. While it may take a few weeks to get her condition back under control, my wife is only taking Advil and/or Tylenol for pain and the quality of daily life is back on the upswing. The bottom line is that Dr. Har-Nov is one of the few people in South Florida (the only one I found) who is qualified and experienced in YNSA which is the same type of acupuncture used by the Tel-Aviv University Hospital-affiliated Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research in supplementing its hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments for its Fibromyalgia patients. While YNSA may not work for everyone, from my personal experience and visual observation of my wife, it’s like watching a miracle occur right before your eyes.

“It’s a very busy office but they seem to have processes in place to make sure they are always running on time and everyone in the office seems to know what is going on with each patient and where they should be and who should be with them. Not sure how they do it but many businesses could learn from them!”

– Lisa H.


“It seems that everyone in the practice is so very caring. I’m very optimistic about my treatments. In addition it’s nice that you have so many other treatment options/additions.”

Kat Cowan“I have been a patient here at Parkside Health & Wellness Center for about 3 years now. I came here during my first pregnancy at 5 months pregnant with awful back pain and hip pain. Not only did Dr. Bogart relieve my back pain, my delivery took only 15 minutes!!!! I am a firm believer that by correcting any misalignments I had, made the delivery process much more comfortable for myself and my baby!! Honestly, the best experience of my life and I am very much looking forward to the birth of my second child. Thanks Dr. Bogart & Parkside Health & Wellness, you guys are the best!”

– Kat Cowan


Braden Chambers“Towards the end of a seemingly perfect pregnancy, I began having sharp pains in my hip and right side. I could barely walk without using support. My OB referred me to Parkside Health and Wellness Center and Dr. Bogart quickly eased my pain. His regular adjustments and therapy treatments ultimately allowed me to have an easier labor and delivery! When my newborn son began having bowel issues causing failure to thrive concerns, I immediately consulted Dr. Bogart. After several adjustments and other natural remedies which he suggested, our son started gaining weight and was much healthier than before. Whenever I have concerns with his health, I bring Braden in to Parkside Health and Wellness Center before I even call pediatrician. Dr. Bogart has assisted us with his constipation, chronic ear infections and even balance and coordination issues when he first started to walk. Dr. Bogart and Dr. Hersch have become more than just “the chiropractors and their staff” and more like family.”

Liam“I love coming to see Dr. Joe. I’ve been coming to Parkside Health & Wellness Center since I was 3 months old. Before that I was coming here in my mommy’s belly, and Dr. Joe helped her to get pregnant with me. Dr. Joe really makes me feel great for a little guy who is always falling, climbing, rolling and running. After he adjusts me, I’m a new boy. If I have trouble sleeping or pooping, or if I have a cold he makes it all better! Thanks Dr. Joe,”

– Love, Liam Caracofe (written by his mom Peggy)


Martinez Family“When Ariana was suffering with chronic ear infections, Dr. Bogart’s consistent care was able to prevent surgery that her pediatric specialists all agreed was the answer. It was a natural decision to get the whole family under chiropractic care. Dr. Bogart and staff are always welcoming and friendly.”

– Martinez family


Denise Hale“An adjustment at Parkside Health & wellness Center works, it’s the highlight of my day! We love Drs. Bogart & Hersch. They are completely competent & knowledgeable, as well as wonderful positive people. My kids love it here too!”

– Denise Hale (mom of Emily and Katie)


Barbara Gobbi“I started going to Dr. Bogart and Parkside Health and Wellness Center when I was pregnant with my 3rd child. I was suffering from past injuries from a car accident that were exaggerated due to my pregnancy. In addition, I could hardly walk because of sciatica and sacrum issues. By the end of the pregnancy, I was pain-free and my delivery was so easy! I delivered without anesthesia for the first time and only had to push once! Now that I am pregnant with my 4th child, there was no doubt in my mind that chiropractic care from Dr. Bogart would be a part of my pregnant care. I feel better than I ever have, even at 40 and chasing an 18 month old around. Thanks Dr. Bogart!”

– Barbara Gobbi


DeSouza“The three of us are being treated by Dr. Bogart. Our overall health has greatly improved since having adjustments made. The girls are getting started early, so their future well being will be a healthy one. Dr. Bogart and his staff are wonderful. They show concern for each patient, as though you are family. What a positive environment!”

– Sheree, Lilliana & Isabella DeSouza


Annette Stephenson“As an audiologist, I am constantly on my feet, and in awkward positions while treating my patients. As a result I experience a lot of lower back, neck and shoulder pain and tightness. Being in a recent car accident has only added to my discomfort. Having no relief from medication, I decided to try chiropractic and found Dr. Bogart and PH &WC. Since beginning treatment, I have so much relief and less stress. Dr. Bogart’s attention to detail and the ability to put you at ease are what make the experience enjoyable. Chiropractic is a great approach to holistic healing and no one does it better than Dr. Joseph Bogart and his fabulous team at PH & WC.”

– Annette Stephenson Au.D.
