Acute lyme disease is relatively simple to treat. Chronic lyme disease, however, can only be treated effectively if the absolute best of integrative medicine is brought to bear on the situation. Patients often suffer with chronic symptoms that have eluded medical diagnosis for years before these are finally attributed to lyme disease. Sadly, at this point many systems of the body have been thrown off by the stress of this chronic infection making treatment more complex. The CLEAR practitioners all treat Lyme disease and respect that it becomes a multi system disorder that needs to be systematically unwound.
We find that the primary focus needs to be on restoring the health and vitality of the body so that the organisms are no longer a match for your cells.
Factors vital to creating an environment that is no longer hospitable to pathogens include:
- pH optimization
- Restoring cell membrane integrity
- Optimizing mitochondrial function and intracellular energy production
- Restoring energetic balance and the correct field of information
- Hormone balancing
- Mineral replenishment
- Immune system modulation
- Diet and lifestyle optimization
- Work on emotional and spiritual levels.
Once we have laid the above foundation we can turn our attention to killing pathogens. We almost exclusively use natural modalities such as herbs and oxidative treatments. We can often take care of multiple classes of organisms: chronic intracellular bacteria, parasites and biofilm colonies, fungal infections and viruses at the same time.
Detox needs to be continued through out.
Complicating factors such as mold, dental pathology, and environmental exposures need to be addressed in order to fully heal from Lyme disease.
How do we determine the underlying issues that need to be addressed? Careful history and physical exam, state of the art laboratory testing, and energetic diagnostics BAH.
For best results the patient would work with both the doctor and the health optimization coordinator Cynthia Mears.
