Naturopathic Medicine For Lyme Disease

There are a lot of people in the Sacramento area who are diagnosed with Lyme disease, and many others who probably are having trouble with their health, and can’t figure out why, who haven’t been diagnosed yet.  Lyme disease can steal your quality of life; you may experience extreme fatigue and body aches, mind fog and digestive issues, or it may even progress to dangerous autoimmunity and result in death. It is a dangerous chameleon that can look like many other problems. Therefore, if you haven’t been diagnosed, and you have health issues that no one can find the cause of, Lyme disease, with or without other latent infections could be the culprit.

Frontline conventional treatment consists of antibiotics, mainly doxycycline, orally or IV.  Even though I am an alternative medical doctor, the antibiotics are often very important to get this disease under control.  There are alternative methods, however, which can help your body minimize the side effects of the antibiotics (like probiotics for example).  The courses of antibiotic treatment for Lyme disease are quite long, thus, you definitely want a high quality probiotic to help protect your immune system, and your gut function.  We offer the best product available on the market with 150 billion live cultures.  We also offer immune supporting peat baths, which are detoxifying, immunomodulating, and deeply relaxing.

Herbal and Homeopathic formulas are also available to help your body withstand and heal the infection that is stealing your quality of life.  Artemesia and other herbs have been found to have anti-Borrellia actions, for example.  We also offer extensive intravenous therapies, including Hydrogen Peroxide and nutrient IVs.

Endocrine support, especially adrenal support, is very important because this disease is very stressful.  If the body isn’t being supported for adrenal function, a Lyme patient isn’t healing.  Exercise has also been found to help with Lyme, but if you are too tired to exercise, it obviously can’t help you.  We can help you regain your energy with adaptogenic and supplement support.

There are also theories about bio-films protecting the bacteria, and hiding it from the antibiotics.  Proteolytic enzymes and NaEDTA can be used to break apart the bio-films and expose the bacteria to the anti-biotic agents.

Lyme disease is very inflammatory, and the inflammation can cause serious health problems including autoimmunity and psychiatric problems.  We use anti-inflammatory diets tailored to each patient based on food sensitivity testing to help heal up the leaky gut adding to the inflammation.  When we clear the picture of environmental inflammation, the immune system is better able to address the infection.

In addition, we do genetic testing to assess your detoxification pathways so we are better able to decrease your oxidative stress and lighten your load.

We can help you get your quality of life back!  Call 916 241 9325 today for an appointment.
