Although a quick search online suggests that a two-week course of antibiotics is enough to be rid of Lyme disease, it’s unfortunately not so simple. Remember that the disease morphs and attacks the body in three ways, so all three must to be addressed simultaneously and with the right support in order to facilitate recovery. Biofilms that shield the Lyme, shifting co-infections, and built-in resistance to antimicrobials require a different strategy than used for common infections. Our doctors follow a combination approach that incorporates both allopathic and naturopathic treatment modalities, and is involved at every step along the way to help you receive the support needed in clearing the Lyme with its co-infections while helping restore your health.
Step one is to determine the state of a person’s underlying terrain such as environmental toxicity, infection load, co-infections at-play, immune system functioning, genetic polymorphisms, and so forth. We believe every patient with Lyme disease is unique and every patient requires an individualized treatment plan. No two plans are the same.
