Effectively Treat Lyme Disease With Functional Medicine
Conventional healthcare often fails to identify and provide the right care for tickborne diseases like Lyme disease and coinfections.
Our functional medicine approach to Lyme disease evaluates and addresses all interconnected body systems. In addition to diagnosing and treating the core infections, we correct immune dysfunction, inflammation, hormone imbalances, and other metabolic disorders, to help you recover.
Our Process for Addressing Tickborne Diseases
Holistic Approach to Diagnosis
We investigate the many interconnected parts of your chronic illness and gather data on your condition with comprehensive testing for evidence of infections, detailed symptom tracking, and wearable technology.
Root Cause Treatment
We identify and treat the core infections while also balancing other body systems as needed. With special emphasis on the latest research, we cast a wide net to identify all areas where we can intervene to help you recover.
Proactive, Continuous Care
The mainstream medical model is reactive and episodic. In contrast, we provide proactive, ongoing care across the whole spectrum of your health. We work in partnership with you while you recover and help improve your long term health.
Multi-faceted treatments that support a healthy immune response offer the best chance of putting tickborne diseases into remission
We focus on targeted nutritional interventions to reduce inflammation and support your immune system. This helps your body recover, and enables other Lyme treatments to work better.
Gut health plays a crucial role in recovering from Lyme disease therefor our approach focuses on supporting and healing your gut. Lyme disease and coinfections can result in gut inflammation, immune dysregulation, and autoimmune activation. Without a deep focus on gut health, we frequently see poor response to treatments, and increased risk of relapse.
Neuroplasticity and Emotional Healing
Many people with complex chronic illnesses live in a state of stress and limbic system activation. With tickborne illnesses, the medical journey can be traumatic given the complexity, difficulty with proper diagnosis and treatment, and the disputed nature of the illness. We have learned from experience that emotional healing and brain retraining is a key part of recovery, and we support you with comprehensive programs and coaching to help heal your brain and recover your health.
People with tickborne diseases frequently suffer from dysregulation in hormones, such as adrenal, thyroid, and sex hormones. Testing and treating hormone imbalances can help with your mood, energy, sleep, and recovery.
Treating Mold Toxicity
Years of practice and research show that exposure to mold interferes with immune health in many people, including those with Lyme disease. Mold toxicity can mimic or exacerbate tickborne infections and must be addressed before deep healing can occur.
Conventional medical treatment often relies solely on pharmaceutical antimicrobials like antibiotics to treat Lyme disease. Our care team uses a much broader tool kit, with pharmaceutical, botanical, and other natural antimicrobials as part of our comprehensive approach. This can give you deeper healing while minimizing damage to your gut, which is a core part of your recovery.
