Conditions We Treat
Lyme disease (LD) and Post – Lyme syndrome (PLS) are very challenging clinical conditions to treat because Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) is a highly adaptable organism that can make eradication difficult. The Bb can evade your immune system and actually change its form to make it impervious to antibiotics.
To make matters worse, ticks that transmit Bb can also simultaneously transmit other infectious diseases like Bartonella, Ehrlichia and Babesia.
Complicating matters even more, if you have been infected with Lyme disease, your immunesystem can be hypersensitive to other factors such as mold and food sensitivities.
Additionally, the stress on your immune, nervous and hormone systems from Lyme disease can contribute to other problems like thyroid dysfunction, adrenal dysfunction and autonomic nervous system dysfunction.
