Lyme Disease Treatment Step 6 of 10
Lyme disease can be found all around the world. Transmitted by ticks. The United States has well over 300,000 cases of Lyme disease every year! Symptoms of the infectious disease include a red rash, joint pain, headaches, and fatigue. These symptoms can appear anywhere from 3 to 30 days after being bitten by a tick.
As of right now, there is no vaccine that can prevent the disease, but there are antibiotics that can help if treated in the early stages. After 15 years of working on a more effective treatment, we at East Valley Naturopathic Doctors now recommend our 10-step program to help patients on the road to recovery.
The sixth step in our program to Lyme disease recovery is adding regular IV therapy to support your immune response. IV therapy can purge toxins from your system to improve the effectiveness of our Lyme protocols. Lyme disease and other infectious diseases take advantage of weakened immune systems. When your immune system is reduced, it will need a boost to drag itself out of its exhausted state. To promote the most effective response, we will kill the bacterial infections and flush, or detox your lymph system of debris. Intravenous therapy is one of the most effective therapies to boost the immune and detox function. A few of these therapies include Ozone therapy, Hydrogen Peroxide, high dose Vitamin C and Detox Defender with glutathione. If you have an autoimmune disease, a common concern is needed to remove toxic heavy metal which has accumulated over a lifetime from amalgams, vaccines, metal implants, and polluted air and water supplies. After appropriate testing and evaluation, chelation therapy may also be recommended.
IV therapy is completed once every 2 weeks through the duration of the Lyme protocol which is recommended 9 months. Average IV therapy cost is $140 per IV session.
