Living with Lyme disease, which is often referred to as the “great imitator,” presents many unique challenges.
Lyme disease is difficult to manage and diagnose, its wide array of symptoms can imitate the symptoms of several chronic diseases, making it incredibly difficult to diagnose and manage.
The fight against this complex and multifaceted disease has taken a promising turn at Calgary Integrative Medicine. We employ a unique holistic approach to Lyme disease with a focus on natural and integrative medicine.
This approach revolves around healing and improving the entire body for optimal comfort, healing and wellness.
Lyme disease is a complex illness primarily caused by transmission of the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, through the bite of ticks.
It is known to mimic other chronic diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons’, Lupus, and Fibromyalgia. In addition to these, the disease can also present as chemical sensitivities such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and even some psychiatric illnesses.
It’s clear to see just how Lyme disease has earned itself the nickname of the “great imitator.”
As a result, treating and managing the disease requires a complex and integrative approach that extends beyond the mere eradication of a virus or bacteria.
The comprehensive approach provides a robust management plan for Lyme disease while catering to all other aspects of a patient’s health and wellness.
Here at Calgary Integrative Medicine, we have made significant strides in providing the innovative, natural, and unique approach required for managing and treating Lyme disease.
By combining and blending the expertise of multiple practitioners and modalities, the clinic focuses on improving the overall health of the body – ensuring that every system functions together for optimal well-being.
Our goal is to provide a comprehensive approach that manages the symptoms and progression of the disease, all while covering all aspects of your health and wellness.
At Calgary Integrative Medicine, the first step to managing and treating Lyme disease starts with detection.
This approach involves the identification of all causative agents and dysfunctions that contribute to the disease and its symptoms. Factors such as heavy metal and chemical toxicity, dysregulation of the immune system, detoxification, genetic predispositions, and infections are considered.
Using advanced medical and laboratory diagnostics in addition to a full and thorough medical history, the causative factors are identified. This lays the groundwork for an effective and personalized treatment plan.
The next step is treatment. With the causative factors identified, the clinic designs a specific treatment program for each and every patient. This includes improving digestive health, detoxification, repairing the mitochondria, and correction of genetic predispositions.
The intention of our practitioners and treatment program is to create an environment that is inhospitable for the bacteria causing Lyme disease and setting the stage for healing.
The final step of the process is eradication. A highly individualized plan is administered to eradicate Lyme and its symptoms.
Typically this incorporates a combination of supplements, IV therapy, diet, and lifestyle recommendations. Each treatment plan is tailored to the patient’s unique needs.
This comprehensive 3 step process ensures the management of Lyme disease symptoms and paves the way for a return to optimal health.
The management and treatment of Lyme disease require more than a band-aid approach and symptomatic relief. The multi-systemic nature of Lyme disease demands a tailored and comprehensive approach, with a focus on detection, individualized treatment, and eradication.
Calgary Integrative Medicine offers a unique and holistic approach to health and wellness, providing an avenue for patients to reclaim their health, finding comfort and optimal health once more.
This approach to the treatment showcases the potential of Lyme disease natural treatment and integrative medicine in the management of complex chronic disease.
