Lyme Disease Treatment
Lyme Disease Treatment
Lyme disease is the most commonly reported tick-borne infectious disease in the United States. Patients with Lyme disease experience detrimental effects of a multisystem disease which presents a number of focal and non-focal symptoms. Because of this, diagnosing the disease can be difficult as symptoms could present as similar symptoms in a variety of other diseases. Nevertheless, early diagnosis and treatment is crucial in ensuring the patient’s complete recovery.
What causes Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease is a tick-borne bacterial infection that is transmitted via a tick bite that transmits the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. Ticks are mostly found in grassy, woodland areas, or places with temperate climates. Not all ticks harbor Lyme disease. However, ticks that transmit Lyme disease also have the ability to transmit a host of other diseases. This is why diagnosis for Lyme disease at early stages, although crucial, is usually mistaken for other illnesses.
One of the hallmark symptoms or side effects of patients infected with Lyme disease is the appearance of Erythema Migrans rashes which usually appear within 3 to 30 days of the bite.
Integrative treatments for Lyme disease
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), appropriate, early antibiotic therapy for Lyme disease can often clear an infection, and the patient recovers completely. Early diagnosis and effective antibiotic treatment are crucial in preventing the occurrence of chronic Lyme disease.
However, although antibiotic therapy can clear any infection, it also results in killing all our body’s natural bacteria flora. Alternatively, Infuze MD believes in using natural treatments or a set of complementary approaches to help patients with Lyme disease without killing off useful bacteria that our body needs.
These treatments can not only help your body clear the disease itself, but also helps in managing symptoms. These treatments can also be used in accordance with antibiotic therapy or a combination of therapies to rebuild the body from within.

UV Blood Sterilization Therapy
Infuze MD recommends this therapy for patients with Lyme disease, other infections, autoimmune diseases, and also cancer patients. It works by strengthening the patient’s blood in order to kill invading bacteria or viruses. At the same time, it rejuvenates the immune system so that the patient not only recovers but also has a strong immune system to fight recurring infections.
Patients with cancer, an infection, or any other illnesses have weakened immune systems and also energy levels. Thus, Infuze MD suggests ozone therapy using pure oxygen that is highly reactive with our cells to stimulate them and eliminate toxins. This highly reactive molecule can also prohibit cancer cells from multiplying as it infuses with the patient’s blood.
Another crucial treatment for Lyme disease patients at Infuze MD is Glutathione therapy. Glutathione is a powerful natural antioxidant and detoxifies the body. Administered intravenously, it detoxifies the body and boosts cell repair, which is just what Lyme disease patients need to heal.
Vitamin C Infusions
Vitamin C is known to be a powerful agent in fighting infections. At Infuze MD, Vitamin C infusions are used in conjunction with other therapies to boost the body’s immune system in fighting against Lyme disease. Infuze MD also recommends Vitamin C infusions post-treatment to help manage symptoms of post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome.
Patients with this syndrome typically experience muscle aches and fatigue even after the infection is cleared. As of now, more research and clinical trials are required to determine the cause and cure.
