Antibiotics, IV Therapy and Hyperthermia
Best outcomes for chronic Lyme patients require a multi pronged approach. This includes the use of antibiotics, IV Therapies and physical treatments such as hyperthermia. Emotional work is often necessary as stress hormones such as cortisol can result in depressed immune systems.
What is Hyperthermia?
Heating the body to a temperature seen during a high fever. There are two mechanisms of action - 1. Boosting immune cell function and 2. Killing the bacteria
There are two ways to do this typically. In a clinical setting, quite often the patient will have to travel out of country to a clinic such as St. Georg Klinikum in Germany. https://www.stgeorgklinikum.de
In this setting the clinic with hook a patient to IV medications, put them in a hyperthermia machine and drip the medicine while heating the body. The patient is often under anaesthetic so they are more comfortable and don't panic from the heat. I have seen some pretty amazing results with this clinic.
If one cannot travel out of country, your ND can help to find a local way to achieve similar results but in a less clinical setting. Results may not be as dramatic but can be achieved with some dedication.
