Complementary Lyme Disease Services

Holistic Approach to Lyme Disease

Our doctors are trained to view the body as an integrated system where one part impacts and influences another. Lyme disease results in chronic elevation of pro-inflammatory cytokines, multi-system disturbances and disruption of normal functioning. Genetic predispositions often become more evident or active, at this time, complicating the clinic presentation and taxing the body's ability to heal. Mood disorders and insomnia are very common due to alternations in neurotransmitter synthesis and alterations in response to immune system activation. Persistent Lyme disease is an infectious disease with many complicating factors. Post-Lyme disease syndrome is a non-infectious disorder that is caused by an initial infection that leads to multi-system disturbances and activation of epigenetic predispositions. Treating the entire body moves a person closer to their health goals.

Laboratory Diagnostics

There is no perfect Lyme disease test, therefore the Natural Medicine of Stillwater relies on a number of laboratory tests to get a better "snap shot" of the infectious status and your overall health. We use both conventional (two-tier CDC) and laboratory derived (iSpot Lyme, IGeneX, Frey Labs) testing for Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases to best understand your situation. Chronic infections frequently result in progression of other disease and exposes many epigenetic predisposition so additional testing is frequently performed including: neurotransmitter levels, SIBO infection presence, food intolerances, cardiovascular disease risks, adrenal and hormone imbalances.
