Lyme disease is a condition that is spread by deer ticks and in some cases mosquitoes, and anyone who is bitten by a deer tick has the potential of developing Lyme disease. Several treatments are available, with varying levels of efficacy.
How is Lyme Disease Treated?
Early infections are often treated using antibiotics. Antibiotics may be administered orally, in liquid, tablet or capsule form, over periods of two to four weeks. The problem with antibiotic therapy is that unless it’s known when the disease was contracted, it can be difficult to determine the correct length of treatment. If it’s too short, there’s a possibility that not all the bacteria will be destroyed. If it’s too long, the patient can run the risk of side effects like yeast infections or digestive disorders.
What is the Best Lyme Disease Treatment?
At LifeWorks Wellness Center, our preferred protocol is ozone therapy. Of course you’ve heard of ozone – it’s found high in the atmosphere, in the appropriately named ozone layer. When ozone is used for medical purposes, it is passed through an electrical coil that causes it to split into three atoms (usually, ozone is composed of two different atoms). In this way, ozone it no longer O2 – it becomes O3, and that third atom is what “supercharges” it and makes it effective as a medical treatment.
When ozone is introduced into the body of the person who is suffering from Lyme disease, it increases the blood’s oxygen level. That’s what facilitates healing. The increased oxygen level offers the following benefits:
- Detoxifies the liver
- Decreases the level of uric acid in the body
- De-clogs the blood cells
- Improves the circulation
- Enhances the immune system
- Kills viruses, bacteria and fungi
- Improves cellular metabolism
When you consider these myriad benefits, you can see that ozone is very helpful to your overall health. It boosts the immune system and works to ease the symptoms of a variety of illnesses, not the least of which is Lyme disease.
How Is Ozone Therapy Delivered?
At LifeWorks Wellness Center, the ozone therapy is administered intravenously. While Major Autohemotherapy (MAH) is delivered, the patient simply relaxes in a comfortable chair. His or her blood is extracted and delivered to an IV bag. Then ozone is injected, and the bag is agitated in order to allow the ozone to be absorbed by the blood cells. The ozonated blood is then sent back to the body through an IV drip. Another alternative is Biophoton Therapy or UVBI treatment in which a small quantity of blood is drawn from patient, mixed in a bag with saline, infused with ozone and then exposed to UV light as it returns to the body, via an IV drip. Ozone therapy is a key part of Lyme disease treatment and patient testimonials speak of its efficacy.
When treating Lyme disease we usually combine ozone therapy with one or more other modalities. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) and Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy (MAS Mat) are both offered to patients who have a lot of pain as part of their symptoms. IV therapy such as Myers’ Cocktails are very beneficial is boosting the immune system back up and Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant which potentiates the Myers’ Cocktail.
