What You’ll Learn
- Goop turned to Dr. Szulc and Innovative Medicine to write an article entitled “Why There Is No One-Size-Fits-All Approach to Treating Lyme Disease“
- Questions answered include “How do you view chronic Lyme disease?”, “Have you found certain therapies to be most effective for your Lyme patients?”, and “What kind of diet do you recommend for Lyme patients?”
- Included in the article is a glossary of potential therapies for Lyme disease
- You’ll also learn Dr. Szulc’s advice on what is important for maintaining health and well-being
Be sure to check out our article in goop (the popular wellness and lifestyle site from Gwyneth Paltrow) on Lyme disease, in which Dr Thomas Szulc and Innovative Medicine contributed to shedding insight into this complex, multi-faceted, and often misunderstood condition.
The better question is why not? Aside from being one of the most talked about conditions today, it’s an incredibly complex condition that requires a complete new approach to truly have lasting results in most diagnosed chronic cases.
Lyme disease can impact joints, multiple organs, systems and often affects the brain and nervous system. Not only are some of these areas (such as deep connective tissue with limited blood circulation) virtually out of reach of most antibiotics which are delivered through the bloodstream via the circulatory system, but spirochetes are notoriously resilient. They have an in vitro replication cycle of about seven days, one of the longest of any known bacteria, and killing off the weaker spirochetes is believed to give rise to ever stronger, more virulent, and more resistant ones. In addition, the presence of multiple other pathogens can be found in patients with Lyme disease that include:
- Viruses: CMV, EBV, HHV-6, Coxsackie
- Bacteria: Bartonella, Ehrlichia, Mycoplasma, Chlamydia, Staphylococcus & Streptococcus
- Parasites: Babesia, Giardia, Fluke and
- Fungi: Candida rugosa, Aspergillus
Finally, a number of other underlying dysfunction such as a compromised immune system, high toxic burden, emotional stress, and energetic imbalances often play a role in Lyme disease patients. So how does one treat Lyme disease?
That’s what goop interviewed Dr. Szulc and us to find out. The answer Innovative Medicine believes, as was already alluded to, is not to only target these pathogens but also to shift the underlying physiological condition of the patient so that such pathogens can no longer persist! – And this is not accomplished by chasing and treating each symptom, but rather by understanding the underlying systems, how they are involved, and strengthen and support them to naturally cleanse the body and rid it of unwanted guests.
