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 effects 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 including viruses (CMV, EBV, HHV-6, Coxsackie), bacteria (Bartonella, Ehrlichia, Mycoplasma, Chlamydia, Staphylococcus & Streptococcus), parasites (Babesia, Giardia, Fluke), and fungi (Candida rugosa, Aspergillus) may be found in patients with Lyme disease. 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 physiologic 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.
