Do you have Lyme Disease or a tick-borne illness?
View our checklist of Lyme Disease symptoms.
Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne illness in North America and is a bacterial illness that is spread by Deer tick bites and most likely any biting insect including mosquitos.
The east coast is a high-risk area, so you may have visited an area where Lyme disease is prevalent and if you think you have been bitten by a tick, you should seek immediate medical attention. Only a minority of insect bites leads to Lyme disease but the longer the tick remains attached to your skin, or the illness remains undetected, the greater your risk of getting the disease.
Lyme disease occurs in phases — the early phase beginning at the site of the bite with an expanding ring of redness like a bull’s eye. Lyme disease can also affect the skin, joints, heart, and the nervous system.
The chronic phase of tick borne diseases (Lyme disease) can be very difficult to detect and often misdiagnosed as MS, fibromyalgia, arthritis and psychiatric disorders. Standard treatments are often ineffective, costly and endless.
Delaware Integrative Medical Center is a Lyme literate institution and specializes in an integrative approach to the treatment of Lyme disease.
Dr. Childers, a respected international clinician in the treatment of Lyme associated diseases, frequently presents new findings at medical conferences.
Here he presented to the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society on “Integrative Approaches to Tick-Borne Diseases”.
Arthritis Osteoarthritis (OA) Osteoarthritis is a chronic disease affects some 27 million Americans. OA is characterized by the breakdown of cartilage – the part of a joint that cushions the ends of the bones and allows easy movement. As cartilage deteriorates, bones begin to rub against one another which can result in stiffness and pain.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Chronic fatigue syndromes (CFS) are similar to those of most common viral infections although they last longer and can be associated with muscle aches, headache, and fatigue.
Fibromyalgia Fibromyalgia produces widespread pain, disturbed sleep, and overall exhaustion. People with fibromyalgia frequently report pain all over their bodies, most notably in their muscles, ligaments and tendons along with the feeling of exhaustion
Joint Pain Joint pain is the sensation of discomfort or soreness in a joint or joints of the body. Joints are the spaces or areas where two or more bones meet, such as the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow and ankle.
Major Autohemotherapy Major auto hemotherapy (MAH) is a treatment that involves mixing the patient’s blood with medical grade ozone. This mixture is then return to the patient.
Detoxification Therapy There were two basic things that the body needs in order to heal itself. One is nutrients. The other is detoxification
IV Therapy (Myers cocktail, Vit. C) In today’s modern society of nutrient depleted foods (fast food, processed food, vegetables picked green and shipped thousands of miles and stored in coolers for weeks or months before we eat them ), and daily exposure to hundreds of toxic chemicals, our bodies are “left out in the cold” so to speak, and health suffers.
Pulse Electromagnetic Therapy Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEFT) is a reparative technique most commonly used in the treatment of areas of the body that won’t heal. This includes fractures that won’t heal as well as damage ligaments and organs.
Ultraviolet blood irradiation (oxidative blood irradiation) Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) is a procedure that exposes the blood to light to heighten the body’s immune response and to kill infections. With exposure to UV light, bacteria and viruses in your bloodstream absorb five times as much photonic energy as do your red and white blood cells.
Chelation Therapy Chelation therapy is used to treat heavy-metal poisoning by lead, cadmium, aluminum, Mercury, arsenic, and even iron. Because chelation appears to improve circulation and reduce toxic chemical reactions in the body, it has also been used successfully for the treatment of angina, coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis, arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, even Eye disease such as macular degeneration.
Frequency Specific Micro current Frequency Specific Microcurrent provides a mechanism to restore in organisms energy that is been adversely impacted by injury, toxins, infection, inflammation, or stress even when other treatments have failed.
