Lyme Disease Treatment

After thorough symptom and history analysis along with testing, our doctors will craft a customized treatment plan to address these critical healing pillars:

  • Prepping the body to receive treatment by restoring detoxification pathways to handle “die off” or “herx reactions”, preventing the creation of a more toxic environment.
  • Improving cellular health to strengthen the body’s own ability to heal – the healthier the body’s terrain, the harder it is for infections to survive.
  • Combating biofilm to enable efficacy of antimicrobials (herbs or antibiotics) and shorten treatment duration.
  • Controlling auto-immunity and inflammation that is activated in chronic infections.
  • Balancing the endocrine system (thyroid and adrenal hormone function) which can be severely impacted by long-term infections.

In addition to antimicrobials (herbal, oral, intramuscular or intravenous antibiotics) used to kill off spirochete bacteria or co-infections, you’ll begin your custom protocol with one of more of these treatments:

Peptide Therapy: We’re among the first clinics to offer these innovative hormone-like signaling molecules that influence specific functions: thymus gland and immune health function, neurologic and brain tissue healing, infection-damaged cartilage regrowth, and so much more.

LDN Therapy: LDN increases the release of Opioid Growth Factor and reduces inflammatory immune cell signaling of your body-wide “look out cells”.

Ozone therapy: This mild prooxidant challenge increases production of glutathione peroxidase, reductase, super oxide dismutase, and catalase, cleansing the blood of bacteria and viruses, balancing immune function, and reducing inflammation.

PEMF therapy: Our high-powered, clinically validated PEMF machine sends magnetic pulses through the tissue to: stimulate cellular repair, open cell membrane passages, allow cells to take up nutrients, improve excretion and waste detoxification, improve circulation (enabling antimicrobial delivery to less accessible sites like joints), disrupt biofilm, reduce inflammation, balance neurotransmitters, speed the healing process, and generally improve cellular health.

Low Dose Immunotherapy: This therapy improves immune tolerance to chronic infections and balances the cytokine storm that causes severe symptoms in chronic tickborne infections (or in true cases of Post Lyme Disease Syndrome).

IV Therapy: This treatment improves fatigue, immune function, and detoxification via common IV drips like: Meyer’s Cocktail, Phosphatidyl Choline, Glutathione, Poly MVA, Anti-Viral cocktail, Vitamin C, and Magnesium.

Homeopathy: Ledum palustreAurum arsenicum, and Lyme Nosodes correct root imbalances by mimicking the disease state and stimulating the body to heal itself.

Botanical and Nutritional Therapy: Our doctors are trained in Beyond Balance, Buhner Herbs, and Cowden protocols – highly targeted antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification therapies.

Acupuncture: Naturopath Dr. Johanna Mauss also practices acupuncture, which provides almost immediate pain and stress relief naturally.

Lyme Disease Testimonials

Dr. Andrew Chevalier, ND
"I’ve been suffering from a horrible disease for around 11 years. I’ve been neglected by doctors for about eight years, told I was crazy, that my disease is all in my head, there’s nothing they can do about it, etc. When I came to this place I was overjoyed, I’ve cried with happiness because of finding this place. This medical team is absolutely phenomenal and I would give them five stars and a 110% recommendation. This is something that is saving my life, and I know many other people that have the same experience as I do. They..."
Dr. Andrew Chevalier, ND
"Dr Chevalier and his team have created a very high quality practice over the past year. I am a very well-trained surgeon with very high standards, and have been very pleased and impressed with the quality of care this team provides consistently. Dr C has assembled a very bright and high quality team including Briana, the very bright, competent and professional practice manager, Rene a very skilled iv nurse, and Kacey and two superb phlebotomists, Amy and Summer. Dr Chevalier's focus is on interventions which strengthen the patient's own health and immune system. This approach has been invaluable for..."
Dr. Nicole Schertell, ND, CCT
"Honestly, Dr. Scherell was my last stop. After years of being passed around, I had one foot in the grave. I could barely function. Today my life is so different. After being diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2013, Dr. Schertell started treating me. She has done for me what no other doctor could do. She is very smart and I love her dedicated staff. I owe them my life."
Dr. Nicole Schertell, ND, CCT
"A lot of people say that you cannot "cure" Lyme disease, but I have been Lyme symptom free for over 7 months now. I am now focusing on healing my body and balancing hormones. Dr Shertell saved my life! "
Dr. Jennifer Smith, ND
"I had my first appointment with Dr. Jennifer Smith this week. I have been to over 100 doctors in nine years. With Dr. Smith, I loved how she didn’t make assumptions or jump to a conclusion after I handed her my list of symptoms and past blood work. She took the time to understand the history and then ordered more testing. She did some other tests and was just very compassionate and understanding. She knows people like me have been through a lot. I would highly recommend you see her even if you already have a Lyme doctor. She does..."
Jennifer Goldstock BSN, MSN, ANP-BC
"Listen up folks !!!!! I had some bad experiences through misdiagnosis and courses of treatment until I was finally recommended to Jen and her staff at synRG Integrative. The compassion, knowledge and understanding from the moment I walked through that door is something I will never forget. Lyme is a terrible, painful and debilitating disease. Jennifer and her staff (Katie and Julie are incredible passionate people) are with you every step of the way during your course of treatment. I normally don't complete reviews, but I had to in this case to recommend synRG Integrative to..."
"If you want to get better from Lyme disease with lots of co-infections, then I suggest that you see Dr. Richey! Do not waste your money elsewhere! She and her family have Lyme disease, too, and she has a vested interested in keeping up-to-date on Lyme treatments. She knows what we are going through because she has gone through the same thing. She will understand you!"
Dr. Lesley Fein, MD, MPH
"Typically, I do not leave reviews, however after my experience with Dr. Fein I feel an obligation to do so. Let me begin by stating I have seen many specialists over the years after I was misdiagnosed for 10 years and was bound to a wheelchair. When I met her I had to choose between her and Dr. Frid of NY who, at the time, was treating me. I’m glad I chose Dr. Fein. Not only is her knowledge of this disease unmatched, but she is humble, caring, and listens to your concerns, in fact there..."
Mary-Beth Charno, RN, MSN, ANP-C
"I can't speak highly enough about Mary-Beth. She was a tremendous help when I was diagnosed with Lyme this past year. Her expertise in the area of Lyme disease and co-infections is such an asset to the healthcare community as it has become so prevalent today. Additionally, Mary-Beth's background in both conventional training as well as functional medicine is invaluable as well. Her approach to treatment not only includes addressing the symptoms of the infection, but she also addresses and supports the whole person. As a result, the common side effects of the treatment were lessened and I tolerated treatment..."
Dr. Charles Crist, MD, PC
"I have been under Dr. Crist’s care now for about 6 years, and I can honestly say he saved my life. After 10 ½ months of being misdiagnosed and basically abandoned by my family doctor and the local medical community, I was feeling pretty lost and hopeless. It’s hard to describe how much hope my first appointment with Dr. Crist gave me, because I had gone through months of seeing doctors that told me anything from “Lyme Disease doesn’t exist in Kansas” to “You’re just depressed.” Dr. Crist is everything all of those doctors were not: he is kind, knowledgeable,..."
Dr. Seth Osgood, DNP, FNP-BC, EMT-P, IFMCP
"I’ve been a patient of Dr. Seth’s for the past year and my husband has been a patient for the past two years. He is incredibly knowledgeable, researched, compassionate, caring and detailed. He’s a good listener, too. Dr. Seth has helped my husband successfully gain control of his Rheumatoid arthritis without drugs and he is now in remission. I had been to countless doctors over the years trying to find a cause for my ongoing fatigue and muscle pain. Dr. Seth was the only medical professional who took the time to dig deep and tried to find a root cause...."
Rita M. Rhoads, MPH, CRNP, CNM
"I would have died if I wouldn't have gone to see Rita. I had every lyme disease symptom you could possibly imagine. After working with Rita a few years ago I can live a normal life again. If you have lyme disease or think that you might, I would highly recommend her. She literally saved my life."
Dr. Andrew Chevalier, ND
"I went to Dr Andy Chevalier on April 11th of 2018 for umbilical stem cells. I had Aplastic Anemia from Lyme, Bartonella, CMV, and EBV entering my bones. Her I am one month later able to walk, run, swim, no pain except a little left in my neck and back, no seizures or migraines, able to handle an entire day of doing things I love and want to do. I owe him my life. The only thing I wanted to do but couldn’t was take him and the entire staff home with me. Amazingly beautiful souls!!! Niki ..."
"I want to thank Dr. Richey for her expert care. She literally saved my daughter's life when no one else would take me or her seriously! I greatly appreciate her thorough attention."
Dr. Tenesha Wards, DC
"I've been sick for 20+ years. The last 10 have been spent in the bed. I've been to EVERY specialist there is in my area and Houston. They piled pills upon pills to treat my symptoms and labeled me with "fibromyalgia." I knew that was not the problem, but finally just accepted I would never get better. One day while sitting on my floor exhausted, crying, scrolling through Facebook, an ad popped up for Doctor Tenesha Wards. She described me and my life and my symptoms completely and said there was an answer. For the first time, I..."
