Treatment For Bartonella Infection

A Co-infection of Lyme Disease

What is Bartonella infection, aka Cat Scratch Disease?

Bartonella is a group of bacteria that can cause a range of illnesses in humans and animals. 

The bacteria are transmitted to humans through contact with infected fleas, ticks, other arthropods, cats, dogs, and rodents, or contact with contaminated soil or water. Bartonella is a co-infection to Borrelia, the bacteria that causes Lyme disease. 

Bartonella henselae infection, commonly called cat scratch disease (CSD), occurs when bacteria are transmitted from a cat to a person during a scratch contaminated with flea stool. Infected cats that lick an open wound or bite can also spread the bacteria.

Symptoms of Bartonella Disease

Diagnosis is often difficult due to the wide range of symptoms associated with the disease. Symptoms of Bartonella infections can vary from mild illnesses, such as skin rashes and fever, to more severe conditions like endocarditis (inflammation of the heart valves), neurological disorders, and chronic fatigue syndrome. 

People with weakened immune systems may be at a greater risk of developing Bartonella-related illnesses. Traditional medical facilities typically treat Bartonella infection with antibiotics or antimicrobial agents. However, some patients require long-term treatment plans.

Bartonella Treatment at Sanoviv 

Our whole-body hyperthermia therapy is a groundbreaking approach to treating Lyme disease and its co-infections. During the procedure, your core body temperature is raised to 42 degrees Celsius under controlled hospital conditions, creating a safe yet highly effective environment for killing Borrelia and Bartonella bacteria. The process lasts several hours, during which you remain sedated and comfortable. 

To further enhance the efficacy of this treatment, our program uses advanced protocols specifically for Bartonella therapy developed by Sanoviv in combination with hyperthermia. This approach has been proven to be more successful at eliminating this co-infection of Lyme disease than traditional antibiotics or other treatments while promoting detoxification and stimulating a boosted immune system response. 

All these remarkable benefits make whole-body hyperthermia, combined with Sanoviv proprietary treatments, an innovative solution for managing Lyme disease and co-infections.

How to Prevent Bartonella Infection

Preventing a Bartonella infection requires taking steps to avoid a tick bite, such as applying insect repellent to exposed skin and wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants while outdoors to create a physical barrier between you and ticks. You should also practice frequent hand-washing with soap and water, especially after contacting animals or their environment. 

Additionally, it is essential to keep cats indoors and limit contact with stray cats, rodents, and other wildlife. Wearing protective clothing when handling any animal, such as clothing that covers the arms, is also beneficial. A medical professional should immediately attend to animal bites to reduce the risk of transmission. If you have a pet diagnosed with Bartonella, it is important to regularly clean the animal’s environment to reduce the chances of infection spread.
