Chronic Lyme Disease

Comprehensive and Individualized Treatment for Lyme Disease to Help You Regain Your Health and Vitality

Lyme disease is a debilitating disease that can impact every area of your life. Left untreated, Lyme disease can worsen over time and cause long-term damage to your health.

Sanoviv is here to help. 

Our team of experts works with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses the root cause of your illness. We offer a comprehensive treatment protocol featuring whole-body hyperthermia, which is only available in a handful of facilities worldwide. Combined with our integrative approach, our unique Lyme disease therapies can help you regain your health and vitality.

What Is Lyme Disease? 

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick. It can cause a wide range of symptoms, which can make it difficult to diagnose. When the infection first occurs, acute Lyme disease is usually treated with antibiotics. But if left untreated, it can develop into Chronic Lyme disease resulting in serious health complications that no longer respond to antibiotics.

How do you get it?

Most humans are infected through the bites of immature ticks called nymphs. Nymphs are tiny (less than 2 mm) and difficult to see; they feed during the spring and summer months. Adult ticks can also transmit Lyme disease, but they are much larger, so they are easier to identify and remove. In most cases, the tick must be attached for 36 to 48 hours or more before the Lyme disease bacterium can be transmitted.

Acute Lyme Disease

When Lyme Disease is transmitted by a tick, patients often develop flu-like symptoms within 3-30 days. Symptoms may include a rash, sometimes shaped like a bullseye, and flu-like symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, fatigue, muscle and joint aches, and swollen lymph nodes. If these symptoms occur, and there is potential tick exposure, seek immediate medical attention. Many cases of acute Lyme disease can be cured with a 2- to 4-week course of oral antibiotics if caught soon enough. So, prompt assessment by your regular doctor is important. Left untreated, or if the antibiotics are not effective, it can develop into Chronic Lyme Disease, sometimes referred to as Post-Treatment Lyme Disease.

Chronic Lyme Disease

If the infection is not caught soon enough, it sometimes becomes chronic, where it no longer responds to oral antibiotics as it did in the acute stage.  Even those who are treated promptly occasionally develop Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome.

Symptoms of Chronic Lyme Disease vary, but often include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Nerve pain, numbness, or tingling in the hands or feet
  • Brain fog, difficulty thinking or remembering
  • Digestive issues
  • food and chemical sensitivities
  • headache

When Lyme becomes chronic, patients sometimes need aggressive support. In the chronic stage, Lyme is often referred to as the “great imitator” because symptoms can mimic those of other illnesses, resulting in mis-diagnosis. If left untreated, Chronic Lyme disease can affect other body systems and cause more severe health complications. 

Sanoviv can often help.  We have affordable testing, a free consultation with a doctor, and comprehensive treatment plans that can help you to get your life back.  

How Sanoviv Treats Chronic Lyme Disease

At Sanoviv, our team of highly-skilled medical professionals works with you on a holistic healing journey from the inside out. When it comes to treating Lyme disease (or any disease of the body for that matter), bio-individuality is key.

Laboratory tests can identify co-infections as well as borrelia bacteria.  They can also help identify the extent of inflammation or damage done by the bacteria. As a result, patients with Chronic Lyme disease can have greater peace of mind knowing that they have received medical care based on reliable results from an experienced laboratory for optimal recovery.

Our comprehensive in-patient Chronic Lyme Treatment program provides personalized treatments in a healing environment to help you finally regain your quality of life and make tremendous strides towards positive health.

Our primary Lyme disease treatment, whole-body hyperthermia, strikes at the root of the issue by targeting the Lyme bacteria (and most co-infections).  The goal is to eliminate the infection so that the body can begin to heal.

Whole-body hyperthermia is carried out in a hospital environment, using advanced equipment specially designed for this therapy. It raises your core body temperature to 42 degrees Celsius, a temperature that has been shown to be lethal to the bacteria that cause Lyme and co-infections. This is a safe, yet effective, therapeutic temperature that can effectively eliminate Lyme bacteria, break down biofilms, stimulate detoxification pathways, and strengthen immune responses. 

The treatment is performed while guests are sedated, allowing them to rest comfortably throughout the several-hour process. Our program utilizes a unique combination of additional proprietary protocols along with the hyperthermia treatment to maximize results, further enhancing its efficacy. To obtain optimum outcomes from this form of Chronic Lyme treatment, guests will undergo two hyperthermia sessions during an intensive two-week stay with us.

To complement the core hyperthermia treatment, we offer an array of supportive Lyme disease treatments under one roof in a peaceful healing atmosphere. Detoxifying therapies help prepare the body to disperse toxins and die-off from hyperthermia.  To ensure your comfort and well-being, we provide nutritious organic meals, freshly prepared, as well as advanced diagnostics, antimicrobial therapies, and supplemental medical treatments – all so you can focus on what matters most: getting better. 

This comprehensive inpatient Lyme disease treatment program is designed to tackle the disease at its source, with various modalities working simultaneously together. Our Lyme disease protocol has shown effectiveness in treating Borrelia, as well as co-infections such as Bartonella, Babesia, Rickettsia, and many more.
