In the majority of cases, chronic Lyme disease (Link) can be successfully combated by long-term treatment.
Drawing on 20+ years of experience in the field of Lyme disease, Dr. Carsten Nicolaus, MD PhD and Medical and Executive Director of the BCA-clinic, has developed a holistic therapy approach to treat patients suffering from tick-borne diseases (including Lyme disease) and other chronic infections.
The therapy methods used at the BCA-clinic follow ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Disease Society) guidelines, the recommendations of the German Borreliosis Society as well drawing on the extensive experience of clinic’s own doctors.
The therapy concept consists of three pillars:
- Therapy of the infection
- Therapy of inflammation
- Therapy of the mostly weakened immune system
Each patient receives an individual therapy plan according to the infections that are detected.
We offer alternative naturopathic treatment regimens to patients who do not wish to or cannot carry out antibiotic therapy (e.g. due to intolerance, allergies or poor blood test results).
In addition, we offer probiotic supplements to reduce the side-effects of antibiotics and we recommend that our patients follow a simple, healthy diet and lifestyle.
The aim of the therapy is to completely destroy all pathogens while strengthening the patient’s immune system.
The BCA-clinic offers the following accompanying therapies:
- Targeted nutritional supplementation
- Tweeter therapy
- Magnetic Field Therapy
- Light Therapy
- Nutrition Consultation
- Exercise Therapy
These therapies are part of the compact treatment.
Nutritional counselling shows patients how they have a better chance of stabilising and/or improving their weakened immune system through detoxification of the body. This can be achieved by following a predominantly alkaline diet, taking dietary supplements and ensuing a regular intake of healthy fatty acids, fish and fruit.
By working in conjunction with complementary therapies, antibiotics are more effective in killing pathogens. Oxygen therapy and the use of targeted dietary supplements can reduce the side-effects of antibiotics and compensate for previously diagnosed vitamin deficiencies.
Patients who opt for naturopathic therapy also benefit from these complementary therapies.
Patients with multiple infectious diseases often suffer from severe chronic pain caused by inflammatory reactions. Our doctors prescribe necessary painkillers as part of their pain management therapy and also offer acupuncture, TENS therapy and tweeter therapy.
