Lyme Disease Treatment Center

Treating Patients From All Over The World - (480) 418-0220

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that stems from a tick bite. It develops from a bacteria called “spirochete" (the Borrelia Burgdorferi). The first sign of Lyme disease is the development of a skin rash. As it progresses, the individual develops arthritis and flu-like symptoms. The parts of the body most affected are the joints, skin, heart, and the nervous system. A tick will bite the skin, which sends the bacteria into the body. Unfortunately, many patients do not realize when a tick has bitten them. It is possible that the symptoms could be mistaken for another illness or disease. That is why it is so important to have one of our doctors rule out any other conditions as soon as possible.

As one of the most recognized Lyme disease treatment centers in the nation, you can be confident that we understand how serious Lyme disease is. Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine is a diversified integrative medical center serving Arizona and the entire world. We combine our experience with traditional and alternative medicine to deliver a holistic medical experience. What sets our Lyme disease treatment center apart is that Arizona is one of only a handful of states that allows alternative medicine to be practiced alongside traditional medicine. We do not simply treat the symptoms—we help you heal so that you no longer have to suffer from the disease.

Lyme Disease Treatments

With the appropriate forms of treatment, eradicating Lyme Disease is certainly possible, and patients can expect to recover rapidly.

While antibiotic treatment is the most common form of treatment, other treatments include:

  • Antibiotic treatments – Up to 8 weeks of treatment typically provided
  • IV nutritional therapy – Vitamins and minerals are delivered intravenously and directly to the cells, to aid in repair and healing.
  • Bioenergetics therapy – The body and mind are unified in this therapeutic form of treatment.
  • Detoxification therapy – The body is encouraged to heal by removing the toxins that have built up in the body’s system.
  • Biophotonic therapy – Ultraviolet light is exposed to the body to kill of bacteria/viruses and promote a more balanced immune system.

Some Of The Most Common Symptoms Of Lyme Disease Include:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Numbness
  • Muscle pain
  • Palpitations
  • Memory problems
  • Loss of facial muscle tone
  • Tingling
  • Stiff neck
  • Weakness
  • Swollen joints

The International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society

ILADS was founded as a need to promote awareness and garner support for those who suffer from Lyme disease and co-infections, not only amongst the greater community, but for doctors as well. The problem with the overall perception of how to treat Lyme disease is that the problem only lasts for several weeks, can easily be treated, and does not lead to a chronic problem. At Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine, we know that this simply is not true.

Many factors can impact how far along the disease has progressed as well as how the patient will respond to certain treatments. That said, even with a course of antibiotics to address the symptoms, if a patient shows no signs of improvement, then it may be necessary to rethink the treatment options that go beyond antibiotics, though not necessarily abandoning them.

ILADS reaches out to a network of physicians to assist with diagnosing, finding the appropriate scientific research and literature, and begin a round of treatment. The ILADs guidelines for treatments was included in the National Guidelines Clearing House, which can be found at the following links: ILADS and National Quality Measures Clearing House. This is a distinguished achievement that demonstrates our team’s continued practice and dedication to helping patients overcome Lyme disease.

From Our Previous Patients

  • The technicians made me feel so comfortable.

    “I wanted to let you know that I had a really good experience with the whole process of scheduling the thermos and with the test itself. I always god a callback whenever I left a message lll and they were always so professional and friendly. The staff was flexible with working to meet my scheduling needs. They sent me all of the paperwork and prep instructsion ahead of time. They also were patient with waiting for the script from my doctor’s office the day of. And what a great experience the Thermo was in contrast to Mammos I’ve had in the past. The technicians explained everything very well, made me feel comfortable, and even played music while I was adjusting to the room temperature. The test went so smoothly, and I am relieved to have the results back so quickly. It all just reinforced my decision to opt for a Thermo rather than a Memmo.”

  • I can now truly feel like the healing has begun!

    “I wanted to let you know that I am enjoying the Brain Advantage Program tremendously but it was not very enjoyable on Day One of the Program! This is just an FYI in case you have any of my relatives or close friends take the Brain Advantage Course and have similar results (which I hope they do not!)* During the first 30 minutes of the Brain Advantage Program I started hearing a tremendous amount of negative self talk, negative images and negative childhood thoughts. My mind started putting out messages like: “You stupid idiot, you can’t do anything right.” “No one wants to look at you or be with you.” “You can’t do it.” “You are so f____ed up!” I wanted to be invisible because each thought, fueled my low self-esteem and made me want to walk out your door and not come back. In fact, after I left and drove back to my hotel, I called my husband and spoke to him in an angry tone. I told him that “I was going to come back home to Overland Park, Kansas and that I didn’t want to be here at ACAM.” In fact I said, “I wasn’t going to even get my things from the hotel room, I was just going to leave all my stuff in the hotel and fly back home.” “I wasn’t going to return your calls because I didn’t like being here…..” The emotional pain was too much. But, MANY HOURS AND MANY TEARS LATER, I realized that these were most likely past tapes or childhood messages that I had heard in the past and they were not occurring right now at this moment. But boy, they felt like they were in the here and now. Somehow, later, by the grace of God, I returned to ACAM the next morning and Dr. Reese had me talk to a former client Martina, who had gone through some similar problems ….. So, after talking to Martina, then Stephanie and Chris, and then, in more serious depth to Dr. Steven Swerdfeger…. I was able to resolve and make sense of some of these EMOTIONS being stirred in my mind via The Brain Advantage Program.* And it is a good thing that all of this happened because I can now truly feel like the healing has begun (and the ADD is being solved.)* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • Definitely a game changer!

    “I just wanted to take a moment to email you to say thank you for your very detailed testing and even considering Lyme as a possible suspect to my ailments.* Had I not gone to see you I would have never even thought of Lyme as a reason for my weakness on my right arm and leg.* In your recommendations you had stated you wanted me to possibly get checked for Lyme and I asked and asked and not one insurance doctor would do the test.* Everyone said that there was no reason to check. Well, we moved to Virginia at the end of November and finally about three weeks ago the neurologist that I went to see for my migraines here tested me for Lyme. The results came back equivocal (1.10 on Elisa) and she simply stated that they found antibodies in my blood. And she started me on Doxycycline (100mg 2x day) for 21 days. I don’t know much about Lyme but will be seeing an infectious disease doctor on Wednesday. In the meantime, we had our newborn (born 1/21/13) tested with the Western blot and another test and per the pediatrician the results were negative. We will continue praying that he will not be affected. … Thank you very much for being that little guiding light that led us in the right direction.* Once again Dr.Grout, continue to do what you do.* You were definitely a game changer for sure.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment. Each individual is unique and may respond differently to our medical services, meaning results may vary for each person.”

  • Doctors that listen and care!

    “I am a chronic Lyme patient and on a very long road to recovery. I have seen many doctors. I can't count the times I have felt like I was on the clock or get my 15 minutes of attention and then pushed out the door. At ACAM I never feel that way, for the first time I feel hope, understanding and compassion from Dr. Grout and her amazing staff!”
