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.

  • 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.”

    “Dr. Grout tested me for sensitivity to certain foods.* After deleting those offending foods from my diet, and following a healthy diet my health has improved dramatically.* Thank you Dr. Grout, and thanks also to a friendly and caring staff!* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

    “Hello Dr. Grout! Hope all is well there AZCAM. I think about you all often. I'm happy to say that I'm doing very well, and will schedule another phone consultation when, and if, I have questions or have something to report regarding my health. I'm so thankful that I'm doing well (including gaining some weight & muscle back), and thank you again for making the treatment for Lyme available!* It's been a Godsend for me!!! *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • My life changed when I began treatment at the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine.

    “I have suffered with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) and Diabetes Type 2 for a number of years. As the MCS progressively worsened over the years, I was basically confined to my home. Certain activities of daily living became impossible or extremely difficult for me to do; shopping, pumping gas, traveling, attending religious services. I began to socialize less and less with friends and family, due to their homes or they themselves not being environmentally friendly. Their laundry detergent, perfumes, or deodorant would cause me to become very ill. My diabetes was also out of control, even with traditional prescription drugs including insulin. My life changed when I began treatment at the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine.* My diabetes is finally stable with the correct diet, supplements, and exercise regimen.* My MCS no longer has complete control over my life.* I still avoid chemical exposure as much as possible but with supplements and a personal air purifier I am now able to be more independent and enjoy a social life once again.* My quality of life has significantly improved only after 2 months of treatment!* I cannot thank them enough!* *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.”

  • Thankful!

    “I have a special reason this year [2012] to be grateful: today, the day before Thanksgiving, is my 12th birthday since the doctors told me in 2001 that I would most likely not celebrate another one. At the time of my diagnosis, giving thanks was the farthest thing from my mind. But I know now that I had every reason to be grateful.* My very advanced diagnosis let me decide that, if I was going to die, I would do so with as much grace, dignity, and quality of life as I could manage.* That meant I would make the decision to take the road less traveled and refuse the ‘standard of care’: surgery, high-dose chemo and radiation. It meant that I would look for things to clean and strengthen my body and immune system, that I would find ways to grow spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically. The nine years prior to 2001, when I was dealing with chronic disease, gave me the tools to create my own healing platform. This healing platform of integrated tools and anti-cancer strategies kept me alive until I found IPT Targeted Low-Dose chemotherapy in 2002 and allowed me to literally watch the cancer leave my body.* Ultimately, it all meant that I would change my focus on life from what I could get from it to what I could give to it.* Best Answer for Cancer Foundation (BAFC) is the pathway that allows me to give back. I’m so thankful for the assistance and guidance that has helped make BAFC a thriving reality. I’m so grateful to the physician members of BAFC: to the doctors who have treated so many cancer patients, myself included. These wonderful physicians give selflessly of their time, their talent and – many times – of their own income to help people in need. They are truly incredible people, and I am honored to know them and call them my friends.* Every day, in every way, I am humbled by and thankful for the patients who come to us, who give us the chance to help them, who have the courage to walk the road less traveled of alternative and integrative medicine. They also remind me of the most powerful healing opportunity of my life and the wonderful road that resulted from it.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.
