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

  • I wanted to let people know that the AZ Center for Advanced Medicine is certainly worth a call!

    “In 2011 I realized that it was time to do something about my memory. I knew I needed the right kind of help, the right doctor. On www.acam.org I chose 3 possible naturalistic doctors and showed the names to my integrative doctor who was retiring. Then, I showed the names to my highly respected dentist as well. Both immediately said, “If you can get Martha Grout, she’s the one!” I called her office and learned that I could have a no-charge 15 minute telephone conversation with her to get my questions answered. I made an appointment to start testing and treatment.* Dr. Grout tested me and the test results showed 7 or 8 metals in the danger zone. My mother had died of Alzheimer’s disease when she was 74 years old. I wanted to live much longer than that! Chelation was the answer to reduce the dangerously high levels of deadly metals.* After a series of chelation, with tests taken at intervals to evaluate how I was progressing, my memory, and the tension I was feeling about it, is greatly improved.* AND, another possible effect of metal toxicity, the awful muscle, ligament, and joint pain I had been suffering from for so long has also been greatly diminished in the past few months.* Now, at 72 yrs. old, I am riding my bike 7 – 8 miles up and down hills, hiking and doing gardening…all without pain.* Oh, I may get some of the natural stiffness if I overdo after missing several days of exercise; this is normal to anyone. But the pain used to follow the slightest work/exercise.* Dr. Grout said that I lack certain enzymes which has caused the build-up of heavy metals. I take some supplements for my digestion and I will soon be on a reduced, maintenance chelation schedule to maintain my health.* I also chose to have sensitivity testing and learned that I needed to avoid dairy and wheat, which has improved how I feel.* Another benefit of all this has been the marvelous, kind, caring doctors, nurses, patients, everyone at AZ Center for Advanced Medicine.* I always look forward to being there. I have made new friends.* We share our stories and what we’ve learned. Dr. Grout and staff answer our questions and care about each and every patient. It’s an uplifting atmosphere.* I wanted to let people know that the AZ Center for Advanced Medicine is certainly worth a call,* and/or a visit to learn what can be done about any health problem you’re having. I’m so glad that I found this place.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • I'm So Thankful That I'm Doing Well!

    “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.

  • Thank you Dr. Grout, and thanks also to a friendly and caring staff!

    “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.

  • 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.

  • 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!”
