Lyme Disease

Patient Improvements
Have Included

Many Lyme patients unfortunately will suffer for a long period of time before they receive a correct diagnosis. Many times they are misdiagnosed and prescribed incorrect medications and very often are medically mistreated. Even when a correct diagnosis is reached, few are fortunate enough to find an effective treatment for this debilitating disease along with all of the coinfections and other symptoms

After the Life-Changing treatments with Poseidonia Healthcare, all of our patients have varying degrees of improvement from good to resolved and patients report a general and extremely positive improvement to their overall health, they have an increased quality of sleep also with a reduction or elimination in Night Sweats, very quickly many report a huge lifting of brain fog issues with much better mental memory retention levels, they also report a drastic reduction, and in many cases, total elimination of painful symptoms. There is very often exceptionally good improvements in vision/light/mould sensitivities.

On the clinical side, improvements have been observed in such parameters as; muscle tone, gait, balance and physical exertion. Improved abdominal functions, reduction in joint swelling as well as improvements to their often experienced heart palpitation issues.

On the clınıcal sıde improvements have been observed in such parameters as muscle tone, gait, balance and physical exertıon.

Most of the Lyme Disease Patients treated with the combination of Pluripotent Stem Cells and supportive therapies (including hyperbaric oxygen chamber, Cryotherapy, Ozone therapy, Bioresonance, Detoxing and IV Vitamin therapy), showed visible signs of improvement in the following areas:

General improvement of health
Increases sleep quality
Reduction in pain
Inhibits bacteria growth

Acute and Chronic Lyme Disease
treatment is our Specialty

We have been successfully treating Lyme Disease and Co-infections for many years and it has become the treatment we are renowned all over the world.  Our approach to addressing Lyme Disease is simple, we give your body a range of comprehensive treatments to help heal and boost your immune system while ridding the body of the bacteria associated with Lyme Disease.

The treatments we offer include Ozone Therapy which kills pathogens, HBOT which helps restore your bodies natural functions and Stem Cell Therapy which repairs the damage Lyme Disease caused. Creating and combining these therapies with a comprehensive Detox Program, your health can be restored over our six week Lyme Disease protocol.  All the treatment protocols have been highly effective as individual Lyme Disease treatments for many years,  however, we are the only treatment clinic in Europe that combines all of these therapies under one roof, and this is a huge benefit for maximising your positive results.

Ozone Therapy has a 30-minute half time/M factor (gas tension strength decreases exponentially 50% every 30 minutes), so doing anything after that length of time diminishes the effects greatly as the ozone is no longer fully active.

Using HBOT with correct PPO2 (Partial Pressures of Oxygen) will allow oxygen and Ozone to reach the furthest extremities of the body, literally everywhere which is why HBOT is an ideal adjunct therapy with anything else that is being put into the bloodstream. It is the elevated pressure of being at 2.4 ata during a 60-90-minute treatment that will push the Oxygen & Ozone into the plasma and to all the areas where the Lyme Disease spirochete are hiding.

Our Lyme disease treatment allows patients to be pressurised in the Hyperbaric Chamber whilst the Ozone is still very active in their system. When both treatments are used in conjunction, this is a phenomenal advantage over other approaches.

We are the only facility in Cyprus able to administer Ozone and put you in the chamber to 14 meters treatment depth whilst the ozone is still active, as we have the equipment in the same location.

The popularity of Stem Cell Therapy for Lyme Disease is ever increasing due to the improvement in the quality of life it offers people suffering from Chronic Lyme Disease. One’s health can be significantly impacted by organ and system damage caused by Lyme Disease and its Co-Infections, this is why finding healthy solutions to overcome the negative symptoms of Lyme is such a high priority for our patients.

Lyme Disease Overview

Many people with early stage Lyme disease develop a distinctive circular rash at the site of the tick bite, usually around 3 to 30 days after being bitten. This is known as erythema migrans. The rash is often described as looking like a bull’s- eye on a dart board.

Lyme Disease, also known as Lyme borreliosis and its many Co-Infections are caused by the Borrelia Burgdorferi Bacteria which is spread to humans from the bite of an infected tick. Symptoms start to show anywhere from 3 days to 4 weeks following the bite. The early stage symptoms of Lyme disease are very much Flu like and include:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Headache
  • Muscle Pain
  • Joint Pain
  • Swollen Lymph Nodes
  • Fatigue

In the case where correct treatment is not sought quickly, symptoms can progress rapidly and often uncontrollably and tend to include:

  • Severe Headache
  • Rashes across the body
  • Arthritic Pain
  • Irregular Heartbeat and Heart Palpitations
  • Inflammation of the Brain and / or Spinal Cord
  • Tingling and Numbness in the hands or feet
  • Neuropathic Disorders and Brain Fog

Lyme disease is caused by four main species of bacteria. Borrelia Burgdorferi and Borrelia Mayonii cause Lyme disease in the United States, while Borrelia Afzelii and Borrelia Garinii are the leading causes in Europe and Asia. The most common tick-borne illness in these regions, Lyme disease is transmitted by the bite of an infected black-legged tick, commonly known as a deer tick.

You’re more likely to get Lyme disease if you live or spend time in grassy and heavily wooded areas where ticks carrying Lyme disease thrive. It’s important to take common-sense precautions in tick-infested areas.

Symptoms Of Lyme Disease

The signs and symptoms of Lyme disease vary. They usually appear in stages, but the stages can overlap.

In the early stages of lyme’s disease a small, red bump, similar to the bump of a mosquito bite, often appears at the site of a tick bite or tick removal and resolves over a few days. This normal occurrence doesn’t indicate Lyme disease.

However, these signs and symptoms can occur within a month after you’ve been infected:

Rash. From three to 30 days after an infected tick bite, an expanding red area might appear that sometimes clears in the centre, forming a bulls-eye pattern. The rash (erythema migrans) expands slowly over days and can spread to 12 inches (30 centimetres) across. It’s typically not itchy or painful but might feel warm to the touch. Erythema migrans is one of the hallmarks of Lyme disease, although not everyone with Lyme disease develops the rash. Some people develop this rash at more than one place on their bodies.

Other symptoms. Fever, chills, fatigue, body aches, headache, neck stiffness and swollen lymph nodes can accompany the rash.

Later signs and symptoms of Lyme’s Disease infection might appear in the following weeks to months. These include:

Erythema migrans. The rash may appear on other areas of your body.

Joint pain. Bouts of severe joint pain and swelling are especially likely to affect your knees, but the pain can shift from one joint to another.

Neurological problems. Weeks, months or even years after infection, you might develop inflammation of the membranes surrounding your brain (meningitis), temporary paralysis of one side of your face (Bell’s palsy), numbness or weakness in your limbs, and impaired muscle movement.

Less common symptoms of Lyme Disease

Several weeks after infection, some people may develop:

  • Heart problems, such as an irregular heartbeat
  • Eye inflammation
  • Liver inflammation (hepatitis)
  • Severe fatigue

Treatment Breakthrough for Lyme Disease in 2020 1

If you’ve been bitten by a tick and have symptoms

Only a minority of tick bites leads to Lyme Disease. The longer the tick remains attached to your skin, the greater your risk of getting the disease. Lyme infection is unlikely if the tick is attached for less than 36 to 48 hours.

If you think you’ve been bitten and have signs and symptoms of Lyme Disease, particularly if you live in an area where Lyme Disease is prevalent, please Contact Us. Treatment for Lyme Disease is more effective if begun early.

See a doctor even if symptoms disappear

Consult your doctor even if signs and symptoms disappear, the absence of symptoms doesn’t mean the disease is gone. Untreated, Lyme Disease can spread to other parts of your body for several months to years after infection, causing Arthritis and nervous system problems. Ticks can also transmit other illnesses, such as babesiosis and Colorado tick fever.

Causes Of Lyme Disease

In the United States, Lyme disease is caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia mayonii, carried primarily by black-legged or deer ticks. Young brown ticks often are no bigger than a poppy seed, which can make them nearly impossible to spot.

To contract Lyme disease, an infected tick must bite you. The bacteria enter your skin through the bite and eventually make their way into your bloodstream.

In most cases, to transmit Lyme Disease, a tick must be attached for 36 to 48 hours. If you find an attached tick that looks swollen, it may have fed long enough to transmit bacteria. Removing the tick as soon as possible might prevent infection.

Where you live or vacation can affect your chances of getting Lyme Disease. So can your profession and the outdoor activities you enjoy. The most common risk factors for Lyme Disease include:

  • Spending time in wooded or grassy areas. In the United States, deer ticks are found mostly in the heavily wooded areas of the Northeast and Midwest. Children who spend a lot of time outdoors in these regions are especially at risk. Adults with outdoor occupations also are at increased risk.
  • Having exposed skin. Ticks attach easily to bare flesh. If you’re in an area where ticks are common, protect yourself and your children by wearing long sleeves and long pants. Don’t allow your pets to wander in tall weeds and grasses.
  • Not removing ticks promptly or properly. Bacteria from a tick bite can enter your bloodstream if the tick stays attached to your skin for 36 to 48 hours or longer. If you remove a tick within two days, your risk of acquiring Lyme Disease is low.

Individuals affected by “Chronic Lyme Disease,” or “Post-treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome” are facing three main concerns:

  • A chronic infection very likely due to either cystic encapsulation of the initial pathogen or its growth in the form of biofilms which cannot be treated with antibiotics.
  • Accumulation of toxins due to a compromised immune system and the regular use of antibiotics, antidepressants and other drugs.
  • A slow degradation of the body functions leading to Arthritis, Heart problems and neurological problems affecting the brain and the nervous system.

An efficient way to help restore the quality of life of these individuals is to address these three aspects of the disease in parallel, using our state of the art detoxification protocols along with stem cell treatment.

The recommended protocol requires a minimum of 4 weeks of presence at one of the affiliated practitioner’s clinic. It may be adapted depending on the initial assessment of the infection and toxin levels performed at the beginning of the treatment.

Treatment For Lyme Disease

Here at Poseidonia Healthcare, we offer a full range of treatments for Lyme Disease which include Stem Cell therapy, Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy and Ozone therapy.

Treatment For Lyme Disease

Here at Poseidonia Healthcare, we offer a full range of treatments for Lyme Disease, here are a few benefits of the more popular treatments:

Stem Cell Therapy

The injection of Pluripotent Stem Cells (PSC) has the immediate effect of strengthening the immune system. The first benefit from the Stem Cell Treatment is the increased capacity of the body to defend itself from the pathogen invasion.
The second level of benefit is usually observed after a minimum of 3 injections when the different organs that have been damaged by the disease start to show signs of repair. PSC is especially efficient at reversing brain neurological problems. Patients on anti-depressants were able to cease taking them when entering the 4th week after the treatment. Some showed improvements a little later but most patients show a remarkable improvement in all neurological related symptoms.
A major improvement is also observed in the joint inflammation within 4 weeks of the treatment.

HBOT

The traditional treatments for Lyme Disease are limited to basic antibiotic therapy. If caught quickly this is sometimes enough to recover, but often it is not enough. These infections are very strong and often prove resistant to many traditional therapies. Also, most often Lyme is not alone, since there are a multitude of confections that exist along with Lyme. A multi-therapeutic approach is needed to treat these infections. Addressing this condition from multiple angles is paramount to successfully healing.

One of the pros on this multi-therapeutic approach is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT).

HBOT has the capacity to play a major role in healing from Lyme for a few reasons:

  • Lyme Disease is in a classification of bacteria called anaerobes, meaning these bacteria thrive in very low oxygen environments.  HBOT, being a very high oxygen environment, has the ability to aid in the killing of the bacteria.

  • Lyme Disease causes a great deal of inflammation throughout the body affecting joints, muscles and the nervous system. One of the primary uses of HBOT in general is to help manage inflammation. The more oxygen our body can absorb, the more inflammation we can process and move out of our body.

  • Oxygen is a major nutrient our body needs to heal from damage. As a result of the infection and associated inflammation, damage can be extensive. HBOT provides exceptionally high amounts of oxygen that the body can use to heal the brain, nerves, muscles and joints.

The use of HBOT as part of the multi-therapeutic approach for Lyme is growing rapidly.  Lyme experts are coming to see the obvious benefits of including HBOT as part of their patients’ recovery from this debilitating disease.

Ozone Therapy

Medical ozone or active oxygen is an energised form of oxygen which is highly reactive but completely non-toxic to humans when administered responsibly. For those suffering from Lyme Disease, Ozone Therapy for Lyme Disease has provided an alternative treatment which is extremely low in Herxheimer reaction but still very effective.

Ozone Therapy speeds up the ability of the immune system to catch up, improves symptoms and circulation, and protects the liver. Vaccines are widely applied to prevent the occurrence of certain diseases by inducing an immune response, and thus if a patient is exposed to the same infectious agent, then an antibody response is created and infection tends to be milder or not to occur at all. It was previously thought  that vaccines were only useful for prevention. After all, if a patient had the actual infection, that patient’s immune system would theoretically be saturated with all the “antigen” or foreign material from the infectious agent, and thus a maximal immune response would already be stimulated.

It turns out however, that vaccines given during an illness can be curative also. The most likely explanation is that vaccines present infectious “antigens” in a form which is slightly different from the natural infection. A slightly different stimulation could mount a different, possibly more effective immune response. Another possibility is that different routes of administration (eg injection into the muscle) in other groups of immune tissue become active and thus immune cells can bypass blockades that might be present in the natural infection.

Ozone Therapy introduces foreign Lyme antigens from the blood (especially when combined with antibiotics that increases kill rate) into foreign sites such as the muscle and the fat, activating different immune sites. The immune stimulation is aided by inflammation from the blood now outside of the blood vessel, fats in the blood, and of course by the medical ozone.

Further, medical ozone is a potent oxidizing agent that changes the structure of the Lyme antigens by adding an oxygen molecule to them. This modifies the foreign Lyme antigen again, allowing for a slightly different and possibly more effective immune system response.

To follow the immune system, the CD57 subset of natural killer cells of the immune system can be quantified. In Lyme it is often low, with very sick patients being below 20, and average 40-60. When patients feel well, we can stop antibiotic treatment if the count is around 120.

Who Can Get
Lyme Disease?

Children aged 3 to 14 are at the greatest risk for contracting Lyme disease, due in part to being more active outdoors, with more than 200 cases per day.

The next age group most at risk is people over 50, who are also more involved in outdoor leisure activities like gardening, hiking, or playing golf.

People who work outdoors for a living, including landscapers, utility workers, and farmers have an occupational risk for a tick bite. Pets who go outdoors, like dogs and cats, may bring ticks into the house and should be checked upon entering the home.

What does Stem Cell
Lyme Disease Treatment entail?

T

he use of Stem Cell Therapy for Lyme Disease provides an effective benefit by immediately strengthening the Immune System. One of the major benefits that patients attest to following Pluripotent Stem Cell Therapy for Lyme Disease treatment is the enhanced ability of the body to protect itself from the pathogen invasion.

Other major benefits that are usually noticed following Pluripotent Stem Cell applications is the repair to organs that have experienced damage as a result of the viral infection and use of Antibiotics. Stem Cell Therapy for Lyme Disease has been shown to be very effective at also reversing neurological problems that have been experienced prior to treatment.

Many patients taking Anti-Depressants were able to stop taking these Medications during their 5th week of treatment, also in the same period many experience huge reductions in joint inflammations.
Patients generally improve at different rates but most patients display great improvements relating to all neurological-related symptoms.
