Lyme Disease

Treatment for Lymes Disease needs to focus on
the infection
the resulting systemic inflammation
and the multi-system immune dysfunction that results

We sat down with Dr Bier to ask him about his interest and approach with patients working with a Chronic Lyme disease diagnosis.

Dr Bier's experience with treating Lyme Disease encompasses patients with long-term chronic Lyme manifesting in any of the classic symptoms, including systemic, musculoskeletal, gastro-intestinal and neurological manifestations.
Understanding the multi-system nature of Lyme infection, the major goals of treatment are –
  • Eradicate pathogens
  • Boost immunity
  • Support affected organs/ systems
  • Provide symptom relief

Some of the multiple areas that need to be addressed include:

  • Primary infection
  • Co-infections – erlichia, bartonella, babesia etc
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • General detoxification
  • Immune dysfunction
  • Systemic inflammation and pain
