Lyme Disease and Chinese Medicine
May 23, 2016
Hosted by Dr. Rebecca Risk
Options for treating Chronic Lyme Disease without using antibiotics can be confusing, and sometimes feel limited. There is an overload of information for those who are also suffering from cognitive impairment and cannot think clearly. This episode is focusing on Chinese Medicine for the treatment of this debilitating chronic illness. Dr. Heiner Fruehauf has founded the company Classical Pearls, making several products to help treat the emerging illness. When treating chronic infections like Lyme Disease, Chinese Medical doctors are trained to treat the whole person, not just the disease. Taking into consideration each patient’s specific needs and using Chinese Medicine Theory, Dr. Fruehauf treats Chronic Lyme Disease in a gentle way, using specific herbs for each person. This is the last of four episodes in May for Lyme awareness month.
