Lyme Disease / PANS & PANDAS
Chronic infections are very common in our society and often get overlooked or ignored by the traditional medical community as causes of disease and dysfunction. This leaves adults and children in a state of prolonged suffering relying on a variety of medications that at best cover up symptoms and allow the disease to progress. At GrassRoots Functional Medicine, we look at the big picture and leave no stone unturned.
We use state of the art testing to identify exactly what bug or bugs are contributing to the bodies toxic burden, and prioritize holistic and effective treatment modalities that will strengthen the immune system returning the body to the state of wellness it once new.
At GrassRoots we believe the key to recovering from chronic infections lies in an aggressive, comprehensive, whole body approach that prioritizes strengthening the immune system as opposed to simply blasting a bug.
For Lyme Disease, co-infections, and PANS & PANDAS our treatment approach is very similar. Establish a strong foundation, then implement an individualized treatment plan that reduces the infection so the immune system can regain control and maintain balance for years to come.
Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector-borne, infectious disease in the United States with affecting over 300,000 new people each year. Lyme disease and its co-infections mimic over 300 other diseases, fooling doctors into treating patients for: Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Lupus, Anxiety, Gastro diseases, Psychological illnesses, and many other diagnoses.
Approximately 500,000 children are diagnosed with OCD in U.S. Approximately 138,000 children are diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome in the U.S. 1.5 million+ children were diagnosed with serious anxiety/phobia/OCD/bipolar in a given year (1994-2011). Leading experts in PANS/PANDAS believe that at least 25% of these children are misdiagnosed and suffering from PANS or PANDAS, conditions for which there are have effective root-cause treatment options for.
At GrassRoots we don’t believe in treating a diagnosis, we believe in treating the cause. For chronic infections and inflammatory conditions like PANS/PANDAS we use a combination of holistic and conventional methods to treat the cause of the disease so results are real and results are lasting.
So many children and adults are suffering needlessly tricked into the idea that there are no alternative options. At GrassRoots we know this is not the case. We help people every single day overcome health conditions like Lyme Disease, co-infections, PANS & PANDAS. There is always a cause. The key success is partnering with the right person to help you uncover exactly what that cause is.
