The nervous system carries information to and from the brain and spinal cord to other parts of the body via a complex network of nerves and cells. When this system gets disrupted, nervous system disorders consequently can develop. Examples of neurological disorders are Chronic Persistent Lyme Disease, ALS, MS, Parkinson’s Disease, Fibromyalgia, brain fog, Chronic Fatigue, Nerve Pain, Dystonia, tremors, seizures, paralysis and more.
At Ananta Health we look closely at our patients to assess the root cause of their nervous system dysfunction. Since many nervous system disorders can be falsely diagnosed and have a close link to Lyme Disease1,2, we will always perform testing to rule the infection in or out of the treatment plan. From there we will also perform BioMeridian testing to assess if the patient is affected by heavy metals, mold toxicity or anything else that can be causing a burden on the body.
The treatment plan for each patient is individualized and will be based on clinical findings and patient needs. We often use a combination of Chinese herbs, supplements, and other treatments that may be needed. At Ananta Health, we believe in gentle yet effective treatment. A long journey is essential in order for nervous system disorders to heal itself.
