Treatment for Lyme Disease

It's important to note that during the treatment of Lyme Disease, some patients may feel worse before they start feeling better. This is because the body is detoxifying, and the immune system is working hard to fight off the infection. By working with Dr. Risk, patients can feel content in knowing that they are in the hands of someone who knows firsthand how difficult working with Lyme disease can be, and that their treatment is tailored to them and their individual situation.

How does Ananta Health treat Lyme Disease?

Treatment for Lyme Disease can be complicated and should be individualized, as each case is unique and requires a specific approach. Conventional medicine often ignores the disease or does not offer adequate treatment options, leaving many patients in pain and with a poor quality of life.

At Ananta Health, we focus on the use of anti-microbial herbs, Chinese Medicine and supplements to address the infection and its complications. The treatment process begins with a comprehensive assessment of the patient's history and symptoms, and biofeedback testing with the BioScan SRT. Dr. Risk takes a personalized approach to treatment, ensuring that each patient's specific needs are addressed and that they have a full understanding of their assessment and recommended treatment. 

What if I can't come into the clinic?

Distant treatment is a great option for individuals who live outside of Calgary or who are unable to travel for an in-person consultation. At Ananta Health, we understand that Lyme Disease can be a debilitating illness and that travel may not be possible for some patients; this could include people who have mobility issues, are bedridden, or unable to leave their homes due to the severity of their illness. We offer distant treatment options to ensure that everyone has access to the care they need, regardless of their location or condition.

Our remote treatment program includes phone consultations with Dr. Risk, where she will assess your symptoms, medical history, and develop a personalized treatment plan for you. We use a combination of biofeedback testing with BioScan SRT, analyzing symptoms, and taking each case on an individual basis. This allows us to tailor our treatment to the specific needs of each patient and achieve the best possible outcome.

How can acupuncture help treat Lyme Disease?

Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with other treatments to help manage the symptoms of Lyme Disease. Acupuncture can help to reduce anxiety and stress, improve sleep, alleviate digestive complaints, and aid in the body's natural detoxification process. Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points on the body, known as acupoints, using thin needles. This stimulation can help to regulate the body's natural healing response, improve circulation, and reduce inflammation. Acupuncture can also help to relieve pain and improve overall well-being. Many patients with Lyme disease may experience chronic pain, fatigue, and other symptoms that can greatly impact their quality of life.  Additionally, it can help to strengthen the immune system, allowing the body to better fight off the infection.
