A Different Approach To Treating Lyme Disease

If you have ever researched Lyme disease, you have most likely discovered the controversy surrounding it. Dr. Dane at Carolina Brain Center believes this is due to disagreements amongst the medical community on what is considered “chronic Lyme disease.” Not every doctor thinks it is an actual condition, so Dr. Dane took it upon herself to ensure she and her staff treat patients suffering from brain disorders related to undiagnosed chronic Lyme disease.

Dr. Dane approaches her Lyme disease treatment using functional neurology, which she calls “exercise for the brain.” If you require Lyme disease treatment in Raleigh, NC, read more about our perspective on the condition and how we will treat you.

What is Lyme Disease?

The CDC states that Lyme disease is caused by a tick that is carrying the bacterium Borrelia burgdoferi. When this tick bites you, the bacterium is transferred to you, thus causing the disease. Research has shown that this particular bacterium does not share similarities with other bacterial pathogens. Because of this, Dr. Dane believes antibiotics are not the right course for treatment.

What is Chronic Lyme Disease?

When it comes to Chronic Lyme disease in Raleigh, NC, the subject is often full of controversy. Since the medical community is so skeptical about CLD, it can take years for a patient to be diagnosed. Even if a patient does come across a doctor willing to test and treat them, those doctors still tend to frown upon long-term antibiotic treatment.

The bacterium that causes Lyme disease is a spirochete, which means the organism is spiral. Knowing that spirochetes can cause nerve damage, Dr. Dane then asked, “Can Lyme disease lead to brain disorders?” The answer is yes. There has been some research that links a connection between Lyme disease and psychiatric conditions such as Parkinson’s, Autism, and Dementia. 

Our Approach to Lyme Disease Treatment

At Carolina Brain Center, we conduct two tests for Lyme disease: a urine test called DNA Connexions and a saliva test called MacTech Imaging. The purpose of the DNA Connexions test is to identify any co-infections that are similar to Lyme disease. MacTech Imaging then informs the doctor of a patient’s overall microbial count. By using these two tests, Dr. Dane can confidently proceed with an effective treatment plan.

In 2017, Dr. Dane learned of a new treatment for Lyme disease in Raleigh, NC, that was not antibiotic or herbal. This treatment is a mineral compound in liquid form that can be transformed into a gas and nebulized – acting as a fumigator for the body. Though she was skeptical, she tracked the results of eight patients – seven of which were clear of Lyme disease after just over a year. 

This mineral, called Lyme-N, is controversial. Still, in Dr. Dane’s eyes, it has produced the most effective results in her patients. Carolina Brain Center builds our treatment based upon functional neurology, and we do all in our power to promote healing and the easing of symptoms in every patient who visits us.
