Bacteria, virus, fungi, and parasites are ever-present in our modern lives. Much
as we have experienced environmental impacts to our health over time, these microorganisms
have also changed as a result of the changing environment. And while we have become
weaker because of these changes, many microorganisms have become stronger and more
pathogenic. In the perspective of conventional medicine, there is little we can
do to prevent infections besides avoiding those who are ill and washing our hands
frequently, and treatment of infections relies heavily on the use of antibiotics,
anti virals, and other anti microbial medicines to kill or manage acute and chronic
infections. From the Biological Medicine perspective, infectious diseases are almost
always the result of an imbalance in intestinal flora and a weakened immune system.
At Paracelsus, we start by examining your intestinal flora (the microorganisms that
live in our small and large intestines, which make up approximately 70% of our immune
system). We work with your body to eliminate "bad" bacteria and to restore "good"
bacteria. After that, we use a variety of therapies and treatments including hyperthermia,
infrared sauna, and homeopathy to help boost the activity of the immune system.
Once your intestinal flora and immune system are healed, your body can rely on its
natural defenses to fight the agents that cause infectious diseases and recurring
Lyme Disease – Conventional medicine views Lyme disease as a chronic infection
with symptoms that must be managed using a host of powerful antibiotics to kill
the bacteria responsible for the infection, and many other medications to control
the symptoms of the disease and the side effects of using antibiotics. One of the
adverse issues associated with antibiotic use is that the medication cannot recognize
the difference between your normal, healthy gut flora and the pathogenic bacteria
you are trying to eliminate. As a result, people trying to recover from Lyme disease
frequently suffer secondary infections as the antibiotics that kill the pathogen
also weaken their intestinal flora and natural defenses. At Paracelsus, our treatment
of Lyme disease involves boosting the intestinal flora and immune system to naturally
fight this infection. For more information on our Lyme disease treatment, click here.
