Integrative Lyme Disease Treatment
Your body accumulates toxins that can build up in your body over time and lead to poor health effects in the short and long term if left unchecked. Even if you eat right, exercise, and sleep for 8 hours a day, these toxins still exist in all of us.
The best way to get rid of this is with detoxification, which is a specialized procedure to ‘flush’ out any unwanted substances. Think of it as a regular waste disposal routine.
Your body has a very intelligent way of fighting disease. Given the right tools and conditions, all cells in the body can be detoxed and made strong again. The best part is, you can do this without surgery and toxic chemicals.
Getting Rid of Metabolic Waste
You may be surprised at the possible symptoms associated with high toxicity in the body. Did you know that toxins even trigger auto-immune responses causing inflammation and autoimmune diseases? Toxins can cause your body to a malfunction or can create dysfunction. There are many sources of toxicity, some are within our control and others aren’t.
Our modalities for detox include hyperthermia and hyperoxygenation.
Hyperthermia is the process of raising the body temperature by several degrees and thus affecting your fat cells to be moved around the body and flushed out.
Hyperoxygenation works by providing your body with a greater concentration of oxygen than is found in the air in order to promote circulation, allowing toxins to move around in your body instead of being ‘stuck’ in one part of your body. This movement forces them to be carried out by your circulatory system as waste.

Frequently Asked Questions
A medically supervised treatment program designed to purge the body of unwanted or harmful substances and used as a first step in overcoming many health conditions. It is the fastest way to rid your body of substances that are detrimental to your health.
he initial treatment is for 3 weeks, non-invasive and does not require the person to be admitted 24/7.
Many drugs, such as alcohol, opioids, prescription drugs, and nicotine.
There are many that may not feel any negative effects of detoxing, however, many will. If you are one of those, you may feel nausea, achy, fever, joint pain, and or headache.
The good news:
We’ve got ways to make it go quicker and assure die off/ waste/ junk is exiting your body efficiently. In fact, they are already built into our protocols. In addition, you can take solace in knowing the almost-flu-like feeling due to detox is generally short-term and may only last hours as opposed to the long-term residual effects of toxic treatments, which can last a lifetime. We do not shy away from the detox process and want you to know and understand its importance. For us, and for you, feeling yucky post-treatment is a great sign. This allows us to know we have affected physiology, the treatments are working and change is occurring. Among tests and imaging, the symptoms of detoxing are also a way for us to better understand how effective the treatments are. There are remedies you can incorporate at home that will allow you to manage the symptoms of detox and even feel more comfortable during the process. We can teach you about those.
Toxins can be stored in almost any place, but epigenetic research and clinical evidence are showing that the majority of toxins are stored in adipose tissue—fat. While it may be safe to assume that if you are overweight you have a lot of toxins, this does not mean you must be overweight to have toxemia. Often we see very thin or low body weight/fat individuals test incredibly high in toxicity. It can be difficult to access toxins in the adipose tissue and draw them out, but with whole-body hyperthermia and G-force, we give toxins a run for their money.
First and foremost, make sure you are drinking plenty of water on all treatment days as well as those you are not in the office. Water helps the body flush and eliminate toxic substance in the body. Secondly, you are encouraged to take a ginger and/or Epsom salt bath to help eliminate toxins through the skin, as it is our body’s largest detox organ.
We definitely have the ability to get toxins on the move; that said, we also have very effective ways of getting them out of the system quickly. With other detox methods, it is true the toxins become mobile but then become stuck or bound somewhere else. Lymphatic irrigation is key and targeting the whole body is essential.
With the doctor’s help and assessment we can determine if your “symptoms” are truly detox, typically they are nausea, achy, fever, joint pain, and or headache.
Obviously if you are working to get rid of your toxic load it would make sense to only replenish with foods that are wholesome and good. Additionally, we will incorporate a detox food regime that will help with the detox. Did you know certain foods, herbs and other things actually accelerate and assist the process making it more smooth, tolerable and effective.
In general, once the detox process has occurred and the body has moved on, individuals often describe their feeling as euphoric or “light”—they just feel good. Many of the original symptoms subside and a person can carry on better than before.
No matter who you are, where you live or what your situation is, detoxing is essential and the body’s natural elimination system. Obviously, we are in constant need of eliminating waste and unused or unnecessary products from our system. Our treatments are designed with this in mind. In fact, we find that many people have a sluggish “garbage disposal” and so have difficulty with detoxing. Sluggish bowels, skin conditions, headaches, insomnia, chest congestion, are all signs of inability to “take out the trash”. We have five main elimination organs, liver, kidneys, colon, skin and lungs. Our treatments are able to target and affect all of these areas. Whole-body hyperthermia thins the blood, and fat in the blood and tissues, allowing greater mobility and probably exit potential. G-Force literally squeezes cells by putting gravitational force on them, helping them eliminate—just like squeezing a lemon to extract juice.

What Our Patients Are Saying
"Although I was diagnosed with late-stage prostate disease, I felt there had to be a better alternative than surgery, chemotherapy and radiation — with their damaging side effects. And I wanted a treatment program that would allow me to keep the personal and professional commitments I had made, while still dedicating the necessary time to the treatments. LIFE Health Centers allowed me to do that. Their treatment protocols required a substantial time commitment, but they have left me feeling better than I had in years, not worse, and the education and support I have received from the staff are priceless. With their coaching, I am now living an active, healthy lifestyle that is the best protection against any recurrence.
"I have been suffering from Lyme Disease and a myriad of other issues for over five years. I have spent over $30,000 in search of treatments that would make a difference and get my life back. Although many of the treatments helped, I was still not 100% and not able to work full time. Finding the LIFE Health Centers was a dream come true, I am so grateful for their services and sincere desire to help each person get well."
"As Lymies know, we experience something most people are unable to grasp. Coming into Life Health Centers felt like meeting with family, which I had never felt at other clinics—it’s therapeutic. As time passed I started to see massive results neurologically, physically, and in other ways. When my father saw me for the first time since starting treatment, he began to cry. I’ve never seen him cry before, which shows how this disease and my results can break down walls and change relationships. I have seen more changes in three weeks here than in the last ten years combined. Sunshine has entered my life again.”
Orchestra of Treatment Modalities
Most of the modalities at Life Health have a history of remarkable success as solo treatments. However, when presented as concert therapy timed with precision and sequentially managed, these modalities bring about refinements in enzyme reactions that trigger cell hypoxemia and instigate a metabolic process in the body of restoring healthy cell growth. These molecular actions begin immediately once treatment starts — a serious advantage when time is of the essence.
Whole Body Hyperthermia
One of the basic ways our body fights disease naturally is to increase its core temperature through a fever. When the body’s intelligence senses cellular danger or imposition it goes to war through an inflammatory response which sends healing cells like cytokines to the affected area or throughout the entire body; causing heat, redness, and inflammation to an area (like in the case of a sliver) or fever, body aches, chills, etc. (in the case of a virus). This is a perfect way of knowing our body is doing its job and we are on the road to wellness.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF)
At the body’s molecular level, each atom contains outer electrons (valence electrons) that roughly orbit the nucleus in varying paths. An external electromagnetic pulse gives the valence electrons a shove intensifying their action which consequently enhances and improves molecular action.
By influencing the electrons’ orbital trajectory, this effect on the cells greatly increases their chemical reactions. The body can then produce more ATP that gives the necessary energy to the cell enabling the cell to function at a higher capacity.
Enzymes are essential components in your body that work to help your body heal, metabolize, provide energy to cells, and keep your brain functioning at its best. However, enzyme levels can sometimes fall, due to illness, as a symptom of another condition, or other factors.
With exercise, you are able to raise your enzyme levels to compensate for the workout, which according to many studies have the ability to cause an anti-oxidizing effect on your body, as well as improving digestion and other important bodily functions.
IV Therapy is used to deliver nutrients, minerals, and other substances directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract, which is commonly compromised with leaky gut and gut toxicity in many immunocompromised patients.
With leaky gut, even if you are eating the most healthy organic, whole foods autoimmune Paleolithic diet, or even a 100% plant-based vegan diet, you most likely are not assimilating all the nutrients. It’s a myth that everything we eat we assimilate into our cells to help us make hormones, neurotransmitters, and aid our mitochondria (the powerhouse engine of all our cells) make ATP, which is cellular energy.
Per Newton's 2nd Law of Motion, weight is defined as the function of mass times acceleration. At the apogee of a jump, a person is, for a split second, weightless. When that person lands, he/she weighs more than normal (try jumping on a set of scales to verify this).
Vertical vibration of a plate on which you stand duplicates this phenomenon many times a second. Different vibration frequencies affect different parts of the body. But all vibrations affect the lymphatic system, causing lymphatic irrigation, and all the body’s cell walls react positively to the flexing of the cell walls caused by the alternating weightlessness and increased weight.
When blood is thin and fat has changed, now is the time to move carnage and chemicals out of the body. We create this response artificially — all within natural physiological dynamics.
Cancer cells and spirochetes are anaerobes, which means they tolerate only low levels of oxygen and do not thrive in hyperoxygenated environments.
Oxygen therapy is designed to penetrate the body’s cellular pathways in a way that accelerates intra-cellular activity at levels that have not previously been possible. Diseased cells cannot live in an oxygen-rich environment.
Functional Medicine (FM) is the healthcare of the future. It is the combination we are all looking for—educating and empowering you to make lifestyle changes combined with a focus on the cause of the illness, not the symptoms.
Functional medicine is based on the search for the cause of the symptoms or disease, not merely medicating or placing a Band-Aid (medication in this case) over the symptom. Think about this, if your “check engine” light in your car comes on and you put a piece of duck tape over the signal on the dashboard, will the problem go away? Of course not. Down the road, you will pay a lofty price for ignoring the warning signs.
Interestingly enough, many of the symptoms or warning signs of disease are not always obvious or directly correlated. FM addresses this issue by looking at the body holistically—which simply means “as a whole”. We find the real cause, taking into account all extenuating and intrinsic circumstances. Considering the “whole” person, Functional Medicine also works to find homeostasis or balance between mind, body, and spirit.
Next, FM identifies just six triggers or causes of disease:
- Nutritional Deficiency
- Toxic Burden
- Congenital or Genetic (which is much less common than previously thought)
All of these contribute to the way our immune system functions, which can be up-regulated causing autoimmune responses, or down-regulated limiting our ability to fight disease.
Our Functional Medicine approach includes a plethora of testing and diagnostic options not usually offered by your conventional practitioner, as well as a nutritional-based and energetic approach to restoring cellular function in the body.
