Lyme Disease & Our Treatment Approach

Jul 01, 2022 12:00AM ● By Susan Rohr
Susan Rohr, Owner/Ondamed Practitioner of Brookfield Health& Wellness, LLC began healing herself from Lyme with bioenergetic modalities and found success in her wellness journey. She founded Brookfield Health & Wellness to bring that remarkable healing technology to others struggling with seemingly insurmountable illness. Through the many healing modalities at BHW, we have been able to help hundreds of Lyme patients regain their health, their lives and look forward to a brighter future.

While it was once thought that Lyme was only transmitted by ticks, researchers have found that mosquitoes, fleas and other insects can also transmit Lyme and its co-infections, which ultimately means Lyme is probably a lot more widespread than even the increased numbers of documented cases over the last several years have shown.

The primary bacterium causing Lyme is called Borrelia burgdorferi, but Lyme symptoms are also associated with the parasite Babesia and another co-infection called Bartonella.

Babesia and Bartonella are two of the most common co-infections of Lyme, but Lyme is also often accompanied by parasites, mold, candida and other nasties we don’t want hanging around in the body. At BHW we take a multi-faceted, whole body approach to addressing Lyme and healing the whole patient.

When Lyme patients begin treatment at our clinic, patients will first see Rohr to be evaluated and treated with the Ondamed, QI-5 Body Scan and NuVision systems. This comprehensive assessment allows her to build a customized treatment plan to address the root cause of symptoms and cater to specific, individual treatments.

Additional treatments such as electromedicine (Rife), ionic footbath,  HOCATT, laser therapy, frequency specific microcurrent (FSM), photon genius or FLOWpresso may also be recommended for patients. As treatment progresses, Rohr often recommends IASIS microcurrent neurofeedback for Lyme patients.

Treatment with neurofeedback completely unlocks a new level of healing for Lyme patients and allows previous treatments to be even more effective. When the brain gets “unstuck” from the patterns of illness and gets on board with healing, suddenly it is communicating better with the body, and the whole system functions as it was meant to.

Chiropractic adjustments help keep the body in alignment to continue flushing out toxins and keep the body’s energy moving. Dr. Zach Kienol uses a very sensitive approach to Lyme patients who can only tolerate small adjustments. He has found these minor adjustments to be very helpful for those with Lyme, especially in combination with neurofeedback.

While it would be handy to have a proven, one-size fits all approach to Lyme treatment, that is just not the way the body works. Each and every patient has a different combination of root causes that contribute to their symptoms, from the Lyme bacterium itself to a patient’s mental and emotional state. When you arrive at Brookfield Health and Wellness, we assess and treat the whole body, mind and spirit to get you back on the road to health.
