Traditionally, Lyme is defined as an infectious illness caused by the
spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi. Spirochetes are actually tiny forms of
spiral-shaped bacteria. While this is certainly technically correct, clinically the illness
often is much more than that, especially in the disseminated and
Instead, this includes infection not only with B. Burgdorferi, but many
co-infections that may also be involved.
Furthermore, in the chronic form of Lyme, other factors can take on an
ever more significant role: immune dysfunction, opportunistic
infections, co-infections, biological toxins, metabolic and hormonal
In general, you can think of Lyme as having three categories: acute,
early disseminated and chronic. The sooner the treatment is begun

Bob Schultz: Hi, I’m Bob Schultz. I’m here at Reno Integrative undergoing cancer treatment. When my oncologist told me that there was nothing he could do unless it was chemo, and Pat my wife, and I refused to do chemo. We started to look at alternatives, opportunities, and clinics and our doctor who’s an osteopath recommended two or three of them…..If you would like to hear more about Bob’s journey, use the link below:
I’m Nan Monk and I’m 70 years old, I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in March of 2022. It was a shock, I thought I was pretty healthy so I wasn’t expecting breast cancer to come at my age. I didn’t really know what to do in the beginning, which path I was going to walk down. But after I talked to my oncologist where I’m from, and he gave me the prognosis and the method of treatment they were going to use for my kind of cancer, I immediately thought, that’s not me. I’m going to have to find another way through this. For me, I was looking for more of a higher quality of life through the process…..If you would like to hear more about Nan’s journey, please use the link below to watch her entire review.
My name is Mark, I was diagnosed about June of 2022 with prostate cancer. Coming from a background with both of my parents having passed on from cancer years and years ago, was very traumatic and a horrible experience. So, when I was diagnosed, it put me in a very hard place. Once you find out what standard medicine wants you to do, and you research that, it’s very depressing, doesn’t feel like a lot of hope. We know of a gentleman who came here to Integrative Medicine (Reno Integrative Health and Wellness) he had a very short time that they (Oncologist) told him to live, he made it 7 years while doing alternative medicine. Not wanting to go through the harshness of standard medicine, looking for an alternative and knowing that he had lived 7 years doing this, with some quality of life and still has quality of life. This gives a person a little bit of hope. Something to do that wasn’t going to be as harmful and being very scared looking for an alternative. With making the decision to come here, was a leap of faith…….If you would like to hear more about Mark’s journey, please use the link below to watch his entire review.
