Lyme Disease

Los Angeles functional medicine specialist, Dr. Anju Mathur, uses integrative and holistic medical modalities to help patients overcome the effects of Lyme disease.

Meet Dr. Anju Mathur

While Lyme disease can be completely eradicated if it’s caught early, many times it goes undetected, which causes adverse effects in the body. Dr. Anju Mathur’s “Back to Wellness Program” can treat several of these effects and improve the quality of life for Los Angeles patients suffering from Lyme disease.

Dr. Mathur is skilled at determining which tests to perform for each individual case and using the information gained from the patient’s medical history, test results, current lifestyle habits, and individual imbalances. Another talent that she possesses involves knowing which therapies to select for specific health problems. During Lyme disease treatment in Los Angeles with Dr. Mathur, all-inclusive approaches will be customized to suit individual needs and imbalances, and she will create and utilize protocols that reduce and treat the effects of this illness.

What causes Lyme disease?

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is caused by a tick bite. Deer ticks or blacklegged ticks are usually the culprit and spread the disease while feeding on the blood of animals and humans.

If left untreated, Lyme disease can spread to the skin, joints, heart, and nervous system, which can lead to nerve problems and arthritis. After being treated with the appropriate antibiotics, functional medicine protocols can safely and effectively resolve additional consequences of this illness.

The signs and symptoms

The first sign of Lyme disease is generally a rash that may resemble a bull’s eye, though not all infected persons have or notice it. Lyme disease can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms resemble those of the flu or other illnesses.

One of the main symptoms of Lyme disease is called erythema migrans, and it usually appears 7 to 10 days after infection. This rash occurs in around 70-80% of people, and it begins at the site of the tick bite from three to thirty days after infection. This rash gradually expands over a period of several days, and it can grow to around one foot in diameter.

Early symptoms of Lyme disease include:

  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Stiff neck
  • Skin rash

What happens when Lyme disease goes undetected?

Our Lyme disease treatment in Los Angeles consists of antibiotics. When caught early enough, most people have a full recovery without complications. If not diagnosed in the early stages, Lyme disease can lead to chronic ailments – including neurological problems, severe joint pain, heart problems, severe fatigue, eye irritation, and liver damage.

When an infection goes untreated for days or weeks, the rash or lesions can spread to any area of the body, and patients can experience a series of other symptoms.

Some of the symptoms of an advanced version of the disease may include:

  • Joint pain and swelling
  • Headaches
  • Neck stiffness
  • Meningitis
  • Heart palpitations
  • Heartbeat changes
  • Dizziness
  • Facial muscle atrophy
  • Inflammation of the spinal cord
  • Bell’s palsy (facial paralysis)
  • Shooting pains that may disrupt sleep

If patients go months or years without treatment, the most prevalent disease that can occur is arthritis. Over 60% of patients with untreated Lyme disease will experience arthritic pain in their large joints. Around 5% of people develop neurological disorders months to years after infection. Functional medicine therapies can reduce or prevent these disorders and help patients lead healthier lives.

Testing for Lyme disease

There is a two-step testing process involved when checking the blood for antibodies against the bacteria that causes Lyme disease. A procedure called an EIA is done to test enzyme levels related to the bacteria, and if this test is negative, no further testing is needed.

If it’s positive, then a second test – called an immunoblot test – must be performed. For a diagnosis of Lyme disease, both test results must be positive.

Our difference: Personalized healing

As a functional medicine physician and Lyme disease treatment specialist, Dr. Anju Mathur looks at the different symptom manifestations in each patient before designing an individualized treatment protocol.

Taking a detailed analysis of each patient’s health, she approaches the treatment of chronic Lyme disease symptoms through a system’s approach to healing based on the individual’s experience with the illness.

For example:

  • In the early stages, Lyme disease is treated with antibiotics and most patients make a full recovery with no further complications.
  • Los Angeles patients that are not treated early tend to have recurrent symptoms and are considered to have post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome. Patients with this syndrome suffer from fatigue, joint pain, muscle aches, and body pain. Receiving longer courses of antibiotics helps these patients recover more fully and quickly without further complications.
  • Lyme disease that has gone untreated for an extended period of time can produce increased toxicity, which can lead to debilitation and a reduced quality of life.

The Lyme disease treatment experience What to expect

Dr. Mathur’s “Back to Wellness Program” utilizes the best of functional medicine to help our Los Angeles patients regain their vitality after Lyme disease. Her recommended therapies can help patients suffering from the effects and toxins created by a long-lasting illness.

Here’s a closer look at the approaches you may experience during Lyme disease treatment:

  • IV nutrient therapy can allow the body to get the nutrition it needs to support a healthy immune system and overcome lingering symptoms of Lyme disease.
  • Phospholipid exchange therapy can detoxify the body at a cellular level, and it may cleanse the cells of systemic toxins to improve overall organ function.
  • Chelation therapy can also help to detoxify the body, which may improve immune system function and organ health.
  • Ultraviolet blood irradiation may help to cleanse the blood of harmful bacteria and viruses, which may reduce the effects of Lyme disease.

Dr. Mathur’s comprehensive treatment plans include the use of these therapies. Our Los Angeles patients can utilize this program to overcome the health challenges that present with Lyme disease.

If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms or think you have had similar symptoms due to a past infection, please call 818-930-5706. Los Angeles Lyme disease treatment specialist, Dr. Anju Mathur, can help eradicate the disease or the side effects of a longstanding infection and improve your overall health and wellness levels.

Dear Patients and Friends,

We remain open to provide crucial services to all our patients and we are welcoming new patients.

Our most important goal is to remain healthy and maintain or build a strong immune system. In an effort to do so, we researched and have found a special test to analyze the overall state of health of your immune system.

A healthy immune system is the only thing that will either keep you from getting Covid19 or if you do contract it, keep the symptoms as mild as possible and the recovery as quick as possible. Because of this, we want to provide the opportunity for you to come in and have the overall health of your immune system tested.

If you are interested in this new blood test to find out what the overall state of your immune system is like, you should contact us right away and make an appointment.

We have negotiated some very special pricing on this test and are including your test and report of findings consultation with Dr. Anju Mathur along with her recommendations to maintain your overall immune health for only $199.

Our doctor has also prepared a special message for you:

Update March, 16th:

In recent weeks we have all seen the news about the Coronavirus and even worse, we have seen blatantly threatening news reports, and our friends and family scared out of their wits.

I urge you not to panic. If you are not sure what to do, contact us and we will help you.

Coronavirus is real, but for healthy people it is not a death sentence. The mortality rate is only relatively high in immune compromised people or with other medical issues. Per Dr. SHIVA Ayyadurai, MIT PhD, “Viruses are NOT what kill & harm us (trillions of them in & around us) - rather the over-reaction of a weak & dysfunctional immune system caused by “underlying pre-existing conditions””… “CDCgov can bring CoronaVirus to its knees fast & stop deaths of seniors & immunocompromised by AT LEAST EQUAL emphasis- NOW - on specific foods & supplements to STRENGTHEN our Immune Systems.”

The best and right thing to do is to build up your immune system to be more resistant. In addition to high dose vitamin C, major autohemotherapy, and ultraviolet blood irradiation intravenous therapy, we are putting together our anti-viral supplement package for you. Call us for details.

Until then, we recommend you use very good hygiene practices:

  1. Wash your hands for 40 seconds with soap and hot water.
  2. Wear a mask if you are sick, coughing or sneezing, or have mucus. (Change mask every day).
  3. Wipe down your phone and doorknobs.
  4. Do not touch your face (eyes, nose, mouth).
  5. Use chemical-free anti-bacterial sprays and wipes (you can use essential oils, apple cider vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide)

Also, I want to share a wonderful anti-viral tea recipe:

Anti Viral TEA Recipe by Dr Mathur

Ingredients:

  1. Fresh Grated Ginger-3 Tablespoons
  2. black whole kernels peppercorns- 20-30 pieces
  3. Cinnamon Stick- 1
  4. Black Cloves- 5-8.

Place all of the above ingredients in 3 cups of water and then boil for 20-30 minutes until the water turns black. Then strain it and drink it with some coconut or Almond milk and palm sugar or stevia.

Remember, these symptoms are treatable. You do not have to freak out. Be smart, keep your immune system healthy.

If you do contract the virus, let us know. Don’t panic, we are here for you.

Find facts instead of hysteria here.

John Hopkins reports 70,000 people have recovered worldwide.

Highest percentage of deaths are from immunocompromised patients and patients over 80 years old.
