Gordon Medical finds that Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is a very useful modality in treating Lyme disease. Patients have a lot of questions about how works, and how it can be used. FSM is an exciting new way of treating nerve and muscle pain and many other conditions using specific frequencies and micro amperage current. The practitioner applies the current using a battery operated unit with lead wires that attach to gloves, probes, or sticky pads that are then applied to the patient’s skin. Skilled practitioners use their knowledge of specific frequencies, along with the distinctive change in tissue that happens in the body when the right frequency is used.
Treatment can be done by a practitioner in a medical office, or may be prescribed for the patient to use at home with custom programmed units. Patients should always be well hydrated before treatment in order to best conduct the current, and to have a better chance of being able to detox any toxins that are released with the treatment.
Eric Gordon, MD and Julie Galvan, CMT, recorded this informal discussion about some of the issues they see in treatment of chronic Lyme patients. It won’t answer all of your questions, but will give an idea of how it is used in this office.
