Lyme Disease Treatment

Lyme Disease Treatment with Carolyn B. Welcome, PA-C

Carolyn B. Welcome PA-CFrom 2007 until 2014 Carolyn practiced medicine in New York City at Lyme Resource Medical, the office of Bernard D. Raxlen, MD, a founding member of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) who has treated tick-borne illness successfully for over 30 years. While shadowing Eric Gordon, MD and Wayne Anderson, ND she has recognized the importance of an unlayering of symptoms and a step-by-step treatment plan that addresses the most dominant issues before moving on to others. “Two steps forward, one step back” can describe the process of healing from complex illness: this perspective can help patients remain hopeful as they recover.

Lyme Disease Treatment with Wayne Anderson, ND

Wayne Anderson, N.D. is an independent practitioner working out of the Santa Rosa offices of Gordon Medical. For more than 25 years, Dr. Anderson has known that his patients are partners in the process of learning about and treating their illness, whether they choose conventional or alternative medicine or a combination of both. In 2002, at GMA, with a growing focus on Lyme disease, he developed a deeper understanding of chronic illness, its treatment, and the frontiers still available as possible solutions.

A curious and dedicated clinician, Dr. Anderson is committed to the ongoing process of learning and teaching. In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Anderson maintained his initial focus on teaching. For over 20 years he taught medical students at Touro Osteopathic Medical School, and supervised residents from Sutter Hospital and interns from the Physician Assistant programs in the clinic setting. He is also a popular speaker on the topics of Lyme disease and neurotoxin illness. He has spoken at conferences for the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS), the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM),  Orthomolecular Health Medicine (OHM), and Lyme Induced Autism (LIA), as well as select private symposiums on CFIDS, Lyme, and Autism.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) was once limited to supplements and herbs. Today, these approaches are part of a comprehensive system including many disciplines. The terms complementary and alternative describe practices and products that people choose as adjuncts to or as alternatives to Western medical approaches.

CAM is a form of healing that considers the whole person — body, mind, spirit, and emotions — in the quest for optimal health and wellness. According to Alternative Medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health — the primary goal of Alternative medicine practice — by gaining proper balance in life.

CAM practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health.

About CAM

IV Nutritional And Chelation Therapies

IV therapies are indicated for numerous reasons, including, but not limited to: fluid and electrolyte replacement, antibiotic, antimicrobial, antioxidant, detoxification, and/or pain relief.

IV therapies are fast acting due to the direct introduction into the bloodstream. IV medications do not have to undergo digestive metabolism and therefore, some medications may be given at higher doses. They can also be a good option for those who are unable to take medications or nutrients by other routes (including oral, rectal, and topical routes).
