Borrelia burgdorferi is a spirochete, a class of long, slender bacteria that typically take on a coiled shape. Infection with this bacterium causes Lyme disease
Lyme disease is far a greater problem in the United States than it once was – arguably an epidemic. The symptoms vary case by case. Since this is a systemic disease with three distinct stages, the whole individual and all of the bodily systems must be studied.
Compared to other treatment centers, FMA takes an integrative approach by using both conventional and alternative treatments.
We conduct specific blood tests for diagnosing lyme disease and utilize two leading laboratories at Stony Brook in New York and IgenX in California. Additionally, extensive testing is performed regarding autoimmune and heavy metals by blood and urine.
