Being from Arizona I was shocked when my wife tested positive for Lyme disesase. That was years ago. Since then I have studied everything I can find on the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme.

In this video I will share with you some of the highlights in the diagnosis and treatment for Lyme Disease.

For all the details please read my article on Lyme HERE.

The Functional Medicine Approach to Lyme

Lyme disease is a condition that the functional medicine approach is a great fit for. Getting patients well requires more than just killing bacteria. If you think you might be suffering from Lyme, I would love to help you. This disease is very personal for me. I’ve seen up close and personal just how debilitating chronic Lyme can be. Unfortunately this is one disease that standard medicine has a long way to go in understanding how to diagnose and treat. Most patients with Lyme who go to their regular doc will not be diagnosed or they will be misdiagnosed. Because I tend to see patients who have already been to many doctors without getting well, I screen almost everyone for immune markers for Lyme. It still amazes me how often patients test positive.

Still, most patients I see do not have Lyme. Thanks to functional medicine I am able to help. It’s not unusual for my patients to have problems with multiple systems in their body. I commonly see patients with some sort of intestinal problem, hormone imbalance, and several nutritional deficiencies. When there are multiple systems in the body that are not working right, the symptoms are often very diverse. This is where a very comprehensive history and testing can unravel the most mysterious illnesses.

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
