I haven't heard really anyone talk about this place on here.
A member of this forum has a sister who is currently being treated there. She had been diagnosed with ALS in the states and started deteriorating quite fast. I have been corresponding with her to get updates, and will most likely visit the facility before years end.
I called the clinic last week. The lady who answered the call was very kind and informative. She sent me an email with a form to fill out a listing of diagnosis, symptoms, meds, etc...
I then called them back to let them know it was filled out and submitted. She then scheduled an appointment for me to talk to a doctor at the clinic to go over what would be the right route for me to take.
That appointment was this evening. A Dr, I forgot his name, called me at 5 pm and discussed my issues and explained how things worked at the facility and what to expect. What I was most interested in was the hypertherapy treatment. He explained that they have some of their doctors go to the ILADS convention in Boston each year to be up to date on the latest in the Lyme world.
They focus on overall health while eradicating Borrelia and all co-infections. It sounds too good to be true. But, he answered some important questions for me which lead me to believe that this facility is legit.
I told him that I will be receiving funds with help from others and that I was trying to decide whether to pick this facility or Dr. J's 9 month IV program. Can't do both. So, I asked him how they can do in 2-3 weeks what it takes one of the best Lyme specialists in the world 9 months to years to do. He explained to me, which this part I already knew, that Borrelia presents itself in different forms. Larva, nymph, adult form; Cyst form, and Biofilm. He said that it takes a while to hit all forms with the conventional oral/IV treatment.
The Lyme protocol they use is usually 2 weeks. He is recommending 3 weeks for neuro Lyme sufferers, which I am. Each week, everything is based around the main event, the hyperthermia session. The middle of each week, you go into hyperthermia therapy
How this works: They sedate you. Raise your body temperature to as close to 106.9 Fahrenheit as they can. This process takes about 2 hours. They then keep you at that temperature for 2 hours. All the while hydrating you via IV. This temperature breaks down all forms of Borrelia and coinfections. Once these break down they hit you with IV Flagyl, Azithromycin, and I think he said Rocephin. Not sure about the last one because of his accent. But they hit you with 3 abx intravenously.
The standard treatment of this is twice in the 2 week program. But, I have been recommended 3 weeks with 3 sessions.

The coordinator on the phone told me that they had a woman come to their clinic who had been clinically diagnosed with Lyme. She had been treating for quite a while but was not getting any better. They tested her for Lyme, came back negative. They found out she had Hashimoto's. Once they treated the Hashimoto's, she started getting better.
This is another reason why I want to go to this clinic. They have many patients come there with unexplained illnesses. They find what is wrong with them and treat them accordingly.
