Lyme Disease

Dr. Henninger has been working with patients affected with Lyme disease, neurological illnesses and especially with autism.  In his experience, of working with these conditions, some common themes transcend all illnesses. People who become chronically ill have a high toxic load, such as:

  • Lyme neurotoxins and co-infections
  • Heavy metals
  • Emotional burden
  • Phthalates or other environmental toxins (BT) and chemicals
  • High microbial load (molds, parasites, viruses)
  • Food allergies (increased intestinal permeability and decreased nutrient absorption)
  • Medication overload


The basic naturopathic principles to support the body are important when these conditions exist. These include the following steps:

  • Diet modification
  • Reduction of stress levels
  • Reduction of toxic exposures and EMR’s
  • Getting a baseline nutritional protocol
  • Ensuring adequate fluid intake

As practitioners, we try to find out what the microbe may be, or what the toxin may be, but in reality for most people who have found themselves with chronic illnesses; it is a combination of many factors. The bigger question is why do some people get sick with these exposures and others do not?
