Q: Silvia, as you know I was using ONDAMED back in 2006 to get healthy. Being an ND, what are your thoughts on healing Lyme disease?

A: I believe healing is very possible with almost all disease processes including Lyme disease. I consider Lyme disease an immune deficiency disorder. The question that interests me, as a practitioner, is WHY the immune system of my patient is suppressed or dysfunctional. I am a firm believer in the theory that our physiology follows our minds and emotions. In other words, our body manifests unresolved emotional issues such as the trauma or shock we experienced at some point in our lives. The memory of such unresolved trauma or shock resides on a cellular level somewhere in our body hindering our body to be as strong, vibrant, and healthy as it could possibly be. We won’t notice it right away. By nature the person doesn’t remember these events since natural protective mechanisms may block out memories. But what I believe happens is that the shock or trauma disconnects us from the powerful self we have come to be and live in this lifetime. Most of us continue to stray away from “our path” and further disconnect from our truth. This, in a much broader sense and from a wider perspective on immune deficiency disorders, may be the causal factor for our disease journeys. It is our own disconnect from the power within which invites inflammation and infection.

Q: How does ONDAMED help those who are suffering from Lyme disease?

A: ONDAMED, with its unique biofeedback methodology, allows practitioners to find and treat dysfunctional tissue. The practitioner stimulates the patient with specifically chosen focused fields emitted from a handheld applicator that is moved along the body, from head to toe, front and back. Each time an area of the patient’s body reacts to the stimulus (as felt through the biofeedback loop) the practitioner notes this reaction area, concluding that there may be inflammation, infection, scar tissue, or memories of unresolved shock or trauma residing on a cellular level.

It is the patient who sits in the driver’s seat, directing the practitioner to WHERE the weakest areas are located and WHICH focused fields are needed to stimulate these areas. Instead of using systemically pharmaceutical or nutraceutical approaches, the ONDAMED provides a focused “electroceutical” approach targeted to the areas in most need.

If you’ve ever seen Dr. Beverly Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation, she uses a Tricorder Technology to scan over the body to evaluate imbalances and once imbalances are found, she uses the Tricorder to send electromagnetic pulses toward the body area to stimulate healing processes. ONDAMED is quite similar, but may be the 1st generation of an advanced Tricorder since Star Trek plays in the 24th Century.

Now back to our time and your question, Perry, the ONDAMED stimulation attracts an immune response to the specific tissue area where applicators are placed. ONDAMED’s focused fields cause an induction from within cells and tissue; cells and tissue are being vibrated or moved, which causes not only the immune system to respond, but also detoxifies the cells from toxins and waste product.

While ONDAMED’s stimulation impacts the targeted tissue areas, ONDAMED also has a systemic effect on the lymphatic system, the circulatory and the nervous system. Lymphatic flow is being stimulated to help carry toxins and waste product from the cell environment to the respective organs to excrete the unwanted debris through stool, urine, or sweat to name a few.

While the ONDAMED is causing so many different benefits to happen all at the same time, its focused field stimulation also significantly impacts the nervous system. Depending on the fields used, they either have a relaxing or exciting effect on the nervous system.

Q: Tell us more about using ONDAMED to address all the symptoms that people with Lyme suffer from?

A: I typically suggest that our practitioners use all four operating Modules the ONDAMED System offers. This will allow the addressing of patients’ symptoms from different perspectives with a wide range of frequencies and programs.

First we work with frequencies which are specific to organs and organ systems, offering very precise frequencies to the areas in most distress. Then in Module 2,
170 different therapeutic programs offer a more generic approach while providing important information as to the patient’s health journey. You may compare these programs, which are combinations of frequencies (but never more than 2 at one time) to a whole piece of music, or in other words, a symphony.

It is critical, especially for immune deficiency disorders including Lyme disease, to also use Module 3, frequencies that correlate to microorganism related information. This Module is the most specific of all, using only one frequency to primarily stimulate an immune response.

Module 4 is also essential since it deals with unique frequencies to stimulate assimilation of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and more.

With use of these four Modules, Lyme sufferers have been shown to:

·         relax deeply

·         improve their sleep patterns

·         detoxify by sweating more and with noticeable frequency and consistency changes in stool & urine

·         improve facial complexion (patients’ skin color changes from a grey tone to a healthy radiant tone)

·         have more energy

·         think clearer

·         improve memory

·         increase range of motion

·         have less or no pain

·         reduce or stop medication (with guidance of their physician)

·         balance weight

·         reduce or stop addictive patterns

·         feel better about themselves and find it easier to manage their life’s challenges

·         improve quality of life significantly

·         to undertake big life transformations, including a new career path, seeking additional or brand new education, changing or allowing a partnership, move, etc.

Q: What should one expect to feel after an ONDAMED session? When can people start to notice improvement with the use of ONDAMED? Is there a rough estimate of the number of sessions that someone may need before they start feeling symptoms get better?

A: The first thing people feel is that they relax and have less pain. Often patients report a better and deeper sleep. Pain levels drop and people can move better and easier and they have more energy! They feel better about themselves and start taking ownership of their lives again.

Generally speaking, people should feel a change in the first 5 sessions and after 15 – 20 sessions (either weekly or bi-weekly) there should be a substantial improvement with their symptoms. I always tell my patients that the first step to getting them well is to stabilize them, which may take anywhere from 2-10 sessions. After they have achieved a stable level, we then work on building their health. So, even if the symptoms have been reduced it is important to work on building strength and health.

Q: If symptoms get better, is it safe to say that healing is actually taking place. Most people with Lyme are very fearful. They fear that they aren’t ever going to get well and if they do get well, they can expect to have another “attack” or “episode” of symptoms.

A: Yes, we can safely say that patients are healing. Of course, our belief in Naturopathic Medicine is to stimulate the patient’s own healing abilities, which is always present in the body. I want to mention here that while our healing abilities are present, the patient may not yet be ready for healing. We must respect the patient’s need and abilities and the right time for undertaking their healing journey. Another belief we hold in Naturopathic Medicine is to set the patient free and not bind them to yet another “thing”. Therefore, while ONDAMED is a significant tool to stimulate wholesome healing, we must never forget or stop to educate our patients in terms of life style, nutrition, stress factors in their environment, etc. This way the patient is equipped with their own tools to better understand how to live a more aware, healthy, and joyful life.

I can’t stress enough how critical the work is with unresolved emotional shock or trauma. By stepping into a deeper level with patients, we are able to help them reconnect to their inner strength, and to follow this connection and strength. Once people “get a hold” of their power within and they start nurturing and growing their “inner seed”, they have a fundamental base from which to direct their bodies and avoid ever having to experience another “attack” or “episode”.

Q: How does energetic medicine fit into someone’s recovery? How should it be used?

A: Good question, Perry. Since all matter including all beings is founded on electro-magnetic forces, it is a no brainer to understand the importance of using energy medicine. The field of Western medicine has long been using “energetic medicine” to diagnose – just look at MRI, X-Ray, Ultrasound, EEG and EKG. These devices are an integral part of medicine.

Acupuncture, pulse reading and herbs have been used for thousands of years as part of many cultures.

The field of “energetic medicine” offers many different approaches. I am a skeptic and need to see evidence of safety and efficacy. All of you should ask questions when offered any form of treatment. I always encourage my patients to do their own research, since it puts them in a position of power.
There are fine & cutting edge energetic approaches, yet there also are many questionable methods, some even dangerous. If you wish to heal quickly and lastingly you must be treated in a focused and specific way. The body needs specificity for proper healing (the yogis already stated this a long time ago). A generic approach can be limited, may cost you time and money, and more importantly you may give up hope. We don’t want that. Therefore, do your own research and use common-sense and practical thinking. It goes a long way and sets you free.

All in all, people need different elements of healing stimulation. Several pizza slices make a whole “pizza pie” and we need different slices of therapeutic interaction to reduce or even better to end people’s suffering from their Lyme symptoms.  It is absolutely necessary to include energetic medicine in order to tap into the cellular communication system of a person.

The return to Personalized Medicine, in a safe and common-sense kind of way, is the key for helping people to not only overcome their disease, but to learn from their disease journey and to become a more aware, healthy, strong, and joyful person.
