Our Approach

Protocol® Overview: Our holistic five-step approach to diagnosis and treatment.

Jemsek® Specialty Clinic’s approach to treatment is multi-pronged and involves careful sequencing of anti-infective medications which target the bacteria, fungi, and protozoan pathogens responsible for Lyme Borreliosis Complex. Medications are used in various combinations and are typically administered on a pulsing (intermittent) basis which takes advantage of the targeted pathogends’ life cycles. This approach has the additional benefit of allowing the body to recover between treatment cycles.

Jemsek® Specialty Clinic’s Program to Identify and Stabilize health issues associated with LBC.

P

pain

O

other (social support, access to care)

E

endocrine/metabolic

M

mood

S

sleep

A key initial step to the success of our program is to identify and stabilize debilitating symptoms and eliminate other barriers in the way of effective care. In order to do this, we utilize a system created by Dr. Jemsek, termed POEMS.

You will be carefully monitored and evaluated throughout the stabilization process, and your Jemsek® Specialty Clinic provider will track your progress and adjust your program accordingly to best meet your treatment goals.

Recommendations for stabilization (POEMS) are essential and accomplished through lifestyle and diet changes, understanding the importance of supporting individuals, recognition of destabilizing key metabolic abnormalities addressing pain stressors and sleep disfunction.

Evaluation

The initial step is a thorough evaluation of patient’s history and records followed by thorough physical examination. This is a first and important step, which entails a minimum of two and a half hours with each new patient.

Stabilization

A key second step which follows evaluation is to identify and stabilize debilitating symptoms. Identify barriers to effective care and strive to solve these barriers. To help to be consistent, we use this system, which was created by Dr. Jemsek and we define it as POEMS.

Treatment

Our treatment is multi-pronged and involves careful sequencing of anti-infective medications which target the bacteria, fungi, and protozoan pathogens responsible for Lyme Borreliosis Complex (LBC).

Medications are used in various combinations and are typically administered on a pulsing (intermittent) basis which takes advantage of the TARGETED PATHOGENS’ life cycles. This approach has the additional benefit of allowing the body to recover between treatment cycles.  

Healing

As a result of our treatment program the patient will begin to experience a reduction of inflammation and cell death with a corresponding improvement in immunologic health.

Once the multiple pathogens which constitute LBC are purged, the body finally has the opportunity to heal. This is a slow process but remarkable gains in mental stability and quality of life emerge and continue to emerge over time.
