Treating Lyme and any other chronic disease requires expertise in all your symptoms in order to achieve long term healing. Our patented method takes far less time and addresses your health concerns in a safe way while reducing and eliminating any unnecessary and overprescribed medications.


Our Immune system is designed to fight diseases and pathogens like Lyme and other co-infections, extremely effectively. The fact that you are experiencing symptoms from Lyme means your Immune system is compromised, your Mind-Body is misfiring or out of alignment. This makes Lyme and many other chronic infections’ symptoms; symptoms of much deeper root causes.

By implementing multiple treatment modalities, therapies, and standards of care with an integrative Mind-Body approach, Lifestyle Healing’s innovative therapies target the root cause(s) of your Lyme with the most scientifically based treatment protocols available.




Chronic Lyme is often a complex illness spanning years of hardships, symptoms, and struggle. Traditional and alternative treatments alike consist of endless antibiotic, ozone, and herbal treatments, being told you have to feel worse to feel better, countless “die-off” – just to hope to feel better. Our Mind-Body Ecosystem and the billions of interconnected cells we all possess, are our best shot at healing any symptom or illness, and these mainstream types of treatments prove to be ineffective and often outright dangerous.

Lifestyle Healing Institute® has spent years utilizing the latest science and clinical data to establish the most scientifically based treatment protocols available that heal your Mind-Body at the cellular level, the system level, and the whole person level. Our treatment program reveals the underlying cause(s) behind your Lyme symptoms; each program is designed to just get you better.

Don't Kill My Lyme book by Lifestyle Healing Institute® Founder Wyatt Palumbo
In “Don’t Kill My Lyme – Just Get Me Better”, Wyatt Palumbo, BSChE, disputes the overwhelming opinion that you must “kill” your Lyme in order to heal.


Yes, you read correctly. You don’t have to kill your Lyme and suffer through months and years of harmful antibiotic, ozone, and herbal remedies. You don’t have to suffer the agonizing die-offs (Jarisch-Herxheimer Reactions). You don’t have to kill your Lyme to get better.

Lyme and other chronic illnesses, especially chronic infections, build bioresistant biofilms making diagnosis and subsequent treatment elusive. Many individuals have been to numerous doctors who share the same philosophy – you must kill your Lyme. You must feel worse to feel better; it’s just not true. The data and most importantly, the Body, do not support this premise.

If you’re reading this page, it means those doctors and treatments have let you down, and you’re still not better. Our Mind-Body is our best healer; Let’s build it up, not break it down. It’s time for another way. A way that doesn’t require killing Lyme at all. LHI’s Baseline Therapy for Lyme is an innovative method that is grounded in natural science with successful long term results.

• You will Never, Ever, Ever Kill Lyme completely – no matter what type of treatment you seek or have done in the past, so why not recognize the science AND avoid dangerously destroying your Body, just to try and kill your Lyme.

• Lyme Disease and 80% of Infectious Disease build biofilms. Biofilms are ubiquitous; it’s more about measuring the chronic infectious tipping point.

• Biofilm species have been found in fossils dating back 4.25 billion years –we have grown alongside these species and we won’t outsmart them.

• Biofilm species have intricate and highly sophisticated communication systems.

• Biofilm species have their own metabolic systems.

• Antibiotics are the most common treatment available.

• Antibiotics do not penetrate biofilms and thus are ineffective in Lyme and Chronic Lyme treatment protocols.

• Antibiotics make biofilm species more resistant.

• Antibiotics cause extensive damage to the brain, the immune system, and the GI system.

• Killing Lyme causes Die-off which worsens symptoms and even cause new symptoms to develop.

• A compromised immune system allows initial entry of Lyme Disease and other co-infections.

• Lyme appears to resemble numerous other conditions and is most often NOT the underlying cause of your illness. Lyme and other chronic infections should be treated as additional symptoms

• All chronic illness, especially Chronic Lyme, have a bevy of mental-emotional issues due to the debilitating nature of the disease. These issues needs to be addressed also as they play major role in the manifestations of symptoms, especially the “relapse” of those symptoms.

Lyme treatment and other chronic disease treatment requires expertise in all your symptoms in order to achieve long term healing. The bevy of symptoms that accompany Lyme span across multiple Brain and Body systems, and the longer you are ill, the more this disease affects your emotions and mental well-being. All of these aspects of ourselves need to be addressed in order to sustain long term healing from Chronic Lyme. Our method takes far less time, doesn’t require any killing which causes die-off, and addresses the underlying cause(s) of your illness – safely – while reducing and eliminating the use of prescription medications.


• Autoimmunity and Immune Dysfunction
• Chronic Migraines and Headaches
• Genetic Abnormalities
• Blood Sugar, Diabetes
• The Mind, Relationships, Emotions



Lifestyle Healing Institute® recognizes the vital importance each system plays in the Body and Mind’s dynamic equilibrium. We’ve spent nearly a decade researching biofilm’s direct association with the immune system, infectious disease, and the manifestation of symptoms. Through extensive research and clinical patient data, we’ve pinpointed the other major Brain and Body systems involved in Lyme and other chronic conditions to become a nationwide, and now global, expert in the field of Lyme, natural healthcare solutions, and all of the accompanying symptoms and medications Lyme individuals endure along their health journey.
In the following sections, we answer some common questions that arise as well as reveal scientific support of our views on Lyme and subsequent Chronic disease treatment.
The two most common culprits that affect our immune systems are stress and toxins. Stressors can be anything from money, work, and illness to our relationships, fears, and traumas. Regardless of the source of the stress, our Mind-Body produces a proportionate biochemical response that increases heart rate, blood pressure, and glucose consumption – but lowers immune function and blood flow to the front of the brain. This also leaves us exposed to becoming infected with pathogens such as Lyme, bartonella, or Babesia.

Environmental toxins such as mycotoxins, benzene, and toluene as well as industrial toxins such as plastics, pesticides, and other synthetic chemicals -all compromise our immune function. Our white blood cells, cytokines, and other immune system pathways are affected almost immediately when exposed to any of these types of toxins.

Studies show that if our immune system is healthy, we can successfully fight and manage countless different bacteria, viruses, and parasites; this necessitates the need to retrain sympathetic stress and Mind-Body pathways as well as remove any toxins from our Ecosystem. This also means infections, especially chronic infections, are symptoms of underlying causes.

This is the real question when it comes to Lyme Disease and any other type of infection whether viral, parasitic, or bacterial. For example, it’s estimated only approximately 10% of individuals with Epstein-Barr experience symptoms, but the other 90% do not. Lyme and other chronic infections are symptoms of underlying causes, and our Baseline Therapy for Lyme can uncover  and treat what is causing all of your symptoms.
Once allowed entry, pathogens begin to build a biofilm. For more information on biofilm, scroll down a bit, but in summary, a biofilm is a fort where bacteria and pathogens tend to congregate free from invasion from your immune system. This protective layering allows them to grow and feed off your Body without much opposition. Biofilm growth can occur nearly everywhere in the Body and is an inevitability of being a human. However if the infection worsens or becomes chronic, biofilm growth escalates.

After pathogens begin to build a home and invade surrounding tissues, multiple bodily systems become affected as pathogens like Lyme can make their way to the brain in as little as 12 hours. This causes the brain’s excitatory chemicals to increase in response. The neurological system is the beginning of total body imbalance, thus causing a cascade of other systems that become affected. Lyme and its biofilms can invade the joints, the gut, the brain and spinal tissue, and more. This is the reason many individuals suffering from Chronic Lyme Disease feel as though their entire body is in a state of multi-system shutdown.

We test over 100 biomarkers revealing a true holistic picture of the Mind and Body on an individual system basis. We base LHI’s Baseline Therapy on sound scientific research as well as true patient data and healing programs. We correlate test results and treat multiple bodily systems affected by Lyme and other pathogens. This has led us to determine some of the most common underlying biochemical pathways involved in Lyme and chronic illness.
A biofilm is a polysaccharide extracellular matrix (ECM) that 80% of infectious disease builds in order to increase their chance of survival once in your body. There’s a common theme with all life on this planet, which is the pursuit of survival. Additionally, the majority of life wants to achieve their survival with the path of least resistance. Bacteria and infectious pathogens are no exception. 99% of all bacteria don’t want to be free floating; it’s just too much effort. They want to congregate with their friends and feed off you!

A biofilm attaches, grows, and eventually detaches as part of their typical lifestyle. However, if addressed improperly, you induce detachment prematurely, which leads to further damage. An example of induced detachment is nutrient depravation.

A biofilm provides the platform tfor pathogens and other microorganisms and particles to build their own community. It provides Lyme and other infectious diseases a place to hang out, gather nutrients, and communicate. Biofilms form where there’s a flowing liquid surface next to a solid surface, such as the blood and GI system. Dental plaque is a biofilm, and they are also found naturally in Nature such as those slimy, slippery rocks in a creek or canal.

Furthermore, a biofilm is a place for them to live freely from attack of your own immunity. This means you can’t dissolve and attack infections with your own immune system if they’re hiding within a biofilm. The universal nature of biofilms means that we should be analyzing whether we’ve reached a tipping point in biofilm and infectious disease, not whether we have it or not.

The problem with an attack on biofilms is that bugs don’t want to die; thus, they release one last burst of toxins before they die which is known as a Jarisch-Herxheimer (HX) reaction. HX reactions are extremely dangerous as they elicit the same response as any other environmental or industrial toxin.

Attacking the biofilm to treat Lyme and its co-infections is unnecessary, easily avoidable, and outright dangerous. Why would you beat down and damage your best healing tool, your own Body and Cells? Practitioners can convince us that killing Lyme and die-off is a necessary step in healing, but it’s not. You don’t have to feel worse in order to feel better.

All of these treatments are effective and been linked with countless benefits. They are great treatment methods when used appropriately. The issue with Ozone, hyperbaric, high dose vitamin C or peroxide, and other herbal remedies is that they are used to kill. Our body naturally produces peroxides and other chemicals designed to neutralize internal issues and pathogens; however, by pushing these pathways externally with these types of treatments, die-off is created.

We can fall into a trap by thinking that creating more neutralizing capabilities will clear the Chronic Lyme infection and heal our symptoms. Lyme is just another symptom, a symptom of a much deeper underlying causes. This renders these types of approaches not only ineffective, but often dangerous for their propensity to be mismanaged in attempts to kill pathogens like Lyme.

Patients are treated with extensive antibiotics with any chronic infection. However, with chronic infectious disease that build biofilms – like Lyme, this is not only ineffective, but harmful, showing that it directly contributes to increased resistance, increased susceptibility to infection, and GI dysfunction.

Antibiotics can successfully eradicate Lyme within the first two weeks of infection and are widely effective in acute, short-term infections such as Strep. However, only 10% of individuals receive the infamous “bulls eye” when it comes to Lyme, making them aware of the infection. For the other 90% of individuals, the awareness of infection occurs far beyond the two- week mark, making antibiotics not only ineffective, but dangerous.

Antibiotics need to bind directly to the subunits of these organisms, and if they can’t do so, they’re ineffective. With a biofilm producing organism like Lyme, this makes direct binding impossible – not nearly impossible – impossible! Not only that, but they can’t penetrate the layers of the biofilm, thus causing further mutations. Therefore, you’re left with a more resistant infection, as well as all the negative side effects of excessive antibiotics.

Much smarter than you may think. Many species of bacteria and pathogenic infectious bugs have shown to communicate with each other within your body; they talk to each other. Additionally, they exist in various forms and are a product of their environment. Our extensive biofilm research shows Lyme can exist in multiple forms.

Most are familiar with the Lyme spirochete, but did you know it exists in a cystic form? It even exists in a form without a cell membrane. This shows the vast amounts of inherent adaptation that a single bug possesses.

“Speaking of adaptations, did you know these organisms can mutate to prolong survival?” E. Coli, one of the most studied bacterium of all time, can mutate two separate ways in response to the same stimuli – antibiotics. Antibiotic resistance is becoming more and more prevalent nowadays, because organisms are getting smarter, and as aforementioned, they’re merely trying to survive like everything else.

Studies show the same strand of E. Coli was separated and treated with the same antibiotics; the results were, one survived and became much more resistant to any additional antibiotic therapy. The other actually mutated by stealing a piece of a leftover virus from the host, downloading it to its genetics, and was then able to mutate so it no longer needed a biofilm to survive. These are not your everyday bugs; the sad part is this is largely a product of our own doing.

Biofilm are not a new concept, (dental plaque is a biofilm) however their association with infectious disease is largely unknown and misunderstood. Other common places that biofilms are discussed are water treatment facilities (water – flowing liquid, pipes – solid surface), and in the implantation of medical devices. You may not have heard of the latter two examples for biofilm; however, everyone is aware of dental plaque.

We could go on forever about biofilm, but you may wonder if we test for it. Of course, as with almost everything, you can test for biofilm as well. Lifestyle Healing Institute® would rather over-test than under-test, then risk guessing at what could be happening, rather than what is.
