About My Guest:

Dr Raj Patel has extensive experience with, various natural therapies including nutritional medicine, homeopathy, herbs and mind-body medicine. Integrating these diverse therapies with allopathic medicine has enabled Dr. Patel to offer a highly refined approach to healthcare that produces lasting results. Since 1993, Dr. Patel has specialized in helping patients struggling with "Chronic Fatigue" (CFIDS), Candidiasis, food sensitivities, thyroid and other hormonal imbalances, chronic infections, and heavy metals. Over the years, Dr. Patel has specialized in treating patients with Autistim Spectrum Disorders (ASD) as well as Lyme and other vector-borne diseases. He began working with autistic children in 1999 and to date has helped over 500 children on their road to recovery. Another area that Dr. Patel specializes in is treating Lyme disease. It is well documented that patients with chronic Lyme disease also suffer from Candidiasis, food sensitivities, accumulation of heavy metals, and hormonal imbalances. With his background in treating these conditions, Dr. Patel has been able to create a comprehensive program for treating those struggling with chronic Lyme disease. He has found incredible success in treating individuals with chronic Lyme disease by combining antimicrobial treatment with heavy metal detoxification, food allergy desensitization and hormonal support. Dr. Patel is an active member of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS). He has also completed advanced training in pediatric Lyme disease. Dr. Patel first began looking into Dr. Shoemaker’s incredible work on chronic inflammation resulting from exposure to water damaged buildings (WDB) in 2010. He found that many of his “Lyme patients” who had experienced only partial improvement, turned out to be simultaneously struggling with toxic exposure to water-damaged buildings. When they began responding dramatically to simply getting out of their home and taking cholestyramine, Dr. Patel’s interest was piqued to learn more about Dr. Shoemaker’s treatment approach to this illness. Dr. Patel today integrates the findings from Dr. Shoemaker as well as other doctors working with mold illness to see patients making impressive recoveries from this debilitating illness.
