Viruses, Bacteria & Co Infections A Critical Understanding of Lyme Disease & Associated Co-Infections 


Hosted by Regenerus Laboratories  we welcome Dr. Horst-Günter Maxeiner and Dr. Carsten Nicolaus, MD PhD, the heads of the BCA laboratory clinic in Germany, this day will bring together the complexities of laboratory evaluations, including an understanding of state of the art Lyme Diseases diagnostics, alongside treatment of chronic Lyme Disease and Co-Infections. 

Supported by experienced nutritional therapist and functional medicine practitioner Robyn Puglia, this one-day seminar will provide information relevant to health practitioners to improve their understanding and management of Lyme Disease and co-infections .

We were delighted to be hosting this event that helps practitioners explore their understanding of Lyme Disease and co-infections and the effective an reliable methods for identification in the laboratory. This is a critical area for many patients and is chronically ‘missed’ by most allopathic and integrated practitioners. Diagnosis is fraught with complications and the far-reaching effect of infections on whole-body systems, means their presence can be masked by many other chronic illnesses.

Part 2 Dr Carsten Nicolaus - BCA Clinic

MD. phD. Medical & Exectutive Director.

His experience in treating Lyme disease and co-infections over the last 25 years and his visits to various national and international conferences as well as the increase of Lyme disease patients led him to open the BCA-clinic Augsburg to specialise on the treatment of tick-borne diseases.  For more than 25 years, Dr. Nicolaus has treated patients suffering from tick-borne diseases. He understands the complexity of the disease- the difficulties the attending physician and the laboratory face in terms of the diagnostics and treatment of Lyme disease and its co-infections and the psychological strains patients face in terms of their uncertainty.
