In order to optimize health, wellness, and longevity, chronic illnesses such as Lyme, Epstein-Barr Virus, and thyroid dysfunction need to be addressed and treated. Although often ignored in conventional medicine due to traditional practitioners’ lack of treatment options, Dr. Von Schaefer utilizes a wide variety of techniques accumulated through her many years of practice to target these chronic illnesses and help you live a life free of disease.


A bacterial infection carried and transmitted predominantly through tick bites, Lyme disease induces a number of detrimental symptoms, including rash, fever, headache, and fatigue. In particular, for some people Lyme infection can cause long-term, debilitating effects which significantly decrease the quality of life. As a result, treating the disease both in its acute and chronic forms is critical in maintaining good health. Due to this, Dr. Von Schaefer utilizes specialized testing to determine the strain of Lyme causing the infection. Once this is determined, she then eliminates the disease using a multitude of highly effective treatments and home therapies including intravenous endolaser and Supportive Oligonucleotide Therapies (SOTs).

Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), also known as mononucleosis or mono, presents an extremely significant and under-appreciated factor in cancer development as well as conditions such as chronic fatigue. Due to its ability to impair proper immune system functioning, Epstein-Barr Virus can cause solid tumors of all types to develop and grow without the body’s natural defenses being able to eliminate the threat. As one of the world’s foremost experts in treating Epstein-Barr Virus, Dr. Von Schaefer utilizes a variety of techniques such as Supportive Oligonucleotide Therapies (SOTs), Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation, and endolaser to clear EBV and promote proper immune system functioning, leading to cancer reduction.

Often under-diagnosed and overlooked, thyroid dysfunction can be the root cause for a number of severe symptoms, including problems with heart rate, mood, energy levels, and weight. Hypothyroidism, which is when the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone, can cause tiredness, cold sensitivity, weight gain and depression. In contrast, hyperthyroidism, which is when the thyroid gland makes too much thyroid hormone, can cause unexpected weight loss, irregular heartbeat, and irritability. Regardless of the type of thyroid dysfunction present, treating it to stabilize thyroid hormone at the appropriate level can cause a significant increase in quality of life. To this end, Dr. Von Schaefer provides a number of natural therapeutics and medications which help balance thyroid levels and eliminate unwanted symptoms.

HPV, Human Papillomavirus, and HSV, Human Simplex Virus, are two of the most common sexually transmitted diseases in today’s society. Unfortunately, both of these viruses can play a significant role in cancer growth and development. For HPV, types 6, 11, 16, and 18 have been proven to contribute to the onset of multiple cancer types, including cervical, penile, and anal cancers. For HSV, the presence of the virus can cause impairment of the body’s natural immune system, thus causing abnormal cells to be able to divide and multiply without being eliminated. In order to treat these conditions, Dr. Von Schaefer utilizes intravenous therapies, such as endolaser and ultraviolet blood irradiation, Supportive Oligonucleotide Therapies (SOTs), and home supplementation to eradicate the viruses. Furthermore, by testing directly for viral presence both intracellularly and extracellularly, Dr. Von Schaefer is able to ensure that these viruses are eliminated systematically and no longer impairing normal bodily function.

Characterized by profound exhaustion, weakness, and difficulty concentrating, chronic fatigue severely impacts a person’s ability to live a normal, fulfilled life. As a result, treating this condition is paramount in order to improve quality of life, and Dr. Von Schaefer has developed a number of therapies and treatments to this effect. For instance, one of her therapies which boosts energy levels is the Infrared Canopy Bed. By exposing the body to infrared light over a 20-40 minute session, the Infrared Canopy Bed improves mitochondrial function and decreases exhaustion. Furthermore, by completing a comprehensive analysis of the genetic, metabolic, and environmental factors contributing to chronic fatigue, Dr. Von Schaefer is able to develop a comprehensive plan to target and treat each component of the disease.

A painful and debilitating disorder, fibromyalgia causes widespread musculoskeletal pain combined with fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. While there is not a specific cure for fibromyalgia, there are a number of treatments and lifestyle changes which can help manage the symptoms and improve quality of life. In order to properly address this condition, Dr. Von Schaefer first completes a comprehensive analysis of each patient to better understand any underlying factors which may be contributing to fibromyalgia. Using this information, she is then able to recommend a number of intravenous treatments, such as Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation, external therapies, such as the Infrared Canopy Bed, and home medication and supplementation which will be most effective in decreasing pain and managing the disorder.

Encompassing both Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by either the death or impaired function of cells in the Central Nervous System. Associated most often with aging, these conditions can have a severe impact including in particular on memory, cognition, and motor function. In order to help treat these disorders, Dr. Von Schaefer utilizes a number of natural therapies which help protect normal nervous system functioning. For instance, one of the treatments Dr. Von Schaefer offers is the Infrared Laser Helmet, a device which uses targeted infrared radiation in order to improve mitochondrial function and cellular health. By drawing on her many years of expertise treating these conditions, Dr. Von Schaefer is able to develop a personalized plan combining in-office treatments with home protocols, medication, and supplementation in order to combat the growth and development of neurodegenerative diseases.

An often underappreciated environmental threat, mold toxicity can cause a wide variety of symptoms including mental and cognitive impairment, abdominal pain, muscle pain, digestive issues, hair loss, rashes, as well as others. While mold toxicity is often difficult to diagnose in traditional medicine, Dr. Von Schaefer utilizes her advanced training to assess the environmental factors and determine whether or not mold toxicity is contributing to a patient’s condition. After diagnosing mold toxicity, Dr. Von Schaefer then works with the patient to best treat their case, such as making recommendations which assist in limiting harmful environmental exposure, to providing natural therapeutic remedies and home protocols.

Defined as coronavirus symptoms which persist 3 months or more after initial infection, Long COVID-19 can significantly decrease a person’s quality of life due to the fatigue, shortness of breath, cognitive impairment, and other problems it may cause. In order to treat this, Dr. Von Schaefer utilizes techniques such as anti-inflammatory intravenous therapies combined with home supplementation which removes excess SPIKE protein remaining from the initial COVID-19 infection. By working closely with each patient to assess their condition and determine any underlying factors contributing to Long COVID-19, Dr. Von Schaefer is able to mitigate these detrimental symptoms and help return the patient to their normal, healthy state.
