Use of Naturopathic Medicine in Treatment of Tick-borne Diseases
After finishing his academic education at two German Universities (Regensburg and Munich) and medical training, Dr. Nicolaus opened a GP practice in the South of Germany. After a few weeks as a GP, he was first confronted with the issues of tick-borne diseases, particularly Lyme disease.
During the 17 years of his career as a GP, tick-borne diseases became of great and increasing importance for himself and his patients. In 2006, he opened the first German treatment facility for tick-borne diseases in the Augsburg, South of Germany, together with his colleague, Dr. Armin Schwarzbach. The treatment centre is specialised in diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation of tick-borne diseases. Dr. Nicolaus has been an active member of the German Borreliosis Society and ILADS for many years.
