Genetic Evaluation

Unlock Your Potential by assessing your genetic profile

Did you know that by doing a simple saliva test, you can discover your DNA blueprint and learn how well your genes are matched to your present diet and lifestyle, as well as how you can unlock the full potential of your current and future health and wellness?

Yes, it is true!  By assessing your genetic profile, the healthcare professionals at Serenity Health Care Center can teach you how to optimize your diet and modify your lifestyle to “turn off” or down-regulate genes that have the potential to cause harm and “turn on” or up-regulate the genes that help to prevent disease.

Our genes support our uniqueness and influence everything from the color of our eyes and our height, to the predisposition to chronic disease. However, science now confirms that our genes interact with our lifestyle choices, such as nutrition, exercise and environmental exposures.

To understand more about your genes, it is important to know that our unique genetic make-up, which is what we are born with, is like our hard drive – and represents our health potential for life. To function optimally in our environment, our genes have ‘epigenomes’, which are parts of our genes that interact with the environment and causes our genes to be ‘triggered’ – otherwise known as ‘epigenetics’ or our software. Therefore, the expression of our DNA is actually controlled by signals from outside each cell – which primarily come from our diet, lifestyle and environmental exposures.

What is Nutrigenomics?

Synchronizing your unique DNA blueprint with our diet and lifestyle, known as Nutrigenomics, is the key to the exciting new realm of personalized wellness medicine. This type of nutrigenomics can help you with weight loss, lipid metabolism, detoxification, and wellness prevention. It helps to know what type of supplements you should take and the amounts. It is truly personalized!

Lyme Disease

Program for Treating Lyme Disease

Chronic Lyme Disease, an infection that suppresses the immune system, creates a pathway for various co-infections like bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic. Lyme spirochetes, Bartonella, and the mosquito parasite Protomyxzoa Rheumatica can form biofilms, which protect them from antibodies, natural killer cells, and antibiotics once they enter our bloodstream.

Effective treatment of Chronic Lyme Disease requires a profound understanding of the Lyme Spirochete and tickborne infections, such as Bartonella and Babesia, which reside in every organ’s cells, causing chronic illness and symptoms throughout the body.

However, treating chronic Lyme disease is more complicated than just knowing about microorganisms, antibiotics, and the immune system. Effective treatment necessitates expertise in the brain and the functions of multiple body systems, including the endocrine, gastrointestinal, and cardiovascular systems.

Understanding Lyme Disease: A Patient’s Perspective

If you’re a Lyme disease patient, you’re likely already well-versed in this condition. In fact, you may have more knowledge about it than some medical professionals. Not only are you coping with the challenges of Lyme disease, but you’ve also dedicated countless hours to researching the latest treatments and hoping for a cure to relieve your suffering.

Perhaps you’ve only recently received a diagnosis after months or even years of experiencing debilitating symptoms such as pain, fatigue, weakness or neurological problems. Unfortunately, you’re not alone. Over 70% of patients with Lyme disease see four or more doctors before receiving an accurate diagnosis and may be accused of exaggerating their symptoms or referred to mental health specialists.

Even if you have a confirmed diagnosis of Lyme disease, you may be dismissed by mainstream medical practitioners. For many physicians, Lyme disease is viewed as a straightforward illness that can be successfully treated with just a couple of weeks of antibiotics.

Providing Tailored Lyme Disease Treatment in Waukesha, WI

As the final hope for Lyme treatment in Waukesha, WI, our practitioners know that no two Lyme disease cases are alike. We honor every aspect of your personal journey that led you to us, and consider you an equal partner in your care. Our team is committed to understanding the intricacies of the most advanced Lyme disease cases, offering specialized treatment that addresses your entire being – mind, body, and soul.

The Connection Between Brain and Immune Function

Neuroimmunologists have found that the immune system is closely linked to the neurological system, with the immune system being the “tail end” of the latter. This implies that in order to increase immune function, we must first address the underlying neurological issues in patients with Chronic Lyme disease.
One of the key factors that affect brain function are neurotransmitters, which are responsible for regulating electrical function in the brain and body. These chemicals play a crucial role in controlling the up-regulation and down-regulation of our immune system. However, patients with Chronic Lyme disease tend to experience significant deficiencies and imbalances in their neurotransmitter levels, which can lead to brain dysfunction. Interestingly, the more antibiotic therapy they undergo, the more severe the distortion of their brain chemistry.

Optimizing Brain Function

Neuroimmunologists have recently stressed that the immune system is merely the “tail end” of the neurological system. Thus, to enhance the immune function of Chronic Lyme patients, we must first address their ailing brains.

Essentially, neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that regulate the electrical function of our brain and body. These neurotransmitters play a significant role in controlling the up-regulation and down-regulation of our immune function. Unfortunately, patients with Chronic Lyme disease often have severe deficiencies and imbalances in their neurotransmitters, which adversely impact brain function. These imbalances only grow worse with each antibiotic therapy administered, exacerbating the distortion of brain chemistry and dysfunction.

Boosting Immune Function by Eliminating Environmental Toxins

Our clinical research has shown that environmental toxins, such as Toluene and Trichothecene (the black mold toxin), have a more profound impact on the immune system than the Lyme toxin. While the Lyme bacterium’s toxin suppresses the production of a specific white blood cell, the CD 57 Lymphocyte, Trichothecene T2 mold toxin destroys the immune system’s primary messenger, 1NF-alpha, and suppresses both the immune system’s humoral (antibodies) and cellular components. Trichothecene also inhibits RNA/DNA replication, which affects the fastest-growing cells the most, leading to leucopenia at high levels. Additionally, Trichothecene and industrial toxins like Benzene decrease the production of all killer cells, not just the CD 57 killer cells found in Lyme toxins. As a result, Dr. Sponaugle has found that most of our “Chronic Lyme” patients have severe Trichothecene toxicity, which has impeded their treatment for years.

Personalized IV Therapy Program for Chronic Lyme Disease

Our Approach to Chronic Lyme Disease Treatment: Detox, Heal, and Kill

At our clinic, we understand that Lyme disease is a complex condition that requires a comprehensive treatment approach. Our chronic Lyme disease treatment protocols start with detox IV therapy treatments that remove toxins and prepare your body for the next phase of treatment.

After detoxification, we focus on optimizing your immune system by addressing nutritional deficiencies and gastrointestinal system dysfunction through healing IV therapy treatments. These infusions help your immune system’s “killing power” and clear toxins from your body.

Once the healing IV therapy treatment is complete, we begin the Lyme Kill Protocol with IV therapy infusion treatments that effectively treat the many infections that Chronic Lyme disease patients suffer from. By busting biofilm, we can target infections such as Bartonella, Protomyxzoa, Mycoplasma, and sometimes Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. It’s important to note that each patient is unique and may have varying levels of cumulative toxicity, disease, or parasite, as well as an extra level of generalized sickness. As such, we consider all of these factors when discussing a timeline for treatment.

Thyroid Dysfunction

A holistic approach to improving your quality of life

Thyroid hormone helps the body convert food into energy, regulates metabolism, and body temperature. It also assists in proper function of the brain, memory and mood. Studies show that currently 52 million Americans are affected by Thyroid dysfunction. Approximately 10% of the population is not diagnosed with Thyroid dysfunction and suffer from clinical symptoms. This scenario is described as clinical or subclinical thyroid dysfunction.

There are multiple reasons which cause the thyroid to become imbalanced resulting in a reduction in thyroid hormones such as; chemical exposures, autoimmune dysfunction, age, medication, and nutritional deficiencies.

TSH or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone is a test used by all conventionally trained practitioners to determine if thyroid is functioning properly. This test has been utilized since 1973. This test actually measures a hormone from the pituitary gland, not the thyroid. A feedback loop within the body is what determines how much hormone to produce in response to the level of hormone circulating in the bloodstream.

The normal range for TSH has been lowered several times over the years. Currently, the AACE, American Association of Clinical Endocrinologist recommend a TSH level of 0.3-2.0. Many patients are still not being treated based on these guidelines. Most are being treated based on the old guidelines, using a TSH level up to 4.5 or 5.0 as the cut-off. This leaves many people untreated and symptomatic.

If a person suffers from an autoimmune thyroid disease, the TSH level can be within the normal range. The antibodies attack the thyroid, causing symptoms of underactive or hypothyroid. It is estimated that 1out of 5 Americans suffer from thyroid disease.

The human thyroid produces T4, T3, T2, T1 and calcitonin. For almost 100 years, practitioners have used porcine thyroid to treat the symptoms of thyroid disease. The treatment was increased until symptoms were relieved. Today we still use similar treatment protocols, however, caution is taken not to overdose the patient.

In the 1960’s Dr. Broda Barnes proved that when thyroid function was not adequate, cholesterol levels would raise, but once Thyroid hormone replacement was given these levels fell.

Dr. John C. Lowe has documented a clear relationship between fibromyalgia and thyroid function. Many fibromyalgia patients benefit from thyroid treatment that includes T3 hormone. It is important for people to receive a combined product that contains both T4 and T3 especially when the body cannot make the appropriate conversion.

The function of the thyroid gland is to take iodine from foods and convert it into thyroid hormone thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Thyroid cells are the only cells in the body which can absorb iodine. There is a combination of iodine and the amino acid tyrosine to make T3 and T4, these are then released into the blood stream and are transported throughout the body where they control metabolism. Every cell in the body depends on these hormones for regulation of various metabolisms.

What is the Thyroid Gland?

The thyroid gland is a small gland, normally weighing less than an ounce, located in the front of the neck.  It is separated into two halves, which are known as lobes.  This gland is situated just below the “Adams apple”.

  1. It is responsible for controlling the rate of which energy is converted from food.  It regulates digestion, oxygen consumption, and mobilization from fat storage.
  2. It is involved in every process conducted by the body.  In a healthy, balanced body, the thyroid gland helps increase the activity of virtually all organs, glands, and cells.
  3. The Thyroid gland assists in regulating body temperature by regulating heat and energy production.
  4. In children, it assists in controlling the body’s rate of growth as well as brain development.  It has a direct affect in determining IQ.
  5. It assists in regulating mood and emotion by balancing brain chemistry.
  6. The thyroid has an important role in immune function.

Symptoms of Hypothyroid (Low Thyroid) may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
  • Coarse, dry hair
  • Dry, rough pale skin
  • Hair loss
  • Cold intolerance
  • Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Memory loss
  • Abnormal menstrual cycles
  • Decreased libido

What are the major effects of thyroid hormone?

  • Basal metabolism and temperature regulation is controlled by thyroid function.
  • Carbohydrate and lipid metabolism is affected by thyroid function.
  • The Nervous system is affected by the various levels of thyroid hormone produced.
  • Cardiovascular system is balanced with proper thyroid hormone production.  The heart’s ability to pump efficiently is affected by the amount of thyroid hormone produced.
  • The Muscular system is affected by thyroid production.  When the levels are low, muscle weakness and pain is noted.
  • In the Skeletal system, the thyroid assists in maintaining proper growth and maturation of the skeleton.
  • The Gastrointestinal system is affected by becoming sluggish or overstimulated, depending on the amount of hormone being produced.
  • The Reproductive system is affected by, causing irregular ovulation and menstruation based on the amount of hormone produced.
  • The Integumentary system is balanced with proper hydration based on the amount of hormone produced by the thyroid gland.

Types of Thyroid Replacement

The oldest type of thyroid supplement is desiccated thyroid, commonly known as Armour Thyroid. This thyroid replacement contains T4 (Thyroxine) which has four iodine atoms per molecule, and Free T3 the (unbound) portion of triiodothyronine which is believed to be responsible for the biological action. Approximately 20% of T3 is produced by the thyroid gland, with the remainder produced through conversion of T4 in the body. In order for this conversion to be effective, the body needs trace minerals and iodine.

Various nutritional deficiencies, medications and diseases can interfere with conversion of the T4/T3 process. The following chart is an example of things that affect this conversion process.

Nutritional Def Medications Other
Chromium Beta Blockers


Copper Birth Control Pills


Iodine Estrogen

Lipoic Acid

Iron Iodinated contrast


Iron Lithium


Selenium Phyenytoin


Zinc Steroids


Vitamin A Theophylline


T4 is a common thyroid supplement which has been used in conventional practices for over 40 years.  Each of these products should be standardized.  The common drug names for these products are Levothroid, Levoxyl, Synthroid, and Unithroid.  These products contain Inactive ingredients which include cornstarch, lactose, and dyes which contain Aluminum Lake.

Studies show that replacement with T4 known as levothyroxine may not be effective.  If a person cannot convert T4 to T3 patients treated with Levothyroxine have a tendency to be left with many of the symptoms they had prior to treatment.  People may need a combined T4/T3 for optimal management of symptoms.

Products which contain combined T4/T3 are Armour, Naturthroid, Thyrolar, and Westhroid.  These are glandular products that have been around for over 100 years. The inactive ingredients include cornstarch.  People with corn sensitivity may not tolerate these natural thyroid products.

Glandular thyroid replacement is a controversial treatment because it was believed to have inconsistent results in controlling the TSH level.  Armour had a dextrose base, making it a good sublingual dosing product until 2009 when it was reformulated to contain a cornstarch base.

Cytomel is the most commonly used T3 supplement.  It is not the best T3 supplement because it has a short half life, 95% of the drug is absorbed within four hours.  Therefore, it should be dosed three to four times a day to obtain consistent blood levels.  It contains talc as a base, which has been known to cause cancer when used in higher amounts.

The Holistic Approach to diagnosing and treating hypothyroidism

Differs from standard conventional model where we rely only on blood tests.  This approach consists of a complete blood panel which includes TSH, T2, T4, and Thyroid Antibodies.  A complete medical history is taken and patients are asked to obtain a minimum of three to four body temperatures, so they can be averaged.  If the temperatures are below normal with symptoms, the diagnosis of hypothyroid can be made.  A physical exam looking specifically the signs of hypothyroid disease is conducting along with an evaluation of nutrient deficiencies.

Physical signs of hypothyroidism

  • Lack of Eyebrow growth, known as the “Sign of Hertoghe.”
  • Periorbital edema
  • Diminished sweating
  • Cold skin
  • Thick tongue
  • Palpitations
  • Slow speech
  • Headaches
  • Coarse hair
  • Ridges on nails
  • Pale skin
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of hair
  • Swollen feet

Individualized Hypothyroid Treatment

Patients who suffer from autoimmune thyroid feel better on a non-corn derived source.  Patients with chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia do better on a non-corn derived source. Patients who suffer from depression respond better to higher T4 preparations.

Nutritional support is necessary when treating patients with thyroid disease.  The following are the basic nutrients needed.

  • Zinc
  • Selenium
  • B-vitamins-non synthetic source
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin A-not Beta Carotene
  • Iodine
  • Vitamin D
  • Calcium –non carbonate unavailable calcium adds to hypothyroid

If you suspect that mold toxicity is behind your health problems, the first step is to schedule a consultation with the practitioners at Serenity Health Care Center. During this initial consultation, you will discuss your medical history, current symptoms, and any known exposure to mold or other environmental toxins. The information gathered will assist in creating a diagnostic plan that may include advanced laboratory testing to detect the presence and extent of mold toxicity.

Mold Toxicity: An Emerging Illness

Over the past 50 years, Mold Toxicity (also known as Mold Sickness or Mold Poisoning) has become a more prevalent illness. The production of energy-efficient homes and office buildings has drastically increased, causing a rise in mold-related health issues. The Federal Government reported that 50 percent of America’s buildings are “sick” buildings due to the toxic gases produced by indoor mold spores. Molds are often hidden behind damaged walls and ceilings, causing an increase in mold symptoms like never before.

Drywall has become the leading cause of mold growth in buildings, and before the 1970s, walls were made from plaster and plywood. When buildings suffer water damage, molds grow rapidly on cellulose material like drywall. The advent of drywall and energy-efficient homes has caused a drastic rise in the number of Americans suffering from mold toxicity.

At Serenity Health Care Center, thousands of patients have been successfully treated for mold toxicity caused by exposure to mold spores and toxic molds in water-damaged buildings.

Mold toxicity and Lyme Disease share common neurological symptoms such as memory loss, slurred speech, and loss of balance.

Dr. Muth’s Own Personal Mold Toxicity Story

Dr Debra Muth, owner

A Personal Account of Mold Toxicity and Recovery
In 2001, I left my conventional practice to join an integrative medical allergy practice. The building I moved to had a musty odor, and certain areas smelled like a damp basement. For the first year, I felt great. However, as time passed, I began to suffer from fatigue, weight gain, and brain fog. I initially thought it was Lyme disease, but as I learned more about mold, I realized that it could be the root of my troubles.

Fast forward to 2011: my husband and I were renovating a lake home when we discovered several areas of black mold. Doing all the work ourselves, I was continuously exposed to Trichothecene toxins that were releasing gases from behind the walls. I tried many remedies to detox, including oral detox regimens, charcoal-based products, cholestyramine, and the entire Shoemaker Protocol, but none of them worked.

For this reason, I dedicated myself to designing and improving intravenous therapy for treating mold toxicity. Then, in 2023, an MRI revealed a golf ball-sized fungal ball in my sinus cavity, which was essentially my own personal mold factory. After the fungal ball was removed, 90% of my symptoms vanished.

Nutritional programs individualized to meet your needs

Nutrition, nourishment, or aliment, is the supply of materials – food – required by organisms and cells to stay alive. In science and human medicine, nutrition is the science or practice of consuming and utilizing foods.

Nutrition is a molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics advance, nutrition has become more focused on the steps of biochemical sequences through which substances inside us and other living organisms are transformed from one form to another – metabolism and metabolic pathways.

Nutrition also focuses on how diseases, conditions and problems can be prevented or lessened with a healthy diet.

In addition, nutrition involves identifying how certain diseases, conditions or problems may be caused by dietary factors, such as poor diet (malnutrition), food allergies, metabolic diseases, etc.

A common place for nutritional medicine is in restoring proper cholesterol levels or blood sugar levels.

It is important to understand the genetic modification that has taken place in our food sources today along with the processed foods that make up a large part of our daily diet and how they affect our bodies and the diseases that we face today.

Anti Aging Therapies

Anti Aging Therapies

Aging is a natural part of life, and so many of us accept it with grace and admiration for those who have come before us. The truth is, none of us want to age, although growing older is unavoidable, many of the effects of aging are preventable. By choosing the right diet, lifestyle, and hormonal and nutritional support, many degenerative diseases and age-related health problems can be prevented or minimized.

What therapies does conventional medicine offer for aging?

Conventional medicine has been used in the U.S. for many years. Most traditional and/or conventional doctors advise their patients  that anti-aging medicine is “quackery,” they believe that drugs and surgery are the best ways to battle age-related disease. While these tools of conventional medicine can save lives in an emergency, they cannot prevent disease or promote health, well-being and longevity.

What are Serenity Health Care Center’s  beliefs about anti aging?

At Serenity, we believe that anti-aging medicine includes the utilization of safe, effective therapies that address the underlying mechanisms of aging/disease. The goal is to provide a quality of life and promote successful aging, which provides you the ability to stay healthy and functional up to the end of a long, productive life.

The focus is on proven natural therapies to prevent and minimize age-related diseases, including targeted nutritional supplements, natural hormone replacement, specific dietary and exercise recommendations, and energy medicine to assist in bringing balance to your life.

Is it possible to slow down the aging process?

While aging is natural, it is understood that age related disease is caused by free-radical damage and inflammatory processes. Free radicals/inflammation are implicated in many diseases, such as:

  • Atherosclerosis
  • Hypertension
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes Late onset
  • Parkinson’s disease

At Serenity Health Care Center our team of doctors, alternative medicine providers, chiropractor, nutritionists and other professionals, teach  you how nutrients and antioxidants such as glutathione, vitamins A, C, and E, and beta-carotene fight free radicals, slowing the rate at which we age and reversing some of the damage already inflicted over the years.

What role does genetic play in aging?

Genetics have been a part of the anti-aging process for the last ten years, nutrigenomics is the study and implementation of nutritional support to prevent or reverse the damage from gene snips.  Dr. Debra Muth can show you how to evaluate and support your genes to assist in the anti-aging process.

How do I get started?

Your Personal Anti-Aging Program starts with an in-depth consultation to create the specific program that will match your anti-aging goals. Many people begin to experience hormone changes in their 20s and 30s, and as time goes on, the physical and emotional impact can take a toll.

Call Serenity Health Care Center to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Debra Muth or Amy Hoffman, NP to begin your anti-aging program today, 262-522-8640.
