Immune System Disorders
I have been treating people with immune system disorders for over thirty years. My experience as a primary care physician for hundreds of HIV/AIDS patients helped teach me how to maximally support the immune system. Most of my HIV/AIDS patients from many years ago are still alive and thriving today.
Your immune system is designed to defend you from becoming infected with viruses. Keeping your immune system strong by utilizing an aggressive program of natural therapies can help prevent initial infection as well as shorten the duration of an acute viral illness (such as influenza and Covid-19).
When treating chronic viruses (i.e. HIV/AIDS, HHV6, frequent herpes outbreaks) a comprehensive program utilizing a combination of natural and standard medical treatments leads to the best outcome.
Chronic bacterial infections may include frequent bronchitis, urinary tract infections, skin infections, Lyme disease and MRSA (methicillin-resistant staph aureus). I have achieved excellent results in helping my patients eliminate chronic or recurring bacterial infections utilizing an aggressive program of natural and standard therapies. Combining the strengthening of your immune system with the appropriate use of antibiotics often achieves the best results.
Conditions such as serum lupus erythematosus (SLE), multiple sclerosis (MS) and other autoimmune diseases can occur when the immune system gets so out of balance that it attacks parts of your own body. While significant gains have recently been made with standard medical therapies, true healing only comes when the root cause or causes of this situation are properly identified and addressed. We will thoroughly evaluate these imbalances and design a treatment program to help your immune system heal on a deep, fundamental level. The question is not whether you should use natural OR standard treatments, but how to combine them into the most effective treatment program possible.
GI Candida, Intestinal Parasites, and Food Sensitivities
The gastrointestinal tract is a finely balanced ecosystem with over 500 different strains of organisms competing for space and nutrients. When healthy gut balance exists, few gastrointestinal symptoms are present. However, the natural balance of gut microorganisms is often upset by chronic stress, poor diet, alcohol consumption, and many common medications (such as antibiotics, oral contraceptives, etc.). When the gut is weak and overgrown with unhealthy organisms, your immune system becomes overactive and stressed, and a chronic inflammatory state can take root. An unhealthy gut contributes to symptoms of fatigue, brain fog, insomnia, dementia, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation.
New testing methods are now available to identify whether there are any pathogens present, such as intestinal parasites or fungal overgrowth, as well as to measure the level of healthy bacteria. These testing methods are much more accurate now than they were just a few years ago.
One of the skills I’ve acquired over thirty years of medical practice is the proper evaluation and treatment of an unhealthy gut. The most important lesson I’ve learned is that properly diagnosing the root causes of gut symptoms is the key to treating them properly.
I utilize natural therapies such as diet, micronutrient supplementation, improving gut function and stress management, in addition to the appropriate use of standard medications, to help bring your immune system back into balance.
I have been with Dr. Kaiser now for over 15 years and I can say for sure that he is truly a lifesaver and a game changer. I will never forget when my previous doctor told me that I had a terminal illness. However, from the moment I met Dr. Kaiser, he let me know he would put no limit on my lifetime. Dr. Kaiser not only extended my lifetime, he has also greatly improved its quality.
Working with Dr. Kaiser from out of town has been easy. I flew to see him for the first few visits and since then have had all my appointments by phone. Lab slips are sent to me and I get blood work done and results are sent to Dr. Kaiser and then we have our phone visit, easy as that. Thank you Dr. Kaiser for changing my life forever!

When I first met with you, my entire intestinal system was devastated from intestinal parasites and chronic antibiotic treatment. Your care, attention, knowledge, and the treatments you offered me based on your research, helped me rebuild my whole life.
If I hadn't found you, things could have gone in a really bad direction. As it was, you set me on a gentle and gradual course for recovery that healed my entire life. An unexpected effect of improving my gut health was that the migraines and chronic sinus infections I'd had my whole life completely stopped.
Thank you for how much you helped me and I am so happy that you have returned to private practice. I know that everyone you care for will be very, very lucky.
With love and respect,

I attribute my health and ability to stay healthy with HIV/AIDS to getting your input at a critical moment in my journey. I am now happy, healthy and the proud grandfather of four. I’m also about to turn 79 years old!
