Natural Awakenings Tucson

Thoughtful Medicine, PLLC

Charles Knouse

Dr. Charles Knouse, D.O., got the name Thoughtful Medicine for his practice from an article by Kenneth Stoller, M.D., of California, on treating Lyme disease. Knouse was so impressed with Stoller’s thoughtful and open-minded approach that he decided to adopt both the phrase and the philosophy for his own practice in Tucson.

Due to Knouse’s background in molecular biology, microbiology and chemistry, in addition to his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree, he is incorporating cutting-edge, ground-breaking microbiology techniques in his comprehensive approach to Lyme disease and other “mysterious” diseases—being the first in Arizona to his knowledge to culture live blood from patients.

“It only takes two drops of blood from a finger, but in culture, in plenty of broth, infective forms in the blood that are normally invisible under the microscope are tricked, over five days, into blowing up into their macro forms, and then they are easily seen,” explains Knouse. “It doesn’t matter if you have, as so many do, a dozen negative lab tests. When a blood culture is positive, it is definitive—you can’t argue with it.”
