Welcome!

Sign up (over on the right) to get more tips and helps via the newsletter.  Right Here —>>>

I’ll be adding all kinds of pages and posts about how to Heal From Lyme Disease.  I’ve certainly had a lot of treatments (and made a lot of improvement).  You add your comments also and we can all help each other.

Check out the Symptom Survey and the Lyme Links for now.

I don’t have all the answers to healing from Lyme.  Together we can find and explore those treatments that will bring us back to full health.  I have a bias toward alternative treatments.  I believe limited antibiotics can be helpful for some people.

However, I think too many people just rely on “long-term” antibiotics and ignore so many other treatments that can help them.

If you have an idea that I may be able to make a “post” about here, just include your idea in a comment below.

Also, please share this site others.  Remember the web address HealFromLyme.com to share.  I made the domain name easy to remember and pass on.

Oh yes, I’m supposed to put this silly caveat here:  I’m not a medical doctor and this information is not for you to prescribe or treat (blah, blah).  I think it’s crazy to let the American Medical Association with it’s orthodoxy be the only entity that can give me health information.  

I assert my right to choose my own treatment.  If I’m going to heal from Lyme disease I MUST go beyond the established standards of care.

    My sister inlaw is very sick and we believe she has Lyme disease. She has been diagnosed with many other things over the last several months. It has been difficult to find treatment here in Ontario. There are a few places but the waiting lists are long and you need a medical referral. She was diagnosed at Redpaw which is more of an alternative base. Do you know where she can get help? She is in a lot of pain.
    Thanks

    I found one specialist who I’m working with (in California) through the
    book “Insights into Lyme Disease Treatment: 13 Lyme Literate Physicians”

    I can’t remember whether one of the 13 was in Canada, but you could get the
    book and check. The book would help you find info in any case.

    I am in Ontario with chronic Lyme for the past 3 years.

    I made the choice to go to Dr S Bock at Rhinebeck Health Centre in Rhinebeck, NY after reading the above mentioned book. Clear desperation was pivotal in making that choice, as it’s an expensive route to choose. My first appointment was full of testing which gave clear results for the follow up appointment, so I feel well worth the efforts. This route is not for everyone, but it is working for me as I’ve been on Doxy plus other supplements since last November and feeling much better.

    As a secondary choice you can look into a product called MMS on the internet as it’s an inexpensive way to go (and a personal choice) … There are two books that are full of information on self help: The first is Wolf Storl’s book “Heal Lyme Naturally” … he is a PHD medical anthropologist who had Lyme and healed himself. He has a very interesting philosophy about Lyme and treatment is focued on a plant called teasel which has been very helpful for some Lyme people.

    Another well known book is Steven Bruhner’s book entitled Heal Lyme: Natural Healing and Prevention of Lyme. Check out Lady Barbara’s Garden and her experience of using teasel on youtube … she is a very helpful resource and another who had Lyme 8 times (if I recall properly).

    Finally you can check into a holistic MD here in Ontario … they are more open to alternative therapies, but again will cost a fair amount of money. It’s a tough road not only for the person, but also for the family to endure … all the best !

    Hi,

    I also live in California. May I ask which doctor you are working with?

    Thank you,

    Has she really helped you recover? Does she use herbs or antibiotics? Please help me!

    She uses both. I don’t prefer antibiotics. I’m still struggling with fatigue and stomach pain. The Yeast Beaters Cleanse has helped some.

    You’ve tried almost everything and if you are still not better, it could be post-lyme syndrome. See below.

    You heal from this in a similar way, and it’s important to treat biofilm.
    You’ve been doing all the right things, but something is missing if you are not better.

    I had Lyme and couldn’t take antibiotics after 5 months. I had a relapse a number of months post-antibiotics, and treated myself. I am a health practitioner, so I was able to do kinesiology to find out what treatment I needed, similar to Klinghardt’s testing.

    I think it helps a lot to narrow down what you need and what type of treatment is best with the kinesiology . You can heal without antibiotics, but you do need something to kill the spirochetes and lots of detoxification at the same time. Infrared sauna helps with detox, as well as coffee enemas. When you kill spirochetes they give off the neurotoxin and as you know it can make you feel much worse. I treat people with Lyme now and this method seems to work.
