How is Lyme disease treated?
Lyme disease is a very complex and challenging illness to treat. It is rarely one infection, a patient is often infected with Lyme (caused by Borrelia) along with multiple co- infections like Bartonella, Babesia and Mycoplasma to name just a few. Viruses and molds can also complicate the illness as can allergies, immune dysfunction, chronic inflammation and a host of other co-morbidities (illnesses). Testing for diagnosis is often unreliable with many false negatives because the bacteria can be in the blood or in the cells, hidden in cysts or biofilms, active or dormant.
There is successful treatment available but there is no quick fix. One protocol does not work for all. Each treatment plan needs to be individualized and may involve using herbal formulas and natural remedies and/or antibiotics, anti-parasitic, antiviral and anti-fungal drugs.
