Why is Lyme Disease so hard to diagnose? Part 1
June 30, 2015
Lyme Disease and co-infections: How can you tell whether patients still have Lyme Disease, or, as conventional Infectious Disease doctors suggest, are just suffering from "Post-Lyme Syndrome?" Could they be suffering the deleterious effects of all the antibiotics they received? Are tests accurate? Is there a role for natural therapies in the treatment of Lyme Disease: Nutrients for mitochondrial support or gut repair? Hyperthermia? Oxidative therapies like ozone, hydrogen peroxide, hyperbaric oxygen, or IV vitamin C? Herbs that kill or inhibit Lyme or other pathogens? Do some doctors over-treat patients with suspected infections to their detriment? Click HERE for part 2.
