Chronic Lyme can be very difficult to treat. To recover requires much more than antibiotics alone. When treatment is blocked at six months and beyond, I recommend following all of the basic steps (Parts 1-11) in The Successful Treatment Recipe and expanding treatment to cover additional problems like heavy metal toxicity.
- detoxification treatments for MTHFR methylation defect, lyme and mold biotoxins, and heavy metals like lead and mercury.
- biofilm treatments discussed in Biofilms: Lyme Disease Gated Communities.
- chronic viral infection treatments discussed in Kills Viruses: A Brief Guide.
- mitochondrial dysfunction treatments described in Power Up! Energy and Mitochondria.
- co-infection treatments described in Kills Bartonella: A Brief Guide, or Kills Babesia: A Brief Guide if symptoms of these recur or continue.
- autoimmune illness treatment described in On Low Dose (LDN) Treatment & Lyme. Does It Help?
- yeast treatments described in Kills Yeast: A Brief Guide if you have a number of these symptoms: increased sugar cravings, intestinal gassiness or bloating, recent vaginal yeast infection, oral yeast, and/or vaginal or rectal itching.
