Our Story

 

It all started in 2011 with an idea – armed with the right step-by-step plans using what really works, chronic Lyme disease sufferers can recover and lead full lives. So I gave birth to an early version of Treat Lyme by Marty Ross MD in Seattle, Washington. This site remains open to all from its current home in Austin, Texas.

Why

When I started treating chronic Lyme In 2004, I could not find accurate or helpful online information to treat people. By 2011, when I set up Treat Lyme by Marty Ross MD the situation was worse. Then information was available in patient blogs and Facebook, but it was not easy to use and often wrong. I decided to step in to help Lyme sufferers and their physicians.

Treat Lyme is based on what works in my extensive clinical experience and the best available science. I try to explain things in a way that makes the complex simple and understandable. It has step-by-step plans that are easy to follow. You do not need a medical degree to use this site, but it contains quality info that even physicians find useful.

In Service

I am drawn to helping the underdog. This vibrates in tune with my soul. In 2004 I treated my first person with chronic Lyme disease, because it was the right thing to do. As a group, people living with chronic Lyme disease are outcast and medically underserved. This is due to the policies of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), government, health insurance companies, and state medical licensing boards who deny the existence of this illness and the people suffering.

After Indiana University School of Medicine in 1988, I moved to Washington, DC, to train in Georgetown’s Family Medicine program treating the urban poor. My first job as a physician was working among the homeless on the streets of DC. After this I wrote healthcare law in the United States Senate, securing fair funding for people with HIV in the early 90s by rewriting key parts of the Ryan White Care Act. In 1996, I was one of the leaders setting up the nation’s first publicly funded alternative medicine clinic for low income and racially underserved populations outside Seattle. I established The Healing Arts Partnership in Seattle in 2000 to practice integrative medicine using the best of natural medicines and prescriptions. There I chose to help people with chronic fatiguing and complex illnesses that conventional medicine failed. 

I am licensed to practice medicine in Washington state. I moved to Austin in late 2018. Here I continue my service to those living with Lyme through the information I provide on this site. 

Eureka

People living with Lyme take back their lives using Treat Lyme by Marty Ross MD. I hear this regularly from physicians and people successfully using my resources. I am very happy to hear these countless stories. Through Treat Lyme I continue to pull for the underdog while walking my path of service.
