One of the most common questions I get is “what is your treatment protocol?” Here’s the thing – I don’t have one! At least not one that can be mapped or duplicated.

I’ve tried so many things over the years – it sometimes seems there is no rhyme or reason to what works or when or why. What works for me, may not work for you, but I wanted to share some of what I’ve learned and especially the things that have helped. So below is a compilation of the things that have provided some relief or given me improvement.

The hard part is that most treatment for chronic Lyme is not covered under insurance – so it can be expensive and we have learned to be creative. As they say – if there’s a will there’s a way. So if you find yourself being intrigued by a particular treatment – don’t let discouragement or fear keep you from trying it.

Doctors

Let me start with my doctor team – these are the best of the best and I recommend all of them.

Neck and head pain (click for more details)

  • NUCCA
  • Percussion/Vibration
  • Cold Laser Therapy
  • Posture Pump (not good for me but I recommend it for those who have mild neck stiffness and pain)

Tools for the home

  • Green Air Pro 2
  • Power plate – exercise is important, however aerobic exercise can do more damage than good (try core strengthening as you can)
  • Bio-mat

Supplements

My supplements change all the time and are tailor made for my body. These listed here are general ones that may be helpful, but I strongly encourage you to listen to your body. I am not a doctor, but I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help figure out what might help.
