Is Chelation Therapy and/or Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy effective for Lyme Disease? I got Lyme Disease in summer of 2006 with bulls-eye, etc. I'm trying to find something that helps other than pills that I have take a basketful of. If anyone knows the pros or cons of these treatments please advise. Thanks, Linda of LA

Hi Linda,

Welcome to the forum!

I'm sorry to say that I don't have any experience with either of these but I'm hoping someone else does.

I use chelation to chelate a monster burder of mercury that i have in my system.   Mercury and some other heavy metals are direct immunosuppresants and will keep you sick.   Have a hair analysis done and find out if you have high lead levels, mercury, arsenic, etc.  There is also a big link between mercury burden and lyme.. google it. 
 My levels were literally off the charts, and when i reviewed how far off the charts, it was more then double the maximum level of the charts.   scary.  hyberbaric.. ive done that a few times but i never felt anything other than breathing easier for a few hours after the treatment.  the breathing easier is probably benefecial when done at least 7 times a week over the long haul.  But alas,   i can't afford to do it twice a day at 100 bucks a pop nor can i afford to buy one.    Chelation at least you can measure your progress every so often via urine analysis.   I am skeptical of the other claims that chelation therapy supposedly improves, but at least with metal you can directly measure it.
