That's how I healed - herbs only. I'm an abx failure, so I had no other choice. Believe me, the choice is yours as to whether you wish to use herbs only, herbs and abx or abx only - but I do have to say that I have seen more people relapse that have used abx only for their treatments.
And abx won't do a thing for your immune system, you need natural treatments to help raise the function of your immune system.
As for your "LLMD" - they aren't one if they don't treat until 2 months past the resolution of all symptoms. That's what ILADS teaches. Doctors may pin LLMD on themselves, but they haven't earned it and there are many scams out there.
For information on finding an ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society) trained Lyme Literate Medical Doctor(LLMD) in your area, you can send me an email by clicking on my screen name or the small blue envelope under my screen name.

You can go to The Lyme Disease Association and search for LLMD's 3 times in a month. You have to register first. Here is the link:www.lymediseaseassociation.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=277&Itemid=74
ILADS has their own referral system as well:ilads.org/ilads_media/physician-referral/
You will want to find an ILADS trained doctor, not one that has self proclaimed themselves as a LLMD or an ID Doc (Infectious Disease Doctor), as ID docs believe Lyme is hard to catch and easy to treat, and don't believe in the reality of chronic Lyme. Go to the ILADS site to read the new (2014) Treatment guidelines to get you started on your healing journey:
