I've been hearing that a lot lately - LL practitioners saying that Lyme isn't the main issue for people. Okay, then what is? Lyme may not be a main issue, but most people can't heal until it's addressed, so I'm kind of confused why they think it's not a main issue.
Well, at least your mom's situation makes a little more sense though. It sounds like many others that I have talked to that are being pushed too fast and hard into or through protocols. For many, we have to start out on very small doses and ramp up the amount very slowly, and increase our detoxing and support for the body as well - it take it all to recover and I happen to believe that those last two points are often ignored by these practitioners.
If you can find a LLMD that will listen and take it very slowly with your Mom, then that's the route I would suggest -nothing like really good guidance.
