Do be sure to find out what they believe your Mom's treatments will look like. In looking at their site, I see this:
Our treatment is based on honoring the interconnection of the whole person, the pathology they are faced with and the multitude of treatment options that are available. We pool this knowledge together, with the patient, to formulate a customized treatment plan.
This plan will include:
utilization of food as medicine;
assessing nutritional intake;
judicious and safe use of antibiotics when appropriate;
nutritional and herbal supplements when appropriate;
manual therapies such as acupuncture to augment treatment.
The Stram Center practices medicine in a whole system approach to the care of our patients. Our treatment navigation is guided by listening to our patients tell their unique story.
Find out how many (percentage) of patients they have been able to 'see through' to healing and for how long those patients have been healed (any relapses).
Be sure to ask how and when to contact them - do they accept urgent phone calls/emails if things are going wrong? What about
any emergencies, what's the best way to contact them?
Find out what their thoughts on detoxing and forms of detoxing that they encourage their patients to use.
I think most of the other questions are covered in the post that PeteZa is referring to (page 2 of the "new to Lyme" thread)
