Hello. Ive been experiencing what I now know are the many symptoms of Lyme disease for years. Only recently diagnosed. Looking for a lyme literate doctor near Howell, Michigan. I’m very afraid of antibiotics. Is this the only way to treat late stage or chronic Lyme?

Hi Ihealwell -

Welcome to the forum - I'm sorry you're here but glad you found us.

Orientation:
Please review the "New to Lyme?" thread info at the top of the page - it has invaluable information about diagnosis, symptoms, treatment, etc. and will help you prepare for your first appointment.
www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=30&m=1606610

You might want to change the title of your thread to "Looking for LLMD near Howell, MI" - and this might help it get more attention.

Lyme specialists:
Any of the mods can help you find a specialist in your area (pirouette, Girle, goshawk) - just click on the envelope icon beneath our screen names to the left - it will bring up a profile page with an email address.

Y​​ou can go to ​​The Lyme Disease Association and search for LLMD's three 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​

Y​ou can email ​the​ Tick-Borne Disease Alliance at​: medicalinfo@tbdalliance.org

ILADS has their own referral system as well:
​​​ilads.org/ilads_media/physician-referral/

And www.LymeDoc.org

You will want to find an ILADS trained doctor, as ID Docs (Infectious Disease Doctors) as well as many others believe Lyme is hard to catch and easy to treat, and don't believe in the reality of chronic Lyme--they adhere dogmatically to the IDSA and very narrow definition of Lyme and limited treatment. Go to the ILADS site to read the new (2014) Treatment guidelines to get you started on your healing journey: www.ilads.org/lyme/treatment-guideline.php

Lyme coaching
www.lymecoaching.com/#!schedule-a-call/c1gzt

Treatment:
No - abx are not the only treatment for chronic, late-stage, disseminated Lyme or "Post-Lyme Syndrome" - we have many people on the forum using herbal protocols and other alternative treatments. You can learn more in the "New to Lyme?" thread and do searches for conversations we've had. Or you can post a new thread asking about specific treatments. There are MANY great resources we can share with you to help you and your specialists make treatment decisions.

Hope this is helpful - if not, please keep asking questions! The members here are quite knowledgeable and helpful.
