Good morning everyone. I am a new member and would appreciate some references. I’ve had lyme disease since last spring (Elispot Borrelia test from a lab in Germany) and a coinfection (WA-1 Babesia duncani from a lab in U.S.). My symptoms are extreme joint pain (mainly in the knees). LLMD prescribed antibiotics and supplements has resulted in a rash on my upper chest and shoulders. As a result, I’ve decided to go with herbal treatment only. Could you recommend an herbalist and/or LLND in the New Hampshire seacoast area or Massachusetts North Shore area? Thanks.

Welcome Clam Digger. Oh how some clam chowder sounds good to me on this chilly morning here at my house.

My local health food store was very helpful in my finding a local doctor for a friend. I would start there. Word of mouth is amazing still. You can also find lyme groups on Facebook and that is a great place for local references. Many towns have lyme support groups on FB.

Buhner has a list of herbalists:

buhnerhealinglyme.com/resources/herbalists/

And other resources are these below. You will have to call and see if they are LLND and if they use herbs or antibiotics. I found an LLMD that used herbs through these sites.

/sites.google.com/site/lymedoctors/

/globallymealliance.org/education-awareness/find-medical-professional/

ilads.org/ilads_media/physician-referral/

/www.lymediseaseassociation.org/ -- Go to Dr. Referral tab

It is surprising how they keep these sites so up-to-date. You will have to interview each one you find. You can find suggested questions to ask in the New To Lyme thread at the top of the forum list.

And there are various herbal protocols you can learn from a book and do yourself. I did Buhner's core protocol from his book, Healing Lyme, 2nd Ed. I had horrible lyme brain and still made it.

There are many helpful people on this forum that are glad to help you.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Hi Clam Digger, welcome!

I have a few options for herbalists/ND's in NH and Mass. I don't know if they are particularly in the areas you are seeking though.
Send me an email and I'll give you the contact information.

You are so welcome!

I sure am craving clam chowder..... Guess what will be on my next shopping list? But, it won't be fresh clams, sadly. Oh well....

Clam Digger - I received your email and have replied.


Looks like there are several good options - if the locations work for you.
