Do we know of any LLMD's or lyme literate practitioners that use mainly herbals?

She is in MD. She has a website, but I am not sure I can post it on here.

There are many LLND's who treat primarily with herbals, homeopathy, etc.

Girlie, do you have a list of them?

Would you be able to send names of those that are nearest to my state?

I will check my list for that State and see if I have any. It's Maryland?



edit: I don't have any NP's listed, but I do have at least one Integrative Physician (Holistic wellness)...


If you're interested in her contact info - send me an email.

I’m not at my computer right now where my files are.

Could you send me an email to remind me ?

I will be home later on and will check for you

Most (most, but not all) of the LLMDs around here do primarily abx with supporting supplements.

Our functional medicine MD use to do primarily abx, but he did not see as positive results with the abx in his years of practice and now treats more than 50% of his patients with non-abx approaches.

So, it will vary with LLMDs (in my opinion/experience).

LLNP/LLND (naturopath doctors) will tend to treat with things like herbals, supplements, and numerous other alternative treatments. Some NPs can apparently prescribe medications but others can't (I think it varies depending on state? Perhaps somebody else can verify that who knows better?) Our NP can not prescribe abx.
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
