I am searching for a LL infectious disease doctor in the Lehigh Valley, Pa for my husband. The western blot indicated only bands 41 and 45 so infectious disease docs in my area refuse to believe he has Lyme diseae.

Hi Wifelyme!
Welcome to the community!

I​f ​you haven't ​yet​,​​​​ it would be helpful for you to start with reading through the thread at the top of the forum titled,"New to Lyme?...Start here!!", as​​ ​​it is packed ​​full of ​​important information​​, symptom lists, helpful links and pdf's, how to detox when one has these infections, information on probiotics and much more.​​ ​​​​And, here's another good place to find helpful detoxing rout​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ines​​:​​​​​​ ​​​​​

In case you don't get a lot of suggestions from the members quickly, here are some other resources you can check into:

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Y​​ou can go to ​​The Lyme Disease Association and search for LLMD's 3 times in a month. You have to register first. Here is the link:​

​​ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Y​​ou can email ​​​​the​​ ​​​​​​Tick-Borne Disease Alliance at​:

​​ ​​​​​​​​​​ILADS has their own referral system as well:

​ ​

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. Go to the ILADS site to read the new (2014) Treatment guidelines to get you started on your healing journey:

Herb only treatment for Lyme & Bart ended 12/11 - no active symptoms for 2 yrs -Herb only treatment for Babesia ended 12/12
Had Lyme, Bart, Babs, RMSF, Ehrlichia, Myco, Anaplasmosis, EBV
New set of infections 8/2014 - still treating.

I live in Bethlehem, PA. There are no LLMDs here, you have to have to travel to NJ, or down by Philly (or elsewhere.) I see an LLMD south down by King of Prussia.

There is a Lehigh Valley Lyme Support Group meeting this Wednesday night. They may have other info on LLMDs, herbal options, etc. I have never went to this meeting so not sure 100%, it will be my first time.

Good luck
