“The prevailing thought with this disease is that once you take care of Borrelia your immune system can take care of the rest. Not sure if anyone knows how true that is but I have two friends that were cured with Rocephin and one with Doxy that caught theirs early. If it weren't true then that means none of them had co-infections which I highly doubt so I think there's some truth to that.”
Early cases have a much higher success rate - and yes just lyme treatment often works.
But for chronic Lyme - many (most?) docs generally believe it’s the coinfections that need to fall.
That is what DrJ in DC says - especially Babesia - he goes after it first (after a stabilization period)
I know no one with chronic Lyme that treated just lyme and then their immune system took care of bart and Babs.
I would run the other way if a LLMD told me he wouid treat lyme and then my immune system would be able to take care of bart and Babs.
