LYME DISEASE ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES

Click Here for a Note About LymeInfo

The following links are provided as a comprehensive collection of online resources involving alternative treatments for Lyme disease. These links are provided to assist in your own personal research, but do not imply endorsement. These alternative treatments should not replace the standard treatments for Lyme disease, such as antibiotics. Many of the links are geared toward those who have the chronic form of the disease, and LymeInfo advises extra caution when evaluating for-profit sites. The sites listed here are, for the most part, limited to specific 'remedies', as opposed to general health approaches. LymeInfo's position on this collection is that the mere quantity helps demonstrate that if any of these were truly miraculous, the list would be a lot shorter.

In order to receive treatment tailored to your own unique needs, Lymeinfo believes that it is always best to be treated by a licensed holistic practitioner knowledgeable about Lyme disease and/or any associated conditions you may experiencing. There are many self-proclaimed experts in the alternative health field with misleading titles, but one resource for finding a thoroughly trainined natural practitioner is naturopathic.org.
