Thoughts on safety and efficacy of  major autohemotherapy for chronic lyme disease. This treatment has been recommended along with silver iv.

Very promising but..: Major autohemotherapy using ozone is a cutting-edge treatment which is more widely used in Europe but a growing # of innovative docs in the US are offering it. I'm not aware of research on it for Lyme but there are studies showing it to be safe and effective for macular degeneration, Hep C, eczema and other conditions and many case reports of success in chronic Lyme.

I'm on doxy for treating chronic Lyme. Finished week 1,still fatigued etc.. What if this option of treatment doesn't work-then what? I'm worried

Wrong treatment: Studies have shown that long term antibiotics have no value for chronic issues. This needs to be treated as an autoimmune disease and not an infection. Chronic Lyme is often a misdiagnosis. See a rheumatologist. ...Read more

Lyme disease treatment?

Depends: Lyme disease is easily treatable once it is diagnosed, which is sometimes difficult given current testing. Early Lyme is treated with doxycycline for 14-21 days. Disseminated Lyme (meningitis, carditis, Bell's Palsy) is treated 21-28 days and Lyme arthritis, a single swollen joint, is treated 28 days. Later Lyme is either treated with doxycycline or, in more severe cases, IV ceftriaxone. ...Read more

Can babesiosis interfere with standard Lyme treatment?

Can babesiosis interfere with standard Lyme treatment?

Must be considered: Many patients with lyme disease have co-infections with babesiosis &/or bartonella. These can cause symptoms as or even more serious than lyme. Many lyme specialists feel it is impossible to effectively treat lyme unless you treat these co-infections & that the best strategy is to focus on treating the co-infections first. Babesiosis is easier to clear than lyme but is still a challenge to treat. ...Read more

What is a reasonable treatment time frame late diagnosed, acute Lyme disease?

Hard to say: It really depends on whether you have any coinfections, and your general physical health (metal toxicity, poor detox capacity and food allergies, adrenal fatigue and low thyroid can all make treatment more difficult) expect treatment to the point of being symptome free to take many weeks at least, many months at worst. ...Read more
