How much did you spend on your total treatment. How do you afford the doctor's fees and all the tests and treatment costs. I don't understand how so many-even young people who could not work have gone through so many treatments. How do they pay for it?

I think it depends on the way you treat it.
There are so many treatment modalities, practitioners etc.

I couldn't find any doctor to treat me at first, so I bought Buhner's herbs and some tinctures and started from that. It was not expensive.

When I finally found some help, the insurance covered some of it.

but I live in Switzerland.

I know fees and costs are prohibitive in the US.

I started with a ND for 6 months and wasted time and money but I was a neebie plus no doctor would treat me. Contacted a LLMD and was told I would need an I.V. protocol as I was so very, very ill with late stage Neuro-Lyme but decided to go the oral route because of the expense.

I saw my LLMD for 9 or 10 months and returned to work. I relapsed, off of work, back on treatment, returned to work, relapsed, treated for 2 1/2 years. Roughly 500.00 a month ( this includes supplements, prolotherapy, Low dose immunology, biomat, ect). Ran out of money, maxed out credit card and savings.

It is in my honest opinion, I should have never stopped a maintenance antibiotic protocol. It is possible to get well, I have done it twice. Just started new protocol. Many friends, neighbors, family members help me, no one can go this alone.

Also, apply for financial help.

Yes the cost of lyme treatment is high and that is on purpose.
