Does anyone have any experience in being treated with Traditional Chinese Medicine as opposed to antibiotic treatment?

TCM will help a bit, many people used many of the Chinese herbs here for many many years. There are many threads about that. Chinese herbs are known to help lyme disease, but TCM alone will probably not cure you from chronic lyme.

Are you talking about TCM from food or from medicine (plants) or from acupuncture and meridian treatments? Whichever you do, it will probably help, but it will not cure you, unless you get a lyme specialist.

Dr. Zhang was such a specialist, but recently, not many people are talking about his treatment... They talk about his combination of pills though, that seem to help for certain specific problems (bart for example, if my memory is good).

I have great respect for Chinese herbs, but for lyme, you need a lyme specialist! Used in conjuction, for symptom relief, more energy, etc, I feel it's very good though.

I started TCM and herbs about 3 weeks ago. Way too early to tell if it will help. I have seen 2 different LLMD's over the past 4 yrs. Been on all the different antibiotics and 1 yr of IV antibiotics and I still have overwhelming fatigue and burning sensations. I'm concentrating on bart right now.
