S. Buhner wrote a couple of books on lyme.
First book is good for borrelia, newer books for coinfections. He's got valuable suggestions in my opinion. Many of the questions we have are answered there.

- Articles, links and books here, too:
When considering herbal / nutritional / adjunct methods, because lyme is so very complex & unique, as are possible coinfections:
if at all possible - because each person & each case is different - it's best to consult with an ILADS-educated LL ND (lyme literate naturopathic doctor) (or similar) who has completed four years of post-graduate medical education in the field of herbal and nutritional medicine -
- and someone who is current with ILADS' research & presentations, past and present, and has completed the ILADS Physician Training Program (see: www.ilads.org )
so they really know all they can about the science of lyme . . . how lyme (& other TBD) act and what we can do about that in various ways.
Many LL NDs incorporate antibiotics (depending upon the licensing laws in their state). Some LLMDs and LL NDs have good working relationships.
When possible, it's great to have both a LLMD and LL ND and even better when they have a long-standing professional relationship.
Herbal Safety considerations & reference books; etc.
Links to many articles and books by holistic-minded LL doctors of various degrees who all have this basic approach in common:
Understanding of the importance of addressing the infection(s) fully head-on with specific measures from all corners of medicine;
knowing which supplements have direct impact, which are only support and which are both.
You can compare and contrast many approaches with links to articles, books, methods . . .
BODY WORK methods / links (and why anyone who works on your spine MUST be LL to the degree they at least know to never suddenly twist neck or spine. Never. Ever. And that we should never be advised to do neck / head / shoulder stands.) -

vitamin d3 cured my lyme D3 is a tiny gel pill is all you need and it is dirt cheap and VERY beneficial to your health
if you feal like crap went you first start it stay on it
it might be a herx from your own immune system being lifted up to attack the Lyme
you really need to learn as much as you can about vitamin D here are some good videos on the need to keep vit d at an upper steady level 65 to 85 it has made a world of difference for me, it even cured my sleep apnea i should post that here later
ivermectin ( took away breathing problems and asthma !)
andrographis extract ( not the concentrate ) whole herb
I would also suggest Dr Zhang's allicin because many here have written good things about it for years
Reishii mushrooms- they do not overstimulate your immune system
You can also consider topical antimicrobials like clove , cinnamon, tea tree and eucalyptis oil -
neem powder or neem oil applied topically
I initially thought parasites were just a nutty idea , but made almost no progress w/ 3 years ABX . After using antiparasitical herbs and oils, I can take a two mile walk in the evenings now ( not in the morning ) .
There was early evidence of parasites when lyme was discovered ( filaria found by Dr Burgdorfer in lyme ) . I now am personally convinced that ABX will not cure most of us because they do not address the parasites . Many herbs and plants can attack a WIDE swath of pathogens - far more than ABX.
