Looking for an LLMD who will use herbs/rx treatment and who treats clinically, as I have no positive test results.

I'm almost "all better" and my doc has been great, but I think I need a different/additional LLMD to get me the rest of the way.

I don't believe I need IVs, so that's not an issue; just want to be SURE I'm kicking these bugs out!

I'm well enough to travel now, anywhere in the US.

As far as herbs being used, I guess you'd need to see Dr H in NY.

I don't know who else is well-versed in using herbs .. AND is good with abx.

Thanks, tutu!

I'm more interested in the abx, just looking for someone who is open to supplementation with herbs.

Also wanted to add that I have the MTHFR A1298C gene mutation, so I'd like to find someone who at least knows about it :-)

I would say Dr H. is the best from what I have read from others. Although, other doctors have gotten the newly Lyme'd back to good health as well.

Once a person goes chronic, it is a heck of a lot more difficult & you would want someone who at least tried alternate routes and do not simply give up.

My previous doc was considered good & he did treat me where others would not. Keep in mind that I only had a few symptoms when I saw him & mainly IIH (Idiopathic Intercranial Hypertension).

He treated me with IV Rocephin, Mepron & Biaxin. Dr H. helped me hold the infection, where I would have continued to get worst.

Yes to Dr. H. on all accounts. I do know that they are taking new clients as of a month ago. It is a process to get in to see him.

When you said you would like herbs, I'm going to jump on the same band wagon and say that Dr. H in NY is definitely a good option.
