It can spread across your whole body. It can hide from and hijack your immune system, just like AIDS does. It can remain dormant, stealthily undermining your health for years.
Lyme Disease has been dubbed “The Great Imitator” for good reason. This insidious disease can disguise itself by mimicking many disorders. Chronic Lyme Disease symptoms can make you feel like you have the flu – causing headaches, muscle aches, joint pains, brain fog, memory loss, nausea, stomach ulcers, constipation or diarrhea, sore throats, rashes, fatigue, neck stiffness, chills, night sweats, shortness of breath, and vague neurologic symptoms among others.
This makes diagnosing and treating it difficult for conventional practitioners. And because it affects each person differently it’s often misdiagnosed and at the root cause of: Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Depression, Dementia/Alzheimer’s, or even menopausal fevers, sweats, and chills.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), nearly 300,000 new cases of Lyme Disease are diagnosed every year – so imagine how many go undiagnosed.
Many patients come to us after struggling for years with symptoms that conventional doctors overlooked or misdiagnosed. They often forget when their tick bite occurred, or don’t recall any tick bite at all, and we test for Lyme Disease years later.
To fully recover, they need to work with practitioners who won’t just hand them antibiotic prescriptions and send them home. Practitioners who take a whole-system approach.
