I was too ill to survive without antibiotics by the time I was diagnosed and have NO DOUBT they were integral to my recovery. So this post is not to condemn anyone for using antibiotics. Antibiotics saved my life and were necessary for my healing! However, if your body is ready (or if you cannot tolerate antibiotics like many Lyme patients), there are many alternative/holistic treatments you can consider.
For me, after a few years of antibiotics, the holistic treatments I did helped me get to complete wellness.
