Tommy Hilfiger’s Daughter Fights Lyme Disease

Tommy Hilfiger--famous American fashion designer and founder of the popular menswear brand Tommy Hilfiger Corporation—is no longer the only Hilfiger standing in the “lyme-light”. Tommy Hilfiger’s daughter Ally Hilfiger has recently gone public with her excruciating battle with Lyme disease.

Ally Hilfiger’s Brutal Symptoms

From the age of seven, Ally has experienced the wide range of side effects Lyme disease can yield. If left untreated, symptoms usually worsen and become even harder to pinpoint. Eventually, Ally’s symptoms got so bad she resorted to using a walking stick to get around.

“I couldn’t put lotion on my legs because it felt as if I was being beaten with a baseball bat. I was like an 80-year-old woman,” says Ally of her debilitating symptoms. “It had taken over every single cell in my body and in my brain.”

For years, Ally dealt with severe headaches, muscle pain, and chronic fatigue. Flu-like symptoms pervaded her life on a consistent basis along with mild insomnia. Yet, despite her chronic and very real symptoms, Ally was dismissed by doctors left and right.

A Common Misdiagnosis

Like many Lyme sufferers, Ally dealt with the repercussions of the tick-born illness for years without proper diagnosis. After struggling with the symptoms of Lyme for most of her life, Hilfiger’s psychologist was the one to recognize the symptoms as possible indicators of Lyme. From there, she was referred to a doctor and properly diagnosed.

Ally states of the common misdiagnosis of Lyme, “a lot of people don’t understand what it feels like and they don’t believe it.”

Several doctor visits sent her home with the diagnoses of arthritis, exhaustion, and even growing pains. The misdiagnosis carried on for 14 years until Ally was properly diagnosed at the age of 21. Ally was then treated with long-term antibiotics which, as an aside, do not always permanently remedy long term infections.

Now, like many other celebrities coming forward with Lyme, Ally is hoping to use her experience to help others suffering from the chronic symptoms of Lyme disease.

The Rising Epidemic

As celebrities go public with their diagnoses, more and more people are beginning to recognize their chronic symptoms as possible indicators of Lyme disease. At LifeWorks Wellness Center, an alternative clinic for the treatment of chronic disease, the prevalence of Lyme-related cases has soared.

Frustrating misdiagnoses can lead many patients to do their own research. With a Google search of symptoms, and more and more awareness of Lyme, it’s starting to become a tiny bit easier for patients to figure out that they might be suffering from Lyme disease. Finding a competent doctor who can treat Lyme is the next challenge. Many doctors are not fully informed on the latest discoveries and protocols for effectively dealing with Lyme.

Caring for the Whole Body

At LifeWorks Wellness Center, we approach Lyme disease holistically. Using ozone and other therapies, we have been able to successfully treat Lyme patients without the use of antibiotics. Our treatment protocol involves several treatments where O3 (ozone) is administered via Biophoton Therapy & UVBI treatment. It is a well-known fact that many chronic disease including arthritis, high blood pressure, and even cancer have been linked to critically low oxygen supply within the body. By adding the supercharged oxygen back in, you are give your body the ultimate defense to fight this debilitating disease.

Although antibiotics have been used to successfully treat Lyme, long-term use—which is often recommended for long-term sufferers—also does wreak havoc on the body’s internal defense mechanisms. Ozone therapy not only treats Lyme, but also provides your body with the oxygenated environment it needs to wipe out secondary infections.

We have used ozone therapy to successfully treat many patients. It is both safe and effective. Read and view some first-hand testimonials.

At LifeWorks Wellness Center, we understand the effects of Lyme. If left untreated or worse, misdiagnosed, symptoms are exacerbated to the point where they affect your day-to-day functions.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
