Lyme Disease Awareness Month - Optimum Health Report #377

Lyme Disease Awareness Month - Optimum Health Report #377

Dear Readers,

Greetings all!

We received this testimonial this week.

I want to thank everyone at LifeWorks for all the caring treatments I received during my 6 weeks of treatment.  I had been to many doctors in VT and NH knowing in my heart I had Lyme.  Every test I had come back negative (I was told I had Fibromyalgia).  While I wasn’t as sick as some with Lyme, I knew I had it.  Being a very active personal all my life, I wasn’t even able to walk a half mile or stand for long periods of time without being in excruciating pain.  The way the disease works, I knew it was only a matter of time before it would be more debilitating. I was going to be in Florida for the winter, so I started googling Lyme specialists and Dr Minkoff was the first to show up.  I did my research, then made an appointment.  I started treatment for what I was sure I had – Lyme!  (Dr. Minkoff confirmed).  I did 6 weeks of treatment and feel great, without antibiotics.  It is not an easy treatment, but oh so worth it.  I am working to regain my strength and know I will be back hiking again soon.  I miss all the great people at LifeWorks, staff and patients.  Thanks for giving me my life back.”

Have a great week,

Dr. David I Minkoff, MD

Lyme Disease & Antibiotics

Lyme Disease Treatment

Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne illness in North America and Europe and is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. Deer ticks typically carry the bacteria, which they spread to humans while feeding on their blood, but other insects including mosquitoes are also implicated.
