Jill's adventure with Lyme Disease began in 2010, some six years before our first consultation, or at least that is what she thought. It first manifested as muscle stiffness, severe indigestion and tremendous fatigue. As with so many cases of Lyme, her condition was not correctly diagnosed initially. Jill was told she had GERD (gastric reflux) and had surgery for that. Perhaps because her sister was diagnosed with Lupus (the autoimmune illness Systemic Lupus Erythematosus or SLE), she too was told that was the problem and was treated for it. Nothing seemed to help.
Amongst the various treatment methods that have proliferated in response to the ongoing epidemic of Lyme Disease, homeopathy has a unique and valuable place. It is distinguished by a number of attributes, chief amongst them being flexibility, individuality and, to coin a term, 'constitutionality'.
People afflicted with Lyme present in various stages of the disease. The homeopathic practitioner has at his or her disposal a vast array of medicines that allow for a great deal of flexibility in prescribing the most appropriate remedy for each stage.
