Lyme Disease and How to Overcome it

From the Desk of Dr. Howard Robins at The Healing Center in New York City

What’s Wrong with Me?

Michael came into the office taking short baby steps. His 19-year-old arms and hands were bent and twisted into a weird, spasmodic position. His head tilted to the side, eyes nearly closed, with his face in a strange grimace. He spoke in short three-or four-word sentences. He had been suffering since he was 13 years old, and his father was ready to institutionalize him for the rest of his life. Until he became ill, he was a normal boy and a computer whiz. One day, he developed what appeared to be the flu, except it was in the summer and not the flu season.

Numerous courses of oral and intravenous antibiotics failed to work. His symptoms worsened over the years, and several Lyme disease experts later left him in the state in which he arrived at our office. He had late-stage Lyme disease.

The Cause

The disease, a worldwide pandemic, is named after the towns of Lyme and Old Lyme in Connecticut, where a large number of cases of Lyme disease were identified in 1975. The infection is transmitted to humans by the bite of infected ticks. The ticks are extremely small and often fall off the body after feeding, thus masking the fact that you’ve been bitten.

The Symptoms and the Difficulty in Diagnosis

Early symptoms may include fever, headache, fatigue, depression and a characteristic circular skin rash, which has a “bulls-eye” (target-like) appearance. The “bulls-eye rash” is thought to occur in only about 80 percent of infected patients, adding to misdiagnosis. Patients often experience flu-like symptoms, such as headache, muscle soreness, fever and malaise, which can also confuse early diagnosis.

Lyme arthritis usually affects the knees and feet, and, in some patients, can occur in other joints, including the ankles, elbows, wrists, hips and shoulders. Pain is often mild or moderate, usually with swelling at the involved joint. In some cases, Lyme disease kills.

The Answer

In many, but not all cases, antibiotics may eliminate the infection and its symptoms, especially if the illness is treated early. Unfortunately, even when caught early, antibiotics don’t always work. Many people are allergic to the drugs needed or develop sensitivity reactions and have to stop them. Delayed or inadequate treatment (often treating for too short a period of time) can lead to more serious symptoms, which can be disabling and even harder to treat—that is, unless medical ozone is used.

Over the past 22 years, intravenous medical ozone has been safely and effectively used to destroy and eliminate Lyme disease, even in late-stage infections. Often, when all hope is gone, even after years of suffering, medical ozone has proven successful. Usually in just a few weeks, symptoms begin to diminish, offering hope and finally giving relief. Intravenous medical ozone when it enters the body attacks and kills all Lyme disease-causing bacteria. It does it safely, with virtually no adverse reactions. In addition, it destroys all unwanted viruses, fungus, yeast, mold, harmful free radicles, and toxins, thus cleansing your body and boosting your own natural immune system. And did I say it does it safely and with virtually no adverse reactions?
