How To Find A Lyme-literate Doctor

Christina Sfakianos was bitten by ticks, without realizing it, two consecutive summers and subsequently contracted Lyme disease. It got so bad that the New York City woman couldn’t even help her daughter with second grade math homework, not to mention the 30 pounds she lost from reactions to all the medications she had taken. She found relief by working with a Lyme specialist who monitored the care she received from an integrative practitioner. She shared her tips with WellBe on how to find a Lyme-literate doctor—and why working with an integrative practitioner is key.
