Webinar #2 of a 3-part series on Lyme Disease – presented by Dr. Alexis Chesney. 10-20% of patients who have been treated following conventional guidelines for acute Lyme disease continue to have symptoms. Called the “great imitator,” Lyme disease can be difficult to diagnose and treat. In this presentation, Dr. Alexis Chesney will review the two standards of medical guidelines (IDSA/CDC and ILADS) regarding testing and treatment for the blacklegged tick-borne diseases like Lyme disease. Targeted natural therapies including botanical medicine will be explained. She will also discuss the framework and critical thinking she uses in the diagnosis and treatment of tick-borne disease.
