Lyme Disease Treatment - Treating Protocol for Lyme Disease

Lyme Disease Treatment

Lyme disease is treated with antibiotics. Since the organism, which causes Lyme has become increasingly hardy over the past thirty years, the treatment time is usually eight to ten weeks. If the bacteria is not completely eliminated, the symptoms will return. When selecting a physician to treat the disease, make sure he or she knows that contrary to what the American Academy of Pediatrics advises, it takes more than a three week course of lyme disease antibiotics to eradicate the disease in a child.

Dr. Charles Ray Jones, who is the world's leading pediatric specialist on Lyme Disease, says that about 90% of his practice is comprised of patients with the disease. Although he is 73 years old and could retire, he works tirelessly because his services are so desperately needed.

This kind and dedicated Lyme Disease doctor and specialist works ten hours per day, seven days per week and lives in an apartment above his office. He is currently training other doctors to diagnose and treat the disease. After learning of Dr. Jones’ commitment to his patients’ wellness, I concur with medical writer, Valerie Andrews, who calls him the "Albert Schweitzer of Lyme kids."

Although the disease is spreading quickly, awareness, precautions, daily tick inspections and Lyme disease treatment can put an end to needless suffering.

To contact Dr. Jones, call (203) 772-1123. Dr. Jones is willing to speak with your pediatrician and advise him or her as to how to diagnose and treat Lyme disease. You can also contact the Lyme Disease Foundation at 860-525-2000.
