I also developed P.O.T.S. This is not uncommon for lymies. A Naturopath who is skilled in treating lyme patients would certainly be acceptable, if you prefer to go alternative, but this would probably also be "out of pocket". I would be cautious of other docs who say they treat lyme but are not LLMDs. Most infectious disease, RA, etc. docs are not trained or skilled in handling this infection, even though they may tell you that they are. We have all been down that road!

How important is your health to you? Unless you opt for a protocol like Salt/C or an herbal regime, which are certainly great choices as well, you will have to expend $ to get the help you need because lyme specialists are expensive and almost never covered on insurance.

I wish you the best in figuring this out.
