Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne illness in North America and is a bacterial illness that is spread by Deer tick bites and most likely any biting insect including mosquitos.

The east coast is a high-risk area, so you may have visited an area where Lyme disease is prevalent and if you think you have been bitten by a tick, you should seek immediate medical attention. Only a minority of insect bites leads to Lyme disease but the longer the tick remains attached to your skin, or the illness remains undetected, the greater your risk of getting the disease.

Lyme disease occurs in phases — the early phase beginning at the site of the bite with an expanding ring of redness like a bull’s eye. Lyme disease can also affect the skin, joints, heart, and the nervous system.

The chronic phase of tick borne diseases (Lyme disease) can be very difficult to detect and often misdiagnosed as MS, fibromyalgia, arthritis and psychiatric disorders. Standard treatments are often ineffective, costly and endless.

Delaware Integrative Medical Center is a Lyme literate institution and specializes in an integrative approach to the treatment of Lyme disease.
