When Am I going to get better?
Each person is different. There is not one definite answer to this question. There is nothing definitive about Lyme and its treatments. You will likely have to try several different treatments to find one that works for you. There is no cure as of yet. But people go into remission. So just keep your hope and keep trying new things until you find “your thing” that works for you. There are several options such as antibiotics, homeopath, rife, hyperbarics, ozone, stem cell, diet changes and many more. It will take a lot of experimenting with different treatments to find what works for you.
