  1. Hi- I appreciate what you folks are doing. I believe some time ago you sent me the name of an ilads Dr. in San Diego…it was a female. Well my wife passed away and anyhow I lost the name of the Dr. I live in Phoenix area and there is an ilads Dr. I am going to Dr. F. and nothing is happening. Would appreciate any help you can give. Thanks, Allen

    1. Hi Allen, We dont have lists of doctors ourselves, but we just suggest you email the organizations listed on this post as they have LLMD lists. Also you might want to read through this post as it lists support groups you can join in California or Arizona (online groups) and they would certainly have names of doctors for you in your area.

      I am so sorry about your wife. Was it from Lyme disease? My condolences to you. <3

      Support groups in California

    2. Try Dr. M at Lifestream. Off of Bell road. He is ilads trained and as a LOT of us Lymies being treated by him. Good luck!


    I got a tick bite back in April. Tests came up negative and I had the 3 week treatment of doxycycline. After treatment I began getting sick again. (I’m going in dead-end circles to find a doctor willing to treat me). My symptoms have quickly become SEVERE and ever changing. From severe Neuro symptoms, heart palpitations, vision distortion, swelling in body parts that move to different parts of my body, head pressure, migrating pins and needles, tremors, twitching in bridge of nose and other parts of the body, severe pain under right rib, on and off fevers for two months, vertigo, ect.. I’m am rapidly debilitating and if I don’t get treatment soon I’m scared of what’s next to come. My children need there Mom back! if anyone can direct to a doctor willing to treat this PLEASE email me. Thanks in advance. I am 1000% certain this is all resulting from this tick bite, 100% healthy until this tick came into my life.

  3. Hi – I live in Australia and the word Lyme’s does not exist. As far as the medical field are concerned Lyme’s is to be ignored. Doctors are not trained only be told that they do not need to study as does not exist – only in USA. They will not even accept ‘Acquired Lyme’s’ which is unbelievable considering how many people travel to the USA and return to Australia. In 2005 I traveled to the USA and recall an sudden itch on my back shoulder blade while seated on the plane before departing Florida. Didn’t think anything of it until a few weeks later when my husband noticed this large unusual oval rash on my back shoulder blade. I was surprised to see (using hand mirror back on to bathroom mirror) & then remembered the itch I had on the plane and put it down to that even though I thought I had only rubbed it from the initial itch reaction & hadn’t aggressively or constantly rubbed it to cause such a huge rash. Soon after the rash became very itchy – extremely itchy that it drove me to the GP. I advised I’d recently traveled as I’d read you need to let your GP know however he dismissed the rash and suggested to buy some calamine lotion. At the pharmacy they asked to see the rash and was shocked. They said the rash was unusual & didn’t recognise as appeared to be fungi due to round marking however could still be bacterial/viral so they gave me a all-rounder lotion which was such a blessing and the rash soon disappeared. From this day forward, now 10 years, I health has suffered immensely. I lost my job of 13yrs due to boss believing I was lying about my constant ailments. I only recently was told by an alternative GP that he most certainly believes I have Lyme’s however there is no testing available in Australia as, according to our AMA, it does not exist. I’m hitting my head against a brick wall trying to manage my health and believe it will kill me soon because the medics can’t comprehend the illness nor have the tools to diagnose it so I’m at a loss. Medics believe I have Fibromyalgia and tests have shown my immune system is non-existent however I now have Rheumatoid arthritis which I was told with FM you get the pain but don’t cause damage so have doubt if I do have FM. No one knows about Lyme’s here so can’t talk to anyone about it. I could cope with all the ailments but now I have severe tension headaches where it feels I have an octopus living on my head and it’s testicles swirls around like a ball of wool, tightening more and more until I think it kills me. No, I’m not crazy. Just because you can’t understand doesn’t make it real ‘cos it’s very real to me. I wouldn’t share this ‘what sounds crazy’ illness with you if I wasn’t desperate. If anyone out there can help me I would really truly really really appreciate it. (ps I was once a happy party goer – must change my email address 🙁

    1. Hey Linda, My name is Lisa and I run this site.. I also have Global Foundation with my partner Karen Smith who is from Australia. Please visit that link and see the support groups/websites related to the Australia and Lyme Disease. There are several Australian Facebook groups listed to for Lyme patients so you can meet others in your shoes and you guys can share info on what drs to go to. Sadly here is the US is not much better. In fact its not good anywhere in the world. Lyme is swept under the rug everywhere. It took me over 14 years to get diagnosed and over 100 drs.. then i had to pay out of pocket to go to an ‘underground” lyme dr.. and then the medical board investigated him, so i went to another and again the medical board invesigated him. Now im out of money and cant get anymore help. So its not much different here then there. Anyways.. check out that link and join us in the Facebook groups. Youll be surprised how many are from Australia! I sure hope you can find some answers..

    2. Please do not be offended, just a helpful hint for further investigation, our disease is Lyme Disease. I am sorry you are having so much trouble finding a Doctor, if you lived in the US, we could sure help you.
      It sounds like you need to come to the States and start with an LLMD. I hope you feel better soon. NS

      1. Hi. You state you can help find a LLMD in the U.S. I am getting sicker every day but the LLMD I see here in the Phoenix area is not really helping. I don’t mind traveling a ways if that is what it takes. Thanks, Allen

    3. Linda the only lonley
      I just read your post. Lisa h
      is a friend of mine and has a tremendous amount of lyme disease information, trust her.
      I don’t know why some US citizens are offended when people refer to lyme disease as “lyme’s” – you probably didn’t even understand.
      I’ve seen it a few times on Facebook support groups. Sometimes lyme disease can cause OCD behavior.
      I don’t know, she said “please don’t be offended” Why that little thing bothers some, I don’t know.
      Unless they live in Lyme, CT.
      Anyway, you don’t need to come here, I have a lot of friends in Australia who are getting treatment.
      What area do you live? I have a good friend in Adelaide – sp – ?
      Have you found a LLMD yet ?
      I get those rib tightening things too
      It does feel like wires wrapping around you.
      I can send you some info that might be very helpful for you.
      Do you have a Facebook account ?
      Lisa also has great videos on YouTube.
      Let me know if I can help you out.
      You are NOT alone !!!
      Love, gentle hugs ♡
      Carolyn Hamilton, Friend me on Facebook, mention Lisa h. So I remember you.

  9. New Research on how nanobacteria cause calcification in tissues that prevents antibiotics and other treatments from working. This nanobacteria commonly called Bartonella infection is very hard to detect and can only be detected using advanced methods. There is a newly developed method to overcome this nanobacteria calcification and once that is done treatments become much more effective.

    1. Hi DeDe Miller. Tried to find you on FB but there were tons of your name. Could you please be kind enough to contact me on FB….

    1. Hi, Debbie!

      I’m Michelle, and am seeking an LLMD for my mom, who is just starting the diagnostic process. The family practice doc my mom and I see here in Kansas City is fabulous, but is unfortunately (and understandably) out of her depth with regard to my mom’s ordeal.

      My research seems to indicate that a timely diagnosis and immediate commencement of treatment will decrease the likelihood of a chronic situation, so I tremendously appreciate any help you can offer.

      You didn’t specify where in Missouri your LLMD is located, but we’re desperate to find a doctor who can provide her the help she needs. I’m very interested in your referral.

    2. Just tested Positive for Lyme . Can you please give me away to get in touch with LLMD in Missouri? Thank you from Southern Illinois.
