Treating Chronic Lyme Disease
Lyme disease is nearly impossible to be properly diagnosed.

The standard tests used today are often grossly inaccurate, whether an infected person tests negative, or an uninfected person tests positive.

As Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum puts it, it's about as accurate as just flipping a coin.

But, if you're experiencing widespread pain, fatigue, brain fog, or other neurological issues, you might be suffering from Lyme that has now become chronic.

Tune in as Dr. Teitelbaum joins Naturally Savvy host, Lisa Davis, to explain key factors in addressing Lyme disease, as well as other chronic conditions.
