Our Treatments


Following consultation and testing, an individualised treatment regime is designed for each patient. Usually these consist of an oral antibiotic or combination of antibiotics. Current antibiotics that are prescribed are well absorbed by the body and intravenous treatment is not required as a rule, although those who fail to respond to oral treatments may be recommended for such regimes.

Treatments last for one month or longer. In addition, advice about lifestyle and other supplemental therapies are given.

Lyme Disease:

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is spread to humans by infected ticks. Ticks are small, spider-shaped creatures that feed on the blood of mammals, including humans. The most common symptom of Lyme disease is a red skin rash that looks similar to a bullseye on a dartboard. However, if Lyme disease is left untreated, further symptoms can follow including:

  • a high temperature (fever) of 38°C (100.4°F) or higher
  • muscle pain
  • joint pain and swelling
  • neurological symptoms, such as temporary paralysis of the facial muscles

A person with Lyme disease cannot spread disease to another through normal social contact.

The ticks that cause Lyme disease are commonly found in woodland and heathland areas. This is because these types of habitats have a high number of tick-carrying animals, such as deer, mice and sheep.

Due to their breeding patterns, the tick population is highest in late spring and early summer.
