I was bitten by a tick a year ago in Lewes East Sussex and then a blood test in late September confirmed acute lyme. I've had all the classic symptoms for a year now and am not feeling any better despite 3 x courses of doxycycline and improving blood test results - the NHS have basically washed their hands of me now. I am now on a course of Chinese herbs, prescribed by a very respected Chinese doctor in Highgate, but I have not seen any improvement in my general wellbeing after a month of treatment. I am not exactly sure the ingredients of the herbal tea though I know it includes sweet wormwood. He is also doing some acupuncture which relieves some symptoms for a day or so but then I'm back to square one.
I was wondering if there was anyone out there who benefitted from the Chinese medicine approach. If so, how long did it take to feel better? This is almost a last resort for me and I'm getting increasingly concerned that it's not making me feel any better, so would love to hear any comments on this. Thanks.
