Dr. Barkins' Experience with Lyme Disease


Dr. Barkins has personal experience with treating her own Lyme Disease. She got Lyme in Southern California (Encinitas) and had years of trial and error treatment approaches . She attended many professional seminars on the latest research on Lyme Disease, researched treatment protocols, and developed protocols using kinesiology, and intuitive skills for 3.5 years, in order to treat herself successfully. She treats many patients with Lyme, all over the U.S. Treatment of chronic lyme is one of her specialties, since she is an expert in specific and individualized herbal and natural treatment which Lyme Disease requires. It usually takes months for symptom control and can take years to decrease or eradicate the disease. But, healing can be much faster with personal health coaching and integrative treatment, i.e. a combination of the proper supplements, antibiotics, and other treatment modalities. 


About half the people who have been bit by a tick do not have any signs of the bite and are unaware that they have been bitten. Months or years later the symptoms may arise and at that point the diagnosis may not be obvious, since there is no sign of a tick. The bacteria can also be passed from human to human through blood, intercourse, the placenta in a fetus, and possibly other bodily fluids (more research needed). Many times it is found in families. 


Testing and Treatment for Lyme


Many times the Lyme bacteria does not show up on lab tests and symptom diagnosis becomes an important part of the medical exam. There can be hundreds of different symptoms ranging from mild to severe. If you have any chronic symptoms and a diagnosis has not been made, it is important that you get examined by Dr. Barkins to find out if Lyme is a possibility and to understand the best treatment. Without proper treatment, the bacteria can stay in the body for years.


The traditional medicinal protocol of only antibiotics, may not be successful with chronic Lyme. There are specific combinations of herbals, nutritional supplements, and/or homeopathics that can help you get well. Dr. Barkins developed her own testing and treatment protocol that worked for her and helps her patients.  


If the Lyme bacteria is left in the body and the disease becomes chronic, neurodegenerative and autoimmune diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, and Rheumatoid Arthritis can result. This can arise from the inflammation and tissue damage caused by the bacteria.. The bacteria can cross the blood brain barrier and cause damage to the brain tissue with inflammation. Once the damage is done, it may not be reversible, so it is important to find and treat, as soon as possible.
