There is no medical model for treating the growing epidemic of chronic Lyme disease in the US. Rather than relying on antibiotics, which are not effective for all patients with Lyme disease, Karima Hirani, MD, MPH treats patients with a more comprehensive, personalized approach by looking at diet, hormones, viral and bacterial infections, and environmental toxins, among other factors. In “Lyme Disease: The Biomedical Approach,” Dr. Hirani shares her holistic approach to treating Lyme disease, which includes low-dose immunotherapy and ozone therapy, as well as the successes she has experienced in her patients.
