Lyme disease is a complex medical condition that, without treatment, can become a significant health problem. And this is why ILADS doctors should be sought out in order to treat the condition properly once diagnosed.
What Exactly is an ILADS Doctor?
ILADS doctors belong to the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS). And this nonprofit society strives to provide sufferers of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses evidence-based care for their conditions.
ILADS doctors have a unique approach to the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease. And because this approach is both holistic and evidence-based, this provides for a more comprehensive diagnosis as ILADS doctors look for all possible sources beyond the obvious to narrow down the root cause(s) of symptoms.
Due to the fact that Lyme disease is such a complex condition, and because it affects people of all age groups, Lyme disease is best treated with regimens suited for each individual specifically. And this is why a holistic approach can be a powerful tool in the treatment of Lyme disease.
Treatment is often based on careful consideration of the following factors:
- Type of tick bite
- Length of time between bite and diagnosis
- Parts of the body affected
- Underlying health conditions
- Presence of other tick-borne illnesses
Because ILADS doctors have devised the only evidence-based approach to the treatment of Lyme disease and tick-borne illnesses, using this methodology, several types of treatment regimens can be implemented.
