In January 2008 I was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease. It was a relief to get an answer to the multiple disabling physical problems that I’d been experiencing for more than four years. Unfortunately, finding a cure to the disease has been as difficult as finding the diagnosis. Lyme disease is often misdiagnosed and when left untreated can develop into a host of problems including arthritis. For me, the arthritis occurs in my spine, hips and lower back, but it is not just in joints. The inflammation is in every tendon, fascia, and muscle. And then there are just the endless days of feeling crappy, in some way, shape, or form. The causative agent in Lyme disease is a bacterium called Borelli. However, there are also co-infections that come along: Ehrlachia, Bartonella, and Babesia. They invade every cell of the body and further complicate the hunt for the cure.
Fortunately, I have Brad Hill on my side as I seek treatment to get better. Brad began treating me for Lyme Disease in May 2008 and I firmly believe he is an answered prayer. Brad uses both his knowledge of acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine to help support my healing. Each weekly visit, Brad gently talks to me to find out how I’m really doing. What is going on in my heart, in my head, and in my body. Everything is connected. He finds the right treatment to support my body, in particular my battered immune system. He finds the right treatment to support my constitution. He finds the right words to soothe any anxieties.
Brad goes above and beyond your average health care practitioner. He has read up on Lyme disease, consulted others in the field, and shared useful information he has learned from other patients. Brad has prescribed Chinese Herbs that have tremendously helped my body to eliminate the toxins from my antibiotic treatment. His approach is specific yet holistic, and I wholeheartedly recommend Brad Hill for whatever ails you. – Anonymous
