To Chronic Lyme Disease Sufferers Who Desperately Want to Get Well... But Just Don’t Know What to Do
We refer to Western medicine as conventional or traditional—the care provided by the “real doctors” that your insurance covers. Pretty much anything other than drugs, surgery, physical therapy, or psychiatry is labeled alternative, or its slightly less insulting cousin, complementary medicine.
Did you know medical errors and prescription drugs have consistently ranked in the top 3 leading causes of death in America? Despite this fact, Americans function on ill-conceived faith that our country’s mainstream drug-based approach to chronic illness will get us well.
How’s that working out? Could it simply be that most folks do whatever health insurance pays for? Many nations that have lower health care costs and better health have been utilizing so-called alternative methods all along. Acupuncture has been successful for several thousand years. Homeopathy has been successful worldwide for over 250 years. Queen Elizabeth of England (born in 1926) has had a homeopath as her personal physician, as did the Queen Mother (who lived to 102).
I don’t apologize for providing treatment approaches that are not labeled conventional. When prominent medical research institutions proclaim the conventional approach actually kills more people than actual diseases… I couldn’t be prouder to be successfully treating people using extremely unconventional (yet safe, legal and ethical) means.
I understand why most of my patients seek me out of desperation—the conventional medical tests and treatment their health insurance DID pay for, were tragically ineffective. For many, the wretched side-effects of long-term antibiotics left them in a further debilitated state of health than from the Lyme alone. What a tall task they ask of me.
I get emails from people from around the country and abroad, asking me if I can help them. Some people’s main concern is whether or not insurance will cover treatment. Please don’t “shoot the messenger,” but nobody’s insurance pays for legitimate wellness care. It’s not my practice or methods; it’s the system.
American insurance does not pay for wellness care or prevention; it pays for illness and injury care, which includes mainly prescription drugs and surgery. Vitamins, minerals, nutritional supplements, herbal remedies, and homeopathic supplements are simply NOT part of our medical insurance system, sorry. Homeopathic remedies have been covered by health insurance in many other countries.
Just what exactly is “alternative” about these safe and effective systems?
Are you still convinced that the deteriorated, overused, and outdated system of killing germs with chemicals is the only answer for Lyme disease? Ifyou are, my treatment approach is definitely not for you. The treatment approaches I use can do absolutely no harm to the patient. What “conventional” approach can make that claim? Intravenous antibiotics? Narcotics? Antidepressants?
Perhaps you must ask yourself, “How long will I suffer before trying a different treatment approach?”
Have you considered how much quality of life Lyme disease is costing you? Our medical establishment has an impressive appearance of authority and effectiveness. Magnificent looking facilities and doctors with impressive academic credentials, well-funded research journals and high tech websites all contribute to this perception. Television and movies also give us the impression that doctors can always run tests and find out the facts about any health problem. It is not the reality.
Of course, modern medicine has produced incredible results for many injuries and illnesses. I am personally grateful for such. But despite much of this magnificent progress, certain illnesses still plague us. Even worse is the fact that some ailments such as Lyme, are simply swept under the rug. In my opinion, Lyme disease is a condition for which doctors and researchers don’t have the time, inclination or resources to be bothered. Its management doesn’t fit the American medical system’s model of care. As a result, it seems that most physicians either remain ignorant of it, or deny its existence altogether. It also seems that the majority of doctors who do acknowledge it are stuck in a singular approach treatment mindset—that bacteria need to be bombed with antibiotics… and that’s that. This is sadly, an irrational, antiquated and often disastrous approach.
A decade or so ago. I received an email from a desperate woman from the Eastern Shore of Virginia, who has been on antibiotics for 10 years, 10 months out of every year. Do you think 100 months of antibiotics costs a few bucks? Is she well? No… and I never had the chance to even meet her to try help her because she died! The doctor who some think was some kind of hero for being willing to acknowledge Lyme disease did not suffer any consequences.
Why do people do this? I assume it’s because they believe they have no choice. That’s why it is my duty to inform the public that there is another way.
Yes, is indeed a complementary and alternative treatment approach. I am not an infectious disease doctor. The great news is that I am not doing anything controversial, nor am I practicing outside accepted guidelines or scope of practice. I am not participating in the Lyme controversy.
I am interested only in sharing what got my family well with other people. If you are uncomfortable with the notion of a holistic practitioner who cannot state that he is directly treating Lyme, I understand. I don’t expect my ideas on the subject to be accepted as gospel.
The chronic effects of tick-triggered illness are real. Lyme disease (as well as dozens of other infectious diseases, by the way) is under-reported, under-diagnosed, under-treated, mis-treated and severely mis-understood. It is my mission to inform and assist those poor souls who are suffering. Your choice is to keep trying or give up and suffer.
I offer my services not as a cure, a promise, or guarantee, but rather an extraordinarily safe, affordable, and consistently effective option. I provide a reasonable chance—realistic hope to get better.
I wrote this article knowing that the general attitude of our health care system towards chronic Lyme disease is principally one of denial. There are prominent hospitals and medical facilities that will actually deny acceptance to Lyme patients! There is even a malicious attitude towards practitioners such as me, who question the medical establishment.
The question is, who are we supposed to be serving? Other doctors? The government? Hardly.
The Liebell Clinic doesn't treat Lyme disease; we treat PEOPLE who have it!
My wife Sheila and I know the inside story of Lyme disease (and then some). At the Liebell Clinic, we take care of PEOPLE… NOT test results, NOT microbes, and NOT diseases. If you do not yet fully understand the difference, we will help you understand.
The Liebell Clinic offers realistic hope for people who have either been diagnosed with chronic Lyme, or think they should be.
My family’s recovery from Lyme was just the start. Since 2009, our “no direct Lyme treatment” approach to treating people victimized by Lyme has been helping people from coast-to-coast and abroad.
Pick our brains! Dr. Don and Sheila Liebell know how to help people conquer Lyme without antibiotics.
Sheila may not have the letters, “Dr.” in front of her name, but Liebell Clinic patients say knows more, is more helpful, answers tough questions, and is more capable of helping than most physicians folks previously encountered!
You are welcome to call the Liebell Clinic and speak to Sheila with questions at (757) 631-9799. You may also email us directly by using the contact form below.
Please, do us a favor: do NOT ask questions about antibiotics. We have nothing to do with them on any level with any patient's care. Our views about them, and the facts supporting them are expressed throughout this website. I am licensed by the Virginia Board of Medicine to practice acupuncture and chiropractic, and provide natural supportive supplements.
The Liebell Clinic does NOT prescribe medications, nor is it appropriate for us to advise patients (or prospective patients) whether to take them, or not.
Our stance on long-term antibiotic usage is for general discussion, and is not intended as treatment advice for any individual.
We urge ALL patients and prospective patients, both verbally and in writing to pursue conventional medical evaluation, if they have not done so already. Also, please do not ask us questions about insurance. Bio-energetic supports are not covered by American health insurance. True wellness care is not part of the system. It is a disease care-based system of insurance coverage. Don't shoot the messenger, thanks!
Our treatment is affordable, and we arrange payment plans, if necessary for supplements. If you would like to become a Liebell Clinic patient, you may simply call our office to arrange a consultation. It would be our privilege and joy to help you too—in the fight to overcome the chronic effects of tick-triggered illness.
Many have called Mrs. Liebell "Doctor Sheila" because of her great health knowledge & advice!
