Solving The Mystery of Lyme Disease

Most of you swim along the stream. Some of you swim against the stream. 

Both require efforts and lead to exhaustion; one more than the other. Consider becoming the stream; become the water.

I was five years old when my Kindergarten class spent a day in the woods in the outskirts of Vienna, Austria. By the end of the day, my Kindergarten teacher informed my mother of a tick that was behind my right ear and urged her to remove it at home. However, for unknown reasons, the tick bite was forgotten by the time we got home. Within days I developed a very high fever and all the classic symptoms of Mengingitis. I was hospitalized for 7 weeks and had to endure painful punctures of the cervical spine which to this day, I vividly remember. This is clearly an acute reaction to a tick bite and can be life threatening.

Elite athlete, author and fully recovered Lyme sufferer Perry Fields interviewed Silvia Binder on Lyme Disease in 2012



KD is a 15 year old teen who was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 6th grade (Spring of 2002).


For the next two years she took a series of antibiotics including Rocephen (intravenously) and many other antibiotics without any result. Her liver became inflamed from the antibiotics and another type was then prescribed - also without any results. KD also experienced cyclical vomiting and would lose 12 pounds over the course of 7-10 days during the two year period of intensive antibiotic treatment. This would occur every other month. She saw several specialists and no one could offer any explanation. It caused her to miss many days of school. Several times she was hospitalized for the pain she experienced in her stomach. None of the endoscopies were able to reveal the cause. She was extremely fatigued and had severe intestinal/stomach pain which did not resolve with any treatment.

AD, a 6-year old autistic child was brought to the office with evidence of a tick bite.


The parent explains that the child has had fever for several days and is much less active. Child wants to sit in the mother's lap most of the time. The child also had a rash that was on the back of the child's neck and upper body. He received treatment with Ondamed during the visit in June 2004. AD returned to the office the next day for another treatment. His parent stated that the child's fever broke the previous night after the Ondamed treatment. His rash was gone and his activity returned to normal. AD received a total of 5 treatments, one each day for the whole week (Monday-Friday). He did not receive any treatment over the weekend. He remains well with no evidence of Lyme disease. His laboratory analysis confirmed that he in fact had Lyme disease. (Case Study conducted by Dr. Shari Lieberman)

MB is a 49 year old female diagnosed with Lyme Disease and co-infection with Babesia and Bartonella in October 1991.


Her symptoms rapidly progress from fatigue to multiple sclerosis (MS) like symptoms such as numbness and tingling in the extremities. In January 1992 she received intravenous (IV) Rocephin for 3 months after which time she was hospitalized for three and one half weeks for a severely low white blood cell, neutrophil and platelet count. This was a side effect due to the drug treatment. She was given a challenge test to see if there was another antibiotic regimen she could tolerate. She was then given Primaxin via IV administration for approximately five and one half months. She developed antibiotic resistant bacteria (C. difficile) and was given Questran as treatment. She also developed dumping syndrome from the Primaxin. She developed nausea which was managed with Compasine administered both IV and as a suppository for one week. She was also given Minocin, Biaxin and Amoxycillin on and off until approximately June 1994. She often had to stop treatment due to the side effect of a very low white blood count. Despite the massive antibiotic treatment her symptoms did not improve. She would get a little better for a short time and then her symptoms would return. She also developed more symptoms during the years of antibiotic treatment including knee pain in both knees, left hip pain and debilitating neuropathy. Her doctor told her there was nothing else he could do for her. (Case Study conducted by Dr. Shari Lieberman)

MN is a 35-year old male diagnosed with Lyme disease in April 2000.

A tick probably bit him when he was living in Martha's Vineyard from March to October 1998. While he never developed a rash, he slowly began to develop symptoms. They included multiple sclerosis (MS) like symptoms including numbness to the extremities, fatigue, difficulty walking, neuropathy, memory loss, dyslexia (which he did not have previously), headaches, arthralgia, muscle atrophy and spinal pain. These symptoms became debilitating and he visited 10 different physicians. He had various diagnoses that included MS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and clinical depression. He was not getting better. MN was getting worse.
