Horizon’s Health offers lyme disease treatment in Albany, NY for those looking for a more holistic approach to their health. We view healthcare in a functional and integrative manner that in some way differs from other practices.
Lyme disease is an invasive and chronic disease that usually comes from the bacteria of tick bites. It is extremely important that you get tested to confirm that you in fact have lyme disease. Early detection and the start of a treatment program is pivotal for the best possible outcome.
Horizons Health provides lyme disease treatment in Albany, NY. Albany is the capital city of New York as well as the county seat and largest city in Albany County. Albany lies on the west bank of the Hudson River and is just under three hours from New York City. We also serve Catskill, Clifton Park, and other surrounding areas.
As common as lyme disease is, there are many people who don’t quite understand this chronic illness. Here are a few frequently asked questions:
Lyme disease is spread by the bacterium of ticks. It is common for children to pick up ticks when playing outdoors in long grass or adults that hike or hunt in the woods. It is the most common of all the vector borne diseases in the country.
People associate the disease with a bullseye-like rash at the site of the bite three to thirty days after infection, although many people never experience the rash. Other common symptoms are: fatigue, headache, chills, and fever. These symptoms mimic many other health problems so it is very important you see a provider as soon as you sense something is wrong.
It is best to receive treatment and not take any chances. Lyme disease can leave long term effects on the nervous system[, the heart, and can even cause paralysis. We offer individualized treatment plans to help reduce long term effects.
You can avoid lyme disease by avoiding tick infested areas, wearing long sleeves and pants that can be tucked into your socks. If you know you will be in wooded areas or areas with long grass wear an insect repellent. When taking off your clothes always inspect your body from head to toe for ticks.
Horizons Health looks forward to working with you to create a lyme disease treatment plan that works for you. If you are looking for a personalized and integrative approach we are here for you. Give us a call today to schedule your consultation.
