Tom Moorcroft, DO – Healing Lyme Disease Holistically

“Lyme disease is the #1 vector-borne illness in the United States… The nymph deer tick, which is the size of a poppy seed, transmits about 95% of Lyme… A tick can travel from your feet to your head in 60 seconds.” -Tom Moorcroft, DO

I have to admit, blood-sucking ticks and tick-borne illnesses like Lyme disease kinda freak me out… Lyme can be extremely debilitating. And I would like to avoid it! That’s why I’m so glad to have found Dr. Tom Moorcroft.

Dr. Tom Moorcroft treats some of the sickest, most sensitive patients suffering from chronic Lyme disease, tick-borne co-infections, mold illness as well as children with infection-induced autoimmune encephalitis. He focuses on optimizing the body’s self-healing systems in order to achieve optimal health with simple, natural interventions; utilizing more conventional approaches when needed.
