I have dedicated my life and set out on a mission to bring together information and protocols to help heal the chronically ill when my wife Heather developed a near-fatal case of Lyme disease. I was able to bring together solutions that changed not only Heather’s life and my own, but that have changed thousands of lives ever since.
I know that finding the resources you need to heal from chronic illness can be overwhelming, but you don’t need the added stress of researching how to help yourself or a loved one. I put together some of my top resources to help you take care of your own health and wellness. There’s something here that can help just about everyone.
Helping people regain control of their health is my passion. These resources may not be the only ones you need to get well, but chances are, you’ll be well on your way. I am always learning, growing, and incorporating the latest knowledge and resources into my programs and protocols, so my top resources are dynamic in nature. Here are some of the top resources currently available.
Dr. Jay’s Top Resources for Healing Chronic Illness
1. Detox, Lyme and Health Podcast
My podcast, The Detox, Lyme and Health Podcast with Dr. Jay Davidson, was created for people struggling with chronic health conditions. It contains useful tips to help those with chronic illness look upstream for the source and root cause of their symptoms. Plus, there is a wealth of information about natural, complementary, functional, and sometimes a little unconventional, ways to regain your vibrant health. Topics include:
- Parasites, Lyme disease
- Heavy metals
- Latent infections
- And more
Use the Podcast tab on my website or open iTunes here to browse the podcasts and to subscribe and download them as well. These podcasts are great for listening and learning. Sometimes we just don’t want to read or stare at another computer screen to do our research!
2. How To Fix Lyme Disease (Book) by Dr. Jay Davidson
This book covers strategies, protocols, and tips for holistic, balanced Lyme treatment, learned and gathered both from years of working with Lyme patients, and my experience healing my wife’s chronic Lyme disease.
As all cases of Lyme are unique, the approaches and methods outlined in the book can be worked into each individual’s situation in different ways. An invaluable resource for anyone working to understand and heal from Lyme disease. Available here.
3. Dr. Jay’s One-On-One Coaching Program
My team of doctors in this personalized coaching service focus on identifying all the missing pieces associated with each individual’s health issues and creating a customized protocol to fix them. An official “diagnosis” is not necessary to work with a doctor.
In fact, some people may not have settled on an exact diagnosis, as many factors could be involved in their illness. The program can help with that, too! We can give recommendations and advice on what root causes you’re dealing with and how to begin healing.
We primarily work with cases that have the following:
- Unexplained health symptoms
- Toxicity, including heavy metal toxicity
- Biotoxic illnesses, such as Lyme disease & mold mycotoxicity
- Leaky gut & digestive disorders
- Hormonal issues
- Autoimmune conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis & multiple sclerosis
- Adrenal fatigue & chronic fatigue syndrome
- Thyroid problems
- Sleep issues
- Sensitivities to food, environment, supplements, etc.
Our team of doctors coach clients by customizing their protocols and guiding them as to what, why, when, & how to achieve optimum results. This is done with supplements, herbs, tinctures, home detoxing, mindset work, diet, & more.
If you value your health, are committed to growth, and are coachable, this may be the program for you. People can get well when they follow the protocols and dedicate time to healing. Our doctors work with clients across the world via video and phone.
Our doctors partner with you and act as an advocate on your healing journey. Our number one focus is getting YOU well. We are open to anything that is going to help expedite the process. For more information, Click Here.
It is important to us for you to learn the “why” behind any recommendations and protocols. Behind the scenes, my team of doctors and I are continually communicating and collaborating on different health topics and client cases. The team is constantly learning and staying in touch with the most cutting-edge research.
4. Dr. Jay’s At-Home Program
The “At-Home Program” is an online program that allows you to work at your own pace from the comfort of your home. You also get access to me personally via a private facebook group with purchase. This is a proven, step-by-step solution to help you heal from:
- Clogged drainage pathways
- Chronic infection (viruses and bacteria)
- Toxicity (heavy metals, pesticides, radiation)
- Mold (environmental and internal)
You’ll get a roadmap of solutions and how you can apply them in the right order of what to do, when, and how to:
- Identify the sources of your issues
- Calm down the symptoms using natural approaches
- Go upstream and removing those sources
This program is helpful if you are already working with a practitioner as well. You can gain a more in-depth understanding of what’s going on in your body so that you can ask questions and communicate more directly and efficiently with your practitioner to optimize results.
This program can help you or a loved one if you:
- Are not where you want to be with your health
- Struggling with chronic illness
- Want a more in-depth and detailed understanding of what to do and the “why” behind it
- Are interested in natural and holistic health protocols
- Can’t remember the reason you’re taking some specific supplements
- Trying to find all the pieces to the puzzle
- Feel isolated in your journey
- Feel overwhelmed or defeated
- Have met with countless doctors without achieving your desired results

5. The Best of Chronic Lyme Disease Summit
Lyme Disease is the fastest growing, vector-borne infectious disease in the United States and is now found all over the world. Research is continually finding previously unheard of species of ticks and possibly other stinging and biting insects that may carry Lyme disease pathogens, its pathogenic coinfections, and other dangerous organisms.
Indeed, vector-borne diseases like Lyme disease know no borders as they can easily travel in insects carried on humans, animals, foodstuffs, and more. Lyme and vector-borne diseases can affect anyone at any time.
After finding a solution and bringing my wife Heather, who was dangerously ill with the symptoms and fallout of Lyme disease and other chronic illnesses, back to where she is the healthiest she’s ever been in her entire life, I have now dedicated my life to helping others, too. People who are struggling with Lyme disease, coinfections, and chronic illness need vital information and support to overcome this terrible disease and start healing.
You and your loved ones deserve to be happy, healthy, and living fulfilling and satisfying lives. I have hosted three Chronic Lyme Disease Summits so far, and now I’ve taken the best of the best interviews and put them all in one place. This summit brings together many of the brightest minds and most committed professionals to share information and recommendations to overcome the threat and suffering this debilitating disease causes.
The Best of Chronic Lyme Disease Summit has 35 truly incredible interviews with Lyme disease experts. Together, we aim to educate you and arm you with the knowledge you need to heal from Lyme disease.
Plus, several of the expert speakers have offered access to their resources for FREE when you purchase access to the summit. They include:
- Dr. Jay’s 5 Things Your Doctor Should Know About Healing Lyme Disease E-guide
- The Most Powerful Vitamin to Kill Viruses eGuide by NaturalHealth365
- 1-2-3s of AIP eGuide from Sarah Ballantyne, PhD
- In the LymeLight: My Healing Journey eBook by Erin Elizabeth
- Candida from a Functional Perspective by Evan Brand

6. The Parasite Summit
Like it or not, most people are likely hosting one or more parasites. Parasites can enter your body through food, drink, contact with infected persons, and contact with infected pets.
These parasites can live within you for years, causing a myriad of health issues on their own. Additionally, they harbor pathogens, mold toxins, and heavy metals. It can be much more difficult to clear these things while they hide within parasites.
If you’re struggling with any of these issues, you may have parasites:
- Gastrointestinal problems, including pain/cramps, excess gas, bloating, constipation/diarrhea
- Infertility and hormone disorders
- Skin issues, including acne, itching, rashes
- Mental health conditions, including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, etc.
- Challenges with autoimmune disease recovery
I hosted the Parasite Summit, a collection of expert interviews to help you determine if parasites are silently impacting your health. Parasites aren’t just found in third-world countries. They’re very common in industrialized countries and could be silently hampering your health.
When you sign up, you get instant digital access to all 30+ audio presentations with the experts, including PDF transcripts of all the presentations. To access The Parasite Summit, Click Here.
7. Microbe Formulas
Microbe Formulas is the supplement company formed by myself and co-founder Dr. Todd Watts. The company aims to create supplements that work with the goal of restoring hope and health to the people who use the products.
There are supplements and protocols in the Microbe Formulas product line for the various phases of healing including:
Phase 1: Drainage
Phase 1 drainage is designed to get you started on the right path to detox. It’s meant to optimize your body’s elimination systems so that when a detoxification protocol is applied, your body will be prepared to eliminate the toxins and will not feel any adverse effects from them.
When your drainage systems are open are flowing freely, you should be able to continue living your normal life. Ideally, you’ll be symptom-free, able to sleep through the night, have a clear head, and remain stress-free. This may not always be the case, though, which is precisely WHY drainage is so important.
Drainage is the body-clearing pathway that moves things from places within the body to areas outside the body. For the body to effectively detox through these drainage pathways, they need to be open and clear.
If they’re not, everything that’s trying to leave your body will get stuck. When toxins become stuck and can’t exit the body, unpleasant and undesirable detox symptoms can result. That’s why it’s imperative NOT to skip Phase 1.
Phase 2: Immune Support
In Phase 2, or the immune support phase, the focus is on helping you get the more significant pathogens and parasites out of your system. Immune support supplements grab onto and pull out those big bugs.
These uninvited guests can carry things like mold, heavy metals, and chemicals inside of them, so they must be eliminated. Sometimes you’ll be able to see these big bugs, but only 30% of them are visible to the naked eye. So, it’s also typical that you won’t see anything come out.
Phase 3: Detox
Phase 3: Detox is designed to grab onto unhealthy chemicals and metals and clear them from the body. High levels of metals and chemicals are abundant in the environment and in our bodies.
The epidemic of elevated metal levels can be linked to the rise of industrial created inorganic metals that have been released into the environment; ending up in some foods, soils, water supplies, and the ocean. When they reach high levels in our bodies, our bodies become unhealthy.
Phase 4: Progress
In Phase 4, you can celebrate because you finally feel healthy. The journey may have been long and challenging at times, but you made it through. That doesn’t mean that it’s over, though.
Our bodies need regular cleaning and maintenance. And we may be able to improve our health and longevity with continued care. So, we recommend that you keep progressing forward and discover your optimal level of well-being.

8. Dr. Todd Watts
In addition to founding Microbe Formulas, Dr. Todd Watts and I do Zoom live presentations and Q & As together. Dr. Todd Watts has come to a place of helping others heal from chronic illness through personal experience. Dr. Todd launched his own exploration into chronic illness to heal himself.
Dr. Todd’s research helped him to understand that he needed to rid himself of the parasites within his body that were harboring Lyme disease pathogens. Once he took care of parasites and consequently, Lyme disease, he was on his way to eliminating his allergies, headaches, food sensitivities, and pain.
Dr. Todd has become one of my top colleagues and friends, and a tremendous resource, especially about parasites and protocols to eliminate them. Dr. Watts is also the Co-Founder and formulator of the practitioner line of Microbe products, CellCore Biosciences, a wholesale supplement company for practitioners that focuses on creating supplements that work.

Resources That Restore Health Through Employing Neuroplasticity
9. BrainTap for Brain Training Programs
BrainTap technology and programs are based on principles of neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity refers to the power of the brain to change and rewire itself to heal and form new neural pathways. BrainTap is designed to relieve stress, enhance focus and brain function, improve bad habits, and retrain the brain for positivity and balance.
A subscription to the BrainTap service is available on both Apple and Android devices. The service allows a user to stream dozens of different programs for anything they wish to achieve or improve, from stress reduction to better athletic performance to improved sleep quality.
You can take advantage of the unique programs based on the science and philosophy of neuroplasticity from anywhere—on work or school breaks or lunches, at home when relaxing, or when on the road traveling. Check it out and get a FREE TRIAL HERE.
Lyme disease and chronic illnesses have a detrimental effect on the brain. Neurological problems in chronic disease are way more common than you may think. Patients with these issues report difficulties with everything from concentration, to problems with anxiety and depression, and even long-term memory problems. An especially common condition is “brain fog,” a hazy, foggy or spacey feeling which makes it difficult for people with chronic illness to focus, recall memories, and commit new actions to memory.
According to BrainTap, their users regularly report these benefits which are helpful for chronic illness patients:
- Brain fog and negative mind chatter are reduced or eliminated
- Energy levels increase
- Relaxation states, including those which can contribute to healthy sleep habits, are promoted and established
- Unwanted habits and behaviors are reduced
- Productivity, memory, focus, and creativity are enhanced
- Overall quality of life improves
This program uses the concept of neuroplasticity to retrain the brain. It addresses the limbic system specifically. The limbic system in the brain is where old traumas are stored and continue to trigger the body into the constant stress, or “fight or flight” state. The DNRS™ focus is on rewiring the limbic system of the brain instead of chasing symptoms.
The Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ (DNRS) is a “drug-free, step-by-step, intensive limbic rehabilitation program that is taught from a platform of environmental awareness. Techniques used in the Dynamic Neural Retraining System™ are based on neuroplasticity therapy, which rewires the limbic system to build more functional neural pathways.”
Disorganized neural networks can occur during trauma and may cause deep protective mechanisms within the limbic system of the brain, prompting it to fire more rapidly and inappropriately. This yields a heightened chronic stress response that can affect many systems of the brain and body, especially those systems involved with emotion, sensory perception, and cognitive function. Additional symptoms may include:
- Chronic inflammation
- Poor memory
- Brain fog
- Digestive issues
- Lowered energy levels
- Numerous sensitivities
- Chronic pain
- And a host of other ailments
Functions such as detoxification, absorption of nutrients, or cellular communication may also become compromised.
DNRS™ participants are taught a practical, step-by-step process that involves visual, spatial, movement, language, and emotional restructuring exercises. These aim to regulate the chronic stress response and promote optimal health. This leads to a decrease in the firing of the limbic system’s threat and protective mechanisms, allowing for the formation of new neural pathways. You can learn more or sign up for a program here.
All the resources listed here for holistic, balanced healing are learned and gathered from years of working with chronic illness patients. As all cases of chronic illness are unique, this wide range of approaches and methods can be worked into you or your loved one’s healing journey in different ways. We sincerely hope these resources lead you to be the healthiest you can be.
