Mary-Beth Charno MSN, RN, HN-BC, ANP-C is a certified nurse practitioner, using the intersect of functional and allopathic medicine to guide your healing journey.

One size does not fit all and this can’t be more true than when treating tick borne illness. The treatment journey is nearly as unique as one’s fingerprint. One of the most often prescriptions I write is PATIENCE. This can be a long journey forward. And it is rarely a straight path. It will take time to understand your unique presentation, your particular responses to various therapies; and to begin to recognize patterns. This will emerge only after consistent dedicated therapy. My goal for all my patients is to help you find, and sustain, enduring remission, and to live a life free from the daily migratory symptoms of Lyme illness. This will not be an easy path. And it will take everything you’ve got. But YOU CAN HEAL from Lyme.

Generally, my patients can expect to be in some sort of treatment, on average, for 12-15 months. Some shorter. Some longer. The initial visit must take place in person. Follow up’s thereafter can be done by telemedicine.

At the initial visit you will begin the process of what is called Stabilization. It generally lasts four weeks, will continue ongoingly, and will begin to address what you uniquely need to stabilize in order to prepare for treatment. It usually falls into one of the following areas: sleep, pain, gut, mood. Basic supplements are started. Pharmaceuticals may be prescribed. Lab work is ordered. Further diagnostics are ordered, if needed.

Your first follow up will take place 4-weeks later to review testing, assess stabilization, and proceed on the proposed treatment. Treatments can be any combination of pulsed polymicrobial therapy, dapsone protocol, disulfiram or herbals depending on many things such as duration of illness, laboratory data, what has been tried before, lifestyle, preference, and, of course, my expertise in treating thousands of patients.

You can expect to have follow up’s more often in the beginning of your treatment journey, which will allow for me to fine tune your protocol and steer you away from pitfalls, generally every 4-6 weeks. Less frequent as your body begins to heal. The use of safety labs are employed monthly to assess for toxicity and safety.

Hello. My name is Mary-Beth Charno and I am an integrative Nurse Practitioner. And I'd like to welcome you. And to honor you for the courage it takes to be a seeker. It's likely that you're here because you're not feeling well. Or perhaps you intuitively know there's a different way you wish to engage with your health. And this kind of deeper inquiry is not always easy. And often there's strong feelings, like fear and uncertainty. I understand this seeking because I, too knew there was a different way. A different way to practice medicine, and to engage with patients. And I've had to be brave, as well. And to trust my inner voice. For this way of practicing medicine is in contrast to the current medical paradigm of giving a pill for an ill, or promoting disease delusion. And I do this because I've seen how patients shift when they feel listened to. When interventions are not only pharmacologic, but include food as medicine, or movement, or rest. When bearing witness to someone's story, and designing a care plan which includes the patients preferences can be the most healing medicine. And this inspires me to continue to practice. To practice self-care so that I can show up whole, and present with you. As well as to continue my studies, for medicine is a both an art and a science, requiring inquiry and scientific rigor, and and to never stop asking the deeper question of "why?" Mary-Beth Charno, RN, MSN, ANP-C is a graduate of Stony Brook University with a Master’s degree in Advanced Practice Nursing, and Pace University with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. Mary-Beth worked for ten years in oncology. She...
