Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is spread through the bite of one of several types of ticks. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash that looks like a red “bulls-eye." ( 20-30% of persons infected, however, do NOT show that symptom.) If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system.
Typically, a diagnosis of Lyme Disease means rounds and rounds of strong antibiotics which kill of the good gut bacteria which are a major contributor to a healthy immune system.
However, I have found it is nothing more difficult for the body to eliminate than any other stressor such as heavy metals, and it does not have to be a scary chronic condition. In fact, often the reason people cannot get over their Lyme infection completely is BECAUSE they have heavy metals or other toxicity suppressing their immune system. Once those are removed it is quite easy for the immune system to get rid of the infection.
Lyme seems to have both a bacterial and a parasitic component, and antibiotics only address the bacteria portion. When I work with Lyme clients, we address both components, providing plenty of support for the lymphatic system to clean out all the junk, and clients start feeling better right away.
In clients with a history of Lyme (that has been treated), I find they generally do have a low level of Lyme remaining in their body due to other toxins being present. Within a few months of being on their customized nutrition program the infection is able to go away completely.
Top Reasons for Lyme Disease to take hold
Low immune system
Poor overall health
Heavy metal toxicity
Taking antibiotics CAN kill the bacteria, but they also pull down the immune system by killing good helpful gut bacteria (which helps us break down food properly and assists the lymphatic system). Also, antibiotics do not kill the cysts, and it is possible for the bacteria to change form to avoid being killed.
Know this: Infections cannot exist in a perfectly healthy body; they only take hold in an unhealthy body that cannot fight them off.
It is vital to become healthy if you wish to eliminate Lyme Disease. The best way I know to make that happen is to get tested and find out what stressors are affecting your immune system and various organs and discover the exact supplemental support that will get rid of them over a couple of months and put health back into your body.
Lyme Disease is NOT something you have to live with or suffer: give your body what it needs to build it up; take away toxicity that is hampering it; then the all natural remedies will work perfectly!
