Treating Lyme Disease
Understanding how Lyme’s works and educating ourselves about it is vital to treating Lyme disease successfully.
Estimates suggest that roughly 300,000 people in the United States alone are diagnosed with Lyme disease every year. In fact, Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne disease in the entire Northern Hemisphere. Unfortunately for most people, treatments remain unsuccessful while the rate of reinfection climbs higher and higher.
In order to start treating an illness, you first need to know what exactly you’re meant to be treating! Lyme disease frequently presents a spectrum of symptoms, making it very tricky to diagnose. People often do not recall ever being bitten, and they may not have the characteristic Lyme rash that can develop after a tick bite.
This contributes towards the high rate of Lyme misdiagnosis. Lyme disease is often misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis (MS), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and rheumatoid arthritis amongst others.
The roads most travelled are not getting us there
The conventional treatment for Lyme disease involves courses of antibiotics. However, the rate of relapse and reinfection remains high, which means that the fight against Lyme disease is often a long and miserable one.
The trouble is that unless you know when you were infected, you cannot accurately determine the correct length of treatment. Antibiotics suppress immune function, so if the treatment is too long then you run the risk of side effects, such as yeast infections. If it is too short, then it may not destroy all of the bacteria, which leads to antibiotic resistance.
Natural alternatives offer a New Hope
Integrative doctors are getting far superior results when it comes to Lyme disease. This is because they focus on supporting and building up the immune system so that your body can take care of the Lymes all on its own! These doctors follow protocols that focus on healthy eating and they use natural therapies to purify the blood, detox and de-stress the body, and boost energy levels.
While intravenous therapies, such as IV Vitamin C, Ozone (Major Autohemotherapy) and IV antioxidants are hugely successful, it can be hard to find the doctors who are offering these treatments. And when you do find a doctor who can help, you have to travel to them for the treatments and consultations, which is not healthy for your wallet – especially with the high rate of reinfection that can make Lyme disease a life-long battle.
It can also be spread by other blood sucking or biting insects, which your pets could bring into your home. If someone in your family is infected with Lyme’s, then a mosquito that decides to nibble on them could pass it on to you if you’re next on the menu.
Because it’s so easy to get infected and reinfected, an ideal solution would be something that is non-invasive and easy to use and doesn’t require any kind of medical qualification to administer. Something that you and your whole family can do from the comfort of your own home, every day.
