Natural Remedies to Help Lyme Disease
Lyme disease comes from tick bites. Symptoms include a circular rash within 30 days of the tick bite which can reach up to 12 inches across. Symptoms may be like the flu with aches, fever, chills and headaches, with possible swollen lymph nodes. The second phase can have loss of facial muscle tone (sagging), stiff neck, and shifting symptoms (moving from part to part). The third stage is chronic arthritic-like condition of the large joints, especially the knees.
Modern medicine can effectively treat the initial bacterial assault (first stage) with antibiotics. The next stages, however, there are no effective medical treatments. Other ineffective treatments may include steroids which are suppressive and toxic.
The natural perspective of Lyme's is first diagnosing that it is really what you think. After the initial bacterial assault with its damage, the body is compromised and the immune system must be reset. This is done with systemic herbs, a cell salt solution and an appropriate homeopathic. The stage three effects are no longer a bacterial problem, therefore antibiotics won’t help.
