A note about Lyme Disease Alternative Treatments - Tips, Herbs, Herbal Remedies
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
If that is the case, it's time for you to seek other forms of treatment for Lyme disease which will be just as effective as antibiotics, without causing the potential side effects of these mainstream medicines.
Herbal Remedies and Formulations
There are some herbal formulations which are being used as Lyme disease alternative treatments. These have been found to be effective for many people, but you will need to make sure that you are not allergic to any of the herbs being used.
One common recommendation is to use different formulas at different stages of the illness. For instance, one form of treatment recommends that you use a formula of Propolis resin, combined with Echinacea, red root and Licorice root on most days, while alternating with a formula of Lomatium root combined with Witch hazel, elderberry and Prickly ash for the first week or so of the disease, and follow with a formula of Waltheria root combined with Osha root, American ginseng root, and Artemisia annua toward the end of the disease.
Other alternative treatments - Useful herbs and herbal remedies
There are other Lyme disease alternative treatments commonly used by holistic medicine practitioners which you might be interested in.
For instance, many alternative health practitioners recommend eating several cloves of raw uncooked garlic daily to help you get rid of Lyme disease. Garlic has strong antibacterial properties which will directly attack and kill the bacteria which cause Lyme disease, so if you have this condition, you might want to consider adding garlic to your diet for a while.
Other than fresh garlic, which is best, garlic supplements (pills, capsules) may also be helpful.
On top of being a potentially effective Lyme disease alternative treatment, garlic also has many other nutritional and health benefits.
Olive leaf extract is said to be a natural antibiotic, which is great if you are working to fight Lyme disease and many other illnesses. This extract also has strong antibacterial and antiviral properties, so it might be good to have it in your medicine cabinet all the time.
In fighting a Lyme disease bacterial infection, or for that matter any type of infection, Echinacea is an herb which would come in useful, as it is an excellent immune booster. This herb is typically taken through capsules, teas, or tinctures.
Like garlic, Echinacea is not only a useful addition to your Lyme disease alternative treatment protocol, but also to your overall health-boosting regimen.
There are a number of herbs with potent antibacterial effects, and these include licorice, oregano, rosemary and thyme. Some or all of these herbs can be used to concoct a natural remedy in the form of an herbal tea, to form another of the potentially useful Lyme disease alternative treatments.
Other Tips and Pointers
A big part of battling Lyme disease infection, or any infection, is to keep your immune system functioning at peak condition. Consume plenty of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, drink lots of fresh organic juices, have regular exercise, manage your stress, sleep well at night, and do what you can to detoxify your body with detoxification and cleansing programs. These are important aspects of Lyme disease alternative treatments, too.
If you have Lyme disease, it's important to catch it and treat it as early as possible, so that you can ensure that the bacteria is killed and you won't suffer from any long term effects of this disease, such as arthritis, heart or nervous system problems, or potential mental difficulties. By knowing what the signs and symptoms of Lyme disease are and being able to identify them, you can catch and treat this ailment as quickly as possible, thereby preventing long term detrimental effects on your health and body.
To undertake Lyme disease alternative treatments, it is a good idea to work with a natural health care practitioner, or a medical doctor who is holistically inclined.
