A note about Natural Lyme Disease Cure - Prevention Tips, Home Remedies and Treatments for Relief
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.
Of course, in most cases, prevention is the key to the cure.
Tips for Prevention
Steps can be taken in order to prevent Lyme disease from developing in the first place. Avoiding tick bites and removing ticks immediately after you find them on your body is important. In addition, covering your legs and arms when hiking in wooded areas is also important. Some people find it useful to stuff their pant legs down into the top of their boots in order to prevent ticks from getting under the fabric in their pants and attaching themselves to the skin.
There are more steps for prevention which are important as part of natural Lyme disease cures.
When coming in from the outside, especially in the summer months, doing a complete body search, including the head, can be important. Ticks tend to plant themselves in creases, so be sure to check the stomach area, as well as under the arms and in around the waistline.
If you suspect that you might have ticks on your clothing, then placing them in the dryer for 15 minutes can help kill the ticks that might be hiding in folds. You should also check your pets when they come in from outdoors, as pets can carry ticks on their fur which can fall off and then attach themselves to humans.
If you find a tick attached to your body, use tweezers to remove the tick. Try to get the tweezers as close to the mouth as possible to ensure that you get the entire insect off your skin. Try not to squeeze the tick, or else harmful bacteria could be released into your skin. Despite what you might have heard growing up, using a match or a lighter to burn the tick off your skin is dangerous, especially if the tick is still attached to you.
And, as part of a natural Lyme disease cure, if you find a tick that has become attached to your body, then it is important to watch for symptoms of illness. In the early stages, Lyme disease can appear as a flu or cold. You might experience muscle aches, fever, chills, joint pain, and fatigue. In addition, you might notice a large circular rash appearing around the tick bite.
However, you might also not experience any of these symptoms, or only a few of them.
Natural Treatments and Home Remedies; Herbs and Herbal Remedies
How about natural remedies to use as Lyme disease cures?
Natural treatments can help relieve some of the common symptoms associated with the disease. Vitamin C, for instance, can help your body build up immunity, which could be helpful in finding relief from the flu-like symptoms associated with the disease. This nutrient is thus a very useful part of any natural Lyme disease cure.
Probiotic supplements containing Lactobacillus acidophlius can help offset some of the side effects associated with taking antibiotics. Most physicians will prescribe a dose of antibiotics for patients with Lyme disease, but the probiotics can be helpful in preventing diarrhea and yeast infections.
Another helpful part of a natural Lyme disease cure is green tea extract, which taken in 250 to 500 mg a day can have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. You can also purchase leaves, which can be made into tea, as well. Ginkgo biloba extract can be useful for its antioxidant and heart health benefits, too. In extract form, it could be taken in doses of 40 to 80 mg 3 times per day.
Cat's claw and Reishi mushrooms both have anti-inflammatory properties. Olive leaf and garlic, on the other hand, have antifungal and antibacterial properties that are helpful in killing harmful microorganisms and boosting the immune system.
As you look for a Lyme disease cure, know that this ailment is about 95% curable when it is treated in its early stages.
