Lyme Disease Treatment Step 1 of 10
Lyme disease is caused by bacteria which is spread by ticks and can be passed from an infected pregnant mother to her child. The most common sign of the infectious disease is an expanding area of redness on the skin that is neither painful or itchy and appears about a week after a bite. A few other signs of Lyme disease include fever, headaches, and tiredness. If not treated, symptoms can also lead to loss of ability to move one or both sides of the face, joint pain, neck stiffness, or heart palpitations. Those diagnosed with Lyme disease may experience joint pain and swelling months to years later. Aside from proper treatment, 10-20% of people may develop memory problems and feel tired for 6 months.
After 15 years of trying to discover an effective treatment for Lyme Disease, we now recommend a 10 step program for recovery, with a 98% success rate.
The first step we recommend to Lyme disease recovery is decreasing the presence of yeast or Candida species, in your system. Yeast are microscopic, single-celled organisms and can cause several diseases. Candida is a form of yeast and helps with digestion and nutrient absorption. A very small amount lives in your mouth and intestines but when overproduced, can cause a variety of health problems.
When there is an overgrowth of yeast within the intestinal tract, your immune function decreases, elevating allergy response and food reactivity. Too much Candida tends to lead to brain fog and is a factor for chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. It also has been associated with depression, PMS, sleep dysregulation, and irritability. Yeast overgrowth also increases the presence of biofilm activity which leads to greater difficulty in effectively treating Lyme and chronic bacterial or parasitic infections. Cost of probiotics averages $60 monthly depending on strength or quality of the product.
