Lyme Disease Treatment: Step 5 of 10
If you have Lyme disease, you will probably have a “bullseye” shaped red rash, fever, headaches, muscle and joint pain, and fatigue. Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria that is found in ticks. If left untreated, this disease can make its way to the nervous system, heart, and joints. It is diagnosed based on symptoms and the possibility of being exposed to ticks.
Every year, the United States reports over 300,000 cases of Lyme disease. There is currently no vaccine to prevent the disease, however, can lead to a full recovery if caught in the early stages. At East Valley Naturopathic Doctors, we’ve spent years trying to come up with more effective treatment and have finally created a 10-step program to help our patients get on the road to recovery.
Starting herbal and prescription treatments for Lyme disease is the 5th step in our 10-step program to recovery for Lyme disease. We, after years of studying a number of Lyme protocols, have gathered a combination of mainly herbal protocols for Lyme disease treatment. After years of researching antibiotic protocols, we came to the conclusion that antibiotics just don’t work with Lyme disease and its co-infections. Fortunately, natural herbs combined with synergistic formulas have a strong antibacterial effect on Lyme bacteria. We have seen more success by treating Lyme disease naturally, than with any conventional prescriptions. Since Lyme disease is such a difficult infection to treat, this is very exciting news!
In short, step 5 is to follow a synergistic herbal program to get rid of Lyme and its co-infections.
Testing always reveals nutritional deficiencies difficult to determine by any specific symptom alone. Optimal nutrient support can possibly be met with a nutrient-dense Multi-Vitamin. The average cost is $30-50 monthly. Severely depleted nutrients may require additional dosing, but will only be discovered after micro-nutrient evaluation. Micro-nutrient testing costs $199 max out-of-pocket with insurance or $299 without.
