Herbals For Lyme Treatment
The sadly, many who have Lyme are denied treatment either by their doctor, their insurance company, or by lack of a Lyme literate doctor in their location. Traveling alone to seek treatment in another state seems overwhelming to someone so sick with Lyme, as well as cost prohibitive. If you are like me, I have to work everyday. I can't just leave work for months to seek treatment. I am one of the lucky ones who found a Lyme disease doctor in my town.
I have heard stories of people spending $50,000 going to Mayo Clinic or Cleveland Clinic for Lyme treatment, just to be told that they don't know what is wrong. Others have been told that there is no such thing as chronic Lyme disease. One would think that these two places would provide the very best care and diagnosis for Lyme disease.
I have been reading a lot of stories about herbals for Lyme. This might be something to try if you cannot find a Lyme doctor. There may be an herbalist or Chinese herbalist in your area who could help when conventional medicine cannot.
Some people claim that you can be cured by simply taking Olive Leaf extract. Others claim that Serrapeptase will draw the bacteria out of tissues, bones, and organs. Some claim that coconut oil has antibacterial properties that can kill Lyme. Still others claim that Cat's Claw herbal will eliminate the bacteria. I have read that teasel root extract used as a tincture can cure Lyme in just 7 weeks. One woman claims that her whole family was cured of Bartonella by taking cinnamon leaf oil from Sri Lanka.
I hope that some of these cures do work. I would be especially leery of so-called over night cures. It took a long time for your Lyme infection to progress to the tertiary stage, and it will take weeks, if not months to get well.
Some of the remedies that I have read about seem harmful, dangerous, or even deadly. Some recommend treatments that can cause deafness. It is probably best to seek treatment from an herbalist, a doctor, or a pharmacist before trying these. At the very least, do some research or ask others who have used these products and be aware of side effects.
