Heal Lyme From Your Kitchen?
You probably already have some things in your kitchen that can speed your recovery from Lyme. If you are already being treated, there are small things that are supposed to help support those antibiotics, according to some. Manuka honey or raw honey converts to food grade hydrogen peroxide when ingested. This will help to kill off some of the bad bacteria. Organic yogurt will help to replace the good bacteria lost in your gut while taking antibiotics. Throw in some blueberries or walnuts for extra nutrition, brain health, and flavor. My tummy feels much better if I eat yogurt at least twice a day. Pure maple syrup contains ingredients that are shown to boost the effectiveness of antibiotics, so add that to your yogurt or oatmeal for a flavor boost. Turmeric, garlic,and cayenne pepper spices are anti inflammatory and can help with joint pains. Season your foods with these three spices. Ginger will help an upset stomach. I like to drink a ginger pro biotic tea when the antibiotics upset my digestive tract. It is available in most grocery stores. Lemon juice and water can help prevent the side effects of a herx reaction. The herx reaction can be very painful and worsen symptoms. A teaspoon of Baking soda and water can also help with the herx reaction. Small dietary changes like these have had a huge impact on my recovery from Lyme disease. These changes are the least expensive way that I have been able to speed recovery from this illness.
