Another option for Lyme disease treatment

There is so much to look forward to when the snow begins to melt and spring is in the air. Not only does warmer weather bring with it a stronger sense of well-being, as well as more outdoor adventures, but it also brings with it something we don’t look forward to: tick-borne illness, specifically Lyme disease.

We have seen a considerable increase in the prevalence of Lyme disease in Canada and the U.S. over the past four years and, as a result, we see more research and better diagnosis emerging.

The signs and symptoms of Lyme disease vary depending on the stage of Lyme disease the person is in. Initially, acute Lyme can look like the flu, with a fever, muscle aches, weakness and the presentation of a rash (not always present).

With later stage Lyme disease or chronic Lyme disease, it can spread to multi-systems in the body and have a debilitating affect on many of these systems. The symptoms include a huge range, including fatigue, headache, muscle and joint pain, neuralgia or peripheral neuropathy, encephalomyelitis, cognitive impairment, cardiac symptoms, abdominal pain, chronic multi-system infections and night sweats. Visit for a more comprehensive list. Because symptoms of chronic Lyme disease are common to many other diseases, it often goes misdiagnosed and can cause the patient to become overwhelmed with clinical diagnosis over many years.

Alchemy of Herbal Medicine, 600 Natural Remedies to Cure Diseases

Be it bronchitis in adults or children, bronchitis treatments with antibiotics are only used provided the cause is bacterial.
