Prevention and Treatment of Lyme Disease

In Part I of the discussion on Lyme’s disease I discussed what it is and the symptoms associated with it.  Keep in mind that Lyme is an intelligent bacteria which causes the body to manifest its presence in a wide variety of symptoms.

How is Lyme disease transmitted?

Lyme disease’s main mode of infection is from ticks, but there is also evidence of it being transmitted sexually.   Not all ticks carry the bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi, known to cause Lyme’s.  In the United States it is carried in the Northeast by the black-legged deer tick and on the West coast by the western black-legged tick.

In most cases, the tick must be attached for 36- 48 hours or more before the Lyme disease bacterium can be transmitted – so early removal is key.

Prevention and Treatment

Prevention, as with anything, is the best course of action.  The CDC offers recommendations on keeping tick populations around homes and in recreational areas at a minimum.  According to them, ticks can be reduced 50 to 90 percent through simple landscaping practices such as removing brush and leaf litter, and creating a buffer zone of wood chips or gravel between forest and lawn or recreational areas.

Proper tick and flea medication for your pets is key as well.  Be sure to check them regularly for ticks, particularly if they have been outside in areas where there are woods or tall grasses.

And don’t underestimate tick checks for yourself, especially if it is high tick season (June, July, August) and you have been in areas of high tick populations.   iPhone now offers a Tick App complete with a tick map, Lyme disease symptoms, how to remove a tick, and more.  If you do find a tick in you, remove it immediately.  The CDC recommends grasping the tick as close to the skin as possible and pulling upwards with even pressure. If portions of the mouthpiece are left, try to remove them with tweezers, and if unsuccessful leave them and let the skin heal.

The principles of homotoxicology are integral to understanding the processes of reversing this illness.  If you think that you may be suffering from Lyme disease, please make an appointment with a BioEnergetic practitioner as soon as possible! Lyme disease is known to be a multisystem condition manifesting in layers of cause and effect.  The sooner you get treatment, the fewer problems you will have to endure.

While antibiotics can be helpful for some, it cannot address all issues, due to the disease’s ability to morph and intelligently hide in the body.  It could simply cause your body to go into remission, and then pop up again with even worse symptoms down the road.

A treatment plan individually designed for you is the best course of action.  Please don’t let you or your loved ones become another statistic.  There is an answer to this complex disease and your symptoms.
