Lyme disease is caused by four main strands of bacteria. These are transported by ticks. You are more likely to get Lyme Disease if you spend time in areas with heavy underbrush, tall grass, or are heavily wooded. Symptoms can include rashes and flu-like symptoms. The rashes often appear on the skin around where a tick has been removed. There are some home remedies that can help.
Prevention is the First Step
Ticks cannot fly or jump, so the first step is to keep them off of you. If you must pass through heavily wooded or tall grass areas, wear long pants, socks, and long sleeve shirts. When you get home, shower to remove any ticks in your hair and also to get a good look at your skin and body for any ticks. Put your clothes through the clothes dryer so the heat kills any ticks prior to putting those clothes back on.
Use a Tick Repellent
Tick repellents come in a variety of styles. Cover exposed skin with one containing lemon oil or eucalyptus. If children are with you, apply the repellent for them but avoid their hands, so they do not get it in their mouths.
High in Omega-3 fatty acids, flaxseed oil provides an immune system booster. Take up to six tablespoons daily to support your immune system. Choose high-quality flaxseed oil and organic flaxseed oil, if you can find it.
Aloe Vera Removes Toxins
Aloe vera juice is a great way to spurn toxins from your body. Drink aloe vera juice twice a day until healed. Pure aloe vera gel can be applied to the skin for areas where a tick has been removed.
Garlic for Health
Garlic is renowned for its healing properties. Have two to three cloves daily. The cloves can be chopped into small pieces and eaten with a glass of water. This might lead to slight stomach discomfort if your stomach had been empty. Another option is to spread the crushed garlic on some toast.
Extract of Olive Leaf
This extract is a great disease fighter for a broad spectrum of conditions. Take several tablespoons of infusion of olive leaf extract daily until cured.
Long known to Native American healers and then European settlers, Echinacea has myriad uses. It is also effective against Lyme Disease. This herb can be taken in capsules but also in a tea. Have some several times daily to improve your health.
Oil of Oregano
Oil of Oregano is found to be effective. Take up to ten drops daily and mix with several drops of grapefruit seed extract for extra efficacy.
This herb has a number of side effects and risks. However, it has long been used to fight Lyme Disease in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Its use is highly recommended for Lyme Disease. However this should be done with expert advice from a reputable TCM practitioner.
Black Walnut Hulls and Cloves
Both of these are known for their antiparasitic properties. You should take up to 500 mg of black walnut hulls with a half-teaspoon of cloves daily for fourteen days.
