The Keto Diet and Lyme Disease

The Keto Diet and Lyme Disease

You know the drill if you have Lyme disease. You may have gotten a positive Lyme diagnosis, and you’re in the process of finding the right protocol or treatment that helps you get back to normal, if you can. Perhaps you’ve caught Lyme early and your doctor goes the traditional route and uses Doxycycline or Rocephin to try to nip things in the bud. You may also know that by taking antibiotics for any length of time, you’ll start to create an imbalance of yeast (candida albicans) overgrowth in your intestinal tract that needs to be addressed by counter-active measures like probiotics… and some changes in your diet.

Cistus Tea: Super Tea for Lyme Patients

Cistus Tea: Super Tea for Lyme Patients

Cistus Tea is another one of those amazing Lyme and health therapies I recently heard about through another Lyme patient who had found out about it by doing her own research. She had come by the information via Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt’s website, and she was following his instructions and dutifully drinking several cups of it a day to help break down biofilms the Lyme bacteria can produce to protect itself from antibiotics and other antimicrobials. She also told me it had an interesting side effect. “If you drink 2-3 cups of it a day, it keeps the ticks away.”

Kriya Yoga Poses to Help Retain Energy

Kriya Yoga Poses to Help Retain Energy

Kriya Yoga is an ancient technique that was hidden in secrecy for many centuries. It was revived in 1861, when the great yogi Mahavatar Babaji taught the technique to his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya during their meeting in the Himalayas.

Kriya has been taught in an unbroken link of spiritual succession to this day. Paramhansa Yogananda brought the practice to the United States in 1920 and personally authorized his disciple, Swami Kriyananda to initiate qualified people into Kriya.

The Anti-Parasite Experiment

The Anti-Parasite Experiment

Parasites are about the last thing anyone wants to think about when focusing on health improvements, but they’re something that should be addressed when treating any kind of chronic illness. After reading reports by the NY Times that half the people in the Western world have parasites and that the average person walks around with about three pounds of invasive bacteria in their bodies on any given day, I started taking it seriously.

If you’re a Lyme patient who has plateaued or feels “stuck” in your treatment, well-known doctors like Dr. Lee Cowden and Dr. Jay Davidson point out that internal parasites can hinder your improvement and should be addressed before trying to move on in treatment.

5 Medicinal Mushrooms Every Lyme Patient Should Know About

5 Medicinal Mushrooms Every Lyme Patient Should Know About

When treating Lyme disease, many patients, doctors and practitioners look to traditional vitamin supplements and herbal supports to aid in their healing journey. But ancient Greek and Asian cultures have been using medicinal mushrooms for literally thousands of years and Lyme patients and doctors are just now getting on board with their powerful medicinal properties that rival the most popular pharmaceutical and herbal remedies.

While all of these mushrooms might seem “magical,” none in this collection are of the variety that cause strong hallucinations or distorted reality. However, the mushrooms mentioned below can curb inflammation, support nervous system repair, shrink cancer cells, and fight viruses & bacteria.

MMS Guide for Lymies

MMS Guide for Lymies

You may have heard of something called the Miracle Mineral Solution or MMS. As a Lyme patient you may be trying to make sense of all of the posts and articles that either call it a substance that lives up to its “miracle” label or articles that compare it to bleach and is therefore dangerous to ingest. What’s the truth? We did some personal research and answer a few basic questions.

MMS (which stands for Miracle Mineral Supplement or Miracle Mineral Solution) is a solution made from 22.4% Sodium Chlorite and distilled water that is mixed with an activator that ultimately become Chlorine Dioxide. Sodium Chlorite is not a natural product but is a manufactured chemical. It has no real viable use by itself but is manufactured solely as a precursor to the generation of Chlorine Dioxide.

Lyme Disease is a Custom Illness, No Approach is One Size Fits All

Lyme Disease is a Custom Illness, No Approach is One Size Fits All

When you factor in variables like multiple pathogens, genetic traits that can hinder treatment, and environmental factors in a person’s living space, people stricken with chronic Lyme disease are getting the picture that this is a custom disease. Because of this, a treatment or detox approach that might work well for one individual might cause a dangerous reaction in others. In other words, no one approach is a silver bullet or panacea. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. Why is this and what makes things so complicated with this disease?

What Lyme Patients Need to Know About Shiners & Food Sensitivities

What Lyme Patients Need to Know About Shiners & Food Sensitivities

Have you ever woken up with extra “bags” or discoloration under your eyes the morning after a great night out with very little sleep?  Of course, most of us have at one point or another, but unfortunately many chronic Lyme patients are noticing this issue without the benefit of any of the fun associated with the previous night. It’s the way many patients wake up first thing in the morning as a matter of course, and we refer to them as “shiners.”

What are shiners and what is this reaction? It’s an inflammatory response called an IgG (Immunoglobulin G) reaction, and in the case of Lyme patients, it is almost certainly a reaction to particular foods the patient has eaten as many as 3 days prior. This reaction is also very similar to the way your body reacts when it detects foreign bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungus (candida).

Stevia Guide for Lymies

Stevia Guide for Lymies

If you’ve been paying attention to posts in the Lyme community, the word “stevia” has been a hot topic for the last few years. You’ve probably seen comments like… “Stevia can cure Lyme disease!”; “No, stevia causes cancer and infertility!”; “Stevia can’t be absorbed in the human body!”; I’ve been putting it in my coffee for years, so why am I not cured of Lyme?”

In this short and admittedly non-comprehensive guide, we attempt to put some ideas to rest and to offer a small bit of common sense regarding this plant that various cultures have been using as a food additive for more than 400 years.

Ionic Foot Baths — As a Detoxifier & Diagnostic Tool

Ionic Foot Baths — As a Detoxifier & Diagnostic Tool

Many Lyme disease and chronically ill patients are probably aware that Ionic Foot Baths can be a non-invasive and natural way to help the body remove toxic substances quickly.

For the uninitiated, most typical ionic foot baths consist of a tub of salted, clean water (usually distilled) with two stainless steel plates placed in the foot bath that pass a low-amp electrical current (usually 3-7 amps) through the water to dislodge toxins in the body that are pulled out immediately into the ionized wate
