Although antibiotics have been proven effective in treating Lyme disease, many other alternative methods of treatment should be used. These natural medicines are safe and fast cures for Lyme disease, even if it is very old. For a speedy recovery, these are the different treatments for Lyme disease:
Try using cat’s claw
It is observed by some doctors that Samento or una de gato, also known as Cat’s claw, helps treat Lyme disease. A herbal medicine is manufactured from the extract of cat’s claws’ inner bark and is said to act as an antimicrobial therapeutic agent. Borrelia organisms, which cause Lyme disease, will be killed by this treatment, and even the neuropathic symptoms of Lyme disease will go away. It is most effective when used with other digestive enzymes and detoxifying medication to treat Lyme disease.
Homeopathic remedies are a form of alternative medicine directed to a specific illness or condition using specific diluted preparations. Not all of the remedies address the same stage of Lyme disease. They can be used along with antibiotics prescribed by your physician. Each brand offers different dosages and frequencies. Below is an example:
From week one to week four after the tick bite: Propolis formula made up of Propolis resin, Echinacea root, Red root, and Licorice root.
From week one to week five after the tick bite: Lomatium formula made up of Lomatium root, Witch hazel, Elderberry, and Prickly ash.
From 6 months onwards after the tock bite: Waltheria formula made up of Waltheria root, Osha root, American Ginseng root, and Artemesia annua.
Eat more garlic
Garlic is considered to be a universal antibiotic. You can support and improve your immune system, as well as battling the Borrelia bacteria and supporting your Lyme disease treatment, by increasing the amount of garlic you eat.
Lyme disease is known to be treated by the help of some African herbs like African Potato extract or Hypoxis Rooperi and Buchu or Agathosma Betulonia. They helps in boosting your immune system, and they act as natural agents for restoring your health.
Consuming probiotic-rich foods
Although not really an alternative treatment for Lyme disease, eating foods rich in probiotics, such as yogurt and kefir, will help protect you from gastrointestinal problems brought on by antibiotic intake. Probiotics contain good bacteria that can stimulate your immune system, helping you quickly recover from Lyme disease.
Eating foods rich in Vitamin C
Your immune system is enhanced by vitamin C. Eating foods rich in Vitamin C can help relieve the flu-like symptoms of Lyme disease quickly. Examples of such foods include citrus fruit, red pepper, guava, papaya, and many other fruits and vegetables.
Physicians are researching other natural remedies that are available for treating Lyme disease. In general, these herbs are the most effective when taken with antibiotics and will help subdue the side effects of antibiotics.
