healinglyme2nd heaklingcoinfection

There is much nutritional, supplement and herbal support for many diseases. Lyme Disease is No Exception to this rule You need to know where to get that advice and treatment. I would turn to your naturopathic physician (ND), registered herbalist (RH) or an integrative physician.
Here is a short list of some of the herbs that have been used in Lyme Disease for my patients.

1. Mugwort (wormwood- artesmia) supports the nervous system
2. Cat’s Claw ( Salmento) has anti-inflammatory and anti microbial properties
3.Devil’s Claw – supports joint health and even digestive health
4. Lemon Balm ( Melissa ) reduces the strain on the immune system
5. Astagalus – supports the immune system

I would recommend the second edition of Healing Lyme by Stephen Buhner and Healing Co Infections  also by Buhner

Until tomorrow…
