Lyme disease is a major concern for Long Island residents. With the rise in the area’s tick populations and the alarming rate in which residents are being diagnosed with the debilitating Lyme disease, it’s essential that anyone experiencing symptoms of Lyme disease makes an effort to boost their immune system and try to manage as many symptoms naturally as possible. Some easy changes can help those who have contracted Lyme disease to manage their symptoms. Alternative EarthCare discusses three natural methods of treating the symptoms of tick-borne Lyme disease.
- Control your environment Lyme weakens one’s immune system, making them susceptible to all sorts of health issues from contracting other illnesses more easily, to systemic bacterial infection, inhibited cellular function, and a long list of life-impacting symptoms. Chronic fatigue, achiness, flu-like symptoms, depression, and a lack of mental clarity, are a few of many symptoms that plague chronic Lyme sufferers. It’s vital to get enough sleep, eliminate as many stress factors as possible, and reduce mold and parasite exposure, to support a healthy immune system. Making sure that enough time is put aside to rest and sleep, avoiding stressors and incorporating stress managing activities such as yoga into your routine, and maintaining a clean environment, will help to keep symptoms in check.
- Update your diet and supplements Try to limit consumption of processed foods, and replace with healthier, natural options. Increase anti-inflammatory food intake, such as vegetables, nuts, and coconut, probiotic-rich foods such as yogurt, goat’s milk, and amasai, and foods that are high in antioxidants. High anti-oxidant foods include fresh fruits and vegetables, leafy greens, and berries. Also incorporate supplements that help to boost the immune system, limit inflammation, assist in digestion, improve nerve function, improve cellular function, and help to improve mental clarity. CoQ10, B-Complex, Omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, turmeric and medicinal mushrooms such as cordyceps will all help to reduce the symptoms of Lyme disease. Speak with a doctor and nutritionist to discuss symptoms present and the best combination of supplements to address them.
- Avoid re-releasing toxins Some things can cause the releasing of toxins back into one’s system, causing a resurgence or increase in Lyme symptoms, such as fatigue, aching bones, headaches, depression, and mental cloudiness. Hard water pressure in the shower, deep tissue massages, and detoxing can all aggravate symptoms for Lyme sufferers by re-releasing endotoxins and exotoxins from the Lyme bacteria.
