Lyme disease is an infection of the body that is contracted by being bitten by a tick. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), over 30,000 people in the United States have Lyme disease, and most don’t even know it. The most common symptoms of Lyme disease are similar to a cold. These symptoms include:
If left untreated, or treated too late, Lyme disease can spread further throughout the body impacting your joints, heart, and nervous system. This is considered a different condition is known as chronic Lyme disease, and is almost never cured by antibiotics alone.
The most common way to treat Lyme disease is through antibiotics like amoxicillin, doxycycline, and cefuroxime axetil. Antibiotics can leave your bodies immune system damaged and harm your gut’s microbiology. While antibiotics often are effective in fighting Lyme disease when it is caught early, for some, the symptoms of Lyme disease will linger for months afterward. This is thought to be caused by a fatigued immune system, caused from fighting Lyme disease.
Because your body has been working so hard to get rid of the Lyme disease, the symptoms will often linger well after your antibiotic treatment has passed. To help your body recover, treatments like ozone therapy, vitamin infusions, and glutathione injections can benefit your body.
Ozone therapy consists of adding oxygenating the blood with ozone (O3) which has an extra molecule than normal oxygen (O2). This maximises the oxygen levels in your blood, and as ozone sheds its extra molecule, it allows for oxidants to attach to them and neutralize. Along with ozone therapy, antioxidant infusions can benefit and help fight chronic Lyme disease. Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants known and can contribute to fighting Lyme disease when introduced intravenously. Glutathione is produced naturally in the body and is also in many vegetables like asparagus. When introduced intravenously, it gives your body more than what it can produce. This boost allows the glutathione to help control free radicals, reducing inflammation and helping your immune system fight Lyme disease. Further boosting your immune system, vitamin infusions can give your body the nutrient support it needs as it helps rebuild after Lyme disease. These three treatments in concert can help your body, and be the final knock out blow to Lyme disease.
