Lyme disease is not a very common disorder and so not much is known about it. Only those affected know how debilitating an ailment it can be.
This blog is to share information about Lyme disease.
Lyme disease is caused by the bite of an infected tick.
The infective bacteria is called Borrelia burgdoferri. It starts with a rash and is followed by aches, fever and fatigue. It has its periods of remissions and exacerbations. One of the most frustrating things about this illness is the unpredictable nature of its flare ups.
Symptoms are very inconsistent and one has to be prepared for them anytime.
Antibiotics are effective if administered in the early stages of the disease.
These can be combined with large doses of salt and Vitamin C which can be helpful.
Natural products like garlic too have anti-oxidant properties.
Lyme disease is a chronic illness and all such are opportunities to grow. Let’s make living with Lyme easy for all by sharing our experiences on this forum.
