Looking for Lyme disease treatment options? If you have recently been diagnosed with Lyme disease, or if antibiotics aren't working for your lyme treatment (they seem to make things worse for a lot of us) then I hope some of these ideas are helpful for you.

Lyme Disease Treatment with Supplements
I'm starting with this particular Lyme Disease Treatment Option because I feel it is the most cost-effective, yet results driven protocol that I've found. 3 supplements called monolaurin, bio-fibrin, and In Focus. It's only about $350 for the year ($150 for 6 months) and most people start feeling a significant change in a couple of months.
I also bought their supplement called Infla-mazing. (or something like that.) I think it's been helpful as well. It has a lot of really good, high quality ingredients that fight inflammation. They do say to start the Lyme disease protocol slowly because it's proving to be super effective in killing the Lyme, which can cause herxing (die-off) if you go too fast.

This is true of any lyme treatment that you do: start out slow and gradually increase to the regular dose. If you start to herx too much, reduce the dosage. One of the most incredible things about this protocol is that is proving to be wildly successful in getting into the biofilm communities where the lyme hides. This is the most cost-effective, yet results driven protocol that I've found.
Lyme Disease Treatment With Diet
Lyme disease symptoms can be greatly reduced by following a “lyme diet.” I greatly reduced SUGAR, GLUTEN and DAIRY when I was healing my body from Lyme Disease, and saw great results from this alone. However, it's REALLY HARD. So if this feels incredibly overwhelming to you, start with baby steps.
When I first tried eliminating These three things, I made green smoothies and packed them with nutrients. I drank smoothies for breakfast and lunch so that i didn't have the stress of meal planning.
It might be a good idea to try the above supplements to get you to a better place, while trying to reduce foods that cause inflammation. I have also heard amazing things from people use the GAPS diet for Lyme treatment. The idea is that if you can restore and heal your gut health, you can heal your body from many different diseases. Many have also had success following the dietary suggestions in the book The Medical Medium.
Detox Lyme Treatment Options
Anything that you can do to detox your body is going to help with your herxing, and rid your body of toxins. Most people with Lyme Disease have a stressed liver, so anything you can do to detox and help the workload of your liver, is going to help with your symptoms. I was able to get rid of skin issues (rashes, etc.) from simple detox baths.
Foot zones have also been amazing for helping me to manage lyme disease symptoms and detox the body. I always seem to have gallbladder problems when I am going through lyme disease treatment, and foot zones have kept my gallbladder attacks from continuing.
Some other things that might help with detox: massage, ionic foot baths, foot zones, oxygen therapy, infra-red sauna, etc.
Below is the ionic foot bath that was part of my stem cell clinic.
Lyme Disease Treatment Through Mental/Emotional Work
One of the greatest things that contributed to my healing process, was learning to be a guardian of my thoughts. You MUST surround yourself with positivity to give your body a chance to heal. I noticed when I was first diagnosed that fear started feeding my symptoms.
It wasn't until I started to think more positively that my body started to respond to lyme disease treatments and begin healing. Your body is absolutely affected by your emotions. Anytime you find your thoughts drifting to phrases such as “I am so sick,” replace that thought with, “I am healing” “My body knows how to heal.”
Energy work was also one of the biggest factors in helping me to heal, but it can seem a little weird to those who have never heard of it before. It was to me. Once you understand the energy systems in your body work, it makes sense. Energy work is a great method for clearing emotions, traumas, pinpointing systems in your body that are being affected, balancing hormones, and several other things.
I work with a lady that is amazing at what she does, and much cheaper than those with this training. She has been a huge help in helping me to train my thoughts in the direction of healing.
Yoga is also a great tool for your mental/emotional health and healing. I never fully appreciated yoga until I began my Lyme treatment and healing journey.
Lyme Disease Treatment Through Stem Cells
I've left this particular lyme treatment for last because it is the most expensive. I did stem cells because I am a mother of several young children and wanted to heal as quickly as possible, but it is not the only way to heal. Stem cells are incredible, but if you can't afford them…they are not the only effective lyme disease treatment.
I also want to add that just like any other lyme disease treatment, stem cells will not be as effective if your body is not in a healthy state. I've seen people do MANY stem cell treatments and heal more slowly, and I've seen people have amazing results after their first 1-2 treatments.
I believe the difference all comes to diet. Those who work on healing the body through diet, supplements and detox therapies, will likely have better results with stem cells because they are putting their body in the healthiest state possible to receive these new cells.
I chose to do stem cells through Dr. Destin Thayne‘s office because of the detox therapies that they do in conjunction with the stem cell clinic (and also because I heard good things about him), and then I also did stem cells in Mexico (I heard good things about Dr. Calzada in Tijuana). The type of stem cells you are getting at both clinics are different, so if there is interest I can do a separate blog post explaining my experience at both.
Ultimately…..I just want to say: Don't give up. There are so many lyme treatment options out there, and you may at times feel overwhelmed trying to figure out which direction to take, but my best advice is to go with your gut. Follow your instinct. Listen to your intuition.
Others around you will always have their opinions about your lyme disease treatment decisions and what you should do to get better, but it's YOUR BODY. Listen to it. And quiet out the voices that might doubt your decisions. Honor and love them for caring enough about your health to have an opinion, but then move on with what you feel best about doing. When I decided to do stem cells as part of my lyme treatment, there were some who were worried I was making the wrong choice, or wasting my savings. I love them for their concern, but it ended up being a great thing for me.
Next, I just want to say…YOU CAN GET BETTER. It might not seem like it now, and the steps to get better might seem overwhelming, but if you stay positive, the body has the ability to heal and respond faster than you might think.
Here are a couple of pictures of me at the peak of my illness and symptoms, and a couple more just a few months after I began lyme treatment. I see hope and light in the bottom two pictures.
And if you get better and have a relapse, don't get discouraged. Remember that your body has already done this! If it has healed before, it can heal again. I'm currently going through a relapse myself due to an unexpected pregnancy in the middle of my treatment plan (child-birth always brings on my symptoms), but I am quickly back on my lyme treatments, with hope that I will return to remission even quicker than the first time.
