Lyme Disease is a very common bacterial infection caused by ticks here in New England.The infection is cause by a bit from a deer tick that has been attached to you for about 24 hours. The common signs of Lyme are flu symptoms and the bulls eye rash.
However, there are people who don’t not show those classic signs of the infection. And those are the people who will go months or even years without having treatment. That causes long term damage to your body. When treatment can be a long hard road of super anti-biotics that are very ruff on a person digestion system. My personal opinion is when Lyme has gone this long without getting treatment it never really goes away. It finds a way to hide in your tissues beyond the reach of the antibiotics. The only real way to treat is with massive dose of antibiotics, but that is really no way to live!
Essential oils are a great natural form of antibiotics. Essential oil are a super concentrated liquid form of plants. And on drop goes a long way. The great thing about using essential oils for treating Lyme Disease is your body never becomes immune to the oils. And the oils are also going to help with the muscle and joint pain. Along with the brain fog that happens as well.
One of the most effective treatment for the symptoms of Lyme is the AromaTouch Technique. This is a clinical application of essential oils. And there are 8 different oils that are used in this treatment.
This treatment effects every major system in the body bring it back into balance and strength, so that you can have the ability to heal.
First you need to see your doctor and get diagnosed and get on doxycycline. You still want to be under the doctor's care, because this is a serious bacterial infection that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
And depending on how active your symptoms are you may need to have an AromaTouch Technique 1 - 2x’s a week. This will help to get a head of the infection. And in between treatments soaking in a warm tube with
1 cup Epsom Salt
2 drops On Guard
1 drop Oregano
1 drop Rosemary
Mix the oils in the salt first, then add to the warm water
This is going to help with the pain and also help the oils to soak into your bloodstream fast as well.
Can I do this while on Doxy?
Yes. I personally I have found topical application of the oils to work best in this situation. Applying the essential oils to the skin gets into your blood much faster than if you are to take the oils internally.
It is very important that you let your doctor know what you are doing, that way they can monitor your treatment plan and make better adjustments as needed.
