Borrelia burgdorferi, the spirochete that causes Lyme Disease.
Lyme infection has been called a great imitator as it can mimic a variety of illnesses. The severity of the symptoms of Lyme disease can vary from patient to patient. If Infection is untreated it can enter the bloodstream affecting the joints, brain, eyes, and or heart. The most common nerve-related problem is facial palsy (drooping of the muscles on one or both sides of the face).
Bell’s palsy is a common term for paralysis on one side of the face. One of the suggested homeopathic remedies to use for this is Causticum 1M or higher strength eg 10M (if bad). We can provide this single homeopathic remedy on request.
These chronic infection for humans are on the rise for reasons unknown. For example: Borreliosis lyme infection has a myriad of symptoms. These symptoms can start a week after a tick bite or much later, and include: Sinusitis, stiff neck, sweat attacks, muscle twitches, muscle weakness, chills, headaches, nausea, fevers, even drop in blood pressure levels. involuntary jerking of limbs, arthritis, Bell’s palsy, cramps, paralysis, depression, brain fog, insomnia, balance problems, light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, optic neuritis, nerve conduction defects, numbness, ECG (cardiac conduction) abnormalities, swallowing difficulties, tinnitus and more.
Lyme Disease is an Auto immune Disorder.
The most successful bacteria will shut down certain aspects of immune function to assure their own survival and proliferation. In the case of Borrelia, the microbe can also cloak itself and effectively hide from the immune system. When these mechanisms are in play, the immune system may fail in its attempts to rid the body of the pathogens. A Herxheimer can last from a few days to two weeks or more, depending on how disseminated the bacteria is in the body.
For most people (and pet) when they first start Lyme treatment, the only objective that is known is to kill the bacteria. Only later in treatment, sadly, is it learned just how equally important it is to have a detoxification protocol employed as well.
A person's (or animal's) body may have a falty detox methylation pathway blockage.
Depending on a person's detoxification abilities (i.e., MTHFR, trace mineral and water intake, diet, etc), the body can no longer remove the toxins of a herxheimer reaction like it could in the beginning of treatment. Glutathione (the body's master detoxing agent) levels in the liver become depleted, and if a person has an MTHFR gene mutation, their liver may already have, from the start, a relatively lower level of glutathione. If the liver can't efficiently process the toxins from the next herxheimer reaction, those toxins end up in the bloodstream where they're eventually stored in fat cells.
So many of us and our pets, will have a Congested Liver! (There are no lab tests to show if we have a congested liver).
Therefore, it is vital to take a herbal formula that will support your liver and kidney function. In conjunction with supplemements. Only after a month or so, should we then do anysort of gentle detox from the lyme bacterial invasion.
The Lyme microbial herbal formula for a auto immune disorders that helps as a immune modulator is a herb called Cats Claw (TOA free) which raises DD57 white blood cell counts. It modulates the immune system, raising it where appropriate and lowering overactive (auto immune) responses where necessary. The POAs in Cat's Claw work by supporting the white blood cells (WBC). These are the cells that help with immunity. One of the functions of the WBC is to gobble up, and eliminate bacteria and viruses. POA does this by increasing the production of interleukin by the WBC. POAs also help a type of cell called B cells. B cells create antibodies against one type of virus or bacteria. Cat's Claw also helps the body create more T cells. T cells attack cancer cells and also AIDS viruses found in the blood stream.
As Lyme co infection Babesia is Babesiosis is an infection caused by a malaria-like parasite, also called a “piroplasm,” that infects red blood cells. Babesia microti is believed to be the most common piroplasm infecting humans, but scientists have identified over twenty piroplasms carried by ticks. Ticks or Mosquitos may carry only Babesia or they may be infected with both Babesia and Lyme spirochetes. Often used for this condition is the herbal formula we the herb Artemisinin (Artemisia Annus 1:5) other common names Sweet Annie, Chinese Wormwood. Not the common wormwood. Artemisia Annus is a close cousin to oxygen therapy. Chinese researchers said the key to its effects was a peroxide linkage (two oxygen atoms hooked together) within the herb's active molecule. N.B Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), should not be confused with Sweet chinese wormwood (Artemisia annua). Although wormwood is related to the sweet wormwood, they are used in different ways.
Other important support
A natural sleep hormone Melatonin Capsules (NOW Foods brand). use powder from capsules (do not use the liquid form with pets)
B12 methylcobalamin subliqual (Australians will need to order this on-line from USA e.g. iherb.com) (do not get B12 cyanocobalamin) This is for sleep, nervous system and vision, energy. NB. Methylcobalamin is needed for the synthesis of melatonin (sleep hormone) ~ Indications of defiency in the nervous system might include numbness, tingling, loss of feeling sensation, burning sensation, muscle cramps, nerve pain and slow reflexes.
Vitamin B6 is sometimes referred to as the "workhorse" of nutrients because it is part of over 100 biological functions in the body. Support healthy immune function • May be essential for normal brain development and function (manufactures neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) such as serotonin, and helps to release stored energy) • Essential for red blood cell metabolism • Needed for more than 100 enzymes involved in protein metabolism - helps cells make proteins.
What does Vitamin B6 do? Vitamin B6 helps the body make several neurotransmitters, chemicals that carry signals from one nerve cell to another. It is essential for normal brain development and function, and helps the body make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine (which influence mood) and melatonin (which helps regulate the body clock). It is rare to have a significant deficiency of B6, although studies indicate many people may be mildly deficient, especially children and the elderly. Certain medications can also cause low levels of B6 in the body. Symptoms of serious deficiency include muscle weakness, nervousness, irritability, depression, difficulty concentrating, and short-term memory loss.
