Encore Episode: Overcoming Lyme Disease
Lyme disease can harm your immune system if undetected.

It is transmitted via tick bite, causing a bullseye rash. The bacteria from the tick leads to chronic immune dysfunction. If your immune system is not up to snuff, your body is prone to immune disruption.

Typical Symptoms of Lyme
Non-specific symptoms don’t point to a diagnosis and are present in many chronic illnesses. Brain fog, joint dysfunction, feeling flu-like all the time and eye irritation are symptoms. A wide range of peculiar symptoms make it hard for doctors to pinpoint the source. 

Blood testing is the most reliable method for diagnosis.

Natural Treatments
Antibiotics may or may not be a workable solution for you.

Herbal therapy may work well for you. Resveratrol from Japanese knotweed, sarsaparilla, cat’s claw are commonly used to treat Lyme. There are many herbs with antimicrobial properties to explore.

Reduction of toxins and stress may help.

Listen as Lyme expert Dr. Bill Rawls joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to help get you address a Lyme diagnosis.
