Lyme disease and ticks in the Ottawa area are a serious issue. As we head into August, our blog is all about cottage days, restfulness and awareness – so it’s the perfect time for a post about ticks! (Plus, we’ve got a handy tick-tool for you to use.) Unfortunately many people don’t ever realize they’ve been bitten by a tick, miss the the telltale rash, and ultimately end up with a “mystery illness” that destroys their lives. So, in today’s post, you’ll learn how to become proactive around tick bites.
Tick bites don’t sting, and can easily go unnoticed. But the impact of getting the disease is devastating. From unremitting fatigue to aches and pains, headaches and much more, this disease becomes very hard to diagnose and treat. Avril Lavigne recently came out publicly about her diagnosis of Lyme disease, and she is still working to recover many months later.

But what if you do somehow get Lyme disease? Here are options to consider.
Medical treatments, when they believe you have Lyme Disease, consists of antibiotics. If choosing antibiotics for treatment, make sure you support your enzymatic system and restore your intestinal flora. This will help in preventing further chronic disease developing as a result of the treatment impact. That’s an important tip too often not considered when it comes to the option of antibiotics.
Natural treatments can also be effective for Lyme disease. Through herbal and homeopathic remedies you can suppress the microbes and restore the gut function, decrease the inflammation and oxidative stress, boost the immune system and support the detoxification. All these steps are needed for you to recover well.
Dr. Robert Abell has developed a great protocol for Lyme disease through Gemmotherapy, which is a natural therapy using the buds of plants, which we use in our office. Learn more here about Gemmotherapy.
