Lyme disease is transmitted by ticks and other blood sucking parasites that carry the bacterial organism called Borrelia. People living in wooded areas in certain parts of North Eastern America are at a greater risk of contracting Lyme disease.Similarly, pet owners having cats or dogs that are let out in grassy trails are also at a risk of developing Lyme disease symptoms. The name Lyme disease originated from Old Lyme, a town in Connecticut, in the year 1975, when many kids and elderly residents suddenly developed mysterious arthritis like symptoms. Lyme disease mainly affects the heart, the nervous system as well as the joints. The most effective conventional tick bite Lyme disease treatment is antibiotics. However; many people as well as pets are known to continue to suffer from debilitating symptoms of Lyme disease for years despite taking these medicines.
It is probably due to this reason that more and more chronic sufferers are looking at alternative yet effective natural tick bite Lyme disease treatments including Homeopathy.
Homeopathy is not like conventional herbal treatment, unlike popular belief. On the contrary, it is based on the Law of Similar which means that whatever causes your symptoms can also cure you. Thus, and this may be quite difficult to believe, if you suffer from insomnia, then caffeine can help or if you get seasonal nasal allergies, then certain varieties of pollen can help and so on. So what this basically means is, based on your complete medical history and your exact symptoms, your homeopath will prescribe a like-cures-like treatment by repeatedly diluting the substance that produces those symptoms with water. Thus, continuing the above example, your homeopath might give you a single drop of caffeine diluted with 99 drops of water to create centesimal medicine, which, when taken over time makes you immune to whatever is causing your insomnia.
Lyme disease symptoms
Tick bite Lyme disease can lead to following symptoms which typically occur in 3 stages:
Stage 1– The bitten individual might develop a rash which has a bull’s eye like appearance (clear in the center with a distinct target like ring around). This is not the most reliable symptom, since nearly 1 in 5 people who are bitten do not develop any rash at all.This may be followed by flu-like symptoms including chills, fevers, aches and pains etc.
Stage 2- Weeks later, the bitten animal or human could develop neurological issues like paralysis, memory problems, joint and muscle pain. Some people also tend to develop heart rhythm problems. The rash can also appear at this stage.
Stage 3– In the third stage, the bitten victim continues to suffer the symptoms of Lyme disease, typically joint pain, extreme fatigue, arthritis, personality changes, depression, mood swings, and cognitive issues and so on.
Can Homeopathy be used as an effective natural Tick Bite Lyme disease treatment?
Homeopathy is and has been proven an effective natural tick bite Lyme disease treatment. The key is to take the remedies immediately after the bite has occurred. In the later stages of Lyme disease, it may be too late and you might need the intervention of an experienced homeopath for complete cure of the disease. Hence, the key is to act fast and take the correct Homeopathic remedy immediately after the bite.
Homeopathic preventive remedy for tick bite Lyme disease
- On the day of the bite, immediately take Ledum 200C potency.
- On the 2nd day, take Hypericum 200C.
- On the 3rd day, take Nosode 30C (Borrelia Burgdorferi) one dose per day for one week followed by one dose per week for a month.
Many animals have been treated successfully with the aforementioned homeopathic remedies for Lyme disease. Many human sufferers of chronic Lyme disease too have used the remedy with good effect. Blood tests conducted on animals and humans after taking Ledum 200C showed no signs of Lyme disease.
For larger animals like horses bitten by ticks, homeopaths might prescribe Ledum 1M which is 5 times more potent than Ledum200C. However, this treatment should only be done under the guidance of an experienced homeopath.
If the tick is still attached to the skin, you must remove it and immediately apply Echinacea Mother Tincture to the bite wound. Alternatively, dissolve Ledum 200c in water and apply it on the bite site. Take one dose of Tick bite fever Nosode 200 C within 24 hours of the bite. Also take one dose of Ledum 200C and repeat 4 times, depending on how you feel.
Combining different homeopathic remedies for Lyme disease
Many homeopaths also like to prescribe LymePlex- a homeopathic remedy that is a combination of several remedies including Belladonna, Baptisa, Calcarea Carbonica and Fluorica, Kali Carb, Rhus Tox, Mercurius v etc.
In conclusion: Is Homeopathy a suitable all-natural tick bite Lyme disease treatment?
The answer is yes, Homeopathy can and has been used for completely healing Lyme disease symptoms naturally without the use of antibiotics. You cannot just completely obliterate the infection with this science, but also boost the immune system in the process.
