Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index


1. Plain yogury is recommended because it is sugar-free. Excessive amounts of refined sugar is not advisable for Lyme patients because it creates a hospitable environment for the Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme organism) and also contributes to Candida (yeast) overgrowth, which is a definite no-no if you are taking antibiotics.

2. I'm not sure where the information you mentioned came from, but the reason steroidal anti-inflamatory drugs are contraindicated for Lyme patients is because they are immunosuppressive. Drugs such as prednisone, for instance, can be disastrous for Lyme patients. As for sleeping pills, sometimes they are prescribed because Lyme can cause sleep disturbances and the body cannot heal if you cannot sleep. Obviously some of them can be addictive so you have to watch it. But what you mentioned from the other website, that is just assinine.

3. As for the detox baths, everyone seems to do it a bit differently. I usually use about a pound or 2 of epsom salts and about 8 oz. of hydrogen peroxide and this seems to be effective. Sometimes I add a few drops of lavender or tea trea oil. Lavender is relaxing and tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic. The oils aren't absolutely neccessary but they are a nice touch.
