Nutritional Strategies for Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is a common tick-borne illness that affects around 300,000 individuals every year. It causes severe pain, swelling in the joints, arthritis, rashes and worse. If detected early, Lyme disease can be treated and abolished, but many will suffer for months on end with some developing post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (also known as chronic Lyme disease or PTLDS).

Scientists believe that PTLDS may be caused by residual tissue damage and chronic inflammation. Dietary factors can ease or increase inflammation. Sugars, gluten and dairy will fan the fires of inflammation, but there are several dietary approaches that will diminish it.

Good fats, the kind found in fish, flaxseed and olive oil are well-known and stalwart inflammation fighters. Look for those fats in AIMega and CellSparc 360.

Fruits and vege­­tables pro­vide in­flam­­mation-fighting antioxidants, and there might be no better source of plant-based an­ti­oxidants than those found in BarleyLife or BarleyLife Xtra.

CoCoa LeafGreens and Leaf­Greens con­tain quercetin, a substance that may assist with Lyme-related bladder issues, allergic reac­tions and pain.
Finally, probiotics such as FloraFood have been recommended for leaky gut issues associated with PTLDS.

I was having pain in my hips, knees, shoulders, jaw as well as severe headaches. At times the headaches were unbearable. Within a year, it became more difficult to do household tasks. I was praying every day that God would help me.

A family friend heard of my condition and brought me BarleyLife. After three days of taking it, I was up cleaning the house. When my husband came home from work, I was doing dishes. He was surprised that I was up and feeling so much better. He said, ‘That stuff works, keep taking it.’ So I did.

Later, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and was put on a 90-day plan. I kept up with the AIM products and my health and energy began improving every day. I was no longer experiencing those horrible headaches and the pain in my joints was reduced.
