Natural Treatments for Lyme Coinfections

Posted on in Art + Soul by Jackie Cassidy

By Stephen Harrod Buhner

Harvard researchers estimate there are nearly 250,000 new Lyme disease infections each year—only 10% of which will be accurately diagnosed. One of the largest factors in misdiagnosis of Lyme is the presence of other tick-borne infections, which mask or aggravate the symptoms of Lyme disease as well as complicate treatment. Three newly emergent Lyme coinfections are Babesia, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasma. Tens of thousands of people are known to be asymptomatically infected, and at least 10% will become symptomatic this year—with symptoms ranging from chronic headache and arthritis to seizures.

Providing an in-depth guide for clinicians and those suffering from these coinfections, Buhner details effective, natural holistic methods centered on herbs and supplements, such as Ashwagandha and Chinese Skullcap, and reveals how to treat specific symptoms, interrupt the cytokine cascades, reduce inflammation, and bring the immune system back to balance. His explanations of natural methods not only complement conventional Lyme treatments involving antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals but also provide relief when other forms of treatment have failed. This book is essential reading for better understanding of Lyme’s associated coinfections and treatments.
