Whether it’s rashes, swollen knees, nausea or impaired weakness in your limbs that has gone on for a long time – you’re probably frustrated looking for medical answers. If this sounds familiar, the answer may lay in that tiny creepy crawler that got under your skin last summer!
One possible explanation is that you’ve contracted Lyme disease from a deer tick. These tiny blood sucking parasites live in tall grasses, can fly with the wind and cleverly stick on the insides of your pants or shirts until they bury their heads under your skin. They love the hot places you offer under your armpits, the backs of your knees or the nape of the neck; depositing Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia mayonii bacteria, and leaving a bulls-eye rash as a remembrance.
Lyme disease is prevalent enough to be considered epidemic and serious enough to cause neurological symptoms, cognitive defects, heart rhythm irregularities and even death.
If you’ve recently been bitten, then a blood test may identify the disease, however, it’s often ineffective in detecting it when the bite occurred several months or years ago.
The mainstream treatment for Lyme disease is oral and/or intravenous antibiotics to lessen the more severe symptoms. After treatment, some people continue to have symptoms that include muscle aches and fatigue. The Mayo Clinic says that the post treatment Lyme disease (continuing symptoms after treatment) requires more research to discover why there are lasting symptoms for some people even after antibiotic treatment.
If you think you have contracted Lyme disease, Homoeopathy can help. Homoeopathy is a holistic healing system that focuses on the whole person and tailored to each patient’s specific symptoms and history. It’s an effective treatment and eradication of the symptoms and long-term side effects of Lyme disease.
There are a number of remedies that Dr. Kumar may use to treat Lyme disease. The remedies used will depend on the patient’s symptoms and background, but part of the treatment plan may include Rhus Tox for body aches and chills. More effective remedies include Bryonia for fatigue, and Belladonna for inflammation. Even when treating the same illness, people often have varying symptoms, medical histories and/or additional maladies, and therefore require individualistic treatment plans. It’s important to work with a Homoeopathic practitioner who can advise and prepare the most effective treatment. If you would like more information or would like to set up an appointment, please contact Dr. Kumar.
