Lyme disease - an often treacherous disease
Ticks are a perpetual nuisance during the warm seasons. They can become dangerous due to the diseases they transmit. These include in particular the viral disease TBE (early summer meningoencephalitis) and bacterial Lyme disease. The latter in particular can develop into a protracted condition for many people. In some cases, serious symptoms occur even years after a Lyme disease infection. These are often very unspecific and make many therapists think of a past infection with the so-called Borrelia only after countless unsuccessful therapy attempts. Vital mushrooms can effectively support those affected in both acute and chronic courses.
Lyme disease is an infectious disease mostly transmitted by ticks. This is a disease that can affect various organs, including, for example, nerves or joints. In addition to the acute disease, there is the chronic form. Diagnosis and therapy are often difficult, especially in chronic Lyme disease. This is because very often the symptoms in the late stage overlap with those of other diseases. These can be, for example, osteoarthritis, arthritis, rheumatism, neurological diseases (stroke, multiple sclerosis, ALS), visual disorders, depression or chronic fatigue syndrome.
Infection usually occurs through a sting. Besides ticks, mosquitoes and horseflies are also carriers of Borrelia. Most tick bites occur in midsummer, although ticks are active at ambient temperatures as low as 5 – 7 °C. Many people believe that they are only infested with ticks while hiking or walking in the woods. Significantly more frequent, however, are tick bites in one’s own garden, in the park and by ticks in the home that have fallen off pets.
Treatment options for Lyme disease
Conventional medicine recommends various antibiotics for the treatment of Lyme disease, but these offer little prospect of success, especially in the chronic phase. From a naturopathic point of view, it is much more important to strengthen the immune system. This can prevent the bacteria from reproducing and thus slow down the progression of the disease. Since large portions of our immune system reside in the gut, it makes sense to start here. With intestinal rehabilitation and an adapted diet, the body’s defenses can be significantly increased.
In addition, vital mushrooms are able to support the body very well. They have antiviral and antibacterial properties. In addition, they strengthen the immune system, which in the best case can cure Lyme disease completely. The patient’s quality of life is significantly improved, fatigue and concentration difficulties are reduced.
Especially for the treatment of Lyme disease, the vital mushrooms Coriolus and Reishi are recommended. Both are conveniently available even as a mushroom powder mixture. Coriolus exerts an antibacterial effect and an effect directed against intracellular pathogens (such as Borrelia). In addition, it has a general strengthening effect on cellular defenses. Reishi is effective against inflammation and also promotes detoxification processes, especially in the liver.
Especially in the chronic form, many patients are on drug therapy, sometimes for a longer period of time. Therefore, it is highly recommended to seek professional advice before administering vital mushrooms.
