Here are some herbs to support the body through battles with Lyme’s Disease:
Cats claw – also know as: uña de gato – commonly used for improving symptoms of arthritis, digestive system disorders, diverticulitis, colitis, gastritis, stomach ulcers, hemorrhoids, and leaky bowel syndrome. Some people use cat’s claw for viral infections including shingles, cold sores etc…
Licorice root – has proven to be a lifeline for many of my patients in not only improving the symptoms of Adrenal Dysfunction (which patients care about most) but also in helping to heal the underlying adrenal weakness that leads to a cure (which I care about most)
icorice acts to support and improve the function of cortisol, the major hormone of the adrenal glands. In doing so, it helps relieve the majority of the major symptoms of Adrenal Dysfunction, such as fatigue, pain, weakness, dehydration, brain fog, among others.
Maitake – mushroom is used to treat cancer and also to relieve some of the side effects of chemotherapy, it is also used for HIV/AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), hepatitis, hay fever, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol.
Ginseng – boost the immune system, may decrease the number and severity of colds in adults, studies in people have also shown that ginseng may lower blood sugar levels, might temporarily — and modestly — improve concentration and learning, improve mood and boost endurance.
Red clover – for lowering cholesterol, managing women’s issues, cancer prevention, indigestion, high cholesterol, cough, asthma, bronchitis.
How does it work?
Red clover contains “isoflavones” which are changed in the body to “phytoestrogens” that are similar to the hormone estrogen.
St. John’s wort – Also known as goatweed. Is widely known as an herbal medicine for treating depression. It is proposed that the mechanism of action of St. John’s wort is due to the inhibition of reuptake of certain neurotransmitters.
