If you’ve been diagnosed with Lyme disease, you understand all too well how difficult it is to have your quality of life stripped away from you. Constant fatigue, achy joints, and persistent pain can make daily tasks feel impossible, and help is hard to find. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer in silence as there are natural and effective treatment methods available to you!
As we are in the height of tick season In North America, we thought we should address our unique approach to holistically treating Lyme disease through The Hache Protocol for Pain Resolution™ and microcurrent therapy in this blog.
What is Lyme Disease?
Summer is that feel-good time of year when we all head outdoors to enjoy the beauty and splendor of mother nature. Whether you are camping, boating, fishing hiking, golfing or simply just relaxing at the beach, there is a hidden danger that many don’t know to look out for until it’s too late: Lyme disease.
Lyme disease is a tick-borne infection caused by four different strains of bacteria. According to the CDC, Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne disease in the United States. Approximately 30,000 cases of Lyme disease are reported to the CDC each year in the U.S. alone.
But this doesn’t count for all cases, as Lyme disease can be complicated to identify and diagnose. Lyme disease has been dubbed “the great imitator” because it mimics many other illnesses like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, M.S., ALS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and lupus.
Symptoms of Lyme Disease
The first indication of Lyme infection will be a “bull’s eye” rash around a tick bite. If you notice this symptom or any of those listed below, it is time to seek out a natural treatment option.
Common early Lyme disease symptoms:
Common symptoms of late-stage Lyme disease:
- Numbness in legs and hands
- Short term memory loss
Clearly, Lyme disease is one souvenir you don’t want to bring home from your summer break, as it poses significant harm to your organs, brain, nervous system, muscles, joints, and heart.
Why Conventional Lyme Disease Treatments Fail
When patients come to us for treatment of Lyme disease, they have often tried numerous conventional treatments, with little to no relief. Constant aching, pain, and discomfort send Lyme patients on a wild goose chase for answers and solutions – a frustrating and defeating endeavor.
Many of our Lyme patients report that they have tried a TENS machine for Lyme disease pain. Unfortunately, a TENS machine can be incredibly strong and uncomfortable and has the potential to cause pain and further damage to your system.
Another conventional treatment method for Lyme disease is antibiotics. Antibiotics can be beneficial in the early stages of Lyme disease. But because this disease is so difficult to diagnose, many patients miss the window for this treatment to be successful.
Antibiotics can be a lifesaver and have saved countless lives, but many people experience bowel problems for weeks to years after being prescribed them. Antibiotics not only kill bad bacteria in your body, but they also kill beneficial bacteria in your gut, throwing your digestive system out of whack. Side effects like nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea are common for those who are on an antibiotic regimen.
Our Natural Approach to Treating Lyme Disease
We take a natural and holistic approach to treating Lyme disease. Sadly, most of our Lyme Patients find us at the later stages of disease progression. They are often at a point where conventional treatment attempts are no longer providing any benefit, and they are at a loss for answers.
Once more severe effects like facial paralysis and liver damage have set in, patients feel as if there is no hope. Of course, early intervention is always best, but we have been able to help people with Lyme even in later stages. How do we do this?
Microcurrent Therapy for Lyme’s disease and dietary changes are two of the key ways in which we approach treatment at Pain Free For Life. Let’s delve a little deeper into how we use these treatments to provide relief and healing for our patients.
Can Microcurrent Neurofeedback Benefit Those Who Suffer from Lyme’s Disease?
The short answer is yes! When dealing with Lyme disease, we take an autoimmune approach with microcurrent therapy. Here are two ways we do this:
- Working primarily through vagus nerve stimulation, we can reduce inflammation across the entire body, and in turn, reduce the pain and discomfort associated with Lyme.
- Another protocol we employ is the gamma energizer technique. This protocol provides brain-friendly low-level stimulation. Through the gamma energizer protocol, we can help cleanse the brain’s neural pathways and work to eliminate the chronic fatigue that is often associated with Lyme.
By taking a whole-body approach, we are also able to support the organ systems, optimizing their functionality. A holistic approach allows our patients to work towards a resolution, rather than just suppressing the symptoms.
Why Does Microcurrent Work for Lyme Disease?
Microcurrent is body friendly. In fact, it’s 1000x weaker than the average TENS device so it doesn’t present the problems and side effects many patients treated with TENS experience. Furthermore, our equipment uses sinusoidal waveforms. These are body-friendly waveforms that are compatible with your own body’s communication system.
We avoid more common types of waves used in TENS units, such as square and sawtooth waveforms, as they are foreign to your body. Your system will eventually become accustomed to these foreign waveforms, culminating in zero effect. As with medications, the body can become “immune” to these types of waves, leaving little to no relief.
Diet for Lyme Disease
As one of the pillars of The Hache Protocol for Pain Resolution™, proper nutrition can help aid in treating Lyme disease symptoms.
The main thing to focus on with your diet if you have Lyme disease is avoiding inflammation. Avoid “red flag” foods that feed inflammation and Lyme like gluten, dairy, caffeine, alcohol, grains, GMOs, and sugar.
Foods that help ease the symptoms of Lyme disease are as follows:
- Fatty fish– such as salmon and mackerel provide beneficial Omega 3 fatty acids and protein that help you recover and treat symptoms of Lyme disease.
- Sunflower Seeds– are packed with vitamin E, which helps to boost your body’s natural antibodies and fight against inflammation.
- Turmeric– is known for its extraordinary ability to treat inflammation, but did you know it can also help you to avoid complications like secondary bacterial infections?
- Leafy Greens– possess anti-inflammatory benefits, boost your energy, and improve your heart health.
- Chickpeas– are loaded with Vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is critical to helping support your immune system, which is stressed during a bout of Lyme.
- Sweet Potatoes– are an excellent source of Vitamin A, which works to support a healthy immune system suppress secondary infections.
- Garlic Essential Oil– A study conducted in 2018 found that essential garlic oil is one of 10 essential oils that assist patients in recovering from Lyme disease faster.
