Dude so glad i saw your video. I'm in the exact same position right now, had pain in the middle of my back for about a week....ignored it until finally looked in the mirror. What did i see? A deer tick nestled in with a sack full of blood, freaked out and ripped it out the exact WRONG WAY. Had to go to the docs to get the head out. Stayed up until 7am this morning on the internet reading through NIGHTMARE stories of lymes disease sufferers, scared the SHIT out of me. Can you believe how heavy some of the symptoms are? It's like a super bacteria that mimics, hides, imitates, attacks, retreats, lays dormant....after all the hours on the net last night i've come to the same conclusion that a mix of antibiotics and natural therapies is the way to go. I also haven't had pharmaceutical antibiotics in over ten years.

I've been dealing with it for many years! Hard to get treatment in Canada! I have done a round with some antibiotics but started feeling quite badly again and therefore I am thinking something is hanging on as these parasites are sneaky and can change completely. So I am going to try Sarsaparilla and you can view "The Herb Guy" on youtube there are 2 segments on lyme and sarsaparilla and he has others on youtube too. Both he and his daughter contracted Lyme disease so I think he kmows what he is talking about. Good luck and happy healing!

All ailments are the result of disharmony in the life force. Natural treatments for Lyme disease are traditionally believed to balance the ENTIRE BEING, bringing mind, body, and soul into harmony for lasting results. In Homeopathy, it is believed that a balance or equilibrium should be maintained in different life processes. Homeopathic remedies (C128 LD Nosodes formula, C98 cellular oxygenator) work on the emotional and mental levels, along with the cellular level, to ensure that the entire being is brought into harmony.

I've been diagnosed 1 time with Lymes, and have been bitten total of 3 times. Each time was given antibiotics. I prefer to do things more naturally, however under certain circumstances allopathic medicine is my choice. I feel we were given the intelligence to come up with some wonderful medicines. In an emergency room, I want the drugs, not just to be prayed over. I'm smart and informed so I can choose. For Lymes, I choose antibiotics, followed by probiotics & vitamins.

In this particular case, the pharmaceutical is the way to go and then treat naturally. I'm a TCM practitioner - wholly natural if I can be. But sometimes bacteria is bacteria and antibiotics kill it. I'm wondering now if some of the things I am suffering is due to long tern Lyme's. Thank you for the video. I'm going to get tested next week by my GP.
