Supplements for Lyme disease – Redorbit

Treating Lyme disease can be difficult particularly if the disease has gone for years without proper treatments. Early stages of Lyme disease can effectively be treated using oral antibiotics. However, treating late stages can be difficult because the disease may resist treatment even after administering antibiotics through IV.

Continued antibiotic administration to the patient may cause more harm than good. This is because the antibiotics may start attacking good bacteria in the body and also they may affect the white blood cell counts causing the immunity to weaken further. Therefore, when the situation has gone to this level, the doctors may recommend supplements for Lyme disease. The doctor should recommend a supplement with the specific need of the patient as chronic Lyme disease is treated per the symptom and not at random. However, there could be a symptom that is universal to all chronic Lyme disease patients. Here are supplements that help treat chronic Lyme disease
