Heard about Lyme disease in the news, on Facebook, from friends but still don't know what Lyme disease really is?
Come hear a talk by practitioner Alan Grazioso on February 8, 2017 at the Arlington Public Library. Event is free and open to the public but seats are limited.
ACUTE & CHRONIC LYME SYMPTOMS
Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system. Lyme disease is diagnosed based on symptoms, physical findings (e.g., rash), and the possibility of exposure to infected ticks. Most cases of Lyme disease can be treated successfully with a few weeks of antibiotics yet chronic lyme disease can result. Many exports report that chronic lyme develops in 10-20% of these cases. Adding fuel to the fire, there's an entire population (perhaps thousands some experts report) that go undiagnosed each year and only discover they have lyme and/or it's co-infections when chronic symptoms become apparent. In some cases the medical world misdiagnoses Lyme as other illnesses including Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's, MS, Lupus, Early ALS, chronic fatigue syndrome, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and other chronic illnesses.
In addition to the Lyme pathogens, CDC and others report ticks can occasionally transmit other tickborne diseases as well. See the official list from the CDC by clicking here.
Steps to prevent Lyme disease include using insect repellent, removing ticks promptly, applying pesticides, and reducing tick habitat. Currently there's no known vaccine for Lyme nor a one -size--fits- all cure for the disease.
THERE IS HOPE FOR NATURAL TREATMENTS
Biomagnetism has shown much promise and emerges atop a list of alternative treatments for Lyme disease of protocols that do not rely on medication. Yet there are many factors that come into play for an individual's healing from chronic disease such as nutrition, repeated exposure, methylation issues, gene mutations, number of years since first infected, other diseases present in body and other factors.
