Lyme disease is growing at epidemic rates, with 30,000 new cases diagnosed each month. Lyme disease is very difficult to diagnose, since only about half of all people who contract Lyme disease ever recall getting a tick bite or bullseye rash. Unfortunately, delays in treatment, even only a few days, can result in a lifetime of chronic symptoms if not treated properly.
Recovery From Lyme Disease Can Be Difficult
While many physicians are beginning to recognize and treat chronic Lyme disease, also known as post-Lyme disease syndrome, many resort only to various antibiotic combination therapies, or singular intravenous (IV) antibiotics. Due to the complex nature of Lyme disease bacteria, Borrelia burgdoferi and Borrelia myamotoi, traditional antibiotics often don’t work, either due to insufficient treatment length or ineffective antibiotic selection. This is due to the fact that Lyme bacteria can change its shape to make itself resistant to certain antibiotics. Lyme bacteria can morph into cysts, or encapsulate themselves into biofilm, thus preventing certain antibiotics, as well as your immune system, from ever reaching the bacteria to destroy it.
With these facts in mind, it is vital to incorporate Lyme treatment options that can kill these cyst and biofilm versions of Lyme bacteria, if there is ever to be hope for full recovery. Here are 3 natural remedies that have been shown to either kill all forms of Lyme bacteria, or allow other conventional therapies to work better, and minimize the side effects of antibiotic therapy.
3 Products You NEED In Your Treatment Arsenal
1) Stevia whole leaf extract – A recent laboratory study demonstrated a complete kill rate of Lyme bacteria by exposing it to whole leaf stevia extract. This inexpensive treatment is well tolerated, and does not appear to interact with other therapies. It is important to mention that this study tested different versions of stevia whole leaf extract. Therefore, it is important to select one of the versions that was shown effective in the study. The one we recommend can be found by clicking here.
2) Serrapeptase – An enzyme derived from silkworms, serrapeptase is a powerful addition to any Lyme disease treatment. This enzyme helps to break down the cyst shell and outer biofilm coating, which allows your immune system, as well as other anti-bacterial treatments, to penetrate the outer coating or shell and kill the Lyme bacteria. While other enzymes are also able to accomplish this task, such as nattokinase and lumbrokinase, serrapeptase has consistently produced a better laboratory result, at a cheaper price point than lumbrokinase.
3) N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) – NAC has been shown to also break up biofilm, thus making other natural and prescription anti-bacterials work better to destroy Lyme bacteria. Another big advantage of NAC is that it is one of the 3 main amino acids necessary for the production of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that triples the effect of vitamin C, and helps to rid your body of toxic debris following the destruction of pathogens like Lyme bacteria.

It is imperative that you consult your physician or provider before starting this, or any other, treatment protocol. Although these nutrients are powerful by themselves, they should be part of a comprehensive Lyme disease treatment protocol.
