What is Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease is the most common tick borne illness in the US. It is caused by a bacteria which is very hard for our immune system to detect and fight. It is only caused by certain species of tick which are more prevalent in the northern states, but the range of Lyme is expanding. Also, many who get Lyme disease do not know they have it if they do not notice they were bitten by a tick and find out years later. The first stages of the disease look like a bad case of the flu, and so if the person does not know they were bitten the doctor may not recognize the disease for what it is. If it is not caught in the first stages of the disease it can progress and cause many debilitating physical and neurological symptoms. These symptoms can persist despite antibiotic treatment if the disease has progressed for too long. (1)
Prevention and Treatment of Lyme
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) “Most cases of Lyme disease can be treated successfully with a few weeks of antibiotics. Steps to prevent Lyme disease include using insect repellent, removing ticks promptly, applying pesticides, and reducing tick habitat”(2) Always wear bug spray that also works against ticks, make sure to check yourself or have a friend check hard to reach areas for ticks after an outing into the woods. If you notice flu-like symptoms shortly after you get a tick bite, make sure to go to the doctor and tell them you were bitten by a tick.
Scott’s story is an example of what can happen when Lyme disease progresses into later stages. This is an account of what Palmetto Harmony can potentially do for someone who has late stage Lyme disease. When I first met Scott, he walked into the Palmetto Harmony offices desperate for anything that might give him some relief from his Lyme’s symptoms. “I thought I was dying” he says. “I had joint pain, brain fog, anxiety and other neurological issues. I’d tried other holistic vitamins and minerals to for Lyme’s, but they had no effect. My home healthcare nurse recommended I try Palmetto Harmony.” Scott came to our facility and talked with me about what products he could use. He was feeling so awful that I let him try our Aura vape with the demo unit. The results were almost instantaneous. He looked at me incredulously. “Is this real?” He said “I’m actually feeling better already!”. I could visibly notice a difference in his demeanor, he looked much more relaxed. Scott had been suffering from anxiety brought on by Lyme disease.
Scott has now been using Palmetto Harmony products for almost ten months. He claims that within three days he saw results and was feeling much better. “Although I still have my long term symptoms, my acute symptoms are all gone thanks to Palmetto Harmony. I’ve seen slow and steady improvement in my joint pain, fatigue, brain fog, anxiety and other neurological issues. My tremors are now gone!” He says he tried a self experiment to see what the oil was doing too. After not taking the Palmetto Harmony oil for 3 days and felt his symptoms return. “I still have issues once in a while depending on my immune system, but overall my health is substantially better and much improved! I will not stop taking Palmetto Harmony and hope that, long term, I can eradicate all my Lyme symptoms.”
