But what if you can't work and don't have family or friends to provide for you? What can you do to get rid of Lyme if you don't have a nice fistful of lumpy dough to toss around?
Consider that strategic choices when choosing a Lyme/detoxification protocol can enable some to battle Lyme without spending too much money. I wish I could say the following protocol would be sufficient for ALL of us, but there's no one-size-fits-all strategy when it comes to treating Lyme, especially since multiple infections/dysfunctions are usually implicated in the disease, many requiring separate adjuncts.
But if you are nearly broke (and even if you aren't) the following is a great Lyme strategy. And if you're lucky, it may be enough to finish the battle for you.
1)First, you'll need something to get the critters. Amazingly, taking sea salt and high doses of Vitamin C has been shown, in many cases, to be sufficient for combatting Lyme and co-infections. Check out the Yahoo! group Lyme Strategies for information on how to do this protocol. www.lymestrategies.com. Salt/C is emerging as one of the most safe and effective treatments for Lyme.
2)Lyme is great at creating nutritional deficiencies and multiple biochemical dysfunctions, so you'll want to at least get a bottle of Spirulina, magnesium, trace minerals and fish oil. These four items will provide much of the supplemental nutrition your body needs to help battle the infections.
3) Finally, you'll want to do something to get all those dead bugs and neurotoxins which Lyme produces out of your body. Fortunately, great kidney, lymph, blood and liver detoxification protocols can be prepared using mostly fresh foods. These detox recipes can be found by doing a search on the internet. One additional (but necessary) purchase would be an enema bag, which is useful for doing coffee enemas (which detoxifies the colon and liver) and can be bought at Wal-Mart for $5.00.
