Lyme disease is an infection caused by bacteria that gets into the skin via deer ticks. The infection generates a lot of signs and symptoms that in later stages can be life threatening.
Patients have different reactions, but almost all of them pass by the same symptoms, one of the things that is very common, is that the immune system is depressed.
Part of the disease goes with the inflammation of the big bowel, if your gut is not working, how can you absorb nutrients?
That is why changing to a specific carbohydrate diet will help Lyme patients to restore their health, and it is very important to give an extra attention about right nutrition for Lyme disease.
This specific diet is based on a gluten-free, lactose-free and sugar-free food, that will restore the bowel to a normal activity, decreasing and finally getting rid of the inflammation.
Basically it is a diet to treat any disease that produces big bowel inflammation, like Celiac disease, Crohns disease, Diverticulitis, Lyme disease and others.
The way the diet will work is diminishing the bowel inflammation, allowing the absorption of nutrients and with this improvement in the arrival of nutrients to the blood stream the immune system will get stronger.
With a better immune system the patient can lead better with the infection caused by the spirochetes and then be more prone to be cured or at least in a much better health than without the diet.
The sequence is:
- Injured bowel mucous membrane-won’t be able to digest some complex carbohydrates like bread, rice, etc..
- Energy source for bacteria- Unbroken carbohydrates are an excellent energy source for harmful bacteria that multiplies and will create further damage.
- Mucus Secretion- this is a defensive mechanism of the mucus membrane to protect against the acid, but also prevents the digestion of carbohydrates, which makes a vicious cycle.
- Malabsorption of nutrients- weakening the immune system.
- Immune reaction- the bowel cells produce substances that create an autoimmune response that is the cause of the inflammation and then of increase permeability that can lead to more inflammatory bowel disease.
In this way, if a non inflammatory diet is eaten, the bowel will be able to digest the complex carbohydrates and the immune system will be reinforced and able to fight the Lyme disease.
More into Ingredients of right nutrition for Lyme disease:
The diet is a gluten free diet which means wheat is not allowed, also casein, that is the protein of dairy products and any kind of sugar.

Lyme disease has quickly become the most common vector-borne disease since its identification in 1975 as a distinct disease. Borrelia burgdorferi is the bacteria that cause Lyme disease and is carried by its vector, the deer tick. The Lyme disease has deservedly grown into being one of the most despised diseases in North America because of its magnitude and scale of spread.

Prelude to the link: A sound sleep is a prerequisite for healthy living. Most often children are at a risk of being over-diagnosed with ADHD, though the underlying cause may be inability to sleep well. When diagnosed with ADHD, parents of the child must be asked one question –“Is your child sleeping well?” Such children generally have sleep problems with complaints including having nightmares often, waking up feeling tired or sleep apnea and restless legs syndrome. In one study, 50% of the children with ADHD had some sleep-disorder. Other complaints of the children with ADHD as reported by another study mentioned that these children had difficulty in getting up, had more daytime sleepiness and snores.
There has been an unusual climate change for many years. But this year, the possibility of harsh winter and warmer spring are expected. On a malicious downside for Augusta vicinity, there will be a full blast of ticks waiting to bite a warm and fresh blooded meal. Yes, weather changes affect lyme disease. There has been a demonstration for tick examination done by Dr. Gary Wilkes on a 9-year-old Ginger on a Westside Animal Hospital.
The cases of Lyme disease in America are on rise, that is why there have been studies being raised regarding the vaccination of mice to prevent Borrelia burgdorferi’s transmission. Borrelia is the cause of Lyme disease, and according to studies, vaccinating mice can reduce the incidence of infection. Let us go into the details.
A Preview-Lyme disease: Lyme disease is a vector-borne infection (common vectors being white-tailed deer, and other small mammals) caused by spirochete (Borrelia burgdorferi), which is transmitted to humans by bites of ticks belonging to Ixodes. Clinical manifestations may be both cutaneous and systemic, affecting the cardiovascular system, neurological and/or musculoskeletal system. Diagnosis of the disease is a challenge, and is often confirmed by Western Blot and ELISA Test. Managing the Lyme disease is also difficult and judicious use of antibiotics such as (doxycycline, and cephalosporins) is suggested by the guidelines. Avoiding the vectors is the best preventive strategy for Lyme disease. Treating Lyme disease with antibiotics relieves the symptoms and prevents sequelae. In nearly all the cases, antibiotics can treat Lyme disease, even in later stages.
