Lyme Disease and Stevia

Lyme Disease and Stevia

In the last year there have been a lot of articles circulating claiming Stevia is a cure for Lyme disease. Before you run to your local store and by a box of Stevia please continue on reading the research that is being done in this area.

As of now, researchers are not claiming it to be a cure. While Dr Eva Sapi from New Haven University, has done a research study showing that Stevia leaf extract could be considered as an effective agent against B. burgdorferi, this research is being done within a petri dish right now, not in a human. This is a positive step forward however. So far the New Haven team of researchers found that exposing B. burgdorferi to stevia leaf extract killed the forms B. burgdorferi spirochetes, spheroplast (L-form), round bodies along with biofilm forms.

Dr. Richard Horowitz, a well known tick borne disease treating doctor and researcher is also doing research with Stevia. He is using Stevia in a combination with other medicines such as tetracyclines, rifampin, Dapsone and others to see how it works in eradicating spirochetes and biofilm. He says he is having some success so far. Again, this study is in a lab, not in human beings yet.

These researchers are using leaf Stevia extract. They are not using the processed powdered forms you find at the store.

We’d like to invite Dr Eva Sapi, Dr Richard Horowitz or anyone else researching the use of Stevia in Lyme disease treatment to comment.

Here is a collection of articles related to Stevia and Lyme disease.

One thought on “Lyme Disease and Stevia”

  1. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2004. I was given antibiotics, which seemed to help. However, I still suffer from some of the symptoms, such as chronic fatigue, joint pain, and even neurological problems in controlling hand and leg movements. The inability to walk right etc, are temporary and generally happen when I am really tired and have been working hard. I lost touch with reality. Suspecting it was the medication I Went off the antibiotics (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started on Lyme disease natural herbal formula I ordered from GREEN HOUSE HERBAL CLINIC, I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, my symptoms totally declined over a 6 weeks use of the Green House Lyme disease natural herbal formula. I’m 70 now and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed! (Visit their website www . Greenhouseherbalclinic . com) I am thankful to nature, herbs are truly gift from God. I can now go about my daily activities and the pain is greatly diminished. Don’t give up hope, fellow sufferers. Share with friends!!
