Far infrared rays are anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and can therefore be beneficial in the treatment of a variety of diseases and that is why the FDA recognizes it as a medical device. The BioMat is also famous for putting out a powerful stream of negative ions which are instrumental in balancing the metabolism by activating healthy enzyme function in the cells of the body.

Tens Machine

With Lyme Disease comes a lot of inflammation and pain. Many Lyme patients use a Tens machine to help alleviate some of that pain. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is the use of electric current produced by a device to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes.

You can usually get this done at a Chiropractor, Naturopath or buy a machine for at home. One of the positive sides to a tens machine is they are generally low cost and easy to use.

Why Can’t I Get Better? Solving the Mystery of Lyme and Chronic Disease

You may not know that you have Lyme. It can mimic every disease process including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, autoimmune conditions like MS, psychiatric conditions like depression and anxiety, and cause significant memory and concentration problems, mimicking early dementia. It is called the “Great Imitator,” and inaccurate testing-combined with a fierce, ongoing debate that questions chronic infection-makes it difficult for sufferers to find effective care.

  1. Fantastic Job, Lisa. Wow!!! I will be back often. Hopefully, 3 months from now I will have something new to add to your list. Aloha, Jim Berger

  2. lisa, WOW!! overload with all those references wonderfully alphabetized!!

    1 suggestion i have is this:

    showing a year for REVISED treatment types since they are NOT revised yearly, etc….

    example, ILADS lyme guidelines, etc.

    again, what a TREASURE CHEST of links/sources galore!

    kudos lisa again for outdoing yourself as sick as you are!

  3. Something called ed LDA/LDI is something someone just told me about. Don’t know enough, but it is helping the person who told me about it and her 7 year old son.

  4. Blood ozone therapy should be added to the list. I have had more success treating with this than either prescription or herbal antibiotics.

    1. I am currently on the Zhang protocol (2 weeks) the herbs are strong and I have been herxing. Dr. Zhang I think is onto to something and I really hope it works for me.
