treat lyme disease with herbs

Dr. Amauri Wellness Centre, a Toronto naturopath clinic, has just published a blog on their website which talks about 7 herbs that may help treat the impact of Lyme Disease on the body and lessen persistent Lyme symptoms. These herbs are often used in what this Wellness Centre terms their ‘integrative functional medicine approach’ to fighting Lyme disease. It is anticipated that by using them they will lessen common Lyme symptoms like brain fog and joint pain, while at the same time supporting the patient's immune system.

Dr. Amauri Caversan, ND, says, “The impact of Lyme Disease is starting to go mainstream because experts are finally realizing just how widespread this often debilitating and potentially fatal disease is. Even though doctors have acknowledged for years that Lyme Disease exists, it wasn’t until recently that this tick-borne ailment has gotten the attention that it deserves to help those that suffer from it. Part of the problem is how often those with Lyme Disease are misdiagnosed due to the hundreds of different symptoms that can be associated with it. Now that testing has improved to a point where it can more accurately identify who suffers from Lyme Disease, health care providers are pooling their knowledge to help discover more ways to help patients with Lyme.”

People who suffer from Lyme disease will be interested in hearing more about the 7-herbs that may help treat Lyme disease that is discussed in the clinic’s recent blog post. All of these medicinal herbs have shown (in-vitro studies) the potential of aiding the fight against the adverse effects that those with Lyme disease experience.

Among the herbs that were mentioned in the blog is Japanese Knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum). It’s an herb that some feel may act as an antioxidant with the potential to reduce Lyme associated inflammation, protect the heart, and shield the central nervous system. Similar hope comes from the use of Cats Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) which may even have some DNA-repairing properties to the mix as well. The blog indicated that there is also hope for treating the symptoms of Lyme disease when using Cryptolepis (Cryptolepis sanguinolenta). This herb is thought to contain antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-amoebic properties. Artemisia (Artemisia annua) is another medicinal herb with over 2,000 years of use that some feel may be beneficial when it comes to treating Lyme disease. Other potentially beneficial Lyme disease-fighting herbs mentioned in the new Dr. Amauri Wellness Centre article include Chameleon Plant (Houttuynia cordata), Chinese Skullcap (Scutellaria Baicalensis), and Black walnut (Juglans nigra).

Dr. Caversan ND added that studies have shown that there is also the potential to receive synergistic benefits when adjuvant herbal therapies combined with doxycycline antibiotics, are used in treating Lyme disease symptoms. These herbs may provide added antimicrobial effects of the drug against Lyme disease which could, in turn, potentially reduce their treatment time.

Dr. Amauri Caversan ND has a special interest in the fight against Lyme disease and other ailments that naturopathic medicine may have the potential to help with. He works in tandem with Arv Buttar, NP to present Lyme disease treatment options that combine conventional medicine with personalized naturopathic care. The Dr. Amauri Wellness Centre offers other natural treatments that include Acupuncture, Integrative Functional Medicine, IV Vitamin Therapy, Detoxification, Bio-Identical Hormone Treatments, and more. The clinic is located in the heart of the Toronto, Ontario area in Yorkville.
