Under Our Skin – Lyme Disease

“There is general agreement that most cases are mild to moderate if treated promptly. But therein lies a problem. As of yet, there are no reliable tests for Lyme disease.

Fewer than 50% of patients diagnosed with Lyme ever find the offending tick, and the telltale bull’s eye rash associated with the disease is only seen in 10-40% of the cases. Available blood tests yield a high percentage of false negatives due to the crafty nature of the spirochete, which is able to change into a dormant, undetectable cyst form, or hide within white blood cells, the very cells that are supposed to destroy invading bacteria.

Further, new research shows that the bacteria are able to exchange genetic material with one another and change the outer proteins of its cell walls, allowing the organisms to mutate and effectively hide from targeted human antibodies. [Read Bacteria TalkThe situation is complicated by the fact that there are over 300 strains of the bacteria that cause Lyme disease, and the test kits used by most labs don’t detect all of these varieties. This results in thousands of false negative Lyme tests, delaying the treatment of many infected patients.

Lyme disease has been called the new “great imitator” because of its ability to mimic other diseases. Patients are routinely told they might have multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease, fibromyalgia, systemic Lupus, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue syndrome or rheumatoid arthritis. According to one physician, there is not one diagnostic feature of Lyme disease, except for the rash, that is different from any of these other conditions….”

Go to Under Our Skin to watch the informatonal trailer. It may be the fastest growing infectious disease in the United States, yet each year, thousands are misdiagnosed. In this upcoming documentary feature (in 2007), we investigate the shocking human, scientific, and political dimensions of Lyme disease.

  1. So is there an essential oil product that can be effective in treating early-stage Lyme’s disease? I had a tick bite two days ago.

    • Hi Ray,

      I do not have a personal story to share but in my files I found the following testimonials which you may find helpful. Let me know if you need assistance choosing essential oils or need help placing an order at my website. ~ Evelyn

      I had supported a client of mine who had been bed ridden for years with Lymes disease. She was really so sick and has 3 young children and could not really even be there for them a she was just out of it on so many levels.

      So with the files I had and the EODR [Essential Oils Desk Reference] book I came up with a protocol and she was very willing to make changes. she had been to so many different doctors and healers etc… within 3 months of staying on the protocol faithfully she was 100% better. Isn’t this fantastic and now she has so many people lining up to get helped my her with our amazing Young Living oils.

      So just thought I would share this with all of you because she had written sent me what she had done each day recently and I remember there being a dialogue on Lymes recently.

      be well

      My protocol to beat Lyme:
      – removed all petro chemicals from my home
      – stopped drinking coffee and wine
      – stopped eating sugar, white flour and dairy (includes pizza!) should also remove meat from diet
      – drank InnerLight Super Greens a few times a day
      – took Alkalime first thing every morning and last thing at night
      – drank Ningxia Red juice each morning before breakfast
      – took Sulferzyme for my achy joints
      – took internally antibiotic an essential oil combo 3x/day: oregano, lemon and mountain savory (in veggie capsule #3193, put 4 drops of each YL essential oil and a few drops of olive oil or V-6 #3031)
      – periodically rubbed thieves and frankincense on the soles of my feet, sometimes took internally as well
      – enjoyed raindrop sessions weekly (directory of Raindrop Trainers may help you find a practitioner in your area http://www.raindroptraining.com/directory.html )
      Within 3 months I felt 100% better!!! ~ :) Lucy

      Lyme’s Disease using YL Essential Oils

      Remember: it is very important to follow the schedule, even if you begin feeling better!
      Always adjust by weight. Could always use YL Inner Defense in place of (check with Rudy or George on that and see if it would be in addition to the frankincense (?) not sure what the ratios are on the Inner Def compared to this recipe.
      Only using YL Essential Oils for the following!

      In a capsule add: 10 drops of Thieves
       4 drops of Oregano
       2 drops of Frankincense

      Take one capsule 3 times a day for 10 days

      Off for 7 days

      Take one capsule 2 times a day for 10 days

      Off for 7

      Take one capsule 2 times a day for 10 days

      No liver damage. No residuals.

      Very beneficial in addition to the remedy would be to have a Raindrop Therapy Session once a week until symptom free.
