What is Lyme Disease
Lyme disease can be a really nasty disease. It is a bacterial infection, that can be passed on from ticks to humans. Damn you ticks!!! They are always spoiling a good walk.
What are the symptoms of Lyme Disease
They are wide ranging and can come and go. The most noticable is a large red circular rash around where you have been biten. This can appear months after you have actually been bitten which is annoying.
Other usual symptoms are fever like temperatures, headaches, migraines, fatigue, and muscle & joint pain.
How many people have Lyme Disease
Around 30000 people get sick from Lyme disease per year in USA, but because the symptoms can be very mild or put down to other things. It is estimated it is actually 10 times that figure.
I live in the UK, and Lyme Disease infected ticks can be a problem in the South and in the Highlands of Scotland. But it is not a huge problem where I live, there are ticks where I live as my dogs can confirm but it is unlikely they will spread Lyme Disease.
How do you treat Lyme Disease
Basically the quicker you can get treatment the better.
If you notice a tick on you, then remove it safely with a tick tool and dispose of it. Then seek medical advice, in which you will likely be given a course of antibiotics.
For most people if it is caught early this will cure it. However, some people suffere from Lyme Disease symptons for the rest of their lives. There is not a lot of information on why this may be the case.
I have yet to see any mainstream advice on if and when diet, could help or hinder your recovery from Lyme Disease.
Carnivore Diet vs Lyme Disease
I have a few carnivore diet success stories where people have said they have noticeably improved and reversed their persistent Lyme Disease symptoms with the Carnivore Diet.
Probably the biggest success story on this matter is Charlene Anderson, who along with her family have been eating only Ribeye steaks for over 20 years.
And far from being nutrient deficient wrecks, they look like Greek Gods and Goddesses.
If you have helped manage your Lyme Disease through the Carnivore Diet, then please let me know.
Here are the carnivore diet success stories I have on my blog relating to Lyme Disease: https://ketogenicendurance.com/tag/lyme-disease/
Christine “From the first week I was less tired and had less joint pain. A big relief because pain everyday, starts to make you so damn tired. My migraines never came back and after stopping eating greens and vegetables my intestinal pains were gone as well. Both things I had from birth. I had a lot of issues because of lyme disease and was nearly at a point I couldn’t walk anymore. I couldn’t lift things and even brushing my teeth became painful. In a few weeks after I started carnivore I felt better and after a couple of months I got even more energy back. I had no trouble sleeping, no joint pains, no migraines and no eczema. My muscles got stronger. After I started taking supplements from Ancestral like the bone marrow and the liver I was not only the old me again, but even better then the old me. I struggle eating head to toe that’s why I use the supplements.”
Rebekah “I am an overcomer of over ten autoimmune diseases, chronic lyme disease, chronic c-diff, multiple mood disorders, IBS, IBD, diverticulitis, and more.”
Maria Emmerich “I notice an increase in energy or really a more consistent energy. I was already keto for almost 20 years prior to carnivore so I was already used to better mental clarity, increased energy, etc. So this was like one notch better. Going keto took me from a 3 to a 9. Carnivore took it to a 10 (or 11, LOL). Craig has seen amazing results with the reduction in pain he has from Lyme. When he stick to strict carnivore his migrating pain in his joints is completely gone. We also see some really amazing results with clients, especially those with skin issues. They have psoriasis or eczema that they have struggled with for years and within days it is gone. Also huge improvements in brain health like bipolar disease, depression and other issues.”
