Anti-inflammatory and Pain Support for chronic Lyme disease
With Lyme disease you inevitably have chronic inflammation. With chronic inflammation, comes pain.
There is good inflammation and bad inflammation.
Acute inflammation is actually a good thing. It is the body’s attempt at healing an injury.
Chronic inflammation is another story, and occurs when there is a constant stressor to the body. This can occur from chronic illnesses, like Chronic Lyme disease, eating junk food, allergies and food sensitivities, heavy metal toxicity, root canals, environmental pollutants, cigarette smoking, oxidative stress, obesity, poor sleep, or lack of exercise.
Chronic inflammation causes a variety of problems to your endocrine system, central nervous system, cardiovascular system, and respiratory system. This disruption can lead to pain, arthritis, irritable bowel disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, candidiasis, cystic fibrosis, headaches, gout, heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, autoimmune conditions, Parkinson's disease, altered immune function, and respiratory distress.
A blood test called C-reactive protein can be performed to see if you have chronic inflammation. Ask your doctor if it is appropriate to run the test.
We have included pain support with anti-inflammatories because pain is generally caused by inflammation. Once you extinguish the inflammation, your pain will improve.
Chronic inflammation can be treated holistically with proteolytic enzymes, herbs, anti-inflammatory diets, essential fatty acids, good fats in your diet, eliminating food allergens, exercise, and relaxation.
You will notice that we do not carry any essential fatty acids in the form of fish oil on our site. That is because there is enough evidence that the amount of heavy metal toxicity is not worth the benefits. No matter how 'pure' a company claims there fish oils are, they are still contaminated with some levels of heavy metals.
We carry BodyBio/E-Lyte's Balance Oil, a vegetarian alternative that is actually better for you than any fish oil on the market today.
