Immune Support for chronic Lyme disease

Our immune system is designed to protect us from invading microorganisms like Lyme disease. A properly functioning immune system recognizes a threat, aggressively responds, and then backs off.

The adrenal glands help the immune system function properly by balancing it with cortisol, which helps the immune system to stop its attack when it is no longer needed. When adrenal fatigue occurs, as it often does with Lyme disease, the immune system continues to attack, leading to increased inflammation.

Once our immune system is not functioning properly, not only do we leave ourselves open to all the opportunistic microorganisms waiting to attack, but we are unable to fight disease. 

In order to beat any illness, especially chronic Lyme disease, your immune system needs to function properly.

Here are important things you can do to correct immune system dysfunction:

  • immunomodulators (eleutherococcus, astragalus, rhodiola, ashwagandha, and schisandra)
  • supplement with essential vitamins and minerals
  • eat organic whole foods
  • drink plenty of pure filtered water
  • exercise
  • spend time outdoors in the sun (unless you are a believer that Lyme disease is fed by vitamin D)

Repairing your GI tract and reversing adrenal fatigue are absolutely necessary to improve immune function and finally get rid of chronic Lyme disease.

Herb Pharm Ashwagandha is one of our favorite products as it is an adaptogenic herb for the immune system and adrenal glands.
