Lyme Disease & Homeopathy

Bitten by a tick?

I was asked about Lyme disease and whether homeopathy can help and yes it can but prevention is always better than cure.

If however you have been bitten by a tick I recommend taking Ledum 200c as soon as you notice you have been bitten. It is one of the first aid remedies that everyone should have in their first aid kit.  It is also thought to have a prophylactic value in relation to tetanus, so a worthwhile remedy to keep and it is great for puncture wounds too.

Sadly, not everyone notices that they have been bitten until it is too late or until the bulls-eye rash associated with Lyme appears which can be anytime between 3-30 days after being bitten.

I would still recommend taking Ledum as soon as possible especially as bacteria from a tick bite doesn’t always show up in blood tests until a few months later.

Many people with chronic fatigue or unexplained symptoms have Lyme Disease. Some of the symptoms are-

  • Feeling chilly or have a fever
  • Headaches and/ or dizziness
  • Depression
  • Swollen joints and / or swollen lymph nodes
  • Muscles Pains & Shooting pains
  • Tingling
  • Stiff neck

If you have been diagnosed with Lyme Disease or have chronic symptoms as described above please feel free to contact me to see how I might be able to help you using homeopathy.
