Flu-like Symptoms

About 10 days after the tick bite, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, and after the rash has begun, flu-like symptoms will occur. This includes fever, chills, headache, fatigue and muscle aches.


Lyme disease can trigger inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain, known as the meninges. This is a condition known as meningitis which can cause symptoms such as fever, stiff neck and severe headache. The inflammation around the brain can interfere with the nerves resulting in a variety of conditions. Bell's palsy, temporary paralysis of the facial muscles, is one neurological effect. Other neurological effects include visual disturbances, irritability, decreased concentration, inhibition of memory and sleep disorders. Nerve damage can also occur in the arms or legs resulting in numbness or a tingling sensation in the hands or feet.

According to the American Academy of Family Physicians website, some symptoms of the neurological damage done by Lyme disease may include mood swings, difficulty remembering things or concentrating, a loss of memory and muscle weakness. The University of Maryland Medical Center warns that meningitis, poor motor coordination and Bell's palsy, a temporary paralysis of facial muscles, may also occur. Signs that meningitis might have taken hold in the brain include headaches and neck stiffness.

Heart Problems

Fewer than 10 percent of infected people develop heart problems, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Heart problems associated with Lyme disease include irregularities in heart rhythm, including heart palpitations or a slowing of the heart rate. Less obvious symptoms of heart issues caused by Lyme disease include light-headedness, shortness of breath and fainting. Chest pain may also occur in some individuals.


A specific type of arthritis named Lyme arthritis may develop in some individuals exposed to Lyme disease, explains The arthritis from Lyme disease often strikes the knees and arthritic attacks can last up to a few months at a time. During an attack, joints may feel painful and start to swell. Antibiotics may be used to treat chronic Lyme disease that presents with arthritis symptoms. Pain medication, especially non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and siphoning fluid from swollen joints can help ease sore, arthritic joints. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, approximately 60 percent of untreated people with Lyme disease will go on to develop arthritis and for 10 to 20 percent, the arthritis will be chronic.

That is what the experts of health have to say.....that's all well and good but it makes you a chronic patient is what it makes. "YOU HAVE LYME ARTHRITIS" what a have lyme that's all. Lyme does hurt your joints, if they call Lyme arthritis that's at least a condition insurance companies understand. The doctor may call it Lyme arthritis but your billing or MIB will say arthritis. Your treatment will be for arthritis not Lyme how is treating joint pain ever going to help the root cause? How is chasing symptoms ever going to cure anyone?

Chasing the symptoms of lyme will make you a chronic patient.

Treat yourself for the cure …deal with the symptoms …but treat the  root of the problem.

I had a ton of joint pain I was always wondering will this ever go away and I even said to myself I must have arthritis.

There is a clinical reason for the arthritis; Lyme throws up a smokescreen when it cork screws into you …and your immune system attacks healthy cells causing joint painbut lets not worry about that. Because that is a symptom, chasing symptoms is like chasing chickens in the back yard……you look stupid.

Turmeric and Pineapples will help your joint pain  

As you walk your daily Lyme walk you give your body all the tools to fix the problem and that will remove your symptoms. Turn your food into medicine and your medicine into food. It’s just that simple.

Anti-inflammatory and gut healing ingredients:

Mango has various antioxidant compounds like quercetin and isoquercetin, which help to protect the body against colon cancer. It’s also filled with Vitamin A, C, and many different carotenoids that help to boost the immune system and fight inflammation.

Papaya has several proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzymes called papain and chymopapain that lower inflammation and improve healing. It is also high in vitamins C, E and beta-carotenes, which are good at reducing inflammation

Ginger has high levels of gingerol, which gives it its natural spicy flavor, and acts as an anti-inflammatory in the body.

Turmeric is a member of the ginger family that contains the active ingredient curcumin, which is known for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. Turmeric itself has anti-bacteria and anti-fungal properties as well. 

Cinnamon has been shown in studies to reduce levels of cytokines (inflammatory regulatory molecules) in the body. It also has antibacterial and antiviral properties.

Flax seeds, chia seeds and walnuts are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, which are potent anti-inflammatory aids. 

Probiotics are the“good” and friendly bacteria that help us properly break down and digest our food. They help keep our gut in check and prevent ‘bad’ bacteria from overgrowth. Taking a highly concentrated dose (25-100 billion units a day) of probiotics daily can help you regain a healthy balance of bacteria in your gut.

L-Glutamine is an amino acid that is fundamental to the wellbeing of our digestive and immune systems. Glutamine is great for repairing damage to the gut, helping the gut lining to regrow and repair, undoing the damage caused by leaky gut

Ingredients of a great joint smoothie

• 1½ cups of unsweetened flax milk
• ½ cup  mangos
• ½ cup fresh papaya
• ¼ cups walnuts
• ½ inch fresh ginger root
• ½ inch fresh turmeric root

• 1 cup of coconut water (or almond/coconut milk for a creamier smoothie)
• 1 cup cubed pineapple
• 1/2 – 1 full  banana
• 1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries (frozen makes for a thicker smoothie)

Plus a dash of these herbs in the blender: Aloe vera, Boswellia, Cats Claw, Eucalyptus, Ginger, turmeric and Willow Bark Those are all anti-inflammatory herbs.

When we take a few herbs for our symptoms and take a few for our immune system and take a few herbs for our lymph nodes, when we take a few herbs for all of the systems  in our body... where can the Lyme go that’s safe… The answer is... it just has to lay down and become dormant until you get lazy and stop taking your herbs. Then Lyme will be happy to return; just get lazy and think you are cured and watch what happens… Lyme will come back. You must build a immune system that can and will beat anything that come down the pike.  You never graduate this never ends you will always be treating Lyme it’s a lifestyle not a condition.
