When the Lyme is being killed, it produces its own neurotoxin in defense. This subsequently clogs the blood, lymph, liver and colon which slows down the detoxification pathways.

As long as the patient is in treatment for Lyme, detoxification needs to be ongoing.

Simple Detoxification Methods

Colon Detoxification

Colon hydrotherapy, also called colonics, is the gentle washing out of the large intestine.

If colonics are not possible, there are a number of ways to increase bowel activity: magnesium oxide, vitamin C in crystal form, digestive enzymes, or herbal supplements such as hyssop. These stimulate the muscle action of the colon called peristalsis.

When there are excessive bowels movements due to diarrhea or irritable bowel syndrome IBS, it is preferable to begin with one colon reflorastation therapy. This therapy is the rectal introduction of probiotics. Due to the acidity of the stomach, most probiotics do not easily reach the large intestine.

Parasite Detoxification

Parasites inflame the lining of the GI tract which blocks the absorption of nutrients. There are homeopathic remedies that can assist. For example Tincture of Black Walnut

Liver Detoxification

Toxins in the body can cause a decrease in liver metabolism or sluggish liver.

Symptoms of a sluggish liver are fatigue, headaches, blurred vision, increased fat storage, and hormone imbalance.

You can support the daily liver detox with the juicing of beetroot - barley grass and Kale.

Lymphatic Detoxification

The lymph vessels are located near our arteries and veins. These carry toxins and wastes away from the cells.

There are two forms of lymphatic drainage therapy: manual and electronically assisted.

The most effective and rapid method is the electronically assisted. These treatments may last from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. It is important to not overload the system when taking your first treatment. If flu-like symptoms, nausea, or headaches occur, be sure the colon and liver are well supported.

It is important to drink plenty of water and take a detoxification bath.

One of the easiest products to use is epsom salt. At least one pound of epsom salt is added to the bath water. Submerge the body as much as possible for 15 to 20 minutes.

Use a loofah or vegetable brush to thoroughly brush the skin at the end of the bath. Other bath products, particularly those with EDTA can assist in the additional removal of toxins and heavy metals.

Baths may be incorporated into any protocol as it stimulates the elimination of toxins through the skin.

What is important is that you recognise the toxic problem being experienced and address it immediately.
