Lyme Disease and COVID

Tick-borne disease, vector-borne illnesses, and COVID-19 is a combination of bacteria, parasites, and viruses that can render you completely disabled. These organisms and viral particles enter the cell and cause disruption of the organelles, such as the mitochondria (energy), ribosomes (RNA production), and may even alter gene expression via an epigenetic effect on the genes contained within the nucleus.

Additionally, these infections affect the inflammasome in such a way as to elevate pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-6, TGFB, TNF alpha, and many others. When inflammation becomes out of control, tissue destruction occurs and organs are not able to function properly.

Treatment of these infections simultaneously is the key to getting well in addition to supporting affected organelles and organs. Mitochondrial support and detoxification must occur for you to get well.

Mitochondrial support can include:
NADH, CoQ10, Rhodiola, Ashwaganda, and multivitamins while detoxification can include: lemon water, Alka Seltzer Gold, chlorella, charcoal, pectin, bamboo, bentonite clay, diatomaceous earth, and drugs such as welchol and cholestyramine.

Antimicrobial Herbs:
Teasel Leaf, Garlic, Houtynnia, Japanese Knotweed, Andrographis, Thyme, Smilax, Berberine, Artemesia, Yarrow, Black Walnut, Wormwood

Antiviral Herbs:
Olive, Lomatium, Monolaurin 

Combining antimicrobial herbs with antiviral herbs can help lower the pathogen burden, and restore homeostasis. Pharmaceuticals may be required as well, depending on the patient and severity of the illness.
