April to September is the time when ticks are most active and if you are someone who likes to get out walking in the hills, forests or parks, it is important to be vigilant and take precautions, particularly in areas where there are lots of deer.
It is important though to realise you may not know you have been bitten by a tick, you may not get the “bulls-eye” rash and indeed, even if you have been bitten, you may not get Lyme’s disease. Unfortunately, for many who do get it, the disease may only cause problems many months later.
Lyme’s disease is best addressed with an integrated approach, combining general and complementary medicine. I have worked with a number of clients with Lyme’s disease and it is a complex disease. Recovery is slow, but the important thing to remember is recovery is possible. But it takes time. There is nothing more rewarding though than to see someone slowly getting their energy, or brain or sleep back and returning to normal life.
We start with the symptoms that are most troubling you and work through them, moving to the next one as each is resolved. If you think you may have Lyme’s disease, please get in touch and we will advise you re next steps, or if you have been diagnosed, please get in touch to enquire about a treatment plan.
