Lyme Disease Hospital
Being diagnosed for lyme disease is hard to figure out if it’s really lyme disease or one of the other 300 diseases it mimics. You can get bit by a tick that can give you lyme disease just about anywhere in the US, but finding a Lyme Disease Hospital near you that specializes in the disease can be hard to find.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by a bacterium known as spirochete, which is spread by tick bites. Lyme disease is described in 3 phases: the early localized disease with skin inflammation; early disseminated disease with heart and nervous system involvement, including nerve palsies and meningitis; and late disease featuring motor and sensory nerve damage, brain inflammation and arthritis.
The Ayurvedic treatment of Lyme disease is aimed at treating the symptoms, preventing complications and boosting the immune status of the body. Medicines like Mahamanjishthadi-Qadha, Gandhak-Rasayan, Sukshma-Triphala, Chandraprabha-Vati and Panch-Tikta-Ghrut-Guggulu can be used to treat the early localized disease involving skin inflammation. These medicines can also eliminate the bacteria from the body. This disease causes inflammation of the heart muscle, resulting in arrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythm, and heart failure. Medicines like Bruhat-Vat-Chintamani, Maha-Vat-Vidhwans-Ras, Ekang-Veer-Ras and Tapyadi-Loh can be used to prevent and treat arrhythmia. Inflammation of the heart muscle can be treated using medicines like Triphala-Guggulu, Punarnavadi-Guggulu, Arjunarishta, Dashmoolarishta, Saarivasav, Nimba (Azadirachta indica), Patol (Tricosanthe dioica), Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), Haritaki (Terminalia chebula), Draksha (Vitis vinifera), Musta (Cyperus rotundus) and Kutaj (Holarrhina antidysentrica).
Since Lyme disease is transmitted by ticks attaching to the body, it is important to use protective clothing and adopt other techniques for the prevention and avoidance of tick bites while staying in, or visiting tick areas. Adequate hygiene should be maintained in order to prevent transmission of this disease.

The mysteries of Lyme disease and its various maladies is allusive and difficult to diagnose. Because Lyme disease can manifest itself different in each person it infects, there is no hard and fast rule for a set of symptoms being cause for a blood test.
In fact, Lyme disease throws out the rule book for modern medicine. There is only one thing for certain - that nothing is certain. Each person is affected uniquely by the illness and the treatment is specific to each patient as well.
That being said, there is one thing I know, you do not have to have a bulls eye rash, a visible tick bite or flu like symptoms to have Lyme disease. It can be passed to children in the womb and they are researching whether it is sexually transmitted.
Lyme disease can also "co-infect" the patient with other tick borne illnesses simultaneously making the symptoms even more varied and wide.
First, if you are chasing a mystery illness that seems to continue progressing in intensity and increasing in variety of symptoms as doctors try to treat it, that is a strong indicator for Lyme.
Second, if you are a relatively healthy person but seem to continue getting diagnosis for autoimmune disorders - even just one, could also be indicative of Lyme.
Third, multiple unrelated symptoms that occur simultaneouly can point to Lyme. Doctors would tell me my list of indicators were "impossible" to happen concurrently and from one cause, but they were. Keep after it and trust your body and your instincts.
Finally, take your body temperature every morning when you wake up for a week. Low body temperature is a huge indicator of a disease environment in your body, especially pathogenic. Lyme thrives in a low temperature body.
