Any Paleos fighting/living with Lyme Disease? Diet helps?
I have been diagnosed with a recent ( past 1-2 months Lyme Disease infection) curious as to wether a Paleo diet is helpfull in combating this disease. On doxycycline for three weeks but then the approach is to wait and see if my symptoms go away.
Me! I worked on healing for 2 years, using cats claw. I didn't use antibiotics. I also supported my immune system using a wide range of supplements, under the care of a naturopath. I'd say cutting out the grains and dairy was the biggest help to my healing. Also, yoga. Stress reduction is vital in fighting this disease. I don't know that it'll ever be gone, however, I feel "normal" and am able to lead a normal life. I just had a baby and he is completely healthy, which says a lot about the health of my body. I cannot stress enough the importance of diet, NO sugar, relaxation/meditation, and supplemental support. Even if you are under the care of a Dr, I think it'd be nice to have a naturopath to give you alternate points of view and ideas for healing. This is just a disease that needs to be approached from all angles. My Lyme was chronic and I'd had it for about 1-2 yrs prior to diagnosis. That was a big reason I didn't use antibiotics. They aren't shown as effective in chronic Lyme.
I've been wondering for a while now, f it's also beneficial to cut out fruits?(maybe some occassionally)as fructose is a sugar too. On one hand our bodies need vitamins etc.,so I'm still debating if going VLC would be such a good idea. I'm also not sure how much grams of fat a regular person&Lymies need? My thinking pattern is my biggest stressor(I've done the chronic Cardioing&lowfat pre_Lyme&never enjoyed it.There's this constant voice in my head telling me I'll grow fat,without working out.I think there's also a connection with bad gut-flora/digestion&undernourishing myself,since I don't know when I'm hungry.Than after dinner I get the munchies and keep on snacking.). I'd like to be able to become strong,but I guess I must learn to accept that I'm just not gonna be able to get that athletic body and learn to love myself despite being able to do the whole Primal Lifestyle.
