Herbal support for those infected by borrelia burgdorferi spirochete insects, which leave a circular rash called erythema migrans; if left untreated the infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system. You can reduce your chance of getting Lyme disease by covering your skin when you’re outdoors, staying on footpaths and using insect repellent.
About your consultation and treatment options:
At your first appointment, a comprehensive medical history is taken, including about your lifestyle and diet. Where appropriate, a physical examination is carried out, which may confirm or complement the diagnosis of your General Practitioner (GP). A full range of private medical tests may be requested, should further investigations become necessary.
Please bring with you any prescribed medication, herbal supplements or results of any available medical exams, which assist in evaluating pharmacological interactions and contraindications, particularly if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. A suitable treatment plan is agreed with you to suit your health priorities and lifestyle choices as well as your budget.
Follow-up appointments may be required after a fortnight and subsequent visits may be every four, six, eight or 12 weeks, depending on your needs. If your health is stable, you will be posted repeat prescriptions.
Your prescription herbal medicine will consist of the best quality extracts available in terms of purity, the concentration of active ingredients, knowledge of traditional use and scientific data. You may be supplied with tablets, capsules, tinctures, fluid extracts, herbal teas, juices, distilled waters, aromatherapy essential oils or creams.
Honey is the most ancient antibiotic, as it was used for preserving the Pharaohs. Bees’ bellies secrete glucose oxidase, which mixes with pollens to form hydrogen peroxide, which destroys any microbes. Let us respect the bees!
