Make it a choice, a change for life, not a penance or another medicine. Healthy Food is a critical component to support your own wellness while you heal from Lyme.

You want  recovery to be as complete as possible.  Your body needs first rate nutrition to repair  the damage caused by the Lyme community and to make you less enjoyable home for Lyme disease.

Lyme disease is a squatter, it has moved in and set up a secret condo in your house.  It is a bad tenant.    Lyme disease will get in front of the line for nutrients.  It will steal from your body to do it.  You cannot starve lyme out.  But you can make your body a less pleasant place for Lyme to live and a more vibrant home for you.

People who have been sick along time are exhausted.  Their bodies are crying out for nutrients. They get weaker and weaker over time and systems start to fail.   To  help recover eat high quality  food with plenty of nutrients to satisfy Lyme and support repair and heal your body.

The wrong foods can fuel the cycle of inflammation that the Lyme community uses to elude your immune system.  The right foods support  stable blood sugar and low inflammatory response. Help your body  fine tune your immune response with low inflammation high nutrient density food!

What healthy food is can vary a bit plan to plan and from person to person.   But there are general guidelines that apply for anyone working to recover from chronic illness and inflammation.  Use them.   Consult with your health care team to dial in your diet for optimum health.
