Detox 101

It's probably safe to assume that if you have Lyme Disease (or any disease for that matter), you are toxic.  Especially if you are actively treating your lyme.  There are several things that can aid your body in detoxification.  

Far Infrared Sauna
A FIR (Far Infrared) sauna  helps to detoxify using your bodies largest organ, your skin.  By allowing your body to sweat and push the toxins out through the pores, this bypasses the kidney's and the liver.  (Some people are sensitive to smells.  When you get a sauna like this, you should set it up & then run it in another room of the house (garage, outside, a closed bedroom with an open window) through several cycles on it's highest setting.  This is to expel any "off gassing" that may occur from the production process or the materials.  It is very simple to do & not a big deal.)

 In his book, Top 10 Lyme Disease Treatments, James Schaller, MD recommends Sauna Therapy by Lawrence Wilson.

Body Brushing
People swear by body brushing for detoxification.  You may learn how to do body brushing here:  
Another option is the popular coffee enema.  The best place to order your supplies & the organic coffee if from s.a. Wilsons.  The coffee made for enemas is not the type of coffee you would drink.  


A great book that related to coffee enemas is The Gerson Therapy. 
The main illness this book focuses on is cancer, however the therapy also relates to other illnesses as mentioned.  A lot has to do with building up the immune system by detoxifying.  This includes the coffee enemas and juicing.

Oral Detox
People swear by Burbur, Activated Charcoal, or Alka-Seltzer GOLD for helping to bring them out of a herxheimer reaction.

Home Remedies
Another great thing to try is lemon water.  Squeeze 2 lemons into about 1 cup of water.  Sweeten with Stevia.  Because the acids in the lemon can ruin your tooth enamel, drink it through a straw (to try to bypass the teeth) and then brush your teeth afterwards.  
You may also take an Epsom Salt bath.  Put 2 cups of Epsom salts into a warm bath and sit back and read a book.  Some people also add hydrogen peroxide and baking soda.
