Energy Boosters

We all need energy.  Fighting fatigue is half the battle.  So we need powerful weapons in our arsenal!

B Vitamins

The B vitamins are directly linked to energy. According to Psychology Today, B-vitamin deficiencies can lead to "fatigue, irritability, poor concentration, anxiety and depression." It further says that B-complex vitamins, which include thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, B6, pantothenic acid, biotin, B12, folate and choline, are linked to crucial functions such as neurotransmitter production, metabolism and blood cell production. Getting enough B vitamins protects you against physical and mood-related ailments that can sap your energy. B vitamins are commonly added to bread and cereal products, but vegans, in particular, need to take B12 supplements, because it naturally occurs mainly in animal products.


Vitamin D

A Wake Forest University School of Medicine study shows a correlation between adequate vitamin D intake and physical performance. The research, conducted on a group of older adults who are more at risk for vitamin D deficiencies because of lower sun exposure and the fact their skin is less efficient at producing vitamin D, compared to young people, showed that physical performance and grip strength were about 5 to 10 percent higher in adults with higher levels of vitamin D.


Vitamin C

Vitamin C is important for energy because of its role in the growth and repair of body tissues, according to Medline Plus, an information service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Your body needs vitamin C to make collagen. According to Medline Plus, collagen is "an important protein used to make skin, scar tissue, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is essential for the healing of wounds, and for the repair and maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth." Without adequate vitamin C, you risk feeling run-down and unwell because your body is not healing and growing normally.


Ginseng is another great energy booster. Panax ginseng is the type that provides the greatest energy, although it is often thought that all types of ginseng provide energy support. It has multiple other benefits that have been discovered as well, although energy enhancement is still what it is primarily known and used for.
There are other health benefits that may be enjoyed from the use of panax ginseng that should not be overlooked. Early studies have shown it may benefit cognitive abilities such as memory and focus, and it has even been studied for its reported blood sugar stabilizing abilities.
Different types of ginseng, including panax, are also known to have antioxidant properties in the human body and may also boost your immune system.

The effectiveness of Samento, Cumanda, Burbur, and Dr. Lee Cowden's protocol in the treatment of chronic Lyme disease

by Suzanne Arthur


Candida, YAY!

Systemic Candida, yeast infections, jock itch, athlete's foot, sinus infections, ear infections.  YEAST!  Candida can wreak a lot of havoc in our bodies. It can create a lot of the same symptoms as Lyme Disease.  You can have systemic Candida and not know it by outward appearances, no obvious physical symptoms if you know what I mean (yeast infection).

Try  the GOOT recipe I have listed here @ Lyme Store for topical applications of yeast infections (ears, feet, vaginally, on your chest for colds, etc).  It works!  But attack Candida from all angles.  Be careful when cleansing yourself of Candida from your body as you can herx from the die off just like you an from lyme die off.  So start slow.  

Yeast Killers


You can take a simple saliva test for Candida.  But a good blood test & other tests by your LLMD or ND are probably in order.  Here is the saliva test.

Over the Edge: A Novel  Stolen from Amazon:

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Torn from the front lines of medical debate and the author's own experience with Lyme Disease, Over the Edge is riveting fiction, full of twists and turns—and powerful truths about today's medical field.  

Janessa McNeil’s husband, Dr. Brock McNeil, a researcher and professor at Stanford University's Department of Medicine, specializes in tick-borne diseases—especially Lyme. For years he has insisted that Chronic Lyme Disease doesn't exist. Even as patients across the country are getting sicker, the committee Brock chairs is about to announce its latest findings—which will further seal the door shut for Lyme treatment.  

One embittered man sets out to prove Dr. McNeil wrong by giving him a close-up view of the very disease he denies. The man infects Janessa with Lyme, then states his demand: convince her husband to publicly reverse his stand on Lyme—or their young daughter will be next. 

But Janessa's marriage is already rocky. She's so sick she can hardly move or think. And her husband denies she has Lyme at all.   

Welcome to the Lyme wars, Janessa.

" . . . a taut, heartbreaking thriller . . . Collins is a fine writer who knows how to both horrify readers and keep them turning pages. She'll gain new readers with this one . . ."

Publishers Weekly
"Over the Edge provides validation to any person who suffers from the long-term effects of Lyme Disease. While the story is based on Ms. Collins' own life experience, she builds a tense and dramatic novel that illustrates how a person can fall into the web of misdiagnosis and ineffective treatment."

New York Journal of Books
"This book stayed with me long after I put it down. Not only was it a page-turner, but the storyline about Lyme Disease was fascinating and eye-opening. I think Over the Edge will raise awareness about this horrible disease, and validate those who suffer with it."

Terri Blackstock, author of Predator and Intervention
"A frightening and all-too-real scenario. Very timely and meaningful book." (4 stars)

RT Book Reviews
"Over the Edge is an excellent mystery. [It] actively portrays the patient with the myriad symptoms seen in acute or chronic Lyme."

Dr. Nick S. Harris, president/CEO, IGeneX, Inc.

BioRay Brands

My very innovative LLMD (my first one) uses these BioRay products for her patients with Autism.  The majority of her patients ended up having Lyme Disease.  There are 2 of their products I would like to introduce.

Healthy Gut

We all know it is one of the most important factors in treating lyme.  As it is with most any illness.  After all, 80% of our immune system is in our gut.

This information below was taken from the manufacturers website to ensure accuracy. This is a different kind of probiotic. 


CytoFlora contains beneficial bacteria that have been cell wall lysed (decimated), releasing the vital substances and nutrients from the cell wall and cytoplasm. These immune system modulators exist inside the cell of healthy bacteria and are not readily available in most probiotic formulas.
CytoFlora assists in balancing the gastro-intestinal tract and creating an environment for live healthy intestinal flora to colonize. This proprietary manufacturing process makes CytoFlora a unique and potent lysed probiotic tincture.
Intake Instructions:

Children and Adults: Start with 13-52 drops (2 droppers full) twice a day in filtered water on an empty stomach constitutes the average dose for a 150 lb. adult with a good constitution. Do not use during pregnancy or while nursing unless supervised by a physician.
Sensitive Individuals: Initial dose is 6 drops working up to 5 squirts twice a day. Dosage is related to improvement.


Cell wall lysed lactobacillus rhamnosus, bifidobacteriumbifidum, lactobacillus acidophilus, bifidobacteriuminfantis, bifidobacteriumlongum, streptococcus thermophilus, lactobacillus plantarum, lactobacillus salivarius, lactobacillus reuteri, lactobacillus casei, lactobacillus bulgaricus, lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1 and lactobacillus sporogenes in a base of rice starch, ascorbic acid 5% and 18% grain neutral spirits as a preservative.  

** Remember you cannot have alcohol with Tinidazole or Metronidazole

For more information on the study that was done on children who took this product and how well it effected them, please see the manufacturers website.  There has been some scientific research done with amazing results:
I also recommend viewing an FAQ section on exactly how beneficial this product can be and why.  Also how it works.  Scroll down until you see CytoFlora.

Artemisia & Clove
People with Lyme Disease take this to help combat Babesia.  

Artemisia & Clove™ is a broad spectrum herbal supplement to balance unwanted organisms. This formula is carefully buffered for long term use with sensitive digestive tracts, while still maintaining their full strength of action against.

We all know how important probiotics are for everyone.  Let alone people on antibiotics, let alone people with Lyme Disease.  It is important to take a wide variety of probiotics.  Take at least 2 different brands & rotate them.  Also, drink things like kefir & kombucha to get additional strains of the "good" bacteria and in different ways.  Take your probiotics at least 2 hours away from your oral antibiotics.

S. Boulardii is important.  It is not easy to find in a health food store.  It is known to prevent & help combat the dreaded C. diff.  You would want to take this in addition to a probiotic with several different strains.  The infection usually occurs after the person has been started on broad spectrum antibiotics, which kill the good bacteria, allowing C. diff to take over. The bacteria release toxins which destroy the lining of the intestines, producing severe diarrhea and inflammation. With certain strains of the bacteria, infection can be overwhelming and deadly.

Below is THE BEST probiotic on the market.  You can't find it in health food stores.  Ortho Biotic is a probiotic that is formulated to NOT be refrigerated and for good reason. This is one of the most comprehensive probiotics out there. It's shelf stabilized, so it doesn't require refrigeration. What that means, as with any of the other shelf stabilized probiotics, is it has food in the pill to keep the bacteria alive (the alternative, of course, is to refrigerate the pills/bacteria so that they don't die). But refrigerating a probiotic introduces moisture which can cause another type of bacteria to start to grow which is no bueno for the bacteria we want.

These are a variety of other probiotics featuring different strains of bacteria.
