Condition: Treatment of lyme disease

DESCRIPTION: Oral antibiotics are the standard treatment for early-stage Lyme disease. These usually include doxycycline for adults and children older than 8, or amoxicillin or cefuroxime for adults, younger children, and pregnant or breast-feeding women. These drugs often clear the infection and prevent complications. A 14- to 21-day course of antibiotics is usually recommended, but some studies suggest that courses lasting 10 to 14 days are equally effective. Lyme disease can be treated successfully with antibiotics when - and if - it is caught early, while the Lyme spirochetes are still in the patient's bloodstream and can be reached by antibiotics. If the disease goes undiagnosed, the spirochetes, (which are related to those that cause syphilis), can infiltrate the non-blood areas of the body, such as the nervous system, brain, heart, joints, and cartilage. The disease then becomes a multi-symptom, multi-system illness that wreaks havoc upon nearly all of the patient's tissues and organs. Detoxifying Lyme biotoxins, mold, candida, heavy metals and other environmental toxins. J. Burrascano, M.D., in his 2008 revised treatment guidelines for Lyme disease, puts alpha-lipoic acid in the 'required' supplement category. alpha-lipoic acid reverses nerve damage in several ways. First, by restoring normal glucose levels and getting rid of the cell-damaging free radicals (and in this regard it also can reverse other kinds of damage in the body), but also by increasing nerve conduction.
