Is Sauna Good for Lyme Disease? (What The Latest Research Says)

When used in conjunction with conventional antibiotic treatment, infrared saunas are helpful in treating deer tick-borne Lyme disease. They aid in raising the core body temperature to 106°F which will kill Borrelia burgdorferi and remove neurotoxins.  

What is Lyme disease?

Lyme disease is a vector-borne bacterial infection (caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi) that is transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected black-legged tick. 

What are the symptoms of Lyme disease?

Common early (3-30 days) Lyme disease symptoms include: Fever Headache Fatigue Muscle and joint aches Swollen lymph nodes

Severe headaches  Neck stiffness Nerve pain Brain and spinal cord inflammation Facial palsy Lyme carditis Arthritis More EM rashes

Common late-onset (1 month+) Lyme disease symptoms include:

1. Blood tests to check for Lyme disease and monitor your condition during treatment. 2. Finding and removing the tick (if it’s still attached). 3. A short stint of oral antibiotics (doxycycline or amoxicillin) to stop the growth of bacteria. 4. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug.

What is the current treatment process for Lyme disease?

Can sauna help treat Lyme disease?

A 2020 research study suggested that pairing an anti-microbial-based protocol with infrared sauna exposure can help to treat the symptoms of Lyme disease.
