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.
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
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.
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.
Using a sauna may also help to: – Reduce inflammation – Stimulate the immune system for disease-fighting – Balance the autonomic nervous system
