How to Reduce Your Lyme Disease Muscle Pain Caused by Yeast & Antibiotics

For people with Lyme disease muscle pains triggered by a yeast infection
by Greg Lee


Imagine in colonial times that you are struggling with an exploding rat population that is eating crops, spreading disease, and crowding out the local wildlife. This actually happened in the Virgin Islands in the 1800’s. British settlers introduced mongooses to kill rats and save crops. Unfortunately, the rats slept during the day and hunted at night. Mongooses hunted during the day and slept at night. These mongooses ended up killing off more local birds and reptiles than pesky rats.

How is introducing the wrong predator similar to aggressive antibiotic treatment for Lyme disease?

Just like a mongoose that eats the wrong animals, harsh antibiotics for Lyme disease kill off your healthy bacteria
Antibiotics kill off harmful Lyme germs as well as beneficial bacteria. People who receive antibiotics for Lyme disease have had their healthy bacteria killed off and then harmful yeast grows in its place. In some patients, yeast have been found to infect the muscles, the brain, and in some cases colonizing the entire body. Unfortunately, wherever yeast grows, it can form painful oxalates.

Harmful yeast infections can form painful oxalates
Oxalates are a crystals that can form anywhere in the body. These crystals are created when fungi like yeast or molds produce oxalic acid, which can irritate tissues, muscles, and organs. This acid will bond to magnesium, mercury, or calcium to form crystals. These crystals can accumulate to form large oxalate stones, which have been found in the heart, in the nervous system, and in joints. These crystals can have sharp edges which are very painful. Not only fungi can create painful crystals, but also eating foods high in oxalates.

The wrong diet can also increase the size and pain of oxalates
When a person eats foods that are high in oxalates, they can accumulate these crystals. One of the most common examples is kidney stones. These stones can block the flow of urine or blood in different organs, which can also create pain.

What can help you to eliminate painful oxalates from your muscles and organs?

There are three main steps for reducing oxalates and preventing them from forming painful crystals

Step 1: Reduce or eliminate foods that are high in oxolates
Reduce or eliminate these foods that are high in oxolates: spinach, Swiss chard, tofu, peanuts, pecans, rhubarb, sweet potatoes, chocolate, instant coffee, leeks, tea, okra, wheat germ, lemon peel, lime peel, black pepper, and parsley. Avoid taking supplements with omega-6 because that increases oxalate formation.

Step 2: Take supplements which help to neutralize oxalates
Calcium citrate and magnesium citrate binds to oxalic acid in the digestive system and eliminates it through the stool. Lactobacillus is a probiotic that produces enzymes that breakdown oxalates. Taking omega-3 and cod liver oil prevents oxalate crystal formation. Vitamin B6 and the amino acid arginine also reduce oxalate crystal formation.

Step 3: Adjust your diet and supplements to prevent yeast overgrowth
When undergoing antibiotic treatment, taking ten of billions of probiotic organisms each day helps to replenishing your healthy bacteria population. Sufficient numbers of healthy bacteria stop harmful yeast from taking over. Reducing or eliminating foods like sugars, wheat, and dairy also helps to keep yeast in check.

These three steps help you to prevent painful oxalates from forming
You can avoid the mongoose – rat dilemma with the right steps to prevent painful oxalates from forming. Powerful antibiotic therapy for Lyme disease can produce a stubborn yeast infection. Yeast produce oxalic acid which is caustic and makes oxalate stones and crystals. Forming anywhere in the body, these stones can be painful due to their sharp edges or where they block the flow of urine or blood. Fortunately, a diet low in oxalates, the right supplements and probiotics, and eliminating foods that yeast feed on helps you to stop painful oxalates from growing in your muscles, joints, and organs.
