Why You Need Seaweed in Your Anti-Lyme Disease Diet
For people who want to reduce fatigue and pain caused by Lyme disease toxins
By Greg Lee
I have a colleague that cleans up leftover chemical and biological weapons for the military. He goes to where people have discovered unexploded artillery shells on their property. He takes these dangerous explosives and defuses them. If they contain poison gas, he can also turn that into harmless vapor with the right chemicals. It’s all in knowing the right way to neutralize and dispose of these weapons safely.
How is cleaning up dangerous weapons similar to eating seaweed for a Lyme infection?
A Lyme infection creates toxins which can cause extreme pain or drain your energy
As you kill off a Lyme infection, your system gets inundated with the toxic pieces of the dead bacteria. These toxins can feel like a dangerous chemical weapon that has gone off inside your body. Antibiotics, herbal medicines, and other anti-Lyme treatments can lead to huge releases of these toxins. This kind of release can produce extreme pain, fatigue, or mental confusion. Some people can even have severe reactions like seizures, paralysis, or blindness.
People with Lyme disease are seeking ways to stop the effects of these toxins
Most people endure the toxic pain, fatigue, and mental confusion. This has been called the Jarisch-Herxheimer Reaction or Herx for short. Unfortunately, there are not many drugs that can help you to stop these toxins from poisoning your muscles, your joints, and your nervous system.
Can seaweed help you to reduce this toxic Herx reaction?
Researchers have found that seaweeds have unique compounds with special healing properties
Edible seaweeds have funny names like Konbu, Wakame, Dulce, Nori, Spirulina, and Laver. They contain a rich assortment of healthy minerals like iodine, iron, zinc, sodium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, phosphorus, and copper. They also have vitamins like A, C, and B12. These minerals and vitamins help strengthen your immune system. Their high fiber content is believed to help lower cholesterol and reduce elevated blood sugars.
Seaweed extracts called alginate, agar and carrageenan are used in meats, fish and poultry products, desserts, beverages, salad dressings, sauces, dietetic foods, dairy items, and baked goods. Preliminary research shows that newly discovered seaweed extracts have anti-bacteria properties.
Seaweeds are also used in Chinese medicine to reduce infections
Seaweeds have been use medicinally for over four thousand years in Chinese medicine. Many of these seaweeds have been used effectively to reduce swelling and inflammation in patients due to the effects of a Lyme disease infection.
Seaweeds can also help to eliminate toxins
In addition to reducing swelling, seaweeds also neutralize the toxins of painful Herx reaction. The seaweed extract alginate binds to harmful metals and toxins in your body and helps you to eliminate them safely. Because of this binding ability, it’s best to get seaweeds from oceans that do not have a lot of pollution. Seaweeds from Canada and the upper Northeaster United States contain very little impurities. Not only do they reduce toxins and inflammation, they can help you to uncover hidden Lyme bacteria. Another special quality that seaweed is used for is to soften and reduce tumors where pathogens can hide. Adding seaweed to your anti-Lyme diet can help clean out painful toxins.
Seaweed can help clean out the toxic pain and fatigue from a Lyme infection
Just like cleaning up dangerous chemical and biological weapons, seaweeds can help neutralize toxins from a Lyme infection. They help to reduce the pain and fatigue of a Herx reaction. Seaweeds also have a rich assortment of immune strengthening minerals and vitamins.
