“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
If by chance you find a tick embedded in your skin, remove it as soon as possible. The best way is to grasp it firmly with a pointy tweezer and pull straight up as shown:
Immediately after removing the tick, cover the area with a paste made from Bentonite (Montmorillonite) Clay. This clay has the ability to instantly draw out the poisonous bacteria. Bentonite Clay can both absorb and adsorb many times its weight, and hold the toxins taken in until your body can eliminate them. So by using it topically, you can draw out toxins from the skin, and by taking it internally, you can draw out toxins from within. This clay has many uses and is great for immediate relief of acid indigestion as well—it has a pH of 8+. Along with the clay, after drawing out the toxins—immediately spray the skin with colloidal silver. Colloidal silver was very popular before antibiotics. Colloidal silver is safe and effective against many bacteria and is a powerful anti-inflammatory. It also can be applied topically immediately following the clay, and then taken internally if desired. Remember—if you can draw out the bacteria as soon as you find the tick, or at least within 24 hours, you have a very good chance of eliminating the bacteria before they have a chance to multiply and colonize.

Sometime in the 1500s, during the European Renaissance, a master physician, alchemist, astronomer, and herbalist named Paracelsus made popular a theory he called the “Doctrine of Signatures.” He and many other herbalists believed that every plant was given a “signature” and the shape, color, texture, taste and habitat of the plant were a clue to its healing properties. For example, kidney beans are shaped like kidneys, walnuts look like the human brain, and Hawaiians regard the banana as a symbol of male fertility or “comfort with their maleness.”
The first case of Lyme disease occurred in Lyme Connecticut. According to the Invasive Plant Atlas of New England, the Japanese Knotweed plant populates many areas of the world, but the most concentrated growth occurs in areas where there is a high infestation of the Lyme bacteria Borrelia. Knotweed is native to Japan and other Asian countries and was brought to the United States for decorative and ornamental reasons, but it is now despised because it is invasive and suffocates all other plants nearby.
Japanese Knotweed grows rampantly in Lyme Connecticut.
“ Where there is disease you will also find the treatment”
If Lyme disease becomes chronic, the spirochetes travel to and colonize in many areas of the body; Japanese Knotweed herbal supplements are antibacterial and have the ability to cross the blood brain barrier and safely and effectively bind toxins. The supplements have become increasingly popular as potent antioxidants, cardiovascular system tonics, anti–aging tonics, and for the treatment of Lyme disease and Lyme’s related arthritis. It is suggested to use the whole root of the herb–benefits may be seen within two weeks to two months—work with a knowledgeable herbalist as far as dose and length of treatment.
Paracelsus probably never heard of “resveratrol” and you may not have either—but amazing studies have been conducted into the anti- aging, Alzheimer’s treating, cancer preventative, and longevity enhancing properties of this substance! The knotweed plant is the greatest source of resveratrol and there are indications that resveratrol influences many genetic pathways, which may explain its ability to lengthen life. In the current epigenetic studies of longevity, resveratrol is number one! Most resveratrol supplements sold in the U.S. are extracted from the knotweed plant.
There are other specific herbs that help with specific organs or areas affected. My favorite herb for heart issues is Hawthorn; my favorite all time supplement for the liver is Milk Thistle (which can even reverse cirrhosis and build muscle); and Rhodiola is an amazing adaptogenic herb, immune tonic, nervous system tonic, anti-depressant, brain protector, endocrine and adrenal protector, anti-cancer herb, and the list goes on. Buhner has this to say about Rhodiola (page 246):
“It is specific for chronic, long-term fatigue, recurrent infections, recovery from long-term illness and infections, nervous exhaustion, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic disease conditions with depression, low immune function, brain fog, acceleration of recovery from debilitating conditions.”
Again, from the previous article—the book:
Healing Lyme Disease Coinfections by Stephen Harrod Buhner
This book gives his personal natural healing protocol with many other herbs, supplements, and dosages. It is an amazing book with resources for buying the herbs and supplements he suggests, as well as a 113 page bibliography of references sited! If you know of anyone who is suffering from chronic effects of Lyme disease, this might be a great resource to share.
