Step 3 for what to do after getting bitten by a possible lyme-carrier is DETOXING. You are aware of the signs and severity of the situation and you’ve attacked the infection. Now you must help your body get all those toxins etc out of the body. As Dr. Rachel West says, “Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with cholitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.”
A few great ways to remove toxins from the body are as follows:
Neuro-Antitox II– The main ingredient, Silphium, has been shown through clinical research to be possibly the greatest anti-neurotoxin substance found to date. Silphium is thought to breakdown and/or bind microbial neurotoxins. It has demonstrated stellar results in the elimination of the primary toxins released by Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative microbe in Lyme disease, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS and over 350 neuro-toxic illnesses.
Molybdenum– This is a trace mineral that can dramatically aid in the detoxification of the toxins caused by the dysfunction of multiple tissues in chronic illness.
Hydrogen Peroxide and Epsom Salt Baths– Not only does this bath detoxify the body and relieve pain, but it seems to also stop many infections quickly and help the body regain balance.
Infrared Saunas– Researchers have long told us how the body sweats out toxic substances, including heavy metals. As long as you maintain proper hydration, the more you safely sweat, the more toxins you’ll expel from your body. And what is one of the safest and most effective methods for inducing a detoxifying sweat? A sauna, of course. In sauna detox, your body sweats out numerous toxins through pores. But not all sweats are the same; and neither are all saunas.
It is believed that Sunlighten saunas are seven times more effective than a traditional sauna. It is commonly thought that sweat from traditional saunas is 95 to 97% water with salt making up a part of the rest. Far infrared saunas are believed to be more effective in moving toxins through the skin than traditional saunas because in a far infrared sauna only 80 to 85% of the sweat is water with the non-water portion being cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid.

PRO TIP: Take the Online VCS Screening Test to measure your ability to see details at low contrast levels to be used as a nonspecific test of neurological function. The results of the test can then be used as an aid in the diagnosis of visual system dysfunction, which can be a symptom of lyme.
