Lyme Disease and IV Hydration
In warm, humid climates, ticks are virtually unavoidable, lurking in wooded and grassy areas from backyards to public parks. A bite doesn’t take much; a few seconds off the beaten path or a picnic in the grass might be all you need to come face to face with a terrifying medical condition.
Despite the pain and inconvenience of a tick bite, the reality of the situation may be far worse. Many deer ticks that live within the United States carry Lyme disease, a potentially debilitating condition that, when left untreated, can be devastating.
The Reality of Lyme Disease
Lyme disease is transmitted through tick bites, stemming primarily from those that feed on deer, mice, raccoons, opossums, and skunks. With prevalence in much of the country, this unique threat poses risks to both children and adults, especially those who spend prolonged periods of time outdoors in warm weather. In order to contract Lyme disease, a tick much latch onto the skin for 24 to 48 hours, which is why most doctors suggest examining the skin for ticks immediately after the possibility of exposure.
Initial Lyme disease symptoms are similar to the common flu, including chills, fever, stiffness, fatigue, and muscle weakness. In 70% to 80% of cases, a very pronounced rash called erythema migrans forms, starting small and growing into what looks like a large bullseye, with an inner red patch surrounded by an outer ring.
Untreated Lyme Disease
When caught early, Lyme disease can be easily cured with antibiotics, but when the condition goes untreated, severe symptoms can develop. Many patients report complaints of extremely painful and swollen joints, neurological symptoms like temporary paralysis of facial muscles and a stiff neck, and cardiological conditions, like an irregular heartbeat.
Lyme disease presents itself differently from patient to patient, making symptoms challenging for doctors to diagnose. In addition, many patients mistake common symptoms for a cold or the flu, even when tick bites are present, and willingly choose to forgo treatment. As such, many cases of Lyme disease develop into serious conditions each year, causing devastating side effects in patients around the country.
Seeking Effective Treatment
In general, a course of antibiotics is used to treat Lyme disease. However, untreated cases may have progressed too far to respond to standard forms of treatment. In these cases, doctors must try alternate methods, generally by providing a combination of antibiotics and vitamins designed to eliminate symptoms and destroy the disease.
Common treatments include vitamin C and the use of glutathione, an antioxidant that supports phase one and phase two liver detox that has proven effective in revitalizing immune system function and relieving neurological symptoms associated with chronic infectious diseases. Generally given by IV, these kinds of supplements can spur positive responses in patients, leading to alleviation of painful symptoms.
Despite the largely unknown nature of chronic Lyme disease, the devastating effects have made recent headlines, raising awareness for the pain and anguish this condition can cause. Model Gigi Hadid announced in March of 2016 that her mother, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid, is suffering from untreated Lyme disease that has left her so affected that she is unable to read or watch television. Doctors are working tirelessly on a treatment for her condition and symptoms, but Yolanda’s progress has been slow and painful.
