What is Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection transmitted by ticks, also known as deer ticks, or black-legged ticks. These tiny arachnids are typically found in wooded and grassy areas. Lyme is found throughout the United States, as well as in more than sixty other countries. Lyme Disease is caused by Borrelia Burgdorferi, a spirochete bacteria similar to the bacteria that causes Syphilis. Lyme Disease is known as the “Great Imitator” and can can masquerade as Attention Deficit Disorder, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Alzheimer’s Disease, Schizophrenia, Depression, Multiple Sclerosis, arthritis, heart conditions, and more. Symptoms include, fever, skin rash, muscle pain, fatigue, body aches, chills, numbness, headache, swelling of joints, heart problems, hepatitis, Arthritis and eye inflammation. Lyme disease is not contagious and removing the tick as soon as possible, may prevent infection. Immediate treatment is critical, as delays can cause the bacteria to spread to joints, heart and nervous system.
Garlic is a natural remedy, which is safe, effective and inexpensive in helping to treat Lyme disease.

It helps to reduce inflammation and fight bacterial infection caused due to Lyme disease. Garlic contains sulphur which is secreted in body sweat which in turn, can repel insects naturally.
