This Plant Can Treat Lyme Disease Better Than Antibiotics!
Lyme disease is a human infectious disease caused by bacteria from the Borellia type and is spread by ticks. Data from the CDC says that more than 300 000 people around the world are infected with Lyme disease annually. The disease is hard to detect as the symptoms often mimic other diseases. Lyme disease is highly dangerous and can even be fatal if left untreated.
The main symptoms of Lyme diseases are fever, muscle aches, chills and sweats, joint pain, nausea and skin rashes in the form of a bull’s eye. Doctors usually treat Lyme disease like any other type of infection – with antibiotics. However, this is not the best course of treatment as it only treats the superficial symptoms, leaving the disease to wreak havoc inside the body. Luckily, there is something that can help. According to a recent study, stevia leaves extract is highly effective against the Borellia bacterium and can treat Lyme disease.
The study was conducted at the University of New Haven. The scientists put the extract against alcohol extract and conventional antibiotics, and the results showed that the stevia extract had the best results by far. The Borellia Burgdorferi bacterium has many forms and is highly resistant to antibiotics, so it’s very hard to treat. However, the stevia leaf extract can destroy it pretty efficiently and quickly.
In the study, 10-20% of the Lyme disease patients that were given antibiotics in a period of 2-4 weeks had experienced adverse side-effects which put their health at further harm. They experienced muscle and joint pain as well as fatigue, which lasted for more than 6 months. Those who were given the stevia leaves extract experienced no such symptoms. According to the scientists, the extract is full of phytochemicals and has antibacterial properties which can destroy any type of bacteria including B. Burgdorferi.
Although the study was done on a pretty small scale, it can certainly be a basis for a bigger research. The results are pretty conclusive, and the scientists are sure that further research will confirm what they already know – that stevia leaf extract is the most powerful natural remedy against Lyme disease.
