If left untreated, infection with the Lyme disease bacteria Borreliella burgdorferi can lead to long-term health problems.

Lyme disease, also known as Lyme borreliosis, is the most common vector-borne disease in the United States, with an estimated 476,000 cases per year. The Lyme disease bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi, is spread through infected tick bites. The bacteria is common in the northeastern, mid-Atlantic, and north-central parts of the U.S.

Unfortunately, global efforts to curb Lyme disease bacteria infections have not been successful, largely due to human demographics, microorganism adaptation, and insufficient funding of Lyme disease research.

Lyme Disease Signs and Symptoms

Be sure to look out for common symptoms of Lyme disease, including fever, bullseye rash, facial paralysis, and arthritis. If left untreated, infection with the Lyme disease bacteria Borreliella burgdorferi can lead to health problems affecting the skin, joints, nervous system, or even the heart. While most people recover from Lyme disease after antibiotic treatment, others experience chronic health problems that can last months to years.

These more severe Lyme symptoms can include:

  • Severe headaches and neck stiffness
  • Additional rashes on other areas of your body
  • Intermittent pain in nerves, tendons, muscles, joints, and bones
  • Heart palpitations or an irregular heartbeat (Lyme carditis)
  • Dizziness, shortness of breath, and fatigue
  • Inflammation of the brain and spinal cord
  • Shooting pain, numbness, or tingling in the hands or feet
  • Brain fog and short-term memory problems

If you think you may have a tick bullseye rash or any Lyme symptoms, get medical help. A doctor can run the ELISA test to detect antibodies against the bacteria and confirm with a Western Blot test to give a diagnosis.

Phyllanthus niruri for Lyme Disease Support

Phyllanthus niruri, also known as Chanca Piedra, is an herbal tea and extract common to Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine. It is used to treat a variety of health defects due to the presence of antibiotic compounds that give it its medicinal properties. Some of the bioactive compounds found in the herbal extract are alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins, saponins and glycosides.

Phyllanthus niruri for Lyme Disease Support

Lyme disease is best treated in its very early stages, as Lyme treatment with antibiotics alone may kill the Lyme disease bacteria.

Michael Van der Linden, owner of Linden Botanicals, suffered from Lyme disease for almost four years. After antibiotics proved ineffective, he chose a different path. He drank three cups of Phyllanthus niruri tea a day. Within 90 days of drinking Phyllanthus niruri tea, he was free of the Lyme disease bacteria. His personal experience, along with the science behind Phyllanthus niruri and his desire to help others, is the reason he started Linden Botanicals.

Phyllanthus niruri has been used around the globe to address kidney stones and a variety of chronic illnesses. Its antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-plasmoidal qualities can help to attack the spirochete that causes syphilis. With 100+ bioactive compounds, it’s not a hammer that pounds pathogens. Instead, its elegant mechanisms may block the Lyme spirochete from replicating and interfere with the outer surface proteins (OSPs) that are integral to the ability of Borrelia burgdorferi to evade the immune system.

Phyllanthus niruri may be the world’s best synergistic adaptogen, and it may offer more health benefits than any other plant. For example, Panax Ginseng, the most famous adaptogen, contains 28 types of saponins, whereas Phyllanthus niruri contains 168 different active compounds. That’s 6 times as many.
