We’ll review Lyme disease long term symptoms and the all-natural herbal kit we designed to support treatment.
Lyme Disease Long Term Symptoms
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates from 2021 suggest roughly 476,000 people contract Lyme disease each year in the United States.
These numbers, driven by laboratory test data, may still underestimate the severity of the public health problem. Lyme disease diagnosis is complicated for several reasons. For one thing, many symptoms of Lyme disease are often found in other conditions. For another, Lyme disease tests measure immune response against the Lyme-causing bacteria, and tests may miss people who don’t have a clear immune response reaction.
Antibiotics also don’t always work to treat the disease, and for some people Lyme disease isn’t identified at an early stage. Some people have Lyme disease long term symptoms and don’t know what’s causing those symptoms because they haven’t been diagnosed. As a result, results may prove inaccurate for people with later-stage symptoms, such as neurological issues or arthritis.
In addition, the latency period, signs, and symptoms associated with Lyme disease can vary greatly from person to person. For example, a tick bullseye rash, or erythema migrans rash, occurs in only about 75 percent of people bitten by an infected tick, and it takes seven days on average for that rash to become visible.
What Happens When Lyme Disease Isn’t Treated
Lyme disease is an infectious disease caused by the bite of infected a black-legged tick that transmits the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium into the body. Occurrence of Lyme disease is often best treated if detected at an early stage with an antibiotic dosage within a time period of 10 to 14 days.
When the disease is left untreated, it could have a significant impact on essential body organs or systems that include the heart, joints, and nervous system.
Linden Botanicals owner Michael Van der Linden suffered from Lyme disease for almost four years. He experienced many Lyme disease long term symptoms, including joint pain, fatigue, and brain fog. He eventually learned about Phyllanthus niruri looseleaf herbal tea from the Peruvian Amazon.
Phyllanthus niruri, also called Chanca Piedra, has been used around the world to provide support for kidney stones and a variety of chronic illnesses. Research suggests that Phyllanthus niruri may be able to block the Lyme disease spirochete from replicating. It may interfere with the outer surface proteins that are integral to the ability of Borrelia burgdorferi to evade the immune system.
Michael read hundreds of articles about Phyllanthus niruri and then he drank the herbal tea to support his immune system health. The four years Michael suffered with Lyme disease were tough on his physical health, mental health, social life, and pocketbook. His battle with Lyme disease is the reason he started the company. Our first product was Phyllanthus niruri herbal looseleaf tea due to the plant’s antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-plasmodial properties.
Herbal Support for Lyme Disease Long Term Symptoms
In addition to Phyllanthus niruri, we researched and curated two other products that can provide exceptional support for long term Lyme disease symptoms: Cryptolepis and Cistus incanus.
- Phyllanthus niruri helps balance the immune system. It’s an antiviral, antimalarial, and antibacterial.
- Cryptolepis provides immune support against a wide range of health concerns, including Lyme disease, malaria, and bacterial and yeast infections.
- Cistus incanus offers significant immune support, dissolves biofilm, and supports mitochondrial health.
This trio of herbs functions as broad synergistic support for your health and wellness goals. Phyllanthus niruri is the great “unmasker” known for helping to alert the immune system to the hiding pathogen. Cistus incanus can help with the removal of biofilms and support mitochondrial health. Cryptolepis has the distinction of being the only herbal with reported activity against all forms of the bacteria that is at the root of Lyme disease.
Both Phyllanthus niruri and Cryptolepis support a healthy microbiome. Phyllanthus niruri supports the immune system adaptogenically. It can help quell an overactive system, as well as activate a system that has been turned off by a pathogen. Together, Phyllanthus niruri and Cistus incanus can support the liver and kidneys while the body “detoxes” during the elimination of the pathogen.
We sell all three of these products individually. We also sell them together in one kit called Persister Desister. Persister Desister Lyme Support Kits are a proprietary collection of all three time-tested herbal extracts: Phyllanthus niruri, Cryptolepis, and Cistus incanus.
Persister Desister Kits are designed to help address Lyme disease long term symptoms. The three herbal supplements in the kits can inhibit the lifecycle of persister bacteria, protect against free radical damage, and support kidney, liver, and mitochondrial health. This advanced immune support formula is designed to reengage your body’s natural defenses against persisting pathogens, inhibit the lifecycle of persister bacteria, and protect against free radical damage.
Persister Desister herbal supplement kits come in two sizes: 60g and 150g. The 60g kit offers approximately 40 days of support. The 150g kit offers approximately 100 days of support. Each Persister Desister kit contains individual packets of the three supplements, so you can choose to take them together or individually.
For example, we suggest that one combine the Cistus incanus and Phyllanthus niruri extracts in the container of your choice. Each morning, mix 1/4 teaspoon of this blend into hot water and drink it as a tea before eating. (It may also be added to a fruit juice, vegetable juice, or smoothie.) At night, mix 1/8 teaspoon of Cryptolepis into 8 oz. of hot water and drink it as a digestive.
Try Persister Desister
The Lyme disease epidemic is real, as are the Lyme disease long term symptoms many people experience.
Our Persister Desister trio of herbal extracts may help the immune system get back on track. These carefully selected herbal supplements may be able to help your immune system function optimally and “unmask” an agent that is hiding from your natural defenses. Working together with your body, the Persister Desister trio can disrupt a pathogen’s ability to hide in biofilms, interrupt the communication between pathogens, and degrade their ability to replicate.
