Protecting Yourself from Lyme Disease

In the Northern Hemisphere we’ve entered the Lyme time of year — when ticks connect to skin, transmitting all manner of unpleasant parasites, spirochetes and protozoa. I have so many clients suffering from or who recently recovered from Chronic Lyme Disease, and I know that people grow afraid to spend any time in Nature, lest they encounter another tick. Unfortunately, most Lyme folks really need the grounding that Nature provides, and living in fear of Nature does nothing to heal the disease or bring joy to life.

I’ve had some ongoing conversations both locally and on the popular Healing Lyme Disease post of this blog. I’ve shared with people that before I go into the woods, I affirm that I am of different vibration than Lyme Disease and that ticks cannot get near me. Since I began doing this last year, I’ve not had any ticks on me, even when everyone else I go out with does. I also slather myself with various essential oils, including lavender, which supposedly repels ticks, but I believe it’s the vibrational energy that really does the trick.

Reader Mia shared a protocol from her homeopathic MD, and I felt it was important enough to bump up into its own post. This protocol addresses what to do if you find a tick attached to you. I received Dr. Whitmont’s permission to share the steps here. By way of introduction, though, here’s what Mia has to say about him:

I just thought that I would like to highly recommend Dr Ronald Whitmont to any of your Lyme readers who might be looking for treatment.

He is a homeopathic MD, and is a LLMD (Lyme literate doctor), who uses homeopathy to treat his patients.

He prescribes one medicine at a time, which is so nice not to take a ton of supplements, vitamins and remedies every day! (at one time I was up to close to 20!) He is also available for phone consultations for treating long distance.

Dr Whitmont is very intelligent, full of integrity, insightful, a wonderful listener, kind, gives great medical advice and personal advice, and cares for and treats the whole person.
He has been a huge support in my life, and I have made a lot of progress in the past two years with his treatment. I have been learning a lot about myself, and healing, through his counseling, and patient support.

I have a tremendous respect for Dr Whitmont and feel that he is a very valuable resource for people with Lyme; as well as a model of what an authentic, educated, and quality doctor can be. To me, Dr Whitmont, through his personality/style, and education and background, bridges and combines both the scientific/rational/physical aspects of health and healing, with the emotional, mental and spiritual realms.

Thanks Laura, for being such a supporter and resource for Lyme people, and for sharing information on your blog πŸ™‚

Also, Here is his website-
He has written some very informative articles on Lyme there, and other good health articles.

Dr. Whitmont’s Tick Bite Protocol for Lyme Prevention:

β€œYes, I recommend Ledum 200c if there is a new tick bite. I also recommend squeezing the bite site to express any fluid or serum and then applying a bandage with raw honey on top and leaving it on for at least 24 hours. The honey is extremely important because it functions as an antibiotic, plus it has an extremely high osmotic index that pulls fluids, toxins, bacteria and microbes directly out of the bite site.”

Mia shares an experience after her dog caught Lyme Disease:

“…after one or two days of giving the Ledum 200c to my dog, he was back to his normal bright eyed, prancing, happy self! His leg had been dangling with a limp, and he had trouble standing up, as well as lethargy.

This works!!! πŸ™‚ ”

Laura again here: I haven’t tried this approach myself, not having found any ticks on me, but I plan to get some Ledum 200c for my emergency supplies. When I realized in early 2013 that I had contracted Lyme Disease in the Fall of 2012, I managed to clear it with teasel root, lifestyle shifts, and releasing some very draining relationships. It took me two months of treatment with some pretty severe die-off, wicked headaches and joint pain, but it did go. I tested myself awhile later with the highest doses of teasel root to see if I had any die-off, and I had none. No more symptoms, either, so I consider myself cured. And lucky to have done so relatively quickly. I have some clients who’ve had Lyme for 20+ years before they contact me! If this Ledum 200c works so fast, it could potentially revolutionize outdoor activities for the Lyme aware.

As usual, I’m not offering diagnosis, prescription or medical advice … just sharing … but I am happy to post Dr. Whitmont’s protocol. Thanks to Mia for bringing it to my attention, so that I could share the information with others. Now, go: enjoy Nature and rejoice in the beauty of our Earth!

October 2017 UPDATE: I recently found an Organic Daily Post article that collates tips on repelling ticks from your body and yard, how to know what kinds of ticks live in your area, as well as additional information on healing Lyme disease. In the case of Lyme disease, an ounce of prevention is worth several tons of cure. Please click here for this gathering of links.

  1. Laura, thank you for the information on Lyme disease healing and prevention. I agree with your vibration insight. I recently researched the origins of Lyme disease–it was created by a German paperclip scientist, Erich Traub, on Plum Island, NY. They sprayed tics with the germ warfare. The tics attached to the deer, as planned. What wasn’t planned for–the scientist didn’t realize that deer swim. They swam to CT, NY land and the spread of this disease commenced. Today, I believe that Homeland Security is housed on Plum Island.
    A good resource is
    In so many cases–prevention is information. I wonder if the germ warfare researchers developed an antidote–that remains secret?

    oops, meant to put my comment here…Thanks again for writing a great article!
    Have a great day!

  3. Thanks, Rebecca. Yes, I learned of this at a Lyme Conference I spoke at in January 2011. The top doctors at that conference mentioned that you can tell it is a genetically modified organism because of the strange DNA “tail” at the end of the sequence. One wonders that the very same government that developed the disease is also so involved in denying its existence… it’s been a boon for BigPharma, because people are often on 12 or more medications at once all treating symptoms but not the root cause. Sick. Thanks for the links.


  4. Posted it here instead! Blessings and thanks … Laura


  5. Reblogged this on Reiki Dawn and commented:
    Had to share this post from Laura Bruno’s blog. Having lived in various areas that are particularly prone to ticks and Lyme Disease I think this is such a fantastic helpful article.

  7. I have to completely agree with Laura on this one. I no longer live in fear, particularly about lyme disease recurring. I have found that by raising my vibration in every way, from my thoughts, to my lifestyle, to my awareness of old patterns and behaviors, starting with a solid meditation, prayer and grounding routine each day, setting the intention that I am healthy has made an enormous difference. Bringing joy back into my life has been the most healing. Laura would tell me that I was a “creator” and that I needed to create in order to heal. I didn’t understand at the time. I remember, while being completely bedridden and barely able to function, and Laura would tell me that some of the greatest creators of all time such as Matisse, did it from bed while they were ill. That was life changing. Now, that I’m in a very different space in a short amount of time, I can share that reconnecting with your passion, your purpose, your joy is the key to healing lyme disease. Yes, you must have a healthy foundation yet the rigid lyme protocols create more stress on the body. The energy of deprivation is the opposite of healing energy. And, obviously the vibration of fear is the opposite of a healing frequency. With me, Laura’s focus was far more on the mind and to me that is how I have recovered. Taking control of my mind and bringing it on board with my body. Changing my thoughts, my attitudes, my patterns and my behaviors, and reconnecting with my true soul’s purpose, has been miraculous. In the throes of lyme, it is virtually impossible to imagine anything other than the darkest despair and hopelessness. Yet I’m living proof that it can be done. If I can do it, anyone can do it. I look forward to sharing more through webinars and podcasts that are in the works. I highly highly highly recommend Laura Bruno. Absolutely brilliant!


  8. Thank you, Catherine! I was just talking about Matisse again this morning. πŸ™‚


  9. Of course you were!!! Love you. I share that one with my lymies often. Just had 3 calls today and always sharing your amazing wisdom. Much love

    For someone with Lyme for 3 years, does Ledum 200c work? Or do you need more at that point? I just passed the word to my sister, along with it being the Homeopathic Medicine for Lyme. I think she is looking into it now because she got really quiet in texting.

  16. Thanks, PeaceNowFlower. That would be a question for the Dr. since it is his protocol. πŸ™‚

    Its okay, my sister is not yet ready to listen to me about this kind of thing. She worked hard to get a special Lyme Doctor in her area who is giving her care that she doesn’t want to interfere with. Hopefully he knows his stuff.
