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- http://www.homeopathicmd.com/
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.
