The natural treatment for lyme disease in dogs, or in anyone, offers the best prognosis. This article attempts to explain why this is true.
Lyme disease is a disease which is transmitted by a tick bite when the tick is a carrier. Not all ticks, by any means, are. It’s usually the very small ticks, or the nymph ticks that are. But that is just the beginning of the story.
It isn’t just the tick, although the carrier tick signals the start of the process. How good your immune system is the other, very important factor in the equation.
All of us have evolved with an innate ability to prevent disease, to deal effectively with pathogens and to heal ourselves. If this wasn’t true, we all, dogs included, would have died out long ago, because our world is teeming with pathogens. Most of them are unknown. Only a tiny percent of them are known about.
The medical/veterinary approach to this problem, as to all other problems, is to kill the pathogen. Perhaps killing the messenger is a more appropriate term, as this is exactly what’s happening here. The tick bite, resulting in the lyme disease, is a message that your dog’s health, their immune system, was not strong enough to deal with it effectively, as it has evolved to do.
So their approach is to use antibiotics, if necessary in ever strong doses. The trouble with this idea is that it doesn’t deal with the cause. Sure, antibiotics kill off the bacteria, but the cause remains – the sequel of the bite.
The effect of antibiotics is devastating to the body, particularly to the gut bacteria. And that has a deleterious effect on the health of the immune system, dropping it down a notch or three. And so worsening the already poor health of the dog. This isn’t immediately obvious, but it means your dog will be more prone to more health issues.
So what are the sequels of a bite, especially a tick bite from a lyme disease carrier? Fatigue, muscle aches, joint pain. difficulty moving muscles in the face and legs, and headaches are reported in humans, so there is no reason to suppose they are different in dogs.
Fever is often a reaction too, but normally this is in the early days. A strong fever following the bite indicates a good strong immune system and, if left alone, can be the best natural treatment for lyme disease in dogs. But neither most people nor vets can leave a fever alone. Therein lies one major problem.
Interference with the natural process.
Monitoring the fever is more appropriate.
It isn’t always possible to know when a tick has bitten us, let alone a furry animal such as a dog. When a tick is found, you don’t know how long it has been there. Some ticks are very small. There is generally little to no irritation at the site in the early days.
So what is the best solution to this growing problem?
First, make sure your dog has a natural, quality, species-specific diet. The common commercial dog foods are not natural, not quality (whatever the price tag) and are not species-specific. This means they will keep your dog alive (just) but won’t keep them healthy.
Secondly, use the holistic modality of health care, homeopathy, to treat the problem. Homeopathy works by dealing with the cause of any problem and by treating your dog as the individual they are. Homeopathic treatment gently stimulates the immune system to a stronger level, enabling it to work more effectively.
