Does Glutathione Help With Lyme Disease?
The following information is generally applicable, however, we always recommend you consult with your doctor for specific instructions in your case, especially if you are dealing with advanced stages of Lyme Disease.
So does raising your glutathione levels help with Lyme Disease?
This subject is not covered specifically in the current edition of Dr. Gutman's book, "Glutathione, Your Key To Health." So I did some research and here is what I came up with:
First of all, according to PubMed, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, "Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi (B. burgdorferi). Certain ticks carry these bacteria. The ticks pick up the bacteria when they bite mice or deer that are infected with Lyme disease. You can get the disease if you are bitten by an infected tick."
So the next question is "What effect does glutathione have on a bacterial attack on your immune system?" The answer is glutathione is food for your immune system, and is effective in helping your immune system to neutralize and destroy all pathogens, including bacterium, viruses, parasites and fungi. So glutathione will help you to fight the bacteria that causes Lyme Disease. You can learn more about this on our immune system page.
If you are suffering from Lyme Disease and you'd like to raise your glutathione levels to feed your immune system so it can fight off bacterium such as Borrelia burgdorferi that causes Lyme Disease, you can order a box of Glutathione Precursor here.
Lyme Disease is a serious condition and should not be treated lightly. We strongly encourage you to consult with your doctor to seek out other avenues of treatment that can be used along with glutathione supplementation for best results.
