Lyme disease can be confused with several other conditions especially when a person can not recall a tick bite and tests for the disease aren’t always reliable. The recommended dose of antibiotics may also not be 100 percent effective so researchers have looked for alternative treatments. Some early evidence has shown that stevia can kill the pathogen responsible for Lyme disease. The findings are promising but more research is required before any effective treatment using stevia can be implemented.
- Lyme disease is often referred to as the great imitator, because symptoms mimic those of other diseases, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus and thyroid disease.
- Treatment for the disease is scattershot, as standard testing misses about half the cases it tests for and antibiotic treatment is not proven to be entirely effective.
- The disease bacteria is capable of shifting into a dormant, round-bodied form that is far more difficult for antibiotics to kill.
“A 2015 study published in the European Journal of Microbiology and Immunology suggests we may need to shift our focus from antibiotics to plant extracts.”
