Teasel Root and Lyme Disease

The usual preface about “I’m not a doctor” and “see a qualified practitioner” and ” statements not intended to diagnose or prescribe” blah blah blah.

I live right smack-dab in the middle of the Tick Belt here in the northeastern US.  This time of year, especially, it seems that everyone and his sister has a story about Lyme Disease.

Since I work in a health food store, I have access to a wealth of information about home remedies and herbal treatments.  Lately, my customers have been talking up Teasel Root for Lyme Disease and its co-infections.

Teasel is a prickly plant that once was used to tease or raise the nap on fabrics.

Several authors of books on herbal medicine have pointed to teasel as a key remedy in fighting Lyme:  Stephen Harrod Buhner, Wolf D. Storl, Matthew Wood.

Herbs of Light (www.herbsoflight.com) has a couple of products that you might consider if you are looking to treat Lyme naturally, including Teasel Root and Deer Tick Defense.

Be healthy!
